Brandon Turner’s Best Bets: Week 7
We finally got a 2-1 week to get some positive momentum and put us at 7-11 on the year. I can feel the 3-0 week coming, in fact I think we can make this a 4-0 week. Here are four sure fire bets to make some money off of lucky number week 7 of the nfl season. Minnesota Vikings (-2.5) at Detroit Lions Both these teams lean heavily on their run games to win them games. The difference here will be the fact that the Vikings have a great run defense, while the Lions has been terrible and they won’t have DT Mike Daniels able to sub into this one. The Vikings have gotten their passing game back on track and will be able to combine it with Dalvin Cook this week to win this one.
Los Angeles Rams (-3.0) at Atlanta Falcons This line should be way stingier but the Rams are coming off looking awful versus the best defense in football. The Falcons defense might be the worst in football and injuries all over the offensive line will allow the Rams multiple pass rushers to tee off on Matt Ryan. There’s only so many dump offs to Freeman one team can do and still stay in a game. Take the Rams minus the points.
San Francisco 49ers (-10) at Washington Redskins Ten points is not enough in the Kyle Shanahan revenge game. This 49ers defense is ferocious and I don’t see how the Redskins manage to do anything other than kick a couple field goals. Their stout D line will limit the niners for a while but this should be a blowout.
Seattle Seahawks (-3.0) vs Baltimore Ravens We got to have at least one home team, so we’re giving a bonus game for our best bets. Russel Wilson is playing the best football of his career and they finally get Jarran Reed back from suspension. Despite what some might think from practicing against Russel Wilson but the Seahawk’s defense isn’t good at stopping running Qbs, so I expect this to be a high scoring affair. In that type of game I’ll take Russel Wilson’s magic over the Ravens running ability.
