Las Vegas Raiders at New England Patriots (-6)

The Pick: Patriots (-6)

Coming off a short week, the Raiders come out flat against Cam and the Patriots, leading to an eight to ten point victory.

Los Angeles Rams at Buffalo Bills (-1)

The Pick: Bills (-1)

Buffalo shuts down Jared Goff and the Rams offense, leading to an impressive 3-0 start.

Houston Texans at Pittsburgh Steelers (-4)

The Pick: Texans (+4)

An 0-2 start for the Texans is more a result of playing Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson than poor performance on their end. However, they come up just short against a Steelers team who gets off to a great 3-0 start.

San Francisco 49ers (-3) at New York Giants

The Pick: UNDER 43

With both teams decimated by injuries, this should be a low scoring game that San Francisco pulls out in the very end.

Tennessee Titans (-2.5) at Minnesota Vikings

The Pick: Vikings +128 (Moneyline)

Kirk Cousins and the Vikings salvage their season, shutting down Derrick Henry and the Titans in a big-time win.

Washington Football Team at Cleveland Browns (-7)

The Pick: Browns -325 (Moneyline)

Cleveland will have no problem handling a Washington team that struggles to move the football. Baker Mayfield will have a stellar day, leading Cleveland to their second win in a row.

Cincinnati Bengals at Philadelphia Eagles (-4)

The Pick: Eagles (-4)

The Eagles come out angry in this game. Carson Wentz and the Philly offense take out their frustrations from an 0-2 start on Joe Burrow and the Bengals, winning by 10-12 points.

New York Jets at Indianapolis Colts (-12.5)

The Pick: OVER 44

Indy will come out firing on all cylinders against the lowly Jets. New York will get plenty of garbage-time points in the second half, setting up a high scoring game.

Carolina Panthers at Los Angeles Chargers (-6.5)

The Pick: UNDER 43.5

Without Christian McCaffrey, Carolina will be extremely limited on offense. Rookie Justin Herbert played well in Week 1, but only put up 13 points. Take the under in this one.

Detroit Lions at Arizona Cardinals (-5)

The Pick: Lions (-5)

The Lions save their season here. After a 0-2 start, Matthew Stafford and the Lions desperately need a win, and they get it over Kyler Murray and Arizona in a high-scoring shootout in the desert.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-5) at Denver Broncos

The Pick: Buccaneers (-5)

Without Drew Lock, the Broncos will not get anything going against an extremely underrated Bucs defense. Tom Brady and company will continue their roll from last week, steamrolling Denver by 10-12.

Dallas Cowboys at Seattle Seahawks (-5)

The Pick: Cowboys (+5)

The Cowboys won’t be able to do anything to slow down Russell Wilson, but luckily Seattle won’t be able to contain Dak Prescott as well. Wilson’s team makes one big play down the stretch, leading them to a three point win, but Dallas covers the spread.

Green Bay Packers at New Orleans Saints (-3)

The Pick: Packers +145 (Moneyline)

Likely without star wideout Michael Thomas for the second week, the New Orleans offense will struggle again, leading to Aaron Rodgers and the Packers pulling off an upset victory.

Kansas City Chiefs at Baltimore Ravens (-3)

The Pick: Ravens -180 (Moneyline)

This is the clear game of the week. Arguably the two best teams in football go head to head, and Lamar Jackson defeats Patrick Mahomes and the defending champion Chiefs.
