Dave's LOCKS of the Week: Week 6 -- Disappointments of the Week
I had a bad week last week!
HOWWW BAD WAS IT...
It was so bad, the Packers took the field and at the end of the game, the Detroit Lions walked off of it. ZING!! I'm killing it, on
of the Week (zzzzzt!)
Dave's DISAPPOINTMENTS of the Week
Oi! My streak of winning weeks on LOTW hung in the air and rested on a ball Mason Crosby kicked near the end of Regulation at FedEx Field against the Redskins. And by God, it was so close to hitting, and with it, my unbeaten streak. But no!! It hit off the crossbar despite having plenty of distance!! The Packers would go on to lose in Overtime and blow the -2.5 point cover. Argh!
Enough of the rants, we try to rebound as we enter...
DISAPPOINTMENTS of the Week. To the picks!
We start in HOU-STONNNN! Where the Texans face the Chiefs. Ok, so "HOU-STONNN" doesn't have quite the ring that "KAN-SAS City!" does, but what does ring is the ears of the Texans after getting beaten to death by the NY Football Giants. This week, I dare say the Chiefs start a new streak, that is, a LOSING one, as the Ranging Texans (yipee, yee ha!) stampede the sneaking Chiefs (HOW, Otowe!) and destroy the (-4.5) point spread. Texans by 5+ at least!.
Onward, from the Texas Toast up to the Spirit of New Englannnnd! (WBZ Booostoonn!) and Gillette Stadium. At the Razor this week: The Patriots host the surging Baltimore Ravens who are slowly finding their offense. Flacco has been off to a rough start no doubt, but quoth this Raven... "Never more!" The Brady Bunch will not have that easy of a start and as you remember, the Ravens still have them figured out if last year's Wild Card game was any indication. Look for the Ravens to peck all over the Minute Men in Massachussets and cover the +3 easily.
Now let's go on to our DOG of the Week (woof woof!)
Down the rivers and lakes we go from Massachussets to Cleveland Ohio. Big Ben makes his return for the Steelers on the road at Browns Stadium. The Steelers coming off a bye and looking hungry, but wait just a second! The Browns have given many teams a tough time all year long and have had 3 point spreads almost every week. Now all of a sudden they're a +13.5 point underdog?? Something is amiss, and these bloodhounds will sniff it out. Let's take the points in Cleveland with the Moon over Parma and take the BROWNS to bark out the points (+13.5) against the visiting Steel Curtain.
And THESE are our rebound picks for
of the Week (blamm!)
To Review: Houston -2.5; Baltimore +3; Cleveland +13.5
