Mark My Words - Here are the pro and college lines that I would put money on, and why:
Green Bay +6 over NEW YORK JETS - While Green Bay's front seven has a ton of injuries, I just don't see the Jets being able to score enough points and slow the Packers offense down enough to cover 6 points.
Buffalo +7.5 over KANSAS CITY - I never thought I'd say this, but Buffalo is a respectable team now that Ryan Fitzpatrick has taken over as their quarterback. Coupled with the fact that Kansas City is the most overrated team in football due to having the easiest schedule in the league, I absolutely love Buffalo's chances to cover a spread that's greater than a touchdown.
NEW ENGLAND -5 over Minnesota - I find it very interesting that Brett Favre has developed some nagging injuries (elbow tendinitis and hairline ankle fractures) that could keep him from extending his consecutive games played streak, which would conveniently protect his legacy from having that streak ended by a potential league suspension due to his "sexting" scandal. I also predict that one of Favre's close friends or ex-teammates will come forward and conveniently "admit" to hijacking his cellphone and sending Jenn Sterger the man-spam photos as a practical joke in attempts to avoid disciplinary action from the league and preserve his marriage.
P.S - Did anyone see the pass that Favre caught from Randy Moss on a trick play in the first game that the two of them played together as Vikings in Minnesota? I know it was only a "little dink," but still, it was worth watching.
NEW ORLEANS pick over Pittsburgh - I know that New Orleans has been struggling, but Drew Brees has now had a week to recover from the birth of his second child, and don't discount the advantage of a home crowd in the Super Dome on a Sunday night.
Michigan State +6.5 over IOWA - Michigan State is getting more points at Kennick Stadium than Wisconsin did a week ago. Given that Wisconsin won outright, and that Michigan State is stronger and more versatile version of the Badgers, I have to take the points in this one...especially with a potential National Title game on the line for Sparty.
Florida +3 over Georgia - This game features two traditional SEC powers that are underachieving this year. Not only is Florida better than Georgia this year, but this game is being played on a neutral field. Nobody has accomplished less with a better recruiting base than Mark Richt has during his tenure at Georgia. Kiss your job good-bye buddy.
