NFL Week Three Picks

After another shabby 2-3 performance last week, I am now 4-9 on the year. I better start getting some things right, and soon. Here are six entries for this week.

Cincinnati -3 at Carolina: The Panthers are giving a rookie quarterback his first start, against a pretty good defense. This will probably not end well.

New Orleans -3 vs. Atlanta: This might be one of the best games of the week. The Falcons are a likely playoff team, but they are not ready to take out the bullies of their division in the Superdome.

Kansas City +3 vs. San Francisco: The 49ers are this year's snakebit team. Even if they play well, their opponent will play that much better. I'm going to take the home team and the points in a matchup where both teams' defenses are the better units.

Houston -2.5 vs. Dallas: Not sure what the oddsmakers are thinking about here. This line indicates the Cowboys would be a half-point favorite at a neutral site. Have they seen this Dallas team play? Though talented, they have looked like dog-squeeze early this season. Texans by a touchdown.

Washington -3.5 at St. Louis: Redskins shrug off last week's disappointing collapse against the Texans. The Rams are not nearly as good.

Indianapolis -5 at Denver: I might have liked this line anyway. After Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno injured himself in practice, and a player on injured reserve committed suicide, it is an easy call. Sorry. Peyton Manning doesn't show mercy to anybody.

Edit to correct season record.

NFL Kickoff Picks

Last year's Super Bowl debacle left my record at 52-54. I am always better early than late. Therefore, listen to me now.

New Orleans -4.5 vs Minnesota: Take the team that is hanging a banner. Give me the over 49.5 points as well.

More picks this weekend.
