Titans +7 over STEELERS

My Thursday night battle continues.  Last week I settled with A PUSH…but I haven’t had a win ATS on TNF in 6 weeks.  This week I thought it was too many points…..and I was wrong as AB BALLED OUT

Helmet Catch Part Two 😱🔥

TEXANS +2 over Cards

Did you know that Blaine Gabbert was still in the league and that he might start this week for the Cards?  We could be lucky enough to get a Blaine Gabbert vs Tom Savage QB match up.  Not that Drew Stanton is much better.  But explain to me again why Colin Kaepernick can’t get a look?  And before you hate on Kaep, just a heads up of some of the other matchups this Sunday

PACKERS +2 over Ravens

I’m don’t want to buy into Brett Hundley.  I really don’t.  But he does seem to be improving.  Over his last two games his completing almost 70% of his passes and has a 95.8 passer rating.  Meanwhile the Ravens are 3-8-1 against the spread in their last 12 road games.  But the real reason, I’m going against The Elite Joe Flacco is because he has more completions for negative yards (12), than completions of at least 20 yards (10).  But hey at least Baltimore gave us The Wire right? Side note, are you buying this Hot Take on season 2 because I am….

Bills +4 over CHARGERS

The Chargers have had 21 one score games over the last 2 years.  That’s an amazing stat.  Sadly they’ve lost most of those games including this past Sunday when Tre Boston decided to celebrate after getting what he believed to be the game clinching INT.  So instead of advancing the ball and killing the clock….he did this instead

Final score Jags 20 – Chargers 17

BRONCOS -2.5 over Bengals

Seriously, so many of these games are crap.  I have zero interest of watching this game and I was tempted to take the points before a realized that Andy Dalton was still leading the Bengals offence despite being 1-3 in their last 4 games while averaging 227.8 yards of total offense.  Plus after being embarrassed on national tv, I expect a bounce back from the Denver defense…..

Bucs +3 over DOLPHINS

The Dolphins got SMASHED by Cam and Panthers.  Ryan Fitzpatrick is no Cam (not even close), but the point is Miami made the Panthers offense look really REALLY good….like putting up 45 points good.  I’m not gonna say they quit but they’ve lost their last 3 games by an average of 22 points.   Speaking of taking L’s….

BEARS +3 over Lions

I wanted to say to Matthew Stafford, if you are who they say you are, you can’t lose to Mitchell Trubisky and claim to be serious about making the playoffs.  But in reality it might not even come down to that because the Bears running game is LEGIT.  Meanwhile the Lions D is allowing 136.8 rushing yards per game over the last 4 weeks.  So maybe just maybe it gives Trubisky some more room to improve on his 99.7 passer rating over his last 2 home games.  #HomeDogs

Chiefs -10 over GIANTS

I will bet against the Giants every single game for the rest of the season.   #TapeDontLie

 Jags -7.5 over BROWNS

I thought about taking the Browns but I just can’t do it.  Not against the Jaguars defense and not when the Browns are 3-11 against the spread over their last 14 home games.  In fact the only way the Browns cover or win is if Bortles gives them the game.  Which isn’t completely off the table if you watched last week’s game against the Chargers.  Maybe they should get TNT’s “Underdog” to play QB….his aim seems to be on point

Rams +2.5 over VIKINGS

The Vikings are legit and they’re at home.  But at the end of the day it’s Case Keenum.  He’s been great filling in so far, but it can’t last forever.  Meanwhile the Rams offense is clicking, but this might just be their biggest test to date.    Hopefully we get some more of these audibles from Jared Goff

Washington +7.5 over SAINTS

The Saints scored 47 points and Drew Brees didn’t have a passing TD.  How does this make any sense?  I have no idea, but I think more than a TD is too many points.

RAIDERS +6.5 over Patriots (in Mexico City)

I’m on the Raiders because the Pats are good, but not that good.  Too many points and I like the Raiders to cover in a shootout.  Possibly sliding into a #BackDoorCover like

Eagles -3 over COWBOYS

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m riding with the Eagles until proved otherwise.  The Cowboys line was an absolute joke last week.  Dallas also comes in ranked 27th in 3rd down defense, while Philly has the 3rd best 3rd down offence in the NFL.  Also, the favourite is 7-3-1 and 5-1-1 ATS over the last 5 Sunday night games #Stats.  Plus….Jerry Jones in ON ONE lately

👀👀 So I guess Jerry Jones and Roger Goodell won't be spending Thanksgiving together then huh…. #damn

I’m not buying Matt Ryan.

The NFL where craziness happens….doesn’t quite have the same ring to it as the old NBA moniker.  But if you’re like me always looking for money line parlays here’s an interesting note.  The last 3 weeks only one 7 plus point favourite has lost out right and that was the Seahawks last week.  As always do with that information what you will.  This week, the Chiefs, Raiders, Eagles and Ravens are on the bye….but for everyone else….Lets keep the good times rolling.  Past the midway point of the season I’m 72-56-4.  Lets gooooooo


CARDS +6 over Seahawks

A reminder of my Thursday night football picks are available each and every week on my Instagram page (https://www.instagram.com/sheldonalexander/) although it comes with the buyer beware of being 0 for the last 5 weeks on TNF and so I decided to fade myself this week.  You see normally, I would have taken the Seahawks at home…but instead in an attempt to change my misfortunes I took the opposite and rolled with the Cards.  Yes, the same Cards that managed the late TD setting up the backdoor cover only to miss the extra point leaving me WITH A PUSH!!!!! Of course right….LOL.

TITANS -4.5 over Bengals

The Bengals are done.  Think about it, AJ Green has seen it all and has remained cool until last week when he finally had enough of Andy Dalton (I think LOL) and tried to take it out on Jalen Ramsey….

Chargers +4 over JAGS

Speaking of Mr. Ramsey…

But much like AJ Green’s frustrations boiling over with Andy Dalton, how many times in a row can I ride Blake Bortles and the Jags before it bites me in the ass right?  So with that in mind I’m trying to get out ahead of it and I’m taking the Chargers 4th ranked pass rush and 26 sacks against Bortles who has the 2nd worst passer rating in the NFL vs the blitz at 60.3.

Browns +10.5 over LIONS

I don’t like it, but I’m going to my classic “taking the points” on a double digit spread rule.  I don’t like this at all, but the Lions are on a short week…but again….it’s the Browns we’re talking about here.

Packers +5.5 over BEARS

The Bears favoured by more than a FG is TOO HIGH.  Also, I refuse to watch a second of this game.  Former Chicago star Jimmy Butler has moved on to Minnesota and because of that he decided to do an interview with ESPN while of all things….canoeing

Vikings – 1 over WASHINGTON

Speaking of Miiny.  I love teams coming off a bye week and Minnesota was already riding a 4 game win streak heading into the break.  How have they done it you ask?  Well first off they run the ball to the tune of 132 rushing yards per game, during their run AND THEY PLAY DEFENCE!!! Meanwhile, Mr. Cousins hasn’t led his team to over 300 yards of total offence in the last two weeks and so I don’t think they’ll be able to do it this week against a Vikings team that ranks 4th in total defence and 3rd overall in scoring D.  Plus, look at what ya mans is doing to his teammates….THIS IS A SET UP TING!!!

BILLS +3 over Saints

Home dog alert!!!! So if you follow us here on the #OnBlast NFL Fix, then you know that last week I pointed out the Bills upcoming schedule (@ LAR, @KC, vs NE) and so this is essentially a must win game for #BillsMafia if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive.  I’m not thrown off by their weird performance on Thursday night (cause really, how crazy have the TNF games been), so I’m banking on the Bills 8th ranked rush defense to slow down the travelling Saints.

BUCS +2.5 over Jets

I’m taking the home dog here because I feel as if the Jets have become over valued and the Bucs have become over scrutinized.   I’m not saying Tampa is good, but I’m not about to take the Jets who for some reason are favoured on the road despite 7 turnovers in the 4 road games.  Add that to allowing nearly 400 yards to those same opponents?!?!  I’ll gladly take Ryan Fitz-MAGIC against his former team, especially when he’s completing 63% of his passes and has a passer rating of 95.7 this season…..AND he doesn’t do this while trying to motivate his team.

COLTS +10 over Steelers

This is the week I’m sticking to my double digit spread rule.  Check my twitter feed on Sunday for video of me smashing my phone after rooting for Jacoby Brissett and whatever chump the Browns start, in their search of a late game back door cover.

RAMS -11 over Texans

Yeah so about that whole double digit spread thing.  HAVE YOU SEEN THE RAMS OFFENSE?!?!? Also, remember when the Texans started the season with Macho Man Tom Savage as their starting QB over Deshaun Watson?  Yeah…..well like your boy Brian McKnight once famously sang Houston is “starting back at one.”  But of course we couldn’t of had Watson healthy against the Rams for this game, because it’s the NFL and we’re not allowed nice things anymore.

Cowboys +3 over FALCONS

How “Bout Dem Cowboys…Zeke or no Zeke the Cowboys will be able to run the ball and the Falcons are 1-4 when they allow their opponents to rush for over 100 yards.  Now with Zeke, the Boys have rushed for an average of 183 yards per game…I don’t the Morris/Smith/McFadden trio will fall off more than 80 yards behind that O-Line.  Plus the Falcons appear to be joke on offense without my guy Shanny…..just look at what happened to Julio

But back to the Cowboys for a second, does anyone know the story behind the Tony Romo vs Deion Sanders BEEF?!?!?  I have no idea, but I like it

NINERS +2.5 over Giants

Kyle Shanahan…Matt Ryan has made me a believer.  So whatever you decide to do with Jimmy G, I’m in.  Also the Giants are no longer believers in their coach.  Do you wanna know how I know?  Watch this performance by their defence on 3rd and 33

Patriots -7.5 over BRONCOS

I really want to take the Broncos here, but the QB situation in Denver is SO BAD.  Plus, the Pats appear to be finding their yearly groove where we as football fans don’t even wonder anymore about the “how”, we just sit back and accept Brady and Belichick for the GANGSTERS that they are.

PANTHERS -9 over Dolphins

How do the Dolphins have so many night games?!?!? Out of protest alone I’m taking the Panthers.  Well sort of, I also think Miami is done this year because all of the South Beach magic is being used up by “The U”.  Have you seen
