NFL Week 11 Picks

We’re coming off another 4-1 week here at MeathouseBets, although our best bet was our only loss last week.  There are so many great investment opportunities this week that I had trouble narrowing my picks down to five.  But here we go.   Chicago Bears +3 vs. the Detroit Lions Tampa Bay Buccaneers Pick ’em at …

NFL Week 10 Picks

Another time crunch here at MeathouseBets this week, but here are my top plays for the week.  This a tough week, as most of the lines seem to be in line with my own power rankings.  My top pick is the Dallas Cowboys getting 3.5 points on the road against the Atlanta Falcons.   Indianapolis …

NFL Week 9 Picks

We’re in a time crunch this week, so I don’t have much analysis to offer you.  But we’re coming off another 4-1 week, so we’re on a roll here at MeathouseBets.  We’re focused on the Breeders’ Cup this week, but here are some football picks to tide you over: Los Angeles Rams -4 at the …

NFL Week 8 Picks

As we near the halfway point of the NFL season, some things are becoming clear to bettors everywhere.
