NFL Free Picks Week 17: Packers Rout Bears

By JoeDuffy.net Administrator

Matt Rivers has a huge NFL spread picks winner Sunday is on the Green Bay Packers -9.5 to Chicago.

Reasoning: Jay Cutler and the Bears have had a great season but after the Falcons dispatch the Panthers, which I’m hard pressed to believe won’t happen, then this game will be rendered meaningless and we will see a bunch of reserves for Chicago get action. In this rivalry Lovie Smith’s boys should still compete but they are up against a team that has too much going for them to slip up.

Aaron Rodgers proved a lot to me last week coming back from the concussion and looking as good as he did in what really was an elimination game against the Giants. Now the Packers are involved in another game that they have to win and if they do then they will be in the playoffs. When you factor in their motivation along with a lack of Bears motivation and the home field advantage of Lambeau plus a matter of revenge after losing the first game at Soldier Field then I just do not see this game ending up in single digits.

Green Bay won at the Meadowlands in a shutout against the playoff bound Jets, should have beaten New England on the road with Matt Flynn, squashed the Giants last week and overall have the upside to win the Super Bowl. This team is no joke and that is with a ton of injuries this season. With Rodgers back in the fold and the season once again on the line we are about to see a 31-10 demolition as the men in yellow and green quality for the postseason.

Top expert pick on this game: Green Bay -9.5

For more information: The Jaguars need a win if they are to have any hope at making the playoffs. But they are a banged up club without their two best offensive weapons here against an underachieving but still pretty talented Texans squad. What does that mean? Matt Rivers will let you know in a major way with this 400,000* play along with a 200,000* from Motown involving the Vikings and Lions. Matt Rivers’ premium picks up

Matt Rivers Free Pick is Michigan State vs. Alabama

By JoeDuffy.net Administrator

Great sports handicapper Matt Rivers has Michigan State today getting eight from Alabama.

Reasoning: Alabama truly may be the best team in the country. In a one game situation Nick Saban’s squad quite possibly would be favored over anybody on a neutral field. But just like a few seasons ago against Utah at the Superdome how in the world can the Crimson Tide players be all that excited about this game?

Emotions clearly play a major part in this time of the year and going down south in the Capital One Bowl just should not do it for the Tide. Just look at Georgia, Clemson and Miami yesterday alone as neither of the three showed much of anything in games they probably were not destined to play in earlier in the season.  Guys like Mark Ingram, Trent Richardson and Julio Jones are awesome and future NFL players for sure. Greg McElroy is a quality signal caller who can more than hold his own against the Spartans but is also coming off of that injury against Auburn and who knows if that can affect the guy. I can see these Alabama players just going through the motions a bit and all in all for Michigan State to be the far more motivated squad and the team with a chip on its shoulder after being kept out of the BCS.

I do not believe that Mark D’Antoni’s boys are as good as either Wisconsin or Ohio State but the players do have a beef as they were 11-1 and BCS worthy. Plus they were the lone team to down the Badgers and should feel a little hosed. Being left out basically off the field should fuel State and especially so when playing against the defending National Champions.

Look for Kirk Cousins and Sparty to be the more emotional team and stay within this number. A win may be a bit much but it also may not be. After that dreadful implosion against rival Auburn how can the Tide really be all that ready to play today?

Top expert pick on this game: Michigan State from Matt Rivers

For more information: There is no more powerful play Matt Rivers’ arsenal than a 500,000* and the first and possibly only one in the bowl season is here. I released this game a few weeks ago for whoever wanted to get ahead of the game and now the day of reckoning is here!

500,000* Michigan-Mississippi State plus a bonus 200,000* involving TCU and Wisconsin. 2-0? I’m in need of a big, big day and today is that day. Matt Rivers 500K lock is up
