49ers (-6.5) vs. Eagles
Is it too late to hop on the 49ers bandwagon? Possibly, but I think this is a terrible matchup for the Eagles. Carson Wentz has been awful, and I don’t see how that changes against San Francisco, who still has a fantastic defense despite all the injuries they have suffered.
Colts (-2.5) at Bears
The Bears may be 3-0, but they are one of the most fraudulent 3-0 teams I’ve ever seen. This will be an unbelievably tough matchup for their offense, as the Colts quietly have one of the best defensive units in the league. Chicago finally gets exposed this week by Indianapolis.
Jacksonville (+3) at Bengals
This is an ugly game, but it could be a good opportunity to make some money. Joe Burrow has been fun to watch, but the Bengals still have an awful defense and offensive line. For those reasons, they probably shouldn’t be favored against anyone, and the Jags have shown they will play hard each week. Take Jacksonville and the points.

The Titans screwed me out of a 6-0 week for NFL and College, and if they had squeaked out one more point — last week would have been flawless.
Packers (o31.5 Points) vs. Falcons
Seahawks (-3.5, First Half) vs. Dolphins
This is a misprint, right?
Falcons vs. Packers (o56 Points)
I was tempted by a few games here. I learned my lesson betting on Philip Rivers; Chase may learn that the hard way this weekend. The Saints screwed me on MNF vs. Oakland, but they’ve covered in the last 17 games they’ve played in October. Finally, I settled on this. I hate betting on the Falcons, but both of these teams routinely post 35+.
