Beating the Book

Beating the Book

This article is part of our Beating the Book series.

Last week was mediocre. I went 7-7 overall, lost my best bet (Broncos) and had a 3-2 showing in the Supercontest

This week I especially like the Ravens, Eagles and Giants.

THURSDAY NIGHT

Falcons +2.5 at Panthers

I made this line 3.5, as I typically like the home team on the short week, the Panthers have been at least as good as the Falcons this year, and I like fading teams off heartbreaking losses – the Panthers close loss to the Saints was one thing, but the Falcons flat out gave away the game against the Lions. Lay the wood. 

Panthers 27 - 23

EARLY GAMES

Colts -3 at Lions

I made this 2.5, so that puts me on the Lions. I'm just not quite ready to lay three on the road with Philip Rivers

Colts 24 - 23

Vikings +6.5 at Packers

The Vikings dealt Yannick Ngakoue over the bye, signaling a surrender of sorts on the season after getting blown out by the Falcons. If Dalvin Cook returns, he could go off against the Packers defense, but I'd expect the Packers to pull away. Lay the wood. 

Packers 30 - 21

Patriots +3.5 at Bills

The Patriots have been beyond shaky the last two games, but I'll put my money on the GOAT to call a competitive game against a struggling Bills squad. Take the points. 

Patriots 20 - 19

Titans -6 at Bengals
