Look for LaDainian Tomlinson and the Jets to have a big day in the Motor City.
Wins over Washington and St. Louis do not mean the Detroit Lions are a competent NFL team. The way in which commentators and analysts have gushed about the Lions this past week is good news for bettors. All the hype and praise over a 2-5 team has managed to make the Jets just four-point favorites for their trip to the Motor City on Sunday.
Calvin Johnson is good and Ndamukong Suh is going to be great but two players do not make an NFL franchise. New York enters this game on the back of a dreadful offensive display last week against the Packers. Rex Ryan will take particular care to turn the offense around this week to prevent any locker-room disputes.
I expect LaDainian Tomlinson and Santonio Holmes to both step up on Sunday. Bet on the New York Jets to win big with Sports Interaction.
Fans of high-powered offenses should tune in to the Chargers trip to Houston this Sunday. Philip Rivers leads the most exciting offense in the NFL into Reliant Stadium for a meeting with the Texans. Both of these teams know how to put up big yardage in a hurry.
San Diego may have an inferior record to Houston but they possess a clear advantage on defense. The Chargers have shut down opponents for most of the year while the Texans defense has only played well against Indianapolis. San Diego have showed that they can cut down on the errors that cost them several close games this season. Look for more improvement this weekend. Bet on the San Diego Chargers as three-point favorites with Sports Interaction.
The Eagles welcome the Colts to Philadelphia on Sunday and they have a special treat for Indianapolis. Michael Vick is back from his injury and looks ready to wreak havoc with the Colts defense. Stopping the run is a big concern for Indianapolis and Vick is more than capable of exploiting this weakness.
I expect Vick to threaten to run repeatedly on Sunday, forcing the Colts’ to over-commit and leave passing lanes open. Bet on the Philadelphia Eagles as -2.5 favorites to win big with Sports Interaction.
The Steelers travel to Cincinnati for Monday Night Football. The Bengals have failed to capitalize on the added production of Terrell Owens and look anything but a contender as the season reaches its midway point. Pittsburgh will be eager to wash away the stain of last week’s prime-time loss to the Saints.
Look for a dominant defensive showing from the Steelers on the road. Bet on the Pittsburgh Steelers as 4½-point favorites to win big with Sports Interaction.
