So each week we bet â€œplayâ€ money on a few games. For our rules please see our first Pong A Long Picks Post.
We wanted to really make a splash in Week One and bet $75 over three games. Yeah, thatâ€™s right .. high stakes baby. our Selections:
Kansas City Chiefs +3 (-105) vs. Houston Texans -3
Risk $30.00 to win $28.57
We watched the Chiefs HBO special and were pretty impressed. Not really with the Chiefs per say, but really with the quality of programming that HBO continues to pump out. Houston has a new QB, an old RB, and an average defense, so we will take those Chiefs as they are getting the points.
Denver Broncos -3 (-120) vs. Buffalo Bills +3
Risk $25.00 to win $20.83
We hate to go against the hometown team here, but ever since finding out that Travis Henry has 9 children with 9 different women, we have to think that he is going to do his all to earn each of those paychecks. The Bills D has looked terrible this pre-season, look for Walker and Marshall to abuse the secondary.
Detroit Lions +2Â½ vs. Oakland Raiders -2Â½
Risk $20.00 to win $18.18
Josh McNown is leading the worst team in the NFL last year against the Lionsâ€™ potentially powerful offense. We wouldnâ€™t have bet this one if Culpepper was in there, but it should be a gimme getting the points going against Suck McNown.
Andddd weâ€™re off to another Pong A Long Picks Season! Wish us luck!
