My dreams of getting another winning streak collapsed
with the injury to McNabb and the monsoon in Pittsburgh. The good news is only the vig crushed me, and the over/unders returned to 2-0 form (I toyed with doing 3 last week; I pulled back from the over-41 in the Packer game). Here's hoping lucky 13 steamrolls through, even though some of the lines won't be coming from the usual Bodog...
Green Bay (+7) @ Dallas - The difference between the Packers and the Cowboys; a secondary. Since I've previously called for a 28-27 Packers' win, take the over-52.
Detroit @ Minnesota (-4) - The rook is back and rested. The division will be the Packers' outright about 3:06 pm Sunday.
NY Giants @ Chicago (+2) - The G-men are 7-4 on their way to 8-8. That 8th win won't come until it's too late.
Atlanta @ St Louis (-3.5; line from the Las Vegas Sports Consultants opening line) - The knockout defense knocked out the line at both Bodog and MGM Grand. No matter; Atlanta's toast.
Buffalo (+6) @ Washington - I do not want to bet on this game. However, there's a line on it.
Houston @ Tennessee (-4) - Haynesworth looks to be back. That spells doom.
Jacksonville (+7) @ Indianapolis - Don't these betters know that this series is always, but ALWAYS close and low-scoring, at least when both teams are healthy? Oh wait, the Colts aren't healthy. Take the under-45 and smash your Man with it.
New York Jets (+1.5; line from MGM Grand) @ Miami - Bodog has this game off the board due to the lack of Fin backs. Because of that, Miami will continue the free-fall.
San Diego (-6) @ Kansas City - Lose to the Raiders, lose all respect.
Seattle (+3; line from MGM Grand) @ Philadelphia - Again, this game is off the Bodog board due to injuries, this time to both teams. Seattle's done better this year dealing with their injuries.
San Francisco (+3) @ Carolina - Sooner or later, you have to cut bait. In betting, you have to do it sooner.
Cleveland (-1) @ Arizona - The arm's fallen off Warner and the ribs are crushed; the wheels aren't far behind for the transplanted Redbirds.
Denver (-3.5) @ Oakland - It's not shaping up to be a good weekend for the out-of-staters on the NRE roll.
Tampa Bay (+3) @ New Orleans - You may like the points, you may want the points, by law, you get the points, but you're not gonna need them! Take the defense.
Cincinnati (+7; line from MGM Grand) @ Pittsburgh - Dunno why this game's off the Bodog board, but the forecast is for fugly conditions. Olbermann is bemoaning the fact ESPN has the Pats for the Monday Night game.
New England (-21) @ Baltimore - Odds of the Pats not running up the score - 1,000-1. Don't be fooled into giving away your money.
