Saints/Vikings Reaction, Week 6 NFL Spreads Forecast

Posted by in NFL Picks on October 6th, 2008 | Comment »

Saints/Vikings Reaction:

Wow! Monday Night Football has been crazy this year to say the least. This has to be right up there with the Eagles/Cowboys game in week 2. Unfortunately, everyone is feeling sorry for the Saints. They deserved to win that one badly and really, the score could have been 38-10 if about 3 plays just went their way and the refs weren’t against them. Um, is it time to fire Ed Hocules yet? At least try to give the Saints a make up call after that blown face mask by giving them the ball after the Adrian Peterson fumble, which it was, instead of the lousy top-of-the-hand/ball-gripping explanation. Add Ed Hocules to the list of people that I would want Kimbo Slice to punch in the face. Come to think of it, I would put my money on Hocules the way Kimbo went down last week.

Luckily, I won my teaser by a point. With the Saints +4 and over 39.5, it worked out perfectly except having to be nervous down 20-10 at the half. The Monday and Sunday Night teasers continue to be working out perfectly. In fact, the Monday Night over may be the play to make every week at this pace: the over is now an unbelievable 6-0 ATS on Monday Night’s this season. That’s unprecedented. Monday Night has treated us to some very good games this year and has made my Monday Night picks 5-1.

Thank you Mr. Reggie Bush.

Week 6 NFL Spreads Forecast:

As I’m looking forward to next week, the Giants -9 over the Browns is looking appealing. The Browns are pretty awful on both sides of the ball and the Giants are playing like the defending Super Bowl champions that simply cannot be beat. For some reason the Giants -9 is at (+105), which is dubious, and is making me believe the books think this is a trap game. I’ll look into that more, but a Giants blowout is what I see as of now.

Taking the Redskins -13.5 at home may be a game to take based on the way the Rams are playing. Their defense will probably give up more than 30 to a team that is clicking and the ‘Skins defense won’t give up more than 17 to this team.

I’m also looking forward to the Lions spread. They play the Vikings on the road, and if it’s anything under 10, take the Vikings. I’ll bet against the Lions on the road any day of the week and twice on Sunday if I could. I’m guessing that the Vikings will be a 7-8 point favorites and Vikings -6.5 should be a gift.

I’m interested to see if the Dolphins can keep it going against the Texans in Houston or if the Texans can get their first win of the season at home. That game is a do not touch game to me.

Falcons/Bears is an interesting matchup in Atlanta, and I think the Bears are more for real than the Falcons, but the Falcons have a big advantage at home.

I like the Bengals/Jets game to go over 45 (teasing either team: Bengals +13 or Jets +1 should work out nicely with the over 38).

I’ll try to post my picks by Thursday, so stay tuned. In the meantime, Brandon may throw out some college picks to consider.

Good luck this week.
