NFL – (253) MIAMI at (254) BUFFALO 1:00 ET CBS (side and total)
Each of these division rivals is off a quality outright upset. Miami won because of a suffocating second half defense and Buffalo made good use of a +2 turnover margin. The Dolphins appear to have the better talent and have been flipped from +1 to -1.5. The problem with backing Miami is recent 1-3 SU and ATS records with the Bills and a 6-17 ATS mark off an AFC East upset victory. The total has also been adjusted from 44.5 to 43 and that fits the trend in this series which is 6-1-1 UNDER in the past eight meetings. Betting Trend – 78 percent on Miami to cover and 63 percent on the Under
NFL – (255) JACKSONVILLE at (256) WASHINGTON 1:00 ET CBS
Jacksonville was blanked in Philadelphia in the second half and Washington might has well have been in 17-6 loss in Houston. The Jaguars offense is continually behind in down and distance, which chokes off drives and the Redskins had 372 yards of offense and never found the end zone. This has led to the total sinking two digits to 43. Betting Trend – 57 percent on the Over
NFL – (257) DALLAS at (258) TENNESSEE 1:00 ET FOX
All things considered, the Dallas defense held up rather well, allowing 28 points to San Francisco in large part because the offense had four turnovers. Whether the Cowboys defense will continue to play this well is a question mark, especially on the road and the total has gone from 47.5 to 49.5. Tennessee is 15-5 OVER at home after outgaining previous opponent by 100 or more total yards. Betting Trend – 59 percent on the Over
NFL – (259) ARIZONA at (260) N.Y. GIANTS 1:00 ET FOX (side and total)
On Sunday night, the side and total was released on this NFC contest before anyone had a chance to witness these teams play. New York was at -1.5 with a total of 45.5, but after football bettors got a good look at both, they rushed to make wagers. The Giants looked they were not ready for the regular season to start and were derailed by Detroit 35-14. Arizona showed gumption with a fourth quarter comeback and iced the win over San Diego late. These factors directly correlate to the Cardinals now as 2.5-point favorites. With how discombobulated Eli Manning looked again on offense and the Redbirds defense, the total has sunk to 43. Betting Trend – 91 percent on Arizona to cover and 94 percent on the Under
NFL – (267) ST. LOUIS at (268) TAMPA BAY 4:05 ET FOX
Both these NFC offenses were shoddy in their first outings of the new season. St. Louis had a bit of an excuse, being forced to use third-string quarterback Austin Davis because of injury. Josh McCown never looked comfortable last week in the loss to Carolina until late. Tampa Bay is up from -3.5 to -5 and the Rams are 0-6 ATS away against the NFC. Betting Trend – 82 percent on Tampa Bay to cover
