NFL Week 12 Picks: Tiger!...Look Out!!!


So in lieu of rushing out my NFL picks for yesterday, I decided to hold them until today and just forgo posting my NCAA picks altogether. The result? I went 12-4-1 in NCAA action yesterday afternoon, and have thus now more than likely put the double reverse hex on this week's NFL picks. But fear not, my Nation lovin' friends. Much like Elin Woods when it comes to preventing her husband from leaving the house, I have a truly elegant solution...

In order to combat the reverse karma hex that I've no doubt placed on myself, I've decided to not make any of this week's selections "Top Picks". I figure then, if logic holds to form, I should have an immaculate record. Hey, I don't know why, but I'm pretty sure this is the way it works. Then again, whenever I seem to have stumbled upon a formula for picking these things consistently, I usually end up having one of my worst weeks of the season. Oh the tangled web we weave when we practice the art of deceit, right? Or something like that...

So here you are, kids. No bells, no whistles, no 5-irons through your Cadillac SUV's back windshield. Just straight picks. Consider them, "leftovers" of sorts...

Now enjoy, and have a great ending to your holiday weekend. I'll catch you all back in the real world within the next 24-48 hours. I'm sure to be on this Tiger Woods thing next week, along with a slew of other topics from SU hoops, to MLB's hot stove. So be there, or Sheed will track you down, and call you soft....and then possibly challenge you to a prosthetic leg duel to the death...

What? That's just how he rolls...

Get put some grav on these bad boys and get your leftover on....

Enjoy...

Minnesota Vikings (-11) vs Chicago Bears

Arizona Cardinals @ Tennessee Titans UNDER 47

Seattle Seahawks (-3.5) @ St. Louis Rams

San Diego Chargers (-13.5) vs Kansas City Chiefs

Baltimore Ravens (-1.5) vs Pittsburgh Steelers


Monday Night Football
New Orleans Saints (-1.5) vs New England Patriots

Hey, what can I say? If this game's on a neutral field, I'd take the Pats. But that's not the case now, is it? Not only do the Pats suck on the road this year (1-3), but in case you hadn't noticed, the Saints are really freakin' good. I'm not buyin' their defense, so you might wanna take a look at the over too (57), but betting on the Pats might not be such a wise move. And if they allow New Orleans to come from behind and beat them in the 2nd half? Well then that's a trend we as Patriot fans might want to actually take note of, and start to be concerned about. Sure it will be better than rehashing 4th and...wait...was it 2 or 3? I can never remember...but another 2nd half collapse of sorts could signal more of an overlying issue than one wrong move by a typically risky coach...

For the record, because I know there are several of you out there that will tell me "Hey Rooch, I read your blog. Can't believe you're gonna be rooting against the Pats this week?!?"; I am cheering for the Pats, and I do want them to win. My job here, is to give betting advice. And if you want to bet on this game, I advise taking the Saints, and the skinny two. And "skinny two" is betting lingo for 1.5 points, not the nickname for that thing growing on the side of Drew Brees' face. I'm pretty sure he calls it "Oscar" or "Teddy"...

Oh but feel free to perpetuate the rumor that his parents named him "Drew" because when he was born the doctor said "Ahhhhh, it looks like somebody 'drew' a shit stain on his face!!". That's a solid rumor, right there, and who are you to attempt to debunk it? Huh? Yeah, I didn't think so...

Mole havin' bastard...
