San Francisco vs Kansas City 6:30 ET
49ers (+) over Chiefs- Here's the rub...I see it in the SB props! Leading the NFL in rushing the season San Francisco has passed for barely 200 yards in their two playoff games while rushing for 571 yards against Minnesota and Green Bay. What I am seeing with the SB Props is a number way out of whack that I can't ignore it. Total passing yards for Jimmy Garoppolo opened at 259 and has been bet down considerable. But, the point is that the odds makers expect the Niners to make an adjustment and turn to their passing game here. Kansas City is averaging 419 total yards in the playoffs and the 49ers allowed a league low 169.2 yards passing per game. Take SAN FRANCISCO!

Tennessee at Kansas City 3:05 ET
Titans (+) over Chiefs- It is said that experience is the best teacher and after last year's AFC overtime Championship game at Kansas City the Patriots pull off the improbable win. Therefore, this will be Pat Mahomes second straight chance to get the the Super Bowl something that Andy Reid has only done once in 21 years of coaching. This is the fourth straight do-or-die road games for Tennessee and some may believe that to be a negative, I don't. The truth of the is matter when teams are playing well it's better to be on the road where there are less distractions from family and errants that have to be run. Teams seem to bond on the road more so than at home. The Chiefs weakness have always their defense and with Henry running the ball and keeping it out of Mahomes' hands. Titans are 7-2 ATS in their last nine since Tannehill took over at quarterback and 7-1-1 ATS versus the AFC. KC is 6-0-1 ATS in their last seven overall but just 3-8 ATS in the last 11 playoff games. Add that the road team is 8-2 ATS in the past 10 meetings and the underdog is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings. Take TENNESSEE!
|01-13-20||Clemson +6.5 v. LSU||Top||25-42||Loss||-115||25 h 57 m||Show|
Clemson vs L.S.U. 8:00 ET
Tigers (+) over Tigers- Okay, I must admit that LSU has had the more impressive resume and have shown to me that they were the best team in college football this year with the best quarterback. But, I am old school and don't believe the 'Champion' can be displaced until beaten. Clemson was undefeated last year and was crowned the Nation Champions and they have yet to lose this year, like boxing to me you 'must' defeat the champ. The 'public' of course is enamored with Louisiana State with Joe Burrow leading the way it is hard not to root for a team that defeated Alabama, Auburn and Georgia and everyone else they played and even the 'sharps' laying the points. The rap of Clemson is their scheduLe strength but they have proven worthy and will rise as an underdog (once again) here. Take CLEMSON!
|01-12-20||Seahawks v. Packers -4||Top||23-28||Win||100||8 h 13 m||Show|
Seattle at Green Bay 6:40 ET
packers (-) over Seahawks- How many times does it have to happen to 'us' when playing against the Seahawks. Last week we lost all chances when Carson Wentz went do in the first quarter and Philadelphia was not able to make up for the drop off in talent level. To start with Seattle is 8-1 ATS in their last nine games as a road underdog. Green Bay has not looked the same this season and yet are the No. 2 seed in the NFC and are 7-1 ATS against teams with a winning record and 501 ATS in their last six playoff games and are 5-0-1 ATS in the last six meetings in Green Bay. The Packers still are led by Aaron Rogers and he will be the difference. Take GREEN BAY!
|01-11-20||Vikings +7.5 v. 49ers||Top||10-27||Loss||-130||21 h 44 m||Show|
Minnesota at San Francisco 4:35 ET
Vikings (+) over 49ers- The more I hear about this game I question whether the Vikings have a chance. Reports of grumbling from with-in and a media's constant barrage on Kirk Cousins (along with the public's opinion of him). But, there something to be said about having NFL playoff experience and having multiple appearances under your belt and that is something that San Francisco's Garappolo doesn't have yet. Minnesota is 5-2 ATS on the NFC road underdog is 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings. The notes on the Niners aren't so hot when you see that they are just 6-19-1 ATS as home favorites and 1-3-1 ATS in their last five home games overall. Take MINNESOTA!
|01-05-20||Seahawks v. Eagles +1||Top||17-9||Loss||-110||18 h 2 m||Show|
Seattle at Philadelphia 4:40 ET
Eagles over Seahawks- The was no worse looking division champion than the Philadelphia Eagles as they had to win their last four to slip by the Cowboys. So banged-up are the Eagles that they were missing seven starters on offense in Week 17. Understand this, this Seattle team (especially Wilson's antics) have left me with a bloody nose and I don't want anyone to believe that this is a 'hate' bet...it is the STRONGEST NFL winner on the entire weekend. I have some great stats supporting Seattle as they are 10-3-2 ATS in their last 15 road games and that they are 15-6-4 ATS after as SU loss and they have dropped their last two. But, here I like this one the Seahawks are 2-5 ATS in their last seven playoffs games. I have god and bad surrounding the Eagles but the one I like is that they are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 as a playoff underdog. Take PHILADELPHIA!
|01-01-20||Wisconsin -2.5 v. Oregon||Top||27-28||Loss||-119||23 h 16 m||Show|
Wisconsin vs Oregon 5:00 ET
Badgers (-) over Ducks- My oh my...The Ducks win the Pac-12 crushing favored Utah and now they show up in the Rose Bowl ands underdog to the Big Ten loser Wisconsin. What I am thinking here is that the Big Ten is that much stronger both physically and probably mentally than their west coast opponents. The Badgers had Ohio State by the short hairs in the Championship game but let it slip away as a 14-point underdog that covered in the loss. I don't know if you get what I'm driving at but I will have the Badgers and so should you. Take WISCONSIN!
|01-01-20||Michigan +8 v. Alabama||Top||16-35||Loss||-105||19 h 54 m||Show|
Michigan vs Alabama 1:00 ET
Wolverines (+) over Crimson Tide- I am really looking forward to watching this contest as there is much to be learned about the Crimson Tide as to who they play this game. Michigan after the way they closed the season getting absolutely destroyed by Ohio State will be ready to erase the memory of that embarrassment. The Tide has been exposed of late failing 0-5 ATS in their last five against Top-10 teams. I believe that Michigan will show more heart here and we will get o see Nick Saban bitch to officials about his own mistakes. Harbaugh wants this one personally! Take MICHIGAN!
|12-31-19||Kansas State +3 v. Navy||Top||17-20||Push||0||6 h 1 m||Show|
Navy vs Kansas State 3:45 ET
Wildcats (+) over Midshipman- If there is a one-man gang in college football this year it is Navy dual threat quarterback Malcolm Perry who scored 21 touchdowns and ran for over 300 yards against Army. But, I know one thing about Kansas State, they will punish you as witnessed in their dominating win over Oklahoma. The Wildcats QB Skyler Thompson provided 22 TD's with 12 passing and 10 rushing and led a more balanced attack. Trends for the Navy are strong as they are 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 over and 5-0 ATS in their last five bowl games but they are 4-9-1 ATS against teams with winning records and they are 1-3-1 ATS on neutral sights. Kansas State can provide you with some ammo as they are 39-19-1 ATS in their last 59 games as an underdog and they are 4-0 ATS in non-conference games. Take KANSAS STATE!
|12-31-19||Florida State +4.5 v. Arizona State||Top||14-20||Loss||-110||4 h 23 m||Show|
Florida State vs Arizona State 2:00 ET
Seminoles (+) over Sun Devils- Sometimes certain matchups make you do things that you never though you would. For example, here I am backing the Seminoles after having seen them play a putrid season that saw them cover just four of 12 games and ending the year getting blown out 40-17 in their final game against state rival Florida. Arizona State is off of a pair of great wins defeating Oregon and rival Arizona to close the season after four straight losses. So how about this stuff...ASU is 0-8 ATS in their last eight games as a favorite, they are 1-6 ATS on neutral sites, they are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 bowl games and they are 1-4-1 ATS in their last six games overall. FSU having a terrible time with Taggart are 3-9-1 ATS as a dog bowl shine in bowl games going 10-2-1 ATS in their last 13 and 5-1-1 ATS as a bowl underdog. Take FLORIDA STATE!
|12-30-19||Virginia +15 v. Florida||Top||28-36||Win||100||10 h 38 m||Show|
Virginia vs Florida 8:00 ET
Cavaliers (+) over Gators- The moment this matchup was established I knew I liked my side and I haven't wavered since. I understand that there are a number of factors that should deter my side such as Florida is 3-0 in the Orange Bowl winning by an average margin of 15 points. I should also add that Virginia hasn't won a bowl games since 1995. For the most part I am not making the selection based on talent but on these teams previous outings. Florida closed the season with three huge wins including their final over arc rival Florida State 40-17 while Virginia was embarrassed and annihilated in the ACC Championship game by Clemson 62-17. Big effort out of the Cavaliers tonight. Take VIRGINIA!
|12-29-19||49ers v. Seahawks +3.5||Top||26-21||Loss||-120||14 h 58 m||Show|
San Francisco at Seattle 8:20 ET
Seahawks (+) over 49ers- Oh boy...who's next Steve Largent? The thing that I fear here is the oddsmakers over-reaction to Seattle injured running back situation. The Seahawks now have a pair of running backs that last played with the team in 2015 (Lynch) and 2014 (Turbin) and will still be running the same playbook. Jimmy Garoppolo has led the Niners to this point but I am having trouble with the way he wilted in the first meeting on a Monday Night. San Francisco has lost eight straight in Seattle and now they are installed the favorite...not with me! Take SEATTLE!
|12-29-19||Eagles v. Giants +4||Top||34-17||Loss||-115||10 h 58 m||Show|
Philadelphia at New York Giants 4:25 ET
Giants (+) over Eagles- This was my first love when I saw the board as the Eagles are coming off of a huge win over Dallas and need just ti win here to win the division crown. The Giants have David Jones back under center and he just had five TD passes against the Redskins and is brimming with confidence. Although Philadelphia is 9-3 ATS their last 12 meetings in New York they are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings overall. The pressure isn't all good for the eagles as a loss here and a Cowboys win would end their season. Guess what, it might happen...take NEW YORK!
|12-29-19||Jets +1.5 v. Bills||Top||13-6||Win||100||7 h 51 m||Show|
New York Jets at Buffalo 1:00 ET
Jets (+) over Bills- With zero motivation this week Buffalo is locked into their playoff fifth seed win or lose. After losing at New England last week where they had so much vested in that game that the odds makers believe the Bills will be taking this week 'off.' The Buffs are already thinking about Houston their most likely opponent in the Wild Card round. Look for Bell to have a big meaningless day and for the Jets to fly high here. Take NEW YORK JETS!
|12-28-19||Iowa State +4 v. Notre Dame||Top||9-33||Loss||-115||8 h 25 m||Show|
Iowa State vs Notre Dame 12:00 ET
Cyclones (+) over Fighting Irish- Let me start by saying that if this match-up was being played during Prime-time it might well be my highest-rated game of the day. No, need to explain other than this game 'must' be bogus. What I see is a club (Notre Dame) that had national aspirations being displayed as a warm-up for the FBS Championship Series and their disappointment has to be huge as they don't even get to play on New Year's Day. Iowa State meets the Fighting Irish for the first time and consider this game the biggest test in school history. Somehow, be it through emotion or officials bad calls the Cyclones storm the Irish. Take IOWA STATE!

Texas Bowl- Houston, TX
Oklahoma State vs. Texas A&M 3:45 ET
Aggies (-) over Cowboys- I guess this is where the SEC shows its depth and overall strength as the former Big-12 member Texas A&M favored and un-ranked over former rival Oklahoma State. The Cowboys and Aggies meet for the first time in eight years with State having won the past four meetings. A&M wants to atone for the embarrassing way they closed the season with a 50-7 loss to LSU and they are 5-1 ATS after allowing 40 or more points. Now in the SEC, Texas A&M is 11-1 ATS in their last 12 non-conference games. Take the AGGIES!
|12-24-19||BYU v. Hawaii +1.5||Top||34-38||Win||100||26 h 54 m||Show|
Hawaii vs B.Y.U.
Rainbow Warriors (+) over Cougars- I wouldn't be all that surprised if the Rainbow Warriors end up the favorite after all they are playing in the Hawaii Bowl for the ninth time in 18 years. But, actually their success has been limited, going 1-4 in the last five. I have a few trends that I believe surround this game as the dog has been good in the Hawaii Bowl 9-3 ATS in the last 12 and teams that repeat a bowl appearance two consecutive years are 6-0 SU in the second game. Take HAWAII!
|12-23-19||Packers v. Vikings -4.5||Top||23-10||Loss||-110||9 h 56 m||Show|
Green Bay at Minnesota 8:15 ET
Vikings (-) over Packers- There is only one way for Minnesota to win the Division and that is for them to defeat the Packers here and win again next week against beat Chicago at home while Green Bay then must lose at Detroit. The mystery here is how the Packers got into this position with Aaron Rogers not having his best of years and the Packers defense and offense both rank in the bottom half of the league. The Viking are 6-0 SU at home and the home team is 7-1 ATS in the last seven meetings. Take MINNESOTA!
|12-22-19||Chiefs v. Bears +6.5||Top||26-3||Loss||-110||19 h 54 m||Show|
Kansas City at Chicago 8:20 ET
Bears (+) over Chiefs- Here we go with the Bears again as the 'public' has played against them week after week with great success as Chicago is just 4-10 ATS on the season. Kansas City is pretty much locked into the third seed in the AFC with a chance to move into the second spot if those above them fail, but for the most part they know that they won't pass either the Ravens or the Patriots. After winning the Division last season the Bears are out of the playoff picture and can approach this game 'pressure' free. Look for the Bears to claw the Chiefs here. Take CHICAGO!
|12-22-19||Saints v. Titans +3||Top||38-28||Loss||-110||12 h 43 m||Show|
New Orleans at Tennessee 1:00 ET
Titans (+) over Saints- Congratulations to Drew Brees who is now the most prolific touchdown passer in NFL history as he is off of an in creditable 29-of-30 completions performance against the Colts. New Orleans who is still trying to improve their playoff seed with have difficulty maintaining the euphoria they experienced last Monday and can get caught by a needy Titans team that mets Houston next week but must win here. Tennessee has won five of the past six meetings and they get the money here. Take the TITANS!

Rams (+) over 49ers- The Rams did their thing last Sunday falling to Dallas 44-21 in 'our' NFC Game of the Year and now go the San Francisco to play the 49ers for their playoff lives. They must win and and again next week against Arizona who defeated them 34-7 in their first meeting. Although the Rams are just 2-6 ATS in the last eight meetings that was before they took the Niners seriously. LA is 7-2 ATS in their last nine road games and 13-6 ATS overall in their last 19 games. San Francisco in the home favorites role is 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 and 2-71- ATS within their conference. Take the RAMS!

Washington vs Boise State 7:30 ET
Huskies (-) over Broncos- I am looking forward to being in attendance for this game and I'm sure that Boise State will have huge fan support as after all this is the Mountain West Conference Bowl game. The Broncos are 12-1 on the year and yet come up an underdog against a pedestrian 7-5 Washington squad that is truly disappointed in their season. This is an unranked team (the Huskies) that is favored over a No. 21 ranked team with what can be considered a home field advantage. This is Chris Peterson's final game for Washington and it is fitting that he is going up against the school he coached for eight seasons and had an incredible 92-12 SU record. Take WASHINGTON!

Houston at Tampa Bay 1:00 ET
Buccaneers (+) over Texans- I this spot for the Buccaneers as they have won their last four and Jamis Winton is the NFL yardage passing leader although her leads the league with 24 interceptions. Houston can clinch the AFC South with a win here four the fourth time in five years. The poorly coach Texans are just 1-6 ATS as a favorite and 1-7 ATS after an ATS win. When big games are on the line you can expect the Texans to fall as they are 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 games in December while Tampa Bay is 9-1-1 ATS in their last 11 December games. Take TAMPA BAY!

Buffalo at Pittsburgh 8:20 ET
Steelers over Bills- Buffalo had a 3-game winning streak snapped at home against the Ravens and now take to the road for the next two starting in Pittsburgh Sunday night. The Bills big name is Josh Allen the quarterback from Wyoming took it on the chin last week completing just 43.6% of his passes. The Steelers are nursing their third string un-drafted rookie from Stanford Kevin Hodges. This might just be the spot to find out if the Bills are for real! They are 6-0-1 ATS in their last seven road games and 5-1-1 in their last seven as an underdog but just 1-5 ATS their last six against Pittsburgh. It may not be the 'Steel Curtain' but they can win for certain. Take PITTSBURGH!

L.A. Rams at Dallas 4:25 ET
Cowboys over Rams- Truly, I can't express how much I think of the Cowboys here. Sincerely, I don't fool with stuff like that. It is just the way this game set up with their national TV appears for both Dallas and the Rams. A few weeks ago 'we' posted the Rams who had been horrible in National TV games this season takes out Seattle after the Seahawks had dismantled the 49ers while Dallas was getting busted by New England and Buffalo. Last Thursday week posted the Bears 31-24 over Dallas as they and now it's the 'Boys turn. Everybody is sour on Wayne Garrett and even if he wins and makes the playoffs he is most like history with Dallas. Anyway he wins here. Take DALLAS!

Minnesota at L. A Chargers 4:25 ET
Chargers (+) over Vikings- After winning 12 games last season and dominating the Ravens in the playoffs for the Chargers to have won only five games this season and it has been a huge disappointment and its a lost season for San Diego (oops) the Chargers. This is a sandwich game of sorts for Minnesota as they lead the Rams by one game for the final NFC Playoff spot and trail Green Bay by 1-game for the Division lead. But, to their credit the Chargers have not quit and put up a 45-10 victory pasting over the Jaguars in Jacksonville and are 3-2 SU in their last five. Perfect spot for a Vikings letdown. And listen to this I mean read it...they are 3-8-1 after an ATS win and 1-7 ATS in their last eight after allowing less than 15 points. Take L.A. CHARGERS!

Army vs Navy 3:00 ET
Midshipmen (-) over Black Knights- Until the recent past the Navy has had the upper hand in this series but the Army has rallied to win the last three outright as underdogs. Although the Midshipmen had won the previous 14 meetings the Army is 7-2-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings. But, this season it looks like the old matchup where Navy has the advantage. Ranked No. 23 Navy is headed to the Liberty Bowl and meets Kansas State while the Cadets finish their season here as at 5-7 they miss out in post season play. The Midshipmen have triple revenge and I expect them to get it done. Take the NAVY!

New York Giants at Philadelphia 8:15 WT
Eagles (-) over Giants- So Eli Manning once again is the starter for New York and these next few game can have an impact on Eli's legacy as he enters this contest dead even in wins and losses as a NFL starter. This game of course has significant meaning for Philadelphia as they trail division leader Dallas by 1-game. The Giants with nothing to lose has already lost eight straight under David Jones while and the Eagles under pressure to win by any margin. But, these points are high and the Giants just don't play any football at all. Take PHILADELPHIA!

Seattle at L.A. Rams 8:20 ET
Rams over Seahawks- These darn Seahawks, I never seem to be able to get past them as Russell Wilson just does me in time and again. Seattle has won eight of nine while The Rams bounced back with a win over Arizona to get to 7-5 one-game out of the final NFC Wild Card playoff berth. It's time for Sean McVay to get some milage out of Todd Gurley and make hime earn his pay. Still, LA is 5-2 ATS against the Seahawks and 10-2 ATS against the NFC. Believe it or not Seattle is 3-7 ATS as a favorite and the Rams are 0-7-1 ATS as a home dog...go figure. Take LOS ANGELES RAMS!

Cardinals (+) over Steelers- These two rarely meet but Pittsburgh has won the last three meetings including Super Bowl XLIII 27-23. Since, the Steelers have won their last two and six of its past seven using back-up quarterbacks and have settled on their fourth choice rookie Devin Hodges. Arizona has lost five straight and has their own rookie at the helm in Kyler Murray who is anxious to bounce back from their beatdown loss to the Rams last week. The home team is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings. Take ARIZONA!

Wisconsin vs Ohio State 8:00 ET
Badgers (+) over Buckeyes- There was a time this season when I actually had thoughts that Wisconsin was good enough to end up as one of the FBS representatives. These two met in October and it wasn't even close as the Buckeyes trounced the Badgers 38-17 and it wasn't that close. OSU quarterback Justin Fields was named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week as he had four TD passes at Michigan last Saturday. Wisconsin has met the Buckeyes three previous times in the Big Ten Championship games and they have yet to prevail losing last 27-21 in 2017. This time around the Badgers know what they are up against and will make the adjustments needed. Take WISCONSIN!

Georgia vs L.S. U. 4:00 ET
Bulldogs (+) over Tigers- LSU enters this contest almost assured a spot in the CFP even if they stub their toe here as losing to a one-loss Georgia will keep them alive. The Bulldogs on the other hand must force the committee to raise them into the Playoffs with a win here. Okay, that leads me to believe Georgia will be more desperate and have a greater need and motivation. But, are they good enough to pull it off? Playing in the Georgia Dome has got to help the 'Dogs whose scoring defense is No. 4 in the nation at 10.4 points per game. LSU is No.1 in offense 48.7 led by JoeBurrow and they will face they toughest defense of the season here. Take GEORGIA!

Ragin' Cajuns (+) over Mountaineers- A pair of great offenses and balanced defensive team meet for the second time this season with comparative stats that make this close. Lafayette averages 38.8 ppg and Appalachian State has one of the top offenses (38.9 ppg) and both teams play defense as the Ragin' Cajuns surrender 17.8 ppg while the Mountaineers give up 18.8. Lafayette has 'covered the last two trips tp Boone but lost at home to the Mountaineers in early October 17-7 but return the favor here. Take RAGIN' CAJUNS!

Oregon vs Utah 8:00 ET
Ducks (+) over Utes- Utah has lost one game this season to USC (5* Megabucks winner) back in September and they have reeled off eight straight wins and 8-0 ATS since. Oregon has been disappointing as expected from their opening game when Auburn's 29-yard Hail-Mail was answered and they lost at the gun in a game they they dominated for 3 and half quarters. Then when it looked like they had regrouped and had an 8-game win streak of their own ended that was ended at home by a two-touchdown underdog losing to Arizona State 31-28. Friday's game may be played under questionable conditions as it has been a rainy week in the Bay area. The question might be who does this aid, the power game of the Utes or the speed game for the Ducks. At first it would appear that Utah gains and edge with their power game, but receivers that know where they are headed have an advantage over defensive backs that have to react to a cut. Oregon has the superior passing game behind future first rounder Justin Herbert who has 31 TD's and only five interceptions. Built for water... take the DUCKS!

New England at Houston 8:20 ET
Texans (+) over Patriots- Yes, the Patriots are 10-1 and are tied for the best record in the NFL and have beaten the likes of Dallas and Philadelphia the past two weekends but there is something missing. The defense carried them in those wins allowing 10 and 9-points while their offense provided only one scoring drive not set up by the defense. The home team is 6-2-1 ATS in the last nine meetings but the Texans are 1-4 ATS at home this season but this is the first time that they are an underdog...take HOUSTON!

Green Bay at New York 1:00 ET
Giants (+) over Packers- Through the years we have witnessed some classic encounters between these two old NFL stalwarts both during the regular season and the playoffs including NFL Championship games. It doesn't stand to reason that this will be another one of them as the Giants are marred in an 7-game losing streak and surely Green Bay is headed to the playoffs. The 'action' has been excessive on the Packers and even the harden stedfast New York supporters want no part of the Giants this week. I'm in...take the GIANTS!

Alabama at Auburn 3:30 ET
Tigers (+) over Crimson Tide- To start with I'm was quite surprised that this 'number' opened where it did. I expected it to be a bit higher as Auburn hasn't shown the kind of offensive diversity that is needed to overcome the Alabama defense. The Tigers have only three games scoring more than 24 points getting 55, 56 and 51 against imposters Kent, Miss St and Samford. But, there is something missing with this Crimson squad as Nick Saban has little confidence in his back-up quarterback and has been badly out coached in his last three big encounters. 'Bama has won eight of the last 11 meetings but the Tigers get it done! Take AUBURN!

Wolverines (+) over Buckeyes- No. 2 Ohio State (11-0) is two wins away from getting to the Final-4 and its starts here against arch rival Michigan. The Buckeyes have had their in this series winning 16 of the past 18 meetings including last season's 62-39 destruction of the Wolverines gaining 567 yards from scrimmage. OSU is on a 16-game win streak and will up against the nation's 4th ranked defense allowing just 267 yards per game. Michigan has won their last four and are 6-0 at home. Take the WOLVERINES!

Iowa at Nebraska 2:30 ET
Cornhuskers (+) over Hawkeyes- For Nebraska this has been one of the worst football seasons that I can ever remember for as they are 5-6 SU and a horrid 2-9 ATS. Despite hat we have witnessed this season with the Cornhuskers they are one win away from becoming bowl eligible. Iowa meanwhile, has won four of five and are striving for a New Year's Day bowl bid and a win here would go a long way toward that goal. Huskers need it more...take NEBRASKA!

New Orleans at Atlanta 8:20 ET
Falcons (+) over Saints- The storyline that I keep hearing is that the Saints will exact revenge upon the Falcons who took down New Orleans 26-9 three weeks ago in New Orleans. These two have a habit of playing close affairs as the underdog is 9-3 ATS in the last 12 meetings and as bad as the Falcons have been they are 4-0 ATS against teams with winnings records. After losing six straight both SU and ATS lowly Atlanta was able to rise on the road defeating the Saints and then Carolina 29-3 before falling apart against theTampa Bay last week. Look for the Falcons to fly over the Saints here. Take ATLANTA!

Baltimore at L.A. Rams 8:15 ET
Rams (+) over Ravens- If the defending NFC Champions are to make their late season push it must start here against the NFL's most surprising team and dynamic player in Lamar Jackson. Baltimore has won six straight going 4-0 ATS in their last four overall winning by a total of 101 points an average of 25.3 per win. The Ravens NFL leading scoring offense averages 34.1 per contest as Jackson has thrown for 19 TD's and just five interceptions while running for 781 yards averaging 6.7 yards an attempt with six TD's rushing. Jackson has 260 more rushing yards than the Rams leader Todd Gurley who ran the ball a season high 22 times last week. One thing LA has is Aaron Donald to harass Jackson and receivers Brandin Cooks and Roberts Woods return from injury. This game is way to important to the Rams who trail the Niners by 3-games and Seahawks by two. Take LOS ANGELES!

Green Bay at San Francisco 8:20 ET
49ers (-) over Packers- Not for nothin' b'cuz we all have seen what going on the past few weeks with Jimmy Garoppolo and if Carlo Giambino was still alive I would be very suspicious. San Francisco (9-1) is one game better than the Pack (8-2) in the NFC but Green Bay has probably been more impressive with Aaron Rogers leading them with 17 touchdowns and only two INTs. But, the facts are San Francisco has the edge on both offense 29.5 points to 25 but on defense as well holding opponents to 15 points while the Pack are at 20.5. a great game to WIN...take 49ERS!

Seattle at Philadelphia 1:00 ET
Eagles (+) over Seahawks- Russell Wilson does it time and again and I'm have seen it enough to know better, but football is a team game and although the Seahawks are 8-2 SU they have managed to outscore opponents buy just 2-points a game 27.5/25.4. Philadelphia lost a heartbreaker last week blowing a 10-0 lead to the Patriots and at 5-5 on the No. 8 seed on the outside looking in. The Eagles soar here overall a factious Seahawk! Take PHILADELPHIA!

S.M.U at Navy 3:30 ET
Midshipman (-) over Mustangs- My first thoughts about this game were running toward the Mustangs with their offense that averages 522 yards including 328 in the air. I remember the Navy getting so out-classed by Notre Dame and SMU having two weeks to prepare gives me concerns. It isn't like Navy was looking ahead to this game there biggest conference game of the year. and not thinking of the Irish so much, but here they are. The Midshipman run the for 350 yards a game and that will keep the ball out of the Mustangs hands (ha). SMU is 0-4 ATS in their our meetings at Navy. Take NAVY!

Kansas City vs. San Diego 8:15 ET
Chargers (+) over Chiefs- Now, this is a game that I will watch...My first though is to remember this one's in Mexico City. So, this is a home game for the Chargers, do you think they feel any different? Other than the altitude that they have the same advantage they have in Los Angeles...none. LA knows it has to keep the ball out of the explosive Chiefs offense's hands and will attack Kansas City's 31st ranked rushing defense which is allowing 148 yards per game with Melvin Gordon. Chiefs have lost 2-of-3 and their invincibly is gone. LAC 6-2-1 ATS following a loss. Take LOS ANGELES!

Chicago at Los Angeles Rams 8:20 ET
Rams (-) over Bears- A pair of 2018 Division winners can consider this close to an elimination game as the season makes its stretch run. The Bears offense is obscene producing 262 yards offense and only 80 yards rushing. Mitch Trubisky still dreams of Tim Tebow 'numbers' and has just eight TD passes on the season. Rams need take Todd Gurley (104 rushing attempts) off his 'work load' schedule and play football! Rams are 10-4 ATS last 14 games and 8-2 ATS vs NFC. Take the RAMS!
|11-17-19||Patriots v. Eagles +4.5||Top||17-10||Loss||-105||20 h 35 m||Show|
New England at Philadelphia 4:25 ET
Eagles (+) over Patriots- The Patriots don't lose two in-a-row, especially when coming off of a loss and they always extract revenge after a defeat. Don't believe any it. The Eagles are flying high after wins over the Bills and Bears and Carson Wentz will spoil any revenge. New England's schedule has been laughable only playing one team (Bills) with a wining record and they out-gained the Pats by over 150 yards. Sunday, they will they meet a second winning squad that will give them all that they can handle and more. Pats 5-0 ATS after bye and 15-7 ATS after a ATS loss. Philly is 6-1 ATS following ATS win. Underdog in 6-1 in the last 7 meetings. Pats are 1-4 ATS in the last meetings and fall here. Take the EAGLES!

Minnesota at Iowa 4:00 ET
Hawkeyes (-) over Golden Gophers- A balanced attack has been the key for Minnesota's surprising 9-0 start as they run for 195 yards and pass for 237 yards per game while their defense has allowed just 310 per contest. They out-gained every opponent expect Penn State in Saturday's win their first over a ranked team in 15 tries. Now, they face an Iowa team that lost to Wisconsin 24-22 and they come up an underdog against an unranked team. Seems bogus to me...take IOWA!

Georgia at Auburn 3:30 ET
Tigers (+) over Bulldogs- Since their improbable loss to South Carolina the Bulldogs have won three straight while allowing just 17 points with a pair of shutouts and have blacked three opponents this season. Auburn has two loses both to ranked teams LSU and Florida but has an offense that averages 32.7 points and 425 yards per game. The Tigers have totaled just under 500 yards three times this season and will be able to penetrate Georgia's defense. Georgia is 5-1 ATS and in those matchup they the better team being favored by -13, -10, -12 and -15.5 in the last seven seasons. But, this time around the Tigers get it done. Take AUBURN!

Virginia Tech at Georgia Tech 3:30 ET
Yellow Jackets (+) over Hokies- This is one of those game where I will convince myself that nI have the right side because bot is this an ugly side...until it wins. Georgia Tech has had a difficult adjustment as former triple-option coach Paul Johnson retired and the Yellow Jackets were troubled during the transition. The have a balanced offense now but each side land and air only average 150 yards a game each. Opening the season losers against Minnesota 34-10 and Clemson 52-14 the imagine of ineptness and futility was felt. But, those are two pretty dare good clubs and after starting 0-5 ATS they are 2-1-1 ATS with a road win at Miami-Fl. This is the best justification I've got, the underdog is 12-1 ATS in the last 13 meetings. Nah, they are playing much better coming off of a 375 yard offensive performance while The Hokies are off of 3-straight big-game covers defeating Wake Forest 36-17 as a 3-point dog last week. They should come out flat of fall apart in the second half or both! Take GEORGIA TECH!

Seattle at San Francisco 8:15 ET
49ers (-) over Seahawks- This NFC West matchup will pit two of the three top Super Bowl contenders (Green Bay) from the conference. For San Francisco this is new territory while the Seahawks with favored MVP candidate Russell Wilson leading the way has been contending for the Super Bowl berth since his arrival. Both clubs average nearly 400 yards on offense with the Niners 171 yards rushing leading the league. But, for the most part the biggest difference is on defense where San Francisco allows only 241 yard per start while the Seattle surrenders 381 yards per contest. The home team is 5-2 in the last seven meetings. Take SAN FRANCISCO!

Kansas City at Tennessee 1:00 ET
Titans (+) over Chiefs- The Chiefs with Patrick Mahomes in charge may have the best offense in the NFL but if he isn't at full strength they can be just ordinary. No longer do teams believe they are invulnerable and the three losses attest to that. Now, speaking of teams with quarterback issues the Titans are right up there with the lot of bad teams. But, the Tennessee defense can get up and surprise us every once and again. The Titans are 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings and Kansas City is 1-4 ATS on the road in their last five against teams with a losing record. Take TENNESSEE!

N.Y.Giants at N.Y. Jets 1:00 ET
Jets (+) over Giants- Officially this has been labeled the Gotham Sewer Bowl as it most likely will be professional football at its worst! There is no doubt in my mind that the betting public will be on the Giants...they always are. NYC is a Giants/Yankees town as opposed to Mets/Jets, every other pro team is an also fan in the fans eye even when they are the better team. Now, I in no way would say that the Jets are a better team then the Giants as they average 157 yards passing and only 66 yards rushing (that's pretty bad). The media had been unbridled with praise for the Giants Dave (Turnover Machine) Jones while Sam 'What am I doing here' Darnold saw ghost chasing the ball in the end zone as he froze on the Dolphins safety last week. None the less, I have been and always will be a Giants fan and season ticket holder and I say...LET”S GO JETS!

Blue Devils (+) over Fighting Irish- The Blue Devils visions of upper tier bowl acceptance has take a blow with three straight losses so after a 4-1 start they are even. Notre Dame's dreams were dashed early by Georgia and reaffirmed by Michigan two weeks ago. Duke has had two weeks to get ready for the biggest home crowd they will see this season while the Irish will just play it out with little motivation. This game is more meaningful for the Devils...Take DUKE!

Louisiana State at Alabama 3:30 ET
Crimson Tide (-) over Tigers- Golly, I can't wait to see the colors, the bands, the pageantry and everything makes this match-up 'special' on a college campus. This is the SEC Game of the Year between pair of 8-0 undefeated teams LSU and Alabama. There is a history here and it's not good for the Tigers. Alabama has won the last eight meetings and although the Tigers have probably played better competition with three win over Top-10 teams while the Tide haven't faced a ranked opponent until LSU. The Tigers would grade out as the better team but they have a hurdle in front of them that they have not been able to conquer since Nick Saban was coaching LSU. Tua or not...take ALABAMA!

Baylor at Texas Christian 12:00 ET
Horned Frogs (+) over Bears- Could the undefeated 8-0 #12 Baylor Bears be the Big-12 club that throws a monkey wrench into the FBS doings...nah. Even though the Horned Frogs have lost a pair of quarterbacks in the past two weeks they are still able to sting an unsuspecting foe. TCU has won the last four meetings and most likely will have QB Max Duggan who replaced Alex Delton. I'm a little skittish here as the Horned Frogs have turned this trick already defeating Texas as a home dog...Frogs bark...Take TEXAS CHRISTIAN!

San Diego at Oakland 8:20 ET
Raiders (+) over Chargers- Kudos to the Chargers for improvising us with another 'Highest-Rated' 5$Megabucks win over the Packers completely dominating play. Oakland was a winner as well but was very lucky in the process as the Lion's ineptitude in crucial monument handed the victory to the Raiders. So what...a winner is a winner in this league and if you can't or don't execute too bad for you. Oakland won again and there is a positive attitude with this club that was missing prior to Gruden arrival. Still, not confident that LA has turned the corner...Take OAKLAND!

New England at Baltimore 8:20 ET
Ravens (+) over Patriots- Truly an interesting game with plenty of side plots and storylines. Starting with quarterback comparisons when it is difficult to do because they both Tom Brady and Lamar Jackson have such contrasting styles. Results are probably the best measure and one guy comes in 8-0 with plenty of defensive help and they others resume is still on its opening page. As invulnerable as New England appears there is one obvious Achilles Heel...they are on their third place kicker of the season cutting both Mike Nugent for Nick Folk. The dog is 5-2-1 ATS in the last eight meetings but the Ravens are 0-6 ATS in their last six home games...that streak ends tonight. Take BALTIMORE!

Green Bay at L.A. Chargers 4:25 ET
Chargers (+) over Packers- Okay, I'm trying to keep calm until game time but this has to the 'Major Shocker' of the day. Green Bay comes rolling into Los Angeles winning their last four scoring 73 points in their last two taking down a pair of AFC West teams in Oakland and Kansas City. This week they have drawn the regrouping Chargers who had just 231 yards total offense in their 17-16 win at Chicago. Series history buries LA as the Packers have won the last seven and 10-11 meetings overall. With little fan sport the home Chargers are just 1-3 SU and 0-3-1 ATS as 'hosts.' LA (HA) has made a change at OC and maybe Los Angeles will score some goals in this diminutive soccer stadium. Take the CHARGERS!

Indianapolis at Pittsburgh 1:00 ET
Steelers over Colts- I'm getting a lot of resistance with this one as some are afraid of Pittsburgh's offensive question mark quarterback notwithstanding as all-purpose runner/receiver James Conner some an important part of the Steelers offense will be missing. Yeah, I get it, but 'teams' win games and although they looked like crap Monday night against Miami, that they are closer than you might think. The home team is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings and the underdog is 5-2 in the last seven meetings and the Steelers could be both by game time. Take PITTSBURGH!

Kansas State at Kansas 3:30 ET
Jayhawks (+) over Wildcats- The is a great spot for the Jayhawks as they catch State off of their biggest upset win in over a decade as they just physically out-manned Oklahoma. That was no flute these Wildcats can play, but can they sustain that intensity four another full four quarters? Kansas won in upset style themselves and at 3-5 they are much improved with Carter Stanley throwing 19 TDs already. It's not that the Wildcats can't win easy, under most circumstances they probably would, but it's just the time and don't forgot the place. Take KANSAS!

Georgia Southern and Appalachian State 8:00 ET
Eagles (+) over Mountaineers- There is no doubt No 20 Appalachian State is the best of the also-rans (see 2018 Central Florida) and are meetings the team that knocked them out of the Top-25 last year. So, yes they have revenge on their minds but they are facing one of the best running games in the nation. Georgia Southern has the 7th ranked rushing offense (26 per) led by Junior running backs J.D. King and Wesley Kennedy III and have six players that have run for at least 100 in a game. Take GEORGIA SOUTHERN!

Green Bay at Kansas City 8:20 ET
Chiefs (+) over Packers- Okay, no Mahomes, so now what? So, now the Chiefs are expected to play defense to make up for the MLP's absence. I last impression I have of the Chiefs is them shutting down the hapless Broncos 30-6 last Thursday which really doesn't say that much. But, it was still an impressive performance as they did dominate. I am surprised that the Packers are this big a favorite on the road as Matt Moore is getting very little regard. Still, the Chiefs have the No. 3 offense and plenty of other explosive weapons. Take KANSAS CITY!

Notre Dame at Michigan 7:30 ET
Wolverines (+) over Fighting Irish- I remember watching this matchup last year sitting with friends at my favorite place having faded Michigan as the rest of the free world and some of the oppressed bet on the Wolverines. Notre Dame of course won easy, rushed out to a quick 14-0 and then 21-3 leads before the half. The Irish won easy over the Wolverines and everyone started to sour on Jim Harbaugh who is 1-12 against Top-10 teams. Notre dame has lost seven of their last eight visits to Ann Arbor where the Wolverines have won their last 12. Now, the same people that had Michigan last season and lost all have Notre Dame. Take MICHIGAN!

Penn State at Michigan State 3:30 ET
Spartans (+) over Nittany Lions- Penn State jumped on Michigan last week and then had to hang on needing a Wolverine end zone dropped pass tp seal the win. The Lions were out-gained by 134 yards and had the ball just 22 minutes on offense. That plays into Michigan State's hands as their thing is defense although they have struggled the past two weeks against Ohio State and Wisconsin. The Spartans have won five of the past six meetings and always seem to 'get-up' for Penn State. Vegas has been 'hit' hard by the 'Sharps' with the 'smart' money coming on the Spartans. I agree with them...take MICHIGAN STATE!

Horned Frogs (+) over Longhorns- Does this 'line' look right to you? It doesn't to me. Here's No. 15 Texas who totaled 638 yards against Kansas last week led by quarterback Sam Ehlinger who had 399 yards passing and four touchdowns. TCU club that has dropped their last two and doesn't appear at 3-3 to be of the same caliber of recent seasons has to rely on their defense which have allowed a national-low 76 first downs. The Longhorns won last year's battle 31-16 but had lost the previous four meetings with the Frogs going 4-1 ATS. Take TEXAS CHRISTIAN!

New England at New York Jets 8:15 ET
Patriots (-) over Jets- The last time these two met New England was a 20-point home favorite and won 30-14 for the non-cover victory. At that time the Jets were starting 3rd string quarterback Luke Falk who since has been released and tonight they will have Sam Darnold back for the second straight week after missing three games because of the 'Kissing Disease.' His counterpart Tom Brady has eight TD passes and no interceptions in the last three meetings against the Jets but they haven't fared well against the points at New York. The Pats are 1-5 ATS in their last six visits to Gotham and the Jets are 7-1-1 ATS in their last nine at home games against teams with winning road records. But there is one factor that I have to mention...the Jets have been out-gained in EVERY game. Take NEW ENGLAND!

Cardinals (+) over Giants- Doesn't this 'price' look cheap to you...it does to me. Both clubs are starting rookie quarterbacks with Daniel Jones replacing Eli Manning for New York and Kyler Murray the No. 1 overall draft pick leading Arizona to a 2-3-1 record whereas New York is 2-2 behind Jones. The Giants are expecting to return of both running back Saquon Barkley and tight end Evan Engram. The Cardinals have won their last two and unlike New York are scoring points. Jones is just at 52% completions and the Jints have lost their last two meetings against Arizona. Take CARDINALS!

Falcons (+) over Rams- After a 3-0 start the Rams have dropped their last three and were dismal on offense in last weeks loss to the 49ers. Atlanta has on the other hand been putrid this entire season as Dan Quinn as been searching to want-ads. The Falcons are 1-5 ATS despite have the No. 2 passing game in the NFL with Matt Ryan going 30-36 for 356 yards and four touchdowns in last weeks loss but leading the league in TD passes with 15. Atlanta has won four straight against the Rams and with LA's injury list growing they will struggle here as the Falcons fly high. Take ATLANTA!

BYU has dropped three straight and are claiming that they haven't quit on the season and the Broncos are the perfect opponent. This non-conference game is a step down for the Broncos who are just 2-5 in their last seven against Independents while BYU is 6-1 ATS versus the Mountain West and 9-3 ATS following a straight up loss.

Utes (-) over Sun Devils- Doesn't this line appear to be a little on the high side? It does to me! These clubs have Pac-12 mirror record of each other both at 5-1 straight up and 2-1 in conference play. Arizona State behind freshman quarterback Jayden Daniels average 403 yards on offense including 268 through the air but will be opposed by Tyler Huntley who is 3rd nationally for completion percentage (.756) and 5th on passing efficiency (187.6). Utes tailback Zack Moss is back after getting an injured shoulder on September 20 and needs just 55 yards to become Utah's all-time rushing leader. Utah ranks 25th in total offense and 10th defense. They are one of only six teams in that category. Take UTAH!

New Orleans at Jacksonville 1:00 ET
Jaguars over Saints- So, now Teddy Bridgewater is the flavor of the month leading New Orleans to three straight wins while replacing the injured Drew Brees. But, wins are for the most part a 'team' thing and if you check the Saints offense it hasn't been all the great. New Orleans averages just 348 yards offense per game and this week they will be without running back Alvin Kamara and he has had five 100 yard games in the last seven. Of corse the Jaguars will rally around QB Gardner Minshew and Leonard Fournette control the ball and get the win. Take JACKSONVILLE!

Browns (+) over Seahawks- We all saw it...the Browns totally dominated by the 49ers 31-3 with Cleveland getting out-gained by 266 yards and a 8-22-and 100 yards performance out of Baker Mayfield. Meanwhile it's the same-old, same-old with Seattle winning the close ones especially on the road where they are 2-0 both SU and ATS this season winning 3-of-4 by two or less points. That plays well into this week match-up where the Browns are 0-2 both SU and ATS at home this season, are they that bad...I don't think so. At home where hosts are 3-0-2 in the last five meetings the Browns get a much needed win. Take CLEVELAND!

Penn State at Iowa 7:30 ET
Hawkeyes (+) over Nittany Lions- At the beginning of the week there was no question that I wanted Iowa here after their horrid performance in their 10-3 loss to Michigan on National TV. The problem is that the 'price' has shrunk before of 'Sharp action' on the Hawkeyes and it has lost some value. The Hawkeyes had a total of minus-10 yards against the Wolverines last week as QB Nate Stanley had his worst career game getting sacked eight times and throwing three interceptions. Penn State is averaging 500 yards per game while Iowa after last weeks performance is at just 255 yards per game. It's no matter the home team is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings. Take IOWA!

Alabama at Texas A&M 3:30 ET
Aggies (+) over Crimson Tide- This is Alabama's 6th game of the year and they have been favored in every one by -33.5,-54.5, -25-5, -36.5, and -37.5 and they have made good twice but only once in their last four contests. It seems that the oddsmakers are giving the Aggies a 'puncher's chance' with the line dipping to 16.5 at one point. For those that are Tide 'backers' this price might appear to be a gift. But, beware things are not always what they seem. Alabama averages 555 yards per game and the Aggies just 427 but are better on defense allowing 300 yards per games while the Crimson are allowing 326 per contest and have surrendered more than 450 yards twice against Mississippi and South Carolina. This will play closer than most believe. Take TEXAS A&M!

Michigan State at Wisconsin 3:30 ET
Spartans (+) over Badgers- They may not be ranked in the Top-5 but No. 8 Wisconsin to me has been the most impressive of all. The Badgers are allowing just 182 total yards per game and have surrendered only 29 points (5.8 ave per game) on the year. But, probably the most impressive of all is the they have not trailed at anytime this season. Michigan State we know has been built on defense for years and only give up 300 total yards per game. The Spartans had 'covered' four straight in the series until last year's 30-6 home beatdown. Note that the underdog is 5-0 ATS in the last five meetings. Take MICHIGAN STATE!

Appalachian State at UL Lafayette 8:00 ET
Ragin' Cajuns over Mountaineers- Both of these clubs enter this fray on four game winning streaks with the Cajun's have lost their opener to Mississippi State 38-28 (+19) and are 5-0 ATS. Appalachian State has posted a road victory over North Carolina and most likely will be the public's choice here. But, Lafayette averages 540 yards offensively including a balanced attack of 314 yards rushing and 226 threw the air and are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games overall. Take LAFAYETTE!

Chicago vs. Oakland (London) 1:00 ET
Raiders (+) over Bears- Ugly upon ugly is the best way to describe both these clubs. This game in London is just part of the trek that will have the Raiders on the road until the first weekend in November a length of six weeks. I'm sure that the media will make a big deal of Chicago's Khalil Mack getting to play against his former club for the first time since being traded last September. The Bears lost QB Mitch Trubiskey to a shoulder injury and that can only help the Bears tame offense with Chase Daniels now leading the charge. Oakland behind John Gruden will keep this close enough to possible stealing a win at the end. Take the RAIDERS!

Central Florida and Cincinnati 8:00 ET
Bearcats (+) over Knights- No. 18 Central Florida has won 19 straight AAC contests but should be put to the challenge Friday night against a powerful Bearcats squad that put up 525 yards last week improving to 3-1 with their lone loss to Ohio State. The Knights rebounded from their 35-34 loss at Pittsburgh by stomping hapless Connecticut 56-21. This is a spot Cincinnati has let me down in the past but I believe that they have moved passed that and I forgive them. Take the BEARCATS!

Cincinnati at Pittsburgh 8:15 ET
Bengals (+) over Steelers- Most likely one of these team will be 0-4 before the end of the night and it would seem more than likely it would be the Bengals. Pittsburgh has dominated this series for decades and is 18-7-1 ATS in the last 26 meetings as hosts to Cincinnati. The Bengals seem to have turned have things around now that Marvin Lewis is gone from the coaching ranks although they have yet to win a game. Mason Rudolph who passed for a meager 174 yards in Pittsburgh's loss at the Niners last week will be pitted against the Bengals Andy Dalton who is second in passing yards (979) entering the week. The fact is that the Steelers surrender 442. yards per game and produce only 269 yards per game on offense. Take CINCINNATI!

Minnesota at Chicago 4:25 ET
Bears (-) over Vikings- Okay, we all saw it...we saw the Bears claw the defenseless Redskins on Monday but we also go another look at Mitchell Trubisky and he just doesn't cut it.On the other side of the fence Minnesota also has a struggling quarterback in Kirk Cousins who is the model of inconsistency even with the NFL's leading rusher in Dalvin Cook. But, Chicago has a defense led by Khail Mack and they will shut down the Vikings here. Take CHICAGO!

Lions (+) over Chiefs- A pair of undefeated clubs clash in Detroit where the 2-0-1 Lions and 3-0 Chiefs meet with reigning MVP Patrick Mahomes who has passed for over 350 yards in his first three games without an interception. I have shouted as much as I could about what a horrible job coach Matt Patricia is doing as another failed Belichick disciple. But, not so fast as Matt Stafford is being to look like he can finally defeat a team with a winning record. Take KANSAS CITY!

Ohio State at Nebraska 7:30 ET
Cornhuskers (+) over Buckeyes- Oh...how could I, I mean, I had 'against' the Cornhuskers all lined up last week and failed to post Illinois who covers easy and now I come back ON Nebraska. Ohio State has been impressive averaging 53.5 points per game while allowing just nine per contest. Nebraska who was 0-3 against ranked opponents last season was almost caught in a look-ahead last week as they cams-from-behind in a 42-38 win as a two-touchdown favorite. Although the Buckeyes are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings the Cornhuskers are 6-1-1 in their last eight conference games. Take NEBRASKA!

Bulldogs (+) over Tigers- Auburn has emerged as an SEC power that must be reckoned with as their 4-0 both Su and ATS domination of opponents. The 3-1 Bulldogs are off of three straight home games including last weeks 28-13 win over Kentucky. The Tigers are 6-0 ATS in their last six home games and Mississippi State is 1-5 ATS in their last six road games. The Bulldogs are 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings and the under is 6-1 in the last seven as well and have the SEC's leading rusher in Kyle Hill. War Eagles Bo Nix has gotten more credit than he deserves...take BULLDOGS!

L.A. Rams at Cleveland 8:20 ET
Browns (+) over Rams- The storyline of course in Baker Mayfield and his crew of underachievers (to date) is what to make of what we've seen so far. Weakness in the offensive and defense for the Browns but for the Rams it's a different story. It looks like Todd Gurley II is back but LA has fallen short of last years offensive pace (33 pts). This is a big game for Cleveland's 'Dog Pound' and they might bite! Take CLEVELAND!

New Orleans at Seattle 4:25 ET
Saints (+) over Seahawks- New Orleans without question is my A-Play of the week even without Drew Brees. There is something about a good team that loses a key player that makes them bond and perform better as a unit. (see Brewers without Yelich) Now, understanding the QB position is a unique position but teams win championships not individuals. Seahawks 2-0 on road return home and disappoint. Take NEW ORLEANS!

Oregon at Stanford 7:00 ET
Cardinals (+) over Ducks-After what 'we' saw last week out of the Cardinal against Central Florida I don't blame you for turning away here as that was the second straight blow-out loss for Stanford. In the meantime, Oregon has rebounded from their heart breaking loss to Auburn and have out-scored their last two opponents 112-9 defeating Nevada and Montana. The Ducks are coming off of a pair wins against soft opponents and now play a conference foe in need. Stanford is 1705 ATS after a straight-up loss and 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings. Take STANFORD!

Tennessee at Jacksonville 8:20 ET
Jaguars (+) over Titans- I don't see it, at least not what the general opinion of this matchup between a pair of AFC South rivals. Tennessee is a slight road favorite and I guess that is because of the Jaguars having to go with rookie quarterback Gardner Minshew and their impressive road win at Cleveland or maybe because they are 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings and 6-1 in the last seven meetings. Jacksonville troubles seem to be more than injuries but player dissatisfaction. But, the Titans are 1-4 ATS vs. the NFC South and 4-12-1 ATS their last 17 road games while the home team is 6-2-1 ATS in the last seven meetings. Take JACKSONVILLE!

Green Wave (-) over Cougars- Okay, don't you think that Houston looks good here? I do, too good. The Cougars are returning QB D' Eriq King a senior that has set passing records as an underclassman and defeated Tulane 48-17 at home last season. The Green Wave have been an underdog against Houston every year for over two decades and now they are favored...something's up. Take TULANE!

Cleveland at New York Jets 8:15 ET
Jets (+) over Browns- After game the NFL opening week it appears that the Cleveland Browns have been reading their own press clipping as they were not ready to play on the field as they were completely dominated by Tennessee. Cleveland committed 18 penalties last week as their focus was elsewhere. . This week the Browns travel to New York as Odell Beckham Jr. returns to MetLife Stadium since being traded by the Giants and he says that he will wear his watch (in order to get his timing down I guess) and I'm interested in how the NFL will handle the issue. Regardless, New York will have a healthy Le'Veon Bell and will have Trevor Siemian who was 13-11 as a starter for Denver in 2016-17. It was the Jets that the Browns defeated last season when Baker Mayfield got his first start and ended a 19-game winless streak. This time take the J-E-T-S!

Philadelphia at Atlanta 8:20 ET
Falcons (+) over Eagles- Oh my goodness, I believe I see a 'set-up' here. After posting Minnesota (Power Play winner) over the Falcons last week as the 'dirty-birds' were grounded by the Vikings. They were never really in it and put up a pair of meaningless scores at the end. Philadelphia put on a huge comeback after spotting the Redskins an 18 point lead to win outright but they allowed a score in the final moments to give up the back door cover. The Eagles might be grounded here as another pair of receivers are gimping around and their quarterbacks isn't in tune yet. Home team is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings and the Falcons are 4-0 the last four years in game-2. Take ATLANTA!

Dallas at Washington 1:00 ET
Redskins (+) over Cowboys- Do you really think Dak Prescott is as good as he looked against the Giants...of course not, but with that kind of time to throw and receivers that wide open even Tim Tebow would look good. Of course the return of Zeke Elliott three days before the game and then preform the way he did says to us how important pre-season is for skilled players. Washington was in position to pull off the first major upset of the season but folded when it counted most as the Eagles prevailed 32-27 as the Skins (+10) got the money. Although Dallas is 4-1 ATS in their last five trips to DC the underdog is 27-11 ATS in this hard hitting rivalry. Take WASHINGTON!

Stanford at Central Florida 3:30 ET
Cardinals (+) over Panthers- It's been great playing 'on and off' the Cardinals as they have won as our 'Megabucks' opening week Best Bet and then fell to USC (our ('Money Game' winner). So, I feel very comfortable backing them here. There has been a way-over reaction to both these clubs with Central Florida's No. 16 status inflated by the level of competition they play. Now, I'm not saying that they don't deserve it but like Gonzaga in NCAAB they don't play enough good competition. Stanford Quarterback K.J. Costello returns after concussion protocol while the Panthers are deciding between three quality starters in Brandon Wimbush (ND Transfer), Darriel Mack, Jr. (last years back-up) or freshman Dillon Gabriel but no matter, it will be K.J. that will be the difference. Take STANFORD!

Tampa Bay at Carolina 8:20 ET
Buccaneers (+) over Panthers- Both of these NFC South clubs seem to be heading south opening 0-1 with one being even less impressive than the other staring 0-1 ATS. The headliners here at one time had to be Cam Newton for Carolina and Jamis Winston for the Buccaneers, but times change and the best player on the field (by far) will be Christian McCaffrey who had 208 yard form scrimmage in a losing cause against the Rams. Tampa Bay's performance against San Francisco wasn't as bad as it appeared as the out-gained the Niners both on the ground and through the air. They just need Winston to stay under control and no turn the ball over. Moving toward each other this one should be close with the Buccaneers having a chance to pull it out in the end. Add that the road team is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings and the underdog is 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings. Take TAMPA BAY!

Jaguars (+) over Chiefs- Although the 'books' are heavy on the Chiefs to win the Super Bowl and heavy with the 'public' money so far in this encounter but aware the 'Sharps' in Las Vegas keep taking the hook (+3.5) and it will be tough to get more than +3. Straight-up if that's the way you want me to play it maybe the remnants of hurricane 'Missed-Ya' will leave the field soggy and muddy and the Kansas City passing game will suffer. Okay, well, if not Jacksonville will run the ball right at them and play strong pressure defense. Either way or another the Jags get it done. Take JACKSONVILLE!

L.S.U. at Texas 7:30 ET
Longhorns (+) over Tigers- 'I am shocked,' no not that there's gambling going on...but that everyone and I mean just about anyone not in Texas is running with cash in both fists to back Louisiana State. I liked the Longhorns from the git-go and with the price rising so quickly and continuously I only expect some buy back before game time. LSU is 6-2 ATS on the road and that might account for some of the support and they are 4-0-1 against the Big-12 in their last five meetings. But, the Tigers are a team that gets better as the season progresses as they are just 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 games in September. Texas is 6-2 ATS in their last eight non-conference games and 4-1-1 ATS in their last six games at home. Take the LONGHORNS!

Sooners over Cougars- Following a pair of Heisman Trophy winners at Oklahoma Jalen Hurts can be expected to fill their shoes in a much different way. Hurts will beat you more with his legs than his arm and one thing Oklahoma has always been able to do is run the ball. With Hurts in the backfield the Sooners ground attack will be that be much more prolific. The last time these two met Houston got the ring with a 33-23 victory to opening the 2016 season. Oklahoma as a measure of revenge on their minds. Take the SOONERS!

Cougars (+) over Utes- Utah as you might expect is the favorite to win the Big-12 but first must start the season by getting by their intra-state rival Brigham Young. This is the 94th meeting of the 'Holy War' and the Utes have won the last eight and are 10-5 ATS series run. Utah has 14 starters returning while BYU has 17 players returning including their quarterback, 3 receivers and top running back. The Cougars are 23-11 ATS as a dog and 7-2 ATS as an underdog in this series also the dog is 16-5 ATS in the last 21 meetings and the Cougars are 13-3 SU in home openers. Take BRIGHAM YOUNG!

Los Angels Rams vs New England 6:30 ET
Rams (+) over Patriots- I had to get this out sooner then later because I don't want to be distracted by any 'October Surprise' so to speak. 'We' have been riding the Patriots throughout the playoffs against the Chargers and two weeks ago again at Kansas City. In both instances the 'public' was against New England and now their attitude has changed and 'they' are overwhelmingly on Tom Brady and crew. The speak I keep hearing is how Los Angeles shown't even be here or that they don't belong here. Well, guess what they are here and the Saints couldn't hold the lead with two minutes to go, so boo on them. The Rams come into this fray 4-0 SU and ATS in their last four while the Patriots have scored 78 in the past two playoff games and any team that scores 70 or more points in two playoff games as a favorite is 0-6 ATS. In Las Vegas the 'sharps' are buying the Rams every time the game moves to +3 as they are jumping on what they consider value as LA did open -1.5. I can't help it and I believe this is a really strong play for the most part because people don't believe the Rams belong. Take LOS ANGELES!

L.A. Rams at New Orleans 3:05 ET
Saints (-) over Rams- A pair of great offensive teams with the exact same record (14-3) will be playing in 'perfect' conditions but one of them with have a huge advantage, and that is a raucous fan base. The Saints at home have already beaten L.A. 45-35 the first week in November. In that contest New Orleans went off as an underdog (+1.5) and now the oddsmakers believe that they are 5-points better (by-the-line) now than then. I could talk of the experience advantage at quarterback and combine that with the Saints having won their last seven home playoff games six with Brees at the helm alone with the home team going 7-0 in the last seven meetings. One last thing to pee on the Rams, LA is 1-4-1 ATS in their last six against teams with winning records. Take NEW ORLEANS!
