It’s a really difficult week to find games to bet on in the NFL. There’s always a handful of those weeks throughout the season. No harm is scaling back if you bet individual games but still need to find sides for a picking in a contest. Here are my picks:
Bengals +5 vs Falcons – Like the Bengals a lot at +5 but wouldn’t bet it at the current number of -3.5. The Falcons suffered another key injury on defense in an overtime loss last week.
Broncos +5 vs Chiefs – I’ve gone against the Chiefs all season, including heavy the last two weeks. I think this is the spot where the Broncos slow down Mahomes in Denver on primetime.
Lions +3 vs Cowboys – Ended up with the Lions because of the injury to Sean Lee. Don’t love the situation for Detroit off a huge win against New England but think their offense can have some success here.
Raiders -2.5 vs Browns – Going to look to bet the Raiders first half in this game. Oakland has had the lead at halftime in all three games but are 0-3.
Giants +3.5 vs Saints – The Saints have some real issues on defense right now that the Giants should be able to capitalize on at home.
49ers +10 vs Chargers – I could totally be wrong here but I can see a strong effort from San Francisco in the game following the season-ending injury to Jimmy Garoppolo.
Jets +7.5 vs Jaguars
Patriots -6.5 vs Dolphins
Ravens +3 vs Steelers
Titans +4 vs Eagles
Texans +1 vs Colts
Packers -9.5 vs Bills
Bears -3 vs Buccaneers
Cardinals +3 vs Seahawks
