“No Andrew Luck, no problem”, said that the Indianapolis Colts. Jacoby Brissett did enough damage to produce gambling the Titans in your NFL picks this weekend a major bowl of distress. Tennessee ended up 17-13 until Brissett struck T.Y. Hilton for a small four-yard flare to put the Colts up 19-17 until the two-point conversion attempt failed. We all who set three together with the Titans were praying that as the pain would simply magnify when Tennessee was going to win this one 20-19 his Titans would march down the area and then stick on . There were still four minutes and change left in the game, and it might be also a one-point win could be helpful for the Titans.
Finally, the Titans lost — that is what we actually wanted if we couldn’t get the cover because we want the favorites we wager on to feel at least some of our angst — and most people backing Tennessee are left wondering whether Mariota is really the perfect man for the task.
No, this doesn’t qualify as a defeat per se but for each one of the squares who decided they went to play the part of a sharp and catch 18 1/2 to 19 points around the home dog, how would this feel? For once bet such as the guys, jump straight off the bandwagon, and you went to go against the grain. You couldn’t wait to smugly say,”I told you so” after the Pats won 24-10, however using Miami covering, and then regale your square brethren on the background of failure New England has endured over the years when they journey to Miami. A smile would creep across your face after you’ve silenced your wagering wisdom into your bar buddies by ordering a round of shots for all of the losers that are chalk-eating followed.
Well, that dream turned into a nightmare since the wrecking crew of TB12 put waste to the Fish and the squares ‘ are’ talkin’ smack as you sit there and accept it. You’ve got a shot to drown your distress.
Bears on the road against a lackluster Denver offense looked like a great bet, right? In the end, you are laying under a field goal and Chicago retains a 13-3 lead heading into the fourth quarter. Counting your money? The Bears should be able to find a touchdown with nearly the whole fourth quarter, however, Denver isn’t just an offensive juggernaut although the Broncos would draw closer, courtesy of a field goal off the foot of Brandon McManus.
Ah, not so quickly, since the only touchdown in the last stanza would come into Sanders via a seven-yard Flacco link followed with a prosperous conversion. It had been the conversion that iced it instead of an additional point linking the match, these mom bleepin’ Broncos went for the deuce and made the score 14-13, so a late Chicago field target wouldn’t be enough to get the pay. And worst of all, we’d shed by a hook!
The Bears, kicked out a field goal finally feeling a sense of urgency — there’s not ours — with 30 minutes left on the clock marched down the field, and also notched a 16-14 choice. Meanwhile, those who dared the NFL chances board to get a line underneath 3, secure in the knowledge that 2 1/2 had been a number, and one that would not hurt themwere left with tears in their eyes and lint in their pockets.
