Went 2 and 1 on opening Sunday, with +4 on the stars basis, which hopefully will keep up to make up some ground on my dismal college beginning.
4 star- Seattle (Even) vs Atlanta
I love to go against teams who played on Monday night football the week before. Add in the Falcons are traveling across the country and they are beaten up from the physical Eagles and this is a great set-up for the Seahawks.
3 star- Arizona (-1) vs St. Louis
One of these two teams will begin the season 0-2, as I suspect the Rams will struggle in the brutal heat and grass field in Tempe.
3 star- Miami (+6.5) vs. NY Jets
3 star- Washington (+6.5) vs. Dallas
The Dolphins will be close in most of the games they play this season and the linesmakers are still not quite up to speed on this, as the Jets should be more like a 4 point favorite. Same deal with the Redskins, as their defense will keep things low scoring. Parcells beats Gibbs one more time, but it's a field goal or so difference.
Cincinnnati/Minnesota (Over 47.5)
The Bengals are right behind the Colts for balance and explosiveness on the offensive side of the ball. Minnesota, as they demonstrated in week one, are much weaker because of the Moss-loss, but Cincinnati's D helps them score more than last week. The Vikings are terrible in games played outside, but couldn't quite pull the trigger on the Bengals to cover, so just playing the total.
