Last Week: 7-8-1, Locks 1-3-1
Season 36-42-2, Locks 10-14-1
Miami -3.5 @ Jacksonville - Incredibly Urban Meyer did not win the dead pool for first coaching change of the season. But he might as well stay in London and check out the pub scene should the Jaguars drop to 0-6. Detroit +3.5 v. Cincinnati - An instance where the home dog looks too good, as the Lions should have had a win or two on their ledger by now. That said, the same could be said about the Bengals last week. Could be a sneaky good game. LA Chargers +3 @ Baltimore - The Chargers cooled off the Browns last week and now head out to the East Coast where they seem to do their best work. I do not look for Lamar Jackson to pull a rabbit out of his hat this week.
Cleveland -2.5 v. Arizona - Speaking of the Browns, look for them to rebound - the Cardinals have a case for currently being the NFL's best, but are overdue for a hiccup. Denver -3.5 v. Las Vegas - Ignoring the headlines of recent days this line looks about right. Two teams that started 3-0 who have lost the past two weeks. Both teams look at this game to prove themselves as contenders and not pretenders. But I don't see the narrative of the Raiders rallying this week. What is said in 10-year old emails goes far beyond Las Vegas.
