I ended up putting forth a winning card with my rabid dog selections last week with the Giants proving to be the lone defeat. New York’s got much to work on over the course of its bye week. For the second time in as many games, the Broncos managed to put 23 points on the board against the Chiefs. Only this time, it was enough to allow all that backed Denver to cash tickets.

Green Bay proved to be one of the easier ticket cashes of the week. It got hairy there for a moment, but ultimately, the line was simply just overinflated. Had Gurley actually sauntered into the end zone, we still would’ve gotten in the money.

Underdogs went 6-8 ATS last week, and I love the way the slate sets up for dog players in Week 9!




Detroit Lions +5 @ Vikings

Something’s clearly not jiving with the Vikings through the first eight weeks of the season, and it has everything to do with their line play. The offensive line has been unable to open up holes for the ground attack, while the D-Line has often disappeared applying pressure on opposing quarterbacks; much like last week when they got to Brees a total of zero times.

Detroit lines up a solid front wall that’s only conceded 13 total sacks, and has the secondary to frustrate Minnesota’s passing attack should it still be unable to run the ball against one of the worst run defenses in the league. The Lions have won each of their last two visits to the Twins Cities, and I once again foresee them giving the Vikings all they could ask for and more in this one.


Cleveland Browns +9 vs. KC Chiefs

The Browns will be working with a clean slate on Sunday with Hue Jackson finally dismissed after stinking it up over the course of his tenure. Todd Haley no longer calling plays should take the shackles of off Baker Mayfield and allow him to utilize his strengths that made him the No. 1 pick in the draft. KC’s defense has been playing better in recent weeks, but I got a feeling they have their hands full containing a Browns revitalized offensive attack.

The betting public is once again throwing money on the Chiefs like they read Biff’s Sports Almanac and know the final score. I’ll fade that action with a Cleveland side that’s won and played to a tie the two times it went off the board home dogged to date.

Atlanta Falcons +2 @ Redskins

The Redskins are going to need to put some points on the board to outlast a rested Atlanta team on Sunday, and I’m not sold Alex Smith and company will be able to do it enough to come through like a majority of the NJ sports betting public expects. The last time Washington went up against a potent passing attack, it was destroyed 43-19 by the Saints on Monday Night Football.

I don’t foresee this one playing out to such a one-sided decision, but it wouldn’t shock me in the least if the rejuvenated Falcons soared to a double-digit win in hostile territory. Washington’s an enormous leg in a number of public money line parlays this week that will have many crying in their beer after they fail to win the game.


Pittsburgh Steelers +3 @ Ravens

REVENGE! The Ravens went into Heinz Field and embarrassed the Steelers back in Week 4 by shutting them out in the second half en route to logging the decisive 26-14 outright win and cover. That’s something Mike Tomlin’s crew won’t have soon forgotten. Since then, Baltimore’s managed one win through four tries while the Steelers have won and covered three straight.

Though Pittsburgh has dropped four of its last five visits to M&T Bank Stadium, it’s playing the better overall ball right now and is the better overall team in my opinion. Gimme the points!


Tampa Bay Buccaneers +7 @ Panthers

Fitzmagic is once again a thing, and NFL bettors are better off for it! This guy has revitalized his career chucking bombs down the field within Todd Monken’s aerial attack, and I’m expecting another solid showing this weekend against Carolina. The Panthers routinely have had their hands full with the Bucs just about every time they pay a visit to Bank of America Stadium.

Of the last four times, Tampa Bay stands 1-3 SU but a money making 3-1 ATS losing the two competitive matchups by an average of just 2.5 points per game. I fully expect them to test what’s been a shaky at best Panthers secondary and stick in this one all the way through. Carolina best not overlook them for Thursday’s throw down in the Steel City!


Green Bay Packers +5 @ Patriots

With the Bears likely winning in Buffalo and the Lions and Vikings going at one another earlier in the day, I fully expect the Packers to take the field for the Sunday nighter with the Patriots all business. Aaron Rodgers just had Ty Montgomery sent to Baltimore after he prevented him from possibly tallying another game winning drive against the Rams. Green Bay’s defense looked to have flipped the switch last week in Los Angeles, and I fully expect it to carry the momentum over from that performance into this showdown with Tom Brady.

Like last week, this is going to be one heck of a game to live bet. If either of these teams gets out to a double-digit lead, don’t hesitate taking the points with the losing team on the readjusted in-game mobile betting spread. When it’s said and done, the game will go down to the wire. For now, we’ll invest in Green Bay and see where it goes from there.
