Cincinnati +3 @ Houston
The worst part about this game is that it will result in one of these teams advancing in the playoffs.  Andy Dalton can’t pass against good defenses and T.J. Yates can’t pass.  I’ll be taking the under in this one.  As far as the [...]

MIKE KAYE
Week 17: 9-6 (60%) / Season: 158-84 (65%)
The first weekend of the playoffs is here. For those fans of teams who didn’t make the playoffs; there is always next season (trust me, I feel your pain). With the 49ers, Packers, Patriots, and Ravens all sitting at home, the wild cards do battle. This is probably [...]

MIKE KAYE
Season: 149-78 (66%) / Last Week: 9-6 (60%) /  Scott’s Pick: 5-8-1 (1-0)
It has finally arrived, Week 17. This has been quite the year, full of surprises, success stories, and failed hopes (I’m looking at you Philly and San Diego). The Texans and Lions join the playoffs for the first time in 12 years and a [...]

Houston -7 @ Indianapolis
The Colts got their win to avoid the imperfect season and have no reason to play hard and screw up their draft position.  Even if they wanted to, [...]

Season: 140-72 (66%)  /  Last Week: 8-7 (53%)  /  Scott’s Pick: 4-9-1 (0-1)
My poor, poor T.J. Yates. Apparently there is a Take it to the Bank curse. Anyway, the season is literally in the home stretch with 11 of 12 the playoff spots possibly being decided this weekend. We had quite the head-turning Week 16 and [...]

Dallas -7 @ Tampa Bay
The Cowboys have too much talent and too much on the line to blow this game.  I don’t feel good about it though.  How could you after [...]

Season: 132-65 (67%) /  Last Week: 12-3 (80%) /  Scott’s Pick: 4-8-1 (0-1)
Hope everyone enjoyed the last week of football, with another entry in the legend of Tim Tebow. With rookie QBs, the Packers undefeated, the Colts struggling to even get close to a victory and the aforementioned Tebow, it is hard to not to love [...]
