Are you picking against the spread or straight up?

You could check out the voting in the Yahoo! pick 'em league to get an idea of what 50,000 other gamblers believe about each game.

I'm assuming it's straight up.

Yeah either way I wouldn't know any better... I have edited my OP reflecting my choices based on other 'experts' for this stuff.

Just wanted to say, this thread warms my heart. :D Gleek getting into football? The apocalypse must be near! :o

I CANNOT believe the way the Cowboys screwed things up and lost last night. It was like a clinic in what not to do. :evil:
The unexpected snap at the end - was that Romo's fault?
