NFL 2012: Week 4 Picks and Stone Cold Locks – Totals, Againt the Spread and Money Line

Remember what we talked about last week? If it seems too good to be true, it is. Well we broke that rule last week (We’re in this together now) and it proved to be our only loss. We went 2-1 and finished +2.7 units.  That brings our season total to 5-4 and currently -0.75  units. This week provides us a chance to get back on top. It is time to look to some unlikely heroes to lead us.

Jaguars +100 (4 Units) :Quick…. Who was the only runningback last season to average over 100 yards per game? The same guy who lead the league in rushing yards (240 yards more than Ray Rice who came in 2nd) That man is Maurice Jones-Drew and he brings his 5.3 yards per carry against the NFL’s 31st ranked rushing defense, the Bengals. The Jags own the 30th worst rushing defense, but hey, Green-Ellis is no MJD. Jags win straight up!

Rams +3 -110 (2.5 units): Who is that surprise team everybody is talking about ? The one that beat Dallas by 20 and knocked off the Packers as time expired? Potentially one of the best defenses in the NFL ? The Seahawks…. They are playing the lowly Rams…. Seems like a gimmieright ? Wrong. Seattle always plays well at home, let’s see how they do in a dome. I know they beat the Rams in St. Louis last year, but this is a much different rams team than last year and they will hang tough.

Redskins +110 (3 units):RG3 is the real deal. The offense is clicking and the defense for the skins will get a much needed boost… by playing the Tampa Bay Bucs. The Bucs played their best defense against a woeful Dallas offense last week, and still lost. I see the skins scoring in the mid 30’s and Bucs somewhere around the low 20’s.

Saints/Packers  o53.5 -108 (2 units):A fourth pick ? Of course! The Saints defense is horrible and the offense is explosive. Another sad disappointing day for Drew Brees , as I feel the Packers will take the win, but not until a shootout that will see each team score in the 30’s.
