Fact of the Day, Early Week 9 Thoughts

Posted by in NFL Picks on November 3rd, 2009 | Comment »

What a Monday Night game. If you read my comments on this game (you have to read the comments guys), you saw that I was not in favor of the spread for either team and if you watched the game, you obviously saw why I passed on this game. If you had the Saints -10 you were in the money until the Falcons decided to kick a field goal in the final minutes of the game, which was a real kick in the nuts to sports bettors.

I also said to consider the over despite the high 55.5 points it was set at and that was almost locked up by halftime.

Finally, my recommended play on the game was to tease the game in either direction and take the Falcons +18.5 or Saints -5.5 and the over 49. If you teased the game that way, you were an easy winner regardless of which team you took.

Now to the Fact of the Day: The New Orleans Saints defense has more touchdowns than the Cleveland Browns offense. Oh how I love betting against the Browns this season.  It’s too bad they have their bye week this week.

A quick glance at the early lines has me liking Green Bay -9.5 over the Bucs and that’s pretty much the only game that I find attractive on Sunday’s lineup for the spreads that have already been released. I will also be waiting patiently to jump on the Saints over the Panthers and Falcons over the Redskins next week if the number looks attractive.  Unfortunately, those will both be 10+ point spreads.  If you get a single-digit spread on either the Saints or Falcons, I would be a buyer!

All my NFL picks will be released tomorrow.

Thank you to the readers who sent a beer over my way (via the beer icon on the right), its’ truly appreciated.  Don’t forget to check The Triple Double for NBA picks.  Brandon went 3-1 tonight, so he got some wins back with some strategic 1st half lines.
