Low volume again this week, just the sneaky double.

Tennessee Titans v LA Chargers: Titans +6.5 – 10/11

Both teams are at a disadvantage here having to travel to London to play. The Chargers stayed in Ohio after beating the Browns last weekend too – that’s a pretty tough back-to-back road trip.

This number is where I marked the game if LA were playing at home so have to take the extra few points when on a neutral pitch.

It’s tough putting our money behind Marcus Mariota after their shambolic performance last weekend but the Titans D match up well against the Chargers and should suffocate Melvin Gordon.

Cleveland Browns @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Browns +3.5 – 10/11

At one stage, the Browns were -1.5 in the market versus the Chargers last weekend. They don’t turn up and now are a decent dog against Tampa.

Doesn’t happen too often but with my numbers they’ve gone from overrated to underrated in one week!

When evaluating an offence, you may as well just throw any stats against the Falcons defence in the bin because every player will overperform. Jameis Winston was very ordinary against the Bears (145 yds & 2 picks) and this Browns defence is closer to the Bears than Falcons.

Tampa lack balance and with Denzel Ward playing lights out football, Jameis is going to have a tough time moving the ball through the air.

Baker should have a field day and I’m looking forward to it. The forecast looks clear enough also which can be a problem sometimes when getting involved with Buccaneers home games.
