NFL Football Picks
Professional Football Handicapper Dan Jamison gives his pick with analysis on who he thinks will win Super Bowl 54 as well as some prop bets worth betting.
With so many eyes on the Super Bowl, sportsbooks roll out hundreds of proposition wagers ranging from whether the coin toss will be heads or tails, all the way down to how many times an announcer will mention something. Loot takes a look at some of the more practical Super Bowl LIV prop bets you can cash in on.
As we wind down to “The Big Game”, we’re having multiple writers do their thing so our readers can get all their takes, even if they differ. In this article, Keith Allen makes a case for the KC Chiefs to win the Super Bowl and gives us and over/under pick as well!
And then there were two! Super Bowl LIV takes place in Miami in a couple weeks where the Kansas City Chiefs have opened as a -1 favorite over the San Francisco 49ers. KC hasn’t been to the big dance in 50 years. The Niners have had their fare share of Super Bowl appearances, but not for a couple decades. Loot takes an early look at the teams playing in SB LIV.
Many were surprised to see the NFC Championship game point spread to be as high as -7.5 in favor of the San Francisco 49ers. Not us! The Niners defense is healthy again. The same defense that burnt down the Packers house to the tune of 37-8 at Levi’s Stadium on November 24th. SF is in a prime position to win the Super Bowl this year and it’s not likely that the Pack will be able to stop them.
Some analysts are concerned about the Titans ability to keep up with the Chiefs scoring, especially with their lack of a passing game in recent weeks. But that didn’t hold them back in their earlier meeting a 35-32 win at home. In the victory the stat line showed Tennessee amassing 146 passing yards and 225 rushing yards. Read on to get Loot’s AFC Championship prediction.
Week 19 NFL provides us with a matchup that is sure to provide excitement and drama, as crazy things usually happen when the Seahawks and Packers meet. The 2012 “Fail Mary” and 2014 playoff overtime thriller are just two examples of the fireworks displayed when Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers go head to head. Ted’s predicting a close game where he sees the Cheeseheads moving on, but the Hawks covering. See his full take before placing your bet!
The Kansas City Chiefs play host to the Houston Texans as -9.5 home favorites Sunday afternoon Arrowhead in a game that is likely to baffle most recreational bettors. Many will remember that Houston went into KC in Week 6 and beat the Chiefs, hindering their ability to handicap this one properly. QB Pat Mahomes was hurt and KC wasn’t playing very well at the time. They’ve since won four out of their last five games by double digits and Mahomes looks as good as ever. Unbelievably, 50% of the money is coming in on the Texans! Keith gives 3 reasons why his pick is the Chiefs to cover the spread.
The NFL’s version of David vs. Goliath takes place in the Divisional Playoffs Saturday night night at MT&T Bank Stadium as the Baltimore Ravens play host to the Tennessee Titans as hefty -9 favorites. Winners of 12 in a row, the Ravens pretty much blew out all but two opponents during that stretch, with the exceptions being the Bills and Niners, a pair of running teams. Can Derrick Henry keep the Cinderella dream alive?
The Vikings shut down the Saints offense for the majority of the game. They are banged up in the secondary so a repeat this week in the Divisional Round may be a difficult task. That said they have proven all season that they can shut down TEs and may be able to limit SF’s best weapon George Kittle.
