The Pick: Patriots -6.5
BJ: “In their last five trips to Foxborough the Dolphins have lost by an average of 16 points.”
The Pick: Giants +3.5
Chad: “The Giants are clearly the right side here, but I will never bet them again … In the first half against Houston last week the difference in the Giants offensive line was noticeable. They gave Eli Manning extra time, and he completed passes with ease. It was one of the most effective games he’s ever had in his career.”
The Pick: Bengals +5
BJ: “Matt Ryan was excellent last week when he had a clean pocket; when he had pressure he was awful. And this Bengals defense can get pressure.”
The Pick: Colts -1
BJ: “I’ve watched this team [Houston] play three weeks, and [it’s] not that good … And at one? We’re just picking the Colts to take this game.”
Denver Broncos vs. Kansas City Chiefs
The Pick: Broncos +5
Chad: “These are your options right now with the Kansas City Chiefs. You know that bookmakers are inflating the line for the Chiefs. If you’re going to play a Chiefs game, you have to play the other side because that is where the value is going to be.”
