I'm going with the Washington Redskins this week. If you look at their schedule for the year, I can't really make a pick with them other than this week. Plus, McNabb has been playing very well as of late. Use him before he gets hurt!

My other option would be to go with Baltimore. But in comparison to the Redskins, the Ravens have a number of favorable match ups in their future, such as at home in week 7 versus Buffalo, which is what I'm saving them for.

Plus, I think the Browns are more likely to pull a miracle upset than the Bills are. Have you guys seen Flacco's stats?

I must disagree with that logic. Unless you are dead set on using only home teams, I would not use New England this early. I try to use the home team when I can, but I certainly don't mind using New England in week 9 at Cleveland or in week 16 at Buffalo.

I'm going against DET again by picking MIN. Until Stafford comes back, I see an opportunity here. DET scored 30+ points last week, but won't against MIN's stifling defense in MIN. MIN gets its first win this week.

Kind of sucks, cause I thought DET could win 6 or 7 this year. If they go 0-3, that puts them in a hole.

sorry, i hope you didn't make that play yet, st. louis wins that game Straight up this week. i guarentte it.

Baltimore is the best play on the board, they hang 38-45 points on cleveland. best not to get too cute this early, and st. louis is in the perfect spot to beat washington.

I've played tenny, and atlanta so far, i'm taking baltimore this week.

out of baltimore, ne, and minny, the big three.......... minny has the best chance of losing, then ne, then baltimore in that order.....i would save minny till later in the year, when your sure they have there s*** together or atleast till after their bye week....

I gamble thousands of dollars on games every week, i know my stuff when it comes to point spreads and betting on the nfl, it's my most profitable sport, and Rams cover the spread and win straight up this week.

Respectfully, you don't give a reason why the Rams will win other than you bet a lot. I'd like to know why you believe they're in the perfect position to make that upset against the Redskins.

sorry i didn't see this yesterday, but washington was just coming off a very tuff game were they blew a late lead to the texans...coming off a lost like that, on the first leg of back 2 back road games, with a look ahead game against a divisional opponette coming up next week, a more important game than this st. louis game...st. louis at home, everything combinded, it was the perfect spot for st. louis to pick up a win. not too mention i believe sam bradford is the best qb coming out of college...also the line came out at washington -4.5, and it went the wrong way to only washington favored by -3.5, even though over 70% of the action(money) was coming in on washington, what this means is sharp money( big money Bettors), were on st. louis, people like myself that know what they talking about were on st. louis, you know that by the line movement......also washington had just got carved up by the texans and dallas's passing game, their defense is really bad, one of the bottom 5 defenses in the league.....i hope that maybe me saying sumting got you off playing wash, again i'm very sorry i didn't think to give my reasons beforehand.

I'm in a pool that we have to pick 4 winners each week. I was wavering on the Redskins game and took St. Louis solely on your comment. I figured it couldn't hurt. Thanks!!!
