Jacksonville -3 at NY Giants (43): Much of the Jags’ success can be attributed to having hired former two time Super Bowl winning coach with the Giants Tom Coughlin as head of football operations, which adds extra intrigue to this game. With a now balanced offense and a defense that can now be more aggressive against Jags QB Blake Bortles an upset should not be a surprise. NY GIANTS

Tampa Bay +9.5 at New Orleans (49.5): Tampa’s defense is a concern whereas the Saints were much improved last season. The Saints are likely to be aggressive early and force Tampa to play from behind. But laying nearly double digits can be very hazardous to the bankroll and if the Saints are able to exploit the Tampa “D” early the better play should be on the Total. OVER

Houston +6 at New England (51): These teams played a wildly entertaining game last season with the Patriots winning, 36-33. The combination of QB Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick, who continually make the right decisions at the right time, makes it difficult to call for an outright upset although that is clearly possible. Rather than get greedy let’s be content with what seems to be a generous number of points. HOUSTON
