Johnny G’s Christmas Day Pick (NFL and NBA)

December 25th, 2009 by Johnny G | 35 Comments | Filed in Football, General

Ho Ho Ho!

I would like to start off by wishing everyone and their families a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year. Nothing better than a little Christmas Day football but don’t forget to tune into the Lakers Cavs game while you are killing time till 7:30. Now down to business. After a brutal Sunday my record still stands at a respectable 13-8 overall and I fully intend to right the ship this Christmas Day. Enjoy the pick and the game. I have not been giving out NBA picks due to the overall number of NFL games to choose from but with only one game going tonight at 7:30, my basketball pick of the day will be the Lakers minus the number over the Cavs.

San Diego Chargers (+3) over Tennessee Titans/ 7:35 pm Friday

The Chargers enter this game having won 9 games in a row and they look to push their streak to double digits tonight in Tennessee. This will be a gruesome matchup between two very physical football teams that can move the ball on the ground and through the air. Bolts’ QB Philip Rivers is playing the best football of his career and the combination of Darren Sproles and Ladainian Tomlinson are getting it done on the ground. With a receiving group of Antonio Gates, Vincent Jackson, Malcom Floyd, and Legedu Naanee they are almost impossible to match up against.

On the other hand you have a Titans team who started off the season 0-6 and has since rebounded dramatically to now stand at 7-7. That’s a record of 7-1 since Jeff Fisher gave the reigns over to Vince Young. The Titans also have some guy named Chris Johnson, I don’t know if you’ve heard of him but he is challenging Eric Dickerson’s single season rushing record. He needs 270 yards in the final 2 games to break the record and he is currently running like a man possessed. Any defense will have their hands full trying to stop him on any given week.
