Wagering With Ira

Handicapper.

Follow along as JoeBucsFan.com columnist Ira Kaufman makes three NFL picks each week against the spread.

Point spreads courtesy of betMGM app. You may follow various point spreads courtesy of VegasInsider.com.

UNCLE IRA

San Francisco -4
N.Y. Giants

Even with all those injuries, San Francisco should control the clock and the game against the punchless Giants.

Detroit
Arizona -4.5

A 5-0 getaway appears likely for Arizona while Detroit appears destined for yet another dreary season.

Dallas
Seattle -5.0

Another miracle comeback is unlikely for the Cowboys, who don’t have enough defensive talent to contain Russell Wilson and his impressive weapons.

JOE

Tennessee -2.5
Minnesota

The Vikings look awful with a revamped defense and Kirk Cousins seems to have fallen off the cliff. Not the right opponent to be licking wounds against. 

Green Bay
New Orleans -3.0

The Packers look strong (again). The Saints? Not so much.

Houston
Pittsburgh -4

Two franchises headed in different directions. Steelers seem to be back to their old selves and Houston is a one-man band (Deshaun Watson).

Last week: Ira: 2-1,  Joe: 2-1.

Season record: Ira: 4-2,  Joe: 3-3.


Full list of this week’s spreads.
