The NFL playoffs will start on Saturday the 9th with 4 games in the WildCard Round.
New York Jets +3(-125) at Cincinnati Bengals -3(+105) – 34(1/2) o/u
The Jets come off a victory of 37-0 in week 17 against the Bengals. Along with the Jets winning 7 of the last 8 against the Bengals. I think you can’t go wrong taking the Jets for +3.
Prediction: Jets +3
Philadelphia Eagles +4 at Dallas Cowboys -4 – 45 o/u
The Eagles lost in week 17 to the Cowboys 24-0 in a game that had meaning with the winning team getting home field advantage. Though Philadelphia has beaten the Cowboys 6 times in the last 7 games. They both went 11-5 for the season. I think with the Eagles recent loss to the Cowboys the handicappers are pushing people to go for the eagles which I think is a good bet. I think the game will be decided by 3 and picking the eagles will win you the bet.
Prediction: Eagles +4
Baltimore Ravens +31/2(-115) at New England Patriots -31/2(-105) – 43 o/u
Last week the Ravens barely beat the Raiders while the Patriots lost to Houston but the biggest news of week 17 was the Patriots lost Wes Welker for the season. This is Tom Brady’s go to receiver and will definitely will be an issue for the Patriots offense. In the last 5 match-ups between the teams the Baltimore Ravens have lost all 5. I still think Wes Welker along with a strong Ravens D will cause problems for the Patriots and I am going to take Baltimore +4.
Prediction: Baltimore +4
Green Bay Packers (+1) at Arizona Cardinals (-1) – 47 o/u
In week 17 the packers dominated the Cardinals 33-7. It is hard to bet when you don’t know who is going to show up for the Cardinals. They handily defeated the Vikings but then lost against the niners. Green Bay has won 6 out of the last 7 against the Cardinals and Green Bay looks to have a good rhythm right now. I am going to go with the Packers +1.
Prediction: Packers +1

It is Week 5 of the NFL, we got through week 4 which had some of the weakest match ups so far this season. We all knew Raiders were pitiful but 44-7 with Giants players saying it felt more like a scrimmage basically sums up the games last week.
NFL Week 5 has some better match ups along with a couple double digit lines. There is definitely two tiers in the NFL you are either a legit playoff contender or a team that will be happy to win 3-4 games this season.
Games to Watch – NFL Week 5 Odds
Baltimore Ravens (3) vs Minnesota Vikings (-3) - Can Favre & Pedersen lead the Vikings over the Ravens defense. Offshore sportsbooks seem to think so with an advantage of a field goal.
My Opinion: I tend to think the Vikings with the passing & running threat will be able to beat the Ravens . I would pick the Vikings by -3.
New York Giants (3) vs New Orlean Saints (-3) – The Saints are coming off their bye week and have to take on the Giants who are also undefeated. The Giants beat the Raiders easily and effectively last week but now taken on a much better offense and defense. This is the must watch game of the week and whoever wins this will likely be the NFC favorite.
My Opinion: This is a tough game to pick, I know it will be close but I am going to go for the Giants to cover the spread.
Denver Broncos (3.5) vs. San Diego Chargers (-3.5) - Will LT come back and be effective (I hope so, I have him in fantasy..he is killing me)? Broncos beat the Patriots last week and are 5-0 but they had a couple close wins and could easily have another loss or two.
My Opinion: I am going to take another favorite and choose the Chargers.

The 2009 NFL draft was held on Saturday the April 25th as well as finishing on the 26th. There wasn’t much surprise with the first pick as the Detriot Lions took quarterback Matthew Stafford as the first pick of the draft. They came to terms with him on the 24th so when they selected him on Saturday it wasn’t a surprise.
The top 10 in the Draft:
1. Matthew Stafford QB – Lions
2. Jason Smith OT – Rams
3. Tyson Jackson DE – Chiefs
4. Aaron Curry OLB – Seahwaks
5. Mark Sanchez QB – Jets
6. Andre Smith OT – Bengals
7. Darrius Heyward-Bey WR – Raiders
8. Eugene Monroe OT – Jaguars
9. B.J. Raji DT – Packers
10. Michael Crabtree WR – 49ers
One of the surprise picks was the first WR taken from the draft was Darrius Heyward-Bey picked by the Oakland Raiders. Crabtree was definitely the better rated WR but dropped down to #10 picked by the 49ers. It was said that Al Davis liked the speed of Herward-Bey and chose to forgo anyalsts pick of the best WR in the draft.
