Weekend Plays

Will post here with any football plays, frantically trying to go back in time and catch up on hockey and basketball.

Kansas St @ Kansas (+24 -106)

It is a depressing thought it is already Week 9 for College Football.  Waaaaaaaaaaaay back at the beginning of the season I noted how tempting Kansas’ season over looked @ 3.  Ultimately, it was a pass, based largely on analysis from Bill Connelly, who noted that the massive turnover Kansas was going to experience this year in their secondary was a giant, sprawling, waving in your face red flag re: defensive success.  Thankfully, we have steered clear of the Jayhawks, but this seems like a good match-up to take a chance on them.  Kansas St does not have one of the better aerial attacks in the Big-12, and 90% of the money is on the Wildcats.  Kansas seems due, let’s hope.

Week 7 NFL

First…hey, we have a podcast this week!

Now the picks:

Bears +3 (+105)

Bears are 3-0 ATS at home this year. The positive juice plus Cam Newton’s shoody QB play pretty much clinches this bet for us.

Green Bay +165

This is a game on the road the Saints always lose. Even to the backup QB.

Buffalo -3 (-120)

Tampa stinks.

Seahawks at Giants Over 39

TEASER: MIN -4.5 and Under 38

Just saw the Ravens’ inactives on offense. Yeesh.

Math play here…and I feel this should be around 42. Defensive TDs should happen in this game.

Chicago +3
DAL -6
NE/ATL Over 56

Miracle Covers Podcast

Sean and I talk about each division, with a focus the NFC South, NFC North and AFC West and why the US Soccer team failed to qualify for the World Cup (Spoiler: They are old)

Week 6 NFL

New England vs New York Over 47.5 (-110)

No Stephon Gilmore on a Pats defense already reeling. I think even the Jets can score 20-24 today. Pats get Gronk back so offense should return to normal after soft performance last week in Tampa.

Arizona +2

Dunno why Tampa favored on the road here. This should be a pick em or Arizona -1 IMO

Giants vs Broncos Over 38.5 (-115)

This is more of a math play. Both offenses terrible but watch randomness happen. And defensive TDs

Minnesota +3.5

80% of the money on Green Bay

Teaser +125

Detroit +4
Arizona +2
Pats -10

NFL Plays

Good day yesterday, let’s see if we can keep it rolling.  I’ll update with any last second action.

Ravens/Raiders Over 40 -105

The Ravens are due for some positivity on offense, and the Raiders’ secondary is just mediocre enough that I think Flacco will have a good day.  EJ Manuel was actually moving the team a bit after Carr went down.
