We had a decent week 5 at 2-1. Steelers got me AGAIN! Although I did pick the Titans in a few of my contests for this week.. so I feel better. We move to a modest 10-6 record. We are up 7.05 units for the season, so let’s see if we can keep it rolling!
Minnesota Vikings PK +100 (2 Units) I hate picking road favorites. Home field advantage means a lot more in the NFL then in does anywhere else. The Redskins have one of the best home field advantages out there and the Vikings are coming off of a crushing win against the Titans. This has the makings of a letdown game for them. That being said, I believe the Vikings are a more fundamental team. I think they will bottle up the Redskins offense. Teams are starting to understand it more I think the Vikes put up a decent amount of points and win this close game! Or maybe the Redskins will come out and break out of their funk with a good win at home, The Vikings are the better team, they are coming in at even money, I’ll take it
New York Giants +7 -120 (3 Units) I don’t like the Giants, but their offense is really starting to click. Victor Cruz is emerging as one of the biggest homerun-hitting WR’s in the league. The 49ers have won the last two games by a combined 79-3. The trouble with the Giants is they just don’t care. I think they like to get behind by about 10-14 and claw their way back again. They may even win this one outright.
Seahawks +165 (2 Units) Seattle is one of the worst places to have to play. It is beginning to not be just be because of the environment… the Seattle defense plays a lot better home and are showing they play pretty good on the road too. The Patriots have one of the worst passing defenses in the NFL, they could become vulnerable to they play action pass. I think Seattle only needs about two touchdowns and a FG to win this one.
And there you have it. Best of luck this weekend and do not forget to make your picks for our “Beat the House” pick em contest!
