Took Philly last week and am taking Arizona home vs Miami as of now.

This is a brutal week if you mainly pick home teams. The Rams did stink last week, but I don't trust Eli enough on the road and there's no way that the Rams are that bad...plus the added bonus of a lot of people probably picking the Giants causes me to steer away from NYG. Seattle is a much better team at home and plays SF, but SEA is missing their top 4 WR...ugh.

I'm done, I picked Indy last week. :~( If I were still in it, maybe Seattle at home, they are always tough there. So if I were you, I wouldn't pick Seattle due to my bad luck ;-D

I think the Giants at home are the safest bet this week. It pains me to say it.

if i had 5 choices last week, i would of lost all 5. Week 2 can be as weird as week 1 so id go with a lock pick nad not take a chance.

I see 6 matchups that are a possibility, but they all have their flaws:

Titans (+1) at the Bengals - the Bengals seem to be that bad, but why is Vegas giving the Titans a point here? They'd only be a 2 point favorite on a neutral field? They must be seeing something I'm not, which scares me.
Giants at the Rams (+9) - I've taken them in one league already, and this is my favorite matchup. The Rams were simply awful against the Eagles, but the Giants didn't really look that good beating my Skins, it's just that we were that bad. Eli tried to through 4 INTs - if the Rams DBs can catch better than Rodgers and Smoot, the Giants could be in trouble.
49ers (+8) at the Seahawks - if the Seahawks had anybody left on offense, this would be a lock. But no Morris, no Nasty Nate, obvi no Engram or Branch. . .they have a bunch of rookies and Julius Jones on offense. For some reason this scares me, but this is going to be my second pick I think.
Steelers at the Browns (+6) - I took the Steelers in one league last week, but two words scare me off this one: division rivalry (not to mention on the road).
Packers at Lions (+3) - another division rivalry on the road. Also, Lions only getting +3? As good as the Packers looked (good, not great) and as bad as the Lions looked (banged by the Falcons, that's all you need to know if you didn't watch it), I'd think it should be more. Another case where Vegas is smarter than I am?
Miami (+7) at Arizona - simply put, I just don't trust the Cardinals. Miami also didn't look that bad, and I watched the entire game. This one scares me.

Summary: I'm in 3 leagues, and I'll probably take the Giants in two of them and the Hawks in the 3rd. This is a brutal week.

Seattle Seahawks (favored by 7)

I don't think you can go wrong fading the 9ers. I went with Zona last week, and I don't see why I shouldn't pick Seattle this week.

Seattle home opener against a bad San Fran team on the road for the 2nd week in a row... I like it.

The Giants have won 10 straight games on the road?.. :-? I'd trust them more there than at home..
