Upset Record: 5-11, -$750

Underdog Pick #1: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+110 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Chicago Bears, Sunday, 1:00 ET: We just don’t see what the oddsmakers see in this game. The Bucs are the better team here in our estimation. We trust QB Josh Freeman to take care of business in close games, just as Tampa Bay has done all season long. Its only defeats have been relatively predictable ones, especially that duel on the West Coast against the San Francisco 49ers. Someone please tell us who Chicago has beaten this year. Atlanta at home? Wee. Minnesota at home? Who cares? Carolina at home? Everyone except for Jacksonville has beaten Carolina. The bottom line is that the Bears have played three playoff teams this year, and they’ve been beaten by the three playoff teams by double digits each. We don’t know if the Bucs will be win 10+ or not, but we do think that they are winning this game.

Underdog Pick #2: Atlanta Falcons (+160 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Detroit Lions, Sunday 1:00 ET: If you believe that the Falcons are going to be postseason contenders at some point this year, this is a game that they might be able to steal a victory in. The team is already 0-2 against NFC North opponents this year, getting rocked by both the Bears and the Packers, but this is a different challenge. The book on how to beat the Lions was set last week by the Niners, and we have some fears that this rushing attack for Detroit is subpar at best right now. RB Jahvid Best might really be the only remotely viable option that the team has, and he suffered a concussion in last week’s loss. Sure, the way that you beat the Falcons is via the aerial assault, but when that’s the only attack you’ve got, you might be in some trouble. Don’t be surprised if QB Matt Stafford takes some extra hits and gets his injury concerns tested again in this one.

Underdog Pick #3: Kansas City Chiefs (+170 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Oakland Raiders, Sunday, 4:05 ET: This is just a butt ugly game in every regard. The Chiefs are coming off of their bye week, and they haven’t won a game against the Raiders in quite some time. Oakland knows that it has no choice but to use QB Kyle Boller in this one, as QB Carson Palmer just doesn’t seem like he is going to be ready after just three days of practice to take snaps as the team’s starting quarterback. Remember that Kansas City played a lot better ball in its three most recent games after getting smashed in Weeks 1 and 2. An upset could be in the cards in this one.
