There was no tryptophan hangover for Torrey the Prediction Cat as he won both game son Thanksgiving Day, then three more en route to another 5-1 week, 2-1 in teasers. That swells the season overall record to a rousing 41-13, 16-11 in teasers.
Remember that aawful start? Well that’s a distant memory. Since the threatened benching in October, Torrey has gone 25-5, 10-5 in teasers.
Here’s this week’s picks. As always we use the lines from www.vegasinsider.com and move the line six points in our favor since we do 2-team teasers. HOME TEAM IN CAPS.
BILLS-ravens OVER 37.5
SAINTS-niners OVER 39
Don’t look now, but could these be conference championship previews? Maybe that’s a reach, but Buffalo wins this year’s most improved award, with San Fran right behind. Sure it might snow in Buffalo, but with two resurgent offenses, 37.5 is too low. The Saints play indoors, and although the Niners D is stingy, Jimmy G and Brees should put up at plenty of TDs.
BEARS-cowboys UNDER 51
niners +9 at SAINTS
Nine is too generous for a solid Niner offense and ferocious Niner D. The Bills finally beat the Cowboys in a big game. (People along I-90 in upstate NY have been waiting close to 30 years to say that.) The Pokes are searching for answers. I thought Dak and Zeke were unstoppable?
dolphins +12 at JETS
ravens +1/2 at BILLS
The Fins may have a crappy record, but they’ve been great this season against the spread in teasers. Last week marks the third time we cashed then in. Some people want to hand the Ravens the Lombardi trophy right now…
