Week 10 Picks

8:20 PM Thursday, November 08, 2012

Indianapolis (-3.0)
Schultz Picks: Indianapolis

World Picks: 90.7% - Indianapolis
IND 27 JAC 10 Indianapolis Wins
Your Pick:

Maybe the surprise team at the midpoint of the season is the Indianapolis Colts. Andrew Luck threw for 433 yards against a good Dolphins defense, as the Colts are now 5- 3. With Jacksonville, they only have one win this year, that being at Indianapolis back in Week 3. But since then, you can say the Colts have gotten better and the Jags stayed the same. Colts cover the 3.

1:00 PM Sunday, November 11, 2012

NY Giants (-4.0)
Schultz Picks: Cincinnati

World Picks: 83.6% - NY Giants
NYG 13 CIN 31 Cincinnati Wins
Your Pick:

Both teams have regressed. For Cincinnati, they have lost four in a row after being 4-1 at one point. For the Giants, they beat Dallas – barely - and last week lost to Pittsburgh, 24-20, in a game they should have lost by a bigger score. A pattern continues with the Bengals; they beat the teams they should beat and lose to those teams with a winning record. Giants win, Bengals keep it close. Bengals.

1:00 PM Sunday, November 11, 2012

Miami (-6.0)
Schultz Picks: Miami

World Picks: 75.6% - Miami
TEN 37 MIA 3 Tennessee Wins
Your Pick:

There may be only one game in wins when you compare the two teams but the Dolphins are the better team. Five of Tennessee's six losses have come by at least 21 points. With Miami, it is the opposite; three losses by three points, one point, and the first one by 20 points. If Miami can contain Chris Johnson, this could be an easy win. Johnson did have an 80 yard run versus a good Bears defense last week. I expect Miami to get back to being an excellent 3rd down defense. Miami covers 6.

1:00 PM Sunday, November 11, 2012

Detroit (-1.0)
Schultz Picks: Detroit

World Picks: 72.2% - Detroit
DET 24 MIN 34 Minnesota Wins
Your Pick:

Tampa Bay scored 36 against Minnesota in Week 8 and Seattle scored 30 against the Vikings last week. Detroit should score some points on the Vikings' defense as well. The last month of football has been pretty good in Detroit; winning three of four and the only loss being a 13-7 defeat against the Bears in Week 7 when red zone fumbles were a big problem. Minnesota is the opposite; they've lost three of four and may be playing up to expectations. Detroit covers the 1.

1:00 PM Sunday, November 11, 2012

New England (-11.0)
Schultz Picks: New England

World Picks: 83.6% - New England
BUF 31 NE 37 Buffalo Wins
Your Pick:

The Patriots are 22-2 against Buffalo since the 2000 season and they are coming off the bye week, so they will be as physically ready as they have been in a long time. Presently 5-3, their three losses could have easily been wins: A Seattle loss by one, Baltimore by one, and Arizona by two. Coming of the bye week and heading into mid-November has tangible benefits. Patriots cover 11

1:00 PM Sunday, November 11, 2012

Atlanta (-1.0)
New Orleans
Schultz Picks: Atlanta

World Picks: 64.7% - Atlanta
ATL 27 NO 31 New Orleans Wins
Your Pick:

The Saints' record against the Falcons with Sean Payton is 10-2 and they have won six of their last seven. But no more Sean Payton and that makes a big difference. The season is on the line for the Saints because if they lose this one, they will have their sixth loss in nine games which means they would have to win seven in a row to have a 10-win season and a playoff chance. Matt Ryan is too polished to let that happen. Atlanta covers 1.

1:00 PM Sunday, November 11, 2012

San Diego
Tampa Bay (-3.0)
Schultz Picks: Tampa Bay

World Picks: 75.1% - Tampa Bay
SD 24 TB 34 Tampa Bay Wins
Your Pick:

In the last four games, the Bucs have scored 38, 28, 36 and 42 points. Running back Doug Martin is on his way for a possible Rookie of Year consideration and wide receiver Vincent Jackson is averaging over 20 yards a catch. With San Diego, their four wins have been over Kansas City twice, Tennessee and Oakland. From west to east, I will take the team in the east. Tampa Bay covers the 3.

1:00 PM Sunday, November 11, 2012

Denver (-3.5)
Schultz Picks: Denver

World Picks: 89.0% - Denver
DEN 36 CAR 14 Denver Wins
Your Pick:

In eight games, Denver has scored 30 points or more in five games - the last three games in a row. For Carolina, their best two games have been their last two outings; a win over Washington and a one-point loss to the Bears. There is too much confidence and skill with Payton Manning right now. Denver covers 3.5.

1:00 PM Sunday, November 11, 2012

Baltimore (-9.5)
Schultz Picks: Baltimore

World Picks: 65.4% - Baltimore
OAK 20 BAL 55 Baltimore Wins
Your Pick:

Baltimore is still a genuine playoff team at 6-2. The Raiders are quite the opposite. At 3-6, they would have to win seven of eight to make a playoff run - unlikely. If Buccaneers rookie running back Doug Martin could run all over the Raiders last week, so can veteran RB Ray Rice. And it looks like Raiders RB Darren McFadden will not play. Ravens cover at home.

4:05 PM Sunday, November 11, 2012

NY Jets
Seattle (-6.5)
Schultz Picks: Seattle

World Picks: 79.4% - Seattle
NYJ 7 SEA 28 Seattle Wins
Your Pick:

The Jets are coming off the bye week while the Seahawks are coming off a 30-20 win over Minnesota. Quarterback Russell Wilson has nine touchdown passes and no interceptions at home and the Seahawks are undefeated at CenturyLink Field in Seattle. Plus, running back Marshawn Lynch is closing in on 1,000 yards, sitting only 119 away from the mark. Poor run defense by the Jets and great defensive backs with the Seahawks means this could be another 10 point win. Seattle covers 6.5

4:25 PM Sunday, November 11, 2012

Dallas (-1.0)
Schultz Picks: Dallas

World Picks: 64.3% - Dallas
DAL 38 PHI 23 Dallas Wins
Your Pick:

Both teams have had disappointing season, sitting at 3-5. The problem last week for the Cowboys was red zone efficiency. Twice they were inside the 20 yard line of Atlanta and twice no touchdowns were scored. For Philadelphia, the problem is the overall ability to pass-block and run-block up front against an average, at best, Saints defense with only 13 points scored. In a game of problems and issues, Dallas has more manageable ones. Cowboys.

4:25 PM Sunday, November 11, 2012

St. Louis
San Francisco (-11.0)
Schultz Picks: San Francisco

World Picks: 73.5% - San Francisco
STL 24 SF 24 St. Louis Wins
Your Pick:

It is a lot of points but I don't see the Rams scoring a lot. Going back the past five weeks, the 49ers have allowed three points (vs. Arizona), six points (vs. Seattle), 26 points (vs. NY Giants), three points (vs. Buffalo) and zero points (vs. NY Jets). Both the Rams and Niners are coming off the bye week but for the 49ers, it's a bigger advantage because of their natural physical style. 49ers cover the 11.

8:20 PM Sunday, November 11, 2012

Chicago (-1.0)
Schultz Picks: Houston

World Picks: 51.3% - Chicago
HOU 13 CHI 6 Houston Wins
Your Pick:

This should be a great game. The Bears have won six in a row while the Texans have won seven of eight so far this season. The Texans' greatest asset is ball security. They have the least giveaways this year with six and have lost just one fumble. The Bears are the complete opposite in strength, as they may be the best in creating turnovers. Cornerback Charles Tillman had four forced fumbles against the Titans last week. These teams are both so good in so many ways... except I believe Matt Schaub will have a better game than Jay Cutler. Texans by 3.

8:30 PM Monday, November 12, 2012

Kansas City
Pittsburgh (-11.5)
Schultz Picks: Pittsburgh

World Picks: 89.3% - Pittsburgh
KC 13 PIT 16 Kansas City Wins
Your Pick:

The KC Chiefs, in what may be only looked at as bizarre, have never had a lead in any game this year and now have to play Ben Roethlisberger; a quarterback that at home has six touchdown passes, no interceptions, and a QB rating of 108. The Steelers are still a game behind the Ravens for first in the AFC North and get to play a Chiefs offense that has produced 13, 16, 10 and six point games over the last four outings. Steelers.
