Year To Date Record: 6-7 ATS
Upset Record: 2-5 -$250
Underdog Pick #1: Chicago Bears (+170 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Green Bay Packers, Sunday, 4:15 ET: The Packers are well on their way to another fantastic season for sure, but we’re not ready to write off the Bears quite yet. These two divisional foes remember what happened last time they met in the Windy City; Green Bay stole the NFC Championship from the hearts of the fans at Soldier Field. However, this time around, we’d like to think that QB Jay Cutler is going to be able to stay on the field. The Bears’ running game seems to be more confident than it was last year at this time with RB Matt Forte doing a tad bit of everything as well. On top of that, we’re just not all that sure that the Packers are suited for the road. After all, they were nearly taken down by the Carolina Panthers last week, of all teams. We’re willing to say that this is nearly a 50/50 proposition that we’re backing the side at +170.
Underdog Pick #2: Houston Texans (+175 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ New Orleans Saints, Sunday 1:00 ET: This is going to be the second straight week that we are going against the Saints at the Superdome, and we prefer this spot to even the one that we had last week with the Bears. Houston really needs to prove that it is legit. The only problem that it has had this year defensively has been handling a rushing game straight up the gut. That’s about the only thing that the Saints don’t have the ability to do offensively. That being said, we’re not afraid of Houston getting into a shootout with New Orleans, knowing that this is just the right spot for QB Matt Schaub, WR Andre Johnson, and company to prove that they are for real this season.
Underdog Pick #3: Denver Broncos (+270 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Tennessee Titans, Sunday, 1:00 ET: A nice price here on the Broncos. Tennessee has a lot of hype around it right now after it took down the Baltimore Ravens last week. However, we’re just not all that sure that it is justified for this team to be a TD favorite over anyone. We know that the Broncos have played a dreadful schedule thus far, but we don’t think that playing the Titans is all that much more difficult than going against the Oakland Raiders or Cincinnati Bengals. The difference is that this one is on the road. Still, we can’t justify in our heads that Denver should be more than a 2 to 1 underdog, and we plan on fully capitalizing come Sunday.
