Football Picks Week 5 2009

Ok I went 11-3 straight up and 8-6 against the spread, so far 21-9 n 8-6 against the spread so far this year. So here goes week 5 picks both straight up and against the points.

MINN this looks like an easy win for the Vikings I have to go with the hot hand of favre and there d is good, I see a two touchdown win here.  However, they are on the road and strange things have happened, but I am also giving 10.5 to the Rams.

Dall going with the favorite hear, but I like KC and 7.5, Dallas just not impressive, and if cassel can get something going could keep it close.

Car , but take Wash n 4 not sure what Car team will show up.

Philly no problem here, but I just cannot give the 15 here, so take TB and the points

NYG take a lopsided win to the house, this has to be the lock of the week, take NYG and give the points

I like Buff at home but not very potent on off so lets take Clev and the points, DA might be back to where he was a couple of years ago and they can run the ball.

BALT at home but man cincy is plying good so take cincy and the 8.5

Pitt has not really been beating any team by alot, but Det is still Det, and Pitt should walk all over them so give the points here

SF they are playing real well, and are only one miracle play from being undefeated, (i will keep saying this until they get there second loss).  Some people like Atl here, but I am going with the the hot team and give the 2.5.

NE last week I smelled the Denver upset over Dall, but this week, Denv will be no match for the pats, so pats straight and give the 3 points.

Ariz I like AZ at home here,houstons D not the greatest, so Card should be able to put up some points, look for a 7 point win here.  Take Cards straight up and give the 5.5

JAC OK so I have not picked any underdogs yet  so here is my first one, take JAC to win + the points.

TENN, ok can they go 0-5, I am thinking no way, Tenn always plays them tough so this is my second underdog pick, but if they lose this one I will not pick them again.

MIA, Dolphins underdogs at home against a rookie QB that has played well early, but I am thinking teams are going to start to figure him out so he needs to adjust his game, just not this week.  Take Miami straight up and take the points.

There you have it, my pics for week 5, so far so good.  Hopefully I and keep it up so I can beat the so called experts.

Football picks for Week 4 2009

Well my first week was so-so at 62.5% but I beat Prisco's picks at 53%, cannot be all that bad.

Wash should be able to handle the bucs this week looking for a big game for Moss and Cambpell, but they are giving 8 at home this is a lot of points for a team that has a hard time scoring, but going with Wash both straight up and points.

Hous this looks like an easy win as well as the Raiders are having a hard time scoring points or generating any type of offense, plus take Houston giving 8.5, I am looking at a 10+ win here.

Tenn can Tennessee go 0-4 to start the year, it is possible since Jacksonville's offense was clicking last week adn they are back at home,  I am looking at a close game here, so take Jax and the points, but I am taking Tenn if they go 0-4 someones head is gooing to roll and it will be the QB's

Balt , I just think baltimore is clicking better right now and Brady is just not right yet, look for BALT to win and take the 1.5

Cinn has been playing better the last couple of games beating Pitt and GB, so it looks like a no brainer here, but I will take clev and the 6.5 it is a division game.

Giants should easily win the points and the game, take NYG clearly looking like the best team in the NFC righ now

CHI needs to win this game and big to show that the Lions one game win was just a fluke, if this is not a 10 + point win than Lovie needs to step down.  Take chic straight up and give the  10

Indy well another team that is favored by more than a TD, Indy really looked good last week against Ariz and should win this easily at home, take Indy and the points

NO I like NO here but the Jets are going to play them tough, if NO handles NYJ easily than they might be right up there with NYG as the class of the NFC.  I am not a believer right now, but a convincing win here will change my mind, but right now need to take NYJ and the points but NO to win here

I have to go with Buff in this pickem game, new QB is my reasoning here, but if RB can run than Miami might win, but I will stick with BUFF

SF playing really well right and one spectacular win away from 3-0.  So they should win here, but I like STL to keep it close SF offense not the greatest. So take StL and the 9.5

Denv upset of the week, Denv D playing real well now, hard to run against, I see them throttling Dallas run game so Romo will have to throw and it will be tough going, take denv to win and take the 3 points

Pitt has not impressed this year playing close games, so I like Pitt to win, but I like SD and the 6.5

Minn , just do not think Aaron is the answer in GB, Minn D is good, but this game is a test to see who is the better team right now and Minn coming off that miraculous will ride that emotion with a tough win against a div opponet, but I like GB and the 4.5 here.

There you have it my wk 4 picks, I am hoping to improve on my 62.5% win % with an ultimate goal is to beat the so called CBS experts, plus I am including my points spread favorites.  Looking for a fun season.
