It's Week 10 and Gamblor is coming a day early with his
prediction because this is the week that Thursday night games start up. I do
have the NFL Network, but I also have mixed feelings on Thursday games.
first thought, extra football to watch! Awesome! But then I look at most of the
stink bombs on the schedule and realize I am going to spend three hours each
week watching either one or two worthless teams besmirch the name of football. Also, it will cause two days of people talking about how their fantasy team is in trouble, or how they have a big lead based solely on one game. Listen, your matchup isn't settled because of what one player did or did not do, lets hold off on making judgments based on that, or at least hold off on talking about them all the time.
Last week I got back to winning and put that abysmal 3-10
record behind me. Unfortunately, thanks
to the Packers, I lost my lock pick for just the second time thus far.
Last week: 8-5
Lock of the week: 7-2
Home team in CAPS
Bears (+3) over 49ERS
Don't get me wrong, the Bears are not very good. But the 49ers are just worse. Alex Smith is
not the answer at QB. He has small hands, like circus folk, but as far as I
know he doesn't smell like cabbage.
JETS (-7) over Jaguars
In the Jags last four games they barely beat the Chiefs
and Rams and got blown out by two 2-6 teams. Also, they've worked on
establishing themselves as one of the most boring teams in the NFL. Does anyone
ever look at the TV schedule and say, "Oh boy, a Jaguars game!" No, not even the people in Jacksonville.
Broncos (-3.5) over REDSKINS (LOCK OF THE WEEK)
Um. What? I get that the Broncos have been soundly beaten
the last two weeks, but the Redskins have been soundly beaten all season AND
they'll be without Portis. I'll be at this game hoping to prove myself wrong,
but LOCK OF THE WEEK.
