An era is over in Detroit. But as they say…SOL. Big week with playoffs on the line for fantasy managers. Expect injuries to start making an impact on the outcomes of games. Let’s win some money!
Lions @ Bears Line: CHI -3.0
You have to expect the Lions to come out fired up ready to prove Patricia was the problem. The want to win this game. The problem? They aren’t that good. “But Cort, it’s Trubisky!” Yeah, and unfortunately he’s had the Lions number of late. Would love to see the Lions make a statement…but I’m not betting on it.
Pick: CHI -3.0 Chicago 27 Lions 21
Eagles @ Packers Line: GB -8.5
Eagles are a joke. Rodgers is out for another MVP. Take the Pack and the over, whatever it is.
Pick: GB -8.5 Green Bay 30 Eagles 17
Saints @ Falcons Line: NO -3.0
The Taysom Hill thing has to come to an end soon right?? This could be the week. The Falcons are better than their record and played well against a playoff contender in the Raiders last week. An upset could be in the making.
Pick: ATL +3.0 Atlanta 24 New Orleans 20
Browns @ Titans Line: TEN -4.0
This is going to be an old school football game. Trenches. Run game. Defense. I expect the Browns to be able to hang in there with the return of Myles Garrett. They could keep the score low enough to win or at least beat the spread.
Pick: CLE +4.0 Cleveland 17 Tennessee 20
Bengals @ Dolphins Line: MIA -10
Dolphins defense is one of the best in the league. I’d take this spread even if Burrow was playing…and he’s not. Yikes.
Pick: MIA -10 Miami 21 Cincinnati 10
Jaguars @ Vikings Line: MIN -10.0
The Vikings get Theilen back this week. They’re going to put up points against a horrible Jaguars team.
Pick: MINN -10.0 Minnesota 28 Jacksonville 17
Raiders @ Jets Line: LV -7.5
Raiders still have a shot at the playoffs despite that poor performance last week. No better way to bounce back than facing the Jets.
Pick: LV -7.5 Las Vegas 28 New York 17
Colts @ Texans Line: IND -3.0
The Texans are missing some valuable pieces. It’s going to be hard to compete with the Colts and their D.
Pick: IND -3.0 Indianapolis 24 Houston 20
Rams @ Cardinals Line: LAR -3.0
Bounce back seems to be the theme this week. Goff is off a horrible game and is out to prove he’s the guy now. Still can’t figure out who the Cardinals are week to week. I like the Rams in this one.
Pick: LAR -3.0 Los Angeles 27 Arizona 21
Giants @ Seahawks Line: SEA -10.0
Daniel Jones is out, Colt McCoy is in. Yes, that Colt McCoy. Somehow still in the league. Bet on the Seahawks.
Pick: SEA -10.0 Seattle 31 New York 13
Patriots @ Chargers Line: LAC -2.0
This one is a toss up. Both teams have potential to put up points or lay a dud. I want to see Herbert step up here and get a big win for his team. But can the Chargers finish a game?
Pick: LAC -2.0 Los Angeles 26 Patriots 20
Broncos @ Chiefs Line: KC -13.5
It’s a big spread but this is the best offense we’ve possibly ever seen. How do you bet against that?
Pick: KC -13.5 Kansas City 35 Broncos 20
Football Team @ Steelers Line: PITT -7.0
Tomlin rightfully called his team out. Yeah, they’re undefeated…but they don’t look great. They need to step it up and will against a team in the NFC East.
Pick: PITT -7.0 Pittsburgh 27 Washington 16
Bills @ 49ers Line: SF -1.0
Very excited to watch this game. Two teams who matchup nicely. Give me the better quarterback in this one.
Pick: BUFF +1 Buffalo 24 San Francisco 23
Cowboys @ Ravens Line: BAL -8.5
Jackson comes back but still so many question marks with this Baltimore team. However I expect them to still win against the Cowboys. Don’t love the spread but what have I been saying about betting on the NFC East?
Pick: BAL -8.5 Baltimore 23 Dallas 13
