are from the lines. covers.com And home teams are in CAPs.
Cleveland -4.5 over Pittsburgh
If it wasn’t curtains for Mitchell Trubisky with a few extra days to prepare for Kenny Pickett, his days are surely numbered.
Baltimore -2.5 over New England
The Ravens blew him out last week against the Dolphins and he needs to bounce back quickly against a team he has a good history against. Lamar Jackson did everything he could but it was the defense that let him down. The Pats don’t have the weapons to exploit Baltimore the way Miami did last week.
Buffalo -6 over MIAMI
There’s a lot of hype surrounding both of these teams after some impressive starts to the season, but it’s hard to ignore the Bulls’ dominance of Fish over the past few years. Buffalo’s defense will be tested, but must pass. Miami also has a Thursday night trip to Cincinnati to look forward to.
New York Jets +5 over Cincinnati
The Bengals have upgraded the O-line, but it still isn’t helping. Joe Burrow is under constant pressure and the offense hasn’t really gotten its way. The Jets will surely panic early, but Joe Flacco has been a surprisingly steady hand.
Carolina +3 over New Orleans
Jameis Winston looked like a QB playing through four back fractures against the Bucs and sorely missed starting RB Alvin Kamara. The Panthers rolled Christian McCaffrey last week and will look to continue that trend. The Home Dogs have a great ATS record this season, so we’ll bank the points.
Detroit +6 over Minnesota
The Lions’ offense is rolling thanks to an offensive line that has really jelled. While the Vikings should come out on top Monday night somehow — especially at home — Detroit has shown the ability to keep things close and cover under Dan Campbell.
Kansas City -6.5 over Indianapolis
If the Chiefs have had a coach in recent years, it’s Gus Bradley — and guess who Indy’s defensive coordinator is? KC remains a September powerhouse while the Colts have struggled out of the gate. It can be ugly.
LAS VEGAS -2 over TENNESSEE
Derrick Henry is finally starting to show the chops of being a workhorse RB and without him racking up yards on the ground, the Titans offense cannot thrive. Losing Taylor Lewan won’t help either, and the defense will have trouble containing DeVante Adams.
Philadelphia -6.5 over Washington
Is Carson Wentz back to his old form from his Philly days, when he was an MVP candidate? Probably not and it hasn’t really been tested. The Eagles’ offense can take over this game and it’s almost certain that their fans can take advantage of Washington’s home field.
Houston +2.5 over Chicago
Two bad teams meet here, both in the midst of a rebuild. There are some bright spots on both sides, but Texas has done well against some playoff contenders.
Chargers -7 at Jacksonville
The upstart Jags have surprised many so far this season – it certainly helps to have a real adult in charge. But there are plenty of upsides for the loaded Chargers, including the extra rest they got after playing last Thursday.
GREEN BAY +1 at TAMPA BAY
The Bucs are sore at WR and losing Mike Evans to suspension doesn’t help. They will have to run the ball against a good Packers defense, no easy task. It won’t be easy for Aaron Rodgers and Co. either, but we’ll back it up here.
Atlanta +1 over Seattle
The Falcons are out of the West after a tough game against the Rams and now face a Seahawks team that has already won their Super Bowl. The Seahawks struggled mightily against the 49ers while the Falcons certainly look like a feisty dog.
ARIZONA +3.5 over LA Rams
Did the Cards find their way against the Raiders last weekend? The Rams were blown out in the opener and then nearly made it to the Falcons. With such unstable teams, taking on a domestic dog seems like the safer option.
San Francisco +1.5 over Denver
The Broncos have been a disaster in game management under Nathaniel Hackett and Russell Wilson isn’t exactly lighting it up either. While the old mile-high advantage has to be considered, the Niners defense should be able to limit the Broncos run game led by Javonte Williams.
Dallas +1 over the New York Giants.
The Cowboys defense looks like it hasn’t fallen off from last season, though the offense is clearly a concern. But in a matchup between Cooper Rush and Daniel Jones, is there really much to take the hosts here?
Last week: 7-9
This season: 15-17
