Hot Soup Week 8 Picks


Kansas City (-7.5) vs Cleveland

The return of revolving QB door for Cleveland is back with Jason Campbell calling the shots this week.  KC is too good at home and should be able run away with this one.

Green Bay (-9.5) at Minnesota

Minnesota looked so bad last week and coming for a short week.  GB will defeat their division rival with ease.

New York Giants (+5.5) at Philadelphia

The Giants finally got their first win of the year.  Can a winning streak be in future?  Vick is not a 100% and will not take advantage of a bad Giants defense.  Close game coming hear I think.

New Orleans (-12.5) vs Buffalo

New Orleans coming off a bye and are at home.  I will take it.  This team can get in the end zone.

Seattle (-10.5) at St. Louis

The Rams are not good.  Sam Bradford is done for the year, not as if that would help this team.  Wilson and the boys roll on.


Pittsburgh (-3.5) at Oakland

Pittsburgh has gotten back to typical Steelers football the past two weeks.  The defense has improved each week and the Steelers have gotten back to a ground and pound type running game with the return of Le’Veon Bell.  Pittsburgh, at 2-4, is not completely out of it and will be playing a must win game against a weak Oakland team.

New Orleans (-12.5) vs. Buffalo

New Orleans has had two weeks to sit and think about their last minute loss to the Patriots.  Thad Lewis hasn’t experienced anything like the Superdome and will struggle to move the ball all afternoon.

Seattle (-10.5) at St. Louis

Kellen Clemens will be no match for the physical Seattle defense.  Russell hustle and bustle, muscle man Wilson has been near flawless the last two weeks.  This has blowout written all over it.

Atlanta (+2.5) at Arizona

Atlanta has been competitive in virtually every game this season and Harry Douglas has shown he’s a real weapon in the passing game.  The return of Steven Jackson will provide some much needed balance.  Carson Palmer has been beyond horrific.  Atlanta wins outright.

Minnesota (+9.5) vs. Green Bay

This is my favorite bet of the week.  NFL teams rarely get blown out two straight weeks.  Ponder is the best QB on the Vikings roster and will be able to at least sustain some drives.  The Packers injury problems have to catch up with them eventually, right?  Packers by a FG.


New Orleans (-12.5) vs. Buffalo

Washington (+12.5) at Denver

Dallas (+3.5) at Detroit

Seattle (-10.5) at St. Louis

Green Bay (-9.5) at Minnesota



Detroit (-3.5) vs Dallas

This is a game that both of these teams need to win.  It’s the type of game to escalate each team to a different echelon in the NFL.  The Cowboys won’t be able to stop Calvin Johnson, and without Demarco Murray, the ‘Boys are in for a long day.

Washington (+12.5) at Denver

The Redskins are starting to look like the team from last year.  I love the Redskins to keep this game much closer than people think.  I believe the Broncos will win, but only by 7-10.  Robert Griffin III will find a way to get a junk touchdown in garbage time.

New York Giants (+5.5) at Philadelphia

The Giants got their first win, even if it was an ugly one.  Vick is dealing with a hamstring injury and may not start this week.  The Eagles have a good offense, but continually shoot themselves in the foot with turnovers.  This Chip Kelly offense looks to be sputtering.  Take the points, Giants win outright.

New Orleans (-12.5) vs Buffalo

New Orleans is unstoppable at home.  Buffalo has no CJ Spiller or EJ Manuel.  Love the Saints to take down the Bills by two touchdowns.

St. Louis (+10.5) vs Seattle

These division games are always close between these two teams. The Rams won’t win, but should keep it close.  Take the 10.5 points and thank me later.
