    -3.5 units for the night. So much for my 60% start in Week 1!

    Pats gotta bring in some WRs and TEs this long week off.

    I don't think I've ever seen as many drops between two teams as there were tonight. These people get paid millions of dollars and all they have to do is catch the ball when it's thrown to them. Any of us could do as well as some of what we saw tonight.

    Drops and wrong routes. No way Pats stay with those two guys as starters.

    Okay, gotta make up for this -3.5 start.

    Leans

    KC -2.5 over Dallas. Romo is dinged up and Cowboys have some holes. Arrowhead will be rockin.'

    Balty -6.5 over Browns. Browns have good D but pathetic O. Ravens have the extra rest and going back Home where they are tough.

    Buffalo +3 vs Carolina. Might not be pretty, but good to have +3 and the Home Field in an ugly game.

    AZ +1 vs Detroit. Could be a shootout. Banking on the AZ D to contain Megatron and hoping Fitz is healthy. He's a game time decision.

    Cinci -6.5 vs Pitt. Steelers falling apart. Bengals should punce at home, but Marvin Lewis is so damn conservative.

    Indy -2.5 vs Fins. Fins are damn tough, but Luck should make more plays thatn Tannehill.

    Saints -3 at TB. Bucs in a bit of disarray. May be revolting against their Coach. We;ll see if they get up for it at home.

    Broncos -4 over Giants. I want to pick this but can't root against my Giants. Would take some lucky turnovers and Home cooking for Giants to win or even cover.

    Rams. This was +6.5 or even +7, but Julio and Roddy are hobbled and questionable.

    Over/Unders
    Detroit/AZ over 47. Palmer and Stafford trade TDs and INTs.

    Denver/ NYG over 54. Neither D will be able to stop the Manning Bros.

    Locked in:

    Chiefs -2.5 over Cowboys (2 units)
    Broncos/Giants over 54 (2 units)

    Saints -3 over Bucs (1 unit)
    Colts -2.5 over Dolphins (1 unit)

    Teaser
    Packers -1 and Ravens Even (1 unit)

    Will wait on AZ and AZ over as Fitz is a game time decision.

    Adding another unit to Saints -3. Morale is not good in Tampa. Freeman wants out. Team not liking Schiano. And even without that, Brees is on a mission and Rob Ryan has the Saints playing decent D.

    Ravens -3 2H (2 units)

    Rams -.5 2H (.5 unit)

  13. #13
    2H wagers got me back to positive territory for the day - up 1.5 units with Saints, Colts and Giants over to go.

    Losing my 2 unit plays and winning my 1 unit plays. Not a good formula.

    Broncos over 14.5 2H (1 unit)

  14. #14
    8-3 on the day but my three losses were 2 unit plays and brought me down to 9.5-6 with Bungles to go MNF.
    Some frustrating beats, but some fortunate wins.

    Saints and Chiefs had opportunities for more. Dallas gets the cover with a questionable strategy call and a 53 yard FG. Maybe should have gone for it as they never got another chance.

    Brees was going in for another score to extend the lead and throws an 85 yard Pick 6. Unreal. Saints missed a FG and got stuffed multiple times on the one. Bad Beat on the Saints.


    Broncos/Giants over 54 (2 units)
    Bills +3 over Panthers (1 unit)
    Ravens -6.5 over Browns (1 unit)
    Cards +2 over Lions (1 unit)

    I an leaning Pittsburg tonight. Just think they keep it close. I think cinnci wins but no cover.

    Your day sounds like mine yesterday. I lost all my 2 unit plays but won my others. Carolina was the one that hurt the most!

    Dallas kicking a 53 yard field goal for no reason killed my day-glad the bastards lost the game straight up they deserved it with that coaching move.

    They thought they would get the ball back. If it was less 4th and 10, then might have gone for it. Still should have, maybe.

    Damn, Dalton's slow feet and short arms and legs cost me the Teaser. Got the straight bet. They say just bet sides with Teasers, not totals. Totals fall outside 6.5 points much more often than the sides.

    10.5-7 on the weekend, but was 0-3.5 on the Thursday night game.

    16.5-14.5 or 53% for the first two weeks.

    Both of those teams stink.

    Bengals are better than pitts but I don't think they make any kind of playoff run. They are just missing something that could put them over the top. I think it may be a better coach actually. Lewis kind of sleepwalks the game. Can't put a finger on it. I feel like the way the game went, Cinnci shoould have won by 14-17 points easily. Big Ben had one good drive when he hurried it up a bit.

    I think Sunday and Thursday nigth football has overtaken MNF for must see TV!

    It was weird how many receivers were overthrown or dropped the ball.
    I really do think the CBA agreement that lessened practices is killing these players. They need more practice in the offseason and between games and to stop being such whiners.

    I like that all teams play thursday night. Sunday night is certainly the better matchups. MNF just doesn't get anything good anymore. They get bottom of the barrel last pick now.
