Welcome to Killin’ the Odds & the NFL Season! Below you will see my picks to win for the week. I will post either the “Money Line” or the “Point Spread”. The money line is always a “straight up” bet which means your team will never need to win or lose by a specific amount of points. The money line odds represent what amount has to be wagered or what can be won. For example, if there is a minus sign (-) next to an amount, you have to wager that amount to win 100. If there is a plus sign (+) next to an amount, you will receive that amount for every 100 wagered. A “Point Spread” wager is made on either the favorite (-) or underdog (+) team. A wager on the favored team means that this team must not only win but also win by the specified point spread. A wager on the underdog means that this team may either win or lose, as long as they do no lose by more than the specified point spread. If the game ends on the teams meeting the spread exactly, the wager is a push. Example: If the Cowboys are favored by -3 and win the game by exactly 3 points, the wager is a push.
Pittsburgh Steelers +3.5 (-110) @ Houston Texans -3.5 (-110) My Pick: Houston Texans Point Spread (Sportsbook)
The Steelers are starting to worry me. They are having all kinds of trouble on the offensive line and their defense is showing age. The Texans appear to be for real and their offense is clicking on all cylinders.
New York Giants -1.5 (-110) @ Arizona Cardinals +1.5 (-110) My Pick: Arizona Cardinals Point Spread (Sportsbook)
The Cardinals will get a boast to their offense this week if they get Beanie Wells and Stephens-Howling back. Last week the Cardinals looked good out of the no-huddle offense and the Giants won’t be able to fake injuries this time! Give me the West Coast home dog with the points.
Detroit Lions +2.5 (-110) @ Dallas Cowboys -2.5 (-110) My Pick: Detroit Lions Point Spread (Sportsbook)
The injuries for Dallas don’t seem to go away. Tony Romo (ribs), Felix Jones (shoulder), Dez Bryant (quad), and Miles Austin (hamstring), are all battling through injuries right now. The Stafford-Johnson connection has been an unstoppable duo this season.
Atlanta Falcons -5.5 (-110) @ Seattle Seahawks +5.5 (-110) My Pick: Seattle Seahawks Point Spread (Bodog)
Look for Atlanta’s road woes to continue this Sunday as they have to travel to the West Coast and face Seattle at home. Seattle’s defense plays pretty tough at home so I think Atlanta will struggle to put up points. Atlanta’s defense has not been good this season and Sidney Rice will play for his second straight week (8/109 in debut).
Washington Redskins -2.5 (-110) @ St. Louis Rams +2.5 (-110) My Pick: Washington Redskins Point Spread (Sportsbook)
The Redskins’ defense has only given up 17.7 PPG and St. Louis has scored only 12 PPG. The Rams’ opponents have been getting to Sam Bradford pretty easily so I expect Washington to do the same. The Rams have been outscored 96-36 so far this season.
