St. Louis is gonna put up a fight in Chicago today, but it won’t be an SEC bore fest. Instead, the air campaign will make Libya look like a hot air balloon race. The Rams are 9th in passing defense giving up 271.5 ypg so far this season. Cutler may like to spread the receptions to both his own receivers and the opposing secondary, but Chicago will be leaning on him nonetheless to keep putting up yards and points through the air due to a close game that won’t be putting away the Rams and the lack of Matt Forte in the backfield.
The Pick: Jay Cutler (10/1)
Who will record the most Rushing Yards in the 1pm games?
CJ Spiller (7/2)
Maurice Jones-Drew (5/1)
Reggie Bush (6/1)
Trent Richardson (6/1)
DeMarco Murray (7/1)
Frank Gore (8/1)
Adrian Peterson (9/1)
BenJarvus Green-Ellis (9/1)
Chris Johnson (10/1)
Doug Martin (10/1)
The Dolphins have yet to give the keys completely to Mr. Tannenhill and with the Jets giving up 4.8 ypc and 130.5 ypg so far this season, why not unleash the former New Orleans Saints backup running back? That and Miami will want to kill as much clock and keep Saint Tebow from taking the field. That and Buffalo has been unable to stop a good running back since the Bush I administration, so take the double team hedge.
The Pick: Reggie Bush (6/1) and Trent Richardson (6/1)
ATL vs. SD – Player to score first TD in the game?
The Atlanta goal line offense has been an eye sore even with semi-Mike Alstott impressionist Micheal Turner in the backfield. And with Ryan Mathews just getting back onto the field, so the running games (already not the staple to either offense) will be even less of a factor. White and Jones combine for 18 targets of Matt Ryan’s 36 attempts. That and I can’t name a San Diego receiver worthy of Google-ing. Take the triple hedge.
The Pick: Antonio Gates (15/2), Julio Jones (15/2), Roddy White (8/2).
Total Interceptions – Peyton Manning (DEN)
The payoff on this one isn’t exactly in Uncle Scrooge McDuck territory, but a combination of Manning’s INT fest in Atlanta last week, the pressure Houston will put on Denver’s O-Line protection (Houston is ranked 6th in sacks) and Houston’s 9th ranking in interceptions means a potential turnover feast in Denver.
The Pick: Over 0.5 (-270)
