NFL: Five Picks for Week Six
Andrew Luck Celebrates ChicagoBearJew's 4-1 Mark
For those of you that were smart enough to listen last week, you would have done pretty well. I was 4-1 in my predictions and 5-0 against the spread. The highlight of course was my pick of the Indianapolis Colts over the Green Bay Packers. Many people thought Chicago the Jew was going with the Colts out of his hatred for the Packers...and you all thought WRONG!!! It didn't look good early, but the Colts knew what was on the line and came through in the end. My one slip-up was the Philadelphia Eagles at Pittsburgh Steelers. The Eagles covered, but a last-second field goal by the Steelers sealed my fate. It was a good effort, but there's no ribbon for trying. I've set the bar high, but now it's time to shoot even higher.
This week, I am giving you five more chances to look really good around the office water cooler. Or maybe you think I'm lucky and you don't listen to a word. Either way, I am giving you what I think are the five best plays of the week. I wish you the best of luck. Lines are courtesy of Caesars Casino in Las Vegas (and no, they're not pager friendly)
I am looking forward to your feedback on my picks or give me your best ones . As always, you can follow me on Twitter @ChicagoBearJew and Hashtag #RML with your thoughts.
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Tennessee Titans
Tonight's game should be anything but interesting. The Steelers won an exciting game at home, and the Titans are just not very good. With the Steelers finally healthy and the Titans struggling all over the field, I'm taking the Steelers and the juice. This game should be Steelers 31 Titans 10.
Dallas Cowboys @ Baltimore Ravens
Once again, the Cowboys have more excuses than wins. The Ravens one of the league's best teams. This appears to be one of the play's of the year. So I am going to give the Ravens a ton of love in a blowout Ravens 35 Cowboys 21.
New England Patriots @ Seattle Seahawks
The Patriots are hot. The Seahawks are the Seahawks. New England is playing with a lot to prove after a mediocre start. Even in a tough environment, the Patriots are good. I love the Patriots and think this game should go Patriots 24 Seahawks 17.
Minnesota Vikings @ Washington Redskins
There's no line on the board for this game due to RGIII's health. Don't matter, the Vikings get love from me and will win regardless of who's under center. I'm saying Vikings 17 Redskins 10.
Green Bay Packers @ Houston Texans
I've been talking about this game on Twitter. I actually think the Packers are going to be ready to play. The Texans are in great shape and the Packers are fighting for their lives. I'm picking the Pack Packers 31 Texans 17.
How do you like dem apples?
