      New Orleans Saints (- 6 1/2) Over Chicago Bears

      The Saints should be pissed off after losing a tough game against the Super Bowl champs in Green Bay. They'll take their frustration out on the Bears, who overplayed last week...

      Detroit Lions (-8 1/2) Over Kansas City Chiefs

      Yeah, the point spread is high, but the Lions really are that good...

      Baltimore Ravens (-6 1/2) Over Tennessee Titans

      The Ravens crushed the Steelers, and will have a far easier time against the lowly Titans...

      Dallas Cowboys (-3) Over San Francisco 49ers

      Totally blasphemous, I'm picking my most hated team against my favorite team. But Tony Romo has gotten a bad rap: the Cowboys are too good to go 0-2, and the 49ers aren't good enough to go 2-0...

      San Diego Chargers (+7) Over New England Patriots

      The Patriots look as intimidating as ever, and they have owned the Chargers. But with a TD spread, I expect one of two things to happen: A) The Chargers get the monkey off their back, or B) The Chargers fall less than a touchdown in the last minute...

      Philadelphia Eagles (-2 1/2) Over Atlanta Falcons

      Michael Vick is a peacock, and will have a great game in his return to Atlanta...

        Here's my results for week 1
        W-L-T record: 5-5
        Hot Picks record: 2-1

        Though I went 2-5 on Sunday, I still had a .500 record thanks to Thursday & Monday games.

        Hot Picks (in order of hotness):

        Washington Redskins (-3 1/2) over St. Louis Rams

        This is the first time I've ever picked the Skins in a game since starting this last season. RGIII will do that to you.

        Oakland Raiders (-2 1/2) over Miami Dolphins

        Despite their loss to the Chargers, the Raiders looked surprisingly good, and if they only had a decent backup long-snapper, they could've won the game. The Raiders need some work, but Miami is a great team to get in gear with.

        Baltimore Ravens (+2 1/2) over Philadelphia Eagles

        I was pretty sold on the Ravens after their crushing victory over the Bengals, but Vegas isn't convinced. I'll take them over the Eagles on the road.

        My other four picks:

        Cincinnati Bengals (-6 1/2) over Cleveland Browns

        The Bengals weren't really that bad last week: the Ravens just were that good. The Browns didn't overplay last week: the Eagles just underplayed.

        Houston Texans (-7) over Jacksonville Jaguars

        I'm not convinced the Texans are the AFC top team now after seeing the Ravens in action, but I am convinced they're better than the Jags.

        Dallas Cowboys (-3 1/2) over Seattle Seahawks

        In the past, the Seahawks are the kind of team the Cowboys would underperform against. That is the past.

        San Diego Chargers (-6 1/2) over Tennessee Titans

        The Chargers didn't look good last week, but I expect them to improve at home against a Titan team humiliated by the Patriots last week.

        Games I'm passing on and why:

        New York Giants (-7) Tampa Bay Buccaneers

        I'm not sure where these teams stand after Week 1, and the spread is too high to bet on the Giants.

        New England Patriots (-14) Arizona Cardinals

        After their win over the Titans, I'm sold on the Pats being back at playoff form. But fourteen points is too much a risk.

        Indianapolis Colts (+2 1/2) Minnesota Vikings

        Both teams are a question mark still, and the Vikings are a -120 pick.

        Carolina Panthers (+2 1/2) New Orleans Saints

        I may still bet on this game, but am planning to pass since the Saints are a -120 payout. If you can get the Saints at -110, it's a great bet.

        Buffalo Bills (-3) Kansas City Chiefs

        The better bet of the two is Buffalo, but it's a -120 game.

        Pittsburgh Steelers (-5 1/2) New York Jets

        I like the Steeler, but think it's gonna be a close game.

        San Francisco 49ers (-7) Detroit Lions

        I love the Niners, but respect the Lions too much to give them a touchdown.

        Atlanta Falcons (-3) Denver Broncos

        I'm pretty big on the Falcons this year, but holding back due to the Peyton X-Factor.
