I'm struggling to understand how the Ravens go to Philadelphia as underdogs - they're 2 point dogs and can be backed straight up at odds against.
I made their performance a serious one last weekend and put them in the top half dozen in the Superbowl betting, these two rarely meet but if the Eagles struggle on offence in Cleveland they're in for a tough time against the Ravens.
This could be a serious play for me.

Can't see much else that takes the eye, think a couple of totals could be a bit low, Texans/Jags 41 and Seahawks/Cowboys 41.5

I have my reservations about the ravens on the road, and think this is reflected in their price. So its a no bet game for me, If flacco and co can put on a performance on the road against the eagles in a divisional game, ill see them as genuine contenders.

I like indy, lucks first game at home and although they both have pretty bad defense, i think they might get the job done.

the only one i really like is Manning and co to beat the Falcons

maybe the Jets and Steelers to go over

really surprised to see that the Redskins open 3 points favourite against the Rams

I think the Rams will be a tough team to beat at home this year

Struggling a bit myself this week

Seahawks +3.0 vs Cowboys maybe. Cowboys are such an up-and-down team you don't know what you're going to get from one week to the next. Not a very confident pick anyway.

Baltimore were impressive on the eye, though I have to question the Bengals D, they had a few opportunities to make important plays. Phili will be hard pressed not to ask further questions of the Ravens offence. They should bring more pressure up front and not be overly matched at cornerback, both Nnamdi and Rodgers-Cromartie have had excellent starts (inc. camp and pre-season), both are now playing in a system that is designed for them.
Also interesting to see how the Raven's no huddle offence works on the road. I personally have it as a pick'em matchup and for that reason I will be happy not to play.

Not keen on anything this week, however, I believe that the Jets have been overrated due to their week one performance against the bills, I willbe watching the running back issue at Pittsburgh, if Dwyer starts, I may play. The Steeler's played well enough on Sunday and should give Sanchez more to think about.

thought the scoreline flattered the Ravens

the Bengals were competitive throughout

True to say that the Bengal's lost momentum during a pivotal period of the game, although they were vulnerable to the deep pass throughout.

The reason I have the Ravens @ The Eagles as a toss up is because I am an Eagles fan, one of the pessimistic ones! We struggled offensively during camp/pre-season. It will come together at some point, I just have doubts about this weekend, Maclin is still day to day.

Good responses fellas, I'm just not sold on the Eagles and have backed Ravens.
Also back Texans to give up 7 and Cowboys to give up 3, plus the overs in Seattle.
Good luck all

my two big bets this week are cinnci -7 and san fran -7..think the cinnci game will be a shootout dalton looked decent for two and a half quarters the last night no way was the baltimore game a 31 point loss...green ellis also looked pretty decent on the ground..can see weedon throwing another few picks..he looked awful..
also think the 49s..to do that agaionst the packers defense compared to how chicago got on against them..johnson will play but wont be 100% and he shouyld be easy to cover when they dont have to worry about the run...
two singles and a double for me

Sky don't choose their games on the best looking match up Sad

Although to be fair todays games were picked before the season started and would Ravens - Philly have looked so good if both teams were standing at 0-1.

Can`t see them either Pim.
I`ve sent them an email to add them to the multiples market so hopefully should get it sorted.

Colts/Panthers/Rams

So poor if they stopped, they manage put up the MLB every night.

Playing Pittsburgh on the spread, -5 @ 10/13 with PP.
With the Rams as well (on here, with a view to trade green). Ram's D should provide a sterner test for RGIII's Redskin offence, especially if Garcon is out, as widely predicted on the US networks.

Good luck all.

panthers might as well play without a defence. they are hopeless and NO are walking it in (easy dropped catches aside)

looks like both teams playing without a D
