Last week wasn’t great for us. Was it great for those who pick games?
Strange results spread across the list of 16 competitions. A 3-0 lead in the prime-time finals pushed me to 0.500, at 8-8. MDS 7-9 is over.
For the year, I’m 17-14-1. MDS is 14-17-1.
This week, we differ again over five matches. For all shots, scroll away.
Steelers (+4.5) in Browns
take MDS: Steelers defense misses TJ WattAnd their crime is not very good. Brown rebounded from last week’s shock loss with a solid home win.
MDS selection: Browns 24, Steelers 13.
Take Florio: Who has to meet players only after two games? Brown, it seems. In a short week, it can be very difficult to expect Brown to put the poor chance of the Jets behind them.
fluoro choice: Steelers 20, Browns 14.
Texas (+3) in Bears
take MDS: This Texas team looked better than I expected, while the Bears don’t seem to believe it Justin Fields And they ask for plays to avoid having to make him do too much of anything. I love Texas in an uproar.
MDS selection: Texas 17, Bears 14.
Take Florio: Bears gave Battle Pack more than expected, and the end result was misleading. Texans’ ability to tie ponies looked a lot worse after the ponies got a goose from a jaguar.
fluoro choice: Bears 17, Texas 13.
Raiders (-2) in Titans
take MDS: Perhaps the Titans’ biggest disappointment is this year, the top seed from last year who looks like a rebuilding team this year. The Raiders took their first win of the season.
MDS selection: Raiders 23, Titans 20.
Take Florio: How are the raiders favored in this one? They blew a 20-point lead at home. And while the Titans were blown up Monday night, those were the bills. In a 0-2 team battle where one has a new system and the other doesn’t, I’ll take the system that doesn’t.
fluoro choice: Titans 24, Raiders 20.
Heads (-6.5) in ponies
take MDS: Ponies are in a mess now. I find it hard to even see them keeping them close to the bosses.
MDS selection: Chiefs 31, Colts 10.
Take Florio: The Chiefs once broke a huge lead during an Indy playoff. It won’t happen again.
fluoro choice: Chiefs 41, Colts 17.
Billing (-5.5) in Dolphins
take MDS: The Bills won the competition two weeks in a row, and they will continue to compete against the Miami team who is also 2-0 but not in the same class as Buffalo.
MDS selection: Bills 28, Dolphin 17.
Take Florio: The Buffalo defense should be better equipped to stop the Miami attack or twice the Miami defense would be than the Buffalo attack.
fluoro choice: Bills 38, Dolphin 31.
Black (+6) in Vikings
take MDS: Lions attack is better than people think, but secondary ones will face them Justin Jefferson And the Vikings would have a small victory.
MDS selection: Vikings 35, Lions 31.
Take Florio: This has become a big, sneaky rivalry, with two Barnburns in 2021. The Vikings should be able to win at home. Whichever team wins, the end result should be close enough for the lion to cover.
fluoro choice: Vikings 27, Lions 24.
Ravens (-3) in the Patriots
take MDS: Lamar Jackson is playing some of his best in football right now, and he’ll be cruising for a big game in New England.
MDS selection: Ravens 31, Patriots 20.
Take Florio: If Baltimore can get it JK Dobbins Once again, crime will get a big boost. Other than Lamar Jackson, no one is able to create true dashing arenas for crows. Meanwhile, the New England crime is still a work in progress,
fluoro choice: Ravens 24, Patriots 14.
Bengals (-4.5) in Gates
take MDS: After a rough first couple of weeks, the Bengals will finally hit the board with a high-scoring win against the Jets with a terrible defense.
MDS selection: Bengals 38, Gates 27.
Take Florio: Bengals are getting desperate. The fact that the planes were flipped upside down by planes last year will reduce the likelihood of them being scrapped by planes.
fluoro choice: Bengals 31, Jets 24.
Eagles (-6.5) at leaders
MDS selection: Eagles 28, Leaders 20.
Take Florio: The Eagles are like Team Destiny. This is something leaders haven’t looked at in over 30 years.
fluoro choice: Eagles 31, Leaders 17.
Saints (-3) in panthers
take MDS: Rebuilding the Panthers hasn’t taken off under Matt Ryol’s leadership, and he’s running out of time to turn things around.
MDS selection: Saints 17, Panthers 10.
Take Florio: If Matt Rhule doesn’t win this, he may not make it to the end of the season. (He might not do that anyway).
fluoro choice: Panthers 23, Saints 20.
Jaguar (+7) at Chargers
take MDSThe Jaguars played great football for new coach Doug Pederson, and being upset here wouldn’t shock me, but I think they would lose to Justin Herbert And a good shipping crime.
MDS selection: Chargers 28, Jaguar 27.
Take Florio: Jags are on the rise. They are good enough to keep this close, and possibly win it.
fluoro choice: Chargers 24, Jaguar 20.
Rams (-3.5) at Cardinals
take MDS: The NFC West seems wide open now, but in this big game, I’d love for the Rams to make a statement that they’re still the best team in the division.
MDS selection: Rams 30, Cardinals 17.
Take Florio: Keeler Murray It looks like a different player when he has the ability to move and is given the green light to use it. In the playoff against Rams, he was not very healthy. It is now. # Lightkiller Cook.
fluoro choiceCardinals 30, Rams 23.
Hawks (+2) at Seahawks
take MDS: I don’t have high hopes for the Seahawks this season, but I see them improve to 2-1 against the Falcons.
MDS selection: Seahawks 24, Falcons 20.
Take Florio: The Seattle team may not be great, but they are good enough to beat the Hawks at home. if not, Drew Lock The time is coming.
fluoro choice: Seahawks 17, Falcons 14.
Packers (+1.5) in Buccaneers
take MDS: The Pirates’ defense has been excellent so far this season and will play well against it Aaron Rodgers In what numbers it will be a close and low-score match.
MDS selection: Pirates 17, Packages 16.
Take Florio: Bucs turn towards a team that likes to run the ball and play defense. All it takes to win. That will be enough to win on Sunday.
fluoro choice: pirate 23, packages 20.
49ers (-1.5) at the Broncos
take MDS: Jimmy Garoppolo better than Tree Lance, which means the 49ers have a better chance of winning in the short term, because Lance’s injury was to the 49ers’ long-term plans. They will win a tough fight Russell Wilson And the Broncos.
MDS selection: 49ers 24, Broncos 20.
Take Florio: Something is not right with this line. Broncos are intertwined in the mechanics of play. 49ers have an elite roster. Now that the quarterback situation is resolved, look for the 49ers to start thriving.
fluoro choice: 49ers 34, Broncos 20.
Cowboys (+2.5) in Giants
take MDS: Yes, the Giants are 2-0, but they are close to winning 2-0. Yes, cowboys without Duck Prescottbut Cooper Rush Proven to be able to adequately fill the filling. I am amazed at the preference of the giants.
MDS selection: Cowboys 28, Giants 20.
Take Florio: Some teams are set to win 0-2. Some teams 2-0 are set to lose. The Giants are set to lose, and the Cooper Rush Cowboys can do enough to win.
fluoro choice: Cowboys 21, Giants 17.
