Millionaire —– San Diego Chargers +pts
No Limit —— Cleveland Browns+pts
Perfect Play —– St. Louis Rams +pts
The leading rusher for Arizona is out due to an injury. Chris Johnson is rumored to have a broken leg. His backup, Andre Ellington is also out. So much for a Cardinals rushing attack. The Cardinals have struggled playing in St Louis. Arizona won 12-6 at St. Louis last season after losing their two previous visits there. Nick Foles needs to put on a show. He played last week and was alright completing 30 of 46 passes against a good Cincinnati defense. Foles had his best game of the year in the Rams’ 24-22 victory at Arizona on Oct. 4, throwing for three TDs. Todd Gurley had 146 yards of rushing in that game. This is a game that St Louis should win at home to keep the fan support strong. It’s a division match up and advantage goes to the Rams.
Inner Circle —– Minnesota Vikings+pts
***NFC Upset of Month**
Seattle’s Jimmy Graham is a huge loss to the Seahawks. They have zero offensive weapons to start with and his injury last week was devastating. Seattle is off a Steelers win and moved above .500 for the first time and into a tie with Atlanta for the NFC’s second wild-card spot. But to win regular season games, it takes scoring. They’re defense can carry them just so far and usually, defense is fueled by the crowd noise of which they won’t have today. RB Marshawn Lynch is also injured for Seattle. For the Vikings, Adrian Peterson has 329 yards in three career games against the Seahawks so look for his number to get called and watch the Vikes chew up the clock. Against Atlanta last week, the Vikings won their sixth in seven games to reclaim sole possession of first place in the NFC North. The Vikings defense returned to form against Atlanta matching a season low in points allowed and should easily duplicate that effort against Russell Wilson led offense. The Upset of the Month should have a portion of your wager bet on the money line.
Pinnacle —– New Orleans Saints +pts
***NFL Shocker of Year**
Exactly one year ago, Carolina came to New Orleans and put a 41-10 thumping on the Saints ending a 6 game losing streak. Since then, they have won 14 consecutive games. The Saints will attempt to stop that streak. This is a division game and will be played accordingly. Laying this many points on the road is a very difficult task for this situation. The Panthers usually plays to the strength of their competition and is not known for blowing out teams. Add in the Saints new defensive coordinator, Dennis Allen, and you will see a very different team defense. Firing Rob Ryan was way over due. We all have witnessed the Panthers 11 wins so not much to add to that story. The key will certainly be the different looks that the Saints defense shows to Cam Newton. Getting a touchdown from the oddsmakers, playing at home and having Drew Bree’s throwing for you will have the betting public in “shock” wondering what happened.
