The NFL takes the center stage on Sunday and we have updates on previous line moves along with all the latest. Take a minute to review all the betting trends, our free picks and predictions (331-255-6 long term, 140-103-4 of late) to see what we are thinking today. See you back here next week.**


The Redskins evidently left a strong enough of an impression last week to garner support for their home opener and have been elevated from -4.5 to -6. However, this a team with many skeletons in the closet and they are 14-31 ATS in September home games. Update - The line has been unchanged all week. Until I see something different, I cannot bring myself to back the Redskins at home at this price.

NFL (267) L.A CHARGERS at (268) BUFFALO*1:00 ET* CBS* *New*

The total on this AFC affair dropped two points to 42.5 midweek and that seemed to coincide with the announcement that Josh Allen was going to start at quarterback for the Bills. Though Allen would never say, that has to hurt a little that Nathan Peterman is thought to be worth two more points than he is. As far as the game itself Buffalo can only play better than last week and let go with LA South winning 24-17, leading to UNDER.

NFL (269) HOUSTON at (270) TENNESSEE *1:00 ET* CBS* *New*

New Tennessee head coach Mike Vrabal said this week that both Marcus Mariota and Blaine Gabbert will play. This is a classic example of two heads are not better than one when it comes to betting totals, as it has fallen from 45 to 43. The total has been split in the past half dozen meetings, but sportsbooks numbers have always been low, from 38.5 to 43 since 2014. I will back a hunch and say we land on 44 with one team winning 24-20.
