Brandon's Best Bets: Week 6
This week we look at three teams who we think can be road warriors and bring home the bacon in hostile territory.
Seattle Seahawks (-3) at Oakland Raiders
The Seahawks are fresh off almost upsetting the League's best team in the Rams. They aren't really a "road" team because they will be playing the Raiders in London. Overseas games stress a team's coaching staff and preperation and we've seen Gruden struggling with those aspects since his return.
Carolina Panthers (-1.5) at Washington Redskins
The Panthers offense has been clicking and they will get Thomas Davis back to help shore up their run defense. In a shootout I don't trust Alex Smith to keep up and one and a half points is an easy swallow.
Kansas City Chiefs (+3.5) at New England Patriots
The pats have beaten up on an overrated Dolphins tean and almost lost to an injury depleted Colts squad. They haven't fixed a lot of their issues and their secondary is still awful. Patrick Mahomes will burn McCourty and co multille times and show the Patriots they still aren't ready to play elite teams.
