It looks like it might be a pretty good weekend for us in WagerWAR. Unfortunately, our opponents have had a monster week, so we have to do even better. Will that happen in Sunday’s late games with a pair of home underdogs?
Let’s take a quick look at a few of these games, keeping in mind that you can wager on them with reduced juice at BetAnySports.
DETROIT at OAKLAND (4:05 PM ET)
WagerWAR Line: Raiders -2.5 (-120)
Total: 51 points
Matthew Stafford’s having a real nice season, averaging well over eight yards an attempt with a nifty 16-4 TD-INT ratio, although I think we’ll see the Lions going more and more away from the run. Maybe that’s okay here, as the Raiders still can’t get together a pass rush (13 sacks) and have snared just three INT’s in seven games. We already know that Detroit doesn’t put a heck of a lot of pressure on the passer, and they are missing a couple of members in the secondary who were there a couple of weeks ago. Oh, and Darius Slay isn’t 100% at the moment. This will be a nice atmosphere for some scoring. OVER.
TAMPA BAY at SEATTLE (4:05 PM ET)
WagerWAR Line: Seattle -4
Total: 51 points
You can’t really be all that “down” on Seattle, but the “12th Man” hasn’t done them much good, as they haven’t covered games at home. We love Russell Wilson, of course, but the interesting thing is that the underdog has covered every Seahawks game this season. And this Tampa Bay defense has been rebuilt by Todd Bowles into the kind of unit that stops the run. That happens to be exactly what Seattle wants and needs to do in order to exceed expectations. TAMPA BAY
CLEVELAND at DENVER (4:25 PM ET)
WagerWAR Line: Browns -4 (-105)
Total: 39 points
Joe Flacco’s numbers were pretty bland. Maybe Brandon Allen, coming in for his first NFL start, can do more to avoid enemy pass rushers. We can’t really say a lot about the Denver offense. But I think they can establish a run against a rather soft Cleveland defensive front (allowing 4.8 ypc). Baker Mayfield has thrown more interceptions than any NFL quarterback, and he’s losing patience with the press. The Browns’ staff may also be getting a little tired of Odell Beckham’s behavior as well. I like DENVER and the UNDER here, as I anticipate a defensive battle.
GREEN BAY at L.A. CHARGERS (4:25 PM ET)
WagerWAR Line: Packers -4
Total: 50 points
This is a strange setup, as the Chargers have gotten used to their home park being populated mostly by fans of the opponent. So this should be a Packer crowd. Green Bay is sizzling right now (at 7-1), but I wonder if they are as good as that record. L.A.’s offensive line is better now that Russell Okung is back in the fold, and they have a chance to establish a running game against a team that gives up 4.8 yards a carry and hardly ever stuffs running plays (30th in league in tackling for loss or no gain). And they’ll be using a new offensive coordinator for this one. Maybe some surprises? The Bolts may have injury concerns, but bookend pass rushers Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram are together again.
