It was a .500 night on Thursday between the Cardinals and Packers. That brings my record to 89-98. It's another Sunday with a chance to get things back on track. .
If you've got questions heading into tonight's game hit me up @Drew_Phelps83 on twitter.


Texans UNDER 14.5 Team Total Points -115 (1 Unit)

We know that the Texans stink and especially when Davis Mills starts. The Rams defense has stepped it up over the last three weeks allowing just 15.7 points per game. Houston is only scoring 13.9 points per game for the season and just 10 points over their last three. This is an easy winner.



Cooper Kupp OVER 27.5 Longest Reception -120 (1 Unit)

The connection between Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp has been unreal. As long as Kupp stays healthy, it should be a record breaking season for both of them. He has been over this number in six of their seven games this season. It seems like every week he catches a long ball over the middle and takes it for 30 plus.





Pat Freiermuth OVER 3.5 Receptions -115 (1 Unit)

We know that Ben Roethlisberger's arm is shot and can't throw it more than 15 yards accurately. He has found a new favorite target in that short intermediate range and his name is Pat Freiermuth. The Penn State tight end was targeted seven times in their last game and caught all seven balls for 58 yards. I don't think that changes anytime soon especially knowing how well Pat blocks, he's on the field a lot.



Najee Harris OVER 18.5 Rush Attempts -115 (1 Unit)

Everything in this offense revolves around Harris. He has become the Le'Veon Bell in this offense and Harris is thriving. He's had 20 plus carries in back to back games. This will be a grind it out game against division rival Cleveland. Nick Chubb vs Najee Harris, who comes out on top? That I think determines the winner of this game.





Jalen Hurts OVER 8.5 Rush Attempts -110 (1 Unit)

Hurts has to run the ball for the Eagles to win. He should have success against this Lions defense. He has covered this number in five of his last six games. Whether they are designed runs or scrambles, this dude will be on the move throughout the game in the Motor City.



T.J. Hockenson OVER 5.5 Receptions +115 (1 Unit)

Hockenson has been a bit of a disappointment of late but I believe that turns around against the Eagles. Did you see what Foster Moreau did last weekend? He caught six balls for 60 yards and that's Foster Moreau. He has been over this number in back to back weeks against better opponents.





Elijah Mitchell OVER 71.5 Rushing Yards -115 (1 Unit)

Elijah looked fantastic on Sunday night against the Colts. He is a great fit for the Kyle Shanahan system and I don't see that slowing down against the Bears. Chicago allows around 120 yards on the ground per game. He got nearly 20 carries and if he gets that again against this team, he'll easily get this number.



Khalil Herbert OVER 69.5 Rushing Yards -115 (1 Unit)

Since taking over the lead back role in Chicago after David Montgomery got hurt, he's been fantastic. Khalil has been over this rushing total in all three games including clearing 100 yards against the best rush defense in the league, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 49ers allow around 120 yards per game on the ground.





Russell Gage OVER 31.5 Receiving Yards -115 (1 Unit)
Russell Gage OVER 3.5 Receptions +110 (1 Unit)

The Falcons offense has finally clicked and that's thanks in large part to Kyle Pitts. He has been fantastic over the last couple weeks which has opened things up for others. Gage returned to the field after nearly a month to have six targets and four catches. Ridley and Pitts will get their looks and Gage has looked to be that third option for Ryan while Patterson has looked sharp carrying the ball.




Tua Tagovailoa OVER 11.5 Rushing Yards -110 (1 Unit)

Since returning as the starting quarterback for the Dolphins, he's been more willing to run with the ball. He had just one yard rushing in the first two games of the season but over the last two, he's combined for over 50. He'll have to do that and a lot more to beat the Bills.



Emmanuel Sanders OVER 22.5 Longest Reception -110 (1 Unit)

Where in the world has Stefon Diggs gone? It seems that teams have decided to take Diggs out of the game and make Allen go somewhere else with the ball and that guy has been Sanders. It's almost been like a rebirth in Buffalo this season with over 400 yards receiving and four touchdowns over six games. He has gone over this reception number in four of his last five games for the Bills.





Tyler Boyd OVER 45.5 Receiving Yards -115 (1 Unit)

As long as Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins are healthy and in the lineup, Boyd is the forgotten man. He'll catch his 2-4 balls for 20-40 yards each week but don't expect big numbers. He's been under this number in four of the last five games and the one he went over, Tee Higgins was out of the lineup.



Ja'Marr Chase OVER 27.5 Longest Reception -110 (1 Unit)

I have put this bet in this article each of the last five weeks and it has hit every single time because that's all this guy does. He's a big play machine and I'm going to keep riding it until the wheels fall off. He's had a catch 28 yards or longer in each of his seven games this season.





A.J. Brown OVER 5.5 Receptions -110 (1 Unit)
A.J. Brown OVER 75.5 Receiving Yards -115 (1 Unit)

Ryan Tannehill has found his connection back with A.J. Brown over the last two weeks. He's got 18 targets, 15 catches for 224 yards over the last two games. Julio Jones is out this weekend and that means Brown is the only game in town. I'm all in on Brown in this game and you should be too.



Carson Wentz OVER 12.5 Rushing Yards -125 (1 Unit)

No one will ever think of Carson Wentz as a running quarterback but he has no problem tucking and running when the moment arises. He went over this number easily the first two weeks of the season but then he twisted both of his ankles and that slowed him down. Last week against the 49ers, I saw the confidence return in his legs and he ran for nearly double this total. I'm jumping back in on his rushing.





Hunter Henry ANYTIME TOUCHDOWN +240 (1 Unit)

He has touchdown catches in four straight games. Why not take a shot that he makes it five in a row?




Trevor Lawrence OVER 20.5 Rushing Yards -120 (1 Unit)

We've spoken about this at length. The Jaguars and Trevor Lawrence like to get him involved in the running game. He has covered this number in four of his last five games. Trevor is averaging five carries per game over those last five games. If he gets those five carries, I don't see there is any way he doesn't get to this number.



James Robinson OVER 72.5 Rushing Yards -110 (1 Unit)

He has been a machine over the last four games. He's had 15 or more carries in each of those games and has had 73 or more rushing yards in each of those games as well. Seattle is third worst in the league against the run allowing 134.1 yards on the ground per game. If Urban Meyer continues to give him his 15 carries, he'll cover this number without any concern.





Teddy Bridgewater OVER 1.5 Passing Touchdowns -135 (1 Unit)
Teddy Bridgewater OVER 255.5 Passing Yards -115 (1 Unit)

I think Teddy Bridgewater lights up the Football Team on Sunday. The Football Team allows 300 yards through the air every single game. It looks like Teddy's going to get his other big weapon back on Sunday Jerry Jeudy combined with Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick and Noah Fant, they will light up this secondary.



Taylor Heinicke OVER 23.5 Rushing Yards -120 (1 Unit)

If you ignore that debacle of a game against the Kansas City Chiefs, Taylor has easily cleared this number in three straight games. He nearly ran for 100 yards against the Packers last week. The Broncos are struggling at the linebacker position with injuries all over the place. He should have no problem clearing this number on Sunday.





New Orleans Saints UNDER 22.5 Team Total Points -120 (1 Unit)

Did you watch the game on Monday night? The Saints offense was all Alvin Kamara through the yard but only put up 13 points against a pretty bad Seahawks defense. The Saints get the Buccaneers this weekend and I just can't see them putting up more than three touchdowns against this squad.



Jameis Winston UNDER 255.5 Passing Yards -115 (1 Unit)

He has been under this number in five of their six games this season. The only game that he went over was against the terrible Washington Football team secondary. He played the Seahawks on Monday and barely clear 200 passing yards late in the fourth quarter. The Tampa secondary is beat up but besides Alvin Kamara, there isn't much to worry about in this passing game for the Saints.





Kirk Cousins OVER 0.5 Interception +100 (1 Unit)

After starting the season with an 8 to 0 touchdown to interception ratio over the first three weeks, he's gone 5 to 2 over the last three. The Cowboys have a player by the name of Trevon Diggs who has seven interceptions over the first six games. The team has 11 interceptions as a whole. I love the odds and I feel like this game is going to be a shootout.
