Last Week: 7-7, Locks 0-5
Season 43-49-2, Locks 10-19-1
Obviously my locks over the past two weeks (1-8-1) have been horrible, on the bright side the non-locks came through with a 7-2 record. So do I quit and cut my losses now? Of course not. This weeks slate is not big on quantity but has some late games with lopsided point spreads..
Green Bay -9.5 v. Washington - The one sure thing over the past five weeks are the Packers, who have won five straight going 4-0-1 against the spread in the process. The GBP gets it relatively easy for one more week before road games at Arizona and Kansas City.
Cincinnati +6 @ Baltimore - After picking the Chargers to win in Charm City last week, I foolishly go right back to the well and take the visitors plus the points. The Bengals may get a similar reality check but am still not fully sold on the Ravens.
Arizona -17.5 v. Houston - This may be a trap game, but the Texans are every bit as bad as this point spread says.
Chicago +12.5 @ Tampa Bay - A lot has changed, but the Bears beat Tampa on a Thursday night a year ago around this time. It will take a lot for Chicago to win but they should keep it interesting.
Seattle +5 v. New Orleans - A loud barking home dog finishes this slate. The Seahawks are 2-4, including 0-2 at home and without Russell Wilson. All of that said the Seahawks remain a tough out in the Monday night game.
