Well you see the title...

EXPERTS PICKS...LMFAO..

But did you also take into consideration, their picking against the spread also...

Vikes are getting 7 points..

That may be why so many picked the Vikes, the Vikes will keep it close, if not win it...

I say we win it outright........

Just Win Baby.....

They also picked the Saints over Miami with a 2 point spread.

Oh ya I mean i dont think we wont win, but logically usualy these "experts" pick with the trend and the line.

Yeah, you can't take their word for it though, when I clicked on it it shows that two of them picked Baltimore to win the New England vs. Buffalo game! :lol:

I hate CBS with a passion. They are all stupid. Notice half of them picked Green Bay over the Bengals...

Hey, they are picking with the spread, and I think most would take the Vikes + 7.5. By the way, do not harp on their records too much. I bet if we had a pool with the spread like EastCoastVikes does straight up, only four or five people would go above 52 percent, picking against the spread is EXTREMELY hard to do consistently, that is how Vegas makes money.

Green Bay is getting 9 points AT HOME, you have to take them ... although it is still tough call, the Bengals could easily win by a touchdown, and then all those who picked Green Bay are right.

We are fine we will WIN the game. Carolina is not as solid as they use to be. Delhome likes to through a lot of INT's. Our 'D' will feast on Panther meat Sunday. SKOL

Picks are based not on which team actually wins the game, but covers the spread.

Does not seem like too many people seem to understand this.

we're probably doomed unless we pressure Delhomme all day. Lord knows its gonna be Peppers on Culpepper all day.
We do owe the Panthers and John Fox REVENGE for trying to run up the score on us in 02.

If our D can play tough and Pep comes out where he left off last Sunday, We Can Take this Game..

if we find some way to slow down Smith and Davis, we should be fine. unless pep throws for a bunch of INTs i think we'll win this game.

Exactly, you can get the Vikings currently at +8, total 44 1/2 out here in Vegas...... Earlier in the week +8 1/2 & 45.......I bet sports just about every day out here. It's pretty cool.....

I’m surprised the Packers game is a 50/50 split, not sure they could cover a 12 point spread against the Bengal aerial assault.

Hurricane Wilma was last week’s disaster, Sunday’s is the burning of the Packer secondary.

It's quite simple really......Carolina is favored to beat us by 8 points, meaning: If you bet on the Vikings you are getting +8 to start the game. If Carolina wins by a score of 29-20 you lose because they won by more than 8 points......44 1/2 is the total combined score at the end of the game including overtime.... In this case 29-20 is over 44 1/2 because the total score added up to be 49.......If the Vikings lose 23-20 you win your bet because you were getting 8 points to start the game, also the game went under at 23-20 because it adds up to 43.....
