With playoff implications plentiful in week 10, Our Chiefs Blitz Podcast host, Lou Montagna offers his take on this weekend’s point spreads. Though the Kansas City Chiefs are off this week, the Baltimore Ravens, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Los Angeles Chargers have big home games on Sunday.
INDIANAPOLIS +1.5 vs NEW ENGLAND in Frankfurt
Pats offense is non-existent, they average less than 17 points per game. The Colts are the only team that has scored at least 20 points in every contest this year. Jonathan Taylor is getting his feet under him and will carry the load, along with Zack Moss.
TAKE THE COLTS minus 1.5
CLEVELAND +6 @ BALTIMORE
Ravens have had their way with two consecutive NFC opponents dominating the Lions and Seahawks 75-9 combined. This is a division game, so familiarity and the Browns defense will keep this close. Don’t be surprised by an outright ugly win for the Dawg Pound.
TAKE THE BROWNS +6
JACKSONVILLE +3 vs SAN FRANCISCO
Jags are the hottest team in the league, winning 5 straight. The extended trip to London brought this team together and now off a bye, they’re home dogs. The Niners are having injury issues overall and the QB’s confidence has to be shaken losing 3 in a row and turning the ball over. Give me the better QB plus 3 at home.
TAKE THE JAGS +3
DALLAS -17 vs NY GIANTS
Cowboys usually do a great job coming off a loss, especially to bad teams struggling to score. Enter 3rd string undrafted rookie Tommy DeVito and the Giants. The defense loves to roll up stats in these situations and it will be an avalanche to extreme to overcome. I hate laying the wood.
TAKE THE ‘BOYS -17
DETROIT -3 @ LA CHARGERS
I really think the Chargers are overvalued here. They haven’t done much to impress offensively and the defense beat up on a below-average offensive line against the Jets. Meanwhile, the Lions are coming off a bye and they get David Montgomery back from injury. This should make the offense more consistent. I typically stay away from road favorites, but SoFi typically gets taken over by visiting fans. Detroit has a legitimate chance of being the #1 seed in the NFC.
TAKE THE LIONS -3
Leave me your thoughts.
