Football Picks: The Mush's Week 11 NFL Fades


The Mush is feeling good after his perfect 5-0 week.

Well, The Mush is in high spirits after evening his record on the season with a blistering 5-0 week. He's now 23-23 for the year and a strong 7-3 with his best bets. I have a feeling he's in for a tough week but we'll see. Here are The Mush's picks in the NFL for Week 11:

Colts -9 (Best Bet)
The Mush has been riding the Colts for the past few weeks and that trend will continue on Sunday. Mush thinks the Texans have packed it in and that Indy is finally playing like we all expected they would before the season. "Did you see the Texans last week with that stiff quarterback? That guy is terrible and the last time he faced the Colts he blew the game all by himself. Colts roll." The money is pretty split on this game at the moments, with 53 percent of the people siding with Mush.

Fade The Mush: Texans +9

Cowboys -1
No doubt about this one. I would have killed myself if Mush wasn't on his favorite team this week. Obviously Mush and I strongly disagree on what direction the Cowboys are headed. The Redskins will probably be on my card this week but Mush is backing the Boys. "The Cowboys are going to go on a run now that Romo is back. This will be a different team on Sunday. You'll see." Apparently Romo is going to be coaching and playing defense in Mush's cockeyed world.

Fade The Mush: Redskins +1

Eagles -9
The Eagles have to take to the road after a tough defeat last week against the Giants. This could be a letdown spot for Philly but Mush isn't buying that theory. "How are the Bengals going to score? The Eagles will blitz that high school quarterback all day long. This one is easy money fellas." Not surprisingly, close to 80 percent of the bets are coming in on the Eagles.

Fade The Mush: Bengals +9

Dolphins -10
It's hard to argue with Mush's "Fade the Raiders" philosophy seeing they are a team in disaray. This week Al Davis took the playcalling duties away from OC Greg Knapp and Mush thinks that's even more reason to bet against Oakland. "Who is going to be calling plays? Al Davis? That guy doesn't even know his own name. Fade the Raiders and win money. It's that simple." Right now 60 percent of the people agree with Mush's theory.

Fade The Mush: Raiders +10

Season Record: 23-23
Best Bets: 7-3

  • Is the economy that bad?  Did Tommy get fired?  It's week 15.

  • I told you The Mush would blow it this week.

  • Cowboys -1

    No doubt about this one. I would have killed myself if Mush wasn't on his favorite team this week. Obviously Mush and I strongly disagree on what direction the Cowboys are headed.

    Fade The Mush: Redskins +1

    I like your line about Romo playing defense & coaching

  • Seems to me the Mush isn't "George," so much as "Jerry," Mr. Even Steven. He just breaks even.

    Who'll be the Elaine?

  • The Texans always give the Colts a game it seems Tommy.  Not sold on Oakland covering 10 against USC right now....but pro football seems to me after 17 years of capping to be allot more "favorite" freindly as the season rolls along in the second half...it just seems the btter teams start winning and seperating from the pack alittle....food for thought, but who could argue last weeks stellar record from you!  

  • Great stuff, Tommy!

  • Cowboys are a lock Tommy LOL...

    IRVING, Texas - Jerry Jones "absolutely" believes the Dallas Cowboys will make the playoffs, would welcome Adam "Pacman" Jones back to the team if he's reinstated and isn't considering a coaching change.

  • hey tommy i think the dolphins are - 10 not + 10 lol

  • Thanks Tommy, appreciate it. Have a great weekend with the plays buddy.

  • Great stuff as usual Tommy - love the pic LOL

  • I heard the game thing GF. Number I got was about 80 percent. You are right, they have to win this game. If they don't, the bottom will fall out. I have to look at this game more. You know I hate playing Sunday night games, so I may pass on this one.

  • Tommy- I am actually leaning Dallas as well here.....Portis out and Dallas just has to get this game or they are done......You have any inside info on just how healthy Romo is??? I've read and heard a few things that they are rushing him back a bit here, vuz of how hideous Brad Johnson has been.
