Tennessee to beat Jacksonville – 5/6
There may have been a slight overreaction to the Jags’ defensive performance last weekend against a Houston offence that’s projected to be bottom three in the NFL. Corey Davis looked great on debut for the Titans and with Jacksonville’s two cornerbacks appearing on the injury report this week, as well as losing Allen Robinson for the year, it’s advisable to take Mariota and company to get their first win of the season.
Oakland to beat New York Jets at (-13) – 10/11
It wouldn’t be often that I bet on a double-digit handicap favourite in the NFL, but rarely is there a team as bad as the Jets competing in the league. The Oakland defence looked menacing on the road against the Titans last week and I foresee serious problems for the Jets to keep the scoreboard ticking over.
Denver (+2 ) vs Dallas – 20/21
Playing on the road in Denver is a different experience to visiting any other stadium in the league. That Mile High is justifiably the highest rated home field advantage is an opinion held by many, not just myself. Now we’re getting points for a team I have rated better on a neutral field and they are at home. Coming off a short week isn’t the end of the world.
Green Bay at Atlanta Over 54 Total Match Points – 20/23
Atlanta’s defence isn’t at the level of Seattle’s and everyone knows how dangerous Rodgers can be week to week. I think the low scoreline by Seattle’s offence in Green Bay was more a result of inept O-Line play and wind rather than a strong Packers unit. Additionally, Matt Ryan has always been stronger at home in the Dome than on the road. For a change, a nice bet to cheer on in the best matchup of the week.
