I had no time to write this week seeing as how I worked 50 hours to get everything done in time to attend EIU’s Homecoming, which I’m leaving for momentarily. But I at least wanted to get my picks recorded. So here they are, if you care.
Buffalo Bills at Baltimore Ravens (-13.5) – They couldn’t make this line high enough. Did I mention the Bills are bad? Ravens to win and cover.
Cincinnati Bengals at Atlanta Falcons (-3.5) – I totally jinxed the Falcons last week. Falcons to win and cover.
Cleveland Browns at New Orleans Saints (-13.5) – See: Bills/Ravens. Saints to win and cover.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Kansas City Chiefs (-9.5) – This line is this high because Todd Bouman is starting for Jacksonville. Still too high. Chiefs to win and Jags to beat the spread.
Philadelphia Eagles at Tennessee Titans (-3) – Titans are the Falcons of the AFC. Titans to win and cover.
Pittsburgh Steelers (-3) at Miami Dolphins – Upset special. Dolphins to win outright.
San Francisco 49ers (-3) at Carolina Panthers – Do I really have to say anything about this game? No. Panthers to win outright.
St. Louis Rams at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-2.5) – Umm…. Bucs to win, Rams to beat the points.
Washington Redskins at Chicago Bears (-3) – Why are the Bears favored? Redskins to win outright.
Arizona Cardinals at Seattle Seahawks (-6.5) – I believe the Seahawks are the best team in this crappy division. (That opinion changes weekly). Seahawks to win, Cardinals to beat the spread.
New England Patriots at San Diego Chargers (-2) – Again, why are the Chargers favored? Patriots to win outright.
Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos (-8.5) – No team in the AFC West should be giving this many points. Even if it were against Buffalo. Broncos to win, Raiders to beat points.
Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers (-2.5) – Homer alert. Packers to win and cover.
New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys (-3) – Can’t figure out why the Cowboys are favored, but I’m picking them. Cowboys to win and cover.
Week 6 – 9-5 (10-3-1 against spread)
Overall: 46-43 (41-46-2 against spread)
