Last week: 2-1-1. Total: 3-1-1
Games I Like
Jaguars +3 @ San Diego Chargers
- The Jags played good last week, just ran into the best QB on the planet in Aaron Rodgers. They have Philip Rivers this week, but he’s without his best receiver in Keenan Allen. I think the Jags make a statement on the road and get a big win against the ailing Chargers.
Oakland Raiders -3 1h vs. Atlanta Falcons
- I could be falling hard for the Raiders bandwagon, but I really like Jack Del Rio’s team. After an impressive win in New Orleans last week, I think they get out to a hot start at home vs. a bad team. The game spread is 4.5, which is a little high, but I’m taking my chances with the first half spread.
Games I don’t Like
Miami Dolphins +6.5 @ New England Patriots
- The Patriots are probably a hot play here, but I’m staying away. The Dolphins played the Seahawks tough and the Patriots are coming off a big win on the road in Arizona. I’m not that confident in this team without Gronk or Brady, and I want to see it again before I bet on them. I’m staying away from this one.
Tampa Bay Bucs +6.5 @ Arizona Cardinals
- I’m staying away from this game because the Bucs actually look like a good team and the Cardinals looked terrible. I actually like the Bucs here with the points, but I think the Cardinals are in desperate need of a win; they can’t start 0-2 (both home games) to start the season considering they’re Super Bowl favorites.
