NFL Picks: Week 6

Last week was a rocky start, with the added embarrassment that I flat out forgot to pick the MNF game. Part of me thinks it was kind of a weird, fluky week where games could have turned on a play or two, but most of me knows that I'm probably just ignorant this season. Here's go number one at trying to turn things around.

BEARS (-7.5) over Giants - L
Bengals (-7) BILLS - L
Lions (-2.5) over BROWNS - W
CHIEFS (-7.5) over Raiders - W
VIKINGS (-2.5) over Panthers - L
Steelers (+2.5) over JETS - W
Eagles (-1) over BUCS - W
Packers (-3) over RAVENS - L
Rams (+7) over TEXANS - W
Jags (+26.5) over BRONCOS - W
SEAHAWKS (+13.5) over Titans - L
PATRIOTS (-1) over Saints - W
Cardinals (+11) over 49ERS - L
COWBOYS (-5.5) over Washington - W
CHARGERS (+1.5) over Colts - W

This Week: 9-6
Season: 13-14

NFL Lines: Week 5

Now that I've had a few weeks to let the season settle in and get an idea of who deserves to be rated above whom, let's get down to bizness and make some gambling picks. Between Sunday morning work and Sunday afternoon homework I haven't been able to follow as closely (or drink as much beer) as I'd like to, but it's a gift I have, and one that I won't let excuses get in the way of giving.


Bills (+4) over BROWNS - L
Saints (Pick 'Em) over BEARS - W
Patriots (Pick 'Em) over BENGALS - L
Lions (+7) over PACKERS - L
Chiefs (-2.5) over TITANS - W
Seahawks (-1) over COLTS - L
RAMS (-11) over Jaguars - W
DOLPHINS (-3) over Ravens - L
GIANTS (-1) over Eagles - L
Broncos (-7.5) over COWBOYS - L
49ERS (-6.5) over Texans - W
Chargers (-4.5) over RAIDERS - L

Week: 4-8

Quick thoughts:
*The Seahawks line is a slap in the face, O-Line or not.
*I'm betting on the Broncos until they show me I shouldn't (especially against the Cowboys, although I do like the 'Boys to have a lead at some point.)
*That's a big line for the Packers
*Either the Pats still aren't getting respect (deservedly) or Vegas puts a lot of stock in Wilfork.
