Vikings -4 vs KC
Coming off a bye week, the Vikings are 2-2. After getting beat down by SF week 1 – a loss that now seems like it occurred ages ago – they’ve been solid, grabbing double digit wins vs Detroit and SD and losing by 3 to Denver.
Kansas City, on the other hand, is 1-4 and was struggling to move the ball before losing their best player for the season. I think Minnesota wins this game comfortably by at least a touchdown. I’d suggest parlaying this with the Jets moneyline.
Cinci (-3) @ Buffalo
Have to ride the red hot Bengals here. The Bills are will end up starting E.J. Manuel alongside a hurt Shady McCoy. The Bills have a highly touted defense, but in reality they aren’t great versus the pass, just very stingy against the run. I love Andy Dalton ($5700) in daily fantasy leagues, and think it’s a smart move to rotate AJ, Eifert, Marvin Jones in your stacks with Dalton.
Carolina (+7) @ Seattle
Clearly the odds-makers are taking the fact that the Seahawks are 4-0 vs the Panthers into consideration here. However, the general attitude/makeup of the Seahawks has changed. This is no longer the “Legion of Boom” that we’ve grown accustomed to.
I’m a Russell Wilson fan, but it appears as if some people in the locker room are not invested in him, leading to a bit of a mutiny. I mean, come on, guy, you’re dating one of pop music’s biggest sex symbols. Have some coitus. Earn some respect.
Last weeks loss will either wake these guys up, or be a complete kick in their balls. Either way, I’ll bet on “Analytical Ron” to keep this one close.
I like Carolina off a bye to control the clock and keep this one close. They are also a nice moneyline if you’re looking for an upset, so keep that in mind if you’re trying to put together a juicy parlay.
