Not a bad start to the year. Our official pick on Baltimore came through despite being closer than anticipated down the stretch. Win and move on. That's all this is about. My other four recommendations also came through. I hope everyone survived.
Week two offers some interesting choices.
Houston will attempt to bounce back from the J-E-T-S loss against Tennessee. Good luck with that. I expect Tenn. to shut them down and Collins to move the offense enough to win by double d's.
Green Bay is home against the Bengals. I like Green Bay at home and expect them to win this game. However, I do not have a good read on the Bengals team yet. I think they can be dangerous and an upset special. Green Bay wins but I'm not comfortable using them this week.
Minnesota looks like a great pick on paper this week BUT they are on the road facing a division rival. Big no no's. It's an aggressive play that should come in but I will stick to my rules. Avoid road teams and division rivalries.
Washington heads home to face the Rams. What more do you need? I know Washington is mediocre and trust Coach Spags will have the defense ready but Washington's defense will stuff them and the Rams will have a difficult time scoring even with SJax. Washington wins.
In a nutshell, this is a really tough week. I like all four plays but they all have some legitimate concerns. I'm rolling the dice with Washington at home over the Rams.
