We're off to another stunning start here at The Football Hoser, where we stumbled to a 7-8-1 week against the spread but managed to miss not only the Lock of the Week, but ALL THREE picks in our Trifecta. We've joked about this in the past, but we're pretty sure if you simply bet the opposite of the games we feel strongest about, at the end of each season you'd have enough cash for a nice cruise while we'd still be dodging calls from our bookie.
We also were 11-5 straight up. Whoopee.
The remainder of the season will work this way, with the Thursday night game coming separately and and the remainder of the schedule at some point on Friday. Unless it doesn't. We function on the same schedule as Lindsay Lohan on a binge -- sloppily and erratically.
Denver (+3) at KANSAS CITY (42): We'll stay with the Chiefs as the hot hand on a short week. Peyton Manning looked a little lost running an offense that requires less chicken dancing than he prefers, and with C.J. Anderson nursing a bum toe (and sinking the hearts of a million fantasy owners), Kansas City should be just fine. CHIEFS 26, BRONCOS 20.
Lock of the Week: 0-1
