Note: I am not guaranteeing shit for these. If you bet these to a T and lose money, well, that’s your problem. I’m shooting for 60% accuracy the whole season and those aren’t good odds to follow. They’re best used as supplementary confirmations of spreads you’ve already picked.
One more note: The ones in italics are extra-tasty.
Atlanta (+2.5) over Detroit
A solid run game at home against the Lions defense, plus points? Yes, please.
Seattle (+0.5) over Buffalo
As long as Hasselbeck is healthy..
Jacksonville (-3.5) over Tennessee
Is an explanation really even necessary?
N.Y.J. (-2.5) over Miami
I can’t believe this line wasn’t higher.
New England (-16.5) over Kansas City
This line is deceiving at first glance, but if you take the time and think about it, you should come to the logical conclusion.
New Orleans (-3.5) over Tampa Bay
Another line that I couldn’t believe wasn’t higher.
Philadelphia (-7.5) over St. Louis
I smell a beat down…
Pittsburgh (-6.5) over Houston
Rashard Mendenhall’s breakout party.
Cincinnati (+0.5) over Baltimore
Wait a second. The Bengals are GETTING points?
Carolina (+9.5) over San Diego
Jump on the Panthers bandwagon now before the lines start shrinking.
San Francisco (+2.5) over Arizona
This was a toss-up really. Could go either way.
Dallas (-3.5) over Cleveland
And we’re SURE the Browns are the real deal, right?
Indianapolis (-9.5) over Chicago
See the Patriots explanation.
Minnesota (+2.5) over Green Bay
Aaron Rodgers’ first start and he’s GETTING points?
Denver (-1.5) over Oakland
