    Week 1 Lines - Pick 'em Game

    Every week I'll set the odds for the games. Reply with your picks. Picks need to be in before any games are played. I will get them out weekly before the new week drops. We will have a running total for the year. For those unfamiliar with how it works:

    Minnesota (-2) at New Orleans (+2) - Minnesota favorite, New Orleans underdog
    If you pick Min -2, Min needs to win by at least 2 points. If they win by exactly 2 you tie, if they win by 1 or they lose, you lose. If they win by 3 or more, you win.

    If you pick New Orleans +2, New Orleans can lose by 2 points. If they lose by exactly 2 you tie, if they lose by 1 or win outright, you win. If they lose by 3 or more, you lose.

    In the event there is no line, the outright winner of the game will be the correct pick. If the line is (-3.5) there can be no ties.

    Minnesota (-2)
    at New Orleans (+2) Min 35-17
    Denver (-3) at Jacksonville (+3) Denver 54-0
    Oakland (+5) at Tennessee (-5) Tennessee 34-14
    Cincinnati (+6) at New England (-6) NE 31-10
    Cleveland (+3.5) at Tampa Bay (-3.5) Tampa Bay 34-20
    Indianapolis (-1.5) at Houston (+1.5) Indy 52-21
    Detroit (+4) at Chicago (-4) Detroit 50-46
    Atlanta (+2) at Pittsburgh (-2) Pittsburgh 33-14
    Miami (-2.5) at Buffalo (+2.5) Buffalo 26-19
    Carolina NO LINE at New York Giants NO LINE New York 15-6
    Green Bay (+2) at Philadelphia (+2) Philly 34-29
    Arizona (+1.5) at St. Louis (-1.5) Arizona 28-25
    San Francisco (+6) at Seattle (-6) Seattle 24-16
    Dallas (-2.5) at Washington (+2.5) Washington 22-16
    Baltimore (+1) at New York Jets (-1) Jets 34-28

    I'm not much of a gambler so....

    (+) means the game is favored in that teams direction. If they are favored by +6 then they are really favored? or is it the other way around?

    Other way around...

    Example...

    Detroit Lions +4 means the Lions are expected to lose by 4 points or more.
