Weekly NFL Picks Against the Point Spread

  The weekly NFL picks are here at last! I'll be pinch hitting for 3k this week. When I talked to him by phone last night, he was working late at his second job. He couldn't tell me much about his work, saying only that it had something to do with terpsichorean ecdysiasts and floor to ceiling brass poles...  

  Last week, I decided to offer a chance for everyone to prove how great they are when picking against the point spread. The winner won a new jersey, and an exclusive membership in Team TST... OK, I made Kuhl join by holding his new jersey until he agreed. The things he's willing to do for a Tim Masthay - woman's size small jersey... Make sure you read Kuhl's excellent observations on each NFL game this week. You'll find it just after the picks chart!  

Here are our #10 Weekly NFL Picks:

Thanks Douglas,

Here’s my picks:
San Diego.  A combination of San Diego’s recent offensive success and Oakland’s struggles will make this an easy win for the Chargers.

Kansas City.  Still don’t buy Tebowmania…

Jacksonville.  Peyton Manning’s MVP candidacy continues to sky rocket.

New Orleans.  Falcons still aren’t built for a shootout.  ‘Nawlins wins a high scoring affair.

Houston.  Not sold on the Bucs yet…

Pittsburgh.  Steelers have been inconsistent, but the Lebeau 3-4 will wreak havoc on Andy Dalton.

Tennessee.  I don’t like either of these teams, but I have to choose someone…

Buffalo. Tony Romo (of Burlington, WI!) finds a way to choke away yet another game.

St Louis.  Rams finally get their 2nd win.

Washington.  Mike Shanahan’s team hasn’t been very good, but they are better than the ‘Phins
Baltimore.  I’m kind of surprised that Vegas is only giving 7 points.

New York Giants. One of these days Alex Smith will remember that he’s Alex Smith.  I think that the G-Men’s D-line will make that happen.

Chicago. I’ll take the Bears at home as the Lions offense gets slowed down by Soldier Field’s torn-up grass.

New England.  Patriots get back on track
Philadelphia. Eagles have been a disappointment, but so has Kolb (and he may not play)

Vikings Packers win the game, but only 2 of the past 13 games of the series have had a point differential of at least 14. (Nov. 2010, Nov. 2007)

Bonus Picks:  Mizzou beats Texas, U-Dub (University of Wisconsin) crushes the Gophers.

Thanks again!

Kyle (Kuhl)
