Foote Notes: NFL Observations – November 29, 2005


Buffalo prepared to Give Bills to”Under” bettors… Bills 13 (o/u) l-4 matches and stand a fantastic chance to keep this trend at Miami this week. Buffalo coming off 13-9 home loss to Carolina, easily staying under 37-point posted full, later Bills 30th ranked offense accumulated just 2 16 total yards. BUF settled for three field goals inside Panthers 20 yard line and also have scored League of Legends betting  touchdowns on just thirtythree percentage of their red zone tries that season. Last 3 games, Bills opponents averaging over 35 minutes of possession, leaving defense on field entirely too long. However, Buffalo defense has played three of past four games holding New England to 16 points, Kansas City to 3 points and Carolina into 9. So defense is stepping upward while crime continues to sputter with Dolphins 1-4 (o/u) L 5 on deck.

Ny ATM Giants Against Conference Foes… The G-Men improved to your close perfect 7-1 ATS vs. the NFC after 24-21 road loss to Seattle as 4.5-point dog with another conference foe–Dallas +3–coming up in home. Giants must have won also using a huge 490-355 advantage in total yards but three missed field goals cost money-line bettors. Tom Coughlin is also an unbelievable 26-11 ATS as a home favorite of seven points or less going back to his days at Jacksonville, for example 5-1 ATS this past year!

We can’t foresee this streak ending this week at Detroit either. Minny turn around notable since team started season 2-5 SU and also were the laughingstock of the NFL after boat scandal and Culpepper season ending injury only seemed like the proverbial the icing on the cake into the end of Mike Tice. But Brad Johnson 4-0 considering shooting increasingly more significantly Vikings defense hasn’t allowed more than 21 points and forced 5, 3, 2 and 5 turnovers during latest winning streak. On the other end of the spectrum would be the most dying Lions, who are 14 both SU and ATS their past five matches after awkward Thanksgiving loss to Atlanta. By the time you read this, Steve Mariucci could be”mooching” relatives members and friends to get a new endeavor.

Falcons Set To Soar… If matches really are obtained in the trenches afterward Carolina may be in trouble this week with huge home divisional game against Atlanta. Panthers coming from a 13-9 road win in Buffalo where they had a result from behind TD with just over three minutes remaining in regulation to extract the victory in Orchard Park. CAR conducted the ball 33 times for only 113 yards–a fair 3.4 average–contrary to the league’s 2nd worst rushing defense. But the 113 yards was probably the absolute most they’d gained over-land since week one against the Saints. Panthers’ 26th ranked ground attack has registered 100 or more rushing yards in only four of eleven matches this season. Falcons meanwhile boast that the NFL’s top running match (183 YPG) and so are 6-2 ATS when they outrush their competitions this year.

Kansas City really controlling distinct scrimmage down the stretch, averaging over 4.5 metres per carry as Larry Johnson took over for the injured Priest Holmes four weeks past. At exactly the exact same period, Chiefs 5th ranked rushing defense hasn’t allowed a lot more than 78 yards for three consecutive games.

Black and silver Bleeding Red… Oakland fell to a horrific 8-22 ATS vs. conference foes after latest 33-21 home loss to Miami. Do not expect things to improve this week in San Diego (-10.5). Chargers are a polar contrary 13-5 ATS vs. the AFC going back to last season and also a bookie breaking 20-6 ATS overall after fortunate 23-17 OT triumph over Washington as a 3-point highway favorite. Can we say that Raiders will also be a horrific 3-13 ATS their last sixteen divisional games?

For the 2nd straight week, Seattle escaped with a success. You might recall a week when the hapless 49ers were within a two point conversion at the end of regulation of knotting the match against Seattle. Within their latest setup, SEA outgained 490-355 from Giants but took advantage of a whopping 17 newyork penalties and three missed field goals to edge the G Men 24-21 in overtime. Obviously, we all worry about is green around here and sea birds failed to pay either contest. On-deck is Philadelphia–who despite all of their battles this year–continues to be 9-2 ATS at home vs. the NFC at home going back to last season, including 2-1 ATS this season after hottest success over Green Bay in the City of Brotherly Hate.

That said, they have been placing an extremely stiff number (7 points) this week at home against Green Bay awarded the Bears fights on offense. In past five wins, the CHI 24th graded scoring unit has set up just 13, 13, 17, 20, 1 9, and 10 points, respectively. And when you further consider that complete is put at just 30 points in this sport and that seven of Packers eight losses have come by 2, 1, 2 3, 7, 3, 5 and 3 points, respectively, this number appears fairly high
