Big sports night, what with the Heat playing the Cavs (some ultimate legacy points on the line here), and a Thursday Night Football game that may not be close, but should feature some offense. And my favorite night of comedic television (Community, 30 Rock, Always Sunny, The League). So the remote will be HOT tonight.
Anyway, here's the pick for tonight.
Houston at Philadelphia (-8)
Philadelphia hit their first road block in their recent hot streak, as a red zone interception by Michael Vick turned the tide of the game. Yet, the Eagles managed to stay in the game until the end, and had a chance to win if they had recovered an onside kick. Houston took care of a shambling Titans team led by Rusty Smith, so, it wasn't quite the most impressive win. Houston has an atrocious pass defense that any decent quarterback should be able to light up, and I fully expect Michael Vick to light them up. The Eagles defense isn't amazing, but I think they can bottle up some of the offense. These Thursday Night games, coming on short rest, are always close games, so I think Houston can cover the spread while Philadelphia wins.
Also... watch the MJ-LeBron commercial mashup on youtube. It says everything I've tried to say.
