    Ok lets see what people think

    I'm going with

    Detroit -7
    Dallas -3
    Seattle +1

    Keep in mind that my picks have been very BAD.

    I was 1-5 last week.

    The Lion game almost looks too easy...which always concerns me. I took the Chiefs on Sunday + 2

    -I like Det at home,

    - Philly, biggest game of the year for Dallas and Romo, and you know what happens to Romo, the bigger the game the bigger the :vomit:

    - SF since they are home and a needed win or may be out of the playoff picture.

    -KC at home after Oak effort along with the Berry issues will be fired up. must game win for them. Denvers hurting after taking a pounding from last 2 weeks defenses.

    -Looking forward to my Pats vs GB 2 teams at their peak right now, could be SB preview like the Pats getting 3pts

    Like I said I have been picking bad so I'm either going to keep picking wrong or it is about to turn??? NO Idea.


    The NE Pats vs GBay Packer should be a great game. No idea there either except for maybe the over if it was not so high at 59

    I'm a Chicagoan. We had high hopes this year. The Bears are very bad. One stat that I heard was IMO the main reason we are bad. Of all the NFL teams, which teams have the most new players with 31 and which team has the least new players at 5? Bears have 31 new players and Packers have 5 new players. Teams like the Packers have a system. Bears management thinks they can trade their way to success. Well that hasn't worked. Put it all on the Lions. I doubt the Bears will score in the first half at all.

    LOL very good insight. But a while back on a Sunday night SF 49er vs Bears game were I had SF and they were leading in the first half and lost the game. Hard to say.

    The Bears should lose both lines of scrimmage in this game.

    The bigger issues with the Bears begin at the very top of the food chain

    The bears have looked bad on offense vs weak defenses - the lions have a good one - I think they rout them

    Interesting that all 6 teams playing on Thanksgiving are NFC.

    Fluke. Also, Bears O line getting shuffled. Cutler will be battered and frustrated. He'll throw an interception or two and maybe fumble for good measure.

    Detroit -7 and over 48, niether team can stop the pass very well, and the dome=track meet
    Dallas -3 and Under 56, Philly is one butt fumble away from being the Jets, and Demarco and the run game will keep it low enough to stay under
    San Francisco -1.5, home team has won 10 of last 11 meetings.

    All I'm against everyone it seems but I'm taking the Bears +6.5 points. Divisional games teams usually show up to play.

    I'm also taking the over at 54.5 Dallas vs. Philly. I see that as another crazy high scoring game.

    I'm in a football league taking 15 games ATS and over 54% and +EV with the juice. That being said my wins are primarily college.

    If you want a winner today take Texas at anything +6.

    I"m going to have to go against that. I think TCU will cover the -6 vs Texas.


    Will have to see. I have the Lions too.

    LOL

    LOL I hear ya, sometimes when one play seems so obvious like TCU go the other way. UT is playing a lot better as of late with 3 wins vs. a TCU team that only beat Kansas by 4 in there last game. I have a feeling this will be a let down for TCU on the road.

    I hope your right. At the end of the day this is only $100 league for me I'm guessing you got real money on TCU.

    Good luck.

    Cards -2.5 I'm banking on the D dominating.

    UCLA -5.5
    Bama -9.5 Hoping they're pissed about last year.
    Mizzou -2.5
