NFL Week 14 Free Picks – Full Sunday Gauntlet Run!

Trying to make sense of my NFL Week 14 free picks took some time! There’s a lot going on this Sunday starting with the Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Baltimore Ravens as a  -7.0 points favorite. The Chiefs have come back to earth since starting the season on fire against the spread. On Sunday, KC battles the Baltimore Ravens and their top ranked defense. Baltimore’s only a half a game behind Pittsburgh in the AFC North. The Ravens have a [...]

Tight NFC East Playoff Race Favors Dallas Cowboys

The NFC East playoff race has been up and down this season, and the latest team to rise is the Dallas Cowboys, who have won 4 straight, including three as underdogs, following last Thursday’s 13-10 home win over the Saints. The most meaningful NFC East division game of the season is in Week 14 when the Cowboys host the Eagles. A win by Dallas gives them a 2-game lead over the defending division and Super Bowl champion Eagles, and the [...]

NFL Power Rankings Week 13

NFL Power Rankings Week 13 1. Los Angeles Rams (11-1 SU and 5-5-2 ATS) Todd Gurley pulling the "I'll just score this touchdown untouched in a few plays anyways" thing where he burned more time off the clock is the ultimate swagger move. Next Game: LAR -3.0 at Chicago 2. New Orleans Saints (10-1 SU and 9-2 ATS) You don't get to keep the spot after you lose a game, especially one that EVERYONE saw. Thanks to less-than-spectacular performances from his counterparts [...]

NFL Week 13 Free Picks – Where’s The Value on Sunday?

While Sunday afternoon’s early slate of games doesn't provide a true marquee matchup, there’s plenty for NFL fans to like. The Bears head to the Giants with starting quarterback Mitch Trubisky likely holding a clipboard. The Giants have been hot against the spread making the game a handicapping challenge in NFL Week 13 free picks. To be honest, this entire schedule is filled with landmine lines. Another NFC North squad, the Detroit Lions, host the 1-loss Rams in a game that [...]

Week 12 NFL Power Rankings

NFL Power Rankings Week 12 1. New Orleans Saints (10-1 SU and 9-2 ATS) There just isn't much to write about when it comes to New Orleans. They are without a doubt the best team in the league because their defense is so damn good. Yes, there are flaws. The Saints allow 285.7 passing yards, the 30th worst mark in the league. People may want to say that their rushing defense is the best in the league, but they've also faced [...]

Full Rundown of the Best NFL Week 12 Picks

The hunt for a playoff spot continues across the league as the Wild Card spots remain up for grabs. The Baltimore Ravens have a tenuous grip on the final spot in the AFC at 5-5 SU and are being hounded five other teams. Meanwhile, the NFC picture is just as muddy with nine teams currently in the mix for the final two spots in the post season. The race to January adds some juicy tension to my NFL Week 12 [...]

NFL Power Rankings Week 11

NFL Power Rankings Week 11 1. New Orleans Saints (9-1 SU and 8-2 ATS) The way the season's gone lately, it's like the Week 1 loss to Tampa never really happened. New Orleans is on a blitzkrieg right now with a 9-0 SU and 8-1 ATS run in hand. They are unequivocally the best betting team in the league, look absolutely unstoppable, and are carrying themselves like nobody can trip them up. Destroying Minnesota in Week 8, outlasting the Rams, decimating [...]

Scott Shapiro’s Week 11 NFL 4-Pack

Week 11 got off to a strong start in Seattle on Thursday night as the home team came out on top in a tight one 27-24. I am really looking forward to a strong slate of games this weekend. Here is my Sunday 4-Pack: Philadelphia Eagles at New Orleans Saints (O/U 56) The red-hot Saints, fresh off a 51-14 romp of the Bengals, return to Louisiana to take on an Eagles team that has failed to resemble their championship squad [...]

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 [...]
