With the International break in full swing it’s no surprise to see Football as the feature this weekend as we see both Euro 2020 Qualifiers and NFL make up this weekends mixed sports offering.
Both Teams to Score – Kosovo vs England
Kosovo haven’t failed to score in a home match since October 2017 and, having already showed they have the technical talent to open England up at Wembley whilst England bagged five against Kosovo at Wembley, six Bulgaria and seven against Montenegro. England also scored 5 in Montenegro away from home.
Minnesota Vikings -9.5 Alternate Point Spread vs Denver Broncos
The Broncos simply won’t be able to score enough to stay within the spread in this one. Kirk Cousins and the Vikings’ offense is clicking on all cylinders and should continue their success against the Broncos. But the key will be the Vikings’ 5th ranked DVOA run defense shutting down RB Phillip Lindsay as this will force QB Brandon Allen to try to win the game with his arm, which in turn should lead to plenty of mistakes and turnovers.
New York Jets +3.5 Alternate Point Spread @ Washington Redskins
The Jets are in a good position to win this game as they head down to Washington D.C. Both offenses have been struggling and cancel each other out, but the advantage lies with the Jets on the defensive side of the ball. The Redskins’ have the 23rd ranked DVOA defense while the Jets’ is 13th by the same metric, and New York’s 2nd ranked DVOA run defense will be able to slow down the heart of the Washington attack and make it tough for rookie QB Dwayne Haskins to win the game with his arm.
Over 2.5 Match Goals – Albania vs France
The hosts have scored eight goals across their last three home games. They are aiming to build on a run which has seen over 2.5 goals land in four of their last five matches. We’re backing the same again here, with the French hitting four goals in their clash with Albania. With 23 goals in nine matches, France have the talent to rack up a big win here, so over 2.5 goals is our pick in this clash.
Iceland -1 vs Moldova
Iceland beat Moldova 3-0 in September’s reverse fixture and the hosts have lost their last six international matches while the visitors have won four of their last seven matches. The performances of both teams heading into this weekends’ clash only add weight to our prediction for a -1 handicap bet on the visitors, as Moldova have conceded two or more goals in five of their last six matches and Iceland have scored two or more goals in four of their last six matches.
Josh Jacobs Anytime Try Scorer – Oakland Raiders vs Cincinnati Bengals
The Raiders should have no problem moving the ball and once they get in the redzone they have loved getting the ball into the hands of their rookie RB. Jacobs already has 7 touchdowns this year and should be the first option for Oakland when they get close to the endzone.
