WEEK 13 PHENOMENAL FOCUS STAR SELECTIONS

WEEK 12 RECAP AND  FOCUS GOES PERFECT: 

Well good weeks all round last week with the LOWEST score being 21 by Coach Cross.  3 coaches made it into the 30’s but only 1 coach made the 50 point mark and off course it was the superior, phenomenal HEAD COACH FOCUS!!!!!!! I had a comment on the website last week from NGOKU who predicted that i would go 0/3 for thanksgiving and 0/5 for the sunday star selections.  Ive a sneaky feeling that JP was responsible for the post as the exact opposite occured YES YES YES focus goes PERFECT as predicted. I had a quick look through the whatsapp messages from JP and Ross………..have a read, a laugh and a giggle:

I DIDNT WANT TO PUT IN ALL THE MESSAGES BUT ROSS GOATED ME INTO A BET BUT PICKED THE WRONG COACH FOR THAT. LIKE ROSS SAID WE CAN SORT OUT AT CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! €750 €750 €750 €750 €750

JP JUMPED ON THE BAND WAGON VS FOCUS, FELL OFF AND LOST €300. DID NONE OF YOU GUYS LEARN ANYTHING FROM SEANNY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

FOCUS SPEAKS TOO SOON AND STARTS TO GIVE JP ALLLLLL HIS MONEY BACK!!!

Anyway i didnt want to say to much and i know you are all eagerly waiting on the award winning, bookie bashing, phenomenal focus star selections for week 13 so lets get to it

PHENOMENAL FOCUS WEEK 13 NFL STAR SELECTIONS:

VS
New England Patriots (9-2) at Buffalo Bills (6-5)

MY 5 Star selection for this week is the Patriots away to the bills.  I don’t understand this spread at all as i have it at -13 even -14.  The bills are terrible on both sides of the football and there up against the best QB in the league the best coach in the league and the patriot defense is showing up now. It used to be that the patriots would just outscore you but i dont see the bills having much success on Sunday and will give up before they even enter the 2nd half and here’s why: The patriots are 1st in pass yards, 1st in total yardage and 3rd in points scored this year. Defensivley since the bye in week 9 they have only conceeded 16,8 & 17 points which is phenomenal. I have always said it give me a great QB vs a poor team and i will bet them every day and twice on Sunday. These numbers are superbowl winning numbers and they are up against a poor team. I see the patriots winning by 20 with the exception of a backdoor TD to bring the number closer to 13 which is what i think the number should be.  In relation to the bills the last time they had a big game at home, the Saints walked into Orchard Park and absolutely demolished them, winning 47-10. New Orleans ran all over Buffalo, and Drew Brees completed all the passes he needed to in order to consistently move the chains. The Saints tallied nearly 500 net yards of offense, as they were completely unstoppable.   I don’t see why things would suddenly be different in this matchup, considering that the Patriots and Saints are very close in overall team strength. The Bills, who have struggled to stop the run will fail to contain Dion Lewis and Rex Burkhead, thanks in part to their attention being on Tom Brady.

Patriots win 40-17 (30-7 half time)

VS
Detroit Lions (6-5) at Baltimore Ravens (6-5)

My 4 star selection is the ravens at home to the Lions. In this matchup this is more of a pick against the Lions as i think they are a struggling team. The Ravens defense on the other hand is playing at a far superior level and are at home. I had this spread at 6 or even 7 and to my amazement its only 3 WHAT!!!!!!!!! Im all over this as the ravens and since there bye week 10 beat greenbay by 23 and the texans by 7 conceeding only 16 points in the process. In fact in 2 of there last 4 matches the ravens held the opposing offenses to ZERO points (Miami & Greenbay) There defense will create a load of short yardage situations for Flacco who is still a really good QB when called upon and needed. I reckon a defensive TD score or 2 will happen here as stafford will be running for his life for most of the game. Its also a big note that Stafford is not fully fit and will struggle to move the chains. I see it as a low scoring game with the ravens winning by 7+.

Raven win 23-13

VS
Indianapolis Colts (3-8) at Jacksonville Jaguars (7-4)

My 3 star selection is the Colts vs the Jags. The Jaguars are one of the most overrated teams in the NFL and its  because of Blake Bortles and the offensive line. Bortles, as we were able to confirm this past Sunday, sucks. He never really knows what he’s doing, so he has to resort to checkdowns most of the time. Once he starts doing something different, he gives the ball away. He is useless and to be honest he should never be favoured by more than a field goal EVER. This spread is 9 which is 6 points off were it should be and i would not be surprised if the colts pulled the upset this week and won on the flat. Yeah i know its a big call but its revenge time for the colts as in week 7 went down 27-0. Since then they have covered every spread and won 2 of there matchups in fact every game was within a TD or less.  The colts are pushing every team they play all the way and i think will win today

Colts win 27-24 “shooting star selection”

VS
Carolina Panthers (8-3) at New Orleans Saints (8-3)
My 2 star selection this week is Saints at home vs the Panthers. This is another spread that i just dont get as i had/have it as the Saints -7 so im getting incredible value here with the Saints. Lets start with the Panthers………they should not have won last week vs the jets as the jets shot themselves in the foot twice in the 4th quarter and were very lucky to win the match. This was a case that the panthers didnt win the game the jets threw it away!!! In this matchup CAM will not be that lucky as Drew brees is a top 5 NFLsignal caller and will score a truck load of points today.  This is probsbly the most important game on the saints schedule this year as the winner will be top of the division. I feel like i am repeating myself with this team this year I have always said it give me an elite QB vs a poor opponent (Last week VERY POOR)  and i will take them every week and twice on Sunday. This spread should be saints -6 or even -7 and its only 4 (Well it is now currently) anyway thank you very much Vegas as Focus loves this pick. Back to the matchup the Saints are 6th in overall offense and 10th in Defense which is impressive. The Panthers on the other hand are 16th in offense and 8th in defense which would seem impressive but at a closer look who have they played with a winning record:  ANSWER 1 YES 1 and how did they do they lost!!  The Panthers are good vs losing teams but there up against it today. Saints win by double digits
Saints win  36-20

VS
Houston Texans (4-7) at Tennessee Titans (7-4)

Last but by no means least my 1 star selection is the titans at home vs the struggling skeleton crew Texans. This spread is nowhere near high enough as i would struggle to pick the Texans if they were getting double figures!!!!!!  I see the titans winning by double figures and with the spread being only 6 points hers’s why. Mariota is the far superior quarterback, the defense is far superior and the offense is far superior. Coaching is definetly better in the last few weeks. The titans have won 5 of there last 6 games and beaten some good teams in the process including the bengals and the Ravens. On the opposing side we have “Sloppy Savage” under centre which is good new for the Titans as he likes to give the ball away. There is not much more that we can say about the Texans until there elite QB is back……………..there awful

The Titans are the much better team, and I think they’ll dominate this game.

Titans win 36-16
