A best bet win. Two in the last three weeks for those counting. I won’t get too cocky. Even a blind squirrel occasionally finds a nut. My loss was the Redskins in a game which was supposed to predict the election. Redskins win, the party in control of the White House remains in control. Redskins lose, the other party takes the presidency. So much for meaningless coincidence.
Ten days after Sandy with some people I know still lacking power and it is snowing outside in Central Jersey due to a nor’easter. I just want to crawl under the covers and hibernate until spring.

home team in bold
Indianapolis Colts (-3.5) over Jacksonville Jaguars
Déjà vu. Last week I won by betting against the Jags at home giving 3.5 points. Why not try again? Plus I need a reason no matter how tenuous to tune in on Thursday night.
New England Patriots (-12.0) over Buffalo Bills
Bill Belichick had two weeks to prepare for Chan Gailey. I’m not sure he really needed more than two minutes.
New York Giants (-4.5) over Cincinnati Bengals
Tom Coughlin and the Giants are champions for a reason. Marvin Lewis and the Bengals are not for a reason. I expect a big bounce back for the Giants in Cincinnati against the free falling Bengals.
Detriot Lions (-3.5) over Jacksonville Jaguars WIN
Washington Redskins (-3.0) over Carolina Panthers LOSS
Baltimore Ravens (-4.0) over Cleveland Browns WIN
Year to Date: 9-18 Best Bets: 2-7
