Denver Broncos vs Los Angeles Chargers (-2.5)
Both teams are banged up going into this game with the Chargers to be without Hunter Henry, Joey Bosa, and Keenan Allen is unlikely for play. On the other side, the Broncos will not have Bradley Chubb and their secondary has been depleted the last few weeks. Denver’s ranks bottom five in the league, while the Chargers have a top 10 ranked offense in terms of yards per game. Even without Henry and Allen, Justin Herbert will be able to have his way with the lowly Broncos defense.
Cleveland Browns vs New York Jets: Kareem Hunt OVER/27.5 receiving yards
The Browns are without almost their entire receiving corps after they were ruled out for high risk/close contact with COVID. Cleveland do have their tight ends active, but Kareem Hunt will be heavily involved in the passing game due to the lack of options for Baker Mayfield. Hunt leads all Cleveland Running Backs with 259 receiving yards on the season, and I expect another big game for him today.
Cincinnati Bengals (+7) vs Houston Texans
The Bengals are coming off a huge upset win against the Steelers, and they will carry that momentum against one of the worst defenses in the league. Houston cannot stop the run, so I expect a big game from Giovani Bernard (OVER/49.5 rushing yards). Bernard will hell keep the game close and I even expect the Bengals to pull off a win.
