BLOOMINGBURG, NY – Two rescheduled NFL games are all the talk in sports, as is POTUS for the same reason. I’m on record somewhere on this website as saying the NFL would get to about the mid point of its season before shutting things down and things are heading in that direction. Pittsburgh vs Tennessee and NE vs KC have been cancelled this week due to The Rona. Ya just can’t control 300+ pound animals breathing, sweating, spitting and punching each other in the nuts without contracting and spreading cooties. I’m still here, though, with Cheesy Bruin’s Free NFL Picks for your wagering pleasure but I have a best bet that is sure to bring good vibes among the MTM followers.
This past Thursday night I paid a visit to MTM’s version of The Dude, who shines greater than the Big Lebowski’s version. The plan was to watch and make fun of the J-E-T-S but we got sidetracked with food, sports talk and our health. I’m a pretty good judge of character and this guy is who I’m betting on to kick his medical issues in the teeth and into submission. The Dude/Replacement Matt is a deep thinker. He is astute, aware and has an inner resolve and fighting spirit disguised in a soft spoken demeanor. The smart money is on this mensch and I’m all in on his battle to win against what’s on his plate right now. Go get ‘em brother!
Now to this week’s picks? 1-3 last week, 6-6 year to date.
The Packers took a quarterback with their first round pick in April’s draft and signaled the first step in Aaron Rodgers departure out of America’s dairy land. Much was said about the aging signal caller and the grooming of Green Bay’s future face of the franchise. Not so fast people. Rodgers has shown there’s more in the tank even with injuries along the receiving corps and throwing to the likes of mediocre talent in guys named Lazard, Valdes-Scantling and no frills tight ends. Monday Night Football is a perfect backdrop to make the public take notice that Rodgers can still perform at a very high level and the Falcons are the perfect opponent to let him do whatever he wants. The Pick? GREEN BAY PACKERS -7 over Atlanta Falcons
After watching last Monday’s KC vs Baltimore game, there was something that struck a chord within me. Lamar Jackson had a pitiful game and his Ravens still managed to score twenty points in the loss to Reid and Mahomes. This week’s foe for the Ravens, Washington, isn’t nearly as competent as the Chiefs but it is a border war and the betting angle of getting a sh!t ton of points and the short week The Birds are up against off MNF is always worth a wager. The Pick? WASHINGTON +14 over BALTIMORE RAVENS
Paging Danny Dimes. Wake up Jason Garrett. Alas, the Jints are only one game off the division lead. Let that sink in Big Blew fans. NY Giants/LA RAMS OVER 48
Here’s hoping the Hawks fell asleep on the flight to South Beach and their body alarms don’t wake up in time for the 1:00 eastern start. Seattle/MIAMI UNDER 54
With that, I’m out. Leave your thoughts below and come back tomorrow for Sports Rain Man Junoir Blaber.
