POORE'S PICKS: Week Nine

Jim Poore is back with his Weekly picks column against the spread. See how he's doing and drop him a note to let him know if you agree/disagree with his picks.

  There is a lot going on this week, from people bailing out from Hurricane Sandy to Halloween arriving. I love this time of year, because of the weather and the fact that football is in full swing. My best wishes to all recovering from the hurricane. I won't waste any more time so let's get right to the picks.
 
As always, home team in CAPS.
 
SAN DIEGO  7  Kansas City
I don't think anybody is going to be watching this game. But I still have to make a pick. The Chiefs have been a disaster, and the Chargers haven't been much better. I'll take San Diego at home.
Chargers  27-14
 
Detroit  3 1/2   JACKSONVILLE
Perhaps last week's come from behind win might give the Lions a lift. The Jaguars are game, but they are still battling for the number one pick. I'll take the Lions. May be they are starting to become the team many thought they would be.
 Lions  26-13
 
Chicago  3 1/2  TENNESSEE
It is hard to go against the Bears right now, as they are one of the hottest teams in the league. I don't think Tennessee will provide much of a challenge. They have been disappointing after many thought they were playoff contenders. I'll take the Bears to keep right on rolling.
 Bears  23-16
 
Miami  2 1/2  INDIANAPOLIS
Look out for the Dolphins, who are right in the playoff chase in the AFC. So are the Colts, but either team making the playoffs is a long shot. Still, they will be spoilers. The Dolphins especially will be total pests the rest of the way. I'll pick them to win here too. I don't think anybody thought the Dolphins were going to be 5-3.
 Dolphins  20-17
 
SEATTLE  4 1/2  Minnesota
Both teams have cooled off, especially the Vikings. Neither team is anything special, but like the teams above they will be pests as the year goes on. I think the Seahawks should be able to take care of business at home. But this is the NFL. Who knows.
 Seahawks  24-19
 
Baltimore  3 1/2  CLEVELAND
The Ravens were off last week, and they really needed the bye. They are decimated by injuries. The Browns won last week, but their mini one game streak will end. The Ravens are hurting but they should be able to put away the Browns.
 Ravens  20-10
 
OAKLAND  2  Tampa Bay
Perhaps the Bucs have turned the corner a bit, but it is likely too little too late. The Raiders never had a corner to turn. Still, I haven't seen either team play two good games in a row. Something has to give. I'll take the Bucs on the road.
 Buccaneers  22-20
 
Denver  3 1/2  CINCINNATI

The Broncos are starting to look really good, and their division is terrible. The Bengals are very much in the running for the post season, and the entire conference is up for grabs. This is a pretty big game, but right now I think the Broncos are playing better.
 Broncos 28-21
 
ATLANTA  4  Dallas
It is hard to go against the Falcons right now, and it is pretty easy to go against the Cowboys. There, the pick is made.
Falcons 27-21
 
HOUSTON  10  Buffalo
Both teams are coming off the bye week, and the Texans are arguably the best team in the NFL. I don't see the Bills putting up much of a fight here, especially in Houston.
Texans 31-14
 
GREEN BAY  10 1/2  Arizona
These are two teams going in total opposite directions. The Cardinals have absolutely hit the skids, while the Packers have been hot lately. I don't see the Cardinals slowing them down at all. Their defense must be getting tired.
Packers  29-14
 
NEW ORLEANS  3 1/2  Philadelphia
I think the biggest question in this game is how long before Michael Vick gets benched. I don't think we will be waiting much longer. I'll take the Saints at home, though neither team is going anywhere.
Saints 26-20
 
Game of the Week

NEW YORK GIANTS  3  Pittsburgh
Some might argue that the Giants are the best team in the NFL, and I wouldn't argue. The Steelers aren't the Steelers of old but they can still win the AFC North. Even though this isn't a conference game it is still very important. The Giants have been playing very well lately. I expect the trend to continue.
Giants  21-17
 
Stinker of the Week

WASHINGTON  3 1/2  Carolina

This is only the Stinker because of the Thursday night matchup. A pretty good consolation though.
Redskins  24-20
 
Record For Week Eight: 6-8 ( 9-5 without the spread )
Record Through Week Eight: 42-60-3 ( 55-50 without the spread )
Game of Week Record: 4-3
Stinker of Week Record: 2-5
