Week 4 was a little boring in the NFL. Of course it had to follow a absolutely insane weekend of college football. On to week 5:
Houston +3 vs. Indianapolis: Indy has been very very mediocre this season. I don’t like their chances to turn it around at all. The only caution here would be that people do not seem to be as high on Indy as they usually are.
Miami +7 vs. San Diego: I’m not very keen on this one, but It could be a possibility because Miami is going against an awful Charger defense and Norv Turner.
Carolina -10 vs. Kansas City: That is a big number to lay and I doubt i will in the end, but there may be some value in this line if people overrate KC’s blowout win against an overrated denver team.
Tampa Bay +3.5 @ Denver: Denver’s defense is terrible. I’ve documented that in previous posts. If the public is willing to jump on Denver at this number, I’m certainly willing to take Tampa Bay.
Arizona PK vs. Buffalo: What? Arizona lost last week huge to the Jets and they are only a pick’em against the Bills. The 4-0 Bills. Something seems a little strange there.
Minnesota +3.5 @ New Orleans: New Orleans is overrated. Case in point: Minnesota was getting 3.5 on the road from Tennessee last week. I really doubt Tennessee and New Orleans are equal teams.
Baltimore +3 vs. Tennessee: Baltimore looked okay on Monday Night Football last night, but they probably should have won that game. I may shy away here because of that. However, I did hear 3 ESPN NFL analysts say that Tennessee was the best team in the AFC.
