Well, all three of my selections won last week (the Jets, Texans and Eagles) and the team I told you to avoid that may have looked good on paper (the Buffalo Bills), lost. So hopefully you took my advice last week. Let’s take a look at the week ahead.
Stay away from road teams.
Stay away from divisional matchups.
Never take a divisional team on the road.
On to Week 9…
Jets @ Bills – Tempting to go with the Bills since the Jets are awful, but it’s a divisional game and I’ll stay away.
Lions @ Bears – Lions, in
Jaguars @ Bengals – Stay away even though the Jags can’t lose this one.
Ravens @ Browns – A dog fight in the dawg pound.
Packers @ Titans – When will the Titans lose? Could it be this week after the big MNF defeat of the Colts? This should be a good NFC-AFC battle.
Cardinals @ Rams – Big NFC West game.
Texans @ Vikings – Wow, there are a lot of close games this week.
Bucs @ Chiefs – Road game for the Bucs after that tough loss in
Dolphins @ Broncos –
Falcons @ Raiders – Don’t like going with road teams across the country.
Cowboys @ Giants – Tempting to go with Big Blue, but it’s still the Cowboys and you’ve probably used the Giants anyway, so this is probably a moot point.
Eagles @ Seahawks – Eagles should win this one with Matt Hasselbeck still sidelined for the Seahawks, but I have more faith in
Patriots @ Colts – Colts are a gutsy pick this week to rebound as they need the win to avoid starting 3-5. It’s risky, but it may be worth it with the minimal options this week.
Steelers @ Redskins – Avoid. Great MNF matchup, though.
If I had to pick a third, I’d go with the Eagles, but prefer the other two if you have them.
recommend taking the Bears
this week over the Bucs because they are home. The Lions being winless does concern me a bit, but
There are not many options this week, so hopefully you will survive and advance!
