we back? Week 13.
Been a crazy year.
Been going by real fast, so it's already weak.
We've been doing this.
Took me what took me 11 to get a winning week. Now I got two in a row.
Baby, we're cooking now we're cooking two in a row.
We're gonna make it three.
I don't like to sling a lot, but, you know, I'm gonna find a couple of that.
I like to keep the train rolling. I was do.
I was do the slates.
Okay for me this week, I'm kind of like Slate did.
Joker likes to slate, so let's hop into it.
Let's hop into the first game ugly when we got no Thursday night game.
Obviously had that wild Wednesday night.
Mixed little trace. McSorley.
Right there. But two.
Yeah, he was He was bawling.
I mean, he was running, he was running well, but, you know, injuries.
That's that's what hurt him his whole career.
So, I mean, are see through.
Was was crazy, talented.
And then the injuries got him.
You had an injury.
Slow you down over time, but I'd like to see him out there.
Speaking of injuries, speaking of ugly games, lions, Bears, bears at home.
Bear in mind is 2.
5 ugly game Monday, Robiskie.
I mean, you saw what? He got benched.
Yeah, And when the Lions Lions were just bad, you know, Matt, Patricia gone.
They just have a lot of talent.
It's gonna be ugly game.
Like I said, Bears.
Well, it's something minus three, actually.
So Bears minus three at home 44 a half is to stay away from me.
But if you had to take something you like, I like the bears.
Um, they're the defense is gonna be the best team on the field.
So lines look a little dysfunctional.
Injury staffer looks on and off the Copa list all year.
Bare that home they win 24 20.
I was gonna say the same thing.
The best unit in that game by far.
Uh, but to stay away, maybe the under for me, maybe take the under in this game, but, you know, they play some crazy games.
The lines bears lines usually cover.
But I don't wanna bet either way with these with these two so provided takes on my probably take the under e like the under to Like Thunder.
So 2024 20 I like that next up.
O e don't see it going above that.
Yeah, I'm with you.
I'll take the under Next up Bangles Dolphins.
They're supposed to be two of Versed Borough Now we got who Ryan Finley don't even know he's playing to be for the Bangles and Fitzpatrick.
Dolphins, minus nine and a 10.
Seems like a lot even against the Bangles.
But Dolphins at home.
You think Dolphins at home Backup quarterback Cincinnati season is over.
I mean, they're just out there playing in rep, saying Getting better for next year.
Make sure they're out there and putting things on film for other teams from next year.
For those that's about to be free agents and making people making sure they get paid.
But and they're going down to Miami.
Uh, in December, they're just gonna wrap it up.
When this game big and handling.
The defense comes out and plays well.
Forced two turnovers and they win 27 13, 27 13.
I think that's a lot of points. Still.
I mean, I could see him covering.
They probably this kind of gonna look the same as it did against the Jets.
Maybe, you know, 23 27 10, but 27.
Still a lot, but yeah, I think they do cover.
End up covering the defense.
The defense is really good. Defense travels.
They don't need to do a whole lot on offense.
Should be getting get a dove and the office have a good record.
They should win This game moved. Moved to a and four.
That defense is legit.
They have some weapons on offense.
Buffet up game Monday night.
So depending on what was going that game, we're gonna be a top of the race at the FCC.
Look out for Miami.
Bryan Flores. Coach. The year conversation, for sure.
I mean, timely, undefeated, But the turnaround He's taking Miami from the bottom to the top and a quick turnaround at that, um, outstanding outstanding, and I hope he gets it.
I hope he gets it.
He's right up there. He's right up there.
HC South matchup.
Playing like one of the best Q.
B is in the league with one of the worst supporting cast in the league.
Are there at home there? Ah, they're plus 3.
5 at home against Big Filling.
The Colts Titans did work to the Coast, but Colts has some injuries on the D line from Kobe. Stuff on the D line.
But what do you think, Ken do Sean carry this team to a division win? I guess.
A good Coast team, I don't know.
With the Spread.
I don't think they win the game out right then The game's pretty close, doesn't he? Doesn't have enough help.
Hey, had to do everything. It's himself.
He has to improvise.
Be creative if basically every down.
So I think that they come out and play hard at home and keep it close, but they lose the game.
I like the Colts off the coast of covers when my favorite games of the week.
Wolf Fuller's out that ped suspension.
Uh, the offense is different.
Without Fuller, he's legit.
Shaun can only do so much of what's around him.
And I think that Coles defense is legit. That get healthy.
I think they do enoughto cover.
Like I said, Houston, just not good.
That's not on too strong, but they're just not good.
And I think in these legitimately good, yeah, they're not good.
A good football team in Indianapolis is okay.
I don't think they're good. I think they're okay.
They're right in the middle of pack.
Uh, it's gonna be tough to see if they make the playoffs.
Thank you. We appreciate that.
We appreciate that.
We appreciate that.
Good. Looks good. Looks.
Yeah, the coats.
No, the pack team and the coach might not even make the playoffs this year.
Well, that's that's a hot take.
I think they're good enough to make the playoffs.
Like I said, that defense is good.
Feels doing enough running backs.
A good A lot of people that were weak that that time game and if they if they get to force back E.
I mean, they should be The Texans.
Could be a sneaky over game called Defense has been getting some points.
Texans Defense isn't good.
5 could be a little sneaky over Thio, but I like the culture over can happen. I got it.
Hop on that one.
Quick, if you get it at 47 e 24. 23.
So you know that's close. That's close. Yeah.
See? Alright. Next game.
The lines moved a little bit.
Opened at minus 8.
Now, Kirk, my boy Kirk and the Vikings at home against the Jaguars.
Let's pause real quick.
We were both on the Vikings Panthers under last week.
Yeah, and that should have happened last week.
And Dalvin fun with the ball.
Back to back plays.
The Panthers defense scored back to back scoop and scores Madness madness.
And then it was still good.
And you like Kirk, game manager extraordinaire, drive down the field and, like, four plays and score on you Come on.
Gotta do better.
Carolina, You gotta do better.
But you gotta do better for 10.
Teddy. Teddy coming back toe Minnesota.
He did enough to win.
He threw a dime to to get the fuel range, and then they missed a field goal.
He didn't want it enough to win.
He right? They did.
Mr Chance, Uh, at the end, the game with that field go.
But Teddy did Enough defense.
Didn't hold up at the end.
Uh, bad loss for the Panthers this week.
Minnesota taking on Jacksonville's stay away game for me.
Jacksonville has been covering a lot sneaky with backdoors, so I would be surprised if that happened this week.
I do like the over in this game.
I do see point school or Jacksonville preached that over.
Yes, sir. Yes, sir.
All throughout the season.
So I see the over.
Minnesota has been scoring a lot.
I see Darwin having a buck 25 on the ground with two touchdowns.
Well, fantasy advice I'd like to over in this game.
Jackson was not good, but they can score in.
Minnesota gives up points, but they can score to They don't have an answer for Dalvin.
They got weapons to receivers, backs.
Minnesota's offense is good.
Jacksonville can score.
I like over inside, you know, in Minnesota, all signs point to that over to me.
Yeah, I like the over should be a lot of points.
It's the ugly one Raiders coming off, but ah, weird loss to the Falcons.
Anything that could go wrong did go wrong.
Now they go back east again.
They're minus eight on the road.
Looks like Josh Jacobs isn't playing, but they're playing the Jets.
So it's an interesting one lot.
The team going West team going east, West Coast team going east.
You know, you don't usually like to take that, but they're playing the Jets, so, you know, is a weird one to really, This is a real one, but I like the New York Jets to cover with, Oh, the Joker.
Joker usually is a big Jets fader.
He always best against him in the Jets Jets.
What the Jets will keep it closed this week.
The Jets will keep the close against the Raiders.
Lose the game, 28 to 24.
That's interesting I think that's a smart bet, but the gesture just not a team I wanna bet with.
I don't wanna have to rely on the just to do anything for me.
So let's just stay away from me.
Maybe a little sneaky, sneaky over.
But it's in New York, so that weather could be a factor.
But it's a big stay away from me.
It's a big stay away from me.
Take the point for the Jets.
You heard him. You heard him.
Saints minus three.
Going into Atlanta would Taysom Hill, who's still not really playing quarterback but doing enough on the ground? That defense is balling out.
And last time they played what two weeks ago, and the same blew him out and Falcons look good last week.
Seems defense looked good last week against a team with no cubes, but that's interesting. One.
What do you think? States minus three on the road divisional matchup on the road.
So they played two weeks ago on the same channel them easily, but they come back into the dome uh, in Atlanta, and the Falcons keep it close and they covered with the spread.
I wouldn't be surprised they win the game out right? But I like to gain to be 27 to 28 27 20 e like that.
I kind of like Falcons money line, you know, uh, drills a little bit on the money line, See what happens.
I like the Falcons to cover, too, but it's the same thing.
I like them to cover when they play the same last time and takes his first game, you know, maybe second time around where he got a little scheme for him.
Now that's all that is.
We got film now, but yeah, I mean, if the Saints the Saints get behind and then he tasted the throw, It's not a good look.
And he even had a couple throws against the Falcons, man, A couple of ducks that hung up there that he got lucky on receivers Mason place.
So I mean, I was never sold on him as a Q B.
But I mean, he hasn't shown me anything to change my mind.
But they see something there with him every day, so they know something that we don't.
I mean, I mean they're seeing what we're seeing, like he he can run the ball on the ground like he's, you know, he's a beast.
But he had a quarterback.
He's a he's like he's a tight end running back, playing, playing.
He can throw the ball a little bit, but I mean, if you want somebody to throw the ball, get Jamie's out there, I start.
I want to see Jamie's out there.
I think I think that'd be more fun.
But there's something that we're not saying that they're saying to have.
He'll start and not Jamie's get any reps.
So I mean, maybe this week we see James and a blow out of the game get out of hand.
What do you think happens if what the Falcons get at 14, you think they stick with Taysom? Mm.
I think they stick with him, you know, give him a driver to, to try to cut it down.
And if it goes into like this, like 23 at halftime Falcons, they'll probably switch it.
I'm still ready for Jamie's in that offense.
I like that high risk, high reward vs tasting who you know what you're gonna get every week.
So that's just me, though.
I mean, they went in there 92 but it's that defense.
That defense is nasty.
Yeah, next up, this cam drawing.
Good cam, drawing good.
A good secondary.
Good secondary out there, too.
But this game, this was this was, I mean, record wise.
This could be a game of the week, but I didn't pick.
It is our game of the week.
Brown's Titans, Titans minus five at home.
Not a pretty 83 but 83 nonetheless.
They look good, man.
If there be, if they had a they get a pass rush or something, they be legit.
But that offense is nasty.
Davian just been a little hurt. They're going.
They're going to get some pass rush later in the season.
They won the playoffs.
They'll be fine.
They'll be running.
They'll be deep in the playoffs.
Um, they want in the game this week.
Uh, they don't cover.
The Browns covered with the 5.
5 points, the game will be 28.
24 Titans went at home.
Brown's covered with 5.
Fourth quarter is gonna be some fourth quarter touchdowns because the running game is gonna be pounding, pounding, pounding defense to be tired.
You're not gonna want to tackle Derrick Henry in the fourth quarter.
I see the game being 21 17 and going into the fourth, Titan's gonna touchdown browns gonna touch down Titans.
Browns get to drive coming down.
They don't do it times when the game.
Wow, we got We got a full full fourth quarter prediction.
Full fourth quarter breakdown right there.
That's Ah, ain't seen that before, But I like the Titans.
I feel like the public gonna be on the Titans a lot, but I don't think the Browns were that good.
Bakers not that good.
They're winning ugly.
Uh, they do get Miles Gary back, but I think the I think what you said is kind of right, except the time will be up by maybe 10 or something.
And then Derrick Henry breaks off.
Would be run in the fourth to get him up by, like 17, enough to cover and maybe Brown's get a garbage time touchdown.
But if the Browns air down It ain't a good look because they like to run the ball, too.
But the time can run on you and throw on you.
So I like the Titans.
A. J. Brown A. J. Brown is a beast.
A. J. Brown is a beast.
Him and decay on the same college team.
But they said they had NFL receivers.
They said that they think it on there.
It wasn't like it wasn't mine.
All right, Next up, this going test jokers, Giants cover like to cover Giants plus 10.
Going into Seattle is an interesting game.
5 now it's at minus now.
The Seahawks ar minus 10.5.
No Daniel Jones.
But the Seahawks play close games, and the Giants like to cover.
But Seattle is clearly the better team team, less injuries.
A quarterback player.
Jones is that this was back up.
I'm not even better, right? So they go in to see how they get.
They get hurt, they get hurt.
This week, 35 13.
That game is not close.
Um, Seattle kiss keeps on rolling from the Monday night victory on the NFC East teams.
I mean, I'm inclined to take Seattle minus the points to against the Giants, because if they get down, there ain't no way they're coming back.
So I like Seattle to all right this game.
This is when I picked this game of the week.
Rams at Cardinals, Rams minus 2.
Cardinals coming off a tough loss.
A game They should have one in New England.
Rams coming off ugly loss.
Man, he's about his average, is average.
And he loves turning the ball over.
It's up and down.
He's up and down like elevators, But he, hey, bounces back, goes back up this week.
He gets the win.
Cardinals Calamari is hurt.
I think he's gonna need a couple more weeks with that shoulder.
They're not running.
They're not calling.
No quarterback runs for him, which is a big part of their offense.
Uh, Jalen Ramsey can shut down D hop with that one on one, and they had, like, the have other receivers do things, Kurt.
And then those guys eso I like the Rams to come and come on the road and get a divisional win, 31 23.
I think the Rams went to, uh, I think Cliff could have managed the game better.
I think he's still really conservative.
That should have been a That should have been easy.
Double the end for them, uh, against the Patriots.
They should have one, but I don't think that I think there are bad matchup.
The Rams were bad matchup for them, especially if college is not running.
That's like half the offense, unless unless he decides to let college just slinging around.
But his game plan feel like he's still holding collar back a little bit.
I just want I want to say I mean, but it doesn't look like his passenger bad looks like he's running.
That's what's affecting when he's running.
I mean, he makes he still makes a nice passes against the past.
Looks like you don't wanna get hit when he runs thinking about it.
I mean, the mental is mental, you know, you don't want to get hurt, and probably every time you get hits you feel it.
You don't get, you know, running it part of his game, though, so we'll see.
I think I think it needs a couple more weeks to get healthy.
Let's say if not next week, the week after he'll be back, right? But it sounds like we're both on the ramp.
So both on the ramps.
Yeah, all right, we got to talk about it now equals Packers.
We gotta talk about that Eagles game, the back door of all backdoors, back door cover for all the Eagles fans.
And then they get the two point conversion for you.
Also, let's not forget about that.
I mean, the Hail Mary does nothing if you don't get two point conversion.
So I mean, that's how it goes.
Not only they get a two point conversion, they got on a on like a draw.
Yeah, it's not a bad play.
I guess it's not.
It's not a bad place, but it's like it's just, you know, break your heart a little bit more like your heart is broken.
And then they stepped on it with that little draw play.
Filly, filly Filly did it and they covered.
And this week they cover again.
They lose the game they lived again.
Aaron Rodgers and company.
But they do cover.
They do cover And they went. They lose the game.
I could see them covering to its Jalen hurts time.
It's been Jalen hurts time for about three weeks now, but it's like it's for real.
Jalen hurts time now.
Carson Wentz is playing like one of the worst quarterbacks in the league.
And you you got a second round pick sitting on the bench coming in for one or two plays. The game.
Just put him in there. What you got to lose.
Yeah, I mean, like, it might be something going on upstairs that we don't know about, You know, Like I said, Doug E.
P might not want Jalen hurts in the game.
But people in the front office might want Jalen hurts in the game.
So it could be a lot of pulling teeth, you know? So that's that's and that's why we hear a lot of things and within the media throughout the week that he's been getting practice reps because maybe that's what they wanted to do.
But Doug is peace still have to put him in the game, so If he doesn't do that, he'll just be on the sideline.
But I think it's time, though.
It's time when he's not playing well.
So I mean to in hit with what I mean, that's an understatement.
He ain't playing. Yeah, he playing like garbage.
I mean, you know, say, say what you want.
I mean, did you watch the Monday night game like Brian Greasy was talking about him like he was in the M V P conversation? Yeah.
I don't know what brought Greece he was talking about. He was.
I seen that Brian Griese.
She was hyping him up a little bit too much, But well, Carson Wilson's been has not been playing well this year.
That flat out what it is.
That's what I'm saying.
And he's playing against, you know, maybe the best quarterback of our generation on it with a good offense.
But you know, the Eagles defense place tough.
I could see him covering, but I might take Rogers in this one.
I'm not gonna I might take Rodgers.
The eagles cover though the eagles do cover.
Carson Wentz is the garbage time.
The garbage time covering machine.
As you saw it last week.
Yeah, there's a good one to this.
Chargers at home, minus 1.
5 against the Pats.
I mean that Charges Bills game.
That's another one.
That's another wild game last week.
Tough one all the way down to the end, um, charges coming back home, pointing of No a f c East opponent, uh, this game to stay away. Game for me.
If I had to take something else will take the under.
I don't see many points being scored.
A lot of running, a lot of running the ball.
Herbert is a rookie quarterback against Belichick Patriots.
They're going to run the ball at you at you and running at you some more.
So low Scoring Game five. Do anything.
I'll take the under. But I would stay away from the Spreads.
This this is risky, but I like the Chargers.
They find a way to lose close games, but I think they just got a lot more talent than that Patriots team does.
And I think I think they can win this game, you know, charges a team that charges or the team that could lose to anybody on a given week or beat anybody on a given week.
You just never know on, Uh, I think that's a game or where they could fall out a little bit.
So I like the Chargers.
Okay, Alright. Herbert.
Oh, Hurricane Ball and hecklers back.
You know, they got Williams and Alan.
That offense is legit, that offensive legit, and they got players on defense, so I mean, they're not.
They're not far away from from from being good, they're not far away from being good.
That's game. Sunday night.
Broncos got their Q B room back, but they're Cuba.
They're still bad, but at least they got a receiver playing Q B No more.
I guess the Chiefs, who once again didn't cover uh, Andy let me down.
I picked him twice, let me down.
They should have easily covered against the Bucks.
They were playing with him in the first half, toying with him, and they kind of like they kind of let their foot off the gas.
That's kind of been what they've been doing.
You know they'll win the games, but they're not like stepping on the team's throat.
Feels a pound in a amount, but it's all right.
they do? They will this week.
Um, and they'll get They'll get a big help from the defense defense forcing turnovers my home.
Throw the ball around the yard.
They won the game 37 to 20.
I'm with you. I like the chiefs again.
Yeah, they're they're way better than the Broncos.
Brantley have no offense injuries.
Broncos defense plan.
All right, but all right, I'm gonna cut it against the Chiefs.
And, uh, you see, last week I let you all know little prop bet Tyreke over reception.
If is there to take it again, take it Every week, you'll win more than you lose.
That's guaranteed as a guaranteed.
Yeah, man, especially you try to play man on him.
I mean, you gotta It's tough.
That offense is tough.
It's a track meet.
I mean, where you going? You got to double somebody, but you're gonna leave somebody open and they are running 43 Yeah, And then you got Chelsea.
Do you like, so I mean, it's tough that often stuff out of weapons out of weapons, fax, fax, eso cheese.
13.5. But we both like cheese.
We talked about this earlier off the ERA, but football team going into Pittsburgh plus seven Steelers played Wednesday in Ugly Game.
Now they're at home 11 and no looking to go 12.
And so, uh, we we've both been on the Steelers, kinda kind of telling them that they're not as good as that record shows, and I still believe it.
I still believe it.
I mean, but they've been winning games.
Can't knock that.
They've been winning game, but they're not that good.
I don't see them in the Super Bowl this year.
They will make the playoffs, but by by record, but they won't win the Super Bowl.
They might even go out in the first round when they pull not the first round I'm gonna buy, but the first game they play, they might go out, unfortunately, But that's just how my goes.
And that's how it goes sometimes in sports but short week good defense Coming into Pittsburgh, Alex Smith, game manager, won't won't turn the ball over too much as he gets back in the swing of things.
I like the Washington Redskins to go into Pittsburgh.
That ain't the name no more that ain't the name.
No more football team to go into his Bergen cover and lose the game 24 20.
I think I think the almost added to I think the football team can cover.
I think they could win.
I mean, that that defense is is legit.
They got a good running game, but Dupri out for the season.
That's a big loss for Pittsburgh, and I mean the Steelers off who they are that is not pushing the ball downfield.
They got good receivers.
He's throwing the ball short.
They're possessing their possessing the clock, possessing the ball and doing just enough to win every week.
It's gonna buy them one week.
You know, I don't know if the Washington team is the team that is going to do it to him, but they're not going 16, you know, and, uh, but I definitely like the Washington football team to cover.
But I will say Ben at home is better than that on the road so they could cover just because of that defense.
But I like Washington by Washington.
Yeah, riverboat riverboat.
This game, this interesting line for this game.
Niners minus one at home against the bills coming in this Monday night.
And, uh, you would think that the bills would be a favorite, but bills, you know, having traveling West neutral site.
They're playing in Arizona.
Hunters right there playing Arizona of the bill.
Just lost on everyone on the hair.
So bad memories.
So who knows what the 40 Niners were coming together? That team is well coached.
A lot of continuity over there.
I like the 40 Niners this week to keep it rolling.
I, like the 49 Thio, keep it rolling all the way into the playoffs.
They circulated making office and get a wild card spot.
If you play San Francisco in the playoffs, that's all I got to say that one.
But they do come out Monday night and get a victory over the Buffalo Bills, and they win 27 21.
Wow, there's a lot going on there.
We got Niners in the playoffs.
I don't know about all that.
They're definitely well, there.
Definitely, Well coached.
They just don't have a lot of talent, so I mean, they shouldn't be the ramps, you know, it was ugly game, but they won.
They can beat the Bills. Josh Islands.
You never know what you're gonna get from him.
Bills Defense has been playing better, but I mean, Vegas knows if it's if it's a one point game.
Vegas knows something, so I'm kind of inclined to take the Niners.
I don't think they make the playoffs.
So they still got Nick Molins playing Q B.
That ain't that, ain't it? I don't care who you got arrested team is. They still got Nick Mullins.
But I'm going with Vegas on this one.
They know something.
So I like the Niners.
I mean, yeah, Shanahan, too.
Well, Coach, Probably maybe the best external coach in the league right up there.
Oh, he's up there most definitely.
And then this game, What is this game? It's the two.
They got the schedule for Tuesday.
As of now, Trace McSorley is the starting Q B uh, and they got a Ravens minus 7.5.
I'm assuming there they got Lamar playing if it's at 7.5.
But you just not enough info for me, for this one.
Yeah, not enough for me either. Stay away.
Not targeting it.
Not touching it at all.
I don't even know right now.
If anything who know E? I don't know.
I don't know. I would just stay away Game for me.
The only thing I would say is, you know, if you find out Lamar is not playing and you could sneak in a plus 7.
5 of the cowboys do that.
I mean, if you could get get seven a half a trace McSorley plan do that.
But, you know, that's gonna be hard to do.
Yeah, it will be So.
I mean, you have a couple more days, though.
Get extra days, toe gather information.
So you'll be, uh if you want to bet on that game, just wait for the information to come out and then take your pick.
But as of right now, if Lamar doesn't play step in half, that sounds like the best play.
If not for sure, it could be ugly game, though.
It could be ugly one.
So all right, that's a slate.
Not super excited.
But there's some stuff that that we like, we 13, you know.
Like I said, we'll be back with our best best in a minute.
I'm gonna stay hot. Keep winning.
Slept on sports.
Underscore NFL picks.
I'll post the best best there on I g every week.
Check us out on YouTube tube, you know, appreciate.
We 13 13 in the books.
