Editor's Note--Well first there's this.....
Sure, it's always our favorite post. The Christmas season and all. Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters do it sooooo good. But it's also a time where NFL teams NEEEEEEEEED games to make the playoffs. Ok, there's also college bowl games. Good lord. Are you excited yet? How about Big D workin a 5-1 week? That's what he did. When you read these picks? How fast will you run to the windows? Lightspeed. A Wonderful Christmas to all of you from all of us. Excellent times. Here is the Big Man. Goooooo-R.B.
First of all, Merry Christmas to All. A wonderful time of the year.
For the third time in the history of the NFL? EVERY favorite in the NFL WON their games outright last week. Now, of course, they didn't cover the spread in ALL of those games. Otherwise, Vegas would be closed down. Oh? Us? We went 3-0 in the NFL. We went 2-1 in the college too. Now it's time for new selections. College first.
Mele Kalikimaka Indeed! Christmas Eve in the Hawai'i Bowl? Early Christmas Present?! Yep. FRESNO STATE is a sneaky good team. Houston started out great. Then kinda lost gas. Not FRESNO baby. 2.5 is the line. We take.
Next, we move to the mainland. San Diego State also started on fire. Yep. The bowl game is in San Diego.The BLACK KNIGHTS of the HUDSON? ARMY? Absolutely on fire. Not since our old friend Nate Sassaman, (google that fella if you'd like), led ARMY, have they been this good. The funny 6.5 is the line. We take.
Finally, in the YANKEE STADIUM on Dec 27? The New Era Pinstripe Bowl? The best team in the land plays. Oh no. Not Clemson. BOSTON COLLEGE friends. Covering MACHINES! 9-1 vs the spread. No one is better versus the spread. We'll take em getting 2.5 from iowa.
Now the NFL.
Do the bookmakers do this every year as a gift? We think so.
The Deeee-troit Lions neeeeeeed to win the game versus the BENGALS to hope to make the playoffs. CINCY has given up right? Their coach is leaving. They are in disarray. Hey Champ? How's the weather in the Deeee-troit home dome? Perfect. How's the weather in CINCINNATI? Not so good. Deeeee-troit is favored by 4.5? Ok. We'll take. The BENGALS may win this game outright. Deeeee-troit neeeeeds.
ALERT! ALERT! The Big D AFC LOCK of the YEAR is here! The chargers MUST win the next two games and hope for help. They neeeeeeeeeeeeed the game. GANG GREEN hasnt given up. And they are incredible at home. Is the weather the same in Southern California as it is in the swamps of Jersey in December? How about if you get 6.5 points with the home team? BIG D's AFC LOCK OF THE YEAR. J-E-T-S +6.5.
Finally, did you realize the Miami Dolphins are alive for the playoffs? They are. KC lays 10.5 to them. That's a very unorthodox BIG D play, but this game may end up 50-0 KC. Lay it, pal.
So the christmas holiday happy recap? FRESNO STATE+2.5 vs houston, ARMY+6.5 vs san diego state, BC+2.5 vs iowa, CINCY+4.5 vs detroit, NYJ+6.5 vs san diego, KC-10.5 vs mia.
God bless. Good luck. Merry Merry Christmas. This should work....
