Joey's Parlay Card (Last Week 6-4/Overall 34-30-1)
Falcons 31 Seahawks 30 --- Seahawks (+5)/Over 51.5
Patriots 35 Texans 10 --- Patriots (-16)/Over 44.5
Steelers 17 Chiefs 3 --- Steelers (+1.5)/Under 44.5
Cowboys 34 Packers 31 --- Packers (+4.5)/Over 52.5
All four favorites covered this last weekend. Now those favorites have to go on the road as dogs, but historically road dogs have been 48-16 since 1978 2-2-1 in the last three years. I'll take three of four dogs...
Seahawks (+4.5) - A rematch of Week 6 when the Seahawks won 24-20 and the Falcons did not get a pass interference call at the end of the game. Both teams are full strength and this game is inside. Falcons win 31-30, but don't cover.
Patriots (-16) - This is one of the biggest spreads in the postseason since the Jets were 17-point underdogs to the Colts in Super Bowl 3. Tom Brady keeps the machine rolling 35-10.
Steelers (+2) - Big Ben left Pittsburgh in a walking boot last week, but unless they cut off his legs, he will play in this game. Pittburgh has the better team, and the temp will dip below freezing. Pittsburgh wins 17-3.
Finally, Green Bay (+4.5) takes on Dallas. This should be the best game of the weekend. Dak and company have steamrolled through the regular season, but at the end they are starting to come back to earth, going 1-5 ATS. Looks like the Pack will be with Jordy Nelson, but the Dallas defense has the edge over the Green Bay defense. It's a close one, but Dallas wins 34-31.
Good luck this weekend and may all your parlays cash!
I can't believe that my brother picked against the Steelers, but I'll publish his bets anyway... ;) Live from the Strip, here's Pete...
Pete's Parlay Card (Last Week 4-6/Overall 32-33)
Falcons 27 Seahawks 21 --- Falcons (-5)/Under 51.5
Patriots 31 Texans 17 --- Texans (+16)/Over 44.5
Chiefs 24 Steelers 20 --- Cheifs (-1.5)/Under 44.5
Cowboys 28 Packers 24 --- Packers (+4.5)/Under 52.5
It's interesting how closely Pete and myself see these games playing out. I actually made my predictions before recording his scores. Live from somewhere in the desert, here's what I've got for this weekend...
Coach's Parlay Card (Last Week 4-6/Overall 34-30-1)
Falcons 27 Seahawks 20 --- Falcons (-5)/Under 51.5 - Falcons have been the more consistent of this pair this season...
Patriots 27 Texans 16 --- Texans (+16)/Under 44.5 - I think the Texans may finally be tired of the jokes and will actually show up for this one...
Steelers 23 Chiefs 20 --- Steelers (+1.5)/Under 44.5 - This has all the makings of a dogfight as Arrowhead is a tough place to play, and both teams have been streaking...
Cowboys 33 Packers 24 --- Cowboys (-4.5)/Over 52.5 - I think that Dallas is the deeper team, but this matchup should be very entertaining...
And that all folks. We'll have four teams left at this time next week. As always, remember that these picks are for entertainment purposes only, and have a great football weekend!
