Sunday 5pm: Titans @ Colts – Titans money line & AJ Brown anytime TD

TV: Sky Sports NFL

The early game on Sky this Sunday is a pivotal AFC South clash. Both teams arrive in tremendous form and both possess one of the best running backs in the NFL in their backfield. But despite all of this, I think the traders have got this wrong pricing the Colts up as favourites.

The Colts have won three out of their last four, but they have not beaten any team as good as the Titans yet. And while the Colts will try and ride Jonathan Taylor to victory again, the Titans have their answer in Derrick Henry, who has been unstoppable lately.

The Titans sit top of the division at 5-2 and with recent victories over Buffalo and Kansas City, I struggle to see why they are underdogs. Backing the Titans in the money line is the way to go. Henry and Taylor will be long odds on in the anytime TD scorer markets, so the value will be with Tennessee WR, AJ Brown. Brown has soaked up 15 receptions in the last two games and is the main beneficiary when teams set out to stop Henry.

Sunday 8:06pm: Patriots @ Chargers – Chargers -4.5 & Keenan Allen anytime TD

TV: Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports NFL

The Patriots make the long trip west buoyed by an emphatic victory over the hapless Jets. And while Bill Belichick’s team have put themselves in a good position in the division, it must be said that their three victories have come against the Jets, twice, and the equally bad Houston Texans.

Keenan Allen Los Angeles Chargers

The LA Chargers and Justin Herbert also find themselves one game out of first in their division, and all the teams in the AFC West will really think they’ve got a chance this year with the Chiefs faltering. The bye week came at a good time for the Chargers as they received a mauling by the Ravens in week 6.

They will have had time to regroup, and with the form they showed previously they should be capable of covering a -4.5 line at home. Keenan Allen has only scored one TD all season, but he averages almost 10 targets a game, it’s only a matter of time before he starts converting these targets into TDs.

Monday 12.21am: Cowboys @ Vikings – Total points over 55 & Justin Jefferson anytime TD

TV: Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports NFL

The late game on Sunday night promises to be a cracker, and with both Minnesota and Dallas coming off a bye week this should develop into a shootout. Dak Prescott has been outstanding this season and he has the Dallas offense purring, putting up 41, 36, 44 and 35 points in their last four games.

The Dallas ground game is much improved this season since Tony Pollard started to share the rock with Ezekiel Elliott. This has really opened things up for the air attack and Prescott has already thrown 16 TDs this season. On the other side, Kirk Cousins has passed for 13 TDs so far and helped the Vikings put up their highest total of the season, 34 points, against Carolina before the bye week. All this means we should see Over 55 Total Points.

Dalvin Cook is also back to full fitness and the Vikings are primed to put up a big total. In the TD markets, Justin Jefferson has quickly developed into one of the premier WRs in the league. In his last game he was targeted a whopping 14 times, he should be backed to find the endzone in this game.
