Year To Date Record: 11-9 ATS
Upset Record: 2-8 -$550
Underdog Pick #1: Carolina Panthers (+245 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Chicago Bears, Sunday, 1:00 ET: We just tend to have a gut that these two teams aren’t as far separated as the NFL odds suggest. QB Cam Newton has played well over the course of the season, and though many will quickly point to the fact that he didn’t even reach 200 passing yards last week against the Jacksonville Jaguars, we’ll also be quick to say that three quarters of that game were played in an absolute deluge. The rain should be away in the Windy City, and that being said, Newton should do significantly better. We just don’t know about these Bears either. The defense this year has been questionable at best, and the offense with QB Jay Cutler just isn’t all that impressive. RB Matt Forte didn’t even reach double digits in rushing in last week’s loss against the Green Bay Packers. An upset could be in the cards in this one.
Underdog Pick #2: St. Louis Rams (+130 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Washington Redskins, Sunday 1:00 ET: The Redskins are probably fool’s gold at this point, and we are definitely calling them on it. We don’t believe in QB Rex Grossman whatsoever, and this split backfield of RB Roy Helu and RB Tim Hightower just isn’t all that great either. For whatever reason, we still believe in the Rams. Sure, this is a team that has lost three games this year, but we have to remember that this has been an incredibly difficult schedule. Playing Washington isn’t the same as taking on either Philadelphia or Baltimore. The difference might really show, especially getting RB Steven Jackson back in the lineup for a full work load this week against a defense that still has a lot of question marks surrounding it.
Underdog Pick #3: Seattle Seahawks (+180 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Atlanta Falcons, Sunday, 4:05 ET: We just love these home underdogs this weekend. The Seahawks play significantly better ball at Qwest Field than they do on the road, especially since all of these road trips are just incredibly long. Speaking of incredibly long roadies, what about the one that the Falcons are set to take? The only win that they have had this year came against the Eagles, and that’s not a win that might be all that sharp by the time the season is said and done with. Losing to the Bears on the road isn’t good. This is a terrible, terrible spot for the visitors, and we plan on taking full advantage of it with these odds.
Underdog Pick #4: Cincinnati Bengals (+135 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Buffalo Bills, Sunday, 1:00 ET: Alright Buffalo, it’s time for you to go away. The Bills are the worst 3-0 team that we have ever seen, and there is no doubt that they are going to be in the dumps shortly. That win last week against New England was the most charged up game that you will see this season by any team. But now, going against the Bengals, all of the air is going to be let out of the building, especially on the road. Cincinnati isn’t great at all, but it has stayed a lot more competitive this year than we would have thought. The Bengals will get back into the win column this week.
