John Fredericks NFL Picks Week 16: Bills, Ravens on the Ropes

Merry Christmas! In the infamous words of Gordon Gecco, “Money never sleeps!” Plus we have two Christmas Day games to bet on! Screw the CCP loving lib-tards who run the NBA! We have NFL football on Christmas! I had a topsy-turvey roller-coaster week 15: Red hot in early games, smoked like a cheap Saturday night cigar on late games, then came roaring back with the snake eyes deuce on Tuesday. Overall I went 8-6 ATS, bringing my season record to 76-55-2 ATS. That’s 22 games over .500. My season pre-playoff goal is 25 games over .500. I am within striking distance this week.

John Fredericks Commentary: Rams, Cowboys Look to Cement Their Status in NFL Week 9

Well, we knew there would be one week where I took the proverbial pipe. Last week was it, when I posted an abysmal 4-7-1 record, getting blown out of several games. Like my late dad Sam always said: “Better to be blown out by halftime than lose in the last second. The money lost is the same, but at least you saved time.”  

He was a die-hard New York Jets fan, so we know he got blown out a lot. My boys are off this week, as my son Jack’s girlfriend Kristi is dealing with some health issues and they are all still recovering from the Astros World Series implosion. So I’ll go it alone. This is redemption week, I feel a 9-3 coming on. My total record for the season ATS is still a stellar 54-32-2, a full 22 games over .500. I’ll put that up against any of the Vegas wise guys that charge you a fee for football picks. Mine are free! Maybe I have a new career in the making? Oh, I also predicted the Youngkin win in Virginia and plus eight House seats. So I nailed that one, too.

John Fredericks NFL Picks Week 8: Browns, Chiefs Desperate for Wins as Playoff Hopes Dim

I have been on fire the last three weeks. I went 7-4-1 last week, bringing my season record ATS to 50-25-1. That’s 25 games over .500 through seven weeks. I’d put that up against anybody in Vegas. But you are only as good as your last selection. In the famous words of Big Tuna, Bill Parcells: “You are as good as your record says you are.”

This week features a few must win games: Kansas City has to get it done against a resurgent New York Giants, or they risk missing the playoffs. The ‘Niners debacle last Sunday night at home puts them at risk this week against the Bears to start making January vacation plans. And is Joey Burrow the new sheriff in town? If they lose to the lowly Jets, it’s just the same old Bungles.

Commentary: McAuliffe’s War on Parents

Former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe thought his run at a second non-consecutive term for Virginia’s executive mansion would be a cake-walk. It would no doubt set him up for a serious run for president in 2024 or 2028. And why not? Virginia Democrats have won 14 statewide races in a row dating back to 2012 by ever increasing margins. VA DEMS won a House of Delegates majority in 2019, just three years after Republicans commanded a super-majority. They also captured the state senate in 2019. 

Republicans nominated an unknown business executive with no political experience, Glenn Youngkin for governor after a very contentious caucus selection process. McAuliffe meanwhile eviscerated several up and coming African-American candidates in a blow-out primary win. 

With all the money he could ever spend in a blue state that now rivals California, what could go wrong?

John Fredericks NFL Picks: Titans Have to Prove They Are Not a Farce; Chiefs Against the Ropes

If you bet NFL football week in and week out, you understand why Vegas has billion-dollar hotels on the Strip. It’s a grind and the book always wins. So far this season we are 25-22 ATS, going 6-6 last week. Every week into the season gets a little easier, as teams are settling in. We have some surprises, and a lot of close games. Week five will be no different. I’m three games over .500 going into week five, and I’m looking for that break out week to blow away the field. This is it. I’ll go up big. I might run the table!

John Fredericks Commentary: NFL Picks Week 1 – Are the Bills Really That Good?

Finally, week one of the NFL season is here! A lot of you are thinking: “I’m not watching the NFL, they are woke, they kneel during the National Anthem, they play two anthems, etc., etc.”

Seriously folks, who gives a rip about the NFL and their Twinkie-like woke executives. Pro football is about us: the fans—and the players. Most NFL fans are Trump voters, and after a season of phony lockdowns, they’ll be coming out in record numbers to tailgate, party, root for their teams and most of all – have fun. It’s called living again. And try locking them down – or requiring VAX papers at the gate for entry. See what happens. Make my day!

So, it’s opening week- stop whining and start living!

John Fredericks Commentary: Analysis and Predictions for the GOP for Saturday’s Nominating Convention

American flag flying above a large crowd.

On Saturday, May 8, up to 53,000 Virginia Republicans who pre-registered as delegates will nominate candidates for state-wide offices in November, including governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general.

It’s been a long time coming.

The nominating process for Republicans, an unassembled convention with about 40 voting locations across the Commonwealth – open for voting from 9:00 AM-4:00 PM – is a convoluted and confusing affair that took months to negotiate and consummate after numerous marathon and agonizing Zoom calls by the Party’s State Central Committee.

John Fredericks Commentary: The Great RPV Hostage Caper

Susan Swecker, Chairwoman of the Democratic Party of Virginia is having the time of her life.

She cannot wait until Saturday’s Republican Party of Virginia’s weekly State Central  Committee clown car Zoom show to hit the Facebook live pages. In fact, rumor has it the VA Dems actually plan watch parties around it, with champagne and locally brewed beer to boot! They say the comments section is the best comedy show since Seinfeld.

For 10 years, I have railed against the folly of Virginia Republicans holding conventions over primaries to nominate state-wide candidates. In fact, I’ve maintained that conventions have ripped the heart and soul out of the Party, relegating it to the New York Jets style dumpster fire it is today. The RPV is broke, decrepit and rudderless.

Trump Campaign Legal Team Digs In

Beginning today, the Trump Campaign will start prosecuting its case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated. The Associated Press, CNN and FOX don’t pick U.S. Presidents. The voters do. Legitimate ones. Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media.

The bottom-line is that this election is far from over.
