The Jekyll and Hyde Jets did in my best bet. Best to stay away from them. At least they took down the Patriots. I was right that the 49ers should have been my best bet even though I originally thought Jake Locker would not play. Both the Chargers and 49ers dominated on the road.
Six teams have byes this week, the pickings are slim.
home team in bold
Carolina Panthers (-6.0) over Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Bucs are a dumpster fire. A poorly coached dumpster fire. Not having Doug Martin makes things that much worse.
Atlanta Falcons (+2.5) over Arizona Cardinals
Playing a hunch. Cards are much better at home, I just think the Falcons are ready to get on a roll.
edit 10/27 12:30 pm: I originally had a typo giving 2.5 points to the Cards. The Falcons are actually the underdog getting 2.5 points.
New England Patriots (-6.5) over Miami Dolphins
Does anyone envision the Patriots losing two division games in a row? At home I have to think they can win by at least a TD even with the defensive injuries. Hard to envision the Dolphins Swiss cheese offensive line improving much after the acquisition of an over the hill. Bryant McKinnie.
New England Patriots (-4.0) over New York Jets LOSS
San Diego Chargers (-7.5) over Jacksonville Jaguars WIN
San Francisco 49ers (-4.5) over Tennessee Titans WIN
Year to Date: 7-15 Best Bets: 1-6
