Yikes! 3-6 last night and there’s nothing else to say than it fucking sucked and nothing went our way. Need a big bounce back day today.
Ravens (-3) - The Ravens are one of the best teams in the league that no one is talking about. They come into this one 3-1 and they have already have gone on the road and beat an AFC North opponent. The Ravens defense is ranked #4 in points allowed per game and that will make it tough for the Browns offense to get going. On the flip side, the Ravens offensive attack has been balanced with the run and the pass and that has kept defenses on their toes. I think the Ravens go into Cleveland today and win by double digits.
Panthers / Giants Over (43.5) - Here’s one where both offenses haven’t been great these season but the defense haven’t been great either. The Panthers are allowing 20 points per game and the Giants are allowing 23 points per game. The Panthers are coming off of their bye week so they have had extra time to prepare for this one and the Giants are facing a must win situation if they want to keep their season alive. I don’t think the Giants will win this game but I do think that they will be playing aggressive to try and stay in this game. I like this one to go over 43 - we need 22 a side.
Broncos (-1) - This line seems too good to be true but it is too good to not take. The Jets have now lost 3 games in a row and they are coming off of an absolute blowout loss to the Jaguars. The Broncos on the other hand are 2-2 but they have lost to two really good teams in the Ravens and Chiefs. I won’t put Denver’s defense on the level of Jacksonville’s but I will say that I think the Broncos defense will cause problems and shut this Jets offense down today. I think the Broncos offense will be able to put up enough puts to get this win today.
My top teaser combo:
Falcons (+9) / Bengals (0)
Brewers (Miley) (+140) - Never would I ever expect to trust Wade Miley in a playoff game but with the numbers the Brewers lineup has against Marquez, he won’t need to be perfect. The Brewers come in with a .342 avg & .618 slg% against Marquez in 76 at bats with 5 homeruns against him. They will be swinging in the thin air of Colorado today and I think the Brewers will go in and out slug the Rockies which will lead to a sweep for the Brew Crew.
I don’t like any of the hockey game.
