Thanks to a sleepy Bears team, the Intelligence Index suffered a bit of a down week, but we'll be staying away from London this week and return to our winning ways.
Cincinnati Bengals @ Baltimore Ravens (-11)
So... the Ravens may not be the world beaters we expect, BUT, they do appear to be sort of squad that beats up on bad teams, as they did against Miami and Arizona. Enter the 0-5 Bengals, a perfect get right recipe for the run heavy Ravens, who can rely on talent and their ground game without needing the deep bag of tricks that is required to beat top notch competition.
THE PICK: Ravens -500
Tennessee Titans @ Denver Broncos (-2)
They may have burned us last week, but we'll go back to the Titans as short dogs in Denver this week. Tennessee still sit third in the index while Denver are in 27th despite a nice win in Los Angeles and Joe Flacco still does not inspire confidence. Expect the enigmatic Titans to bounce back.
THE PICK: Titans +115
So, we usually try to offer up at least three No Brainer picks, but we will not force bets when we are not seeing value, and with Index cellar dwellers Miami and Washington playing each other and top ranked New England and Chicago not playing this Sunday, our choices are just limited this week, so let's just build some momentum and come back with more picks next week!
