The 49ers look to get back on track after a close road loss to the Ravens when they head to New Orleans to take on the Saints. The Saints hit the board as a -3 point favorite but betting action has driven the line down to -2.5 at some betting shops. Read on to get Horne’s opinion on where your money should land.
The Raiders have shown tenacity despite getting their teeth kicked in the past couple weeks. Now a Tennessee Titans team who is playing really well comes in with a fishly line of -2.5. This suggets the oddsmakers/bookies think the Raiders are going to win this game straight up. The general betting public can’t unload their wallets fast enough as the Raiders are seeing 65% of the action at the windows. Meanwhile, sharps/wiseguys are smiling, waiting for the number to be bet up to 3 so they can hammer it. Don’t fall into this nasty trap game.
Philip Rivers looks like a guy with two weiners, with one of them being attached to his right shoulder. Age is taking it’s toll on the signal caller but it’s not likely to matter in this game as the Jags have one of the worst run defense’s in the NFL and Anthony Lynn and crew are sure to take note. Expect Melvin Gordon to see 20+ carries and Austin Ekeler to also get some good run in a very winnable game for the Bolts.
Many industry insiders refer to touts as handicappers that flip coins to determine winners. This is true in many cases as many of these clowns don’t watch the games and can’t tell their ass from a hole in the wall. With the Panthers/Falcons being so bi-polar this year, even astute NFL handicappers may have to flip a coin to determine the winner on this one because both of these teams are unpredictable as hell!
All we heard last week was how much trouble the Broncos were in with Drew Lock at the helm. It’s always a good thing to watch some video of a player prior to trusting TV pundits. Once the smoke cleared, the kid was actually somewhat impressive hitting Courtland Sutton for some very sleek completions. Will this kid maintain the same composure in his first NFL road game? Loot gives his pick to cover this Week 14 point spread (+9.5).
Brace yourself for what you’re about to read! The Bungles are getting better! I was surprised to see the Browns laying more than one score (Opening Line -9) as it’s no secret that Freddie Kitchens is in over his head. The only thingthat stands in the way of a Bengals cover is upper management asking the team to tank to assure a top pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. And that could happen.
We’re a website that gives opinions on games. With that being said, sometimes NFL matchups present us with questions that we simply can’t answer. What came first the chicken or the egg?? If you can figure that out, you can pick the winner of this Jeckyll and Hyde affair!
Our office is divided on this one. The Jets have looked like absolute garbage at times and the Dolphins have seemingly come back from the dead, led by Fitzmagic. Keith is suggesting to lay the points with New York, but I beg to differ!
Poor coaching lost the game for the Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day. Jason Garrett continues to make questionable calls which leads us to believe he can’t be trusted when it comes to covering point spreads. However, there is still betting value with the total. Jay has a firm take on whether this Week 14 Thursday Night Football game goes over or under the posted total of 43.
Week Thirteen Monday Night Football will be one of the best MNF contests we’ve seen in quite some time as two teams viewed as Super Bowl LIV contenders meet up to do battle with a point spread of 3. The Minnesota Vikings have performed well as underdogs under head coach Mike Zimmer at 23-14. While this game looks to be competitive on paper, one team has a ton of betting value.
If you think the NYG line of +6 is fishy, you’re onto something! The Pack can’t stop the run so the NYG should be able to keep it close. The Giants secondary is like a wet paper bag, so expect Aaron Rodgers to have a solid passing day as well, assuming the weather is decent. Check out Ted’s take on this Week 13 head scratcher before placing your bet!
The L.A. Rams on a short week after getting destroyed by the Ravens are toxic. I’ve been a big believer in the Rams all season they’ve been a constant letdown. Fool me no more! The Cardinals come into this game at +3 and are a LIVE barking dog!
This is one of those games you look at and envision Patrick Mahomes throwing bombs down the field vs. a bad Raiders secondary. Especially after the showing Oakland had vs. the Jets last week. Truth be told, KC isn’t playing that great of football right now, leaving the door open for a potential double digit barking dog Sunday. The Raiders strength is ground and pound with Josh Jacobs. KC’s weakness is run D. Check out who Loot is betting on in this Week 13 barnburner before placing your bet!
Philip Rivers has deteriorated in front of our eyes. Is it me, or is his arm angle dropping even more than previous seasons? His passes are falling short and you can see him melting down as the camera pans in on him after his mistakes. This guy is washed up. Denver is licking their chops to attack this “Sidearm Kitna”. I’m bringing a wheelbarrow with me to the betting window this week!
Week 13 NFL blesses us with a potential preview of what Super Bowl LIV may look like as the 10-1 San Francisco 49ers travel to Baltimore to take on the Ravens as +6 underdogs. Can anyone stop Lamar Jackson? Keith has your answer!
“He who runs the ball and plays good defense wins games.” This should be the mantra of the Tennessee Titans, who are gaining SERIOUS momentum and becoming a serious contender behind head coach Mike Vrabel, who is a winner. Bet the Titans this week and consider putting down a lunch money bet on the Titans to win the Super Bowl at 100-1. THIS COULD HAPPEN.
