Week 17 Picks

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

We have to start today's entry by highlighting the fact that the Canadian Junior Hockey team now 3-0, after a 3-victory over Germany.

Week 17 of the NFL kicks off tonight, so its time to post the picks for the week (Ok, so I don't want to talk about the NHL last night). I'm out of the money in the Spreads Pool, so I'm going to take a few chances to win the week - I'm in the money in the Straight Up Pool, so I have to go by the book.


16) DALLAS over Detroit - Dallas puts the heat on the Eagles with a win over Detroit; they won't let up on Sunday.

15) NY JETS over Oakland - Oakland doesn't have an offence to speak of - Jets get it done at home.

14) INDIANAPOLIS over Miami - No way Manning loses this game - the Colts aren't as good as people once thought...but they aren't bad enough to lose to Saban's Sadsacks.

13) BALTIMORE over Buffalo - Losman and the Bills are in for a long day against the Ravens defence.

12) SAN DIEGO over Arizona - L.T. might run for a couple of TDs in the first half before taking a seat at halftime.

11) DENVER over San Francisco - Two teams who reversed the tide - Denver has gotten better under Cutler, the 49ers have reverted back into the bad team people thought they would be.

10) CINCINNATI over Pittsburgh - Revenge game for Palmer and the Bengals - the clock has struck 12 for the Steelers.

09) CHICAGO over Green Bay - Bears might be better under Griese if he gets in. Bears D uses this game as a tune up for the playoffs.

08) New England over TENNESSEE - I can't see Patriots rolling over in this one, they'll want to go into the playoffs on a winning note.

07) HOUSTON over Cleveland - Momentum from last week's win over the Colts carries over tomorrow against the Browns.

06) KANSAS CITY over Jacksonville - the Jags are road wimps, which doesn't bode well at Arrowhead.

05) Seattle over TAMPA BAY - the Seahawks need to pull it together, they can't afford to take this game off.

04) St. Louis over MINNESOTA - Rams have nothing to play for, which means Bulger should have a huge day in the Dome.

03) NY Giants over WASHINGTON - there is some pride left in New York...isn't there?

02) Carolina over NEW ORLEANS - Saints have nothing to play for, so they won't want to risk injury to anyone.

01) Atlanta over PHILADELPHIA - have I told you how much I hate the Eagles? This will be the kind of game that Ron Mexico surprises everyone...too little, too late for the Falcons though.


16) KANSAS CITY -2.5 over Jacksonville - for our girl Hazel.

15) INDIANAPOLIS -8.5 over Miami - Colts will make Miami pay for their brain cramp in Houston last week.

14) CHICAGO -2.5 over GREEN BAY - the Bears will want to send Favre off with a good ol' fashioned wuppin'.

13) New England +2.5 over TENNESSEE - are the odds makers crazy? The Patriots still have something to play for.

12) Seattle +3.5 over TAMPA BAY - the Seahawks need a win going into the playoffs.

11) St. Louis -2.5 over MINNESOTA - this will feel like a home game to the Rams, Bulger likes it in the dome.

10) HOUSTON -3.5 over Cleveland - the beat the Colts last week, and last time I checked the Browns were nowhere near as good as the Colts.

09) NY Giants -2.5 over WASHINGTON - you have to think the Giants will get up for this one, against a one-time division'd think huh?

08) Carolina +2.5 over NEW ORLEANS - this will be the kind of game Delhomme steps up and looks like a decent QB - we hope.

07) DALLAS -12.5 over Detroit - we're hoping T.O doesn't drop four or five passes tomorrow.

06) Buffalo +9.5 over BALTIMORE - we like Bills D to keep this one close enough for a backdoor cover.

05) DENVER -10.5 over San Francisco - this could get ugly..."could" being the operative word.

04) CINCINNATI -6.5 over Pittsburgh - no Bengals player has been arrested this week; is that a good or bad thing for the team?

03) Arizona +13.5 over SAN DIEGO - I'm hoping for a backdoor cover.

02) Oakland +12.5 over NY JETS - the Jets don't blow anyone out...

01) Atlanta +7.5 over PHILADELPHIA - Ron Mexico is NOT a coach killer according to Jim Mora; we'll revisit this statement early in 2007. Jeezus Chryss Mexico...DO SOMETHING.

There you have it gang...wish me luck.


Florida Panthers G Ed Belfour made 31 saves to lead the Panthers to a 3-1 victory over the Canadiens - we like it when Montreal loses.

Calgary Flames RW Jarome Iginla had a goal and three assists in a 6-4 victory over the Kings - when this sniper gets three assists in a game, it is big news and deserving of one of Hazel's Stars.

New Jersey Devils C Scott Gomez had 2 goals and an assist to lead the Devils to a 4-3 win over Ovechkin and the Caps - oh yeah, it was good for the Three Play yesterday.

I should have kept my mouth shut with the NCAA game - we only play NHL, NFL and MLB here...but, I posted it, so I'll live with it. We were 2-2 yesterday, finishing the day $5 in the red - so our total for the week is - $13. We'll make it up today.

Toronto over Ottawa - this is a statement game for the Leafs, they have to win this one. Plus, we'd like to think that Hazel will be watching this game - Hazel Karma at the ACC! Lay $50 on the Maple Leafs in Hazel boys and girls.

Nashville over Boston - Hazel won't like this one, but remember, the Predators are lights out at home and I don't think the Bruins can keep up with the Preds. Lay $75 on Nashville - $200.

San Jose over Phoenix - the Sharks cost us big earlier this week, time for them to put us in the black by winning the rubber match of this home and home series. Lay $75 on San Jose - $200.

NY Giants -2 over Washington. Call it a hunch. Lay $50 on the Giants.

That's about it for this morning - check back often gang, my pal Renee will be checking in soon with her predictions for know that is going to be well worth the read.


Travel plans or getting together with friends will help you make a decision that you will have to deal with in the new year. Don't let someone you don't see eye-to-eye with push you in a direction you really don't want to go. Fight for your rights. 3 stars

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world - have a safe and happy New Years Weekend. Remember, we need that good karma at the ACC tonight.

Song of the Day on Hazelspeeps - because we are all about showing the love to our fellow may not know this, but our girl is half Portuguese (her mom is from the Islands).

Peesth Out...Buh Bye!
