The Divisional Playoffs are here, which means we’re down to the final seven games in the 2010 Cheddar Bay Invitational at Cleveland Frowns.
After a respectable Wild Card Weekend, we’re in first place – or right on the cusp of first, we’re waiting for the independent audit to come back on last week’s results – and ready to keep rolling this weekend.
Atlanta (-2.5) vs. Green Bay. Hopefully the two-week layoff didn’t leave the Falcons rusty. We’re banking on homefield here.
Chicago (-10) vs. Seattle. Although giving double digits with Jay Cutler (career record 24-29) at quarterback makes us very nervous. But it’s Seattle so …
NY Jets (+9) vs. New England. Sadly, the Rex Ryan traveling party of fun ends for another year this weekend. We fully expect the Patriots to win, we just think this game will be a close one.
Money pick: Pittsburgh (-3) vs. Baltimore. While we’d like to see both teams lose, someone has to win and it should be the Steelers. The good part is, no matter who comes out of this game, they will be so physically beat up they will have no chance next week against New England.
We came across this article on the National Football Post highlighting eight late covers from NFL games this year.
Of the eight games listed, we had three of them this year in the 2010 Cheddar Bay Invitational at Cleveland Frowns, which in some way helps explain why we are only a half-point out of first place heading into the playoffs.
The games we hit on from the list were:
The Browns made the list as well for their Week 5 game against Atlanta.
Interesting that all three covers came on defensive touchdowns.
That leads us to this week’s picks for the Wild Card games. We like:
New Orleans (-10) vs. Seattle, although the weather forecast for Seattle makes us a bit nervous.
Indianapolis (-2.5) vs. the Jets. No weather concerns as the game is indoors, but Rex Ryan’s Churchill-like qualities scare us in a big game.
Green Bay (+2.5) vs. Philly
Money pick: Baltimore (-3) vs. Kansas City
We’re still kicking ourselves for not going with the anti-Big 10 theme we had planned on for this week’s picks in the 2010 Cheddar Bay Invitational at Cleveland Frowns. Oh well.
We hit the college pick yesterday as TCU failed to cover. It’s a tough this week in the NFL as it’s hard to know who’s going to play hard and who is going to lay down.
Kansas City (-3.5) vs. Oakland
NY Giants (-4) vs. Washington
Money pick: New Orleans (-7.5) vs. Tampa Bay
We’re coming down to the end of the 2010 Cheddar Bay Invitational at Cleveland Frowns and we’re holding a 1.5-point lead.
After some much needed r-and-r in Cancun, we’re refreshed and ready to go. This week we like:
Dallas (-7) vs. Arizona
Philly (-14.5) vs. Minnesota
New England (-9) vs. Buffalo
Back on top and loving it in the 2010 Cheddar Bay Invitational at Cleveland Frowns.
This week, we like:
Dallas (-6) vs. Washington
New Orleans (+1) vs. Baltimore
Arizona (+2.5) vs. Carolina
Money: Oakland (-6.5) vs. Denver
After another perfect week – our third in the past five – we’re back on top in the 2010 Cheddar Bay Invitational at Cleveland Frowns.
So who do we like this week?
Green Bay (-7) vs. Detroit
Denver (-5.5) vs. Arizona
Baltimore (-3) vs. Houston
And for the money: San Diego (-7) vs. Kansas City
We’re still right on the heels of leader jimkanicki in the 2010 Cheddar Bay Invitational at Cleveland Frowns.
This week, we like:
Baltimore (-10) vs. Carolina
Atlanta (-3) vs. St. Louis
Green Bay (-3) vs. Minnesota
Money pick: Boise State (-30.5) vs. Fresno State.
We continued to find our stride last week, posting a perfect slate in the 2010 Cheddar Bay Invitational over at Cleveland Frowns. We close the gap on leader jimkanicki and now sit just 2.5 points off the lead.
This week we like:
Boise State (-34.5) vs. Idaho
Oregon (-20) vs. Cal
Indianapolis (-7) vs. Cincinnati
Money pick: Tennessee (-2) vs. Miami
Things are getting hot in the in the 2010 Cheddar Bay Invitational over at Cleveland Frowns. Even a five-point effort last week wasn’t enough as jimkanicki continued a roll that has seen him go 11-1 against the spread the last three weeks.
He missed the Virgina Tech game already this week, so now that we have him on the ropes it’s time to work the body and cut into the 6.5-point deficit:
Boise State (-21) vs. Hawaii
Oregon (-35.5) vs. Washington
NY Giants (-7) vs. Seattle
Money pick: Pittsburgh (-4.5) vs. Cincinnati
