I was 6-8 last week and my record for the season is 30-45-2. John was 8-6, bringing his record to 31-44-2.
John had the Giants getting 8 on Thursday night and I took the Bears. Go figure.
Here are this weeks' picks:
1.) Kansas City Chiefs (5-0) at home (-8) vs. Oakland Raiders (2-3)
The Raiders have won six in a row at Arrowhead and I don't like the points, but unless the RAiders defense makes plays I just can't pick against the Chierfs right now.
2.) Philadelphia Eagles (2-3) (-3) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-4)
The best part of this game is that it's not blacked out. Nick Foles will start and he's played against this Bucs team last year.
3.) Green Bay Packers (2-2) (-3) at Batimore Ravens (3-2)
The Ravens can't keep up.
4.) Detroit Lions (3-2) (-3) at Cleveland Browns (3-2)
Brandon Weeden turns it over,
5.) Minnesota Vikings (1-3) at home (-2.5) vs. Carolina Panthers
Panthers are too inconsistent.
6.) Houston Texans (2-3) at home (-8) vs. St. Louis Rams (2-3)
I really hate this hate these points, but the Rams can't run the ball either. HMMMMM
PREDICTION: RAMS TO COVER
7.) New York Jets (3-2) at home (-1) vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (0-4)
My gut tells me that the Steelers get their first win, but the Jets have a running game.
8.) Cincinnati Bengals (3-2) (-6) at Buffalo Bills (2-3)
The Bengals have not won the road, Thaddeus Lewis is starting at QB for Buffalo and six points are too many. Yes, the Bengals beat Brady, but the Bills have a running game.
PREDICTION: BILLS TO COVER
9.) Seattle Seahawks (4-1) (-13.5) vs. Tennessee Titans (3-2)
I hate these points but it's in Seattle.
10.) Denver Broncos (5-0) at home (0-27) vs. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-5)
Reason says take the points, but the Broncos would kick reason's ass too.
11.) San Francisco 49ers (3-2) at home (-10.5) vs. Arizona Cardinals (3-2)
The Cardinals don't have the balance.
12.) New England Patriots (4-1) at home (-1) vs. New Orleans Saints (5-0)
If I were a betting man this is where the money is played.
13.) Dallas Cowboys (2-3) at home (-6) vs. Washington Redskins (1-3)
Too many points.
PREDICTION: REDSKINS TO COVER
14.) Indianapolis Colts (4-1) (-2.5) at San Diego Chargers (2-3)
The Colts are becoming scary good.
