New Orleans (-11) @ Seattle 44.5 O/U
The Seahawks won their division and the Saints didn't. Seattle gets to host the game. Period. Get over it. And I know enough about NoLa from The Simpsons:
Long before the Superdome, Where the Saints of football play,
Lived a city that the damned call home. Hear their hellish roundelay...
New Or-le-ans, Home of pirates, drunks, and whores,
New Or-le-ans, Tacky overpriced souvenir stores.
If you want to go to Hell, you should take a trip
To the Sodom and Gomorra on the Mississip.
New Or-le-ans, Stinky, rotten, vomiting, vile,
New Or-le-ans, Putrid, brackish, maggoty, foul.
New Or-le-ans, Crummy, lousy, rancid, and rank,
I've tried looking at this from every way yet I can't see how this one is close. The crowd doesn't make THAT much of a difference. The Saints are better at every position. Lay the points and take the over...Saints 34-13.
New York Jets @ Indianapolis (-3) 44.5 O/U
This game does not interest me at all. This is the worst game of the weekend so I'm not upset at all that I will be watching live college hockey instead. What about the Jets' turbulent and ridiculous season makes you confident that they can win in Indy? I trust Peyton at home a hell of a lot more than I do Nacho on the road. I only have to lay 3 points, too? Yes please. Give me the Colts and the over. Colts 30-17.
Baltimore (-3) @ Kansas City 41 O/U
I find this game very intriguing. I have no faith in Joe Flacco at all. People like the Ravens waaaaaaay too much. Whenever the Chiefs have played good teams with good defenses this year, it's always been a struggle for points. I expect that to happen again. If Jamaal Charles gets to 100, the Chiefs will win. I trust Harbaugh and Cundiff in a close game more than I do Haley and Succop. But I'll take the points and the under anyway. Ravens 16-14.
Green Bay @ Philadelphia (-3) 46 O/U
I liked the upset a lot more five days ago than I do today. Why? Because idiots like Stink Schlereth and Peter King have picked the Pack. And while I'm rooting for the Pack, I think that I have to go with my head here. I trust Rodgers more than I do Vick, but if Andy Reid were smart (he isn't), he would let McCoy run wild. Both coaches are horrible in-game so I guess I'll take the one coaching at his own stadium. I don't like it but it's probably the smart play...I'll lay the 3 points with the over. Eagles 31-27.
Bring it. I'm waiting to drop 'bows on you fools.
