Los Angeles Rams v. San Francisco 49ers

San Francisco continues to surprise me, as they dominated the Browns on Monday Night last week. This week, their opponent should pose a much tougher challenge. Los Angeles is not ready to bow down to the undefeated 49ers, as they still intend on taking the NFC West despite their 2 losses. Expect Jared Goff and Sean McVay to put up some points and game plan their way back into the win column against a familiar foe. San Francisco takes their first loss of the season on the road at the LA Coliseum.

Interesting Stats:

  • Last Meeting – 2018 Week 17 (48-32 Rams Win)
  • San Francisco has only won 2 out of their past 13 divisional games
  • Los Angeles has won 6 out of their previous 7 games against divisional opponents

Straight up Pick: Los Angeles Rams

Against the Spread: Los Angeles Rams -3

Over/Under: OVER 50.5

Arizona Cardinals v. Atlanta Falcons

Atlanta has been getting lit up on defense all season long. They have one of the worst rated defense in the league in both points scored and yards allowed. This has led to an unimpressive 1-4 start to the 2019 season. Arizona was expected to struggle as their new look team gains experience and finds a rhythm. Last week the Cardinals were able to get their first win of the season. Neither team is going to make any postseason noise this year, but I have a feeling the Falcons can use this game to right the ship to the bets of their ability.

Interesting Stats:

  • Last Meeting – 2018 Week 15 (40-14 Falcons Win)
  • Atlanta has won 7 consecutive games against the NFC West, and has won 8 consecutive games ATS against NFC West opponents
  • Arizona has hit the OVER in 10 out of their previous 11 games against NFC South opponents

Straight up Pick: Atlanta Falcons

Against the Spread: Atlanta Falcons -2.5

Over/Under: UNDER 52

Denver Broncos v. Tennessee Titans

Denver was finally able to put together a complete game last week and come away with a victory over the Chargers. Tennessee remained inconsistent and dropped a dud against the Bills. This week, the Broncos will look to gain some momentum as they are favored by a couple points at home. Tennessee, however, seems to thrive as the underdog. It could be a close one, but I am riding on the idea that Tennessee’s up and down season hits an up in Week 6 and they climb back to .500

Interesting Stats:

  • Last Meeting – 2016 Week 14 (13-10 Titans Win)
  • Tennessee has hit the UNDER in their last 6 games against AFC West opponents
  • Denver has only hit the OVER 3 times since the beginning of the 2018 season (21 games)

Straight Up Pick: Tennessee Titans

Against the Spread: Tennessee Titans +2

Over/Under: UNDER 40

New York Jets v. Dallas Cowboys

Dallas has now lost 2 straight games after starting 3-0. Last week was a complete game beat down by the Packers. Though the final score was relatively close, the Cowboys had no realistic chance to win after falling behind big early on. The Jets continue to look dreadful, but they have a glimmer of hope with Sam Darnold coming back from mono. Having Darnold should allow the Jets to open the playbook back up, but going up against Dallas will be a tough challenge. The Cowboys head into New York and cruise to another victory and get back in the win column.

Interesting Stats:

  • Last Meeting – 2015 Week 15 (19-16 Jets Win)
  • Dallas has won 7 out of their last 9 games as the Road Favorite, going 6-2-1 ATS
  • New York has lost 7 consecutive home games (0-6-1 ATS)

Straight up Pick: Dallas Cowboys

Against the Spread: Dallas Cowboys -7.5

Over/Under: OVER 43
