NFL Match Previews

Seattle @ Arizona – (Fri 12:25pm)
The 5-3 Seahawks will travel to Arizona to take on the 4-4 Cardinals in an all-NFC West affair to kick off Week 10 of the NFL. The Cardinals were too strong for the 49ers by 20-10 last week, with the offence running through veteran RB Adrian Peterson in the absence of first-choice QB Carson Palmer. AP finished the day with a whopping 37 carries for 159 yards. It’s not the first time this season that the Cardinals have leaned heavily on Peterson after he carried the ball 26 times for 134 yards and two touchdowns in his Cardinals debut. The travelling Seahawks will present a tougher test for Peterson after they limited the Redskins running backs to just 51 rushing yards last week. This shapes up as a good bounce back spot for the Seahawks after last week’s loss to the Redskins, with QB Russell Wilson expected to have enough time to exploit the Cardinals secondary. They need to keep pace with the Rams and can’t afford to drop this game. The Seahawks are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings in Arizona, while the Cardinals are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following a win.
Best: Seattle -6 ($1.91)

New Orleans @ Buffalo – (Mon 5am)
The Bills will need a better performance from star running back LeSean McCoy if they’re to challenge the Saints, who are on a current six-game winning streak. McCoy could only manage 25 rushing yards from 12 carries in last week’s 34-21 loss to the Jets. New recruit from the Panthers, Kelvin Benjamin will make his Bills debut but will see plenty of coverage from potential defensive rookie of the year, Marshon Lattimore. The Saints offence has been firing on all cylinders of late, funneling through their running back tandem of Mark Ingram and impressive rookie Alvin Kamara. Prior to last week’s poor effort against the Jets, the Bills had only one 100-yard rushing performance against them this season. The Bills defence should be able to limit the damage of the Saints running backs and also keep Drew Brees relatively quietly, while the Saints defence has improved out of sight won’t allow the late flurry of points that the Bills scored against the Jets last week. The unders is the Wolf’s best play here. The Saints are 4-1 unders in their last 5 games, while unders has landed in three of the four games where the Bills were underdogs this year.
Best: Under 46.5 ($1.91)

Dallas @ Atlanta – (Mon 8:30am)
The Cowboys produced their best performance of the season last week, downing the Chiefs 28-17. QB Dak Prescott (21/33, 249 yards, 2TDs) had a nice outing throwing two touchdowns and rushing one in on his own. He was well supported by Ezekiel Elliot who carried the ball 27 times for 93 yards and a TD, while Terrance Williams exploded for 141 yards. It will be a disruptive week for the Cowboys, with Elliott finding out if his suspension appeal has been successful, while receivers Williams and Dez Bryant are carrying injuries heading into the clash with the Falcons. It’s almost a must-win for the 4-4 Falcons as they look to keep up with the 6-2 Saints and 6-3 Panthers in the NFC South. Atlanta should have arguably won last week if Julio Jones didn’t drop a sitter from Matt Ryan. The running game for the Falcons has gone missing of late and it will be on Matt Ryan’s arm to lead them to victory, with Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee playing out of his skin. The Wolf is playing the narrative that the Cowboys could be flat here after their win over the Chiefs last week and will welcome the Eagles to Dallas in a divisional match-up next week. The Falcons to fly with their season on the line.
Best: Atlanta -3 ($2)

New England @ Denver – (Mon 12:30pm)
There is two keep factors heading into this clash and both of them favour the Patriots. One of them is Broncos QB Brock Osweiler and the other is that the Patriots are coming off the bye and have had plenty of time to prepare for the out-of-sorts Broncos. The Broncos defence can limit the run, but look for Rob Gronkowski and the Patriots receiving backs to give the Broncos linebackers headaches all night. It will on Osweiler’s arm to move the chains, with the Patriots reasonably strong against the run. The Patriots don’t have the best record in Denver (2-6 ATS in their last 8 games), but it’s impossible to trust Brock! Despite the poor record in Denver, the Pats are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 road games.
Best: New England -7.5 ($2)

Miami @ Carolina – (Tues 12:30pm)
The Wolf can’t believe he is saying this, but Jay Cutler actually looks good last week. It did help that big aerial threat DeVante Parker was back, while Jarvis Landry is a target monster capable of moving the chains. Panthers rookie Christian McCaffrey had his best game of his short career, but won’t have the same luxury running the ball here against a Dolphins side which is strong against the run. The Panthers were lucky to get the win over the Falcons last week and could be in for a flat spot here. The Panthers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games, while the Dolphins are 5-0 ATS in their past 5 meetings. You can never go chips in on a side led by Cutler, but The Wolf is keen on the Fins with the +9 start in this contest.
Best: Miami +9 ($1.91)

The Wolf’s Best Bets: 61-64-4
