FORTUNETELLING FOOTBALL (THE FINAL SUNDAY IN FOOTOBER!) FOOTLOOSE AND FANCY FREE
It may be simpler to predict this weekend’s weather than NFL scores.
BTW, upsets by visiting teams are more than possible. U, 2, have gotta’ like the chances of these 4 teams.
1st, bet on the sure thing. The Bills, Ravens, Texans, and Bengals cannot lose this weekend; it is their annual bye-bye Sunday.
Jump ahead and take the Niners (-4.5) on the road in Arizona for Monday night. Forget about Hurricane Sandy; she will have nothing to do with this game.
Eliminate the unknown. For instance, either both QB Brees or Manning are best known for leading a fourth quarter comeback. (Saints @ Broncos). Also don’t play teams that have been inconsistent, incontinent, and unpredictable this season (Seahawks @ Lions AND Dolphins @ Jets).
Next, cat lovers, choose a home team favorite of your own liking remembering that the Lions and Bengals are “out of play”:
Chicago Bears (-6.5) vs. Panthers
Green Bay (-12.5) vs. Jaguars
Minnesota (-5.5) vs. Buccaneers
Now comes the really fun part.
Take the handicapping points for two, three, or four underdogs playing on the road:
Indianapolis Colts (+2.5) at Tennessee Oiler Titans *
Oakland Raider and Raiderettes (+1.5) at K.C. BBQ Chiefs **
New Jersey Giants (+2.5) at Dallas Cowpokes ***
Atlanta Undefeated Falcons (+2.5) at Philadelphia Eagles ****

Good luck and enjoy the games!

* The Tennessee team is benching the QB that won last Sunday in favor of sophomore Jake Locker that is getting off the injury list. This gives the edge to rookie pro QB with a great college education Andrew Luck and the Colts.
** The Raider defense held the Jags to 209 yards last Sunday. “Seabass” Janikowski made four field goals and two extra points!
*** NYG Manning made 8 of 12 third down conversions in last Sunday’s road victory in D.C. QB T. Romo only made 6 of 14 for Dallas in Carolina.
**** Both teams return to finish their schedule after a bye-bye week. Let’s see who mended better following rough games against the Steelers and Raiders.
Njoy your weekNda wherever U may B!
