Pianow and Del Don won last week at 10-6, giving Pianow a whopping eight-game lead with only four weeks to play. The rest of us are bunched in around .500. Both Pianowski and Del Don like the Broncos are their best bets this week. The Titans, Raiders and Seahawks are consensus picks.

Enjoy the games.

Consensus Picks

This week we have three consensus picks: the Titans, Raiders and Seahawks. We went 3-4 on consensus picks in Week 13 to go 23-20-1 on the season. We went 32-21-1 on consensus picks in 2010.


EricksonI like a team with a good defense getting a big number... Panthers win outright.
PianowskiTim Tebow on the Sabbath is an unfair advantage to Denver.
LissThe one week I fade Tebow, two other writers make the Broncos their best bets.
StopaWhen I first saw these lines on Monday, two things jumped out at me - the Chargers at -6 and OVER 47 points. Both lines have moved a little against me since the opening, but I'm not sure Joe Public fully understands the extent to which the Bills and Chargers have no pass rush whatsoever. With the Chargers' weapons on offense all healthy, I can't see how the Bills hold them under 30 points. 35-21, Chargers. (Yes, I realize the Chargers are a tease, but this is the type of game they tease us on - they blew out the Jags and they'll crush the Bills, just enough to get hopes up before sticking the dagger in our hearts again.)... The home/road splits for Drew Brees and the Saints are very pronounced... The Colts aren't as bad with Orlovsky. I'm not sure home-field matters for Giants/Cowboys, but the three points might... The Tebows are better as a dog. It's time to sell high and buy the Bears low. ... The Dolphins are the fifth-best team in the AFC right now (Pats, Steelers, Ravens, Texans).
Del DonNo "best bet" jumped out at me this week, so when in doubt, go with Tim Tebow.
