After a week full of surprises (both good and bad), I’m back with another four pack of picks to help you bring in some extra income.
1. Detroit Even. With an even line, a deciding factor to this game will be who has more pressure on them. No question that in this case it’s the bears. Coming back from injury, Jay Cutler’s job is still on the hot seat. Back up QB Josh Mccown did a fantastic job filling in, throwing 476 YDs 3 TD and no picks in two games. This could lead Cutler to over think himself, which could lead to that one costly mistake. In contrast, the Lions are coming off a bye with Matthew Stafford on pace for a record-breaking year. This game may be somewhat close, but expect Detroit to take this one.
2. Philadelphia -1. Coming off the high of throwing 7 TDS, Nick Foles is at the top of the world. He has solidified his spot as starting QB and he has gotten the Eagles into playoff contention. Combine this with the fact that Seneca Wallace is starting at QB for GB and this one could get ugly. This one will be a shoot out, but expect the Eagles to win by way more than one point.
3. Arizona -3.5. The late breaking news that Arian Foster will have season ending back surgery solidifies this pick. Ben Tate is running with four broken ribs against one the best run defenses in the league. Even though Case Keenum had a great first half last week, don’t expect similar results against a significantly better secondary that the Cardinals possesses. This one could be a low scoring one, but expect a touchdown win for the Cardinals.
4. Miami -1. With all of the controversy surrounding the Dolphins right now, a lot of people are picking this week for the Buccaneers to win their first games. However, what’s being missed here, is the fact that even with all the controversy and the loss of incognito, The Dolphins are still the better team. The Bucs are a mess this year. They are on the brink of mutiny and they have lost their starting RB for the year. It’ll be close, but the Dolphins will pull this one out, because of the simple fact that Miami is more talented.
