I picked Houston last week to upset and the Jets to beat the Steelers the week before, Here is another Gem I truly believe will win su
Bengals ML+110(4 Units) I picked Houston Last week to Beat The Browns, This game will be different, The Browns had no tape of Mallet, He will be starting only his 2nd game, As I said last week his Cannon arm would open up the running game against the Browns and it did as Blue go 156 yards rushing, The Browns run a 3-4 defense, and seldom Blitzed, respecting that big arm... The Bengals play a 4-3 and will shut the run down today and will scheme the Defense for Mallet like he has not seen yet,Remember this is only his 2nd game.. They did a fantastic Job last week of shutting down the Saints running game and held Brees to 255 yards,They will place all the Pressure on Mallet to get the Job done, Mallet is pretty accurate on the Long balls and iffy on short intermediate throws..The Browns could not Run the ball well last week, But The Bengals will have success today,Hill had 152 yards last week against the Saints,Running back Giovani Bernard, who missed the last three games due to a hip pointer will be back in this game, those two together can be a force! Houston has Defensive back problems,Jonathan Joseph is not having a good year, he has a knee issue and his play this year is way down,In fact Joseph is cited by the Cincy papers as the player of choice for AJ Green. They note his near league high pass comp rate at over 92% per targets - also big is CB Kareem Jackson (knee) out...The Texans will have to continue to lean on undrafted rookie Andre Hal, who got absolutely torched by the Eagles before the open date..Watch for AJ Green today to have a sweet time...Here is icing on the cake..We tend to forget There are three phases to every football game, Special teams, We all have seen speacial teams make or break a ball game! Houston special teams are terrible! The Bengals held the Saints to 4 return yards last week....4!!! They got 83, Houston allowed the Browns 117 return yards Last week..
the Bengals 6-3-1 record this season is their play on special teams.
They excel in the return game. Cornerback Adam Jones averages 27.5 yards per kick return, fourth most in the NFL, and 11.6 yards per punt return, sixth most.
They handle business in the kicking game. Punter Kevin Huber averages 47.4 yards per punt, fourth most, and 45.5 yards net, the best in all of football.
As for their coverage unit — their 5.1 yards per punt return allowed this season this the third fewest in the game. Headlining there backup running back Cedric Peerman, whose plus-5.0 overall grade is tied for Pro Football Focus’ seventh-highest this season and whose eight special teams tackles are tied for 12th.
Cincinnati’s chomps on special teams .. something O’Brien is aware of, and has already mentioned to the media.
YTD 57-30(+57 Units)
About The Lions: The Lions really gave away the Greenbay game Sunday
with Bad coaching,They had a chance to seal the deal and went
conservative inside the Packs 10 yard line for a fg to go up 6...2 runs
and a pass..Titus Young was sent home from the Lions’ practice facility
Monday and coach Jim
Schwartz said he will not play in Thursday’s game against
the Texans as punishment for repeated selfish behavior that culminated
in Sunday’s 24-20 loss to the Packers... I gotta Chuckle at this as
Young is their most reliable receiver this year....Megahead is a
bust...Scott Lineham should be the one banished for this game as His
Lame ass Play calling lost the GB game....Lions are a mess.
Houston: I think This team Under Achieves, yes they are 9-1 but not
dominating some games,They will probably piddle around in this game
also, Houston's defense with Wade Phillips calling the shots vs Scott
Lineham..Should be a early Knockout but Detroit's defense with Gunther
Cunningham will play tough.
Scott Lineham vs Wade Phillips....This is a Mismatch, Lineham doesn't have a clue and Phillips is top Tier.
Dennison vs Gunther Cunningham...I'm not a big Rick Dennison fan, He
was a buddy hire by former teammate Head Coach Kubiac,Dennison was a
former Linebacker for Denver..jeez....Anyway Gunther is top Tier and
Dennison is average at best.
I think this will be close, With No
Titus young there is no way I'd bet Detroit, I may have considered it
but Young has been the key guy all year in clutch situations..
is a Moral issue with these Lions and the Coaches except Gunther suck
badly...Houstons defense has Knocked out the last two QB's they faced
and that dam alien Watts is unhuman...
Houston-3(2 units) I expect this to go 3' -4 soon....If I set lines this would be Houston-4
The Redskins:Well I watched this Philly Skins game Sunday and lol, What
a Terrible Coaching Job By Andy Reid... Anyway RG3 is the real deal and
The defense is getting somewhat better...The Coaching on the Skins
About Dallas: There really is no excuse for this
last game with Cleveland being close, The Offensive OC and head coach
Garrett is terrible,They have the talent, Defense and defensive coach
but man Garrett can't get these guys motivated and the Play calling and
Moral is Awful...
Jason Garrett vs DC Jim
Haslett.. Gotta give Haslett the edge here, Garrett is a Terrible
Motivator and game planner, Haslett called a Great Game Sunday Vs
Philly..Hasslett is quite capable and was the Steelers DC in 97-99 then
went to be the Saints Head Coach...Jason Garrett is Bottom Tier and
Haslett is above average.
Kyle Shanahan vs
Rob Ryan...well we all know how Kyle got his Job, But he is not a bad
play caller since RG3 arrived, Ryan is a great motivator but he has some
Mental slips during games... Edge goes to Ryan Kyle is below average, Rob is Above average.
think The Redskins with RG3 is gonna eat up the Dallas secondary,And I
don't see Romo and Garrett keeping up, RG3 Back in his old Stomping
Grounds will shine...simple as that.
Washington+3(2 units) Fascinating Dallas is a Favorite, If I set lines this would be a PK'em
Posting these alittle early for some discussion so feel free to spout off,These are Certainly Subject to be changed by game day,as I can be a flip flopper 3 days from now.
UNITS)Wyoming is first in the Mountain West with 31 turnovers. They
also lead the Mountain West in fumbles forced. Both of those are good
for the Pokes, who need to find a way to slow down Bernard Pierce,Will
Temple get winded as the game goes along? I think they may!
Albuquerque, N.M., is a little more than 5,000 feet above sea level....
Philly is approximately 445 feet above sea level,Laramie Wyoming, elevation above sea level
is about 7165 feet.... (WYO COACH)"I think our guys will be able to
perform better because it is lower than Laramie and we train there the
whole time" huff huff...puff puff for the Owls...Advantage
Cowboys...Cowboy quarterback Brett Smith. With 2495 passing yards and
18 touchdowns, he will be truly be the best quarterback on the field..
Cowboys will have alot More Fans at this game being a 12 hour drive
away...Temple has a Rookie coach and The Cowboys have a veteran coach,
Cowboys won this bowl SU 2 years ago as a 12' point dog...I'm really
surprised Temple is this big of a fav, Cowboys pass the ball very well
and also run it well, Temple is suspect in pass defense and I can see
this game going back and forth as Temple will run the football well,With
the layoff longer for temple they may be rusty and maybe sloppy with
Turnovers, Cowboys are ball hawking ,Like i said above,Wyoming is first
in the Mountain West with 31 turnovers. They also lead the Mountain
West in fumbles forced. Temple has no Business laying 7 in this game.

2units) Well, one question would be who's happy to be in the Potato
bowl? U st hasnt been in a bowl in 8 years so I'm sure they would be
happy to be even in the cumquat bowl, Ohio punter tweeted
the bleep wants to play a bowl game in Idaho?” Ohio's idiot kicker
already determined who the local fans would NOT be rooting for...
Gary Andersen, beloved by his team and the Logan/Cache Valley
community, promised his players in the offseason that he would get a
tattoo if they made it to a bowl game. Andersen fulfilled that promise
Sunday by getting a tattoo of the U-State logo on his left
shoulder....AGAIN The altitude will effect Ohio from the East more then
U st....Boise is 2,842 feet above sea level. logan utah altitude is
4557 above sea level
Ohio U. Elevation: 766 ft. ...huff
huff...puff puff for the Bobcraps...This will be played on the Blues
field and Utah St will be in Blue Uniforms, Boise was banned from
wearing the Blues at home this year because it was determined they had
to big of a advantage in blending in with the field.BOWLS FROM 12/15 to 12/24: .... Favs of 3.5 or less are 20-5 SU, 19-6 ATS

Ohio currently holds an 0-5 mark in bowl games. Combined with the
school’s 0-3 record in the Mid-American Conference Championship Game,
Ohio is winless in eight total postseason games.
Louisiana-Lafayette's Ragin' Cajuns+5(2
units) Close to being a home game for the Cajuns,As of Weds they have
sold 17,000 tickets, definitely will have the home energy, I think this
will be a 3 point game,one way or the other, SDST has a horse at RB
but The Cajuns have a Guy at QB that can keep them in this game,QB
Blaine Gautier, a dual-threat junior, has delivered in his 1st season,
Gautier is 19th in the country with a 150.3 pass efficiency rating. He
is second in the Sun Belt Conference with 20 touchdown passes (tied
for the most in school history) and has only five interceptions.
Gautier is also the league's 10th-leading rusher with 464 yards...With
the Local fan energy to feed off of and the Good QB play the Canjuns
should hang with SDST.
Ragin' Cajuns are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games on turf. Ragin' Cajuns are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games as an underdog of 3.5-10.0. Ragin' Cajuns are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games after accumulating less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game. Ragin' Cajuns are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games as an underdog. Aztecs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite. Aztecs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. win. Aztecs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games on turf.
YTD 7-4(+5.5 Units)
Miami+4(4 units)I'll tell ya, I feel
VERY Comfortable taking Miami tonite...Miami QB Stephen Morris Beat
Maryland last year and it is no drop off at QB but is a bonus,He also
runs the 40 @ 4.6, There’s a lot to like with Morris. He has a cannon
for an arm and is pretty dam accurate on both deep and short routes.He
has the speed to make plays with his feet,With a sloppy rain game this
will come in handy, also Miami's tailback duo of Lamar Miller and Mike
James call themselves Smash and Dash for good reason,James runs the 40
at 4.56, James Lost his mother last December in a car Wreck and will
certainly devote this season in her Memory,Let's talk alittle about
Lamar Miller,He is 6-2 210 pounds and can FLY! Something akin to Oj
Simpson in Size and speed,Devin Hester -- the guy with the 100
speed rating in John Madden's video game -- his fastest at
Riviera Beach Suncoast was 10.87 seconds. Miller (timed at 4.32 in the
40-yard dash as a junior) has not only run faster in the 100 meters,
but Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson (10.61)
too.This trio in the backfield for Miami is TALENTED AND FAST! Too fast
for the turtles I'm here to tell ya! Maryland has RBs Davin Meggett
and D.J. Adams and they are not special,Looking at last years scores
Maryland beat chumps and lost to stable teams,Maryland will score some
but not enough... Miami will win this game Straight up! They are
motivated and have the offense to bury Maryland! "You can really tell
that it’s us against the world, and the only people that matter are the
people on that field," Miami center Tyler Horn said. "We have to look
after our brothers and come together as a team....They will! Don't
swallow the Suspension Hype, They will roll tonite!
