Editor's Note--Sweet mother of Hay-Zeus! 3-0 in the NFL. The lock of the YEAR! The teams who NEEEEEDED all showed up like the Big Fella said they would. BADLY. BIGLY BADLY. Buffalo, Carolina, Minnesota. Weeeeeeeee waaaaaaaaaahhhh. And all right in time for the Christmas spirit, no less!!! Is it gameday yet?!? The bookies have to be shuddering. Again. Still. Well enough of the wallet busting talk from me. Let's go hear the Big Kahuna (Hawai'ian for expert in his field) his damnself! The floor is yours, Big D. The globe is yours as a matter of fact!!--R.B.
Thank you Richie. What a nice week to go 3-0 eh? Mele Kalikamaka indeed! This tried and true system of going against the team who neeeeeeeeeeeds, proves itself again. Now we have Week 17. The final week. And well then, 2 teams NEEEEEEED the game.
Wasn't it just a few years ago, that the Redskins were playing for "nothing" in the last game, where the GIANTS needed a win? And you know what happened......Yes. Bye bye NY. Now, the roles are reversed. The GIANTS are safely in the playoffs. The 'Skins neeeeeeeeeeed to win to get in. So the oddsmaker puts the line at......8.5!!! What planet are we on people?!? This is the NFL. Not high school. If we hadn't already hit our LOCK of the YEAR last week, THIS might've been it. Too many pal. GGGGGGGGGG-MENNNNN!
The Buccaneers neeeeeeeeeed to win at 1pm eastern and then have the GIANTS and Redskins tie at 4pm eastern. And then have some other things happen. Too complicated to explain in these pages. However, Tampa is still TECHNICALLY alive. We loved going against stinky CAROLINA all year (including last week!). But THIS is the type of game, CAM NEWTON pads the stat book with. The line you ask? The sneaky, dreaded "6". The PANTHERS will build on something for next year, and people's jobs are on the line in CAROLINA. They spoil the Tampa party. Takey take.
Finally, Detroit and Green Bay may both neeeeeeeeeeeed the game Sunday night. But that doesn't work for our system. It is a nice warm dome in Detroit. With Stafford and Rodgers "gunslinging". BUT, hold up, friend. 5 out of 7 in this long time series have gone UNDER in this building. Why? Cause the bookmaker jacks the total HIGH. And now it's been flexed into a Sunday night national TV game, last game of the regular season, and the NFC North title at stake?!? Let me have some of this UNDER. The total 49.5. MORE than 7 touchdowns? Really? UNDER in MOTOWN.
The happy "end of regular season neeeeeeeeeeed" recap? NY GIANTS+8.5 @ washington, CAROLINA+6 @ tampa bay, and UNDER 49.5 Green Bay/Detroit
Here's to another 3-0 week. Have a Happy, Healthy New Year, and take it easy on the champagne on New Year's Eve. We got a feeling you're gonna be samplin some more come Sunday. Due to winning. Again. Still. Good luck and god bless. And speaking of neeeeeeeed. And yes, Leo is wearing a Buffalo Sabre NHL Jersey. Maybe he's a fan? Sexy Rexy Ryan USED to be a fan of the Sabres. Not no more. Neeeeed Indeeeeed!
