2008 NFL WEEK ONE: MONDAY NIGHT MADNESS!!!

The first Monday Night football for the 2008 NFL season!!!! And a division rivalry doubleheader to boot!! This keeps getting better and better. Flash bailed on me for these picks, but I’m not scared. We had a terrible weekend (will post our Week One results after the Monday games), but I know the season is long. Plenty of opportunities to make you and us rich! Here is what I like:

Vikings +2 @ Packers: Tons of side stories for this one; division rivals, the Vikes jockeyed for Favre; two QB’s trying to establish themselves; both teams made huge offseason moves. Plus, these teams despise each other. Should be a great game.

The Vikings made the better offseason moves. Their D is STACKED!! The acquisition of Jared Allen may be the NFL’s best offseason move. Without question it is the best D-line in the NFL. Plus, their seconday is solid and they have good linebackers. The problem for the Vikes is their QB. Jackson is supposed to be the real deal, but until he establishes himself, AP will be facing a ton of 8 man fronts.

However, the same can be said for Aaron Rogers. He has yet to show he is the man either. This is his first real test. What will give?

I think the Vikes cover. Their D is better (even though the Packers have a solid D, too) and they have the best weapon in the NFL-Adrian Peterson. The last time he played in Lambeau, he left the game with torn knee ligaments and the Vikes were spanked 34-0. That was last year though. This year’s D will pound Rogers all night and AP will eventually break one. Be warned that the ATS numbers favor the Packers quite a bit. But I’m rollin’ with the Vikings. Take the Vikes +2.

Broncos @ Raiders +3: This may be my favorite game of the week. These teams HATE each other. It is such a great rivalry. The Raiders are getting no respect, but I think they are on their way up. Run DMC will have a huge year and good career. I think Jamarcus Russell will show a lot of people he was worthy of the #1 pick. Will that translate into a cover? I think so.

The Raiders are 4-0 ATS in their 4 meetings with the Broncos. They have played them close and this is a much better team this year than they have had in recent years. Lane Kiffin is coaching for his job in every game. He is a good coach and will have them ready. On the contrary, the Broncos are worse this year. I think this adds up to a Raiders cover. Take the Raiders +3.

As always good luck with your picks.

Runny


Flash Flash Pick (0-0)

Sometimes things just happen this way. My favorite bet of the week Is the Broncos to win and cover tonight. I am a Raiders fan and I am used to watching them get spanked during opening weekend. This pains me to go against Runny and The Men In Black but it must be done. Jamarcus is not ready, the offense has not scored at all in the preseason and the Broncos have a great D and rising QB in Cutler. Broncos win and cover easily.
