Bring Down the House: How to Beat Vegas - Week 3
New York Giants at Houston Texans – HOU -6 at -115
The Giants line was already arguably the worst line in the league and they just lost their center, Jon Halapio, for the season. The Texans defense has not performed as well as they should so far but they don’t have to be performing at a top 5 level to take advantage of a line that’s been crumbled by 4 man pass rushes. Watson looks to be slowly getting his groove back after last year’s injuries and with Fuller back, winning by at least a touchdown should not be a problem.
Green Bay Packers at Washington Redskins – GB -3 at -105
I’m actually very surprised the Packers are only a 3 point favorite. They just tied the Vikings and Washington was just crushed by the Colts.
Chicago Bears at Arizona Cardinals – CHI -6.5 at -110
While the Bears offense has looked less than impressive to go with a lot of questionable play calling, the Cardinals don’t appear to have much of an offense at all. Throw in Larry Fitzgerald playing injured or possibly even out this week and a Mack led Chicago defense going against another bad o-line and I don’t see how they don’t find a way to win this game by a minimum of 2 scores.
New England Patriots at Detroit Lions– Over 52 at -110
Stafford seems to have gotten over his week one implosion that may have been caused by the defense knowing his plays. He’s also found a new weapon he likes in Golladay to go along with his two other reliable WRs. The Patriots have a very good defense but Stafford will likely not have a choice but to throw a ton trying his best to keep up while Brady is shredding his.
Pittsburgh Steelers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers – TB ML +105
I’m going to believe in the Fitzmagic a little longer. He’s got the best weapons he’s ever had and he’s playing a Steelers team that seems to be falling apart from the inside.
