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

Baltimore -9
Philadelphia

Baltimore is back in the groove after that debacle against Kansas City while the Eagles remain offensively challenged with a struggling Carson Wentz.

Denver
New England -9

Cam Newton is back under center, but the Pats are still dealing with the ramifications of Covid-19.

Arizona -1
Dallas

Cardinals minus 1 vs. Cowboys. Arizona is admittedly an up-and-down team. Facing the soft defense of the Cowboys, the arrow should be pointing way up for Kyler Murray.

JOE

Houston
Tennessee -3.5

The Titans, with tough guy Mike Vrabel running the show, sure look like they are going to do some damage this year in the AFC the way they took apart the Bills. 

Cleveland
Pittsburgh -3.5

A quarterback with bad ribs (Baker Mayfield) is not often a good quarterback. Besides, the Browns traditionally play awful in Pittsburgh.

Los Angeles Rams -3
San Francisco

The Rams are on a roll and the 49ers seem on the cusp of collapsing between all of the injuries and Jimmy GQ getting benched.

Last week: Ira: 2-1,  Joe: 0-3.

Season record: Ira: 10-5,  Joe: 6-9.
