Wagering With Ira

November 6th, 2020

Handicapper.

Follow along as JoeBucsFan.com columnist Ira Kaufman makes three NFL picks each week against the spread.

Point spreads courtesy of betMGM app. You may follow various point spreads courtesy of VegasInsider.com as of Friday noon.

UNCLE IRA

Baltimore -2
at Indianapolis

Baltimore has played very well on the road and Lamar Jackson is due for a breakout game.

Pittsburgh -14
at Dallas

That’s a substantial point spread, but how in the world can the injury-ravaged Cowboys succeed against Mike Tomlin’s swarming defense?

Miami
at Arizona -4.5

While Miami is a feel-good story at this point, Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins intend to bring the Dolphins back down to Earth.

JOE

Carolina
at Kansas City -10.5

When in doubt… Mahomes. 

Las Vegas
at L.A. Chargers (Pickem)

Joe is going to take a wild stab here and hope that Ira’s buddy Gus Bradley doesn’t choke away another win. Dude is going to be managing a 24-hour Exxon station in suburban Scranton if this keeps up.

Denver
at Atlanta -4

The Dixie Chicks are in disarray with players and wives calling out the team on social media. Joe almost hates to wager on a complete and dang fool of a quarterback (Drew Lock) who dumped a beauty queen billionairess who is also an heir to an NFL team. 

Last week: Ira: 1-2;  Joe: 2-1.

Season record: Ira: 15-9,  Joe: 10-14.

    To quote OJ Simpson: “I will take a stab at this”:

    Pittsburgh -14 (Dallas is really, really bad, could lose to the Jets).
    Miami +4.5 (Tua is a special kid, I think the Fins hangs with the Cards in the desert).
    New England -7.5 The Pats are not good, heck they could end up 4-12 but two of those wins will be over the Jets.

    Baltimore -2, Pittsburg -14, and KC -10.5

    Although, the Steelers giving 14 IN Dallas makes me nervous

    ^^^^Glad I cannot place bets in FL. Didn’t know McCaffery was playing (dumb!). And WTF is up with Dallas, or is it Pitts?! Harry has always hated the Steelers – now I have more reason to…

    I suck

    ^^^ At least I beat Joe and tied Ira!
