Jacksonville is just 1-9 straight up and 2-7-1 against the spread in its last 10 games at home, but is hoping that new quarterback Blake Bortles can help turn things around. The computers don't think he will, expecting Pittsburgh to pick up a comfortable 27.2 to 12.9 victory. This score would easily cover the spread for the Steelers, who are going off at -6 at sportsbooks monitored by

Seattle at Washington on Monday night is another game in which the computers are  predicting an easy win and cover for the road team. Seattle is 7-2 straight up and 6-3 against the spread in its last nine games as a road favorite and is a 7-point favorite on Monday night against Washington. The computer churned out a score of 33.9 to 12.6 in the Seahawks' favor.

The New Orleans Saints may be just 2-9 straight up and against the spread in their last 11 games on the road, but they are a completely different team when they play at home. The Saints are 9-0 straight up and 8-0-1 against the spread in their last nine home games, and are projected to pick up another SU win at 21.4 to 12.6 over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday. Tampa Bay is a 10-point underdog according to sportsbooks monitored by, meaning that the Bucs could earn a cover if that score is accurate.

The Denver Broncos host the undefeated Arizona Cardinals on Sunday in a game in which Peyton Manning will be gunning for his 500th touchdown pass. The computers anticipate that Arizona could be an excellent value pick at +7.5 with the Cardinals being picked to win the game outright by a score of 32.9 to 32.4. This type of score would soar over the posted total of 45.

The only other outright upset being predicted by the computers this week is Atlanta over the New York Giants. The Falcons are projected to win 24.5 to 22.6 as a 4-point road underdog.
