    <p>Here we go... Week 1 picks. Each week I'll pick the line & over/under on all games. Further, starting week 3, I'll make my picks as if I was a betting man this season. I'll use the same method other bettors in the forums discuss it... bet in units. Each unit is different for each person... it represents what the value is of the lowest denomination wager each person would lay. </p>
    <p>Why start week 3 and not now? Because I'd like to see what each team is made of first. There are a few rules in betting on the NFL: never bet on the preseason, never bet the first two weeks of the season, never bet against Brett Farve, never bet on Oakland (they will ALWAYS screw you), and the newest addition to my set of rules that was added last season: never bet on Mike Tice.</p>
