The McNeil and Spiegel Showpot had a bounceback week last week nearly tripling their account balance after parlaying the Bears/Lions over and the Colts giving 9 in Jacksonville. Can they win big again? If they want to get to Vegas they better. Vote below for your favorite of the weekly submissions to Who Do You Love:
New England +1.5 at Cincinnati
The Patriots are figuring things out as you saw last week in Atlanta while the Bengals haven’t lived up to expectations quite yet. I like Tom Brady to go on the road and pick up a victory.
Saints -1 at Chicago
I know the past isn’t my friend on this but I don’t care. Drew Brees and that offense will shred this defense that has been a disappointment to date. I love New Orleans.
Cincinnati vs. New England – Over 45.5
Vince Wilfork out means the Bengals are going to run the ball at will. Add that to the Patriots figuring their stuff out on offense and I like a bunch of points in this one. Give me the over.
Seattle -3 at Indy
The Seahawks damn well might be the most complete team in the league. Indianapolis can play horribly and not look like they belong on the same field. Russell Wilson and company get things going with another strong road win in this one.
Ohio State -7 at Northwestern
NU can be as fired up as they’ll ever be but Ohio State is a different beast coming to Evanston on Saturday night. Bigger, faster, stronger…this is going to be a long night for the Go Cats. I love the Buckeyes
Bears vs. Saints – Over 48.5
The Bears might not win but they’ll put points on the board. As will Drew Brees and his fine arsenal of weapons. I love this game to go way over.
Saints -1 at Bears
Who stops Jimmy Graham? Seriously. No pass rush for the Bears either, Brees picks them apart. It might be a close game but the Bears aren’t stopping Brees and company enough to win.
Titans +3 vs. Chiefs
I love home dogs and the Titans are yet to lose against the spread this season. Seems like a nice combination to me.
Saints -1 at Bears
Anything ever been more overrated than Bear weather? Did they not crap themselves in the 80’s to the 49ers in it? Did the good Bucs teams of the late 90’s/early 2000’s never win up here? I don’t care how rainy it might get, the Bears defense hasn’t been good this year. The best offense in the NFC is bad news coming to town for the beloved.
Chiefs -3 at Tennessee
Two favorites, I know. But Jake Locker has been better than I ever thought he’d be this season and he’ll be missed significantly in Tennessee. The Chiefs keep things going with a big win in this one.
