Week 2 NFL: Locks, Lumps and Luck or Lack Thereof

September 15, 2011 | Thyrl Nelson

Let’s start by saying that this is not an inducement to gamble. Along with “close cover before striking” those may be amongst the most often ignored words of warning. This however may and probably will serve as the exact opposite of an inducement to gamble.

I would however encourage you to play The MobTown Sports Beat $15.70 Prop Card. It’s free to enter…and fun.


Here are my picks against the spread for this week’s NFL action. There are 5 that I love, 5 more that I like and the rest. I’ll keep track of my record and score as the season moves on in all 3 categories. Soon enough we’ll all know whether Vegas and another life is calling me. I’m even more interested to see if at the very least I do better in the games that I love than in those that I like and otherwise.
