It’s time to get the ball rolling. I’ll do it a little differently this week. I’ll throw a Confidence Meter in. 1 being lowest, 10 being highest. Bet accordingly. If you win early and have a little house money, take some liberties. Otherwise, stick with the high confidence locks. Enjoy!!

NFL

Arizona -1 @Chicago. 9 on the confidence meter. I love the Cards here. One of the 3 best rosters in the NFC.

San Diego/Cincy  47. 7 on confidence meter. 2 really good QBs and you’ve got a higher scoring affair. I’d be surprised if both teams aren’t in the high 20’s

Stl -3 @Washington. 8.5 on confidence meter. Rams are legit on defense and the Skins backup QB will get eaten alive by this STL front 4

Dallas/Philly  55. 5 on confidence meter. I expect this to be a high scoring game, but the Eagles under Chip Kelly have notoriously started games slowly.

Seattle +3 @GB. 3 on confidence meter. I think GB is the best in the NFC…but Seattle HAS to win this game. Starting 0-2 in the NFL is a bye bye moment…

NYJ +7  @Indy. 5 on confidence meter. This Jets defense is really really good, and the Colts don’t have much of an OL. Couple that with the Jets elite secondary and you’ve got a low scoring close one.

NCAA

A&M -34 vs Nevada. 6 on confidence meter. Only reason this isn’t a 10 is because I don’t know how long before they go let the 3rd stringers play

Bama/Ole Miss UNDER 52. 8 on confidence meter. 2 really good defenses. Low scoring SEC affair

LSU/Auburn UNDER 49. 7 on confidence meter. This has all the makings on a 13-7 game

GA Tech -2.5 @Notre Dame. 10 on confidence meter. ND has a lot of talent but they just lost their starting QB for the year. Ga Tech is a good team. A very good team

Kentucky +3.5 vs Florida. 7.5 on confidence meter. Kentucky has a ton of young talent and Florida is in a massive transition.
