T.O. or Moss, Who Will Dominate?
5dimes.com.com Posts Odds on Raiders-Eagles
September 21, 2005
After a second week of surprises and upsets, fans can look forward to an action-filled Week 3 of the NFL season. 5dimes.com.com has posted all the odds.
We saw another exciting weekend of football, says Calvin Ayre, Founder and CEO of 5dimes.com.com. We saw the physical Carolina Panthers capitalize on turnovers against the usually uNFLappable New England Patriots, and Eli Manning and the New York Giants pounce on the New Orleans Saints. One thing for sure, I will need to carefully review my 5dimes.com Fantasy Football picks this week.
The upcoming weekend features a slate of exciting Games. On Sunday, wide receiver Randy Moss and the Oakland Raiders square off against the favored Philadelphia Eagles. Coming off a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, the Raiders look to counter the duo of quarterback Donovan McNabb and wideout Terrell Owens, who, judging by their stellar performance last week against San Francisco, seem to have put their quarrelling behind them. Will it be T.O. or Moss who steals the show?
After an underwhelming performance in Carolina, the two-time defending champion Patriots will look to rebound against quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers in a rematch of the AFC Championship Game. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will need to step up as the 5dimes.com.com bookmakers show the Steelers as a 3-point favorite.
In Monday Night Football, the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos renew their AFC West rivalry. The Chiefs are 2-0 after defeating the Raiders last weekend. Although they will be playing back-to-back road Games, the Chiefs are 4-1 against the spread when they are the away team on Monday Night Football. The Denver Broncos are on a 6-1-1 streak against the spread when they host the Chiefs. 5dimes.com bookmakers currently have the Broncos as 3-point favorites as they play before their fans at Invesco Field.
