Keller's Max Muncy Goes From Out of Work to Key Contributor on National League's Best Team

Road Chalk and Alaskan Pipelines is Will Brinson's weekly NFL gambling column at FanHouse. Because everyone loves a loser.

Nothing like a week of mediocrity (8-6) mixed in with a season of, um, worse than mediocrity. And, such a stellar record brings our season total to 39-47-1. Simply. Stunning.

Stunning enough, in fact, that this particular column has been referred to as "Brinson's Bad Picks" (which, in hindsight, is a much cooler name than anything else I've been able to offer).

Tennessee Titans (-9) @ Kansas City Chiefs
The Titans are the "best" team in the NFL. The Chiefs are one of the worst. Larry Johnson is out. This should be easy.

Titans -9

San Diego Chargers (-1) @ Buffalo Bills
Wow. I'm torn. On one hand, I have tremendous team crush on the Bills. On the other, Philip Rivers is your early season MVP. So, yeah. However, the Chargers are just better and they are favored on the road, so I see no reason to mess with what's worked so well thus far into 2008.

Chargers -1

Pittsburgh Steelers (-10) @ Cincinnati Bengals
It's unconventional and stupid to take a team favored by 10 on the road. But not as unconventional and stupid as taking the Bengals.

Steelers -10

Baltimore Ravens @ Miami Dolphins (-3)
I'm fairly certain that the last time Miami was favored in any game was roughly 2001. Yes, that may be an approximation. But it doesn't change the fact that it's a difficult situation to bet on. Then I realize the Wildcat offense exists.

Miami -3

Dallas Cowboys (-7) @ St. Louis Rams
