Last week somehow ended up 3-3. 40-62-3 for the season, and yes Doug it is becoming obvious that I know nothing about college football. But I am man enough to admit it! So this week we will be sticking to the pros.
In an upset special I like Cleveland +9 Â½ against the Steelers. The Steelers did look dominant on MNF against the Ravens. But Cleveland is a lot better offensively than Baltimore and the Browns have a lot to prove in light of the 34-7 licking the Steelers laid on them opening day. Also the Steelers have to get up for a rival on a short week after facing another division rival and I think this is a spot where it will catch up with them. . I donâ€™t think the Brownies will win outright, but I see this being a tight contest.
New Orleans -11 vs. St. Louis: The Rams are probably the worst team in football and the Saints have really caught fire after a 0-4 start.
Detroit + 1 Â½ against Arizona: The Lions have been perhaps the biggest surprise in the league, but for some reason the American gambler doesnâ€™t think too highly of the Lions. This seems about as big of a sucker bet as there is, donâ€™t be surprised if Detroit wins this one by double digits.
And on MNF Seattle -10 is a little rich for my blood considering how suspect the Seahawks offense has been this season. But the Niners offense has been even more inept so in light of that I see the play as being the under 39 Â½ .
