Cleveland (+7.5) over WASHINGTON - It's a lot to ask, but I just need Cleveland to take advantage of the Skins' non-existant secondary this week.
Indianapolis (-1.5) over GREEN BAY - I really think the 4th quarter of the Texans game was the turning point.
Dallas (-7) over ST. LOUIS - I think Dallas is going to play a statement game after a tumultuous week.
MIAMI (-2.5) over Baltimore - I think Baltimore is settling in for the season we expected.
CINCINNATI (+10) over Pittsburgh - Just because it's their turn.
New York Jets (-3) over OAKLAND - Yes, it's a long trip west, but Oakland is HORRIBLE.
BUFFALO (+1) over San Diego - The team that I believe will win the AFC East getting points at home against a team making a long trip east. Sign me up.
WASHINGTON (-7.5) over Cleveland - I have to bet again on my 'Skins. And I can't imagine they'll let this be a trap game like last week, especially since Cleveland showed signs of life on Monday night (albeit counterfeit signs of life)
San Francisco (+11) over NEW YORK GIANTS - The Niners soundly beat the Eagles for three quarters last week and get a banged up Eli this week. I still like the Giants, but not by that much.
CHICAGO (-3.5) over Minnesota - Soon Bill Simmons will be talking about the "Brad Childress face."
The Magic 8 Ball was brought back solidly to Earth last week by an 0-fer-5 week. It's probably harder to do that than it is to pick 5 games correctly.
OAKLAND (+3) over New York Jets - "My sources say yes." (Raiders will beat the spread)
San Diego (-1) over BUFFALO - "My answer is no." (Bills won't beat spread)
WASHINGTON (+7.5) over Cleveland - "My sources say yes." (Redskins will beat the spread)
NEW YORK GIANTS (-11) over San Francisco - "Signs point to yes." (Giants will beat the spread)
Minnesota (+3.5) over CHICAGO - "No." (Bears won't beat the spread)
My return to the cellar appears more imminent with each passing week.
HOUSTON (-9.5) over Detroit - Yeah, the Lions are that bad, plus the Texans can score.
Indy (-1.5) over GREEN BAY - The Colts are back.
NY Jets (-3) over OAKLAND - Favre and the gang over the rudderless Raiders.
Pittsburgh (-10) over CINCINNATI - Risky on the size of the spread, but the Bengals have looked really terrible lately.
