It's nice to learn from the make-picks menu at Covers that the Chargers are still in San Diego.  ;-)

congratchs to raider nation.  i heard the raider radio play by play as the game wound down....

the NFL is better, football is better, when "the Rrrraiduhz" (Chris Berman voice) are a legit contender.

Sacramento should benefit from their weird cancellation the other night -- a 3-day rest in medias road trip.  Hard to say much about this propsition until we know if Cousins is playing or not though.

If eye test means anything, Washington wouldn't even be atop the Pac 12. USC thumped them. You want a rational system? They should turn it over to Vegas.  I'm serious.  Alabama, Ohio State, USC, Clemson.

good thread.  i like this proposition -- Brady won't be around forever. Denver, tired coach, old lineup. Pittsburgh and Balty well-run, well-coached.  It's hard to picture del Rio going all the way, but who knows.  I miss Al Davis.... he had unfinished business. I always hoped he would become the first guy to fire a coach at halftime. Maybe Jerry Jones, or that global nincompoop in Jacksonville. - cheezehead

tend to agree with this (and put a small "bet" here at Covers when it got to -6.5.)

i like seattle's motivation...  this team may take a long time to get its beast-mojo back after last year's un-beast-mode finish, but it's not ready to mail it in either.

just watching Lynch go in now...

Can't help myself, lovin' Carolina in this one.  Digitalkarma is almost right but I would emend what he says to, Cards were a great bet most of the year.  Not any more.  Panthers have put it together, and are at home.

it's hard to love anyone in this bitter rivalry.  Bell smarting, Nada coming off suspension.  which is why I like, not love but like, Balty +3.  in a matchup that's usually this close, take the points -- and buy the hook.

A couple notables:

San Fran +700
Denver +1000
New England +1000
GB +1400
Carolina +2000
Indy +2000
New Orleans +2000



These are from bodog. Pinnacle and 5dimes haven't released theirs yet. Ill post those when it comes out including afc and NFC odds. 


Thoughts????


best bargains above:
Green Bay, New England

(Pats, always a good 50-50 bet to make the Superbowl in the weak AFC.  Packers, have fixed some needs, and will have Aroj and Clay most of the year.)

worst in terms of price value:
Seattle, Denver, Carolina, New Orleans

imho.

NFL Betting > Julius Peppers on the Green Bay edge > View Post
at 3.5 mil against the cap, Peppers is a bargain.  yah, he took plays off last year on a pitiful Bears that couldn't even win the division with no Aroj and no Clay for Green Bay.  Still had 7 1/2 sacks.  this year, he'll go 10-12, enjoying single blocking for the first time in his career.

NFL Betting > Would you pay Kaepernick $18m/year? > View Post
Nope.  Having a "top QB" is overrated, especially when their salary surges.  SF, the Ravens, Seattle were all blessed with competent but low-cap QBs when they won, and note that Brady won all his Superbowls before he became established in most people's minds as The Man.  Keep him under his current contract and let him show a little more consistency.

NFL Betting > Julius Peppers on the Green Bay edge > View Post
Mike North, who I love listening too even though he's a Flatlander, considers this a great move for the Bears --

but I'm optimistic about this rare free-agent move by Ted Thompson....

Yes, Peppers is getting old, but he also lacked motivation last year in Chicago...  he won't this year. 

I believe Reggie White had one of his best seasons at about that age in 1998.  Ditto Charles Haley.

The quarter-of-a-step Peppers has lost will be made up for by the fact that for the first time in his career, he won't be double-teamed much...  at least not if Clay Matthews can stay in the lineup.

Don't need 15 sacks from him.  Ten, with some forced fumbles, and other guys chipping in, would be a big help. 

Here's hoping too that the Packers give him a lot of rest and rotation.  Could be just what he needs to have a little spurt here, especially as the Packers seem to be of a mind to run some different looks with him, sew a little confusion again.

At only $3.5 mil on the cap, it's a worthwhile risk to take.  Go get 'em Julius -- I've got the link for the Mike North video if you need any extra bulletin board material for offseason conditioning.

nice call. in there with you.

Pacers are really struggling...  not just tonight.  When Larry Bird comes out like that, something is way amiss.  Kinda surprised they didn't rally after those comments.

Pro Basketball > Golden State at Oklahoma City (01/17/2014) > View Post
we kinda like Warriors plus a point.  1. yes, Thunder at home, but b-t-b from a remarkable win. 2. Warriors well-coached, really didn't focus vs. Denver.  watched that game.  Denver was great. But Mark Jackson gets 'em back on track, we think.

oh, well, a tie may be like kissing your sister, but  a push is like getting free drinks and going home break-even...

come to think of it, that's what it is exactly. 

sure wish that idiot had made the field goal, of course, but then again, the late Saints t.d. was pure garbage time.

That being said, it's going to be in the rain....I'd much rather have Wilson and Lynch and Seattle's defense in that then NO. Seahawks lead the NFL in + turnover's. Honestly New Orleans +8 isn't an awful play, but be careful. I'm saying Seahawks 23-14.



well said, but:

1. I like the Saints coaching here too.  Esp. w/ Ryan.

2. that extra point and a half (from 6 and 1/2 to 8) is huge statistically.  

3. we'll find out this weekend, but somehow, I like the Saints to profit from recent experience in QWest er Clink er whatever it is.

i'm sure it will, and always respect your posts, friend.

me love the over too. 

i have a little bit of a bee  in my bonnet about Seahawks fans --

they make noise and celebrate generating off-sides penalties, pretty poor sportsmanship, then whine about reffing.

(i lived there for some years.)

but, oh, well.  i'll get over it.

still like Seattle to win, Saints to cover. we'll see.

hear, hear. thanks for reminding people of this.
