I can’t believe it is already week 16
Bills fans’ thoughts about their team are obscene
The playoff hopes are slim
Just like Rex’s job prospects are dim
While Whaley hides behind a smokescreen

I hope everyone has a great holiday season and that you only bet on winners this week! Continue reading

This week I am in the holiday spirit and get to play Santa Claus for all 32 NFL teams.  Some are naughty, some are nice… but all of them come with picks for the low low price of free.


Saturday Night Football

Miami at NY Jets (+2.5)

Miami: A new knee ligament for Ryan Tannehill who’s actually starting playing well.

NY Jets: A non-bearded quarterback, enough said.

NFL Spread Picks for Week 14

It’s week 14, otherwise known as the time when Bills fans stop thinking about playoffs and start thinking about draft position. A bunch of great games this week with playoff positioning on the line and then also one of the worst games of the year as well. As the weather gets colder, teams that can run the ball seem to have a bit of an advantage and the kicking game becomes more important as well.  Will this favor teams like Tennessee, Buffalo and Dallas all of whom have strong running games or can teams like the Redskins and Falcons keep up their playoff pushes through the air?  As Chris Berman likes to say…”that’s why they play the games.”  On to the picks.

Time flies when you are having fun, and this football season has certainly flown by.  It is now December, time for the pretenders to fall away and the contenders to step it up.  It is a great Sunday for football with several games between potential playoff teams taking place. I’m really looking forward to seeing the Bills stay “in the hunt” for several weeks, hoping that this might be the year the drought ends.  But as they say… “the more things change, the more they stay the same” On to the picks!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone as we give thanks that the election is over and that playoff football is just around the corner.  Call this week the leftover week because leftovers are my favorite and I love favorites this week.  If you are into teasers, there is a lot of money to be made.  But if that isn’t your jam, just stick to mashed potatoes and gravy and wolf down my picks!

Time for my week 11 picks, I had my bye week last week and come into late November well rested for a playoff run.  There are a couple “go against the public” picks this week that I really like, along with an easy blowout.  Consider this week’s column my gift to you, to make some money for all that shopping coming up.  On to the picks!

Midway point of the season and I figured it was a good time to give out some midseason awards.  The awards have been voted on by an esteemed panel of judges (me) and the award winners will get absolutely nothing. But on the other hand it is my column and I can write about whatever I want. Continue reading

Don’t call it a comeback… but yes that is a winning record you see for last week. I am sorry for losing money for everyone that had been fading my picks.  But you know what they say about karma.  I hate how the NFL only has 2 late afternoon games this week. There is no reason to have a 9am London game and 6 teams on byes during the same week.  Speaking of byes, why doesn’t the NFL just give every division their own bye week and then have them play each other the week after the bye? Then nobody gets an unfair advantage and it is easy for people to remember.  Of course, we are talking about the NFL and common sense here, my bad.  On a good note for Roger, in a very scientific poll I did on Twitter (@yardsperpass) people thought that Gary Bettman was worse than him. Congrats Roger, you don’t suck the most! On that high note… let’s get to the picks!

NFL Week 7 Spread Picks

No Big Ben, but Pittsburgh still has their bell cow, Leveon.

Playoffs? You talking about playoffs? I can’t even have a winning week, and you want to talk about playoffs? Almost halfway through the season and time sure is flying by, can you believe that right now the Bills lead the NFL in point differential?  Or that the Panthers are 1-5 after going 15-1 last year?  I am sure we all had Matt Ryan leading the NFL in passing and Lorenzo Alexander leading the NFL in sacks.  All of these weird occurrences are what make sports great… and gambling on them even better!  Fueled by a lighter wallet, it is on to the picks.

Welcome to week 6 of my Friday picks column or as the kids call it these days, bet the opposite and make a lot of money.  Generally speaking, if you flip a coin you should be about 50% on picks vs the spread.  I, however, have shown that with a little bit of effort you can be 15 games under .500 in only 5 weeks, a sparkling 40% win rate.  However, that is before I started playing for real… I have decided to give 110% in my picks this week and guarantee a winning record or your money back. Where else can you get a deal like that?  On to the picks!
