MIAMI DOLPHINS AT NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (-6.5)
This is an AFC East Division match up. The Dolphins are currently 3-0 on the season and 3-0 Against The Spread (ATS) while the 1-2 Patriots are 1-2 ATS. Although the Dolphins are the hotter team right now, their wins have come against the Titans, Jets and Raiders. The numbers lean to the Patriots to cover spread. The Patriots are currently 1-0 ATS the spread this season as a home favorite and 6-1 ATS in the past 3 years when a home favorite of a spread between -3.5 to -7. Also, New England is 12-2 ATS since the start of 2016 when teams allowing at least 350 yards per game (Miami averages 377 YPG). Jay took the points in this game. Troy and Serge backed New England.
BUFFALO BILLS AT GREEN BAY PACKERS (-9)
This is only the 7th meeting at Lambeau Field between these 2 teams. Green Bay holds a 4-2 straight up record. The Bills are coming off a stunning victory in Minnesota and Green Bay is coming off a surprising loss to the Redskins. Both teams are currently 1-2 ATS. The Bills were the benefactors of many, many first half mistakes by the Vikings last week and before Cousins and company knew what was going on, they faced a 27-0 deficit. Under Mike McCarthy, the Packers are 22-13 ATS as a home favorite of between -7.5 and -14. In the studio, we were split again. TRoy took the Packers and Jay and Serge took the points on the road.
DETROIT LIONS AT DALLAS COWBOYS (-3)
The Lions are coming off a big win against the Patriots last Sunday and currently sit 2-1 ATS with both of those covers coming as the underdog. Dallas's only ATS cover was at home on Week 2 against division rival New York Giants. The under of 44.5 is screaming to be played here as Dallas is averaging 13.7 PPG and Detroit scoring 23.3 PPG. Despite a career 15-30 ATS as a home favorite under head coach Jason Garrett, all 3 of us in the Hassle Palace picked the Cowboys on Friday.
TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS AT CHICAGO BEARS (-3)
Both teams are currently in first place in their respective divisions and both teams come into this contest at 2-1 ATS. The series is 15-15 ATS since 1992 and the Bears are 8-6 ATS at home against the Buccaneers in that time. In the past 3 years, Tampa Bay is 2-0 ATS versus Chicago. Each team has plenty of questions that still need to be answered. Will Sunday be FITZmagic or FITZtragic for Tampa Bay? Will Trubisky mature into a 4 quarter quarter back? The Bears defense is great but Tampa Bay's offense is better than the two offenses the Bears faced in their 2 victories. Jay liked the Bears to win the game SU but took the road points. Serge and TRoy will tell you to invest in the Bears.
BALTIMORE RAVENS AT PITTSBURGH STEELERS (-3)
When these to teams meet it is always a slugfest. This Sunday Night Football contest should be no different. In the past 10 years, these 2 teams combined have won this division 7 times and have each won a Super Bowl. Currently, the Ravens are 2-1 ATS with both of the covers coming at home. The Steelers are 0-1-1 ATS this season. Since 2016, the Ravens are 2-0 ATS at Pittsburgh. Jay likes the Ravens in this game and so does Serge. TRoy backs the home team, again.
KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (-5) AT DENVER BRONCOS
This AFC West divisional game is the only road favorite team in this week's Pick 6. The Kansas City Chiefs offense has been amazing this year and it has needed to be. Their defense is terrible and averaging 30.7 PPG. Unfortunately for the Broncos, they are only scoring 23.5 PPG at home this season. Since 2016, Kansas City is 4-0 ATS against the Broncos and 2-0 ATS against the Broncos in Denver. We are split once again on our picks. Jay took the favorites on the road and Serge and TRoy like the home dog on Monday Night
