It appears the NFL “blue state” teams will win 9 and the “red state” squads will come up short with only 5 victories. Two of the 14 games are being played in the ‘battleground’ state of Ohio.
Set your wall clocks back an hour early this Sunday…
the USA is finally going fall to normal back on standard time.
The New Jersey Jets and St. Louis Lambs really need to sleep in Sunday in order to recoup from embarrassing loses last Sunday.
Fortunately, the Jets, Rams, 49ers, and Patriots have the day off on this their annual bye-bye week.
This weekend features more grrrreat play by rookie quarterbacks.
Indiana is lucky to have the blue and white Colts at home in the dome. After a 30-9 flooding of the Jets, the Dolphins have been forecasted as the 3 point favorite. Rookie Miami QB Ryan Tannehill and Colt QB Andrew Luck are playing very well, thus Ike is selecting Indy as the ‘home dog of the week.’
Lady Luck shall shine through the Lucas Dome on her favorite son.
Indiana voted ‘blue’ in support of President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden during the 2008 election. Hoosiers should stick with what America has going for it. Both the Colts and Pacers don’t wear a single speck of red on their uniforms.
The Carolina Panthers at Washington Redskins’ game matches up the last two Heisman Trophy winning quarterbacks. Robert Griffin III’s Blueskins are favored over Cam Newton’s cats that could not score enough against the Blue State Bears last weekend.
- Ike suggests either the DC Blueskins over or the NC Cats under.

The best game may be played after 4:25 pm EST. The 6-2 New Jersey Giants host the 5-3 Pittsburgh Steelers. Both won and also beat the spread last Sunday. Can you believe the NYG are favored by 5?
These offenses are piloted by former Super Bowl MVPs Eli Manning and Big Ben Roethlisberger, who will be facing defenses that have allowed only 144 and 161 points so far this season.

A political litmus test is happening in Cincinnati and Cleveland. Should both the Bengals and Browns win, the entire national election will be thrown in the Republican’s favor. NOTE: This is highly unlikely.
- Denver at Bengals – Peyton Manning returns to play in the Midwest. The Cat’s defense will find him too difficult to hold down. Cincy has already given up 187 points in seven games this year. Denver keeps scoring when they have to and now hold the division lead in the American West.
- Ravens at Browns – Meanwhile, the Cleveland Browns are in last place in the American South division. Funny that the Brownies wreaked out a 7-6 victory last Sunday. The first place Baltimore Ravens have had an extra week of practice only to prepare for the game.
In other games this Week Nine:
The Arizona Cardinals will find the cold weather and ‘blue-state’ hot Green Bay Packers (-10.5) play overwhelming.
Ike likes the Chicago Bears (-4.5) in Nashville against the Tennessee Titans.
Ike also likes the 7 and oh, undefeated ‘red-state’ Atlanta Falcons (-3.5) at home against the Dallas Cowboys.
Ike likes the last team who almost beat the Falcons to win in the blue state of California. Tampa Bay will feel the jet lag and Oakland black hole while losing out to the Raiders (-1.5).
Two Important Tips:
- Watch out for those pink penalty flags!
- Beware of betting on the following:
Eagles @ Saints (-2) on Monday night
Vikings @ Seahawks (-2.5)
Lions @ Jaguars (+3.5)
Bills @ Texans (-11)
Chiefs @ Chargers (-7.5)
There will be no ties this week – only winners and losers.
We’re wishing you the best of American life in a ‘blue state.’
Good luck and enjoy the games!
