Chicago Bears vs Indianapolis Colts:
Colts are 3.5 point favorite I'll take them to cover this game at home, especially after a heartbreaking loss last week in London. I thought being the first team to play the week after playing in London would screw with the Colts a little do to jet lag, but they're playing Brian Hoyer and the Bears. Andrew Luck has a big day for the Colts as they get back in the win column and cover the spread.
New England Patriots vs Cleveland Browns:
Tom Brady makes his return and he's going to be looking to kill any Browns defender that gets in his way. The Pats are a 10.5 point favorite, I don't like to eat that many points, but they are playing the Browns and Tom Brady is going to want to send a message to the league today, I'll be surprised if they Patriots don't win by 20, this game is a lock.
Cincinnati Bengals vs Dallas Cowboys:
This Dallas offense will face their first test of the season today, up to this point they haven't played any real defenses besides maybe the Giants, but the Bengals defense is a whole different animal. I think Dak will be under a lot of pressure today and he will throw his first interception. Bengals are a 2.5 point favorite so I'll take them to win this football game by at least a field goal. Cowboy fans this a big day for you guys as you'll finally get to see what your team is really made of. Unfortunately, you'll see that they aren't as good as you originally thought, Bengals build off last week's performance today as they take care of business.
Buffalo Bills vs Los Angeles Rams:
Bills are coming off back to back wins and are the favorite to win this game. That's exactly why I'm going to take the Rams as a 2.5 point dog. The Bills have never played well after getting big wins under Rex Ryan, Ryan was still talking about beating the Patriots this week which could only mean his attention isn't completely on the Rams. The Rams have the better defense so I think they'll be able to shut down this hit or miss Bills offense, and I think Todd Gurley is poised for a big game. The Rams win this game out right, I don't really need the points because I know the Rams will take care of business this week, but I'll take em just in case.
San Diego Chargers vs Oakland Raiders:
Give me the RAIDERS(Berman voice) at -3.5 over a wounded Chargers team. Oakland is at home and the Chargers have a defense decimated by injuries. Derek Carr is going to have a monster day passing as this game will be a high scoring affair, but at no point will it really be a close ball game. Oakland is without Latavius Murray but they'll be able to manage against a San Diego defense that has failed to hold a team to under 25 points this year, if you let up 33 points to a Chiefs offense with no weapons, they're going to let up huge points against an Oakland offense with a lot of weapons. Raiders are my lock of the week as a 3.5 point favorite over the Chargers.
