image0021Thanksgiving weekend, a football man’s dream. Maybe the holiday weekend will be good to the sure-fire picks, which got back to its losing ways last week – going 3-4-1. The season total is now (cue the laughtrack) 35-59-1. And, heeeeere come the losers!

Tennessee (-11) at Detroit, 12:30 p.m. Thursday
The poor Lions host a very angry Titans team coming off their first loss of the season. Get the feast ready while this one’s going on, unless you’re into pain and suffering. Titans -11.

Seattle at Dallas (O/U 46.5), 4:15 p.m. Thursday
The Cowboys are going to hang at least 30 on the Seahawks and Hasselbeck will get the Seahawks offense back on track. Too bad it’s already Week 13. Over 46.5.

New Orleans at Tampa Bay (-3.5), 1 p.m. Sunday
How about some love for the Bucs – the 8-3 team nobody’s talking about. In the NFC South, it’s all about home-field advantage. And that bizarre pirate ship at Raymond James Stadium is enough to make any visitor think they may have accidentally stumbled into a creepy themepark. Bucs -3.5.

Baltimore (-7) at Cincinnati, 1 p.m. Sunday
The Ravens bounced back with a big win over the Eagles. With a wild-card berth hanging in the balance, they’ll take care of the Bungles. Ravens -7.

San Francisco at Buffalo (-7), 1 p.m. Sunday
At home, in the cold, clinging to playoff life … the Bills make a stand and improve to 7-5. Bills -7.

Atlanta at San Diego (-4.5), 4:05 p.m. Sunday
Time to bury the Chargers right? Not so fast. The Broncos are still within striking distance and the Chargers have a late run in them. Chargers -4.5.

Denver at NY Jets (-8), 4:15 p.m. Sunday
If the Broncos can’t compete with the Raiders at home, why would they be able to play with the Jets in New York? Although, rational thinking is what has doomed the sure-fire picks so far. Jets -8.

Chicago at Minnesota (-3.5), 8:15 p.m. Sunday
If anyone looks you in the face and tells you they have this one figured out, they’re lying. Flip a coin. Tails it is. Vikings -3.5
