Written by The Best National Football League Handicapper Bobby Wallace.

Charliessports.com produces it for Football News. NFL Weekly Point Spread Picks are the best in the industry and will continue through the Super Bowl in February of 2019. Determining point spread winners in the NFL requires understanding coaching, motivation, depth charts and situations. We are 15-5 the first three weeks on NFL Betting Predictions, our Thursday-Sunday Football ATS Picks are second to none.

The (2-1) SU and 1-2 ATS reigning Super Bowl Champions Philadelphia Eagles beat Indianapolis 20-16 last week at home.

Philadelphia is 1-7-1 ATS their last nine in week four of the NFL season.

The OVER is 2-0-1 the last three between the teams dating back to 2006. The Eagles won 42-34 in 2014, the last time the teams played.

Philadelphia is 10-4 ATS their previous fourteen vs. Teams that have a winning record.

For a team that went winless in the preseason the (2-1) SU/ATS Tennessee Titans are headed in the right direction.

After beating AFC South division favorite, Jacksonville as a 10-point road UNDERDOG confidence is building around the facility.

Tennessee is 4-0 ATS their last four at home with 7 of 8 staying UNDER vs. Teams with a winning record at Nissan Stadium.

Kickoff will be Sunday, September 30, 2018. Game time is at 1:00 PM EST at Nissan Stadium in Music City near downtown Nashville, Tennessee. The FOX Television Network will be broadcasting. The Betting Line has Philadelphia as a three and a half point road favorite against the point spread. The betting odds total is forty-one points for Sunday’s contest.

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz was instrumental in last weeks victory with 255 passing yards with a touchdown and an interception.

Head Coach Doug Pederson believes his team is ready to defend their title. With running back Jay Ajayi, questionable Sunday Corey Clement will get the majority of carries for the third-ranked ground game in the league.

The UNDER is has cashed in for the betting public Philadelphia’s last five after gaining more than 150 yards rushing in their previous game.

The UNDER is also 4-0 the last four Eagles games after an ATS loss.

The Eagles defense has allowed 55 points this season which ranks fourth in the NFL. Last week they held Indianapolis to 209 total yards, 164 through the air. The unit gives up an average of 18.1 ppg, ninth in the league.

Tampa Bay scored twenty-seven in week two, but Tennessee likes to run the football which plays to their strength. Doug Pederson will devise a plan to stop the run and force Marcus Mariota to beat them with his arm.

Bovada.Lv, list the 2018-19 Philadelphia Eagles at +1,100 to repeat as Super Bowl Champions.
The Tennessee Titans are off to a 2-0 record vs. AFC south opponents after last week’s field goal fest in Jacksonville.

The OVER is 4-0 the Titans last four when they score 15 points or less in the previous game.

However, the UNDER has been a good wager for the betting public cashing in seven of eight at home vs. teams with a winning record.

Tennessee is 5-13-1 ATS their last nineteen home games vs. Opponents with a winning record.

Running Backs, Derrick Henry (139) Dion Lewis (143) yards lead the 15th ranked rushing attack in the league. Tennessee has 852 total yards of offense, 23rd in the NFL.

The Titans defense did a masterful job against a potent Jacksonville running game last week; they’ve been getting it done all season ranking fourth overall. 50 points surrendered by the unit is 17th in the National Football League. The majority was in the opener at Miami where a weather delay produced 34 fourth-quarter points combined.

A smallish Titans secondary will get tested Sunday by one of the most physically imposing groups of receiver they’ll face this season.

Bovada.Lv, list the Tennessee Titans at +350 to win the 2018-19 AFC South Division Title.

Are the Philadelphia Eagles going to be one-hit wonders?

Are the Philadelphia Eagles going to be one-hit wonders?

Skies were clear over Cleveland on Thursday night. Temperatures were cooling from an 80ºF midday high towards a low in the 50s. WKYC even waxed romantic over the streaking white airplane contrails accenting the purple twilight. It was perfect football weather, offering the visiting Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles no excuse for their 5-0 defeat.

CharliesSports’ Football Picks are industry leaders.
We’ll bring them to you through the Super Bowl in February of 2019.

Results in preseason are allegedly meaningless. Coaches are evaluating players. Those whose jobs are guaranteed are working into game-shape. Even in the third game, starters still play just the first half. That said the Eagles are winless this summer. Following 17-point blowouts to Pittsburgh (31-14) and New England (37-20), Philly’s defense can be happy conceding only a field goal. The safety is on the offense, which netted 32 points over the three games, including the negative total on Thursday night.

The evening’s deficit might’ve been worse had Browns starting quarterback, Tyrod Taylor, not injured his wrist in the first quarter. Rookie backup Baker Mayfield, selected no.1 in the 2018 NFL Draft left after two series to go through concussion protocol after throwing a red-zone interception. He was cleared but the game was there for the taking. Mike Groh’s offence needed only one scoring drive to get the job done.

Carson Wentz remains out with a cruciate ligament injury but the offensive line failed to protect Nick Foles. The Super Bowl hero threw two interceptions and fumbled a ball from one of the six sacks Cleveland registered on the night.

It was an abject performance against a club that is 1-31 in the past two seasons and mired in a decade-long streak of losing seasons. Cleveland, 1-1 in the preseason coming into the game, are improved but not that much.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson should be concerned. With the worst performance arriving in game three, he can’t blame the outing on rust.

Nor can he blame the NFL’s hard salary cap. Fans worried over their championship team breaking up in the offseason. Thirteen players, including four starters, were eligible for one form of free agency or the other. LeGarrette Blount’s 766 yards departed for Detroit and receiver Torrey Smith’s 435 were traded to Carolina. Each scored two touchdowns on the season. Blount was 31, though, and Smith will be 30 in January. Those are roster moves you expect to make.

Wentz’s status is the biggest setback, but Foles proved in February he could step into the role. The Eagles can’t let expectations rocket into the stratosphere after their long-awaited title. At the same time, it’s not unrealistic to expect them to handle the Browns.

The coming season won’t be easy. Every team is going to be gunning for the Super Bowl champions. Legendary champions like Joe Montana’s 1982 49ers often fail to make the playoffs the following season. From 2006-13, defending champions either failed to make the playoffs or lost in the first round. The Eagles are beginning to look like one of those teams.

Philly were improbable winners, last season. They gave Tom Brady and New England everything they could handle and then some to win Super Bowl LII. The Pats will be back, though. They always are. Bill Belichick never lets his squad relax. He never accepts an excuse. Even losing Brady to injury or suspension didn’t stopped the five-time champions. Doug Pederson must find a way to keep the competitive fire burning at Lincoln Financial Field.

Is the Cleveland Browns draft class new hope or another false dawn?

Is the Cleveland Browns draft class new hope or another false dawn?

What is the most wonderful thing about the offseason? No matter what happened last year, you can let your imagination off the leash.

NFL Weekly Picks.

Life is cruel, however. The first things to go after the initial meaningful game are hopes and dreams.

Occasionally, though, the unexpected happens. Everything falls into place. Hope is fulfilled, dreams realized, and your club goes all the way. In 2017, the Houston Astros won the World Series. Three months later, the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl.

In the latter case, a few thousand memes had to be revised to fit a new team.

If I were Eagles owner, Jeffrey Lurie, the first person I’d call would be Cleveland owner Jimmy Haslam. The Browns were winless in 2017. They’ve only won four games in the last three seasons and had just two winning seasons since their reincarnation in 1999.

Hi Jimmy? It’s Jeff. Listen I’ve got all these old Super Bowl memes lying around that we can’t use anymore…

Of course, some aren’t transferrable.

Dad, what’s a Super Bowl ring? How should I know, son? We’re brown.

That doesn’t make sense. And can a color see its shadow?

On the other hand, Ned Stark is universal. You can put Cleveland, Detroit, Buffalo, Minnesota, whoever, in there and it works. It could be leased out to baseball, basketball, and soccer trolls, too. Haslam would see a return on his investment. The Back to the Future meme offers double value. After all, Marty McFly’s mentor is Doc Brown. It’s a natural fit.

Getting good value might be a problem for Lurie, however. The Browns already have some existing inventory.

Right now, there is optimism in the Dawg Pound. Cleveland is a .500 team again at least until Week 1. There may be reason to hold out hope. The Browns had a strong draft, landing Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield and Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward in the first round, as well as Georgia running back Nick Chubb in the second. The team also acquired quarterback Tyrod Taylor from Buffalo, receiver Jarvis Landry from the Dolphins, and right tackle Chris Hubbard from Pittsburgh. Left tackle Joe Thomas retired but Vegas sport books have the Browns as early favorites in two games, Week 3 v the New York Jets and Week 15 when the Cincinnati Bengals come to town.

It’s encouraging to think the Browns might be competitive in 2018 but let’s not jump the gun. They’ve made exciting personnel moves in the past. Tim Couch never panned out. Johnny Manziel, Robert Griffin III. If anything, Baker Mayfield might deserve our sympathy. The Oklahoma quarterback has a different skill set than Griffin and more self-control than Manziel but is another unique personality. The team has already demonstrated it can’t deal with characters, preferring to cookie-cutter everyone in the squad.

Nor does the executive show patience or long-term thinking. Its five first-round picks in the 2017/18 NFL Drafts were courtesy former Executive VP of Football Operations Sashi Brown’s draft policy. Building a club through the draft is a multi-season endeavour. It didn’t happen quickly enough for owner Jimmy Haslam. He fired Brown in December to resolve a power struggle between the executive and head coach Hue Jackson.

Brown wasn’t perfect as a GM. He took a gamble on Griffin’s injury history and lost. He traded away a second-rounder to Philadelphia that turned out to be Carson Wentz. As if the quarterback was guaranteed to enjoy the same success in Cleveland as he has in Philly.

Brown clashed with Jackson because his focus was on collecting draft picks rather than paying too much to free agents or in trades with other teams. The team is now benefitting from that policy and likely will for the next few seasons.

Like Jackson, Haslam is impatient. When he hired both Jackson and Brown in January 2016, it was his fourth franchise reboot in five years as owner. It’s easy to imagine the team struggling early, Jackson turning to Mayfield too soon in the young quarterback’s tutelage, the team struggling further, and Haslam initiating the search for a new coach before season’s end. It’s more fun to dream, however.
