Stringer Bell knew about gambling.  Running a multi-million dollar heroin and cocaine operation is a daily parlay of violence and possible incarceration. His speech sums up our season so far. 40 degree fucking day.

We start with The Chode (Season: 6-6)

1. Giants @ Dallas

Line: Dallas -6.5

Chode’s Pick: The GMEN Baby

I know my boys in NY are liking this one. Giants got a Philly style beat down last week, and currently everyone is pretty busy jabbering about how good the Cowboys are. This is the NFL though, and anything can happen. Especially in an NFC East Divisional Game like this one.  Giants pick themselves up off the Canvas and cover this weekend.

2. Houston @ Pittsburgh

Line: Pittsburgh -3.5

Chode’s Pick: Steelers… hate to cheer for the Steelers for any reason, but we’re talking about making money here

Pittsburgh is 3-3 and they have gone W,L,W,L,W,L. Those letters and numbers say it’s time for a W. Also, they are at home on a Monday night. Houston’s three wins are Washington, Oakland, and Buffalo. Can’t say I’m impressed.

Babes (Season: 8-11-1)

1. Baltimore -7: The offensive machine that is the Ravens will keep rolling against a porous Falcon defense. Atlanta can’t stop the run, rush the passer, or defend on the back end. Joe Flacco will pick this defense apart, and watch out because he is playing with the same kind of supreme confidence he did in our Super Bowl run.
The Falcons also won’t be able to protect Matt Ryan, as the rejuvenated Ravens pass rush will harass him all day. The Ravens are 20-10 ATS in October home games when favored by 7 or less. This contest will stay close for awhile, but the Ravens pull away late to win by two scores.

2. NYG+6.5: News flash, Dallas will shit the bed…it’s DALLAS!!! The line moved from 3.5 to 6.5 in a week because of Dallas’ big win in Seattle last week. All trends support taking the points in this contest. The Cowboys are 3-15 ATS when favored after a SU win since 2010. The underdog in Cowboy games are 47-19 ATS since 2010 as well. Meanwhile the Giants have taken 8 of the last 12 meetings straight up against the Boys, so I’m running with the GMen.

3. San Fran+7: This is really just a hunch. I don’t have any numbers to really support either side strongly. Denver does have an extremely big matchup next Thursday with the Chargers to look forward to. A full touchdown just seems like too many points to give a solid Niner team.

Seabass (Season: 8-10)
1. Colts -3: If Andrew Luck and his face can’t bring me a win against the struggling Bengals then I might as well hang it up. I need a win and I’ll lean on the Colts offense at home to get me one. Hopefully this isn’t too obvious.

2. Lions -2. The Saints are a train wreck. On the road they’re a train that wrecked with a buss full of baby seals awful. The Lions D will see Brees and his high powered offense as a challenge. They’ll live up to it. Lay the points.
