Wagering With Ira

January 1st, 2021

Handicapper.

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

Point spreads courtesy of Joe’s good friends at BetMGM. You may follow various point spreads courtesy of VegasInsider.com as of Friday noon.

UNCLE IRA

Washington -2
at Philadelphia

Jalen Hurts will hurt Washington with his
mobility and the Eagles are eager to spoil Dan Snyder’s party.

Green Bay -5.5
at Chicago

Chicago is closing with a rush and Mitch Trubisky will hang with Aaron Rodgers to make it close.

L.A. Chargers -3.5
at Kansas City

Andy Reid is giving his guys a week off to rest and Justin Herbert will take advantage of the opportunity.

JOE

Minnesota -6.5
at Detroit

The Lions demonstrated last week they are done and have already mailed it in.

Arizona -3.5
at L.A. Rams

The Rams are starting an AAF quarterback who has never taken a snap in the NFL. This won’t be pretty as the Cardinals are fighting for their playoff lives.

Dallas -2
at N.Y. Giants

The Cowboys have an offense, but not much of a defense. Still, with a home playoff game hanging in the balance, it’s hard to not see the Cowboys winning by at least a field goal. 

Last week: Ira: 3-0,  Joe: 1-2.

Season record: Ira: 28-19-1,  Joe: 17-28.

    Minnesota -6.5 (@ Detroit)
    Arizona – 3.5 (@ Rams)
    Tampa -6.5 (vs ATL) I never bet on my Bucs, as they are so unpredictable… but

    I suck at this, but its the last regular season games, so what the heck…
