Really? I wouldn't touch the Lions with a 10 foot pole.

My favorites are the Dolphins giving 3 to the Bills, Indy giving 2 to Houston and the Falcons giving 2.5 to a Dixon lead Steelers team with a healthy and motivated Michael Turner.

Dolphins haven't won in Buffalo since 2003. Their whole team has been looking like total **** this whole pre season. They only managed a FG against 2nd, 3rd, and 4th stringers when they played Dallas (against their 1st stringers).

See Buffalo last year? Remember that game with the Patriots? IN NEW ENGLAND.

I think the Saints will cover their spread... New England (Bengals don't look great)... Niners over Seahawks...Packers over Eagles.

Bears don't look that good. You have way to many favorites to hit that parlay of yours. Your book is just like thanks for the ten spot.

The Lions are no joke this year and the Bears are trash. Chicago's o-line is in shambles and you saw what Det's d-line is capable of. Quitler is good for a pick or four and his happy feet are busier than normal because of his lack of confidence in that line.

Stafford looks to me like he's going to take a major step forward this year. He looks like a different guy as far as confidence in the pocket. His improvements from last year to this year are comparable to Ortons, imo. Best also impressed me in the little I saw of him.

I am also going to hit em up on the moneyline.

+1.

Bears didn't play in the pre-season finale either. They haven't gotten their offensive execution on point as of yet.

Let's not forget that shiny new CB of theirs now...

I use playersonly.com but it is hard to get your bank to fund offshore gambling anymore. It's about the only one I know of that I can get my bank to accept.

I like Jim Schwartz a lot. I also like Stafford. And I like how it's a team of young, talented players.

That being said, the Bears are going to skull f them on Sunday.

Of course they are they love people to bet Parlays. It's hard enough to consistently pick one game right let alone more than one and they pay a lot less than the real odds. Betting is always for fun but you might as well try to win if your going to do it.

its fun to do parlays, i used to do $5 10 game parlays, because the astronomical odds of ever winning are there, but just the chance, when you hit 6-7 games in a row, makes it fun. if you lose, no big deal.

Yup....I'm on this one out of pure feel & instinct.

Line opened at Philly -1 and has been run up all the way to Philly +3 b/c of GB's pre-season performance & hype.

Joe pub is still hammering GB -3 at an 80% clip but it's going to be closer than most think.

I will have some pizza & beer money on Philly ML as well but I'll take the teaser points to + 9.5 & move through key numbers of 3 & 7.

Philly is a tough place to play for anybody & I'll side with the home dog here and be on the side most books will need.

GB -3:

I know you can use Visa All Access Net Spend gift cards to fund poker sites, anyone know if the sports betting sites take them as well? Its a good way to budget your gambling money, get around the blocks on bank accounts, and not have to give out your bank info to a site.
