Our listeners have made it known that one segment is the only important 10 minutes in our show on Fridays, and it has nothing to do with our nonsense.
Pregame.com’s RJ Bell has had a pretty good run so far this NFL season, going (2-1) last week, and (9-3) , or 75% overall with his picks. Impressive, right? Let’s see if it continues in Week 5…
Underdog Special: St. Louis Rams +9.5 vs. Green Bay Packers
The Rams look much improved this year, and Green Bay still looks like one of the best teams in the league. To beat the Packers, the Rams need to be able to run, and pressure Aaron Rogers without blitzing; two things that St. Louis is capable of.
Best Bet: Oakland Raiders +4.5 vs. Denver Broncos
Choosing the Raiders always seems like a bad idea, and the Broncos are a “football sexy” team, as RJ called them. However, Peyton Manning is beginning to show his age. Raiders Head Coach Jack Del Rio was also the Broncos’ interim coach last year, so he understands that team very well.
Big Game (MNF): San Diego Chargers -3 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers have had a frustrating season so far. Big Ben is out, Michael Vick is in, who is no longer considered elite. The Steelers are also poor on the road and outside their time zone against the spread. San Diego hasn’t been playing that well, but their offensive line is getting healthier, which should be a factor.
