Cheesy Bruin: Free NFL Picks

NEW YORK, NY – On the heels of last week’s Cheesy Bruin superfecta (wins on all four bets) the young season is profiting at a 75% clip, well above the blazing mark set in 2012 here on MeettheMatts.com. Tell a friend – but not too many – as we don’t want Vegas line movements interfering with our balance sheet. Beat your bookie senseless with these selections…

UNDERDOG: The underdog for the Giants-Panthers game changed, almost upon the setting of the Vegas point spreads early this week, as the Giants went from dogs of 2.5 to faves of -1. The speculation of desperation setting in on the Giants as another loss puts them at 0-3 for the year moved the line with bettors swarming casino windows with ca$h in both hands as the G-Men’s season implodes with another poor performance. Not so, is what I’m saying, because the NFC East is so horrible they can start 0-4 and still win the division against what would normally seem as tall odds. The Giants almost always beat up on the Panthers and seemingly play them at the right time – but this isn’t the correct time. Heavy hearts for Tom Coughlin’s brother probably took some of the edge and attention off this game, and the secondary woes in the Big Blue secondary spell trouble with Carolina smelling blood after serving as the NFL’s #2 group of heartbreak kids – outdone only by the Minnesota Yikes in the first two weeks. The Cats are home with a bye next week and need to avoid staring 0-3 in the face while idle. CAROLINA +1

nflcheerleadersFAVORITE: A question asked of every football analyst is who will be the surprise teams of the upcoming NFL season.  Rarely, if at all, were the names of a pair of combatants in an AFC clash at 1:00 pm revealed.  Similarly, both Tennessee and San Diego couldn’t hold leads in losing to AFC heavies Houston but triumphant travel to the state of Pennsylvania has both at 1-1.  The Titans have relied on defense with Jake Locker not reminding anyone of McNair or Pastorini and the Chargers leaning on the throwing arm of Phillip Rivers with a leaky defense in tow.  The Titans hear the home crowd roar for the first time in Week #3 and that should be enough for a cover.  TENNESSEE -3

OVER: Sometimes, a bettor just gets a good feel for what certain teams are doing and I seem honed in on the AFC East and teams they’ve played thus far.  The Jets’ Geno Smith hit receivers for big chunks of down-field yardage against the Pats while the Hall of Fame backfield duo of Powell and Ivory combined to carve up 100 yards on the ground.  two-Patriotic-cheerleaders-nfl-cheerleaders-755122_400_480Late turnovers kept the Jets from more points and victory just as the Bills did a week earlier versus the same New England defense.  The Bucs are more balanced and polished on offense and the Brady-led offense may get The Gronk back and only helps this game go ‘over’.  NE/TB OVER 44

UNDER: The “total” betting proposition of Wash/Det (49) smells fishy.  The Pentagon is our national defense but could effortlessly score on both of these teams.  The number seems too low.  Something’s up and somebody knows.  DET/WASH UNDER 49

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.
