4 units on Philadelphia -3.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

52-12. No Touchdowns. 1-21 in games below 40 degrees. These stats don’t mean a thing according to Jon Gruden and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Eagles knocked Tampa Bay ou...

Sunday 01/12 04:30 PM Eastern

4 units on Oakland -5.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Who isn’t on the Jet’s bandwagon? The media was talking Super Bowl even before last week’s 41-0 stomping of Indianapolis. Chad Pennington looks like the greate...

San Francisco at Tampa Bay
Sunday 01/12 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Tampa Bay -6 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Atlanta at Philadelphia
Saturday 01/11 08:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Philadelphia -7.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Atlanta sure did look good last week in Green Bay. Or was it that Green Bay just looked bad? It won’t matter this week. The Birds of the South are flying North for the win...

Pittsburgh at Tennessee
Saturday 01/11 04:30 PM Eastern

4 units on Tennessee -4 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Sunday 01/05 04:30 PM Eastern

4 units on New York +3.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

New York is riding a four-game winning streak and brings a lot of confidence into the playoffs while San Francisco has to be questioning how far they will go this year. New York...

Cleveland at Pittsburgh
Sunday 01/05 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Cleveland +8 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Nobody’s giving Cleveland much of a chance in this one. Having lost both contests this year to the Steelers, they are the only touchdown-plus underdog this week. That&rsqu...

04

Indianapolis at New York
Saturday 01/04 04:30 PM Eastern

4 units on Indianapolis +6 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Can anyone stop the ground and air “force” of the New York Jay-Eee-Tee-Ess – JETS – JETS – JETS? I don’t think the Colts can. Indianapolis h...

San Francisco at St. Louis
Monday 12/30 09:00 PM Eastern

4 units on St. Louis +2 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

As long as Tampa Bay beats Chicago on Sunday, San Francisco will have nothing to play for in this game. They locked up the division three weeks ago and can’t win home fiel...

Atlanta at Cleveland
Sunday 12/29 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Cleveland +2.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Sunday 12/29 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Houston +8.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Monday 12/23 09:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Tampa Bay -3.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

If Tampa Bay can shut down Michael Vick, can they shut down Tommy Maddox? Even without the fear instilled from Maddox’s scary injury, the answer is an easy yes. In two gam...

22

Denver at Oakland
Sunday 12/22 04:15 PM Eastern

4 units on Oakland -3.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

The Broncos recent tailspin started with a week ten 34-10 lashing by the Raiders. The rematch could result in one of two reactions from the Broncos: motivating revenge or stifli...

22

Chicago at Carolina
Sunday 12/22 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Chicago +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

A game with no playoff implications – must be the NFC. Neither team has much to play for here so I’ll keep the analysis short and to the point. My power ratings giv...

22

New York at Indianapolis
Sunday 12/22 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on New York +5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

New York still has a decent shot at the playoffs – if they win their last two games. The Colts would like to win, too but can still make it to the playoffs if they lose th...

4 units on Jacksonville +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

15

Arizona at St. Louis
Sunday 12/15 08:30 PM Eastern

4 units on Arizona +11 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

I know, I know. After the Cardinals got spanked by the Raiders a few weeks ago I said I would never bet on a Plummer-led team again. Well, never say never.   I still thin...

Kansas City at Denver
Sunday 12/15 04:05 PM Eastern

4 units on Kansas City +3.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Baltimore at Houston
Sunday 12/15 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Houston +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

The Texans came through for me last week and I like them to do it again this week. Give an expansion team confidence and they just might forget they aren't supposed to win games...

Sunday 12/15 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Carolina +8.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Pittsburgh is reeling after losing to Houston as a 13.5 point favorite. That's the kind of loss that can affect a team for the rest of the season. Flash back to 1998 when the St...

4 units on Cleveland +2.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

New York at Chicago
Sunday 12/15 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Chicago +6.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Week 14

08

Oakland at San Diego
Sunday 12/08 04:15 PM Eastern

4 units on San Diego +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

This should be a good one. These two clubs typically play each other close with 7 of the last 9 contests decided by 7 points or less. Oakland and Rich Gannon, in particular, ar...

08

Detroit at Arizona
Sunday 12/08 04:05 PM Eastern

4 units on Detroit +1 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Arizona is giving points? Someone pinch me! The Cardinals have lost six straight, including a 0-49 drubbing last week by the Chiefs. It was Arizona’s worst loss ever. How...

New Orleans at Baltimore
Sunday 12/08 04:05 PM Eastern

4 units on Baltimore +2.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

The warm-blooded Saints have to travel to what should be a cold-weather game. Three key New Orleans players are hurting: QB Aaron Brooks, RB Deuce McAllister and CB Dale Carter....

08

Philadelphia at Seattle
Sunday 12/08 04:05 PM Eastern

4 units on Seattle +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Wow. Philadelphia has been the most impressive team over the last two weeks in my opinion. Losing McNabb was a major blow given how much of their offense he accounted for. To wi...

08

Cincinnati at Carolina
Sunday 12/08 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Cincinnati +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

What I said last week about Cincinnati still holds. They are a much different (better) team than the team that started the season. They outplayed Baltimore last week but handed ...

08

Houston at Pittsburgh
Sunday 12/08 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Houston +13.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Too many points. After two great games, Kordell Stewart gets the bench. Right call? Not in my book. Momentum is too rare and too precious in the NFL and doing something to upse...

08

San Francisco at Dallas
Sunday 12/08 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Dallas +4.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Ahhhhh… Memories of the early 1990’s. Not quite the matchup we saw back then, now is it? However, despite the fact that San Francisco has managed to stay atop the l...

Baltimore at Cincinnati
Sunday 12/01 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Cincinnati +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

How bad is Cincinnati? I will go out on a limb and say not so bad… anymore. Before you call me crazy, read on. Yes, the Bengals started out pathetic. In their first six ...

Pittsburgh at Jacksonville
Sunday 12/01 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Jacksonville +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Washington at Dallas
Thursday 11/28 04:05 PM Eastern

4 units on Dallas +1.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

One of the biggest NFL rivalries continues Thursday in Big D. But wait, does Spurrier care? To him, this is just another game. He’s bigger than any rivalry. I love the fa...

28

New England at Detroit
Thursday 11/28 12:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Detroit +5.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

This is a big game for Detroit. Without the playoffs in sight, this nationally televised game is their SuperBowl. The Lions always play well on Turkey Day. As bad as they have b...

Week 12

24

Kansas City at Seattle
Sunday 11/24 04:05 PM Eastern

4 units on Seattle +3.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Prior to last week, Kansas City was an amazing 7-1-1 against the spread but the trend may be reversing (as it often does) as they did not cover last week despite the win against...

Oakland at Arizona
Sunday 11/24 04:05 PM Eastern

4 units on Arizona +8 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

24

Detroit at Chicago
Sunday 11/24 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Detroit +5.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

How important is a good offensive line in this league? The Bears O-line is riddled with injuries and last week gave up seven sacks on way to a paltry 220-yard offensive performa...

24

St. Louis at Washington
Sunday 11/24 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Washington +4.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Nothing good can come out of the quarterback change in St. Louis this week. Despite what they may be saying publicly, this team wants Bulger taking the snaps. With Bulger, this ...

24

Tennessee at Baltimore
Sunday 11/24 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Baltimore +1.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

The Titans are riding a five game winning streak and I think it is about to end. Baltimore has lost three out of four, but all three losses were against teams playing very well ...

17

Denver at Seattle
Sunday 11/17 04:15 PM Eastern

4 units on Seattle +5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

17

San Francisco at San Diego
Sunday 11/17 04:05 PM Eastern

4 units on San Diego +2.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

While San Diego has lost two straight, last week’s could have easily gone either way as they let a 24-14 lead slip away – a very un-Schottenheimer-like performance. ...

17

Dallas at Indianapolis
Sunday 11/17 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Dallas +7 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Indianapolis is coming off a shocker win against Philadelphia. The Cowboys are coming off three straight losses. Does that mean the Colts deserve to be a 7 point favorite? No wa...

10

Houston at Tennessee
Sunday 11/10 04:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Houston +9.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Don’t get me wrong – the Titans are the better team. But 9.5 points is a whole lot to lay for a team that has one of the worst defenses in the league (especially aga...

10

New Orleans at Carolina
Sunday 11/10 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Carolina +4.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Who will show up for this one? The Panthers team that started 3-0 or the one that has since gone 0-5? With Rodney Peete back at QB, I’m betting we will see something close...

10

New York at Minnesota
Sunday 11/10 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Minnesota +1 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Another classic example of the linesmakers and public overreacting to the prior week’s results. The betting public easily remembers New York’s impressive win over Ja...

Sunday 11/10 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on San Diego +6 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

03

Jacksonville at New York
Sunday 11/03 08:30 PM Eastern

4 units on Jacksonville +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

After a great start (3-1, 26 points per game), the Jags have dropped three straight. The last loss was a humiliating defeat at the hands of the expansion Houston Texans. Anyone ...

St. Louis at Arizona
Sunday 11/03 04:15 PM Eastern

4 units on Arizona +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

After an 0-5 start, the Rams have won two straight while ‘Zona has won three out of their last four. The Rams have looked good the last two games but the wins have come a...

Washington at Seattle
Sunday 11/03 04:15 PM Eastern

4 units on Washington +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

03

Dallas at Detroit
Sunday 11/03 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Dallas +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Sunday 11/03 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Chicago +6.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Denver +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

I bet you all thought Wunderdog was a Bronco-hater, having gone against them three of the past four weeks (going 2-0-1 with those selections). Alas, I like them this week as a d...

Chicago at Minnesota
Sunday 10/27 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Chicago +1 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Oakland at Kansas City
Sunday 10/27 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Kansas City +2.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Can you say score-fest? I can’t remember an over/under this high (56) since the good ole days of the Greatest Show on Turf in 1999. The league’s top two offenses col...

Pittsburgh at Baltimore
Sunday 10/27 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Baltimore +2.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Indianapolis +4.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

San Diego at Oakland
Sunday 10/20 04:05 PM Eastern

4 units on San Diego +7 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Bloated spread.   The Raiders are coming off a stunning loss to the then 0-5 Rams with a 3rdstring quarterback. Their confidence took a major hit. Don't expect that sting...

Carolina at Atlanta
Sunday 10/20 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Carolina +5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

How much bad luck can one team have? Carolina has lost three straight after leading with 5 minutes to go in all three games. A missed 24-yard field goal here, a tipped pass for ...

4 units on Kansas City +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Miami +3.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Carolina +2 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Monday 10/07 09:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Green Bay +1.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Philadelphia at Jacksonville
Sunday 10/06 04:15 PM Eastern

4 units on Jacksonville +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Sunday 10/06 04:15 PM Eastern

4 units on St. Louis +7 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Atlanta +2 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Denver at Baltimore
Monday 09/30 09:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Baltimore +7 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Sunday 09/29 04:15 PM Eastern

4 units on San Diego +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

The match up of the unbeatens features the home team getting 3 points (equivalent to the lines-makers making NE a 6 point favorite on a neutral site). Think that has SD players ...

Tampa Bay at Cincinnati
Sunday 09/29 04:05 PM Eastern

4 units on Cincinnati +7 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Tampa is tired and overconfident after getting up for a big Monday night game vs. St. Louis. They will be taking Cincinnati lightly. Look for Cinci to bounce back after three st...

Sunday 09/29 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Chicago +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Will these guys ever get any respect? Chicago was one play away from being 3-0, losing last week to a very good New Orleans team. The simply let down after breezing to an e...

Miami at Kansas City
Sunday 09/29 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Kansas City +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

KC almost beat New England last week. They are a solid team. Home dogs that allowed 40+ points last week are a great bet (think KC's D is working hard this week?). Miami du...

New Orleans at Detroit
Sunday 09/29 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Detroit +7.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Carolina +6 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Thursday 08/29 08:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Buffalo +3.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)
