Torrey the Prediction Cat went a solid 4-2 last week overall, 2-1 in teasers. Swelling his lifetime percentage in this column to just shy of 60%, Torrey continued his winning ways playing the Chiefs and Bucs. Sadly the third parlay of road dogs spit the bit, but in sports prognostication, 59% is Gold Standard, and Torrey has not only carried on the torch passed to him by the great and now retired Ernesto the Prediction Iguana, he is surpassing it.
“All records are made to be broken. It was the great Terry Bradshaw who said that,” stated Ernesto. “I’m delighted for Torrey. I like the cut of his jib too; those tuxedo cats have style and smarts.”
Here are this weekend’s picks before they happen. Now go crush your man!
TITANS-bengals OVER 40
PACKERS-niners OVER 41
Potent offenses and spotty defenses will offset any weather issues barring another Winter Storm With a Name blazing on through. The Bengals may win outright as the Titans are especially worrisome on run defense. Aaron Rodgers and co. had a week off, more than enough to overwhelm the Niners.
BRADY LOOKS RIDICULOUS IN A YUCKANEERS UNI
BUCCANEERS +3.5 vs. rams
BUCCANEERS-rams UNDER 55.5
This game could get ugly early. The mismatches the Bucs receiving corps presents are alarming. Brady looks like a video game in that Bucs uni. So do the numbers he puts up. Is life imitating art?
