Week One is in the books. So use this thread to discuss any Week Two games or wagers
I love Miami SCR @ Buffalo. I think Buffalo played well week 1, but if you take away the fact that Jay Cutler handed them the game on a plate, it's tough to see how they would beat a team which don't turn the ball over quite so easily.
Buccaneers -5.5 vs Rams: McCown had 2 bad turnovers vs Panthers (just google it, looked like Tony Romo 2.0). Goldson missed huge opportunity to win it with a Pick6 for Bucs. Bucs D couldnt force a turnover. Lost Turnover battle 0:3 and it was still a close game. Looks like the Rams will start the backup backup QB against a solid Bucs D. Bucs OC is back this week after health issues. $$$ on Bucs.
I have no idea how good or bad the Rams are yet but the Bucs only got close to the Panthers after Rivera started playing a prevent defense in the 4th quarter.
after the beatdown last weekend 2 wins-6 losses gonna concentrate on over unders vs the spread
I'm liking the +7 the Bears are getting this week. Being a Niner fan, I can tell you we like to coast with leads as witnessed in the Cowboy games egg in the second half. Bears offense is potent enough to keep it close if our pass rush lacks and we also have 2 concussions and a toe injury with the starting secondary.
chicago, so you picking the rams?
just want to know which team you pick before the game starts.
Two games that look too good to be true.
Tenn. -31/2. Dallas on the road with that poor defense.
Arizona +1/2. Giants look bad.
Two good defenses against two bad defenses.
Is LV baiting me?
I haven't dug into the lines yet...I am waiting until my pick 'em site posts them.
However the Eagles go to Indy on MNF and get to take a whack at the Colts. Indy has zero pass rush but the Eagles have to shuffle their OL in a big way after losing Evan Mathis for eight weeks and Allen Barbre (Lane Johnson's replacement at RT)...so hopefully the OL can play like they did in the second half against JAX. I have a feeling we'll see Shady rip off a 140-160 yard type game on the turf.
You and I are on the same page here
I don't see NE losing two games in a row. I like NE at -3 against the Vikings. However, the Vikings looked really good last game. Stopping AP will be tough for NE.
Ive also been looking at chi for week 2 and might use them for one of my lvh contest picks.
I agree on the NE pick. I was at the game in Miami and it was HOT and Humid, I think NE lost steam in the second half. I think it will be a different story in the comfort of the dome. Happy my Phins won, but I think that game may be an aberration.
There should be some good value bets on the board as people really like to put too much emphasis on the results of week 1. A few games I like:
Detroit +3 @ Carolina
San Diego +6 vs Seattle
Chicago +7 @ SF
Won't make any bets until Friday or Saturday when I have a little more time for research.

Vikings are playing outside this year at the Gopher's stadium, TCF Bank Stadium.
I'm not betting the game
good idea, because the rams offense looked very strong vs the "prevent" defense.
the "prevent" defense with blitz and press man coverage is an awesome thing.
only the roughing the passer penalty kept tampas drive alive. plus the olsen "drop". should have been 24-0.
good to see the game twice.
Don't get too overly excited about a team winning or losing in week 1. Forget everything you think you've learned about the NFL in week 1 because if you use that information this week, you'll probably end up losing.
fixed it for you.
Preseason yields a load of good information about how a team will play in the regular season if you focus on the starters.
I say take Minnesota. Peterson and Patterson are going to burn that defense, and the Minnesota defense looked very solid. (For the record I am a die hard vikings fan)
