PICK ‘EM and SURVIVOR: Week 3

Top 5 Pick ‘Em

 New England +1 (vs. Houston) – There is one reason for this pick: Dating back to 2002, the Patriots have only lost one game when they were home underdogs. November 7th, 2005 against the undefeated Colts lead by Peyton Manning.

Carolina -7 (vs. Minnesota) – Adrian Peterson hasn’t been great so far, but losing him is another major blow to the Vikings. The Panthers defense should feast on Sam Bradford this weekend.

Detroit +7.5 (@ Green Bay) – The Packers aren’t the offensive powerhouse that we all grew to know and love. Aaron Rodgers has a passer rating below 100 in 14 straight games, which is more than twice as long as the second active streak – Alex Smith at six straight games.

Arizona -4.5 (@ Buffalo) – It looks like the Cardinals may have found their groove. Through two weeks, the Cardinals are ranked in the top 10 in both offense and defense, while the Bills are in the bottom third.

Oakland -1.5 (@ Tennessee) – The top-ranked offense will give the Raiders a big advantage this week against the Titans. Unlike the Saints and Falcons who have the sixth and fourth ranked offense respectively, the Titans are in the bottom half of the league.

 

Top Survivor Picks

Arizona (@ Buffalo) – See above.

 

Survivor Avoid

Miami (vs. Cleveland) – The Dolphins are the overwhelming top pick this week at 42%. Sure, Cleveland is in shambles, but Miami hasn’t been lighting it up either.
