At the end of each week, we pick the winners to the weekend’s most patriotic matchups. We call it Weekend Picks. Home teams are listed in ALL CAPS.
Tonight: Heat -5.5 over KNICKS. The James Gang has won ten straight and has shown no signs of slowing down. But the Knicks have been playing well (8-2 in their last ten); it’s too bad that they’ll lose on national TV tonight.
Saturday: BYU vs. UTEP, under 50. Bowl season begins tomorrow with the New Mexico Bowl. I understand that UTEP is looking to grant amnesty to anyone that enters the stadium illegally.
Troy -3 over Ohio. The New Orleans Bowl sounds like a good time. One could make a little extra Christmas money by betting against the MAC this bowl season.
DAN LEVY, over 500. Dan’s 500th show celebration will be in Philadelphia. If you were one of the lucky few that received tickets, then I’ll see you there.
Sunday: COWBOYS -7 over Redskins. I’m starting Jon Kitna in my lone fantasy playoff appearance, which looks a lot better now that Mike Shanahan has decided to start the Sex Cannon.
PATRIOTS minus whatever over Packers. The lines aren’t out yet, but who cares. Aaron Rodgers isn’t playing and Tom Brady is. And even though no snow is expected, the Pats will still leave the Packers out in the cold. See what I did there?
