Best Bets: New England feels like the lock of the year thus far, what with Indy beat up and tired after luckily escaping the new Mile High. And the day Peyton proves that he can actually go into N.E. and do anything but choke is the day I'll think otherwise. The Pats are finding their stride and will send a message meant to resonate come the playoffs. I figure they'll cover three every quarter and walk out with a double-digit win sealed with late-game TD drive.
As for the O/U lock, St. Louis/KC seems destined to be a high-scoring game, but 48's tough. Instead, there look to be two games that'll stay low enough to bet the under: N'Awlins/Tampa for one, and Chicago/Miami. But as much as I still don't buy into da Bears,. I worry that they could put 27 up, meaning Miami could cover at 14 and put the game over. I have no such worries about the Buccaneers, though.
