Once again here we are at BOOK IT! Friday, where Fish Hack offers you steelhead bums some NFL picks so you don’t have to make an empties haul down to the recycling center for next week’s beer money.
Went a pedestrian 2-2 last week to stand at 6-8 for the season, but Hack’s got a suite of games that should put us over .500 by Sunday afternoon.
First, there’s Tampa Bay laying 3 to Jacksonville. Now, Hack’s not a big fan at betting good money on bad games, but gotta grab a seat off the Winston bandwagon here. Bortles ain’t much better, but he won’t throw a pick-six like Winston seems to enjoy doing. With the pick-six, the score just might be 9-3. So take the points with Jax and go ahead and take the under 43 total.
The NY Giants are laying 6 1/2 points at San Francisco. The Giants are better than their record, and the Niners are worse. There’s one quarterback in this game and he’ll more than cover the touchdown. Take the Giants.
Then travel down The 5 to see San Diego laying 3 points to Pittsburgh. That point spread means Vegas thinks they’re even teams with the 3 points going to the home squad. Vick will come back down to earth and realize he’s an aging has-been, so look for him to play that way. Lay the 3 poiints and that 45.5-point under looks pretty inviting as well.
