Top 5 Pick ‘Em
Tennessee +6.5 (at Houston) – Houston needs to show some life on offense before you can reliably choose it to cover any spread. The loss of J.J. Watt is a huge blow to the defense as well.
Denver -3 (at Tampa Bay) – The Denver defense is elite, no surprise. Jameis Winston will have his hands full.
Jacksonville +2.5 (vs. Indianapolis) – Blake Bortles is a much better quarterback at home. Indianapolis has underperformed thus far and are is currently ranked 28th in offense.
Seattle -1.5 (at New York Jets) – The Jets are ranked in the bottom quintile for both offense and defense. Russell Wilson may be injured, but the Seattle defense is at the top of the league.
Top Survivor Pick
Cincinnati (vs. Miami) – A must-win game for Cincinnati, which cannot fall to 1-3 before its road journeys to Dallas and New England.
Houston (vs. Tennessee) – See above.
