Our first losing week in almost 2 months but given the fact that the Lions were missing half their roster by the time in got to Sunday I can’t say I’m surprised. We now stand at 35-21-1 on the season.
Carolina Panthers at Buffalo Bills – Panthers +11 @ 1.91 with Smarkets Sportsbook (back down to +10)
The Bills are coming off a tough loss against the Bucs, in which Josh Allen injured his ankle and is struggling with mobility. Given the fact that he’s about 50% of the Bills rushing attack it does play straight into the Panthers hands as they’re far better at stopping the pass with a strong pass rushing duo in Brian Burns and Haason Reddick. The Panthers offence is really struggling but they do possess enough weapons to at least keep in touch with Buffalo. +11 is a big number given that Carolina aren’t yet out of the play-off picture in the NFC.
Tennessee Titans at Pittsburgh Steelers – Steelers +2 @ 1.91 with Coral (back down to +1)
I’m quite shocked that the Steelers don’t start this game as favourite. Yes, the Titans are 9-4 but the offence is very much undermanned with A.J. Brown and Derrick Henry out of the line-up. Pittsburgh is still in the AFC North race with a win taking them back above .500. Chase Claypool and Devin Bush have both been questioned in the media this week and will be looking for a big response. With the Steelers winning 12 of their last 16 at Heinz Field I’m happy to take them all the way down to +1.
Las Vegas Raiders at Cleveland Browns – Over 38 points @ 1.91 with Several (back down to 39)
Tennessee Titans at Pittsburgh Steelers – Over 41 points @ 1.91 with Sky Bet (back down to 42)
Value in the Raiders, Washington, and Seahawks, but with covid passing through various rosters I just can’t trust it.
Just a quick note on Covid – There does seem to be a rather large number of positive cases across the NFL this week, so you may wish to wait until Sunday morning to place any selections.
All selections are advised at 1 point each, with a 100 point bankroll.
