The Showpot is in need of a winning weekend.  It appears that the show’s first play is already decided with three different members proposing wagering on the Ravens versus Cleveland.  As for the other bet they place, you can help decide and perhaps help send them to Vegas for the NFL’s Championship Weekend.

Matt Spiegel (2-0 on the year):
Ravens -7 vs. Browns
The Ravens were embarrassed in the second half last week in Denver and want to bounce back in a big way.  A weak division foe at home is exactly what the doctor ordered for them, blowout victory here.
Over 47.5 in Lions at Cardinals
The Lions offense has showed that it can score points last week against Minnesota and don’t discredit what having an alright quarterback in Carson Palmer can do for Arizona.  I don’t know who wins here but I know they score a lot.  Over.

Nick Shepkowski (1-0-1):
Ravens -7 vs. Browns
Brandon Weeden is useless and the Ravens are a helluva lot better than they showed against the Broncos.  Baltimore gets off to a quick start and goes on to a blowout victory over Cleveland.
Bears -6 vs. Vikings
The only thing the Bears have to do is stop Adrian Peterson.  I expect the Bears to score and score often against the Vikings, making Christian Ponder have to throw a bunch as the game goes on.  That’s a good thing, Bears fans.  Bears roll at home.

Ben Finfer (1-1):
Colts -3 vs. Dolphins
Andrew Luck and company struggled early in week one and that won’t happen again.  The Dolphins having to go on the road a second week in a row hampers their team, one that really wasn’t that impressive when you consider it was just the Browns that they beat last week.  I love Indy!
Washington +8 at Green Bay
The Packers offense will score but not enough to cover.  RGIII and company figured enough out in the second half on Monday that I have confidence they’ll keep this a game on Sunday.

Jay Zawaski (0-2):
49ers +3 at Seahawks
The 49ers are quite possibly the best team in the whole NFL.  Yes, it’s tough to get a win in Seattle but anytime this 49ers squad is getting points I’m going to take them.
Bears -6 vs. Vikings
The Bears get to feast on an overhyped Vikings team.  Sure, AP might go off for 150 yards but it won’t be enough to keep this game within a touchdown on the lakefront!

Dan McNeil (0-2):
Ravens -7 vs. Browns
Give John Harbaugh extra time to prepare and he makes you pay.  Couple that with the Browns still being the Browns and the purple and black win this one going away.
Colts -3 vs. Dolphins
Another home favorite but I love the Colts to bounce back from a poor week one showing.  Better protection for Andrew Luck is shown and the Colts find a victory by more than a touchdown.

Which of these matchups do you like the most?
