NFL Football Picks
The public is all over the Saints after they handed the Cowboys their first loss on the season last week in New Orleans. This week they’ll take on a Bucs team that shocked the Rams last week exploding for 55 points! Can Tampa Bay get the best of New Orleans? Get NFL handicapper Bob’s interesting take on the game and his pick against the spread.
The Bengals already without WR A.J. Green have lost their No. 2 WR promising John Ross for the season. That makes it the Tyler show with WR Tyler Boyd (27 catches) and TE Tyler Eifert (11) as the key options in the passing game. Additionally this team’s run defense is very questionable making a big day for the Cards backfield likely.
The Falcons have won just one of their four games at that came at home knocking off the Eagles by four points. They hit the road to take on the Texans in Week 5 action. Get our capper’s point spread pick.
When most bettors think about the 0-4 Denver Broncos they think “garbage”. Truth be told, they appear to be coming to life and are a live underdog Sunday afternoon vs. the Chargers. Furthermore, LAC always seems to play down to their competition. Despite beating the Dolphins by 20 last week, they really didn’t play all that well. Nice underdog value here!
The Browns looked good against the Ravens in Week 4 with a well deserved 40-25 victory. They’ll head across the country this week to play the surprising 49ers who have yet to taste defeat. San Francisco holds most of the statistical edges in this match-up which gives us the opinion that the linesmaker is putting too much weight on Cleveland’s win last week.
The Colts losing to the Raiders at home last week will surely be in the minds of bettors as they travel to KC to take on the Chiefs. Arrowhead is a tough venue to conquer. These variables will surely be in the mind of NFL bettors Sunday in this game that features a huge point spread of 12.
The Bills have proven that they can play defense and should give the Titans all they can handle in Week 5. Buffalo’s wildcard has been the offense that has been doing their Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde impression in the early season. That makes this game tough to play from this viewpoint and doubly tough when you factor in the availability of QB Josh Allen (concussion) and impressive rookie RB Devin Singletary (hamstring). If neither go Tennessee may be a steal at -3.
Did the Steelers defense turn the corner with their impressive play against the Bengals on Monday night? Or, did they steal a page from the Bills to disrupt the Cincinnati passing game? They’ll have to be at their best to hold off the Ravens offense that has scored 23 plus points per game. Read on to get Keith Allen’s predicted point spread winner.
The Jets come into this game rested and have a chance to have starting QB Sam Darnold return to his duties behind center. The Eagles looked OK in their 34-27 win over a battered Packers defence last Thursday. The line for this game is just shy of two touchdowns with Philly bettors being asked to -13.5. NFL prognosticator Keith Franks breaks it down and gives out his point spread play.
The New England Patriots come to FedEx Field for a Sunday matchup with the Washington Redskins in week five NFL action. The Patriots are sitting pretty at 4-0, following a struggle in Buffalo where they ground out a 16-10 win, failing to cover the spread for the second straight game. Do they get back on the winning side of the line this week?
Helter Skelter takes effect Sunday as crazy variables galore are in play here including the Raiders winning at Indy last week, Chase Daniel in for the injured Mitchell Trubisky and the game being played in London. Grab a crumpet and consider wagering on the under as games across the pond are generally lower scoring in nature.
A couple of road Week 4 NFL road winners meet up in Carolina for what should be a close game. Something to consider is despite the Panthers grabbing wins with Kyle Allen, he’s still inexperienced and the Jags have given indication that they still have a good defense. The same could be said for Jags QB Gardner Minshew, but he sure has looked polished for a young player. Either way, it’s a lunch money bet at most in this one.
The good Vikings got beaten up by the Bears last week and the bad Giants crushed the Redskins. In a game where the point spread would have been made at around -9.5 a couple weeks ago, it’s instead -4.5 for the Vikings Week 5 at MetLife Stadium where the benching of Eli Manning and emergence of “Danny Dimes” has given new life to a team that hasn’t seen respect in many moons.
Confidence in the Rams has seemingly plummeted after they lost by fifteen points as a nine point home favorite to Tampa Bay Sunday. The opening line for this TNF matchup opened with the Rams as -2 favorites and within 24 hours has moved four points to Seattle -2.
Two 0-3 teams meet up in a less-than-thrilling Monday Night Football matchup at Heinz Field. Both teams have sustained key injuries (Bengals – A.J. Green + half their OL, Steelers – Ben Roethlisberger) and it shows! Making a strong pick on this game is as questionable as a coin flip.
Both defenses have shone in the early going. The Vikings have allowed 47 points in its three games this season while the Bears have given up just 39 making the “Under the total line” appetizing. The public has a mixed take on the total. Will Jay bite on the under?
