Nothing is more popular than the NFL, and no segment on the Kevin & Bean Show is more bigger than our weekly chat with Pregame.com’s RJ Bell.
Listeners love to make money, and hey, maybe last week RJ went (1-2) and is 56% overall, but he believes he’ll come positive in the long run. And the Patriots have gotta lose in the long run, right?
Underdog Special: Kansas City Chiefs +2 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
Pittsburgh will be led by 3rd string Quarterback Landry Jones. Prior to the 2nd half of last week’s Steelers game, Jones had never stepped foot onto the field during the regular season. He did play in preseason the last 3 years, and he was awful, so don’t be fooled by last week’s performance. Kansas City is also better than their record states.
Best Bet: Indianapolis Colts -4 vs. New Orleans Saints
Both teams are playing with Quarterbacks that are at less than 100%, so RJ believes Luck vs. Brees is a wash. The Colts tend to bounce back well after a loss in the previous week, going (17-3) against the spread in that situation
Big Game: New York Jets +9 vs. New England Patriots
New England is clearly the best in the league; they are the highest scoring, and Tom Brady is having a monster year. However, the Jets are much better than anyone expected, with the statistically the best Defense in the NFL.
