You honestly think the NFL actively participates in the criminal activty of fixing games for a dead person who they didn't even like when he was alive?

I know the NFL didn't fix it....

but the football Gods I believe in. And I had the same feeling that week that he died, same with Ravens and Modell.

Wow!

Nicks will play, I have no doubt on that. No way he misses a primetime game in his home town. If Amukamara and Coe are out though, that would be huge.

Diehl isn't going to play. Bradshaw isn't going to play. I bet the other listed do play.

If I had to guess, Amukamara will probably be out as well. That way they have this week and next to get him healthy for his first action.

RB Ahmad Bradshaw (neck), RT David Diehl (knee) and WR Domenik Hixon (concussion) all left Sunday's game due to injury and the three weren't at practice during the portion open to the media.

WR Hakeem Nicks (foot) was in attendance, but was riding a stationary bike. Nicks, who battled through obvious pain to catch 10 passes for 199 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, only practiced once last week (Thursday) and will likely be limited between games for the entire season.

Hixon probably will miss the game.

My father in law, brother in laws, and wife are HUGE Giants fans from Jersey. Season ticket holders.

Really want this game; since i started dating her in 2004 there's been some classics. The playoff shutout, the 2008 hum doozy on sunday night football for homefield.... I want this one as bad as any of them.

Putting them in a two-team, 6 point teaser isn't a bad idea, as that would get the spread to +7.5 and allow you to cross the key points of 3 and 7. Maybe with the Seahawks, who are currently +3.5 at home to GB (Seattle is freakishly good as home dogs ATS, and upping the spread to +9.5 is pretty enticing).

But like I said in the other thread, I bet on the Panthers -2.5 vs the Bucs and the Pantherslost, then didn't bet either= way on the Saints game and we won, so I'm not betting on Panthers games anymore this season lol.

Teasers are losers. They look great until you only cover one of the two. Those six points look great viewed individually in each game. Collectively, you have to win 2 bets though and more times than not the six points is not enough for both bets. Bookies and Vegas love teasers and parlays. I do believe that the 2 team home underdog teaser you propose is enticing. Problem is, you are betting against the last 2 Super Bowl champs while the 2 teams on the other side have a rookie and second year QB. The Giants are way better than the Saints and while the Packers have a tough matchup against the Seattle corners, Aaron Rodgers versus Russell Wilson favors the Pack heavily. If Green Bay can slow Marshawn, that game could be a Green Bay win by ten.

I agree - I'm a newbie bettor (at least in-season bets), and considering I won two teaser bets this past week (Giants -1/Ravens +8.5 and Seahawks +9/49ers -1), I'm probably riding a bit high on teasers lol. With that said, I do think the best bet for a winning teaser for this weekend is Panthers +7.5/Bears -1.5, but as I said, I'm too superstitious to fug with betting on Panthers games now after I stayed away and we won.

But I couldn't help myself and threw some money on a 6.5 point teaser anyway :P (Cards +10.5/Bears -1)

The Rams lost 2 offensive linemen against the Skins. The Bears should win that game if Cutler can get back on track. I also agree that you pass on any bets for or against involving a team you are a fan of. I do think the Rams have a chance to beat the Bears with Janoris and Finnegan defending the Bears receivers. Rams could have beaten Detroit in week one on the road and I see the Bears and Detroit being on the same level. Forte is a question mark this week but Michael Bush can negate that. Rams have played 2 games in domes as well which could matter.

Am I seeing this right, that the consensus is us getting +1.5 at BOA for Thursday night?

Any handicappers in here other than me (I am not great with spreads when my heart is involved)

Anyone who bets.... whats your thoughts on this spread? Since I feel like we will win and a lot of people will bet on NY..... feel like it's a decent play even if it jumps to 2 or 2.5

The spread on this game like any game means Vegas is hoping to get fans of both teams to bet on this game because they consider it a toss up since it is a road game along with the Giants issues in the running game, the secondary and the OL. The Panthers are sketchy because of the egg we laid in Tampa last week and our victory against a Saints team that has a sieve for a defense. Also, the Giants got all they wanted from Tampa. The general public is probably loading up on the Giants. I like the Panthers chances if they can neutralize the Giants pass rush with an effective pass game completing short passes to our running backs and tight ends on quick hitters and screens combined with Triple Trouble succeeding again this week. Panthers can get the long completions if they stay balanced (keep Eli off the field) and Cam checks down or throws the ball away instead of making risky decisions. I would love to see a few 2 back running back sets (with Tolbert at fullback in an I formation and Cam under center followed by inside running along with play action in those sets). Panther OL is in for a huge challenge this week. Will be a nailbiter but this is a game that the Panthers need to win to prove that they are getting over the hump.
