Once again, a Thursday night loss, I made my pick on Twitter (@WilliamBotchway):
Steelers (-6) over TITANS.
Perfect, just perfect! I am now 1-5 on early week games, 0-1 this week, and 35-40-3* this season. The Packers and Seahawks know why there is an asterisk there. There are 13 games left this week, and my goal is to get to at least even.
"UPSET ALERT" next to games in which I think the underdog will win outright, not only cover. Also, home team in CAPS.
FALCONS (-10) over Raiders. It looks too easy to pick the Falcons. And it is that easy. Atlanta at home against a terrible defense.
BROWNS (+2.5) over Bengals. Cleveland played the Bengals tough the last time that they played, and the Bengals aren't that good. At home, the Browns could finally get their first win. UPSET ALERT.
DOLPHINS (-5) over Rams. The Dolphins are good, and playing at home.
Colts (+3.5) over JETS. Still riding their emotional high from last week, the Colts will probably win this game against the dysfunctional Jets. Even if they lose, it will be close. UPSET ALERT.
Lions (+3.5) over EAGLES. I trust neither team, so I'm going with the close game. UPSET ALERT.
BUCCANEERS (-4.5) over Chiefs. Brady Quinn, starting, on the road.
RAVENS (-3.5) over Cowboys. The Cowboys are so unpredictable that I may never pick them to win a game.
CARDINALS (-5.5) over Bills. The Cardinals have a terrible offensive line, but the Bills defense is an atrocity.
SEAHAWKS (+3.5) over Patriots. Tough defense for the Patriots to navigate with their hurry-up offense. It's impossible to hear with the 12th man in the stadium. UPSET ALERT
Giants (+7) over 49ERS. Why are the 49ers giving a touchdown? Either way, this should be a great game. UPSET ALERT.
Vikings (-1) over REDSKINS. Not sure if RGIII will be timid due to his injury, but the Vikings are a better team.
TEXANS (-3.5) over Packers. The Packers offense needs to get back on track, and it won't be this week against a top 2 defense in the NFL.
Broncos (-.5) over CHARGERS. Monday Night, Peyton Manning versus Norv Turner.
Last Week: 7-7
This Week: 0-1
