Football Weekend: The Picks
All week long we’ve heard about the Kansas City Chiefs-Philadelphia Eagles game, the only game featured tonight (Thursday). The Chiefs have had more positive media attention nationally this week than they’ve had in nearly a decade. Let’s look at their two wins honestly.
They dominated the Jacksonville Jaguars at Jacksonville two weeks ago. The Jags clearly are a team that might go 0 and 16. Still, a solid win on the road. More impressive, KC edged out the Dallas Cowboys Sunday at Arrowhead. The game could have gone either way. While we are all happy KC won, it was far from a dominant victory.
Now the Chiefs are on the road with a short week of practice, a banged up tight end, a wounded running back in Jamaal Charles, in short the Chiefs offense is in question.
The Eagles, on the other hand, have an explosive offense led by the aging Mike Vick who is also known to be erratic and injury prone. Philly defense is horrible. It will come down to the KC defense being for real or over-rated. I say this one is a coin flip.
The advantage goes to the Eagles since they are at home with a complicated offense that the Chiefs must find a way to stop. Alex Smith must step up a notch or two in both running and passing, we will need more offense than we’ve seen in the first two games.
My advice would be to tease this game, get the Chiefs +9 and take Clemson -8 over Carolina State.
Florida (-10) over Tennessee on a tease with Clemson (-8) over NC State.
Baylor (-27) over Monroe on a tease with Alabama (-32) over Colorado State.Texas A&M (-28) over SMU
Chicago Bears (-2 ½ ) over Pittsburgh
New England (-1) over Tampa Bay on a tease with Minnesota (- ½ ) over Cleveland
Seattle Seahawks (-13) over Jacksonville on a tease with Denver (-9) over Oakland.
