Let’s get right to the action. And, talk about inflated spreads! Looks like a dog week.
Giants +7Â½ at Cowboys: The G-men are now 8-1 on the road and have no fear of Dallas, despite losing twice in the regular season. Why should they? The Cowboys are hurting with a less than 100 percent T.O and Romo. GIANTS.
Seahawks +7Â½ at Packers: No strangers here. Holmgren and Hasselbeck know Green Bay well. A big deal will be made about Favre, but the key is whether Ryan Grant outgains Shaun Alexander. We say Grant does. SEAHAWKS.
Jags +13Â½ at Pats: Jacksonville can win this game, but that means controlling the ball for 40 of the 60 minutes. The oddsmakers still love the Patriots, so we’ll take advantage of the generosity. JAGUARS.
Chargers +8Â½ at Colts: It seems San Diego’s 23-21 win over Indy earlier this year means nothing. The key matchup is Philip Rivers vs Peyton Manning. The Colts are rested and may have the services of WR Marvin Harrison. These are proud defending Super Bowl champs, who are not ready to lose. This is the one favorite we think will cover. COLTS.
