The Week 2 NFL and College Football Picks Card from the Gambling Chalk Talk Podcast Guys.
Guaranteed 4 NFL Picks from Coach
The picks this week are brought to you by Sonny from the Bronx Tale, if they are losing picks then that means Mush was in a ride along with Sonny. We all have that friend or in my case friends when they pick a game and you also have that same side you know you are in trouble. I was so fond of Eddie Mush (Montanaro) that he became an alias of one of my characters in the Ali Armeni Series. A big suggestion to all you gamblers out there if you have an Eddie Mush in your life, use it to your advantage it is a gift that will keep on giving. The key is go to him or her for advice and then just bet big in the opposite direction.
Calogero should have followed Sonny’s lead and avoided the Kryptonite disappointment.
Panthers -13.5 over 49ers – Cruel schedule late Monday night game, travel across country for a 1:00 game. Rams stink, still a great win and only one for the year for Niners. Panthers motivated after opening day loss. Could be a pounding like the Mortcyle Gang took at the bar from Sonny’s Crew. Chip Kelly “Now youse can’t leave!”
Texans -2.5 over Chiefs – Chiefs defense gave up a bunch of points. to Chargers with no o-line, The Texans offense with Lamar Miller, Osweiler who is familiar with Chiefs from Bronco days and Deandre Hopkins will put up a bunch of points. The Texans defense is top notch talent especially up front that can halt that chiefs running game. Don’t be teased by the Chiefs and Andy Reid there like that kid that owed Calogero 20 bucks consider yourself “Getting off cheap by getting them out of your life.”
Seahawks -6.5 over Rams – Home opener at Rams. They might not score again in this game. Seahags might get offense healthy in this one. This line has moved quite a bit since Wednesday when we recorded the podcast, from 3.5 to 6.5. Hope you got that great number early like I did and now I wonder if I should try to middle the pick with a Rams play. Greed is a bad thing so I will just stick with my Seahags pick this will be a beat down just like the one Sonny gave that Biker “Remember me I did this to you.” The Rams might have PTSD when they go to Seattle after this one.
Jaguars +3 over Chargers – Jags acquired a lot of talent and hung tough with NFC favorite Packers. Chargers BAD loss vs. Chief and they have the threat of leaving San Diego for LA imminent. Usually opposing fans travel and flood charger home games that won’t happen as there are not many Jag fans. I am taking the Jags in a long cross country trip. There trip will be just as nice as the trip Calogero took across town for that date with Jane. The Jags better open the door “The door test is what counts.”

Dan 2-3 (2-3)
College Picks from Coach
Arkansas State Red Wolves +9 over Utah State Aggies – Arkansas State has had 5 straight winning seasons, Utah not much returning on defense. The Red Wolves are a running team, meaning less possessions, could be a close game. Take the 9 points.
Miami Hurricanes -3.5 over Appalachian State Mountaineers – Miami has all the pieces for a great offense, talent and experience. Appalachain State has solid QB and Running game but is green at Wide Receiver position. The Appalachian defense is the strongest part of their game. Miami is the first big conference team to visit the Mountaineers and they atmosphere will be tremendous but Miami is more talented on both sides of the ball and will win by more than a touchdown. Lay the points on the road.
New Mexico State Lobos +5.5 over Rutgers Scarlet Knights – The Lobos usually are just cannon fodder for the big conference schools. This however is Rutgers, with a new coach that wants to run a system that doesn’t fit their current personnel. The run heavy Lobos could control the ball for a good portion of this game that will come down to a field goal.
Washington State Cougars -25 over Idaho Vandals – Mike Leach offense that loves to run up points. Idaho Vandals that team dropping to NCAA 2A also known as the FCS. 40 point win in the making.
Arkansas Razorbacks -31 over Texas State Bobcats – Texas State has a new coach Everett Withers. They switch defensive schemes on an already bad defense from last year. Arkansas is going to put up a lot of points in this one. I wouldn’t worry to much about the Texas State Bobcats putting up garbage points in the 4th quarter to cover, their offense lost their top running back and wide receivers from last year.
