NFL Best Bets Against the Spread – Week 3 Edition

Jake Benaquisto with his NFL Best Bets for week 3…

Week 2 Recap: It wasn’t pretty. I went 1-4 against the spread, and my record for the season is now 4-6. The Cardinals are a lot worse than I thought, as it took a Colts collapse in overtime for them to win without covering. Additionally, I made the mistake to take the Vikings +5.5 before the team announced that Sam Bradford was injured. Dallas and New Orleans also lost convincingly, so I’m thankful that Tampa Bay came through for me and covered.

Initial Reaction – Big Tanks Keep On Rolling, Raiders Beat Jets 45-20

Initial reaction to the New York Jets 45-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders

The New York Jets went to Oakland and did just about what everybody expected, losing to the Raiders 45-20. This game was somewhat competitive in the first half, until a muffed punt from Kalif Raymond (soon to be cut) set up a Raiders touchdown that gave them a permanent double digit lead. The Jets have the least talented roster in the NFL so it shouldn’t be a surprise that they lost to one of the NFL’s best teams on the road by a wide margin. Let’s dive into a #AsExpected Sunday…

Dalbin Osorio with a Know Your Opponent on the Oakland Raiders

After losing a winnable game last week in Buffalo, the Jets now travel to Oakland to take on a possible playoff team for their home opener.

Greg Armstrong breaks down the positional matchups for Jets vs. Raiders

The New York Jets head into Oakland, where they haven’t won since the Mark Sanchez hot dog game, to face a Raiders team that is considered one of the best in the NFL and is coming off of a big win against everyones sleeper pick, the Titans.

NFL Best Bets Against the Spread – Week 2 Edition

Jake Benaquisto with his week 2 NFL Best Bets…

Week One Recap: I went 3-2 last week, thanks to wins from the Eagles, Rams and a comeback cover by the Chargers on Monday Night Football. The Seahawks losing because of their offensive line was not a huge surprise, but I expected the Titans to put up a lot more points against the Raiders defense. Let’s see if I can keep my record above .500 as we head into week two…
