Last week was another decent week for Perky Bets. We hope you caught some of the picks. Some of the picks that we thought were locks, turned out just right. However, there were a couple of surprises. -11 was a lot for KC but I don’t think many people thought the Colts were going to win that game outright on the road.
Each week is different of course and you need to consider that before you make your wagers. Basing everything on the week before is not the best way to go about it. The history of the two teams is a strong stipulation for us. Green Bay coming to Dallas, we knew the Packers have the Cowboys number right now. You have to think about these things when making your picks. For all of our PA people, be sure to check out this FanDuel Sportsbook review.
Week Five Actionable Items
- We predicted Jay Gruden was going to get fired and it happened the next day. This was a lock. 🙂
- We never want to see someone get fired or lose their job. The good news is, he will find another.
- Since 2010, the Seahawks are 9-1 on Thursday night (Primetime).
- Teddy Bridgewater raked up enough yards (300+) and four TD’s in one game. Only one other QB has done that.
- Eagles defense had 10 sacks in the game against the Jets. (Not sure why we left this one off the slate).
- Aaron Jones had 4 touchdowns for the Packers. Most by any RB since 1993. If he hit five it would have been most by any player.
Houston Texans @ Kansas City Chiefs
The first game we will look at this week is the Houston Texans at the Kansas City Chiefs. Both teams are 3-2 against the spread this season. We do have a pretty hot Texans team coming into Kansas City however, this won’t affect the outcome completely. We still think Kansas City covers the spread and rebounds from last week’s Sunday night loss to the Indianapolis Colts. We are taking Kansas City -4.5.
Updated – Maybe Houston is the real deal
Philadelphia Eagles @ Minnesota Vikings
Philadelphia has seemed to have found its stride and the Minnesota Vikings have also rebounded from their media fiasco a week ago. Both teams are pretty good against the spread but we have to take Minnesota at home -3.
Updated – The Eagles did not look good at all. The Vikings needed a bad week to get things rolling.
Cincinnati Bengals @ Baltimore Ravens
Baltimore is coming off a big road win against the Steelers. Cincinnati is coming off another tough loss against Arizona. Cincinnati will be traveling to Baltimore getting 12 points and we feel like it’s time for Cincinnati to step up their game. They will most likely lose the game but we feel like they can cover the 12 point spread. If we are wrong the Bengals will lose by 20 points. Remember what we always say. The NFL is week to week.
Updated – A last-minute drive saved us on this one. The Bengals are desperate.
Washington Redskins @ Miami Dolphins
With the game of the week, we have the Washington Redskins against the Miami Dolphins in Miami. Miami is actually getting 3.5 points against the Redskins. Both teams are terrible against the spread so this kinda makes an even match but at 3.5 we feel like Miami could win this game. However, we have to think about a new coach and new locker room pride in the locker room for Washington. We think Washington gets its first victory of the season but we still think the Dolphins take their points and run.
Updated – The Dolphins covered in the last second but couldn’t seal the win.
San Francisco 49ers @ Los Angeles Rams
We’ve gone against San Francisco a couple of times this year and it hasn’t played off. We see that they are traveling to Los Angeles to face the Rams. The Rams are -3.5 currently and we feel like the San Francisco 49ers getting points is a pretty strong bet on the road. Although they may get their first loss of the year, getting points is strong. We are taking San Francisco +4.5.
Updated – The 49ers are here for the party. They took the points and ran.
Dallas Cowboys @ New York Jets
Dallas is coming off a tough loss against the Green Bay Packers at home and will travel to New York to face the Jets. To be honest, the Jets look horrible this year and with the line at -7 for the Cowboys, we feel like this is a pretty strong bet. Cowboys will bounce back and probably win by two touchdowns even if Sam Darnold plays in this game. Take the Cowboys -7.
Updated – The Cowboys are going downhill fast. They will most likely still win the NFC East but they look crappy.
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Los Angeles Chargers
We never like to go against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Without a sure quarterback, we have to take the Chargers -7 at home on Sunday night. Steelers will probably stick to a short running game scenario and you can consider the under 43.5 as well. For now, we will take the Chargers at home -7.
Updated – This game did the exact opposite of what we thought. The under did cover if you took it, nice one.
This wraps up this week’s game picks and we hope you get some success out of him. We will update you on the stat line as the games finish up and keep you posted on how we did for this week. If you have any questions please let us know do the best to get back to you as soon as possible.
