survival pool leagues..

Postby lacunacoiler » Tue Sep 07, 2010 5:08 pm

any got a good bet on which team should win their first game for a survival pool??

i looked at the schedule and their is no single matchup that is a cakewalk.. almost all matchups are so risky to select..

even in the TEN-OAK & NYG-CAR games, they are only favored by 6pts...

i have TEN as my 1st option right now coz they are playing @ home, but im still uncomfortable with this one because OAK revamped most of their defense & they are a much better offensive team with Campbell at QB...

my 2nd option is NYG coz they are at home too.. i just dont think a team like NYG is going to lose their 1st game against a CAR team with a new helmsman..

my 3rd option is MIA over BUF... BUF is still bad at offense, even if their defense is underrated.. and i do see MIA having the better offensive weapons to help them secure a W in week1

I like the Giants at home. Panthers have a good chance of getting blown out in this one

I'm going with NYG, too. They won their last 8 games in SEP.

Stay away from MIA this week. BUF is 11-5-1 ATS against MIA at home in the last 17 games. I don't know the overall record, but that's close enough to keep me away.

I went with the Dolphins. The Bills are just bad. I know they've underrated on D, but they lost T.O and that offense is a mess. Furthermore, they're dealing with a new head coach and I think it may take them a couple of weeks to figure out what their identity is going to be. I also believe Miami's a very underrated team, especially on defense.

I'm thinking about rolling with Chicago this week. They're 6.5 point favorites, playing at home and against the Lions.

I'm going with the Arizona. No way Sam Bradford and whoever they have as WR's are going to score enough points to win this week.

I had Giants but switched to Chargers. I just think it's a safer bet, do think the Giants will win though. Dolphins was up there as well
