|02-03-19||Patriots v. Rams UNDER 57.5||13-3||Win||100||224 h 25 m||Show|
PATRIOTS VS RAMS
Both teams have good offenses that can score and are pretty equal defensively. The total for this game is the highest in 19 of their last 20 games combined. In the Pats last 7 regular season games the total went under and in 3 of the last 4 regular season Ram games. The under is 8-3 in the Pat's last 11 games overall and 14-6 in their last 20 on grass. With so much on the line and conservative play calling a big probability, I will gladly go under this big number.

PATRIOTS @ CHIEFS
New England won their last 3 games but their 5th ranked offense that scores over 37 points a game, has been held below that in 6 of their last 10 games. They lost 3 of their last 4 road games and were held to 10 points in 2 of the losses. Brady has not passed for 300 yards in 7 of his last 11 games while throwing 2 TD's or less in 9 of his last 12 games and 1 TD or less in 8 of those. Of the Patriots last 7 wins 4 were against Buffalo and the Jets who they beat twice each while their last 4 wins were all at home. The Chiefs are led by QB Mahomes who is ranked 1st in TD passes with 50 and 2nd in yards with over 5000. Over his last 12 games he has thrown 36 TD's and just 10 picks. They got 2 of their last 3 losses against the Rams and Chargers who are 2 of the best teams in the league while their record at home is 8-1. Although they allow over 400 yards a game, they average just 26.3 points a game allowed and have yet to allow 30 at home in KC. Their defense has allowed 17 points or less in 7 of their last 10 games and 17 or less in 4 of their last 5 home games.

RAMS @ SAINTS
LA has won 6 of their last 8 games scoring at least 30 points in each win while holding opponents to 22 points of less in 4 of their lat 6 and 16 points or less in 3 of those. They were ranked 2nd in overall offense during the regular season ranking 5th in passing yards a game and 3rd in rushing yards. QB Goff has passed for at least 295 yards in 5 of his last 9 games and thrown 20 TD's against 7 picks with 4 of the picks in justv1 game. Defensively they are 9th against the pass allowing just 227 yards a game while holding teams to less that 21 points a game while allowing just 105 yards on the ground. The Saints have won 4 of their last 5 games but scored at least 30 points in just1 of their last 6 games. They average over 31 points a game but most of those points came in the first 10 games of the year as they scored at least 40 points in 6 of those first 10 games. Brees has thrown just 3 TD's over his last 4 games while not passing for 300 yards in 7 of his last 10 games. They are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games and 1-4 ATS in their last 4 against the NFC.

EAGLES @ SAINTS
Philadelphia has won 6 of their last 7 games and their last 4 in a row since Foles took over at QB. But their defense has also done their share as they held 5 of their last 7 opponents to 23 points or less including a 30-23 win over the Rams. The totals have gone under in 4 of the Eagles last 6 road games and 1 of the overs was in OT. The Saints have 1 of the top QB's in the league with Brees but he has thrown for over 300 yards in just 2 of his last 7 games and the Saints have been held below their season scoring average in 4 of their last 5 games and to 14 points or less in 3 of those. The under is 5-2 in their last 7 games and in 3 of their last 4 meetings with Philadelphia. Considering the importance of the game expect conservative play from both teams which should keep the scoring at a minimum.

COWBOYS @ RAMS
Dallas has won 8 of their last 9 games including their Wild Card win over Seattle. They have the 7th ranked overall defense in the NFL and they allowed 23 points or less in 8 of those last 9 games. They are good at stopping the run as they are ranked 5th allowing just 94 yards a game while allowing just 329 total yards a game. They have won 3 of their last 4 road games while the offense is better at running the ball averaging over 122 yards a game which should help against a Ram defense that allows over 122 yards and are last in the NFL allowing teams to rush for 5.1 yards per attempt. The Rams won 5 of their last 7 games but allowed teams to score over 30 points in 5 of their last 8 games while being outrushed in 5 of their last 8 as well. They average 32 points a game but were held below that in 4 of their last 5 games. In 7 of their last wins they won by 5 points or less in 3 of them and the games they won by double digits were against 4 of the worst offenses in the league beating Detroit, Arizona and San Francisco twice as all of those wins were against those teams that average 21 points or less and losing by 7 or more in their last 3 losses. It won't be easy for them to get a lot going against a fired up Dallas team that has played well.

COLTS @ CHIEFS
Indy has won 9 of their last 10 games including 2 post season road games. Not to take away from that accomplishment but 6 of those wins were against teams in the bottom 10 of the NFL in scoring. All 6 average 21 points or less offensively while 4 of their wins were by 10 points total. They have a good offense that averages 27 points a game but have been held to 27 points or less in 5 of their last 7 wins. KC is 12-4 including a 7-1 home record. They are the #1 scoring team in the league led by Mahomes who is 2nd in passing yards and 1st with 50 TD passes. Their defense is near the bottom of the league as they allow over 400 yards a game and over 26 points but even though they allowed over 30 points in 5 games, all 5 were on the road and at home never allowed a team to score 30 points. In 5 of their 7 home wins they held teams to 24 points or less. This is by far the best offense that the Colts will have to face and the 3rd straight road game they have to play. KC had last week off and and is more rested. This is a tough game for the Colts to keep up their winning ways.

|01-06-19||Eagles +6 v. Bears||16-15||Win||100||103 h 35 m||Show|
EAGLES @ BEARS
Philadelphia won 5 of their last 6 games including their last 2 road games to get to the Wildcard game. That included a 30-23 win over the Rams on the road and LA was tied for the best record in the NFC with the Saints at 13-3. That was the Rams only loss at home all year while the Eagles went 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games. They were the 7th best passing team in the league and Foles who took over for Wentz, guided them to 3 straight wins to finish out the season as he completed at least 71 % of his passes while throwing 6TD's and just 2 picks in his last 2 games. They were more of a bend don't break defensively as they allowed less than 22 points and less than 100 yards rushing a game. Chicago played great defense allowing less than 300 yards and only 18 points a game as they won 9 of their last 10 games including their last 5 home games. They were touch and go offensively being ranked 21st and Trubisky passed for over 250 yards just once in his last 8 game while throwing just 5 TD's and 5 picks in his last 5 games and no more than 1 TD in 5 of his last 7. This might be a closer game than you would think as the Eagles were 3-0 SU/ATS in their last 3 meetings.
|01-06-19||Chargers +2.5 v. Ravens||23-17||Win||100||124 h 36 m||Show|
CHARGERS @ RAVENS
The Chargers finished the season winning 8 of their last 10 games including 5 straight road wins where they were 7-1 as well as being tied for the best record in the AFC. Led by Rivers with over 4300 passing yards and 32 TD passes, they averaged over 26 points a game while defensively they were ranked 9th allowing less than 21 points a game. They held 6 of the last 8 opponents they beat to 21 points or less. Baltimore led the league defensively allowing less than 300 yrds and 18 points a game. Offensively they averaged 24 points a game but were held to 24 points or less in 7 of their last 10 games while Jackson who took over at QB had just 1 game he passed for more than 200 yards in his 8 starts since replacing Flacco. Rivers has the experience and that is what you look for in the playoffs not to mention having one of his best seasons as a pro.

BROWNS @ RAVENS
Cleveland visits Baltimore who can wrap up their division with a win over the Browns. Clevelnd has won 3 straight games but is just 2-5 on the road and 7-7 overall. Mayfield has had a great rookie year but their defense is ranked 29th allowing over 388 yards and over 24 points a game but their offense struggles at time scoring just over 22 points a game. Baltimore has won 5 of their last 6 games and their #1 ranked defense allowed just 21 points or less in the wins. Their defense leads the league in points allowed, yards allowed and rushing defense. They need this game and Cleveland will have a tough time with the Raven defense.
|12-30-18||Falcons +1.5 v. Bucs||34-32||Win||100||96 h 18 m||Show|
FALCONS @ BUCS
Atlanta has had a disappointing year including a 5 game losing streak.But they have won their last 2 games while QB Ryan who is ranked 3rd in the NFL has thrown for over 4500 yards and 33 TD's against just 6 picks. They are ranked 8th offensively and average 382 yards and over 25 points a game. They preety much live and die on the pass and now face the Bucs who rank 24th allowing over 250 yards a game in the air. The Bucs also allow over 124 yards on the ground and that should open up the air for Ryan to have a big day. Although the Falcon defense has holes, the Bucs offense has stalled and they have been held to 20 points or less in their current 3 game losing streak.

VIKINGS @ LIONS
Minnesota is ranked 15th overall in yards per game which includes their running game that averages 95 a game and is ranked 29th. They have been held to 24 points or less in 6 of their last 7 games and held their opponents to 21 points or less in 7 of their last 10. They allow 22 points a game which ranks them 12th and the total has gone under in 5 of their last 7 games. Detroit hasn't scored more than 20 points in 7 of their last 8 games as their offense is ranked 24th overall and 25th as they score just 20 points a game. Their last 5 games have gone under the total and 7 of their last 8 overall. In 8 of the last 10 meetings between these 2 teams the total has gone under while under is 5-1 in Minnesota's last 6 games in December and 6-1 in Detroits last 7 games in December.

PACKERS @ JETS
This isn't the most highly anticpated game on the schedule Sunday, but I see value with the Packers to get a win here in New York. The Jets are bad, real bad. They have lost seven of their last eight overall, and they haven't covered now in four straight home games. The last time they played the Packers at home, they were shutout. The Packers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS loss, and the road team is 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. This is familiar territory for Green Bay in recent seasons, but the Packers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games in Week 16.

REDSKINS @ TITANS
Nobody likes Washington in Saturday's game at Tennessee, and really ... what is there to like. An injury plagued team already eliminated from the playoffs with a third string quarterback under center? Well that's what they said last week too, and the Skins pulled off a shocking upset win over the Jags in Jacksonville. The Titans aren't exactly the kind of team that you want to bet on as a double digit favorite. They rank 27th in the NFL in scoring, averaging under 20 points per game. Washington has won outright in two of the last three head to head meetings, and all of those games were decided by three points or less. The underdog is 5-0 ATS in the last five head to head meetings between these teams.

SAINTS @ PANTHERS
New Orleans will be playing their 3rd straight road game and after having their 10 game winning streak broken with a 13-10 loss at Dallas 2 weeks ago, bounced back with a 28-14 win against Tampa last week. Although they won by 2 TD's, they had to score 17 4th quarter points to win the game. They were down 14-3 at the half and 14-11 after 3 quarters. Brees was held under 200 yards passing for the 2nd straight game. He had thrown at least 3 TD passes in 4 straight games but threw just 2 with 2 picks in his last 2 games. Carolina lost their 5th straight game last week and are now fighting for their lives for a playoff spot. Their downfall has been on the road where they are 1-6 as 4 of their last 5 losses were there. The Saints have clinched their division and Carolina is a desperate team playing at home where they are 5-1 and need a win to stay alive. New Orleans can afford to rest starters who may have minor injuries where the Panthers should be playing all out.

EAGLES @ RAMS
This looks like a get right game for the Rams and Todd Gurley. Yeah sure ... Nick Foles won the Super Bowl last year, but stepping in on a banged up team with a losing record is an entirely different situation. Foles hasn't been very impressive this year, throwing for 451 yards with a TD and an INT in two starts. The Rams have been good at home, and they are looking to go 7-0 here against the Eagles. The Eagles are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in December, and they are 1-5 ATS in their last six versus teams with a winning record.
|12-16-18||Patriots v. Steelers +3||10-17||Win||100||4 h 55 m||Show|
PATRIOTS @ STEELERS
New England had their chances last week in Miami with Brady throwing for over 350 yards and 3 TD passes but blew 3 Red Zone opportunities coming away with just 6 points in their 34-33 loss to Miami. They have lost 2 of their last 3 road games beating only the Jets while allowing 34 points in each loss. They are ranked 21st overall defensively and 25th as they allow 260 yards passing a game and that isn't good against the 2nd ranked passing game in the league. The Steelers average over 400 yards a game with 319 coming through the air as Big Ben has also thrown 28 TD passes. Defensively they haven't allowed more than 24 points in their last 9 games while 2 of their last 3 losses have been on the road. With Pittsburgh playing at home and fighting to hold on to their slim lead over the Ravens, taking points in this game seems a bargain.
|12-16-18||Lions v. Bills -134||13-14||Win||100||28 h 59 m||Show|
LIONS @ BILLS
Detroit's playoff hopes are hanging by a thread and even though they beat Arizona last week, totaled just 218 yards with Stafford throwing for a season low 101 yards. They scored 17 points but the defense was responsible for 7 with a pick 6 as their offense which is ranked 24th overall has scored 20 points or less in their last 4 games and 6 of their last 7 overall. Buffalo doesn't have a good offense to say the least but are a different team with Allen at QB. They are 2-2 in their last 4 games but have scored at least 23 points in 3 of their last 4 games which considering they average less than 16 points a game for the season, says a lot about Allen. He can hurt you passing and running and in his last 3 games has thrown for 597 yards and run for 335 which is the most ever by a QB over 3 games. Those were his first 3 games since he returned from injury and defensively are ranked 1st in total yards and 1st allowing just 185 passing yards a game. Buffalo has won 4 of the last 5 meetings with Detroit including their last 3 at home.
|12-16-18||Cowboys v. Colts -3||0-23||Win||100||24 h 42 m||Show|
COWBOYS @ COLTS
Dallas turned their season around with a 5 game winning streak although the last 3 were on their home field where they are 6-1. They have made this run mostly with help from the defense which hasn't allowed more than 23 points during their winning streak. Offensively they are ranked 20th overall averaging 350 yards and 21 points a game. QB Prescott passed for over 400 yards last week against the Eagles and it was his 1st game he passed for over 300 yards as he averages just 218 yards a game. The Colts are also playing well winning 6 of their last 7 games and are well balanced as they are ranked 10th overall on offense and defense. They have scored at least 27 points in 6 of their last 8 games while defensively haven't allowed more than 24 points in their last 4 games. The fact they are at home and have Luck who has thrown at least 3 TD passes in 8 of his last 10 games gives them an edge that will make it difficult for the Cowboys to win.

TEXANS @ JETS
The Jets will be a big home dog against the Texans Saturday, and I can't believe people want to back a road favorite here in a winter game in New York. While the Texans had won nine in a row, their winning streak came to an end at home versus the Colts last week. These teams have played three times since 2010, and all three games were decided by seven points or less. The underdog has covered in each of the last four meetings between the two teams, and Houston has only covered in two of the last seven meetings. I expect the Jets to hang around, at the very least keeping things close.

CHARGERS @ CHIEFS
The Chiefs beat the Chargers 38-28 in Week 1, but one could argue that LA has been the better team since. Kansas City has home field advantage here tonight, but they will be without Sammy Watkins, Kareem Hunt, and possibly Spencer Ware and Tyreek Hill. If you closely consider how much production that takes out of their offense, I can't see how you would justify laying points with the Chiefs. Watching this team struggle against Baltimore last week, the writing is on the wall. Tough times are on the way for this high flying Chiefs offense, and they could be on the wrong side of an upset tonight.

LIONS @ CARDINALS
Detroit has lost 5 of their last 6 games and 3 of their last 4 on the road. Their last 2 wins were against Miami and 3 weeks ago against a reeling Carolina team 20-19 at home. Their offense has scored 22 points or less in their last 6 games and they are ranked 25th overall averaging just 21 points a game. Stafford has thrown for less than 300 yards in his last 5 games with just 4 TD passes along with 5 picks and is questionable with a bad back. Arizona has won 3 games but 2 of them were in the last 5 as they beat Green Bay last week at home 20-17. They have held 4 of their last 5 opponents to 26 points or less in 4 of their last 5 games. They have 1 of the better pass defenses ranked 5th in the league and allowed 23 points or less in 4 of their last 5 home games.

FALCONS @ PACKERS
Atlanta has lost 4 straight games but in last week's loss held the Ravens to 159 passing yards without a TD pass and in their previous loss to the Saints held Brees to 162 yards but allowed him to throw 4 TD's of which 3 were 25 yards or less. They are ranked 5th in the league with 298 yards a game passing while averaging 25 points a game. Against the Cowboys in 1 of the losses they allowed Dallas to score 10 points in the final 2 minutes before losing 22-19. The Packers have a 3 game losing streak of their own and last week lost to the worst offense in the league as they were beaten 20-17 by Arizona. It was their 4th loss in the last 5 games and they were held to 17 points for the 3rd game in their last 4 losses. They have been outrushed in 6 of their last 7 games and outgained in total yards in 4 of their last 6. They just changed head coaches after last week's debacle and word is that Rodgers is causing some problems which has resulted in poor offensive performances.

SAINTS @ BUCS
The Saints had their 10 game winning streak snapped when they lost to Dallas 13-10 last week. Although they give up an average of 23 points a game they are ranked 30th against the pass allowing 279 yards a game along with 22 TD passes. Brees isn't having 1 of his better seasons as he has been inconsistent and has passed for less than 200 yards in ghis last 2 games and over 300 yards in only 5 of the 12 games the Saints have played. Of their 2 losses, 1 was to the Bucs in week 1 48-40. The Tampa offense is ranked 1st averaging 442 yards a game led by their passing also ranked first averaging 344 yards a game. They won their 2nd straight game foe only the 2nd time since they won their first 2 games of the year and Winston was the QB in both wins as he completed over 66% of his passes and threw 4 TD's without a pick in the 2 games. Since his return he has thrown 6 TD's and just 1 pick. Their defense which has caused them problems has played much better allowing 17 points or less in 3 of their last 4 game. When they played the Saints in New Orleans they were a 10 point dog so I'll take the same spread with them at home.

Brady has thrown just 4 TD passes in his last 5 games and is hobbled with a knee injury. Miami doesn't score a lot of points as they average just over 20 a game and the defense allowed 17 points or less in their last 2 home games.

PANTHERS @ BROWNS
Carolina has lost 4 straight games and have really put their playoff hopes in jeopardy. In their 24-17 loss to the Bucs last week the defense allowed almost 450 total yards to the Bucs and they never had the lead as they were down by 10 points most of the game. Newton threw for 300 yards which everyone does against the Buc defense but also threw 4 picks. They haven't scored more than 21 points in their last 5 road games and lost 4 of them. Their defense has allowed at least 28 points in 4 of their last 5 games and allow over 25 points and over 250 passing yards a game. The Browns had won their 2nd straight game for the 1st time this season before losing last week when Mayfield happened to have his worst game as he threw 3 picks. In his 5 previous games he threw 13 TD's and just 2 picks but last week he did complete 67% of his passes and Cleveland does have a balanced offense that passes for 239 yards and rushes for over 120 yards a game as Mayfield has completed over 60% of his passes in his last 6 games. Carolina averages over 30 points a game at home and less than 20 on the road so this will be a tough place for them to get a win.

JAGS @ TITANS
The bookmakers are projecting a low scoring game between Jacksonville and Tennessee, and that makes some sense. The Jags just shutout the Colts at home, and Tennessee has been strong on defense all year. The Titans have given up over 400 rushing yards though in their last two games, and nearly lost at home to the Jets last Sunday. The Jags on the other hand have been vulnerable to mobile quarterbacks. It was just two weeks ago that Josh Allen ran for 99 yards in a home win over Jacksonville. Leonard Fournette is fresh after sitting out last week, and I think the Jags will keep this game close. I am looking for at least 20 points in the first half.

REDSKINS @ EAGLES
Washington will be looking for it's 3rd road win out of their last 4 road games when they visit Philadelphia. McCoy took over at QB when Smith was lost for the year in their loss to Hoston 2 weeks ago. Last week he passed for over 250 yards and completed 63% of his passes with 2 TD's but had 3 picks. Washington has a pretty decent defense that is ranked 8th overall and allow less than 21 points a game. They are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 meetings with the Eagles. Philadelphia broke a 2 game losing streak when they beat the Giants 25-22 in their last game. They almost lost that game as they were down 19-3 and needed 11 4th quarter points to win the game. Their defense isn't nearly as effective as last season with their secondary getting torched for over 276 yards a game which is 4th worst in the league while offensively they are also having problems. They are ranked 26th overall and score less than 21 points a game. They beat the Giants twice and Jacksonville to account for their last 3 wins and are just 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall.

CAROLINA @ TAMPA
The Bucs are coming off a home win over San Francisco, but we can't read too much into that. They lost seven of eight prior to that, and their defense has been as bad as it gets. Tampa ranks near the bottom of the league in almost every defensive category, and Carolina comes in firing on all cylinders offensively. Cam Newton threw for 256 yards and two TDs on 25-of-30 passing against the Seahawks, but the defense couldn't stop Russell Wilson. When these teams played earlier this season they scored 49 points in the first half alone. The Bucs have gone over in nine of their last 12 overall.

CARDS @ PACKERS
Arizona has pretty much been beat up all season and have lost their share of games but of their last 7 losses 3 were by 3 points or less and 3 were by more than 10 points. Josh Rosen has taken over and improved his game. In his first 5 games he threw just 3 TD's but has thrown 7 over his last 4. As bad as their record they still have a defense that can slow twams down. They lost by 2 to the Bears and by 10 in Minnesota and they held KC to 26 points. Green Bay has lost 5 of their last 7 games with wins against Miami and a 3 point win over SF. The Cards have been this big a dog to 2 teams and both are powerhouse offenses. I don;t see how the line is so big for a bad Packer team.

BROWNS @ TEXANS
Cleveland had a big 35-20 win last week in Cincinnati for their 2nd straight. Their kast 4 losses have been against teams in the top 6 of the league offensively. Mayfield has been solid and has played beyond expectations for a rookie. He threw 4 TD's without a pick last week and in his last 5 games has 13TD's and just 2 picks. Houston has won 8 straight games but 3 wins were by 3 points or less and in 5 scored 23 points or less and only 2 wins were against teams with a .500 record. This is a perfect time for a let down and they haven;t been this big a favorite since they played Miami and Buffalo.

Buffalo won their 2nd straight game last week with the 2nd worst offense in the league. Their 2 wins were against the Jets and Jacksonville who are both 3-8. They have the 2nd worst passing offense and score just over 14 points a game, They haven't scored more than 13 points in their last 5 losses. Miami has had their share of problems but played a tough game last week at Indy before losing 27-24 and 5 of their last 6 losses have been on the road while 3 of their last 4 wins were at home. This is a team they can take advantage of on their home turf.

SEAHAWKS @ PANTHERS
Seattle won their last game 27-24 over a hot Green Bay team rolling up over 370 yards of offense. Wilson threw 2 TD's without a pick and they ran for 173 yards. They have the best rushing offense in the league getting over 150 yards a game which opens up a passing game. Wilson has thrown at least 2 TD's in 6 straight games with just 2 picks. Carolina lost it's 2nd straight game 20-19 last week. Their offense is ranked 19th with a passing game that gets just 230 yards a game and last week was just the 2nd game Newton threw for over 300 yards. Their pass defense is ranked 21st in the league and they allow more than 25 points a game. Seattle is 7-3-2 ATS in their last 11 road games.

Jacksonville lost it's 6th straight game after blowing a 16-0 lead to Pittsburgh in their last game. They have been held to 16 points or less in 6 of their last 8 games and 7 points or less in 3 of those. They are ranked 24th offesively averaging 17.6 points a game and last week Bortles passed for just 104 yards while throwing only 3 TD's in the last 4 games. Buffalo had a big 41-10 win in their last game as they passed and ran for over 200 yards each. They do have a pretty good defense that is ranked 2nd overall led by their secondary which is the best in the league allowing 202 yards a game. The dog is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 meetings.

SF has lost 7 of their last 8 games and are 0-5 on the road. Their only win was against the stumbling Raiders at home as their offense has been held to 23 points or less in 4 of their last 5 losses. Their defense is ranked 27th in points allowed at over 26 a game and they allowed at least 27 in 7 of their last 9 games. The Bucs have lost 4 straight but not because of the offense which scored at least 27 points in 5 of their last 7 losses. The offense is 3rd best averaging over 450 yards and 27 points a game. They get Winston back at QB today so look for their offense to take advantage of a weak SF defense.

Although the Bears have won 4 straight games, 3 of them were at home and 2 were against the Jets and Buffalo who are a combined 6-14. Their offense has scored at least 24 points in all 4 wins BUT QB Trubiskey who threw 7 TD's in the 4 wins is doubtful and probably won't play and his replacement hasn't played all season and hasm't started an NFL game since 2014. The Lions who generally speaking aren't in the hunt this time of the year always have Thanksgiving Day to get up for. They are 4-6 with 3 of the wins at home and last week upset the Panthers 20-19 in Detroit and also have a win over the Pats at home. Tough tough place and time for the Bears to pick up a win.

NY has had offensive problems all season and I don't think it will end in tonights matchup with SF. They haven't scored more than 20 points in 6 of their 8 games. They scored less than 20 in 5 of those 6 games and have lost 5 straight. They are ranked 29th in total offense and average less than 19 points a game. SF is comingboff a big 34-3 win over Oakland in their last game. They have the 4th best rushing offense which sould give them control of the clock and open up their passing game. Their defense has been their biggest concern but they have held their last 2 opponents to 21 total points. This is a game they should be able to control against a bad Giant offense.

Miami won an ugly game against the Jets last week 13-7 and are 5-4 this season. They have lost 4 of their last 6 games after a surprising 3-0 start. Their offense only averages 315 yards and 21 points a game but 2 of their losses were to New England and Houston on the road who are both ranked in the top 10 in the NFL offensively but Miami was only a 7 point dog to both. Today they are a double digit dog to the Packers who are 3-4-1 who are 1-3 ATS as favorites and 1-3 ATS in their last 4 overall. They have lost 3 of their last 4 games and needed 10 4th quarter points to barely get by SF 33-30 at home in their last win. Their other 2 wins at home were against hapless Buffalo and a 1 point win over Chicago. Miami hasn't been a double digit dog all year and they have played teams way better than Green Bay.

REDSKINS @ BUCS
Washington had their 3 game winning streak broken in last week's 38-14 trouncing by Atlanta. It was their 4th game out of their last 5 they were held to 20 points or less. It gets worse offensively as they lost 2 more offensive linemen to injury while their defense has allowed their last 2 opponents to pass for over 300 yards. Last week Ryan passed for 350 yards and threw 4 TD's against them and now they are 20th in the league allowing over 250 passing yards a game. The Bucs were beaten on the road for the 2nd straight week but their offense which is ranked 4th overall has the #1 passing game averaging 357 yards a game. They are also 8th in scoring as they average 29 points a game. They have a 3-5 record but are 2-1 at home and lost by 5 points or less in 3 of their last 5 losses while scoring at least 26 points in 7 of their 8 games. Ryan will start at QB this week and he has been very effective having thrown 17 TD's with 7 picks and completing over 66% of his passes.

Last week they had to score 2 4th quarter TD's in their win over the Pack and against the Bears Trubisky threw for over 330 yards and 2 scores. Brady hasn't been as sharp lately and in 3 of his last 4 games has thrown just 1 TD or less. Tennessee broke a 3 game losing streak with an impressive 28-14 win against a good Dallas defense on the road. Mariota completed over 72% of his passes for the 2nd straight week going 21 of 29 with 2 TD's and has thrown just 2 picks over his last 4 games. They have the 5th best defense overall and are 8th against the pass while leading the NFL allowing just 17.6 points a game.

They have lost 3 straight games and are 1-3 on the road with the only road win against a Jacksonville team that is ranked 29th in points scored averaging less than 17 a game. The Cowboys have been alternating wins and losses all season going 3-4. All of their wins have been at home including a 40-7 win in their last home game which was their highest point total all season. They could be 5-2 as their last 2 losses were by 3 points each, Prescott hasn't been overwhelming but has completed over 60% of his passes in his last 4 games throwing 6 of his 8 TD's on the year with just 2 picks. Their defense has been the glue as they lead the league in total yards allowing 314 a game and in points allowed. With the home field and a solid defense against a weak offense the choice is clear.

Two of the NFL heavyweights meet when the Rams visit the Big Easy to take on the Saints. LA comes in with an 8-0 record but have been a little shaky recently especially on the road. Other than a 39-10 win against a 2-7 49ER team, 4 of their last 5 wins were by 14 points total and they have gone 1-4 ATS in those 5 games. They are 6th in the league allowing 19.4 points a game but allowed at least 27 points in 3 of those 5 games and 2 of their last 3 road wins were by 5 points total. The Saints have won 6 straight since their only loss on opening day and with the help of the 2nd highest scoring offense in the NFL and the 8th ranked offense in yards per game. They have scored at least 30 points in 4 of their last 5 games while their 13th ranked defense has really stepped up allowing 23 points or less in their last 4 games. LA is only 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games against the NFC while the Saints are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. With the home team going 6-0 ATS in their last 6 meetings, who am I to argue.

KC is undefeated winning at home last week over the Jaguars to bring their record to 5-0. Rookie QB Mahomes has been sensational as he started out the season leading the Chiefs with 13 TD passes without a pick in his first 3 games. All 3 of those wins were over teams that allow at least 26 points a game and 2 of them are in the bottom 10 in the league in points allowed. Over their last 2 games the offense has cooled down and he has thrown just 1 TD with 2 picks in the last 2 games. They needed 14 4th quarter points to beat Denver 27-23 two weeks ago. They won last week but Mahomes threw 2 picks without a TD but Bortles returned the favor and threw 4 picks of his own to offset a 430 yard passing game against the 31st ranked pass defense of KC. Their defense is dead last allowing 462 total yards a game and have to face the Pats who have won all 3 of their home games and scored 38 points in each of their last 2 games which were home wins. Brady has thrown 6 TD's in the 2 wins while passing for his 1st 300+ yard game last week.

Houston's offense has come alive as Watson threw for at least 375 yards in his last 3 games but they kicked 4 field goals last week against Dallas as they stalled in the Red Zone. Look for their offense to put points on the board at home while their defense has a big day against a bad Bill's offense.

VIKINGS @ EAGLES
Minnesota has lost 2 straight games including an embarrassing 27-6 home loss to the Bills 2 weeks ago. They were also beaten by the Rams last week as their defense allowed Goff to pass for over 450 yards and throw 5 TD's in a road game. In their other road game the were lucky to pull out a tie against a banged up Packer team without a healthy Rodgers who passed for over 275 yards anyway. The Eagles are also playing below their level as they also have 2 losses but they were both on the road by a combined 9 points. Their strength has been at home where they won 9 of their 10 home games last year including the playoffs. Their defense is still tough as they are ranked 11th and allow 20 points a game while their rushing defense leads the league. With Wentz finally looking healthy the Eagles might use this game to get back to the 2017 winning team we haven't seen as of yet.

DOLPHINS @ BENGALS
Miami was hammered by the Pats 38-7 as their 24th ranked overall defense allowed 450 total yards and their 26th ranked pass defense has allowed over 600 passing yards the last 2 weeks. Even the Jets threw for over 300 yards which was Darnold's best game as he didn't pass for more than 200 in his other 3. Miami has been outgained in total yards in their last 3 games and against Oakland had 3 scores that took less than 4 plays each. The Bengals are 4th in the league scoring points and average over 375 total yards a game while Miami's offense averages less than 200 yards a game ranking them 28th. Cincinnati scored at least 34 points in 3 of their 4 games and even though their defense is in the bottom 10 in the league, if Miami has to match them score for score offensively then it's not even a contest.

PACKERS @ LIONS
Green Bay has 2 wins and in the 1st had to score 21 4th quarter points to pull out a 1 point win at home and again last week at home with a win over the toothless Bills. Not impressive to say the least and couple that with losing 4 out of their last 5 regular season road games isn't what I would call a good chance to win this game. To make matters worse, Rodgers is not healthy and a hit away from the DL. The Lions have put up at least 24 points in their last 3 games losing 2 of them by 5 points combined and they were on the road. In between is a 26-10 take down of the Pats at home. We know the Lions are defensively inept but when Stafford is on, they can score. This looks like a game that they can take advantage of. The last time the Pack played here, they were hammered 35-11.

RAVENS @ STEELERS
Baltimore looks to go 3-1 as they face arch rival Pittsburgh on the road. They have the league's best defense that allows 17 points and 273 yards a game and is especially good against the pass allowing 169 yards a game which is 2nd in the league. Offensively Flacco has them 9th in the league as they pass for 292 yards a game. He has thrown 6TD's with 2 picks and against the Bengals threw for 376 yards as they fell behind early 28-7 and had to fight back before losing 34-23. Pittsburgh will need to tighten up on defense as they are ranked 27th overall and allow over 400 yards and 30 points a game. They allow over 120 yards a game on the ground and that could allow the Raven passing game to put up a lot of points. Pittsburgh could find itself playing catch up against a great defense and that is not what they want. They struggled against a tough Cleveland defense scoring a season low 21 points.

BUCS @ BEARS
Tampa Bay came down to earth with their 1st loss 30-27 to Pittsburgh. It was inevitable as their defense allows a league worst 363 passing yards a game and over 430 total yards which is ranked 31st. QB Fitzpatrick had thrown 8 TD's with just 1 pick but the Steelers intercepted 3 of his passes and Big Ben tore up their secondary. This week they face a very good Bear defense that ranks 2nd against the run and 8th against the pass. Chicago allows a little over 18 points and less than 300 yards a game. They would be 3-0 if not for a 21 point 4th quarter by Green Bay in their opening game to beat them by a point 24-23. They held their next 2 opponents to 17 points or less while their offense with Trubisky at QB has thrown for over 200 yards in the last 2 games but has only 2 passing TD's They average over 115 yards rushing which should open up their passing game so Trubisky should have a nice day while their defense keeps the Bucs in the middle of the field.

TEXANS @ COLTS
Houston has yet to see their offense catch fire. Last season when Watson took over they went on a scoring binge as they scored over 30 points in 5 straight games. So far they are 0-3 and haven't hit 30 points but their losses have been by a TD or less. They have moved the ball averaging almost 400 yards a game but penalties and TO's have kept them from scoring. They scored only 4 TD's in 11 tries from inside the Red Zone while their defense has kept them close defending well against the pass. The Colts' offense has struggled with Luck passing for just 207 yards a game and in last week's loss they gained just over 220 total yards. This is a game the Houston defense can assert itself and their offense can get on track to getting them a needed win.

JETS @ JAGUARS
NY has looked horrible since their week 1 stunner in Detroit as their offense has been shut down and held to less than 20 points the last 2 weeks. They scored just 16 points total in 7 of the 8 quarters played in their last 2 games. Darnold was held to 169 yards with no TD's and 2 picks last week and he averages 220 yards a game with 3 TD's and 5 picks for the year. The Jaguar offense was held to 6 points and less than 250 total yards in Tennessee last week but their defense has held all 3 opponents to 20 points or less. They won their first 2 games including a 31-20 home win over the Pats and they can probably take control against NY this week and put points up on the board. Bortles threw for 376 yards and 4 TD's against the Pats. They are 3rd against the pass and 4th in overall defense so the Jets could have a long afternoon.

STEELERS @ BUCS
Pittsburgh is 0-1 and has a tie with Cleveland. Last week Big Ben threw for over 440 yards and 3TD's without a pick but their defense couldn't stop KC and they lost 42-37. In the tie with the Browns he threw for over 300 yards and a TD but had 3 picks which probably cost them a win. They face the Bucs who are a surprising 2-0 after beating NO in week 1 and then last week upset the Eagles. QB Fitzpatrick has thrown for over 800 yards and 8 TD's in the 2 games but their defense has allowed over 375 yards in the air and this is where Pittsburgh is one of the best with Big Ben throwing the ball. They got away with it against the Saints because they scored 48 points but they won't be able to do that consistently. Last week they scored 27 points in a win over the Eagles. Look for a Pittsburgh team hungry for a win take advantage of a defense that allows over 440 yards a game to put up a win.

COWBOYS @ SEAHAWKS
Dallas got their 1st win last week in a 20-13 home win over the Giants but their offense still struggled as they had less than 300 total yards with just 160 yards in the air. It was worse in week 1 in a 16-8 loss on the road to Carolina as they had less than 250 yards of total offense. They have scored 21 points or less in their last 9 games including preseason and less than 10 points in 3 of their last 4. Seattle lost a back and forth game 27-24 against Denver in week 1 as Wilson passed for 298 yards and 3 TD's but he also had 2 picks and was sacked 6 times. Last week they were within a TD to the bears when Wilson threw a pick 6 to give the Bears a 14 point lead in the 4th quarter. Both of those games were on the road and now they are at home where they beat Dallas 21-12 in their last meeting. They lost by 7 points or less in 5 of their last 7 losses while their last 2 regular season losses at home were by 2 points in each game.

49ERS @ CHIEFS
SF held on to get a win last week at home against Detroit after almost blowing a 30-13 lead before getting a 30-27 victory. They allowed Stafford to pass for over 300 yards and 3 TD's. This follows a loss in their 1st game where they allowed Cousins almost 250 passing yards and 2 TD's. In the loss to Minnesota Garoppolo threw for 260 yards but also had 3 picks. The Chief's offense scored 38 points in week 1 and 42 points last week to stand at 2-0. QB Mahomes threw 4 TD passes in their 1st win over the Chargers and then last week against a pretty decent Pitt defense, threw for over 300 yards and 6 TD's while the running game got an additional 127 yards. Their defense allowed Big Ben to pass for over 400 yards but that's about all they did as he had 60 attempts. If SF doesn't improve their pass defense, then this game could get out of hand very fast. KC is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games in September and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall while SF is 6-14 ATS in their last 20 games against a team with a winning record. The home team is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings.

PACKERS @ REDSKINS
The Packers were lucky to win their 1st game after being outplayed by the Bears and falling behind 20-3 after 3 quarters. They needed 3 TD's in the 4th quarter to win and scored on a blocked punt and a 75 yard pass play to win. In 5 red zone attempts, they scored just 1 TD while when an injured Rodgers was on the bench, his replacement Kizer was 4 of 7 for 55 yards and a pick 6. Rodgers is still just 1 hit away from sitting on the bench with a serious knee injury. Last week they blew a 23-14 4th quarter lead to the Vikings and had to settle for a tie. They allowed Cousins to throw for over 400 yards and 4 TD's and now have to go on the road to Washington to try and stop a balanced offense that rushed for over 180 yards against Arizona in a win and then Smith passed for almost 300 yards in a loss last week. The Redskin defense just might be underrated as they held Luck to under 200 yards passing and Indy to less than 300 total yards while in their 1st game, held Arizona to just over 200 yards of total offense. This is a tough spot for the Packers to win with an injured Rodgers.

COLTS @ EAGLES
Even though the Colts won last week they were held under 300 total yards. They have no running game and Luck was held below 200 yards passing. With the Eagles being the best in the league at stopping the run, it will fall on the passing game to produce. The Eagles lost just 1 game at home and that was their last game with most of their players resting for the playoffs. The Eagles are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 home games and against this Colt defense should put a bunch of points on the board.

RAIDERS @ DOLPHINS
After getting hammered 33-13 in their 1st game, the Raiders had a tough loss on the road to Denver 20-19. Their defense shut Denver out in the 1st half but a last second field goal in the 4th quarter cost them the game. They held Denver to just 222 yards in the air without a TD and had an interception while Carr completed 29 of 32 passes for 288 yards and a TD without a pick. Carr also threw for over 300 yards in their 1st game but 3 picks helped the Rams to the win. The Dolphins are a surprising 2-0 after they beat the Jets last week 20-12 but all of their points were in the 1st half as they were shut out in the 2nd half. They also allowed Darnold to pass for over 300 yards and in the 1st game they almost blew a 24-10 lead in the 4th quarter and needed a 75 yard TD pass for their last 7 points. They will be under the gun with Oakland's passing game and their 2nd half play in both games needs to improve. They have been held to 20 points or less in 6 of their last 9 games while losing 5 of them.

Denver won their first 2 games by 4 points total and had to come from behind to win by 1 point last week on their home field. They allowed almost 300 passing yards while also allowing Carr to complete an amazing 29 of 32 passes. Denver's QB Keenum threw for just over 200 yards without a TD pass and had 1 pick. Baltimore's QB Flacco meanwhile threw for over 370 yards with 2 TD's in a tough loss to the Bengals on the road. Denver is 1-9 ATS in their last 10 road games and are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings in Baltimore. The Ravens won by double digits in their last 3 games at home.

GIANTS @ TEXANS
NY hasn't scored more than 15 points in their 2 losses to start the season and were shutout in the 1st half last week in Dallas. Their offense was horrible as they ran for just 35 yards and in their 1st game were held to 9 points in the first 3/4 while Manning passed for just over 220 yards without a TD and 1 pick. They have been held to 18 points or less in 7 of their last 10 games including preseason and are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. Houston has had it's problems also losing their first 2 games but both were on the road. They are trying to bounce back after last season when they lost their QB Watson to injury for most of the year. When he was healthy he led their offense as they scored over 30 points in 5 straight games. Look for Houston to take advantage of a weak Giant offense and the home field advantage in an easy win.

We have 2 teams playing that were a combined 5-27 last season and had offenses that ranked in the bottom 10 of the NFL. Cleveland was ranked dead last averaging 14.6 points a game while the Jets averaged 18.6 points a game. If either team had anything positive to talk about it was their defense. The Browns were ranked 7th as they allowed 97 yards a game rushing and held 4 of their first 8 opponents to 21 points or less while losing a number of games after they blew 4th quarter leads. The Jets held 4 of their first 5 opponents to 21 points or less and then injuries only allowed them to hold 1 of their last 6 opponents to 21 points or less. Offensively NY has scored 19 points or less in 9 of their last 10 games including pre-season while Cleveland has scored 21 points or less in 8 of their last 10 games. Between both teams, 13 of their last 17 games played have gone under as well as 4 of their last 6 meetings in Cleveland. Under is 11-3 in the Brown's last 14 home games.

The Falcons were beat up in their 18-12 loss to the Eagles as QB Ryan passed for just 251 yards and 0 TD's along with a pick. Their running game was awful as they totaled just 75 yards and had no answer for the Philly defense. They have now dropped 6 straight games dating back to last year with the offense scoring 14 points or less in all 6 games.

They have lost 6 of their last 8 games and 6 of their last 7 road games. They scored 20 points or less in 5 of the 6 losses and are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games. NY surprised everyone with a 48-17 destruction of the Lions in Detroit last week. Their defense held Detroit to just 39 rushing yards and forced 5 interceptions.

COLTS @ REDSKINS
The Colts went into the 4th quarter last week with a 6 point lead against a good Cincinnati team until losing the game. QB Luck threw for over 300 yards and had the Colts inside the Bengal 20 but an 83 yard fumble return for TD put the nail in the coffin and kept the Colts from possibly scoring to win the game. Washington scored just 3 points in 3 quarters of play last week but ripped off 21 points in the 2nd quarter to beat the Cards in Arizona. QB Smith didn't have a great day as he passed for 247 yards with 2 short TD passes. They did most of their damage on the ground with 182 running yards and had the ball for over 17 minutes longer than Arizona. This week they have to watch out for Luck and the Indy passing game as the Cards passed for less than 160 yards last week. Indy has won the last 3 meetings while the Skins have lost 4 of their last 6 games and scored 20 points or less in 5 of their last 6.

It was the 11th straight game dating back to last season they were held to 20 points or less and the 5th loss in their last 6 road games. Watson is suffering from concussion like symptoms and he could see limited action. The Titans their offense stalled last week until the 4th quarter when they scored 17 of their 20 points as their passing game suffered as QB Mariota left with an injury and just 103 yards of passing. The home team has won 8 of the last 10 meetings between these teams. It seems the play on the home team against these struggling offenses is the play.

They are ranked 4th in total defense and in points allowed (18.4 a game) and in 4 of their last 5 home games allowed opponents 10 points or less. The Eagles lost a bit on offense losing Wentz but still have 1 of the best defenses so getting points at home is a gift.

Their offense and defense has been inconsistent all year and 3 of their last 4 wins came against 2 teams with 6-10 records and 1 team with a 5-11 record. This is a lot of points in a playoff game to give to a pretty good Tennessee team.

CARDS @ SEATTLE
Arizona is 3-2 over their last 5 games and that is their best stretch over 5 games all year. Their defense allowed 20 points or less in their last 3 games and 23 or less in 6 of their last 8. Their defense is ranked 6th in total yards and 4th in stopping the run. Seattle lost 2 of their last 4 games and have been outgained in yards in their last 4 games. QB Wilson threw for just 93 yards last week in their win over Dallas and only 142 the week before. They average just 332 yards of total offense a game and score less than 23 points. They have struggled on offense all year and this is a big spread to cover against this Card defense.

PANTHERS @ FALCONS
Carolina has won 7 of their last 8 games and want to improve on their #5 seed if they lose this game. They are 4th in the league running the ball while QB Newton has passed for less than 200 yards in 6 of his last 8 games and is nursing a bad shoulder. Their defense has not played their best football and has allowed at least 24 points in 4 of their last 5 games and have allowed 27 and 31 points in their last 2 road games which was the most allowed in back to back road games this season. Atlanta can clinch a playoff spot with a win or hope Seattle loses. They have won 5 of their last 7 games with help from a defense that allowed 23 points or less in 9 of their last 10 games and 20 points or less in their last 4 home games. Their last 2 losses have both been on the road.

BROWNS @ STEELERS
Cleveland will try and get their 1st win and not end up 0-16 for the year. Their offense has been held to 16 points or less in 5 of their last 6 games but they have lost a bunch of games after being ahead or within a few points in the 4th quarter. Their defense hasn't allowed more than 27 points in 5 of their last 6 games. Pittsburgh will probably rest most of their key players because of injury risks as they have wrapped up their division. Cleveland has more incentive than Pittsburgh while in their 1st meeting the Steelers won 21-18.
