Superior team at home with the better QB is what I look at early on. Nobody is beat up yet, nobody is in a double anything or coming off anything.
So we look at a weak team on the road. with a subpar QB.
BINGO!....Raiders at Indy.
I did mention...Stone Cold Lock. There is no game on the board as lopsided as that one. I'd bet my Jimmy Brown mint condition 1958 rookie card on it.
The Raiders stand no chance of any kind, the power could go out() and they still get pummeled.
Week two is just as one sided, the Pats will be all over the hapless Jets. Yes the home team with the stud QB....easily.
Week three it's the silver and black again, this time up in Denver on a Monday night. This might be the easiest of the three. Poor Raiders
Now we start seeing situations that need to be looked at, some study involved.
