Ben's Picks

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

  • WINNER - 4* Washington v SEATTLE --- The Skins are the feel good story, the problem is they had to go all out the last 4 weeks just to make it to the postseason. They also had to beat division rival Dallas, last week, and have to travel to the left coast and play on their off turf. The Seahawks dominated a mediocre division, but they did what they had too. The Hawks are a tough home team and have a diverse offense with QB Hasselbeck and RB Alexander, they also have a capable defense and a good pass rush. Skins feel good QB, Todd Collins, is in for a rough day.

 

 

  • Loser - 3* Jax v PITT --- Tough to go against Steelers at home, but injured on O-Line and Jags get physical.

 

 

  • WINNER - 4* Jax v PITT. --- OVER the Total --- With injured RB, Big Ben should come out throwing.

 

 

  • Loser - 3* Giants v TAMPA --- G-Men all out in meaningless game LW, big mistake. Bucs make Eli cry.

 

 

  • WINNER - 5* Tennessee v SAN DIEGO --- Titans in over their heads here, QB Young one demensional and was shut down in previous meeting. Chargers on a mission after starting the year behind the 8-ball and don’t forget, Bolts don’t have to overcome Marty’s putrid playoff record this time. Bolts Big.
 
Pick Results = 3-2 for +6*
