NFL picks

It’s time for week four of the NFL season.

Although I haven’t been using this blog much for showing my picks, I decided to allow a glimpse into the way my brain thinks.

So without further ado, here are my football picks for this week (note, I used for my picks, the spread and the graphic below: It’s a great site for keeping track of your football pool).


Atlanta Falcons at Carolina PanthersLine: Panthers by 6 1/2Panthers
Minnesota Vikings at Tennessee TitansLine: Titans by 2 1/2Titans
Houston Texans at Jacksonville JaguarsLine: Jaguars by 7 1/2Jaguars
San Francisco 49ers at New Orleans SaintsLine: Saints by 5 1/2Saints
Arizona Cardinals at NY JetsLine: Jets by 2 1/2Cardinals
Green Bay Packers at Tampa Bay BuccaneersLine: Buccaneers by 1 1/2Packers
Denver Broncos at Kansas City ChiefsLine: Broncos by 8 1/2Broncos
Cleveland Browns at Cincinnati BengalsLine: Bengals by 3 1/2Bengals
San Diego Chargers at Oakland RaidersLine: Chargers by 7 1/2Chargers
Buffalo Bills at St.Louis RamsLine: Bills by 8 1/2Bills
Washington Redskins at Dallas CowboysLine: Cowboys by 11 1/2Cowboys
Philadelphia Eagles at Chicago BearsLine: Eagles by 2 1/2Eagles
Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh SteelersLine: Steelers by 6 1/2Steelers


The games I’m most worried about are:

• Falcons/Panthers: Carolina have squeaked out their two wins, and now they’re expected to win by 7 points?

• Broncos/Chiefs: just because the Chiefs are playing at home and for pride, so 9 points is a large gap for Denver to win by,

• Bills/Raiders: same reason as above, and

• Brown/Bengals: just because boths teams are so bad, and now one is favoured to win by more than a field goal?
