How did you do in our Week 12 NFL picks across the spread?
Did you take any of my advice to make some money off of your bets?
Great if you did! Too bad if you didn’t, because you could have bought Christmas gifts for the kids.
The NFL bye weeks are officially done, which means it’s full games from here on in. Which means 16 games which to handicap, which gets tougher as teams play for their lives.
I went 11-3 for Week 12 in the NFL, although I am extremely pissed off at the games I lost on. They should have gone the other way, but I will explain this in greater detail.
Here are the games I picked correctly for Week 12
- Browns +10.5-They were hungry after helmet-gate
- Giants +6.5-Don’t trust Mitch with a big spread
- Jets +3-My pick of the week
- Panthers +9.5-Too big a spread for a Saints team in the mix
- Bucs +4-Ugly football is still a win
- Redskins +3.5-Detroit sucks
- Titans +3-The Jags can jag-off the rest of the season
- Cowboys +6.5-This had low score written all over it
- 49ers -3-No way were the Packers going to do anything but cry
- Ravens +3-Lamar ran all over them so badly he left marks
So those were the winner-winner, chicken dinners.
I tried to use as much maths and predictions as I could here, but still not close to a perfect week.
I haven’t had one of those in 2 years, always looking.
Here are the games that screwed me over.
Broncos vs Bills
The Broncos D was coming off that HUGE loss to the Vikings the week before, and the Bills have been coasting along. They also have an upcoming Thanksgiving game, so you would think that this should have lead to a Broncos victory of cover? No, because their QB is garbage, and they have no one left on the team. The Bills were able to move the ball around effectively and Josh Allen continues to impress. The Bills now have a solid position going into the playoffs.
The Broncos can suck it.
Steelers vs Bengals
Everyone should smoke the Bengals right? Not the hapless Steelers, who needed last half heroics to salvage this game. I thought that they would rely on their D, and move the ball on the ground. Mason Rudolph wasn’t having that, tossing the ball around like an idiot. To many penalties, to much stupidity. Rudolph was eventually benches, which led to a score, but Pittsburgh is now in my crap books the rest of the season. I might actually by a Steelers NFL jersey, just to burn it.
Seahawks vs Eagles
The Eagles have been able to put some good games together with a tight D, and I figured that the Eagles at home, with a playoff spot slipping away-that they might do something tough and fun. Nope. Russell Wilson made them look like chumps, and the receiving and running corp blasted the Eagles into oblivion. To make matters worse, the Seahawks D which I thought was struggling, actually looked good against Wentz. Is he a franchise QB? I don’t know about that.
