Time to throw some darts at the board and pray. Things are not going well so far. I just don't have a good read on the league. I mean the Bears, Chiefs and Roethlisberger-less Steelers are the last three undefeated teams. That's insane. I wanted to try to get away from picking road favorites. I failed. Three more on tap. Two are divisional matchups which makes it doubly stupid. A man likes what he likes. At least the Colts won for me last week.

Best BetHouston Texans (-3.0) over Oakland Raiders
The Texans ran into a buzz saw last week at home against the desperate Cowboys. I expect a rebound. The Raiders aren't toothless. The light seems to have come on for Darren McFadden and Bruce Gradkowski comes to play. I just don't envision them having the weapons to hang with the Texans this week.
OthersIndianapolis Colts (-7.5) over Jacksonville Jaguars
Jaguars are awful. Lack offensive weapons. Have problems handling the pass rush. Hanging with the Colts seems unlikely.
New York Jets (-5.5) over Buffalo Bills
Bills are beyond awful. They did manage to put up a decent offensive showing against the struggling Pats defense. The Jets are not the Patriots. Can't believe I just wrote that.... Could The Sanchize implode and keep them in the game. Always a possibility. His performance the last two weeks make me think it won't happen.
