I'm all in on Dallas. Made the weekly $25 bet in entertainment points with Chuck Freimund, taking the Cowboys. I know because of past failures it's easy to write the Cowboys off, but I think they really have something here. And even if Prescott and Elliott do hit a rookie wall or get injured, don't underestimate a Tony Romo / fresh Albert Morris combo carrying the offense through the playoffs. That's looking quite a ways ahead, but for now just give me the Cowboys this week and another couple of pizzas from Chaz.
13 points - New England (-13.0) over San Francisco
I'd take New England if the spread was 35.
12 points - Miami (-1.5) over Los Angeles
So thus begins the Jared Goff era, and while I'm a bit concernced after streaming Miami's defense in every fantasy league I'm in, I think my efforts will be rewarded against the rookie QB.
11 points - Pittsburgh (-7.5) over Cleveland
FanDuel stack - Big Ben, Le'Veon, Antonio
10 points - New York Giants (-7.0) over Chicago
9 points - Oakland (-6.0) over Houston
I'll say it again, I like Oakland on the road this season. Based on their early road success, they've been able to sustain that attitude and start the season 5-0 when away from the Black Hole. Now, technically this is a home game but it's being played in Mexico City.
8 points - Arizona (even) over Minnesota
The freefall continues for the Vikings.
7 points - Kansas City (-7.0) over Tampa Bay
Lots of talk about Oakland, lots of talk about Denver, and yet here is Kansas City leading the AFC West at 7-2. I am still optimistic about Tampa Bay's chances and their future with Jameis Winston, but I like the Chiefs here.
6 points - Jacksonville (+6.5) over Detroit
Okay, you'll probably lose this bet. BUT if you have some money to spare, but $100 on Detroit to win the Super Bowl. Cleveland earned a title finally with the Cavs, the Cubs won the World Series, Leceister City overcame the biggest odds in sports history to win the Premier League, and President-Elect Donald J. Trump! It's the year of the underdog. Lay down a hundy and good luck!
5 points - Tennessee (+3.0) over Indianapolis
Which team that kicked the Packers ass in the last two weeks is the better team?
4 points - Buffalo (+3.0) over Cincinnati
IF Mike McCarthy is in fact fired at seasons' end, Marvin Lewis will either be fired one minute before or one minute after him.
3 points - Seattle (-6.5) over Philadelphia
Tricky line, but I like the Hawks at home.
2 points - Carolina (-3.0) over New Orleans
1 points - Washington (-2.5) over Green Bay
Just enough people think that the Packers are going to lose this week that they'll probably win. But I wouldn't bet on it.
