NFL Week 8. Let's Ring the Register

Week 8 in the NFL and we are starting to figure out what is what.  This is the heart of the schedule and Vegas feels like they have a beat on every team. Injuries are more important than ever when setting lines and quarterback play seems to be the key to every game. The goal is to be above 60% for the year, and we are 11-7 in the NFL to date for a 61% mark.  A good 7-3 day in the college games yesterday took us to 26-18, 59%, back on track. Let's ring the register with some good value plays today.

Dallas -6.5 vs. Jacksonville
Ding, ding, ding. This is a five star ***** pick. Get involved in a big way. Jon Kitna isn't Tony Romo, but Dallas will move the ball on the ground and I look for their defense to come up big against a banged up David Garrard. I haven't liked a play this much since the Steelers were -3 in Tampa in week 3. Mortgage money.

New York Jets -6 vs. Green Bay
The Jets have covered their last five and twelve of their last fifteen. Everyone knows Green Bay is banged up and I'm shocked Vegas didn't give them at least a touchdown. LT is having a great season and is one of the feel good stories of the year. Look for him to hit paydirt twice more this week and the Jets to cover this one at home.

I don't see much else that looks great. My leans, but not plays would be Miami +1 at Cincinnati and San Diego -4.5 vs. Tennessee.  Happy Halloween!

UPDATE: Wow. I guess if you are going to be wrong, you might as well get smoked. Who would have believed the football season would end before the baseball season in Dallas? What an embarrassment.

Nice picks dude. . . both losers (big ones!) You owe me a black and gold in NYC for the Pens game Wed night for the lost $

Yep, sorry. Dallas game was horrific. They are terrible. Season on the line I obviously figured they would do better. Small silver lining is the Jets loss helps the Steelers. Hopefully you hit on the college picks yesterday.

No problamo, I picked both games as well (prior to seeing your picks). . . just thought I would deflect the blame to ease the pain. Alas, it didn't work :(
