Lock City: Week 9 NFL Picks

Denver Broncos (4-3) at Cincinnati Bengals (3-4)

With these teams looking to be moving in opposite directions this line looks to be a trap, but I will take the bait as I look for the Broncos backs to take advantage of the Bengals suspect defense.

Miggles Pick – Denver – 5


Carolina Panthers (1-6) at Washington Redskins (3-5)

I see a lot of exciting offense and this one could be a shootout so I look for this one to soar over the total and Ill take this Skins here to keep Obama in office.  “Redskins Rule” Google it.

Miggles Pick – OVER  48 and Skins – 3


Pittsburgh Steelers (4-3) at NY Giants (6-2)

This should be a good one and what could be a Super Bowl preview, but the Giants have the edge here as their strengths play more into the Steelers’ weaknesses with the pass rush and Pittsburgh’s vulnerability in the secondary.

Miggles Pick – Giants – 3.5


Dallas Cowboys (3-4) at Atlanta Falcons (7-0)

This could be an up and down game if Dallas can protect the ball, which hasn’t been to easy for them as of late. Next to the Broncos who have a talented defense, by far, the Cowboys defense will be the best the Falcons offense has faced so far this season.

Miggles Pick – Boys +4



Lock City: Week 10 College Football Picks

We are a blistering hot 22 – 9 – 2 the past 6 weeks and looking to keep the momentum going with what we feel might be a very strong day for us.  

Virginia Cavaliers (2-6) at North Carolina State Wolfpack (5-3)

Even with two weeks to prepare I don’t think Virginia can fix the problems they have, especially on offense. NC State’s offense, led by Glennon, will be too much for UVA to handle AND their offense won’t be able to keep up. I’m laying the points and taking the Wolfpack.

Miggles Pick – State – 10.5

Oregon Ducks (8-0) at Southern Cal Trojans (6-2)

Oregon is on their path to the National Championship Game. The Trojans have looked inconsistent and appear out of the picture. The Ducks should lay it on USC so with the line as low as it is I’ll take the bait.

Miggles Pick – Oregon – 8.5

Clemson Tigers (7-1) at Duke Blue Devils (6-3)

Clemson has been good to us this year and after Duke got dominated by FSU’s offense, I dont see them being able to stop the Tiger’s  offense either this week. I have to go with the road favorite in this one, as once again I believe Clemson rolls and wins by at least three touchdowns.

Miggles Pick – Clemson – 12.5

Alabama Crimson Tide (8-0) at LSU Tigers (7-1)

“This is Death Valley this is truly a place where opponents dreams come to die” Les Miles

This game looks like a defensive battle just like both games last year and look for this one to come in under AND like always when we see a defensive battle we take the points and the home dog.

Miggles Pick – LSU + 8.5 and UNDER 40

Lock City: Week 9 College Football Picks

We are a white hot 19-5-2 in the last 5 weeks with the kids.  Lets hope we can keep the streak going and make some more money.  Good luck!


North Carolina State Wolfpack (5-2) at North Carolina Tar Heels (5-3)

UNC  may have the more talented team, but they are too inconsistent to lay more than a touchdown in a rivalry game. I’m taking the points in a game that may come down to the last possession.

Miggles Pick – NC State +7.5


Michigan State Spartans (4-4) at Wisconsin Badgers (6-2)

The Spartans do have a solid defense, which I think can keep things close for awhile, but Wisconsin is the better team and should get the late cover.

Miggles Pick – Wisconsin – 5.5


Ohio State Buckeyes (8-0) at Penn State Nittany Lions (5-2)

Penn State looks to be the play here as they are always tough at home, and I just think PSU is playing as well, if not better than anyone in the conference right now.

Miggles Pick – Penn State – 1


Notre Dame Fighting Irish (7-0) at Oklahoma Sooners (5-1)

The Irish will lean on their defense to try and slow down an Oklahoma offense who is on a roll right now. The problem I see here is will Notre Dame score enough to keep this one close.  I’m going with the hot team and laying the points.

Miggles Pick – Oklahoma – 11


Mississippi State Bulldogs (7-0) at Alabama Crimson Tide (7-0)

Mississippi State hasnt really played anyone,  but at the same time they haven’t lost yet nor played poorly and might be getting just a few too many points here so the play is talking the three TD’s.

Miggles Pick – Mississippi State +23

Lock City: Monday Night Football Pick


Detroit Lions (2-3) at Chicago Bears (4-1)

Detroit’s aerial attack isn’t at all what it was last year.  Opponents have been able to figure it out with much greater success this season and the Bears defense seems to be the real deal.  Add in the Soldier Field crowd and the extra week of prep and I think the Bears cover this easily.

Miggles Pick – Bears – 6.5

Lock City: Week 7 NFL Picks

7-2 this week and looking to keep the momentum going with our nemesis the NFL.

Washington Redskins (3-3) at NY Giants (4-2)

Divisional games are usually tough and close and while I think the Giants get the win, I have the Redskins covering the spread.

Miggles Pick – Skins + 6.5

Baltimore Ravens (5-1) at Houston Texans (5-1)

Sure both teams are missing key defensive players but by no means does that mean they are weak defensively and this total looks far to aggressive to the high side and I look for this game to come in under the total which is in the high 40’s.

Miggles Pick – UNDER 46

Arizona Cardinals (4-2) at Minnesota Vikings (4-2)

The Vikings are just too explosive for the Cardinals limping offense to keep up with here. This one may get ugly fast. I’m on the Vikings here.  My Strongest play 

Miggles Pick – Vikes – 7
NY Jets (3-3) at New England Patriots (3-3)
Patriots will get down field in a hurry in this one and with the Pats D always being a question, I see this one going over easily.
Miggles Pick – OVER 47

Lock City: Thursday Night College, NFL Picks

A little Thursday night mix:

Oregon Ducks (6-0) at Arizona State Sun Devils (5-1)

Arizona State’s defense  AND offense will have to play much better than they did last week.  Although the Ducks have not really been tested in a hostile environment like ASU yet this year, I think they answer the call and lay it on (like normal) them.

Miggles Pick – Oregon -8

Seattle Seahawks (4-2) at San Francisco 49ers (4-2)

This one sets up to be a physical game and look for points to be tough to come by.   With that I look for Seattle to build off of its momentum from last week and to be a good test for the niners

Miggles Pick – Seattle +8

Lock City: Week 6 NFL Picks

Just to pre-curse this Lock City, we we have gone 12-3-1 the past three weeks in College only to give ALLLL back on Sundays.  To the point my own family (uncle) has taken the stance to bet opposite of my NFL picks.  Which makes me start to believe the books really do always come out on top.  If you believe otherwise you should probably just stop reading now.

NOW we are 4- 11 the past 3 weeks in the NFL….eeek, so I took special care on delivering you these gems.  Again, read at your own risk, but Im hot and right on this week!  Choose wisely uncle John….choose wisely.

NY Giants (3-2) at San Francisco 49ers (4-1)

Look for this one to be a playoff style of game and for the running game and defense to play a major role making it a lower scoring game that falls under the total.  With the game taking that tone, Im taking the points as the Giants are playing decent football right now.

Miggles Pic – UNDER 47 and Giants +7

Oakland Raiders (1-3) at Atlanta Falcons (5-0)

This is a lot tougher game than many would think as the Raiders are coming off of the bye, are well rested, and have had a chance to regroup with the personnel changes. Atlanta has been bruising it out and though they can make it look easy, but we all know nothing is easy in the NFL.  Any given Sunday and facts stated above, we are taking the points here.

Miggles Pick OVER 49 and Raiders +9.5

Detroit Lions (1-3) at Philadelphia Eagles (3-2)

Eagles dont turn it over today, those days are behind them as they lay it on Detroit.  Eagles D will play a big part in this game as Detroit cant run the ball and will lean heavily on their passing game.  Which plays into the Eagles hands as they can get away with just rushing four with great success.  I still do see this one going over.

Miggles Pick – OVER 47 and Eagles – 3.5

Minnesota Vikings (4-1) at Washington Redskins (2-3)

Minnesota for some reason still isnt getting much respect here.  Redskins are overrated and RGIII isnt at full strength.  I see this one as a gift and will be my strongest play of the day.

Miggles Pick – Minnesota -1

Green Bay Packers (2-3) at Houston Texans (5-0)

Green Bay is in a do or die circumstance here as they will fall out of Superbowl discussions if they slip to 2-4. Aaron Rodgers gives the Packers offense an edge but the loss of Jermichael Finley and Cedric Benson could be too much to overcome especially with the dynamic Texans offense going to town on the Packers secondary. Coming off a tough road loss and into another difficult road game doesn’t bode well for the Packers especially with the Texans looking to prove themselves against the league’s best.

Miggles Pick – Houston – 3.5

Lock City: Week 6 College Football Picks

Lock City was a solid 4-2 in College last week and 9-3 the past 2 weeks…..once again to give it all back with the NFL, but lets keep making that money with the kids.

North Carolina Tar Heels (4-2) at Miami Hurricanes (4-2)

Miami has won the previous two meetings, including last year in Chapel Hill. I believe Miami will bounce back strong at home, they may lose a close one, but I’ll take the points with the home dog.
Miggles Pick – Miami +7.5

Stanford Cardinal (4-1) at Notre Dame Fighting Irish (5-0)

The Cardinal are worse than they were last year and the Irish are much improved in 2012.  Notre Dame is finally back in the talks for BCS and a double digit win at home against Stanford solidifies that.  Ill take the Irish here.

Miggles Pick – Notre Dame – 7

South Carolina Gamecocks (6-0) at LSU Tigers (5-1)

This should be a defensive battle and getting points in a game where points may be tough to come by is a solid choice.

Miggles Pick South Carolina +3

Louisville Cardinals (5-0) at Pittsburgh Panthers (2-3)

Pitt’s run game and defense leave a lot to be desired.  Louisville is undefeated and while their previous two road games have been a bit shaky, they have gotten the wins.  I like Louisville D to have a good game plan after a bye week, Louisville by a TD.

Miggles Pick – Louisville – 3


Lock City: NFL Week 5 Picks

Arizona Cardinals (4-0) at St. Louis Rams (2-2)

What a miserable game this is.  Its a Thursday nighter so I figured I’d put my two cents in.  Arizona basically has one player on their team and that’s Larry Fitzgerald.  St. Louis runs their offense through their kicker.  The under is set a little low, but I kinda like it.  My stronger play here is the Cards though.  They stay undefeated and cover.

Miggles Pick – Cards – 2.5

Atlanta Falcons (4-0) at Washington Redskins (2-2)

Skins gives up an avg 320 yards a game through the air, which bodes pretty well for the high flying falcons.  RGIII and the up and coming Robert Morris aren’t slouches either and I see this one being a shoot out for sure.  Each of these teams together have avg’d 56 points per game and I don’t see that trend stopping anytime soon.  OVER

Miggles Pick – OVER 50

Baltimore Ravens (3-1) at Kansas City Chiefs (1-3)

Although the Chiefs are tough to play at home, their inability to hold on to the football and the Ravens incredible ability to cause turnovers makes this an easy one for me.  I see this line too low and Ravens cover easily.

Miggles Pick – Ravens -5

Cleveland Browns (0-4) at NY Giants (2-2)

The Browns are pretty bad Weeden is even worse.  That being said I think they fight in this one as they don’t want to drop to 0-5.  A wise person once told me, “the funny thing about betting the NFL, these are all professionals that were at some point drafted and sought after because of their talents.”  This creates the tremendous parody we have in the league today.  The Browns do lose this one, but I don’t think without a fight.

Miggles Pick – Browns +10

Denver Broncos (2-2) at New England Patriots (2-2)

The Pats D keeps Denver in this one and Peyton Manning is  tough to bet against to lose, but to cover 7 points I’ll take it even more and twice on Sundays.  Get it?  Forget it.

Miggles Pick Denver +7

Lock City: College Football Week 6 Picks

Ok so last weekend we went 5-1 in college!  Only to give it all back on Sunday. Damn you NFL!

20 – 17 – 2

Southern Cal Trojans (3-1) at Utah Utes (2-2)

The Trojans won away their away games last year by 21, 14, 25 and 3 points. The fact that Arizona blew the doors off the Utes also has me concerned for Utah.  Although a home dog here I’m laying the points as I see USC still believing they have something to prove.

Miggles Pick – USC – 13

Arkansas Razorbacks (1-4) at Auburn Tigers (1-3)

Arkansas is 0-7 against the spread in their last seven road games and 0-4 against the spread in their last four games overall.  I’m not a big trend guy, but they kind of stink and playing in Auburn I just don’t see them covering one more time.

Miggles Pick Auburn – 9.5

Virginia Tech Hokies (3-2) at North Carolina Tar Heels (3-2)

North Carolina has dominated at home and lost two very close games on the road.  I don’t see a Virginia Tech team that has not even come close to living up to the hype pulling this one out either.

Miggles Pick – UNC -1.5

Arizona Wildcats (3-2) at Stanford Cardinal (3-1)

Stanford has been touch and go this season.  Started off slow with a squeaker vs San Jose State, then crushed Duke, took down USC and got upset by Washington.  I think they rise to the occasion here to a much inferior team who couldn’t put a point up against Oregon and I honestly think Stanford has a better D than Oregon.

Miggles Pick – Stanford – 12

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (2-3) at Clemson Tigers (4-1)

Clemson has been high flying as of late and Georgia Tech’s defense is putrid.  This is definitely a bad match up for the Yellow Jackets and I see them getting spanked here in Death Valley.  Clemson by 3 TD’s or more and the over is the play here.

Miggles Pick – Clemson – 10 and OVER 73

Guy Turns $5 Bet Into $725,000

Gino DiFelice of Brantford, Ontario, turned a $5 bet into $725,254 when he picked the correct winners of 15 NFL games a last week, with that 15th win (heres the kicker) being the Seattle Seahawks. How bad was he losing his shit when it was up in the replay booth for review? Anyway nice job Gino….you piece of shit.

Oh and apparently it was his 12 year old daughter’s idea to pick Seattle. If that was my daughter and that call got overturned, Im pretty sure I would be in jail. BUT it didnt so nice job too Susie!


Lock CIty: Week 5 College Football Picks

Ok Ok so we moved up to 16-11-2 this week.  Looking to extend this mini winning streak today with some strong picks.

North Carolina State Wolfpack (3-1) at Miami Hurricanes (3-1)

NC State and Miami will wage in an ACC battle of two 3-1 teams in Miami today. Miami is  2-0 in conference play while the Wolfpack will be playing their first ACC game of the year. NC State’s run defense hasn’t been very good this year, and Miami will look to pound the ball all day long against a weak front seven. Im gonna side with the home team in this one and lay the 2 points, in a game that could be a shootout if the defenses don’t step up.

Miggles Pick – Miami – 2

Ohio State Buckeyes (4-0) at Michigan State Spartans (3-1)

This line started out as a pick’em game, and since has moved to MSU -2. I think there is some value here with the Buckeyes as OSU is a better team than they showed us last week.  I think the Spartans are the inferior team here and Im guessing being at home has made this line what it is.  +2 points is a gift and Im taking Ohio State in the outright win.

Miggles Pick = Ohio State +110

Clemson Tigers (3-1) at Boston College Eagles (1-2)

Clemson has won three of the last four meetings between the two schools. If Clemson upset Florida State, this would set up as a game that the Tigers may look over and take lightly. However, coming off that tough loss I think the Tigers will come out hot and ready to run the Eagles off their own field. Boston College has had two weeks to prepare, but all the time in the world couldn’t prepare the Eagles defense for Clemson’s offensive weapons. Boston College may score over 20 points, but I don’t see them slowing down the Tigers offense. I’ll lay the points with Clemson and my stronger play will be on the over as this will be another ACC shootout.

Miggles Pick – Clemson – 6.5 and OVER 59

Louisville Cardinals (4-0) at Southern Miss Golden Eagles (0-3)

Louisville, despite their sub-par showing against FIU, is a very solid team on both sides of the ball and a class above anyone else who has romped Southern Miss this season. I look for the Cardinals to run away with this one… This is my strongest play of the day.  LOCK

Miggles Pick – Cards – 11
