13-3 with seven in a row in the afternoon got me to a respectable 47-17 with no points and a healthy 36-28 against the line this upset prone season.

Great upset picks of Cincinnati and Detroit fueled the point spread tank to a winning 9-7 this past week.

In Week 5 of the NFL 2011 regular season NFL Mikee will continue to beat the Vegas line with solid high percentage plays.

The Jets, traveling to New England are underdogs I'm sure, with major offensive line problems and a vanishing running game.

New England was not going to lose to the Raiders last week, while the week before, the Raiders slammed the Jets. This is too easy. New England wins this game and covers the points.

Speaking of the Raiders, they will lose to Houston and fall lower in that AFC West race. Houston is for real and will win their division. Houston also covers this one.

Philadelphia must feel a bit shell shocked as they travel to Buffalo to meet the Bills. Buffalo will drop a second game in a row and fall to 3-2. The Eagles being 2-3 is pretty shocking. Philly covers up to five.

Can someone offer an explanation as to what's wrong with the Vikings?  How do you like Donovan the Underachiever so far? The Vikings will break the losing streak this week only because Arizona travels East so dreadfully. Vikings break loose by a touchdown in this one.

Green Bay is unbeaten and plays Atlanta in a road contest on Sunday. You have to pick two games that the Packers will lose in the regular season. It will have to be a very good team that is at home.

Atlanta got derailed on offense last week against Seattle and this is really a must win early in the season. Get as many points as you can and take the Falcons this week in a big upset. This is a big call!

Kansas City is on the road facing winless Indianapolis who has all these dropped fantasy receivers on their team. No one can get Dallas Clark or Austin Collie the ball. Kansas City is the team that whatever I pick, it will be wrong.

Kansas City fans will be happy to know I have the Colts this weekend, up to three points.

The Giants are my lock pick this week against Seattle, whatever the line, take the Giants and the under in this game.

Avoid the over this week in the Green Bay/Atlanta game this week. As I earlier stated, the Falcons get a low scoring upset here.

New Orleans will outscore Cam Newton and the Panthers by plenty as this Carolina defense needs another good draft and some pass-rushing help. Take New Orleans by 8-9 points.

Jacksonville hosts Cincinnati who at 2-2 is looking competitive in that tough division of theirs. I like the Bengals to win a road game here. Bengals by a late field goal steals this one away from the identity-less Jaguars.

I see a huge payback game coming from Matt Hasselbeck and the Titans against the Steelers this weekend. Plus Big Ben is hobbling around. Take the Titans and give the points, however few they may be.

Tampa Bay can put a cap on the division championship hopes and try to get a wild card this season at 10-6. The 49ers are fast tracking themselves to a division title and will not lose this home game. Look for Gore to pound the ball, and Crabtree to get healthier. San Francisco wins a very competitive game by 4 points.

San Diego gets to Denver early and this will not be one of 'those" games. Chargers score early and often in a no-brainer bet on the visitor.

On Monday, look for Chicago to dominate Detroit unexpectedly, as the Lions have some turnover issues on the national ESPN stage. Chicago will get points as the visitor. Imagine that! Take the Bears in a big bonus upset pick by NFL Mikee.
