This shouldn't be much of a game. Burflict is back this week and Miami probably seems like a cupcake compared to Cincinnati's first 3 opponents.

Contemplating on whether I should start Jarvis Landry tonight or ride with Emmanuel Sanders. Any opinions on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Wow. Tough choice. Ordinarily I would go with Sanders in this situation, but I smell a let down with Denver and I fully expect Tampa Bay and Winston to throw the kitchen sink at the Broncos at home this weekend.

I hope we got some better games than last Thursday, pro and college.

Do you like your Falcons this week? I'm thinking about taking the points and Atlanta at home. That's one of the four underdogs I really like this week.

a team averaging 37 points a game is not the underdog.

I'd go with Jarvis Landry.

I like Sanders but I feel like the Siemien/Sanders connection will get game-planned for this weekend.

A team who is not favored to win, is in fact, an underdog.

not listening to handicappers is your first step towards getting more picks right.

they arent telling you what they think will happen. They are telling you what the majority of the public believes will happen.
Las Vegas is like 5% of what goes on in gambling across the united States. Theres billions more illegally going on.
they are neither the authority nor the indicator of what goes on,just the commercially acceptable choice.

not to people who think for themselves and dont believe everything they are told.

you obviously dont pick the favorite in every game of a straight up pickem all year.
That has to mean you dont deem the favorite as the actual favorite every time.

Oh, don't understand point spreads? For gamblers, Carolina is favored by 3 points. What this means is that Atlanta is the underdog despite points scored, playing at home, etc. So if you were to bet on Atlanta, and they lost by 2, since they were a 3 pt underdog, you actually win the bet, because they covered the spread.

If you need more elaboration, please let me know or I can forward you some documentation on the matter.

And those other 95% use vegas point spreads to actually lay money on games unless they have their head up their ass.

they do and they dont. Everyone moves the lines like they feel like doing.
anyone can become a bookie and make up their own lines. You will get plenty of people on both sides of it.
I said illegal,you dont know what the underworld is doing with the lines.

lol at I dont know point spreads or how they work. I've researched them for 3 years.
all you are telling me is what you believe to be true and suckered by time and again like every other John Doe. I know full well what the so called function is.
lol at talking about gambling like its some polite commercial business with rules that they follow.
its an illegal practice designed to screw you over no matter what.
its their objective to take money,not help you earn any.

I think they have a good shot, viewing it unbiased, it'll be a nice match up of something has to give. Actually playing a tough defense this time.
