If I were a betting man……

Ok 3-2 to start the new year, not too shabby!
Let’s see if we can keep the good time rolling!

Seattle + 7 ½ at Green Bay: I don’t know if we will see a repeat of Matt Hasselback’s infamous “ were going to take the ball and were going to win” before throwing a pick for six in OT of their first round playoff game in the 2003 playoffs. Why? Because Seattle is going to win this game outright, the Packers have been a great story but Seattle is sneaky good and I think they match up well with Green Bay.

The spread on the Pats-Jags game is in my view a total trap. But under 50 seems strong as I think J’ville’s defense will slow down the Pats slightly. I see this one ending about 27-17.

San Diego + 9 ½ at Indy: The Chargers match up really well with the Colts and I would not be surprised if they win outright as outside of the Pats the Chargers really have been the 2nd best team in the AFC since about midseason.

Dallas -7 vs. NY Giants: Everybody has been jumping on the Giants bandwagon since Eli managed to finally show up somewhat in a playoff game. But Texas stadium is not Raymond James Stadium and the Cowboys have a whole lot more weapons. Plus I expect Dallas to come out firing on all cylinders. Sure T.O is a ‘game time’ decision, that just means not only will he play, but he will be good for about 12 catches for about 200yds and 3 TD’S.

Ok let’s pad our totals with a little college hoops action!

Charlotte -5 vs. Temple: Bobby Lutz’s boys tend to be on again off again, well it looks like the 49ers are closer to being on this season.

Tennessee -6 at South Carolina: UNC-Asheville went down to Columbia one week ago and stunned our neighbors south of the boarder. Now UNC-A is pretty good, just ask UNC, but look for Bruce Pearls boys to plunder the Gamecocks by double digits.

And for a sleeper selection San Diego -7 vs. San Francisco: Even though Eddie Sutton is a legend, I don’t trust any coach in an interim situation.
