Dirty Wudders Degenerate Wagering is a feature of this blog where the three contributors embarrass themselves picking the college and pro games of the week. Here are our picks for Sunday's games.
Tampa Bay (1-9) at Atlanta (5-5) Line: Atl (-12) O/U: 46
Atlanta has lost 4 of 5 games but they have a chance to make a late season run at a playiff spot. Tampa is 0-4 on the road and the Falcons are 4-0 at home.
Pick: Falcons by 3 touchdowns.
Indianapolis (10-0) at Houston (5-5) Line: Ind (-3) O/U: 47.5
Popular upset pick this week figuring the explosive Texans offense can exploit the banged up Colts secondary. I see the Colts outscoring the Texans in this one though.
Pick: Colts and the over
Seattle (3-7) @ St.Louis (1-9) Line: Sea -4 O/U: 42.5
Not the most exciting matchup on the schedule, that's for sure, but I see Steven Jackson having a field day against a weak Seattle team. Marc Bulger isn't playing -big whoop - I barely even noticed he's played at all this season, so his absence shouldn't be too much of a factor.
Pick: STL getting 4.
Jacksonville (6-4) @ San Francisco (4-6) Line SF -3.5 O/U: 41.5
The Niners have lost 5 of their last 6, and the Jags are working on a three-game winning streak. I expect Maurice Jones-Drew and Mike Sims-Walker to exploit the Niners D all day, and unless San Fran can come up with an answer then I don't see them pulling this one out.
Pick: Jags getting points.
