I want to start this thread so we can discuss picks for the upcoming weeks.
Looking at Week 3 I see a couple options.
Chicago vs StL - 9 point favorites
Dallas vs TB - 7 point favorites
NO vs KC - 9 point favorites
Pit @ OAK - 4.5 point favorites
In terms of Yahoo picks as of now, 27% picked new orleans, 21% picked San Fran. SF is a 7 pt favorite @ Minnesota.
11% are on Chi and Pit.
Only 2.69% on Dallas.
As it stands now I'm leaning towards Pit as my favourite pick. I think they are consistently decent, and Oakland just sucks so bad. There's also not that many good times in the future to use Pittsburgh.
A lot of people have strong principles about never picking a road team, or never picking a divisional game. I am not one of those people.
So that is the pick I like the most...at the moment.
I don't trust the bears and st. louis put up points this week against wash so i'm hesitant to take that. Also chi has some good future value.
I also don't trust dallas. They got stomped by seattle, and tb gave nyg a run for their money this week. Not going there.
I think Saints vs KC has to be my 2nd favorite. The saints look out of form, but I think they are too good to lose to KC. The saints eliminated me last year though in my 2nd chance pool, so i am a little wary to take them.
Lastly that San Fran @ Minny game wasn't even on my radar. They will probably win, but I'm not as comfortable with it as Pit @ Oak, and SF has way too much future value to use them now.
So as it stands in my 2 pools I'm looking at taking Pit and NO.
