Ben's Picks

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

  • Loser - 5* Detroit v CHICAGO --- Lions D impressive v Seattle. Bears had a cakewalk, won’t run up the score.

 

  • Winner - 4* Oakland v BALTIMORE --- Raiders headed to # 1 draft pick. Ravens D-line will dominate.

 

  • Loser - 4* Tampa v ATLANTA --- Bucs have Vick’s #. Falcons come back down to earth.

 

  • Winner -4* Pittsburgh v JAX --- Jags have the Steelers # at home.

 

  • Loser - 3* New Orleans v GREEN BAY --- Saints B2B road. If Favre has anything left, it’s now or never.

Below are the potential plays for this week; I have already added the 4 points. (Check individual game BPR's for any  line movements):
