Free Football Picks

So if Tom Brady does not get hurt, we are probably looking at a 3-1 record to start the season, however he did so we start out 2-2. Here’s a look at my free NFL picks for week 2.

New York Giants (-8.5, O/U 41.5) @ St. Louis Rams

Pick: New York Giants (-8.5) - The Rams are arguably the worse team in the NFL, getting blown out in week one, 38-3 against the Eagles. While the Giants, although not looking like Super bowl champions, but doing enough to beat the ‘Skins 16-7.  The Giants went 7-1 on the road in the regular season, plus another 3 wins in the playoffs to extend their record of 10 straight road wins in a season, and I like them to make it 11. Look for Brandon Jacobs to bowl over the feeble Rams defense.

Oakland Raiders @ Kansas City Chiefs (-3.5, O/U 36)

Pick: Kansas City Chiefs (-3.5) - Although I consider Damon Huard a mediocre Quarterback at best, you still have to like him better than Brodie Croyle.  The Chiefs hung in there for the whole game against the Pats, albeit without reigning league MVP Tom Brady, and were one play away from overtime.  The Raiders spent over 200 million dollars this off-season on “talent” but were embarrassed in their home opener 41-14 by a less than stellar Broncos team.  I expect the Chiefs to get it done at Arrowhead by a touchdown.

Buffalo Bills @ Jacksonville Jaguars (-5.5, O.U 37)

Pick: Jacksonville Jaguars (-5.5) - Buffalo looked great in their season opener, just smashing the Seahawks 34-10, while the Jags could do nothing on offense against a very stingy
Titans D.  So why am I picking the Jaguars?  Well, historically Jacksonville has been a much different team at home as opposed to the road, playing physical, smash-mouth football in their own house, and I look for this trend to continue.  Although the Bills are a young and up and coming team, I am not completely sold on them yet.  The Jags are expected to challenge for the AFC crown and I will be shocked if they start the season 0-2.  Jacksonville is 18-6 at home over the last 3 seasons.

Philadelphia Eagles @ Dallas Cowboys (-6.5, O/U 47)

Dallas Cowboys (-6.5) - The Cowboys looked mighty impressive in week 1, going on the road and just dismantling what many believe to be a solid Cleveland team. The Eagles also looked good in week 1, but it was at home to the aforementioned worse team in the league Rams.
Philly is banged up at receiver, with their top two pass catchers likely out for this game, Reggie Brown and Kevin Curtis.  While Dallas got some great news as it looks like Marion Barber will be good to go on Monday Night.  I like the Cowboys by at least a touchdown in their last home opener at Texas Stadium.

Be sure to check back next week with my free football picks for week 3.  We love taking money from the bookie I hope you do to.
