Week 3 Picks - Get'em while they're hot!

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special "NFL SUNDAY HEY" goes out to Hazel Mae.

Week 3 picks - better late than never, I've got a great feeling about this week's picks - spreads were locked down on Wednesday, so they may not reflect latest lines.

16) NEW ENGLAND - 12.5 over Miami - this is more about how bad the Dolphins are, than how good the Patriots are.

15) ATLANTA - 4.5 over Kansas City - see above, Chiefs make another QB change. Michael Turner should have the same kind of day McFadden had last week against the Chiefs.

14) PHILADELPHIA -2.5 over Pittsburgh - they're both counterfeit in my books, but the Steelers have too many issues on O-Line to deal with the Eagles pass is going to be a long day for Ben.

13) Jacksonville +5.5 over INDIANAPOLIS - the Jags always play the Colts tough, with Sanders out for Indy, it will likely be a great day for Jags running game. Take the points and run.

12) DENVER -5.5 over New Orleans - Saints have injury issues on D, not good when you are facing a Broncos offense that is rolling.

11) BUFFALO -8.5 over Oakland - Bills D should rule the day today against a Raiders offense without Fargas and McFadden only expected to get limited playing time. Bills win by 13 today.

10) Carolina +3.5 over MINNESOTA - so the Vikings bench Jackson in favour of Gus Frerotte, will it make a big difference? NO. Panthers could win this one outright.

09) SEATTLE -9.5 over St. Louis - Seahawks D will have to step up eventually...might as well be today against a Rams O-Line that could stop Hazel on the rush, let alone Patrick Kearney.

08) Arizona +3.5 over WASHINGTON - Cards have enough offense to win this one outright.

07) Dallas -2.5 over GREEN BAY - This is Cowboys country. Packers have had a couple of cream puffs to start the season off - it will be different tonight.

06) CHICAGO -2.5 over Tampa Bay - not trusting Brian Griese, especially with Galloway out of today's game.

05) Detroit +3.5 over SAN FRAN - started out thinking the Lions suck "NOW", but history says, this is exactly when they surprise everyone and win. 49ers have injury issues on D, so Kitna will probably look like an All-Star today.

04) TENNESSEE -4.5 over Houston - ya the Texans are well rested, but can they get anything done against the Titans D?

03) New York Jets +9.5 over San Diego - Chargers D can't stop anyone right now, Favre keeps it close - backdoor cover.

02) Baltimore over Cleveland - going with Ravens D here.

01) Cincinnati +13.5 over NY Giants - Maeple Leafs announce this morning that Carson Palmer has been benched in Fantasy Football league - meaning he'll probably respond with a good game to keep it close.


Three early winners to start Sunday off right, with three more to be posted before 4:00 pm.

NEW ENGLAND -12.5 over Miami - see above. Lay $100 on the Pats.

ATLANTA -6.5 over Kansas City - the line went up for a reason...Ryan hands the ball off to Bennett all afternoon. Lay $100 on the Falcons.

Carolina +3 over MINNESOTA - take the points. Lay $100 on the Panthers.

That's it for this morning gang - thanks for taking the time to check in.

Hazel, here's hoping things are groovy in your world - enjoy your NFL Sunday.

I'm OUT!
