So I went 7-9 and only nailed 1 of my 2 over/unders. There's still 16 weeks left, but let's quickly review Weak 1 before moving on to Week 2 and redemption...
Miami 17 (+1) @ Pittsburgh 28
- I'm glad that Batch didn't play for Duh Lions.
Denver 10 (-4) @ St. Louis 18
- Snakebit again.NY Jets 23
@ Tennessee 16 (-2.5) - Damn it, damn it, damn iiiiit!Atlanta 20
@ Carolina 6 (-5) - At least I was right about Vick not being a passer.Cincinnati 23 (+1.5)
@ Kansas City 10 - Who needs an offense when you have a defense?Seattle 9
(-6.5-LOSS) @ Detroit 6 - And the Super Bowl Loser Slump™ begins early.Philadelphia 24 (-6)
@ Houston 10 - Lumber laid. You think the Texans could've used Bush?Baltimore 27
@ Tampa Bay 0 (-3) - At least I told you to take the under, but who knew the OldBrowns had an offense?New Orleans 19
@ Cleveland 14 (-3) - Bad news for this week; the Aint's are on a roll.
Buffalo 17 (+9.5-WIN)
@ New England 19
- Who knew neither team had an offense either?Chicago 26 (-4)
@ Green Bay 0 - Let the chants begin!
San Francisco 27 (+7.5-WIN)
@ Arizona 34 - I'm glad I got the points.
Dallas 17 (+2) @ Jacksonville 24
- I knew that was a bad reason to take the Pokes.Indianapolis 26 (-3.5)
@ NY Giants 21 - To answer last week's question, it's because neither team has a defense.Minnesota 19
@ Washington 16 (-4.5) - We really need something bad to happen to Brad Johnson; he just wins, baby.San Diego 27 (-3)
@ Oakland - Repeating - Two letters; LT.
With that out of the way, let's head on over to bodog.com and grab this week's smorgasbord of NFL action. As last week proved, you're an idiot if you take my advice and gamble with Knock-Knees Tony, so be warned that I do not cover any broken knees, fingers, necks, taxes or lawyers' fees -
New Orleans (-3) @ Green Bay - Until the Pack proves otherwise (or, more likely, until they get Duh Viqueens and Duh Lions outside in December), give the points.
Detroit (+8.5) @ Chicago - Special teams are rarely good for more than 5 points, so also take the under-32.
Oakland @ Baltimore (-13) - If you can't score against the Bolts, you can't score period.
Houston @ Indianapolis (-14) - This is turning into an all-lumber weekend. Start building your dream home.
Cleveland @ Cincinnati (-11) - The NewBrowns can't win at home against the Aint's, what makes anyone think they have a chance against the BENgals?
Buffalo (+6.5) @ Miami - Again, it's a tale of no offenses. They're already calling for Culpepper's head in Miami, not realizing the absolute disaster waiting in the wings.
Carolina (+1.5) @ Minnesota - You may like the 1 1/2 points, you may want the 1 1/2 points, and by law, if you gamble legally, you'll get the 1 1/2 points, but you're not gonna need them. The Panther Super Bowl Express gets back on the train this week.
New York Giants @ Philadelphia (-3) - Philly has a bit of a defense, the G-men don't.
Tampa Bay @ Atlanta (-6) - Chuckie, we have a problem. We have a complete defensive failure, a main offense undervolt, multiple caution and warning lights.
St Louis (-3) @ San Francisco - Take the over-43.5 as the main play here.
Arizona (+7) @ Seattle - It ain't December yet, so Denny Green isn't in full-choke mode yet.
New England (-6.5) @ NY Jets - I said it before, I'll say it again, so I'll spare you the chant this week.
Tennessee @ San Diego (-12) - Heck, Joan Rivers could start at QB and the Bolts would still cover.
Kansas City (+11) @ Denver - So I was wrong; it's not a all-lumber weekend.
Washington @ Dallas (-7) - Any week TO and She can stay out of Tuna's net is a good week to take the 'Boys.
Pittsburgh (-3) @ Jacksonville - You heard it here first; Big Ben's back, and the Jags are in trouble.
