Tip-  The Browns are a good football team, and while their record may not portray it at the moment, they likely have more talent than the Broncos. Baker Mayfield gives Cleveland a chance to win any game, while Case Keenum, Denver’s signal caller tries his best to not lose a game. The Broncos, already without Emmanuel Sanders, will also be without Courtland Sutton come Saturday, leaving very little for Cleveland to fear out wide. Philip Lindsay had his worst game as a pro last week, and may not fair much better this week, as the box will be stuffed with 7+ men every play.

MIA Dolphins (+7.5) at MIN Vikings (-7.5)

Tip – Miami, with some help, could simultaneously insert themselves into the AFC’s 6th seed, while removing the Vikings from the NFC’s 6th seed, with a win in Minnesota on Sunday. Putting the “Miami Miracle” play aside, the ‘Phins went toe-to-toe with the Patriots a week ago. Ryan Tannehill has thrown eight touchdowns to just one interception in his three games since returning from injury. Minnesota has scored just 17 points over their past two games.

Tip – Indianapolis has a great chance at winning this game, but 3.5 points is too much to give to quite possibly the league’s hottest team. Zeke Elliott has averaged over 171 yards from scrimmage in Dallas’ five game win streak, while Amari Cooper has a whopping 473 yards receiving over his last three games. Indianapolis’ run game has struggled in recent weeks, and will likely continue this trend vs. Dallas’ 3rd ranked rush defense.

GB Packers (+5.5) at CHI Bears (-5.5)

Tip – The Bears got a huge win on national TV last Sunday night. Yet, hours before that, Green Bay quietly played their best game of the season. The Packers look to have new life since the firing of Mike McCarthy, and through three quarters last week they dominated the Falcons to the tune of 34-7. Aaron Rodgers broke Chicago fan’s hearts in week one, and he will do just the same to anyone who bets against him this week.

TB Buccaneers (+7.5) at BAL Ravens (-7.5)

Tip – This is a huge trap game for Baltimore. The Ravens, coming off a gut wrenching loss in the final seconds to the Chiefs a week ago, get a Tampa team this week that has gone 2-1 since Jameis Winston’s reinsertion into the starting lineup. Winston has tossed six touchdowns to just one interception over that span. While the Bucs seemed to finally solidify their QB position, the Ravens are another story. Lamar Jackson has been named the starter for this week, but Coach Harbaugh has already discussed giving Joe Flacco snaps as well, a recipe for disaster.

TEN Titans (+0.5) at NY Giants (-0.5)

Tip – This is an extremely tight line that entails you to simply take a team outright. In that case I’ll take the G-Men at home, who, over the last month, have reinvented themselves. The Giants have scored over 30 points in three of their past four games. The play of the back seven is what will put the Giants over this week. New York has registered nine interceptions during their 3-1 run.
