Game: BAL@SEA (currently at SEA -3.5)

TREND: BAL after two wins in a row
  • ATS: 8-20-1 (29%) last 8 years
 

The Baltimore Ravens have cooled off since that electric start to the year and have only played one team currently with a winning record. That game came against the Kansas City Chiefs, ending in a loss, but a backdoor cover. Baltimore has been known throughout the years to have a dominant defense and an offense just good enough to keep them relevant. 

That’s been the opposite this year with their defense being average and the offense leading the league in yards per game. Seattle comes into this game with the top MVP candidate in Russell Wilson and a 5-1 record. Five of their six games have been within one possession, including their only loss to New Orleans. Seattle is at home, they have a better defense, and in 2019, Russell Wilson is light years ahead of a future star in Lamar Jackson.   

Game: HOU@IND (currently at IND -1)

TREND: HOU in division road games:
  • ATS: 10-5-1 (66%) in the last 16 games
 

The Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts come into this game with the AFC South up for grabs. Frank Reich has done a fantastic job since finding out the shocking news of his franchise quarterback all of a sudden retiring as they sit 3-2 coming off a bye week. This game practically sits at a pick ’em, which makes the positional matchups very intriguing in a game that the winner will also win the spread. 

Houston’s defense ranks in the top half of the league in sacks (T-12th) and passing yards allowed per game (9th), giving first-year starter Jacoby Brissett a challenging opponent none the less. Deshaun Watson is having an MVP caliber season in just his third year and won’t look to slow down this week. Indianapolis does have the advantage in the fact that they’re coming off the bye making them almost completely healthy going into Sunday. Houston simply has too many weapons and should be able to ultimately win this game, even if it comes down to a game winning drive by Watson and Co

Game: NE@NYJ (currently at NE -10)

TREND: NE as double digit favorites

  • ATS: 17-6-0 (74%) last 5 years
 

The New York Jets looked GOOD last week. Or maybe the Cowboys just looked bad? Regardless, it doesn’t matter. The New England Patriots are on a roll this year and the New York Jets aren’t likely to stop them in their tracks. New England still reps the best defense in the league this year in total points and yards allowed, and still have a guy named Tom Brady leading the offense. While the Jets’ big win last week might lead the public to think otherwise, New England should put this away early and hold up enough to cover the spread.

Game: NO@CHI (currently at CHI -3)

TREND: NO in October

  • ATS: 18-2-1 (90%) last 6 years
 

There’s an argument out there that October is the most important month during the football season. The rust is knocked off, teams are getting figured out and at the same time other teams are starting to gain major steam. Sean Payton knows the importance of October and always makes sure to have his team ready to build momentum and take a leap in the conference going into the final stretch of the season before playoffs hit. 

Granted, Drew Brees has been the signal caller these past 6 years, but Teddy Bridgewater has looked serviceable since taking over. With a 7-2 TD-INT ratio and a 98.4 QBR, Bridgewater has lived up to the billing of the highest paid backup QB in the NFL. Payton is a creative enough coach to get his dynamic duo (Alvin Kamara & Michael Thomas) in open space for them to make a play. Chicago is suspect on offense and now have Chase Daniel leading the way. The Saints have continued to win and this spread is just another indication of them not getting the full respect that they deserve.
