2017 NFL Week 6 – Betting Picks Against Spread

I went 8-5-1 last week against the spread.

I once again hit all the late games and went 1-0-1 ATS on Sunday and Monday nights. I just need to do better on my Thursday and early game picks. I would have hit the Thursday game, but current former Tampa Bay kicker Nick Folk forgot how to use his feet.

This is the first week I have noticed a big uptick in double-digit point spreads. Those will become more rampant as the season goes on, but I didn’t find this week’s double-digit point spreads to be egregious.

Can the Chiefs keep winning and beat the Steelers Sunday afternoon?

Will my Thursday Night Football streak of futility snap this week?

We pick ever NFL game against the spread and throw out a few upsets in Week 6 of the 2017 NFL season.

The Rams Should Start Jared Goff Now

Jared-Goff-Los-Angeles-Rams-NFL-Week-2The Los Angeles Rams looked horrible in their Week 1 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football.

The Rams started Case Keenum at quarterback, who looked overwhelmed for nearly the entire game. He threw 35 passes and only average 3.7 yards per attempt…he also threw two interceptions.

The Rams used the #1 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft on quarterback Jared Goff, but he was third on the depth chart on Monday night, behind former Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion.

Head coach Jeff Fisher announced that he isn’t sure if Goff will be the backup or third-string this Sunday against the Seahawks.

2016 Fantasy Football Rankings – Top 50 Running Backs

funny todd gurley los angeles rams nfl 2016 fantasy football rankings running backsIt’s hard to believe that in just a few short weeks, it will officially be acceptable to wear hoodies in public. I love hoodies, but there’s something freakish about seeing a guy in July wearing one.

The running back position isn’t as deep as quarterback, but you should be able to find some good value late in the draft…but if you want a ‘workhorse’ running back, the pickings are slim.

Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles has been at the top of fantasy rankings the last handful of years. There are a few new names near the top this season, with one second-year running back sitting atop our rankings this season.

Here are our top 50 running backs for the 2016 fantasy football season.

2015 NFL Team Preview: St. Louis Rams

weird st louis rams 2015 nfl team season preview nick folesThe Rams offense got a face-lift this offseason. They literally traded the face of the franchise (Sam Bradford) for what possibly could become the new face (Nick Foles). It was a trade that left many scratching their heads on both sides of the trade. People are still wondering what is wrong with Foles, that we don’t already know, that Philly would trade for the often-injured Bradford.

The NFC West has been one of the best divisions in the NFL. Seattle, San Francisco and Arizona have all made the postseason at least once (if not all three years) in the last three seasons. The Rams have been stuck in the basement. After selecting high in the last few drafts, are they ready to take it to the next level?

How will Foles fare in his first season with the Rams?

Here is the 2015 NFL team preview for the St. Louis Rams.

Should Rams Sign Nick Foles to Long-Term Contract?

Nick Foles St Louis Rams NFL contractThe St. Louis Rams currently have a big decision to make. Do they let their newly-acquired quarterback Nick Foles play out his contract year or do they sign him to a long-term contract?

St. Louis acquired Foles from Philadelphia for often-injured quarterback Sam Bradford and a swap of draft picks.

Bradford wore out his welcome in St. Louis after being drafted #1 overall in the 2010 NFL Draft. He couldn’t stay healthy and clearly needed a change of scenery.

Foles has also dealt with his fair share of injuries in his first three years in the NFL. He’s coming off a broken collarbone injury that ended his season early in 2014.

Should the Rams see what they have with Foles before backing up the money truck?

The Colts are going into this draft with a huge question mark at running back. Two seasons ago, they traded a first round pick to Cleveland for Trent Richardson, but that hasn’t worked out…at all. They are now wrapped up in nasty situation in which Indy could try to void his contract.
