Last week my picks went 4-1 to move my record to 5-5 for the season. This week I’m a bit rushed to write this blog as I’ve barely been home in the last week, but I want to be clear that I’m still extremely confident in these picks.
6 Point Teaser – Cardinals -1.5, Bills -1.5
Bills recovered nicely against the Dolphins last week and should have no problem winning at home against Washington. My Jaguars have looked terrible so far this season and I don’t expect that to change against a good Cardinals team.
Following the choke job loss against the Ravens, the Chiefs will show up ready for this matchup at home. Chargers are an improving team and have found their dude at QB, but it won’t be nearly enough to keep up with the Chiefs offense.
This line doesn’t make sense to me. I’m not going to rule out that maybe I’m dumb but I think this line should be closer to -7. Raiders have looked awesome so far this season and let’s just say the Dolphins haven’t. (Last week the Cardinals were my most confident pick and that ended up being my 1 loss)
6 Point Teaser – Vikings +8, SEA/MIN Over 49
Interesting matchup with 2 teams that could both easily be 2-0. I think this game will be very close and could easily come down to another missed FG by a Vikings kicker. We’ll be seeing plenty of offense and although I’m staying far away from the spread of +2, the Vikings should be able to cover a full TD at home.
6 Point Teaser – Rams +7.5, Under 61.5
I’m taking the Rams to win in my pick’em league and I love getting a full TD with the teaser. I won’t be surprised if I regret taking the under but my first instinct is that both defenses are going to show up ready to play. I’m second guessing myself as I type this but I’m sticking with it.
