3-1! 3-1! Holy Tebow I went 3-1 last week!! The drought is over!!! Let’s make some cash in Round 2 of the 2012 NFL Playoffs. Tebow vs Satan? Offense vs Defense in San Francisco? Pack and G-Men in Lambeau? This is gonna be fun….
Check the proof people. 3-1 on last weeks picks. Thanks a lot for showing up Cincinnati.
Will I continue my winning ways into Round 2 of the playoffs or will I revert back to how I was in the regular season? Linda Loveless style. We’ll shall see……
San Francisco 49ers (+3½) vs New Orleans Saints
This is your first game of this playoff weekend and it’s the classic defense vs offense match up. 49ers best D in the NFC, Saints offense best in the NFL. And they both have gold helmets. For whatever that’s worth. REAL life Saints usually can be found in opulent, grandiose cathedrals and crypts. And Candlestick Park is ANYTHING but opulent as the power outtages during Monday Night Football a few weeks ago will attest. I’m leaving this game alone but if you wanna get crazy, take the 49ers money line due to the fact that Saints, because of their saintly nature, usually don’t spend much time in hell which is exactly what Candlestick Park is…….
Kidding. Take the Saints cause they’re going to win this whole thing.
New England Patriots (-13½) vs Denver Broncos
Tebow mania is at fever pitch after last weeks Immaculate Reception Part 2. “Oh, Tebow threw for 316 yards, just like in John 3:16!!! It’s a sign!!!” No mouth breather, it’s just a coincidence. Slow your roll. Vegas must be an atheist because 13½ points is a METRIC TON of a spread to hang on Tebow of Nazareth. I wish I could take the Broncos here because I truly hate Tom Brady with every tired bone in my confederate body but I can’t. Start building crosses now because come this Saturday, Foxboro becomes Golgotha. Pats cover in this “good vs evil” playoff match.
Baltimore Ravens (-7½) vs Houston Texans
Here are two teams that haunt me more than the thought of Paula Deen skinny dipping. I take em to cover and win? They lose. I take them to cover and lose, they win. I take them money line, they tie. And now they play each other. So what to do? When in doubt, recklessly gamble. Take the Texans money line here and I’m sorry Ray Lewis, don’t stab me.
Green Bay Packers (-8) vs New York Giants
The defending Super Bowl Champs got all they wanted out of the G-Men when they played back on Dec. 4th in New York leading MANY to peg this game as a nice bet on the G-Men. Here’s what a smart bet does. Take the Giants to cover in a parlay, but make a back bet money line wager on the G-Men. That’s what smart money would do.
