One Step Closer To Boston

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

Get ready Red Sox Nation - you'll be seeing this scene in a couple of weeks if all goes to form. Dodgers sweep the Cubs! No time to gloat now - maybe a little later this afternoon.

Time for NFL Picks - Week 5. If you have read the page, you know the drill - confidence pool, spreads locked on Wednesday, so they may not reflect most current spreads.

16) DALLAS -10.5 over Cincinnati - that was the line on Wednesday. Cowboys rebound from loss to Skins (ugh) with a beatdown of Ocho Cinco and the Bengals.

15) New England -3.5 over SAN FRAN - Patriots rebound from embarrassing loss to Dolphins, though I'm still hating them for blowing up my suicide pool.

14) CAROLINA -9.5 over Kansas City - back to reality for the Chiefs.

13) Indianapolis -3.5 over HOUSTON - Manning's career numbers against Houston are great.

12) JACKSONVILLE -3.5 over Pittsburgh - injuries to Jags secondary aside, that front seven will get after Roethlisberger.

11) Tennessee -2.5 over BALTIMORE - not trusting Ravens offense to score much against Titans.

10) NEW ORLEANS -3.5 over Minnesota - Brees has a big day against Vikes's secondary.

09) Buffalo +1.5 over ARIZONA - no Boldin? long day for Warner

08) San Diego -6.5 over MIAMI - Chargers have issues when they travel to east, but they have too much O for Dolphins to keep up with.

07) Washington +5.5 over PHILADELPHIA - YUCK

06) Atlanta +6.5 over GREEN BAY - With Rodgers doubtful, I'll take the points.

05) Seattle +6.5 over NY GIANTS - no Burress? who is going to make a play for Giants? Seahawks, like Chargers, suck when they travel east, but they'll keep it close.

04) Tampa Bay +3.5 over DENVER - taking Tampa's D to keep it close, and Chuckie to keep Griese on a short leash.

03) DETROIT +3.5 over Chicago - little known fact, Kitna plays like a champ against the Bears. They still suck though.

There you have it - this week's pool picks.

Last week was a 3-0 week, meaning the total is up to about + $450 - stay with picks while they're HOT.

Tennessee -2.5 over BALTIMORE - going with Titans D to dominate and offense to create enough first downs to make it a field possession game. Lay $100 on the Titans.

CAROLINA -9.5 over Kansas City - going with Panthers to build up big lead early in this one. Lay $100 on the Panthers.

Indianapolis - 3 over HOUSTON - remember, Manning's numbers against Texans are very good. Lay $100 on the Colts.

Back before 4 pm for late games - thanks for taking the time to check in.

Hazel, here's hoping things are groovy in your world.

I'm OUT!
