1) Sunday November 1st: Houston @ Buffalo

The Texans have turned the corner and have started winning ballgames and could be 5-3 for the first time ever. What people have failed to realize is that the Bills have started winning too and on the road. Now they come home to play the Texans. The Texans have floundered in 15 of 19 as highway short-enders after a straight up win and they have dropped six of seven ATS in the first of back-to-back road tests. The Bills are 10-5 ATS after a straight up dog win. Look for the Bills to win with defense at home against the Texans. 
Play: Buffalo +3 

2) Sunday November 1st: Carolina @ Arizona

Arizona is off a very huge win over New York and now goes back home to face the Panthers. The Panther are having a horrible season but are in a good spot in this game. Arizona has failed to take advantage of prosperity in the past at home, dropping 12 of 15 spread decisions off two or more consecutive wins. The defending NFC champs are a dismal 0-8 as home favorites of 7 ½ to 14 points and this line is inflated due to all the big favorites covering last week. Take the points. 
Play: Panthers +10  

3) Sunday November 1st: Vikings @ Packers

This is the game of the week for many die hard fans since it is Brett’s first game back in Green Bay since he left Green Bay and ended up in purple. The Packers win combined with the Vikings loss put this team right back in the chase for the division. The Packers are 8-1 ATS at home off a double-digit straight up win, while the Vikings are 0-9 as road dogs versus a conference foe following a straight up and ATS loss. The Packers will be fired up for this game and the result will be a big win for the Packers. 
Play: Packers -3 

4) Sunday November 1st: Giants @ Eagles

The eagles lost to Oakland and made up with a big win at Washington but now have to face the G-men on a short week. The Giants are miffed after getting upset against the Cardinals and will be eager to take it out on the Eagles. Many teams have the Giants figured out and the Eagles will be able to take advantage of this. The Eagles are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 at Lincoln Financial Field and 11-2 ATS off a division effort. They are 14-4 ATS at home after playing a Monday night game as well. Look for a big win by the birds. 
Play: Eagles -1  

5) Sunday November 1st: Denver @ Baltimore

The Broncos are undefeated but still do not get the respect they deserve as they are 3 point dogs to Baltimore. The Broncos are coming off a bye week and need road wins like this to prove they can win consistently. They have come up short in eight of nine ATS after scoring 30 points or more. In addition, Denver is 1-10 versus excellent passing teams (completion percentage 61 or greater). The Ravens have cashed 15 of 20 as home favorites of 3 ½-points or less and six of seven with rest. They are 12-6 ATS after losing by three points or less and 35-18 ATS at home outside their division. The Ravens light up the Broncos and win big.
Play: Ravens -3.5 

6) Sunday November 1st: SF @ Colts

The niners started off the season looking like contenders but now they look like pretenders. Alex Smith came in last game and sparked the offense and he will be asked to get a tough win against the undefeated Colts. The 49ers are 5-1 as dogs of four points or more versus AFC foes and will be looking at a big number here that should be easy to stay within. The 49ers never stop playing and look good with the points.  
Play: 49ers +13 

7) Monday November 2nd: Atlanta @ New Orleans

The Saints are off a big come from behind win and go home to face the Falcons in a big divisional game. Surprisingly, New Orleans has struggled at the Superdome against poor defensive outfits. The Saints have dropped 14 of 17 spread decisions at home versus teams that allow more than 350 yards per game. This is actually a very good spot for the Falcons because division foes have thrived at New Orleans, cashing at a 39-19 clip. The underdog has barked in 13 of the last 17 series scuffles, while the home team is just 14-22 ATS. The Falcons have played tough teams this year and are up to the challenge. The offense of the Falcons keeps them in this game and another inflated line gets exposed. 
Play: Falcons +10
