The Pick: Colts +6
BJ: “I think there’s a lot of value in the Colts. They will score. Andrew Luck looks like he’s kind of back to being himself, I think the Colts will be able to put up enough points.”
The Pick: Houston PK
BJ: “If we know one thing about the Texans defense, it’s tough to run on them. They’ve got a massive front so Derrick Henry’s going to struggle a little bit.”
The Pick: Cardinals +12.5
Chad: “This to me is the greatest example, in the history of examples, of Week 2 overreaction. … This game should be power rated as Rams by 9. Right now it’s Rams by 12.5.”
The Pick: Giants +3
BJ: “The Giants defense looked really good. So, yeah, I think they go in here and win this thing outright. This line is bizarre to me.”
Seattle Seahawks at Chicago Bears
The Pick: Seahawks +3.5
BJ: “Russel Wilson does one thing really well, maybe better than almost anyone outside of Tom Brady: he keeps you in games. When’s the last time the Seahawks got blown out? It doesn’t happen. He keeps them alive.”
