No more BYE WEEKS! So back to full weekly schedule for all teams, 16 games of predictions sure to go wrong! I am going to include my own content into this post for simplicity this week and going forward.
Atul’s Survivor Pick of the Week: Green Bay Packers
This is too easy. I am going to cheat and simply roll with a large point spread on a team I have yet to choose. Plus, the Cardinals are not good, and the Packers are at Lambeau Field. Easy Pickings!
The rest of this week is quite a chalk week as I view it, as I chose favorites across the board on the SU front, though went underdog on a couple of ATS plays (Jets and Vikings). Darnold may return and I feel there is a possibility of an ugly game type of cover for the Jets there, while the Vikings are a good team and the Patriots are not the uber-team they have been, and the combination could result in a close game or even a push. I dislike the 10 point spread for the Seahawks, but the only question is push or cover there in my mind. I opt for cover. Likewise for the Packers, and again I opted for cover. The most interesting spread to me is the Broncos game, as I am shocked that they only opened at 4 points considering Dalton is done for the year and leaving the work to Jeff Driskel.
Happy Football Weekend folks!
