Last week: 6-3 Season: 15-20
After a very successful Week 7 outing for the mayor of Lock City, let’s save some words and get back to making money. I will say, however, that I love the overs in most of the games this week. I fully expect an explosion of points, so feel free to tie some additional overs to these picks.
Cleveland at New England (-10)
Although they are easily the toughest opponent to face the Patriots this season, don’t expect the Browns to make any real noise in this one. I love Brady at home, and I especially love the New England defense to suffocate Baker. Also worth noting: Its Freddie Kitchens vs Bill Belichick! What else do you need to hear?
Denver at Indianapolis (-4.5)
The most confusing line of the week. The Colts, coming off of their two biggest wins of the season, are at home to the league laughingstock Broncos and are favored by less than a touchdown? The Colts are hot, and have quietly been pummeling teams in time of possession, and their secondary has looked solid recently. I like Indy in the Peyton Manning Bowl.
Philadelphia (+2) at Buffalo
While I love betting on the Bills’ tenacious D, I am addicted to the Eagles. I think this is a kitchen sink game for them, and I don’t believe their defensive woes will show against a slow Bills team. Expect the Birds to save their season Sunday.
Carolina at San Francisco (over 41.5)
New York Jets at Jacksonville (over 40)
Points, Points, Points!
