Locks of the Week
The Chargers should absolutely roll at home vs the Bengals. Rivers led a huge comeback last week and is pretty much on fire. They’ll cover with ease.
Peyton Manning and the Broncos are coming off of a devastating loss to the New England Patriots. This is terrible news for the banged up KC Chiefs. All I have to do now is head on over to sports betting dime and pick which site I want to cash in on.
While I expect Carolina to win the game, I don’t have the confidence to say they’ll cover an 8.5 point spread. That .5 is the difference maker in my decision, so I’m going with Tampa.
I’m laying 8.5 points with New England vs Houston solely based on the fact that Case Keenum can’t hit any receiver not named Andre Johnson. Teams have keyed in on this, blanketing Andre 3000 with double coverage, stifling the Texans offense. Any time you lay 8+ points is a tough call, but you gotta do it with this matchup.
