5 Things I Expect to See in the NFL Today (week 6)

Right so i’m currently 11-4 with these predictions. The first one was an Adrian Peterson touchdown shy of a big win, and last weeks missed because the Panthers and the Falcons just decided not to score points, and Dan Quinn lost his job. So I guess it cost him more than it cost me.

I’ve fallen one tick short of a huge dub twice in this series, and really need to get that fifth spot over the line. So here we go with week 6.

The over in the Browns Steelers game

Currently set at 51 points, I’m taking the over in this huge rivalry game today. I’d hate to try and predict a winner, and will most definitely be watching this one, so i’m taking the points.

Big Ben and the Steelers found their scoring shoes last week, and Chase Claypool quickly became a household name. Four touchdowns for the tight end looking receiver fella who shone in the combine, and he might be a star in the Steel City.

I noted last week that the Steelers hadn’t yet broken the 30 point mark, and that last week was the week, and it was. *Pats self on back. That being said, they also gave up 29 points to the struggling Eagles, and the game had 67 points. That number gives me every confidence in the over for this game, considering this is the Steelers toughest competition yet on defence.

Great hire in Cleveland, the Browns go 4-1 under offensive mastermind Kevin Stefanski.

It will however all depend on whether the Steelers defence can rattle Baker Mayfield, if that happens we’re in trouble. But I’m standing my ground on Kevin Stefanski being a fantastic hire for the Browns, they’re 4-1 and 3rd in the league in points scoring.

BET THE OVER. Responsibly, and only if you want to. Don’t listen to me. (You should though)

Ravens cover at Philly

The Ravens are -10 against the Eagles in Philly this afternoon. It’s a tough number but i’ve got them walking away with it.

The Eagles are still without Alshon Jeffery, Desean Jackson and Jalen Raegor. Wentz options at receiver are limited and the Ravens will blanket whoever they’ve got left with one of the most powerful defences in the league. That being said, the Ravens weakpoint is arguably the safeties, but Wentz just isn’t going to have time to get the ball back there.

The Eagles might have scored 29 points against the Steelers last week, but 14 of those were due to Miles Sanders rushing, and the Ravens defensive line might just swallow him whole today. If the Ravens can contain Sanders, and get to Wentz quick enough, this bet line is a walk in touchdown.

Another small note, Patrick Queen is going to be a stud in this league. Ravens stole him in the draft, and he looks wicked.

Lane Johnson won’t play at right tackle, so the Eagles will miss him too, and I like the Ravens to drop 40 points. Eagles won’t keep up with that, cover the -10 Baltimore.

Titans walk to 5-0

Now is not a good time for the Texans to head into Tennessee.

The Titans exposed the Bills on Tuesday night, who up until that point were considered a very strong team. The scary thing is that they still might be, it’s just they couldn’t match up with the Titans. Josh Allen did play a large part in throwing the game away, and put out by far his worst performance so far this season. But i’m attributing some of that to a strong pass rush in Tennessee.

And THAT, does not bode well for Deshaun Watson and the Texans. With arguably one of the worst O lines in the league, Deshaun is in for a long day.

The Texans cant run the ball at the best of times, and on Tuesday night, outside of a 34 yard breaking run from TJ Yeldon, the Titans barely gave up 50 yards. David Johnson just looks washed which is a real shame to see, but he’s not reignited his career in Houston the way some had hoped he would.

At only -3.5, i’m taking the Titans. Point scoring will be an issue once again for a head coachless Texans team in mid season turmoil. I feel for Deshaun, but as a Dolphins fan, sitting on their draft pick, i guess I’ll survive.

Titans to cover the spread.

DOLPHINS AGAIN

I took the Dolphins and the points last week against the 49ers. I was right. I’m going with the Dolphins again this week, against the spread, and i’m throwing in the over for when we score 40 points on the Jets.

Not much needs to be said about this one. The Jets are outright horrible. Gase is still there and as long as that’s true they will continue to export talent to other teams, lose games and shrug their shoulders at the reasons why.

I’d love to see us wrecking the Jets result in Gase getting fired this week, but as long as we win comfortably, i’m good.

Dolphins -8.5 and the game to cover the over.

A horribly ugly game between Washington and the Giants

These two are struggling offensively. Both of them. The Washington football team don’t really have a quarterback and I think this might be the perfect landing spot for Trevor Lawrence in the draft. One thing I do feel confident on, is that Dwayne Haskins, nor Kyle Allen, seem to be the answer.

I must take a moment to pay huge respects to my guy Alex Smith, the comeback is insane. Bravo to that man. But that being said, Washington got mauled by the Rams defence last week.

The Giants won’t put that kind of pressure on them. But these two teams are in the bottom three for points per game this season. Two struggling offences, two teams who have questionable franchise quarterbacks and a lot to be desired, meaning an ugly game with a lot of inaccuracy, turnovers and fewer points.

Whooooooops. Turnovers galore. A totally ugly game. Bet the under.

I don’t care who wins, i’m taking the under at 43. And I think i’d still be confident if the over/under was 30. I’d also happily take the over at 7 on interceptions.

The Bet

A small £5 bet returns a whopping £309.17, and I’ll see you at the finish line. Rex out, let’s win some money. Dead cert. I don’t want to hear your nonsense. Cover it, or don’t, but do whatever you do responsibly and of your own accord. (Covering myself lol).
