NFL Picks

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

Well, week 17 of the NFL and still without a victory in the weekly pool - paying the entry fee for next year's pool isn't exactly appealing, so we're going to shoot the moon and look for a win to salvage a decent but disappointing season. Spreads were locked on Wednesday, so they may be a bit different that current spreads.

16) San Diego -6.5 over OAKLAND - Chargers should roll in this one, even if Tomlinson sits, they have options at RB. This could be scary if Pittsburgh loses against Baltimore.

15) PHILADELPHIA -7.5 over Buffalo - the game means nothing so you know McNabb will play like a champ in what should (is likely???) to be his last game in an Eagles uniform.

14) ARIZONA -5.5 St. Louis - we're banking on Warner getting up to play his old team. Arizona should finish strong at home.

13) CLEVELAND -9.5 over San Francisco - Chris Weinke is starting for the 49ers - enough said.

12) Seattle +2.5 over ATLANTA - Holmgren says he is going with his starters - for who long, who knows; but we think long enough to get a lead on the Falcons.

11) INDIANAPOLIS +6.5 over Tennessee - Marvin Harrison is going to play which means Manning should play at least a half - long enough to build up a lead to cover this one. Tennessee usually plays close games and tomorrow should be no different.

10) TAMPA BAY +2.5 over Carolina - the Panthers played their Super Bowl last week and lost; the Bucs will show up in front of a home crowd.

09) Cincinnati -2.5 over MIAMI - we're not buying this garbage that "players will be looking to show Parcells they belong", Parcells has two years of videotape to know that most don't. Carson Palmer ends the season with a big game against the awful Dolphins.

08) GREEN BAY -3.5 over Detroit - Favre should get some snaps, especially after last week's awful performance against the Bears. Does anyone trust the Lions on the road, on grass, and in the cold? We don't either.

07) New England -14.5 over NY Giants - Brady has a record to set and the Giants have "injury" issues.

06) Dallas +7.5 over WASHINGTON - since when is Todd Collins the type of QB that can spot 7 points? He isn't even Kerry Collins for chryss sakes. Dallas covers tomorrow - expect an outright win.

05) BALTIMORE +5.5 over Pittsburgh - no Parker, no Roethlisberger, means a close game. Steelers will probably a field goal, tops - they had better, we've got 16 riding on the Chargers.

04) CHICAGO +2.5 over New Orleans
- the Saints have to think they are done (we don't think they are though), they'll show up, but their hearts won't be in it. Chicago salvages some pride this weekend - "some" pride.

03) HOUSTON -6.5 over Jacksonville - Texans end their season with a home win against a Jacksonville team that is thinking about the Steelers.

02) DENVER +1.5 over Minnesota - call it a hunch, Broncos will be up to play spoilers at home.

01) Kansas City +5.5 over NY JETS - yuck.

Carolina Hurricanes C Eric Staal had a goal and an assist in a 4-3 win over the Bruins...sorry gang.

San Jose Sharks G Evgeni Nabokov stopped 26 shots in a 1-0 win over the St. Louis Blues.

Carolina Hurricanes D Mike Commodore had a goal and completely annihilated P.J Axelsson in the Canes win.

We were 2-1 last night - hard luck losers with Buffalo losing in a shootout. The total for the week is a very respectable + $300. Tonight's suggestions:

New England -13.5 over NY Giants - Patriots complete the perfect regular season by pounding on the Giants. Brady will get them up 28-0 by the end of the 1st half and Pats coast to 16-0 season. Lay $100 on the Patriots.

Minnesota over Edmonton - the Wild are tough to beat at home, the Oilers will find that out first hand tonight. Niklas Backstrom is coming off a great performance against Phoenix - expect him to carry that over tonight. Lay $100 on the Wild - $210.

Dallas over St. Louis - Dallas has been playing well lately, especially at home; they should get it done against the Blues tonight. Lay $100 on the Stars - $175.

We've got a feeling about Washington beating the Tards tonight...but we'll leave that one.

That's it for today gang - thanks for taking the time to check in. Have a great one peeps.

Hazel, we hope things are groovy in your world.

We're Out!
