Sky have three excellent games this week and we’ve put together our best Bet Builders for each of them! There will be plenty of Super Bowl pointers on show as some big guns clash.

 

Chargers @ Chiefs – Over 54.5 points, Chargers +6.5, T Kelce TD scorer & J Herbert Over 295.5 passing yards

These two teams both field outstanding offences with elite QBs. Pat Mahomes needs no introduction, and with the arsenal of weapons at his disposal, the Chiefs are always going to run up points. The line is currently 54.5 points and I can see there being more than eight TDs in this game, so overs is the way to go.

The Chargers were unlucky last week and while I think the Chiefs should have enough at home to win, the Chargers getting a 6.5 point start on the handicap is too big, I expect the Chargers to hang with the Chiefs and that start might be too generous.

 

Travis Kelce has looked his usual, unstoppable self this season, he has scored TDs in both of his games so far and I expect that trend to continue. Justin Herbert was unlucky against the Cowboys last week but quietly put up 338 passing yards, to go with the 337 he put up in week one. The Kansas City secondary will hold no fears for the impressive second-year QB and he should be able to go over the 295.5 line.

Bucs @ Rams – Rams to win, total points under 55.5 & C Godwin TD scorer

Two unbeaten teams clash in what could be a prelude to the NFC championship game. Tom Brady has never had a perfect season, and it’s worth taking the Rams here to ensure that record continues.

The Rams have arguably the best D in the NFL and they should make Brady’s day as uncomfortable as possible. The Rams have a new QB in Matt Stafford, and he can put enough points up on Tampa Bay’s suspect secondary to claim victory.

Both teams have excellent D-lines so the points total of 55.5 looks on the high side. Mike Evans has emerged as Tom Brady’s favourite receiver this season, but he gets the Jalen Ramsey treatment so the value in the anytime TD markets is with Tampa Bay WR Chris Godwin.

Packers @ 49ers – Packers to win, Total Points over 50.5, A Rodgers over 276.5 Passing yards & G Kittle TD scorer

Another heavyweight clash in the NFC, and the value could be with the Packers, who were awful in their opening game against the Saints but looked back to their best in the second half against the Lions on Monday night football.

The 49ers were one of the teams rumoured to be trading for Aaron Rodgers this offseason and it would be no surprise to see the reigning MVP return to California and beat a team he has an excellent record against. The ‘Niners have had no problems putting up points so far and I expect that to continue, and I will be backing over 50.5 points total accordingly.

 

Rodgers was back to his surgical best last week, and with Davante Adams primed to erupt, back Rodgers to go over the 276.5 passing yards. George Kittle hasn’t scored a TD yet this season, but he is one of the elite players at his position and he can get his first TD of the new campaign against a Packers D that has had difficulty covering tight ends.

This 4-leg BET BUILDER on Packers @ 49ers will payout at around 15/1
