Can I do better? I am not feeling confident. The solution? A cavalier attitude, not actually betting and pithy commentary. Or at least what I take to be pithy commentary. I loved a bunch of road teams this week. Road teams always entice me as my record would indicate. I would have been happy with the Patriots (-4.5) at Raiders, Giants (-1.5) at Cards or Vikes (-1.5) at Chiefs. I also really liked the Chargers (-7) over Dolphins at home. I just have no faith in Norv Turner.

Best BetAtlanta Falcons (-4.5) over Seattle Seahawks
It's a trap - Admiral Ackbar.
My brain hurts even thing about the desperate Falcons not obliterating the Seahawks. I don't care how far the Falcons have to travel.
OthersNew Orleans Saints (-7.0) over Jacksonville Jaguars
Drew Breesus can score from all over the field. Given the state of his team's pass defense it is often necessary. I just don't think the defensive deficiencies are going to matter much in Blaine Gabbert's second start. Even sans monsoon.
Buffalo Bills (-3.0) over Cincinnati Bengals
The Bills appear to be getting no respect with this line. I can't see how the Bengals can hang with their offense.
