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

Point spreads courtesy of Joe’s good friends at BetMGM. You may follow various point spreads courtesy of VegasInsider.com.

UNCLE IRA

Pittsburgh
Buffalo -6.5

Josh Allen is a strong MVP candidate.

Arizona
Tennessee -3

Arizona’s shaky defense gets a face full of Derrick Henry.

Chicago
L.A. Rams -7.5

Andy Dalton does just enough to keep Chicago close.

JOE

Jacksonville -3
Houston

When Vernon Hargreaves is your best cornerback and lousy Lovie Smith is your defensive coordinator, even a damn rookie quarterback will look like Joe Montana in a Super Bowl. #JacksonvilleReady

L.A. Chargers
Washington -1

Joe’s going against the popular gamblers edict that you never bet on west coast teams traveling east. These same gamblers apparently never watched FitzTragic.

Minnesota -3
Cincinnati

Until proven otherwise, the Bengals are brutal.

    Its doesn’t seem the public has realized Lovie is back. I’ve heard a lot of people pick Houston. Lawerence is going to break first start records

  2. Darin Says:

    Brad. I’ts possible but then again he’d have to beat Mariotas record from facing Lovie years back. Cant wait to find out tho cuz I’m wagering like Ira. You stole my Jacksonville ready line Ira!

    Love the 3 way teaser and firmly believe adding or subtracting 7 points to line is decent value if you are sharp. So here you go.

    1. Detroit +15 Teams with new cpaches always play hard & 15 is a bunch

    2. KC + 1.5 All Andy Reid has to do is win & he will

    3. L.A. Rams -0.5 Just win baby

    Good Luck with your short term investment broker and wager with your head and not above it.
