We at Lap of the Odds have decided that we are going to concentrate on individual performances in the NFL this season, rather than trying to beat the spreads.
With this in mind, the first game to look at is the Washington Redskins hosting the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts lost their game at home to the Bengals, conceding over 30 pints in the process. The Redskins, on the other hand, started with a win against the Cardinals. We think the hosts should win two in a row, and look to veteran running back Adrian Peterson to punch a touchdown in.
Our second game sees the Pittsburgh Steelers taking on the Kansas City Chiefs. The Steelers will never be an easy team to beat at home, but the Chiefs, in Tyreek Hill, have one of the real offensive threats in the NFL. The wide receiver/punt returner scored three touchdowns last week against the Chargers, and while the weather is good and the grounds are firm we look for this speedster to score again.
Our final game sees the defending Super Bowl champions, the Philadelphia Eagles, travel to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The hosts surprised many (including us) by beating the Saints last week, scoring almost 50 points in the process. But they now have to face a talented defence as well as a hard running offence. We also noticed that Tampa conceded over 40 points in that first game, so we’ll take Eagles running back Jay Ajayi to score.
Recommendation: Peterson (Redskins), Hill (Kansas) and Ajayi (Eagles) to all score anytime as a treble, 1 point, at approximately 13/2, Paddy Power
