Lorenzo’s Lock is a weekly series with our partner Gannett Media and part of Bet For the Win. It includes 3 picks for the upcoming NFL weekend.
NFL week 8 is here and so is Lorenzo with his picks, brought to you by Tipico Sportsbook! After an entertaining Week 7, Lorenzo is back to deliver his locks of the week.
PRIME TIME JOE
Let’s starting things off with team Lorenzo has been keeping an eye on after drastically improving in the past few weeks. Lorenzo thinks the Bengals are back to their Super Bowl contending form from last season. Joe Burrow and Ja’Maar Chase have been explosive recently, and Lorenzo thinks this dynamic duo will be too hot for the Browns to handle. Even though the Browns are at home, their banged-up offense will make it hard for them to compete with their interstate rivals who have been going off lately.
Lorenzo is locking in Cincinnati -2.5.
KING HENRY BREAKS OUT
Moving on to Lorenzo’s next lock where he is riding with Tennessee in any game against a divisional rival. The Titans are hot and have won four games in a row and have covered in each game. Their opponent, the Texans, have been a surprisingly good play this season. They are 4-2 against the spread, but Lorenzo thinks that they won’t be able to cover since they have to deal with Derrick Henry. Huston has the worst rush defense in the league, Derick Henry is licking his chops just thinking about the stats he is going to put up. Lorenzo is confident about this one going the Titans way.
Lorenzo is locking in Ten -3.5
FULL STRENGTH SAINTS
Finally, Lorenzo’s last lock has a team that he feels has massive value. The Saints have lost three of their last 4 games, and only covered in two of those games. Keep in mind those games were played without Jameis Winston, who might be back for this game. The Saints lineup could potentially get a huge revamp since Michael Thomas, Marshon Lattimore, and Jarvis Landry could be back in the lineup. If they all can come back from injury, not only will they cover, but they could beat Vegas outright.
Lorenzo is locking in NO +1.5
We hope you fans are ready for Week 7's slate of games. Please enjoy the games and remember, Lorenzo's Locks are BOOSTED from +556 to +630 live in Tipico Sportsbook on desktop and in the mobile app on the App Store and Google Play store.
