Another week in the books and my picks are still making money. However, there was no comment traffic on the post last week. This is unfortunate because last week was a week to bring home some cash. If you like to read these posts, or like to have fun wagering on games, please contribute to the conversation so we can share in the prosperity. Let's review my picks from last week (http://www.buffalorumblings.com/2012/9/14/3331532/what-do-you-like-this-weekend-week-2):
NE-14** (L) - Well that was embarrassing.
IND+1.5* (W) - Luck got the outright victory and put a few bucks in our pockets.
KC@BUF OVER 45** (W) - This one didn't cover the way I expected it to, but a win is a win
BAL+2*** (W) - Again, covered by a point...this one looked too good to be true and in the end it almost was.
CIN-7***: (Push) - You win some you lose some...sometimes you don't do either.
HOU-7** (W) - Covered by a mile thanks to Blaine Gabbert going down.
ATL-3* (W) - I got fairly nervous about this one before kickoff as all my buddies were going Denver...but three Manning picks later my nerves were calmed. As I wrote last week, the Georgia Dome is tough for visiting teams.
Week 2 record: 5-1-1. Season record: 9-3-1...9-3-1 PEOPLE!!! That's not bad $$$ This week's lines and my picks after the jump.
What I like this weekend:
CAR-3*: I don't love this...but I, like many folks out there making picks, like the emotional set-up for the Panthers. The giants are going into a game banged up, on a short week and against a team that is shoeing some promise off a slow start. I like Cam and the gang to cover tonight.
STL+7.5**: Da Bears looked downright awful Thursday night. While I expect them to rebound a bit at home, there is simply no way a Forte-less Bears Squad beats a Rams team showing signs of life by more than a TD. If this line stays 7 or above, I'll love it.
BUF-3***: Buffalo finally finds their opportunity win back a little road courage...
NYJ-2.5*: I hate betting for a division rival...but they will redeem their play from last week against a brutal situation in Miami (even with Reggie Bush looking like an actual RB)
IND-3**: Love Luck beating up on the helpless Jaguars at home in Lucas Oil Stadium.
PHI-3.5**: Don't believe what you saw in NE last weekend. The Cards are still the Cards...PERIOD.
DEN+2**: Nobody comes back from bad play like Peyton. Looks to be a great game.
SEA+3.5**: In Seattle's Super Bowl on MNF, I like the home team. I see this team playing a wild game and winning outright.
There you have it folks. It's a laundry list this week...but winning gives you a little more play money and allows you to be a bit riskier. PLEASE comment on these with your picks, thoughts, etc. Let's leave our bookies' pockets empty!
