Seahawks (+3) vs Buccaneers (in Munich, Germany)
Sunday morning game for Geno Smith and the ultra-regular Seahawks. The Seattle team continues to perform in front of the handicappers. Tom Brady is a badass, but his presence keeps the price fair.
GIANTS (-5) over Texans
Considering the reasonable price awarded to Big Blue in this game, a suspect home advantage will likely trump the New Yorkers in their home digs. The Texans’ offensive power remains subdued, but don’t expect this to turn into a fight.
BILLS (-3.5) on Vikings:
Buffalo’s recent loss to the Jets is likely to keep the Bills motivated and hungry. The Vikings are improved, but need a bigger push from QB Kirk Cousins before buying full throttle.
DOLPHINS (-3.5) on Browns
Cleveland continues to struggle with the expectation of Deshaun Watson’s late return on Dec. 4. Until then, Miami and Tua Tagovailoa should make the most of it.
Jaguars (+9.5) on CHIEFS
Assuming the Chiefs might be a bit disappointed, given the overall schedule situation. The lesser leans towards Jacksonville, but does not take a strong position, anyway. Like some other more games.
STEELERS (+1.5) on Saints
Gotta love the extra time to prepare that the schedulers have given Pittsburgh here. We’re not thrilled with the current state of the Saints attack, hence our wide outlook.
Broncos (+3) on TITANS
Expect Tennessee to be involved in more than their typical Unders share, with Derrick Henry and the running game carrying more than their normal share. The numbers are close, given the Broncos’ uncertain ground defense.
BEAR (-3) on Lions
All-around offensive wonder Justin Fields continues to outperform his toughest critics for the Bears. The Lions will do their best to keep pace here, but expect Fields to hold his end, as long as he stays healthy.
Cols (+4.5) on RAIDERS
Indianapolis is more than capable of bringing a dose of revenge to its advantage, as Las Vegas continues to deliver more disappointing offensive efforts than expected.
Cowboys (-4.5) on PACKERS
There doesn’t seem to be an unlimited source of good feelings with the Packers, given Aaron Rodgers’ less than unlimited goodwill towards his teammates. Expect good things from Dallas in January, to say the least.
Cardinals (+1.5) on RAMS
That defending champion hangover can be a bear to deal with, and the Rams don’t seem to be immune to that sort of thing. Desert cards have made the most of their opportunities and offer value.
49ERS (-7) on loaders
Much more optimistic about the 49ers’ overall outlook as we head headlong into the final stages of the league’s regular season. The Bolts are in the midst of a bad streak of heavy schedules and forced to relish the presence of Christian McCaffrey.
Commanders (+11) over EAGLES: The longtime division rivals square off, as Philly continues to feel the pressure as the league’s long-undefeated entity. Given their generous lead provided by bettors, this could evolve into a closer game than the pundits believe.
Last week: 8-2-3
