Lock City: Week 8 NFL Picks

Carolina Panthers (1-5) at Chicago Bears (5-1)

The Bears have put up some big numbers already this season, scoring 34 or more points in half of their games.  I actually think Jay Cutler being banged up has kept the line reasonable.  I like the Bears in this one…A LOT.

Miggles Pick – Bears – 7.5

Atlanta Falcons (6-0) at Philadelphia Eagles (3-3)

Philadelphia is a great team who hasn’t played well and is playing a great team who has played too well. Vick is definitely playing for his job in this one and what better way to break out than against his former team. Andy Reid is also 13 – 0 after a bye, I think he keeps that streak in tact here. My strongest play of the week

Miggles Pick – Eagles -3

Washington Redskins (3-4) at Pittsburgh Steelers (3-3)

I like the Skins to cover with a possibility of them taking the game outright. Pittsburgh has been squeaking by everyone of their wins this season. Definitely taking the points here.

Miggles Pick – Skins +4

Miami Dolphins (3-3) at NY Jets (3-4)
The Jets pulled out a close 23-20 overtime victory against the Dolphins earlier in the season in Miami. Since that loss though the Dolphins have lost just one game and have been in three very close match-ups. I like them to run all over the Jets and win this one outright.
Miggles Pick – Miami +1.5
NY Giants (5-2) at Dallas Cowboys (3-3)
I like the Giants to get redemption on the road after losing at home to Dallas to open the season. Look for the Giants to run the ball a lot and throw as many passes to tight ends as possible trying to take advantage of Sean Lee’s absence in the middle of the Dallas defense.
Miggles Pick – Giants – 2.5
New England Patriots (4-3) at St. Louis Rams (3-4)
Getting a touchdown with a home team in most cases in the NFL is a good starting point.  Rams aren’t necessarily the home team here, but they arent the road team either.  I like the points here as the Rams can keep games close.
Miggles Pick – Rams +7

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
