1. San Francisco 49ers (-9) vs. Buf – The Bills come in injured, especially across the offensive line, and were annihilated a week ago by the Patriots 52-28 IN Buffalo. The 49ers are one of the premier teams in football and virtually unbeatable at home under Jim Harbaugh.
The 49ers will easily cover the point spread and win by double digits.
2. Pittsburgh Steelers (-3.5) vs. Phi – The Steelers are getting healthy on D at the right time and coming off a bye week. The Eagles held on vs. the Giants but those turnover issues will rear their ugly head in Pittsburgh.
Look for Big Ben to lead the Steelers to a 7-10 point win.
3. Houston Texans (-9.5) vs. NYJ – There’s a chance the Jets could lose the rest of their games this season. It’s a small chance, but they’re likely finishing 4-12 or 5-11. Their 3rd loss will come on MNF when the Texans steamroll them in front of a national audience.
4. Tennessee Titans (+5.5) vs. Min – See money line bet.
Cincinnati Bengals (-4) vs. Mia – The Dolphins gave the Cards quite a scare, but that won’t carry over this week. Cincy is playing very well and will win by a TD at home.
Denver Broncos (+7) vs. NE – The Broncos are getting better each week and currently sitting at .500. Look for Peyton Manning, who always plays the Patriots tough in the regular season, to keep this one close to the end.
Indianapolis Colts (+7) vs. GB – The Packers come off an emotional game to face the Colts a week after the team found out its head coach has Leukemia. Expect Sunday to be emotional. Green Bay also faces the Texans a week from now so this could be a trap game.
Money line bet
Tennessee Titans (+5.5) vs. Min – Everyone is feeling great about the Vikings after they beat the 49ers and Lions in consecutive weeks. We expect a letdown this week. Look for veteran QB Matt Hasselback to lead the Titans into Minnesota and pull out a 7 point win.
