Did you get on our two winning bets from Monday Night Football earlier this week? Well if you didn’t we have got a tremendous treble for Sunday’s games for you to get involved in. With no Thursday Night Football because of a postponed game we have to move straight into the Sunday games.

 

Atlanta Falcons vs Minnesota Vikings

The Atlanta Falcons have had a poor first five weeks falling to an 0-5 record. This saw the firing of head coach Dan Quinn and General Manager Thomas Dimitroff after the loss to the Panthers. Defensive Coordinator Raheem Morris has been named the interim Head Coach. Despite this it is still the same coaches that were involved with Dan Quinn and the same players. Matt Ryan has not been shockingly bad but he has thrown three interceptions and his completion percentage is only 63.2.

Another problem for Ryan has been the injury to Julio Jones. Jones has only had 213 yards and not caught a touchdown whilst suffering with a hamstring injury. Calvin Ridley has been a brief bright spark receiving 485 yards and four touchdowns. Along with this Russell Gage has looked ok and Todd Gurley has been solid in the run game. However, the real problem has been the defense who have suffered lots of injuries. The secondary is down to the bare bones and the defensive line have not been great.

The Minnesota Vikings have also had a poor first five weeks and are currently 1-4 going into this weekend. However the Vikings have played some tough matchups against the Packers, Colts, Titans and Seahawks. Also they have put up 26 points or more in four of their five games. Kirk Cousins is another QB who has been poor passing for 1,132 yards and scoring eight touchdowns but also seven interceptions. His completion percentage is only 64.0 and if he can cut out the interceptions he would do well.

Dalvin Cook has been excellent for the Vikings rushing for 489 yards and seven touchdowns. Unfortunately it looks like he will miss this game but Alexander Mattison is a great replacement. Adam Thielen has also looked good receiving 364 yards and six touchdowns. Justin Jefferson has been a good option for Cousins and is a great prospect for the future. Defensively the Vikings have given up at least 23 points in each game and this is where they struggle the most.

Although both teams have struggled the Vikings have looked more likely to improve. Not only that, but they are playing at home and have a good run game. The Falcons still have a banged up defense and if Julio Jones is out they will struggle to put up the points. Due to that the obvious bet is Minnesota Vikings to win the game at 1/2.

The Bet : Minnesota Vikings to win the game at 1/2

 

Chicago Bears vs Carolina Panthers

The Chicago Bears have been the surprise package of the season so far standing at 4-1. You can make excuses as to why they have that record but at the end of the day they are winning games. Nick Foles took over the starting QB job in week three and is looking alright. He is not going to put up any big numbers but he is functional and can do a good job for the Bears. Foles has got a great receiving option in Allen Robinson who has had a decent start to the season. He has had 421 yards and two touchdowns in a low scoring team over the first five weeks.

Not only does Foles have Robinson but he also has good options in Anthony Miller and tight end Jimmy Graham. Graham has looked good in these first five weeks picking up 169 yards and four touchdowns. Also the run game is looking a bit better with David Montgomery getting 247 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively the Bears have been decent and have only given up over 20 points in two of their games.

The Carolina Panthers have been another surprising team who are currently 3-2. Given that they were 0-2 after week two it has been an impressive turnaround to be 3-2. The only negative is that they have played some poorer teams in the last three weeks. Teddy Bridgewater has been a solid and calming influence at QB passing for 1,461 yards and six touchdowns. He has got some great passing options in D.J Moore, Robby Anderson and Curtis Samuel which are making a big difference.

The biggest surprise about the Panthers is how well they have performed with the loss of Christian McCaffery. McCaffery has missed the last three games and Mike Davis has had a great three weeks. He has 426 all purpose yards and three touchdowns with the majority being in the last three weeks. Ian Thomas also provide a good redzone option for Bridgewater at the tight end position. Defensively the Panthers have gotten better as the season has gone on and kept their opponents scores to a minimum.

This game looks like it is going to be a low scoring game mainly due to two improving defenses. Both QB’s are experienced and not likely to put up big numbers. However, the Bears know how to win ugly and their defense is better than the Panthers so 1/1 is a good price for the Bears to win.

The Bet : Chicago Bears to win the game outright at 1/1

 

Houston Texans vs Tennessee Titans

The Houston Texans have had a poor start to the season sitting at 1-4 after a bad five weeks. Bill O’Brien was fired before last Sunday’s game and the Texans picked up their first win against Jacksonville. Despite the win they still look vulnerable and will struggle again this weekend. Deshaun Watson has had an average start passing for 1,451 yards and nine touchdowns. His o-line has not helped though as he has been sacked 17 times and thrown five interceptions.

David Johnson has managed 400 all purpose yards but only two touchdowns which is a little disappointing. With the loss of DeAndre Hopkins there needed to be someone to step up and unfortunately that has not happened. Will Fuller, Randall Cobb and Brandin Cooks have all scored touchdowns but not consistently. Defensively the Texans have been poor but they have played some tough teams. Apart from against the Jags they have given up 28 points or more in their other four games.

The Tennessee Titans have carried on from last year looking strong at 4-0. There have been some unsettling times for the Titans due to a Covid outbreak but that has not stopped them. They played the Bills last Tuesday night and looked very good against another good team. Ryan Tannehill has been very consistent over the four games and has done everything needed from him. He has passed for 1,004 yards and nine touchdowns but also has only thrown one interception.

With A.J Brown missing time through injury, Corey Davis has been the main wide receiver for Tannehill. Adam Humphries has also been missing with Covid. The main weapons for Tannehill have been tight end Jonnu Smith and running back Derrick Henry. Henry has rushed 376 yards and four touchdowns and Smith has had 221 passing yards with five touchdowns. Both guys have looked great so far this season and it is expected to continue. Defensively the Titans have not been as good as last year but had a very good game on Tuesday night.

The Titans are becoming a resilient and strong team with some very good offensive weapons. The Texans are not as good as they were and defensively have been poor. Although the Texans have Deshaun Watson, one of the best QB’s in the game, he cant do everything. The Titans are looking good and it would be a surprise to see them lose this game at home. Therefore the best bet for the game is the Tennessee Titans to win the game at 25/48.

The Bet : Tennessee Titans to win the game outright at 25/48

 

If you put all three games together into a treble then the odds are around 3.66/1
