I am the Gridiron Great, and I have been handicapping the NFL for a number of years. I've learned the ins and outs of what it takes to beat the bookies at this game, and I know just how difficult it can be. Do you think you can beat me at my own game? Every week that you do, you'll be entered into a grand prize drawing at the end of the season for a $1,000 Oddsmaker Sportsbook account. Even if you don't beat me though, you can still collect a $100 account from Oddsmaker just by having the most picks correct amongst Cappers Info readers.
There is no greater time to try to get into this competition than right now, as every week you beat me gives you another opportunity at that big cash prize at the end of the year. Let's get started right now with my Week 6 picks…
San Diego Chargers @ St. Louis Rams (+8.5) – Underdogs have treated me well in recent weeks, and I'm hoping that this isn't an exception. There is just something wrong with the Chargers right now, and I can't quite put my finger on it as to why. Special teams absolutely collapsed at the outset against the Oakland Raiders last week, and the defense just wasn't good enough to keep the silver and black off the field. If the Raiders are succeeding like that, the Rams should be able to do much of the game. I don't need a win. I just need a good showing. No doubt, St. Louis +8.5.
Kansas City Chiefs @ Houston Texans (-4.5) – The Texans just burned me and just about everybody else on Sunday against the New York Giants, but I'm still giving them another chance anyway. You don't beat Houston by running the ball. You beat Houston by throwing it. That's something that the Chiefs just can't do right now. The offense will bog down, and when push comes to shove, QB Matt Schaub and WR Andre Johnson are due for an absolute explosion. Don't be shocked if this one turns ugly quickly, as I have no reservations about the Texans -4.5.
Baltimore Ravens (+2.5) @ New England Patriots – Unless you think that you're getting a blocked kick, a blocked punt, and a pick six in this one New England, you don't stand a chance. The Ravens are out to prove that they are the best team in the NFL, and the way that they can do that is by making GQ boy over there, QB Tom Brady go curl into a ball and want to hide. The lesson you should've taken away from last week's game with the Denver Broncos: One dimensional offenses don't work against this team. This won't be an exception. Take the roadies here with Baltimore +2.5.
New Orleans Saints @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+5.5) -Right now, there isn't a team in the NFL that I'd be backing the Saints with on the road. They need to get a running game together and soon. The Tampa Bay secondary is good enough to put a real crimp in New Orleans' plan to just run away and hide from the NFC South at some point. Don't be shocked if there's another upset in the cards. I'm going with the gritty Bucs +5.5.
Atlanta Falcons (+3) @ Philadelphia Eagles – This is yet another one of those games that the Falcons just seem to have a radar for how to win. Atlanta does seem to be bothered by anything, especially when QB Matt Ryan is able to stand in the pocket and deliver throws. There might not be a better team in the NFC than the men in black and red, and they'll be out to prove it regardless of who is throwing passes for the Iggles. The prospects of potentially seeing QB Michael Vick go against his former team are fun, but we still think that Atlanta +3 is the right play.
Detroit Lions (+10) @ New York Giants – Everyone who thinks that the G-Men are still a joke, please raise your right hands… Ok, at least there are a few of you that are inevitably going to be smart in this one and realize that New York has no business laying double digits to anyone in the NFL, especially a stingy Detroit team. I tend to believe that the Lions this year could be one of the best ATS teams in the history of the game just due to the fact that they have to play a ton of games like this one on the schedule where they are just getting no respect. I'm backing Detroit +10.
Seattle Seahawks @ Chicago Bears (-7) – Wee! QB Jay Cutler is back! Anyone who ever thought that the media in the Windy City would be praying to see Cutler back in the lineup…….. Anyway, the Seahawks still aren't worth a damn thing away from Qwest Field, and we tend to believe that the men from the Midway can put together another great defensive showing. A win by at least a TD seems to be a formality as long as Cutler hasn't been taking lessons from QB Todd Collins while he has been watching on the sidelines… Chicago -7.
Miami Dolphins @ Green Bay Packers (OTB) – Note: This game WILL NOT be a part of the competition in Week 6. Sorry folks. Until I know whether QB Aaron Rodgers is playing in this one or not, no picks. For what it's worth, regardless of whether Rodgers plays or not, I tend to believe that the Fins are the right side.
Cleveland Browns (+14) @ Pittsburgh Steelers – So let's get this straight. Cleveland is probably going to end up taking a rookie quarterback in his first career outing into Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers, who are getting their suspended quarterback back in the lineup for the first time all season? Bwahahahahaha! I'll take the Steelers' defense and special teams -14 against the Browns and forget about the offense. Good luck, QB Colt McCoy. Hope your life insurance policy is paid up. Pittsburgh -14.
New York Jets @ Denver Broncos (+3) – This Denver team, for whatever reason, is one that I think I have a good feel for. This week, their one dimensional offensive attack takes on the Jets, who can stop just about anything in their way. However, HC Josh McDaniels isn't a dummy. We've said this several times before. The ball leaves QB Kyle Orton's hands incredibly quickly, which should leave for a lot of one-on-one opportunities on the inside of this defense. It could be a huge day of WR Demaryius Thomas if he is used properly, as WR Brandon Lloyd will probably be stuck on Revis Island if DB Darrelle Revis gives it a go. We don't buy that QB Mark Sanchez can keep this going forever, and the front seven of the Broncos is strong enough to stop this run. Going with Denver +3 to pull off the outright upset.
Oakland Raiders (+6.5) @ San Francisco 49ers – And I thought that all of the crappy teams were on bye this week… Forgot about these stiffs in San Fran… Oakland +6.5 for me.
Dallas Cowboys @ Minnesota Vikings (-1) – Man, what an ugly game this could be. The loser of this one is going to have four losses on the year, and many weren't so sure if either of these teams were going to lose four games all season long, let alone in their first five. This could be QB Brett Favre's last stand before getting suspended by the NFL for texting pictures of his goodies to former FSU Cowgirl and New York Jets sideline eye candy, Jenn Sterger. Here's hoping that both of these teams fall off the face of the earth and let teams that really want to be in the postseason get there. As far as the pick… geez… Minnesota -1… I guess…
Indianapolis Colts (-3.5) @ Washington Redskins – Remember to make your tiebreaker picks in this game!!! Ok, QB Peyton Manning. It's Sunday Night Football. Time to wake up and lead your team to a resounding victory so we can all rest easily, knowing that you are still the great Peyton Manning and that this is your world that we are just playing in. The 'Skins are a farce and won't finish .500. Indianapolis -3.5 to round out Sunday.
