Place Your Bets Week 16

I went 4-2 last week bringing my stats up to 14-7 and 18-3 on the year. (vs spread/straight up)

I think this is the toughest week of picking yet this season as Vegas continues to get better. Here is my best shot at giving you some winner's!

San Diego @ Cincinnati +7.5

This is an "all and nothing" game. One team has everything to play for, the other has nothing but pride on the line. Once again I will call out San Diego as a pretender if they lose this one. So far this year when I have called out a team, they have responded, so I will make this my Lock of the week. San Diego give the points.

New York Giants @ Green Bay -3

Winner takes all game! Loser will be watching the playoffs, the winner is in the driver's seat for a wild card spot. Green Bay is rushing Rodgers back which I think is a mistake! The Pack did well last week because they could not rely on Aaron and had to commit to run the ball. They happened to be up against the MVP of the league and on the road and still almost won! Unfortunately, that will not be the plan this week with Rodgers back. Even if it is, running advantage goes to the Giants. I think the Giants will run early and often and force Rodgers and the Pack into what they like to do, which is pass...this plays into the Giants defensive strengths, which will further complicate things for the guys in gold and green. I like the Giants to pummel the Packers in Green Bay! There's your upset special! Take the Giants and the points!

Dallas @ Arizona +6.5

Christmas Day game (why does Dallas get all the holiday games asks the Redskins fan?), Dallas will throttle the Cards despite their horrible defense. Make your Christmas a happy one, take Dallas give the points.

Over and Under game of the week...

Doing something I have not done all year, giving you and UNDER!

Detroit is @ Miami 41.5 points is the number.

That means the winning team must score more then 21 points...doubt it! Take the under! These two teams are dreadful offensively!

Have Merry Christmas!
