Picks

Indianapolis +140 IND +140

Jacksonville 27 @ Indianapolis 0
10/22
JAC 27 @ IND 0
10/22
LOSS
Sun 10/22

The Jaguars definitely have a better secondary that Indianapolis. But without Leonard Fournette that may be their only advantage. I'll take the Colts, at home, against Blake Bortles. Not just to cover, but to win outright.

Miami -3 MIA -3

N.Y. Jets 28 @ Miami 31
10/22
NYJ 28 @ MIA 31

PUSH
Sun 10/22

This line implies that on a neutral field these two teams are equals. That's just not reality. Add the extra motivation of the Dolphins atoning for the first matchup between these two and I see a blowout coming.

Jacksonville -2.5 JAC -2.5

L.A. Rams 27 @ Jacksonville 17
10/15
LAR 27 @ JAC 17
10/15
LOSS
Sun 10/15

Last week I thought the Rams were overvalued at home against Seattle. But now they're only 2.5 point dogs traveling across the country to face Jacksonville? These are two of the most surprising teams of 2017, but I'll bet on Jacksonville's defense at home against Jared Goff and company.

OVER 44.5 OVER 44.5

Green Bay 10 @ Minnesota 23
10/15
GB 10 @ MIN 23
10/15
LOSS
Sun 10/15

I don't believe the Vikings can shutdown Aaron Rodgers and I'm not sure the Packers secondary can stop anyone right now. Both teams could have trouble running the ball but I don't suspect they'll have any trouble through the air.

Arizona +110 ARI +110

Tampa Bay 33 @ Arizona 38
10/15
TB 33 @ ARI 38
10/15
WIN
Mon 10/9

Wanted to grab this one early this week before everyone realizes they're betting on Jameis Winston, on the road, with Patrick Peterson taking away Mike Evans. This line is too much of an overreaction to the Cardinals playing poorly on the east coast. They win outright.
