Well, yesterday was significantly better than last week however, have you see some of the teams that won? Big road upsets like the Bills over the Falcons, Rams over Cowboys and Panthers over the Patriots. Other upsets included Texans over the Titans and Jets over Jags. A crazy day for sure which we escaped with an 8-7 record against the spread and a fantastic 10-5 record with the over/under. Once again, Uncle Colin knows best.
Colin Cowherd’s Blazing 5 improved to 14-5 (74%) after going 3-1 in yesterday’s games with tonight being the 5th. He’s stated himself that this is the best start ever to his Blazing 5 in it’s 10 year history and might I remind you, he’s hit 70% before (2012-2013) season. He’s onto something here.
Washington Redskins at Kansas City Chiefs, 8:30p (Chiefs -7, O/U: 49.5)
Welcome back to one of the loudest stadiums in the NFL. It’s also home of the only remaining undefeated team, the Chiefs. They have THE hottest young player in the league with Hunt playing out of his mind in the first 3 weeks. Fans have to be a little worried of his usage after seeing another sensational rookie running back go down with a torn ACL injury (Dalvin Cook). Smith is seeing a career year unfold right before his eyes and I’m not sure, outside of Kansas City, who might’ve seen this coming given a top receiver in Jeremy Maclin bolting for Baltimore.
The Redskins are still looking like a formidable team to compete for a playoff spot and that will be mostly due to their defense and the (so far) consistent Kirk Cousins with his 3 back committee behind him. Chris Thompson has come away as the main weapon for Cousins as he leads the team in rushing yards, yards per carry, receptions, yards and touchdowns.
This will be close early but once the 2nd half comes, the experience in coaching will come out with Andy Reid. Alex Smith has truly found where he was supposed to be his entire career and he’ll show it again tonight. Take the Chiefs to win and cover in the over, 36-24.
