I went 10-6 last week with the spread picks but I don't have anywhere near the same confidence as I did last weekend. I have a bad feeling about these.
5. New York Jets (-2 1/2) vs. New England Patriots
Do I really have a ton of confidence in the Jets winning this game? Hell no. Do I think you have to be criminally insane to bet this game? Ya pretty much. Neither you, me, Bill BEEEEELLLIIICHIIICK, Matt Cassel or probably God know how Matt Cassel is going to play this weekend. Betting on this game is stupid. With that being said the Jets are going to win. (Or probably make me cry / drink excessive amounts of beer)
4. New York Giants (-8 1/2) at St. Louis Rams
The Rams just lost 38-3 against the Eagles. The Giants are the defending champs, I don't care about 9 points or the road game, they're going to win and beat the spread easily.
3. New Orleans Saints (- 1/2) at Washington Redskins
Well they aren't going to tie, so this is a Pick 'em game. And since I think the Saints are going 14-2 and since the Redskins have no clue on offense right now, I'm picking the Saints.
2. Green Bay Packers (-2 1/2) at Detroit Lions
I have the Lions winning the division so I guess this would classify as a must win if that was to happen. But how could you pick a team that just gave up 300 yards on the ground to a perennial doormat. The Lions are awful.
1. Indianapolis Colts (-1 1/2) at Minnesota Vikings
Ok. 1) The Vikings are vastly overrated by everybody for some reason, perhaps the love of Purple Jesus. 2) The game is on the turf so no ill effects for the Colts. 3) Come on you really think the Colts are going to go 0-2?
Survivor League Pick: Seattle Seahawks
Um, I'm not very comfortable with any team this week to be completely honest. I hate taking the Seahawks cause they have zero wideouts. But they're playing at home against JT O'Sullivan they have to win right? Right?
