WEEK 6 RECAP:
Well i only have 2500 characters on this post and if i did a detailed recap on week 6 i would have no words left to discuss the star selections for this week. I will say that globally the only winners were the bookies and Vegas i mean Falcons giving 11 winning by 17 at half time and losing to the Dolphins, Broncos giving up 11 and losing to the giants and the bears getting 7 and winning on the flat……..well i called that one!!! There is nothing to be said on our own picks as the highest score between all 8 of us was 13. I am putting it down to a mad week and lets just move on.
Anyway your all reading and tuning in to get the star selections for this week so you can make some money and with my record why wouldnt you. Lets get straight to it.
PHENOMENAL FOCUS WEEK 7 NFL STAR SELECTIONS:
Denver Broncos (3-2) at Los Angeles Chargers (2-4)
MY 5 Star selection for this week is the Broncos away against one of the worst teams in the league the Chargers who always snatch defeat from the jaws of victory and yeah unbelievably the spread is only +1 to the visitor. This makes absolutely no sense this week: The broncos are an elite superbowl contender and the san diego/LA who gives a fuck chargers are a bottom feeder. The Broncos are the better team, and they should be favored by at least three in this matchup. That’s my line, and I was shocked to see that the Chargers were favored. I cant really say any more about this matchup the better team is getting points so im all over it.
Broncos win 27-16
New Orleans Saints (3-2) at Green Bay Packers (4-2)
My 4 star selection is the Packers at home to the saints and the only reason is the spread. I sat and watched A…..Aron break his collar bone but the defense is still there and at home they are a phenomenal team. The saints are coming off an impressive win but that was at home and the saints are a different offensive team on grass which is why i think this spread is absurd!!! Dont get me wrong i had this spread at -3 due to the Rodgers injury but -6 with there defense????????????? I reckon this will be a low scoring slug fest and close within a field goal. I will be interested to see how Hundley does as he will have a full week of practice.
Cincinnati Bengals (2-3) at Pittsburgh Steelers (4-2)
My 3 star selection is on the Bengals +5 away to the steelers. The Bengals are coming off a bye which has given them 2 weeks to prepare for this game. These divisional games over the years are always close and with both QB’s regressing, both offenses not firing this will prove to be a low scoring slugfest. I again had this spread at -3 to the steelers so again im getting incredible value here going through 3 and 4 point numbers. I actually give the Bengals a big chance in this matchup and i know the steelers beat the Chiefs last week but the Chiefs might not be the team that everyone thinks they are. The Bengals pull the upset here and i think the matchup pretty well against the steelers.
Bengals win 19-16
Baltimore Ravens (3-3) at Minnesota Vikings (4-2)
Seattle Seahawks (3-2) at New York Giants (1-5)
Last but by no means least my 1 star selection is the Giants at home vs the Hawks. This should be a tight, defensive battle, as neither Seattle nor New York blocks well. The Giants have at least figured out a new trick with their offensive line coming of a surprising win vs the Broncos, and they’re playing with enthusiasm and nothing to lose. That’s always been when Eli Manning has been at his best. Remember that superbowl win vs the patriots when he was down by 2 scores!!!!!! That said, this can only be a 1 star selection for me as there offense has been descimated by injuries. Their offense going up against Seattle’s defense just seems like a huge mismatch, and Russell Wilson could use his magic to win by the score of 16-6, or something. However, Seattle still seems to be overvalued and let me be honest the hawks are not the dominant force it was in the past.
Hawks win 17-14
FOCUS FINAL THOUGHTS FOR WEEK 7:
Other notables are the Panthers -3, Cardinals and the Eagles. Here comes the rant……..I dont know how i didnt get my 10 pointer this week as the chiefs were winning all the way and lost to a last second TD………….actually there was no time on the clock so i need to think of a new phrase maybe Fergi time in the NFL!!!!!!! Stay with me for a second: 4&11 with 33 seconds, 4&5 with 11 seconds, incomplete pass with no time FLAG by rule extended by 1 play, another incomplete pass but holding by the chiefs extended by one play again and with no time on the clock for now and the previous 4 plays they score a touchdown all the while up by 6 points!!!!!! For fuck sake. Nothing on whatsapp about hard luck Focus or unlucky there, all i get is “if Focus pulls this one out of the bag” and how does he do it!!! No love but will be back on top this week. Good luck coaches
