    POW ( 1 - 0 ) WK#2 MGM
    Taking the RAMS - 2 vs NO, if the rams allowed 28pts by Houston, how are they going to stop the RAM attack. Also like this because the game is on grass and NO plays mostly on artificial turf.

      rams -2 mgm mirage

      New Orleans is 1-11 ATS in weeks 1 and 2 (including last weeks no cover) - People will jump on New Orleans for the revenge factor - But IMO it is not so much a revenge on LAR as the Refs were the one that loss them that game - I think Rams actually have more motivation coming into this game - and with how Brees always starts slow to the season I like the rams to win it at home -

        Tennessee Titans -3. (Will Hill)
        The Titans showed their toughness last week. Vrabel has instilled that in them. Indy on second roadie in a row. Titans will be up for their home opener.

          Under 43 Packers/Vikes (Everywhere--Stations)

          I like what we saw from the Packers D last week, although some of that performance might be a reflection of Chicago's inept offense as well. I think Minnesota is committed to the run, which helps keep the clock moving. Line opened at 46, and quickly dropped down to 43. I just have to believe that the defenses will be a factor in this game given what we witnessed in week 1. The under in the Vikes last 5 vs. NFC teams is 5-0, 6-1 in their last 7 games overall and 5-1 in their last 6 games following a straight up win of more than 14 points. Green Bay has seen the under go 4-0 in their last four against the NFC North, 4-0 in their last 4 vs. a team with a winning record and 6-1 in their last 7 games on grass. The teams have stayed under the total in seven of the last nine times they played one another. Gimme the under, and let's hope this stays away from an overtime, (like last year), and turnovers, that bring on short field scenario's. Good luck to all.

            Cincinnati Bengals -1 (Westgate)
            The Bengals offense looked much improved last week as they outgained Seattle by 200 yards. But they did have a few drives stall out without cashing in for points which prevented them from winning. 49ers playing on the road again this week, and although they beat Tampa, that had more to do with Tampa turning it over 4 times vs. the Niners playing particularly well. Looking for the Bengals to get their first win of the year, with the Niners being satisfied to get on a plane for home with a 1-1 record.

              -13 Bal west gate

              A little higher than I usually like to bet, but I was a believer in the Ravens last year, too bad Lamar couldn’t throw in the playoffs. He seems to have rectified that problem though. Gilbert and others are out in the AZ o line and it took them everything to tie against Det, who are just not good. Bal should roll easily.

                Atlanta +1.5 (mgm)

                Falcons, although lost last week, out stated the Viks in 1st downs, passing yds, total yds. Get back the 2 picks and they might have fared a little better. Should be more comfortable at home and could put up an insurmountable lead should the Eagles start off slowly again.

                  New England/Miami Over 24.5 (1st Half) (Westgate)

                  Line is moving up this morning. Already at 26 in some spots. My thinking is that as hot and humid as it is going to be down there today, the defenses will be sucking air early and often. Miami was gashed last week early and NE was on fire right from opening kick. Look for the same to happen today.

                  Best of luck to all this week!

                  Halftime Score
                  New England 21
                  Miami 7

                    Lions +2 (MGM Mirage)

                    Chargers traveling east,too many injuries on both sides of the ball,home opener for the lions Stafford has a legit go to target with his rookie tight end.
                    I will take my chances with the home dog with all the hurdles that Rivers and company have to overcome,

                      ARIZONA CARDINALS +13.5 (MGM)

                      Rookie QB's first career road start and West to East travel = Bad. Public perception of Ravens dismantling of the atrocity in Miami coupled with 3 quarters of the Klingsbury-Kyler experiment looking to be a colossal failure = tremendous value on the Cardinals at this number. Kyler got it going in the 4th and that offense will always pose threats for defenses so I fully expect the Cardinals offense to improve greatly. I also fully expect the Ravens to come back to earth on both sides of the ball which makes this game much closer that 13.5 points. And of course this is as open of a backdoor play as you'll find in the event it's even needed.

                        Dolphins/Patriots OVER 24.5 1st half (Treasure Island, playMGM, Westgate)

                        I would expect the Pats to come out firing and put some points on the board early. I wanted to avoid the total for the game as I could see Pats taking the foot off the gas in the second half to avoid embarrassing their former assistant. The concern obviously is that the Dolphins won't be able to score but if they can get into the end zone early, the over looks great. If not, I would still expect Pats to be able to go over the 1st half total of 24.5 on their own.

                          Bears -2 (Circa)
                          simple logic here I think the Bears D is going to be all over the statue we call Joe Flacco which should force the Broncos to run a lot making them one 1 dimensional, I don’t see how the Broncos do much scoring for a comfy Bears win in a 17-6 type of game.

                            Rams -2 (MGM)

                            I must be missing something with the Saints. Their ATS record does not match their hype and Drew Brees is right at the age where every quarterback who doesn't eat avocado ice cream for dessert falls off a cliff. I was on Houston last week and will be fading the Saints again until their power rankings match their performance. They should be catching at least 3 points here (even though the Rams have little to no home field advantage).

                              Bengals +1 (Coasts Casino)

                              What a difference a week makes. Maybe this is a new Bengals team. Looking at the way the o-line protected Dalton, and the way the defense played, I think it is. Even with Mixon banged up (and active), they still have weapons at receiver and Gio Bernard is a pretty nice backup plan. Niners exploited a mistake-prone QB last week, now having to play a 1 p.m. road game for the second straight week.

                              Update: Should've typed faster - just checked line and it's now Cincinnati -1 on Coasts but it's actually a pick on other sites. If I need to stick with Coasts and take the -1 that's fine but if I can take the pick 'em I'll go with that.

                              NE/Mia UNDER 48.5 (Everywhere)

                              Yes, the Pats can name the amount of points they score, but why would they run it up? Brian Flores is a former coach for Belichek, why would he want to embarrass him? Why expose Brady to any sort of sustained pass rush when you could win the game with a third string QB? And how many points will Miami score, even in junk time, with an improved NE defense? This one has 31-6 written all over it.
