DT Report – Epic Picks – Thursday Night Edition

The last couple of weeks yours truly has been out of the office and therefore unable to make picks. Sorry about that, didn’t receive to many complaints though, and honestly, my personal picks weren’t that good. But it’s time to get back on track here and post a pick in tonights matchup for the Cincinnati Bengals vs the Miami Dolphins. The Bengals are minus 3.

We are taking the Bengals and laying the points here. Miami played very well for 2.5 quarters against New England last week, but were unable to close the deal. This week, one of their offensive linemen, Martin, got his feelings hurt and left the team. This is not good for Miami and the Bengals defense is one of the best in the NFL. The Bengals do play different away from home, but I am counting on them playing more like they did against the Jets last week, rather than how they played the few weeks before that. Lay the points here and take the Bengals.

1,000′s of Tickets Still Available for World Series Games 6 & 7 At Fenway Park

The Boston Red Sox are looking to close out the St Louis Cardinals and win their 3rd championship in 10 years. So much for the curse of the Bambino. Last night the Red Sox won 3 – 1 behind the outstanding pitching of Jon Lester to take a 3 – 2 series lead in the 2013 World Series. On Wednesday night the Red Sox will throw John Lackey against super rookie Michael Wacha.

John Lackeys stats this season 10 – 13 with a 3.52 ERA and 161 strike outs. Michael Wacha brings in a 4 – 1 record with a 2.78 ERA. John Lackey knows a little bit about being a rookie in the World Series having pitched for the Angels in Game 7 of the 2002 World Series against Barry Bonds and the San Francisco Giants. Says Lackey “Ya I know what it’s like, I hope he doesn’t have the same success I did that night.” Wacha is all nails though commenting that “It’s just another game to me, I am going to pitch my game and see if they can hit me, no different than any other night.” Right Mike, no different than any other night.

DT Report – Epic Picks Week 6

Holy moly, I need to stay away from the Thursday game. I think whatever I am picking, just do the opposite. That feels right at this point since we have lost 3 Thursday games in a row. We are 17 – 10 on the season though over all, well over 62%. Sunday morning picks coming up –

Pittsburgh Steelers vs New York Jets at Metlife Stadium (Pick Jets -1)Compare Jets Ticket Prices Here - Who is the worst team in the NFL not considering Jacksonville? It might be Pittsburgh. There line is a mess, Big Ben is completely out of sorts with Todd Haley, and the defense is looking very average. The Jets on the other hand, picked to be one of the worst teams in the league have a 3 – 2 record and seem to be getting better each week. In my opinion, Geno Smith turned the corner last week, and the interception issues are subsiding. Yes, the Steelers are coming off a bye, and the Jets are on a short week. I just can’t pick the Steelers until they show me a little bit more.

Carolina Panthers vs the Minnesota Vikings at Mall of America Stadium (Pick Carolina +2.5)Compare Minnesota Vikings Tickets and Save! – Terrible news about Adrian Peterson’s son, just horrible. It looks though as if Adrian Peterson will play anyway. That is bad news for the Panthers. The good news for the Panthers? Matt Cassel will be getting the start, and the Panthers defense plans on eating him up. The Vikings quarterback position is just a mess between Christian Ponder and Matt Cassel. Cam Newton has been playing a lot better of late as well. He is on a mission to prove he can be a franchise quarterback. If that is the case, then he needs to start here with a win. Take the 2.5 and bet Carolina.

Green Bay Packers vs Baltimore Ravens at M&T Stadium (Pick Packers -3)Compare Baltimore Ravens Ticket Prices – With Clay Matthews out, the Green Bay defense is going to need to step up and fill a huge gap, I think they can do it though. This game should be high scoring, between Rodgers and Flacco against so so defenses, especially Green Bay. The reason I like the Packers in this game is because of Rodgers and the amount of points I think they will score. Basically, I think the Packers will out score the Ravens today, and the defense will be able to make enough plays to cover this line. Lay the 3 points in this game.

DT Report – TNF Pick – Giants at Bears

OK, 4 and 2 last week including Thursday and Monday night football. That takes the record to 17 – 9. The Chargers and Browns both tripped us up, honestly I am scratching my head on each. Really more so when it comes to the Chargers, that game was plain ugly if you are them, maybe it was the late start, or maybe it’s cause the Bolts are who we thought they were. Either way, that loss in Oakland in inexcusable. Yes, those rivalry games are always closer than expected, but close would have been at least 5 points in that game. If the Chargers don’t completely get in there own way, they probably win by that amount, but they didn’t and were left with a massive 4th quarter deficit that is to tough to overcome in the NFL, even today’s offensive friendly NFL. Thursday’s pick –

New York Giants vs Chicago Bears at Soldier Field (Pick Bears – 7.5) – Compare Bears ticket prices – The Giants defense is averaging a robust 36.4 pts against this season, while the Bears offense is averaging exactly 29.0 pts. Jay Cutlers over reliance on Brandon Marshal is a bit of a concern going forward, but Eli Manning reliance on throwing picks is even more. Until the Giants prove they can do anything, especially on a short week, and on the road we are going with the Bears in this one.

DT Report – Monday Night Football – Jets at Falcons

OK, so we missed on the Chargers yesterday, but we did get 2 W’s, to bring the record on the season to 16 – 9, or 65%. Things have been going pretty smoothly with the picks this year. We are well over .500, and close to 66%. On to tonight’s game.

New York Jets vs Atlanta Falcons at Georgia Dome (Pick Jets +10) Compare Atlanta Falcons Ticket Prices – The entire public is on the Falcons, but when a line is this skewed (10 points or more) you have to take the points. Even with Geno Smith on the road in the Georgia Dome where Matt Ryan and company are dangerous. The Jets defense is doing well, the Atlanta Falcons look lost this season. I am laying the points.
