TV Schedules – Point Spreads – Kickoff Times – Picks

Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills

  • Dolphins-Bills Date: Thursday, November 15
  • Dolphins-Bills Kickoff Time: 8:20 PM
  • Dolphins-Bills TV Network: NFL Network
  • Dolphins-Bills Point Spread: Bills -3
  • Dolphins-Bills Over-Under Odds: 45.5
  • Dolphins-Bills Pick: The Dolphins hit a low point last week after they lost 37-3 to the Titans. They are still in the playoff hunt, but need a win over the Bills to keep realistic hopes alive. Buffalo nearly beat the Patriots last week before Ryan Fitzpatrick threw an interception in the end zone during the comeback attempt. His Bills still come into this game favored, but I see the Dolphins coming back and taking this one. Dolphins +3
Arizona Cardinals at Atlanta Falcons
  • Cardinals-Falcons Date: Sunday, November 18
  • Cardinals-Falcons Kickoff Time: 1 PM
  • Cardinals-Falcons TV Network: FOX
  • Cardinals-Falcons Point Spread: Falcons -10
  • Cardinals-Falcons Over-Under Odds: 44
  • Cardinals-Falcons Pick: Both teams are coming off of losses this past week but are facing completely different scenarios. Atlanta lost their first game of the season last week against the Saints, while the Cardinals lost their fifth game in a row to drop to 4-5. Atlanta will certainly win this game, and should easily cover the ten point spread. Falcons -10
Cleveland Browns at Dallas Cowboys
  • Browns-Cowboys Date: Sunday, November 18
  • Browns-Cowboys Kickoff Time: 1 PM
  • Browns-Cowboys TV Network: CBS
  • Browns-Cowboys Point Spread: Cowboys -8
  • Browns-Cowboys Over-Under Odds: 43.5
  • Browns-Cowboys Pick: The Cowboys were able to remain in the NFC playoff hunt with a win over Philadelphia last week. The Browns had a bye after a game against Baltimore that should have been a victory. The Browns are winless on the road this season, which is a mark that should hold true after this game. While they will lose, they should be able to win with the help of the spread. Browns +8
Green Bay Packers at Detroit Lions
  • Packers-Lions Date: Sunday, November 18
  • Packers-Lions Kickoff Time: 1 PM
  • Packers-Lions TV Network: FOX
  • Packers-Lions Point Spread: Packers -4
  • Packers-Lions Over-Under Odds: 52
  • Packers-Lions Pick: The Packers have won four games in a row, which was a streak started with a win over the then undefeated Texans. The Lions had won two in a row before losing to the Vikings, which put them in last place in the NFC North. Things will not get any easier for the Lions after this game, as they play Houston on Thanksgiving day. Packers -4

Cincinnati Bengals at Kansas City Chiefs
  • Bengals-Chiefs Date: Sunday, November 18
  • Bengals-Chiefs Kickoff Time: 1 PM
  • Bengals-Chiefs TV Network: CBS
  • Bengals-Chiefs Point Spread: Bengals -3.5
  • Bengals-Chiefs Over-Under Odds: 43.5
  • Bengals-Chiefs Pick: It is interesting that the Bengals are not bigger favorites in this game. They dismantled the Giants last week, while the Chiefs lost once again to fall to 1-8. The Bengals had a bad stretch with their four straight losses, but they still have a realistic shot at making the playoffs. An easy opponent such as the Chiefs is a perfect way to get back to .500, and back in contention. Bengals -3.5
New York Jets at St. Louis Rams
  • Jets-Rams Date: Sunday, November 18
  • Jets-Rams Kickoff Time: 1 PM
  • Jets-Rams TV Network: CBS
  • Jets-Rams Point Spread: Rams -3.5
  • Jets-Rams Over-Under Odds: 38.5
  • Jets-Rams Pick: The Jets have reached new, even lower depths after their 28-7 defeat at the hands of the Seahawks. They are now 3-6, which just fuels the cries for Tebow to be put in. I say why not. The Rams had their last game, against the 49ers, finish in a tie. It surely did not help the complaints about the NFL overtime system, and it did nothing to help the last-place Rams. They are at home in this one, so look for them to win against the lowly-Jets. Rams -3.5
Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins
  • Eagles-Redskins Date: Sunday, November 18
  • Eagles-Redskins Kickoff Time: 1 PM
  • Eagles-Redskins TV Network: FOX
  • Eagles-Redskins Point Spread: Redskins -4
  • Eagles-Redskins Over-Under Odds: 43.5
  • Eagles-Redskins Pick: It is nearly certain that Nick Foles will get the start for the Eagles in this game, as Michael Vick is nursing a concussion. He will head into Washington to take on RG III and the Redskins, who have lost their last three games. The ‘Skins may be favored because of Vick’s absence, but look for Foles to have a breakout game and surprise Washington’s defense. Eagles +4
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Carolina Panthers
  • Buccaneers-Panthers Date: Sunday, November 18
  • Buccaneers-Panthers Kickoff Time: 1 PM
  • Buccaneers-Panthers TV Network: FOX
  • Buccaneers-Panthers Point Spread: Buccaneers -2
  • Buccaneers-Panthers Over-Under Odds: 48.5
  • Buccaneers-Panthers Pick: The Bucs are still in the playoff race after last week’s win over the Chargers, which was their third win in a row. The Panthers are 2-7, and are simply playing spoiler at this point in the season. They only lost by six against Tampa Bay back in Week 1, but the results should be similar this time around. Buccaneers -2
Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston Texans
  • Jaguars-Texans Date: Sunday, November 18
  • Jaguars-Texans Kickoff Time: 1 PM
  • Jaguars-Texans TV Network: CBS
  • Jaguars-Texans Point Spread: Texans -15.5
  • Jaguars-Texans Over-Under Odds: 40.5
  • Jaguars-Texans Pick: The Texans are still the top team in the AFC with a record of 8-1. They take on the Jaguars, who are tied for the worst record in the AFC at 1-8. It is usually tough to take a team like Houston with such a large spread, but a twenty-point win over Jacksonville earlier in the year is enough evidence to take them in this game. Texans -15.5
New Orleans Saints at Oakland Raiders
  • Saints-Raiders Date: Sunday, November 18
  • Saints-Raiders Kickoff Time: 4:05 PM
  • Saints-Raiders TV Network: FOX
  • Saints-Raiders Point Spread: Saints -6
  • Saints-Raiders Over-Under Odds: 55
  • Saints-Raiders Pick: The Raiders have lost their last two games and have allowed at least 42 points in each of these games. The Saints have won two in a row, including last week’s win over the then 8-0 Falcons. This is a completely different team than the one who started out 0-4, and they will get back to .500 with a win over Oakland. Saints -6
San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos
  • Chargers-Broncos Date: Sunday, November 18
  • Chargers-Broncos Kickoff Time: 4:25 PM
  • Chargers-Broncos TV Network: CBS
  • Chargers-Broncos Point Spread: Broncos -8
  • Chargers-Broncos Over-Under Odds: 48.5
  • Chargers-Broncos Pick: The last time these two teams met, the Chargers blew a 24-point halftime lead and allowed 35 unanswered points to the Broncos. The Broncos should win this matchup once again, but not my the margin indicated by the spread. Look for the Chargers to surprise some and make this a close game. Chargers +8
Indianapolis Colts at New England Patriots
  • Colts-Patriots Date: Sunday, November 18
  • Colts-Patriots Kickoff Time: 4:25 PM
  • Colts-Patriots TV Network: CBS
  • Colts-Patriots Point Spread: Patriots -9
  • Colts-Patriots Over-Under Odds: 54
  • Colts-Patriots Pick: This is a classic matchup, with the only difference being that it is now Andrew Luck instead of Peyton Manning leading the Colts. Both teams are 6-3 coming into this game, and the Colts are still playing inspired football for their coach Chuck Pagano. They have won four in a row, while the Patriots have won three in a row. This game will be much closer than the spread says, so take the Colts in this one. Colts +9

Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers
  • Ravens-Steelers Date: Sunday, November 18
  • Ravens-Steelers Kickoff Time: 8:20 PM
  • Ravens-Steelers TV Network: NBC
  • Ravens-Steelers Point Spread: Ravens -3.5
  • Ravens-Steelers Over-Under Odds: 40
  • Ravens-Steelers Pick: The Steelers can tie for the lead in the AFC North with a win over the Ravens, who are coming off a 35-point destruction of the Raiders. The Steelers had trouble beating the Chiefs last week, but it will have no affect on them in this game. Look for Pittsburgh to get their home record to 5-0 with a win over the Ravens. Steelers +3.5
Chicago Bears at San Francisco 49ers
  • Bears-49ers Date: Monday, November 19
  • Bears-49ers Kickoff Time: 8:30 PM
  • Bears-49ers TV Network: ESPN
  • Bears-49ers Point Spread:
  • Bears-49ers Over-Under Odds:
  • Bears-49ers Pick: Will be posted when spread is released. Straight Pick: 49ers

Last Week: 5-9

Yearly Record: 68-74-4
