It was a 4-2 week for Ernesto the Prediction Iguana and his crackerjack team of assistants, 2-1 in teasers. That’s a solid start to the year! We won with the Bengals, Ravens, Patriots and Panthers. The two losses were by a combined ONE point in the over/unders.
Here’s this week’s winners before they happen. And when you speak of us, speak kindly -- as Crash Davis said before tipping off a Nuke LaLoosh pitch. As always, we do two-team teasers here, so we can move the line six points either way. We use the lines from Vegas Insider, HOME TEAM IN CAPS.
SAME OLD, SAME OLD
PATRIOTS (+2.5) VS. Chiefs
Chargers (+5) at BROWNS
“But the Patriots this! But the Browns that! This year is different!” Until we lose playin’ the Pats and going against the Browns, dance with them that bring ya!
PATRIOTS-Chiefs UNDER 65.5
BROWNS-Chargers UNDER 50
I know the scoreboard is getting lit up lately, and drives are kept alive by sneezing on an offensive player for a 15-yard flag, but come on people, the Browns are not allowed an over of 50. It’s league policy. Someone is going to get beat down on defense in Foxboro -- just who remains to be seen (cough cough! Mahomes! cough cough!).
GIANTS-Eagles OVER 38
Seahawks (+3.5) at RAIDERS
Quick! Someone tell Al Davis that he should coach the team himself! Meanwhile, imagine how many Super Bowls the Seahawks might have without Pete Carroll?
