All good things have to come to an end and last week was my first losing week of the year doing this article, nonetheless, still a very stellar 17-6-1 ATS mark. And it is time to take a look at NFL odds for this week's false favorites and top dogs.


Thought I had another winner for those reading this article, but San Diego could not score from Denver the two-yard line on first and goal, trailing 27-19 as six-point underdogs.

Thus, this week we try and start a new winning streak for our NFL picks and when looking at the at A-rated Intertops, where you should check out great first-time bonus sign ups, I like my chances against the NFL betting odds significantly better than last week.


Top Dog - Philadelphia in a Tussle Over Giants

Though they were being outgained, Philadelphia held a 23-13 lead in the fourth quarterback at Dallas, but could not make it hold up. Two of the Eagles three losses have come against teams who pounded the ball right at them in Washington and the Cowboys, but with the New York Giants last in the NFL in rush attempts at 21 per game and 29th in yards per carry (3.3), cannot forecast the G-Men having great success versus the Philly defense. Next, let's consider Philadelphia's confidence level in New Jersey, where they are 8-1 SU and ATS, with six outright underdog wins. Make the Eagles a Top Dog for you week 9 NFL picks.

False Favorite - San Diego Phony Favorite at Home

Even after the loss to Denver, Philip Rivers was talking playoffs about his San Diego team, which is 3-5. His enthusiasm is based in part on having home games against Tennessee, Miami, and Tampa Bay this month. However, the Chargers at -5 appears too high. The Titans have won three of four and Marcus Mariota's confidence in throwing has increased, as Tennessee is averaging 43 more yards per game passing in their last three outings, compared to the first five contests and San Diego is 24th against the pass. Lastly, time to consider the Bolts as home favorite, where they are 1-7 ATS, leading me to think San Diego is a false favorite.

False Favorite - Total in Jets/Dolphins Tilt Going the Wrong Way

With both New York and Miami scoring less than 21 points a contest, I totally get why the total slipped from 45 to 44. Yet, when getting a rake and moving below the top soil, we discover the Dolphins are averaging 26.2 points per game at Hard Rock Stadium, while the Jets have given up 28.4 PPG in five road assignments, which could put us way past the total. My advice, don't be caught singing Beck's lyrics, "I'm a loser baby..." and instead play the Over, making you feel like Weezer's song, 'The Greatest Man that Ever Lived'.
