Below are the PFW consensus selections for this week, based on the editors' picks made one week in advance of the games. We also show three best bets — a fourth best bet, an over/under pick, is available each week with a subscription to PFW Online or the Handicapping Inner Circle.

If you would like to see the individual selections of all nine PFW editors — for every game — and the best bets of each editor, too, you can do it as early as Monday evening each week with a subscription to PFW Online ($54.95 for a full year). On Thursdays, we'll present the editors' late-week picks, and you can get those as part of a subscription to the Handicapping Inner Circle ($89.95 for the 2010 season).

Don't miss another week's winners. To find out more about the Handicapping Inner Circle, click here, or for more info on PFW Online, click here. Or you can sign up now.
