|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|
|Chicago Bears||Tampa Bay Buccaneers||4-1||7-1||46.5||-160||-3||0||0||0||-160||0||46.5||-160||-3||0||0||46.5||-161||-3||46.5||-155||-3||Bears -3 - Chicago found a way to get it done on the road against the Cardinals last week, struggling on offense and relying on its revamped defense. They get the Bucs, coming off a short week, back at home and sit at 2-1. Tampa will face its first real defense after seeing the Saints, Eagles, and Steelers and also has to travel on a short week. Chicago has a ridiculous 12.4% sack percentage this year, almost double last year, and you can thank Jon Gruden for that. Take the home team in a close match-up between two surprise teams.|
|Minnesota Vikings||Los Angeles Rams||2-3||3-4||50||240||0||0||0||49||240||0||49||240||0||0||0||49.5||220||0||49.5||240||0||Vikings +7 - Minnesota? Not good. Last week against Buffalo was a terrible display of football and what do you get for a bounce back? The best team in football on the road. The optics don't look great, but the Rams won't have Aquib Talib and possibly, Marcus Peters, both hurt. Getting a full score on a short week is worth the gamble.|
|Houston Texans||Indianapolis Colts||3-2||5-3||47.5||100||-1||0||0||47||100||0||47.5||100||-1||0||0||47||-103||-1||47.5||112||-1.5||Texans/Colts U 46.5 - Both teams just don't look good on offense. Andrew Luck still looks hurt and Jacoby Brissett took over hail mary duties last week. The Texans O has struggled mightly and needed a late second half burst to even make their game against the Giants interesting. The Colts have started the season 3-for-3 in unders and have gone under the total in 10-of-11. It's only been ten years since the over hit in this matchup when playing in Indianapolis.|
