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 2012 season).
