Sal’s Week 12 NFL Picks…Turkey Edition

Bacon wrapped turducken...I kind of marfed

Last Week: 5-7-2

Season: 75-76-8

My season record has dipped under .500 for the first time since week 2. Wifey also had a terrible week with her random picks going 3-9-2. This NFL season has the most parity we’ve seen in maybe…forever. Other than the Packers who continue to be unstoppable. This season has also been a season full of injuries to fantasy football stars. I’m going to try really hard not to whine, but with Fred Jackson’s season ending injury I have now lost both my starting running backs (the other being Jamaal Charles).  However, there have been notable injuries all over the league like Jay Cutler, Matt Schaub, Kenny Britt, Peyton Hillis, etc. Anyway, I’m short on time this week so I’m going rapid fire with the picks this week. Prrrrat.

Green Bay -6.5 at Detroit

Pick: Packers -6.5, finally a Thanksgiving game in Detroit that means something. Aaron Rodgers is an alien.

Miami at Dallas -7

Pick: Dolphins +7, this is purely because the guy I play in fantasy has 4 Cowboys on his team. Praying for a miracle.

San Fran at Baltimore -3.5

Pick: 49ers +3.5, I’m going to keep rolling with them since they are undefeated against the spread this season

Minnesota at Atlanta -9.5

Pick: Falcons -9.5, No AP for the Vikes means big trouble.

Houston -3.5 at Jacksonville

Pick: Texans -3.5, Yes Matt Leinart is under centre now, but the Texans don’t need to throw with 3 running backs that can plow.

Tampa Bay at Tenn -3.5

Pick: Bucs +3.5, no magic reasons here, just pure gut

Arizona at St. Louis (no line)

Pick: Cardinals, seriously would you actually bet on this game?

Cleveland at Cincy -9

Pick: Bengals -9, Bengals d will be too much for a weak Browns offense to handle

Buffalo at NYJ -9

Pick: Jets -9, the Bills are decimated by injuries and Fitzpatrick will continue to struggle behind a beat-up O-Line.

Carolina -3.5 at Indy

Pick: Panthers -3.5, Cam Newton may throw for 300 and run for 100 in this one.

Washington at Seattle -3.5

Pick: Seahawks -3.5, The Hawks are tough at home and their defense is tough against the run. Grossman being forced to pass is not an ideal situation.

Chicago at Oakland -4

Pick: Raiders -4, No Cutler no win

New England -3 at Philly

Pick: Patriots -3, the dynamic TE duo against a weak linebacker corps means another tough loss for the Eagles

Denver at San Diego -6

Pick: Tebow +6, I can’t back the Chargers right now, they are in pure freefall mode

Pittsburgh -10.5 at KC

Pick: Steelers -10.5, likely a repeat of Pats beatdown last week

NYG at New Orleans -7

Pick: G-men +7, Eli and his receiving crew can keep up with Brees and the boys. The Giants d is coming around.
