NFL Expert Picks
Leg 1: Bengals +5 @ +100
Tennessee is worse than their record would tell you and the Bengals are better than theirs. That’s really as deep as this bet goes. The Titans’ five wins have come by an average of 11.6 points, but if you take out their lone blowout win against the Bills, you have a 2-point win over Denver, a 3-point win over the Jaguars, a 1-point win over the Vikings and a 6-point win over the Texans. Those are four close games against four average teams. Tennessee plays down to its competition, and the Bengals, fresh off the best game of Joe Burrow’s young career, seem to be hitting a stride.
I like Tennessee to win by maybe a field goal, but I think the Bengals’ offense keeps them hanging around longer than some would assume.
Leg 2: Broncos ML @ +150
We’re going to go ahead and put a line through last week’s loss against the Chiefs. The Broncos weren’t ready for that game and it was reflected in the final score. It’s a game that they were in all the way up until a 102-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, then the wheels fell off.
With Drew Lock as their starter, the Broncos have proven they can win games. He is 5-3 as a starter in Denver, and the team seems to respond to his leadership. Meanwhile. Justin Herbert is coming off the best start of his NFL career and first win. I love Herbert, he’s an absolute stud, but going to Denver and getting a win on the road against a good Denver defense is tough. I like the undedogs to rough the rookie up a bit and get the win.
Leg 3: Saints -4.5 @ -106
Michael Thomas was back at practice on Thursday and looks as though he might play this week, which is obviously a needed boost for the Saints’ offense. Chicago continues to underwhelm me. I agree that their defense is very good, but they’re going to have to score points to keep up with the Saints and I don’t think they’ll be able to do that. I expect something similar to the Rams game last week, with the Bears’ defense playing its heart out while the offense struggles to put together drives.
Leg 4: Under 50.5 @ -104
I used this one in my game picks this week, but I really like this play. The Colts’ defense has been really good this season. They're 4th in DVOA and give up just 19.2 points per game. As far as their offense is concerned, it’s underperformed this year. Phillip Rivers hasn’t looked like himself for much of the season and has struggled to get some of his weapons involved. Detroit has been inconsistent, and I don’t expect them to move the ball with much ease come Sunday. Looking for something like a 21-13 win here for the Colts.
