Week 7: Best Bets
WE GOT TWO WINS! TWO MASSIVE WINS!
The last week has been a bit of a blur as I’ve been off spending all the winnings from week six. Not sure what colour to go for on the new car.
Don’t want to sound arrogant but I am on fire. Some of you are probably thinking it doesn’t quite make up or the 0-8-1 run over the three weeks before but you are only as good as your last performance.
And to think, I was thinking of giving up on this and writing something else. On to this week’s picks. Hopefully another massive 2-1 and another new car. Aston Martin maybe?
Bills -2.5 @ Dolphins
Not really that much to say here. The Bills are a good football team, the Dolphins are not. I know the Dolphins won last week and there were improvements, but I’m putting that down to a really bad Steelers performance more than a great Dolphins one.
The Bills have some injuries but they have enough to get the win over what I believe is a hopeless Miami team. The Dolphins sit 31st on defence against the run and while LeSean McCoy may miss the game with injury, Buffalo should still be able to rack up the yards from Tyrod Taylor at quarterback and Mike Gillislee who will start of McCoy can’t go.
Browns +10.5 @ Bengals
I’m going to keep picking the Browns in these sort of games. Should the Bengals really be giving up double digit points to anybody right now? They aren’t a very good team this year and this sort of spread feels based on what we have become used to from the Bengals more than what they have shown in 2016.
The Browns play hard every week and they are going to pull out an outright win soon. If you have listened to this week’s podcast then you will know I have taken the Browns to get the upset this week.
I like a revenge game and we get a little bit of that with Hue Jackson heading back to Cincinnati.
Come on Cleveland, get me another win.
Seahawks +1 at Cardinals
Not sure I was ever on the Carson Palmer bandwagon but I am firmly off it right now. Even when healthy he hasn’t been good this year and now he’s struggling with a hamstring injury, I like him even less. The Seahawks defence will be able to get after him all night against an offensive line that hasn’t been able to stop anybody all season.
The Seahawks are my pick to come out of the NFC and that starts with another win in Arizona where they have won three straight games.
