Atlanta Falcons (-12.5) to beat Miami Dolphins

This is the first game of this week's three picks that takes the favourite to cover the handicap with ease. To cut a long story short, the Miami Dolphins are a bad team! Don't be fooled by their two wins this season, they were against a bad Chargers team and a Tennessee team missing its quarterback. They haven't scored more than 19 points this season and in two of their four games scored 0 points and 6 points. They go to a Falcons teams on Sunday that is benefitting from a bye week and averaging over 30 points per home game over the last 12 months. As such, the expectation is that Miami will struggle to keep pace with Atlanta and the home team is taken to win by the required 13 points.

New Orleans Saints (-4.5) to be beat Detroit Lions

Like their divisional rivals, the New Orleans Saints return off their bye week with a home game against a team in the Detroit Lions, that is struglging to find any sort of consistency, this season.

After back-to-back losses to start the season, the Saints won back-to-back games on the road before their bye week. They face a Lions team who are well known to finding winning hard and with quarterback, Matt Stafford, struggling with injury, the home team is taken to win this, covering the 4.5 points in the process.

New England (-9) to beat New York Jets

New England's pouress defense has been one of the surprises of the season, so far. Widely earmarked as being a team that could go 16-0, before the season started, two defeats in five has been down to how bad they have looked at stopping their opponents. However, after a 10 day break, having played last Thursday, you can bet your bottom dollar that Heach Coach, Bill Billichick, will have been working overtime with his staff to fix the issues.

Meanwhile, whilst the defense may have its problems, it has been anything but on offense, as Tom Brady is on course to have a record breakigng season. The Patriots should have way too much offensive power for the Jets to keep pace and even if New England's defensive woes havine been resolved, it is hard to seem the home team getting within 10 points of the visitors, so take the Pats to cover -9.
