Week 9: Chicago Bears (-3)

Truth be told, I’m not crazy about any of the games this week. However, something keeps telling me Chicago. Thomas Jones appears to be healthy and close to full strength for this week’s game. If that’s the case, it will enable the Bears to have a balanced attack. Da Bears have only won one game so far on the road, but I think the “every game’s a road game” schedule for New Orleans is starting to take its toll on the Saints. They’ve lost four in a row, they’re up against one of the toughest defenses in the league, and they’re looking ahead to a bye week. Translation: The Bears are poised to go in to Baton Rouge and steal this one.

Hollywood Smooth is 4-2 so far this season.

Teaser of the week

The requests keep pouring in — and I’m not one that likes to disappoint, so back by popular demand — I’m giving y’all a free teaser this week. Jacksonville and New England. The Jags are a 13.5 point favorite against the Texans and while Jacksonville has a great chance to cover the original line, it’s hard not to take them minus the 7.5. Houston got the monkey off their back last week and should return to their losing ways. As for New England, how do you pass up on a Monday night home dog? Peyton still hasn’t beaten this club on a big stage and even if the Colts time has come to finally win one at Gillette, it sure as hell won’t be by the 9.5 you can tease the line to. Good luck this week y’all!
