The Weekend Desk Report

Showdown Sunday?
There's a lot to watch this weekend, including a few key match-ups. For readers who enjoy an odd wager, here are our key picks for Week T -5 before the mid-term elections

Pats vs. IMs
Pats -3
While the Pats traditionally have been the power-house contender in this division, the speed and sheer aggression of the Instant Message offense has already scored them one major upset. Take the IMs with the points.

Bucks vs. Everyone Else
Bucks -10
Despite bold statements by Dennis Hastert, it seems no one is truly willing to stop the Bucks. We predict the new commissioner will have little to say on the matter. If you're looking for a rock-solid pick this week, take the Bucks and give the points.

Georgia vs. Russia
Russia -4
Georgia is starting to look like an offensive juggernaut waiting to happen. Meanwhile, Russia seems committed to their prevent-style defense. Forget the points; take Georgia for the outright win.

Us vs. Them
Us -160,000
If only we had that many points to give. But it seems like the latest off-field troubles are going to have an impact on our already high-risk game plan. Still, with the spread this high, we should be able to cover.

PRK vs. UN
Yeah, there's really no winner here. Even if the typical posturing holds off the inevitable onslaught, no one has mastered the North's sneaky trick plays yet.

Bears vs. Buffalo
Bears -10
Who cares? They're both pretty much screwed anyway.
