Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers
Line: Steelers -3 | Total: 50
In a game of matchups, the biggest one will occur along the line of scrimmage between the Browns' offensive line and the Steelers' pass rush. Cleveland wants to come in, run the football and let QB Baker Mayfield operate off play action. But, if the Steelers are able to slow down the ground game, that puts Mayfield in the crossfire of the pass rush, and he does not handle pressure particularly well. Also, Pittsburgh's offense is starting to find its rhythm and big-play capability. Lay the points.
Kayvon’s Pick: Steelers -3
Denver Broncos at New England Patriots
Line: Patriots -7.5 | Total: 44
Denver will be without top running back Melvin Gordon and No. 1 tight end Noah Fant. On the flip side, the Pats get their two most important players back in Cam Newton and Stephon Gilmore. I generally don't like giving this many points but don’t over think this one. Give me Belichick and the Patriots.
Kayvon’s Pick: Patriots -7.5
Cincinnati Bengals at Indianapolis Colts
Line: Bengals +8 | Total: 46
The Colts may have put together a pair of blowout home wins against bad teams already, but I just don't think it's wise to make them huge favorites. The Bengals pass defense has actually been solid to date, and that's helped Cincinnati stay in every game this season prior to the debacle against the Ravens. And even though the Colts defense has done a great job this year, Joe Burrow has shown the ability to cover through the backdoor late if needed. I don't necessarily think he'll have to do that here because I don't see the Colts scoring a ton of points, but it's nice to know he could. You can also tease this one up to give Bengals an even bigger cushion if that makes you feel better.
Kayvon’s Picks: Bengals +8
Los Angeles Rams at San Francisco 49ers
Line: Rams -2.5 | Total: 51
Los Angeles does a fantastic job of getting out of the gate early on offense. So much so that it puts a lot of strain on the opposing offense to match the pace. Judging by how ineffective San Francisco's offense has been the last couple of weeks, the 49ers may not be built to do that just yet. Expect Aaron Donald and that Rams defense to continue to keep the 49ers running in place.
Kayvon’s Pick: Rams -2.5
