Over 41.5 in Pittsburgh/Cleveland:
Consensus across 3 sources.
Less Leveon = more Antonio and Juju. Pace of play will lead to more scores. And I don’t think the running game will suffer with Conner, he’s more than serviceable. On top of that, if the Browns are still the Browns, the Steelers could score at will and even if they’re improved then I see this game cashing the over easily, as both Defenses were ranked by Pro Football Focus accordingly: Pitt 25th in the league, Cleveland 27th. Bless ‘em.
Bengals +2.5 or ML @ Colts
Indy’s line is not nearly as improved as it should be after what’s happened to Luck. Couple that with his rust and then throw the Bengals’ stout DL in the mix and I don’t see this ending well for Nerd Luck and the Colts. The Bengals can air it out and the Colts secondary has not made enough improvements to dig itself out of the bottom tier coverage units in the league.
Additionally, this is a big time consensus pick for Wise Guys and I’m shocked this hasn’t moved more to be honest. Get on it before Sunday.
LA Rams -4 vs Raiders
This is yet another no-conflict consensus pick across our sources. One of which had the adjusted predictive model coming in at Rams -8!! The Rams are full pedal to the metal right now and are surely ready to play with all of their new toys on both sides of the ball, whether its at the expense of ruining Chucky’s Christmas morning or not. Get it while its hotttt.
Giants +3 vs Jaguars
Two sources agreed on Giants +3 at home and I will go ahead and say that I do too. Look, I get it. It’s the Giants. But I believe in Saquon and OBJ will be able to carry this team. Totally whack on D but look who is on the opposite side of the field – Blake “Bortle Service” Bortles. I think this line is off and anticipated this being closer to a pick ’em than a home dog. With that being said, I am not taking it stright up but current have it in a 3 game 7-point teaser with the Falcons (already won) and Packers.
Go get get money!
