On a nice little roll this weekend. Swept my Survivor picks, went 8-1-1 in the SuperContest and won the Play of the Week posted here yesterday. My real life gambling went pretty fucking awesome, so I'm sitting in the catbird* seat on this lovely Monday afternoon.
I have a play on the total in the Monday Night Football game tonight. I expect the Giants to try and exploit the linebacker weakness in Atlanta and run Barkley as much as possible. Shorten the game, take some pressure off of Eli and try to steal a road win. We have a generous number at 52.5 and keep in mind, the Chiefs went under last night at 55 total points. These inflated numbers hit when both teams are firing on all cylinders. We get a few punts, a few offensive mistakes, and this one falls comfortably under.
Atlanta Under 52'.........three stars
