Sky’s Bets: A Pick for Every Game

Atlanta Falcons (+4) @ Carolina Panthers (-4) O/U 49.5

My Pick: Atlanta (+4) U 49.5

Why not ride momentum? Carolina is a much better team than the Falcons everyone knows that, and Kyle Allen surprisingly has handled being the new face of the franchise really well. BUT, Atlanta is coming off a huge upset victory in New Orleans, so why wouldn’t I take them to cover in Carolina? 

My Score Prediction: Atlanta 21 Carolina 23

Buffalo Bills (-6.5) @ Miami Dolphins (+6.5) O/U

My Pick: Buffalo (-6.5) U 40.5

Don’t look now, but Miami comes into this game riding a two game win streak and have set the stage to upset Buffalo. However, I’m a firm believer in big time players making big plays in big moments. That ladies and gentlemen, will be Josh Allen this weekend. After coughing one up to Cleveland over the weekend, the Bills are still sitting pretty at 6-3, but by no means do they have a light schedule ahead. Expect the Bills to bring their A-game on both sides of the ball and get a crucial win, solidifying their playoff spot. 

My Score Prediction: Buffalo 24 Miami 13

Dallas Cowboys (-6.5) @ Detroit Lions (+6.5) O/U 46 ½

My Pick: Dallas -6.5 U 46 ½

Dallas let one slip away against Minnesota, which leaves them tied with Philadelphia at 5-4, as they are the only two teams in their division still in the playoff hunt . Dallas will face a Detroit team engineered by Jeff Driskel and Dallas has won three straight against Detroit coming into this matchup. Detroit’s run defense has been poor, setting the stage for Zeke to bounce back really well. 

My Score Prediction: Dallas 27 Detroit 13

Denver Broncos (+10.5) @ Minnesota Vikings (-10.5) O/U 40.5

My Pick: Denver (+10.5) O 40.5

Minnesota can solidify a .500 season or better with a win over Denver this week, but 10 and a half points is a lot to cover. Brandon Allen will receive his second career start and so far he’s proven to be an effective game manager, so I don’t expect Denver to just roll over. 

My Score Prediction: Denver 17 Minnesota 26

Houston Texans (+4.5) @ Baltimore Ravens (-4.5) O/U 51.5

My Pick: Houston Texans (+4.5) O 51.5

Is it crazy to think the Texans have one in them? Watson and the Texans have all of the weapons available to upset Baltimore and I’m predicting this one to come down to come which quarterback makes the biggest play. The higher percentage of big plays lays with Watson and the Texans due to the offensive weapons that have compared to the Ravens. My money is on a shootout with Houston receiving the edge. 

My Score Prediction: Houston 33 Baltimore 30

Jacksonville Jaguars (+2.5) @ Indianapolis Colts (-2.5) O/U 43.5 

My Pick: Jacksonville (+2.5)

The return of both Nick Foles and Jacoby Brissett makes for an intriguing matchup here, but from watching what Jacksonville’s receivers have been able to do with Minshew under center, it makes me wonder if it’s that time of year again Nick Foles reminds all of us what he’s capable of. I like Jacksonville on Sunday.

My Score Prediction: Jacksonville 24 Indianapolis 23

New Orleans Saints (-4.5) @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+4.5) O/U 49.5

My Pick: New Orleans (-4.5) O 49.5

This is the easiest pick of the week for me. Taking the Saints on the over and the spread should be the lock pick of the week. Expect New Orleans to bounce back after being upset by Atlanta and expect Tampa Bay to continue to be the worst pass defense in the league. Michael Thomas and Drew Brees will be the difference makers this Sunday. 

My Score Prediction: New Orleans 38 Tampa Bay 30

New York Jets (+2.5) @ Washington Redskins (-2.5) O/U 38.5 

Pick: New York Jets (+2.5) 

When have we at any point seen the Redskins show us they deserved to be favored in a game? Haskins has looked terrible so far, so there’s really no reason to gamble on them now. Although I expect Haskins to have a favorable matchup against the Jets defense, it’s the Jets offense that I expect to make the biggest impact on this game. Darnold and Le’Veon Bell should be a complete mismatch for the Redskins defense in this one. 

My Score Prediction: New York 27 Washington 23

Arizona Cardinals (+10.5) @ San Francisco 49ers (-10.5) O/U 44.5

My Pick: Arizona (+10.5) O 44.5

Kyler Murray and Christian Kirk have shown me that they are going to be the guys that put this team on their shoulders and move the football on the offensive side of the ball. As for the 49ers, they look like Super Bowl Contenders everywhere besides their offense. Without Kittle and Sanders, the 49ers posted 9 dropped catches and had just an all around poor performance from their offense. With Kittle not looking good to return and Sanders questionable as well, this offense will catch a much needed break against the second worst pass defense in the league. 

My Score Prediction: Arizona 20 San Francisco 25

Cincinnati Bengals (+11.5) @ Oakland Raiders (-11.5) O/U 48.5

My Pick: Oakland (-11.5) O 48.5

At 5-4 Oakland has a legitimate shot at not only a wild card spot but potentially playing for the division title with Kansas City. This week they have a matchup with the last remaining team without a win in Kansas City and I have to say, this one couldn’t have been more easy of a pick. Gruden’s Raiders have yet to blow the doors off on someone’s defense and I fully expect Gruden to encourage his team to do it so they can solidify themselves as a contender. 

My Score Prediction: Cincinnati 20 Oakland 42

New England Patriots (-3.5) @ Philadelphia Eagles (+3.5) O/U 45

MyPick: NE (-3.5)

This one is what I call a trap game. Vegas creates these “trap” games where you’ll run the risk of picking the correct team but not the correct spread. In this scenario, Vegas forgot this is the Patriots just off of a bye. Expect New England to come in and win the game from the opening snap. 

My Score Prediction: New England 30 Philadelphia 17

Chicago Bears (+6.5) @ Los Angeles Rams (-6.5) O/U 40

My Pick: Los Angeles Rams (-6.5)

The Bears managed to make things interesting with a Matthew Staffordless Lions team last week, meanwhile it’s do or die for Sean McVay and the Rams. Expect the Rams defense to start their mid-season groove this week against a vulnerable Bears offense en route to a victory. 

My Score Prediction: Los Angeles 27 Chicago 13

Kansas City Chiefs (-4) @ Los Angeles Chargers (+4) O/U 52.5

My Pick: Kansas City (-4) U 52.5

The Chiefs are coming off two straight losses and find themselves with the Raiders breathing down their necks for the division lead. A road win in LA is crucial this weekend, and what’s even better is LA continues to look lost every time they take the field. Mahomes is back and healthy, and his efficiency will set the pace for the game. 

My Score Prediction: Kansas City 31 Los Angeles 17
