2017 Weekly NFL Picks (week 7)

2017 Weekly NFL Picks (week 7)

what a week for the NFL, as the action starts to get very interesting. Its time to separate the contenders from the pretenders. Time to start with a few notes from the league, before we get to our picks. How about the smashing debut of Adrian Peterson (in a Cardinals uniform) racking up 100 yards. At least he cannot say he signed up for 10 snaps this time. If there is a chance Andrew Luck is going to play in 2017? Now would be the time, but there has been (reportedly)  a setback due to his shoulder issues. Plus the season is just about half old, time flies when you are having fun. Its an understatement for the 49ers and Browns, they still have no wins on the season. They are not going 0-16, but at somepoint a win needs to happen. Finally, the NFL dropped the ball once again on both the national anthem, and the Ezekiel Elliot suspension. Come on NFL, please settle this malarkey already.  I feel bad for the Packers as they lost Aaron Rodgers (possibly for the season) for a while, and there super bowl hopes are dashed unless Brett Favre is available. So now for my picks as this season is not going my way, as i went 7-7 (in week 6) again. This season im 50-41, so i am way off my pace from this time last season. Now time for a great week as the week 7 picks start now:

2017 Weekly NFL Picks (week 6)

2017 Weekly NFL Picks (week 6)

What a week for the National Football League, as stories are happening everywhere. Before I get to my picks, there are a few notes from the league that are worth discussing. The NFL has won its case (on appeal) against Ezekiel Elliot and its 6-game suspension. Ben Rothlisberger and his on going frustrations with the Steelers. Dominique Rogers-Carmatie getting suspended by the New York Giants, after an argument with Head Coach Ben McAdoo (by the way is on the hot seat now). Now Sean Combs wants to buy the NFL, and I don’t see it happening anytime soon. There are other headlines going on, but cannot get to them all. Now for the picks, as I took it on the chin again. In week 5, I was 7-7 and for the season I’m 43-34. So here comes my week 6 picks:

Thursday Night:

Eagles over Panthers

Falcons over Dolphins

Packers over Vikings

Ravens over Bears

Lions over Saints

2017 Weekly NFL Picks (Week 5)

How about this NFL season so far, are you hooked yet? I know I have after several weeks, due to a lot of intrigued storylines. The Titans may have to go without Marcus Mariotta (hamstring), but they signed Brandon Weeden instead of Colin Kaepernick. Really Tennessee Titans who is making the decisions there. Then there is the donut bowl (0 wins on the season) Chargers vs Giants. Now there is a matchup that i am looking forward to, nah not really. Its such a tragedy that we have 3 teams that have not won a game yet, yes Cleveland Browns i am talking about you too. As for my picks, took another one on the chin with my picks, even though i did a little better. In week 4 i was 9-7, and for the season i am now 36-27. So now time for the week 5 picks.

Jets over Browns
Bills over Bengals
Lions over Panthers

2017 NFL Weekly Picks (Week 4)

2017 NFL Weekly Picks (Week 4)

What a week for the NFL, being in the news for the all the wrong reasons. Enough talk about are they, or wont they kneel or stay out for the national anthem. See this was the result of the saga Colin Kaepernick has caused. Can we get on with more football, please!! I feel bad for the Detroit Lions, they had victory until a reversal destroy there hopes. Sorry Lions fans but i have to say this, i am glad that i am not a fan of your team. By the way, the Cincinnati Bengals should go 0-16 for the way there season is going. I am too embarrassed for them, how do you allowed the Packers to comeback and win. Now for my picks, it was so bad that i went under .500 (winning percentage). In week 3 i was 7-9, and for the season im 27-20. Now time for the week 4 picks and a bounce back week.

2017 Week 3 NFL Picks

2017 Week 3 NFL Picks

Well its looks like the mighty have fallen for some teams. Before we get to the picks, here are a few notes from the league. It time to clean house in Indy? With Andrew Luck yet to make his 2017 debut, Chuck Pagano is on the hot seat for sure. Its time for a win and they need to do it soon. The continue saga of one Colin Kaepernick, is he going to even get a chance to play this season? Finally, the NFL tried there darn hardest to make that Ezekiel Elliot suspension stick in the courts. However, they were denied (for now) but its not over. It will drag on into the next off season, remember Tom Brady’s suspension was eventually reinstated. Cowboys fans be aware that you won’t have your running back, if the NFL has its way. Last week was a smashing success on my picks as i went 12-4 in week 2, and for the season im 20-11. Now for the week 3 picks:

Thursday Night:

Rams over 49ers

Early Sunday:

Ravens over Jaguars (Sunday Morning Game)
Panthers over Saints
Broncos over Bills
Steelers over bears

Colts over Browns
Buccaneers over Vikings

2017 Week 2 NFL Picks

2017 Week 2 NFL Picks

What a great start to this NFL season, let’s start with a few notes from around the league. The homecoming for Adrian Peterson did not go so well, as he was limited to less than 20 yards. Saints go on to lose to the Vikings, in Minneapolis. Could the Colts be in a lot of trouble? No Andrew Luck for a while, and the Colts look terrible. Now there is a possibility of the Colts moving on from Luck? There could go after Alex Smith who could be on his way out in Kansas City. The second week of the regular season is upon us, and now some teams are in must win mode already. Last week I went 8-7 but it’s the opening week. Now for the Week 2 picks:

Thursday night

Texans over Bengals

Early Sunday

Buccaneers over Bears
Cardinals over Colts
Chiefs over Eagles
Patriots over Saints
Steelers over Vikings
Panthers over Bills
Titans over Jaguars
Ravens over Browns

Late Sunday

2017 Weekly NFL Picks (Week 1)

2017 Weekly NFL Picks (Week 1)

How about this, another football season has arrived. So it’s time for another season of my weekly NFL picks. I did not do a preview this year, too many predictions and scenarios to factor in.

It will be played in November, and now on to my Week 1 picks:

Falcons over Bears
Ravens over Bengals
Cardinals over Lions
Texans over Jaguars
Raiders over Titans
Redskins over Eagles

Steelers over Browns

Late Sunday:

Rams over Colts

My 2017 Stanley Cup Finals preview + pick

My 2017 Stanley Cup Finals preview + pick

How about this NHL postseason so far. It’s been a great one, maybe the best in a long time. We now reach the final series of the season. The defending champions are back, I’m speaking of the Pittsburgh Penguins. They take on the red hot Nashville Predators, who was the last team to enter the postseason. I think the Predators have had one of the most impressive postseason runs in sports in years. Blowing away the competition after facing the Blackhawks, Blues, and the Anaheim Ducks. Also it is great to see the city of Nashville embracing this outstanding hockey team. Now the Predators have a golden opportunity to win a Stanley Cup for there team and there city. However the mighty Pittsburgh Penguins will have something to say about that. The Penguins made a bold move in changing goaltenders going with Matt Murray instead of Marc Andre Fleury lately when they fell behind the Ottawa Senators early in the series. So it paid off for the Penguins who themselves have had a fantastic postseason run of there own. So here is my pick: Nashville in 7 games. This should be a great Stanley Cup final and I can’t wait to start watching.

2017 NBA Playoffs Conference Semifinals Picks

2017 NBA Playoffs Conference Semifinals Picks

Even though the second round will start soon, not all 2nd round matchups have been set yet. I wish the NBA would change there playoff scheduling in sort of have all series finished before the next round starts. I love the NBA playoffs but they need to consider changing it’s format once and for all. Now the lone series that is not finished is Utah Jazz Los Angeles Clippers, and they still have a Game 7 This coming Sunday. I think who ever wins that game has to deal with a well rested Golden State Warriors. Some of the 1st round series were at times great. Here is my Round 2 picks:

Eastern Conference

Boston over Washington (6 games)

Cleveland over Toronto (6 games)

Western Conference

San Antonio over Houston (7 games)

Golden State over Utah or Los Angeles (7 games)

 

There you have it, so make sure you keep up on my picks throughout the postseason. I have to run as I will be traveling back home from New York. So I won’t be watching until I get back. I will talk to you soon.

 

2017 Round 2 Stanley Cup Playoffs Picks

2017 Round 2 Stanley Cup Playoffs Picks

Now time to get this round started even though one of the favorites is not around. I’m talking about the Chicago BlackHawks getting swept unexpectedly by the Nashville Predators in 4 straight. How about the Edmonton Oilers handling the Sharks in unique fashion. Finally how about the Washington Capitals taking down the Leafs although the Capitals almost blew it on a couple of games. Now here is my Round 2 picks:

Eastern Conference

NY Rangers over Ottawa (6 games)

Pittsburgh over Washington (7 games)

Western Conference

Edmonton over Anaheim (7 games)

Nashville over St. Louis (7 games)

 

There you have it and enjoy this round’s games
