Colts Are Back In the Race
The Indianapolis Colts have had a slow start to the season. Early adjustments, a tough schedule, and injuries sidelined this team for the first few weeks. That has changed and this team is ready to show the league they are back. They get a big chance at home today in a rematch game against their division rivals.
The Titan’s defense can be beaten on the ground and the Colts young RB Jonathan Taylor has averaged 126 rushing yards over the last two weeks. The Colts have covered four straight games behind a revitalized Carson Wentz who is clicking on offense. The Colts win a close game and cover the number.
Patriots Out To Prove Something
Who are the Patriots? We really don’t know yet. They have looked good against bad teams and have failed to finish against good teams. They get another chance today with a coast-to-coast trip to take on Justin Herbert and the Chargers.
Throw out all of the trends with Tom Brady on the team and the Patriots are still a respectable 6-5 ATS as a dog. Bill Belichick knows how to confuse young quarterbacks and the Chargers of some injury issues that are concerning. There are two things to watch in this game.
The Patriots are much better than the Chargers on special teams and Hunter Henry will be facing off against his former team. The Chargers are 3-11 ATS at home against a team with a losing record. The Patriots will control the ball and will have the Bolts on upset alert.
Minnesota is For Real
The big story about the Sunday night game is the health of Cowboys QB Dak Prescott. It won’t matter if he plays or not. The Vikings have the better team. They are better on defense and on offense. It is smart to bet the Vikings now and then if Dak plays and the spread flips again you can look for more value.
Kirk Cousins is easily the most underrated QB in the NFL. People may point out his poor record in primetime games, but he is actually 5-2 ATS on Sunday Night Football. The Cowboys are 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings against the Vikings and 1-5 ATS in Minnesota. Dallas is the only undefeated team against the spread (6-0) but that ends tonight.
