Lines taken from BET US
Pittsburgh (PK) vs. Baltimore – The Ravens can never seem to get over the hump versus the Steelers and I don’t think that will change this week.
Detroit (PK) vs. Tampa Bay – Plenty of hype surrounding these two young teams, the Lions can overcome that vicious Tampa Bay home-field advantage.
Atlanta (-3.5) vs. Chicago – There is some buzz about the Bears upsetting the Falcons this week, who are a popular Super Bowl pick. I just don’t see it.
Buffalo (+6) vs. Kansas City – The Chiefs aren’t returning to the playoffs this year and the Bills will be better than people expect.
Houston (-8.5) vs. Indianapolis – The Colts are a one man team and that man is hurt.
St. Louis (+4.5) vs. Philadelphia – Tons of pressure on Philadelphia out of the gate, against an improving young St. Louis team on the road sounds like an upset to me.
Cleveland (-7.5) vs. Cincinnati – The Browns should get off to a strong start this year considering their schedule.
Tennessee (+1) vs. Jacksonville – Watch out for the Titans in the suddenly depleted AFC South.
Washington (+3) vs. New York Giants – Jersey’s JV team gets off to an ugly start.
Carolina (+7.5) vs. Arizona – The Panthers will keep this tight and maybe steal a late win to kick off the Cam Newton era.
San Francisco (-5) vs. Seattle – Man, I hate the NFC West.
Minnesota (+8.5) vs. San Diego – Upset alert.
New York Jets (-5) vs. Dallas Cowboys – The Cowboys are too banged up to pull the upset in this one.
New England (-7.5) vs. Miami – The game would be blacked out if the 15,000 Patriots fans didn’t show up.
Oakland (+3) vs. Denver – Crazy to have faith in the Raiders? Against Denver, I don’t think so.
