"Best" Bet (plus two)

December 26, 2012 by Steel Haven

Undefeated for the first time since November 14th. If I can do it again then I will top .500 for the season.

Three games are off the board. Another two are at least 16 point spreads with a total of four double digit spreads. In the unpredictable 17th week taking either team in those matchups would seem like a stab in the dark praying for a backdoor cover (or not). So here are my guesses for the final week with the caveat that seven games were not or could not be considered.

home team in bold

Best Bet

New Orleans Saints (-5.0) over Carolina Panthers

Cam Newton and the Panthers have been playing better. For some reason I just get the feeling the Saints would really like to finish at .500 in their lost season.


Chicago Bears (-3.0) over Detriot Lions

Lions are losers of seven straight and the Bears need to win.

Washington Redskins (-3.0) over Dallas Cowboys

Can RGIII really take the 'Skins from worst to first? The belief that Tony Romo or Jason Garrett will do something stupid obviously makes this selection easier.

Last Week

Indianapolis Colts (-6.5) over Kansas City Chiefs WIN

Chicago Bears (-5.5) over Arizona Cardinals WIN

Washington Redskins (-5.5) over Philadelphia Eagles WIN

Year to Date: 23-25  Best Bets: 7-9
