Ben's Picks

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

 

  • Loser - 5* Indy v DENVER --- The Colts are a flawed team and don’t match up with the Broncos. Denver will run the ball on a below average defense and slow down Peyton for the win.

 

  • Loser - 4* Houston v TENNESSEE --- Texans improving, Carr finding WR’s. Titans won’t keep up.

 

  • WINNER - 4* Baltimore v NEW ORLEANS --- Ravens get back on track. Saints wake up and face reality.

 

  • Loser - 4* Pittsburgh v OAKLAND --- Steelers are not in a good mood, Raiders pay the price.

 

  • Loser - 3* Atlanta v CINCY --- Falcons not that good, Bengals hungry home team.
 
Picks Results = 1-4 for -12*
