NFL Picks for Week 8

I'm feeling pretty confident after a big week, so I'm going to give you five picks this week, home team in bold.

Chicago (-13.5) over Cleveland-- Cleveland is TERRIBLE. and Chicago has a big comeback game after getting embarrassed by CP9 and Co. Cleveland has been held to less than seven points four times this year and Jay 'in the' Cutler is good for at least three TDs vs. the Browns.

New Orleans (-10) over Atlanta-- Drew Brees can lead the Saints to score 10 points in a matter of seconds. They scored more points (36) in the second half vs. Miami than all but four teams scored in the entire game in Week 7. Monday Night, in the Dome...it's going to be madness.

Indianapolis (-12) over San Francisco-- Indy is beastly, I'm picking them to cover against just about everyone (they've done so the last five weeks). This is in Naptown, where they have played just twice through the first six games of 2009.

Houston (-3.5) over Buffalo-- The only road team I picked this week has scored just 10 points in it's last two home games (vs. NO and CLE) after putting up 33 in it's first game at Ralph Wilson against Tampa Bay. Houston is good on the road beating Cincinnati in the Jungle and Tennessee. They lost to Arizona, but made a valiant comeback attempt after digging themselves a three touchdown hole early.

Arizona (-9.5) over Carolina-- Back when they made the schedule, this looked like a big matchup. Now, it might be one of the biggest blowouts of the week. Carolina is just happy they've played two of the worst teams in the league (Tampa Bay and Washington), otherwise they might be looking for their first win this week.

Last week I was pretty good and my wallet felt the rewards:

Indianapolis (-13) over St. Louis-- RIGHT
New England (14.5) over Tampa Bay--RIGHT
Green Bay (-7) over Cleveland--RIGHT
New Orleans (-6.5) over Miami--RIGHT

Also, before the season, I picked the Bengals to go 9-7 and CP9 to have a big year, throwing for 4,000 yds and 30 TDs. Even Who Dey fans called me crazy... he's now on pace for 30 TDs and 3,700 yds. Sit on it.
