You can’t say I didn’t warn you. Week one is scary. Hopefully you followed my advice and saved the serious cash for future weeks. That’s right, I’m saying I told you so after a 1-3 week. Let’s just forget about it and win some money this week. In terms of confidence, it’s higher than week one but still not where it will be. Not until week four or five will the Tycoon really be running at peak performance. Even so, there are some games I like this week so here we go…
As always I pick every game just for fun then give you a few you should actually throw cash at. * denotes home team.
Giants* -8.5 over Bucs
Patriots* -13.5 over Cardinals
Colts* +1 over Vikings
Saints -2 over Panthers*
Buffalo* -3 over Chiefs
Raiders -2 over Dolphins*
Texans – 7 over Jaguars*
Cowboys -3 over Seahawks*
Redskins -3 over Rams*
Jets +6 over Steelers*
49ers* -6 over Lions
Broncos +3 over Falcons*
Free Money Picks
Packers* -6 over Bears
This one may seem a little shaky but I like the explosive, pissed off home team in a rivalry game. Pack bounces back.
Bengals* -7 over Browns
Bullying is a vicious cycle in this country. You got your school yard bullying, your locker room bullying, your cyber bullying and the NFL is no different. A big kid beats the relatively puny kid to a pulp so then the puny kid finds an even scrawnier one to knock around. Well the Ravens kicked the crap out of Cincy and now the Bengals are on the hunt for the skinny, asthmatic kid who is allergic to grass. As luck would have it, the Browns happen to be wheezing into town with their inhalers safely tucked inside their rolling backpacks. A beat-down is coming.
Lucas Lock of the Week: Double Bonus Edition
I like the first two picks but I love the last two. Someone in Vegas is high and we are going to take advantage. For the first time ever we have two locks of the week.
Chargers* -5 over Titans
I don’t understand.
Team 1: Looked good on the road and is the home team in the upcoming match-up with team two.
Team 2: Looked terrible at home and is an Eastern team traveling West. Oh, and the once electric, cornerstone of their offense looks like he’d have a rough time beating Vince Wilfork in the 40-yard dash much less Usain Bolt.
So easy. Chargers are a pretty good and are playing at home. The Titans suck and are on the road.
Ravens +2.5 over Eagles*
When are we going to stop believing in the Eagles? The Ravens looked like one of the best teams in football and the Eagles narrowly escaped with a win against the Browns. The Ravens were four points short of going to the Superbowl last year and the Eagles couldn’t even manage a winning record. AND I’M GETTING POINTS?
