Legendary NFL handicapper Hammerin' Hank Goldberg enjoyed a 17-year ESPN run in which he had only two losing seasons. Last year he competed against 10 top handicappers in the Las Vegas Review-Journal's NFL Challenge and beat them all, finishing 50-29-6 in against the spread picks.
Now Hammer is releasing his strongest NFL plays directly to SportsLine members.
Last week, Hammer told his followers to back New Orleans in a pick'-em game at Minnesota, noting the Saints had covered 17 of their previous 22 road games and saying he expected them to extract revenge for their playoff loss to the Vikings last year. The result? New Orleans cruised to a 30-20 win.
For Week 9, Hammer is getting down hard on three NFL picks. If you parlay them, you'd be looking at a 6-1 payout. We can tell you Hammer is riding the Panthers as six-point home favorites over Tampa Bay. Carolina is unbeaten at home, covering three of its four wins at Bank of America Stadium.
"Tampa's defense is horrible, giving up an NFL-high 33.3 points per game, and I don't trust Fitzmagic to do his thing against Carolina's defense," Hammer told SportsLine. "They've got nine interceptions (8th, NFL)."
Hammer also is backing an under-the-radar team that oddsmakers keep disrespecting. The line on that game is wrong, Goldberg says, so it's a must-play for any NFL parlay. You absolutely need to see it before locking in any picks this week.
