Week 3 of the NFL season sees me at 18-14 versus the line and 22-10 with no points.
The New England Patriots win against the Buffalo Bills, no problem. Now let us look at 8.5 points. Buffalo is at home. Strike one. Buffalo is scoring a ton of points. Strike two. This is a division game for two teams tied for the lead. Strike three. Take Buffalo with 8-9 points, easy.
The Miami Dolphins visit the Cleveland Browns at 0-2 for the year. If this is a repeat of last season, Miami will win on the road. This is not last season, however, and Cleveland looks pretty good. Still, I have to believe Miami will not lose three games in a row. Tough one, huh? Try the Dolphins as a slight dog.
The Minnesota Vikings are a home underdog by 3.5 points to the Detroit Lions? Did I just say that? Forget about how hot Stafford is and count on the pride of the Minnesota defense to keep this game very close. Take the Vikings with the points.
The New Orleans Saints are favored at home over Houston by 3.5. If this is the Texans year, they win this game. The Saints could easily make it to the Super Bowl if the Green Bay Packers were not around. Houston is still not proven under fire. Saints by 3.5.
The New York Giants/Philadelphia Eagles games are always pretty close division contests. This spread seems a bit inflated, especially with Vick being nicked up already with a concussion, aches, and pain. Try the Giants in this one.
The official Cam Newton Wins a Game club starts up against the Jacksonville Jaguars this weekend, so be sure to watch the fun.
The Atlanta Falcons should wake up this week and take care of business. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are not ready to knock off New Orleans or Atlanta from the upper tier of this division. Atlanta by only 2 points.
Green Bay is at Chicago in a twice-a-year matchup that never seems to work out for the Bears, Get the hint? Packers will cover this one by 4.
