Football Picks

Another week gone by and another week waiting for Sparty to cover.  I'm sticking with them for now because we all know that as soon as I go against them that they will roll to a big cover.

While I'm sticking with Michigan State despite them being 0-5 against the spread, I'll be going against the Patriots this week despite them being 3-0-1 against the spread.  There's too much love for the Patriots this week and when 90% of the country is going one way, I'll go the other.

Another reason that I like the Colts this week is that after getting crushed by New England the last four times they have played - including the 45-7 defeat in last year's AFC Championship Game - I believe they'll be motivated to not get blown out, at home, by Belichick's team once again.  The Colts will keep it close for four quarters but in the end the Patriots will win the game.  I'll go with a 38-31 win for Belichick but a cover for the Colts.

As always, all picks are against the spread and the home team is in CAPS.
