Torrey the Prediction Cat went 4-2 last week, 2-1 in teasers. His only loss of the day came when the Packers O-line forgot to get off the bus in an embarrassing loss. They made the Chargers look like the old Steelers, and poor Rodgers was running for his life the whole day in a flabbergasting 26-11 loss. Not only did the Chargers win, their kicker blew the OVER call by hooking a shorty late in the game. The season totals stand at 21-9, 8-7 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 +9 at BROWNS
BROWNS-bills OVER 33.5
This is a battle of the sexy pick vs. the sleeper lick. All you heard all year was BROWNS BROWNS BROWNS! Well they’re 2-6 people. Which yes, is an improvement in a pitiful sort of way, but still locked in a never-ending battle with the Bengals for cellar team status. Meanwhile, the Bills are riding high, just one game shy of the Pats (and one more against them) and no matter what, they are a full game up in the wild card race as we reach the halfway point. Two teams moving in two directions the mainstream media couldn’t see.
STEELERS +10 vs. rams
STEELERS-rams OVER 39
The Rams are coming into Pittsburgh: a tough to place to win for a visiting team and tougher still spotting them 10 points. Finally…after two or three years of blown coverages and sieve D-line, the Steeler defense is intensifying. The D is pointed in the right direction, and Mason Rudolph is fearless enough to bounce back after his mistakes…now he has to concentrate on minimize them.
JETS-giants OVER 36
dolphins +16.5 at COLTS
Has a JETS-giants game ever been more irrelevant? Long gone are the days when a Dolphins-Colts match-up would determine supremacy in football. Oh for the days of Johnny Unitas and Nick Buonaconte.
