Mike Donnelly of TOJ breaks down the week 10 NFL gambling lines and makes his picks
As this miserable Jets season spirals further and further into the depths of hell, I feel like we all need something to grasp on to and look forward to each and every Sunday. I mean, there’s only so much “Should we draft Jameis or Mariota?!” talk that a Jets fan can take, right? Well, I have a better idea: lets do some NFL Gambling! If you’re reading this and are going to be throwing some money down on games this weekend I’d love to hear your thoughts on my picks and who you’re throwing down on when the ball kicks off on Sunday as well. Last week I hit 4 out of 5 best bets and I think I have a good read on this week’s games, so let’s get into it… Continue reading “TOJ NFL Week 10 NFL Gambling Advice and Picks”
Well, it’s come to this, huh? I guess none of us should be surprised with the fickle and downright crappy nature of most New York Jets fans that a campaign has sprouted up to raise $10,000 (that’s American dollars too) so that they could put up a Fire John Idzik billboard. That’s right, 10 grand for… a John Idzik billboard that nobody will give a crap about. And the insane part is that some people out there are actually donating their money to this! Well, before you open up your wallet and type in your credit card number on their little website to give them your money, do me a favor and read this first.

Connor Rogers goes inside the film room to break down the Jets defense vs. the Patriots in a week 7 Thursday night match up.
In a Thursday night match up that came down to the final seconds, the Jets lost a tight one once again. On the bright side, outside of a few brain lapses, the defense seems to be finding consistency. What has Rex Ryan changed since the Jets were blown out in San Diego a few weeks back? Let’s take a look… Continue reading “New York Jets – Inside the Film Room: Get Off the Field Edition”
Well, after a hot start to the season, my #FadeFlorio strategy has shifted to #FadeDonnelly and that’s just no fun at all. I mean, if I can’t pick games better than freaking Mike Florio then I might as well pack up shop and get out of here. For the time being, I’m still ahead on the season, despite going a Florio-ian 4-11 last week against the spread including losing all 5 of my “best bets”. But for the first time all year, my record has dipped below .500 and I’m 1-9 on my last 10 “best bets” which has not only made me sad, but made me a good deal lighter in the wallet. Damn it.

Mike Donnelly of TOJ gives his NFL Gambling advice for week 6 and makes picks.
After Mike Florio had his best week of the season in Week 5, I thought about switching it up and finding a different horrible FOOTBALL GUY to fade for this week. The #FadeFlorio campaign hit a temporary snag as Mr. PFT went a very healthy 8-6-1 against the spread, while I stumbled with a 7-7-1 record and an atrocious 1-4 with my Best Bets. To make matters even worse, I lost my first teaser of the season, which sucked.

Mike Donnelly of TOJ gives his NFL Gambling advice and picks for week 5
Well, somehow October and week 5 of the NFL season have arrived. It seems like just yesterday we were watching NFL preseason games complaining about how terrible the games were, and Jets fans were arguing about what kind of role Daryl Richardson would have on the offense. Ahh, sweet memories. On the bright side, the NFL gambling season is going swimmingly here in this space, and the #FadeFlorio campaign is a force of nature that cannot be stopped. After miraculously putting together a winning week in week 3, Mr. PFT fell back onto his face en route to a 5-7-1 week, which puts his record for the season at 23-37-1 against the spread.

Mike Donnelly of TOJ breaks down the week 4 NFL gambling lines and makes his picks.
Week 4 of the NFL season has arrived (Where have the past 3 weeks gone?!) and we are at the point of the season where we separate the men from the boys when it comes to NFL gambling. Now is the point where Vegas starts putting out extra sharp lines now that they have a feel for the teams and they start to unleash wild traps and tricks to trip up Joe Public. Well, this year I refuse to be tricked. Not only do I have the power of #FadeFlorio behind me, but I’m feeling pretty confident that I can sniff out these traps and tricks. There are a few games this week that I absolutely love, and it’s time to unload some of our winnings from the first three weeks on some big boy bets. Lets dive in! Continue reading “TOJ Week 4 NFL Gambling Advice and Picks”
The Jets lost a thriller to the Bears on Monday night, but after three weeks they now have the top rush defense and second ranked overall defense in the NFL. Who stood out? What was the underrated highlight of the night? And of course, time to hand out awards… Continue reading “New York Jets – Reviewing the Defense – Week 3”
Don’t look now, but we’re off to a hell of a start here picking games and winning bets here in this space. Of course, that would normally mean I’m due for a huge letdown and a 2-14 week is on deck, but I think this year is different. This year I have my ace in the hole. This year I have Mike Florio of PFT on my side!. As you may remember, for the first two weeks of the season I unveiled my #FadeFlorio campaign, and the very worst of all the terrible NFL writers in the world has not let me down en route to a 9-23 start to the season against the spread. I’m sitting pretty at a respectable 18-14 including 8-2 in my best bets, but it’s getting to the point we should all just blindly fade Florio and collect our winnings. Let’s dive into week 3 and get started. Continue reading “TOJ Week 3 NFL Gambling Advice and Picks”
Last week as you may remember, I unveiled my plan to pick one absolutely horrible NFL writer each week and post their picks here in this space up against my picks. For week 1, I went with the guy who may very well know the least about football out of them all, PFT honcho, Mike Florio.
I was going to switch it up and use another bozo like Pete Prisco or something for week 2, but after Florio went a whopping 5-11 against the spread last week, I’ve decided to ride him again this week. I made all of my picks that I felt most strongly about on my own, but when in doubt, I’m gonna #FadeFlorio. That has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Let’s get started!
