Free Football Picks

Brought to you by

A bit of a tough week going 1-3, but I will look to rebound this time out, here’s a look at my free Football picks for week 3.  Remember sports gambling is a grind, like anything else in life, we had a bad outing but will pull through in week 3 and make some money.

Cincinnati Bengals @ New York Giants (-13.5, O/U 41.5)

Pick: New York Giants (-13.5) – Cincinnati just might be the worst team in the league, with possibly the crappiest defence.  They have some play makers on offense like Carson Palmer, T.J. Houshmanzadeh and Chad Ocho Cinco, but these players have underachieved big time this year. A lot of the blame for the Bengals offensive deficiencies can be placed on the broad shoulders of their terrible O-line.  The Giants on the other hand are looking like a team that could easily repeat as Super Bowl champs.  Like last week, look for Brandon Jacobs to run wild against a team that can’t stop the run, or the pass or anything really.

Kansas City Chiefs @ Atlanta Falcons (-6, O/U 36.5)

Pick: Atlanta Falcons (-6)- In a battle between two weak teams, I’m going to take the Falcons.  The Chiefs were embarrassed at home last week by the lowly Raiders, with rookie Darren McFadden running all over them, I expect Michael Turner to have similar success against KC’s weak defense.  Tyler Thigpen will make his first career start for the Chiefs, so I am taking the Falcons who will start Matt Ryan who will be making his third career start.

Dallas Cowboys (-3, O/U 51.5) @ Green Bay Packers

Pick: Dallas Cowboys (-3) – This line seemed a little low to me considering Dallas is clearly the best team in the NFL right now, topping every Power Ranking across the continent.  Although Green Bay is also playing well, their wins have come against an average Vikings team, and a well below average Lions squad.  Dallas is coming off a short week, playing last Monday night in one of the best games in a long time, but I don’t think that will affect their performance.  I look for another high scoring, back and forth game with the Cowboys coming out on top by a touchdown.

New York Jets @ San Diego Chargers (-9, O/U 44)

Pick: New York Jets (+9) – The Chargers were robbed of a win last week, when referee Ed Hochuli botched a fumble call late in the game, it was one of the worst calls you will ever see.  The Chargers will be fired up at home on Monday night and I expect them to win, but not by double digits. Expect Ladainian Tomlinson to play, as he has never missed a regular season game due to injury, but he is definitely not at 100 percent.  The Jets have not looked all that good so far this season, but I still believe they are decent and good enough to keep this game close.  This will be Brett Favre’s first prime-time game as a Jet, many people still think that MNF stands for Monday Night Favre and he could have a big game.

Be sure to check back next week with my free football picks for week 4.  We love taking money from the sports books I hope you do to..

Last Week: 1-3                               Season: 3-5
