NFL SELECTIONS

Sunday. October 25, 2020

Green Bay Packers (-3.5) @ Philadelphia Eagles TOTAL 57 -Packers suffered the first loss last week and look to rebound versus the 1-5 Texans. I think GB gets back omn track and wins this through the air - laying the points.

Buffalo Bills (-10) @ New York Jets TOTAL 46 - Bills have found just the right opponent to stop a two-game slide in the winless Jets (0-6 ATS as well). New York is just a bad team with bad coaching, nothing to push with them, except maybe the return of Sam Darnold? Won't be enough, Buffalo wins going away - it's a give.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-4.5) @ Las Vegas Raiders  TOTAL 52 - Bucs won a good one last week and it was the defense that set the tone. Even though this is on the road, I think the Tampa Bay defense will do it again, especially against the Raiders offensive line. The Bucs offense should do enough to win by close to a touchdown - laying the number.


Sunday. October 18, 2020


Baltimore Ravens (-10) @ Philadelphia Eagles TOTAL 46.5 -The Ravens only setback through five games has been to the Chiefs, while the four victories have been by 14 points or more. The Eagles are merely an average team at best and with the home field diminished this season to a degree without a crowd, what little edge they may have had is gone. Look for Lamar Jackson to exploit the weakness in the back of the Philly defense - laying the points.

Denver Broncos @ New England Patriots (-7.5) TOTAL  44 - Broncos got the first win of the season in their last game, but it was against possibly the worst team in the league in the Jets, so not sure what that was worth and on top of that, they had the next week off in a Covid-19 situation (this game was supposed to be played last Sunday). New England probably benefitted from the week off as QB Cam Newton is returning from Coronavirus absence, so look for them to really come out fast. Pats are usually good with an extra week and this should hold true here - it's a give.

New York Jets @ Miami Dolphins (-10) TOTAL 47 - How bad are the Jets you ask, well for the first time since Dec. 2018, the Dolphins are a favorite! It makes sense as New York has lost by nine points or more in the first five games and double digits in four of those setbacks! Miami on the pother hand has actually been able to put up points this campaign, dropping 23 or more in their last four outings, going 2-2 during that span. If the Jets actually do wake up, so be it, but it is hard to see that type of form reversal with this roster - laying the points.


Sunday. October 11, 2020

Arizona Cardinals (-7) @ New York Jets TOTAL 48.5 -The Cardinals look to snap a two-game losing streak and the lowly Jets are the perfect opponent for that. New York starts Joe Flacco this week for injured Sam Darnold, so there is still some experience in that position, but they just don't have the other pieces to help. Cardinals can score and looking for a big day from Kyler Murray to put points on the board - laying the points.

Philadelphia Eagles @ Pittsburgh Steelers (-7.5) TOTAL 45 - Steelers come off a Covid-19 bye with a 3-0 record and have played well on both sides of the ball. The Eagles got their first win of the season last week at a banged-up San Francisco, but it is something to build on. In the battle of Pennsylvania, Steelers win, but Eagles keep it close - gabbing the touchdown-plus the hook!

Minnesota Vikings @ Seattle Seahawks (-7) TOTAL 55 - The Seahawks have really come out of the gate with a high-scoring offense led by QB Russell Wilson and they will need points against a Vikings team that has put up 30 or more points in 3-of-4 games this season, despite a 1-2 mark. Wilson will need to really put pressure on the Minnesota secondary and I think he can - it's a give. 






Sunday. October 4, 2020

Seattle Seahawks (-5.5) @ Miami Dolphins TOTAL 55.5 -The Seahawks have come out of the gate showing that this offense can score, win games and cover, at home and on the road. The Dolphins are competitive and will try to stay in it, but just think they are a peg below. Seattle has done well in this situation coming east in the past and should handle it - giving the points.

Baltimore Ravens (-14.5) @ Washington Football Team TOTAL 45 - Baltimore off a loss against an inferior opponent, traveling right down the road in this "away" contest. I usually am not a big fan of road team giving double digits, but the Ravens are explosive in theses situations - it's a give.

Los Angeles Chargers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-7) TOTAL 42 - The Bucs are off to a 2-1 start in the "Tom Brady-era" and that's good enough right now. As long as they stay healthy, I look for the offense to start to gel in the next few weeks. Remember, this is an new group, great talent, but new together and it takes time, especially under this season's situation. Additionally, the defense can get to the passer and there is a young inexperienced quarterback to go after! Tampa Bay handles this task - laying the  touchdown.



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.



Thursday, September 10, 2020

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!
