What do you like this weekend? Week 1

And they're off...

Welcome back to another year of football wagering fun and excitement. Hope springs eternal for both our beloved Bills and our wallets! The books are salivating at week one as many folks have been waiting all off-season to get back to their favorite past-time (NFL betting) and will go overboard this week to make up for it. I share with you your new name for week one - CAUTION! Be careful and ease into it. Gently approach the season and don't start off in a big hole. Now onto the lines and picks.

As you will recall from last season. I typically use for lines and numbers. This year, I will support SB nation and use: I always put the line after the home team followed by the OVER/UNDER. I will always give a Bills play. And, share a star rating to show confidence level of the pick (i.e. more stars means more confidence).

My Week 1 Picks:

IND-10****: It just doesn't seem fair that the Oakland Raiders have to open the season on the road against the one team, in my opinion, that shows true promise in the sense that their building a sustained winner (not just a flash in the pan like Seattle or Houston - again, just my opinion). Look for Pryor to throw something like 24 picks in the one game that over 50% of people in survival pools have picked as their game this week.

CIN@CHI OVER 41.5**: Both offenses got better this offseason. I like a competitive shootout in this game with a final in the 27-24 range. Too tough to pick a side in this one.

TB-3**: Two words...GENO and SMITH...hahahaha poor Jets.

NE@BUF OVER 51***: The Brady Bunch should be able to hang some big points against our current dbs. While the mass-holes may actually hang all 51 themselves, I do expect EJ, CJ, TJ and SJ to make some plays and put up a couple of touchdowns.

Well there you go. It's only four picks form me this week. Always slow to start. For those of you who are reading this series for the first time, here's how it have to comment now and share your thoughts and picks. The goal is that we utilize our collective betting genius to bankrupt our bookies!

Good luck this week and GO BILLS!!!
