The season rolls along around the league and in Las Vegas this weekend with me feeling a lot like the Buffalo Bills. Sure, I’m going to do my best to win, but what’s the point. Yes, that is how bad the last couple of weeks have been.
Just like Todd Haley, I’m not interested in excuses. So instead of harping on a horrific 5-9 week, it’s on to the week 6 games and a chance to get back up to .500 with a monster haul.
Once again, here is my best guess at this weekend’s games… For the best return on your investment, choose the exact opposite of what I pick.
Last Week: 5-9
Seattle at Chicago (-7) – Bears
Miami at Green Bay (-3) – Packers
San Diego at St. Louis (+8.5) – Chargers
Baltimore at New England (-3) – Ravens
Detroit at NY Giants (-10) – Giants
Atlanta at Philadelphia (-3) – Eagles
Cleveland at Pittsburgh (-14) – Browns
New Orleans at Tampa Bay (+4.5) – Bucs
Kansas City at Houston (-4.5) – Chiefs
NY Jets at Denver (+3) – Jets
Oakland at San Francisco (-6.5) – Raiders
Dallas at Minnesota (-1.5) – Vikings
Indianapolis at Washington (+3) – Colts
Tennessee at Jacksonville (+3) – Titans
As of 3pm on Friday, Bodog had 6 games off the board, not a bad idea considering how nutty things have been going the past few weeks.
In response to the complete mixed bag we’ve seen lately, I’ve decided to just flip out.
Browns playing on the road against the Steelers in Big Ben’s return? Sign me up!
The Bucs hosting the looking-to-rebound Super Bowl champs? Sounds good to me!
Oakland winning a road game? No doubt!
As for the Chiefs, I have very bad news for Todd Haley and Co. I am feeling very confident about Kansas City’s chances this week, so much so that I have convinced half a dozen people today to pick them in their office pools. Considering my recent history, the Chiefs could be in for a very, very long day in Houston on Sunday. And I’m likely in for a longer one on Monday when my friends lose their pools by a game.
