fluoro selection: Panthers 23, Saints 20.

Jaguar (+7) at Chargers

take MDSThe Jaguars performed nice soccer for brand spanking new coach Doug Pederson, and the upset right here would not shock me, however I feel they’d lose to Justin Herbert and offense from the Chargers.

take MDSJimmy Garoppolo is healthier than Trey Lance, which implies the 49ers have a greater probability of successful within the brief time period, as a result of Lance’s harm was unlucky for the 49ers’ long-term plans. They are going to win a troublesome match towards Russell Wilson and the Broncos.

MDS choice: 49ers 24, Broncos 20.

Take Florio: One thing will not be proper with this line. Broncos are intertwined within the mechanics of play. 49ers have an elite roster. Now that the quarterback state of affairs is resolved, search for the 49ers to begin thriving.

Cowboys (+2.5) in Giants
