Ben's Picks

All trends are ATS (Against The Spread) unless otherwise specified.

  • Loser - 5* Giants v WASHINGTON --- Giants playing like midgets, acting like children. Skins play hard.

 

  • WINNER - 5* Pittsburgh v CINCY --- Bengals are fading. Steelers would love to knock them out off playoffs.

 

  • WINNER - 5* San Fran v DENVER --- Niners still showing up, Broncos should not be spotting this big a #.

 

  • WINNER - 4* Arizona v SAN DIEGO --- Cards playing well and line is over inflated.

 

  • Loser - 4* Buffalo v BALTIMORE --- Bills won’t roll over in a low scoring game.

 

 
Picks Results = 3-2 for +5*
