Best NFL Sports Betting Sites
Indianapolis Colts vs Denver Broncos (-3.0 -105)
Thursday Night Football pits two struggling offenses, both without their best running backs. Colts RB Jonathan Taylor has been ruled out and Denver RB Javonte Williams is out for a number of weeks. The Denver defense is 8th in DVOA and the Broncos boast a Thursday Night Football record of 6-2-0. Take the Broncos. (Denver -3)
New York Giants vs Green Bay Packers (-7.5)
The London Game 2.0 starts at 9:30 am and pits a pair of 3-1-0 sides. The Giants defense is 23rd in DVOA and that isn’t going to cut it against Aaron Rodgers and the red-hot Packers. Look for Rodgers and Green Bay to steamroll the Giants defense and cover the spread. Take Green Bay (Green Bay -7.5 -105).
Pittsburgh Steelers (+14) vs Buffalo Bills
That’s a big number, but since 2007 the Steelers are 32-23-2 as away underdogs, and that’s too many points even for Buffalo. The Steelers will start a rookie QB with a struggling offense, and a 10th best DVOA defense is going to find a way to slow down Bills QB Josh Allen and somehow cover the spread. Take Pittsburgh (Steelers +14 points -107).
Los Angeles Chargers (-2.5) vs Cleveland Browns
The Chargers have played a tough schedule, and maybe their defense is better than what their current stats say. Look for the Chargers offense to shine here against the No. 30 ranked DVOA defense, and the Los Angeles defense to step up against a Cleveland side averaging 26 points per game against soft defenses. Take the Chargers (Chargers -2.5 -107)
Chicago Bears vs Minnesota Vikings (-7.0)
Chicago will likely miss RB David Montgomery, and that will hurt an already challenged Bears offense. Minnesota has too much offensive firepower, and playing at home gives the offense a boost against a Bears defense that hasn’t been tested like they will on Sunday. Take Minnesota (Vikings -7.0 -110)
Detroit Lions (+3.0) vs New England Patriots
Detroit may be 1-3-0, but they’re 3-1-0 ATS and meet a Patriots side likely missing starting QB Mac Jones and taking his place is rookie QB Bailey Zappe. Detroit puts points on the board and fights to the end, and that will be enough to cover the spread and maybe win this one straight-up. Take Lions (Lions +3.0, -110).
Seattle Seahawks (+5.5) vs New Orleans Saints
Saints QB Jameis Winston is probably going to miss another contest with all sorts of injuries. The Saints have dropped three straight, are 1-3-0 ATS, and face a Seattle side with a couple of serious playmakers in Tyler Locket and DK Metcalf. New Orleans has scored 49 points over their last three games and won’t be able to score enough to cover the number. Take Seattle (Seahawks +5.5 -107)
Miami Dolphins (Dolphins -3.0) vs New York Jets
Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa is out, and Teddy Bridgewater is in. Bridgewater is 24-6 ATS as a starter on the road, and he has too many offensive weapons that could do serious damage to a 25th Jets DVOA defense. The Miami DVOA ranking is worse than the Jets, but Miami has played a tough schedule and the Jets offense isn’t good enough to hurt the Fins. Take Miami (Dolphins -3.0 -115).
Atlanta Falcons vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-8.5)
Atlanta is the only undefeated team ATS (4-0) but they’re without Corderelle Patterson and missing their top offensive player won’t work against one of the best defenses in the pro game. The Bucs offense is banged up and QB Tom Brady is nursing a shoulder injury, but the Tampa Bay defense will rule the day and the offense will find a way to cover. Take Tampa Bay (Buccaneers -8.5 -110)
Tennessee Titans (-2.5) vs Washington Commanders
Washington is 30th in passing DVOA and that’s not going to cut it against a Titans side on a two-game winning streak with a burgeoning tandem between QB Ryan Tannehill and WR Robert Woods. Washington is hoping to end a three-game losing streak and has scored 45 points over their past three contests. Tennessee isn’t the best defensive unit on the planet, but the Titans offense will outscore Washington and cover the spread. Take Tennessee (Titans -2.5 -105)
Houston Texans vs Jacksonville Jaguars (-7)
The Jags have been better than expected, while the Texans are exactly what the pundits said they were. The most surprising aspect of the Jags is their defense, which ranks 6th in DVOA, and we expect this defense to keep the already low-scoring Texans off of the scoreboard. Take Jacksonville (Jags -7.0 -110)
San Francisco 49ers (-6.5 -110) vs Carolina Panthers
Panthers QB Baker Mayfield has played his way out of the starting lineup, but the Panthers are stuck with him until Sam Darnold can return from injury. San Francisco has one of the best if not THE best defense in the game and Carolina isn’t going to be able to score enough to cover. Take San Francisco (49ers -6.5 -110)
Dallas Cowboys (+5.5) vs Los Angeles Rams
Dallas has reeled off three consecutive victories since QB Dak Prescott and the Cowboys, and its opportunistic defense is going to cause Rams QB Matthew Stafford all sorts of problems. Stafford has more interceptions than TD passes and while LA will likely win this contest, the 1-3-1 ATS Rams won’t be able to cover the 5.5 points. Take Dallas (Cowboys +5.5 -110).
Philadelphia Eagles vs Arizona Cardinals (+5)
Philly is the lone unbeaten team, but Arizona has played the stronger schedule and is 2-2-0 ATS against the likes of the Rams, Chiefs and Raiders. The Eagles have been impressive and most likely will win this game, but Arizona is covering on Sunday. Take Arizona (Cardinals +5 -110).
Cincinnati Bengals (+3) vs Baltimore Ravens
The Bengals have reeled off a couple of wins and find themselves as away underdogs vs another 2-2-0 side. Cincy has the 7th ranked DVOA, and it will be the defense that carries the Bengals long enough for Cincinnati QB Joe Burrow to do his thing. I wouldn’t be surprised if Cincinnati doesn’t win this one outright. Take Cincinnati (Bengals +3, +100).
Las Vegas Raiders vs Kansas City Chiefs (-7)
The Raiders defense has been a major letdown, but they have played four potential playoff teams with good offenses. That being said, they face another tough offense Monday Night, and it’s difficult not seeing the Chiefs outscore a Las Vegas offense that hasn’t found the “on” switch yet this season. Take Kansas City (Chiefs -7, -107)
