NFL Picks Week 14, 1:00 o’clock games

 

Miami Dolphins at Pittsburgh Steelers (-3.5), O/U (41.5)

Miami is 0 and 2 since 1995 when they play the Steelers in Pittsburgh. The Dolphins have a 2-6 record in their last 8 games against Pittsburgh and are on a 5 game losing streak against the Steelers overall. Ben Roethlisberger seems to have a knack for winning games late in the season at home when they mean something and the Steelers are 18-6 ATS at home over the past 24 games.

Gonna go with Pittsburgh here to cover the spread.
Take the under 41.5.

Cleveland Browns at New England Patriots (-10), O/U (45)

New England plays every team tough at home and are coming in on a 5 game winning streak at home. The Browns are 1-4 against the Patriots in their last 5 meetings and are 1-4 against the spread versus the Patriots in their last 5 matchups. Cleveland is going off a tough loss to the Jaguars at home and now have to go on the road against a tough opponent in the Patriots.

Gonna take New England to cover the 10 point spread.
4 out of the past 5 games between Cleveland and New England have gone over the line. Gotta go with the OVER here.

Kansas City Chiefs at Washington Redskins (+2.5), O/U (44)

Kansas City and Washington have both not fared well against the spread in their last 6 games going just 1 and 5 ATS. Washington is on a 5 game losing streak against the Chiefs and haven’t covered the spread in those games either. With the Redskins struggling not looking to make the playoffs and Kansas City looking to get back on track against at team that head coach Andy Reid knows well, I expect this game to get oit of hand rather quickly.

Got to take the Chiefs to cover the 2 points.
Chiefs have gone UNDER the line in 14 of their past 20 games and Washington has gone UNDER the line in 8 of its past 12 at home. All signs pointing to the UNDER here.

Detroit Lions at Philadelphia Eagles (-2.5), O/U (53)

Detroit has gone under the line in 4 of their last six road games and the Eagles have also gone under the line in 5 of their past 6 homes games. Philadelphia is coming in hot and are 6 and 1 against the Lions at home in their past seven meetings. Detroit has covered the spread in the past two games against Philadelphia and with both teams looking to make a run at the playoffs its going to be a tight game. This game is going to come down to a field goal.

With that I’m going with the Eagles to win this one at home but the Lions WILL COVER the 2.5 point spread.
both defenses have been playing well of late which leads me to believe this is going UNDER the 53 point line.

Indianapolis Colts at Cincinnati Bengals (-5.5), O/U (44.5)

The Colts have beaten the Bengals 7 times in the last 8 meeting between the two and the Colts have covered the spread in those games 5 times. Cincinnati is just 2 and 6 against the spread when playing Indy at home in their last 8 meetings. The Bengals are coming off a 17 to 10 win over the Chargers in week 13 and they had their bye week during week 12. I think the Bengals are going to hit their stride this week and put up a bunch of points against the Colts defense through the air.

Take the Colts to cover the 5.5 in a low scoring game that will go UNDER the 44.5 point line.

Buffalo Bills at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-2.5), O/U (41.5)

Truly a toss up here with two rookie quarterbacks going head to head and two pretty good defenses both against the run and pass. EJ Manuel is heading back to the state where he spent his college career and will have a bunch of fans there pulling for him and that will play a factor in this game. Tampa Bay is 5 and 1 in their last six home games against the Bills and the Bills haven’t cover the spread in their past 5 games in Tampa Bay.

Gonna go with the Bills to win this game covering that 2.5 point spread.
The Bucs and the Bills have both gone OVER the line in 6 out of the last 8 games. Take the OVER again here.

Oakland Raiders at New York Jets (-3), O/U (41.5)

The Jets have played better of late at home this season going 4 and 2 in their past 6 home games. and are also 4 and 2 in their past 6 games against the Raiders. The Raiders will be relying on Rashad Jennings with Run DMC out with an ankle injury against the leagues best run defense so expect Matt McGloin to be throwing the ball a lot against a Jets secondary that has been struggling.

Gonna take the Raiders to COVER the spread in a nail biter with the Jets sneaking out the win but by less than 3 points.
It’s going to be a fast paced game with a lot of drives that end with long touchdowns so I’ve gotta go with the OVER 41.5 point line.

Atlanta Falcons at Green Bay Packers (-3), O/U (46.5)

Atlanta has really struggled this year but they have picked it up of late and I believe that Mike smith’s team will finish the season strong. Green Bay is good at home but they are still without Aaron Rodgers and have been struggling to find the endzone on offense. I think that will continue this week for Green Bay’s offense and the Packers defense will have to try to find pay dirt somehow and keep Matt Ryan at bay. I like the Falcons to upset the Packers here and get a much needed win in regulation by a touchdown.

Take the Falcons against the spread.
Gonna have to go with the UNDER, as I don’t expect much scoring from the Packers offense but their defense will keep the Falcons offense under 30 points.

Minnesota Vikings at Baltimore Ravens (-6), O/U (42.5)

The Vikings have been playing surprisingly well in the past two weeks getting a win versus Chicago and tying with the Packers the week before that. Both of those games went into overtime. We could attest that to Minnesota’s defense and Adrian Peterson. The Ravens know that the Vikings are going to give AP a lot of touches and will probably challenge the Vikings wide receivers to beat them on the outside. Matt Cassel should be able to take advantage of the play action and hit his receivers and tight ends down the field. Baltimore has played really well at home all season but they haven’t scored that many points at home.

Gonna take the Ravens here to COVER the 6 point spread getting the win by a touchdown over Minnesota.
But I’m going to take the OVER on this 42.5 point line with both teams scoring into the twenties.

Jacoby Ellsbury may have gotten overpaid but…

It does not matter how much money the Yankees paid Ellsbury, he’s in pinstripes and that is all that matters. The Yankees will pay any amount to put the best product in the Bronx. As a Mets fan I envy the Yankees spending habits. News is the Mets signed Curtis Granderson which is a step in the right direction but if the Mets would have signed Ellsbury to the deal he just got with the Yankees I would have been furious. Now it’s time to wait 5 months to see Ellsbury on the field, healthy. That’s all Yankees fans want to see. I’ll make a prediction right now that Ellsbury, just like former Yank and Red Sox Johnny Damon, will be a hit in the Bronx and love the short porch/second deck of Yankee Stadium.

Also gonna make the prediction that Ellsbury will wear #22.

Jacoby Ellsbury

The very short story of ‘The Woody Johnson Circus’!!!

When you walk through the ticket booth at the Woody Johnson Circus and look towards the attractions in front of you, there is a carousel.  On that carousel are around 50 New York Jets football players riding, Rex Ryan’s coaching staff stand by their sides, John Idzik and Ryan sit on the largest stallions on the carousel, and Mister Johnson is atop the dragon that dwarfs all the other carousel animals.  Woody Johnson hops down from the dragon and yells “Lets go to the spinning TEA CUPS!!!” to coach Rex Ryan as he exits the saddle of his stallion.  Spinning in those tea cups sit Al Groh, Herman Edwards and Eric Mangini waiting for the operator to start the ride.  Woody tells Rex that he can go sit in the lone tea cup that remains and steps away to watch them spin.  Johnson twiddles his thumbs and says to himself “Soon Rex will be just like the others. Crushed by the power of the woody johnson. Unable to succeed and stuck without a quarterback!!! HAHAHAHA!!!”  Woody walks back to the carousel to find Geno Smith, Matt Simms, Mark Sanchez and David Garrard where the lone players left on the ride.”  As the carousel turns Woody notices that Brett Favre has gotten on the carousel accompanied by Tim Tebow on a Gator and Jenn Sterger riding Rex Ryan’s stallion dressed in a deer hide.  The carousel continues to rotate and there sits none other than Kellen Clemens holding onto a rams horns being chased by Greg McElroy on an elephant.  Woody Johnson runs back to see if Rex was finished spinning on the tea cups.  But he wasn’t surprised when he go back  as somehow Rex and Mangini found the only hot dog stand at the circus and were woofing down dogs in handfuls.  The point here is that Rex Ryan, Eric Mangini, Herm Edwards, and Al Groh are all one dimensional coaches.  Rex and Mangini had a longer leash than Herm and Al which means that if Woody parts with Rex, John Idzik will have the  task of finding a coach that himself and Johnson agree on in turn causing a power struggle that will not allow the coach to reach his potential. In the 13 years Johnson has been at the helm, the Jets offense has been in the top 15 of the NFL just three times with the highest being ranked 13th in 2011.  What Woody Johnson refuses to acknowledge is that nobody likes a ‘know-it-all’ and that is how he is viewed.  It’s time for Woody to step back and hand the reigns of the circus over to the ones who know how build a football team.  It’s too bad that when I refer to “the ones who know how to run a football team” John Idzik is not one of them.  It’s going to be a long five years of ‘rebuilding’ again with Rex Ryan or whoever else decides to join the circus along with [Insert Quarterback Name Here].

The Falcons are bad and their offensive line woes only make things even worse. The Saints got pretty lucky when Ahmad Brooks truck-sticked Drew Brees and was promptly flagged. The Saints are a top team in the NFC and are doing well on both both sides of the ball.
