>Season Total 36-17-2
>Upset Alert 7-4

Miami Dolphins +3.5 at New York Jets

Both of these teams have been bad especially as of late. The New York Jets have only covered 2 of their last 8 games. The defense can be had and Darrelle Revis hasn’t been the stud we expected and the secondary has been struggling as a whole. The last three weeks the Jets have allowed the 8th most passing yards and 4th most passing touchdowns. The Miami Dolphins have been far from world beaters but they can throw the ball. They are top 15 in passing yards the past three weeks.The Jets defense will be without Revis this week only benefitting the Dolphins offense.  This should be a field goal game and the Dolphins are getting an extra half point. Take the Dolphins and enjoy betting against Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Washington Redskins +3 vs New York Giants

Two weeks ago the Washington Redskins were highly impressive in a route of the New Orleans Saints. A week later they were getting dominated on the road by the Carolina Panthers. Now Washington returns home and gets to face another defense that has tremendous issues stopping the pass. The Giants are allowing the most passing yards per game in the NFL. Kirk Cousins and company should be able to put up points. The Giants are coming into this game off the bye week and should put up a fight. A home team catching a field goal is something I always like especially when both teams are so even.

Minnesota Vikings +1 at Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons have been struggling down the stretch and have failed to cover 6 straight including three at home. They will be without Devonta Freeman this week after he left last week’s game with a concussion. The Minnesota Vikings come into this game after a tough loss against the Green Bay Packers. They had covered their last 8 games prior to that. I expect Adrian Peterson and company to get back on track this week even on the road.

Baltimore Ravens +3 at Cleveland Browns

The Ravens will be without Joe Flacco and Justin Forsett Sunday. Adding to the list of players they have lost this season. However they will Matt Schaub under center who has experience and has won games in the NFL. They will also have Javorius Allen toting the rock against a Browns defense that has allowed the most rushing yards per game this season. Josh McCown will be back for the Browns which should help their offense be more productive. I still expect the Ravens to do enough to cover the 3 point spread.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers +3 at Indianapolis Colts

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are coming together at the right time. The offense got Vincent Jackson back to bolster the receiving core for Jameis Winston, who is improving as the season goes along. Now they go on the road to take on a Colts defense that is allowing the 4th most passing yards per game this season. Points shouldn’t be a problem for Tampa Bay especially if Doug Martin can get going against a defense that has allowed the 10th most rushing yards per game this season. The Colts offense will have Matt Hasselbeck under center once again this week. He’s averaging 236 yards and less than two scores a game in his three starts. I don’t think the Colts offense can keep up with Tampa Bay in this game who is better on both sides of the ball. Tampa Bay has covered 5 of their last 6 games and won 3 of their last 4 games. I expect them to extend both streaks getting an impressive road win.
