While the Cleveland Browns have a favorable matchup in Week 8, we take a look at some great bets to make on other games around the NFL.
If you think that falling interest in the NFL is just a “Believeland” phenomenon, think again.
Even former Browns QB Brady Quinn is making a comeback, this time as an announcer.
Check out the once Browns former savior — he’s articulate, insightful and funny. Too bad former the Browns traded a first-round draft choice for him just so Quinn could get a grad school education in sports broadcasting while throwing INTs for his close-enough to hometown team.
Makes me feel a whole lot better about having another win one, lose one handicapping week with betting against “weak teams on mini-rolls” (Buffalo and Minny) cashing in, while the Landry Jones-led Steelers couldn’t stay with the Pats and Joe Flacco‘s Ravens failing against the lowly J-E-T-S, but only after Geno Smith went down with a torn ACL. I feel bad for Smith, but he was not going to beat my “Super Lock” Ravens.
Guarantee: Three teams from the AFC North aren’t going to the playoffs this year.
Hopefully the Indians won’t be playing for their World Series lives Sunday night, and here’s this week’s tips — all dogs — for spending the hours leading off to the first pitch at Wrigley Field. Or better yet, spend some time doing good for someone else:
- Bills +7 vs. Pats — If Belichick/Brady keep rolling, the NFL should just concede them the AFC.
- Colts +2.5 vs. KC — Andrew Luck‘s game winner last week spoiled my fantasy dream that he’d be shipped to Cleveland for all the Browns draft choices. (I’d do it in a heartbeat, would you?)
- San Diego +5 at Denver — Like Michael Corleone, just when Charger fans think they’re out, they keep getting pulled back in.
- ‘Iggles + 4.5 at ‘Boys — The one Sunday Night match-up that might top Cubs-Tribe TV ratings, simply because the NFL is the NFL.
Last week 2-2. Season record 12-16.
