|San Francisco-St. Louis||27.1||27.1-0.0||CORRECT|
The NY Jets matchup with the Seahawks looks about as solid a pick as you can get. Even so, the NY Jets haven’t won any of their games on the West Coast this season, losing to San Diego, Oakland, and San Francisco. We’ll see if they can overcome this weakness.
Another interesting match that could go the other way: Arizona vs. New England. Arizona has the edge, but New England needs it and Arizona doesn’t. (As a minor aside, a friend of mine has about $5,000 riding on this game. He’s one a dozen people left in a rather large football pool. Why he chose the Pats to win, out of all the possible picks this week, is beyond me.)
