A killer week for me in 9 as I only picked 2 incorrect winners. 11-2 which puts me at 73-58 for the year. Solid turn around as of late. Can’t believe we are halfway through the year.
Green Bay Packers (4-4) at Tennessee Titans (4-5)
(+3.0) (0/U 49.5)
I just really don’t like the Packers. Haven’t since Rodgers replaced Brett Favre and I would love to see them be 4-5
Minnesota Vikings (5-3) at Washington Redskins (4-3-1)
(-2.5) (O/U 42.0)
Minnesota has come crashing down to earth again after a hot start. I see that continuing.

Really rough week 2 for me, going 6-10 and putting me at 15-17 for the season.
After only two weeks it has already been one of the most unpredictable seasons yet, especially in the NFC where 10 of 16 teams are 1-1 and only 3 teams, the Giants, Vikings and Eagles remain undefeated. On to week 3.
Denver Broncos (2-0) at Cincinnati Bengals (1-1)
(-3.0) (O/U 41.0)
Denver has established themselves as having the best defense in the NFL yet again and harassed Andrew Luck all game last week with 5 sacks and two defensive TD’s. Rookie QB or not it’s hard to pick against that defense.
Minnesota Vikings (2-0) at Carolina Panthers (1-1)
(-7.0) (O/U 43.0)

Picking winners in week 1 is a crap shoot. You just never know what good teams from last year will fall apart this and what bad team will step it up and become playoff contenders. But I am committed again this year so let’s get right to it.
Green Bay Packers at Jacksonville Jaguars
(+4.5) (O/U 48.0)
Everyone always like picking the Packers. They have a high powered offense with Aaron Rodgers, and Jordy Nelson is back after missing all of last season.
But you know who else has a high powered offense? This Jaguars team. Blake Bortles threw for 4428 yards and 35 TD’s last year. Mainly to his two elite receivers Allen Robinson (1,400 yards, 14 Td’s) and Allen Hurns, ( 1,031 yards, 10 Tds) their defense needs work but they can keep up with the Packers high paced offense.

Carolina Panthers at Denver Broncos
(+3.0) (O/U 41.5)
Well, well well! Football Season starts tomorrow. Did you hear me? FOOTBALL SEASON STARTS TOMORROW! Its Christmas eve ladies and gentlemen and we are starting off the year with a good one.
A few years ago the NFL started a new tradition where the first game of the year is on Thursday and the reigning Super Bowl champ hosts it.
This year it happens to be a rematch of last years Super Bowl, which the Broncos won 24-10
in one of the most boring, defensive controlled Super Bowls to date. But Peyton got his second ring and than retired, which is what I think most of us wanted.
Unfortunately for the Broncos, their starting quarterback will be an unproven rookie from Northwestern named Trevor Siemian.
I don’t know much about this kid and in general don’t pay much attention to preseason, but expecting any rookie QB to be successful in his first career start is almost always a stretch.
