|Team||Opp||Last5||H/A||STR||WG O/U||WG ML||WG Spread||Caesars O/U||Caesars ML||Caesars Spread||CGT O/U||CGT ML||CGT Spread||BreakDown|
|Houston Texans||New York Giants||3-2||6-2||42||-265||-6||42||-260||-6||41.5||-260||-6||41.5||-260||-6||41.5||-260||-6||42||-250||-6||41.5||-243||-6||Team Total Over, up to 27: The Texans haven't fired on all cylinders, but they also haven't played at home yet. With a healthy Will Fuller and hopefully DeAndre Hopkins, look for DeShaun Watson to finally get on track. The Giants allowed 20 points to whatever offense the Cowboys had last week on the road and their offense isn't good enough to keep the Texans' D off the field. Look for a breakout from Houston.|
|Philadelphia Eagles||Indianapolis Colts||4-1||5-3||47.5||-280||-6.5||47.5||-270||-6.5||47.5||-275||-6.5||47.5||-280||-6.5||47.5||-280||-6.5||47||-278||-6.5||47.5||-267||-6.5||-6.5, Up to -7 :This is stealing. The Colts are not good, plain and simple. They're win over the lifeless Redskins in week 2 is an overreaction to this line. Carson Wentz is back and the defense of Philly will be better at home. Under a score game is exactly the number want to look for out of the Eagles.|
|New York Jets||Cleveland Browns||1-4||2-6||41||170||-3||41||155||-3||41||155||-3||41||155||-3||41||165||-3||38.5||148||-3.5||39.5||157||-3.5||+3: Someone sound the alarms. The Browns are favored in a football game. A perfect time to take the points with the Jets at +3. Sam D'Arnold rebounded after a rought start in Detroit, coming back from an early pick six and getting a win. He had a rough week against the Dolphins, but still threw for 334 yards with several drops. The Browns are the Browns. At home, on a short week, after a tough loss doesn't scream take the home team. Cleveland has given up an average of 25.5 completions in its two games and the Jets are going to rely on their passing game in this one.|
