Six-Pack Challenge WEEK 2 – Early Returns

It’s still early in the season. A little too early to have a grip on every team. Are the Jets really an offensive juggernaut? Is having an interim interim coach going to sink the Saints? However, this also means it’s too early for the oddsmakers and the public to tell which teams are good and which teams are the Dolphins. Since you, dear reader, and I are way smarter than anybody else, these first few weeks are a great time to make some money if you can see the trends before everybody else can. All it takes are one or two teams that you feel strongly about and then, bet heavy.

For me, the Ravens are the Browns are those teams. Although they eviscerated the Bengals, question marks still surround Baltimore and Joe Flacco. I think they look more like dollar signs. And while the Brownies hung tough with Eagles, Brandon Weeden’s 4 INT’s and the overall incompetence of the Browns offense mixed with Mike Vick’s inept day are enough for me to know that the Cleveland is really, really, really, really, really bad. You may not agree, but if there’s a team you like or don’t, make sure to get those early returns. Pick time!

SAINTS (-3.5) AT PANTHERS
Stone: Saints
Does anyone really think the Saints are going 0-2 against the Skins and Panthers?

Slumdeezy: Saints
Redeem Team.

DRK: Panthers

Rory: Panthers
After last week’s debacle against the Redskins, I’ve lost faith in the Saints.

DP Animal: Panthers

Phanatic: Panthers

RAVENS AT EAGLES (-2.5)
Stone: Ravens
They’re my team.

Slumdeezy: Ravens

DRK: Ravens

Rory: Ravens
This is my Shoe-In of the Week!

DP Animal: Ravens
At what point do we have to consider the thought that, despite all the evident talent, this Eagles team just isn’t very good?

Phanatic: Eagles
I hope.

COWBOYS (-3.5) AT SEAHAWKS
Stone: Seahawks
I hate the Cowboys.

Slumdeezy: Cowboys

DRK: Seahawks

Rory: Seahawks
I still don’t believe in the Cowboys, and it is tough to play in Seattle.

DP Animal: Seahawks
Hard to imagine having a must-win game this early in the year, but it almost feels that way for Seattle.

Phanatic: Cowboys

JETS AT STEELERS (-5.5)
Stone: Steelers

Slumdeezy: Steelers

DRK: Jets

Rory: Jets
I love the dogs this week, don’t I?  I think the Jets lose this, but it is close.

DP Animal: Steelers

Phanatic: Steelers
Can’t wait for the 10-3 final. 48 be damned.

LIONS AT 49ERS (-7.5)
Stone: 49ers
Has there ever been a primetime game picked based solely on the coaches?

Slumdeezy: 49ers
I get the feeling this team’s for real.

DRK: Lions

Rory: 49ers

DP Animal: Lions
Too many points.

Phanatic: Lions

BRONCOS AT FALCONS (-3.5)
Stone: Broncos
I hear the Broncos have a good quarterback.

Slumdeezy: Broncos
I might just pick Peyton all year. Or at least until I don’t.

DRK: Broncos

Rory: Falcons
Two great teams – easily the toughest to call.  Should be a fun, high scoring game.

DP Animal: Falcons

Phanatic: Broncos
You don’t bet against Peyton on Monday night.

CURRENT RECORDS
Stone: 5-1
Slumdeezy: 3-3
DRK: 3-3
Phanatic: 3-3
Rory: 2-4
DP Animal: 2-4
