Ben's Picks

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

        Saturday Night – 8:15

  • Loser - 4* New England v GIANTS --- Pats won’t let up now. Check weather, Pats need a fast track.

 

  • Loser - * New Orleans V CHICAGO --- Saints seeking revenge for NFC Championship loss here.

 

  • Loser - 5* St. Louis v ARIZONA --- Cards giving up big points, Rams take advantage.

 

  • Loser - 4* Cincy v MIAMI --- Bengals can’t be trusted in final game. Fish under Tuna surveillance.

 

  • Loser - 4* Pittsburgh v BALTIMORE --- Steelers still need a win. Ravens quit, starting Troy Smith at QB.
 
Pick Results = 0-5 for -22*
