I am going to try this and see if it takes off at all. I know I am not the only fan here who likes to place a wager or two on games. I'm planning on posting before each week the spread and over/under for each game followed by my thoughts on games to play. I am hoping that those of you interested will comment with your thoughts and plays. The goal here is to share thoughts/gut reactions/hunches/inside info/etc. in order to help us all potentially win! I am by no means Matthew McConaughey in "Two for the Money" (great movie by the way) but hope to start a weekly discussion about wagering and football. Also, to keep it Bills related, I will always give my prediction on the Bills game and hope you all will as well!
Quick note: I will always post spreads after the home team and over/under following the spread. Also - lines posted will be current as given by scoresandodds.com.

Obviously these lines will change as we get closer to game times, but it's week one and I wanted to try this out. Also, I will assume that like me - not many of you will be jumping in hard with so many unanswered questions this early in the season.
Bal -2 :I think they come out hot at home and start the rivalry with a W.
Buf@KC OVER 40 :Even with the Crimson Elephant and Meatball, the Bills have a tough day with J. Charles...KC runs the ball well and hangs some points. But Buffalo's young receivers show up (along with a special teams TD) to do their part in putting a few TDs and a FG on the Board.
Ind +9 :Even with Peyton out I think Kerry Collins plays just well enough to keep Indy in it (at least within 9 points of it). Also A. Johnson is questionable and I believe A. Foster is still hurting, right?
NYJ -4 :I see the Jets winning this one BIG...don't ask me why - just a hunch/
NE -7 : They could have given the Fish 14 and I still would have taken them.
Thoughts? Your turn...comment away!
