Lets see if I can do a little better than my 5-7 showing of last week. I have some thoughts on the World Series as well which I will get to tomorrow.
The Lions visit The Chiefs. Both teams have been bad this year, but the Lions have been worse and the Chiefs are home and on a mini roll. I’ll take The Chiefs -3.
The Vikings visit the Bears. I’ll take The Bears -1.
The Buccanneers visit The Falcons. The Falcons have cooled off some and the Bucs have been playing better. I would expect Atlanta to win, but I think the Bucs will keep it close. I’ll take The Bucs +7.
The Giants visit the Saints. If the Giants played a team with any kind of competent QB play last week they lose. The Saints have really seemed to get things together. I’ll take The Saints -3.
The 49ers visit The Rams. 8 points are just too many for me to give up in this one. I’ll take The 49ers +8.
The Cardinals visit the Browns. I’ll take The Cardinals -6.
The Bengels visit The Steelers. I’ll take The Bengels in a Pickem.
The Chargers visit the ravens. I’ll take The Ravens -3 1/2.
Titans visit the Texans. I’ll take The Titans +4.
The New York Jets visit The Oakland Raiders. I expect the Jets to bounce back after last week’s rough loss. I’ll take The Jets -3.
The Seahawks visit the tumbling Dallas Cowboys. Here comes a homer pick. I don’t necessarily think the cowboys will win but I do think they will keep this game close. They will have Cassel play conservatively and their defense will play well. I’ll take The Dallas Cowboys +6.
The Packers visit The Broncos. I’ll take The Packers -3.
The Colts visit the Panthers. I’ll take The Colts +7.
