"Best" Bet (plus two)

December 19, 2012 by Steel Haven

I started strong on Thursday night. Purple Jesus kept the momentum going by shredding the Rams. I had an undefeated week in my grasp. Then I got the Dirty Sanchez in prime time as he tried to one up his buttfumble performance on Thanksgiving night. I should have known better.

The road continues to call. Three more away teams as the regular season winds down, all favorites unlike last week.

Best Bet

Indianapolis Colts (-6.5) over Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs just got shut out by the Raiders, the worst scoring defense in the league entering last week. Enough said.


Chicago Bears (-5.5) over Arizona Cardinals

The Bears are losers of five of their last six after a 7-1 start. This is the week for them to break out of their slump. The Cardinals ended their own 9 game losing streak last week thanks to Lions turnovers. The continued abysmal QB play of Ryan Lindley (and the rest of their QBs) makes sustained success unlikely.

Washington Redskins (-5.5) over Philadelphia Eagles

Late season divisional matchups can be tricky. The reeling Eagles will be looking to play spoiler on a long work week. I obviously don't like their chances whether RGIII or Kirk Cousins is behind center.

Last Week

Cincinnati Bengals (-4.5) over Philadelphia Eagles WIN

New York Jets (+1.5) over Tennessee Titans LOSS

Minnesota Vikings (+3.0) over St. Louis Rams WIN

Year to Date: 20-25  Best Bets: 6-9
