Merry Christmas from Torrey the Prediction Cat! He’s the gift that keeps on giving this season, going 4-2 last week, 2-1 in teasers to raise the season totals to a blistering 49-17 overall, and 19-14 in the all-important teasers category. His lone loss was his Dolphins and the UNDER. (It’s about time the Giants played well this season…) He hit with the Cheatriots, Saints, and Eagles, along with the UNDER call in CHIEFS-vikings.
Here’s this week’s winners before they happen. 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.
***REMEMBER!*** There will be no picks for week 17! Too many teams rest critical players, so results tend to be screwy.
NINERS EVEN vs rams
CHEATRIOTS 1/2 vs bills
Sorry, Buffalo, the banged-up Steelers are not New England. Brady and company will have enough firepower to send the Bills on the road for the playoffs for a date with the Chiefs, or another match-up in Foxboro. The inconsistancy of the Rams is disappointing after last year’s fireworks, but the strong and balanced Niners have a real chance to win the whole NFC.
ravens -3 at BROWNS
chiefs +1/2 at BEARS
The Chiefs were partying on the field and off after last week’s win over Denver. They roll towards the playoffs with an enviable momentum. The Browns did improve this year, but still can’t find the magic to finish a season above .500. The Ravens hope to seal the top spot in the AFC North this week so they can rest QB Lamar Jackson in next week’s game against Pittsburgh.
JETS-steelers UNDER 44.5
COLTS-panthers OVER 40.5
Speaking of Pittsburgh, despite a putrid five turnover game against Buffalo, Pittsburgh can still make the playoffs by winning out. This week’s assinment looks more promising than next week in Balti, but one step at a time for Duck and his gang of quackers. Jets fans hate the Steelers as pittsburgh has handed them one bitter loss after another over the years. Doug Brian anyone?
