With the NFL’s top two offenses and reigning MVP Quarterbacks in this primetime game, expect a lot of points to be scored. Whichever defense can step up and make the plays will likely be the deciding factor. The only other offense that can make Baltimore’s seem average is the Patrick Mahomes led Kansas City Chiefs offense.

What Do Nfl Odds Mean?

The Lions defense is very opportunistic as well which has yielded 16 takeaways so far this season, which is tied for second-best in the league. Detroit already has more takeaways than its defense did in all of 2016. Still, the Lions have found a way to lose three straight after starting the season 3-1. Where the Lions have failed recently is on third down and in the red zone.

Offensive Player Of The Year Odds

In this scenario, the Bears (+7) actually won 31 to 14 against the Packers (-7). That’s because if you are going by the point spread, you add 7 to the final score for the Bears, and take away 7 points for the Packers. Whoever came out on top after that calculation, was the winner of the bet.

Getting a +3 would be nice, but you can still bet this game without it, especially if Colt McCoy starts. Because with all due respect to McCoy, there's absolutely no way that he should be favored on the road in Seattle. There are a few double-digit favorites this week, at least among the opening lines.

Their offense is the best in the league and the defense, well, the Falcons offense is good enough right now to cover up for a suspect defense. That offense will be tested against one of the league’s better defenses in Seattle. Carson Palmer should be back for the Cardinals who got a much needed win over San Francisco last week.

When all seemed lost for the Cincinnati Bengals, head coach Marvin Lewis’s team responded with consecutive victories over Cleveland and Buffalo.

Newton more than made up for it with 355 yards passing and three touchdowns. They have the dynamic rookie Christian McCaffrey as well as wide receivers Kelvin Benjamin (team-high 272 yards) and Devin Funchess (team-high 3 TDs). Even tight end Ed Dickson has done an admirable job in replacing injured Greg Olsen. The Denver defense appears to be back to Super Bowl form yielding just 260.8 total yards per game, tops in the NFL. That is not what the Giants want to hear, but if Manning is going to have any success they will have to find a way to run the ball. They’ll be going against a high powered Tampa Bay offense lead by Mike Evans and Jameis Winston.
