Week 3 Picks
Week 2 was a great start. 0-4-1. Yes. The problem was falling in love with a couple of games and ignoring the rest. You should never fall in love with a game, especially in week 2. Let’s spread out the action this week:
(HOME TEAM IN CAPS)
CINCY -2.5 over San Fran – San Fran always gets respect because people always expect them to be good. They can’t pass the ball at all and even though they have looked decent through two games this season both games were at home. Now they go on the road against a team they won’t be able to establish the run against.
New England -7 over Buffalo – At 9 points this is a tough pick. But at 7 it is easy to take the Pats. They will give up tons of points to the Bills but I don’t see how Buffalo gets any stops at all.
NEW ORLEANS -4 over Houston – Tough game to pick. But Houston has beat Indy and Miami, I still don’t trust them.
New York Giants +9 over PHILLY – Nine points? Where does this come from? I don’t care how injured the Giants are. That is insane.
Miami +1 over CLEVELAND – At only one point this game is a stay away. But Miami needs a win to save the season.
Denver +6.5 over TENNESSEE – Too many points. Over reaction to week 2 for the Titans.
MINNESOTA +3 over Detroit – I will abandon the Vikings if they can’t pull this one-off. I have trouble picking McNabb but 90% of the public is taking Detroit so I don’t feel as bad. KC fell apart last week when Charles got hurt but before that it was a deceivingly close game.
Jacksonville +3.5 over CAROLINA – I have no idea.
Kansas City +14.5 over SAN DIEGO – Too many points, simple.
New York Jets -3 over OAKLAND – Never fun to take the road favorite but the Jets look like a great team and Oakland isn’t fooling me.
Baltimore -4 over ST LOUIS - Baltimore coming off a loss and St. Louis hasn’t clicked any game this season. Expected this line to be much higher.
Atlanta +1 over TAMPA BAY – Tampa hasn’t shown anything this year. Don’t understand this line at all.
SEATTLE +3.5 over Arizona – I understand Seattle is terrible but they haven’t played a home game yet. They are a different team at home and it is not like Arizona is good.
CHICAGO +3.5 over Green Bay – Chicago always seems to play well after they have a big loss.
INDY +10.5 over Pittsburgh – Too many points again. But I would never put money on Kerry Collins.
Washington +5.5 over DALLAS – Don’t like Dallas to beat any decent team with points.
