Editor's Note--Well a little late this week on the Big D releases this week, but it was difficult to find him. I mean after all, the week he had last week is another one of those legendary weeks. Oh sure he went 2-1 with the NEED games he posted. But 1) Philly was the lone loss, and by the time the game started it wasn't even a NEED game, and 2) didjas take his advice that went "if the Chargers, Seahawks, and Bears all NEED their games when they play, bet against them". Um, didjas do that? Cause that's a snappy 5-1 from where I sit. Big D is awash with champagne and now that it's New Year's Eve? Fughedaboutit. We barely got any words out of him this week, but we kinda knew what he was going to say in the NFL.
On behalf of all of us here at www.monkeybusinessblog.com, we wish you and yours a VERY Happy, Healthy, and Fortunate New Year. Now I'd like to pad my wallet (that I can't close) with MORE money, Large Richard. So what say you?--R.B.
Well Richie, I'm slurring my speech, burp. My eyes are bloodshot. And you are right, I don't NEED a lot. But that doesn't mean I won't take more. One game in the NFC has 2 teams that NEED the game, so they cancel out. 5 teams in the lovely AFC NEED the game, yes? We'll go against all 5 for a WHOPPER of a New Year's gift.
So it's all quite simple: MIAMI-2 vs jets, HOUSTON+3 vs Tennessee, BALTIMORE -2.5 @ Cincy, SAN DIEGO+3 @ Oakland, KC+3.5 @ Denver.
Good luck, god bless, Happy New Year, and all that jazz. Pass the lobster and the champagne.
