    I am a Browns fan and I think you have to bet against them until the line goes into the double figures.

    I just don't see them covering much less winning many games this year.

    I took the Ravens -6

    I agree on the Browns. I also like the Cardinals to bounce back in a big way

    Yep Ravens -6 and up to 7. Ravens defense looked good against the Bills and should hold the Browns to single digits too.

    Another for Ravens to cover the -6. Browns extremely young and making mistake after mistake. Browns better at QB this week but they won't be able to hang with Baltimore in Baltimore.

    Ryan Fitzpatrick is 1-8 vs Rex Ryan coached teams. Give me the bills +1.5 @ home tonight.

    I took the Panthers in my survivor pool. No way they open the season 0-2

    other than touts for Arizona, every "lock" is a dud. i'm going to review the "lock" list when i'm in vegas this fall and pull a Costanza. i'll be betting the opposite.

    using my own assessment skills i manage to wager on the wrong side 90 percent of the time, so i'm looking for any omen i can find.

    I am usually great on the NFL and suck at college but it is the opposite so far this year

    I, like a lot of people, felt the Ravens were a lock so took the spread (-4.5)...got very lucky in the end!

    People jumped on the Ravens and the spread decreased from 6 to 4.5? I guess I don't understand sports betting.

    Thank God for Von Miller!!! I decided to ride the Bronco's one more time at -6.5 and they were the third team on my 3-team parlay (Titans +5.5 and Pats-6.5 were the early games). I was a goner until he did his famous strip-sack again and the Broncos covered for me!!!
