Pretty much a break-even week for us as we approach the half-way mark of the regular season. Can’t help but feel let down by the Vikings, who couldn’t cover a +2.5 spread against the Dak-less Dallas Cowboys. We now stand at 19-12-1 on the season.
Despite the Cowboys costing us last week I’m happy to go against them once again as a 9.5 point headstart is rather large given the fact that they face a Broncos side sat at 4-4 and very much in the AFC play-off picture. They’ve also welcomed back Jerry Juedy, who alongside Courtland Sutton can form quite the tandem. The defence has suffered some injuries, and now the loss of Von Miller, but they’ve still conceded the 2nd fewest points in the NFL and will look to contain a very powerful Cowboys offence. Denver has only lost 3 of their last 16 road games by 9 points or more, so whilst Dallas my walkaway with the ‘W’ I would still expect a close contest.
After starting the season in red-hot form, the Chargers have hit the skids in recent weeks losing to both the Ravens and Patriots, and whilst the Eagles certainly won’t a push-over I do think that Los Angeles have a little bit too much firepower on offence for an Eagles defence that can sometimes be found wanting. Philadelphia has lost 5 of their last 6 at home, with the Chargers winning 4 of their last 5 on the road. Justin Herbert has had a couple of rough outings which would say he’ll come out firing on Sunday.
Buffalo Bills at Jacksonville Jaguars – Over 48 points @ 1.87 with VBet (back down to 49)
Minnesota Vikings at Baltimore Ravens – Over 49.5 points @ 1.91 with Several (back down to 50)
All selections are advised at 1 point each, with a 100 point bankroll.
