Week 8 Prediction

Pats 31 Vikings 24

Pats will cover the 5 point spread but the Vikings will be able to put points on the board as both teams blow away the 44 point over/under.

Week 7 Prediction

Pats 28 Chargers 27

My instincts tell me to pick the home team when there are so many variables up in the air... Chargers haven't scored less than 38 at home this season (in 2 games). Antonio Gates (7 TDs) is questionable. How will the Pats do on the road? How will the Pats do travelling to the west coast? What do you make of San Diego's three punts blocked, two opponents kick returns, and one opponent punt return this season? But most of the questions other than the road woes are on the Chargers side so the Pats will cover the 2 ½ points. Take the over; special teams scoring is fast and likely allowing for a higher overall score than 47 points.

Week 6 Prediction

Pats 24 Ravens 20

Ravens haven't scored more than 17 on the road. Ravens haven't allowed an opponent to score more than 17. The Pats game will break both trends and cover the 2 ½ points the Ravens are giving them. Take the under; 45 points is too rich for this game.
