Kansas City @ Oakland (+7)

  Meat, BMac, TBuck, Jer

  The Kid, Bode

Bode:   Oakland’s been doing fine against the spread so ride them at home.

Meat:  Oakland’s a very good team at 0 – 10.  A few plays here and there and they’d easily be 1 – 9.

TBuck:  Oakland’s rush D is so porous.  How porous is it!?!  Real porous!

Consensus:  

 

Cleveland (+3) @ Atlanta

  Meat, BMac, TBuck, Jer

  Bode, The Kid

BMac:  Wrong team is favored in this one.  Browns o-line should push around Atlanta’s weak front 7.

The Kid:  All the injuries have caught up with the Cardiac Kids.

Jer:  Atlanta shouldn’t be giving points to anyone.  Brownies need this to keep playoff hopes alive.

Consensus:  

 

Tennessee (+10.5) @ Philadelphia

  Meat, Bode, TBuck

  BMac, Jer, The KId

The Kid:  Tennessee coming off Monday Night Football and they suck.

Meat:  Signs of life against Pittsburgh shows Titans can keep it close enough to keep Sanch-joke from covering the big spread.

TBuck:  Philly really only has one impressive win this season – all the way back in week 2.  They shouldn’t be giving double digits here.

Consensus:  

 

Detroit (+7) @ New England

  BMac, Jer, The Kid

   Meat, Bode, TBuck

BMac:  Too many points to give a Lion’s team whose defense keeps it in every game.

Jer:  Pats are due for a regression and Detroit keeps finding ways to win, or at least keep things close.

Meat:  As good as the Lions have looked, New England has easily looked a touchdown better at home.

Consensus:  

 

Green Bay @ Minnesota (+9.5)

  Meat, Bode, BMac, TBuck

   The Kid, Jer

Bode:  MIN at home means nothing against the rolling Pack.

Jer:  Packers in same boat as the Pats: can’t keep up that output.  I’ll take the points at home.

Meat:  Green Bay covers by a mile.  A fucking mile.

Consensus:  

 

Jacksonville (+13.5) @ Indianapolis

  BIG PLAY LOCK

TBuck:  “Jacksonville is standing on the tracks and the train’s about to come through…buttheads.” – Rube Baker

BMac:  Blowout city in Indy.

Bode:  Indy not giving enough points at home.

Consensus:  

 

Cincinnati (+2) @ Houston

  BIG PLAY LOCK

BMac:  Can’t trust Andy Dalton to win two straight on the road, especially with how good Houston’s D looks now that Clowney is back.

Meat:  If Houston’s D made Cleveland look that pedestrian, imagine what they’ll do to Dalton?

TBuck:  Cincy is too Jekyl and Hyde this year to get a good read on.  Also, there’s a good chance Dalton’s obituary will have JJ Watt’s name mentioned in it.

Consensus:  

 

New York Jets (+4.5) @ Buffalo

  BMac, TBuck, Jer

  Meat, Bode, The Kid

Jer:  Think Buffalo wins this, but it’ll be a super tight game.  Stay away.

The Kid:  Jets lose by forfeit as an avalanche engulfs the team bus.

Meat:  Snow doubt about this one, as there’s snow way Buffalo loses to the Jokes.

Consensus:  

 

Tampa Bay (+6) @ Chicago

  TBuck

  Meat, Bode, Jer, The Kid, BMac

Bode:  Cutler throws 5 TD’s and 4 INT’s and Bears win by 7.

TBuck:  Tampa’s been a tough out on the road this year.  May not a win but they should keep Chicago from covering.

Jer:  Did Chicago right the ship?  We’ll see.  Definitely taking the home favorite if the line stays under a TD.

Consensus:  image

 

Arizona (+6.5) @ Seattle

  Meat, Bode, Jer

  BMac, TBuck, The Kid

BMac:  Tough spot for Stanton on the road here.

TBuck:  This line screams Arizona.  Seattle should not be giving this many points to them, so, in Vegas logic, all that points to taking Seattle.

Jer:  Home field not what it used to be for Seattle and Zona keeps getting it done.

Consensu:  

 

Saint Louis (+5.5) @ San Diego

  Meat, TBuck

  Bode, Jer, The Kid, BMac

Bode:  St. Louis overachieved against Denver, so taking the home team.

Meat:  San Diego can’t win a meaningful game and certainly won’t against the sneaky Rams.

The Kid:  San Diego is 0 and 5 against the spread.  They’re due.

Consensus:  

 

Miami (+7) @ Denver

  Bode, TBuck, The Kid

  Meat, BMac, Jer

TBuck:  Miami’s defense is good and they eat up some clock on offense.  Look for the cover.

Meat:  If you really think Peyton’s not going to go gorillas after last week you’re stoopid.

Jer:  Denver looking for revenge after the embarrassing loss, though I’d take Miami if this line goes up.

Consensus:  

 

Redskins (+8.5) @ San Francisco

  Bode, TBuck, The Kid

  Meat, BMac, Jer

TBuck:  Washington due for a cover and I still can’t trust San Fran giving up this many points.

BMac:  Washington is a mess right now.

Meat:  Washington is so bad right now even Jim Harbaugh can cover that spread.

Consensus:  

 

Dallas (+3.5) @ New York Giants

  Meat, Bode, BMac, TBuck, Jer

  The Kid

The Kid:  Wouldn’t be surprised if the Giants win outright and Dallas is 0 – 5 against the spread.

Jer:  Dallas is off the bye and the better team by a lot.  They’ll win outright.

TBuck:  See: Manning, Eli; week 11.

Consensus:  

 

Baltimore (+3.5) @ New Orleans

  Meat, BMac, TBuck, Jer

  Bode, The Kid

Meat:  If the Saints win, it won’t be by more than a field goal.

The Kid:  Going to be an ugly Mardi Gras.

Bode:  Saints.  Just the Saints.

Consensus:
