New England headed into last week’s bye by running all over Pittsburgh 55-31 as a 5.5-point home favorite to improve to 7-2 straight-up and 5-4 against the spread. The total went way OVER the 42.5-point closing line and it has gone OVER in four of its last four games. It has struggled to cover on the road this season with a 1-3 record ATS.
It’s Monday night, and that means that there is just one more game with which to handicap on the NFL card. The Carolina Panthers will play host to the New England Patriots in this edition of Monday Night Football, and we have some great MNF props covered so you can find an alternative way to beat the NFL betting lines in this one.
The Steelers’ recent winning streak only lasted two games after last Sunday’s 21-18 loss to Oakland as 2.5-point road favorites. They have now fallen to 2-5 on the year both straight-up and against the spread. The total has stayed UNDER in five of the seven games behind an offense that is averaging 17.9 points a game and a defense that is holding teams to an average of 21.9 points.
The New England Patriots squeaked by the New York Jets earlier this year. That is a game that the Jets really feel they should have won. New York gets a second chance at the Patriots this weekend at home. New England is coming off a huge comeback win, while the Jets are coming off a disappointing home loss to Pittsburgh. Let’s examine this AFC East matchup.
The return of Coach Sean Payton after a one-year NFL imposed suspension has made all the difference in New Orleans as the high flying Saints are off to a 5-0 straight-up start and a profitable 4-1 start against the spread. While they are known for their potent offensive attack, the total has stayed UNDER in four of their first five games behind a vastly improved defense.
The New England Patriots haven’t looked the prettiest yet this year, but they are still sporting a perfect 4-0 record. They’re dogs on the road on the NFL betting lines to the Cincinnati Bengals though, and the hosts are hoping to change all of that and to stay in front in the AFC North.
New England is off to a 3-0 straight-up start, but tight wins over Buffalo and the New York Jets as a double-digit favorite as raised some legitimate questions to just how good this team really is. This past Sunday the Patriots looked more themselves in a 23-3 victory over Tampa Bay as 7.5-point home favorites, but that may have been more a product of a Buccaneers’ team that is in complete disarray. The total has stayed UNDER in all three Patriots’ games this year.
Week 3 of the NFL season is here! With all of the games on the docket each and every week, we are going to be zeroing in on just one side or total that we think is the best of the bunch. Join us today, look at the game on Sunday, September 22nd between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the New England Patriots.
A pair of 1-0 teams in the AFC East are going to go to war on the NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football betting festivities, as the New England Patriots play their first home game of the season against the New York Jets.
Tampa Bay finished the 2012 season with a 7-9 record straight up and it was 9-6-1 against the spread. Despite the fact that the Buccaneers play in the same division as Atlanta and New Orleans, they remain more than confident that they can successfully compete for the NFC South title this season. They may want to reevaluate those plans after last Thursday’s 44-16 loss to Baltimore as three-point home favorites in their first preseason game.
