NFL Week 9 picks - Johnny Downtown
But, before we get to the picks, let's do a happy recap from last week.
Seattle +2.5 over Oakland - LOSS - this was a superstitious bet to inspire my Raidaz ... and it worked. I'll take the loss against my record but know deep down I got this one right.
New Orleans - 1 over Pittsburgh - WIN - Just knew NO would show up and the line screamed take Pittsburgh. The perfect storm to victory.
Dallas -6.5 over Jacksonville - LOSS - Next
Detroit -2.5 over Washington - Best Bet - WIN - Thank you Donovan McNabb and Rex Grossman. I can always count on you to not come through.
Season Record - 2-2
Best Bet - 1-0
On to this week:
#1 - Buffalo +3 over Chicago - Similar to last week's pick of Detroit over Washington, Chicago is a mirage and truly stinks, Jay Cutler is the second coming of Jeff George and Buffalo is ready for victory number one. Book it.
#2 - Minnesota -8.5 over Arizona - Similar to last week's Dallas pick over Jax, but this week we will win. Minnesota will take it's frustration out on Arizona in spite of Brad Childress and all that is wrong in the Twin Cities.
#3 - Seattle +6.5 over New York Giants - Seattle at home and always love when the back-up starts that first week. Seattle keeps it close and loses on a late FG.
#4 - Atlanta -8.5 over Tampa Bay - BEST BET - Tampa Bay is exposed playing a real team this week and Atlanta is coming off a bye and at home. Atlanta wins by 20.
