At Green Bay -14 St Louis
St Louis can’t get out of their own way and Green Bay’s passing attack is top notch. There has not been a team yet this season that has stopped Aaron Rodgers, and his only “down” game this season was last Week in Atlanta when the Packers STILL covered the spread. St. Louis, as I’ve been saying all season, may be competing with the Dolphins as the worst team in the league. Sam Bradford will be spending a lot of time on his back and on the sidelines watching Aaron Rodgers put on a clinic at home at Lambeau. This might be my favorite game of the week and I’ll take the Packers to cover -14.
At Pittsburgh -12 Jacksonville
Jacksonville’s defense has flown slightly under the radar this season but they just aren’t capable of keeping up with Big Ben. It’s seems Mr. Handsy finally got his act together last week and threw for 5 TD’s in a big win. Blaine Gabbert looks like he could be a good QB in the future but a road game at Heinz Field with the Steelers blitz packages ruining his day will certainly not make him look good. I think Jacksonville will try to control the clock and pound the ball with MJD early, but I see the Steelers getting up by 14 at the half and not looking back. I like Pittsburgh to cover -12 at home against an inexperienced Jags squad.
At Detroit -4 San Francisco
If anyone tells you that they thought SF and Detroit would be a combined 9-1 going into this game, they would either be lying, or should be passing you whatever they’re smoking on. With Detroit’s stable of 1st round/ high round picks it’s not hard to see why they’re successful. But, SF is essentially getting the job done with retreads and a QB that was left for dead no less than two times since being taken #1 overall ahead of Mr. Aaron Rodgers. SF has taken big steps forward this year un Harbaugh and I see them winning their weak division this season, but I just think that Detroit is too good not to win at home by a least a TD. Stafford and Megatron have been on the same page all year and they show zero signs of being stopped. Although I think SF keeps it relatively close, I like Detroit to cover -4 points.
BE CAREFUL WITH
At New England -6.5 Dallas
To tell you the truth I actually think I would bet Dallas getting 6.5 points in this game but Tom Brady’s ability to lead this team to a win and to dominate games at home scares the hell out of me. Dallas offense is finally healthy coming off the bye week and New England’s last ranked defense can’t stop the pass at all, and in all honesty its flat out pathetic. I think Dallas is actually going to pull out the win in this game. I like the Cowboys with points but it’s in no way a safe bet. I wouldn’t put money on this game unless you’re feeling lucky because it could swing back and forth all day and end up going either way
RUN THE OTHER WAY
At Cincinnati -7 Indianapolis
Indy might be a disappointing team at 0-5 but since their switch to Curtis Painter they’ve been in every game and it’s been pretty close. Cincy has a good defense and can keep their inconsistent offense in games. I think Cincy has a chance to cover -7 and will probably do it. My biggest issue is with betting the game, not the actual game. You need to put your money on the safest games possible if you hope to win and with two unbelievably up and down teams like this, nothing is assured. I stay away from games like these every Sunday and you should too.
SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL
At Chicago -3 Minnesota
I’ve been down on Minnesota all season and I don’t care if they rode Adrian Peterson’s monster first half to a win last week. They suck, McNabb sucks and they are a horrible team to put your money on. Although Chicago hasn’t looked stellar so far this season they have the better team and its not up for debate. With the home team only getting -3 points it makes you take a second to consider the game because Vegas is giving Minnesota more than a punchers chance in this one but I don’t like the Vikings at all this season and I’ll take Chicago to cover -3 at home.
MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL
At New York Jets -7 Miami
These two teams are both playing very ugly, unwatchable football this season, with Miami playing only slightly worse than the super talented Jets. Miami is starting their backup QB Matt Moore this week and I think that even with the added time to prep with the bye week last week Miami still goes to the Jets and gets beat. This game is going to be an ugly ass game to watch though and very easily could end up 14-6 the way these two teams are playing. I don’t like this game to bet at all, but if you’re looking for my thoughts, I think the Jets bounce Miami and BARELY cover -7 points.
