NFL Free Picks And Predictions: October 8-12

NFL Free Picks And Predictions: October 8-12

The second weekend of October brings about matchday 5 in the NFL regular season. Looking at the standings in the NFC, it’s the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers that are atop after four games.

While over in the AFC, it’s the Pittsburgh Steelers, Tennessee Titans, Buffalo Bills and the favorites to win the Superbowl this season the Kansas City Chiefs.

We have the action from all the top teams this weekend, like Tampa Bay, as well as a number of other top-tier teams that haven’t made a perfect start; the likes of the Ravens, 49ers, and Saints.

Chicago Bears (3.04) vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1.41)

The Bears go 3-1 for the season and sit close to the top of the NFC. They go into this one as the underdogs, as they face a Buccaneers team that is also 3-1.

The Bears lost their last game 19-11 to the Indianapolis Colts. A disappointing result and one they weren’t expecting. This is partly why the NFL betting odds favor a win for the Buccaneers.

Tampa kicked their season off with a loss to the Saints, but have since kicked on and won the following 3 games in emphatic fashion. Tom Brady has come in and done a great job. But, will they make the postseason?

Pick the Buccaneers to win.

Baltimore Ravens (1.12) vs Cincinnati Bengals (6.78)

The Bengals are 1-2-1 for the season, beating the Jaguars in their last and earning themselves their first win for the season. Joe Burrow has been excellent since being drafted in as the first pick. The league should watch out, as it looks like he’s starting to enjoy himself.

The Ravens are certainly hopeful of making it to the Super Bowl this season. They’re certainly playing the kind of football they need to be to achieve this, with the only slip-up this season coming against the Chiefs.

We expect this game to be a lot closer than what the oddsmakers are projecting. A game that will be slated as a Burrow vs Jackson game, but the real battle will be across the field.

Expect the Ravens to win.

San Francisco 49ers (1.23) vs Miami Dolphins (3.94)

The 49ers have made a very shaky start to the season, much to the surprise of fans and pundits. Despite that, they go into this one as favorites in the eyes of the oddsmakers at top-tier NFL betting sites.

The Eagles were handed their first win of the season in their last game against the 49ers. They are lacking team cohesion, which is something they need to sort quickly.

The Dolphins are 1-3 for the season outright. But, they aren’t to be overlooked. Their losses have come to the Patriots, Bills, and Seahawks. They could cause an upset in this one.

Take the Marlins.

New Orleans Saints (1.29) vs Los Angeles Chargers (3.97)

Monday night football takes us to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, as the Saints host the Chargers. The Saints haven’t made the perfect start to the season, sitting at 2-2 overall.

The Chargers were unfortunate in their last game, putting up a great fight against the league leaders the Buccaneers eventually losing 38-31. Sadly, this puts the Chargers way down in the NFL Power Rankings for this week.

The Chargers haven’t won since Week 1, it’ll be tough for them to take anything from this. The Saints beat the Lions in their last, having lost the two previous games, which will give them momentum going into Monday’s game.

Pick the Saints to win.
