Straight plays go 2-3 but I didn’t think it would come down to an obvious non PI call in the UNC game to be the difference in a winning or losing day. Check the pic and vid on social media for reference. Back at it today looking to close the week out strong.
Titans (-3) – Buy the half point as a bit of protection but it probably won’t come into play. The Titans proved to us on Tuesday that they are for real again this season after barely practicing for 2 weeks and then smoking the Bills like a fat cigar to improve to 4-0. They will take on the Texans who are just 1-4 on the season. The best part of this matchup for the Titans is that they have one of if not the best running back in the league and the Texans have the #31 ranked run defense allowing 160 yards on the ground per game. This should allow the Titans to control the game and will lead them to their 5th win if the season.
1st Half Line
Ravens Over (13.5) – The Ravens have scored 14 or more points in 4 of their 5 games this season. They have scored 17, 21, 20, 24, & 10 in the first half this season. The Eagles have allowed 29 points per game this season and we expect the Ravens to get off to a quick start today. Over 13.5 by halftime for Baltimore.
Ravens (-3.5) / Colts (-1.5) – The Ravens have rolled against everyone except the Chiefs this season and will be going up against the sorry ass 1-3-1 Eagles today. The Eagles just gave up 38 points to the Steelers last week so look for the Ravens to put up 30+ at a minimum. 30+ points will be difficult for the Wagles to keep up with since they have only averaged 22 ppg and the Ravens have only allowed 15 ppg this season. Ravens ROLL.
Then we have the Colts taking on the 1-3-1 Bengals. The Colts are 2-0 at home and won both of those games by 3+ possessions. The Bengals are 0-2-1 on the road this season. The Colts had a let down on defense last week but they should bounce back this week against the Bengals who only scored 3 points against the Ravens last week. Phillip Rivers threw 2 picks last week and that was the difference in the game. The Colts have established the running game in their wins and they should be able to do that today against the #30 ranked run defense. Colts should cover that -1.5.
Packers (-1) – The Packers come in a perfect 4-0 and they have also had a bye week to prepare for this matchup against Brady and the Bucs. The Pack ranks 1st in the league in points per game (38) and yards per play (6.8). Rodgers has thrown 13 TDs and 0 interceptions this season. The Bucs defense has been good against the run so Rodgers will have to get the passing game going. The Bucs have beat the teams that they should beat but struggled against their top opponents (Bears / Saints). The Packers have proved to be the better team this season and they should be the better team in this game today.
Dodgers () (-140) – They haven’t announced their starting pitcher yet but you know who we’re rolling with. The Dodgers will face Ian Anderson who they could only get 1 hit against in Game 2. However, the thing about Anderson is his control. He has struggled with it all season and he walked 5 guys in Game 2 but the Dodgers couldn’t take advantage of it. 22 years old in a Game 7 to go to the World Series is another interesting storyline to watch in this one. Look for the Dodgers to find a way to get it done, they have the momentum in this series.
