Picking a “shocking upset” is delicate work, like trying to disarm a bomb or giving a cat a pill. I’m betting on Cleveland re-emerging as a playoff favorite and weekly force if they’re healthy. Even with Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt out, the key is still Mayfield. Third-string rusher D’Ernest Johnson showed contributor potential in the preseason.
Lines are the best currently available in Las look at more info Vegas on the chosen side. I thought I had escaped what might be the worst beat of the NFL season so far. Expect Las Vegas to get the easy win at home and beat the Eagles by a score of 28-14. With lackluster performances from DeVonta Smith, Quez Watkins, and Miles Sanders, it’s hard to imagine a scenario where Philly’s offense makes a huge impact on this game. Hopefully, Sirianni opts to give Sanders more touches, but the Raiders have a solid defensive unit, one that will be hard to budge.
The team that is 25th in points allowed just happens to be Washington (25.1). Prior to the win over the Giants, the Redskins gave up 72 points in two weeks, 38 to Minnesota and 34 to New Orleans. Luckily, Washington will face its second straight opponent that is struggling offensively. Washington held the Giants to just 84 yards rushing and sacked QB Eli Manning four times. Pittsburgh (9-2) has the league’s leading rusher, Bell, and leading receiver in Antonio Brown . The Steelers are dynamic on offense and if there is a better defense in the league than Baltimore, it’s Pittsburgh’s.
As bad as the Bears were a year ago, the defense was pretty good. Chicago finished seventh in pass defense and ninth in scoring defense . The addition of Mack, the 2016 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, only makes Chicago better.
This is a game that the markets looks to have got just about right and I am happy to stay out from a betting perspective. Carolina had their winning run ended at the hands of the Philadelphia Eagles and this is the type of game they need to be winning in order to return to the NFL Playoffs. The New Orleans Saints have got themselves in the NFL Playoffs mix with three straight wins and they will start this clash as clear favourites. It is tough to back either of these teams with any confidence and this is a game that I will be staying out of.

With Curtis Samuel, Logan Thomas, and Antonio Gibson injured, Washington is dealing with several absences on offense. If they can’t produce against Kansas City, I don’t know how you can trust them to deliver against anyone with their current personnel. This year, Green Bay is allowing the fifth-fewest yards per game, so this is a much more difficult matchup than last week.
