Dylan Fadden:

Falcons -2.5 vs Panthers

12:00 PM CT

I know what you're thinking and yes I am serious. The Panthers are riding high and the Falcons are pissed off. With Dan Quinn's job on the line I expect the Falcons to come out hot AND be able to finish this game off. Matt Ryan will have a big day on a very young Panthers defense.

Cardinals @ Jets O48

12:00 PM CT

The arrival of Hopkins has done wonders for this team and I expect a team that struggled last week to come out hot against against the worst team in the NFL. The weight will mostly be carried by the Cardinals but I'm also expecting veteran QB Joe Flacco to work some of his magic to help hit the over.

Bengals @ Ravens O51.5

12:00 PM CT

Do I have to say anything more than the Ravens are absolutely electric and Joe Burrow throws the ball 60 times a game? This over should hit with ease as long as the Bengals can put some points on the board, and I like my chances with Burrow at the helm in a big game.

100% Confidence Pick:

Cowboys -8.5 vs Giants

3:25 PM CT

The beginning to Mike McCarthy's tenure in Dallas has been less than desirable but expect that to come to an end this week. With this electric offense going up a not so great defense(trying to be nice) the Cowboys will be able to put up plenty of points and should cover the 8.5 with ease. Jerry's World will be a happy place after the game on Sunday.

Matt Harris:

Colts @ Browns U47.5

12:00 PM CT

The Indianapolis Colts have the leagues best defense and should be able to contain Cleveland’s run heavy attack. Indy’s offense isn’t very explosive either, so this should be a very close, very low scoring game in Cleveland.

Jets ML +275 vs Cardinals

12:00 PM CT

The Jets are very bad, but the Cardinals haven’t been much better. Flacco gets the start this week and I’ve got a weird feeling he plays well and leads the Jets to their first win of the year. This is my WEIRD VIBES GAME OF THE WEEK. Yes I am taking a leap of faith here, but hey, sometimes you just have to go with it.

Bengals +12 @ Ravens

12:00 PM CT

Baltimore’s very good, but they do have flaws, especially in pass defense. Burrow should be able to do damage through the air and be able to keep it close against Baltimore’s explosive offense.

100% Confidence Pick:

Texans -6 vs Jaguars

12:00 PM CT

Apparently frustration was starting to boil over between Bill O'Brien and the players before he was fired. Now that he’s gone, the team should be motivated to try and win their first game, especially under Romeo Crennell, one of the most popular assistants in the league. Give me Houston over Jacksonville by double digits while Watson looks to right O'Briens wrongs.

Connor Sheehan:

Cardinals -7 @ Jets

12:00 PM CT

The Cardinals should have no problem beating up on one of the worst teams in the league. Look for Chandler Jones to have a career day. With Joe Flacco starting in his first career game with the Jets and being without first rounder Mehki Becton is a recipe for disaster. Don't overthink this.

Jaguars @ Texans O54.5

12:00 PM CT

Jacksonville and Houston have two of the worst defenses in the league right now. As two of the youngest stars go head to head in a shootout for pride. The over/under being 54.5 is a tough line but the way these offenses have been scoring this year I'm willing to take my chances on the such a high line.

Bengals +12 @ Ravens

12:00 PM CT

Joe Burrow is playing like a top ten QB on a bottom 10 roster. With that being said I don’t see Burrow backing down from his first conference matchup with the Ravens. If you could buy up to 14, then this pick is a lock.

100% Confidence Pick:

Chargers @ Saints O50.5

Monday* 7:15 PM CT

With Michael Thomas coming back this week I think Drew Brees will put the whole league on notice that he is indeed still a great quarterback. Now at full strength, the Saints are looking to run up the score as Justin Herbert and the Chargers look to keep pace. Expect this to be a high scoring affair and a Michael Thomas breakout.
