2022 NFL Week 5 Survivor Pick: The upset to avoid

2022 NFL Week 5 Survivor Pick: The upset to avoid

One of the most frustrating contests in the NFL is the survivor contest. The rules are simple because all you must do is pick one team to win a football game. However, it is never as easy as it looks. One mistake and you are booted out of the contest and if a popular pick loses, the whole contest can be turned upset down. It is not easy this week and here is the 2022 NFL Week 5 survivor pick to avoid.

Popular Picks

The most popular pick is usually the game with the highest point-spread. This week the Buffalo Bills have the highest spread (-14) against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Bills will be a popular pick against a rookie quarterback in Kenny Pickett making his first start of his career. However, the Bills have the Chiefs on deck and may be looking ahead to that big game.

The Packers will be another popular pick against a Giants team that is decimated by injuries. However, this game is in London and that will bring plenty of distractions for each team. The Patriots showed that a good defense can keep the game close and Big Blue does have a good defensive squad.

Other popular picks will include the Jaguars and the Buccaneers.

Surprise Picks

Survivor contests are fun because you can only pick a team once during the year. This will cause some contestants to make “surprise” picks. The goal is to pick a team that will still win but avoid the popular picks in case of a major upset. This week teams like the Vikings and the Saints fit the bill as teams that should win but will not be the most popular picks of the week.

The Upset to Avoid

There is another game that can be considered a “trap” game on the schedule, but the pick to avoid in survivor is Tennessee. Derrick Henry is a monster, and the Commanders are struggling to do anything right this season. But beware taking the Titans in this game.  Washington is at home and well-cached. This game is a “must-win” and desperate teams at home tend to play harder. Avoid the Titans at all costs as the upset to avoid in Week 5 of the NFL.

The important factor to consider when looking at the early point spreads is what games provide value and what games to avoid. The game that you want to avoid usually comes in the form of a trap game.

What’s a trap game? 

A “trap” game is a game that looks too good to be true. It looks so easy to bet that you want to run to your betting website and quickly put in the wager. That bet usually loses and it leaves the player confused and searching for answers. Last week we pointed out the “trap game” and it paid off if you bet the other way.

 

Here is the complete 2022 NFL odds Week 5

 

Matchup Time Spread Over/Under
Colts at Broncos Thurs, 8:15 p.m. ET Broncos -3.5 43.5
Giants at Packers* Sun, 9:30 a.m. ET Packers -7.5 41.5
Steelers at Bills Sun, 1 p.m. ET Bills -14 47
Chargers at Browns Sun, 1 p.m. ET Browns +3 47.5
Texans at Jaguars Sun, 1 p.m. ET Jaguars -7.5 44.5
Bears at Vikings Sun, 1 p.m. ET Vikings -6.5 44
Lions at Patriots Sun, 1 p.m. ET Patriots -2.5 46.5
Seahawks at Saints Sun, 1 p.m. ET Saints -5.5 45.5
Dolphins at Jets Sun, 1 p.m. ET Jets +3 43
Falcons at Buccaneers Sun, 1 p.m. ET Buccaneers -8.5 48.5
Titans at Commanders Sun, 1 p.m. ET Commanders +2.5 42.5
49ers at Panthers Sun, 4:05 p.m. ET Panthers +4.5 39
Eagles at Cardinals Sun, 4:25 p.m. ET Cardinals +5 49.5
Cowboys at Rams Sun, 4:25 p.m. ET Rams -4.5 45.5
Bengals at Ravens Sun, 8:20 p.m. ET Ravens -3 48
Raiders at Chiefs Mon, 8:15 p.m. ET Chiefs -7.5 51

The Trap Game

This week there are several games that look too good to be true. Like the Packers against the Giants or the Jaguars over the Texans, but the one line that stands out to me is in a different game.

The 49ers just beat up the Rams and now they are small -4 favorites against the Carolina Panthers. Baker Mayfield and the Panthers look miserable this year and everyone will run to bet on San Francisco. Be careful. The 49ers are on a short week and they are coming off a big win against the Rams. This is a letdown spot and the point-spread is low for a reason. This is the trap game and maybe a game you want to avoid this week.

2022 NFL Week 4 picks against the spread for every game

2022 NFL Week 4 picks against the spread for every game

Week 4 of the NFL brings plenty of things to consider. The injuries are starting to pile up as superstar players are getting banged up. The NFL returns to London for an early game and the schedule features multiple big-time matchups. The Thursday game is in the books so It is time for the 2022 NFL Week 4 picks against the spread for every game.

Vikings vs Saints (Early start)

The Saints got to London earlier than the Vikings, but they are dealing with more injuries. Jameis Winston, Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas will not play in this game. This is not good for a Saints team that has failed to cover the spread this season (0-3 ATS) and who are 1-5 ATS as an underdog. The Vikings win and cover the early game.

Bet Vikings -2.5 [BET NOW]

 

Browns at Falcons

When this point spread first came out, there was something stinky about it. The Browns are a much better team, so why the small betting line? Maybe it’s because the Browns are just 8-15 ATS as a favorite and Atlanta is a perfect 3-0 against the number this season. The Browns will be shorthanded on defense after losing Myles Garrett to an injury that he sustained in a car accident. The Falcons will move the ball on offense and beat the Browns.

Bet Falcons +1.5 [BET NOW]

 

Bills at Ravens

Thismay be a preview of the AFC Championship game as two talented teams face off in Baltimore. Lamar Jackson will be able to torch a depleted Buffalo secondary and the Ravens are one of the best teams to bet on as an underdog. The Ravens are 14-2 ATS as an underdog and a perfect 5-0 ATS as a home underdog.

Bet Ravens +3.5 [BET NOW]

 

Washington at Cowboys

The Cowboys are on upset alert. Everyone loves Cooper Rush for winning ballgames while Dak Prescott gets healthy and they look incredible on defense. However, they will be in trouble today against a Washington team that has struggled up to this point. The Cowboys are off a short week and Wentz can beat this secondary if given time to throw. Washington was crushed last year in Dallas and will be out for revenge.

Bet Washington +3.5 [BET NOW]

 

Seahawks at Lions

The Lions are limping into this game and will not have Swift or St Brown on offense and that will be a big problem. Seattle is starting to produce on offense and Geno Smith knows how to cash tickets with a 22-15 ATS record in his career. The Seahawks take down the Lions.

Bet Seahawks +4.5 [BET NOW]

 

Chargers at Texans

The Texans may not be winning but they are keeping games close and today they face a Chargers team that is crushed by injuries. LA is 0-3 straight up as road favorites under Brandon Staley who will be on the hot seat when they lose in Houston today. Don’t take the Chargers as your survivor pick. The Texans are 2-0-1 ATS this season and will remain perfect after cashing in today.

Bet Texans +4.5 [BET NOW]

 

Titans at Colts

The Colts got back on track with a big win against the Chiefs last week. With a win against the Titans, they can get right back into the race for the division. The Titans are -33 which is the worst in the league and are having a tough season. Derrick Henry is the only threat on a team that looks lost offensively. The favorite has covered 14 of 19 games in this series.

Bet Colts -3.5 [BET NOW]

 

Bears at Giants

Well, something has to give in to what might be the ugliest game of the day. Both the Bears and the Giants are winning but it ain’t pretty. The Bears are 9-17 ATS on the road and 4-11 ATS as an underdog. The Giants have the better offense and they will take down the Bears at home. This may be tough to watch, but Big Blue wins at home.

Bet Giants -3.5 [BET NOW]

 

Jaguars at Eagles

Jalen Hurts and the Eagles are having an incredible start to the season but will get a test against Jacksonville on Sunday. This will be the best defense that Philly has faced this year. Jacksonville is a new team under Doug Pederson who makes his return to Philadelphia and would love to beat his former team. The Eagles are 4-11-1 ATS after a win against the spread and will be involved in a clash that comes down to the final minutes.

Bet Jags +6.5 [BET NOW]

 

Jets at Steelers

I am not ready to bet on Pittsburgh laying points with all of the problems they have had on offense. They are also just 1-5 ATS as a favorite and face a Jets team that actually looks pretty good on offense and will get Zach Wilson back under center. The Steeler’s poor play today will finally lead to the benching of Mitch Trubisky.

Bet Jets +3.5 [BET NOW]

 

Arizona at Carolina

This is the kind of game that Arizona has to win if they have hopes of making the playoffs. The Cardinals thrive as a road underdog and have won seven straight games in that spot. The Panthers have injuries, and quarterback problems and have lost seven straight games outright as a favorite. Kyler Murray leads the Cards to an easy road victory over Carolina.

Bet Cardinals +1 [BET NOW]

 

Patriots at Packers

Bill Belichick is one of the best coaches ever, but he won’t have any answers today. Brian Hoyer starts at QB and he does not have the arm strength to stretch the field. That will allow the Packer’s defense to compress the field and shorten drives for New England. That leaves Aaron Rodgers all day to expose a tired Patriots defense. Green Bay is 4-0 ATS as a double-digit favorite and 17-7 ATS when favored at home.

Bet Packers -10.5 [BET NOW]

 

Broncos vs Raiders

This AFC West matchup features two of the biggest disappointments of the young season. Las Vegas has yet to cover a game this season but will love to see Denver coming to town since they have covered eight of the last nine meetings. The Broncos commit too many penalties and they have yet to get the offense on track. The Raiders finally get a win.

Bet Raiders -2.5 [BET NOW]

Thursday Night Football: Dolphins vs Bengals Predictions

Thursday Night Football: Dolphins vs Bengals Predictions

It will only take a quick glance at the Week 4 NFL odds to see an incredible game that will jump off the sheet. The surprising Miami Dolphins head to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals on Thursday night football. It is early in the season, but this game feature two teams that will make the playoffs. The Dolphins vs Bengals predictions cover everything you need to know to bet on Thursday night.

Dolphins vs Bengals odds

The Bengals have started the season off slowly but finally got a victory last week against the Jets. The sportsbooks have the Bengals as small two-point favorites. The Bengals are at home, but the Dolphins are one of the hottest teams in the league. They are off an impressive win against the Buffalo Bills and feature an explosive offense led by quarterback Tua Tagalovia. Road underdogs are paying off this year with a 14-9-1 against the spread (ATS) record. But what about this week?

Love for the D

Tua and the offense are getting all the love, but the defense is equally dominating. In the win against the Bills, the defensive line harassed Josh Allen and locked up Buffalo’s offense. The defense had 20 QB pressures, 10 QB hits, and four sacks. This is a unit to watch against Joe Burrow and a rebuilt offensive line.

Bury the Bengals?

Is it time to bury the Bengals? They are 1-2 this season and although they beat the Jets, it wasn’t stellar. Running back Joe Mixon is hobbled and the Bengals cannot afford to lose another game this early in the season. The o-line is getting better and they protected Joe and allowed the mobile QB to put up big numbers early in the game against the Jets.

Dolphins vs Bengals Predictions

The Dolphins are banged up and overrated. They are traveling on a short week with a rookie coach off the biggest win of the season. The Bengals need a win and they are at home. They are also 9-2 ATS in the last 11 games overall and 4-1 ATS in the last five home games. The Bengals make a statement with a big win over Miami on Thursday night.

Bengals -2.5 (BET NOW)

2022 NFL Week 4 odds and the stinky line

Betting on the NFL is easy, winning is hard. If you want to be ahead of the game and try to find the best value, it is always important to look at the NFL odds as soon as they are released. You can pick winners by doing the extra work. Whenever the odds are put out, there are always a few games that stand out above the rest. Here are the 2022 NFL Week 4 odds and the one stinky line that you have to pay attention to.

Denver Broncos (+2.5) vs. Las Vegas Raiders (-2.5)

Kansas City Chiefs (-2.5) vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+2.5)

Los Angeles Rams (+2.5) vs. San Francisco 49ers (-2.5)

Stinky Line

It is still early in the season but a few of these lines look too good to be true. But there is another one that jumps off the page as “stinky”. How are the Browns only (-2.5) point favorites over the hapless Falcons? The browns beat down the Steelers and they have extra rest. It is clear that the Falcons are playing for next year, although they are off a win. This line stinks. Bettors beware before you bet on the Browns.  If it looks too good to be true it usually is.

Chiefs vs Colts

The Colts are at home and they need a win if they have any hope of going to the playoffs. Everyone is fading the Colts and that’s when you bet on them. Patrick Mahomes has been sacked 8 times in two starts against the Colts.

Colts +5.5

Bills vs Dolphins

The game of the day will prove if Miami and Tua are for real. The Bills will be without Micah Hyde and they have a slew of injuries to the secondary. Tua is 9-3 against the spread (ATS) at home and Buffalo is on upset alert.

Dolphins +5

Raiders at Titans

Both teams have yet to win and something has to give. Hard to understand why the Raiders are favorites considering they are 1-8 ATS as a road favorite. This is a chance to take another home dog to get it done.

Titans +2.5

Lions at Vikings

Everyone is high on Detroit, but their defense gets crushed against good pass catchers, and that sets up a great matchup for Justin Jefferson. The Vikings are a much better team at home. The Vikings are an NFL-best 41-21-2 ATS after a loss.

Vikings -6

Ravens at Patriots

The wise guys are backing the Patriots who are 17-3 in home openers. Lamar Jackson is dealing with a sore throwing arm and the Patriot’s defense is better than people think. Bill Belichick loves the underdog role and cashes in at 15-5 ATS in the last 20 games as an underdog.

Patriots +3

Bengals at Jets

The Bengals are struggling to protect Joe Burrow who has been sacked 13 times already. But the Bengals are the much better team and the Jets are 2-12 ATS in the month of September.

Bengals -6

Eagles at Washington

The Eagles bandwagon is loaded with rabid fans that believe Philly can win it all. That’s the perfect time to bet against a team on a short week and to back the divisional dog. Carson Wentz is overlooked so far although he ranks first with seven touchdown passes. Wentz is 5-1 ATS as a dog and the Commanders get the win at home.

Washington +6.5

Saints at Panthers

The Saints are very bad at putting pressure on the QB and even Baker Mayfield can have success with no pressure. Winston is hurt and throwing interceptions. 0-2 teams are 46-29-1 ATS when facing a team that won in the previous week.

Panthers +3

Texans at Bears

There is nothing to like about this game unless you are a fan of either club. If that’s the case, you have had a tough few years. This is a pass for me, but since we are picking every game…

Bears -2.5

Jaguars at Chargers

The Jags are the trendy dog which usually means to bet the favorite. However, Justin Herbert is hurt and is a true game-time decision. If he plays, the Chargers are the play.

Chargers -7

Packers at Buccaneers

Two Hall of Fame QB’s going up against each other with injured pass catchers may make for a snooze fest. Brady is 3-1 ATS Rodgers and Tampa Bay can pressure the QB. The Packers are 0-4 ATS in the last four road games and they will lose this game.

Buccaneers -2.5

49ers at Broncos

Jimmy G is back and now the 49ers are considered Super Bowl contenders again. Meanwhile, the Broncos look sloppy and have made some questionable coaching calls. But Denver is 3-0 ATS in the last 3 as an underdog at home and 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan is 15-24-2 ATS as a favorite.

Denver +1.5

NFL MNF Doubleheader predictions and picks against the spread

NFL MNF Doubleheader predictions and picks against the spread

After an exciting Sunday in the NFL, the action heats up again on Monday with two great games. The Buffalo Bills host the Tennessee Titans, and the Minnesota Vikings take on the Philadelphia Eagles as part of a twin bill on Monday Night Football. The latest NFL MNF Doubleheader predictions includes picks for both games.

Titans vs Bills

The Buffalo Bills are a front runner to win the Super Bowl and they looked great in the opener. Now they host the Titans who are off a very disappointing loss against the Giants. Look for a grind it out slow-paced tilt between two juggernauts that play tight and tough defense. The Titans rely heavily on Derrick Henry. Henry has done well against the Bills in the past but that is when they had some semblance of a passing game. This game has low scoring written all over it and that means a close game. The Titans are 8-2 against the spread (ATS) On Monday Night Football and 6-2 ATS as an underdog.

Titans +10

[Bet on the game here]

Vikings vs Eagles

The Vikings and Justin Jefferson looked unstoppable in the opener against the Packers. Kirk Cousins will want to light up the scoreboard against the Vikings. Minnesota plays differently on the road than they do at home. Its worth noting that the Vikings are 4-12 ATS on Monday night games. Jalen Hurts has already formed a bond with newly acquired wideout AJ Brown and the offense will make its debut in front of the Philly faithful. The Eagles are a perfect 3-0-1 ATS at home as a favorite and they pull off the win and cover on Monday night Football.

Eagles -2.5

San Francisco 49ers -9

[Bet on the game here]

The 49ers looked very bad against the Bears in Week 1, but they did play in some pretty bad weather. They will be focused against a Seattle team that is off an emotional win at home on a Monday night. Geno Smith will not be as productive on a short week against a 49ers defense that will dominate this game. The 49ers have covered four of the last five games against the spread (ATS) after a loss. Trey Lance shows up and the 49ers win big on Sunday.

Washington Commanders +2

[Bet on the game here]

Ever since appearing on Hard Knocks, the Detroit Lions have been getting a bunch of hype. But in Week 1 the Lion’s defense was exposed. The Lions are favorites for the first time in 24 games and this is not a good spot for this team. Carson Wentz looked solid in his debut for the Commanders and it is clear that Ron Rivera knows how to get the best out of Wentz. The Commanders are 3-1-1 ATS in the last five road games and they pull off the upset on the road.

New England Patriots -2.5

[Bet on the game here]

Wait, the Patriots are favorites on the road? They lost in Week 1 and the Steelers had an incredible win. If it looks too good it usually is. The Steelers won because they had turnovers, but they really struggled on offense. Now they have to play defense without TJ Watt and that will cripple this team. The Patriots struggled in Week 1, but Bill Belichick is 6-3-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings with the Steelers. Patriots win and cover in Pittsburgh.

Dallas Cowboys +7

[Bet on the game here]

The Cowboys will not have Dak Prescott but they still have a shot to win this game. Sure the Bengals have an explosive offense led by Joe Burrow, but that offensive line is still in shambles. That is why the Bengals allowed numerous sacks and turnovers against the Steelers. The Cowboys have a defense that can exploit that weakness. The Cowboys are 6-1 ATS after a loss and they keep this game close. Take the points and the Cowboys.

Green Bay Packers -10

[Bet on the game here]

The Sunday night game will be the Aaron Rodgers show. He owns the Bears and he will be laser-focused after a loss to start the season. Sure, the Bears won, but the weather helped and that won’t be a factor tonight. The public is backing Chicago and overreacting to the outcome of Week 1. That’s a big mistake. The Packers are 9-0 ATS after a loss and 17-7 ATS at home. This one will get ugly as the Packers trounce the Bears.

Thursday Night Football: Chargers vs Chiefs predictions and picks

Thursday Night Football: Chargers vs Chiefs predictions and picks

The NFL had a fantastic Week 1, but it only gets better. Week 2 of the National Football League will start with an incredible game between AFC West rivals. The LA Chargers will hit the road to take on the Kansas City Chiefs in an epic showdown featuring two Super Bowl contenders. The Chargers vs Chiefs predictions and picks will be tough to make in this primetime event.

Tough Schedule

The Chargers schedule is not very friendly to start the season. It is very difficult for any team to hit the NFL highway on a short week. To make things more complicated, the Chargers will have to prepare to play in one of the most hostile environments in the league. Arrowhead stadium will be rocking with rabid fans ready to cheer on the home team. IN the past LA has thrived as a road underdog with a 36-16-4 against the spread record. The Chargers will need all players ready to go, but that is not going to happen.

Status Report

Unfortunately, standout wide receiver Keenan Allen will not be able to play on Thursday night. Allen is sidelined with a hamstring injury, but the Chargers may get some help on defense. Cornerback JC Jackson is a game time decision and he will be needed to slow down Patrick Mahomes and the explosive Chiefs offense. 

Odds Watch

The Chiefs are -4 favorites and the betting total sits at 54.5. Normally the home team in an even matchup will get 3 points, but the tough road trip on a short week adds a point. However, since the betting opened, the line has dipped and can be found at -3.5 at several of the top places to bet on Thursday night football. 

Chargers vs Chiefs predictions

So who wins? This has the potential to be a very close game. The Chiefs have the home field advantage and are off a huge win. However, the win against Arizona may be watered down if the Cardinals end up being a bad team. The Chiefs defense ranked 27th overall last year, but also looked better against the Cardinals. But this is not the Cardinals offense.

This is a Chargers offense led by Justin Herbert who is a MVP contender. But Mahomes is no slouch as the leader of the Chiefs offense. The real difference between these two teams is defense. 

The Chargers have a much better defense. A defense that will only get better with the possible return of JC Jackson. The Chargers had 22 pressures and six sacks last week and will put Mahomes on the run. Ultimately this will lead to good field position and turnovers for the Chargers. The road team in this series has covered 16 of the last 21 meetings. 

The Chargers will win the game making it three straight victories at Kansas City.

Chargers +3.5

Sunday, Sept. 11:

  • Saints at Falcons (1 p.m.)

Odds: Saints -4.5

Pick: Saints -4.5 [Bet Now]

 

  • Browns at Panthers (1 p.m.)

Odds: Panthers +1

With the ever-changing Deshaun Watson saga, this point spread will change. But it won’t matter because Baker Mayfield will want revenge. The Panthers have a good defense and a healthy Christian McCaffrey. And the NFL hates the Browns.

Pick: Panthers +1 [Bet Now]

 

  • 49ers at Bears (1 p.m.)

Odds: 49ers -6.5

The 49ers are another popular pick to have a great season. But it will take some time for Trey Lance to round into form. Justin Fields will be the better QB on opening day as the Bears keep this game close.

Pick: Bears +6.5 [Bet Now]

 

  • Steelers at Bengals (1 p.m.)

Odds: Bengals -6.5

Joe Burrow and the Bengals stunned the NFL world last year with a Super Bowl appearance. Losers of the big game tend to have a hangover in the first game of the next season. The Steelers will be prepared to play.

Pick: Steelers +6.5 [Bet Now]

 

  • Eagles at Lions (1 p.m.)

Odds: Eagles -4

After trading for All-Pro WR AJ Brown in the offseason, expectations are high in Philadelphia. Bu the same could be said for Detroit. Dan Campbell has this team trending in the right direction. The Lions played numerous close games last year and that trend will continue this season.

Pick: Lions +4 [Bet Now]

 

  • Colts at Texans (1 p.m.)

Odds: Colts -8

The biggest spread of week 1 belongs to the Colts and for a good reason. The Texans are the worst team in the game. Matt Ryan cannot wait to try out his new weapons and the Colts will put up 40 points. This has blowout written all over it.

Pick: Colts -8 [Bet Now]

 

  • Patriots at Dolphins (1 p.m.)

Odds: Dolphins -2.5

The Dolphins always find a way to beat the Patriots. The Pat’s offense will struggle with the new adjustments and the new coordinator(s). Tua and Tyreek put on a show for the hometown faithful and deliver the Patriots another loss in South Beach.

Pick: Dolphins -2.5 [Bet Here]

 

  • Ravens at Jets (1 p.m.)

Odds: Ravens -6

The Jets are getting high praise for the NFL draft and adjustments that they have made in the offseason. Meanwhile, all the talk around Baltimore is the Lamar Jackson contract. But when the game starts everyone will remember why the Ravens are such a good team.

Pick: Ravens -6 [Bet Here]

 

  • Jaguars at Commanders (1 p.m.)

Odds: Commanders -4

Two struggling franchises eager to change things up meet in Week 1. Carson Wentz against his former coach is a good side story, but other than that, this game is low on the “must-see” TV list. These teams will have problems covering more than a field goal.

  • Chiefs at Cardinals (4:25 p.m.)

Odds: Chiefs -3

The Chiefs still have a lot to prove. Tyreek Hill is gone and many have questioned the offense. The Cardinals are looking to win without the suspended Deandre Hopkins. The Chiefs have the advantage in the trenches and start the season with an impressive road win.

Pick: Chiefs -3 [Bet Here]

 

  • Raiders at Chargers (4:25 p.m.)

Odds: Chargers -3.5

The Chargers start the season with a big revenge game against the Raiders. The Raiders bring in Davante Adams to give the offense a boost and this has all the makings of a slugfest in the AFC West. The Bolts get revenge with a big opening day victory.

Pick: Chargers -3.5 [Bet Here]

 

  • Packers at Vikings (4:25 p.m.)

Odds: Packers -2

Aaron Rodgers lost his favorite target to free agency. The Vikings will have an edge with better weapons on offense. The Packers have problems in the season opener as Kirk Cousins and the Vikings roll to an easy victory. The wrong team is favored.

Pick: BEST BET Vikings +2 [Bet Here]

 

  • Giants at Titans (4:25 p.m.)

Odds: Titans -6.5

The Titans are going to take a step back this season. They lost AJ Brown and Ryan Tannehill is still trying to get over the playoff-eliminating loss. The Giants have a new coaching staff and a revamped offensive line. With a healthy Saquon Barkley in the backfield, the Giants will get the road W in Tennessee.

Pick: Giants +6.5 [Bet Here]

 

  • Buccaneers at Cowboys (8:20 p.m.)

Odds: Bucs -2

The Sunday night football game is a good one as Tom Brady and the Buccaneers battle the Dallas Cowboys. Dak Prescott will have to adjust to life without Amari Cooper, but the Cowboys will be a playoff team this season. They will just need time to adjust. Meanwhile, Brady and the Bucs will be ready on opening night and they win a competitive game.

Pick: Bucs -2 [Bet Here]

 

Monday, Sept. 12:

  • Broncos at Seahawks (8:20 p.m.)

Odds: Broncos -4.5

The Monday night football game will be labeled a revenge game. Russell Wilson returns to Seattle, but this time as a member of the Denver Broncos. The Broncos have a new coach, a new system, and a new quarterback. They will have some issues against an experienced coach who knows everything about Wilson. Denver will be a better team at the end of the season, but in this game, Seattle will surprise.

Pick: Seattle +4.5 [Bet Here]
