NFL Week 11 Free Picks – Full Sunday Slate!

Before we get to my NFL Week 11 free picks, I'm going to quickly touch on the one prevailing topic that everyone keeps chatting about: One of the top skill players in the NFL, Pittsburgh running back Le’Veon Bell, will forego playing this season after failing to report before the deadline. Bell must now sit out the rest of 2018. It looks like the star RB over played his hand. Although not having Bell in the backfield hurt Pittsburgh in [...]

NFL Power Rankings Week 10

NFL Power Rankings Week 10 1. New Orleans Saints (8-1 SU and 7-2 ATS) It's time for us to recognize the greatness that the hard-charging New Orleans Saints have achieved. It's not like we didn't notice it, but it was hard to really push Payton's boys past the Rams and Chiefs until this past weekend. The ultra-powered Saints blasted Cincinnati 51-14 to push their scoring average to 36.7 points per game, which leads the league. Saints players paid homage to Dez [...]

NFL Power Rankings Week 9

1. Kansas City Chiefs (8-1 SU and ATS) It took an extra week, but the rip roaring Chiefs are finally kings of the hill. They've been knocking on heaven's door for quite a while, but that one game where they were nipped by the Patriots was holding them back. No longer. The Chiefs laid waste to the hapless Browns on Sunday in a 37-21 decimation that showcased everything they have offensively as the Rams lost to the Saints. We all have [...]

Scott Shapiro’s Week 9 NFL 4-Pack

It is hard to believe we are nearly halfway through the season, but it is onto Week 9 in the National Football League after going 2-2 with my Week 8 4-Pack. A solid set of games is on tap, including a clash between arguably the league’s two best teams in the Rams and Saints. I lack a strong opinion in the game in the Louisiana, but here are the games I like this week. Denver Broncos (-1) vs Houston Texans [...]

NFL Week 9 Spread Busters – Grading The Sunday Slate

Despite the surging Cincinnati Bengals playing well enough to remain in the conversation, most NFL fans know that the game between Pittsburgh and Baltimore this weekend determines which team takes a step towards the division title. As a very popular public bet, the Pittsburgh Steelers are garnering a lot of action on the natural NFL Week 9 spread for the game (BAL -3.0), but there's no certainty when these two teams clash. Pittsburgh’s been on a roll since deciding that [...]

2018 Midseason NFL Awards

Are we supposed to do this after or before Week 9? Does it matter because the 2018 Midseason NFL Awards sure don't. Sprinkled in through this read are some NFL futures prices which you might be interested in. Let's tout some big producers and sandbag some low hanging fruit, shall we? Regular Season MVP - Patrick Mahomes (QB - Kansas City Chiefs) No real doubt here in terms of 2018 Midseason NFL awards. Mahomes is on pace to obliterate a [...]

Week 8 NFL Power Rankings

Week 8 NFL Power Rankings 1.Los Angeles Rams (8-0 SU and 4-3-1 ATS) We wish Todd Gurley cared about our gambling and fantasy needs as much as we did. Next Game: LAR at New Orleans -1.5 2. Kansas City Chiefs (7-1 SU and ATS) That backdoor cover hurt as Brandon McManus nailed a 36 yarder to make the final score 30-23 against a -8.5 closing line. Without that, the Chiefs move in to the top spot without question. Thankfully, they get [...]

NFL Week 8 Picks – Can Rodgers Rally Against Rams?

Two games figure to attract the most attention on Sunday:  Packers at Rams and Broncos at Chiefs. Kansas City had to fight to beat Denver on the moneyline in the first battle. Will the Broncos exact revenge, or will Chiefs prove they truly are the team to beat in the AFC? Meanwhile, the Rams got off their 3-game ATS slide in a 39-10 win over San Francisco. Before Rams’ bettors get too excited, read the two words used to end [...]

Scott Shapiro’s Week 8 NFL 4-Pack

The 2018 NFL season got off to an entertaining start on Thursday night as the Texans made it five straight wins with a 42-23 trouncing against the Dolphins. After treading water last Sunday and endorsing the wrong side to start the week I am hopeful to get back to my winning ways with my Week 8 NFL 4-Pack. Enjoy and good luck. Philadelphia Eagles (-3) vs Jacksonville Jaguars When I looked at the schedule before the season started this overseas [...]
