    If you live in Nevada, Oregon, Montana or Delaware, you're in luck. Otherwise, go to Canada or Europe, or those rogues in New Jersey and get your bet on for the NFL weekend! All games are Sunday unless otherwise noted.

    Tennessee at Houston (-8.5) — The Texans' offense was in high gear on Monday night against San Diego, and say what you want about Philip Rivers, but the Titans don't have a Philip Rivers at quarterback. Look for the Texans to dominate the former Oilers in their home opener and for the Texans' defense to harrass the Titans all day long.

    St. Louis (+7.5) at Atlanta — The Falcons should win this game, but it'll be close. Roddy White is banged up, and the Rams' defense is very solid, especially in the secondary. Julio Jones will get his, but Sam Bradford will follow up a good debut with another good game and keep the Rams' offense within striking distance of the Falcons.

    New Orleans (-3.5) at Tampa Bay — The Bucs let one slide away with a boneheaded penalty in last week's opener against the sad and pathetic Jets. This week, they play host to Drew Brees & Co., and this one could get ugly in a hurry for the Bucs.

    San Francisco at Seattle (-3.5) — Along with Denver-New York, this is the game of the weekend between arguably the two best teams in the NFC who also happen to be division rivals and also happen to really dislike each other, all the way up to the head coaches. The Seahawks were unbeaten at home last year, including a rout of the 49ers, and this week should be a pretty convincing win for Seattle.

    Dallas (+2.5) at Kansas City — Call it fool's gold, but the Cowboys defense got it done last week against an offense that is much more lethal and dangerous than Kansas City's. With that said, the Chiefs are a legit team this year and should make the playoffs under Andy Reid and with Alex Smith at QB after winning just two games a year ago. But I'd take the Cowboys straight up here, so why not as an underdog?

    Last week: 3-2. 2013 season: 3-2.
