Kansas City Chiefs vs. Philadelphia Eagles Week 2 NFL Point Spread Prediction from Matt Fargo: September 17th 2017

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Week 2 NFL Prediction: Philadelphia +5.5 points (September 17th 2017)

Kansas City is coming off an awesome performance at New England last Thursday as it dominated the scoreboard and the stat sheet as it outgained the Patriots by 166 total yards. That memory is fresh in the minds of the public and the linesmakers knew they needed to adjust this line based on that opener so the value is riding with the underdog. While the Chiefs looked unbeatable against New England, a lot of that had to do with the play of the Patriots which were out of synch on offense with a plethora of new faces and in-game injuries on both sides of the ball. You cannot overlook the fact that the Chiefs committed 15 penalties for 139 yards. Philadelphia is coming off a solid win at Washington as it benefitted from four Redskins turnovers but still won the yardage battle by 92 yards. The Eagles possess a nice balance on offense and a play-making defense which makes them dangerous every week. Coming off a divisional win like that could cause a possible letdown but the fact that it is just Week Two negates any sort of letdown talk plus the Eagles have won 15 of their last 20 follow up Redskins games. Eagles head coach Doug Pedersen knows the Chiefs and their tendencies after spending numerous years under Andy Reid so it will be difficult for him to get outcoached here. The road team is an incredible 46-14 ATS in the last 60 Kansas City games and going back, the Chiefs are 1-7 ATS in their last eight games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous game.

New Orleans Saints vs. Minnesota Vikings Week 1 NFL Monday Night Over-Under Pick from Jimmy Boyd: September 11th 2017

New Orleans Saints vs. Minnesota Vikings
Week 1 NFL Monday Night Over-Under Pick: Under 48 points (September 11th 2017)

A lot of people just instantly look to take the OVER in any game that involves the Saints. However, historically Drew Bree’s and Sean Payton’s offense hasn’t been as lethal on the road. Another big part of that is they have had no choice but to try and outscore teams with how bad their defense has been.

I really thought New Orleans was going to take a bigger step forward than they did on the defensive side of the ball last year. While the numbers weren’t great, I saw a lot of good things in the first year under defensive coordinator Dennis Allen. This could be the year they breakout. The addition of 1st round pick Marshon Lattimore at corner should help improve a secondary that ranked dead last against the pass.

You also have to factor in that the Vikings aren’t a team that figures to be an offensive juggernaut. They ranked just 28th with 315.1 ypg and 23rd in scoring at 20.4. They were also in the bottom half of the league in 3rd down conversions. They should be better now that Bradford has had time to really learn the offense. Plus they improved the offensive line. Still, Zimmer is more of a ball control guy that wants to keep his defense fresh.

Hard to blame him given how well his stop units have played both here and previous when he was the defensive coordinator with the Bengals. Minnesota suffered all kinds of injuries on this side of the ball last year and still finished 3rd in yards allowed (314.9 ypg) and 6th in scoring (19.2 ppg). You can bet he’ll have his unit fired up for this one. Let’s also not forget they get a shot at going against their former star in Adrian Peterson.

I have a hard time seeing the Saints changing up their offense, but maybe they want to control the ball a little more. Why else would you bring in a guy like AP, who needs his touches to be effective and isn’t a huge threat in the passing game.

As you can see, I think defense will be the story line in this one. UNDER is an impressive 17-5 in all Vikings games in the 1st half of the season since Zimmer took over and 17-5 in Minnesota’s last 22 home games in the first two weeks of the season. Take the UNDER!

Oakland Raiders vs. Tennessee Titans Week 1 Over-Under Pick from Sean Murphy: September 10th 2017

| September 9, 2017

Oakland Raiders vs. Tennessee Titans
Week 1 NFL Over-Under Pick: Under 51 (September 10th 2017)

We’ve cashed plenty of tickets playing the ‘over’ in games involving the Raiders over the last couple of years but I won’t hesitate to switch gears as they travel to face the Titans in the 2017 opener.

These two teams are almost mirror images of one another heading into the season, hence the tiny pointspread separating them. While both offenses have a ton of upside, I’m not convinced we’ll see them explode right out of the gates.

I’m not sure that either defense gets enough credit. The Raiders ‘D’ in particular has been overshadowed by the flashy offense, which only gets flashier with the addition of RB Marshawn Lynch.

A lot of so-called experts have the Titans making the leap to the postseason this year but I say not so fast. This is a tough opening week matchup, and they know it. Look for the Tennessee defense to step up and turn a few heads, helping to keep this one ‘under’ the lofty total. Take the under (10*).
