Veteran handicapper Swinging Johnson is determined to move into the black this week with three NFL picks to crush your bookmaker on Sunday. Let’s see what he’s got!

Swinger’s 2017 NFL Record (2-2-0, -0.20 Units)

Nobody gets rich with a .500 record and we are certainly no exception. Last week the Titans covered easily over the Jaguars but the Packers could not keep pace with the Falcons. We are going to shift gears this year and move back to a “ranked unit system” which will be predicated on 1 to 5 units. We will not indulge a phony-baloney 50,000 unit Play of the Year which is a contrivance of paid handicappers (aka scamdicappers) to suddenly attempt to push their units through the roof when they find themselves down.

If you are a $100 bettor, it is reasonable to suggest that you could swallow hard and put $500 on a play every now and again on a five-unit best bet. What’s not reasonable is that that same bettor could suddenly bet $5 million on a game ($100 x 50,000) based on his tout of choice yelling from the highest mountain that his 50,000 platinum play is a sure-fire guarantee. It’s absurd but it’s the lifeblood of the charlatans who poison the industry and give sports gambling the stigma that has been so difficult to shake. I will step down from my soapbox and get to the issue at hand – Week 3’s NFL picks!

 

Saints (+6) at Panthers

The Panthers are 2-0 this season but are getting a bit too much respect from the NFL odds makers in this one. Carolina has played two offensively challenged teams thus far in wins over the San Francisco 49’ers and Buffalo Bills (yes, the Niners are offensively challenged despite their impressive display on Thursday night in a 41-39 loss to the Rams). The issue with the Panthers is that they have little in the way of offense themselves and to spot a potentially explosive Saints’ team six-points is simply too much. Grab the points and back the boys from the Bayou.

Falcons at Lions (+3)

I’m waiting for the Falcons to fall yet they have produced solid wins over the Bears and Packers. I think the time is now for a sobering loss to an emerging force in the NFL. The Lions have averaged nearly 30 points per game in wins over the Cardinals and Giants, and now face the Falcons that are hardly considered a defensive threat. Matthew Stafford signed a long-term deal with Detroit recently and is living up to those lofty paychecks with stats that read six touchdowns, 414 yards passing, and a 71 percent completion rate with only one pick over two contests. Matt Ryan too has commanded the Falcons offense with aplomb striking for two TD’s, 572 yards passing and a 69 complete rate with no picks. But the difference is that the Lions have a defense and Ryan may be without the services of his right tackle Ryan Schraeder. Whether Schraeder goes or not, he will see more pressure than he’s experienced up to this point. Let’s back the Motor City Cats in this one.

Giants at Eagles (-6)

Say what you want about Eli Manning but it’s tough to be a quarterback in the NFL without protection up front. This glaring issue will rear its ugly head once again as the Eagles will have their collective ears pinned back on a search-and-destroy mission this week. The Giants will have issues on defense as well because Janoris Jenkins is questionable and middle linebacker B.J. Goodson has already been ruled out. I have no clue as to how the Giants will keep pace with their guests in this one, which should mean another blowout and one more year where Big Blue struggles early in the season. Fly with the Eagles on Sunday!

The Woodman’s Corner (1-1, -0.1 Unit)

The Woodman bounced back with the Buffalo Bills +7 ½ last week, in a 9-3 snoozefest with the Carolina Panthers. But as the Woodman always says, “We’re here to make money, not be entertained. If you want to see a show, go see Bob Hope.” Yes, the Woodman is a bit behind the times and thinks that his Sony Walkman is state-of-the-art but when it comes to betting football, the man lives in the black – in the dark too but that’s another story. This week he says back the Bungles at Lambeu in your NFL picks.
