Cleveland Browns at Houston Texans    -10 / 46.5

Sunday Oct 15 1:00 pm

The Browns for the 1000th year in a row have a mid season QB change. I actually think this a good move for them as Hogan is further along than Kizer at this point in their careers. Averaging only 15 pts a game on offense I think the move will improve that number by at least a touchdown per game. Meanwhile, Houston lost two of their best defensive players last week and have to retool on the fly for a team that is already giving up 26 a game. Watson and that offense have shown they can light up the scoreboard, as they are putting up 29 points per outing. We get a shootout on Sunday with the Texans skill players on full display.

Pick: over 46.5

 

Detroit Lions at New Orleans Saints    -4 / 49.5

Sunday Oct 15 1:00 pm

I was real high on the Lions last week and thought they had finally turned a corner and would show up in a big spot. Carolina punched them straight in the mouth and rolled to an easy victory last week. A few garbage time scores late, cover up an ugly performance. The Lions D was living off turnovers and just couldn’t hold up without them. New Orleans is coming off their bye, rested, and refocused after trading a disgruntled AP. With that backfield defined, I think we will see an even more potent offense. Couple that with a functional defense, the Saints get an easy win at home.

Pick: Saints -4

 

LA Rams at Jacksonville Jaguars    -2.5 / 42

Sunday Oct 15 4:05 pm

The Jaguars are coming off a huge win last week and will no doubt be feeling themselves. They nabbed 5 interceptions against Big Ben, returning 2 of them in a great performance. LA will not make that mistake. They will feed Todd Gurley, and you will see a repeat of what the Jets did to them. Pounding the rock will open up the deep ball for Goff and they will catch the Jags loading the box. Jacksonville falls back to earth and the Rams prove they are for real getting a big road win.

Pick: Rams +2.5
