The first week of the new format on picks worked out well for Evan Roberts, who went 3-0 by picking a winning favorite, a winning underdog, and the correct side of an over/under! C-Mac’s pick also hit while Loogy’s didn’t, but hey, can’t win ‘em all.
They’re going to try this week though, and Evan is once again pulling the under double with the dog and the total, while Loogy and Mac are on the same trail but opposite sides.
First, the current standings, including Evan and Chris’ previous runs:
Evan: 18-12 (3-0)
Mac: 12-15-1 (1-0)
Favorite – Kansas City (-8) at Las Vegas: “I’m not doing this because the entire Raiders defense is in COVID protocol; I’m doing it because Jon Gruden decided he was going to rise the bus around Arrowhead. It’s dumb, but the Chiefs are using it as motivation. This offense will click, it will work, and I don’t care if everybody’s out of protocol, I think Kansas City will win big. I love the revenge factor.”
Underdog – Philadelphia (+3) at Cleveland: “I want to be wrong about this, but I think the Eagles are going to bounce back. They didn’t turn the ball over last week, and I don’t trust the Browns. I liked the number better at 3.5, but I think the Eagles will win outright, and that’s not good for the NFC East. I still think the Eagles will figure it out, and this is the kind of game to do it.”
Over/Under – Philly/Cleveland UNDER 47.5: “It worked for me last week in the Cleveland game. I like the under. I like a low-scoring, sloppy game.”
Carolina (+2.5) vs. Detroit: “I don’t care if Kevin Costner is starting at quarterback for the Panthers, the Lions should never be favored against anybody! No Swift, no Golladay, no Amendola…the Panthers have been playing tough all year long, and anytime you’re getting points at home, I like it.”
Miami (-3.5) at Denver: “I’ve been riding this team, and when I look at this team, I see where my Giants are going to be next year! Flores has them playing well, and I thought it was a mistake to go to Tua, but I was wrong; they’ve hit another level, and this defense is ferocious and opportunistic. Miami is going to go into Denver and take care of business.”
Listen below for the full predictions, and as always, be ready to call in Monday to give the crew love (or hell) for their picks!
