DFO, money comes in

So much for not going on tilt.  I swear to you that my initial reaction was to throw it all behind Green Bay to cover against the Raiders.  Did I do what my first instinct told me to do?

WhyEaglesWhy had another excellent week and is now firmly above the $300 mark while King Hippo and DTZM came up slightly down for the week.  Onward!

I’m waiting to see the official line before I pick.  If the Patriots lose that half-point and the line gets to 3, I’m taking them with the rest of my money.  If not, I’m not sure…

UPDATE:  Yup, the line is 3.  All of it.  On the Pats. May God have mercy on my soul. Stakes $78 to win $71.

I sweated out that Giants/Panthers game, but in the end the Giants covered AND lost. Best of all possible worlds. In fact, it’s BETTER than the best of all possible worlds, because I’m in the championship game of my money fantasy league, and my opponent has ODB. Merry Everyone!

Redskins +3 over EAGLES – In Kirk we trust. Stakes: $11 to win $10.

Broncos -3.5 over BENGALS – In A.J. we don’t. Stakes: $11 to win $10.

Patriots -3 over JETS – C’MON MAN. Stakes: $22 to win $20.

Steelers -10 over RAVENS – I’ve never in my life laid 10 points. Shall we? Stakes: $11 to win $10.

50/50 was a blessed relief last week, as my feel was all kinds of wrong. This week, I find myself picking all sorts of crazy shit. Make of it what you will.

Bengals +3.5 over BRONCOS. Remember that Donks season when Catler’s charges were 8-5, and had like 98% odds to win the division? Denver had an easy, home-game laden schedule, and had to lose out (it did) and the Chargers had to win out, including Week 17 in Denver (King Laserface beat Catler into a bloody pulp on flexed SNF)? Well, a variant of that is happening again, and the denouement comes in Week 16 this time around, with a striped pylon win in Mile High. No clue why this line is more than the standard three. The Bungles’ D is almost as good as Denver’s, and MUCH healthier. But the real difference is that their OL isn’t made of wet tissue paper. Godfuckingdamnit. Bet $55 to win $50.

Rams +13.5 over SEAHAWKS. It is not ours to question why or HOW, just to know it is Jeff Fisher going into the Pacific Northwest, and strange shit always happens. Bet $22 to win $20.

Redacteds +3 at IGGLES. Yes, I am predicting that someone actually wraps up the Special Needs Division before Week 17, in a completely unprecedented development. Bet $22 to win $20.

49ers +9.5 at LIONS. When I say “reversion” you say “to the mean!” Bet $11 to win $10.

I would bet Moose’s unused and unwashed junk that the Skins win the East on Saturday night. They’re the only team in that landfill division that isn’t a dumpster fire behind Planned Parenthood. There’s a first time for everything!
