    Help Me Win Money By Doing Pretty Much Nothing

    So, I'm now a part of this football pool full of rich people who don't give a shit about their money. Our friend put up the money and I have to make the picks. Here's how it works:

    - Each week, you pick 2 favorites and 2 underdogs based on the USA Today Thursday lines, plus the Monday night game.
    - Each game, you put up a wager of 500, 400, 300, 200, and 100 points.
    - Winner each week earns the weekly prize and top 3 players at the end of the year win a grand prize.

    I'll run a giveaway for you guys any week that I win. I'll post the lines every week and will ask for some expert opinions. I won't get any, but you guys are close enough. I put up nothing and can win a lot, so not much pressure. I won't disclose the prizes just yet. I will say that if I win the whole thing, it'll be a 5 digit payout.

    Thanks in advance for the help. Keep an eye on this when the regular season starts.

    Thank you, sir. It'd be interesting if I win. Otherwise, it's just me blowing picks.

    Alright here's the lines for week 1:

    New England -9 vs Kansas City
    Buffalo -9 vs. Jets
    Atlanta -7 vs. Bears
    Houston -6 vs. Jags
    Eagles -1 vs. Redskins
    Arizona -2 vs. Detroit
    Tennessee -2 vs. Oakland
    Bengals -3 vs. Baltimore
    Pittsburgh -9 vs. Cleveland
    Rams -3 vs. Colts
    Packers -3 vs Seattle
    Carolina -5.5 vs 49ers
    Dallas -4 vs. Giants
    Vikings -3.5 vs NO
    Denver -3.5 vs Chargers

    As far as underdogs, I'm liking the Redskins and Giants. Also got an eye on Oakland. Favorites, I like Carolina and Arizona (biased pick, but we beat them by 40 last time). For Monday, I like Denver.

    Shoot me some thoughts/suggestions.

    Can't really disagree with yours. Cards is a homer pick and I thunk they'll cover but I like Atlanta more. I also like Raiders more than Redskins but both solid

    I don't know how rusty Carr is after his injury. Plus, Tennessee plays solid at home.

    I had my eye on Atlanta, too. Large spreads just make me nervous.

    I really don't understand "lines" or whatever these are called. Maybe someone can help explain them to me.

    But as far as winners I'm thinking Bengals, Cardinals, Colts, Eagles will take care of the Redskins easy.

    Basically, the favorites are favorited by x amount of points. Like, Atlanta is favored to win by 7. To cover the spread, they'll have to win by at least 7.

    I went with Atlanta, Arizona, NO, Baltimore, and Oakland for week 1. Feel free to roast my decisions.
