Bang! 11-3 last week! …and that’s how we do it at GmenHQ.com. That puts me at 88-45 for the year which makes me the sole owner of third place against the ESPN “Experts”. Wickersham is first at 94-38 and Mortensen is second at 92-40. Next season we may need to start our own panel of experts.
There are lots of fun games this week, let’s discuss three games right now.
Colts @ Jaguars The Colts will win. Colts are 5-3 and getting better every week. The Jaguars are 1-7 and I see no improvement. Jacksonville may get a few wins when star RB Maurice Jones-Drew returns but for now this team has no life. This sounds crazy but I might let MJD rest and recover for the entire season at this point. Why risk another injury when there is nothing to gain. Thinking like that is why I’m not a coach. Of all the things I’ve lost I miss my mind the most.
Giants @ Bengals Giants win. The Bengals are giving up 27.3 points/game and they are 1-3 at home. Giants are scoring 28.2 points/game and are 3-1 on the road. The Giants have been struggling a bit recently but those struggles have come against teams with much more power than the Bengals. Also, Giants are +14 takeaways and Bengals are -5, so look for the Giants to capitalize the Bengals’ sloppy play.
Titans @ Dolphins Dolphins will win. The Dolphins D is giving up just 18.6 points/game compared to 34.2 point/game for the Titans D (worst in the league). The Dolphins are 2-1 at home and the Titans are 1-3 on the road. I expect to see a big game from Miami RB Reggie Bush.
Enjoy the game tonight. More picks tomorrow…
