Last week the DTR Sportsbook did well again and went 2 for 3 on the football bets and was correct the college football winning all 3 football bets. Unfortunately, the Rams pick went over in the lost but that’s the way the cookie crumbles sometimes.
Here are your picks of the week!
Rams pick of the Week: Over (49.5)* Rams v. Seahawks (-110). This line is fairly low for a Rams game, especially for an emotional Rams Seahawks game. The teams played earlier in the season and put up a combine 64 points in a close Rams win. I think this line may rise before game day which is also an incentive to take the line at 49.5.
NFC Pick of the Week: Saints (-5) at Bengals (-110). Saints are one of the best teams in the league and in order to stay that way they need to take care of teams like the Bengals. I’m also not a major believer in this Cincinnati team and while I think it may be close I think Saints winning by at least a TD is a good play. Bengals, while they may be good, are not a premier team in the league.
AFC Pick of the Week: Patriots (-6.5) at Titans (-110). Two weeks of betting against the mess that is the Bills has been productive and I was very tempted to do it again against the J-E-T-S who have shown signs of life throughout the season. However, I have to take Bill & Tom visiting their old friend Mike Vrabel. While Matt Patricia was able to beat Bill & Tom earlier in the season the Pats are now in form and ready to go. They want to prove they are still the best and they’re not going to let a middle of the pack team like the Titans beat them. Pats win by at least a TD.
Non-NFL Pick of the Week: Florida (-6) South Carolina v. Florida (-108): Florida is due for a comeback after a disappointing few weeks. Florida is the better team here and after a let-down against Missouri they should bounce back in this classic SEC matchup.
