Washington (+3.5) at Detroit

I think this is a game that goes down to the wire, and as a general rule, you take the team that is getting the hook in this type of game. I like the Football Team to cover in this one.

Tampa Bay (-6) at Carolina

People seem to be a little down on Tampa Bay after they were embarrassed at home last weekend by the Saints on national television, and because of that, this line seems a little low. The Bucs handled Carolina in their first matchup, and that was with Christian McCaffery. Take Tampa Bay.

Baltimore (-7) at New England

This could be a trap, but I still think the Patriots are getting the benefit of the doubt with their lines this season. They are not a good football team. I think Baltimore wins this by a couple of touchdowns.

Pittsburgh (-7.5) at Bengals

I feel like the Bengals are getting a lot of love for a two-win team, and I get it; Burrow is awesome. However, this is still one of the worst offensive and defensive lines in the league. The Steelers take advantage of that on Sunday and win BIG. 

Season Record (14-14)

Bengals (+7.5) at Steelers

I’m against Chase here. The Bengals have enough to keep this one close. Remember, the Steelers just had a tough time with the Cowboys and have also struggled with the Titans, who the Bengals crushed, and Broncos. 

Raiders (-3.5) vs. Broncos

I hate the hook here, but I’m still laying the points. The Raiders have too much talent not to win this one by a touchdown. 

Vikings (-3) at Bears

These are two teams heading in opposite directions, which is why the Vikings are laying the points on the road despite having two fewer wins. They win by at least a touchdown.

Bucs (-5.5) at Panthers

During his short tenure with the Bucs, Tom Brady is 2-0 against the spread coming off a loss. Is that a small sample size? Maybe so. But if I have learned anything about this election cycle, it’s that we take the empirical data and tell whatever story we want with it. One of those two games was a 31-17 win over the Panthers in Week 2 after losing to the Saints the week before. Does history repeat itself this week? I think so. I think Tampa Bay’s speed at the linebacker position slows down Carolina’s run attack and forces Teddy-Two-Gloves to throw the ball. Give me the Bucs by at least a touchdown.

Raiders (-3.5) vs. Broncos

Am I taking the Raiders three games in a row? You’re damn right, I am. I am sure Drew Lock will throw three garbage time touchdowns, but it won’t be enough to cover the 3.5. Lay the points with the Raiders.

Rams (-2.5) at Seahawks

Let Goff cook. Yes, you heard that right. The Seahawks can’t defend the pass to save their lives, and I expect Sean Mcvay to have a field day on Sunday. Plus, I have a Seahawks NFC West future, so this will be a nice little hedge.


Oh Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy, IT’S BACK! THE 5-WAY TEASER IS BACK!!!

If you rode with me last time, then you’re just as excited as I am. This just can’t lose, I am telling ya. Are you ready? Okay, here we go:

Texans v. Browns ov. 39.5

Jags v. Packers ov. 42.5

Bills v. Cardinals ov. 50

Saints -3

Steelers -1

Pays out +375; you’re welcome.

Season Record (4-2) — 5-Way Teaser Record (1-0)
