For the first time this season, Ezzus’s golden ticket was actually gold. I was losing faith in myself and my NFL picks. Could I actually produce a golden ticket?
I turned into the Aldi brand Pandemic P. Everyone was losing faith in me. But now, I’m back. No longer are the days of Ezzus’s bronze ticket NFL picks. From here on out, my tickets will always be golden Ponyboy.
I really like the board at Bovada this week. Another golden ticket is on the horizon.
Chicago Bears (+1) vs Carolina Panthers
I love this Bears team. The defense will always keep them in games and Big Dick Nick will do just enough to win games.
Foles hasn’t been able to set the world on fire with his play, but he has played the top two defenses in the Colts and Bucs. Now, Foles gets the Panthers defense that ranks 15th in the league. I’d expect Foles to light it up this week giving the Bears another victory.
I understand the Panthers have been playing well, but I think the Bears defense is too good. They’ll keep Teddy Bridgewater and Mike Davis contained.
Los Angeles Rams (-3.5) vs San Francisco 49ers
Last week, Jimmy G did not look like himself against the Dolphins. He played so bad that Kyle Shanahan benched him. Now he has to go up against the 4th ranked defense.
I don’t see him doing any better. He was so horrible against the 18th ranked defense last week. I can’t imagine he does any better this week.
Also, I love this Rams offense. Sean McVay has turned around this offense in one offseason. The Rams are currently the 4th best offense and look like the Rams from a few years ago.
They should beat this already banged up team by more than one touchdown. After this game is done, First Take will be ripping Jimmy G apart.
Green Bay Packers (-1) vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Aaron Rodgers is on a mission this year. The Packers are undefeated and it’s all because of Rodgers. Drafting Jordan Love so early seems like a bad decision looking back at it. This week, Rodgers has the challenge of going against the league’s second-best defense and the “washed” king will still be undefeated.
The Bucs have Tom Brady, but he hasn’t looked like the same old Brady. He’s dealing with injuries to both Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, a major blow if one of them can’t play. This game will come down to the wire. But, the Packers ultimately win.
After last week’s major victory, I’m predicting yet another 3-0 week. You should actually start making money off my amazing picks. If you do decide to throw 20 on these golden ticket NFL picks, you’ll win around $189.
