THE DEGENERATE REPORT: SECOND EDITION
Picking football games can be tough, and that’s why you turn to the Degenerate Report, who went 4-2 last week. We have NFL games for you. We have a couple of College Games for you too. Because let’s face it, we all have a little degenerate in us. Every once in a while we let it out, and that’s alright.
Here are your picks for the weekend.
Lions Vs. Vikings -6: Hand up guys, I got the lions wrong last week. I expected more, and Patricia didn’t come through. That’s okay though because you learn from your mistakes. I’ll continue to bring my lunch pale to work every day and get better. This week is pretty easy. The lions are overmatched here. The Vikings are just the better overall team. I don’t see the lions sticking around in this one.
Pick: Vikings -6
Chiefs Vs. Browns +9: The more things change, the more they stay the same. You can always count on the Browns being a joke. This year is no different. The team is a mess, but for the first time, this year they actually have a head coach that is somewhat serious. Unfourtently they are running into the wagon that is the Kansas City Chiefs. This is an easy one and the more you think about it, the easier it gets.
Picks: Chiefs -9
Rams vs. Saints +2: This weekend we have two BIG games. This is the first of them, and if you love an offensive showdown, this is the game for you. These two teams are the two best in the NFC. The Rams have shown all season they are the best team in the NFC, but they head into the Super Dome and onto Drew Brees turf. I picked the Saints last week, and at this moment in time, I think they are playing slightly better football.
Pick: Saints +2
Packers Vs. Patriots -6: I love this game. The two greatest quarterbacks are going to be battling it out in epic fashion. If you don’t tune in to watch Brady vs. Rodgers, are you really a football fan? I personally can’t wait. From a picking standpoint, the smart money is on the Pats. They are just the better overall team. That said you can never count out a Rodgers lead Packers team. He single-handedly makes the Packers what they are, and without him, they would be a bottom feeder team.
Pick: Pats -6
BONUS COLLEGE PICKS
Georgia Tech Vs. UNC +5: The triple option offense gives a lot of teams fits. This week is no different. I don’t think this UNC team is very good and GA Tech is going to play competitive, tough football. This game should go Ga Techs way.
Pick: Ga Tech -5
Oklahoma vs. Texas Tech +13.5: This spread is a big one, and that’s why I like it. Look Oklahoma is an outstanding offensive football team, and that’s why you would pick them to win. But we aren’t picking outright winners. I have serious questions about the Oklahoma defense even though they have improved recently. They are going up against an offense that is averaging 42 points a game and can score in a hurry. Plus since 2014 when the Red Raiders are home underdogs of 10.5 or more, they are 3-0 against the spread.
Pick: Texas Tech +13.5
