Where picking the Lions with the points continues to happen for no apparent reason.
5. Detroit Lions (+7 1/2) vs. Washington Redskins
Should the Redskins absolutely destroy the Lions? Yes. Will they? Probably. But the Lions are on a 2 straight cover streak for me behind Dan Orlovsky and I'm sticking with them.
4. New Orleans Saints (+3 1/2) vs. San Diego Chargers in London
I think this is a toss up game with both teams still not being healthy at all. I'm taking the Saints simply thanks to the 3 1/2 points.
3. Arizona Cardinals (+4 1/2) at Carolina Panthers
I know the Panthers absolutely beat the crap out of New Orleans last weekend but I think fresh off the bye week the Cardinals offense is going to be firing on all cylinders. Do I think the Cardinals will win? Well yes I do. But I certainly won't throw away those 4 1/2 points I get either.
2. Oakland Raiders (+6 1/2) at Baltimore Ravens
Flacco has not played well in recent weeks, the Ravens offense still isn't explosive and 6 1/2 points is a lot to give in those circumstances. I think the Raiders lose but keep it close.
1. New England Patriots (-7 1/2) vs. St. Louis Rams
The Pats showed a little 2007 in their dominant victory monday night over the Broncos. I don't think they will look quite that good this weekend, but they should be good for more than a touchdown victory.
Survivor League Pick: SCREW Seattle
Eagles need the win at home and Westbrook should be a go. Plus Matty Ice is due for a bad game.
