    Hmm... that is an interesting tease. I didn't look at the lines yesterday, but I saw it at +3 on Sunday. That extra half a point really makes it a lot more tempting. My only reluctance is that I have major doubts about the Cards this season. Even with the addition of Levi Brown I suspect they're O-line is going to get owned all year long. But I'm also not as high on the niners as most people. I don't think they're going to take a step backwards, but Norv works magic when it comes to young QBs. I suspect the niners will be only slightly better than they were last year, and I'm not expecting to see marked improvement from Alex Smith.

    So with all that in mind AZ +10.5 sounds pretty solid, because I don't think either team has a major edge when it comes to talent so double digit points is a pretty safe bet.

    Last year they were 30th in the NFL averaging 83.6 YPG, and dead last with 3.2 YPC. But they were in the middle of the pack (tied for 17th with SF) with 35 sacks allowed.

    I guess I can see how they might not be the worst rushing team in football again, but I think it's a stretch to call this front line good or even mediocre.

    I'm thinking NC State +13 @ Boston College might be one to consider.

    NC State has switched QBs, going with Harrison Beck.

    Beck led the Wolfpack down from a 25-3 halftime score versus UCF to almost win it, but lose 25-23 this past week. If he had played the whole game, I believe NC State would have won it.

    http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/print?id=3002962&type=story

    He's a Nebraska transfer and was one of the top recruited QBs in his Florida high school. He turned down offers from the likes of Florida, Florida State, Michigan, Mississippi, and Purdue to come to Nebraska.

    Here's more on him from this Aug 10, 2006 article.

    http://northcarolinastate.scout.com/2/555632.html


    I think Beck might end up as another Philip Rivers and gives the Wolfpack a good chance to keep the game relatively close. At least within the 13 points they are giving NC State this week.

    Leisure I am going with the LLV lock this week. It might be my only CFB play. :tup:

    My Week 1 lock won big for me (Cal covering over the Vols). The TK lock for Week 2 is....


    Indianapolis -6 vs New Orleans



    NO has been terrible against the AFC over the years, I like the Colts by double-digits as the NFL opens their schedule on Thursday night. :yes:


    Also looking at these three for a possible parlay:


    Minnesota -3 vs Atlanta
    Tennessee +6 @ Jacksonville
    San Diego -5 1/2 vs Chicago

    The fact that the Colts are playing at home and the Saints really haven't improved their defense at all tells me that the Colts will win by at least 10. :yes:

    Predicted score: Colts 38 - 28.

    I'm with you guys on this one. I probably wont bet it, just 'cause 6 is a lot of points to lay in the NFL. But I definately think you have the right idea. Pass defense may be the Saints most glaring weakness and Peyton is the perfect guy to exploit that. GL!

    Only make action bets on NFL?

    Action bets are the only kind one should make when gambling on the NFL.

    Only make action bets on NFL?

    The NFL is the only league for which one should place action bets.

    Either way that is excellent and sound wagering advice. :unsure:
