Indy -3 It could be close but I feel it could be a blowout early
Carolina taking the Bears! This will be only road win left in NFC
Seatle -3 This will be the worst ass whooping seen this year
Patriots +9 I feel that they have a destiny with the Colts.

yeah, hitting all 4 and moving the lines last week turned my $150 into about $550. not as good on payouts, but a little easier to hit, for me anyways! although i've only won about 5 or 6 time this year.

Parlays and teasers... the odds are just way bad for the bettor. I do do an occasional 12 team parlay for 20 or 50. One day I'll hit one. :-) Got one tonight for college bb. If I hit it, I hit it. If not, its better odds than spending 20 on the Texas Lotto.

Straight picks if you can hit 57-60% you'll double your bankroll about once every 110 bets. It's hard enough picking one team out of two to win.

yeah, i usually don't throw down enough weekly to do a few different ATS anyways. so i will just do a parlay that will 5X or 6X my bet. i see this money as gone as and spent as soon as i place (don't count on anything) so when i do hit it's even that much sweeter! oh well it's all in fun to me, keeps me a lot more interested in the games. i'm about 5% up on the year though, and when you figure in opportunity cost i'm down, LOL! i'm like a bad stock broker, all this work to break even.

I guess you didn't watch the season game, the score doesn't tell the whole story! The Pats were blown out and Denver played very conservative and saved their plays for the playoffs!

My Picks:

Broncos - Most overall balanced team in the NFL and can shut anyone down!
Redskins - Santana Moss is a handful for any cornerback, and the defense is hungry for this win!
Panthers - The Bears have yet to show they can put Steve Smith away and have no offense!
Steelers - I know it's a slim chance for the Steelers, but I think Manning is going to get injured and the team hasn't played for how long?


Go Broncos!

BTW, if you don't know who Darrent Williams is, watch him! He's #27 [cornerback] for the Broncos, and is a rookie out of Fort Worth! I'm willing to bet that he'll pick Tom Brady off!

Man you really need to look at all their results. Any time they faced a decent team, they struggled to win. Not to mention the Redskins beat them early in the season. They barely beat the Giants in OT, should have lost to the Cowboys, and don't forget they almost lost to the Cardinals.

Just cause they ran over a second string Eagles team and the 49ers, doesn't mean they played well against sold teams. Hell the week after those 2 blowouts they almost lost to the Tiitans, lol.

Seattle is a good team, but you gotta be stupid to think they will win against the Skins with no problems. This game is the easiest to call an upset for, who know though.........

I've got the Steelers and Broncos for the AFC and the Seahawks and Bears in the NFC.

The most current odds for the Pats/Broncos I could find from the Vegas sports books is Pats +3.5

Homerism alive and well on DFWStangs. Thought it was only for the UT.

Broncos get their first home field in 7 years and has never won in post season since the Elway era.

Broncos could only manage a 28-20 home game win this year against the Pats when the Pats have 7 starters out including: Harrison, Poole, Bruschi, Seymour, Dillon, Faulk and Light.

Dillon and Faulk both out of the game and they still put up 20 points. Denver only puts up 28 points with Bruschi and Seymour out.

Denver almost blew the 28-3 lead it had early in the 3rd quarter.

Bets are made. I'm going to be real busy tomorrow, so decided to pull the trigger tonight.

1/14
Redskins +9.5
Pats +3

1/15
Bears -3
Colts -9.5

Only one that really concerns me is Colts -9.5 I hate laying that much chalk in a playoff. Got to go with how I capped it which was Colts 34 and Steelers 20. Biggest unknowns for me is 1) The loss in SD 2) Starters for nearly a month 3) Dungy absence and tradegy. I know as a father that his son's suicide is weighing pretty heavy on his head. Sort of makes football seem rather insignificant.

Good luck to all.

Also adding the under for the Seahawks/Redskins game at U 41.5


Since November no one has scored more than 20 points on the 'skins. Seahawks haven't allowed more than 17 points for the entire season.

Only worry is that Seahawks aren't exactly conservative in their offense.

I didn't have alot of time this week to actually study the games.

I capped it at Seattle 24 and Steelers 17 which puts me at a 1/2 point under. I couldn't find a reason to go higher except for Seattle to knock down some pretty big plays. I could find alot of reasons to pull the score down (17-10 was my second guess)

But I guess that is why they call it gambling and I still have to work. One of us will win at least.

28-3 mid 3rd quarter, yeah, that seems like a blow out! And how many times did the Pats get stopped 3 and out?

Quick Facts on the game:

Plummer - 17 of 24 for 262 yards, 2 TD's
Bell - 13 carries for 114 yards, 8.8 YPC
Smith - 6 catches, 123 yards, 1 TD
Denver - 432 Offensive Yards

That's too easy to put on the supposedly best team in NFL! We know what happened to the supposedly best college team!

Think what you want to think, I was just trying to get others to recognize the rookie from the DFW. And it is a fact that Denver is one of the most overall balanced team right now!

And neither have they played at home since Elway!

Some Quick Facts for you, too:

- Denver leads the series 23-15 and is 15-8 at home in the series
- Denver is 6-0 against previous year superbowl participants since 2002
- Mike Shanahan has more wins under his belt than any other coach in the league since 1998 [Maybe 96']

When it comes to the NFL, back ups are not your typical college players, look at Larry Johnson[KCC] and Marion Barber[Cowboys] for example! And to top that off, when you build a team, you build it with your 2nd depth in mind, you need players who can make plays when the starters are not capable of playing. If your team fails to have anyone worthy, it's part of having a bad team, period. Cry about injuries all you want, it's the staffs fault. What's going to happen if someone gets injured in the big game, cry about it and use it as a reason you lost? No, suck it up and except that you lost to a better team overall!

Anyways, to talk about injuries, Champ Bailey just entered that game off a 2 game no play from a hamstring injury, he was still not recovered and went out in the game. And as for Williams, he was never 100% due to his ankle injury early on[and if he plays this week, he's only going to be 60%]. But you know what, oh well, the team still put out what they had.

We'll see at game time, I get tired of hearing about the Patriots! They really aren't that good this year, overrated if you ask me! The reason everyone freezes up on them is from the mental game and knowing they won the SB a couple times recently. Not to mention, seemed like everyone in the world wanted to jump on their bandwagon when they went back to the SB for the second time!

Tater tot will get used to seeing Mr. Seymour laying on top of him this game. If Bruschi is able to go (questionable) Tater Tot will become Hash Brown.

Denver almost inexcusably gave up a 28-3 lead AT HOME when the Pats were without 31% of their starters. Back ups are backups for a reason, NFL or College.

It isn't too hard to get stopped 3 and out when Corey Dillon, Marshall Faulk and one of your starting offensive tackles aren't play, no is it? Doesn't require too much creativity on defense.

Without Tedy Bruschi the Pats held the Jags to 1-12 on third down, one rushing first down, and only 87 yards on the ground. Oh yea, Jags were 0-3 in the red zone. Leftwich and Garrad got sacked 6 times.

Pats always jell at the right time. Brady is playing at peak level and the Pats defense will force Plummer into a mistake or two which will be the game. Belichik will use two former CBs as there starting SS to improve coverage and allow the defense to get back to normal with their feins and stunts with his awesome from 7.

As far as stats go: Brady and Belichik are 10-0 in post season. 2-0 as a dog. 5-0 away from Foxboro and 2-0 as a visitor.

Wish you the best, it's only money to me, but the $$$$ are on the Pats.

Without Tedy Bruschi the Pats held the Jags to 1-12 on third down, one rushing first down, and only 87 yards on the ground. Oh yea, Jags were 0-3 in the red zone. Leftwich and Garrad got sacked 6 times.

Wish you the best, it's only money to me, but the $$$$ are on the Pats.
Tatum Bell is not the starter, Mike Anderson is and I don't care what team you are, he's a power runner and 1 man can't stop him for the whole game alone! And to top that off, Denver has the best running game in the league with both of their backs almost reaching 1000 yards each, Anderson did.

Again, they started to play way too conservative just trying to get out of the game with a win, that's not happening in the playoffs.

As for the back field, you might as well pick up Eddie George, they all have the same thing in common!

The Pats played a team with a starting QB coming in without playing forever. The team already adjusted their chemistry with Garrad, going with Leftwich was a big mistake and cost them the game. And that was the Jags, not everyone in the league.

Good luck on your bet, the Pats been playing worthless teams and are in the worst division, how do you think they got all those wins!

I know Tater Tot isn't the starter. Couldn't remember if Anderson had a nickname or not.


So lets look at the game: Pass to Smith 72 yards, to Lelie for 52 yards, Bell off tackle for 68 yards.

Pats were missing Seymour (allpro), Bruschi out also. Pats were running 4-3 with Brown and Beisel in the middle.

Starks was a corner. Gone.
Sanders. Waaaay down on the depth chart now.
Freeman. Gone.

This go round they'll be playing there favorite 3-4 instead of the 4-3.

Oh yea, since you like stats (which I threw out the window for this game because they are meaningless in this game)

Pats are 18-3 SU when playing a team for the second time in a season. Pats are 6-0 SU when they lost the first game of the encounter.

What the fuck are you smoking?

By the way, I'd call 13 points in a playoff game a blowout. I think your predictions are way off though.

I'm as hardcore a Denver fan as you will find, but the Pats are as close to an NFL dynasty anyone has seen in a long time. The way I see it, Seymor (sp?) is a beast and he's healthy. Teddy Bruschi is not 100%. I don't know if because of his stroke they can load him up with cortizone shots or med him up at all before the came. I don't think he will be that big of an impact other than for motivation. Their D is much improved though, but Denver has always had a way of making good Ds look bad. Look what they did against KC in their first meeting of the year. The talk all season up to that game was how much KCs D had improved, then Denver stomped a mudhole. Kubiak and Shanny script the first few plays of the game and I would think its safe to say Denver will come out passing in their first series. NE is ready for the run and Denver knows it. The thing that could hurt Denver on D is the fact that Derrant Williams will only be playing nickle. Foxworth is good for a rookie and should be able to hang with Branch ok. Champ can cover anyone. Denvers line backers will cover NE's stud tight end just fine. Al Wilson is playing with a cast on one hand because he had pins installed in his thumb when he broke it a few weeks back. That could be an issue. Tom Brady will be able to pass against Denver, no doubt about it, Denver's pass defense is not rated very high, but that's because their D-line takes away the run and forces other teams to do nothing but pass. I've gotta go with Denver on this one just because I am a fan. I'm rooting for Pitt, but think Indy will handle them. Carolina will give DA BEARS a run for their money, and Seattle will handily beat the DeadSkins.

Fair enough. Good luck tonight.


The game is only one of 16 bets I got going today. Got to go with Brady and the much improved Pat defense.

also, don't know if everyone's aware that pats are undefeated since 01 when facing a team in the playoffs that beat them in the regular season. again, not necessarily picking them to win, picking them to keep it close.

That's a pretty interesting stat to be honest...one I definitely was not aware of and one I have not heard any of the commentators state. I just hope Denver can swing it today. I would hate to see Denver go in to INDY for the 3rd straight season and lose...again...to the Colts...again.

I've decided to play it smart this year and not bet money. Usually when I bet in favor of Denver, they lose and I lose. I'm using supersitions this year. Maybe a little reverse psychology?

it's tough to beat a good team twice in the nfl, throw in a team that is belichick-coached, it gets really tough.

He is a damn good coach and a class act. I'd never vote against him unless he's playing Denver.

Just cause they ran over a second string Eagles team and the 49ers, doesn't mean they played well against sold teams. Hell the week after those 2 blowouts they almost lost to the Tiitans, lol.

Seattle is a good team, but you gotta be stupid to think they will win against the Skins with no problems. This game is the easiest to call an upset for, who know though.........

Okay, All I can say to your highlighted words is they have just won 12 straight. Shoulda, woulda, coulda, almost, barley doesn't count!
I must be stupid because they lost their star running back early, and turned the ball over 3 times, and still WON by 10.

Broncos could only manage a 28-20 home game win this year against the Pats when the Pats have 7 starters out including: Harrison, Poole, Bruschi, Seymour, Dillon, Faulk and Light.

Dillon and Faulk both out of the game and they still put up 20 points. Denver only puts up 28 points with Bruschi and Seymour out.

Denver almost blew the 28-3 lead it had early in the 3rd quarter.
I guess the starters only made it worse!

As I said, they played too conservative and it wasn't going to happen in the playoffs, as proved on 1st and 10 when Plummer rolled out for the deep pass!

Pats did some good on the run defense, I will give them that, but it seems like they played with the vaseline too much in the locker room!

If you were, you wouldn't have had a thought of them even losing this game!

I'm pulling for the Steelers, just to make it easier back at home.

The RCA Dome[or whatever] gives me the chills, but it's still possible. However, it's said to hear about Harper and his crazy wife, but I wish the best for him even though he is with the Colts. If the Broncos don't make it to the SB, and the Colts do, I'll be cheering on the Colts. I'd hate to see another great never make it to the big game in his career. Peyton deserves a SB ring, but he can wait till next year!

Die hard Bronco fan here, ever since I came out the nut sac!

Talking

I didn't have a chance to get on last night after the game to say "GO BRONCOS!!!" So I figured I'd do it this morning. I thought the game would be a lot tighter and more disciplined on the Pats side. Denver got in Tom Brady's head right off the bat (see John Lynch). Did you guys see the first series when Lynch got in there on Brady after the whistle blew and started pumping his fist in the air? Then Brady got in Lynch's face and mocked him? Right from the get go.
