New York Jets at Miami Dolphins

This is the first divisional game hosted by Wembley as part of the annual International series of games. Both teams lost last weekend and have flaws. The Jets are 2.5 point favourites for the game, in large part because their defense is one of the best in the league both up front and in the secondary. The Dolphins went into the season with high expectations but with only one win in their first three games are under-performing at this early stage, looking especially weak in their secondary and with inconsistency on the fofensive side of the ball

I like the Jets to win a low scoring game. The points angle is anticipated in over/unders on total points of 41 so will stick to Jets -2.5 at 10/11 with William Hill

Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins

The Redskins are a home underdog here in a divisional game against a side in the Eagles struggling for an identity. They beat the Jets on Sunday but were helped by being +3 in the turnover ratio and a punt return touchdown. I wouldn’t say yet that this is indicative of a turnround in fortunes for a side with inconsistencies on both sides of the ball

The Redskins also go into this game with a 1-2 record having lost to the Giants last Thursday night. They have ten days break before this game and one of the most punishing running attacks in the league with rookie Matt Jones particularly impressive. expect them to run the ball a lot, control time of possession and not give quarterback Kirk Cousins too much to do.

In what should be a close game, the Redskins +3.5 at 10/11 with Bet365 is a value bet.

Oakland Raiders at Chicago Bears

Oakland go into this game as road favourites for the first time in three years and only the second time since 2005, speaking to their recent history of having one of the worst records of any NFL franchise. However a few good recent drafts are infusing the roster with talent particularly in offensive skill positions and pass rusher and they are gradually improving. Weaknesses still exist, particularly in the secondary but they go into this game worthy favourites

The Bears meanwhile are 0-3 and set a 35 year a NFL record against the Seahawks in the 26-0 loss last weekend, punting on every possession. Whilst the Raiders aren’t the Seahawks, the Bears without their starting quarterback and havintg a deficiency of talent on defense are set for a difficult season

I like the Raiders -3 points at Evens with BetVictor here
