NFL Spread Pick’ems Week 9

Alan Giovacchini

INDIANAPOLIS -1 at Pittsburgh

James Conner being hurt pretty much eliminates any rushing threat which will allow Darius Leonard and the rest of the up & coming linebackers to assist more with the pass coverage. And without the strong arm of Ben Roethlisberger, Juju & Diontae Johnson can only do so much. COLTS-31 Steelers-16

Chicago at PHILADELPHIA -5

The Bears defense is clearly a different one without Akiem Hicks up-front and the team seems to be way too focused on special teams than good teams should be. Going on the road doesn’t help their cause in Jordan Howard’s revenge game. EAGLES-26 Bears-13

Dallas at New York Giants OVER 48

If there’s anything these 2 teams have in common, it’s that they both have run-oriented offenses and like to attempt sneak attack bomb from far & away. The Giants and Cowboys have a long history of playing close games despite their records and with Dak looking for some money and Jones looking to justify his 6th overall pick in this year’s draft, expect a lot of passes which usually leads to a lot of points. I detect gun powder in the air cause this is gonna be a classic shootout at dusk. Just don’t tell Sharon Stone and Leonardo DiCaprio. New York has enough bad acting already. Giants-34 Cowboys-30

Robert Soderberg

With Washington starting Dwayne Haskins in Buffalo, the Bills D will smash the rookie through the table and cover the -9.5 points.

The Packers will blow out the Chargers in their soccer stadium. Aaron Rodgers will pick apart L.A.’s swiss cheese defense and more than cover the -3.5 points.

During Toilet Bowl 2, there’s no way the Jets at Dolphins makes it Over 42.5 points. TAKE THE UNDER!

Brant Meeks

Washington +9.5 at Buffalo

I really like the Redskins in this game because of how well their defense plays. I don’t trust Josh Allen and the Bills offense to win by 10 points. I think the Bills win but it will be by less than 7.

Tampa Bay at Seattle -6

Do we really think that the Bucs can keep up with the offense of the Seahawks? I definitely don’t and think that Seattle is going to run away with this game early.

Cleveland at Denver OVER 39

I think Baker Mayfield showed some good things last week. I think he will build on that and lead this team to at least 30 points. That means I only need Denver to score 10 points. I think Brandon Allen will manage that. Take the over here.
