Money Where My Mouth Is: Three Picks For Week Eight

| October 29th, 2015

Screen Shot 2015-09-21 at 3.01.04 PM

Three picks last week. Rams beat the Browns easily. Patriots barely scraped by the 28.5 number. Colts decided to spot the Saints about 70 points. Mediocre week but I knew it was coming. This week, I rebound.

GREEN BAY PACKERS UNDER 24 AT DENVER

Packers haven’t been convincing offensively in a month and the Broncos are one of the better defenses in the game. What scares me about this bet? I could very easily see Peyton Manning throwing points the other way. (I can’t believe that’s where we are with Manning.) I’m betting on Gary Kubiak committing to the run game, keeping Rodgers on the bench and still losing 20-17.

CHICAGO BEARS +1 OVER MINNESOTA

Hot hand.

The Bears have been a covering machine, even if I had an early line and pushed with them two weeks ago. Having seen enough of the Vikings I’m simply not that impressed. Love Cutler’s record against Minnesota, especially at home.

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS OVER 27 VS. NYG

Giants last three opponents were quarterbacked by Colin Kaepernick, Sam Bradford and Matt Cassel and they surrendered 27-27-20 points. Drew Brees is hot right now and I don’t think the Giants defense can withstand this onslaught.

Season Record: 11-8-2

  • The GP

    BM fought in the locker room with Devin Smith.

    What’s the over/under the guy ends up living in the back of a Toyota Tercel in a few years, ala Terrell Owens?

    • BearDown100393

      Parking lot. Palace Auburn Hills. Rodman. Heavy.

    • I say Ford Fiesta. You can take the seats out of the back. More sleeping room.

  • The GP
  • Pissed Off

    I will take the Packers on the over. I’m not sure it matters how good the Bronco’s D is. If the Broncos score 20 points (which I think they will) the Packers will score at least 24 and win the game.

    Weird things happen when the Vikes play in Chicago. Game is usually tight and there are a few fluke plays that cause it to be that way one way or the other. Though I still think this team overall is not that great, the Bears always do well at home against the vikes and so for one more week I will say the bears win and cover. Maybe Fox is starting to rub off on the bears and implement his ways. That can only be a good thing for this team going forward and I look forward to seeing that continue this week and beyond.

    This one I’ll take the under. The saints have been putting up some points in the past weeks but this is where a mediocre team shows it’s stripes. I don’t think Brees is as hot as you think. Saints wont score 27 and will lose.

    • BillW

      It’s hard to see the Packers scoring less than 24 against anyone unless the other team controls the clock in a lopsided manner (35 40 minutes). Not sure Denver is up to that but I haven’t watched them – going just on what little I’ve read about Manning dropping off a lot this year.

      Probably going to the game Sunday so I’m hoping for a strong showing. But again – how do you stop AP (short of feeding him spoiled shrimp the night before)? Does anyone here feel he will rush for less than 150? It could conceivably be more like 200. I don’t think we’re ready defensively for someone like him yet.

      But I’m wrong more than I’m right when I project what will happen, so the Bears have that going for them.

      • DaBearsBlog

        They’ve scored 24 or less 2 of last 3 weeks.

        • BillW

          Thanks for correcting my ignorance. That’s the trouble with going on impressions versus facts. Did not realize that.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Lacy has left the reservation.

            Currently pounding the rock for the Pack is the guy that Angelo had at the top of the draft board, but drafted Dan LeFavour instead.

          • MB30SD

            Man that kid had moxy! What a pick!

            SMFH

        • Pissed Off

          Nobody wants the pack to lose more than me/us so I hope that trend continues, however I just think a big game vs a big opponent tends to get Rodgers going and I think they will need at least 24 to win and will get it if needed.

          • Irish Sweetness

            I don’t see how an anemic offense with a shot QB beats the Packers. They’ve been beating lesser teams with only their defense. Can’t bring half a team to play the Pack!

        • I agree. The Pack offensive juggernaut has stalled a bit. It’s not as efficient as usual, and some frustration is creeping into Rogers since the timing with banged up receivers simply isn’t there, and Fat Eddie is essentially benched.

          Starks filled in nicely, but he’s ailing now too.

          That’s not exactly the recipe the Pack want going into Mile High vs #1D after their bye.

        • Trac

          You know Bridgewater’s gonna go all pro on the Bears D. It’s gonna be a bad loss imo unless AP gets hurt.

      • Pissed Off

        AP can get it going in an instant but he can also be contained all day until he breaks off one 75 yarder and that changes everything. I think it’s inevitable he breaks off a big one to change momentum (at least) so we can’t be complacent even if we’ve held him to 30 yards or less by halftime. Fox does a great job of keeping the offense on the field and controlling clock which will be HUGE in this game. Less AP on the field the better. Gotta watch out for this Diggs character as well but BridgeH2O scares me none.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Just take the points on the Packers – Peyton can’t score against anyone, Clay & Co. win that one. Denver are very good against the pass against anyone not named Aaron Rogers.

      Don’t think the Saints are for real? They shot down the 6-1 Falcons. They’re at home. Eli has been woeful, the Giants can’t even run it.

      • Pissed Off

        I just got that feeling on the giants game. Might not be a basis for it but I just think NYG gets it done on both sides this week.

        • Irish Sweetness

          I’m having reservations about the Saints myself. I don’t want my accumulator riding on the Saints when Eli and Odell decide to go off on one.

          In fact, prudence wins out – just ARI – GB – CAR … 2/1. Don’t be greedy!

  • BillW

    Regarding the Fuller question (better at safety).

    Does anyone have an explanation or at least a theory as to why he succeeded early last year and not this year?

    It’s one thing when a guy like Shea clearly couldn’t do the job he was drafted to do, so you change positions and see if he is better there.

    But Kyle WAS a good corner last year. At least the first half. What changed?

    • The GP

      No he wasn’t. Go back and watch those games. Megatron nearly crushed the kid’s soul last year.

      He had all the same problems last year as he does today: he’s not a bump and run corner. He can’t turn his hips and refuses to look back for the ball.

      He’s a zone corner. Emery stood on the clean edge of his dickhead and was entranced by the kid who was “versatile” because VT moved him into a blitz safety at times.

      • Irish Sweetness

        That’s why I’d love to see him in the slot or at safety. Keep it all in front of him.

        • MB30SD

          might as well try meboy!

          Btw, do you know the tv show Shaun the Sheep (it’s a UK product)? I found it on Amazon Prime and my kids love it.

          • MikeBrownhadaPosse

            That theme song is catchy as fuck.

          • MB30SD

            Does S like it?! Nice!

            How’s things my maings? Sorry been crushed at work, been meaning to shoot you a text to get the 411. Shoot me a sup.

        • Not sure Fuller has the body type to withstand playing safety. Could you see him coming up and tackling AP or Fat Eddie? He wouldn’t exactly be an enforcer. More of the Conte “hang on for dear life” type of S.

      • BillW

        Therein lies the answer? 4-3 vs 3-4? At least in part.

      • That’s the way I see it. He’s a cover-2 corner who plays better with his eyes towards the QB. That’s one of the benefits of a corner-2. All eyes on the QB.

        As great as Peanut was, seeing him cover guys like Steve Smith one-on-one was tragic. That’s why they brought in Jennings, smaller cover guys.

        I guess the Bears could put Fuller in zone most of the time, with a safety over him, and play man on the other side, but I’m guessing that might restrict Fangio more than he likes.

        I’d try that out first though. Mix in some man-to-man (on non critical downs) and blitzes to mix it up, but not many.

    • Irish Sweetness

      The first game or two was good maybe.

    • AlbertInTucson

      He got a bit dinged up.

      Sometimes that takes some the starch out of a guy.

    • DocNitty Ellipsoids Ornamental

      He played a zone last year and is playing more man to man this year. Scouting report on him had him excelling in a zone like the cover two but not in man to man (if I remember right)

      • BillW

        Thanks.

        We praised Gase for calling plays based on what he has versus what he might wish he had. Sounds like maybe Fangio is not? again, it might just be that there is no such thing as a pure zone 3-4? I’m literally ignorant on this subject but very curious.

        • Irish Sweetness

          Fangio better start dialling up some blitzes.

  • Irish Sweetness

    (20-11)

    I’m feeling the Saints at home too. Hope we can beat the Vikes but wouldn’t put money on us stopping AP. Atlanta over the Bucs at home has a banana-skin feel to it – anyone any thoughts on that? The Falcons only put up 10 points on the Titans last week, but they’re a lot better at home.

    4-0 last week, my four for this week:

    NO over the Giants, ARI over Cleveland , GB over Broncs , CAR over Indy. odds: 4/1

    Might wuss out on the Saints though:

    ARI over Cleveland , GB over Broncs , CAR over Indy. odds: 2/1

    • Sactowns#1

      Not touching tonight’s game eh? It’s probably the only thing that will make it interesting for me. Come on back door cover! I like the Over in Jets v Raiders. Didn’t realize Chiefs V Lions was in London so I like the Lions at +4.5 even more now. Panthers will win but I don’t like the -7 so I’ll stay away. Cards are a different team on the road so I don’t like em. I do like the Saints at home. Wish that 3.5 was 3.0 but what are you gonna do? And I hate Green Bay so idk if I can stomach putting money on them. And while the Broncos haven’t played any high powered offesnes they have only allowed 33 points at home in two games combined. Last year they gave up an average of 20 points at home and only gave up more than 24 ONE time. That’s kinda crazy. So I’d say the GB under is a solid bet.
      Irish- how does sports gambling work in Thailand?

      • Irish Sweetness

        Liked the Jets line last week, that was good, but Miami are away in the toughest place to win. Toss-up.

        Detroit firing their OC might have the same effect Philbin’s firing brought. Players playing for themselves. Another toss-up though.

        • Sactowns#1

          Miami doesn’t have to win. They just have to not lose by more than 8 pts.

          • Irish Sweetness

            When you’re outclassed, that’s hard to do.

  • TheBigCheesy

    Aren’t the Bears 2-3-1 ATS this year? That’s not exactly a “covering machine”… I guess 2-0-1 over the last three is a “hot hand”? Green Bay failed to cover in week 6 for the 1st time all season. Are they cold now?

    • DaBearsBlog

      Well they covered their last three games so no those numbers are wrong. They are 3-1 against spread when Cutler plays four quarters.

      • TheBigCheesy

        ahhh “when cutler plays 4 quarters”.

        He left that AZ game down 14 points and the Seahawks game was a 26 pointer…Vegas only gives a healthy cutler a 3-4 point boost.

        Even if you want to throw those games out, which really you can’t, Minnesota has covered 5 in a row. So you’re not really playing the hot hand, you’re going up against it.

        • Irish Sweetness

          Yeah, there are a lot more attractive games around. Minny beat Detroit twice already this season, a team that beat us. Can’t see how we stop AP unless Fox goes all-out to do so. The Niners held AP to 30 yards when they beat Minny in week one.

          • DocNitty Ellipsoids Ornamental

            True but he only had like 10 carries that game.

        • DaBearsBlog

          Bears have covered three straight. How are they not a hot hand?

          • TheBigCheesy

            If the Bears are a hot hand, then the Vikings are scalding.

            And if part your rationale for playing the Bears is that they are “a hot hand”, then ignoring the fact that the Vikings are THE hot hand between the two teams is…. incredible.

            I’m just going to assume that you didn’t realize that the Vikings had covered 5 in a row, which is fine…i would never expect you to know that. But now having learned that, i’d like to think you might retract that part of your statement if given the opportunity.

          • MikeBrownhadaPosse

            But…they’re the Vikings.

          • TheBigCheesy

            Very true!

            Counterpoint: The Bears are…..the Bears 🙁

          • Irish Sweetness

            1. They can’t stop the run.

            2. The runner is AP.

            3. Our backup Center is injured.

            4. Minny beat Detroit twice already.

            Taking a one point spread is weird too, since teams can’t really finish in a tie, and the price is better straight up. Not saying we won’t win, but there’s nothing about this matchup that is attractive for the Bears.

        • DaBearsBlog

          And they recovered two fumbles before the end of the half and lot yardage.

          Beara were also trailing by 11 with four minutes remaining in KC.

    • Irish Sweetness

      I can’t see the Broncos running it against the Packers – they can’t run it against anyone else. Peyton is toast, so the passing game is dead. Packers should cover three points easily, minimum of 2 passing TDs, 1 rushing. Maybe 1 on DST. At least 2 FGs. 27 point minimum as the blitzes get punished.

      • Sactowns#1

        I’m not buying what youre selling Irish. Another stat- Denver is 12-5 in prime time and 6-2 on Sunday night since old man Manning came to town.

        • TheBigCheesy

          12-5 on prime time is nothing special considering their overall winning percentage with manning is even higher than that.

          • Sactowns#1

            Contrast that with Dalton who has a decent win percentage but a crummy prime time record. All those different factors make me like the Broncos this week.

          • willbest

            Dalton makes you like the Broncos? What glue are you sniffing and can I have some?

          • Sactowns#1

            Cheeses point was “his primetime record is nothing special compared to his regular record” my point was “Lots of guys have a good regular record and a crummy primetime record, like Dalton”
            Try to keep up Gramps

        • Irish Sweetness

          I’m not big on historical stats, Sac. Judge the team as is. Manning is not the Manning of old, and it’s not a phase he’s going through. GB have an offense, defense and the highest rated QB in history, in his prime. It’s probably the lock of the week for me. The air density will suit Rogers more than Manning, who can’t get it downfield in a hurry. The Broncos cannot go undefeated with Manning at QB, and the first loss comes on Sunday.

      • TheBigCheesy

        I dunno I kind of like jeff a under bet here. I think the packers have a good chance to win, but it has nothing to do with punishing the blitz (although that’s what Rodgers normally does) and everything to do with Rodgers not throwing a pick-six… Which is basically how Denver has won every single game this year.

        • Irish Sweetness

          This is it. They have top force QBs into making mistakes because they have no offense themselves. Rogers doesn’t make mistakes.

  • The GP

    95% of New Jersey voters voted in favor of a resolution making it illegal to box-pen pigs and force feed them, a cruel practice where the pig is effectively crated and cannot move and screams most of it’s life in pain.

    Christie vetoed it because he takes big checks from pig farmers who are very powerful in Iowa.

    I’d like box pen Christie’s fat face.

      Sounds like Ole Pappy ‘ s got a dilemma.

      One would think a legislative override would be trivial with that kind of popular backing.

  • Sactowns#1

    Glad to see Rolle out there practicing.

    • Ready to Rock and Rolle!

      He might not be Woodson, but there’s a lot to be said to being able to put the secondary in the right position more often than not.

  • Here’s the stat that has me worried about the Bears on Sunday.
    MIN has run 40% of its runs right up the middle, where they average 4.1 ypc (13th in the NFL).

    The Bears are 28th defending such runs, giving up around 5.5 ypc.
    AP right up the middle scares the shit out of me.

    • TheBigCheesy

      AP right and AP left is pretty scary, too. Has been for 8 years.

    • At least AP won’t get those long TD runs up the middle.

      Plus, I kinda wanna see Goldman tackle AP. Goldman is 6’6 330 man-muscle. Good rookie test.

    • Irish Sweetness

      He’ll gash us, no doubt. And with Grasu out, we’d be lucky to get a W here. Not to worry, a top pass rusher is more likely to be drafted in that case.

    Hey guys!! This just in…

    FUCK Minnesota, FUCK teddyB, and FUUUUCK AP!!! Child beating cunt.

    How ’bout dem apples bitches!?

    • We’re gonna use a switch on them like AP with his kid! (too soon?)

      • MB30SD

        Ouch (literally)

        You know, before I had kids this kind of stuff would get the exact same response from me. I’d think, dude, that’s fucked up, then make a joke about it. And I totally get it and am not saying anything about your response because it’s normal and I did it all the time too.

        Just shocks me sometimes how different my outlook is not that I have my own babies. I just picture his son and my son and I get so angry. I get it’s generational and cultural (the south), but I could never hurt my kids like that. I’ve never hit, nor would I ever even consider it as an option no matter how angry I’ve gotten at them, and trust me, I’ve lost it. I’ve really yelled at my kids (and I have a booming voice when I’m angry) 3 times. Their eyes get huge then they start crying because they are truly scared. Each of the 3 times, I’ve had to leave the room to cry because it hurt me just to scare them like that, never mind beat them till they are bleeding.

        Just can’t fathom it. He’s a cunt. fuck him.

        • Yeah, my friends tell me the same thing. I guess it goes with being a Papa.
          My bro in law actually dumped his son’s Kobe jerseys and posters once all that stuff went down with him, so abuse is def out of the question.

          I think spanking kids in general is a controversial issue, and I wonder if the next generation will look on how we were raised as cruel?

          My uncle always used to have the belt hanging on the door. Just there looming for us 3 boys when we got out of hand. It was a good reminder to not screw around lol

          He did use it on us from time to time, but 3 boys can get a bit out of hand, and generally he was a really chill guy.

          Is a belt now considered cruel and unusual? Dunno anymore.

          • DocNitty Ellipsoids Ornamental

            These days you can busted for spanking. When I was a kid my mom would spank us with a wooden spoon. She always did my brother first because he was older. But he would just laugh and laugh and she’d spank harder and he’d laugh until the wooden spoon was broken. Meanwhile I’d be in the corner bawling with fear. Luckily, the spoon was usually broken by the time it got to me.

            I also remember getting my mouth washed out with soap. I’m pretty sure that’s frowned on these days too, and rightfully so.

          • MB30SD

            DOC!!! You and me brother. Soulmates. hahahaha, wrote the above before I read down. Classic.

          • BillW

            In my old guy opinion I’d say it’s close. I thought any kind of a “weapon” per se was going too far. A quick smack on the rear was the most I’d do and more for the shock than to inflict pain.

            I mean think about it – a child sees a parent willingly using a weapon to inflict pain. That at best will make them afraid of you. And at worst mistrust you – and there will be a day when you’ll wish you had that trust.

            Times have changed. Respect used to be commanded by parents. Maybe in some ways that was better. Certainly easier than earning it.

          • MB30SD

            my mom used to use a wooden spoon. Hurt like hell till we hit about 12, then we’d just laugh our asses off, which made her even more angry. Man I loved/still love that woman.

            My dad only had to hit us once… with an elephant skin belt. From then on, all he had to do was take that bad boy out, double it over and crack it once. ALL grabassing would IMMEDIATELY cease.

          • Irish Sweetness

            How many did she break? Mine was always breaking them off counters. The one I couldn’t figure out was the plate-smashing. There would be a stack of plates, just been washed and dried, and for some reason she thought that lifting them up and crashing them down would have some effect on me.

            Sticks and belts work far better when conditioning responses.

          • Irish Sweetness

            If the police ever called to our door it meant the option of a stick or a belt. In fairness to my old man, if the fuzz get involved, then the game gets stepped up.

        down vote will.

        …I’m sorry I’m not sorry.

  • I think the Bears will come out firing, balls out. I think that bitter loss before the bye left a really bad taste in their mouth, and they’ll be extra motivated at home vs a div opponents everyone picks over them.

    I know Long was really pissed at himself, and I think a lot of the Bears felt disgusted at how they played last game. Supposedly, many didn’t take off right away for the bye, but went back and watched tape of the game, which is an awesome sign.

    Last year, this type of loss would’ve been shrugged off. But this squad seems to thrive off it.

    Sometimes losing before the bye focuses a team more, keeps them from being complacent, esp that type of loss that could’ve gotten the Bears to .500 and in the wildcard mix.

    In short.

    Queens. Muerto.

            It’s ambiguous.

            You could say: “Chicago are on the 4 yard line…” if you’re referring to the Chicago Bears. Bears = plural.

            You could say: “Chicago is on the 4 yard line…” if you’re referring to the city, but of course cities don’t play football, teams do.

      I assume jefe was being sarcastic. Gambling adds no value to an economy, and arguably to a society. Other than the freedom to do so *is* of value in the latter case.

      • NewBearInTown

        Chicago is the counterpoint to that. We’ve allowed in casinos more than once to boost revenue – and the revenue boost is fairly predictable. The concern is always the “element” that legalized gambling attracts. And that is a legitimate concern.

        For every family taking a fun vacation to Vegas, there’s somebody who blew his rent check at the craps table.

            I’m not a gambler. Just when I go to Vegas, and sometimes when I play No Limit Poker, but that’s not often.

          • Irish Sweetness

            Gambling is true freedom. When The Man tells you that you can’t invest your money as you so desire – and that’s what it is, investment – then it’s not a free country. You’re gambling when you buy shares, take out a mortgage – they’re investments that can go down as well as up.

          Alcohol is legal, and if the State is fine with people drinking poison, then they should allow gamblers the same freedoms with the responsibilities attached. Of course it’s always been laughable that adverts ask alcoholics to drink responsibly.

        You tax it, then it’s instant revenue that didn’t exist before.

  • Vernon Davis might be on the trade block. Trade a money-grubbing Bennett for Davis straight up?

    • The GP

      I think Davis’ wheels fell off

      • Maybe, but he had 4.4 wheels.

        He’s probably still as fast as Bennett, but without being Bennett.

        • willbest

          They can cut Bennett after this year and not owe him anything. He is better than Davis this year, and you aren’t keeping Davis for the future. Doesn’t make sense.

          • Why aren’t we keeping Davis for the future? I’d keep him for the future. I don’t think he’s as done as some think. It just so happens he has Kap throwing to him. 9ers also like running it.

            It’s like Graham on the Hawks. He didn’t suddenly suck. It’s the scheme and game script.

            Bennett has already been talking about holding out. Ship him off.

            If Gase decides that Davis might be an FA next year, then ship Bennett off next year for a draft pick and pick up Davis.

            Bennett is good, but wildly inconsistent and Cutty always throws INTs going to him.

            Cut bait, I say.

      That’s a beautiful car.

  • Pats will take away Miller and force Tannenhill to beat them.
    I think on O they’ll attack the Fins much like they attacked the Jets last week through the uptempo short pass.
    Maybe later they put in the closer Blount to grind it out.

    • The GP

      The game is at Foxboro. It’s cold there.

      Miami will fold.

    • Miller 15 yd rushes.
      Tannenhill 2 INTs and junk yds.
      Gronk, Lewis and Edleman balling.
      Blount grinded it out.

      Ho-hum.

    Pats are amazing. Can’t see any team hanging with them. CIN might be the most well-rounded team but Dalton could cough up a fur-ball in the post-season. The Cheese? Rodgers gives them a puncher’s chance but otherwise they’re just not the machine NE is.

    Oddly, maybe the team with the best chance of beating NE might be PIT provided they can get Big Ben healthy. But who knows if PIT even makes the post-season. They look like a WC at best.

    Or heck, maybe CAR with their defense.

    • willbest

      I think the Jets might be able to take them at Metlife, but nobody is going to Foxborough and beating them in Jan

      • Irish Sweetness

        47-4 at home after tonight.

        The Fins are the Fins.

        Big Ben & Co. will take it to the Pats. Ben has a terrible record coming back from injury, so the Bengals game could be a loss – but they’ll rock n roll when he’s healthy.

  • I can’t believe Artoo started the Fin’s D in FF. Who the heck starts a D against the Pat AT NE?

    Ender got extremely lucky with junk time yds. I think the Fins had 40 yds total in the first half. Miller fell into the endzone on 15 yds rushing and Tannenhill got a bunch of junk yards when the Pats were way up.

    Naturally, the NE O fed. Brady, Gronk, Edelman, Lewis and Blount.
