I love Vegas. I mean, I've never been there, but I love what the whole debauchery thing. I also think that Week 2 is perenially the week that Vegas capitalizes off football fans over-reacting to Week 1. But ALAS, I shan't be fooled.
ST. LOUIS -1 OVER ARIZONA
You can't allow the Giants to score 42 points. That's silly.
BALTIMORE - 3.5 OVER TENNESSEE
I'm pretty sure the Titans are the worst team in football not called the Houston Texans.
CINCINNATI -3 OVER MINNESOTA
Okay, this is a heart pick. I just want to see the Vikings totally fall apart.
SAN DIEGO +3 OVER DENVER
The Chargers are a much, much, much better team. MUCH! Denver sucks.
DA BEARS + 1.5 OVER DETROIT
This game seems to always come down to a field goal. The Lions are going to be without Jason Hanson this week. That's my logic.
CLEVELAND + 6.5 OVER GREEN BAY
I'm simply playing the points here. I wouldn't watch this game if they announced Jesus was coming back at halftime.
INDIANAPOLIS -9 OVER JACKSONVILLE
Everything is telling me to go the other way on this one...but no. I think the Colts are just going to steamroll teams this year.
NEW ENGLAND -3 OVER CAROLINA
The Panthers are going to open 0-2. Is there a Jeff Hughes Super Bowl selection curse?
OAKLAND + 1.5 OVER KANSAS CITY
I'm chalking up last week to Jets ineptitude and not to the invigorated Chiefs defense. Billy Bell had three months to prepare for the Raiders and they scored 20. I expect 30 Sunday night in what should be a really fun game.
NEW YORK JETS -6 OVER MIAMI
Did you hear that a rookie d-lineman punched Jonathan Vilma in the face and he got on the team bus with a fat lip and swollen jaw? That's awesome.
PITTSBURGH -6 OVER HOUSTON
I make jokes but Houston isn't as bad as they played last week. The Bills defense IS that good. Still, I'm hedging my bets and not picking them.
ATLANTA +1 OVER SEATTLE
Okay, Vegas. What am I missing? How is this spread even possible? I should just pick Seattle because clearly Vegas has information that the sports watching public does not possess. But no fucking way.
BUFFALO +2.5 OVER TAMPA BAY
Tampa had a nice first week. Final score: 13-10 Bills.
WASHINGTON +6 OVER DALLAS
Cowboys win. Redskins massacre Mssr. Bledsoe.
NEW ORLEANS +3 OVER NEW YORK GIANTS
I don't wanna succumb, but I have. Go Saints.
There is no line for the EAGLES/49ERS game until McNabb's status is clear. If he plays and the spread is less than 14, I'll take the Birds.
.500 last week. The kid needs 9 wins this weekend.
There is never any logic behind your betting for the Bears, admit it.

Here at DaBearsBlog, you are free to kill us or the Bears as you so wish. You are not free, however, to be an asshole. So if you spew racism or ill-meaning foul language (cursing about football is just fine) or anything of that ilk, your comments ain't gonna last long, jerk.
