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.Read More
John Fredericks NFL Picks Week 15: Patriots Look to Remain Legitimate Contenders

No time for pretenders, only the contenders prevail starting week 15.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
