Rookie Carson Wentz and the Eagles helped the rest of the NFL realize that the Vikings have their problems on offense. Let’s look at the Vikings first loss and some of the other things that we learned and offer up an early NFL pick.

 

The Vikings Are Human!

So what did we learn in week 7? We learned that the Vikings—a team which had covered 18 of its L20 games—may not be the impenetrable force we thought, and that Minnesota (11/1 to win Super Bowl at Heritage—now offering a 50% Cash Bonus for new signups—is sort of offensively challenged (1,513 Total Yards, #32 in NFL), especially with a woozy Sam Bradford at the helm. So maybe the best-betting approach with the Vikings moving forward is with the Under (4-2)? And respect to the staunch Eagles Defense (15.6 ppg, #3 in NFL) for creating 4 Vikings TO’s and bringing the hottest team in the NFL down to earth.

We also learned Landry Jones plays like Landry Jones and that the Pittsburgh may have great skill guys but without a pigskin distributor, the talented Steelers (4-3) will again have to fight to win their down AFC North and that Ben Roethlisberger (Torn Meniscus, Week-to-Week) better get healthy real quick. On Sunday, the Patriots dissected Pittsburgh at Heinz Field, covering ATS as 7-point favorites, 27-16.

 

 

Bills, Redskins See 4-Game Win Streaks Vaporize

The Buffalo Bills 4-0 SU/ATS run since making Anthony Lynn Offensive Coordinator came to an end in a 30-27 loss at Miami (BUF -2½), while the Washington Redskins 4-game win streak ended in Detroit where the Lions play with the Pride the Lion in The Wizard Of Oz so desperately sought. The Lions won 20-17 as 1-point underdogs and won their 3rd straight to improve to 4-3. We see you Golden. And the Baltimore Ravens (3-4 SU) proved again to be one of the hardest teams in the NFL to figure out—except that they struggle to score 2nd Half points (0, 13, 0, 21, 6, 13, 3), averaging 8.0 points in the 2nd Half and only 5.83 if you toss out the 21 scored against Oakland.

So, AFC North survivors Cincinnati (3-4 SU)—31-17 winners against Cleveland—is really lucky Roethlisberger is injured, the Ravens can’t score and have a hobbled QB and that the Browns (2-4 ATS) will always be there for them. And last but not least, the Raiders continued to prove they’re better on the Road (4-0 SU) than at Home (1-2). The six teams with the worst ATS records dating back to last season are the Titans (6-16-1, 27.3%), Ravens (7-14-2, 33.3%) and Browns, 49ers and Dolphins, whom are all 8-15-0 ATS (34.8%).
