Cleveland Browns at Cincinnati Bengals – Friday, November 6 at 12:25pm AEST

This will be the second week straight that the Cincinnati Bengals will face a divisional rival. The Bengals came away with a very gritty win last week against AFC North rivals the Pittsburgh Steelers. It took them to a perfect 7-0 and now they will host the Cleveland Browns.

I was surprised last week when flicking through Red zone to see the Browns 20-10 up in the first half versus the Arizona Cardinals. Not long after the Cardinals put up 24 unanswered points and the Browns lost in an ugly fashion. I question other team’s motivation to play the Browns. They are quite frankly a dumpster fire.

Andy Dalton is in his fifth season as an NFL quarter back and so far it seems like a breakout type season. He has thrown for 1992 yards with 15 touchdowns and just 4 interceptions. I believe all these offensive numbers will skyrocket today and the Bengals will bury the Browns early.
Tip: Cincinnati Bengals at the line (-10.5) - $1.92 at CrownBet


Denver Broncos at Indianapolis Colts – Monday, November 9 at 8:25am AEST

I always enjoy this matchup. Peyton Manning the long-time Indianapolis Colt will face off against his old team and new heir apparent Andrew Luck. The Denver Broncos are undefeated and looked very good against Green Bay. In fact Manning and the Broncos were so impressive that I am changing my mind and thoughts concerning Peyton.

I believe that all the negativity and doubters in the media (myself included) has given the 39 year old so much extra motivation to prove everyone wrong and he is doing it. Before last week’s games I would have been leaning towards Andrew Luck and the Colts but Manning looked so good. Even moving around outside the pocket making bootleg throws he looked more like a college QB than a 39 year old veteran.

The real star of the Broncos is that defense. I am now a believer.
Tip: Denver Broncos at the line (-5.0) - $1.92 at CrownBet


Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys – Monday, November 9 at 12:30pm AEST

The NFC East currently looks the shambles.  In saying that the last placed Dallas Cowboys who currently sit at 2-5 are only two games back from the first placed 4-4 New York Giants. Philadelphia and Washington are tied at 3-4. So Dallas are still very much alive in terms of making the post season but this is a must win game for the Romo-less Cowboys.

Philadelphia is coming off a bye and Dallas lost in a tight battle against the Seahawks. There is still a lot of talk of how bad Matt Cassel is at quarterback and even though he finished with just 97 passing yards last week the Cowboys were still right in the game and had a chance to steal it late. Their offensive line is still a force and I think they can grind out a win today.

Chicago Bears at San Diego Chargers –Tuesday, November 10 at 12:30pm AEST

Has there ever been a Monday night football game with two teams more unimpressive than these two. The (2-6) San Diego Chargers host the (2-5) Chicago Bears.

In their last 8 games as favourites Phillip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers are a dismal 1-7 in terms of covering the spread. This is a troubling trend and investing your hard earned cash on a team that just can’t cover as a favourite is going to be a very uncomfortable night for you.

Chicago’s head coach John Fox has experience with the AFC West teams from his time in Denver. One of the only positive trends I can find for this game is the Chicago Bears are currently undefeated (2-0) against AFC West teams (Raiders and Chiefs) both of these wins came when Chicago was an underdog. Just like tonight’s game.
Tip: Chicago Bears at the line (+4.0) - $1.94 at Sportsbet
