Hello my sports investing friends!

PICK #1: Baltimore Ravens -5.5 vs Denver Broncos

Three days of extra preparation for Baltimore after playing last Thursday. The Ravens will be on a mission after such a disappointing performance on primetime television against the Bengals.

Denver travelling two time zones and playing at 1pm Eastern time. I believe they are overrated right now because of two soft and non-convincing wins at home.


PICK #2: Philadelphia Eagles -6.5 vs Indianapolis Colts


PICK #3: Washington Redskins +3 vs Green Bay Packers

I expect a letdown for the Packers after two roller coaster games against divisional foes (Chicago and Minnesota). Meanwhile, the Redskins will be focused after dropping their home opener to a mediocre Colts team. They will be ready to play this game against a hurting Aaron Rodgers.


BONUS PICK!!! I am leaning towards the Arizona Cardinals +5.5 against the Chicago Bears.

Arizona is coming off two fairly lopsided losses so the public’s expectations are very low (just like a stock that becomes underpriced at a bargain level).

The Bears lost a day of preparation since they played the Monday nighter. They are also going to be traveling two time zones.

Not an official pick, bet at your own risk but I just thought I’d give you a little extra!


Good luck my friends and enjoy the games!
