After a week off I’m coming at you with a very quick Cold Hard Locks. Party is about to start at my place celebrating my victorious day at paintball where I made sure the G-Man was littered with welts. I’m gonna beat him just as bad in the Locks as I did this afternoon.
Year to Date:
G-Man wins Week 8 8-5 to 7-6, G-Man leads Weekly Series: 5-1-2
G-Man Overall: 70-50
Matty D Overall: 64-56
Week 9 Cold Hard Locks
(G-Man and Matty D have same picks unless otherwise noted.)
Thursday Night Football
Atlanta over Falcons
Well we both went with Atlanta here and it was a very good choice.
Baltimore over Pittsburgh
If Big Ben plays and is fully healthy they win. If not this great rivalry game goes the way of the bounce-back Ravens.
G-Man is taking the Steelers
Dallas over Cleveland
Cleveland is the worst team in football but fun to watch. On offense, their defense is gonna get hammered by Zeke.
Kansas City over Jacksonville
The Chiefs are hot again and Blake Bortles spent the week with a private throwing coach to fix his mechanics mid-season. Advantage Dee Ford, Juston Houston, and Tamba Hali.
Miami over New York (J)
Does Ajayi go for 200 yards again? No but the Jets barely beat the Browns. Fitzpatrick has two pick-sixes in him.
Philadelphia over New York (G)
Eagles. Giants. Beckham. Wentz. I like the Eagles pass rush plus this is a must win for them on the road. Brandon Graham is an All-Pro.
Detroit over Minnesota
Did you watch that Vikings offense? They need real help. Detroit does just enough to pull this one out while Sam Bradford continues to search for answers.
G-Man is taking the Vikings and their anemic offense.
Carolina over Los Angeles
Cam is whining but Jonathan Stewart has returned with a vengance. Plus the defense gets to enjoy the inability of Case Keenum.
G-Man is taking the hometown Rams.
New Orleans over San Fransisco
Yeah easiest pick of the week. And Cleveland is playing so that tells you something.
This is Matty D’s Survival Pool Pick of the Week. Chip is heading back to Oregon.
San Diego over Tennessee
Should be high scoring and I like the Chargers to take this one from the streaking Titans here. Too much Philip Rivers although Murray and Henry are a double-sided hammer.
Green Bay over Indianapolis
Two struggling quarterbacks in need of a win. I’ll take Aaron and a better defense.
Sunday Night Football
Denver over Oakland
Hardest pick of the week. But taking that special defense even without Talib. And I think Devontae Booker has a breakout week with C.J. Anderson out.
G-Man is taking the high flying Raiders here.
Monday Night Football
Seattle over Buffalo
The Seahawks defense is too much for Shady and Wilson barely gets it done. It’ll be another low scoring affair.
