Intro notes: Just like in Week 8, it’s important to take note of the weather across the league for this week. Numerous games (mainly Jags @ Packers, Texans @ Browns, Bengals @ Steelers, and a couple of others) will be heavily impacted weather, so make sure to check before placing your bets.
Texans @ Browns
Browns are 7-2 SU, 5-3-1 ATS in their last 9 home games
7-1 SU, 5-2-1 ATS as favourites
In games as favourites, 6 of these games were won by 1-14
Texans are 4-6 SU, 5-5 ATS in road games as underdogs since 2019
5 of the losses by 14 points or less
This is one of the games that will be affected by weather – predominately wind and rain. The Browns played in similar conditions 2 weeks ago, and the Texans are a dome team. This will advantage the Browns.
Model says: Browns by 5
I liked Browns -3 at the start of the week, but the current number is making me look for value elsewhere.
Recommended Bet: 1.5 Units – Browns win + Texans +14.5 @ $2.30 (Sportsbet SGM)
Washington @ Lions
Washington are 0-3 SU, 1-2 ATS in road games in 2020
Have top-respect for Washington QB Alex Smith for coming back after his horrific injury I think he’s a downgrade from Kyle Allen, with his 16.4 (!!!) total QBR in 2020
A bit like the Chargers, I don’t trust the Lions to put the foot on the throat of their opponents and extend their leads, so I’ll be looking at the first half only here.
Lions are 5-3 ATS in 1st halves, Washington are 1-8 ATS
Recommended Bet: 1.5 Units – Detroit 2.5 1st Half @ $1.90 (Bet365)
Eagles @ Giants
The Eagles have absolutely owned the Giants in recent years, 8-1 SU, 4-5 ATS under Doug Pederson
7 wins by 1-7
Giants are 1-4 SU, 1-4 ATS in home games this season
3 losses by 1-10
Recommended Bet: 1 Unit – Eagles by 1-14 @ $2.25 (Sportsbet)
Bucs @ Panthers
If there’s one thing we’ve learned about the 2020 Panthers, it’s that they’re tough. Under their first year of Matt Rhule, they haven’t been beaten by more than 2 scores this season
8 of their 9 games have been decided by 10 points or less
Bucs have been a bit of a mix bag this season, having won 4 games by 10+ and losing 2 by 10+, you don’t know what you’re going to get. So this isn’t a large stake compared to previous weeks.
Recommended Bet: 1.5 Units – Either Team by Under 10.5 Points @ $1.85 (Pointsbet)
49ers @ Saints
Since 2019, 49ers are 6-3 SU, 7-2 ATS as underdogs in the regular season
For those who have followed us throughout this season, you’ll know that we think the Saints are overrated. Yes, they are 6-2, the record of a great team, but with only one win by more than two scores, we think they still miss that killer instinct that we’ve grown accustomed to in the past. One team got pumped on national TV (49ers), and the other looked unbeatable on national TV (Saints) last week. You won’t find a bigger polarising perception between two teams playing against each other.
Saints are 14-7 SU, 7-14 ATS as home favourites since 2018
Model says Saints by 4.5
Recommended Bet: 1.5 Units – 49ers +9.5 @ $1.94 (Sportsbet)
Broncos @ Raiders
6 of the 8 Broncos games have been decided by 10 points or less
6 of the 8 Raiders games have been decided by 10 points or less
6 of the 8 Raiders divisional games have been decided by 10 points or less since 2019
Both games against Broncos
5 of the 8 Broncos divisional games have been decided by 10 points or less since 2019
5-0 against teams NOT names Kansas City
Recommended Bet: 3 Units – Either Team by Under 10.5 Points @ $1.77 (Pointsbet)
