I just love it!!!
Week 6 NFL Action
Upsets and drama were rampant in Week 6 of the NFL season. We saw several teams come through in the clutch, including some previously winless teams. Here's a look at how each team fared on Sunday.
Panthers 23 Ravens 21
It's hard to peg these Carolina Panthers. First they lose a couple of games and then they rattle off four wins in a row. While the running game didn't do much here, neither did that of the Ravens. Carolina's defense appears to be improving and getting the big stops, while Baltimore's offense is abysmal.
Cowboys 34 Texans 6
Dallas backers were nervous early on, as Houston managed to keep things close heading into the half. However, the Cowboys got their ground game going in the third quarter and got to David Carr the rest of the game. It was an easy cover for Dallas.
Lions 20 Bills 17
Detroit was one of three winless teams to get their first win Sunday. It was a hard fought victory over Buffalo. The Bills started slow in this one and it cost them. Kevin Jones had a couple of key first down runs in the final quarter, as Detroit finally learned how to finish a ball game and was home underdog winner.
Saints 27 Eagles 24
It's official, I am now believer in the Saints. At 5-1, there's no more disputing them as a top tier team. The Eagles' defense was just not good enough in this one, as Drew Brees was able to bring his team back late after they had given up a big lead. He held his own with Donovan McNabb and now Saints bettors after sitting on a pile of money.
Giants 27 Falcons 14
It was a case of the New York defensive line duplicating their performance from Week 5 and Michael Vick being kept in the pocket. Jeremy Shockey played and was great, as was Tikki Barker. Giants backers not only covered as a road dog, but they won the game outright! Atlanta looks like a shaky bet right now.
Jets 20 Dolphins 17
Did people really sit down and watch this entire game? Wow, brave souls. It wasn't pretty, but New York covered and got the job done. Defense and sloppy offensive play ruled this contest, as New York squared their record and proved once and for all that Joey Harrington is not an NFL quarterback.
Broncos 13 Raiders 3
Denver continued their strong defensive play and Oakland continued to give the ball away. Bad penalties and poor decision-making marred this Raiders team in Denver. Oakland actually outgained the Broncos, but Denver made fewer mistakes.
Steelers 45 Chiefs 7
Finally, the real Steelers showed up for a full game. That big play defense made big plays and Pittsburgh climbed right back into the thick of things in the AFC North. Ben Roethlisberger had his best game of the season and Damon Huard didn't. The Steelers covered the big touchdown spread midway in the first quarter!
Chargers 48 49ers 19
Philip Rivers is getting more and more comfortable in that offense and LaDanaian Tomlinson proved why he is the best runningback in the game. San Francisco looked okay on offense, but their defensive secondary was brutal. The Chargers covered the huge spread easily.
Seahawks 30 Rams 28
This one was the most exciting game of the day. Seattle failed to cover as a road favorite, as St. Louis raced out to a big lead before crumbling late. A 54-yard game-winning field goal sealed it.
Bucs 14 Bengals 13
Another winless team gets a victory in Week 6, albeit not without a little controversy. A reviewed TD by Clayton seals the deal for Tampa Bay. The Bengals played well on defense, but their offense looked rusty coming off a bye week. Bettors saw another home underdog pay off.
Titans 25 Redskins 22
Speaking of winless teams getting their first victory... How about being a 10.5 point underdog and winning outright! Tennessee got a fantastic day on the ground from Travis Henry and a composed start from Vince Young. Mark Brunell and the Washington offense was sub par and their defense had some tackling issues.
NFL Week 5
Week 5 did not disappoint in terms of the marquee matchups. The Eagles squeaked one out versus a sloppy
Bears 40 Bills 7
You know what I love about this game? That
Panthers 20 Browns 12
Ho…hum... we expected this result and sure enough it came through.
Vikings 26 Lions 17
That’s it. I give up. No more backing the Lions. For two straight weeks, this team was good enough to win on the road and they shot themselves in the foot with turnovers. Wow, are they ugly or what? We now know why Jon Kitna was run out of a couple of cities.
Patriots 20 Dolphins 10
Another predictable result. In fact, it finished exactly on the spread. Sure, Joey Harrington was better than Culpepper had been, but is that saying much? Tom Brady didn’t have to do much here; his defense took care of things.
Rams 23 Packers 20
It’s getting embarrassing for Brett Favre. He should have packed it in already. Too bad, it’s getting harder and harder to remember the good times. As for the Rams? Let’s see what they do against Seattle in Week 6.
Saints 24 Bucs 21
A nice win for Reggie and the Saints. This was a trap game, one that bettors were steering clear of and for good reason. New Orleans did not cover, and they may not again in Week 6 as a dog to Philly.
Colts 14 Titans 13
This would have been one of the biggest upsets in recent NFL regular season history. Vince Young may just win a couple of games this season. Or, maybe it’s that the Indy defense is very, very suspect. It’s probably a little of both.
Giants 19 Redskins 3
That’s more like it. We didn’t buy Washington as a playoff team coming into the season and this game showed what they’re capable of when it counts. New York HAD to have this game to salvage their season and it showed.
Chiefs 23 Cardinals 20
We liked Matt Leinart’s composure and determination. However, now that Larry Fitzgerald is out we don’t give him much success, especially against the Bears in Week 6. A nice win for KC. Herman Edwards has this team believing and we can’t really refute him at this point.
Jaguars 41 Jets 0
No one could predict an utter meltdown from the Jets. We saw this type of result for New York before the season, but not after a 2-2 start elevated expectations. Coach Mangini’s wisdom will be tested. As for the Jags? This was a statement, but they have to be more consistent for statements to mean anything.
49ers 34 Raiders 20
A nice rebound effort by San Francisco over a hapless Oakland squad. Could the Raiders go winless? It’s possible. San Francisco has got to work on their defense though, as their offense is shaping up nicely.
Eagles 38 Cowboys 24
What a great game it was. We appreciate the talents and leadership abilities that Donovan McNabb brings to the table- especially when you consider how bad Drew Bledsoe is. Philadelphia looks very, very strong.
Chargers 23 Steelers 13
We really thought the Steelers would prevail here. Their defense is just missing that big play ability right now and that in turn is exposing their offense as being average.
Broncos 13 Ravens 3
This was a battle to find out who the second best defense is in the league and we now know. Clearly Denver’s stoppers are putting together a prolific season, as they’ve given up only one TD in 4 games. Ravens fans have got to see more out of their running game if they want to dream Super Bowl.
Week 4 NFL
The Cincinnati Bengals, Indianapolis Colts, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints and San Diego Chargers have yet to drop the cash. All five teams strap it up in Week 4's day action as they attempt to continue stuffing wallets for their investors.
In Sunday's night cap, it's the Seattle Seahawks (3-0 SU & 2-1 ATS) heading into the windy city to face the Chicago Bears (3-0 SU & 2-1 ATS). The Seahawks have been getting the job done on offense, but for the Bears it's been a rock-solid defense that's been putting their backers at the ticket counter.
Last week, Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck threw five touchdown passes, as the high-octane offense put up 42 points in a romp over the Giants. But don't expect the Seahawks to run up and down the field Sunday night against a Bears' defense that has allowed just 23 points on the year.
MNF wraps things up when Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers (1-2 SU & ATS) invade Philadelphia to take on the Eagles (2-1 SU & ATS).
NFL Week 2 & 3
Week 3's schedule includes some good games across the board. The Chicago Bears and their stellar defense roar into Minnesota to face the Vikings.
Sunday's night cap features the Denver Broncos riding into New England to do battle with the Patriots. The Broncos have yet to put their backers at the ticket window with a 0-2 ATS mark.
And the must bet game of the week? The incredible match-up of 2-0 teams, as the Indianapolis Colts take on the charging Jaguars.
On MNF, it will be the Atlanta Falcons taking on the hosting New Orleans Saints. Both clubs have fattened the wallets of their investors with a perfect 2-0 SU & ATS number.
In Week 1, NFL teams struggled on offense making for a dominating 12-3 record in favor of the under, but in Week 2 clubs found more productivity offensively creating an O/U mark of 7-7-2. As we head into Week 3, it's likely the trend will continue.
NFL Season is here!
Monday, bettors were treated to a rare double-header, where the Vikings got a 19-16 win as the puppies against the hosting Redskins. The favored Chargers trounced the Raiders with a 26-0 victory. Again, the road warriors dominated while the under players smiled.
Week 2 will provide football gamblers with stellar action. The Giants take on the Eagles in a super NFC East clash.
Sunday evening, the Redskins meet the Cowboys, and on MNF the Steelers go south to battle the Jaguars.
