The fat lady is warming up in the green room, and there’s an iguana warming in the bullpen. Torrey the Prediction Cat went 4-2 lasy week to move to 11-7 on the season. But his third straight 1-2 record in all-important teasers has this column off to its worst start in 12 years of predictions, a dismal 3-6 record.
So much for changing starting quarterbacks.
Torrey has this Sunday to get his act together or he goes back to his research duties, Ernesto the Prediction Iguana comes back into the starting line-up, and we look for more animal kingdom support in the ethosphere.
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.
STEELERS-dolphins UNDER 49.5
VIKINGS-redskins UNDER 49
If the Steelers, Dolphins, and Redskins all joined forces, together they might make one real offense, surely…no? Meanwhile. Kirk Cousins – MVP? MOst improved player of the year?
MORE UNDER ARMOR!
PATRIOTS-browns UNDER 52.5
JAGUARS-jets UNDER 47.5
SUPER BOWL CONTENDERS?
PATRIOTS -4 vs. browns
49ERS +2 vs. panthers
Cam Newton is out. All the Niners have to do is win at home. Can anyone beat the Cheatriots? Please??!!
