Top 5 Pick ‘Em
Season Record: 6-9
Los Angeles Chargers -10.5 (vs. San Francisco) – Jimmy Garoppolo‘s season ending injury is very unfortunate, but this team had a slim chance of making the playoffs anyway. C.J. Beathard now gets the start and will lead a 49ers team that will be without their two best offensive players for the rest of the year.
Philadelphia -4 (@ Tennessee) – Carson Wentz is set to make his second start after returning from his ACL injury. He was fine last week in his season debut, and rest assured that the rust is shaken off. Don’t forget that the Eagles did just win the Super Bowl and only got better in the off season.
New York Giants +3.5 (vs. New Orleans) – I love the chance to take an underdog at home — even if it is Eli Manning. The Saints defense is atrocious and that is exactly why their two wins were by one score. The last team to have the ball in this matchup will be the victor.
Cleveland +3.5 (@ Oakland) – It’s hard to admit it, but the Browns are the better team in this matchup and the slight coaching advantage for the Raiders on Sunday will not be enough. It’s Baker Mayfield time.
Chicago -3 (vs. Tampa Bay) – Is the honeymoon in Tampa Bay over yet? Yes, and it’s overdue. Ryan Fitzpatrick has the second most interceptions through three games and going into Chicago to face the Bears will be the hardest matchup yet.
Top Survivor Picks
Los Angeles Chargers (vs. San Francisco) – See above.
Green Bay (vs. Buffalo) – It’s unlikely we see the Bills from last week again this season. Especially in Lambeau Field.
Jacksonville (vs. New York Jets) – The Jaguars are the third most popular pick. Stay away from a team that struggles so much to score points.
