12/21 VIP Picks

3-1 with a JACKHAMMER win last night to put our record at 10-1 over the last three Friday’s! We are in the Christmas spirit now and there’s a ton of action out there for us today! Let’s get right into it!

 NFL:

1:00 EST

Texans (-3) - The 9-5 Texans simply have more to play for today than the 7-7 Bucs. The Bucs will also be without their top two receivers Mike Evans & Chris Godwin who are ranked #2 & #4 in the league in receiving yards, they will be missed. Jameis Winston will continue to chuck it up, he’s not scared to throw the ball down field and that’s why he leads the league in interceptions thrown with 24 this season. I expect the Texans to attack the Bucs passing defense which ranks #30 out of 32 in the league. Big games from Deshaun Watson and Deandre Hopkins should give the edge to Houston in this game as well as a guaranteed turnover (or 2) from Jameis. Give me the Texans on the road to come out playing with more energy and to get this win today.

Teaser:

Patriots (-0.5) / 49ers (-0.5) - Go ahead and call me a homer for including the Pats here but I refuse to count Tom Brady out in BIG games until he proves otherwise. The critics continue to talk shit and time and time again he proves them wrong. The Pats offense hasn’t looked good this season and they have lost 2 of their last 3 but we have seen this movie before. The Pats lost back to back games last December before putting together their impressive Super Bowl run. What did Josh Allen do in Foxborough last year? 217 yards, 2 interceptions, & a 52.6 QB rating. This Pats defense held him to 153 yards and 3 interceptions in the first meeting between these two teams this season. The Pats defense steps up and Tom Brady finds a way to win another BIG game. Then we have the 49ers hosting the Rams who they already beat 20-7 IN L.A. earlier this season. The 49ers are battling not only for the division but the #1 seed in the NFC. Not sure what to think of the 8-6 Rams who have shit their pants two times in the last four weeks losing 44-21 in Dallas and 45-5 against the Ravens. We saw a low scoring game the first time these two played and I think that will be the case again tonight but I think the 49ers find a way to come out on top and set up a HUGE game for the division and #1 seed in the NFL next week against the Seahawks. Think about it, what does the NFL want to happen? 😜

Team Total:

FAU Over (28.5) - Florida Atlantic has gone over 28.5 in 10 of their last 11 games and I’m liking it again today. They are averaging 35.2 points per game this season and two things going for them is that the SMU defense is bad which has allowed opponents to score 31.8 points per game this season and the SMY offense is really good so this game should be played at a fast pace. The more SMU scores, the more scoring opportunities FAU will have as they try to keep pace with the #5 ranked scoring offense in College Football. They should go over 28.5 today.

Rockets ML / Avalanche ML (Even) - JACKHAMMER - loving the look of this Saturday night parlay! The Rockets will be on the road taking on the Suns who they just beat 115-109 a few weeks ago. The Rockets are coming off of two wins against the Clippers and Spurs who the Suns have recently lost to 120-99 and 121-119. The Suns have lost 5 in a row while the Rockets have won 4 of their last 5. The Rockets should win this game for us. Then we have the Avalanche hosting the Blackhawks who they have already beat three times this season and all three wins were blowouts with final scores of 4-1, 7-3, & 5-2. The 7-3 game was the one played in Colorado and the other two were in Chicago. The ice has been tilted one way when these two teams have squared off this season and I don’t see any reason to think that will change tonight. LFG 🔨

NHL:

10:30 EST

Blues (-130) - The Sharks started the season by struggling then they got hit for a while but they are back on the struggle bus losers of 7 of their last 8 with 5 of those losses coming by 2 goals or more. The Blues are going on the road after sweeping a 4 game home stand and they have a winning record on the road this season. I’ll take the hot team vs a struggling team, Go Blues!
