Wow – Vinnie is on a roll! Going to be buying myself a Plasma TV if this hot streak continues. Went undefeated (3-0) last week! The previous weeks have been very kind also. Just remember the highs and lows, so keep you bets the same amount, i.e., don’t double your average bet just because you are ahead.
New England easily kept the game within 8 points (actually won outright), and Baltimore’s victory was never in doubt.
Chicago clobbered the Chargers, and Dallas destroyed the Redskins. Although, the Skins almost covered, with the QB Rag Doll Ramsey, the Cowboys just had to wait until the Skins made a mistake.
I hope you played the NE/Baltimore teaser last week. I’ll have another teaser later in the article. Sportsbetting.com has teasers (Vegas doesn’t). I wouldn’t go crazy with teasers, but if you can find the right opportunities…
On to this weeks’ gems…
Bears +2 @ Detroit: Detroit won an easy game last week as Oakland fell apart with injuries to their QB. Chicago played solid ball and beat up the Chargers. Bears are playing to win with an experienced QB (Chandler). Lions are playing out the string w/out their star Rogers, and with a young QB Harrington who hasn’t looked good at all. Bears +2 (3 stars)
Jets –3 @ Oakland: Jets are a tough football team that plays every down hard. Maybe I’m a homer here, but Oakland just stinks, and the players are arguing with the coaches. Hate to back a road team laying points, but, you at least will get a quality play from the Jets side. Jets –3 (2 stars)
Finally, a teaser for 3 stars:
Arizona +7.5 @ Pittsburgh. There will be riots in the street if Pittsburgh loses this game. Arizona’s secondary is terrible, and Pittsburgh needs a win badly. So, Teaser this down to Pittsburgh –7.5 (+6) = Pittsburgh (-1.5)
Indianapolis –6 @ Jacksonville. I like Jacksonville, Leftwich doesn’t give up, and the backdoor cover is always a possibility. But, Indianapolis with Manning and Harrison is NOT going to lose this game. Indianapolis –6 (+6) = Indy pick
So, the Teaser play is Pittsburgh –1.5, and Indy pick
Bears +2 – 3 stars (Try to find the moneyline if you can, this won’t be close)
Jets –3 (2 stars)
Pittsburgh –1.5, Indy pick (3 stars)
