    Looks like my LOCK this week will be
    St. Louis Rams +170
    over the Dallas Cowboys

    I am also betting the spread at +4
    (This is all at WilliamHill)

    1. There's no such thing as a lock.
    2. Dallas is a good team, @ home and angry about a loss in KC.
    3. STL is a bad road team.

    Dallas? Angry?

    They don't have an angry bone in their bodies. All bluster from Jerrah and Stephen Jones about the "secret sauce" to winning championships and they still look like the same clown show as they have in previous years.

    Romo is just a guy. Sometimes he's good, sometimes he's awful (see backbreaking INTs at the worst times) and most of the time he's an average NFL QB. Their offense was supposed to be kick started by removing the play calling from Garrett's plate and giving it to Bill Callahan. Still the same stagnant offense.

    Dallas also isn't strong at home...18-15 at JerryWorld

    I would look at total for Jags Seahawks
    Jags have scored 11 points on offense
    Seahawks have gived up 10 points on defense
    40.5 is total
    I do not see game going over.
    Wonder if Jags made 2 coast to coast trips or if they stayed on West Coast after Raiders game?

    I heard a bit of the conference call with Gus Bradley today and he said that they stayed on the West Coast.

    I haven't done any analysis whatsoever, but I think the Cowboys take care of business and win at home. Good luck.

    That's why I'm betting the spread...just in case, they can win by a field goal...
    But I think Bradford and the boys will take care of Romo and the cowgirls

    It seems like the last few times the spread was 20 points( or more) over the last few years, the dogs have covered like the last 4 of 5 time. Can see the hawks a little flat for a time being after mauling the 49whiners. Jags staying on the coast. Kinda like the under but wouldn't call it a lock. To me there are no locks this week.

    If anything, I'll do the opposite of what people post that call a team a nickname in a negative form.

    I wouldn't have believed the Colts beat the 49ers, OR the Giants debacle...

    It's easy to armchair quarterback. Not sure how I would have picked it.

    But seeing things like this give me a good laugh. Thanks for that. Better luck next week.

    Honesty leaving out the 0-3 teams, this is the most parity I've ever seen in the NFL.

    If you didn't take the Seahawks are your survivor pick this week, you don't know football

    With the exception of St. Louis in 2 weeks I would pick everyone vs the Jaguars up until Week 9 when they have a bye week.

    Indy, at Rams, at Broncos, Chargers and London vs 49'ers

    I don't know. I think BYE might give the Jags a run for the money
