Saints at 49ers
Line: Saints -3, Pick: Saints-The Saints are flying under the radar. The lack of recognition is due to their below .500 record, but they are going to make some noise this week. The 49ers have shown to be a bottom tier team. As usual, the offense will carry New Orleans to a win by more than 3 points in San Fran.
Falcons at Buccaneers
Line: Falcons -3.5, Pick: Falcons-The Falcons’ offense has proven to be one of the most explosive in the league. Going into a divisional game on Thursday, expect Matty Ice to show up. Against a lackluster Buccaneers defense that gave up 5 Tds and 500+ yards just in the air to the Raiders last week. The Falcons are going to put points on the board and play at a pace Winston cannot keep up with.
Cowboys at Browns
Line: Cowboys -7.5, Pick: Cowboys-The Cowboys have continued to run hot. Coming off a win against a tough Eagles team, they are going to carry that momentum into Cleveland. Surprisingly, the Browns have kept a couple games close this year, including last week. However, Dallas is on another level, and only getting healthier. Expect a big margin of victory for the Cowboys.
Panthers at Rams
Line: Panthers -3, Pick: Panthers-The Panthers have replicated what the Seahawks are known for doing the last few years: Be a good team that gets off to an awful start. Carolina is determined to dig themselves out of the hole they have created, and they have the ability to do it. With a solid defense, along with a playmaker like Cam Newton, the Panthers’ record is not representative of their talent. The result? A spread that underestimates how much the Panthers are going to beat the Rams by.
Dolphins at Jets
Line: Dolphins -3.5, Pick: Dolphins- The well-rested Dolphins have looked remarkably better in their last two games. Jay Ajayi has been running like he is a transformer, and the defensive line has been getting to quarterbacks. Also, the Jets just barely beat the worst team in the league. Fitzpatrick better be careful, because that Dolphins defense knows how to shake up QBs.
