Last week I went 11-5 (21-10) and 7-9 (17-14) against the spread.
Los Angeles Rams (1-1) at San Francisco 49ers (0-2)
Line: Rams by 2
An early season divisional rival game between two lackluster teams; the Rams defense was terrible last week, but they’re playing a team with a terrible offense. Rams get back on track. Take the Rams to win and cover.
Baltimore Ravens (2-0) vs. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-1)
Line: Ravens by 3.5
London’s first game of the season features two teams with very good defenses, but Jacksonville’s offense isn’t anygood. Take the Ravens to win and cover.
Cleveland Browns (0-2) at Indianapolis Colts (0-2)
Line: Browns by 1
Indianapolis played better last week than anyone expected, and with the Browns in town they’ll get their first win. Take the Colts in an upset.
Pittsburgh Steelers (2-0) at Chicago Bears (0-2)
Line: Steelers by 7
Pittsburgh had to work hard for their first two wins, but pretty much can take the day off in Chicago and leave with the win. Take the Steelers to win and cover.
Miami Dolphins (1-0) at New York Jets (0-2)
Line: Dolphins by 6
Usually two consecutive road games are tough, but the Dolphins will have little trouble against a Jets team that has issues on both sides of the ball. Take the Dolphins to win and cover.
|The Sports Doctor|
Line: Broncos by 3
The Bills defense won’t be able to handle the surprising Denver offense, and Denver’s defense will not allow Buffalo even near the red zone. Take the Broncos to win and cover.
Houston Texans (1-1) at New England Patriots (1-1)
Line: Patriots by 13
We saw the real Patriots last week against the Saints, and that’s not good for a struggling Houston team on the road. Take the Patriots to win and cover.
New Orleans Saints (0-2) at Carolina Panthers (2-0)
Line: Panthers by 6
The winless Saints won’t be able to regroup on the road despite having a better than average offense. Carolina’s defense will be the difference here. Take the Panthers to win and cover.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-0) at Minnesota Vikings (1-1)
Hard to get a read on the Bucs after beating the lowly Bears, but their defense looked good. Minnesota is a tough place to play your first road game of the year though, but the Vikings depend on Sam Bradford being back to win. Take the Vikings.
Atlanta Falcons (2-0) at Detroit Lions (2-0)
Line: Falcons by 3
The Lions fairytale start to the season ends on Sunday when Atlanta’s Matt Ryan shows up the overpaid Matt Stafford. Take the Falcons to win and cover.
New York Giants (0-2) at Philadelphia Eagles (1-1)
Line: Eagles by 6
The Giants are a terrible football team, the kind that Philadelphia fans love coming to town. Poor Eli will have a tough day against an excellent Eagles defense. Take the Eagles to win and cover.
Seattle Seahawks (1-1) at Tennessee Titans (1-1)
Line: Titans by 3
Seattle have struggled this season due to their poor O-Line, but always seem to make the necessary corrections even on the road. Take the Seahawks in an upset.
Kansas City Chiefs (2-0) at Los Angeles Chargers (0-2)
Line: Chiefs by 3
Kansas City gutted one out last week against the Eagles, and should have little trouble against a winless, homeless team. Take the Chiefs to win and cover.
Cincinnati Bengals (0-2) at Green Bay Packers (1-1)
Line: Packers by 8.5
You don’t think a team that hasn’t scored a point this season will put up a fight at Lambeau Field do you? Take the Packers to win and cover.
Oakland Raiders (2-0) at Washington Redskins (1-1)
Line: Raiders by 3
Oakland has impressed the first two weeks, but they still allowed the Jets to score 20 points. That won’t cut it against Washington. Take the Redskins in an upset.
Dallas Cowboys (1-1) at Arizona Cardinals (1-1)
Line: Cowboys by 3
Arizona’s home opener is going to be tough on a team playing their second consecutive road game. However, I think Dallas, given all the Elliott turmoil will be fired up in a Monday nighter. Take the Cowboys to win and cover
