NFL Picks - Spreads Pool

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae.

Time to post the NFL Picks against the spread.

16) CINCINNATI -10.5 over Oakland - Another Bengals player was arrested, and these guys seem to be at their best when one of them is in trouble. Oh yeah, Palmer is playing pretty good too.

15) Philadelphia +0.5 over WASHINGTON - Andy Reid and the Eagles think they have a shot at the playoffs, while the Redskins are wondering if Joe Gibbs even thinks. I don't like either of them, but the Eagles have something to play for - the Skins don't.

14) Seattle -3.5 over ARIZONA - The Seahawks will put the game in the hands of Shaun Alexander; not a bad idea against a soft Arizona run defence. Seattle will grind Arizona down and punish them in the second half.

13) SAN FRANCISCO -5.5 over Green Bay - The 49ers are playing a lot better these days, and Green Bay is just getting worse. Frank Gore should have a big day running the ball against the Pack. Brett Favre needs ankle surgery - the over/under on him leaving the game is halftime.

12) Chicago -6.5 over ST. LOUIS - Marc Bulger says the Rams season is over; how much protection do you think he is going to get from his offensive line? Bulger hasn't gotten it done against some of the weaker defences in the NFL...what do you think is going to happen when he faces the Bears?

11) SAN DIEGO -7.5 over Denver - The Chargers are surging towards home field advantage in the AFC, the Broncos are already thinking about next season. Its going to be a long day for Cutler on Sunday. L.T. should have another great day against a Denver defence that is showing some weaknesses.

10) New England -3.5 over MIAMI - I can't see the Patriots dropping this one. I know people are questioning the Pats...but they have been great on the road this year. Miami's defence might keep it close in the first half, but their offence won't be able to do enough to keep them in this one. Take Brady over "Happy Feet" Harrington.

09) DALLAS -6.5 over New Orleans - Dallas is playing well on both sides of the ball, while the Saints defence is banged up. Cowboys are gearing up for a bye in the opening round of the playoffs. Dallas' defence contains Brees and the Saints, while Romo does enough to cover this one.

08) NY Giants +2.5 over Carolina - The Giants have to win one sooner or later - even with the turmoil in the locker room. Talk out of Carolina is that Delhomme might not play on Sunday - which isn't necessarily a bad thing these days. Take the Giants to win outright.

07) Atlanta -3.5 over TAMPA BAY - I know, I know - this pick is based on the fact I think the Falcons are going to run the ball all day. Note to Mora Jr: limit Ron Mexico's pass attempts...please.

06) DETROIT -2.5 over Minnesota - QB controversy in Minnesota (if you can call it that) - while the Lions are playing "ok". Call it a hunch pick.

05) Cleveland +9.5 over PITTSBURGH - I'm counting on the backdoor cover.

04) KANSAS CITY -1.5 over Baltimore - This pick isn't just about Hazel. Chiefs are tough at home and I think Green musters enough offence to get it done.

03) Tennessee -1.5 over HOUSTON - Vince Young is on a roll, plus they have a kicker who is lights out these days.

02) JACKSONVILLE +2.5 over Indianapolis - Because I hate the Colts.

01) Buffalo +4.5 over NY JETS - I know everything points to the Jets, and I think they'll win; I just don't think that they'll cover. I remember what the damn Jets did against Miami when they were up 20-3 in the 4th quarter and almost blew it.

I like this week's picks - but then again, I like my picks every week...until Monday morning.

That's about it for tonight gang - have a great one peeps!

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world - Leafs lost again...ugh.

Song of the Night on Hazelspeeps - cuz I'm in one of those moods

Moondance - Van Morrison

Peesth Out...Buh Bye!
