I still don’t know how the OVERs didn’t come in for me last night, but alas, that’s football…
27-27 as we head into the weekend. A couple of props we like on Sunday and one game (for now). I’ll add a few bets this weekend and I’ll post them on my twitter account, @Tuckonsports
NFL WEEK 6 BETTING ODDS: WEEKEND PICKS
KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (2-3) at WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM (2-3)
MONEYLINE: Chiefs -278 ML, Washington +240 ML
SPREAD: Chiefs -6.5
OVER/UNDER: 54.5 points
With Clyde Edwards-Helaire on injured reserve, Williams will be the bell cow. Don’t get me wrong, the Chiefs aren’t suddenly going to be this rush-first team, but KC has run the ball at least 13 times in each game this season and per PFF, they run the ball 42.4% of the time when they’ve had the lead. Kansas City is favored by 6.5 in this one so the game script should favor more rushes.
The Pick: Darrell Williams OVER 11.5 Carries +100
LOS ANGELES RAMS (4-1) at NEW YORK GIANTS (1-4)
MONEYLINE: Rams -385 ML, Giants +320 ML
SPREAD: Rams -9
OVER/UNDER: 48.5 points
Robert Woods was having a somewhat mediocre season until last week (150 yards on 12 receptions) So why would I bet against him now???
The Rams play the Giants this week who are without their starting QB. The Rams are favored by 9 and should be dominating this game early. I just don’t see Rams’ QB, Matthew Stafford throwing the ball much in the 2nd half.
Could Woods get 63 yards receiving in the first half? Absolutely. But there are a lot of mouths to feed in Los Angeles. Cooper Kupp, Van Jefferson, DeSean Jackson are all talented and will get their fair share of targets. This bet simply comes down to expected game script.
The Pick: Robert Woods UNDER 62.5 receiving yards
CINCINNATI BENGALS (3-2) at DETROIT LIONS (0-5)
MONEYLINE: Bengals -177 ML, Lions +154 ML
SPREAD: Bengals -3.5
OVER/UNDER: 47 points
It’s rare to see such a misprice in the market six weeks into the season, but when you do, you need to pounce.
There are times that the reputation of a team or a coach doesn’t sync up with reality. We are seeing that in New England who are 2-3 on this season against the spread.
In Cincinnati, it’s the opposite. We’re all so used to the Bengals being terrible, people are still not giving them any credit. I get it. They’ve sucked for Sooooooo long – it’s difficult to change the way we think about a team.
While Cincinnati is only 2-3 ATS this season, they are a far superior team to the Lions. Yes, this game is in Detroit and that’s always worth a bit, but when it comes down to it, the Bengals should be 6 point favorites in this game. When you look at Cincinnati’s offense vs Detroit’s defense, the mismatch is glaring
The only question is, can Jared Goff and company keep up with that Cincinnati offense.
I’m betting they can’t.
The Pick: We’re using the alternate lines at Betrivers.com this week and betting on Cincinnati -3
