Looking at this week’s slate of games, there are three 1pm games that prove interesting to the system I use, when the line is encouraging you to go one way, take the opposite. The first game is the New Orleans Saints versus the Carolina Panthers in New Orleans. The Saints are favored by 10. To me this would want you to take the Panthers with double digits. Those lines are usually reserved for the Patriots. The Saints are going to cover. The Panthers are just that bad. Drew Brees is back and gearing up for the playoffs. So any teams in the way are just practice for him now. Watch for Brees to light it up with at least 4 touchdowns and the Saints torch the Panthers.
In another 1pm battle, the Bears are taking on the Giants in Chicago. Da Bears are favored by 6. In a game where neither offense likes to score you should look to take the points. This looks like another line that just isn’t enough but Vegas is hoping it is high enough to grab you. This game has 17-7. Or 17-10 at best written all over it. Da Bears will control the ball at home and also the outcome. I am not a fan of the Bears offense but it seems the pieces just fit. They too are looking to make a playoff run in a conference where 10-6 probably won’t be a wild card. So you have to win the games against worse teams and this is one of those.
The last game for Sunday is also 1pm and it is the Eagles at home against the Seahawks. The Eagles are favored, hmmm, by 1 in this game. This means that if played on a neutral field that the Seahawks, right now, are only a 2 point favorite against the Birds. Hard to believe Harry. This is screaming at you to take the Seahawks and that is why the Eagles are the play. Remember all those sayings your parents had, no free lunch, if it looks to good to be true, it probably is. Well with the way the teams are playing, to say the Seahawks should be getting a point in Philly just doesn’t make sense. The Seahawks are cruising, the Eagles are getting ready to bail out the ship. Let’s hope, that we here in Philly are chasing the Seahawks back to Seattle at 5 o’clock tomorrow.
