NFC & AFC Championship Predictions and Picks Against the Spread

Posted by in NFL Picks on January 22nd, 2010 | Comment »

The NFC and AFC Championships are finally here.  Thanks to those who signed up for our Facebook page.  If you sign up for the page, you’ll be notified on your Facebook news feed when new articles are updated on THE PASS RUSH, which is simply amazing!

It’s a good way to keep in touch with us during the offseason since you’ll likely not hear from me again after the Super Bowl until August.  Actually, I may stop in in late February, early March to get the fantasy baseball talk heated up, which I play pretty competitively.  Those articles will, of course, be posted on our sister site, THE HIGH HEAT.

I hope you remember to come back next season and sign up for the Pick ‘Em league, which I’ll be doing again next season and will also be delivering an NFL custom shop t-shirt to the winner.  Deez Nuts just got his, which I’m sure he’ll be rocking for his Vikings.

The season, like any, has had its fair share of ups and downs.  For me there were slightly more ups than downs.  We had some hot streaks and there have been some cold ones, but for me, the hot have outnumbered the cold and that’s what we try to strive for each season.

We had a fantastic week this past week.  Our picks were 3-1 in the divisional round.  Although I played the games lightly since it’s playoff football, it still moved me up a few units, which is what we want going into the NFC and AFC Championship games.  You may also want to check out Vernon Croy’s Super Bowl Picks.  Let’s get to the my NFC and AFC Championship picks.

NFL Divisional Playoff Picks Against the Spread

Posted by in NFL Picks on January 14th, 2010 | Comment »

At first site, I thought the spreads were average, but now I’m starting to fall more in love with my picks. But you’re not going to make big money in the playoffs — the easy money was made betting against the Lions, Raiders, Rams, Bucs, Browns, and Chiefs in the first half of the season before the books caught on. That part of the season is over.  Now we have some fun money to play around with and that’s all we’re going to do. No big bets for me this week, but a little something to keep things fun.

You should also sign up for a FACEBOOK PAGE, which I just made, to keep in touch with us through the offseason.  Do it! I’m doing the pick ’em league next year too with the winner getting an NFL custom shop t-shirt. Deez Nutz just won a Vikings t-shirt.  Pretty cool.

Onto last week’s summary.

Luckily, we hit the Ravens last week.  I told you Ray Rice would have a big game and that Randy Moss would get shut down, but I didn’t want to wager too much on the road against the undefeated Tom Brady at home in the playoffs.  But I went with my gut and took the Ravens to get a little back after the Bengals let me down.

My thesis on Bengals winning at home was wrong since Mark Sanchez didn’t suck like he usually does since all he had to do is hand the ball off to that fat ass from Iowa University who had a monster game and that Darrelle Revis guy shut down Chad Johnson.  Fortunately for Sanchez and his half-stache, he has the privilege of having the best offensive line in football.…

NFL Wild Card Weekend Picks Against the Spread

Posted by in NFL Picks on January 6th, 2010 | Comment »

Playoff football is finally here.  Last week, our picks went 3-1 with our sole loss by a half point. Some of you may have even been lucky enough to have that one push if you got the line at -4 instead of -4.5.

We’ve also been cleaning up in hockey, as we added 3 units of profit to our yearly total yesterday and we are up a whopping 12 units.  We hit a rough spot early in the season with some unfortunate shootouts, but a little perseverance and hot streak has us up big.

This week, I’m eying up the Wild Card lines to see if there are any good plays to make. Unfortunately, 3 of the games are rematches from week 17.  When has that ever happend?


The Jets blanked the Bengals 37-0 last week to earn a shot in the playoffs.  That game meant nothing for the Bengals.  Carson Palmer played just a half before handing the game over to J.T. O’Sullivan.  I think this is a chance to take advantage of last week’s game.  Without last week, I’m sure the Bengals would be 4-6.5 point favorites.  The Jets D will keep this game tight, but I will have to bet against the rookie in his NFL playoff debut. The Bengals are not going to let the Jets run for over 250 yards again. Sanchez threw for a mere 63 yards last week. When the playoff pressure is on, I think you’ll see him throw a pick or two to the Bengals. I think the Bengals are the best play to make this week.


All of you know that I’m an Eagles fan.  Sure, …

NFL Week 17 Picks Against the Spread

Posted by in NFL General on January 1st, 2010 | Comment »

It’s Week 17 in the NFL and playoff spots are on the line.  Hopefully you took down Florida and Ohio State today in the Bowl games today.  Those were both easy wins in the big bowl games.  Sorry Brandon’s picks this Bowl season have been dismal.  He had a good season overall, but I found some of those calls on some Bowl games rather suspect.  There’s a lot of meaningless games to gauge, but here is what I like tomorrow.

1.) Bears -3 over LIONS — Hopefully the Bears can continue what they started last week.  Even though this game is meaningless, I think the Bears have more heart than the Lions and want to end the season with a big win.

2.) Steelers -3 over DOLPHINS — This is a potential playoff game for the Steelers and when they have to rise to the occasion, they usually do.  Like the win over the Packers.

3.) Titans -4.5 over SEAHAWKS — The Seahawks have been terrible and the Titans should run over them. However, the Titans D has been a concern lately and I don’t love them on the road, but I think they win this one.  A 3-4 point win won’t surprise me though, but I don’t see this game playing out any other way than a domination by the Titans.

4.) PANTHERS -7 over Saints — Saints will be resting players. Brees will not see any action as he’s the #3 QB today. Mark Brunell will start for the Saints. Look for the Panthers to roll over the Saints B Team.


5.) CHARGERS -3.5 over Redskins — Hard to gauge what kind of effort you’ll get from the Chargers since they have the 2nd …
