|Date||Match Up||Rating||Score||Result||Profit||Lead Time||Analysis|
|11-10-19||Vikings v. Cowboys -3||28-24||Loss||-110||48 h 27 m||Show|
The Dallas Cowboys looked like a shaky team Monday Night in a road environment against the Giants. Late third they were able to turn the corner as the defensive line over powered the Giants offensive line. They’ll need a similar defensive effort to overcome an offense that has been sporadic since the first two games. Look for another poor prime time performance from Kirk Cousins and the Cowboys to cover.
|11-10-19||Panthers +5.5 v. Packers||16-24||Loss||-110||45 h 32 m||Show|
The Carolina Panthers have been a team that has taken care of business against subpar teams. Sunday they’ll have a huge step up in class as they travel on the road against the Green Bay Packers. Green Bay comes in off a loss to the Chargers. In years past the offense has struggled in streaks. Look for the Panthers to have a disguised defense and enough offensively to cover the number.
|11-10-19||Rams -3.5 v. Steelers||12-17||Loss||-110||45 h 32 m||Show|
The Rams have changed their offensive philosophy. Unlike a year ago the blowouts have been toned down as the team finds their new strength. Ball control and finishing teams off has been their strength. Pittsburgh has enjoyed the benefit of not traveling on the road for nearly a month. Three straight victories and improved defense have helped masked Rudolph’s issues. Look for the Rams to spring to life and pull away in the second half.
|11-03-19||Redskins +10.5 v. Bills||9-24||Loss||-102||42 h 39 m||Show|
Preparation to change over at the key position of quarterback is never an easy change. For the Washington Redskins they’ve dealt with a plethora of injuries and off/on field issues to suffer to a 1-7 record. They’ll face a Bills team that’s been dominant at home and coming off their worst loss of the season. While Haskins has not shown promise yet this should be a good spot for safe short throws that aided the Eagles last week. Grab Washington.
|11-03-19||Bears +5 v. Eagles||14-22||Loss||-118||42 h 38 m||Show|
The Bears offense does not seem to have any life to it. On top of it they now have uncertainty with their kicking game. Defensively they’ve shown to be a bit worn down and will face an Eagles team returning home after three weeks on the road. Yet look for this team to find life to capture a bit of their road block from last season’s playoff loss to the Eagles. Grab the Bears.
|11-03-19||Colts v. Steelers +1||24-26||Win||100||42 h 38 m||Show|
The Indianapolis Colts have shown their versatility all season long in ways they can win. They toppled the Chiefs, Texans, and Broncos with an array of differences other teams in the NFL have not shown. Pittsburgh’s challenges offensively are not going to go away. Where they can muster proficiency is with a defense that has shown the same trait as years past. They’re improving as the season goes on. Although Jacoby Brissett is use to being a starter this is his first year as the main guy. Expect the Steelers to pick up on game film tendencies and disrupt Brissett and the Colts offense. Grab Pittsburgh.
|10-27-19||Bucs v. Titans -2.5||23-27||Win||100||40 h 27 m||Show|
The switch to Ryan Tannehill for the Titans proved right for last week. Now they’ll face a Tampa Bay team fresh off a bye week. It’ll be interesting to see how aggressive the Titans call their offensive plays against a dynamic Bucs team. Even with the Dolphins Tannehill showed he can be a streaky winner. Look for that to continue as the defense makes enough plays to keep Tannehill comfortable.
|10-27-19||Giants +6.5 v. Lions||26-31||Win||100||40 h 26 m||Show|
After showing signs of life at 2-2 with Daniel Jones things have quickly changed. Three straight losses for the Giants have been caused by poor defense and Jones looking confused at times. They’ll face a Lions team that has looked great but lost in winnable games against the Chiefs, Packers, and Vikings. Expect the Giants to finally be in a game and cover Sunday.
|10-27-19||Eagles +2 v. Bills||31-13||Win||100||40 h 26 m||Show|
Tough schedules are a by product of sports. The Philadelphia Eagles will embark on their third straight road game as they travel to face the Buffalo Bills. Thus far the defense has not been up for the challenge as the Eagles have given up 37 and 38 points the past two weeks. Facing the red-hot Bills is going to be a challenge but look for the Eagles to be up for the challenge. Grab Philadelphia.
|10-21-19||Patriots v. Jets +10||33-0||Loss||-110||70 h 59 m||Show|
Can the Jets build off their outright win over the Dallas Cowboys? They’ll face a New England team that has been unstoppable ATS. They’ve covered every way imaginable and have extra rest from their week six Thursday win. With the Jets offense a bit more comfortable look for the Jets to have enough answers to sneak within this steep MNF spread. Grab the Jets.
|10-20-19||Saints v. Bears -3.5||36-25||Loss||-110||42 h 9 m||Show|
The Bears hope to shake the offensive and defensive rust exhibited in their overseas game against the Raiders. The shaky performance does cast doubt offensively with Mitch Trubisky set to return. They’ll face a stout Saints defense that’s helped boost Teddy Bridgewater to a 4-0 record. Yet expect both teams offensive limitations to bode to the advantage of the Bears. Grab Chicago.
|10-20-19||Vikings -1 v. Lions||42-30||Win||100||39 h 43 m||Show|
The NFC North has been hard to figure out because of how stout the division is. Minnesota has answered most questions except inside their division. Against the Packers and Bears their offense was hindered based on Kirk Cousins play. Traveling on the road may trigger some of Cousins problems. Yet this is a sound team that has overcome internal adversity to focus on the season at hand. Look for their team confidence to shine once again. Grab Minnesota.
|10-14-19||Lions +4.5 v. Packers||22-23||Win||100||54 h 22 m||Show|
The Green Bay Packers showed last week they can override injuries as long as Aaron Rodgers is at quarterback. The Packers veteran tore apart the Cowboys with key throws and strong running from Aaron Jones. With divisional success against the Vikings and Bears look for that to change over with the Lions. Grab Detroit as the small road underdog.
|10-13-19||Cowboys -7 v. Jets||22-24||Loss||-101||27 h 32 m||Show|
The Dallas Cowboys have not been sharp ATS aside from blowouts against the Redskins and Giants. Consecutive weeks as favorites against the Saints and Packers whittled with the offense not showcasing strong efforts. Against the Jets look for the Cowboys to get back to the basics on both sides of the football. Grab the Cowboys.
|10-13-19||49ers v. Rams -3||20-7||Loss||-110||26 h 11 m||Show|
The Rams have faltered in consecutive games with sloppy defense. Now they’ll face an undefeated 49ers team that has displayed exceptional proficiency. Although the Rams will likely be without Todd Gurley, expect the Rams to have enough offense to clear the 49ers defense. The masked issues of Jimmy Garrapollo will finally come to fruition. Grab LA.
|10-06-19||Colts +11 v. Chiefs||19-13||Win||100||49 h 35 m||Show|
The Kansas City Chiefs continue to see a high rise on their number ATS each week. With the Colts surrendering a loss against the Raiders many red flags were raised. Still early in the season Jacoby Brissett is going to have to burden immense pressure to keep them in Sunday’s contest. Look for him to be up for the challenge and the Colts to be the latest to get the cover against the Chiefs.
|10-06-19||Packers +3.5 v. Cowboys||34-24||Win||100||45 h 40 m||Show|
Probably the biggest game Sunday will be played in Dallas. Green Bay comes in banged up with their biggest weapon out in wide receiver DaVante Adams. Targets for the Packers receivers will now go to a cast of former third and fourth wide receivers. Woes offensively for Green Bay have featured sporadic play. That combined with the Packers poor run defense leaves Sunday’s matchup in doubt. Still the Cowboys are prone to leaving teams in games. Look for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense to have just enough surge to cover this spread.
|10-06-19||Bucs v. Saints -3||24-31||Win||100||41 h 14 m||Show|
The Saints have changed over their offensive game plan to fit their strengths minus Drew Brees. The change over has featured short throws and opportunistic defense. What will give Sunday as the Saints face one of the top offenses in the league in Tampa Bay? Tampa put on a big display of points against the Rams and has been in every one of their games win or loss. Yet look for the Saints to pull through with a strong fourth quarter.
|10-06-19||Falcons +4 v. Texans||32-53||Loss||-104||41 h 14 m||Show|
The Atlanta Falcons had one of the biggest let downs last week a home loss to the Titans. The offense was inept and the defense was torn apart by a formerly struggling Marcus Mariotta. Now they’ll travel on the road to face a Texans team that’s been strong defensively and has weapons galore on offense. Look for the Falcons to rise to the occasion on this one and get the cover.
|09-29-19||Cowboys -2.5 v. Saints||10-12||Loss||-110||50 h 55 m||Show|
The Dallas Cowboys have torn apart the Giants, Redskins, and Dolphins. Their strength of schedule will take a big rise Sunday night as they face the New Orlean Saints. Teddy Bridgewater and the Saints defense were strong in their road win over the Seahawks. Factoring the Saints home edge and prime time spot should put the Cowboys in a tough spot. But look for the focus of this Cowboys team to remain sharp. Grab Dallas.
|09-29-19||Vikings v. Bears -1.5||6-16||Win||100||46 h 1 m||Show|
The Bears are now 2-1 but many are basing that on the quality of their opponents. They barely escaped Denver and clearly won a sloppy performance against the Redkins on Monday Night. Stepping up against a higher caliber opponent in the Vikings will be a tough challenge. Defensively the Vikings have a solid script on Mitch Trubisky based on their past meetings. With Dalvin Cook running wild this could be a pace game that the Vikings dictate. In the end though look for the Bears to convert their red zone opportunities into touchdowns and prevail ATS.
|09-29-19||Bucs +10 v. Rams||55-40||Win||100||46 h 43 m||Show|
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have shown that they’re still exhibitioning some of the characteristics under their old regime. Two home losses were both led by execution failures against the 49ers and Giants. Now they’ll travel to California to face one of the best teams in football the past two seasons in the LA Rams. Issues may continue arise for the Bucs offense but look for their defense to show up and override last week’s meltdown against the Giants. Grab Tampa Bay.
|09-29-19||Seahawks v. Cardinals +6||27-10||Loss||-115||46 h 41 m||Show|
The Arizona Cardinals are putting a big burden on rookie quarterback Kyler Murray. While he may have the eye-popping stats the on field results have been lackluster. Yet look for this week to be a competitive game for the Cardinals. Seattle has been prone to playing down to a team home or away. Grab Arizona to put in a quality effort and cover the home points here.
|09-23-19||Bears -3.5 v. Redskins||31-15||Win||100||70 h 39 m||Show|
The Bears are fortunate to not be 0-2. Thanks to a miraculous long range field goal week two to defeat Denver they are 1-1. That does not provide relief for an offense that has looked MIA for the first two weeks of the season. Yet, Monday expect things to open up for the run game and eventually Mitch Trubisky. Washington is vulnerable on both sides of the football and will give the Bears opportunities for short fields. Grab Chicago.
|09-22-19||Steelers v. 49ers -6.5||20-24||Loss||-110||42 h 48 m||Show|
The San Francisco 49ers took care of business to jump out to a 2-0 record. They’ve done so with injuries at the tailback position and re-acclimating Jimmy Garrappollo to the offense. It’s working and right now they have a prime spot to unleash years of misery for the 49ers franchise. Pittsburgh will fight to avoid an 0-3 start but this is a 49ers team out the gate with high intensity offensively and defensively. Grab San Francisco.
|09-22-19||Giants +7 v. Bucs||32-31||Win||100||41 h 28 m||Show|
Making a quarterback change in the NFL to a rookie is usually done in an opportune spot. Facing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers improving defense under Todd Bowles may serve to be a tough challenge for Daniel Jones. With an extra three days off since their win over Carolina the defense should be extra prepared. This is a spot that I’ll side with the underdog as they find a way to lean on Saquon Barkley and get the tempo in place to keep Daniel Jones unnerved. Grab the Giants.
|09-15-19||Eagles v. Falcons||20-24||Loss||-125||26 h 45 m||Show|
The Philadelphia Eagles survived a scare in week one against the Washington Redskins. Now they’ll face an Atlanta Falcons team that has their backs up against the wall after a poor showing against the Minnesota Vikings. Offensively the Falcons look a few notches behind what you would expect with the veteran talent they have. Look for the Eagles to put on a showcase performance and the Falcons to start off 0-2.
|09-15-19||Chiefs v. Raiders +7.5||28-10||Loss||-125||22 h 30 m||Show|
The Chiefs potent offense did not skip a beat week one with an injured Tyreek Hill. They’ll travel to face an Oakland team that does not have the weapons to play at a face pace. Yet look for the Raiders to benefit from two home games to start the season and ride their rookie tailback Josh Jacobs as they did against Denver. Grab Oakland here.
|09-09-19||Texans v. Saints -6.5||28-30||Loss||-110||99 h 19 m||Show|
The prime time lights will feature two Monday night football games. One of focus will be the Saints. They’ll take on a Houston Texans team that has octane weapons at wide receiver and one of the streakiest quarterbacks in football in DeShaun Watson. The Saints will have to adjust without former tailback Mark Ingram and the fact that there are still concerns at the receiver position behind Mike Thomas. Expect the ageless veteran Drew Bree’s to deliver a typical Brees prime time performance and a Saints cover.
|09-08-19||Rams -2 v. Panthers||30-27||Win||100||69 h 13 m||Show|
Over the years the Carolina Panthers have developed a stout reputation with Cam Newton under center as a great home team. They’ve had a way of controlling pace and finishing off games in the fourth quarter. Meanwhile the Rams were one of the few teams to not play their starters one bit in pre-season. Expected rust and a long road trip have trimmed this spread down. Yet I expect to see Jared Goff prepared with his vast weapons at wide receiver to showcase the Goff that flashed to begin 2018.
|09-08-19||Titans +6 v. Browns||43-13||Win||100||69 h 12 m||Show|
The hype for the Cleveland Browns finally takes center stage Sunday. All the additions and coaching changes have shifted the mentality of on field expectations. They’ll face an AFC opponent in the Titans that have under achieved multiple years with Marcus Mariotta as quarterback. His pre-season performance put a cloud on if he’ll be able to maintain the starting job over Ryan Tannehill. Defensively they can stay in this game. While the Titans offense gets enough done to cover here.
|02-03-19||Patriots -2 v. Rams||13-3||Win||100||43 h 40 m||Show|
Noteworthy line movements in the NFL are typically correct. A three point line move from the initial Super Bowl offering to the Patriots is for proper reason. Towards the tail end of the season the Patriots utilize their defense to pick up their offense. Now in the playoffs the offense has met the defense to create a better team than last year’s run. Meanwhile the Rams injuries with Kupp/Gurley have diminished the offense. As great as the defense is they’re susceptible to both the run/pass. Look for the Patriots to squeeze out another Super Bowl title to the Belichick/Brady dynasty.
|01-20-19||Patriots v. Chiefs -3||37-31||Loss||-115||44 h 21 m||Show|
During Tom Brady’s Father Time era he has produced to a high degree especially without Peyton Manning in his way. Sunday is a different story though as the Patriots will not host the AFC Championship. That’s a big key as Tom Brady and the Patriots are just 1-4 on the road in the AFC since 2005. Look for Andy Reid and the Chiefs to have the offensive production to protect quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Grab the Chiefs.
|01-20-19||Rams +3.5 v. Saints||26-23||Win||100||41 h 46 m||Show|
The Saints turn around a week ago was brilliant from a defensive view. Yet the offense still has not been the same as it was through late November. The same can be said for the LA Rams who’ve limited Jared Goff’s passing and relied heavily on a ground attack. Look for more the Rams to get Goff going early and for the ground attack that the Eagles did not have to carry the Rams in the second half. Take the points here.
|01-13-19||Eagles +9.5 v. Saints||14-20||Win||100||44 h 42 m||Show|
The Philadelphia Eagles had the game that every big seed in March Madness has that does well. They survived a game they should have lost against the Chicago Bears. Now they’ll get new life with a prime matchup against a Saints team that blew them out 48-7. Since that game both teams have gone in different directions. While the Eagles still don’t have top notch personnel defensively they’ve grown enough to trust in this tough spot. Back the Eagles here.
|01-13-19||Chargers v. Patriots -4||28-41||Win||100||40 h 6 m||Show|
Throughout the final leg of the NFL season the discussion of the Patriots has been Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski’s decline. While the offense has not been stellar guess which unit has? Their defense. Aside from the crazy game against Miami the Patriots defense has surrendered 17 points or less since mid-November. That’s a big key against a Chargers team continuing an East coast road playoff round for the second consecutive week. Grab the value on the Patriots.
|12-30-18||Bears +5.5 v. Vikings||24-10||Win||100||18 h 19 m||Show|
Most of the games that have NFL playoff implications are slotted in the afternoon slots. With that being said the team needing to win to get in are the Minnesota Vikings. They’ll face a Chicago Bears team that likely knows off the bat that they aren’t going to hurdle the Rams for a bye week. That’s boosted the line too high on the Vikings side. Grab the value on the Bears.
|12-23-18||Chiefs -1 v. Seahawks||31-38||Loss||-125||46 h 14 m||Show|
The Seattle Seahawks continue to be small number underdogs or favorites at home. That’s a sign of their team not having much of an identity. During their five game win streak they found ways late to prevail to victory. Last week it finally bit them as they lost in overtime against San Francisco. Sometimes it takes a loss as such for the pendulum of confidence to settle in. Look for the Chiefs to be better prepared after a couple of rusty weeks minus Kareem Hunt.
|12-23-18||Bears v. 49ers +4.5||14-9||Loss||-105||42 h 58 m||Show|
San Francisco suddenly has has found an offensive package that works for quarterback Nick Mullens. They’ll face a Chicago Bears team that has won seven of eight games and has covered in all victories (10) but one game. That’s created value similar to the small road number the Bears were in a loss to the Giants. Grab San Francisco whom seems to be riding the same end of season wave they had a year ago with Jimmy Garrapollo.
|12-17-18||Saints -6.5 v. Panthers||12-9||Loss||-100||101 h 58 m||Show|
A five game losing streak has left the Carolina Panthers from a likely playoff team to a what-if season. A tough five game stretch featured four of five road games. Yet overall the Panthers have been a great home team at 5-1 which likely downgraded Monday’s spread. In a division rivalry game look for the value to be on a Saints team that is oblivious to any opponents dire situations. Grab New Orleans.
|12-16-18||Eagles +11.5 v. Rams||30-23||Win||100||77 h 4 m||Show|
Issues with the Eagles have been visible all season long. Lacking an impact runner due to injuries the offense has not looked the same. Now it appears Carson Went will sit out the final two games with the Eagles playoff chances slim. With the LA Rams coming off a loss one would expect the Rams to respond strongly. Yet look for the Eagles to show some pride. Nick Foles is similar to Ryan Fitzpatrick in the fact that he can produce in spot start opportunities. Grab the Eagles.
|12-09-18||Rams v. Bears +3||6-15||Win||100||49 h 2 m||Show|
This is a spot where a young team can grow within the season from a Chicago Bears stand point. In a similar spot the Bears stormed out to a sizable lead against the New England Patriots only to lose their composure in small areas (special teams, turnovers, etc). With Mitch Trubisky returning rust is expected but look for the Bears defense to continue being opportunistic. Grab Chicago.
|12-09-18||Lions -2.5 v. Cardinals||17-3||Win||100||45 h 8 m||Show|
On the year the Arizona Cardinals have been a solid team ATS. They’re one of the few teams that have been able to accomplish this with a poor record. After last week’s outright win against the Packers their value is sky high. With the Lions poor road record and tailspin season this is a tough spot to assess, especially with the Cardinals new found rushing attack. Yet look for the Lions to get some balance going for four quarters and defeat Arizona.
|12-09-18||Steelers v. Raiders +11||21-24||Win||100||45 h 7 m||Show|
The Pittsburgh Steelers suddenly find themselves with their backs against the walls. Two straight losses and three straight wins by the Ravens have made the AFC North very interesting. While the Raiders are still abysmal on both sides of the ball they’re starting to show signs of fight. The ability to play spoiler should keep this team in another game on a high spread. Grab the Raiders.
|12-03-18||Redskins v. Eagles -6||13-28||Win||100||7 h 43 m||Show|
At no point this season have the Eagles looked like prior Super Bowl champions. They’ve struggled to generate the same offense under the same scheme and defensively they’re not the same. They’ll take on a Washington Redskins team that has equal incentive to win with playoff hopes riding on tonight. Extra rest is tied into the Redskins MNF spread similar to their MNF matchup against the Saints (Off a bye week). Look for similar results as the Redskins have been a team ready to crumble for weeks. Grab Philadelphia.
|12-02-18||Chargers +3 v. Steelers||33-30||Win||100||26 h 55 m||Show|
Both the Chargers and Steelers have a common loss on their resume in losing to Denver. Aside from each loss both have ripped off big win streaks. In a potential playoff wild card matchup look for the Chargers to continue their upper level play on the road. Overall they’re 4-1 on the road and also have a home London win on their belt. Look for the Chargers to find plenty of offense on the Steelers defense similar to the way the KC Chiefs spread offense attacked. Grab LA
|12-02-18||49ers +11 v. Seahawks||16-43||Loss||-128||22 h 1 m||Show|
The injury ravaged San Francisco 49ers have not been effective ATS. That’s not the norm for a team getting points on a weekly basis. Yet this week’s matchup bodes advantageous for the 49ers. Value factors are available with the 49ers heavy road travel. They’re coming off a trip to Tampa Bay, Florida and now will go into the always difficult Seahawks Century Link Field. The Seahawks recent big wins are a bit misleading as they’ve been in difficult holes. Look for that to be a catalyst in a 49ers cover. Grab San Francisco
|12-02-18||Jets +8 v. Titans||22-26||Win||100||22 h 40 m||Show|
It’s hard to believe that the Jets were once a .500 team near the mid-season point at 3-3. Five straight losses have all been linked to ATS results as well. After last week’s near cover it showcased just how poor the Jets talent is offensively. Many would expect the Titans to storm over the Jets but the Titans have a look of a team that’s shaken. Tough losses on the year including a failed two point conversion against the Chargers and consecutive division losses are gut wrenching. Grab the value on the Jets.
|11-25-18||Packers v. Vikings -3||17-24||Win||100||25 h 6 m||Show|
The second matchup of the season between the Packers and Vikings will be on Sunday Night football. This is a do or die matchup for both the Vikings and Packers as each team has to make a run to get into the post-season. While many are use to Aaron Rodgers willing his team after an average start times are changing. Look for the Vikings depth and prime time devalue (2 SNF losses) to play into the hands of the small favorite. Grab Minnesota.
|11-25-18||Cardinals v. Chargers -13||10-45||Win||100||21 h 52 m||Show|
Off a poor loss to the Broncos signs are that the Chargers may revert to the pattern of seasons past. Yet the NFL is a new style game that bodes to the advantage of the Chargers ATS Sunday against the Cardinals. The safe Cardinals passing offense under new OC Byron Leftwich appears to be hitting a bit of a wall. Look for the Chargers to be aggressive defensively and for a big day for the Chargers.
|11-22-18||Falcons +13 v. Saints||17-31||Loss||-130||7 h 49 m||Show|
The Atlanta Falcons disappointing season has finally crossed over to value depreciation. On a short week they’ll take on a Saints team that has shown no mercy against countless opponents including last year’s Super Bowl champion in the Philadelphia Eagles. The dismantling of the Eagles on a high number forced the oddsmakers hands on a short week. Look for Atlanta to show signs of a divisional team and cover a high number.
|11-18-18||Vikings v. Bears -1||20-25||Win||100||24 h 17 m||Show|
Coming off a bye week the NFC North race can be swung a tad with Sunday Night football’s matchup between the Vikings and Bears. From a strength of schedule standpoint oddsmakers have not been fooled by the Bears. Their lone win against a quality opponent came in week two against the Seahawks, and their 3-straight wins came against the Jets, Bills, and Lions. Yet there is a moment to swing a division and give a new team momentum. The Vikings still have ATS value attraction based on last year’s strong run but look for the Bears to add a cushion to the division.
|11-18-18||Broncos +7 v. Chargers||23-22||Win||100||20 h 3 m||Show|
Growing momentum ATS has continued to pick up for the Chargers. Beyond the mid-season it can be hard for bettors to gravitate towards a team. Well the Chargers have rolled off six straight wins and covered five in a row. After four straight games on the road one would expect a team rolling to continue at home. Yet look for the Broncos and their inner divisional knowledge of the Chargers to keep this closer than oddsmakers think. Grab the Broncos.
|11-18-18||Raiders +6 v. Cardinals||23-21||Win||100||20 h 2 m||Show|
Since changing over and firing offensive coordinator Mike McCoy the Cardinals have looked much better. New OC Byron Leftwich has blended the offense for proper play calls to aide rookie Josh Rosen. A comeback win over San Francisco and a tough loss to the KC Chiefs showcased that the Cardinals are playing harder. That can’t be said for the Oakland Raiders whom have looked poor in every possible phase. Yet this is a spot where the Raiders personnel is not over whelmed talent-wise. Grab the value on Oakland.
|11-11-18||Cowboys +8.5 v. Eagles||27-20||Win||100||48 h 2 m||Show|
The Dallas Cowboys hit a team low point losing to the Tennessee Titans off their bye week. A defense that had been strong most of the year failed to get off the field and the offense continued its woes. They’ll face an Eagles team that for the third time this season will have extra days of preparation (2 Thursday games/Bye Week). That’s a factor into this spread as well as the Cowboys abysmal 0-4 record. Grab the Cowboys.
|11-11-18||Dolphins v. Packers -10||12-31||Win||100||44 h 5 m||Show|
The Packers did not get any scheduling benefits with their criss cross consecutive games against the Patriots and Rams. They’ll face a Dolphins team that has a bit of confidence at 5-4 with a sound home performance win over the Jets. This is where the early season high lines of the Packers finally sways to their advantage. Even off their high mileage consecutive road games expect the Packers defense to hunker down and limit a Dolphins offense that’s struggled on the road. Grab Green Bay.
|11-05-18||Titans +6 v. Cowboys||28-14||Win||100||93 h 44 m||Show|
The Dallas Cowboys showed enough before their bye week to believe they’re a team turning the corner. An unfortunate loss to Washington happens in inner divisional play. As poor as the Titans have been offensively this season one can expect it to be difficult to score against the Dallas defense. Yet this Titans team is also under rated defensively and should be able to gut out a tough road performance. Grab the underdog Titans.
|11-04-18||Rams v. Saints +2||35-45||Win||100||65 h 53 m||Show|
There are certain teams that have a look mid-season that may be their peak form. The New Orleans Saints are at that point. Defensively they’ve sharped up from last year’s issues against the Rams and their playoff exit against the Vikings. The undefeated Rams will be able to throw different defensive looks to keep the Saints offense at bay. Yet it’s the defensive improvements that give the Saints the edge. Grab the Saints to give the Rams their first loss of the season.
|11-04-18||Texans v. Broncos||19-17||Loss||-117||65 h 33 m||Show|
Nothing has been pretty with the Denver Broncos offensively this season aside from Philip Lindsay. At this juncture don’t be surprised to see Denver rotate their offensive mindset to what was working in the second half against the Chiefs. More runs versus risky throws from quarterback Case Keenum. The Texans five straight wins coupled with extra rest from a Thursday victory pose as value for the home Broncos. Grab Denver.
|11-04-18||Chargers +1 v. Seahawks||25-17||Win||100||65 h 33 m||Show|
Sometimes teams can get a dose of their own medicine in a quick scenario. The Seahawks took advantage of their bye week to script out a great game plan offensively and defensively against the Lions. Now they’ll face a Chargers team that has ample time post bye week and has an under rated element as they’ve been masked by the Chiefs start. LA’s balance offensively and defensively is not mind blowing but they’ve found a way to thrive with Rivers controlling his turnovers. Grab the Chargers as oddsmakers placed high value on the Seahawks home strength that has featured just a two-point loss to the Rams.
|11-04-18||Lions +5 v. Vikings||9-24||Loss||-105||61 h 30 m||Show|
The Minnesota Vikings are a team that are showing a bit of weakness signs. At this time last year they were going upward with Case Keenum under center. One would expect the same in the signing of veteran Kirk Cousins but that has not been the case. Although the Lions performed woefully post against the Seahawks one has to give the Seahawks credit for a post bye week game plan. Grab the value here on the Lions.
|11-04-18||Falcons v. Redskins -1||38-14||Loss||-123||61 h 29 m||Show|
Certain teams have a lull ATS yearly hangover to the public and sharps. That team is the Atlanta Falcons. A near Super Bowl champ two years ago to a divisional round exit last year. With many of the same pieces on both sides of the ball things just have not been the same. Even coming off a bye week the value remains on the Redskins. This is a team that has found a way to win games late and is under valued at home. Grab the Redskins.
|11-04-18||Jets +3 v. Dolphins||6-13||Loss||-117||61 h 29 m||Show|
During a short week the Dolphins defense suffered mightily against the Texans potent offense. That should change this week against a Jets offense that did very little in a road spot last week against the Bears. Marking his fourth consecutive start for the Fish will be Brock Osweiler whom has looked comfortable under center at home. Miami’s early season road win at the Jets coupled with the Jets plethora of injuries poses as value on the Dolphins. Yet look for the Jets to shake off last week’s rust and attack a Miami defense that appears to be worsening as the season stretches on.
|11-01-18||Raiders v. 49ers +1||3-34||Win||100||2 h 35 m||Show|
Key line movement has occurred based on the San Francisco 49ers starting a third string quarterback with zero experience. Simplified analysis presents this as value on the Raiders as this game is of course being played in the Bay Area. Yet I believe this gives Kyle Shanahan a chance to open up his offense a bit more against a porous Raiders defense. Without film on Mullins this poses as an advantage to the 49ers on a buy down spread. Grab the 49ers.
|10-28-18||49ers -1 v. Cardinals||15-18||Loss||-105||42 h 47 m||Show|
Undoubtedly the value decline on the Arizona Cardinals is near an all time low. Yet it’s not as far down as it can go. Expected improvement is clear this week as they’ve stepped away from offensive coordinator Mike McCoy and have given the job to Byron Leftwich. They’re also facing a 49ers team that lost outright as four point favorites to Arizona earlier in the season. As banged up as the 49ers are, this should be a sloppy affair that is winnable for the 49ers late. Grab San Francisco.
|10-28-18||Jets +8 v. Bears||10-24||Loss||-105||38 h 21 m||Show|
The Bears offense at home this year has been a juggernaut. Explosive points against the Seahawks, Buccaneers, and last week against the Patriots. The Jets are not only banged up at wide receiver but they’re also hurting at the running back position. That’s going to put a high burden on the Jets rookie quarterback in Sam Darnold in a tough road environment. After faltering at home against the Vikings this seems like a poor spot for the Jets. Yet the Bears are beginning to have issues with turnovers and sloppy defense. Those aren’t issues that evaporate in one week. Look for the Jets to capitalize on improper market line movement.
|10-22-18||Giants v. Falcons -4||20-23||Loss||-103||71 h 49 m||Show|
There are few teams at 2-4 that have been discounted as poorly as the Falcons have. On the year they’ve shown nothing trustworthy to back them, yet neither have the struggling Giants. Atlanta’s injuries at tailback and at kicker drove this line down as well as the Giants coming off a Thursday game. With no changes being made with Eli Manning nothing is going to change on the field. Expect the Falcons to show some of their prior Super Bowl pedigree as they take advantage of the Giants.
|10-21-18||Bills v. Colts -7||5-37||Win||100||40 h 35 m||Show|
The Colts thus far this season have not been a trustworthy team ATS. From opening week melting down against Cincinnati to last week’s road debacle against the Jets. Yet this week will mark Andrew Luck’s seventh start since returning from injury. The offense has looked much improved and he should tone down his turnovers this week against Buffalo. Veteran quarterbacks getting starts sometimes are too over valued and that is the case here with Derek Anderson. Grab the Colts
|10-21-18||Browns +3.5 v. Bucs||23-26||Win||100||40 h 35 m||Show|
Cleveland travels on the road after a putrid home performance against the Chargers. Rebounding back from such a brutal loss is tough for a team down weapons at the wide receiver position and also one relying on a rookie quarterback. Adding fuel to the fire was the Browns recent trade of top back Carlos Hyde. Now another rookie steps into the fold in tailback Nick Chubb. That’s value for a Browns team that faces a Bucs team that always leaves the door open with self driven miscues. Grab the Browns.
|10-21-18||Patriots v. Bears +3||38-31||Loss||-110||40 h 34 m||Show|
The Bears are a team that arguably are one of the most improved teams from last season to this year. That makes it very hard to dictate their proper line value. Case in point a poor road line against both the Dolphins and Cardinals haunted bettors. At home though they’re a higher grade team that bookmakers have failed to catch up on. On their resume is a stout victory over the Seahawks and a blowout win over the Bucs. With the Patriots rolling this forced the hand on a bad line. Grab the Bears to keep within the number.
|10-18-18||Broncos -1 v. Cardinals||45-10||Win||100||22 h 21 m||Show|
Several key factors make the Broncos a solid Thursday play. For one they’ve been horrid on the road this year at 0-2. Furthermore in three consecutive weeks they’ve been ripped apart on the ground game as the Chiefs, Jets, and Rams have ran for near or over 200 yards each game. Yet look for Denver to be in better shape here as Arizona tries to protect their rookie quarterback in Josh Rosen. That should allow the defense to be more aggressive and give their team an added edge. Grab Denver.
|10-14-18||Chiefs v. Patriots -3.5||40-43||Loss||-109||1 h 56 m||Show|
Rarely do you see a 5-0 team an underdog especially with a decisive victory under their belt from last year. Folks haven’t forgot the way the Chiefs tore apart Tom Brady and company to start the season in 2017. Yet 365 days later look for better defense from the Patriots and for the Chiefs to come down to Earth a bit offensively. The only team to take advantage of the Chiefs defense was the Steelers in the second quarter of week two. This go around look for Brady and company to stay focused and to the game plan for four quarters.
|10-14-18||Rams v. Broncos +7||23-20||Win||100||40 h 50 m||Show|
The Denver Broncos are coming off one of the worst road defeats of the season last week against the Jets. Flat offensively and no answer for the Jets ground attack are recipes for disaster against the potent Rams. In the last two weeks the Broncos have surrendered over 350 yards on the ground. Yet there is value on them similar to when they faced the undefeated Chiefs at home. The Rams defense has not been the same. Expect the Broncos to ride their tailbacks and fortune on defense to ride this cover out.
|10-14-18||Chargers +1 v. Browns||38-14||Win||100||37 h 45 m||Show|
Each and every week the Browns have done what bettors love. Cover. They have covered every game this season with one push against the Raiders. Baker Mayfield and the rush attack has been the story along with a defense that is improving. A third home game in four weeks should pose as a momentum builder for the Browns. Instead one has to look at their miscues and believe that they’ll finally come out against them. Grab the road Chargers here.
|10-14-18||Bears v. Dolphins +3.5||28-31||Win||100||37 h 45 m||Show|
The Miami Dolphins were a fourth quarter away from being 4-1. Instead they unraveled offensively and let the Bengals over run them. Now they’ll face a Chicago Bears team that had the biggest blowout this season with a 48-10 victory over the Buccaneers. Yet there is value to be had with the Dolphins based on the Bears bye week. Look for Ryan Tannehill’s health and return from a year off to finally start to pay dividends. Grab the fish.
|10-14-18||Panthers v. Redskins +1||17-23||Win||100||37 h 44 m||Show|
The Redskins are as banged up as any team possibly could be that has already utilized a bye week. Several starters will be missing on defense and offense which showcased a poor effort as a whole on Monday Night football. Still the matchup against the Panthers is favorable as Carolina is known to play to the level of their competition. Look for Alex Smith and company to get back to over .500.
|10-07-18||Cowboys v. Texans -3||16-19||Push||0||48 h 33 m||Show|
The 1-3 Houston Texans will face the in-state Dallas Cowboys in prime time. While Dallas won’t have to travel far they’ll face a Houston Texans team that’s showing upward signs. Offensively DeShaun Watson appears to be getting back into form from last years season ending injury. Defensively look for the Texans to be ready to limit a Dallas Cowboys team that’s struggled at sustaining offense for four quarters.
|10-07-18||Rams -7 v. Seahawks||33-31||Loss||-115||44 h 39 m||Show|
Year after year we’ve seen oddsmakers chase a team’s number and fall short. That appears to be the case for the LA Rams whose road and home number just has not been strong enough. They’ll take on a Seahawks team that on paper is 2-2. A play here or a play there and they could easily be 4-0 with losses against the Broncos-Bears. Yet one could also say their two wins against the Cowboys-Cardinals were fortunate. While the Seahawks haven’t shown any signs of who they are the Rams have. They’re not going to sputter and allow the Seahawks home crowd to get into this. Grab the Rams.
|10-07-18||Broncos v. Jets||16-34||Win||100||40 h 14 m||Show|
The Jets will be without their defensive coordinator who is ill and have sputtered three straight weeks. Consecutive weeks as a public-sharp side against the Dolphins-Browns did not hit pay dirt. Extended rest to face the Jaguars proved to not pay dividends. Back home they should bode better against a Denver Broncos team that did not play well in their lone road game against the Ravens. Grab the Jets as Sam Darnold makes enough plays with his arm to boost the Jets.
|09-30-18||Saints v. Giants +3.5||33-18||Loss||-110||69 h 58 m||Show|
The Giants have notoriously been a poor team at home ATS. They’ll face a Saints team that has been nearly unstoppable offensively for three weeks. They lit up the Buccaneers in a week one loss, had yards galore against the Browns, and hardly punted against the Falcons. Many may expect a Giants team returning from consecutive road games in Texas to experience rust. Yet, look for enough spark plays from the Giants and for the first outdoor game of the season to affect the Saints. Grab the Giants.
|09-30-18||Browns +3 v. Raiders||42-45||Push||0||69 h 37 m||Show|
Desperation for NFL teams usually translates ATS. Considering the Raiders have been in winnable games each and every week, this would seem like a perfect spot to back them. Yet they’re facing a Cleveland Browns team that was very similar to them a year ago. In games each and every week but falling short. After a taste of a victory against the Jets look for the Browns to continue an unforeseen period ATS success. Grab Cleveland.
|09-30-18||Dolphins +7 v. Patriots||7-38||Loss||-119||66 h 32 m||Show|
Miami has been one of the sloppiest weekly winners in the NFL. None of their wins have been stellar and two were at home against the Titans/Raiders. From an Xs and Os stand point the Patriots have been able to shred the Dolphins for years. It could happen Sunday as well but oddsmakers aren’t going to give out free money here. Look for the Dolphins to finish inside the number here even if down double digits most of the game.
|09-23-18||Bears v. Cardinals +7||16-14||Win||100||95 h 28 m||Show|
Through two games the Arizona Cardinals have been outclassed on their home field by the Redskins and LA Rams. Aside from the Buffalo Bills they’re the only team in football that has not been in the same stratosphere as the oddsmaker’s line. The Bears defense attacked and sacked Russ Wilson several times and put the game away with a pick six. Yet, the Cardinals are one of those teams that needed some time outside of the pre-season to gel in the regular season. Expect a better performance and a home cover on a steep line.
|09-23-18||Broncos v. Ravens -5||14-27||Win||100||92 h 3 m||Show|
Denver has shown just enough balance offensively and defensively to offset miscues. Victories over the Seahawks and Raiders came with stellar execution in both fourth quarters. The jury is still out on the Ravens whom seem to be lacking an identity offensively and were torched defensively week two by the Bengals. Yet look for the Ravens defense to keep the carry over issues of turnovers by Case Keenum going. Grab the Ravens minus the points.
|09-23-18||Saints v. Falcons -3||43-37||Loss||-105||92 h 3 m||Show|
The New Orleans Saints escaped week two with a victory over the Cleveland Browns. Now they’ll travel to face their first division opponent of the year in the Atlanta Falcons. Strength of schedule has a large factor in this slim point spread by oddsmakers. Atlanta has faced the defending champion and a tough Carolina Panthers team while the Saints have faced Tampa Bay-Cleveland. Yet look for the Saints to continue to get in their own way, grab the Falcons here.
|09-17-18||Seahawks v. Bears -3||17-24||Win||100||73 h 27 m||Show|
When a team that had such a strong run such as the Seahawks struggles, it takes time for oddsmakers to adjust. Market value is not known for the Seahawks and is growing for the Bears. That represents an edge on the Bears side for Monday. Anticipate the three quarters of strong play presented by the Bears week one to carry over at home Monday. Grab Chicago.
|09-16-18||Giants +3 v. Cowboys||13-20||Loss||-102||50 h 33 m||Show|
Yearly the Giants and Cowboys are showcased on Sunday night football and we get it again for week two. New York as a whole has been awful ATS but has managed to stay in games. Dallas on the other hand is in a pressure situation to produce. Falling 0-2 is not where you would expect a team that looked so dynamic just two years ago. Yet, the Giants have upgraded at positions and should get enough from Eli to cover this small number. Grab the Giants.
|09-16-18||Chiefs +5 v. Steelers||42-37||Win||100||42 h 13 m||Show|
Finding value early in the NFL season is tricky. Yet for the Chiefs it lies in multiple areas. First, they were destroyed last year in Sunday Night football by the Pittsburgh Steelers. Second, they’re one of the few teams in football that are starting off with two road games. Last, they’re facing a Pittsburgh team that needs to erase the memory of last week’s tie. Holdouts don’t get discussed ATS but look for Le’Veon Bell’s absence to continue to affect them against the number.
|09-09-18||Seahawks v. Broncos -2.5||24-27||Win||100||43 h 11 m||Show|
The Seattle Seahawks made a plethora of moves to get their roster younger. Yet they still have key veterans in Earl Thomas, Russ Wilson, and Doug Baldwin. Denver on the other hand has been a revolving circle for starting quarterbacks and will have Case Keenum under center. Their decision to start Royce Freeman a third round rookie is one of the more under valued ATS movers for Sunday. His ability to hit the hole will aide Keenum in hitting the veteran Broncos receivers. Grab Denver.
|09-09-18||Bengals v. Colts -1||34-23||Loss||-128||40 h 47 m||Show|
Andrew Luck’s nearly year and a half away from football is one that should be proceeded with caution. No doubt the Colts will simplify the offense in order to protect their quarterback from taking unnecessary hits. On the flip side the Bengals have the assets and weapons to attack a Colts defense that has always been vulnerable. Yet, this is where the draw back of retaining Marvin Lewis will lurk. Grab the Colts to capitalize on the 50/50 plays and come out over the number.
|09-09-18||Bills +8 v. Ravens||3-47||Loss||-110||40 h 46 m||Show|
Whenever you see a plethora of people pour on a teams poor roster and future prospects it’s usually a value indicator. Nearly everyone and their mom has been down on the Bills season win total as their quarterback situation looks like the worst in football. Yet sometimes moving forward with youth at the position upgrades the roster as a whole. On the other side Baltimore has been an ATS favorite of sharps-public since their commonality Super Bowl run in 2012. Roster upgrades were done in the off-season and the familiarity of Joe Flacco-Harbaugh still exists. Yet look for the Bills to hang around in this one with enough offensive plays to cover. Grab Buffalo.
|01-07-18||Panthers v. Saints -6.5||26-31||Loss||-112||42 h 13 m||Show|
It’s rare to see two teams at 11-5 in the wild card round. Yet, a deep NFC has caused an NFC South matchup. This of course will be the third meeting between the teams with the Saints dominating both over the Panthers. While the Saints went just 3-3 to finish out the season, they have the edge on both sides of the football to handle the Panthers one more time. This line likely would be higher if it were not for the Panthers strong regular season and Super Bowl appearance just two seasons ago. The notion of a team having difficulty beating a team three times won’t be the case here. Grab the Saints.
|12-31-17||Bills v. Dolphins +3||22-16||Loss||-120||40 h 7 m||Show|
Two teams with division familiarity will square off in the AFC East in the Bills and Dolphins. Buffalo has motivation to finish above .500. Their quarterback in Tyrod Taylor also will be showcasing his skillset as it doesn’t appear that he will remain a Bill. With these two teams just meeting two weeks ago value may appear to be on Buffalo. Yet grab the value on the Dolphins who have a young roster improving heading into 2018.
|12-24-17||Browns v. Bears -6.5||3-20||Win||100||44 h 39 m||Show|
Examining both the Bears and Browns will offer many comparisons. Both have been in numerous games only to fall apart late. Attraction for the Browns to not go winless is something bettors continue to chase. Yet there has been no balance of play calls offensively which has only become worse with Josh Gordon’s return. This should play into the Bears hands which has been a top five team at sticking to their game plans under John Fox. Look for their discipline and hunger to get a strong win to payoff ATS.
|12-24-17||Broncos +3.5 v. Redskins||11-27||Loss||-110||44 h 38 m||Show|
Under the radar entering the season oddsmakers placed high priority of a slanted home number against the Washington Redskins. After all they had been a juggernaut ATS in prior seasons. That changed for the first two and a half months of this season. That caused a dip in market value by oddsmakers which the Redskins have capitalized on in consecutive home covers. Denver is a team in the same boat. A downgraded offense and defense resulted in nine eight straight ATS losses. Bypass the pendulum shift of oddsmakers and the Broncos holiday road travels. They’ll cover the number for the third straight week.
|12-23-17||Vikings -8 v. Packers||16-0||Win||100||27 h 9 m||Show|
The decision to shut down Aaron Rodgers was a proper decision by Green Bay management . Uplifting play witnessed in prior weeks by the wide receivers and running backs came as a product of great matchups. Sunday is not one as Minnesota has been a strong force for several seasons against Green Bay. Earlier this season against the Vikings Brett Hundley was confused to the point that Mike McCarthy over simplified the play calls. Look for the Vikings to capitalize again defensively and sure up their offense before the playoffs.
|12-17-17||Rams +2.5 v. Seahawks||42-7||Win||100||42 h 30 m||Show|
Both the Rams and Seahawks are coming off tough losses in week fourteen. Returning home the Seahawks will hope to build on the newfound offense that Russ Wilson has been the catalyst as recently. For the Rams they hope to avoid being swept by a Seahawks team that limited them to just ten points. Curiously in the opening line for this matchup oddsmakers avoided the Seahawks home field advantage over the years. Look for the Rams to take advantage of implementing a better offensive blueprint against a Seahawks team that has masked injuries for over a month.
|12-17-17||Dolphins v. Bills -3||16-24||Win||100||38 h 25 m||Show|
From an offensive standpoint the Buffalo Bills have been as poor as any team over the last month. At their worst the Bills were blown out by an average of 26 points weeks eight through eleven. Yet, even with below average offense the Bills have managed to win two of their last three games. With the Dolphins coming off their biggest win of the season against the Patriots look for the Bills home advantage (5-2) to pay dividends.
|12-16-17||Bears v. Lions -4.5||10-20||Win||100||18 h 54 m||Show|
A month ago the Lions found themselves down 17-7 before mounting a comeback win over the Bears. It was a game that the Bears let get away as they outplayed the Lions. Last week the Bears ended a five game skid with a dominating road win over the Bengals. Although the Lions have been wildly inconsistent the Bears new look offense of a week ago will not carry over in the division. Grab the Lions.
|12-10-17||Cowboys v. Giants +4||30-10||Loss||-110||37 h 4 m||Show|
One of the poorer lines this season was Dallas as a slight home favorite against the Giants. That’s a factor Sunday along with the Giants story line. For the second time in four weeks they traveled to California. Heavy miles returning home amidst their coach getting fired is distracting. Yet, it’s the Cowboys that have the pressure on them. At 6-6 they need to keep winning to stay in the playoff hunt. Look for a spirited effort from the Giants and a Sunday cover.
