The Team to Bet

Mike: Detroit Lions +10

Last week the Lions got their first win this season, winning 29-27 over the Minnesota Vikings. Despite being a touchdown underdog at home, the Lions won the game on a last-second score by Amon-Ra St. Brown. While they will be down two of their top offensive weapons in this game, expect Jared Goff and the Lions to keep this game close. The Denver Broncos have been a touchdown or more favorite only once this season, back in Week 3. While they ultimately won 26-0, the Broncos aren’t the same team now as they were a few months ago. Over the past three weeks, the Broncos have a 1-2 record, losing on average by five points per game. Denver will win the game, but Detroit will cover the spread.

Dale: Dallas Cowboys -4.5

Perhaps the biggest division matchup of the weekend, this game could decide who wins the NFC East. A healthy 8-4 record still leaves the Cowboys just two games in front of the Washington Football team with five games to go before the playoffs. Dak Prescott will not have to contend with star defensive end Montez Sweat, who will continue to sit out. Prescott already leads an offense that ranks among the top-five in passing yards and should be able to carve up a soft Washington secondary. Cowboys win by a touchdown or more as they gain their stranglehold on the division.

The Team to Avoid

Mike: New York Jets +5.5

The Jets have been one of the wilder teams this season. They were blown out 26-0 by the Broncos in Week 3, only to win over the Tennessee Titans the following week. However, one thing is unmistakable with the Jets: their run defense is awful. They have given up an average of 133.4 rushing yards and 1.8 rushing touchdowns per game this season. Their 21 rushing touchdowns allowed are the most in the NFL. Not only will Taysom Hill start tomorrow for the New Orleans Saints, but they will get Kamara back after a four-week absence. The Saints’ offense is built around the running game, especially with Hill under center. Not only will the Saints cover the 5.5 spread tomorrow, but they will run wild over the Jets.

Dale: Baltimore Ravens +3

Although the Ravens have won two of their last four games, Lamar Jackson has noticeably struggled. During that span, he threw eight interceptions, four of which came against the Cleveland Browns two weeks ago. Therefore, despite currently holding the top seed in the AFC North, the Ravens are vulnerable. If the Browns are going to beat the Ravens, it will come down to the play of Baker Mayfield rather than that of Nick Chubb. The Ravens’ pass defense has continued to be their weak spot, ranking second to last in yards allowed per game. After losing to the Ravens on the road, expect the Browns to bounce back with a huge division win and cover the spread.
