Peebles on Some of the Top 10 NFL Teams through Week 10

It’s official, 10 weeks of regular season NFL betting have passed, and Peebles has just about thrown in the towel in terms of trying to pick winners. He’s learned the hard way not to put too much stock in the Lions (even though they have won one game). He’s also learned, however, that his hunch about the break out Cincinnati Bengals team was the right call. No one saw this coming in September, but the ticket is in and the Bengals are #4 in the entire NFL, right behind Brett Favre and the miracle Minnesota Vikings. According to NFL.com, here’s the latest chart with the current win/loss records through Week 10 NFL betting, including ties and last 5 game results:
NFL – 2009 Regular Season
NFL Team Conf Div W L T Pct Streak Last 5
Indianapolis Colts AFC ACS 9 0 0 1.000 9W 5-0
New Orleans Saints NFC NCS 9 0 0 1.000 9W 5-0
Minnesota Vikings NFC NCN 8 1 0 .889 2W 4-1
Cincinnati Bengals AFC ACN 7 2 0 .778 3W 4-1
Arizona Cardinals NFC NCW 6 3 0 .667 2W 4-1
Dallas Cowboys NFC NCE 6 3 0 .667 1L 4-1
Denver Broncos AFC ACW 6 3 0 .667 3L 2-3
New England Patriots AFC ACE 6 3 0 .667 1L 3-2
Pittsburgh Steelers AFC ACN 6 3 0 .667 1L 4-1
Here’s some thoughts from Mr. Peebles on the top 10 teams:
  1. Colts – Peyton Manning and the Colts got LUCKY over the weekend…Really Lucky. They narrowly pulled off a win against a strong Patriots team that had them beat well into the 4th quarter. That’s why Mr. Manning gets the big bucks: he supposed to turn things around and pull off the improbable. As a result, the Colts are tied for #1, looking like the possible AFC champions. They’ve got a 9 game cushion to relax on – the rest of the season in in cruise control.

  2. Saints – If you thought Peyton Manning was good, you have to see Drew Brees. Unlike the Colts, who snuck by with a 1 point victory last weekend, the Saints have domineered opponents, winning all their games by a decisive margin. New Orleans is jumping for joy. Not only are the Saints poised to be the NFC champs, but they’re also a lock for the Super Bowl (so far…)

  3. Vikings – Favre was good in the 1990s. Then he took a couple breaks. Now, in 2009, coming out of the rest home for quarterbacks, he’s guided the Vikings to an amazing 8-1 record, on the heels of the powerhouse Saints team. All things considered, 8-1 isn’t so bad for a guy that’s retired a few times. The record is well deserved: the Vikings have put on a show this season, earning their 8-1 with guts and intelligent play.

  4. Bengals – Say What? Peebles mentioned this at the top of the post, but he’ll mention it again: “I told you so!” The Cats from Cinci have been the surprise heroes of Ohio this season, out pacing all expectations to tally a very respectable 7-2 record. Could we see a Bengals-Colts showdown later this year? It’s certainly within the realm of possibility. Look for the Bengals to continue to bust out… busting out NFL betting sportsbooks that is, where players have made off like bandits. Joe Bookie is shaking a cup on the corner, thanks to this superb team.
Good Luck NFL Betting Week 11 from Mr. Peebles!

NFL Betting – Peebles’ Picks for Sunday November 8, Week 9

🙂 Better late then never Pete Peebles is here, after a brief hiatus from offering free NFL picks due to a string of bad luck. Why go on break during the NFL season? Simple: Even though Mr. Peebles is a pretty much a dick head, he really doesn’t want you to lose your money, especially if it is because he made the wrong call. Every other capper in the industry will continue to sell you picks even if they SUCK, just because they are greedy dirt bags in need of money to fix a broken down ’89 Pontiac. You can be assured of one thing, Mr. Peebles is not living in his parent’s basement nor driving an ’89 Pontiac; and that means he makes a genuine effort at making his picks. Lately, the players have had a field day with the sportsbooks. The month of October was a downer if you were a bookie: online sportsbooks and betting joints in Vegas lost millions as players collected solid winnings. This is mostly due to the fact that there haven’t been any big upsets that would offset the standard bets players are making. As a result, if you’ve been playing the favorites over the past 30 days or so, you’re probably doing pretty well. The one thing you have to guard against is the close games (…umm excluding any against the Rams or Lions…). As the season continues to progress, we’ll be seeing better matchups and plenty of opportunities to make money. Meanwhile, the sportsbooks are praying that the tide changes fast. This brings us to NFL betting Week 9, roughly the mid-point of the overall season when the cream begins to rise to the top. Speaking of top teams, those Saints and Colts have put on a show in recent weeks, absolutely demolishing their opponents. Without a doubt, anyone who bets on the Saints to win is going to collect a nice payoff (that is, until the oddsmakers start to tighten up the lines). Likewise, Peyton Manning and the Cow Kids have kicked the crap out of their adversaries, joining the Saints as the top team with a 7-0 record. What’s more, Brett Favre’s 100th return from retirement has been a duzi: the Vikings are the #3 team, with a very respectable 7-1 record. Now, let’s get to the action… Don’t Forget: The Clocks were changed last weekend, so the NFL now starts at 2:00 PM EST from now on! Mr. Peebles Free Picks for NFL Betting Week 9
  1. Baltimore Ravens vs. Cincinnati Bengals – Sunday, November 8, 2009 – 2:00 PM EST. At the time of this post, it looks like the linesmakers are favoring the Ravens, with a -3/+3 Ravens/Bengals spread respectively. The Bengals have had a few solid games this season, albeit closely contested, and have fans in Cinci on their feet. The Ravens, on the other hand, have had a few coughs and sputters, but are generally a well respected team, coming in towards the middle of the league standings with a 4-3 record. The question is, are they better than the Bengals? If the Bengals have a good day, they could easily beat the spread and/or win outright. Mr. Peebles thinks, however, that the Ravens are the better team for this matchup. Take Baltimore for the WIN tomorrow.

  2. Houston Texans vs. Indianapolis Colts – Sunday, November 8, 2009 – 2:00 PM EST. Come on Peebles, this one is a freebie! Challenge yourself! Well, everyone should have it easy once in a while. The spread for this matchup is currently +9/-9 Texans/Colts respectively, which does offer a glimmer of hope for the Good ‘Ole boys from Texas to squeeze in. Mr. Peebles is going to play it safe, though, and thinks that the Colts and their super-charged offense will probably destroy the Texans before the first half is over. Take the Colts for the easy WIN in this game.

  3. Miami Dolphins vs. New England Patriots – Sunday, November 8, 2009 – 2:00 PM EST. Hold your horses folks, this one might be close, only because of the wide open spread being offered by top online sportsbooks. At the moment, its +10.5/-10.5 Dolphins/Patriots respectively, which could, like the Colts/Texans game provide enough room for the Dolphins to sneak in. Will the Mahi Mahi from Miami win outright? No, at least if the Patriots want a prayer at having a post season. 10.5 points means the sportsbooks aren’t looking for a tie: they want a definitive winner. As a result, Peebles is going with the flow and will take the Patriots for the win. It could be VERY close given 10.5 points, but the Dolphins will need to have a very good day. Take the Pats for the WIN.

  4. Detroit Lions vs. Seattle Seahawks – Sunday, November 8, 2009 – 5:05 PM EST. Ok, so you’re probably thinking Peebles has lost his stones, picking the Patriots and Colts as winners in their respective contests. No so hard, right? Any 5 year old with a wheat penny could do that, right? Well here’s blockbuster pick for you. The spread on this matchup is +10/-10 Lions/Seahawks respectively. Well, Peebles has taken the Lions before and been burned. This is a different case, however, because 10 points either way seems like a lot, even for the half way decent Seahawks. So that said, Peebles is going to take the Lions to BEAT the spread. (This is crazy, right? Let’s wait and see…)

  5. Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Denver Broncos Monday Night Football – Monday, November 9, 2009 – 9:05 PM EST. This is a tough one for sure. On one side of the field, we have the Denver Broncos, who went undefeated up until last week. On the other, the Pittsburgh Steelers, who haven’t quite lived up to expectations this season, even though they’re currently sporting a 5-2 record. So what’s the call? The odds are in the Steelers’ favor: -3/+3 Pittsburgh/Denver respectively. Unlike Peebles other picks, the spread on this one is much closer, meaning it’s a tougher pick to make. Well no challenge is too tall for Peebles. He’s going with the Broncos for the win. Sorry Pittsburgh fans, it’s not going to happen this Monday. Take the Broncos for the WIN.
Good Luck NFL Betting Week 9 from Mr. Peebles!
