Last week (3-2) OVR (10-5)
- 1.) Packers ML (-220)
With all the turmoil that is going on with Washington right now I think this team is going to pack it in for the rest of the season. Especially in the NFC east division where there is no way out of this losing slump that they’re in. The Packers should easily win this game with an offense that I think is starting to find their identity with a connection of Rodgers and Doubs. This Packers defense should also put some pressure on Taylor Heinicke who is starting for the injured Carson Wentz. Even though I like Heinicke and I think he is a true playmaker, I don’t think he can be good enough to get through a Packers team that is trying not to have a losing record seven games into the season.
- 2.) Colts ML (+118)
Colts are getting back all three of their running backs this week as all of them had full participation in Thursday’s practice. Jonathan Taylor and co. are going against a Titans defense that is in the bottom 10 of the league in rushing defense so expect some big carries out of the backfield for them. It also seems as though Matt Ryan is playing somewhat better than in the first couple of games as he ranks 2nd now in the league in passing yards. Expect a close game here that is won in the trenches.
- 3.) Bengals -6.5 (-110)
The Bengals are at home versus the Atlanta Falcons this week and I this is going to be a big time game for Joe Burrow and Jamarr Chase. They just have to make sure this O-Line gets right and gives Burrow some time to throw because they are going against the worst passing defense in the league in yardage. Also allowing QB’s to have a completion rate of almost 70 percent. I’m expecting a blowout and maybe take some player props on Joey B.
- 4.) Ravens ML (-285)
A big AFC North game against the Browns this week. Lamar Jackson will most likely have a great game running the football as hes going against the a bottom 10 rushing defense this week. I think this game is going to be a lot like the Colts/Titans game as it will be won in the trenches. But I think we will see some big plays out of the Ravens who just signed deep threat Desean Jackson while the Browns give up 7.2 yards per pass attempt which ranks 27th in the league. So maybe put a bet down for longest pass for Lamar while your at it.
- 5.) Jets ML (+105)
Coming off a huge win against the Packers in Lambeau with the defense being the driving force in that game the Jets are for real, or at least their defense is. I have no confidence in the Denver Broncos this year and I don’t think anyone in that locker room does either. From Nathaniel Hackett questioning his time management skills to no one believing in Russel Wilson either. The big cornball that is Mr. Unlimited will once again be limited by his play on the field. I’m thinking another pick from Sauce Gardner and a win for the Jets.
