Season Record: 20-13-2
Carolina -3.5 v. Minnesota Vikings: The Panthers have been close all year and always seem to cover the spread as an underdog. It’s surprising to think that they would be a home favourite this season by more than a field goal, but here they are. The Vikings don’t have McNabb, so it’s more of a gamble it seems, but hard to go against Carolina and number two, Cam Newton.Buffalo Bills -7.5 v. Washington Redskins: This is a big spread, but I love my Buffalo Bills and the Redskins are simply no good. As I said last week, I feel like Washington is the team I know better than others, and I can say that they are simply bad. Bills will win and should cover playing supposedly at home in Toronto.
Philadephia Eagles -3.5 v. Dallas Cowboys: I think the Eagles are better than their record and finally coming together. The games they lost were due to penalties and turnovers. Meanwhile, Dallas has won games despite poor coaching in the last two minutes and despite turnovers. Eagles will win by four.
Cincinnati Bengals -3.0 at Seattle Seahawks: The Bengals are actually good, with a capable rookie QB, a great rookie WR, and a great defense that beat my Buffalo Bills. The Seahawks, meanwhile, are not that good, and it doesn’t matter where they play. Go Bengals.
Kansas City Chiefs +3.5 v. San Diego Chargers: It is odd that the Chiefs are underdogs at home against a division opponent that they nearly beat a few weeks ago on the road. The Chiefs are unpredictable, but they get up for the Chargers and will not lose by more than three.
