- Carolina Panthers vs New York Giants- UNDER 41.5
CAR have the same game plan as the NYG, but with much less talent. Moore has his believers, but he has a long way to go before he convinces me. Right now he is using the Trent Dilfer playbook as he will primarily manage the game and hope Williams/Stewart can carry the load. Smith should bounce back from his "flag football" arm injury, but don't expect miracles with Moore at the helm. Coach Fox is on the hotseat and this should be his last season as head coach of the Panthers. He usually gets more out of less and he will try to keep this one close to have a chance in the 4th quarter.
This game should go rather quickly as both teams will play field position and possession football. Don't expect this game on the Red Zone channel that often. Prediction: Bank UNDER 41.5.
- Miami Dolphins vs Buffalo Bills - MIA -3
The only thing I like about BUF is Spiller and a solid pass D. Outside of that, they have enormous problems on their O-line, worse problems at QB, and sit in the middle of the very early stages of a rebuilding plan. The only thing they have going for them is home field advantage, but that won't last into the 2nd half. I could go on about the holes in BUF's lineup, but it won't be necessary.
Winds could be strong so expect even more emphasis on the running game. If BUF could run the ball 75 times, that might give them an edge, but sooner or later they will need to make some plays through the air. I doubt anyone outside of Edward's immediate family believe that can happen. This game is begging to go over the current -3 line, but it's unlikely. Lay the points with confidence. Prediction: Bank MIA -3.
