Welcome back for another edition of Dynasty Sneako’s picks! Make sure to follow me on Twitter @DynastySneako. Last week I went exactly .500 at 6-6-1. My lock of the week, the Green Bay Packers to cover the spread against the Houston Texans was a hit, so hopefully you followed the wager amount suggestions. On to this week!

Atlanta Falcons @ Carolina Panthers

Favorite: Panthers - 2 points

Over/under: 51.5 points

The Falcons somehow lost another game in the last seconds last week, and the Panthers were competitive against a tough Saints team. I’ll take the Panthers to get the job done here against the Falcons. At this point, the Falcons are better off tanking for a better pick. Is that why Todd Gurley fell into the end zone even though he was told not to score?

Dynasty Sneako’s pick: Panthers -2

Amount to wager between $0-$100: $60

Indianapolis Colts @ Detroit Lions

Favorite: Colts - 2.5 points

Over/under: 50 points

Hopefully the Colts took their bye week to get things ironed out. It looks like Michael Pittman and Darius Leonard should be back. The Lions are better than advertised but the Colts were one of my favorites to contend for the Super Bowl before the season started. I think the Colts win this one easily.

Dynasty Sneako’s pick: Colts -2.5

Amount to wager between $0-$100: $60

Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers

Favorite: Packers - 7 points

Over/under: 51.5 points

This will be a tough task for the Vikings. The Packers returned to form against the Texans last week after getting demolished the week before by the Bucs. I expect the Packers to continue their solid play this week. Dalvin Cook returns for the Vikings, but the Vikings have popped up in trade rumors for most of their aging vets. Minnesota is playing for a draft pick at this point.

Dynasty Sneako’s pick: Packers -7

Amount to wager between $0-$100: $80

New England Patriots @ Buffalo Bills

Favorite: Bills - 3.5 points

Over/under: 42.5 points

I’d stay away from this game if you can. The Pats have looked bad but we know Bill Belichick will have his team ready to play against a divisional opponent. Do I think the Pats win? No, but I think they make it a competitive, boring game. The Bills have no run game and they look like they miss John Brown. I’d bet the under if I had a gun to my head and had to choose.

Dynasty Sneako’s pick: Under 42.5 Total Points

Amount to wager between $0-$100: $20

Tennessee Titans @ Cincinnati Bengals

Favorite: Titans - 5.5 points

Over/under: 46 points

The Titans couldn’t quite get it done against the Steelers last week. Still, Derrick Henry had a decent game on the ground against the Steelers stout un defense. This week Henry gets a cake matchup against a bad Bengals defense and he should run buck wild. Titans win big.

Dynasty Sneako’s pick: Titans -5.5

Amount to wager between $0-$100: $80

Las Vegas Raiders @ Cleveland Browns

Favorite: Browns - 2.5 points

Over/under: 51.5 points

This feels like a trap game for the 5-2 Browns. They’re playing decent football but the Raiders are better than their 3-3 record suggests - their schedule has been absolutely brutal so far this year. Still, I don’t want to bet against a Browns team who’s only losses are to Pittsburgh and Baltimore. Both defenses are shaky so I’ll take the over in this one. We will see if Baker is really better without OBJ.

Dynasty Sneako’s pick: Over 51.5 Total Points

Amount to wager between $0-$100: $60

New York Jets @ Kansas City Chiefs

Favorite: Chiefs - 19.5 points

Over/under: 49 points

It’s so cliche to talk trash about the Jets at this point. They’re averaging under 7 points over their last 3 games. They then get to play arguably the best team in the league this week. 19.5 points is insane, but it seems about right. My only concern is the Chiefs getting up big and then taking their foot off of the gas.

Dynasty Sneako’s pick(s): Chiefs -19.5

Amount to wager between $0-$100: $60

Los Angeles Rams @ Miami Dolphins

Favorite: Rams - 3.5 points

Over/under: 46 points

Welcome to the NFL, Too Tagovailoa. Your first test - Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey. Good luck with that one. The Rams should take care of business this week.

Dynasty Sneako’s pick: Rams -3.5

Amount to wager between $0-$100: $60

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Baltimore Ravens

Favorite: Ravens - 4 points

Over/under: 46.5 points

This is easily the game of the week. That being said, I could see this going either way. I’ll take the Steelers +4 as I expect this to go down to the wire and to be a close game.

Dynasty Sneako’s pick: Steelers +4 points

Amount to wager between $0-$100: $40

Los Angeles Chargers @ Denver Broncos

Favorite: Chargers - 3 points

Over/under: 44.5 points

Justin Herbert is your Offensive Rookie of the Year so far, and it’s really not close. The Broncos are a good defense, but not great. The Broncos have not been great on offense, but they will need to air the ball out in order to keep up with Herbert and the Chargers offense. This seems highly likely to result in a high number of points.

Dynasty Sneako’s pick: Over 44.5 Total Points

Amount to wager between $0-$100: $60

New Orleans Saints @ Chicago Bears

Favorite: Saints - 4.5 points

Over/under: 43.5 points

We unfortunately got to watch the Bears struggle on Monday night football. The Bears can’t run the ball and their QB situation is as bad as it gets. The Saints should handle the Bears pretty easily this week.

Dynasty Sneako’s pick: Saints -4.5

Amount to wager between $0-$100: $80

San Francisco 49ers @ Seattle Seahawks

Favorite: Seahawks - 2.5 points

Over/under: 54 points

Get your bets in before the line moves on this one. This seems like the Seahawks should be favored by a touchdown or more at home against a beat up 49ers team. Russell Wilson will be motivated after throwing 3 INTs last Sunday night. No chance he has 2 terrible games in a row.

Dynasty Sneako’s pick: Seahawks -2.5

Amount to wager between $0-$100: $100 Lock of the Week

Dallas Cowboys @ Philadelphia Eagles

Favorite: Eagles - 7 points

Over/under: 43.5 points

Oh how the mighty have fallen. Who are you taking at this point, the Cowboys or the Jets? Meanwhile, the Eagles are trending in the opposite direction. They’ve been competitive in every game while being decimated with injuries, and they seem to be getting guys back. The Eagles are my pick to win this division this year, and they won’t miss on an opportunity to punish the Cowboys.

Dynasty Sneako’s pick: Eagles -7

Amount to wager between $0-$100: $60

Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ New York Giants

Favorite: Buccaneers - 10.5 points

Over/under: 46 points

This could be another bad Monday Night Football game. The Bucs are clicking and the Giants are bottom dwellers. 10.5 points is a hefty spread but what is going to stop Tom Brady? Not the Giants.

Dynasty Sneako’s pick: Buccaneers -10.5

Amount to wager between $0-$100: $80
