Upset Record: 3-9 -$815

Underdog Pick #1: Buffalo Bills (+120 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Philadelphia Eagles, Sunday, 1:00 ET: Get used to this trend this week… Here, we have a team that has overachieved at 3-1 (Buffalo) against a team that has brutally underachieved at 1-3 (Philadelphia). The Bills have already taken care of the Patriots this year at home, and though they were beaten last week by Cincinnati on the road, they still have to have their confidence. Meanwhile, that confidence is truly justified for the Eagles right now. The so called “Dream Team” doesn’t have an offensive line of any note, and its front seven on defense is truly pathetic, especially without the services of DE Trent Cole in the lineup. Sure, QB Michael Vick and the offense might have a good day, but without the ability to stop a sneakily strong Buffalo offense, the Eagles are as good as dead.

Underdog Pick #2: Tennessee Titans (+155 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Pittsburgh Steelers, Sunday 1:00 ET: Take the names off of the fronts of these uniforms, and there’s no way that the Titans would be underdogs in this game. LB James Harrison is out of the lineup, as is RB Rashard Mendenhall in all likelihood. The Pittsburgh offense line is a shambles and is perhaps even in worse shape than it was last year. QB Ben Roethlisberger is banged up and is going to have his mobility hampered because of his foot injury that he suffered from the beating that he took last week against the Texans. Tennessee again, is an overachieving 3-1 team going against an underachieving 2-2 Pittsburgh outfit. Rinse, wash, and repeat.

Underdog Pick #3: Denver Broncos (+170 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. San Diego Chargers, Sunday, 4:15 ET: This one differs from the mold just a bit, but the theory is the same. Denver isn’t exactly an “overachieving” team at just 1-3, and San Diego probably isn’t exactly an “underachieving” team at 3-1, but we just don’t buy what the Chargers are selling. QB Philip Rivers might not have all that many targets to work the ball to. We already know that TE Antonio Gates is going to likely be out of the fold, and WR Vincent Jackson hasn’t practiced all week. This Denver team was embarrassed last week against the Packers on the road, as QB Aaron Rodgers accounted for six total touchdowns. Look for the Broncos to bounce back and put up a stellar effort in an “upset” against an iffy division leader.
