3 units on New Orleans +3 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)

Sunday 01/14 04:30 PM Eastern

3 units on New England +5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)

The Chargers bring in a 14-2 record into this game. All season long they have been a team that has steamrolled through their competition. They have a high octane offense with th...

Seattle at Chicago
Sunday 01/14 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Chicago -8.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Let's get this out of the way quickly: Seattle is awful. OK, maybe not awful compared to the teams staying home for the postseason. But, compared to the playoff teams still arou...

4 units on New Orleans -5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

5 units on Baltimore -4 (-110) (risk 5 to return 9.55)

New York at New England
Sunday 01/07 01:00 PM Eastern

5 units on New England -8.5 (-110) (risk 5 to return 9.55)

The Jets have had one of those overachieving seasons. While we predicted in August that they would eclipse the 6-win mark, we didn't think they'd win 10 games and make it to the...

06

Dallas at Seattle
Saturday 01/06 08:00 PM Eastern

5 units on Dallas +3 (-110) (risk 5 to return 9.55)

There are a couple of reasons why you see Dallas as an underdog in this game. First, it is a road game for them. Second, they looked downright horrible in three of the...

06

Kansas City at Indianapolis
Saturday 01/06 04:30 PM Eastern

4 units on Indianapolis -7 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

We feel there is tremendous line value in this game. All you hear about is how the Colts, 3-4 in their last seven games, can't stop the run. It is true... They can't! Their...

Week 17

31

Green Bay at Chicago
Sunday 12/31 08:15 PM Eastern

3 units on Chicago -3 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)

Chicago at home laying just 3 points? Of course it is because they have home field locked up and Green Bay may have something to play for here. Green Bay is the play here if you...

31

Jacksonville at Kansas City
Sunday 12/31 01:00 PM Eastern

3 units on Game Total UNDER 36.5 -110 (risk 3 to return 5.73)

Jacksonville owns the league's #2 defense (yards) and is #4 in points allowed. Kansas City is ranked 9th in points allowed at 19 per game. At home they are allowing just 17.3 pe...

Pittsburgh at Cincinnati
Sunday 12/31 01:00 PM Eastern

5 units on Pittsburgh +6 (-110) (risk 5 to return 9.55)

Will this be Bill Cowher's last game as a Steelers coach after 15 years? Maybe. If it is, do you think his players want to send him off on a winning note? We do. Cincinnati has ...

31

St. Louis at Minnesota
Sunday 12/31 01:00 PM Eastern

5 units on Minnesota +2.5 (-110) (risk 5 to return 9.55)

We faded St. Louis in a big way a few weeks ago on Monday night when they were getting 6.5 points from the Bears. If you recall that pick, we talked about how bad St. Louis real...

New York at Washington
Saturday 12/30 08:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Washington +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

The Giants are favored here but we think they lose this game. That team is an utter mess. The coach is gone after this season and everyone knows it. He has no respect from his p...

New York at Miami
Monday 12/25 08:30 PM Eastern

3 units on Miami -2.5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)

This line opened at -1 and has climbed to -2.5. Not a big difference really unless it hit -3. We like the side that is getting the action. Miami has been an interesting team thi...

25

Philadelphia at Dallas
Monday 12/25 05:00 PM Eastern

3 units on Philadelphia +7 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)

The Romo/Dallas hype machine has been very up and down since Tony took over the QB reigns eight weeks ago. It hit its peak two weeks ago after Romo had led Dallas to a 6-1 mark....

Indianapolis at Houston
Sunday 12/24 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Houston +9.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

New England at Jacksonville
Sunday 12/24 01:00 PM Eastern

Multiple Picks

This is a big game for Jacksonville as they try to keep their playoff hopes alive. A loss here will pretty much seal their fate. New England has done superb on the defensive sid...

Sunday 12/24 01:00 PM Eastern

3 units on Game Total UNDER 36 -110 (risk 3 to return 5.73)

What an interesting game to watch! We can't understand why this isn't the top primetime matchup of the weekend! Well, ok - it's gotta be the worst on the board. But we aren't lo...

Kansas City at Oakland
Saturday 12/23 08:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Oakland +7 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Kansas City has watched its playoff hopes go up in smoke the last three weeks as the once 7-4 Chiefs have now dropped three straight and stand at 7-7. It would virtually take a ...

Cincinnati at Indianapolis
Monday 12/18 08:30 PM Eastern

4 units on Game Total UNDER 54.5 -110 (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Who can forget last year's matchup between these two teams? There were 943 yards and 92 points. It's all anyone can talk about this week as it relates to this game. Most expec...

17

Denver at Arizona
Sunday 12/17 04:05 PM Eastern

5 units on Arizona +3 (-110) (risk 5 to return 9.55)

Here we have two teams headed in vastly different directions. One is improving, at home, and getting points. The other is heading south, is on the road, and laying points. This ...

17

Jacksonville at Tennessee
Sunday 12/17 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Tennessee +3.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

It has been a tale of two seasons for Tennessee and a tale two locations (home vs. the road) for Jacksonville. Let's start with the Titans. This is a team that started 0-5 and l...

17

New York at Minnesota
Sunday 12/17 01:00 PM Eastern

3 units on Game Total UNDER 41 -110 (risk 3 to return 5.73)

Quick question - who has the 2nd best defense in the NFL? Not many people would answer Minnesota. They just don't come to mind as quickly when thinking defense as does Chicago, ...

17

Pittsburgh at Carolina
Sunday 12/17 01:00 PM Eastern

5 units on Carolina +3 (-110) (risk 5 to return 9.55)

What a dissapointment. Pittsburgh wins the Super Bowl last year and now sits at 6-7 with no hopes for the playoffs. Carolina was supposed to be this year's Super Bowl representa...

17

Tampa Bay at Chicago
Sunday 12/17 01:00 PM Eastern

3 units on Game Total UNDER 34 -110 (risk 3 to return 5.73)

The Chicago offense had a surge early behind Grossman, and early on it looked like the Bears were the most complete team in the NFL. The defense has been utterly dominating for ...

14

San Francisco at Seattle
Thursday 12/14 08:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Game Total UNDER 40.5 -110 (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Tonight's game will feature steady winds of 30-45 MPH with gusts to 65 MPH, along with rain. This will turn into a ground war with passing and kicking virtually impossible. Thro...

Week 14

11

Chicago at St. Louis
Monday 12/11 08:30 PM Eastern

3 units on Chicago -6.5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)

St. Louis has to be the worst of any teams to have won five games this season. If you look at them staistically, perhaps you will not arrive at that conclusion. But if you look ...

10

Denver at San Diego
Sunday 12/10 04:15 PM Eastern

3 units on Denver +7.5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)

Everyone loves San Diego, and the public likes teams that can score. San Diego has that Superbowl look about them as they have rattled off six straight wins. We believe in them,...

10

Seattle at Arizona
Sunday 12/10 04:05 PM Eastern

4 units on Arizona +3.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

After losing eight in a row one might expect that this Arizona team would have packed it in. What was supposed to be a playoff contending team tanked in the early going. But to ...

10

Atlanta at Tampa Bay
Sunday 12/10 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Tampa Bay +3.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Did Atlanta turn its season around last week, or will we see more of a team that just can't get it done? They were on the verge of going down yet again, but Washington leading 1...

10

Indianapolis at Jacksonville
Sunday 12/10 01:00 PM Eastern

5 units on Jacksonville +2 (-110) (risk 5 to return 9.55)

We've faded the Colts in both of their losses this year and we look for the hatrick here. Indianapolis enters this game with their typical good 10-2 record, while Jacksonville e...

10

Minnesota at Detroit
Sunday 12/10 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Minnesota +1.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Minnesota may end up going with Tarvaris Jackson at QB this week and it would be the right place as they face one of the worst defenses in the NFL. The Detroit defense will be w...

10

Oakland at Cincinnati
Sunday 12/10 01:00 PM Eastern

5 units on Oakland +11 (-110) (risk 5 to return 9.55)

Ready for the shocker stat of the week? Oakland has one of the best defenses in the league! Yes it's true. Read on. Last year Oakland was horrible and they started 2006 the same...

10

Philadelphia at Washington
Sunday 12/10 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Washington +1 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

It's amazing how the public perception changes week to week. Philadelphia was left for dead after McNabb went down and they get killed by the Colts. Then Jeff Garcia comes in an...

Week 13

04

Carolina at Philadelphia
Monday 12/04 08:30 PM Eastern

3 units on Philadelphia +3 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)

This game sets up nicely for bettors. Philadelphia, so reliant on their quarterback, losses Donovan McNabb two weeks ago. In that game, they played bad and lost outright as a do...

03

Atlanta at Washington
Sunday 12/03 01:00 PM Eastern

2 units on Washington -1 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

We usually like these teams that have looked bad recently to come back and have a strong game. We looked for a reason to back Atlanta in their down-and-out state, but we just co...

03

Indianapolis at Tennessee
Sunday 12/03 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Tennessee +7.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

The Colts are on their way to another season notching a very high win total. They have had to do it without much of a running game and a bad run defense. But this isn't the same...

03

Kansas City at Cleveland
Sunday 12/03 01:00 PM Eastern

5 units on Cleveland +5.5 (-110) (risk 5 to return 9.55)

We keep coming back to this Cleveland team. We know we'll get the "are you crazy" mail on this one, especially after last week. But one of the realities of betting on sports is ...

03

Minnesota at Chicago
Sunday 12/03 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Game Total UNDER 36 -110 (risk 4 to return 7.64)

It will feel good for Chicago to be back home after three games on the road. The one thing that made this team lethal earlier, outside of their defense of course, was the outsta...

03

San Diego at Buffalo
Sunday 12/03 01:00 PM Eastern

3 units on Buffalo +6 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)

San Diego has that Superbowl look about them right now. They are taking care of business week after week and they top most people's list of top teams. Buffalo suddenly has won 3...

Week 12

27

Green Bay at Seattle
Monday 11/27 08:30 PM Eastern

4 units on Green Bay +10.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Green Bay comes in off a 0-35 spanking at the hands of the Patriots. Brett Favre went down in that game and Aaaron Rodgers was thrown to the wolves, going 4 for 12 for 32 yards ...

26

Cincinnati at Cleveland
Sunday 11/26 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Cleveland +3.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

This will be the third week of the last four that we have been on Cleveland. Why do we continue to back this apparently ugly dog? They continue to be underrated and they have ...

26

Jacksonville at Buffalo
Sunday 11/26 01:00 PM Eastern

3 units on Game Total UNDER 35.5 -110 (risk 3 to return 5.73)

Jacksonville strolls into Buffalo with the league's third best defense in both points and yards allowed. They've been a bit under the radar on this front as the media prefers to...

26

New Orleans at Atlanta
Sunday 11/26 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on New Orleans +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

You have to wonder about the mindset of the Atlanta Falcons right now. A team that started out looking like a possible Superbowl contender, and a couple of Michael Vick games th...

26

Pittsburgh at Baltimore
Sunday 11/26 01:00 PM Eastern

2 units on Pittsburgh +3 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

Everyone is wondering what happened to the Steelers this year. Where is the Steel Curtain defense? Where is the offense? It's a mystery to most but we think we have the answer -...

23

Denver at Kansas City
Thursday 11/23 08:00 PM Eastern

3 units on Kansas City PICK (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)

Denver started the year looking like they had the best defense in the entire NFL, allowing two touchdowns in the first 6 games. Kansas City got off to a poor start at 0-2, but h...

23

Tampa Bay at Dallas
Thursday 11/23 04:15 PM Eastern

2 units on Dallas -11 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

As we stated last week, Dallas was the better team vs. Indianapolis. It was confirmed as they beat the undefeated Colts. While just 6-4 in record, we believe Dallas is one of th...

23

Miami at Detroit
Thursday 11/23 12:30 PM Eastern

2 units on Detroit +2.5 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

Forgive us if we are not yet believers in the Miami Dolphins. We know they are the talk of the town having won three straight games. But let's look at those three games. They be...

Week 11

19

Indianapolis at Dallas
Sunday 11/19 04:15 PM Eastern

5 units on Indianapolis +1.5 (-110) (risk 5 to return 9.55)

This becomes the time of year where everyone begins to think about the Colts going undefeated. They have had lots of close calls this year, and again last week pulled out a 1 po...

19

Detroit at Arizona
Sunday 11/19 04:05 PM Eastern

5 units on Detroit +2.5 (-110) (risk 5 to return 9.55)

Is Arizona favored here? What!?! This team is 1-8. After seeing them basically not even try last week, we are convinced they have packed it in. They were in a good spot last wee...

19

Minnesota at Miami
Sunday 11/19 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Minnesota +3.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Miami has done very well the past two weeks. They went into Chicago and smacked down the undefeated Bears 31-13 as a 13.5 point dog. Huge win (but more on that later). Then they...

19

New England at Green Bay
Sunday 11/19 01:00 PM Eastern

3 units on Green Bay +6 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)

We're not sure anyone would of thought New England coming off a loss would lose at home in their next game as a double digit favorite. It is just as likely that not many would t...

19

St. Louis at Carolina
Sunday 11/19 01:00 PM Eastern

3 units on St. Louis +7 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)

It never ceases to amaze me how linesmakers and the public continue to fail to adjust to reality. Carolina, the preseason darling, can do no wrong in their minds. What we see, h...

19

Tennessee at Philadelphia
Sunday 11/19 01:00 PM Eastern

3 units on Philadelphia -13 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)

As underdog bettors, we rarely lay double digits. We did it a couple of weeks ago with our 5-unit play on Jacksonville and we have spotted another opportunity here. There have...

Week 10

13

Tampa Bay at Carolina
Monday 11/13 08:30 PM Eastern

2 units on Game Total UNDER 37 -110 (risk 2 to return 3.82)

These two teams played to 50 points in week three. So why is this total set at 37? It almost seems like a trap. In that first game, Carolina scored a touchdown on the third offe...

12

Dallas at Arizona
Sunday 11/12 04:15 PM Eastern

3 units on Arizona +7 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)

Sometimes when you see a team that has struggled, their output is much less than what you expected when the season began and you see them as a home dog of a TD, it makes sense a...

12

Denver at Oakland
Sunday 11/12 04:05 PM Eastern

2 units on Oakland +9.5 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

This one will take some heart to play. Oakland? Yes. While your gut tells you "no way," history tells us to back the down-and-out Raiders. This is a perfect contrarian spot. Den...

12

Baltimore at Tennessee
Sunday 11/12 01:00 PM Eastern

3 units on Tennessee +7 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)

There is nothing more motivating than getting your lunch handed to you as a professional player, something you do for a living, something you take great pride in. The humiliatio...

Cleveland at Atlanta
Sunday 11/12 01:00 PM Eastern

5 units on Cleveland +9 (-110) (risk 5 to return 9.55)

This is another one of those games that look like a complete mismatch, as Atlanta has a potent running game and Cleveland can't stop the run. If it were that simple, everyone wo...

New Orleans at Pittsburgh
Sunday 11/12 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Pittsburgh -4.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been a major dissapointment, to say the least. Who would have guessed they'd be sitting at 2-6 right now? Not many people. We think they have been u...

06

Oakland at Seattle
Monday 11/06 08:30 PM Eastern

2 units on Game Total UNDER 37 -110 (risk 2 to return 3.82)

The weather in Seattle tonight will be horrendous. They are expecting anywhere from 3-6" of rain and it won't just be the rain that will cause problems, it will be the wind. The...

05

Indianapolis at New England
Sunday 11/05 08:15 PM Eastern

2 units on New England -3 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

What a matchup. The 7-0 Colts dismantled the supposed "great" Denver defense last week, winning at Mile High. New England, flying under the radar for most of the year, absolutel...

05

Minnesota at San Francisco
Sunday 11/05 04:05 PM Eastern

3 units on San Francisco +5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)

It would be very easy to look at this game from a statistical standpoint and feel comfortable making a play on Minnesota. By the same token, it would feel very uncomfortable mak...

Dallas at Washington
Sunday 11/05 01:00 PM Eastern

3 units on Game Total UNDER 37.5 -110 (risk 3 to return 5.73)

New Orleans at Tampa Bay
Sunday 11/05 01:00 PM Eastern

2 units on Tampa Bay +1 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

Baltimore exposed New Orleans last week. We were on the Ravens strong for a bunch of reasons, one being that New Orleans was a bit overrated (and remain so). They had built up a...

Tennessee at Jacksonville
Sunday 11/05 01:00 PM Eastern

5 units on Jacksonville -9.5 (-110) (risk 5 to return 9.55)

Tennessee has done a nice job in their last two games, keeping the oddsmakers grounded from making Jacksonville a completely prohibitive favorite here. After week five, Tennesse...

4 units on Minnesota +2 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

One of our two big 4-star plays last week was on the Vikings getting 6.5 against the Seahawks. They went out an trounced Seattle 31-13. Are they getting respect now? Not enough....

Dallas at Carolina
Sunday 10/29 08:15 PM Eastern

5 units on Dallas +5.5 (-110) (risk 5 to return 9.55)

Perfect set up here. Carolina, starting the year 0-2 without Steve Smith, won four straight with him back in the lineup before losing a very close game last week vs. Cincinnati....

Baltimore at New Orleans
Sunday 10/29 01:00 PM Eastern

3 units on Baltimore +2 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)

Tampa Bay at New York
Sunday 10/29 01:00 PM Eastern

3 units on New York -9 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)

I don't often pick big favorites but I like the Giants a lot this Sunday at home against the Bucs. The G-Men are a top 5 team in my opinion right now. Their offense is great and...

Arizona at Oakland
Sunday 10/22 04:15 PM Eastern

4 units on Oakland +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Minnesota at Seattle
Sunday 10/22 04:15 PM Eastern

4 units on Minnesota +6.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Seattle escaped with a victory last week against St. Louis. It was the second straight game without Shaun Alexander and their second-straight ATS loss. They again will be withou...

Carolina at Cincinnati
Sunday 10/22 01:00 PM Eastern

2 units on Carolina +3 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

The Panthers started slow losing their first two games in 2006. They faced solid competition in Atlanta and Minnesota in those two games and they were without Steve Smith. Since...

22

Detroit at New York
Sunday 10/22 01:00 PM Eastern

3 units on Detroit +3.5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)

The Jets are favored here because they are at home. But, is that really a good reason? They are just 1-2 at home this season and they haven't won back-to-back home games since 2...

22

Pittsburgh at Atlanta
Sunday 10/22 01:00 PM Eastern

3 units on Atlanta +3 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)

Is Atlanta really a home dog here? Classic public overreaction has led to a line that is off. Last week, Atlanta got spanked by the Giants and Pittsburgh laid a whopping on the ...

Chicago at Arizona
Monday 10/16 08:30 PM Eastern

2 units on Chicago -11.5 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

This one on paper looks simple, right? Well, yes it does. Chicago is so dominant from a statistical perspective that this game should be a big-time blowout. How good have the Be...

Oakland at Denver
Sunday 10/15 08:15 PM Eastern

2 units on Game Total UNDER 36.5 -110 (risk 2 to return 3.82)

2 units on Game Total UNDER 36.5 -110 (risk 2 to return 3.82)

This Kansas City team has done a complete 180 under new head coach Herm Edwards. The past few years under Dick Vermeil, this team had an unstoppable offense and a very porous an...

Sunday 10/15 01:00 PM Eastern

2 units on Game Total OVER 43 -110 (risk 2 to return 3.82)

The battle for Lone Star State supremacy goes off at Texas stadium on Sunday. It probably won't be much of a battle considering how bad the Houston Texas are. There's a little l...

New York at Atlanta
Sunday 10/15 01:00 PM Eastern

2 units on New York +3 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

The Falcons are much improved this season, especially on defense. They have given up just 10.5 points per game thus far. But, their offense has not taken that next step. They ar...

Baltimore at Denver
Monday 10/09 08:30 PM Eastern

4 units on Baltimore +5.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Folks, I honestly don't understand this line. Denver favored by 5.5 points against the Ravens? I don't get it. I liked the Ravens at +4 so I certainly like them at +5.5. In a ga...

Pittsburgh at San Diego
Sunday 10/08 08:15 PM Eastern

4 units on Game Total UNDER 37.5 -110 (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Pittsburgh's off a national TV game in which they lost and gave up 28 points. So what? That was the Bengals. Prior to that they gave up 17 and 9 points. This defense is still gr...

New York at Jacksonville
Sunday 10/08 04:05 PM Eastern

1 unit on New York +7 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1.91)

In my preseason predictions, I recommended taking the Jets to get over 6 wins. They are on pace to get eight. And, barring some bad coaching last week, they could be 3-1 and com...

Miami at New England
Sunday 10/08 01:00 PM Eastern

2 units on New England -10 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

Yeah, Miami is that bad. This team lost to Buffalo and Houston and barely beat Tennessee! Houston and Tennssee? Come on! As I've said before, not a big fan of Daunte Culpepper. ...

Tampa Bay at New Orleans
Sunday 10/08 01:00 PM Eastern

1 unit on Tampa Bay +6.5 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1.91)

When it looks like it can't get any worse for a team, back 'em. Tampa's in a good spot for a cover here. They have been outscored on average 9 - 22 so far. The first two weeks t...

Washington at New York
Sunday 10/08 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Game Total OVER 45 -110 (risk 4 to return 7.64)

This total started at 43.5 and has moved to 45. I think it's still too low. New York is a story of extremes. Statistically speaking, they own one of the top offenses and worst d...

2 units on Oakland +3 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

I know, I know. Making this pick will make you sick to your stomach. Are we really backing the Raiders? Yes. They have become the laughing stock of the league after two horrible...

New England at Cincinnati
Sunday 10/01 04:15 PM Eastern

2 units on New England +6 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

Man, Cincinnati looks good. They remind me of the Colts of the past few years: A scary offense that propels them to big victories over any and all comers. Think bettors and line...

Arizona at Atlanta
Sunday 10/01 01:00 PM Eastern

3 units on Atlanta -7 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)

This game won't be pleasant for the Arizona Cardinals. Mired in a QB controversy after Kurt Warner's error-prone play thus far, they are walking into the Lion's Den here. Atlant...

3 units on Game Total UNDER 41.5 -110 (risk 3 to return 5.73)

Wow. The Saints delivered as promised on Monay Night in what I thought would be their "Super Bowl" for 2006. Now, off a shortened week, and back on the road, I expect a big letd...

3 units on Kansas City -7 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73)

The Chiefs, a top-scoring team from a year ago, are off two terrible showings. They lost 10-23 to Cincinnati and 6-9 to Denver. They come off a bye and I like teams off a bye th...

Atlanta at New Orleans
Monday 09/25 08:30 PM Eastern

2 units on New Orleans +4.5 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

Atlanta has really impressed me this year. I have bashed them repeatedly the past two years when I felt they were vastly overrated. I felt that the public gave too much credit t...

Denver at New England
Sunday 09/24 08:15 PM Eastern

2 units on Denver +7 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

Philadelphia at San Francisco
Sunday 09/24 04:15 PM Eastern

3 units on Game Total OVER 42 -110 (risk 3 to return 5.73)

San Francisco was the worst defensive team in the league last season. Against Arizona in week one, they looked like they wanted to lay claim to it again this year as they gave u...

Jacksonville at Indianapolis
Sunday 09/24 01:00 PM Eastern

2 units on Indianapolis -7 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

What a performance by Jacksonville on Monday night. This team looks to be for real. I do think they are improved but I think they are in a tough spot here. Let's not get too cau...

New York at Buffalo
Sunday 09/24 01:00 PM Eastern

2 units on New York +6 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

As I stated in my preseason over/under predictions, I don't think the Jets were going to be as bad as many people thought this season. So far they have looked much better than t...

Washington at Houston
Sunday 09/24 01:00 PM Eastern

2 units on Washington -4 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

What to make of Washington? Prior to the preseason they were picked as Super Bowl contenders. After a horrible preseason, many people had stuck a fork in them. They lose in week...

2 units on Seattle -7 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

The mighty Seahawks struggled in game one. We were on Detroit in that game as we thought the Hawks would come out flat and the Lions pumped up. It played out perfectly with Seat...

2 units on Green Bay +2 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

Are my eyes deceiving me? Are the New Orleans Saints 2 point ROAD favorites? Yes they are. After defeating a mistake-prone Cleveland Browns team, the Saints are riding high. Gre...

Tampa Bay at Atlanta
Sunday 09/17 01:00 PM Eastern

2 units on Game Total UNDER 36 -110 (risk 2 to return 3.82)

That Falcons showed last week that they have found some defense. The addition of John Abraham has really shored up what was an average squad. Sure, the absence of Steve Smith af...

1 unit on Game Total UNDER 43 -110 (risk 1 to return 1.91)

The total in this game has moved down from an opening 44 number to 43. I think it is still too high. We have a San Diego offense that has just switched quarterbacks and essentia...

2 units on Game Total UNDER 48.5 -110 (risk 2 to return 3.82)

Eli vs. Peyton. This one will be a fun game to watch and not only because it pits brothers against each other at QB (first time ever). It' will be great because it features two ...

2 units on Dallas -2.5 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

Dallas is the media magnet right now. All eyes are on T.O. and the Big Tuna. When will T.O. blow up? Not sure. But hamstring injuries are REALLY bad for wide receivers. I am not...

Atlanta at Carolina

2 units on Carolina -5 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

Let me get this out of the way: Steve Smith will play. That's what all his teammates have told reporters. I am assuming he will be in this game and at full-speed. Carolina is th...

New Orleans at Cleveland
Sunday 09/10 01:00 PM Eastern

2 units on Cleveland -3 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

New Orleans has to be excited about their offense with the addition of Drew Brees and Reggie Bush as well as offensive-minded Sean Payton as their head coach. If Deuce McCallist...

2 units on Detroit +6 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

Seattle shocked many pundits last year, making it to the Super Bowl and giving the Steelers a run for their money. That "unknown team from the Northwest" is not under the radar ...

Indianapolis was 0-5 in the preseason last year and this season they are 1-2 so far. No surprise as Tony Dungy is just 18-23 in preseason play. Marvin Lewis is 7-4 and his team ...

Denver at Arizona
Thursday 08/31 10:00 PM Eastern

2 units on Denver +3.5 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)

Oakland at Seattle
Thursday 08/31 10:00 PM Eastern

1 unit on Oakland -1 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1.91)

Well, Art Shell has shown us he is playing for keeps. The Raiders are 4-0 so far this preseason as their defense has held opponents to just 8 points per game. Shell is no dummy ...

2 units on Game Total OVER 33.5 -110 (risk 2 to return 3.82)

Chicago's vaunted defense isn't exerting itself this preseason. Outside of one good showing against San Diego, they gave up 51 combined points to San Francisco and Arizona. Clev...
