Game of the Week

Denver Broncos @ Oakland Raiders
Favourite: Raiders -1

The Broncos are 6-2 SU and ATS after a 27-19 home win over the San Diego Chargers. Their defense stepped up, picking off Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers three times to counter three turnovers by their offense.

The Raiders are also 6-2 SU (5-3 ATS). They took a record-setting 23 penalties while beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 30-24 in overtime last Sunday. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr had an incredible outing, throwing for 513 yards and four touchdowns.

The Broncos have had the upper hand in this AFC West rivalry lately, going 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 with Oakland, who managed a 15-12 victory in Denver last December. The total for Sunday’s game is 44.

 

Game with the Biggest Spread

Dallas Cowboys @ Cleveland Browns
Favourite: Cowboys -7.5

The Browns find themselves in this category every week because they’re often the biggest underdog. They're now 0-8 SU (2-6 ATS) after a 31-28 loss at home to the New York Jets, in which they blew a 20-7 lead at the half. Cleveland quarterback Josh McCown tried to do his part, throwing for 341 yards and two touchdowns, but he also tossed a pair of picks, which hurt the team.

The Cowboys sit atop the NFC East after a 29-23 overtime home win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Quarterback Dak Prescott looked like a rookie in the first half, but made plays when it counted, throwing for 287 yards, two touchdowns and a pick.

Dallas and Cleveland have met every four years since 2004 and the Cowboys have won all three straight up and are 2-1 ATS, failing to cover as a 7-point home favourite in a 23-20 win over the Browns in 2012.

 

Game with the Second Smallest Spread

Philadelphia Eagles @ New York Giants
Favourite: Giants -3                                                  

The Broncos-Raiders game has the smallest spread of the week, so the next smallest is the NFC East Eagles-Giants showdown. The Eagles are 4-3 SU and ATS this season after their loss in Dallas; they’ve now dropped three of four. Their offense has tapered off and is averaging just 21.8 points per game over their last four after scoring at least 29 points in each of their first three.

The Giants, who are also 4-3, are coming off a bye after the trip from London, but they’re just 11-18-1 ATS in their last 29 games following a bye. The Eagles are 7-3 SU and ATS in their last 10 meetings with the Giants, winning and covering in their last four games. The Eagles also have scored 27 points or more in each of those four wins, so the New York defense should play a major role in this massive NFC East contest.
