ATS: Week One

18 posts in this topic

Bonus upset pick: chiefs to beat falcons straight up

The Chiefs will be without 3 or their best defenders. I think they'll be able to run the ball effectively against Atlanta, I just don't see them stopping White, Jones, Gonzo and HD.

My picks:

Atl -2.5 over K.C.

N.E. -6.5 over Ten

Car -2.5 over T.B.

Agree with your picks, but the Atlanta game scares me. The Falcons are a lot like the Saints* (get them out of the dome and they aren't as comfortable).

In the dome they may be one of the top five best teams in the league. Outside, i'm just not sure.

Should be a good game, and I don't think any outcome (outside of KC blowing the falcons out) would surprise me

I don't necessarily see KC "stopping" the Falcons offense from a yardage standpoint, I just see KC winning the turnover battle, getting a big special teams play and using a pretty raucous home crowd to pull off the upset. I think the Falcons would win by 2 TDs if it were in the GA dome.

Dang those are some good picks. I hate to copy yours. I think the Giants roll over the Cowboys I also love Houston big over Miami.

Washington +9 over the Saints***. Washington is 2-0 on opening day with Shanahan as coach, plus Shanahan is 14 - 4 on season openers. That leads the NFL among coaches. Redskins Saints*** games are usually very close with Washington having an 8-5 record in New Oleans.

I'll take the points.

I think the Bills beat the Jets. I think the line is Jets -3. I have a feeling the Bills win by a TD or more.

And my 3 pick will be Houston big over Miami, by at least 2 touchdowns

Bills :(

smh
