…no comments necessary to start:
Jacksonville (-7.5) at Cleveland
The Jags have beaten up on bad teams this year for the most part. Cleveland is a bad team.
Jacksonville 27, Cleveland 13.
Tampa Bay at Miami (-2.5)
Tampa has certainly underachieved this year, but I am not sure how Miami can be favored against anyone.
Tampa Bay 23, Miami 17.
Arizona (-1.5) at Houston
Blaine Gabbert versus Tom Savage. Ugh…
Houston 17, Arizona 14.
Washington at New Orleans (-7.5)
Spread initially seemed a little high to me, but then again the ‘Skins gave up 38 to Case Keenum last week and now have to face the explosive Saints in their dome at home. Then the number made more sense.
New Orleans 42, Washington 24.
Kansas City (-10.5) at New York Giants
The G-Men got blasted by the previously winless 49ers last week. It’s over…
Kansas City 37, New York Giants 10.
Los Angeles Rams at Minnesota (-2.5)
The Rams are 7-2 and are putting up a ton of points. Great story. But the schedule hasn’t actually been loaded with quality opponents either. The Vikings are 7-2 as well…and are a quality opponent.
Minnesota 27, Los Angeles Rams 24.
Baltimore (-2.5) at Green Bay
A few years ago, this would have been a marquee matchup. Sunday? Not so much.
Baltimore 21, Green Bay 16.
Detroit (-2.5) at Chicago
Could be a better game than we think. Then again, could be a snoozer too.
Detroit 27, Chicago 20.
Buffalo at Los Angeles Chargers (-3.5)
Sean McDermott didn’t come to Buffalo to be 5-4. What?!! 5-4 is AWESOME for Buffalo these days! Tyrod Taylor is no Hall of Famer, but the switch to some dude named Nathan Peterman at this point in the season appears to be a head scratcher.
Los Angeles Chargers 20, Buffalo 10.
Cincinnati at Denver (-2.5)
I normally would have no problem picking Denver here as I would be convinced that they would turn it around and get back on track. But 5 losses in a row and 92 points given up the last two weeks are hard to ignore. They may be quitting on their coach on top of everything else. But then I notice the Broncos are playing the Bengals. Such a dilemma.
Denver 27, Cincinnati 21.
New England (-6.5) “at” Oakland
In Mexico City. The Pats may be hitting their stride. I don’t know what Oakland is doing.
New England 38, Oakland 24.
Philadelphia (-3.5) at Dallas
Dallas got pasted by the Falcons last week. The Eagles are absolutely rolling right now. This pick won’t make any sense to anyone. I’m still trying to figure it out. Total gut feeling.
Dallas 31, Philadelphia 27.
Atlanta at Seattle (-2.5)
Seattle has some injuries in their secondary. But despite the Falcons big win at home against Dallas last week, still not buying in.
Seattle 30, Atlanta 24.
Week (against the spread): 1-0
Week (straight up): 1-0
Season (against the spread): 72-75
Season (straight up): 94-53
