Best Bet of the Week (Season Record 3-3)
[loser] Indianapolis at Tennessee (-2.5) – Titans have been turning the ball over a lot, but Colts are 28th in the league in sacks, so Mariota should be playing in a relatively clean pocket. Colts are allowing over 117 yards per game rushing, which means Murray should have a great game. Indy is 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 road games. Cousin Sal is going on a shopping spree again, buying the 0.5 point here, placing $910 to win $700 on the Titans.
Other Best Bets (Season record 8-4)
[winner] San Diego (+6.5) at Atlanta – Chargers have 10 days to prepare for this game, playing a Falcons team that just got beat up by the Seahawks. Atlanta typically play down to their competition, 4 of their last 6 games have been decided by 7 points or less, and 0 for their last 6 home games ATS as a favorite. San Diego is 8-1 in their last 9 road games ATS. Sal’s putting $400 on the Chargers this week.
[winner] Cleveland at Cincinnati (-9.5) – Cleveland is apparently gunning for another first overall pick this year. Bengals are 14-6 ATS in their last 20 games following a loss. Browns are 0-6 in their last 6 games against the AFC North. A.J. Green should go off this week. Sal’s putting $500 on Cincy this week.
