Swinger's Record (18-17-1, -8.6 units) *Each wager is graded from 1 to 5 units*
Ah, if only I added a little tiny hook to the San Diego line I would have been crowing about my three game sweep last week. But alas, it was not to be as the Bolts pushed as four point pups in KC. And for all of you who are gonna bitch that there were no 4's out there and all you got was 3 ½ , well too bad ya bastards. There were plenty of 4's to be had at the time I wrote the article and if you're too damn cheap to buy it up then I've got no sympathy for you...just trying to get ahead of the haters dontcha know.
In our other games we had the Rams for three units as they destroyed the Bears and then we rounded it out with a nice play on the Cardinals as they spanked the Colts for two units. All in all, not a bad day, we didn't get out of the red but we're making our way towards respectability. Let's try to move ahead on the season with my Week 13 NFL picks!
The Bears simply cannot stop the run. They are dead last, allowing over 145 rushing yards per game and now have to face Adrian Peterson. Are you kidding me? Peterson will see more holes than a gynecologist at a free clinic. I realize everyone still believes the Bears are good because they should be good but they're not. Cutler is out and though McCown has done an admirable job in his absence, it's going to be tough sledding because Minnesota will be chewing up clock while Peterson runs wild.

Total - Cardinals vs. Eagles
Look, I know totals have been about as kind to me as acne on a teenager but let's not avoid them just because - don't finish this sentence by saying - I suck at them. Ingrates.
Okay here's the deal boys and girls. The Eagles looked sharp recently but they've played a bunch of nobodies while Arizona has a sterling defense but their offense won't strike fear into the hearts of anyone, except of course the Colts last week who didn't have a clue. That's not likely to happen again as Philly's defensive front will get to Carson Palmer because his offensive line, quite frankly, is not all that great but playing effectively despite their lack of sheer talent.
The Redbirds will keep Nick Foles in check and Palmer will not be launching early and often. This total is awful high my friends and I want to take advantage of it.

Let's make this simple shall we? The Redskins are coming off a short week after getting pasted by the Niners. Secondly this Washington secondary will be candy for a guy like Eli Manning who is surgical when playing against poor defenses (it's the good ones that can make him look like a piker). Offensively, RG3 and his crew are in shambles. This is a nice opportunity for Big Blue to pad their record by doing what they do best - beat up on bad teams.

The Woodman's Corner (7-5, +0.5 units) - Guest Handicapper
The Woodman didn't need no lousy three points last week as he once again pinned his rent on the underdog and that little puppy bit the book when the Cowboys not only covered the number in NFL odds but won the game outright over their archrivals the New York Giants.
This week he has gazed into his crystal ball and lo and behold, another underdog! That's right he's advising a play on the Fish to ground the Jets in New York. Woodman says play Miami +2 at Bet365.com.
