I have 3 Best bets this week.
Line: New Orleans -3
The Saints are riding high after getting their head coach back from his year long suspension. They still have the offense that can score at any time from anywhere. The defense needs some work, but they can do the job for the most part. Tampa Bay is one of the worst teams in football and I just don't see them keeping up with the Saints in this contest. This is the right team at the right line.
PROGnosis: New Orleans -3
Minnesota at ChicagoLine: Chicago -5.5
Minnesota will only go so far as their 3rd year quarterback will take them, which is to say if they want to go to the playoffs, they need to contact Ticketmaster. (Airfare not included in the cost of the ticket.) What a waste to have the best running back in football behind a quarterback who makes so many foolish mistakes. Last week they were dominated on both lines of scrimmage, supposedly the strength of the team. Chicago looks to be a solidly average team.
This game is being played outdoors where the Vikings have had a terrible time the past few years. The Vikings have lost 11 of their past 12 road games against the Bears and this doesn't look like the time for an offensive explosion from either team. Last season the two games they played had point totals of 38 and 35, with both games going under. The Best Bet here is under 42.
San Francisco at Seattle
Line: Seattle -3
PROGnosis: Under 42
Line: Seattle -3
This should be a great game between two of the best teams in all of football. Seattle has been very tough at home. Last season they won every game at home and covered 7 of them. The 49ers are the team to beat this season in the NFC and I think they should win this game outright. They have enough offense to take control and keep control, of this game.
PROGnosis: San Francisco +3
