1/12 VIP Picks

3-2 for those of you who played the Lakers over, 2-2 for those of you who didn’t. We only missed our teaser by 1.5 points, I expected the Vikings to score more than 10 points. On to today!

Texans (+10) - These teams played earlier this season and the Texans won 31-24 even though Deshaun Watson threw 2 interceptions in that game. Yes, Patrick Mahomes played in that game, he even threw for 3 touchdowns in that game. The Texans were able to get whatever they wanted in that game where the racked up 280 passing yards and 192 rushing yards. The Chiefs are definitely playing great at the right time and come in on a 6 game winning streak. The Texans have some good momentum after getting down 16-0 before storming back to win last week against the Bills. I’m not saying the Texans will win but I do think that their offense will keep this game close and cover the +10.

6:40 EST

Seahawks (+167) - The Seahawks have been good to us all year and we are riding with them again today. A couple common opponents to look at here are the Eagles who the Packers lost to and the Seahawks beat twice and the 49ers who the Packers lost 37-8 against and the Seahawks beat them once and came up a yard short of beating them twice. Wooo how about that run on sentence for you! The Seahawks had some tough losses down the stretch of the regular season but their win last week was impressive. Seattle has been winning on the road all season and they come in with an 8-1 road record including last week’s road playoff win. Despite the Packers great 13-3 record, they let a lot of teams hang around this season and this Seahawks team will take advantage of that.

Texans (+16) / Seahawks (+10) - JACKHAMMER - You see the breakdown of each team above, I’m even more confident adding a touchdown of insurance on top of the spreads. Let’s JACKHAMMER this one!

Lightning ML / Heat ML (-112) - The Lightning will be going for their 11th straight win tonight and all fun streaks come to an end but I don’t think it will be tonight for the Bolts. They have been clicking on all cylinders. The Lightning have already beat the Devils once this season. I like the Lightning tonight who are averaging just about 1 goal more per game than the Devils. Then we have the Heat who fucked us the other night but they have a good matchup tonight against the 10-29 Knicks who they beat by 15 in their only head to head meeting this season.
