Dolphins (4-3) at Texans (4-3)

Opening line: Texans -7.5

The Texans may be on a four-game winning streak, but they will be worried about their weaknesses at covering the spreads. Still, the Dolphins are historically still just 1-7 against the Texans, so expect them not to come in too confident. According to The World Sports Network the Dolphins are still without their franchise player, Ryan Tannehill, due to an injury.

Jets (3-4) at Bears (3-3)

Opening line: Bears -6

The Bears are not exactly the team you want to be betting on because of their risky approach to the game especially when playing in the AFC East. The Jets are also just 2-7 in the NFC since 2016 and 0-10 in the last ten matches.

Seahawks (3-3) at Lions (3-3)

Opening line: Lions -2.5

Seahawks are always all over the place when they play as the underdogs. The Lions on the other hands have been a very solid team to play on, covering 7 in their last 9. They are 5-1 ATS this year.

Eagles (3-4) vs. Jaguars (3-4) in London

Opening line: Eagles -3

London games have become simple to predict; the favorite almost always takes it all home. On paper, this looks good for the Eagles, but you can never overlook the prowess in a team of the  Jaguars’ caliber, especially with the Eagles sitting at 2-5 ATS, which is a really bad place.

Buccaneers (3-3) at Bengals (4-3)

Opening line: Bengals -6

The Bengals are looking at 7-2-1 straight-up last 10 matches against NFC opponents. The bad news for them is that the Buccaneers haven’t succumbed in Cincinnati going on 30 years now.

Browns (2-4-1) at Steelers (3-2-1)

Opening line: Steelers -7.5

The Browns are at 3-0-1 ATS last four meet-ups with the Steelers and 5-2 overall this season. The Steelers are a little worse for wear in this one.

Broncos (3-4) at Chiefs (6-1)

Opening line: Chiefs -9

Sitting at 7-0 ATS, the Chiefs are everyone’s dream bet this season. The Broncos have been on the Losing end against Kansas City in 6 straight games.

Ravens (4-3) at Panthers (4-2)

Opening line: Hard to say

Panthers have been on a roll, winning 6 straight against AFC rivals. Ravens haven’t enjoyed the same luck against NFC teams, sitting at 3-7 straight-up and ATS in the last two clashes.

Redskins (4-2) at Giants (1-5)

Opening line: Redskins -1

The Giants are not good at the spread but are 2-8 straight-up in the last 10. The Redskins are not any better, with 2-8 in the last 8 against opponents in the division.

Packers (3-2-1) at Rams (7-0)

Opening line: Rams -8.5

The undefeated Rams are 4-3 ATS this season. The Packers have been on the losing end away from home on four consecutive times.

Colts (2-5) at Raiders (1-5)

Opening line: Colts -1.5

The Colts never do well in the West Coast. The Raiders are 2-4 ATS this season.

Patriots (5-2) at Bills (2-5)

Opening line: Patriots -13

The Bills are 6-3-1 ATS at home since last season. The Patriots, on the other hand, have headlined the league for a decade.

Saints (5-1) at Vikings (4-2-1)

Opening line: Vikings -2.5

Minnesota has beaten Saints twice in the last 13 months, but the latter is ridiculously good in the month of October.

49ers (1-6) at Cardinals (1-6)

This should be easy on the Cardinals, seeing as they have gone 7-0 against their erstwhile rivals, a route starting way back in 2015.
