After a scrappy, gutty, [white player adjective] 10-3 record last week, my hasty Week 6 picks are full of real wieners.
After I realized I went 10-3 last week and into the top 25 of Hot Clicks' Pool Tracker picks league, I thought to myself, "I have to do something courageous and epic for next week's picks. I have to embed the workout montage from the Hundred Dollar Baby episode of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia,' Season 2."
|It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia||Mondays 9pm / 8c|
Totally epic, I know.
Now, I have to make this week's picks because I'm going to see 'Drive' and then I'm probably going to sue somebody.
FALCONS (-5.5) over Panthers
Colts (+7.5) over BENGALS
At 0-5, the Colts are good for a scare here.
49ers (+5.5) over LIONS
Okay, obviously I don't want this to happen, nor is this a concession that I think the Lions will lose, but I'm nervous about the MNF hangover effect making this one closer than Joe Flacco's eyebrows.
Rams (+15.5) over PACKERS
I just don't think this is a good week for the NFL's 5-0 teams to cover. That's all.
Eagles (+0.5) over REDSKINS
GIANTS (-3.5) over Bills
STEELERS (-13.5) over Jags
Texans (+7.5) over RAVENS
Still no Andre Johnson and Mario Williams is lost for the season, so that should scream That's So Raven, especially after a tough loss to Oakland at home and playing a team fresh off their bye. I'm not falling for that trap, though.
Raiders picked up an emotional cover/win last week in Houston for Al Davis. Baby, you better believe there will be enough carry over into this week's game against the troubled Browns in front of The Black Hole.
Cowboys (+7.5) over PATRIOTS
This is Tony Romo's Super Bowl. Covering this spread, that is.
BUCS (+3.5) over Saints
If it's true Blount has a torn MCL, my confidence in this pick is not all there, but I'll stick with it anyway.
BEARS (-3.5) over Vikings
Dolphins (+9.5) over JETS
If Brandon Marshall actually gets ejected a quarter and a half into this game, despite being in
beast monster mode up to that point, I'd like to amend this pick.
Last week: 10-3
