BOBBY BISCIG'S WEEK 9 PICKS
Here on out, we are going to pick using the lines. This way, if you readers feel like winning a lot of money every week, you can decide which picks you like the best, then go place your bets knowing you're going to go into Tuesday morning a much richer man.
After going 10-4 last week (18-10) overall, I'm feeling pretty confident my picks will hold true this week. While I don't think the highlighted teams will necessarily win, I think they will cover. Of course, I think Detroit will cover and beat the Bears in Chicago. I've had enough of this 0-16 crap talk.
Getting the obvious picks out of the way, my upset special this week is Cincinnati v. the Jaguars. Cincinnati is going to pull their first win out of their ass today. Ryan Fitzpatrick really started to click late last week and being at home will help them against a team coming off a tough loss against another Ohio team. I guess I don't really care, though. As long as they lose by 9 or less though, I'll be a happy, rich man.
CHIP'S WEEK 9 PICKSThe Vikings are going to realize that there is a reason Gus Frerotte has been a career backup today when Andre Johnson and the Texans rodeo their way into Minnesota.
I'm taking the Chiefs to cover the spread at home when they play another vintage 1990s/early 2000s quarterback in Jeff Garcia.
The biggest spread this week is the 12.5 point whopper between the Lions and the Bears. Do you even have to ask who I'm picking there?
Finally, the Colts played a real solid game last week on the road against the Titans. I'm taking them at home against the Patriots. I'm still waiting for Matt Cassel to fall apart and I think that might happen this week.
