There's a theme this weekend and it should be obvious by now. Overrated teams continue to get too much respect. Sure, Buffalo started slowly and Seattle came out of the gate on a tear. But recent history has told a different story. Seattle is 3-4 SU and 1-6 ATS in their last seven as the public still remembers their strong start out of the gates. Buffalo started the 2004 campaign 1-5 SU but they've since gone 3-1 both SU and ATS. As was the case last week in the Buffalo/St. Louis game, Buffalo is the better team here and getting a full five points. What a nice pre-Christmas gift for us. The Seahawks are forced to start Jerry Rice (love him but his time has come and gone) due to Koren Robinson's supspension. Additionally, Matt Hasselbeck remains banged up and may not play today. That would make this even a better pick. Either way, the Seahawks will try to throw a lot of Shaun Alexander at the Bills. Alexander leads the NFL in rushing with 1151 yards and 10 touchdowns. But, I expect the Bills' sixth ranked defense to keep him controlled enough. Ladies and Gentlemen, Drew Bledsoe and the Bills are playing with a new found confidence. Don't get in the way of it. The Bills +5 for three stars (3%) and two stars (2%) on the straight up Bufalo win.
