Indianapolis Colts by 14 at the St. Louis Rams
Ok here is the deal. The Rams at 0-6 suck and the Colts at 6-0 look awesome. The Rams’ net points are -115 through 6 weeks. That is an average of almost a 20 point deficit per game. Against a good team like the Colts 14 points should be a joke. Take the Colts to cover and then some.
Pittsburgh Steelers by 5.5 at home over the Minnesota Vikings
In my upset of the week I take the Vikings on the road over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Vikings seem to always find a way to win. They stretch their streak to 7 wins in this one.
New York Jets by 6 at the Oakland Raiders
The wheels look to be coming off in New York the past few weeks with 3 losses in a row but I am still picking them to win over the Raiders. Maybe it is just a vendetta pick because the Raiders ruined my perfect week last week when they decided to show up last week against Eagles. The Jets showed last week that they can still run the ball and that is definitely the weakness of the Raiders defence. I look for the Jets to cover this week with a strong game on the ground.
New Orleans Saints by 6.5 at the Miami Dolphins
The Saints have shown a few times this year that they are dominant even against good teams. This week is no different. Regardless of whether they have trouble with the wildcat or not New Orleans are going to put up too many points for the Dolphins to keep pace. Saints cover.
For my eliminator this week I am going to take the Carolina Panthers over the Buffalo Bills. Since their bye week the Panthers are 2-0 and will continue the streak this week at home against the Bills. The Bills are the league’s worst against the run so DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart should run wild this week.
