After an outstanding Week 14, we not stand above .500 in our locks and well over the break even mark overall. Just a note, these picks are generally made before the Thursday Night game and are not adjusted. So late breaking injury and Covid news tends to make my picks look either especially brilliant or downright awful.
Last Week: 10-4, Locks 4-1
Season 109-97-2, Locks 35-34-1
New England +2.5 @ Indianapolis - Have decided this week is not the time to fade the Patriots. Philadelphia -4.5 v. Washington - It is possible that Washington could be down to its third string quarterback this week. The Eagles might be the best of a mediocre lot vying for the NFC's No. 7 playoff spot. Jacksonville -3 v. Houston - The news of Urban Meyer's dismissal early Thursday makes this game my 16-point confidence play, the Jaguars will be fired up to win this one. Plenty of good tickets still available.
LA Rams -4.5 v. Seattle - The line has been adjusted to take into account the outbreak that has affected the Rams. But at home four and a half is a pretty good number. Tampa Bay -11 v. New Orleans - I like most of the teams who are double-digit favorites this week. Look for the Bucs to force Taysom Hill into a multitude of turnovers.
