Broncos +3 vs Bengals
The Denver defense has been dominant so far despite playing two games at home. Traveling to Cincinnati Sunday will be the Broncos first away game this season. Usually west coast teams struggle when they go east to play at a 1 PM game in a different time zone. The Bengals have been competitive so far this season winning a nail biter against the Jets in week one then losing a close game to the Steelers last week. Andy Dalton is dinged up and I think that means trouble for Cincinnati with Von Miller coming to town. DeMarcus Ware is out but I still think Denver wins a close one.
Broncos +3 is the play.
Browns +10 vs Miami
Miami is 0-2 so far this season but gave the Patriots a scare last week when they came roaring back in the 2nd half despite being down three touchdowns. In week one the Dolphins almost beat Seattle on the road but have still not figured out a way to put it together and get a win.
The Browns are without RG3 or Josh McCown and will be starting USC rookie QB Cody Kessler in Miami. Kessler was thrust into the starting lineup after the #1 and #2 QBs went down early in the season. Ten points is a lot to give up in the NFL even though a rookie QB is starting. The Browns were competitive against a tough Ravens team last week and I think this game could be close going into the 4th quarter. I expect Isiah Crowell to pound the ball for the Browns and keep this one close.
Miami wins but Browns keep it close. Cleveland +10 is the play.
Detroit +7 vs Packers
The Packers will probably win the NFC North but they struggled against the Jags in week one and lost a close one to the Vikings last week. Aaron Rodgers will likely light up the Lions secondary but I think the Lions offense is potent enough to keep up with the Packers.
Green Bay wins but 7 points is too much to give up. Lions +7 is the play.
49ers +10 vs Seattle
The 49ers gave the Panthers everything they wanted last week in Charlotte and would’ve covered the 14 point line if Cam Newton hadn’t scored a garbage TD in the closing minutes of the 4th quarter. Seattle has struggled to score without Marshawn Lynch this season and I think ten points it too much to give up considering that this isn’t the same Niners team as last year. Chip Kelly has the offense clicking and I think with the Seahawks troubles on offense the 49ers can keep it close.
San Fransisco +10 is the play.
Bears +7 vs Dallas
After Chicago lost to the Eagles last week everyone is jumping off the Bears bandwagon. Brian Hoyer is replacing Jay Cutler who is out this week at QB. I think the public is all over Dallas due to the Bears bad start but the Cowboys haven’t been lighting up on offense under rookie Dak Prescott. I think Dallas will win but trusting a rookie QB and rookie starting RB to put up a bunch of points is unfair. The Cowboys coaching staff still have the training wheels on Prescott and I expect the Bears to keep it close.
Chicago +7 is the play.
