Ben's Picks

All trends are ATS (Against The Spread) unless otherwise specified.

 

  • Loser - 5* Kansas City v SAN DIEGO --- Chiefs play Chargers close and it’s do or die.

 

  • Loser - 5* Cincy v INDY --- Bengals are hot, Colts are cold, plus you get 3.5 points.

 

  • WINNER - 4* Jets v MINNY --- Vikings shouldn’t be spotting anyone.

 

  • WINNER - 4* Jax v TENNESSEE --- Jags not the same on the road, Titans on a roll.

 

  • Loser - 3* Cleveland v BALTIMORE ---- Browns are pathetic, Ravens need to finish strong.

 

 
Picks Results = 2-3 for -5*
