Some quick picks for week 15 as my eyes try to recover from the Ketchup vs Mustard matchup between the Buccaneers and Rams on Thursday Night Football:
Jacksonville (-3) vs Atlanta: Around week 8, I thought I was such a smart guy having Atlanta in a NFL wins pool. At 6-1, they looked like a challenger to the Panthers but since have been one of the three worst teams in the league. Lotta pissed off people down in the Peach State and I can’t say I blame them. Matt Ryan is what he is now. But Blake Bortles? He’s actually good!
NY Giants (+5) vs Carolina: If I’ve learned one painful thing in life, it is to pick Eli and the Giants when they go up against an undefeated team.
Washington (-1) vs Buffalo: What am I missing here? Washington has been a pretty good home team despite having to play at Fedex Field and Buffalo seems way overrated, finding ways to lose games they should be winning if they want to be a serious playoff contender.
Seattle (-15) vs Cleveland: The Brownies got their win last week so they can check out now. What’s with Mike Pettine baiting Seattle by talking trash? This has the makings of a 52-0 game. Plus I learned my lesson from the lunacy of picking Baltimore against the Seahawks last week.
New Orleans (-3) vs Detroit (Monday): The Lions don’t seem to have a lot going on and I think New Orleans is bound to score a ton of points here. The safer play in this is probably to bet over 51 points in a game between the 28th and 32nd scoring defenses.
Last Week: 2-3
