Featured Game | Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants

Whatever faith I lost in the Cowboys after their loss to the Green Bay Packers I picked up after their 40-3 win over the Minnesota Vikings. This is how a legitimate competitor reacts after a defeat. As for the Giants, they were blown away by the Detroit Lions at home on Sunday, and have suffered several notable injuries that will affect them over the short week.

It’s a big gap, but I want to put the points with the Cowboys. The Giants have lost two of their last three games after starting the season 6-1, and they strangely struggled on first downs – both on offense and defense. daniel jones‘ The unit averaged 4.4 yards per play on first downs (second-fewest in the NFL), while the defense allows an average of 6.9 yards per play on first downs (most in the NFL). We saw what the Cowboys did to the Vikings last week. Tony Pollard recorded 189 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns, while the defense allowed no touchdowns.

These are two teams moving in opposite directions. Whether Cooper Rush can beat the Giants by seven points on the road, which Dak Prescott make at home ?

The choice : Cowboys -10
Projected score: Cowboys 31-17

Featured Game | New York Jets vs. Chicago Bears

My two cents on the Zach Wilson bench:

  • Zach Wilson was benched mainly because of comments he made after the loss to the New England Patriots.
  • Zach Wilson probably deserves to be benched for his game alone.
  • Mike White going to bring some juice to this offense.

The Jets were favored by 4.5 points over the Bears before the Wilson bench news. Now they are favored by six points.

I said on Twitter before I even found out who was going to be the starting quarterback that the Jets were the best bet this week. They have a great team! All they need is a quarterback who can do basic passes, and I think White can do that. As for the bears, Justin Fields has been in tears lately, but he hasn’t been able to lead Chicago to victory on his own. Now that he bumped into it, I don’t expect that to change. Give me the Jets to cover at home.

The choice : Throws -6
Projected score: Jets 24-16

Atlanta Falcons among Washington commanders (-4.5)

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (Fox, Fubo TV)

Featured Game | Washington Commanders vs. Atlanta Falcons

I don’t like putting five points because it’s a weird number, but why not play the hot hand? If you follow my lucrative column, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been all over the Commanders – picking them to upset the Packers and Indianapolis Colts straight to more money as better bets. This WAS -3 line last week was also too easy.

Ron Rivera’s frown has been upset ever since Taylor Heinicke took over at quarterback. The Commanders head coach had a habit of dropping F-bombs at press conferences and storming out of post-game media briefings. Now he shines on Zoom calls and talks about wearing Heinicke t-shirts. Washington should get a boost this week with the return of star pass rusher hunt young — which we all know will bring the energy. Heinicke is 10-2-1 ATS in his last 13 starts. Give me the commanders at home.

The choice : Commanders -4.5
Projected score: Commanders 28-21

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (CBS, Paramount+)

Featured Game | Miami Dolphins vs. Houston Texans

I am not new to double digit spreads. I mean, how many people took it down Carolina Panthers to cover 13 points against a rested Baltimore Ravens the home team as the best bet like I did? Miami beat the Cleveland Browns by 22 points in his last outing. What will the dolphins do for Kyle Allen and the Texans at home coming out of a bye?

The Dolphins have recorded three straight 30-point games – just shy of the longest streak in franchise history. The Texans, on the other hand, are averaging just 15.9 points per game. Expect blast as Texans seek No. 1 overall pick in 2023 NFL Draft.

The choice : Dolphins -13.5
Projected score: Dolphins 35-14

Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ET (CBS, Paramount+)

Featured Game | Arizona Cardinals vs. Los Angeles Chargers

The Cardinals’ vacation in Mexico City couldn’t have been worse. One of their assistant coaches was fired for allegedly groping a woman and then the team was destroyed by the san francisco 49ers, 38-10. The Chargers also suffer a loss as they gave Mahomes and the Chiefs all they could handle before the MVP favorite added another win to his resume.

Did you know the Chargers are cover machines? Not only are they 7-3 ATS on the year, they’re 9-4 ATS on the road since 2021 (fourth-best in the NFL), which includes spread coverage in each of the last five games on the road. The Cardinals, meanwhile, are 4-10 ATS at home since 2021, which ranks the worst in the NFL over that stretch. I think the Chargers have a really good offense with Keenan Allen and mike williams back, no more josh palm tree the child is not bad either. At three points, I’ll take the Chargers.

The choice : Chargers -3
Projected score: Chargers 28-24
