Last Week: 5-7-1
Season to Date: 50-61-4

Seattle (-6) over ARIZONA

Got the push to start the week. I need a big week this week. The whole point of these columns were to show everyone how good I am at picking games. That has not been working out well. Let's do it!

WASHINGTON (-1.5) over Minnesota

You might think the Vikings should be favored by even more as they are currently enjoying a four game winning streak, but let's refresh everyone who those wins games against. The Bears, the Rodgers less Packers, the Ravens, the Browns. Credit of course to Minnesota for winning those games but I think that streak ends this week. The Vikings aren't really that good of a team coming off of a bye (saw the stat earlier to know it's true, so trust me. I'm not a look up information mood) and the Redskins are feeling pretty good after their last second win in Seattle last week. This is the game I'm going on with Freems, hoping to win my $50 back and get us to even. I like the Hogs.

Green Bay (+5.5) over CHICAGO

Oh great, this one. I just can't stop picking the Packers. They have to be able to turn it around soon, right? It's now been more than a calendar month since they've won a game. I think they can at minimum cover, but I'll also take the Packers to win, 17-16. Packers should have a easier time stopping Trubisky on 3rd down than they did Matt Stafford. If they don't win this one, I'll never pick them again this season. Oh wait, is that both Baltimore and Cleveland on the schedule in the coming weeks? This could get ugly. 

Pittsburgh (-10) over INDIANAPOLIS

I took the Colts to cover on the show, giving them the benefit of being the home team but I'm gonna switch course here. Pittsburgh's offense is clicking right now. I'll switch and take the Steelers to cover, but the cover might not come until late.

JACKSONVILLE (-5.5) over Los Angeles Chargers

I've really liked what the Jags have done on defense over the last few seasons and finally it is coming to fruition for them. Fournette is back after a team suspension, and I like Jacksonville to get the victory and eventually take the AFC South crown.

New York Jets (-2.5) over TAMPA BAY

This is beginning to be a lost season for the Buccaneers. No Winston or Evans in this one, two guys that were supposed to explode for big offensive numbers this season. So instead it's Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Bucs against Josh McCown and the Jets in a double revenge game. I'm heavy on the McCown this week in fantasy, so that's the horse I'll ride this weekend.

Cincinnati (+4.5) over TENNESSEE

I was a believe in Marcus Mariota and the Titans this season but that is fading a little bit with every week. The Bengals got waxed by Jacksonville this week but I like them to have a bounce back game here and least cover the points.

BUFFALO (+3) over New Orleans

This is the game I have the strongest "feel" on this week. I do like the Saints this season but I think their winning streak gets topped off at six. Bills are having a nice season in their own right. Who knows, maybe this is a Super Bowl Preview! That'd be an awesome, yet weird, Super Bowl pairing. 

DETROIT (-10.5) over Cleveland

Rooting for the Browns, obviously because of the NFC North. But also because I desperately don't want "Can the Browns get their first win of 2017 against the Packers?" to become a storyline in a few weeks. Because they can, and that would be embarrassing.

LOS ANGELES RAMS (-13.5) over Houston

MVP Race goes 1. Rodgers 2. DeShaun Waston

Dallas (+3) over ATLANTA

I'm really intrigued by this game and I will go with Dallas to continue their winning ways. When does Atlanta turn it around? I thought it was going to be last week and it wasn't. I don't think it will be this week so it probably will.

New York Giants (-3) over SAN FRANCISCO

Why would I write anything about this game?

New England (-7.5) over DENVER

This game is starting to make me nervous. It should be New England. It has to be New England. Their defense has been playing so much better as of late and they get to feast on Brock Osweiler. But I keep thinking about a Sunday Night Football game nearly two years ago where the Patriots went to Denver and lost in overtime to Brock Osweiler. I'll go New England, but cautiously. 

Miami (+9) over CAROLINA

Enjoy watching Miami in primetime last week? No? Watch them in primetime this week instead!
