12/23 VIP Picks



Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh tough day all around and it started with a BAD beat with the Memphis kicker making the field goal to hit the over but there was a time out so then he had to rekick and he missed it. Such a joke! We need a big NFL Sunday.

NFL:

Rams (-14) - The Rams have lost two games in a row but they are still in the race for the #1 seed in the NFC. They should be able to get back on track today against a bad Cardinals team who they beat 34-0 in their first meeting this season. The Cardinals come in to this one just 3-11 and they have lost by 14+ five times this season. Todd Gurley had a big game in the first meeting against the Cardinals and he should have another one today against their 30th ranked rushing defense who is allowing 144 rushing yards per game. Look for the Rams to run away with this one.

Dolphins (-3) - Buy the half point to get this one at -3. The Dolphins host the Jaguars today and it’s the first game at home for the Dolphins since the Miami Miracle against the Patriots. The Jaguars had an impressive win against the Colts, the only thing impressive was that they held that offense to a shutout. However, the Jags have lost two in a row since then with a 30-9 loss to the Titans and then a 16-13 loss to the REDSKINS. The Dolphins are just one game back in the Wild Card standings so they will be plenty motivated for this one today. On the flip side, the Jaguars are 4-10 and basically have nothing to play for. Confirmed, they don’t have anything to play for. The Dolphins are 6-1 at home this season and they should get another win today to make it 7-1 on the season.

Saints (-6) - The Saints offense has been off the last few weeks, even their game against Tampa it took a big second half to put up 28 points, The other two games they scored 12 against the Panthers and 10 against the Cowboys. They should be able to get back on track today against a Steelers defense who has struggled against top 5 ranked offenses and allowed 42 points to the Chiefs and 33 to the Chargers. It looks as though the three games on the road has factored in to how productive this Saints offense has been but they will return home today where they have covered -6 in 4 straight games. The steelers are coming off of a huge win against the Patriots but they have still lost 3 of their last 4. I like the Saints to get out to an early lead at home and never look back. Saints are currently one game up for the #1 seed in the NFC. Let’s go Saints!

Vikings (-6) - The Vikings are holding on to a Wild Card spot right now thanks to their tie against the Packers earlier this season but they need to win out in order to hold on to that spot. Luckily, they get to play the Lions today who they beat 24-9 in their first meeting of the season back on Nov 4. The Lions have lost 4 of their last 6 and one of those wins was only because the Panthers went for 2 at the end of the game instead of kicking the extra point. The Vikings had two tough road losses in a row against the Patriots and Seahawks but they bounced back last week with a blowout win over the Dolphins. The Lions weren’t able to score a single touchdown against this Vikings defense in their first meeting. Look for the Lions to continue to struggle today and the Vikings should win this one by two scores (or more).
