Charlie For the Season 1-0-1
Here you go friends!
Well, I got us off to a good start last week at 1-0-1. Gotta love pushes, right? You don't win, which sucks. But you don't lose, which is totally bad ass. So it's kinda like you didn't even make a bet at all, which is sad and depressing. So you know what I'm going to do for you? I'm going to give you a super special bonus pick! Michigan St heads into South Bend to take on the Fighting Irish. Sparty is 2-0 and has looked pretty good. The Irish are 0-2 and have looked brilliant at times, and completely inept the rest of the time. Yet for some reason Notre Dame is still a 6 point favorite. TAKE SPARTY. If Sparty doesn't win I don't have any faith in ND winning by more than 3. Isn't it wonderful when Notre Dame sucks?
On to the real picks. There are a lot of huge spreads out there. I know for a fact that the Steelers are going to destroy the Seabags, it's going to get ugly. Yet the idea of a 14 point spread terrifies the shit out of me, there is no way I'm touching that. I feel the same way about the Lions game. They looked amazing, but 9 points for Detroit? No thanks, at least not yet. Keeping it in the NFC North that brings us to the Vikings. Donovan McNabb threw for roughly 6 yards last week (I may have rounded down) and the team looked like garbage. Yet they are 3 point favorites against a Buccaneers team that I think is still pretty good. I think Tampa wins this one outright so you should definitely take Radio Raheem and THE BUCS. I might even throw this bad boy in a moneyline parlay to put the odds in your favor with some big favorites if your bookie is a kind soul.
