TheBostonInsider made you money in the regular season. TheBostonInsider made you money on Wild Card Weekend. TheBostonInsider will make you money this weekend.
Unlike the New England Patriots, TheBostonInsider is healthy and focused on this weekend's games. My feet, ankles, knees, and back are at 100% - or at least as close to 100% as they can be for a 34-year-old who counts eating McDonald's just once a week as a "step in the right direction" - and I haven't touched any drugs, synthetic or not, since college.
Yeah, that's right, I'm calling out the Patriots. I know injuries are out of their control but this mess with Chandler Jones has me worried that their focus has been distracted from preparing for the Chiefs. Bill Belichick is better than any coach in this era at getting his team to focus on what they need to do in order to win, especially in the playoffs, but I'm worried that the injuries that have decimated them for the last several weeks combined with Jones' foolishness could provide the perfect storm for Andy Reid's team, winners of 11 straight games and armed with a defense that could attack Tom Brady, to go in to Foxboro and upset the Patriots.
Anyways, here are the picks. All picks are against the spread and home team is in CAPS.
Chiefs (+5.5) over PATRIOTS
CARDINALS (-7) over Packers
PANTHERS (-1) over Seahawks
BRONCOS (-7) over Steelers
Last Week: 3-1
Regular Season: 132-118-5
