NFL Week 2: Playing With House Money

Blemish less weekends are few and far between. But that is what The Sportsyack did to open the NFL season, going 2-0-1 ATS on documented picks, 4-0-1 if you count our very drunken Redskins +3.5 wager we made Sunday night, as well as a small play we made Monday Night on the Ravens under. Our clients are positioned to double down on their man for Week #2, and we're here to provide them with big, fat winners. Let's go to the video tape!

Baltimore at Cincy +2.5
The only thing hotter than a game that features a team on the back end of back-to-back roadies, who is the favorite, on a short work week, is some Mexican female sports reporter, who wears tight jeans and belly shirts.

That's what you get here. The Ravens, having played Monday night, get to travel to Cincy having just played in the Meadowlands, AND they're laying almost a field goal. That's what the Yack likes to call a 78 percenter.

Since 1992, only 22% of NFL teams have covered their back end, roadie/roadie game. Cincy is 4-1 ATS and SU, last 5 home games vs Baltimore. Offensively, the Bengals will be fine against Baltimore's stifling defense. In their loss to New England, the Bengals won the time of possession battle, and were a perfect 2/2 scoring touch downs in the red zone. You need to score points to win in this league, and we're still not sold on Baltimore's offense. Bengals win outright.

Pittsburgh at Tennessee -5
In case you haven't noticed, the Titans have won 9 of their last 11 regular season games. They're the best team in football, with the best coach in football, that nobody is even putting into the conversation.

Dennis Dixon did enough last week, just to keep the Steelers in the game, which allowed them to win in overtime. This week will be a different story. Last week against Oakland, the Titans only allowed 180 yards through the air, much of which was gained late in the game, when the game was a blowout.

Trust me when I tell you, Jeff Fischer will utilize this Rothlisberger-less situation, to punch the Steelers right in the fucking face. We don't like to label big games with stars, or 'stone cold locks', but if you only bet one game this weekend, this is the one to bet. 24-9 Titans.

New Orleans at San Fran +5.5
This game is going to be a bookie's wet dream. Unless of course you follow the Yack's advice. Defending Super Bowl champs, coming off a national TV win, with 3 days extra rest; Saints big, right? Hold it right there, buddy.

For starters, we weren't that impressed with the Saints win over Minnesota. They were lethargic, they missed chip shot field goals, and they still have the Super Bowl hangover. We're pretty sure that psycho bastard Singletary probably put the Niners through a Navy Seal-esque "Hell Week" practice, and we expect them to come out firing on all cylinders, in front of a national audience. San Fran was 6-2 SU at home last year, and in their last 10 games as a dog, they're an impressive 7-1-2 ATS.
23-20 San Fran in OT.

Last week 2-0-1
YTD 2-0-1
