  1. This is a tough week to make picks. It’s tough try to second guess who will play and who will sit.
    I’ll take a shot and say you have 6 SU picks that will be wring this week.
    Cleveland will beat CINCI
    Houston will beat TENN
    Minn will beat Chicago
    Oakland will beat DENVER
    Arizona will beat RAMS
    Seattle will beat SAN FRAN
    Keep up the great work at 1580 The Fanatic.
