Editor's Note--Zing! Zap! Zoom! Mawwww money. Still. Again. 2-1, and another winning week for the "controversial conquistador", the "stellar star", the "handsome handicapper", and all the other mutha jazz, people want to say and write. But the best part? He ALWAYS kills it in the NFL the last 2 weeks of the regular season!! Guess where we are? Yep. The 1st of the 2 last weeks of the NFL regular season. He likes to go with some theory about a team neeeeeeding a game? I really don't even care anymore. I just listen to him, place my order with my broker, and collect a few hours later. Good lord. A few people (poor ones, no doubt) take issue with his sometimes simplicity. Don't fight the tape, baby. Do all your analysis paralysis, and come back to me after the games. Actually, don't come back to me. Go to him. If he hasn't bought another island by then....Who is He? Ahhhh I don't even have to say. Go get it, my man. Again.--R.B.
Richie, thank you so much for the kind words again. And thank you so much AGAIN for your astute reading of your local paper, which this past Sunday morning stated in a headline "Dolphins MUST Win or Else". We promptly added the Pats as another selection to our "insiders clu, b playsand voila ANOTHER winner. OUTSIDE of the winners we already gave out! Great stuff. But now we have one of our favorite weeks of the year. And here we go.......
Speaking of those VERY Dolphins, they are still alivein the NFL playoff hunt! Which reminds us of Virgil Sollazzo so perfectly saying in "The Godfather" about Don Corleone, "FIVE shots and he's still ALIVE?!" The Dolphins neeeeeeeeeeeed to win their next 2 games and neeeeeeeeeeeeeed help from other teams to make the playoffs. They lay 7 to the VIKINGS. Quick. Who is the hottest team in the NFL against the spread right now?!? Yep. MINN-UH-SODAHH. Won't be shocked in the least, if the VIKES win this game outright. TAKE!
You know who else is still alive? The Cleveland Browns!! Hey, Johnny Football, lead the Browns to the playoffs!! Of course, you neeeeeeeeeeeeed to win the next 2 games and get a TON of help, but g'head. Lead em. You know what's scary? The PANTHERS are 5-8-1, fighting for a division title, might not have their starting QB, and might not even neeeeeeeeeed to win the game to win the division! Lay it with CAROLINA, pal. Let's see if Johnny Football throws for more than 3 net yards, too. Eh??!?!
Finally, that was a fine performance by the Bills vs Green Bay last Sunday. Buffalo is still alive! But they neeeeeeeeeeed to win both of these next 2 games, and get a bunch of help, too. You know we have not been afraid to take DA 2-12 RAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYDUHSSSSS all year now. Maybe that's because they are 7-7 versus the spread?!?! Which means they always give us a shot. We like shots. We also like OAKLAND getting 6 at home versus a Buffalo team that DESPERATELY needs the game. Take the home dog, baby. TAKE.
Happy Recap: MINNESOTA+7 @ miami, CAROLINA-4 vs Cleveland, and OAKLAND +6 vs Buffalo.
We'll be back on Christmas Eve with some College Bowl picks, and some NFL picks. In the meantime, don't fight these picks, friend. Just do it. Richie B? It might be time to whip out some of your prized outfits that Mr Perry is wearing in this video below. Yes, we've put this tune up before, but it's always such a good message and soooooooo relevant. Good luck and god bless. See you Wednesday.
