Beatpaths was 8-6 last week, for a total record of 75-55. My “personal picks” that conflict with the Beatpaths picks were 1-2, so I’m at 10-9 for the year.
Denver at CLEVELAND: Denver could really help themselves with a win by shedding their beatloss to Jacksonville. Cleveland is playing for a beatwin. Cleveland is favored.
Seattle at MIAMI: Miami’s play yields rewards as they’re favored in a matchup. They actually have a beatpath to Seattle through Buffalo.
GREEN BAY at Minnesota: Green Bay has a beatpath to Minnesota through Indianapolis, as well as a direct beatwin.
New Orleans at ATLANTA: Atlanta has a very long beatpath to New Orleans. If New Orleans wins, then NO->ATL->GB->MIN->NO could be broken apart, which would hurt Atlanta.
TENNESSEE at Chicago: A good test for Tennessee. Both teams are playing for a beatwin here, so a loss would hurt Tennessee. Tennessee is favored.
BALTIMORE at Houston: A fairly even matchup, both teams are playing for a beatwin. Baltimore is favored. I’ll personally pick Houston due to home field advantage.
St. Louis at NY JETS: The NY Jets are favored due to what are probably several beatpaths to St. Louis.
BUFFALO at New England: The closest-matched game of the week, as they’re right next to each other in the rankings. Buffalo is favored. I’ll pick New England due to home field advantage.
JACKSONVILLE at Detroit: Jacksonville has a beatpath to Detroit.
CAROLINA at Oakland: The mismatch of the week, part of the NFC South’s “Demoralize Oakland” project. Carolina is favored due to having a beatpath to Oakland.
Indianapolis at PITTSBURGH: Indianapolis is playing for a beatwin, while Pittsburgh’s beatwin would be beatlooped away due to Jacksonville. Pittsburgh is favored.
KANSAS CITY at San Diego: Kansas City is actually favored due to a brutal beatpath that is pinning down San Diego. This is largely a meaningless game in terms of this week’s results, due to reinforced beatloops. I’ll personally pick San Diego due to home field advantage.
NY GIANTS at Philadelphia: A strange matchup, as neither team has beatlosses, and both teams are fairly low in the rankings. The NY Giants are favored. The Giants are playing for a beatwin, while Philadelphia would continue to have some beatloops to contend with.
San Francisco at ARIZONA: The second most lopsided matchup of the week. Arizona has a beatpath to San Francisco and is favored.
