On the road again - Just can't wait to get on the road again. My penchant for being enticed by road teams is back in full force after splitting with a pair of home teams last week. A pair of my picks including my best bet are road favorites in divisional matchups. Will I ever learn? Unlikely.
home team in bold
Best BetArizona Cardinals (-3.0) over Seattle Seahawks
Kevin Kolb looks like the real deal. The problem is the Cardinals defense has given up 932 yards in 2 games. That's unlikely to be a problem against Tarvaris Jackson in Seattle.
OthersSan Fransisco 49ers (+2.5) over Cincinnati Bengals
A west coast team playing the early game in the eastern time zone is a suckers bet. I am a big enough sucker to take the bait. Andy Dalton and the Bengals have been better than expected with a plus points differential and 1-1 record after a pair of road games. Clearly I am not a believer.
Detriot Lions (-3.5) over Minnesota Vikings
Leslie Frazier has been adamant in his defense of Donovan McNabb. The Lions have to be pleased.
Last WeekDallas Cowboys (-3.0) over San Fransisco 49ers PUSH
Denver Broncos (-6.0) over Cincinnati Bengals LOSS
Atlanta Falcons (+2.5) over Philadelphia Eagles WIN
Year to Date: 2-2-2 Best Bets: 0-1-1
