A perfect debut for Evan Roberts in the new WFAN Afternoons picks format came quickly crashing down, as he only hit the over/under last week in a game Browns fans, Eagles fans, and most others who watched it would love to forget.
This week, Evan and Big Mac are going head to head on Ev’s dog, and this time, it’s the opposite of an under-double, as Evan is going favorite-over?
First, the current standings (last week in parenthesis):
Evan: 19-14 (1-2, just the O/U)
Mac: 12-16-1 (L)
Loogy: 1-1 (W)
FAVORITE – Cowboys (-2.5) vs. Washington: “Dallas is now a more competent team with Andy Dalton, and I love them on Thanksgiving. I know the whole division is laid out, and how the Giants will be in first place, but I was encouraged by what I saw last week from Dallas.”
UNDERDOG – Jets (+7) vs. Dolphins: “I don’t think I’ve touched the Jets all year – but if they’re going to win a game, I’ve thought all year the game they’d win is the Dolphins. Divisional game, the rivalry is weird as hell, and let’s face it: the Jets have looked like a more competent football team lately. They’ll probably find some dumb way to lose, but they’re gonna make it close. For every Jets fan looking to tank, I think you’re going to sweat this one out.”
OVER/UNDER – Dallas/Washington OVER 46.5: “I think we’ll see a lot of points. The Dallas defense is still overall pathetic.”
C-MAC – Dolphins (-7) at Jets: “I’m going back to the well that cost me last week. Tua gets benched last week, but he comes back and has the best game of his NFL career – two rushing, two throwing, big time game for the Dolphins and they wipe the floor with the lousy Jets.”
LOOGY – Titans (+3) at Colts: “Last time they played, the Titans got smacked around. Division rivals, and this time, the Titans want all the smoke. Coming off a big win over the Ravens, I’ll take the points.”
Listen below for the full predictions, and as always, be ready to call in Monday to give Evan, C-Mac, and Loogy some love (or hell) for their picks!
