After three weeks, we are down to just two 3-0 NFL teams, the Eagles and Dolphins. And, of course, the Dolphins remained unbeaten because they handed the favorite to win the Super Bowl, the Buffalo Bills, their first loss of the season.
Just another week of the greatest reality show on earth, and we get them every week for the next four months.
Minnesota Vikings (-3) vs. New Orleans Saints
The Vikings and Saints, two Jekyll and Hyde teams, play just down the road from the offices of Dr. Henry Jekyll in London.
We thought the Saints were good, but they just gave the Carolina Panthers their first win of the season. We think the Vikings are good and other than a loss at Philadelphia, they have been.
It’s a national broadcast, but it isn’t in prime time, so we’re going to go with Kirk Cousins and the Vikings offense to cover the field goal spread.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Philadelphia Eagles (-6.5)
The Eagles are blowing teams out, and if this was a month ago, we might think that the 6.5-point spread was an easy cover for Jalen Hurts and the best team in the NFC.
But the Jags have won two straight, including their first road win since 2019, and in each of those wins, they were underdogs.
We’re not going to predict a Jags win, but at almost a touchdown, we like the Jags to cover this NFL spread. Until bookmakers start giving Jacksonville the respect they’ve earned, keep riding them to wins.
Buffalo Bills at Baltimore Ravens (Over 51.5)
The Bills’ offense managed just 17 points last week, but they gained 497 yards. In comparison, when the Ravens gave up 42 points to Miami, they allowed 547 yards. Even against the struggling Patriots offense, Baltimore allowed 447 yards and 26 points.
It’s Josh Allen, at the top of his game, vs. Lamar Jackson, who is at the top of his game, and while the Bills (-3) is a tough call, going OVER 51.5 feels like a really solid NFL play.
Los Angeles Rams at San Francisco 49ers (-2.5)
The 49ers always play the Rams tough, but did you see Jimmy Garoppolo on Sunday against the Broncos? Denver has a very good defense, but you can see why general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan tried to move on from Jimmy G this NFL season.
The Rams have yet to put it together for one complete game, but that game is coming. And if you can get the Rams as underdogs against a team that has failed to break 10 points in two of three NFL games, you do it. Take L.A. and the points.
