Charlie’s Pick for Week #4

    650 487 Charlie the Unicorn

    Welcome to Charlie The Unicorns Week #3 Predictions.

    After 3 weeks, Straight up Charlie 26-22 , Oliver 26-22 / ATS Charlie 18-30. This is easily the worst week of predictions I’ve had in 3 years. It was remarkably bad. But, as everyone knows, you get back on the horse and make predictions the next week.
    There are a ridiculous number of 2-1 or 1-2 teams in the NFL headed into week #4….. the commish is again very pleased.

    BYE WEEK: Packers, Eagles

    Thursday Night Football

    Miami at Cincinnati – Thu, Sep 29, 8:25 PM ET (Color Rush)

    Point Spread : -7 Bengals
    O/U : 46.5
    Prediction: 28 – 20 Bengals / Actual 22 – 7 Bengals

    #FinsUp

    Sunday Football

    Indianapolis at Jacksonville – Sun, Oct 2, 9:30 AM ET (London)

    Point Spread : -2 Colts
    O/U : 49.0
    Prediction: 30 – 27 Colts

    I can easily see the Jaguars winning this game. Luck is banged up with a mysterious shoulder injury, but degenerate gamblers are taking the colts. Luck to TY Hilton… winner.

    Tennessee at Houston – Sun, Oct 2, 1:00 PM ET

    Point Spread : -4.5 Texans
    O/U : 40.5
    Prediction: 24 – 16 Texans

    JJ Watt is out. However, the Titans are not executing at a high level. Expect a ton of rushing from both teams, trying to keep their defenses fresh and potent. Fuller + Hopkins should be enough to get the job done for the Texans.

    Cleveland at Washington – Sun, Oct 2, 1:00 PM ET

    Point Spread : -7.5 Skins
    O/U : 47.5
    Prediction: 34 – 14 Skins

    The Skins should win, they are at home. Watching Pryor play on offense and defense was fun to see. Tremendous athlete and talent.

    Seattle at NY Jets – Sun, Oct 2, 1:00 PM ET

    Point Spread : -1.5 Seahawks
    O/U : 39.5
    Prediction: 16 – 13 Seahawks

    Injuries leading into the game and the players returning will give the Seahawks the edge.

    Buffalo at New England – Sun, Oct 2, 1:00 PM ET

    Point Spread : -7.0
    O/U : 42.5
    Prediction: 27 – 26 Patriots

    Everyone is assuming the Patriots will roll on this game. I’m not so sure… every QB is banged up for them and the possibility of Edleman playing QB

    Carolina at Atlanta – Sun, Oct 2, 1:00 PM ET

    Point Spread : -3.0 Panthers
    O/U : 50.5
    Prediction: 28 – 24 Panthers

    I’m not sure if the SB hangover has worn off, but if the Panthers drop this game…. they are in BIG trouble.

    Oakland at Baltimore – Sun, Oct 2, 1:00 PM ET

    Point Spread : -3.5 Ravens
    O/U : 46.5
    Prediction: 33 – 28 Raiders

    The Raiders on the road, scary. They have the more complete offense. Flacco could feast on the secondary of the Raiders, but going with the gut on this one.

    Detroit at Bears – Sun, Oct 2, 1:00 PM ET

    Point Spread : -3.0 Lions
    O/U : 48.0
    Prediction: 30 – 24 Lions

    Jim Bob Cooter has created a dynamic offense that can score, except for WR Golden Tate… who is MIA. The Bears are banged up and frankly a very bad team.

    Denver at Tampa Bay – Sun, Oct 2, 4:05 PM ET

    Point Spread : -3.0 Broncos
    O/U : 43.0
    Prediction: 30 – 10 Broncos

    Championship caliber defense will hold down the Bucs. Need I say more?

    Los Angeles at Arizona – Sun, Oct 2, 4:25 PM ET

    Point Spread : -8.0 Cardinals
    O/U : 43.0
    Prediction: 24 – 21 Cardinals

    The Rams have a chance. Palmer has not looked like himself and the WRs are not helping him out. I think it will be a close game, but let’s go with the home team.

    New Orleans at San Diego – Sun, Oct 2, 4:25 PM ET

    Point Spread : -3.5 Chargers
    O/U : 53.5
    Prediction: 33 – 32 Chargers

    The Saints are terrible on the road. Many injuries on both sides of the ball for both teams. Very unpredictable game. Home team have the edge when predicting games

    Dallas at San Francisco – Sun, Oct 2, 4:25 PM ET

    Point Spread : -1.5 Cowboys
    O/U : 44.5
    Prediction: 24 – 23 49ers

    No Rookie QB has ever won their 1st 3 games with the Cowboys since 1970. Let’s go with the trend.

    Kansas City at Pittsburgh – Sun, Oct 2, 8:30 PM ET

    Point Spread : -4.0 Steelers
    O/U : 47.0
    Prediction: 34 – 24 Steelers

    I’m calling it the L’Bell effect. Steelers get back on schedule in the passing offense.

    Monday Night Football

    NY Giants at Minnesota – Mon, Oct 3, 8:30 PM ET

    Point Spread : -4.5 Vikings
    O/U : 44.0
    Prediction: 24 – 21 Vikings

    Go with the for real defense to keep up the outstanding play. This should be an exciting game to watch, for once, on Monday Night Football.

    Remember SKAsians, don’t hate the player, hate the game.
