Giants vs Bengals
Giants -6 -110 at jazz
Sunday NFL Free play. My selection is on New York minus the points over Cincinnati at 1 pm et on Sunday.
This situation sets up nicely for the Giants as they look to take hold of a truly awful NFC East division. Cincinnati of course lost its best player to a season-ending injury last week with super rookie QB Joe Burrow going down. That leaves this week’s game in the hands of practice squad QB Brandon Allen. My bigger concern with the Bengals is their defense, which hasn’t shown any semblance of a pass rush nor has it been able to slow opposing ground attacks, allowing over five yards per rush. Giants QB Daniel Jones has shown some signs of career progression this season, even if it has been in baby steps. He has a relatively healthy supporting cast right now (outside of RB Saquon Barkley of course) and should feast on a bottom-tier Bengals defense here. I’ll plug my nose and lay the points with the G-Men here. Take New York (8*).

Panthers vs Vikings
UNDER 49 -110
T.M. Selection: Panthers/Vikes UNDER (1* FREE PLAY).
Carolina has nothing to play for anymore and I think it’ll just go through the motions today. Minnesota though is still very in the hunt in the NFC North, so this is definitely an important game for it.
Carolina has split its last four road games. The Panthers have PJ Walker under center and while he managed to pull off the 20-0 win over the lowly Lions last weekend, I think he’ll have a lot more trouble this week in this difficult road venue.
Carolina’s defense looked great last weekend though, posting its first shutout in five years. Overall the Panthers allowed just 185 yards of offense to veteran quarterback Matt Stafford.
Carolina will lean on Mike Davis again here again to help alleviate some of the pressure off Walker. So far the Panthers’ running back has 449 yards and three touchdowns.
The Vikes three-game win streak came to an end in their 31-28 setback at home to Dallas last weekend. Minnesota was winning games previous to that because it started to play some defense. It held Green Bay to 22 points, Detroit to 20 and the Bears to only 13 in those three victories and last week it simply ran into a desperate team and it had to play from behind the entire night.
So Minnesota will also look to establish Dalvin Cook and the ground game, the dynamic back already has 1,069 yards and 13 touchdowns on the ground.
I base my picks on many different things, but I base my Over/Under selections primarily on “situations” and in this case, this particular matchup feels like more of a “chess match,” than a “run and gun shootout.”
T.M. Prediction: 23-16 Minnesota.
