No games thrill me this week. And I am not too excited about even finishing this column since I am currently watching game 7 of the 1960 World Series. So I am going to keep this short. Just as an aside Bob Prince is so lucid and such a great announcer that it almost ruins my memories of his rambling ways when he was older. The Pirates are winning 4-0 in the 3rd with the Yankees on their third pitcher. This game would have been brutal to watch live knowing what unfolds. Until the euphoria of the sudden end.
home team in bold
Best BetTampa Bay Buccaneers (-5.5) over Detriot Lions
Bucs failed to cover for me last week despite winning. They usually play close games. But the Lions are so much better at home than on the road.
OthersCincinnati Bengals (-1.5) over Cleveland Browns
For some reason I think the Bengals are due.
Oakland Raiders (-6.5) over Denver Broncos
Not sure how the Raiders will react to last week's tough loss that basically knocked them out of playoff consideration. But the Broncos suck. Especially on the road.
