Three-team teaser:

Eagles (pick) over Dolphins, with Chiefs (-1) over Raiders and Carolina (-1) against Redskins

I got burned by Dallas on Thanksgiving, and upon further review should have moved Buffalo up instead. Love that hindsight stuff. Hey, I made a mistake in thinking the Cowboys would at least find a way to win if they didn’t get the W. It’s a learning moment. Anyway, I think these three teams are all going to win, and that’s all they have to do. OK, I shouldn’t have used the word all. But you get the point. That’s what teasers are all about. Sometimes it actually works. And yes, I have been cashing a bunch of them lately. So there.

Two-team teaser:

Packers (-.5) over Giants and Cardinals (+10) over Rams

Again, don’t think the Pack will lose two in a row, at least not to the Giants even if it’s in New York. And the Pack looked really bad in losing their last one, for whatever that might mean. In the other one, I’m not sure the Cards will win, but the Rams haven’t looked good at all and the home team seems to find a way to play a lot of close ones if nothing else. Here’s looking for one more.

Jets (-3.5) over Bengals

Maybe the Jets are due to go back to being the Jets, but the Bengals ain’t much, even if they’re going back to Andy Dalton at QB. I’m hoping the Jets’ run continues, even away from the Meadowlands.

Chargers (-2.5) over Broncos

Not in love with either team, but the Broncs’ QB situation seems to be getting worse. And the Chargers can play some D. I’m a little concerned that Denver plays so many tight games. Still, at some point the Chargers have to play more like the team they were supposed to be, right?

Seahawks (-3) over Vikings

On Monday night, I’m going with the home team. Seattle didn’t look great against the Birds, but it didn’t have to. Think Russell Wilson will play much better in this one, and he might have to. Vikes are coming off a bye, and their QB has been playing like a guy who got paid a lot of money. Maybe the 12th man can be the difference.

Patriots (-3) over Texans

Bill Belichick has owned his former assistants. This is another one of those situations. Maybe Bill O’Brien is due to get one, after five Ls, or at least cover. I know the Pats haven’t looked like world-beaters lately, but all they do is one. And they don’t have to win this one by much to make us some money. Though I have to admit I’m a big DeShaun Watson guy and hate to go against him. But it’s a business, nothing personal.

Be on the lookout for golf stuff too. I might even have to make a pick on the unofficial World Hero Challenge that Tiger hosts from the Bahamas.
