LA Chargers -6.5 | TEN Titans  +6.5
 

 

Tip – The Titans were abysmal a week ago, getting shut out and surrendering the second most sacks in NFL history. While crazy things always seem to occur in those early morning London games, Marcus Mariota should still prepare to take a similar beating this week. The Bolts have one of the most complete teams in the NFL, and their defense is coming off a 5 sacks and 2 interception outing last week.

CHI Bears +3.5 | NE Patriots -3.5
 

 

Tip – New England’s offense is certainly back, averaging 39.7 ppg over their last three games. Chicago on the other hand, is coming off a 31-28 loss to Miami. Still, Chicago is a young and talented team. If Khalil Mack can play through an ankle injury, Chicago’s defense should impose some issues for Tom Brady, who has tossed 6 interceptions on the season. 

 

NY Jets (+3) at MIN Vikings (-3)

NY Jets +3 | Min Vikings -3
 

 

Tip – Since being embarrassed at the hands of the Buffalo Bills, the Vikings nearly defeated the undefeated Rams, and won back-to-back games, including a victory over the defending champs. While the Jets have put up at least 34 points in two straight games, the Vikings defense has surrendered only 17 ppg over that same time frame. Expect Sam Darnold to have a few rookie mistakes come Sunday.

PHI Eagles -4.5 |  CAR Panthers +4.5
 

 

Tip – The Panthers may be 3-2, but they have been in every game this season. Philly is starting to look more and more like the Super Bowl team from a year ago. Still, giving 4.5 points to a Carolina team that possesses the league’s 4th ranked rush offense may be too much for Philly to overcome. Expect Carolina to control the pace of the game and keep the ball out of Wentz’s hands.

 

BAL Ravens (-2.5) at NO Saints (+2.5)

BAL Ravens -2.5| NO Saints +2.5
 

 

Tip – The league’s top offense, coming off a 43 point outing, faces off against the leagues top defense, coming off a franchise best 11 sacks. With that being said, you can only hope to contain the firepower of New Orleans’ offense. Joe Flacco has only thrown over 300 yards twice this season, and will likely be unable to keep pace with Drew Brees. Take the points, and the home field advantage.

Tip – Kansas City, everyone’s new “favorite” team, is coming off their first loss of the season. They are who we thought they were, elite offensively, but defensively, trash. The combo of AJ Green and Tyler Boyd should cause matchup issues for a Kansas City secondary that has given up the most passing yards in the league. Six points, home field, and facing off against the leagues worst defense, makes Cincinnati an easy bet.
