Steelers -1.5 vs Bengals
The Bengals have the momentum going into this game or should I say fight. There's over a 50% chance someone's going to get ejected. This is a can't miss game. Whichever team's QB is still playing at the end of this game will win. This will be a tossup considering how sloppy the field will be. I'm guessing the Steelers will uncover the field early in attempt to slow the Bengals down. I see a low scoring game that the Bengals pull out by the grace of God. They are by no means locks.
Under ** 43
Indy -7 vs Jacksonville
This will be the first game the Colts will really feel the loss of their Edge.
Jacksonville +7 is a no brainer.
Jaguars +7 **
Ravens -7 vs Browns
The Ravens know they must take care of business in the AFC North before thinking about the Playoffs. They have lost at Cleveland two years in a row so I don't think a letdown will occur.
Ravens -7 **
Tampa Bay +3 vs Carolina
Steve Smith is a game time decision. The last 10 times these teams have squared off the visiting team is 2-8 vs the spread. Yes, the Panthers should have won last week but that doesn't mean the ball will bounce their way on Sunday. The Buccs do look anemic on Offense so far you say, think about the fact that Atlanta could only put 14 point on the board at home despite winning the time of possession battle by over 10 minutes. At 0-2, the Buccs are just as hungry for a win as the Panthers. The Buccs are division home dogs. A truly intelligent gambler wouldn't touch this game.
Buccs +3 *
Vikings +3.5vs Bears
The Bears have played no one respectable so far. If they go into Minnesota and win convincingly there are plenty of games left to "get on" them. This doesn't look like a good spot. Bernard Berrian is not going to go wild. The Bears haven't won in Minnesota since 2001. It won't be easy to win this one.
The Under of 35 is way too low if you think Grossman is the real deal.
Houston +4 vs Washington
What am I missing here? Something stinks, this may be the last time the Texans are less than a touchdown dog this season except for vs Tennessee.
Washington -4 **
At 0-2 the Redskins do not need extra motivation. If they don't cover this one, look for them to go seriously in the tank.
Seahawks -3.5 vs Giants
The Giants may be tired after last week's marathon vs Philly. This is their second road game in a row. The Giants look like the right choice but sometimes the right choice is a loser. We will finally see if the Seahawks offense is really struggling or not because they know they need at least 24 points to beat the Giants.
Seawaks * -3.5
Bills -6 vs Jets
Hard to believe this bullshit. The Jets will need some freak plays to cover here. The Bills have been impressive and haven't played a home game yet. I still don't trust them as favorites.
Bills * -6
Detroit -7 vs Green Bay
Do you want to give the Lions (of all teams) the benefit of the doubt just because they've gone up against two good defenses? You might as well because Detroits front seven should have a field day.
Detroit -7 *
Only a Lions fan would take 'em as favorites.
San Fran +6 vs Philly
Beating the crap out of the Niners won't make losing last week to the Giants any better. This looks very similar to the Cowboys - Niners game last season. the Cowboys had blown a lead the previous week to Washington. You would think they wanted to take their frustrations out on the Niners. Wrong. It took them 3 quarters to wake up before pulling out a close one. The Eagles won 42-3 vs San Fran last year. The Niners still suck but they are no longer the worst team in the league and play very hard for thier Coach. Last years whippping only provides more motivation.
49ers +6 *
New England -6.5 vs Denver 39
Denver's defense may keep this one closer than expected. Points will be hard to come by.
Miami -11 vs Tennessee
Even Culpepper will look good vs the Titans. I like to bet against him. He's just a fumble away from ruining your day. Seeing a winless team laying 11 points seems odd. The Fish stink from a mile away.
Tennessee +11 *
Arizona -4 vs St Louis 45
I haven't seem enough of these teams to make a call. Both defenses need improvement. My guess is Steven Jackson will have a huge day. Will the Cardinals convert a few TDs in the Redzone? A bunch of field goals won't get a cover.
Rams +4 *
Atlanta -3.5 vs New Orleans
Atlanta should stomp the Saints pretty good. The officiating is the only thing that can screw us here.
Falcons *** -3,5
