12/8 VIP Picks

3-2 with a +164 parlay for a profitable day but we were just 2 yards away from an Ohio State cover of -16.5 after being down 21-7 at half. If you told me Ohio State would be 2 yards away from covering before the game I would take that 10 times out of 10! On to NFL SUNDAY!!

1:00 EST

Ravens (-6.5) - The Ravens continue to look better week after week and they are coming off of a big win against the 49ers last week who were the #1 team in the NFC.  The Bills really haven’t played any tough opponents this season to be honest, Patriots and Titans? That’s about it. They lost to the Oatriots 16-10 and the Ravens rolled over the Patriots 37-20. I believe in the Bills defense but they haven’t seen anyone like Lamar Jackson yet and he has thrown for 25 touchdowns and has run for 5 more. The duel threat that he presents is virtually unstoppable and he’s going to win the MVP. The Ravens defense has been playing great as well and I think they will shut the Bills offense down like they did to the Rams and Texans in recent weeks holding them to 6 and 7 points. Give me Lamar and the Ravens to cover.

4:25 EST

Titans (-3) - The Titans have been hot and they have won 5 of their last 6 and have themselves back in the Wild Card hunt. The Raiders have lost their last 2 games and even though they were on the road, that’s not a good excuse to get outscored 74-12. The Titans beat the same Chiefs team that just beat the Raiders 40-9 last week. I never thought I’d be saying this but Ryan Tannehill has given this Titans team life. They have scored 31, 42, & 35 in their last 3 games and judging by the way the Raiders defense has played lately, they should put up another nice number today. Give me the Titans to cover on the road.

8:20 EST

Seahawks (-110) - The two teams played back in early October and the Seahawks prevailed. The Seahawks have gone 6-1 since then with the one loss coming to the best team in the league (Ravens). The Rams have gone 4-3 since then losing to the 49ers who the Seahawks beat and don’t forget about that 45-6 embarrassment against the Ravens on Monday Night Football a couple of weeks ago. With last week’s win over the Vikings, the Seahawks took the #1 seed in the NFC and they seem to have something special going on. Russell Wilson completed 74% of his passes and threw for 4 touchdown passes in the first meeting against these two teams and nothing makes me think the Rams will be able to slow him down tonight. Give me the Seahawks!

Parlay:

1:00 EST

Ravens ML / Packers ML / Texans ML (-118) - It is double dipping since we already have action on all three of these teams but I love this parlay today and -118 is too good of value to pass up on. The Ravens will be on the road but they will be going a Bills team who hasn’t really been tested this year. Lamar Jackson continues to dominate and I expect more of the same today. Then we have the Packers at home where they are 5-1 this season and that one loss cane where Aaron Rodgers couldn’t score from the 2 yard line. They will host the 3-9 Redskins and I just don’t see how they can lose this game straight up, they are favored by two scores. To close it out we have the Texans at home coming off two good looking wins against the Colts and Patriots. The Texans are already 3-0 against AFC West teams this season and I think they will make it a clean sweep today against the 4-8 Broncos. -118 is GREAT value for this parlay.
