Run under with regrettable New York offenses – The Denver Post



13.00, Texans of 3, 44 ½

HANKS SKASTER: It can be hard to believe but the Jets are the better team and the Texans are favored for the first time all year. Even with Tyrod Taylor back on QB, the Texans are still offensively challenged, with a total of under 200 yards of total offense in their rebellion last week. As bad as the Jets defense is, it should at least hold up. After watching two other quarterbacks play in front of him, Zach Wilson should be motivated enough to take advantage of a soft secondary in his chance to prove himself. Houston is trapped between division games here with the Colts on deck, making it a tough spot for the home favorite.

IF I WAS A BET: Jets and below.


13.00, Eagles with 3 ½, 46 ½

HANKS SKASTER: The Giants continue to wallow in their own sub-mediocrity, while the Eagles, now with Nick Sirianni emphasizing the running game, play their best football this year. Big Blues offensive problems will not be solved in a week by preserving Jason Garrett; Philly still has a big advantage where it matters – in the trenches. And Freddie Kitchens calls acting? Do you remember his Brown offense? It’s going to take a lot of effort from the Giants’ defense to keep this close, and we all saw how much they miss Logan Ryan. Not crazy about the hook, but we go with the only one of those teams that still has playoff hopes.

IF I WAS A BET: Eagles and under.


13.00, Bucs of 2 ½, 52

HANKS SKASTER: The entire Colts’ offense is about giving the ball to Jonathan Taylor, who performed fabulously in Buffalo last week. But this is a very good running defense that will get its best running back in Vita Vea. It boils this match down to Carson Wentz against Tom Brady, and in that situation there is no case to be made for the Colts. We will admit that Tampa Bay has been a terrible road team this season with a 0-5 ATS record, but it has to stop somewhere. With the spread below a field goal, the place is here.

IF I WAS A BET: Bucs and above.


20:20, Ravens at 4, 45 ½

HANKS SKASTER: Although we are careful to give more than one FG in a giant division match, we fade the Browns. So loudly proclaimed before the season began, they fall back into their historically dysfunctional ways and underperform again. Baker Mayfield is beaten up and frustrated, not a good combination against a passing rush that could swarm him. Cleveland’s offense has not surpassed 17 points in five of the last six games, and the exception came against the Bengals in a victory greatly aided by turnover. Lamar Jackson is expected to return, although his health is still an issue. With question marks around both QBs, we are heavy on the underside.

IF I WAS A BET: Ravens and the miracle.


16:25, Packers at 1, 47 ½

HANKS HONINGS: Sean McVay’s 4-1 ATS record after farewell must be respected, but this is not an ideal bounce-back spot against the Packers at frosty Lambeau Field. Green Bay’s defense has only allowed 11 points per game. fight at home and this Rams offensive has problems. Their running game has let them down lately, and with their O-line susceptible to pressure in the middle, the Packers can come after old friend Matthew Stafford (3-7 straight up like a lion in Green Bay). After opening the season with impressive wins against the Colts and Bucs, the Rams 0-3 SU and ATS against teams are 0.500 and better. Aaron Rodgers may be hampered, but we’ll see if he can handle it in this one, and he does not need that many points for a W.

IF I WAS A BET: Packers and below.


13.00, Falcons at 1, 46 ½

HANKS HONINGS: Trevor Lawrence has not thrown a touchdown pass in three games. In what is usually a trademark of bad teams, the Jaguars are back to killing themselves with penalties, errors and general stupidity. Matt Ryan gets slapped behind the offensive line and Jaguar’s defense should be able to get a push, but he has more weapons at his disposal with the return of Kyle Pitts and Cordarrelle Patterson. The Falcons were terrible against the Pats and Cowboys, two of the NFL’s best, but have done very well against the NFL’s forwards with coverage against the Jets, Giants and Dolphins. The wonder screams here.

IF I WAS A BET: Falke and under.


13.00, Patriots of 5 ½, 44 ½

HANKS SKASTER: As impressive as the Patriots have been, we hesitate to put all those points against what is still one of the AFC’s best teams. Throw Tennessee’s loss to Texas last week. It was a bad place for them after so many impressive victories and an uncharacteristically bad play by Ryan Tannehill. Mike Vrabel has beaten his old boss in each of their two meetings, both times as an underdog, and he wants his team ready. The Patriots have scored just four offensive TDs in their last three wins, while the Titans defense, led by an underrated front four, has kept four of its last nine enemies at 22 or fewer points. Pats will win, but it will be a squeaker.

IF I WAS A BET: Titans and under.


Monday at 20.15, Washington at 1, 46 ½

HANKS SKASTER: At the moment, Taylor Heinicke plays Russell Wilson, who has not looked the same since recovering from his injured finger. He will have to return to old form if the Seahawks are to have a chance because Seattle cannot run the ball and its defense cannot be trusted. Despite the loss of Chase Young, the Burgundy and Gold defense come out of this year’s two best performances. Heinicke, meanwhile, is fortunate to have an elite whose unsung WR in Terry McLaurin. After letting Colt McCoy burn them in 328 yards without DeAndre Hopkins, the Seahawks secondary does not expect to have an answer against the WFT combination.

IF I WAS A BET: Washington and the others.


16:05, chargers with 2 ½, 47 ½

HANKS SKASTER: Justin Herbert, who was finally freed from the game plan, broke out against the Steelers and it was to continue here against a defense that ranks 27th in the third down-stop. The Chargers give up a lot of yards on the ground and Denver has two good backs, but Herbert’s success may force the Broncos into the air. The Broncos are coming off their farewell, but it has not necessarily been positive this year with the teams 7-13 ATS. Thy has had trouble winning at home this season while the Chargers are 5-0 ATS in the division this season. With the number below a field goal, we go with the better team.

IF I WAS A BET: Chargers and above.


13.00, Panthers at 1, 42 ½

HANKS SKASTER: Cam Newton was this week’s feel good story, but he was barely OK against Washington Whatevers. He never even tried to throw the ball down the field (189 yards in total) and was therefore unable to move the team after coming back. Miami’s defense has played better over the team’s three-game winning streak and should not have much trouble against a one-man team, even though that man is Christian McCaffrey. Tua Tagovailoa, meanwhile, is playing his best football. The Panthers have good defensive stats, but much of it is built against weak attacks. With the Dolphins on a three-game winning streak and playing closer to pre-season expectations, they are an attractive home underdog in what will definitely be a low-scoring game.

IF I WAS A BET: Dolphins and below.




16:25, Niners of 3, 48 ½

HANKS SKASTER: Both teams have momentum as they try to put together playoff pushes after slow starts, so it really is a coin flip. The situation favors the Niners, who are getting healthier, against a team traveling to the West Coast after an emotional victory over its biggest rival. But if the Vikings are able to run against a defense that has had a hard time stopping it (4.5 ypc), Kirk Cousins ​​will enjoy the game as Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen find themselves selected. The Vikings are 5-0 ATS as underdog and Niners are 0-4 ATS as home favorite. We are looking for lots of points, which makes over the strongest bet.

CANNOT HELP YOURSELF ?: Vikings and above.




13.00, Bengals at 3 ½, 45

IF I WAS A BET: Steelers and above.


BEST CHART OF THE WEEK: Washington. Regards Heinickes.

Last week: 7-8

Overall: 81-82-2

Over under: 87-78

Best bet: 7-4
