Behind enemy lines in the NFL

Ok, sweating out the first game of the day right now as the Bucs are making us work for it but on the late games I’m going to take a road dog New England (+3.5 buy the hook if you got it at 3). On the stat side the Pats are 5-1 their last 6 straight up while the Chargers are 2-5-1 ATS their last 8 games. The Pats’ offense has been clikin’ since the acquisition of Branch and he’s not another week under his belt to get acclimated to the offense, but the Charger defense is best in the NFL against the pass and that is a bit of a concern. Conversely, their defense is the worst in the NFL and New England will take advantage of that for field position and in a close game that could make all the difference. What does scare me is the desperation factor as the Chargers are in a must win situation or their playoff hopes are seriously hurt even though they play in the AFC Weak. That’s the late afternoon bowl of chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!

Yo, I’m back riding a 2-0 NFL weekend from last week and over .675 for the year so let’s get right to it. With all of the attention on the marquis games it leaves room to make some crafty picks of your own and stay out of harm’s way. With that said, I like Tampa Bay (-2.5 buy the hook) at home to win by a field goal. The Rams are 0-5 their last five games on the road and 1-6 ATS their last 7, while the Bucs are 4-1 over their last five. That’s the early morning bowl of chowder, back with more this afternoon. Stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!
