Welcome to GUY CODE, the official blog of MTV2's "Guy Code" series and your online destination for all things dude, including—but not limited to—irreverent commentary on sports, hip-hop and ladies. Stay awhile and flex your manhood.
Philip Rivers is having an amazing year, completing 73.9% of his passes with a QB rating of 111.1. Normally I fade West Coast teams in early games, but the Chargers have shown they can hang on the East Coast, helping them earn a 5-1-1 record ATS. The Redskins haven't been as fortunate; they're only 2-5 ATS and getting banged up on and off the field. Unclear who's taken more hits this year: RG III or team owner Daniel Snyder.
Indianapolis Colts At Houston Texans
The Indianapolis Colts have beaten three of the toughest teams in the NFL with victories over the 49ers, the Seahawks and the Broncos. Houston normally plays Indy tough, but this is a different Texans team this year; they're 1-6 straight up and have only covered one spread. Andrew Luck will be without his favorite target, Reggie Wayne, which means he'll have to do what the Oakland Raiders couldn't. Get their fans to stop playing dress-up? No, figure out how to effectively use Darrius Heyward-Bey.
Golden Tate is the man responsible (along with the replacement refs) for one of the most improbable and controversial "Hail Mary" plays in NFL history. That being said, his greatest catch of all time may be when he hauled in mega babe Elise Pollard. She's a 9.5, and with Sidney Rice out with an ACL, I got Golden Tate going for 16.5 against the Bucs for a total of 26 points.
With teams looking to double A.J. Green, Marvin Jones has stepped up for the Bengals and fantasy owners, averaging 13.6 points per game. Look for Marvin to continue to progress against the Dolphins, as I predict he'll pull in 14.5 fantasy points. Keeping up with the Joneses gets a little bit harder when you see Marvin's smokin' hot wife, Jazmyn, whom I'll score a 9.0 for a total of 23.5.
The NBA season starts tomorrow. We're excited. We've spent most of the last week playing "NBA 2K14" and searching the Internet for fantasy basketball insider tips. This weekend, we stumbled upon a cool deal for NBA fans. If you buy a new adidas Stacked jersey at Champs Sports, you get coupon code for 2,000 "NBA 2K14" Virtual Currency points and a coupon for $10 off "NBA 2K14" at GameStop (in case you don't already own it or want to buy it for a Hanukkah gift).
That's a good deal. Especially if you still haven't bought a jersey to wear this season (D-Rose fans -- you know you wanna commemorate his comeback). The Stacked jerseys blend black and camouflage in with the teams' colors. It won't make you blend into the surroundings during a pickup game (we've tried), but it does look fly. And the extra Virtual Currency is nice to have, especially if you're building a monster new My Player in Career Mode.
The NBA is back! As if all those 2K14 and League Pass commercials weren't enough of a reminder, we are here to give you our annual preview of teams. Of course, we can't just tell you how they'll fare. For this year's edition, we decided to pick a classic wrestler that best represents each team. Our decision process consisted of complex equations involving history, potential, personality, a random mix of creative attributes and flipping a coin. Enjoy and be educated by our hard work.
As they continue to tower over the entire league, the Miami Heat have gone from beloved, to despised, to redeemed all within the past four years. As long as Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh are around, there is no reason to think things will change. Read More...

Our pick for Western Conference Champs. Hiring Doc Rivers and keeping the team in tact are the two smartest decisions Clippers management has made, EVER. Fans love this team of real American heroes like CP3, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. They give the networks highlights, but they also rack up the wins. All in all, the Clips might be in store for a legendary season a la Hulk Hogan in 1984. Read More...
A horrific call allowed the Jets to upset the Patriots, as well as the betting public who expected New England to take care of businesses. The blown call has people overlooking how good the Jets have been playing, particularly their defense which is fourth in the league allowing only 302.6 yards per game. Meanwhile the Bengals added to the misery of Detroit sports fans with their last second field goal victory over the Lions. The New York Jets keep it C-L-O-S-E!
Atlanta Falcons At Arizona Cardinals
No team has covered a spread after playing the Seahawks the previous week. Enter the Arizona Cardinals who have looked solid at times this season, but can't overcome the poor QB play of Carson Palmer who has seven consecutive games with an interception. Matt Ryan is simply a better quarterback than Palmer and the Falcons get their first road win this week. Make sure to bet OVER 2.5 times the announcers joke that "this game is for the birds."
From "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" to the morning show that our moms watched for decades, Regis Philbin is a broadcasting legend. Nobody is denying that. However, he might -- just might -- be a Guy Code violator, because he claims to root for the Yankees, the Pirates, the Dodgers and the Red Sox. To determine whether he's guilty of bandwagon-hopping, Damien Lemon and Chris Distefano -- in their finest "Guy Court" lawyer attire -- showed up on Fox Sports 1's "Crowd Goes Wild" to put Regis on trial.
"I'm not even a big sports fan," Damien said after presenting the damning evidence. "But until today I was a huge Regis fan!"
Watch the clip below to find out whether or not the audience voted to convict, and be sure to check out "Guy Court" when it premieres Wednesday, November 6th on MTV2.
GoPro has come up with a great way to advertise its product: Give the camera to complete maniacs and let them do whatever they want with it, 'cause those videos make us want to film ourselves riding a bike out of a helicopter and then landing on a shark. Truth be told, we'd just film ourselves playing touch football with our friends (that should get a lot of views), because there's no way we can compete with these badasses...
1. Mountain Bike Flip Over Canyon
You'd think that riding along the edge of a cliff would be enough, but not for Kelly McGarry. You feel like you're going to fall off a mountain when he does the back flip.
The Miami Dolphins and Ryan Tannehill started out hot this season, going 3-0, but have since cooled off, losing three in a row. Tannehill has been up and down this year, averaging 16.51 fantasy points per game, but things may get a little easier against the banged-up New England Patriots' secondary, and I've got him going for 18.5. Regardless of how the Dolphins look, there is plenty of talent in Miami, and Lauren Tannehill is no exception. She's a 10.5, a call so easy even the ref from the Patriots-Jets game could get it right, bringing their total to 29.0.
Tonight, baseball fans across the country will tune in for the first game of the 2013 World Series. Sports bars in Boston and St. Louis will be especially packed. Which means, if you're in one of those cities, that you'll be crunched between even more, even sweatier dudes than normal. But you might, just might, meet a special girl who shares your Cardinals or Red Sox obsession. (A special girl who, if you're from New England, shares your uncontrollable, seething rage!)
