Moose's Weekly Picks

Moose is riding high after last week's blistering 8-4-1 record and another No Doubter in the win column.  The only things left to do are get the overall record back over .500, and somehow pick the Titans game correctly.  Let's take a deep dive into this week's matchups, which include another Thursday night snoozefest and the annual London game.

Tampa Bay (+6.5) at Minnesota
PICK: Tampa Bay.  Legbreaker Schiano has been able to hang in there with some of the league's more prolific offenses.  I think they can keep it close with Minnesota.

NEP (-7) at St. Louis
PICK: St. Louis.  I don't like the NEP secondary one bit.  I think the NEP win like last week in a close one.  You sound like you're from London!

Jacksonville (+14) at Green Bay
PICK: Jacksonville.  The Packers offense is rolling, and the Jags will be without MJD and possibly Blaine Gabbert.  However, 14 points is just way too much to give away.  Also, the Packers defensive captain Chucky Woodson is not playing.

Indianapolis (+3.5) at Tennessee
PICK: Tennessee. The streak ends this week!  Fuck the Titans!

San Diego (-2.5) at Cleveland
PICK: San Diego.  An embarrassing loss two weeks ago helped Moose get his first No Doubter right.  This week the Chargers come in and dominate after a bye.  Otherwise Norv Turner gets canned.

Atlanta (+2.5) at Philadelphia
PICK: Atlanta.  The only reason I can think of for Atlanta to get 2.5 in this game is that the Eagles are 13-0 coming off of a bye week under Andy Reid.  This year is unlike any other though.  You would think home field might be another reason, but I bet Eagles fans turn on their team very quickly in this one.   The Eagles lose in my NO DOUBTER of the week.

Seattle (+2) at Detroit
PICK: Seattle.  Detroit looked miserable against the Bears on Monday, and play another good defense on short rest.  Meanwhile Seattle hasn't played since last Thursday.  I'll take rest, defense, running game and two points on the road.

Miami (+2.5) at NYJ
PICK: NYJ.  The NYJ won in overtime on the road in their last matchup with the Dolphins, and I think they have improved since then.  The NYJ win this one on their home turf.

Carolina (+7.5) at Chicago
PICK: Carolina.  The Bears defense is stifling, but their offense is not so great.  I think the Panthers keep it close enough to cover the spread in this one.

Washington (+4.5) at Pittsburgh
PICK: Washington.  Robert Griffin III is doing some magical stuff on offense.  I think they surprise the Steelers with a win at Heinz Field.

Oakland (-2) at Kansas City
PICK: Oakland.  Brady Quinn is playing for Kansas City.

NYG (-2) at Dallas
PICK: NYG.  Giants go on the road and crush Dallas after narrowly escaping the Redskins.

New Orleans (+6) at Denver
PICK: New Orleans.  If you haven't noticed, the Saints are starting to put up big numbers on offense again.  I'll take that offense and six points more than I'll leave it.

San Francisco (-6.5) at Arizona
PICK: San Francisco.  The Cardinals are starting to stink up the joint.  I like them to finish 8-8.

LAST WEEK: 8-4-1
SEASON RECORD: 40-43-3
NO DOUBTER RECORD: 2-4
