Taking all the dogs in the divisional round would have made money last weekend. That’s because the underdog Packers and the Steelers both won. And that’s who I think are going to win this Monday morning. Why you ask? I’m just tired of the Patriots and Aaron Rodgers is on fire. Being a Bengals fan, I’m tired of the Steelers as well, but I really want to see someone other than the Patriots in the Super Bowl.
Well folks, we’ve finally reached the playoffs. Sports360 had a Christmas break and we are back just in time for the division playoff round. Wild Card weekend was not that wild as all the favourites won. The unlucky Oakland Raiders got knocked out by the Texans 27-14 and you have to feel badly for them. They lost their MVP candidate QB Derek Carr in the second last week and then lost their backup QB in the last week. It’s hard to win in the NFL going with a 3rd string quarterback unless you are the Patriots, of course. Other games had the red hot Packers steam rolling the Giants in the second half for a 38-13 win. The Steelers overcame their early season loss to the Dolphins with a little revenge in a solid 30-12 victory. The key story in that game was Big Ben Roethlisberger injuring his ankle on the last play of the game. He entered the post-game interview wearing a space boot insisting he was playing next week. (He will play, but how mobile he is remains to be seen) The Seahawks, who always surge this time of year, were too much at home for the Detroit Lions, finishing them off 26-6.
Welcome to Tuesday Morning Football, Sports360 fans! What's that old saying? 'Fool me once...'. I've picked the Packers too many times this year. They are a shell of last year's team and Rodgers has proven he can't do it all on his own. The Eagles should put in a good show at home. They are paying 1.47 on Luxbet and 1.94 -4.5 points.Take the points for better value.
Week 12 has already produced some great games. But, the Kansas City Chiefs at the Denver Broncos could be best of the week. Two top teams in the AFC will try to keep pace with their division leading rival, the Oakland Raiders, and emerge as wild card favourites. I like both top rated defences which should produce a tight game but I give the edge to veteran quarterback Alex Smith over rookie Trevor Siemion. I also like the value in the Chiefs at 2.65 head to head on Luxbet. Game starts at 11:30 am Brisbane time on 7Mate. Catch me at 8:30 am Saturday mornings on 99.7 Bridge FM during the Saturday Morning Sports Cafe.
Welcome to Week 11 Sports360 fans!
What did Meatloaf say? Two out of three ain’t bad! The Falcons let me down, but the Cowboys and the Seahawks came through and both paid over $2.
Week 10 started Friday with the Ravens beating the Browns 28-7. What a surprise!?!? I bet that the Browns won’t win a game this season!
Welcome to Week 9, Sports360 fans and here’s to an early start Monday morning!
Welcome to Week 8, Sports360 fans! The halfway point of the season and it’s value play weekend.
Welcome to Week 7 Monday Night Football, Sports360 Fans. It’s the Houston Texans heading to Denver to take on The Broncos.
