Last weekend’s 3-5 was demoralizing. We started out 3-1 and it seemed like we were well on our way to a great day. Then we proceeded to lose our last four. And Detroit had a chance to backdoor cover, but came up short. Absolutely heartbreaking. But we’re bouncing back this weekend. I love the board this weekend and I have eight winners to get us back where we want to be. Let’s ride.
Arizona Cardinals -8 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
The Cardinals travel to Duvall County for this Week 3 matchup against the Jags. The Meyer/Lawrence era is off to a bit of a rocky start and I don’t see that changing here. Their defense got picked apart by Tyrod Taylor and the Texans in week one so I expect Kyler Murray and Co. to be able to move the ball at will in this one. Arizona has scored 72 points in two games this season and they should be able to add to that impressive total here. Jacksonville has given up at least three touchdowns in their last 10 games, all losses by the way. The Cards have also dominated teams in the AFC South, having won eight of their last nine against that division. We’re keeping it simple here. Arizona is very good, and Jacksonville is very bad. Back the Cardinals with confidence.
Chicago Bears vs. Cleveland Browns Under 44.5
This total seems a little high given the QB situation with both teams. Justin Fields is making his first start for Chicago and Baker will be playing banged up for Cleveland. Not to mention the Browns will be without Jarvis Landry for three weeks with an MCL injury. Odell will be making his season debut in this one, but it might take him some time to get going against a solid Chicago Defense. Da Bears, who are already quite conservitive with their offense, will probably keep most explosive plays out of their playbook Sunday while they try to let Fields get his feet wet. The total has also gone under in six of Chicago’s last seven games against the AFC. Both of these teams have injuries on offense and solid defenses. A perfect recipe for betting the under.
Denver Broncos -10.5 vs. New York Jets
This is another big spread but the Broncos are in a great spot here to go 3-0. They started out the season with back-to-back road games so Mile High, an already difficult place to play, will be rocking on Sunday afternoon. Denver usually plays very well against New York. They are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 meetings. The Jets also struggle away from the Meadowlands, only covering twice in their last nine road games. Denver also likes to beat up on bad teams. They are 3-0 ATS in their last three games against a team with a record below .500. Also, Teddy Bridgewater is a covering machine. He is 37-13-3 ATS in his career. Zach Wilson is in for another rough outing on the road against one of the best defenses in the league. This is a big number, but I’m confident in Denver to run away with this one.
New York Giants -3 vs. Atlanta Falcons Cincinnati Bengals +3 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers Miami Dolphins vs. Las Vegas Raiders Over 44 Green Bay Packers +3 vs. San Francisco 49ers Dallas Cowboys -3.5 vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Get ready for a great weekend, fellow degenerates. We’re getting back to our winning ways.
