Another clean sweep this past week moving me to 13-4 and i will say my colleague finally found the win column breaking his 0-9 record and making it 2-9, which is still more hilarious than watching charles barkley play golf. Its sad when you go 2-0 for a week and finally get a win just to watch as I still out perform you and go 3-0. It has been pure domination all year and well i expect nothing less since Snow is just a pawn in my chess game of sports betting. Glad you could finally get your first couple wins in though Snow because for a while you looked more lost than a replacement ref trying to make a touchdown/touchback/oh hell just give them a field goal Call. With that being said its time for week 5 picks.
Pick- Cincinatti -3
Andy Dalton has looked sharp this year and has this Bengals offense rolling right now. Averaging 33 points per game during the winning streak while their defense has stepped up over the past couple weeks. The Bengals defense leads the NFL in sacks and expect a lot of pressure on Tannehill. The Dolphins are not as bad as they have been in recent years, but looks like they have just had some bad luck...we will call that the curse of Dan Marino. After losing a heartbreaking loss against Arizona last week i expect this squad to come out and just get blasted by Dalton and that explosive offense. Over 45 may also want to be considered, but ill stick with the spread this time. Bengals-31 Dolphins-21
Pick- Saints -3.5
Yes this is a fishy fishy fishy line. Did i mention it was fishy? Yes i know SD is 3-1 and NO is 0-4 (stop and just let that settle in). Well Drew Brees is looking to pass Unitas for consecutive games with a TD pass and i think that shouldnt be a problem. Drew Brees is one of the best QB's in the league and i expect him to show it, especialy against the team who decided to let him go for Phillip Rivers. Not hating on Rivers, but that was a terrible move by the Chargers because Brees is in a whole different league than him. The Chargers have only played one game this year against a decent team and they were slaughtered by the Falcons 27-3. Now i know that the Saints defense is more of a joke than Miley Cyrus's haircut, but all they have to do is make a couple stops this game and Drew Brees will lead them to the promise land. I just refuse to think that the Saints could move to 0-5 and for that ill be betting Brees and company. Saints-31 Chargers-20
Big Bucks No Whammies Pick of the week (ytd 2-1): Panthers -3
I mean who gives up a 59 yd play with less than 1 minute left in the game just to allow a field goal and heartbreaking loss? Yea the panthers, but i dont care. They played a great Falcons team and just shot themselves in the foot. Maybe the Panthers shouldve picked up Plaxico Burress in the offseason because i heard hes good at that too ( yes i know it was his thigh not his foot). Well i expect these boys to get back on the right foot. The offense has been looking better, but the defense is still shaky. Luckily this week theyll be up against a rookie in Russell Wilson, who has exceeded expectations this year, but hes still only a rookie. Rookies will make rookie mistakes and well John Beason is a shark who will sense blood this week and hes going to eat Wilson alive. After being dominated by the Rams last week expect to see a younger Seattle team struggle to find themselves again this week after a loss and for us all to continue laughing at Golden Tate for his no pass interference/i caught the defender that makes it a td/ "simultaneous possession" catch. People say that moments like that usually defy a teams season..and well thats right ..just not in the way you would expect it..that scam moment will be the downfall of the Seattle Seahawks this year..mark my words. Panthers 27 Seahawks 20
As always Big Bucks No Whammies!
