Last week was nothing new for regular players of NFL betting, friendly or Vegas spreads.

My shocker happened as Kansas City lost horribly to Buffalo 41-7 and killed my lock in Week 1 of NFL play.

This week Buffalo hosts Oakland who also won with a 63-yard field goal, tying the longest ever by Janikowski.

You know the drill on this one. Take the East Coast team facing the traveling West Coast team.

At 9-7 last week there is much room for improvement.

Atlanta is at home facing Michael Vick's homecoming after playing poorly, losing to Chicago last week. I like Philadelphia in a close contest, say 33-.30.

My lock pick this week on non-point spreads will be Green Bay versus Carolina. Cam Newton will not fare so well this week against a Super Bowl team defense. Cam Newton can't pull off a win here. Can he?

Kansas City is at Detroit and after last week, you'd be foolish to be picking the Chiefs. On the other hand Detroit looked very solid and taking Matt Stafford to Calvin Johnson each week has some fantasy owners in a steady stream of income this season.

New Orleans will score plenty of points this week again and beat Chicago who simply will not keep up. No way the Saints lose two in a row.

Indianapolis is in serious trouble. Collins is not mobile and another change at quarterback might be in order. The Colts are at home and still have weapons. I will take the healthiest team in Cleveland.

The Vikings lost last week, and are now at home against Tampa Bay. Tough game to pick but the Vikings win a close one at home.

Seattle meets angry Pittsburgh at home. Steelers win this game, but still close.

The Ravens looked like a for sure Super Bowl contender last week and will continue to look impressive beating Tennessee.

The Jets will handle Jacksonville easily at home by 14 points.

Arizona does not travel well to the East Coast for games. They never have. Take the Redskins at home.

Dallas should have won last week. This is a good team that will win 8-9 games this season. This is probably one of those wins. Dallas by four.

New England hosts San Diego in what should be a high-scoring game. Both defenses have trouble stopping anyone. If Rivers can get hot it goes down to a field goal. New England wins, barely.

Houston started off great and hopes to continue posting big offensive numbers playing the Dolphins. The Dolphins need a home win in the worst way already. Houston gets two in a row.

Denver will keep its quarterback controversy but still get a win against Cincinnati.

Giants wrap up Monday night's action with St. Louis at home. These NFC teams just don't lose too many home games. The Giants get this one by a few points.
