Last week we went 2-2-1 with our picks. Had we had Detroit +7.5 we would’ve had a winning record but that will change this week. And with a game being played in London all the degenerate gamblers can get up early to bet on the Colts vs Jaguars. Let’s get started with that one.
Colts -2.5 vs Jacksonville in London
Without Andrew Luck last December the Jaguars destroyed the Colts, 51-16 in Jacksonville. I don’t think Chuck Pagano has forgot about that and will look to put it on the Jags. The Colts are only 1-2 on the year but they should be able to put points on the board against the young Jaguars defense that Phillip Rivers torched two weeks ago. Andrew Luck is back and the Colts win by at least 7.
Colts -2.5 is the play.
Buffalo at New England -7.5
Rex Ryan tried to be cute earlier this week and took part of a conference call with Patriots receiver Julian Edelman. Bill Belicheck has owned Ryan over the years and that doesn’t stop this weekend. The Bills may have turned their season around by firing their offensive coordinator and beating the Cardinals at home last week but it doesn’t matter now. Jimmy Garoppolo will likely be back under center in Foxborough and the Patriots roll on to 4-0.
Patriots -7.5 is the play.
Broncos -3 at Tampa Bay
Jameis Winston is struggling and you don’t want to have to play against the Denver defense when you have problems on offense. Two weeks ago the Bucs only managed 7 points on the road against the Cardinals as the Arizona defense had four interceptions off the former #1 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. Trevor Siemian has done well under center for the Broncos despite playing the shadow of Peyton Manning and I think he keeps it going in week 4. Anytime you can get the best defense in the NFL -3 take it.
Denver -3 is the play.
Bears +3 vs Lions
Chicago has no defense, or offense. Until they can show they can stop anyone or score any points I will take anyone who they play, home or on the road. The Lions will still be without Ezekiel Ansah but I don’t think it matters who rushed the QB for Detroit. The Bears can’t move the ball. Detroit wins by two scores.
Lions -3 is the play.
Rams +8 at Arizona
The Cardinals were supposed to be the best team in the NFC West and the Rams were supposed to be the worst. That’s not necessarily what has happened so far early this season. The Rams are in first place in the division and the Cards are in last place. Arizona has suffered both losses on the road and in their only home game blew out Tampa Bay when Jameis Winston turned into a turnover machine. The Rams are built on running the ball and I think will turn this into an ugly low scoring game. I think the Cardinals win at home but the Rams keep it close losing by a field goal or so.
Los Angeles +8 is the play.
Dallas -2 vs 49ers
The Cowboys have done well this year considering they are having to run the offense through 3rd string rookie QB Dak Prescott. Even without Dez Bryant who is always injured Dallas can still control this game up front with their offensive line and running game. The 49ers are a mystery looking great in week 1 against L.A. then falling apart against the Panthers and Seahawks. Dallas has things clicking and they are the better team, even on the road.
Dallas -2 is the play.
