Week 9: 7-6, Overall: 55-48-1, Locks: 5-1

Greetings! Beddict’s back in the hizzy, already 0-1 this week after Andy Dalton was brought to his knees as if he was Miley Cyrus, after spiking (NSFW… kinda) her own drink with multiple mollys. I apologize, for I feel wrong comparing Andy Dalton to someone with real talent. Is there anything grosser than Miley going full camel toe, sticking her demonic tongue out, and twerking that pasty pancake ass? Sure there is… Andy Dalton playing QB in the National Football League. That was one of the most embarrassingly pathetic performances I’ve witnessed from a QB in my many days upon this earth. Not since Curtis “Putrid” Painter started almost the entire season when the Colts were tanking (not talked about enough) to get Andrew Luck, have I been cursed with watching such peon like play. Seems like a great guy in real life though… moving on. Let’s get to this week’s picks, shall we? The quest for the perfect week continues.

 

Lock of the Week: New York GiantsSeattle (-9) – After betting against my hometown, Seattle Seahawks, in 3 consecutive weeks, now seems like the perfect moment to reverse course and go all in. The Giants looked like the worst team in football on MNF this past week and how were they rewarded? With a cross country flight on a short week, to face the Super Bowl Champion, Seattle Seahawks, who at home, are one of the best teams in the NFL. This is like taking Edward Furlong, giving him a half gallon of Jägermeister, then leaving him alone at the San Diego Zoo. You already know he’s gonna let all those MF-in animals loose. Just like you know the Hawks are going to beat the brakes off the Little Giants. If  the Hawks defense can contain “Icebox” and watch out for the “annexation of Puerto Rico” play, it should be a great day.

Miami (+3) @ Detroit – Let me be clear: I wouldn’t bet on this game even if I had the use of one of Christian Slater’s many, nearly maxed out credit cards. Buuuuut, if you’re going to put a knife to my D like Lorena Bobbit, I’m rollin’ with Miami. That defense is playing insanely well right now’ and you’d think the Elder Gods themselves were out in that secondary (Grimes is close to ascending). Calvin Johnson makes his triumphant return to the Lions lineup, complicating things that much further. Very interesting game.

Kansas City (-1.5) @ Buffalo – The odds of Sammy Watkins participating in this game are about as high as Keanu Reaves winning an Academy Award for his new blockbuster John Wick. Add that to the fact that Buffalo has zero running game right now, and I must go with KC. It’s about time I did another film inspired column, and I have a feeling Wick is filled with massive amounts of platinum status quotes. Prepare yourself.

San Francisco @ New Orleans (-5.5) – This is pretty close to a must-win game for San Francisco, but it’s hard to give them the benefit of the doubt, based on the fact they’ve closed about as successfully as A.C. Green this season. New Orleans has looked great as of late, so this one’s a no-brainer and close to “lock of the week”, territory.

Tennessee @ Baltimore (-10) – With Baltimore’s secondary looking thinner than Anthony Weiner’s wiener, there’s a solid chance Mettenberger drops a few bombs, maybe even to my boy, the massively disappointing Justin Hunter… hold up… I just had this vision of Terrell Suggs going all “Alvin Mack” on the Tennessee rookies, the aforementioned Mettenberger and Bishop Sankey. That was enough to sway me.

Pittsburgh (-4.5) @ Jets – Betting on the Jets is like going to Tijuana, getting blacked-out, and paying a stripper extra to go “raw”. It’s a risk you may spend the rest of your life regretting. I know multiple people that have actually done this, and you may have read my referring to this in other posts, but I ask you now, does it ever get any less funny? Pittsburgh by a STD, er, TD.

Atlanta (-2.5) @ Tampa Bay – Picking between the Falcons and the Buccaneers is like deciding between being gelded or having to deep throat a rhino for 45 minutes, but Atlanta is coming off the bye and Julio Jones is hungry.

Denver (-12) @ Oakland – No clue how Oakland can keep this one close. Lock of the week territory. The Raiders simply lack the firepower to keep this game in range. I suppose Denver could drop another dud, but it’s not likely.

St. Louis @ Arizona (-7) – There’s nothing I respect about the Rams, other than their defensive line. Very much in the same fashion Suge Knight did Vanilla Ice, the Cardinals have been b*tch slapping their opponents all season long and I don’t see St. Louis matching up very well at all here.

Chicago @ Green Bay (-7.5) – In Jay Cutler’s past three trips to his division rivals, he’s averaged 190 passing yards and has combined to throw for just two touchdowns compared to a disgraceful 10 interceptions. And Green Bay ranks sixth in the league with 1.9 takeaways per game sooooo, get Cutler out of your fantasy lineups, NOW!!! I see no reason to believe this is the week he turns it around.

Carolina (+6.5) @ Philadelphia – I’m not willing to give Mark Sanchez more than 6 points here. I just can’t. That’s like predicting a David Spade film, in which he doesn’t have Chris Farley or Adam Sandler in it, to be successful. I will say this though: One of the most underrated films of all time is Spade’s Lost and Found, and Meet Joe Dirt is a certified hood classic, even though it wasn’t a box office success. Maybe Sanchez has a “Joe Dirt” moment this Sunday, but I’d say the odds are slim.

Dallas (7.5)  @ Jacksonville (London) – If Romo was out, I’d take Jacksonville all the way to 3 points, maybe even-money line, but the Cowboys should regain their swag against a run D that goes softer than Mike Golic after he’s called out by Bill Simmons on Twitter. Jacksonville has given me no real reason to trust them, so I’ll take Dallas in the bounce back.

 

Thank you for joining me on “Betting With Beddict.” Remember that I don’t consider myself a touting specialist or service- this is all for fun guys. So feel free to challenge my picks below or throw out some fantasy questions- either way, works for me. Want to get real intimate? Follow me on Twitter at @Tehol143 .

    I have Demarco. Should I drop Sproles to pick up Randle as a handcuff?

      @Kevin: if you’re never going to use sproles, sure. Depends on what’s going on with roster. Let me see it

      @Kevin: I mean sproles has more value than Randle and the whole team hates Randle but if you’re not going to use sproles anyway I don’t have a problem with it.

      • Kevin says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: Yea i mean it’s tough. They all hate him now and I believe Dunbar had more snaps last week so it’s tough to tell. It may not even be worth it to drop Sproles because who even knows now if the lead guy would be Randle or Dunbar. But thanks for the advice.

        • LT Murray IV

          @Kevin: Id prefer Dunbar. Randle doesnt have much value honestly

  3. BEATS by Ray says:

    Is there a good drop here for Kyle Rudolph?? Need a 2nd TE for ROS, Or should I just hold?..I’m 6-3 in a very competitive league where waiver wire is always thin, here’s my roster:
    QBs: Palmer, Stafford, Rivers (picked up Palmer to stream this week, not sure about Stafford)
    RBs: Forte, Ellington, Bush, Charles Sims
    WRs: Mancrush Antonio Brown (steelers fan), Marshall, OBJ, Josh Gordon, Boldin
    TE: Kelce
    I need your help Tehol, Ive been gettin mixed reviews everywhere… you’re my last hope

    • BEATS by Ray says:
      (link)

      @BEATS by Ray: So in other words, better start u think? Palmer or Stafford… and in my FLEX Bush, Boldin or OBJ?… u tha man B, thanks!

      • LT Murray IV

        Tehol Beddict says:
        (link)

        @BEATS by Ray: Carson has the superior matchup but its tough to sit a guy with the weapons he has coming back. Palmer has nice matchup this week tho and dolphins been playing out of this world. I think you’ll be ok either way. Id probably still start stafford but I like to live dangerously. Palmer is a good play and I totally feel your logic here. OBJ at seattle? Nah, son. This is Boldin all day at New Orleans. You got this.

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @BEATS by Ray: either way you’re good. Im not gonna sacrifice season to get rudolph but he does have very nice upside, but no higher than Kelce’s basically since Bridgewater is throwing him the rock. You could just drop Palmer or Rivers after this week as you’ll be starting Stafford every game from here on out.

      You’re last hope??? YOU come to me last, Raymond? I’m shocked and upset by this new but I think we can move past this and get to a better place. i would just drop the 3rd qb for him and u money

      @Tarman Got Him: every time Spade does that Neil Diamond song I literally cannot stop laughing. I’m in tears just thinking about it

  5. Switched Me Once... says:

    Need last minute QB advice…

    With Brady on the bye-bench, does it make sense to start Romo vs Jaguars…or McCown vs Falcons…or Mettenberger vs Ravens…or Vick vs Steelers…or Bortles vs Cowboys…or Orton vs Chiefs?

    Even if Romo doesn’t get sacked and DNF by Jags’ defense, can’t imagine that he’s going to do more that hand off to Murray and throw occasional short pass.

    My other choices are lame, but pickings are slim. I’m leaning to rolling the dice with Mettenberger, as he showed well against Texans and Ravens have rolled out the carpet for TDs through the air.

    • Switched Me Once... says:
      (link)

      @Switched Me Once…: I just held my nose and put McCown in the lineup.

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Switched Me Once…: fukkkk, sorry dude. this comment didnt post till after game time I don’t think. I didnt see it any way. I’m really sorry about that. you were correct with Romo. Dez just made his numbers look great. that sucks. at least not mettenberger

  6. Dom B says:
    (link)

    Who to start at flex Percy Harvin, Odell Becham Jr., F Jax if he plays, Charles Sims

    Also ROS Percy Harvin or Odell Beckham Jr.

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Dom B: Percy this week no doubt. tough call between him and Beckham going forward tho. maybe would lead beckhs but percy now focal point of offense

  7. Dom B says:
    (link)

    Who to start at TE Larry Donnell or Delaine Walker

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:

      @Dom B: Walker

    now 39-33-2
    ATL -2.5
    SEA -9
    DET -3
    BUF +1.5
    NO -5.5
    BAL -10
    PIT -4.5
    DEN -12
    ARI -7
    CHI +7.5
    DAL -7.5 (this would be much easier if weeded played)
    CAR +6.5 (however, if Cam can’t cover this spread i’d be careful ever starting him again, not that i own him anywhere this year as is)
    Lock BUF (sammy is playing).

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @goodfold2: in fact it would actually be nearly impossible to get that BUF spread (unless maybe you went through KC bookies), now that f-jax/watkins playing. spread is -2 BUF in some places.

      • goodfold2 says:

    Would you trade Roddy white and Odell Beckham for Alshon Jeffery

  11. BraunWeasleys says:
    (link)

    Need your expert help on a trade here!

    I feel like josh gordon can somewhat repeat last years season and will be ready to help me for the fantasy playoffs.

    I was offered Benjamin and Gordon for me Demaryius Thomas.

    Benjamin has his big games but can be inconsistent at times.

    Im 8-2 in this 16 team league, so I dont feel like I need to take the risk but gordons upside keeps on getting me frisky

    Thanks!!

    • Tehol Beddict says:
