Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire
The early games on Sunday have many closer lines, but there will be two underdogs to cover.
After a Thursday night surprise in which the Tennessee Titans not only covered their six-point spread as underdogs, they won straight up at home. The trend we now notice is that you should take the home team in Thursday night games. What about the early Sunday games?
Here are our picks:
Indianapolis Colts at New York Jets (-3): Indy and Andrew Luck are flying high after an upset of the Green Bay Packers. In another upset pick (is it really an upset to beat the Jets?), expect Indy to build on the win from the previous week. Pick: Colts, +3.
Kansas City Chiefs at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-4): With Brady Quinn likely the starter due to Matt Cassel's head injury, they will be forced to run the ball more, which is exactly what Tampa defends well. Pick: Bucs, -4.
