NFL SELECTIONS

Sunday. September 27, 2020

Washington Football Team @ Cleveland Browns (-7) Total 45 -Look neither one of these teams is consistent in what they do. There will be good weeks and bad for both Washington and Cleveland based on the opponent. I think this is actually a game where both teams can compete, but not sure the Browns are a touchdown better at home at this juncture. Late score cover maybe - taking the points.

Cincinnati Bengals @ Philadelphia Eagles (-5.5) Total 47 - Eagles have not looked as good as expected out of the gate, while the Bengals, despite a pair of losses, have actually been in their games until the end and appear to work hard for head coach Zac Taylor. I think this one will be a competitive contest with rookie QB Joe Burrow keeping Cincy in the game - grabbing the points.

Detroit Lions @ Arizona Cardinals (-5.5) Total 55.5 - Sometimes pictures are clear early on in the season, it may not hold true for the entire campaign, but visually, the Cardinals are playing well and the Lions, well not so much. Arizona has offensive weapons and uses them well, while Detroit just doesn't appear to be cohesive. Look, not asking the Cards to win by a bunch, easily take this by a touchdown - it's a give.



Sunday, September 20, 2020

Denver Broncos @ Pittsburgh Steelers (-6.5) Total 40.5 - Steelers come in here off a Monday Night victory, while the Broncos lost their opener on the same day versus the Titans. Look, Pittsburgh is not a flashy team, they are a lunch bucket club that outworks opponents and that is a testament to head coach Mike Tomlin, who always seems to have his teams ready to go. Denver really could have won the opener, but didn't and that is an important intangible, giving away games you should win, that needs to be factored in. Steelers can handle this for at home by a TD - laying the points.

Jacksonville Jaguars @ Tennessee Titans (-7.5) Total 44.5 - Both teams enter off of opening day victories, as the pair each overcame deficits. Titans will obviously try to pound the ball and it will be important for the Jacksonville defense to keep Derrick Henry somewhat in check. Meanwhile, the Jaguars need balance on offense to make it work and while not sure they can win this, I think it stays closer than expected - taking the touchdown-plus!

Kansas City Chiefs (-8) @ Los Angeles Chargers  Total 47.5 - The Chiefs and Chargers were on the winning end in Week 1, both taking it as favorites. This week, things get tougher for Los Angeles, which faces the defending SB Champs, albeit at home. Kansas City is just too powerful offensively for most opponents and that is what is the problem when facing them, can you keep up scoring or stop them. Unfortunately for the Chargers, don't think they have the offense or defense to do it! Just don't think the home team can keep it closer than 10 points and if that's the case - it's a give!



Sunday, September 13, 2020

Cleveland Browns @ Baltimore Ravens (-7.5) Total 47.5 - The Ravens look to continue the upward trend after a great regular season a year ago and this is a good spot to start that this time around. The Browns defense had some training camp injuries and that is not he way to go in against an explosive offense that Baltimore possesses and I think that will be the ultimate difference here - laying the touchdown plus the hook.

Miami Dolphins @ New England Patriots (-7) Total 41.5 - Patriots new starting QB Cam Newton is still a great player and a threat you have to give extra game-planning to try to limit. If he can stay healthy, which has been the big "if"  in his career, he will be among the toughest players with his skills and size for a defense to deal with! I expect NE to be able to move the ball. That being said, the Dolphins have added some good players and I think Head Coach Brian Flores, who has the makings of a good one, will have them ready to compete in this spot. Going to grab the touchdown as the Fins keep it close enough.

 Arizona Cardinals @ San Francisco 49ers (-7) Total 48 - Niners come off a Super Bowl appearance while the Cardinals continue to build something, and excited to see DeAndre Hopkins debut with Arizona. Still not sure the Cards have come far enough to win a road game against this type of opponent, but they can keep this closer than a touchdown - taking the points.

Houston Texans @ Kansas City Chiefs (-9.5) Total 54.5 - The season gets underway with the Super Bowl Champion Chiefs hosting the Texans. Who can forget the last time these teams hooked up, as the Texans raced to a 24-0 advantage, before the Chiefs outscored them 51-7, the rest of the way to win a Divisional Round Playoff game. Kansas City returns the best QB in the game right now in Patrick Mahomes and he has most of his weapons from the high-powered offense intact from a season ago. On the other side, Houston had to replace leading receiver DeAndre Hopkins and leading rusher Carlos Hyde, and will try to do this with Brandin Cooks, Randall Cobb and David Johnson.
Without a preseason, teams that have more of a nucleus back should do well and that should bode well for KC - it's a give as the home team wins by 10!
