The Bill Barnwell LARP Zone with Wonker Jones: Week 1 Picks
In the future I will add a section where I predict how the key match up will turn out, no need to make myself look like a fool in week 1 though
KC (+8) over NE
Take advantage of big lines, and you all hopefully remember how I feel about the chiefs.(i like chiefin). I think the Chiefs LB core has a big advantage (ZOMBOCOM).
Key Matchups: Chiefs secondary (Marcus Peters & Eric Berry vs GRONK)
ATL (-7.5) over CHI
ATL PK: ELIMINATOR LOCK OF THE WEEK
Just don’t see Chicago winning this game. Secondary and defense cannot hold back 24, Julio, and Matt Ryan.
Key: Deion Jones vs Jordan Howard
BILLS (-6) over NYJ
Everyone is expecting the Bills to run over the Jets in this game, and that might happen, but i think it will be a closer game for longer than others. LeSean Mccoy should have a big game and start his journey towards $2.5MM Extra, and hopefully Tyrod to Zay Jones turns into a legendary pair, but Muhammed Wilkerson should be able to make an impact, too.
Key: LeSean McCoy vs Jets
Baltimore (+3) over CIN
Divisional game, line under 3, generally, take the home team. No Vontaze Burfict, however, will hurt the Bengals attempts to get to Flacco and defend the run. Or maybe I just have a mancrush on John Harbaugh
Key: Bengals LBs vs Ravens OL
PIT (-10) vs CLE
Rookie QB vs pittsburgh, martavis bryant back, lets go Pitt.
ARI (+3) over DET ($$PICK)
I feel like detroit is overrated right now, so let’s take advantage of this one. The det running game should not have much room and the secondary of arizona won’t allow much breathing room.
Key:Badger vs Ebron
TEN (PK) OVER OAK
Tennessee because they are at home
Key: Khalil Mack vs Taylor Lewan
WAS (-2) OVER PHI
Home, division, under 3, let’s do it.
Key: Jordan Hicks vs Jordan Reed
HOU (-4.5) over JAX
Cannot see Bortles and co moving the ball very well in this game
Key: HOU front 7 vs JAX Oline
RAMS (+3) vs IND ($$PICK)
Scott Tolzien and Co, even when there is no Aaron Donald, give Sean McVay the chance for an auspicious start. I think he will take advantage.
Key Matchup: yikes
GB(-2.5) OVER SEATTLE
Game of the week, eh. Lacy revenge game, new Seahawks DL, Packers with no OL depth, i’m curious to see how this one plays out.
Key: Packers OL vs Sea Front 7
NINERS (+6) OVER CAM
Not sure about this game, I guess Cam might be little rusty and the niners might have a little fight in them to start the season.
Key: CAM WRs vs 49 Secondary
NYG (+4) over DAL
Eli traditionally carves up Dallas during the first game, and I guess that’s the only reason i need to make this not-money pick.
MIN (-3) OVER NO
No one on Mini’s OL is hurt yet, so lets go MIN
Key: Trae Waynes and Xavier Rhodes vs Michael Thomas
DEN (-3.5) Over SD
I think Denver’s defense will do a decent job shutting down the Chargers offense, though i might be very wrong.
Key: DEN corners vs SD Wideouts
