Editor's Note--Well then. Did you wake up Sunday saying is this going to be another 3-3 weekend? Or worse? If you did, you were wrong! A 3-0 perfect Sunday brings the weekend record to 4-2!! But the way he won? Sheesh. GIANTS outright winners as a 6.5 point dog. COLTS with a cover, also getting 6.5, and almost winning outright. And then, one of the greatest sports wagering disparities in the history of SPORTS.....(no lie. check it out).....BUFFALO getting 16.5 as a fat dog and winning outright by TWENTY-ONE!! You think he's H-O-T? Yes that's why you have had this website up for days, hitting the refresh button every 2 minutes to see if this week's picks were up yet. Well, your dreams have come true, handsomes. Take er away El Bigo Dicko--R.B.
Thank you Richie, and yes that's a little more like it. Now let's see if we can put both Saturday and Sunday together.
The 'CUSE is 4-0 for only the 3rd time since 1960, and the upstate New York folk are fired up. Last year, Clemson came waltzing into SYRACUSE with their fancy record, and ranking, and promptly got BEAT as 25 point favorites! That ORANGEMEN squad was not as good as this ORANGEMEN team is. Guess what? This time the game is at Clemson. The #2 ranked Clemson. Guess what else? Clemson is a 25 point favorite....Really? Cause they seek revenge? Fiddlesticks. Poppycock. Oh and the Clemson coach decided to start the new QB this week, rather than the old QB who got them to the final 4 last year. That old QB? Promptly transferred schools on Monday. Can you say possible "dissension in the ranks at Clemson?" Sure you can. And we can say we are taking this live road dog +25.
Let's go back to the MAC. CENTRAL MICHIGAN aint winnin no beauty pageants. You know what? Neither is Michigan State. The CHIPPEWAS relish this matchup. Maybe they can win some in-state potential recruits if they can at least keep it close. For our troubles, we get 28.5 points. Take the CHIPS plus the points.
Nc State has put up a good record this year. But, VIRGINIA has put up the BEST record in the land. Well, versus the spread. 4-0 are the CAVS. They get the sneaky 6 at the rival wolfpack. Smells fishy. Takey take.
So to keep the hot streak rollin in the NFL let's stay where the bread is buttered with ANDREW LUCK and the INDY COLTS. They're basically 2 plays away from being 3-0, yet the oddsmaker makes them just a small 1.5 point home favorite to Houston. The texans, at 0-3, have some issues. Sure their losses have been close ones, but this line is too low friends. Look for LUCK to spread the luck for the happy home fan base. Houston has a bad recent history in this dome. Lay it pal.
Don't look now but the TENNESSEE TITANS are in 1st place in the AFC South! Manhandling Jacksonville all over the place last week. Sure Wentz had a thrilling last minute TD to comeback and beat the COLTS, but we don't think he's done being rusty just yet. And the MUSIC CITY doesn't look to be a place to be clearing off rust, with that defense. Oh the line? Why it's Philthydelphia -3.5. Yep in NASHVILLE. The music clubs will be hoppin Sunday night. Don't be surprised with a TITAN win, folks. We'll take the home doggie.
Finally, in the Sunday night matchup. The Stillers have given up 90 points and scored 88 in 3 games. The Ravens have scored 97 in 3 games. Mr. Bookmaker wants to put the Total at 51. Well, if you do some quick math? Doesn't it smell a lot like a 33-30 game or something? Plenty of chances to go OVER in this one, champs. OVER in Pittsburgh, baby.
So the "Strive for perfection" happy recap: Saturday: SYRACUSE+25 @ Clemson, CENTRAL MICHIGAN+28.5 @ Michigan State, VIRGINIA+6 @ Nc State. Sunday: INDIANAPOLIS-1.5 vs Houston, TENNESSEE+3.5 vs philly, and OVER 51 Pittsburgh/Baltimore.
Good luck and god bless. Now speaking of perfection and TENNESSEE and music.....This video is perfect. Look at both of their hair, outfits, jewelry, gorgeousness, and of course, singing chops. Is that the Grande Old Opry? Well it should be, cause the TITAN stadium is right down the block. Do the TITANS play this song at every timeout and at halftime in the stadium? They should. Richie, was that you in the front row, when they did this live? You should've been. Now we KNOW about private islands, but that's not what they're talking about here....Enjoy
