Bucs @ New England(4.5)
Seems like too much. Tampa still has some life, methinks.
Chefs @ New Jersey Giants(3)
The Giants haven’t looked good lately, but I think they’ll get it done at home.
Broncos(9) @ Buffalo
Well, the Bills are indeed awful, but I’m sticking with my theory that the Broncos are falling apart. I mean, they’ll still win, but only just.
Niners @ Jacksonville(16)
Mmm, San Fran on the road. Gotta give the points.
Eagles @ St. Louis(3)
That was a nice showing by the Iggles last week, but they can’t sustain it.
Chargers @ Indy(7.5)
Week to week, what do the Chargers do? Confound. Week to week, the Colts cover big spreads. I’m going with Indy here, as usual.
Cardinals(1.5) @ Houston
Look at how thin the Texans spread is! They know they’ll keep it close. But they’ll still lose, because they have to stay “ahead” of the Niners for Reggie. Cardinals.
Panthers(9.5) @ New Rouge Antonio
I see that the bookies have completely given up on the Aints. I have to concur.
Seahawks(7.5) @ Tennessee
Seattle shouldn’t have trouble running it up against the sorry Titans.
Steelers(3) @ Minnesota
I’m not getting off the Brad Johnson bandwagon! You can’t make me!
Jest @ Miami(9)
Ugh. Yeah, sure, the Dolphins should be favored, but by nine? Too rich for my blood.
Browns @ Oakland(3)
Another coin flip. Well, Cleveland has been especially awful on the road, so I have to go with the Raiders.
Bengals(8.5) @ Detroit
Whatever. I’m not picking the Lions.
Cowboys @ Washington(2.5)
This seems weird to me. I know it’s a home game for the Redskins, but how are they favored? I’m so taking the points.
Falcons @ Chicago(3)
Atlanta can beat bad teams, but I’m not convinced they can really stand up to teams with winning records. The Bears D is fast and not afraid of Vick. Da Bears, who amazingly actually need the win to keep their division lead!
Packers @ Baltimore(3.5)
Green Bay really showed me something last week. They showed me that they suck, barely edging the Lions at home. Ravens.
