To make up for last week we’re going to be adding a few extra picks this week!
Here are your picks of the week!
Rams pick of the Week: Over (54.5)* Rams v. Lions (-110). The Rams should win this game and as the team gets ready for the playoffs I expect to see a lot scoring. The Lions are fighting for their playoff lives so they are going to need to put points up. The 54.5 point line may raise before Sunday.
Thursday Night Pick of the Week: Saints (-7) at Cowboys (-110). The Saints are onto something special here and while Dallas has been playing better the Saints and their HOF QB should win this game by at least a TD.
NFC Pick of the Week: Panthers (-3) at Buccaneers (-110). The Carolina Panthers are still in the playoff hunt but they need to beat Tampa to realistically stay alive. Tampa is a team with a bunch of ups and downs throughout the season. Cam and McCaffery have a dynamic duo all season along. If this pair of offensive studs want to be a threat in the playoffs they need to take care of business in Tampa Bay this Sunday.
AFC Pick of the Week: Chargers (+3.5) at Steelers (-115). Chargers and Steelers are the next best in the AFC and this is likely to be a very good game. I’m taking the points and trusting Rivers to hold it together at the end of the game. Big Ben has been knocked around a lot lately, which I see continuing against this strong Chargers defense. Teasing this line to around 10 makes it even more tempting!
Non-NFL Pick of the Week: Golden State (+9.5) v. Toronto (-114). There are not many opporuntites to vet on the Warriors getting points. 9.5 points is a lot for one of the best teams ever constructed. They may be beat up, they may not even win, but they will battle. Warriors to cover if not win.
Bonus Bet: European Game of the Weekend: Sunderland (+110) at Walsall – FA Cup (Saturday Dec. 1st, 2018 10:00 AM EST). If anyone is interested in some FA Cup soccer we have a game for you! This match-up is a rematch of a game played last week. In that match Sunderland, who played with only 10 men for most of the game, came back from a 0-2 deficit in order to end the match in a tie! This team has the momentum and is looking for a very important win. Sunderland should take an outright victory this weekend. Walsall has struggled against Sunderland over the past year and that should continue this weekend.
Bonus Bet of the Week! Game Parlay: Rams Money Line AND Over (+123). In order to win the game parlay the Rams must win and go over 54.5 points. The positive payout (+123) makes this a our Bonus Bet of the Week!
