Jordan's NFL Tips
Robert Kelly (Washington Redskins) Over 64.5 Rushing Yards @ 5-6 @– 12 points
Ty Montgomery is a converted RB and shredded the Chicago Bears last week. The Bears have given up 100 yards and a TD to running backs in six straight weeks. Zub zero temperatures are expected again and I expect Washington to be the more motivated as they need a win to keep playoff hopes alive. Rob Kelly only saw 9 carries for 8 yards against a Panthers side who led most of the game, but did have 47 receiving yards. This week he should get more carries and his yardage is low considering star Tight End Jordan Reed is still nursing a shoulder injury and hasn’t practised yet this week.
Ty Montgomery (Green Bay Packers) Over 81.5 Rush and Receiving Yards @ 5-6 @– 3 points
The Vikings were blown out last week at home by the Colts and surprisingly, most of the damage was done on the ground bu Gore and Turbin. The Vikings aren’t out of playoff contention yet, but need to win in Lambeau. AP is back but their o-line is a mess so the run game will be tough get going against a defense that has stopped the run well in their recent win streak. However passing defense is our main weakness but the cold weather won’t help Bradford, who has played in Green Bay before, but not in the Frozen Taundra.
Cameron Brate (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) Over 51.5 Receiving Yards @ 5-6 @– 3 points
A big game in the NFC South see’s Tampa head to New Orleans. Tampa are still in with a shout of the playoffs, while New Orleans will be looking to try and even out their 6-8 record over the next two weeks. Drew Brees threw like he was at home last weekend in Arizona and will hard to beat at home, but yielding 41 points and winning isn’t the best strategy. Mike Evans has been held fairly quiet over the past couple of weeks (which includes a game against the Saints in Tampa) but they do have another threat at receiver in Tight End Cameron Brate. Brate has recorded 47+ receiving yards in the last 4 weeks and should get enough looks in the Superdome.
