NFL Underdog Pick for Week 5|
October 4th 2013 - Special K
New England Patriots (+1.5) at
I still feel robbed that last week's underdog pick ended up as a push. C'mon,
Matt Schaub - what were you thinking throwing that pass to Sherman? Last
week, I also underestimated Brady and Belichick against the Falcons. Yup,
"Mattie Ice never loses at home". Well, you know what, since 2010, Brady
and Belichick are 6-0 ATS as an underdog. Yes, I have learned from my mistakes
and I am rolling with the Patriots this week.
Honestly, I don't understand how the Bengals are even favored in this football
game. If their secondary was healthy, I could see it. However, Leon Hall, their
best db is doubtful again. Also, check on the status of Kirkpatrick and Nelson
since they were out last week. While the Bengals front 7 is one of the best in
football, the Patriots o-line is one of the best as well. Brady should have
enough time to pick apart the Bengals make shift secondary. On the other side,
the Patriots defense ranks 6th in points allowed and 4th in red zone efficiency.
You know Belichick will scheme to take AJ Green out of the game. Dalton will get
frustrated and the Patriots will win the turnover battle like they normally do.
Take the Patriots
