Fellow Rumblers, betting season is almost over. I'd like a few winners to end the year on a good note. Let's recap last week's picks and make a few for the most exciting two games in recent playoff history. Last week's picks:
DEN-10**: (L) Wow - didn't see that one coming. Neither did almost everyone I know who likes to wager on football games. Ray Lewis' career lives for another week...will it finally end in Foxboro?
GB@SF OVER 45***: (W) Every over covered this past weekend. Let that tell you something for this weekend and the Super Bowl.
ATL-2.5*: (L) Last week I wrote, "I may regret this one because Seattle is taking Buffalo's role in the post-season...the role of always costing me money." Boy was I right. A HUGE lead comes down to a loss by a half-freakin-point! Thank you for the consistency, Seattle!
NE-9.5***: (W) The Brady Bunch did what they were supposed to do, beat an over-achieving team with an average at best QB.
2-2-0 on the week, 55-49-2 on the week.
Championship Sunday lines:
SF@ATL+4.5 o/u 49
BAL@NE-8 o/u 51.5
This may seem desperate. I assure you it is not...
SF@ATL OVER 49***: This line is moving big time in favor of San Francisco...That scares me. Atlanta's defense is really good. Oh, and their offense is too. We all know what SF is capable of when things are going in their favor. I do think they win it, but it's gonna be a shoot out and Matty Ice goes out in a blaze of glory.
BAL@NE OVER 51.5***: New England's defense will give up some points. New England's offense will score some points. Balty will be doing something similar. Not sure if they'll cover the 8 they're getting, but they're not gonna roll over like Houston did. I see POINTS, Points, points!
What do you guys (and gals) like this weekend?
