buffalo tickets (-11) on new york jets: jets
the bills have actually had only one landslide victory since week 3, and the rival planes usually hang. in new york, a double-digit point differential is driving it.
Miami Dolphins (-4) at Chicago Bears: Dolphins
the dolphins have signaled that they are all inside. the bears have signaled that they are throwing in the towel. this should be a touchdown spread, even in chicago.
green bay packers (-3.5) at detroit lions: lions
I’m taking the bait. The Packers just aren’t much of a football team right now and a familiar enemy should be eager to hang out with them at home, just like Detroit did with a top Dolphins squad in Week 8.
Los Angeles Chargers (-3) at Atlanta Falcons: Chargers
The Angels haven’t hit the nail on the head yet and the Falcons hold their own, but this roll is a gift. these teams are not at the same level, and the bolts travel well. don’t be scared off by the early start across the country.

2021 record: 57-64-1
new york jets at indianapolis colts (-10.5): jets
The Colts are still battered and potentially crushed from a brutal overtime loss to a division rival. Meanwhile, the Jets are struggling after October victories over the division-leading Titans and Flares. they will keep this close.
Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints (-5.5): Falcons
I think the Saints have been playing over their heads. They’re still pretty short and now they don’t have starting quarterback Jameis Winston either. a familiar enemy will stay in what is essentially a must-win game.
denver broncos at dallas cowboys (-9): cowboys
I’m not sure the Broncos have much left after the front office’s decision to throw in the towel at the trade deadline, and it’s not like they’re playing well anyway. now they meet the cowboys with dak prescott probably back. on the road, I’m not sure they can put up a fight.
new england patriots (-3.5) at carolina panthers: patriots
the hook scares me with a rookie quarterback on the road here, but bill belichick has a lot of fun dominating sam darnold and the panthers offense is pretty much useless right now. he would try to buy a half point before betting big on new england.
minnesota vikings at baltimore ravens (-6): ravens
Baltimore knows how to take care of business as a big-middleweight favorite, and the Vikings could be out of steam after a disappointing loss Sunday night to the non-Prescott Cowboys. Add in Danielle Hunter’s injury and the fact that the Ravens have had two weeks to prepare and this won’t be close.
cleveland browns at cincinnati bengals (-2.5): browns
The browns are in worse shape than the Bengals, but I still trust them more after watching a rookie cincinnati team slide against the jets. Cleveland is still a far superior team in terms of overall talent and dvoa. they will find a way to solve this.
buffalo bills (-14) on jacksonville jaguars: bills
The Bills have five wins this season, all by at least 15 points. why the hell would anyone expect them to win by less than that total against one of the worst teams in the league? this should be a blast.
houston texans at miami dolphins (-6.5): dolphins
I would stay away from this one because both teams are pretty down at 1-7 and it’s hard to feel confident in either one. That being said, the Texans are much worse on paper and have fallen by double-digit margins in six of their last seven games. there’s no way I’m only taking 6.5 points with them down the road.
las vegas raiders (-3) in the new york giants: giantss
Eventually, the turmoil surrounding the raiders will catch up with them. that could be the case here, especially with the giants fighting hard with nothing to lose. I’ll take the points with the home team.
The Chargers (-2) at Philadelphia Eagles: Chargers
This line presents value for those who believe the talented Chargers are in a “right game” against a rather weak Eagles squad that played over their heads last week. Against teams with winning records, the Eagles are 0-3 with an average margin of loss of 12.3 points. this is pretty much a pick’em, and as a result, a no-brainer.
green bay packers at kansas city chiefs (-8): packers
is aaron rodgers worth eight points? This was essentially a pick’em before the reigning MVP was ruled out for Green Bay. but I think the Packers still have the talent elsewhere to hang out with a team of dilapidated bosses on both sides of the ball. If Kansas City needs luck to beat the Giants at home, it’s unlikely they’ll topple a Jordan Love-led Green Bay squad by more than one touchdown.
Arizona Cardinals (-1) at San Francisco 49ers: 49ers
San Francisco is putting him together, while the Cardinals are in bad injured shape. I think the 49ers will have enough of a fight to pull this off at home.
tennessee titans at los angeles rams (-7.5): rams
the rams should be on fire for a prime time home game with von miller making his debut, and the titans are too risky without derrick henry. he’d rather get -7 or less, but Los Angeles is still the pick.
chicago bears vs. pittsburgh steelers (-6): steelers
justin fields has taken more sacks than any quarterback in football, and the steelers have one of the fiercest defensive fronts in the nfl. they are racing now, while the bears are spiraling. in pittsburgh, i don’t see that changing on monday night.
