If you are here for advice on picking games, I will advise you to look elsewhere, as I sit at a robust 11-22 now on the season, meaning I am guaranteeing you lose a lot of money every week.
Even so, we are here for another week of pick em’s, so let’s get rolling.
(All Lines from Bovada as of 9/23/16)
Baltimore Ravens (-1) at Jacksonville Jaguars
I think the Jags can still be good, just not with the coaching staff as is.
Washington Redskins at New York Giants (-4)
Give me the Giants, who look like a good football team this year on the defensive side of the ball. They have an offense that can play ball control or can score, they’ll beat a Washington team trying to find their way still.
Arizona Cardinals (-4.5) at Buffalo Bills
The Arizona Cardinals have shown the good and bad that they can play, I think we see the good and it is enough to win this game.
Denver Broncos (+3) at Cincinnati Bengals
It is not that I do not believe in the Bengals, it is that I am completely bought into the fact that the Broncos defense is the most unstoppable force in the NFL right now.
Cleveland Browns at Miami Dolphins (-10)
This is one of those “just don’t bet games” because has Miami shown to be worthy of being 10 point home favorites? No, the Browns played okay against the Ravens last week, but now it is Cody Kessler at QB. Just stay away.
Oakland Raiders (+1) at Tennessee Titans
Again, don’t bet this game. The Raiders beat the Saints, lose at home to Atlanta. Titans lose at home to the Vikings with Shaun Hill, beat the Lions in Detroit. Football is stupid.
Minnesota Vikings at Carolina Panthers (-7)
I really like the Vikings and think they are more than good enough to not only cover but win, but the Panthers have been really good at home.
Detroit Lions (+7.5) at Green Bay Packers
This will be the week the Packers wake up, but they just haven’t seemed right thus far.
San Francisco 49ers (+9) at Seattle Seahawks
Seattle is the better team, but a nine point margin of victory to a team who has scored one touchdown the entire season? I don’t know.
Los Angeles Rams at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-6)
The Rams team hasn’t scored a touchdown in a while and Tampa got the wake up call that they needed last Sunday.
Pittsburgh Steelers (-3.5) at Philadelphia Eagles
The Steelers could be special this year and as much as I like Carson Wentz, the Steelers will give him his biggest test to date.
San Diego Chargers at Indianapolis Colts (-3)
The Colts offense is good, the Chargers offense is good, this should be a shootout, which means it’ll be a 10-7 game.
New York Jets (+3) at Kansas City Chiefs
The Jets are the team I am struggling to figure out, almost as much as I am struggling to figure out the Chiefs.
Chicago Bears at Dallas Cowboys (-7)
What a Sunday Night Football match up.
Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints (-3)
I like the Falcons right now, but the Saints coming in 0-2 makes things a little more difficult.
