    as bad as the colts looked arizona doesnt deserve to be touchdown favorites on the road to anyone. the colts sucked in week 1, but at a home opener a touchdown looks nice. same with the saints. yeah the pats are great and all but the saints at home is always a tough place to play. my hunch is one of those teams wins straight up and screws a lot of teasers, parlays and survivor pools

    Nothing really stands out as being "fishy". If I had to choose a fishy line the Rams being favored is a bit fishy to me.

    Having an opinion on who covers and what constitutes a fishy line are 2 different things.

    To me a fishy line is one that makes no sense. A fishy line for me is one where the book is begging you to take a side, as the line makes no sense. I don't really see any like that this week.

    Jax looked great while Tenn lost to a very good Oakland team. That line looks about right, Jax isn't going to all of a sudden be favored off one win against an over rated Houston team.

    Dallas "only" 2? Not many road teams are favored at Denver. Around a FG sounds about right.

    NE always gets bet, for me its too many points to lay on the road but the line itself is fair.

    Green Bay +3? They looked very good against one of the best teams in the league, while Atlanta struggled and almost lost to Chicago. Line seems about right.

    I agree with skins85, the Colts may surprise some people this weekend. Week 2 is a prime week for over reaction by the public. The Rams favored over Washington? Off a win against a pathetic Colts team?? Washington is winning that game.

    i hope your right about that Skins game. 0-2 would suck.

    On another note I'll try to give another angle.
    the Rams have looked like a much improved team with McVay as the HC. He was the former OC and QB coach for the Redskins last season.
    yes he is very young but he improved Kirk Cousins tremendously. Also McVay was cranking out top 10 offenses in his time at Washington .
    During the preseason you can to see that McVay has the same offensive style he use at Washington and his Rams team responded very well.
    Washington looked like shit in the preseason and it carried over to last week. The Redskins Offense is not in sync and the OLine struggled vs a blitz happy Eagles. In the offseason The Skins lost 2 1000 yard WR's and the transition hasn't been smooth so far. Pryor is a athlete but still learning how to be a WR.
    McVay knows Cousins tbetter then any QB on the Schedule this season . McVay has a signed ball as a thank you gift from Kirk Cousins that reads
    "I owe you my career " . IMO the Rams are favored because they are the better team right now.
    I wont place any $ on this game but I hope my Redskins play better this week

    Yea very odd this week doesn't seem to be a fishy Line week. Packers +3 is about right considering falcons were -5 last year vs packers in playoffs and falcons blew them out.

    The rams -3 is shocking , I had them as +4 .....Hard to believe they are 7 points better. That defense has been good for a few years ....

    Further fishiness -Pinnacle has the Rams -3 +112 & ML -135, The greek has them -2.5 -150....

    The public has a slight lean at 56% on the Rams,,,,,But 75% Skins ML

    I could see the rams winning by 1 or 2 and stiffing all those spread bets and ML bets

    And if that happens that is a fishy line.
