Taylor Heinicke’s Brain Fart Proves Costly

It’s doubtful that as a little boy growing up in Green Bay, Taylor Heinicke envisioned his NFL touchdown at Lambeau Field to look like what happened Sunday. After all, it didn’t end up being a touchdown at all. And ultimately, Heinicke’s antics cost his team very valuable points.

Heinicke thought he had scored a touchdown against Green Bay. Facing a third-and-goal on the Packers’ 3-yard line, Heinicke scrambled to his right and found himself with a wide-open path to the end zone. Acres of space to walk right in.

He inexplicably dove and then rolled into the end zone. Apparently for dramatic effect. He even did the Lambeau Leap after spotting a Washington fan in the crowd after he had “scored”.

Washington vs. Green Bay: Packers Suffer Fourth Straight Loss

The Redskins beat the Green Bay Packers, and soundly. Every Redskins player seemed to deliver their best possible performance. Kirk Cousins’ 375 yards and three touchdowns is an even bigger big deal when you realize that Robert Kelley also rushed for 137 yards and three scores in the same game (Click Here for the Updated Football Odds).
 
And then there was Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder, who delivered 116 yards and one touchdown, and 102 yards and one touchdown, respectively.  Read More

Week 6 NFL Picks

Once I get about five or six games into a season, I start to gamble with a little bit more fervor. After all, you have a much better sense of all 32 teams’ relative ability by this point.

I generally only gamble in two veins – football picks, and online casino games. So when I’m not trying my luck at netbet online casino games, I’m scouring over the weekly NFL odds, and looking for opportunity. My experiences are that just gambling every week for the sake of it, is not a worthwhile venture. So with an eye to actually winning, I offer you my four best options this week and a brief explanation of each:

Redskins (2-3) at Jets (3-1)
LINE: NY JETS by 6
Call me a homer, but I just don’t think the Jets deserve 6 points. The Redskins play solid defense, and the Ryan Fitzpatrick led Jets don’t really put the fear of God into anyone offensively, which just lessens the possibility of them winning by a touchdown. I struggle to see that happening regardless of the game’s result, so I’m taking Washington to cover.

Pick: Washington

Bengals (5-0) at Bills (3-2)
LINE: CINCINNATI by 4

Sometimes I let math run it’s course when I gamble and this is a case in point. It doesn’t even matter what I think about the game or the match-up, the line has just moved too much. This game opened as a straight pick-em in many venues, but due to the fact that the Bengals were getting the lion’s share of the action, the line moved four full points! Don’t overthink this or let your ego get in the way – the slide gave you four more points than you should get – take the Bills.

Pick: Buffalo

Patriots (5-0) at Colts (3-2)
LINE: NEW ENGLAND by 9.5

I have every confidence that the Patriots CAN cover whatever spread is put in front of them, especially against the Colts. Indianapolis may have won 3 times, but it was against the Texans, Titans and Jaguars. In their losses to the Bills and Jets, Indy lost by double digits. For your consideration, the Pats have won the last 4 match-ups by a combined score of 189-73 (45-7, 42-20, 43-22 and 59-24). That’s an average score of 47-18. Gulp. Bill Belichek won’t take his foot off their throats and this one will be ugly.

Pick: New England

Chargers (2-3) at Packers (5-0)
LINE: GREEN BAY by 10.5

In a complete about face, I struggle to see Green Bay covering double digits this week. The Chargers have covered 7 of the last 8 times after playing the Monday Night game and this week will be no different. Sure the Packers are going to win the game and remain undefeated, but 10.5 points is just an awful lot to give Phillip Rivers on any day.

Pick: San Diego

It doesn’t matter what I post here, you’re going to make decisions that you like. I chose these four games this week, because for me, they have the most up-side. Pop on over to NFL.com’s Game Center and pick up all of the latest information you need to make an informed decision about any game, and have fun!!

Hail!

Week 1: Top 4 Picks ATS

Well friends, here we are. You have waited almost nine full months for this Friday to come – the Friday before the first week of the season. Many of you will be spending the next 48 hours thinking about wagers for this week. After all, football and gambling go together like bacon and bacon.

With a full slate of 16 games, 15 if you take away the one that was played last night, there are plenty of meaty morsels for the Armchair Betting Warriors to sink his teeth into. But be forewarned, picking football winners in the first week of the NFL season is tough. You might have a better chance of winning money, playing mobile casino games at luckyadmiral.com.

Regardless, after looking through my options on NFL’s Game Center and narrowing the field considerably, I came up with what I think are the four most solid picks this week: Read More
