Chicago (+7) @ Detroit
Meat, Bode, The Kid, Jer
TBuck: This line has Snoop D-O-Double G written all over it – too motherfuckin’ high.
Bode: Turkey leg for Stafford who throws for 400 at home.
Jer: Detroit due for a massive offensive explosion and they get it at home.
Philadelphia (+3) @ Dallas
Meat, Bode, TBuck, The Kid
Meat: You don’t bet against Dallas on Turkey Day…especially with the ghost of the Butt Fumble starting at the other QB.
BMac: Still not buying Dallas as I most likely incorrectly pick their game for the 12 straight week.
Bode: Sanchez exposed in this important divisional match up.
Seattle (+1) @ San Francisco
Big Play Lock
Jer: San Fran has being doing their best to lose games and they keep coming up with wins. Seattle doesn’t let that happen.
The Kid: Seattle is hitting their groove as they’re 9 – 1 in their last ten games as the underdog.
Bode: San Francisco does not deserve to be the favorite in this game. Bet the under too.
Washington (+9.5) @ Indianapolis
Bode, Jer, The Kid, BMac, TBuck
Meat: Colt works his magic and prevents Indianapolis from covering.
TBuck: Just like the original Thanksgiving, the Redskins get demolished. Word is Indy sent them blankets this week.
BMac: Washington has a good run D and a bad pass D. That’s a bad combo when going up against Luck in the dome.
Tennessee (+6.5) @ Houston
TBuck, Jer, The Kid
Meat, BMac, Bode
The Kid: Who made this fucking spread?
TBuck: If Foster goes, I’d take Houston. You probably should not be betting on this game.
Jer: If Foster plays I switch to Houston, as it is I’ll take a crappy team getting points from another crappy team.
Cleveland (+2) @ Buffalo
Meat, BMac, TBuck
Bode, Jer, The Kid
Meat: Hectic week for the Bills finally catches up to them in the form of a revitalized Cleveland offense.
The Kid: The loss of Dansby and Gipson is real.
TBuck: Buffalo is 1-4 as a home favorite. Another week of practice with Flash should do the trick for the Brownies.
San Diego (+5) @ Baltimore
Bode, The Kid
Meat, Jer, BMac, TBuck
Jer: Baltimore is just the better team. Too much pressure for Rivers to overcome.
TBuck: Too experienced to have a letdown game here when they need the win to keep up with the rest of the AFC North.
Meat: Been a few months since San Diego won a meaningful game. Doesn’t start in Baltimore.
New York Giants @ Jacksonville (+2)
Bode, Meat, Jer, BMac, TBuck
BMac: I’ll most likely regret this pick midway through the first quarter after Eli’s second interception.
The Kid: Teams are 1 – 10 after playing Dallas this year.
Meat: This is one of those games where NYG looks good against a shitty opponent and you think, for a second, they’re not that bad.
Cincinnati @ Tampa Bay (+3.5)
Meat, Bode, Jer, BMac, TBuck
Bode: Cincinnati gets the ground game going and beats Jacksonville easily.
TBuck: Have the Bengals figured it out? This feels like a game they could lose outright. I’m staying away but if you need to scratch that itch, take them to cover.
The Kid: The Red Rocket gets swashbuckled.
Oakland (+7) @ St. Louis
Jer, The Kid, Meat, Bode, BMac
BMac: Rams D is really starting to turn it around.
TBuck: Surprisingly good as a road dog at 4-1 and super hot right now as they ride that 1 game winning streak.
Meat: Not about to start trusting the Raiders because they won a fluke game on Thursday night.
New Orleans (+3) @ Pittsburgh
Meat, Bode, BMac, TBuck, The Kid
Jer: Combination of gut call and wishful thinking. I don’t think Saints drop 4 in a row for some reason.
The Kid: Pittsburgh gets back Shazier, Troy, and Taylor back.
Bode: Just not the same old Saints.
Carolina (+3) @ Minnesota
Bode, Jer, The Kid, TBuck, BMac
Meat: If Minnesota can stick with Green Bay, they can certainly beat Carolina by a touchdown.
Jer: Hopefully Carolina did something productive during their off week.
Bode: Minnesota’s not quite there yet.
Arizona @ Atlanta (+2.5)
Big Play Lock
TBuck: Good value here. Should bounce back nicely like a quarter off a firm ass.
BMac: Cards D-line should do some eating.
The Kid: Sketchy spread. Mike Smith tries to over coach and gets speared by Arians.
New England (+3) @ Green Bay
Bode, BMac, TBuck, The Kid
Meat: Don’t care where this game is. New England should be favored.
TBuck: We got ourselves a game here boys. The Pats are due for a loss.
BMac: Pats have been on fire, but Rodgers is unstoppable at Lambeau.
Denver @ Kansas City (+1)
Bode, Jer, BMac, Meat, TBuck
The Kid: Loss of Berry hurts, but they step up and tighten up the AFC West race.
Bode: KC’s tough at Arrowhead, but Denver’s just too potent.
BMac: Line here is fishy as hell, Broncos have been shaky lately, but KC’s dink and dunk offense won’t be able to trade scores with Peyton.
Miami @ New York Jets (+4.5)
Bode, Meat, BMac, TBuck
Jer, The Kid
Jer: What an awesome game. There is absolutely no way I’ll be playing a video game instead of watching this. I’ll take the home dog.
BMac: Another dog of a Monday night game. Phins D just too tough for the Jets.
TBuck: And so begins Rex Ryan’s farewell tour. It’s been really fun having him around.
