As you can see from the overall winners who pick weekly games there is a lot of money to be made this season. You either are making money or losing it by not working with the best handicappers out there.
While there are not many division games this week there are a couple of big ones with the Chargers heading to the Mile High City to face the Broncos, the Bengals hosting the Ravens, and the Cowboys hosting the Redskins on Monday night. The Seahawks are coming off a loss and are 3-3 and they hit the road to play the Panthers, who were embarrassed in their last game. The Saints are one of the biggest disappointments so far at 2-4 and they have a tough game hosting the hot Green Bay Packers.
San Diego Chargers (5-2) vs. Denver Broncos (5-1)
Odds: Broncos -7.5 O/U 50.5
The Broncos are coming off an impressive blowout win over the San Francisco 49ers where Peyton Manning broke Brett Favre’s TD record. He Chargers had their 5-game winning streak snapped in their last game and the red-hot Phillip Rivers was cooled down. He will be facing Von Miller, who leads the league in sacks, and a Denver pass rush that had 6 sacks in their big win over the 49ers.
The Chargers are 7-0-4 ATS in their last 11 games against the Broncos in Denver.
Pick Against the Spread: Even with the trend above the Broncos will win at home and cover the 7.5-point spread.
Seattle Seahawks (3-3) vs. Carolina Panthers (3-3-1)
Odds: Seahawks -4.5 O/U 44.5
The Seahawks were shocked in their last game losing to the under.500 Rams, but they are the road betting favorite this Sunday. The Panthers played well in their tie against the Bengals a couple of weeks back, but last week they were crushed losing to the Green Bay Packers 38-17. The Panthers were down 38-3 to the Packers before scoring 2 late TD’s. Carolina has struggled to run the ball all season and they do not rank in the top 21 in the league in pass or run defense.
Pick Against the Spread: The Seahawks will not lose 3 in a row and they will get back to their game of solid defense and running the ball and will cover at Carolina.
Baltimore Ravens (5-2) vs. Cincinnati Bengals (3-2-1)
Odds: Bengals -1.5 O/U 46
The Ravens have won 5 of their last 6 games, including 2 in a row, and they are in first place in the AFC North. They are the slight road betting underdog in this game where they look to avenge a home loss to the Bengals in their season opener. Baltimore is playing well, but they only have 1 win this season facing a team that is over .500 in the 4-3 Steelers. However, they will be facing a Bengals’ team that has lost 2 of their last 3 games and ranks 27th in pass defense and 30th in run defense.
The home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 games between these 2 teams.
Pick Against the Spread: Have to go with the Ravens in this one even on the road.
Philadelphia Eagles (5-1) vs. Arizona Cardinals (5-1)
Odds: Cardinals -2.5 O/U 48
The Eagles had a great 27-0 win over the Giants in their last game and they are also coming off a bye. The Cardinals have 5 wins, but their pass D ranks 2nd to last in the league, which is a concern facing a Philly team that has the 7th ranked passing offense. The Cardinals do not have a dynamic offense, but they will be up against an Eagles’ squad that ranks 23rd in both pass and run defense.
The Cardinals are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games against the Eagles.
Pick Against the Spread: while the Eagles have not covered the spread in their last 4 games against the Cardinals they are rested and coming off a big win and they will at least cover the spread in the desert this Sunday.
Indianapolis Colts (5-2) vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (4-3)
Odds: Colts -2.5
The Steelers are coming off a solid Monday night win over the Texans, but they have not beaten one team this season that currently has a winning record. The Colts have won 5 straight, rank in the top 10 in both pass and run defense, and QB Andrew Luck leads the league’s top-ranked passing offense.
The Colts are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games.
Pick Against the Spread: Even on the road the Colts will easily win and cover.
Green Bay Packers (5-2) vs. New Orleans Saints (2-4)
Odds: Saints -2 O/U 55
The Saints are sitting at 2 games under .500 and they are coming off a loss, but they are 2-0 at home with all 4 losses coming on the road. The Packers have won 34 straight and in that span their offense has averaged 36 ppg. This may be the Aaron Rodgers vs. Drew Brees show, but Brees will face a legit Green Bay pass D that ranks 6th in the league while New Orleans only ranks 28th in that category.
The favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 games between these 2 teams.
Pick Against the Spread: The Saints are 2-0 at home, but they came against the Buccaneers and Vikings and facing a much better Green Bay team they will not win.
Washington Redskins (2-5) vs. Dallas Cowboys (6-1)
Odds: Cowboys -10 O/U 49.5
The Cowboys have the longest winning streak in the NFL, 6 games, and they are a double-digit home betting favorite on Monday night. The Redskins snapped their 4-game losing streak and their 12th ranked run D will face DeMarco Murray, who became the first RB in NFL history to start the season with 7 straight games rushing for over 100 yards. Colt McCoy will get the start for the Skins if Robert Griffin III cannot go and he was solid in the last game taking over for Kirk Cousins.
The Redskins are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games against the Cowboys in Dallas.
Pick Against the Spread: McCoy is the new guy and will play well and the Skins will cover the big spread in the Big D.
