Welcome back to Book It! Friday, where Fish Hack is willing to part with a few NFL winners for this weekend so you steelhead bums don’t have to clear the garage of empties to get a little beer money.
Hack was too far away from the Fish Wrap last week for even the Pinkertons to find him, let alone barf out a few picks for you degenerates who look to Fish Hack for Sunday financial help.
Got plenty to offer this weekend, though, and the key game of this week actually played out last week.
When Big Ben hung 51 points on Indy, it made for two good bets for this week.
First, the Ravens travel to Pittsburgh this week for a rivalry game with an inflated over of 47.5 points thanks largely to bettors falling for last week’s Steelers’ anomaly. When these teams met earlier in the season, the total was 32. Take the under and watch the field goals fly.
And who exactly was it to give Big Ben more scores than a Mustang Ranch shift last week? That would be Indy, which has had trouble stopping anyone and everyone this season.
Luck has the skill to score, but look for Eli Manning to find the cure that Big Ben got in Week 8. The 50.5 points as the over-under should fall easily, given these teams’ track records. Take the over.
And then there’s Cincy at home laying 11 points to a piss-poor Jacksonville team that can’t travel across the street to win a game. Cincy is undefeated in more than two years at home, and with AJ Green returning the TDs should roll for the Bengals.
Lay the points.
