Boomer & Gio's NFL Picks: 2020 Week 12

By WFAN Sports Radio 101.9 FM/66AM New York

Gio extended his lead in the WFAN Mornings NFL picks race last week, picking up a game on Jerry and The Booms thanks to New Orleans (who dat?) covering with Taysom Hill running the show…guess he doesn’t regret that pick after all?

This week, it’s a Football Wednesday…and the boys are picking the one Turkey Day game that ISN’T a sure thing and/or the Cowboys? Weird, but hey, it’s 2020, do you. Three of the five picks are the same, so Jerry and Boomer need an undefeated team to stay that way (and win by a touchdown) and a winless team win (or stay within a TD) to pick up some ground on Gio.

First, the current standings (last week in parenthesis):
Gio: 29-26 (3-2)   
Boomer: 24-31 (2-3)
Jerry: 22-33 (2-3)
(Al went 0-5…so that’s 15-40 overall and 0-11 on parlays)

And now, Week 12 picks from B&G (and J), brought to you by, Solo Stove, and Prop Swap:

GAME 1: Ravens at Steelers (-5)
Gio: Ravens
Jerry: Steelers

Gio’s take: “Man, this game opened up at 3 and crept up because of COVID…I’m assuming they play, and this is a big spread. I know how bad Baltimore has been, but I think the Ravens will keep it close. The Steelers will win, but anything can happen.”

GAME 2: Titans at Colts (-3.5)
Gio: Titans
Boomer: Titans
Jerry: Titans

Boomer’s take: “I’ll take the Titans and the points…I think the Colts win, but I can see this as a three-point game.”

GAME 3: Chiefs at Buccaneers (+3.5)

Gio’s take: “After what I’ve seen from Tom Brady, going head to head here with Patrick Mahomes, I can’t see this one being that close. Kansas City has given their fans a lot of agita this year, but I love the Chiefs in this game.”

GAME 4: Dolphins at Jets (+7)

Gio’s take: “I know we don’t know who the quarterback is right now, but just like Jerry takes the Cowboys every time, I will take the team the Jets are playing every time. Give me a Tua bounce-back against the Jets in a rout!”

GAME 5: Giants at Bengals (+5.5)
Boomer: Giants
Jerry: Giants

Jerry’s take: “Write it down: Nov. 28, 2020 – the one day all year the Jets and Giants win on the same day! Giants in a rout.”

Listen below for the full predictions, and as always, check out more on-demand audio from WFAN's morning show, and be ready to call in Monday to give the gang love (or hell) for their picks!
