I like to hear everyone's prediction and see how similiar and different our decisions are.

Titans @ Jets
Jaguars @ Texans
Browns @ Ravens
Giants @ Buccaneers
Redskins @ Lions
Packers @ Rams
49ers @ Vikings
Falcons @ Patriots
Bears @ Seahawks
Saints @ Bills
Dolphins @ Chargers
Steelers @ Bengals
Broncos @ Raiders
Colts @ Cardinals
Panthers @ Cowboys
Eagles @ Chiefs (There's no ML for this at the moment.)

The moneyline constantly changes, add your current time moneyline.

My predictions for week 3:

Titans +3
Texans -3.5
Ravens -13 (I expect an upset.)
Giants -6.5
Lions +6
Packers -6.5
49ers +7
Falcons +4
Bears -1.5
Saints -6 (I expect an upset.)
Dolphins +6
Bengals +4
Broncos -1
Colts +2.5
Cowboys -9 (I expect an upset.)

What are you basing your "upsets" on? I dont consider the cowboys one an upset because Tony Homo is awful, and the Bills over the saints? And Browns over Ravens? Please explain yourself (And im even a bills fan!)

I have bad reasons, but mainly because that the Bills had the Patriots dominated, the bad touchdown call by the referee and the player who did not kneel made them lose by a point. I think it's going to be a close game against the Saints, the +4 could give them an edge.

I think I'm wrong about the Browns being 13 points in range to win, just my instincts just tells me something is wrong.

I'm actually leaning the same way as you on every game except the Cowboys. I like Panthers +9. I haven't made any wagers yet and I typically do more research on Thurs/Fri before making my plays.

Bengals +4 is good because Steeler's Troy Polamalu S is injured for several weeks.

Texans -3.5 is good because Panther's Troy Williamson WR is injured out of season from the previous game.

Bears -1.5 is good because Seahawk's Matt Hasselbeck QB is injured and doubtful to play this sunday.

If Patriot's Wes Welker WR is playing this sunday, then Patriots -4. If not, Falcons +4

Who is playing the Texans?

the saints game might be closer than people expect it, and bills could very well take it at home.. n.o's defense is TERRIBLE.

with hassleback out, the bears line opened up close to a pickem, something smells fishy..

also I think texans look too easy, I expect a good performance from Jax.

I wish you well in week three, but the Bills did not dominate the Pats, quite the opposite actually

I did more research, I don't like the Bengals +4 that much anymore. The fact they did terrible against the Broncos.

And that Big Ben is a better QB than Palmer this year. Regardless of Polamalu's injury, QB and WR are more important positions than Safety.

I combined pro picks who had the best win loss ratio from week 1 and 2. Here's what they had in common:

Texans -3.5
Green Bay -6.5
Oakland -1.5

I disagree with Oakland, but I think these are the safest bet this week.
