Great day of football yesterday! Straight picks go 3-1 and teaser selections go 5-1. Let’s keep it rolling into NFL SUNDAY! KOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOFSPORTS!
Chiefs (-8) - The Browns have been in some close games today and have had chances to win towards the end of games but that will not be the case today against this Chiefs team. The Browns lost by 15 to the Steelers last week and then they fired their coach. That makes for a tough short week of preparation for the second best team in the AFC (I said it KGB). Let’s take a look at the common opponents in this one - the Browns tied and lost by 15 to the Steelers who the Chiefs beat by a touchdown. The Browns lost by 24 to the Chargers who the Chiefs beat by 10. When you think of the Chiefs, you think of the unstoppable offense which currently ranks #1 in the league with 36.2 points per game and they will be up against this Browns defense that ranks 24th in the league allowing 26 points per game. I don’t see any way that the Browns can cover in this game. CHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEFS BIG.
Steelers (+2) - Since losing to the Ravens on September 30th, the Steelers have run off 3 straight wins and 2 of those wins came by double digits. The Ravens have gone the other way by losing 2 of 3 since then and they didn’t look good last week against the Panthers in a 36-21 loss. The Ravens have only won the season series against the Steelers 1 time in the last 10 years. They have split the series 6 of the last 10 years. These teams seem to be going in opposite directions and I like the Steelers to get the win today, let’s take the +3 just because we can.
Texans (+1.5) - LOVE the Texans today! They have won 5 games in a row and they have looked good doing it! The Broncos have lost 5 of their last 6 and although they have hung around with some good teams, they have lost the games. The Texans are on the up and up and this is a team that should be feared in the AFC. They will also have that triple D threat with Deshaun, Deandre, and now Demaryious who will be playing against his former team who traded him earlier this week. The Broncos have only beat one team with a winning record this season. Give me the Texans to continue their winning streak today but again, take the points that the books are handing us. Texans +1.5.
Teasers: Play in groups of 2. Listed in order of confidence:
Seahawks / Chargers OVER (42.5)
Chiefs ML / Pats ML (-135) - JACKHAMMER- Great value for the two best teams in the AFC to win straight up!
Lightning (-210) - We usually don’t play moneylines that are more than -200 but we NEED a winner in NHL and the Lightning have a great matchup today against a Senators team that has lost 4 of their last 5. This is a slump buster pick for NHL.
