Falcons at Saints (SPREAD: NO -4.5)

“The number is changing rapidly. When we did this segment this morning it was +4.5 Atlanta. I would take the Falcons here. I think the Saints with Taysom Hill are kind of experimenting at quarterback, and I do not like that. The Falcons are coming off a bye with extra time to prepare, and Raheem Morris is not only 3-1, but he’s trying to win the head coaching job. In this division he thinks he can get to a Wild Card spot – he may be wrong. We know Atlanta since Week 6 -- they can move the ball, we don’t question that -- but their defense has allowed fewer than 30 points in five straight games. This is a coaching staff coaching for million dollar contracts here. Raheem Morris wants his second head coaching job, and I feel like the Saints are ‘experimenting’ more than I would be comfortable with. We have an upset one or two every weeks in this league, and I’m going to take the Falcons with the upset win, 28-27.”

Colin's pick: Atlanta +4.5

Eagles at Browns (SPREAD: CLE -3.5)

“Like it? I LOVE IT. Philadelphia is absolutely the play here +3.5. Philadelphia’s head coach, their quarterback, and their practice habits have all been under question this week. They’re getting PULVERIZED in the sports talk capital of the country. Philadelphia had a TOTALLY FOCUSED week. They lost to the Giants, but didn’t commit a turnover, and that Giants defense is way better than Cleveland’s. The Browns have scored 10 or fewer points in four games this year, and only the Jets have fewer. Cleveland struggles when they face better defensive lines because Baker struggles under pressure – that is no longer just an opinion, it’s a FACT. I think Philadelphia with Wentz, Doug Pederson, and the better practice habits beat the Browns 24-20.”

Colin's pick: Philadelphia +3.5

Packers at Colts at (SPREAD: IND -2.5)

“I’ll take the Colts -2.5. Wise guys are split on this, but I get a Colts team who has extra prep – they played on Thursday and I like that. Here’s the game in a nutshell: the Packers defense has only created 7 turnovers this year, the second fewest in the league. What does it mean? Philip Rivers is comfortable. Philip Rivers has only been sacked 8 times this year, fewest in the league. Philip Rivers will be comfortable. Rivers has had a 100+ passer rating in 3 of the last 4 games – he’s comfortable. The Colts defense will not make life comfortable for Aaron Rodgers. They’re number one in total defense, and allow the lowest opponent's passer rating. What does this game mean? Look at the numbers for Philip Rivers. He’s not getting hit, he’s not getting rushed, he’s got a running game, and the Packers don’t take the ball away, meaning they don’t speed the game up for you. A comfortable Philip Rivers beats an uncomfortable Aaron Rodgers. Colts win 24-20.”

Colin's pick: Indianapolis -2.5

Chiefs at Raiders (SPREAD: KC -8.5)

“Loved this number on Monday when it was Kansas City -6.5. It’s now Kansas City -8.5. It’s a little lower number, but I will still take it. Why? Andy Reid is 18-3 off a bye, that's even better than Belichick, and the best in the NFL by far. I got a team coming off a bye who got BEAT the last time they played. The Chiefs offense is not only good, 32 a game, but that’s not considering that the Raiders defense is below average. The Raiders have only sacked the quarterback 11 times this year. Outside of Maxx Crosby, who we had on this week, they have no pass rush. I get a healthy and well-coached team with extra time. There is a major COVID issue right now with the Raiders for the second time this year. I’m going to take the Chiefs by 10. It was my favorite play of the week on Monday, and now it’s my second favorite play, 36-26.”
Colin's pick: Kansas City -8.5

Rams at Bucs (SPREAD: TB -4.5)

“The Number was better earlier in the week, but I’m going to take Tampa Bay -4.5. Something to consider: I’ve bet seven Rams game this year and I’m 6-1. It’s the team I feel best about and I’ve had a very simple solution. Jared Goff as an NFL quarterback I like, I think he’s a ‘B’ to a ‘B+’. But when he’s ‘uncomfortable’ he’s not the same quarterback. He’s 4-0 at home, but only 2-3 on the road. Andrew Whitworth is now on the IR with a knee, WATCH OUT, because this Bucs defense has the second most sacks, have the number one rushing defense, and will force Jared Goff to throw with a BACKUP left tackle. Andrew Whitworth is probably a top 3 tackle in the NFL. With Ronnie Stanley out, he might be the best or second best left tackle in the league. Also something to consider here. If the Saints LOSE on Sunday with Taysom Hill, the Buccaneers watch that game and have extra motivation on Monday to win and make up a game while Drew Brees is out. I like Brady to beat the Rams, 28-23.”
Colin's pick: Tampa Bay -4.5
