Free NFL Picks and Wisdom from Cheesy Bruin

17 Comments

imagesCAR0AHRJNEW YORK, NY – That’s it! I’ve had it with these break even 2 and 2 weeks (3 of the past 4) of the Free NFL Picks segment on MTM. Still, the record is a respectable 31-20 overall as I’m hitting at a 61% clip.  Today, if not lacing your pockets with holiday cash, a handful of bad football teams get me rolling to the aforementioned magic number.

FAVORITE: A horrible game kicks off in East Rutherford at 1:00, the stench of which can only get lost in the malodorous waftings from nearby Secaucus. The Jets, losers of three straight, are showcasing a Pop Warner offense to the tune of two Nick Folk (offensive team MVP?) field goals over the last two contests. In town to stink up the environment even further are the Oakland Raiders. As competitive as they’ve been lately the Silver & Black are still toting around a QB named Matt McGloin (sounds like a bad piece of corned beef from the cow’s nether region) and a productive understudy of running backs. imagesCAW04OA3I’ll take my chances on Rex Ryan’s stout run defense against a rookie QB and Marty Mornhinweg to cook up a game plan no matter which QB takes snaps for Gang Green. This is my Department of Environmental Protection Lock of the Year. J-E-T-S minus-3.

UNDERDOG: Say what you want about Angry Ward’s Minnesota Vikings but they are 2-1-1 in their last four games and while Leslie Frazier is in over his head as a Head Coach in the NFL, the Purple Penis Eaters haven’t thrown in the towel after a 1-7 start. The host (6-6) Ravens are nothing more than defending Super Bowl Champs because the AFC is a much weaker conference from top to bottom compared to the NFC and are a faux .500 team. Even a win today doesn’t save Leslie Frazier’s job. A generous number of points to grab…VIKINGS +6

Down goes Frazier

OVER: A few weeks ago I revealed an NFL betting theory as the best tip ever from an OTB old-timer. I won’t repeat it but will just tell you it’s $$$ in the bank 3 out of 4 times in it’s rarity. Washington and the Giants were well on their way to last week’s predicted over until the ‘Skins fell flat after a two touchdown lead and only mustered a field goal the rest of the way. Kansas City has been fine tuning the offense lately, albeit in losses, and serves well for the likes of playoff match-ups against Denver, New England, or Cincinnati. The Chiefs get to 30 without breaking a sweat so all we’re asking for is RGlll to get the remaining 16 or 17. WASH/KC OVER 44

imagesCA7GSEZWUNDER: I’m calling for an investigation concerning the Indianapolis Colts and the Las Vegas lines. It seems like every week games involving the Horseshoes come down to the last play to determine a point-spread cover and /or the total and has produced an unhealthy disdain for Andrew Luck and Chuck Pagano. The fact that I appear to be on the losing side of these buzzer-beaters adds to the animosity. The word is out and makes Luck uneasy enough to lay an egg in this game against the Bengals who are struggling to score on offense as of late.

Tune in tomorrow for either  DJ Eberle, who has more Free NFL Picks for you here… or West Coast Craig.

A man amongst men. Cheesy Bruin kicked cancer to the curb - twice. The Cheese Man's a big, tough teddy-bear who survived the Bronx despite being an unabashed Boston Bruins fan and Sargent-At-Arms for Angry Ward's Urban Spur Posse. Nuff said. Doctors have taken most of this throat and had to make him a new tongue from thigh-meat (his own) and still he won't shut up about the Bruins, Cowboys, Pirates and Cleveland Cavaliers. And yes, his kids do love him.

    The McGloin looks good! The Chiefs may shut out RG 3 and the Skins though.

    Can you get Mad Cow from McGloin, or just e-Coli?

    • Cheesybruin

      The Mc stands for Mad Cow in McGloin. You might have one with the wonderful healing properties of horseradish, SAF.

      • jgclancy

        The big G stands for Gopher.

        • Cheesybruin

          Do people eat gopher, Clancy?

          • jgclancy

            Tastes like squirrel. A little gamey. Really a stew meat.

    Cheese, even .500 is better than most of the TV Pundits. And overall you’re still dang good… We’re just happy you’re not forcing anything re the Devils cheating their way past the Rangers in OT last night.

    • Cheesybruin

      Wow, a compliment from management? Have you been drinking already this morning? And before church? Five “Our Fathers” and five “Hail Mary’s” for you!

      • jgclancy

        Didn’t they demand you have 75% this year? At least they can’t dock your pay!
        Go Vikings! I’d love to have them knockout the Ravens hopes of making the playoffs .
        Junoir Blaber( and myself I might add) is happy with MSU beating OSU.
        Urban Meyer showed his class after losing by having his team leave the field and not sing “Carmen Ohio” for the first time in a hundred years.

        Looks like it’ll be Florida State against Auburn and everyone should be rooting for Auburn……not Ben Rapistberger’s soon to be best friend Jameis Winston.

        What are your updated Over/Under numbers?

        • Cheesybruin

          Nothing to update…all the lines have remained the same. Oops, forgot to list the UNDER in the CIN/IND game. 43 1/2!

          • jgclancy

            There ya go! Now you’ve made me have to watch the Jets game by picking them you know. Kinda mean.

  • AngryWard

    I think the Ravens are gonna put it on my Vikes today, so I hope you’re right. Lots of snow out there. Surprised you didn’t play the weather angle on any of the over/unders.

  • Cheesybruin

    UNREAL finish in Vikings game! Was that five TD’s in two minutes of time?

    • jgclancy

      They did cover for ya Cheesy as did the Jets and the Wash/KC OVER but you really should listen to yourself and not bet on them Colts! 3 of 4 though!

      The end of the Pitt / Miami game was good with the Pitt player stepping out at the 13 on the last play heading in to the end zone!

      • Cheesybruin

        That lateral play was coming back anyway…Rapistberger threw the ball about a half yard forward.
        3-1 is more like it! Happy to see the Colts gets their arses handed to them!

        • jgclancy

          Usually I say I can’t believe the Vikings lost like that but this year–I expect it!

  • Junoir Blaber

    Great pick on the Jets!! ?You are learning Cheese!!
