Razor NFL Week 6 #2

Patriots/Bills One of the best spots to back an elite team is when they are playing a lesser opponent but taking them seriously. The New York Jets have won three straight games and are tied with the New England Patriots at 3-2 towards the top of the NFC East division. With 10 days to prepare and get healthy, I expect the Patriots to show up and play with full effort against the Jets. The Jets were in good spots their last 3...

2017 Big Ten Football Picks – Week # 7

Last week was a frustrating one that resulted in a 1-2 record that dropped me back down below .500 for the season. As of today, I am 8-9 on the 2017 season.     Pick of the Week – Maryland (+3) vs. Northwestern – 3:30 on ESPN2 The Maryland Terrapins have been wiped out in two of the past three contests. They lost in ugly fashion to Central Florida and then were completely dominated by the Ohio State Buckeyes last...

2017 SEC Pick of the Week – Week Seven

Welp, that was a disaster so we’re going to keep this brief. Not only did we miss on our pick of the week – Kentucky favored by ten against Missouri, won by six – but my Gators took one on the chin from LSU. Full disclosure: In my defense, Saturday turned out to be moving day, so I blame myself for not being there for them in their time of need. Anyways, we hit on the upset alert but nothing else. Back to...

West Coast Bias – Week Seven Plays

YTD: 15-18  LW: 2-3 115 Northwestern -3.5 – Last week we saw Maryland get destroyed by Ohio State and in that game the Terps lost their third-string QB Bortenschlager with a nasty hit to the head.  He is supposedly going to start this week, however the Terps may need to turn to fourth string QB Henderson in this contest if he can’t go.  The Kitties come in after a loss last week against Penn State and will look...

NFL Week 6

Giants/Broncos The Denver Broncos are coming off a bye and New York Giants are just absolutely swarmed by the injury bug. It’ll be tough for the NYG to move the ball on offense in a very tough environment. I’m not worried about a backdoor cover by Eli if Denver is up and ready, and I see this Broncos running game wearing down this Giants defense as the game progresses. Two things that I look for in the rare...

“Shorestein Says” NFL Picks – Week 6

Week 6 “Shorestein Says” Picks of the Week   LA Rams @ Jacksonville -2.5:  How bout that Jags D?! The Jaguars have come a long way and now rank #1 in defensive passer rating at 56.9!  Some may see this as a fluke, but this trend of excellent play started at the end of last season.  The young, athletic talent is popping on this defense, and I think it will continue to shine against Goff as he struggles with top notch...

BoomTown’s BreakDown CFB Week 6

What’s shakin’, BoomTown? This CFB season is just friggin’ flying by. We’ve had ups, we’ve had downs, but we’ve kept it real the whole way through. Good news this week is that my kids don’t have games until Sunday, therefore, we can get some extra focus on Saturday adds. Tough to do on the sidelines as I’m trying to coach. Nevertheless, I got a plethora of games cemented in...
