Behind Enemy Lines in Week 2 of the NFL

Yo this is Nicky and we got back in the win column last week as we hit BYU in College and the Cards in the NFL to improve our record to 2-1 for the young season. I didn’t see anything I liked on Saturday and it’s never a bad idea to do a research day. In the NFL I seem some value both early and late. On Sunday morning I like the Cleveland Browns (-1.5) to go into Indy and add to their misery. The Browns know going 0-2 may not mean their season’s over but it’s puts them in quite a hole with dates with Miami and Tennessee looming before the bye week. A loss and the best they can do is be .500 when week 6 kicks off. They won’t let it happen. Buy the .5 if you don’t get it.

In the late game on Sunday night I like Falcons (+3.5) to keep the game close against the “dream team”. I know the Eagles are an offensive juggernaut but they do leave the door open and are susceptible to give up big points on D when playing a balanced team and the Falcons are that, particularly at home. I know this is flying into the fire with the Vick homecoming an all but the flip side to that coin is that Hotlanta will be fired up for their first home game anyway and they will not be embarrassed. That’s the Sunday chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!
