Pop’s Picks Week 3: Watermelon kicking, new trend?

I went 12-4 in my straight-up picks and 2-1 against the spread last week.

The number of serious injuries is very disappointing and unfortunate for the players involved. I wish them all speedy and healthy recovery.
I predicted the Raiders would upset the Saints. The Falcons keep on inventing ways to lose; the Cowboys brought watermelon, came back, and took the game away from the Falcons. Justin Hebert made a strong start almost won his first game; he makes San Diego a pretty good team.

Jaguars are a lot strong than many football analysts thought they would be. They will defeat the Dolphins tonite. The Chiefs are a great team but won’t go undefeated. Ravens will win on Monday night. Look for Justin Hebert to lead his team to victory.

Have a great football weekend!!!


At Jaguars3DolphinsJaguars came close and almost beat the Titans. Dolphins battled Bills and lost. Who will win this battle of the bearded Quarterbacks?  Jaguars win.
At Falcons3Bears It looked like the Falcons were playing spin the bottle and lost. The Bears just hung on to beat Giants. This week the Falcons will rebound.
At Bills2RamsThe Rams are off to a great start. I’m going with the Bills.
At Browns7RedskinsThe Browns’ defence looks very strong. Can they put back to back wins…I think they can.  Redskins won’t be able to move the ball.
Titans2.5At VikingsAre the Vikings going to win this year? Probably, but not this week.
At Patriots5.5RaidersWhat Raiders nation would give to win this one! Two upsets in a row not likely. Raiders come back to earth and lose to the Patriots.
49ers4@GiantsBoth teams suffered injuries to their top players. 49ers are more banged up. Giants will give Coach Judge his first victory.
@Eagles5BengalsThe Eagles are not right… they are going to lose again.
@Steelers4TexansTexans have had a tough schedule facing the two best teams and losing. Their luck does not improve facing a Steelers team with a rejuvenated Big Ben.
@Colts10.5JetsMaybe the Jets will keep it close, but they won’t win.
@Chargers6.5PanthersJustin Hebert almost won his first start. Chargers will win.

Bucs6@BroncosThe aging Brady wins again.
@Cardinals5.5LionsLast year these teams tied. This year Arizona wins big.
@Seahawks5CowboysThe Cowboys won the spin the watermelon game last week. The Seahawks won’t be as collaborative. Seahawks win.

At Saints3.5PackersThe Saints are coming out of a Monday night game where they showed glaring weaknesses that the Packers will exploit.
@Ravens3.5At ChiefsAfter almost losing to the Chargers  the Super-bowl winning Chiefs are dogs. Ravens win this one.
