Bilicki’s Super Bowl LII pick

by Dan Bilicki In: Football, Picks

We’re finally here at the end of another NFL season in what felt like no time at all.
It feels like just yesterday that the Pats were getting lit up by Andy Reid’s Chiefs on the opening Thursday nighter, but that was amazingly five months ago.
Now, we’re at the Super Bowl and the Pats are looking [...]

FREE KICKS: Inconsistency is the constant at Arsenal, Liverpool

by Dan Bilicki In: Soccer

One thing is for certain when you’re a supporter of either Arsenal or Liverpool: You never know what you’re going to get.
Yes, the only certainty with these two squads is uncertainty.
In one week’s time, the Reds went from ending league-leading Manchester City’s season-long unbeaten run to losing to the team at the bottom of the [...]

NFL Conference Championship picks

by Dan Bilicki In: Football, Picks

The lines are from Vegas and the home teams are in CAPs.
Jacksonville +9 over NEW ENGLAND
The Jaguars offence isn’t as good as it looked last week, but it isn’t as bad as it was against the Bills. New England’s defence has improved after a terrible start to the season, but has some holes in it. [...]

FREE KICKS: Reds conquer the Invincibles

by Dan Bilicki In: Soccer

Manchester City’s record undefeated run came to an end after one of the most exciting games of the season.
Liverpool and City put on quite the show in their 4-3 thriller. With the Reds taking an early lead, City countering, Liverpool scoring three goals in eight minutes and the league league-leader potting two late scores to [...]

NFL Divisional Round playoff picks

by Dan Bilicki In: Football, Picks

The lines are from Vegas and the home teams in CAPs.
Atlanta -3 over PHILADELPHIA
Last week, the Falcons capitalized on a lot of errors and played one of their best games of the season, looking every bit like the team that went to the Super Bowl last year. With Nick Foles at QB for the otherwise [...]

NFL wild-card round picks

by Dan Bilicki In: Football, Picks

The lines are from Vegas and the home teams in CAPs.
KANSAS CITY -8 over Tennessee
The Chiefs are a team with speed and some weapons on offence that can break a game open. The Titans have a dynamic, young quarterback that is being stifled by an uninventive style which bogs down the game. Quite simply, the [...]

The Premier League top XI of 2017

by Dan Bilicki In: Soccer

It can be a bit tricky to come up with a list or squad like this because in the calendar year of 2017, you have to account for two different seasons.
Very few players from below the top teams made the list, but that’s the thing about being a top team: Your players are generally better [...]

NFL Week 17 picks

by Dan Bilicki In: Football, Picks

The lines are from Vegas and the home teams in CAPs.
PITTSBURGH -11 over Cleveland
You always think the Browns are going to get the back-door cover, but it never comes. This team fully deserves to go down in history as one of the NFL’s worst. The Steelers will likely rest their starters once this is out [...]

NFL Week 16 picks

by Dan Bilicki In: Football, Picks

The lines are from Vegas and the home teams in CAPs.
Indianapolis +14 over BALTIMORE
As bad as the Colts may be, the Ravens shouldn’t be giving two touchdowns. And if you think anybody is giving up free time on Saturday to watch this one, you’re insane.
Minnesota -9 over GREEN BAY
Aaron Rodgers tried to get the Packers [...]

NFL Week 15 picks

by Dan Bilicki In: Football, Picks

The lines are from Vegas and the home teams in CAPs.
INDIANAPOLIS +2.5 over Denver
The Broncos defence looks like it’s finally playing up to the standard we expected coming into the season, but it’s only doing so against awful teams like the Jets and Colts.
Chicago +5.5 over DETROIT
The Lions are about as one-dimensional as you can [...]
