New Orleans Saints versus Buffalo Bills
The Saints come in at 6-2 and one of the hottest teams in the NFL. They are a 2.5 point favorite on the road against the 5-3 Bills. New Orleans won the last meeting between the teams in 2013 as a home favorite. Both teams are “burning hot” at -3.62 on the Team Strength Oscillator. Both teams are high and climbing on the Power Ranking Indicator, at +28 and +26, respectively. One edge for the Saints is they are number one in Team Volatility. This is the deciding factor in a close match up. I see the Saints winning in a tight game decided in the 4th quarter.
Cincinnati Bengals versus Tennessee Titans
This match up features two teams heading in opposite directions. The Bengals enter at 3-5 and a 6 point underdog on the road against the 5-3 Titans. Cincinnati won the last meeting between the teams in 2014 as a home favorite. Not a surprise, the Titans are “burning hot” on the Team Strength Oscillator, while the Bengals are -15.64 and on a downward trend. Tennessee also holds a +19 to +14 edge on the Power Ranking Indicator. The Titans should win this one and cover the spread.
Minnesota Vikings versus Washington Redskins
The Vikings are a 2 point favorite entering this one against a Washington team that is coming off a win on the road against the Seahawks. The Redskins took down the Vikings as the home favorite last season. At 6-2, the Vikings hold decided advantages on both the Power Ranking Indicator (+30 to +10) and “burning hot” versus “average down” on the Team Strength Oscillator. I see the Vikings improving to 7-2 and pushing the Redskins below the .500 mark.
Houston Texans versus Los Angeles Rams
The Rams are a huge 10.5 point favorite over the Texans, who will be without Deshaun Watson, who is out for year following an ACL injury. Looking for a reason to pick the Texans, I can’t find one. On the oscillators, they are “average down” versus “burning hot” in Team Strength and +9 to +25 on the Power Ranking Indicator. This one looks like a blowout in the making and the Texans will have to play excellent just to cover.
Dallas Cowboys versus Atlanta Falcons
There is no doubt that the Dallas Cowboys are coming on strong. At 5-3, they need a win to remain in striking distance of the 8-1 Eagles, who they face next week. Atlanta is at 4-4 and is a 3.5 point favorite at home. The Teams are nearly identical in the Power Ranking Indicator, while Dallas is “burning hot” on the Team Strength Oscillator. A deciding factor could be the status of Ezekiel Elliott. Should be be able to play this weekend, the Cowboys will be the pick. If he is suspended, the Falcons will win and cover.
New York Giants versus San Francisco 49ers
In a match up of two of the worst teams in the NFL, the 1-7 Giants take on the 0-9 49ers. The teams split the last two meetings in 2015 and 2014, both winning as favorites. The Giants are coming off an embarrassing loss to the Rams, showing very little effort. Both teams have a “dead” status on the Team Strength Oscillator and are nearly even on the Power Ranking Indicator. The 49ers are a single point advantage at home and I see them edging the Giants to get their first win of the season.
