After two weeks since assuming the role of Lead Guy Who Gives Bad Betting Advice on this blog, I'm off to a soaring start (0-2).
So to change my luck this week, I'm dipping into the well. While I could fruitlessly dissect other lines to find a more intriguing pick, I'm just gonna play it lazy and pick against the Raiders (@ Kansas City -9.5).
If being really really bad weren't enough for the Raiders, Randy Moss has been especially unhappy lately ("It's done sort of set in, man, and I'm tired of it," Moss said on his weekly Fox Sports radio spot Friday), and this week they play in the famously difficult Arrowhead Stadium road atmosphere.
Also, Aaron Brooks returns as the Raiders' starting quarterback this week, which should provide them a spark. And by "them" of course, I mean the Chiefs. The over-under on this game is 36, but that could just as well be the line, as far as I'm concerned.
Chiefs win big. Book it.
