Fearle$$ football picks: Chargers -3 at home v. the Carolina Cams

LillyRobbins520-1I began the 2012 season with $50 of Monopoly money, and plan to fake bet a fake $10 spot on five college/pro games against the line to see how smart I am. Last season, I was plus $110. This season ...

A horrid week last weekend. Just awful. For the first time since I began this I posted an 0-for-5. I am down to plus-$40. A week like that shakes my confidence to its foundation.

Last week's picks
1. Titans at Colts (-5.5). COLTS. LOSS
2. Falcons (-3.5) at Panthers. FALCONS. LOSS
3. Dolphins at 49ers (-10). FISH. LOSS
4. Cardinals at Seahawks (-10) CARDINALS. LOSS
5. Ravens at Redskins (-2.5). RAVENS. LOSS

This week's picks
1. N.Y. Giants at Atlanta Falcons o/u 51.5: UNDER. Gonna be close on this.
2. Carolina Panthers at SD Chargers (-3): CHARGERS. Norv Ball is gett'n' done.
3. SF 49ers at NE Patriots (-5): PATRIOTS. May be playing the best of any team right now.
4. Indy Colts at Houston Texans (-9). TEXANS. Just changed my mind on this.
5. Jacksonville Jaguars at Miami Dolphins (-7.5) FISH. Only because the Jags stink.

You are blowing it. You are due for some wins but I don't see how you win more than 3 games this week and more likely how you win 2 games this week.

Good luck. I am not feeling your picks.

Texan thru & thru

Don't bet against the Colts...unless of course they are playing the Texans who are coming off an embarassing MNF loss to the Patriots; then bet the house on them...

Congratulations on an outstanding week, last week. I'm betting you improve on last week's effort.

I like your picks but I'm going to be a contrarian this weekend and take the 49ers. The Pats look like the best team in the league right now but I'm a Harbaugh fan. I'm going with my team from the west coast.

Jags stink; yes that is true but the Miami is lifeless. They have not played well except early in the season. I'd like to think the Jags, while under manned, will be able to cover the spread and maybe even surprise their hated rival.

chicken

if your picks are so 'fearle$$' then why do you use the spread????

Mac,

Congrats to you and your cracker-jack staff for finding the hottest of women to put on your site.

Great photo. I'm assuming it's one of your fans.

Dear Big Mac Blog Company,
You gotta start picking my Cowboys. You had a good week but it would have been better if you would have included a bold but predictable win by picking my squad from Big D.

I love your blog baby but you gotta start fresh'n it up and going large on my squad. I don't mind talking you up to my guys but you got to return me a solidz and start being good to our home town boyz; The NFL DALLAS COWBOYZ!

Keep up the good work. Start talking us up more and I'll make sure Santa visits you this year!

PLAYOFFS!! BABEEEE!!!!!!!!
