We have quite a few upsets this past week and underdogs continued to be a strong play as well as short underdogs of a field goal or less.

Favorites: 8-6 SU and 5-8-1 ATS (Season: 82-48-2 SU and 64-74-4 ATS)    
Favorite of 7 or more: 5-1 SU and 3-3 ATS (Season: 31-7 SU and 19-18-1 ATS)
Favorites of 3 or less: 1-1 SU and 0-1-1 ATS  (Season: 27-27-2 SU and 23-30-3 ATS)
Home Underdogs: 2-2 SU and 2-2 ATS (Season: 17-18-2 SU and 23-14 ATS)
Pick Games: Home team 4-2 ATS

This all leads to our score-based Power Ratings, which we introduced this season. These type of ratings are based not only on records but on how teams did against the point spread, which gives us a broader view when it comes to understanding the strengths of a team when making lines.

Here are this week's ranking and team updates. Your comments are always welcome. 


1. New Orleans Saints

Odds: +400 
Record: 8-1 SU and 7-2 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 1st

So much for a letdown by New Orleans after three rugged battles, scoring a season-high 51 points and winning by 34 at Cincinnati. The Saints are 9-1 ATS off a nonconference contest.


2. Kansas City Chiefs

Odds: +500 
Record: 9-1 SU and 8-2 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 2nd

Kansas City had rare going thru the motions win in a non-cover against Arizona as large favorites. With the L.A. Rams on deck, it was understandable.


3. Los Angeles Rams

Odds: +350 
Record: 9-1 SU and 4-5-1 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 3rd

The Rams keeping winning by they are only 1-5-1 ATS in last seven and that defense really needs CB Aqib Talib back. An absolutely must-see game on MNF against K.C.


4. Minnesota Vikings

Odds: +1600 
Record: 5-3-1 SU and 4-3-2 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 4th

Minnesota's back in action after a bye and it's a battle for first place in the NFC North at Chicago. Will Kirk Cousins play big or disappear as he did in New Orleans loss?


5. Pittsburgh Steelers

Odds: +900 
Record: 6-2-1 SU and 6-3 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 7th

Pittsburgh's performance against Carolina was magnificent and with defense improving, there's a chance of making the Super Bowl. The Steelers have a revenge matchup with slumping Jacksonville next.


6. Los Angeles Chargers

Odds: +1200 
Record: 7-2 SU and 5-4 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 8th

The Chargers did what was needed to oust an awful Oakland bunch while still covering the spread. L.A. South at -7 over Denver seems like a low on opening line.


7. New England Patriots

Odds: +650 
Record: 7-3 and 6-4 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 5th

New England was completely manhandled by Tennessee and their hopes of having AFC home-field edge have diminished significantly. This is not the Pats team of old.


8. Carolina Panthers

Odds: +2800 
Record: 6-3 SU and 5-4  ATS
Last Week's Rank: 6th

Carolina was totally unprepared for Pittsburgh and was slaughtered 52-21. Panthers are back on the road face passion-less Lions.


9. Chicago Bears

Odds: +1800 
Record: 6-3 SU and ATS
Last Week's Rank: 11th

Chicago jumps into the Top 10 of our Power Ratings for the first time this season. Everything about the Bears is legit and they find many ways to score points. They take control of NFC North with a win over the Vikings.


10. Seattle Seahawks

Odds: +6600 
Record: 4-5 and 5-3-1 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 9th

Seattle had a chance to for come from behind wins against both Los Angeles teams but came up short. Now it's the first of many must-wins for Seahawks to stay in playoff conversation starting Thursday against Green Bay. 


11. Houston Texans

Odds: +2500 
Record: 6-3 SU and 4-4-1 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 10th

Houston returns to action in a pretty intriguing matchup of first-place teams when they travel to Washington to face the Redskins.


12. Baltimore Ravens

Odds: +6600 
Record: 4-5 SU and ATS
Last Week's Rank: 13th

Baltimore is back in action and might have to finish 6-1 to make playoffs. It starts with revenge conflict at home against Cincinnati who has the 32nd rated pass defense.


13. Tennessee Titans

Odds: +5000 
Record: 5-4 SU and 6-3 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 16th

Tennessee has jumped from 22nd to 13th in two weeks with two extremely impressive wins over Dallas and New England. Next, the Titans face a smoking hot Andrew Luck offense at Indy.


14. Green Bay Packers

Odds: +3300 
Record: 4-4-1 SU and 4-5 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 17th

It was not always pretty, but Green Bay was effective in dicing up the Dolphins. It's back on the road for the Pack and truthfully their season hangs in the balance with away games at Seattle and at Minnesota.


15. Philadelphia Eagles

Odds: +3300 
Record: 4-5 and 3-6 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 12th

If the Eagles off a bye week were less mentally prepared than Dallas on a short week and off a bad loss, is this really a playoff contender? With a depleted secondary, Philadelphia only has to travel to New Orleans to take on Drew Brees.


16. Atlanta Falcons

Odds: +8000 
Record: 4-5 SU and 3-6 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 14th

After making a move in our ratings, Atlanta went back to old ways of being a terrible road outdoor team and was handled by Cleveland. If the Browns could run for 211 yards on Falcons defense, what might Zeke Elliott do for Dallas?

17. Cincinnati Bengals

Odds: +8000 
Record: 5-4 SU and 4-5 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 15th

Thought to have upset possibilities against New Orleans, the Cincinnati defense was so bad they fired their defensive coordinator on Monday. Bengals stay in AFC playoff chase with a win at Baltimore.


18. Dallas Cowboys

Odds: +5000 
Record: 4-5 SU and 3-5-1 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 21st

Dak Prescott said he was PO'ed after Tennessee loss and he was going to do something about it. He and his team were brilliant in the upset at Philly and go for two straight roadies at Atlanta.


19. Indianapolis Colts

Odds: +8000 
Record: 4-5 SU and 5-4 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 19th

Andrew Luck is all the way back and the collection of young offensive linemen and underrated group of tight ends has the Colts offense clicking. Good test with Tennessee in town.


20. Detroit Lions

Odds: +25000 
Record: 3-6 SU and 5-4 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 18th

Detroit fell behind Chicago 26-0 before showing a pulse. Maybe Matt Patricia is the right coach for the Lions, but it might not be with the same group of players.


21. Washington Redskins

Odds: +4000 
Record: 5-4 SU and ATS
Last Week's Rank: 22nd

Washington took the break but don't bend defense to ridiculous levels, surrendering over 500 yards to Tampa Bay and only three points. Rugged test at home for the Redskins against Houston who has won six straight.


22. Jacksonville Jaguars

Odds: +12500 
Record: 3-6 SU and ATS
Last Week's Rank: 20th

What a difference a year makes. The Jacksonville defense was one of the best front to back last season, but they could not have been more out of position as Indy scored four first-half touchdowns. The NFL is cruel and the floundering Jags have Pittsburgh on tap.


23. Denver Broncos

Odds: +25000 
Record: 3-6 SU and 3-5-1 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 24th

Not sure how a bye week will help Denver at the Chargers unless they can go back in time and assemble the same exact team that won the Super Bowl in 2016.


24. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Odds: +75000 
Record: 3-6 SU and ATS
Last Week's Rank: 23rd

In the NFL, when a team accumulates 500 or more yards of offense, they average over 37 points. Tampa Bay had three last week. Next stop, New Jersey, where the Giants play.


25. New York Giants

Odds: +75000 
Record: 2-7 SU and 4-5 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 27th

The Giants got in the win column for a second time this past Monday. The G-Men will have another winnable game at home versus Tampa Bay in Week 11.


26. Cleveland Browns

Odds: +25000 
Record: 3-6-1 SU and 6-4 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 29th

At least the Cleveland is covering spreads and winning a few games. The Browns can finally enjoy an off week and when they return, if they win one more time, that would match the number of victories they had from 2015 to 2017.


27. San Francisco 49ers

Odds: +200000 
Record: 2-8 SU and 3-7 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 25th

The San Francisco defense could not corral the Giants several times on Monday and head into their bye on a downer.


28. Miami Dolphins

Odds: +25000 
Record: 5-5 SU and ATS
Last Week's Rank: 26th

The Dolphins moved the ball on Green Bay frequently but had to settle for four field goals. Maybe Miami can find the end zone during their bye week.


29. Arizona Cardinals

Odds: +100000 
Record: 2-7 SU and 5-4 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 30th

At least the Arizona beat the spread at Kansas City. This week they are staring at a potential victory with the Walking Dead Raiders in town.


30. Buffalo Bills

Odds: +100000 
Record: 3-7 SU and 4-6 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 31st

The Bills are the NFL's out of nowhere team. Matt Barkley was not on an NFL roster just over two weeks ago, gets the call from Buffalo and just after a week he was the Bills best option at quarterback and he his new team teammates hang 41 on the Jets. A full two weeks to savor with bye week.


31. New York Jets

Odds: +75000 
Record: 3-7 SU and ATS          
Last Week's Rank: 28th

The Flyboys were hammered by Buffalo 41-10 by a quarterback who was not on there roster two weeks before the game. For this Gang Green spends the next two weeks one spot ahead of Oakland in our power ratings.


32. Oakland Raiders

Odds: +250000
Record: 1-8 SU and 1-7-1 ATS
Last Week's Rank: 32nd

Oakland took the football on first possession went got inside the one-yard line and could not punch it in for a touchdown. It was all downhill from there, including Derek Carr throwing the ball away on a fourth down play. Off to the desert to meet another bad team.
