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 as of Friday noon.

UNCLE IRA

Green Bay -3.5
at Houston

Green Bay bounces back from that debacle in Tampa last week as Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has his way against the floundering Texans.

Pittsburgh
at Tennessee -1.5

Pittsburgh’s defense is stellar, but Tennessee can beat you on the ground or through the air.

Jacksonville
at L.A. Chargers -7.5

Justin Herbert will find Jacksonville’s defense easy pickings and the hard-luck Chargers are due for a break.

JOE

Seattle -3.5
at Arizona

The Cardinals are an OK team. Despite Kyler Murray being a modern version of Russell Wilson, Arizona doesn’t have the firepower to hang with the Seahawks. 

Kansas City -8
at Denver

The Broncos are a scrappy team. They are starting to get healthy. The way the Bucs beat them up may have said more about the Bucs than it did the Broncos. Chiefs likely win but not sure they cover.

Buffalo -10
at N.Y. Jets

Bills are on a two-game losing streak that will snap today. The Bills beat the Jets by 10 to open the season and that was before the Jets threw in the towel and began trading players. 

Last week: Ira: 2-1,  Joe: 2-1.

Season record: Ira: 12-6,  Joe: 8-10.

    I do multiple parlays…but heres my big one for $750 ($10 bet)

    Bucs -3
    Browns -3.5
    Cowboys -1
    Falcons -2
    Packers -4
    Seahawks -3.5
    Pats -2.5

    I usually lose the big ones though, lol. Make my money on 3 leg and straight up moneyline bets to keep my account alive. Its just play money…but still have 3 different bets on us winning more than 9 games, winning our division, and winning the SB…$1400 coming if all that happens and I still feel it will…
