Ben's Picks

All trends are ATS (Against The Spread) unless otherwise specified.

  • WINNER - 5* Baltimore v CLEVELAND --- Browns pumped for ‘Modell Bowl”, Ravens lacking offense, Jamal Lewis gets his revenge.

 

  • WINNER - 4* Chicago v DETROIT --- Bears defense decimated, Martz puts on the pressure, Greise needs to step up.

 

  • Loser - 4* Green Bay v MINNY --- Pack doing it with defense, Vikings do it back.

 

  • WINNER - 4* Tampa v CAROLINA --- Delhomme ?, the Bucs keep it close.

 

  • Loser - 3* OVER the Total --- Jets v BUFFALO --- Bills defense starting people off the street, Pennington has a field day. Buffalo rookie QB, Edwards, will try to keep up.
 
Picks Results = 3-2 for +6*
