Looking at the early lines, Baltimore receiving 2 off the Steelers looks a bet and a half.
And the Giants are favs? Holy moly!!! Even thought it's the Vikings, I wouldn't bet the Giants to beat anyone at the mo!
Plus i think the Skins can take care of the Bears.
Other than that it just looks very tough indeed

LOL - I disagree with all your first three bets!  I think Tomlin will have the measure of the the division rivals.  Giants still have the talent to bounce back from current poor form, coming off the extra few days rest in that close game with the bears they should beat the Vikes who looked terrible last weekend and far too reliant on AP.  I think the Skins are in danger of imploding at the moment and I have been impressed with Jay Cutler this season.

U have been impressed with Jay Cutler this season? Holy moly CryCryCry

Holy moly Clay.  I think I know why your weekly picks need a bit more work.

Are you impressed with Andrew Luck ?  How about Russell Wilson ? How about  Cam Newton, Andy Dalton, Colin Kaepernick ?

What do they all have in common ?  Let's throw in  Eli Manning, Joe Flacco and The Golden boy himself, Tom Brady ?

Give up ?

They're all ranked below Jay Cutler so far this year.  Give up your preconceived ideas and open your eyes.

Cutler is playing under a new coach, probably a new system.  What he's doing this year is very impressive.

Don't take my word for it.  Take out a few guys who have only played a few downs, and JC's ranked 7th in the league.

Yes me again.

Sorry about my smack remark about how your picks need more work.  I didn't mean in the general sense because I haven't been keeping track and you may be cleaning up for all I know.  I guess I meant that if you aren't impressed with what JC is doing, maybe fully accepting that he is having a good year will may open your eyes to that and other things.  Apologies.

Jay Cutler is sh!te. Always has been, always will be. HTH
Report d13phe October 16, 2013 8:45 AM BST
nope he isn't and he has had upgrades in his offensive line which they have struggled with for years.

He is pretty good when he gets time and has Brandon Marshall to throw to.

I like the way the Bears look this year.  I don't think they are SB contenders but i think they could make the playoffs and possibly win that division
Report ClayDavis October 16, 2013 10:29 AM BST
You guys have been clearly watching a different team from me. Their D is awful. An out of sorts Giants moved the ball with ease against them. Despite Eli's best attempts at giving them the ball as often as possible.
The Saints moved the ball so so so easily against them. The Lions crushed them! Did u see Cutler's performance in the Lions game? Shameful.
Even with their injuries, the Packers will eat them alive.

I would go Steelers, Giants and Skins

So the Bears are currently ranked 25th on defense and u guys think they are doing well and will go deep this season? It ain't happening. They just can't stop teams scoring and Cutler ain't good enough to outscore teams. He buckles. Throws picks. Makes stupid mistakes. Blows it. Starts shaking his head from side to side. Blames everyone else.

For me the bears are the 3rd best team in that division and that is where they will finish

Mistakes like this happen every day...at least you didn't get greedy and try for more...good luck to you if you can get one over them....if they are willing to short cut and employ people who don't know what they are doing they deserve it...if you made a mistake and clicked the wrong button they wouldn't return the stake.

Never keen to back on my team especially on the road, but think Seattle will cover this week. Arizona can't run it so will be forced to throw into the tough Seattle secondary. Cards defends is good but will be a long night for their offends.

Wrong thread Harry, but I'm with you.  I'd take the money easily from the thieving crooks.  One guy actually said if you keep the money it's like theft.
And Clay, Jay Cutler is ranked 7th in the league for QBs.  You seem to think that's crap.  We're not talking about the team, just him.  7th out of 32 starters, and you think it's shiiit.

Should see a defensive battle swardean, like these kind of games, big fan of the cards defence and special teams.  then at the weekend we have ravens v steelers,that should be a low scoring one also.

A man like myself harry, can't beat a titantic defensive tug of war. That is why the thread on bonus points in NFL is not a good idea.
Report HARRY22 October 16, 2013 7:46 PM BST
even if you had a bonus point would it really stop these raven steeler games being low scoring games?? I doubt it

Clay - didn't mean to dis your pics, I'm in agreement with you that week 7 looks a bit tricky and as an example the 3 pics you made I had the opposite opinion (out of 5 bets I selected this week).

The beauty of this thread is one of us will be rightLaugh

Texans' Case Keenum to start at QB, Matt dropped.  Line not moved yet... is this good or bad for chiefs?

Report Still standing October 17, 2013 10:09 PM BST
The line not moving just shows you what seasoned gamblers know about middle of the road QBs.  Namely, they are inter changable.  Most gamblers live  or die with the QB. Outside of about 4 or 5 of them, you could swap in the backup with a weeks worth of first team practice reps and they're about 95 to 99 % as good as the vaunted starter.  Same as running backs.  Except for about 3, they're all the same.  I wonder how happy with themselves Tennessee is with all the money they gave to Chris Johnston.  Same story for about 3 or 4 receivers, and maybe 3 or 4 tight ends.

The QB change in Texas is a hard call as a bettor. I wonder why Yates isn't the starter.   The fact the line didn't move is a slap in the face to Schaub.  Now it's psychological with the team.  Are they glad he's out and will play better ?  Was Schaub benched or is he out because of injury? If he was benched, will his teammates be moping ?

The best thing as a bettor with this game is you could always pass.
