15 games this week after the NFL announced the postponement of the Titans vs. Steelers game. Four best bets this week. The Rams look more than good enough to cover the 12.5 they’re laying to a dreadful Giants team. I considered the Texans vs. Vikings to be a pick ’em game. 4.5 is enough to call that one a best bet. Miami looked good last Thursday against Jacksonville, but face a major uptick in level of competition this week against the Seahawks, who, so far, look like the best team in the NFL. Seattle covers 6.5. Buffalo is my lock of the week as they head to Vegas (still weird to type that) to take on the Raiders. Vegas looked good on Monday night in week 2 against New Orleans, but after the Patriots handled the Raiders in week 3 and the Saints turned in another disappointing performance Sunday night against the Packers, that week 2 game looks more like an indictment of the Saints than a selling point for the Raiders. I know Buffalo almost blew a game they should have won handily, but I like them to cover 3 in Sin City.

UPDATE (10/3): Cam Newton has tested positive for COVID-19, the game has been moved to Monday or Tuesday, and the line is off.
