This is the last week of byes for this NFL season and starting next week we resume with the full regalia of games. Fortunately, having fewer choices has not hurt us when it comes to making selections.
After another winning week for NFL picks, we have moved out to 18-7-1, 72%, against the oddsmakers releases on totals. Obviously, your humble handicapper is pleased with the results and so are readers that are playing at some the A-rated sportsbooks that are showcased here.
After going over the NFL odds like a Washington Post reporter, here are this week’s choices.
After finishing 4th in points allowed in 2016, the New York Giants defense is part of the issue why this team is having such an abysmal 1-8 campaign. The G-Men are all the way down to 28th in permitting 26.4 points a game and there effort could be charitably described as non-caring. In particular, the Giants defenders are giving numerous big plays. With Kansas City having game-breakers like Tyreek Hill, Kareem Hunt, and Travis Kelce, the total of 45 would seem in jeopardy. Though the Giants offense is baneful, the Chiefs are still conceding 23.1 PPG, which leads to OVER play.
