I hope you all had a safe and enjoyable New Year's holiday. Let's get to the "expert" picks for Sunday's game:
|Chris Mortensen - Mia||Adam Schefter - Pit||Ron Jaworksi - Mia|
|Cris Carter - Pit||Tom Jackson - Pit||Peter King - Pit|
|PFT - Mia||Sporting News - Pit||Jason Cole - Pit|
|Harmon Forecast - Mia||Pete Prisco - Pit||Clark Judge - Mia|
I thought we'd see far fewer picks in favor of the Dolphins. But it seems like, of nothing else, the media at least respects this Dolphins team. That's nice for a change.
The way I see it, this game is going to be a shoot-out. I don't think either team will run the ball effectively well, meaning Chad Henne will have to out-gun Ben Roethlisberger. Will he do it? It sure won't be easy.
In the end, I see a tight, high-scoring game. 31-28 Dolphins.
Week 17 Locks
Jaguars +1.5 over Browns - With Jacksonville clinging to slim playoff hopes, the Jaguars get the job done behind MJD.
Titans -4.5 over Seahawks - Seattle has packed up already for the offseason and I expect to see a big game out of Chris Johnson, as he breaks 2,000 yards rushing.
Ravens -10.5 over Raiders - Baltimore is playing for their playoff lives and the Raiders, while playing better of late, just won't be able to slow Ray Rice and the Ravens.
Last Week: 3-1
