Turkey Time Picks

Happy Thanksgiving, while everyone is going to put on another 10 pounds this weekend, let’s try to make sure that some of that extra weight is a little cash in your pockets, so let’s get to it. Last week the injury bug got us again, like in the Oregon game and we dropped one on OU but won the other two to go 2-1 and 23-9 on the year. The NFL was not as kind to us and we were just going the wrong way on the Lions and Saints over bringing our record to 19-8 for the year.

This week is tough because of rivalry week in college but a couple of situations stand out because one team has much more to lose than just pride. Let’s start in the SEC where LSU will hold serve at home, stop the run, stop the rumors of their coach leaving and cover the 12 vs. Arkansas. Secondly, the dream season ends for Kansas this weekend and the “game of the century” along the border will be close but because of their greed, playing the game at Arrowhead Stadium rather than in Lawrence, take the Tigers +2.5 vs. the Jayhawks. Lastly, Jim Harbaugh will get some Michigan vibe today as his Cardinal (3.5 buy it down to 3) will beat the Irish who would rather be home.

In the League I’m flopping to the other side and going to play the Colts (-11) to beat Atlanta pretty easy. Next the G-men (7 buy it down to 6.5) to take care of business and keep the heat on vs. Minnesota who with no Peterson and No passing game may not score. Lastly, I like the Raiders, yes I said it, the Raiders (+6) vs. the Chiefs. That’s the chowder, this is Nikki the Fish, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!

Serves you right for betting against Minnesota!
