Cover much? NFL Games by the Spread, Week 2.

By Will Stevenson

Sometimes you need logic. Sometimes you need explanations. Sometimes you just need neither. This week in the NFL, we’re going to the spreads and we’re going for or against. The spread is a numbers game. You need to know who’s injured, who’s at home, road records, head coaches, gameplans, styles, time of game, primetime spot, divisional game, east coast or west coast, short week, etc. Many things go into the spread of these games, so if you’re looking to make some extra cash, choose wisely. So get your gas money ready and let’s go.

Most teams, at home, usually cover the spread, so i’ll use the spread information to base my picks. I’ll line up my picks against Mr. Lawrence Edwards and we’ll see how it turns out.

*All projected winners are in BOLD.*

If you are looking for deep insight with big words and well put together sentences, you are looking in the wrong place. I think as i am typing. There are misspelled words, fragmented sentences, improper punctuation, and incomplete thoughts. Nothing is in order, so just becuase I have a title, doesn't mean that's what it is about. I usually write my titles after the fact. I plan nothing. I just write what I am thinking at the moment, and then I just stop. I don't wrap things up, or have a conclusion and intro, just a whole bunch of words coming from a brain that should have been analyzed as a child, but now has 30 years of misguided wisdom. So there you have it.
