FAVORITE: While there are more impact games upon the NFL playoff landscape, a contest where you throw a few C-notes on is equally, if not more, pertinent and so is the case with my Blockbuster Favorite of the Year. Revenge is a dish best served cold is how the saying goes and the Titans are looking for a little payback for the two-point loss hung upon them in Music City by the Jaguars in November when the Cats were previously winless. Tennessee was double-digit home favorites in that game and sparked the moribund Jags to respectability as thoughts of being “on the clock” for the first pick in the draft evaporated quicker than Tim Tebow’s professional football career with wins in four out of the next five games. The Titans are also 5-2 against the spread as visitors and come off of a gut-wrenching overtime loss in which they couldn’t complete a miraculous comeback. It all adds up to TENNESSEE -5.

Houston!  You gotta problem wit dat?

UNDERDOGS: Yes, I am crazy and a number of doctors will back me up on this point. For those who doubt my insanity, take a closer look as to whom I’m selecting as this week’s recipient of points from Las Vegas sportsbooks. The Houston Texans are getting ten points at home and because there’s no place like home for the holidays the mighty Denver Broncos that our Cookie likes to brag about will be happy providers. The Texans are horrible on both sides of the ball. The Broncos are hyperbolic on offense. This pointspread should be in the area of fourteen. Looks too good–I ain’t biting! TEXANS +10

OVER on The Birds game.

OVER: What a difference a year makes. Last year I flopped badly on the ‘over’ selections but this year they’ve been the most profitable at 11-4. Seattle’s 23-0 shutout of the Giants (which we cashed on) could have been much worse as the Seahawks offense looked out of sync and far from a team many are selecting as the NFC’s representative in the Super Bowl. There aren’t many more brilliant offensive minds patrolling NFL sidelines than Arizona’s Bruce Arians. The man of the Kangol hats has his team at 9-5 and hoping for a playoff berth and can score on any team–even the Seahawks. Both birds fly high on offense for an ARIZ/SEA OVER 43.

UNDER: This selection is based more upon the rate at which the Kansas City Chiefs are scoring these days and the fact that eventually this pace will ebb.  It would behoove the Chiefs to stay basic in their approach as the Colts could be a playoff opponent that goes to school today for a prospective meeting. IND/KC UNDER 45

About Cheesy Bruin 491 Articles
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.


  1. Let’s start with yesterday’s game —-MY SDSU Aztecs swung their red cape and made the Buffalo Bulls dance around the arena in Idaho.The sparse crowd of family & friends cheered. They mercifully ended it quickly in the second half after the Bulls fumbled the opening kickoff. Five plays after later scored again to put it out of reach.
    FINAL SCORE– Aztecs (aka The Matadors) 49 – Bulls 24
    ***** Cue bull slaughter scene from Apocalypse Now********

    As for Cheeseman’s picks….only the Under pick worries me. Mainly because whenever anyone uses the word “behoove” they’re usually just making crap up.
    Which reminds me—gotta go de-hoove and a bull for souvenirs.

  2. Looks like you’re gonna be praying for that UNDER game to make it to 2-2 , Cheeseman,you should’ve picked the Bills like buffalobilly84 predicted!
