Nostrathomas, seer of Sayers, was feeling a correction in the force during the early games last Sunday but recovered in fine fashion to finish 13-3 straight-up and 10-6 against the spread, the third straight week that Nostrathomas has finished .500 or better against the house this season.
Record for the year is now 35-13 straight-up and 31-17 against the spread.
Week 4 is the first bye week of the season. The New England Patriots take a break from the Belichick/Brady screw Goodell and the NFL tour while the Tennessee Titans reflect back on the first three weeks of the Marcus Mariota era.
As always these predictions are for entertainment purposes only. If you lose money you have only yourself to blame and should have listened to your mother about the evils of gambling. If you win, Nostrathomas reminds you that soothsaying is tough, thirsty work and beer ain’t exactly cheap these days.
Baltimore Ravens -3 @ Pittsburgh Steelers
The Ravens are 0-3 but favored on the road against their AFC North rival. The Steelers hold the statistical edge against Baltimore but that was with Ben Roethlisberger at quarterback…
Considering that favorites were dropping all over the NFL in Week 2 Nostrathomas was thrilled to finish the week 9-7 straight-up and 8-8 against the spread. Record for the 2015 season is now 22-10 straight-up and 21-11 against the spread.
Week 3 presents nine teams that will be attempting to stay undefeated, nine that will be attempting to win their first game of 2015 and a few that will try to keep their playoff dreams from dying until the leaves fall.
Remember, as always these predictions are for entertainment purposes only. If you lose money you have only yourself to blame and should have listened to your mother about the evils of gambling. If you win Nostrathomas reminds you that generosity is food for the soul…
Who the man? Nostrathomas the man! Nostrathomas can talk big after going 13-3 both straight-up and against the spread in Week 1.
As for this week, everyone starts Week 2 back at 0-0, unless you missed on Thursday night’s game, which, in that case you start 0-1
Denver Broncos @ Kansas City Chiefs -3
Nostrathomas had no faith in Peyton Manning’s ability to win in Kansas City after his dismal performance against the Ravens. Even though Manning put up 256-yards passing and an 86.9 Passer Rating, Nostrathomas stands by that analysis. Manning was shot-putting passes all night. (Are receivers allowed to call for fair catches?)…
All you fans who have spent the past few days out of sight while counting your Week 1 winnings, welcome to Week 2. Nostrathomas rode the fumes of freshly fermented beer to a 13-3 record both straight up and against the spread. The were a few events that were cloudy and hard to see going into last weekend but nothing is invisible where hindsight is concerned…
Chicago Bears Preseason Wrap: The Good, Bad & Ugly
The Bears finished the 2015 preseason with a 3-1 record but as always in training camp, past performance is not always a good indicator of future results. Due to draft failures of the past two general manager administrations, Jerry Angelo’s and Phil Emery’s, the Bears have been relying on the free agent market to fill holes. This has led to this team being one of the oldest in the NFL.
The Bears currently also lack talent and depth at key positions as John Fox heads into his first season as head coach but there are also some positives though to look forward to. Here’s a look at a few from both sides of the equation…
The 10 Worst Draft Day Trades In NFL History
In the offseason schedule the NFL Draft is the event that generates the most hope in fans. Free agency brings in players that team followers hope will improve a team’s playoff chances but the draft brings in a collection of talent that all hope will be the turning point in their team’s success.
Over the years trades have become an integral part of draft day activities. Teams may have their eye on a player but aren’t in position to draft him, may be pursuing an established player at an important position, or may trade down to receive more picks and add depth to a roster.
Some teams will win but there’s always the chance that one will set back their rebuilding efforts like these did…
Browns Take Revenge on Bengals: Autopsy of an Upset
The shadows of past greatness are beginning to awaken in Cleveland. Paul Brown in his trademark hat roaming the sidelines, Otto Graham dropping back to pass, Jim Brown laying bone-crushing hits on would-be tacklers, now the 2014 Cleveland Browns are 6-3 and all alone atop the AFC North Division after smothering the Cincinnati Bengals 24-3 in Week 10…
