Best Bets (plus two)

December 22, 2010 by Steel Haven

An over .500 week. Unfortunately the loss was on my best bet. The Bucs screwed me for a second straight week. I still can't believe they couldn't handle the Lions in Tampa. Kudos to Detroit for breaking their league record 26 game road losing streak a week after breaking their 19 game division losing streak.

Can't believe there are only two weeks left. I have barely kept my head above water all season. I both despair for the end of the season when there will be no more football to watch. And rejoice at not having to come up with reasons to pick games for this column.

Best Bet

Indianapolis Colts (-3.0) over Oakland Raiders

I can't see Peyton Manning giving up his tenuous hold on the division lead after last week's win over the Jaguars. Collie or no Collie.


Baltimore Ravens (-3.5) over Cleveland Browns

I'm rooting for the Browns. The only reason this isn't my best bet. I just don't see it.

Dallas Cowboys (-6.5) over Arizona Cardinals

Garrett has given the Cowboys a reason to play. Home, away, Derek Anderson, Max Hall, John Skelton.... Doesn't matter. The Cardinals are just awful.

Last Week

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-5.5) over Detriot Lions LOSS

Cincinnati Bengals (-1.5) over Cleveland Browns WIN

Oakland Raiders (-6.5) over Denver Broncos WIN

Year to date: 23-20-2   Best bets: 7-7-1
