Okay here goes for this week

First off I like the Raiders plus 10 to cover against the Chargers.
Sd to win 24-17. I think Oakland has improved and would not be shocked to see them win this game

The second one I like is Dallas plus 5.5 at home vs NE.

To me this reaks of a bad line. I think Dallas has enough to keep this game close and in the end could pull off an upset. I say NE wins 24-21.

I also like Washington plus 3 at Green Bay. I think Wash has a very good defense and will pull off the updet at Lambeau 24-19

Lastly the one that will get me flamed

I like the Jets AT HOME vs the Eagles (plus 3.5) to win outright 27-24

okay bring it on with the counters :laugh:

Vegas has been getting clobbered by the Patriots this year. Everyone has been putting their money on NE and they're now 5-0 against the spread. The line initially started at 3.5 and then went to 4.5 and is now at 5.5. It wouldn't suprise me to see it creep even higher. Dallas could view this as a lack of respect.

New England 31
Dallas 17

Also, I like the Giants minus 3.5 against Atlanta and Tennesee plus 2.5 over Tampa Bay.

I agree on the Giants and Tennessee. The Pats game looks close to me.

I think at some point the Pats will have to win a game the pre-Randy Moss days when they sometimes gutted out a win.

It aint going to be very easy all year long. But we shall see.

I've got the BYE beating out Denver 1-0.


Cards will win.

Boys will beat the Pats.

Eagles will win.

Packers will win.

Raiders will win.

This really blows.....I'll take the Chiefs over the Bengals by 7. While I won't be shocked if we pull it out against the Chiefs, we have no good linebackers healthy right now and LJ is still a monster.

I disagee, I think Cincy wins this game because they
are more talented on offense and KC has really struggled with their
offense in most games.


sorry KCL and KC Vet:scared:

Med,

What point spread league are you in? Is it an online league?

I was in one last year. It was a lot of fun. I made the playoffs.

I am actually in one with a few friends of mine.

It is for $$ so I take it pretty serious if you know what I mean :D

To me, since I was a kid the only way to pick games is vs the spread.

Here are all the games from my pool

Favorite Line Underdog Not Used
Cincinnati (1-3-0) 3 Kansas City (2-3-0) None
Jacksonville (3-1-0) 6.5 Houston (3-2-0) None
Cleveland (2-3-0) 4.5 Miami (0-5-0) None
Chicago (2-3-0) 5.5 Minnesota (1-3-0) None
Philadelphia (1-3-0) 2.5 NY Jets (1-4-0) None
Baltimore (3-2-0) 9.5 St.Louis (0-5-0) None
Tampa Bay (3-2-0) 2.5 Tennessee (3-1-0) None
Green Bay (4-1-0) 3.5 Washington (3-1-0) None
Arizona (3-2-0) 4.5 Carolina (3-2-0) None
New England (5-0-0) 4.5 Dallas (5-0-0) None
San Diego (2-3-0) 9.5 Oakland (2-2-0) None
Seattle (3-2-0) 6.5 New Orleans (0-4-0) None
NY Giants (3-2-0) 3.5 Atlanta (1-4-0) None

Home teams are in BOLD

KC has a pretty nice D and Palmer has been missing his check downs as of late. For the Bengals to win the offense is going to have to play well and not just live off of their great year in 05.....

I guess if we can hold LJ in check like we did last year we should be pretty well off as far as that goes. The real issue is that Cincinnati has a bad habit of losing track of tight ends in the middle of the field, and that will not work out well when you have to play against Gonzo.

It was a heavyweight battle most of the way but NE exploited Dallas' depleted corners.

Although the Cowboys still look like the class of the NFC thus far. They have a punishing defense.

What do you think the Pats/Fins spread will be next week in Miami? I'm thinking it could go to 17 1/2.

It should be 20 the way the Pats look

Miami has no chance to win that game. Currently it is 14.5 and I think
NE wins 38-3
