Upset of the Week
New Orleans Saints (+1) over Jacksonville Jaguars
I know this one isn’t a huge upset, as the Saints should be the better team. However, most sports books have been seeing a ton of action on the Jags in this one so they are listed as the favorites on Sunday. I don’t see that happening. I think the Saints are a better team offensively, and I think their defense is more than capable of shutting down the inconsistent Jacksonville offense. Give me the Saints all day on this pick.
Lock of the Week
Dallas Cowboys (-7.5) over New York Jets
The Jets have looked awful all season, and I think their misery continues against Dallas this week. I understand that Sam Darnold is back and he should revitalize the one dimensional New York offense a bit, but he’s going to be rusty, and the Dallas Cowboys are still a good team. The Cowboys desperately need to get back in the win column, and I think they do this in relatively easy fashion against the Jets, covering easily.
