NFL Match Previews

LA Rams @ San Francisco – (Fri 10:25am AEST)
The winless 49ers will host the LA Rams in a NFC West divisional rivalry to kick off Week 3 of the NFL. The 49ers have won the last three affairs and won the most recent encounter 22-21 in LA last year. The Wolf is expecting the running backs from the respective sides to get plenty of work here and both sides to stick to their strengths, which has clearly been Todd Gurley for the Rams and Carlos Hyde for the 49ers through the first two weeks of the season. The running backs will take plenty of time off the clock and as a result, The Wolf is expecting a low-scoring game, making the unders his best play here. The unders is 4-1 is the last 5 games between the 49ers and Rams, while unders is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in San Francisco. Back the unders with confidence.
Best: Under 39.5 ($1.91)

Houston @ New England – (Mon 3am AEST)
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was back to his best against the Saints in Week 2, throwing for 447 yards and two TDs in a completely dominant display after the Patriots shock Week 1 loss to the Chiefs. The Patriots currently have a banged up receiving corp, with Rob Gronkowski, Chris Hogan and Rex Burkhead restricted in practice this week. The Texans defence will present a greater challenge to the Patriots than what the Saints dished up last week, but the struggles still remain on offence, scoring just 13 points over the struggling Bengals last week. It was a tough night for rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson, but he made up for it with a scintillating touchdown run. It doesn’t come much tougher for a rookie QB than a trip to Foxborough. The Patriots have won the last six clashes against the Texans dating back to 2012 and won last year’s divisional clash 34-16. The stats don’t paint a pretty picture for Bill O’Brien’s men. The Texans are 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 meetings with the Pats and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games in New England. The Wolf says to take the Pats to cover and the overs.
Best: New England -13.5 ($1.91)

Cincinnati @ Green Bay – (Mon 6:25am AEST)
The Packers will be looking to bounce back after their road loss to the Falcons last week and The Wolf is expecting a fired up performance from future hall of fame quarterback, Aaron Rodgers against the toothless Bengals. Rodger’s No.1 target, Jordy Nelson was an early casualty against the Falcons, but by all reports he’s looking a good chance of taking his spot against the Bengals. The Packers are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following an ATS loss and should have no problem covering the 8.5 line at Lambeau.
Best: Green Bay -8.5 ($1.91)

Oakland @ Washington – (Mon 10:30am AEST)
The Raiders have looked good over the opening two weeks and should be too strong for a banged up Redskins side, who could be missing RB1 Rob Kelley and tight end Jordan Reed for this clash. Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree had an afternoon out against the Jets last week, cashing in three touchdowns and 60 yards from six receptions. He could be in for another big match, if Josh Norman shadows Amari Cooper here. The Raiders are 10-3 ATS in their last 1 tHE3 road games and the road team in the past five Redskins and Raiders clashes is 5-0 ATS. The Raiders look the better team at the moment and have scored a combined 71 points in their first two matches this season, while Redskins QB Kirk Cousins looks rusty and needs to rediscover his 2016 form for Washington to match up here.
Best: Oakland -3 ($1.87)

Dallas @ Arizona – (Tues 10:30am AEST)
The Wolf will be the first to admit he got the Cowboys and Broncos match completely wrong last week as the Broncos piled on 42 points and limited Cowboys gun running back Ezekiel Elliott to just 8 yards from 9 carries. This shapes up as a great bounce back spot for the Cowboys against a Cardinals side that is still reeling after the loss of running back David Johnson for an extended period and only just scraped home against the awful Colts in OT. The Cardinals have played their opening two matches away from home, so will enjoy their first hit-out of the season in front of their fans. The Cowboys can’t play any worse than they did against the Broncos and still have one of the best running backs in the game on their side. Meanwhile, the Cards are looking lost without DJ and QB Carson Palmer is looking a day closer to retirement each time he steps out on the field. It feels like a trap game, but the Cardinals are 4-11 ATS in their last 15 home games and the Cowboys have more explosive talent on their roster.
Best: Dallas -3 ($1.87)

The Wolf’s Best Bets: 15-15-1
