Detroit Lions v. New York Giants
Both teams enter this game with losing streaks in tact. The Giants have dropped 3 games in a row after Daniel Jones entered the season with 2 straight wins. Detroit has lost 3 tough games against the Chiefs, Packers, and Vikings and are looking to get the season back on track. I anticipate the Lions play up to their potential and take advantage of a less talented Giants squad.
- Last Meeting – 2017 Week 2 (24-10 Lions Win)
Straight up Pick: Detroit Lions
Against the Spread: Detroit Lions -7
Over/Under: UNDER 49
Atlanta Falcons v. Seattle Seahawks
Atlanta’s season has completely fallen apart and there doesn’t seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel. Seattle is fresh off a disappointing loss at home against the Ravens. In this matchup I am expecting a high scoring affair in which the Seahawks outpace the Falcons. Atlanta’s defense has been dreadful which could lead to a fantastic day out of Russell Wilson. The Falcon offense has plenty of potential with a ton of weapons, but they have been unimpressive so far in 2019.
- Last Meeting – 2017 Week 11 (34-31 Falcons Win)
Straight up Pick: Seattle Seahawks
Against the Spread: Seattle Seahawks -6.5
Over/Under: OVER 52.5
Buffalo Bills v. Philadelphia Eagles
Buffalo looks to prove to the league that they are a legitimate contender. Despite their 5-1 record, many people around the league are not giving the Bills a ton of credit. Philadelphia on the other hand, has shown signs of greatness, but have also followed that up with terrible performances. Philadelphia will look to get back on track after getting thumped by the Cowboys a week ago. They will face off against one of the toughest defenses in the league. However, the Bills offense has not been overly impressive, so if the Eagles can limit their mistakes, they should be in a tight one on the Road with the Bills and have a chance to pull the upset.
- Last Meeting – 2015 Week 14 (23-20 Eagles Win)
Straight up Pick: Philadelphia Eagles
Against the Spread: Philadelphia Eagles +2
Over/Under: UNDER 43.5
Chicago Bears v. Los Angeles Chargers
Los Angeles is quickly losing control of their season. They were expected to compete with the Chiefs in the AFC West, but have looked downright terrible at times. They lost a controversial one against the Titans last week and look to bounce back against the Bears. The only problem is, the Bears are one of the best defenses in the league and getting through them will be no small task. I anticipate the Bears controlling this game with their stout defense and securing a win at home.
- Last Meeting – 2015 Week 9 (22-19 Bears Win)
Straight up Pick: Chicago Bears
Against the Spread: Chicago Bears -4
Over/Under: UNDER 41
Tennessee Titans v. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Both teams have played well at times and have played awful at times. Tennessee really hoped they would take a step forward after a promising 2018 season. Tampa Bay has been making improvements every week, but their defense has been extremely porous. I have not had much luck betting on the Titans this season, so I am riding the Buccaneers in this one.
- Last Meeting – 2015 Week 1 (42-14 Titans Win)
Straight up Pick: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Against the Spread: Tampa Bay Buccaneers +2.5
Over/Under: UNDER 45.5
Indianapolis Colts v. Denver Broncos
Both Indianapolis and Denver have based their 2019 seasons on their defense. Indy has had more success on the offensive side of the ball with Jacoby Brissett filling in for Andrew Luck nicely. As I look at this game I see the Colts dominating a struggling Denver offense en route to an easy win. Denver’s defense should have a fair amount of success against the Indy offense as well, but the talent on Indianapolis should put up enough points to secure the W.
- Last Meeting – 2017 Week 15 (25-13 Broncos Win)
Straight up Pick: Indianapolis Colts
Against the Spread: Indianapolis Colts -6.5
Over/Under: UNDER 43
New Orleans Saints v. Arizona Cardinals
The Teddy Bridgewater experience in New Orleans may come to an end this weekend as Drew Brees stated he is planning on making his return this Sunday. Regardless of whether it is Brees or Bridgewater the Cardinals will be in for a tough one. New Orleans is the better team and they should be able to handle whatever the Cardinals throw at them. I expect the Saints to secure the win and cover the spread with relative ease.
- Last Meeting – 2016 Week 15 (48-41 Saints Win)
Straight up Pick: New Orleans Saints
Against the Spread: New Orleans Saints -10.5
Over/Under: OVER 49
Jacksonville Jaguars v. New York Jets
When Sam Darnold made his comeback a couple weeks ago against Dallas it appeared that he may be able to get the Jets back on track. Then they played New England and that hope dissipated quickly. Jacksonville has not looked impressive overall, but their defense has helped them get to 3 wins so far this season. I anticipate the Jags figure out a way to get to a 4th this Sunday. It should be an ugly game but Gardner Minshew finds a way to cover the spread and get the jags back to .500.
- Last Meeting – 2018 Week 4 (31-12 Jaguars Win)
Straight up Pick: Jacksonville Jaguars
Against the Spread: New York Jets +6
Over/Under: UNDER 41
Los Angeles Rams v. Cincinnati Bengals
We get another international game this week with the Rams and Bengals making the long trip over the big pond to play in London. The Rams are clearly the better team in this game and should be able to win this game overseas without much issue. However, the Bengals have a fairly successful record against the spread. I predict the Rams to get the win, but don’t be surprised to see a backdoor cover by the Bengals.
- Last Meeting – 2015 Week 12 (31-7 Bengals Win)
Straight up Pick: Los Angeles Rams
Against the Spread: Cincinnati Bengals +13.5
Over/Under: UNDER 48
