Rob Ford’s NFL picks for Week 14

Embattled Toronto mayor Rob Ford talks to 106.7 The Fan's "Sports Junkies" show about allegations that he tried to buy a video that appeared to show him smoking crack cocaine, childhood memories of the Redskins and the controversy over the team's mascot. (The Sports Junkies on 106.7 The Fan)

Toronto mayor Rod Ford is a “football fanatic,” and so despite the recent controversy surrounding him, he was incredibly eager to grant an NFL-focused interview with the Junkies Thursday morning on 106.7 The Fan. Click here for highlights from the interview. Below are Ford’s picks, in a form that’s easy to print and take straight to the sports book.

Chiefs (-3.5) at Redskins
Redskins.  “Washington’s tough at home.”

Colts at Bengals (-5.5)
Colts. “That’s gonna be too close, I think it’s gonna be a field goal game…Cincinnati’s good at home, but you know what? I’ll take Indy for sure.”

Seahawks at 49ers (-2.5)
49ers. “[Seattle] played Monday night, it’s gonna be a short week for them. I’ll take San Fran at home.”

Lions at Eagles (-2.5)
Eagles. “Philly’s red-hot at home, Detroit usually plays good at home, but on the road, I don’t see it.”

Titans at Broncos (-12.5)
Titans. “Denver’s a good team and they’re good at home. I just think 12 is too much.”

Cowboys at Bears (pick ’em)
Bears. “It’s cold in Chicago, it’s hard to play outside when you’re a dome team, I find.”

Texans (-3.5) at Jaguars

Raiders at Jets (-2.5)
Jets. “The Jets oughta come back big at home.”

Bills at Buccaneers (-2-5)
Bills. “Buffalo was just up in Toronto last week, so they didn’t look too bad, they lost a squeaker to Atlanta.”

Giants at Chargers (-3.5)

Rams at Cardinals (-6)

Vikings at Ravens (-7.5)

Browns at Patriots (-11.5)

Panthers at Saints (-4.5)

Dolphins at Steelers (-3.5)

Falcons at Packers (pick ’em)

Also, Ford said he bets on football all the time with Pro-Line (it is legal in Canada). And he does not like when women win the city hall football pool because they pick by “who’s the cutest guy.” Full interview is here.
