Locks of the Week

[Editor’s Note: This year, we’re making the Locks of the Week a little more interesting as we have a side bet amongst the four experts. The person with the most money at the end of the year in Locks betting takes home all the money. Disclaimer: The amounts discussed are for illustrative and entertainment purposes only. Gambling may be illegal in your locale.]

Vegas Vinny: $110 to win $100 on Buccaneers (-4). (Balance= $1005)

BostonMac: I’m going back on the Cardinals bandwagon. After the debacles of the last two weeks (tie vs. Bengals, drubbing at the hands of the Ravens), the Eagles are in no position to be giving points to anyone, least of all an NFC playoff team who played the Giants tough last week, eventually falling to a superior team with a stronger rushing attack. That isn’t the case this week, with the Eagles circus and the McNabb benching sideshow providing enough of a distraction to counteract the wacky travel schedule and start time for the week. The Cardinals are a legit playoff team and now is when they are going to start tuning up by beating up on bad teams like the Eagles who might legitimately fuck the kennel over the rest of the season. After hitting my $200 lock last week, I’ll scale this one back and put $55 on ARIZONA (+3) over Philadelphia. (Balance = $1290)

Trevor F: I love the Titans giving 11 to the Lions on Thanksgiving. In my opinion,
Jeff Fisher is going to have them juiced up after what happened against
the Jets. I see Tennessee taking out a lot of frustration against a Lions
team that I cannot envision scoring more than 10 points in this game.
Titans win and they win big. I have it 35-10. LenDale White and Chris
Johnson will each get over a 100 yards rushing and a score. All will be
happy in Nashville on Thanksgiving. (Balance = $1345)

RJ: (Balance = $100)
