Well, well, well. We got a solid lineup this week and can really enjoy some quality matchups. With the late post this week, I can already share that the Dallas Cowboys defeated the New Orleans Saints to put a stranglehold on the NFC East. Can any other teams take control of their division? Well Elldee Sports is here to give you three sure things.
Cleveland @ Houston (-6)
Chicago (-4.5) @ NY Giants
Kansas City (-15) @ Oakland
Cleveland is on a two game winning streak which is impressive for a team that is as woeful as the Browns have been the past few years. Although they have beaten Atlanta at home and a downward trending Bengals team on the road, I do not believe they can defeat a Houston Texans team on an eight game win streak. Additionally, the Texans have covered the spread in 4 of the last 5 games. Take Houston to cover.
Chicago is playing with Chase Daniel at quarterback again but that hasn’t slowed them in previous weeks as they are riding a five-game winning streak and covering in all five matches. The NY Giants have only won three games all season, including two of the last three but since week two have alternated between covering and not. Surprise, surprise but this is the week they will fail to cover if history holds true and Chicago’s defense will ensure that happens.
Kansas City has a lot of distractions this week after releasing Kareem Hunt this week. That won’t matter vs the shaky Oakland Raiders. KC is coming off of a bye week and are already handling business this year on the arm of Mahomes. Oakland on the other hand have appeared to have already hung the cleats up this year in hopes of a huge draft class and the future. Take the shorthanded Chiefs and the cover.
There you have it. Three solid picks for the week. Don’t forget to look at all of the scores predicted by the formula this week under the NFL tab on Elldeesports.com. Good luck, readers!
