From The GetSportsInfo Podcast:



Each week I will pick two games, my “Play it Safe” selection as well as my “Out on a Limb” pick:

Play It Safe: Seahawks vs. MIN
The Vikings played better than expected last week against a Texans’ team that quit on their coach, but now they have to make the trip to Seattle to face the early favorite for the NFL MVP, Russell Wilson. I expect the Seahawks to win this game by double digits. Go ‘Hawks!

Out on a Limb: Cardinals at NYJ
My “Out on Limb” pick has failed twice in four weeks, including once with the Cardinals (vs. CAR). That said, the Jets are starting Joe freaking Flacco at quarterback this week. Look for Kyler Murray to improve his passing numbers in this one as Arizona rolls on the road.


You can get my complete “Against the Spread” plays to a separate article that will run each Saturday or Sunday morning this season. In its place here, I offer up a Thursday night betting recommendation. My starting Thursday night bankroll for the purposes of this article was $1000. Despite suffering my first loss of the season last week, at least it was a good game to watch. The same cannot be said for the Broncos at Jets.

Starting Balance: $1000
Current Balance: $1290

The Pick:
$220 Tampa Bay -3.5

This Bucs are beat up, but they still have the pieces in place to take this game. Their defense has been largely underrated and Tom Brady is starting to find his groove in the Bruce Arians’ offense. I like the Bucs to win this one by a touchdown.
