NFL 2010: Week 8 Picks

Denver Broncos (+1) vs San Francisco 49ers
The Broncos should be able to beat a team which has Troy Smith as its QB.
Outright Win: Broncos
v/s the Spread: Broncos (+1)

Jacksonville Jaguars (+6.5) at Dallas Cowboys
The Jaguars might have caught a break with no Tony Romo this week. Still, will it be enough to pull off a win with a weak pass defense?
Outright Win: Cowboys
v/s the Spread: Jaguars (+6.5)

Washington Redskins (+2.5) at Detroit Lions
The Redskins might win ugly, but they find a way to win. The Lions might end up losing close, but they lose more than they win.
Outright Win: Redskins
v/s the Spread: Redskins (+2.5)

Carolina Panthers (+3) at St Louis Rams
The Panthers had a win last week. I don't see them winning 2 in a row. And the Rams are good at home.
Outright Win: Rams
v/s the Spread: Rams (-3)

Miami Dolphins (+1.5) at Cincinnati Bengals
The Bengals' biggest problem is their QB. The Dolphins will take advantage all the offensive bungles by the Bengals. and the Dolphins are good on the road.
Outright Win: Dolphins
v/s the Spread: Dolphins (+1.5)

Buffalo Bills (+7.5) at Kansas Chiefs
The Bills almost pulled of a win against the Ravens. It will be tough to duplicate that effort against the fundamentally sound Chiefs.
Outright Win: Chiefs
v/s the Spread: Chiefs (-7.5)

Tennessee Titans (+3.5) at San Diego Chargers
The Titans would love to catch that mistake prone Charger team that has been showing up the last few Sundays. They just might. Even otherwise, I expect them to end up on top here.
Outright Win: Titans
v/s the Spread: Titans (+3.5)

Seattle Seahawks (+2.5) at Oakland Raiders
The Seahawks are a lousy road team. And the Raiders are coming of a high after a record breaking thrashing of the Broncos.
Outright Win: Raiders
v/s the Spread: Raiders (-2.5)

Pittsburgh Steelers (pk) at New Orleans Saints
The Saints will want to get back on track after that beat down they received from the Browns. The Steelers are no joke, even though its at home.
Outright Win: Steelers
v/s the Spread: Steelers (+0)

Minnesota Vikings (NL) at New England Patriots
No line on this game due to the uncertainty around Favre. The Patriots should have this irrespective of who is the QB for the Vikings. And yeah, I'm sure Favre will start.
Outright Win: Patriots
v/s the Spread: n/a

Houston Texans (+5.5) at Indianapolis Colts
Manning on Sunday Night. Enough said.
Outright Win: Colts 
v/s the Spread: Colts (-5.5)

Upset Special of the Week

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+3) at Arizona Cardinals
The Bucs might be 4-2, but the two games they played against good teams, they were pummeled. They should have no problems against the lousy Cardinals.
Outright Win: Bucs
v/s the Spread: Bucs (+3)

Homer Pick of the Week

Green Bay Packers (+6) at New York Jets
The Packers have a tough match up this week. Will the Packers Defense hold up the Jets running game to keep it close?
Outright Win: Jets
v/s the Spread: Packers (+6)

Last Week:
Outright Win Record: 8-6
v/s the Spread Record: 8-5-1

Year to Date:
Outright Win Record: 60-44
v/s the Spread Record: 48-50-5
