Editor's Note-- Let me be the first to say, Big D has had 3 weeks of picks in the NFL and his record is 7 and LUCK. That's 7 wins and 2 losses by Andrew Luck, QB of the Colts. One time we were for 'em, another agin' em. Lost both times. We think if we had a "little less" LUCK we'd be perfect this season. And we are correct. Now the 3 selections for NFL Week 4 are about to be revealed. I dont know about you, but 7-2 so far, has me throwing large cocktail parties. Enjoy...Again. Still.--R.B.
Mr Luck struck again. This time beating us by leading his team to a winning TD instead of coughing one up in Week 2. We're not playing the Colts this week. We need a different kind of luck.
The Panthers looked a little frazzled last week, no? (A Big D smashing victory outright, whilst getting 6.5 with the Vikings). Now they sachet down to HOTLANTA and take on their rivals, the FALCONS. No, the FALCON defense isn't winning any prizes yet, but MATTY "ICE" RYAN sure is in midseason form.The home team and the underdog do well in this series. Will you look at that? ATLANTA IS the home team AND the 3 point dog. Thus, we take friends. Thus, we take.
19-7 and 8-27. Are those special combinations to the jewels in Raiders of the Lost Ark? Maybe. But what we are thinking is those are numbers leading to some gold in one of Sunday's games. One team is 19-7 their last 26 when playing on the road versus a team with a LOSING record. Pretty impressive, eh? Well the 8-27 is even more impressive. Or shall we say "unimpressive"? Cause that team is 8-27 at home vs teams with a LOSING record. Can you say "playing waaaaaaaaaaay down (and worse) to your competition"?!?!? Can you say the CLEVELAND BROWNS ( a near outright winner getting 10 last week at Miami, and ANOTHER Big D winner!!!) are the 19-7 team and the Washington Redskins are the 8-27 team? Oh, can you say Washington lays 8 to CLEVELAND? Can you say "poof". That's the sound of people RUNNING, not walking, to the windows to invest....Take.
Finally, the Cards have gone UNDER their last 8 home games. The Rams have gone UNDER their last 6 vs the NFC West. We like those kind of numbers, and that kinda party, baby. UNDER 43 in the desert!
So the 3-0 LUCKY recap: ATLANTA+3 vs Carolina, CLEVELAND+8 at Washington, and UNDER 43 Arizona/Los Angeles.
So no "Mr. Luck" this week, but how about some "Lady Luck"? For those of you youngsters, this is a LIVE recording 50 years ago in front of a few thousand folks. That might sound better than the studio version. Actually it does.Good LUCK and god bless.
