Green Bay is a lock. They might win by at 3 TD's or more.

This is pre-mid season San Diego. The ones that go 2-6 before going on an 11 game winning streak (and then lose the next week in the playoffs).

How are the Chiefs underdogs? If anything I'd think we'd be even against the Browns.

New England over New York. They've been waiting 8 months to blow that Jets team out of the water.

CAROLINA 3 Tampa Bay 39

Carolina should beat Tampa fairly well, imo. Though I guess you never know if they will think they are a passing team again as the disclaimer...

Houston 3 WASHINGTON 43

Houston should beat Washington by more than 3.

New England 2 NY JETS 38

I like New England here to be fairly comfortable winners. Jets aren't as good as last year because they haven't upgraded anywhere on offense or defense. In fact I would argue they are probably weaker at this point at most positions(CB, LB, RB and OG)

Monday, Sep. 20
New Orleans 4 SAN FRANCISCO 44

New Orleans should cover this line comfortably.

I like Pittsburgh and Arizona as the underdogs to cover their lines but not enough to say they are locks.

Lol at us not possibly being more different in our thoughts on the first 2 games there! I picked them as the two that the underdogs would win!

I'd say Tennessee and KC, maybe Baltimore.

I'm surprised the Ravens are listed as a favorite, it's going to be a tough game to win for us.

I know that Green bay should beat the Bills easily, but im always leary of putting money on big point spreads. Weather is always a factor, if something bad happens to Rodgers, maybe the Bill defense shows up. etc etc

Teams traveling from coast-to-coast usually play very poorly, so I don't like Jacksonville's chances, despite San Diego's propensity to play poorly during the beginning of the season.

The two spreads that stick out are Chicago +8.5 and Kansas City +2. As for over-under, I would take the Under on KC-CLE and the over in IND-NY and CHI-DAL.

I'm the same way. Not to mention the Bills actually have a very good pass defense and the Packers obviously like to pass. Probably even more without Grant. They're going to win without a doubt but I'd say they win by about 10.

Assuming you automatically give the home team a 3 point advantage line is about right I guessed Cle -1 when I was listening along with the BS Report today.

Also like Chicago to cover, think its just a 1 score game, and id like the st louis moneyline/cover.

I agree with this. We're historically TERRIBLE when we play on the west coast.

Last year, Jacksonville really struggled going West Coast.

Green Bay is a stone-cold lock to win by at least two touchdowns against the inept Bills. Barring some fluky CJ Spiller runs, Buffalo will struggle to put up double-digits, and Rodgers will dismantle their defense.

I like Kansas City to beat Cleveland, alot. Both teams have inept quarterbacks, but Kansas City's defense is very legit, as are their running backs and KOR/PR. This game will come down to defense and fluke plays, and Kansas City's defense has the potential to be really special this year.

New England will beat the Jets by at least a touchdown. Tom Brady is back to playing at an elite level, and the New England offense finally has good tight ends. Revis will easily erase Moss, but Brady will be able to hit Gronkowski and Welker all day against the Jets' #2 and #3 corners. Naturally, Mark Sanchez will struggle to even get near the end zone against the Pats' solid defense.

The Giants are going to destroy the Colts. The Colts defense is terrible this year, and not just because Arian Foster ran for record yards against them. They can't even get a decent pass rush out of aging ends Freeney and Mathis, and Jerry Hughes is going to be a bust. But most importantly, you can run the ball ALL DAY against these guys. Look for Ahmad Bradshaw to have a huge day. The Colts OL will struggle mightily to block the Giants pass rushers and Peyton Manning will probably throw at least one pick.

You can't really go wrong betting on the Giants, Patriots, Chiefs, and Packers this week.

Last year, Jacksonville really struggled going West Coast.

41-0 loss at Seattle
20-3 loss at San Francisco
34-21 loss at San Diego
13-6 win at Oakland
24-15 loss at Seattle
20-9 win at Oakland
17-3 loss at Oakland

2-5 all time on the West Coast and outscored by an average of 11 points per game, so it wasn't just last year that they struggled.

The Jets had a really hard time going to the West Coast the year before that as well, some key losses. I think it definitely hurts teams going west.
