The Giants’ four-game winning streak came to an abrupt end this past Sunday with a last second 24-21 loss to Dallas as 2.5-point home favorites. The loss dropped them to 4-7 straight-up on the year and put a serious dent in their NFC East title hopes after bouncing back from a woeful 0-6 start. New York is also 4-7 against the spread and the total has stayed UNDER in three of their last five games.
The 49ers are a solid playoff team in the NFC at 6-4 straight-up, but a two-game losing streak has put a major dent in their plans for a third-straight NFC West Division title with Seattle sitting in the lead at 10-1. Last Sunday they lost to New Orleans 23-20 on a last second field goal as 3.5-point road underdogs after coming up just short in a 10-9 loss to Carolina the week before as six-point home favorites. San Francisco has still been a great team to bet on with a 6-1 record against the spread in its last seven games. The total has stayed UNDER in their last two games.
The Denver Broncos are coming off of their first loss of the season, and you know that they are going to want to rebound and rebound in a hurry. Their foe on Sunday is the Washington Redskins at Mile High.
The much anticipated return of second-year quarterback Robert Griffin III from offseason knee surgery has not gone as planned through the Redskins’ first four games with just one straight-up win against three losses. They are also 1-3 against the spread with the total evenly split at 2-2 in their first four games. The good news is that Washington did go into last week’s bye fresh off a 24-14 victory over Oakland as a 3.5-point favorite on the road.
The Redskins are coming off a short week and a long Monday night against Philadelphia in which they lost their season opener 33-27 as three-point favorites at home. This game got out of hand early as Washington had no answer for Chip Kelly’s high octane offense that ran 53 plays while scoring 26 points in the first half. The total went well OVER the 51.5-point line.
The Chip Kelly era will get underway in Philadelphia on Monday night after a 4-12 campaign in 2012 ended Andy Reid’s 14-year tenure as head coach. Kelly brings his fast-paced, up tempo style of play to the NFL that helped make Oregon a national power at the collegiate level. With players like Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson in the Eagles’ starting line-up the anticipation for a return to big play capability is running high.
The Pittsburgh Steelers didn’t have a great first week of the preseason by any stretch of the imagination, as they were called out by their head coach and put together a dismal showing. Now, they have a chance to redeem themselves in their second preseason game of the campaign against the Washington Redskins.
