4 units on Baltimore +1 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

A running game and a defense and getting points at home in the playoffs. Ohhhh baby! Next to Dallas, Baltimore owns the best defense playing this weekend. The Ravens play well a...

4 units on Washington +7 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Oakland +4.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Cleveland +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

21

Tennessee at Houston
Sunday 12/21 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Houston +6 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on New York +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Minnesota +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Los Angeles +4.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Oakland +6.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Chicago +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Atlanta +1 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Denver -3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Both teams are motivated in this one but I give the nod to Denver. Despite being outplayed, Kansas City won the first contest in a game that triggered Denver’s collapse af...

New York at Buffalo
Sunday 12/07 04:15 PM Eastern

4 units on Buffalo -3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Sunday 12/07 04:05 PM Eastern

4 units on Arizona +10 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Oakland +5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Tampa Bay +1.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Atlanta +6.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Sunday 11/16 04:15 PM Eastern

4 units on Green Bay +4 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Sunday 11/16 04:15 PM Eastern

4 units on Oakland +4.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on New York +6 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Arizona +6 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Jacksonville at Tennessee
Sunday 11/16 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Tennessee -10 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Cincinnati +6 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Los Angeles +5.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Jacksonville +6 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

7-1 against 1-7. Should be a blowout, right? While it’s hard to put my finger (paw) on why, I have a feeling it won’t be. Indianapolis really couldn’t be playi...

Seattle at Washington
Sunday 11/09 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Seattle -3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Last week I picked the Lions to upset the Raiders largely because Oakland was in the midst of major turmoil. The team was losing and losing bad. And worse yet, the players had l...

4 units on Green Bay +4.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Seattle -4.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Seattle was surprised last week in a loss to Cincinnati but that doesn’t take away from the strength of this team. Pittsburgh on the other hand is really struggling on off...

4 units on New York +2.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Minnesota -5.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Cincinnati +2 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Denver +3.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Sunday 10/19 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on St. Louis -3.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on San Francisco +3.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Seattle looked great through their first three games, outscoring opponents 30-11. But how good are they really? Well, in those three games, they were +12 in turnovers (nuts!) an...

Baltimore at Arizona
Sunday 10/12 04:15 PM Eastern

4 units on Arizona +5.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Baltimore can run but they can’t pass. They are first in rushing offense and dead last in heaving the pigskin. Luckily for the Cardinals, they know what’s coming and...

Buffalo at New York
Sunday 10/12 04:15 PM Eastern

4 units on New York +2.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Winless teams off a bye – gotta love ‘em! New York qualifies for several very high-percentage trends favoring dogs post-bye and a few other variables. After a week o...

Pittsburgh at Denver
Sunday 10/12 04:15 PM Eastern

4 units on Denver -6.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Tough loss for Denver last week. How will they respond? Unlike Tampa Bay (who knows their loss is on them and will drag them down this week), Denver believes they should have wo...

4 units on New York +2.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Boy, the Giants looked bad last week, didn’t they. Yes they did! However, they are a much better team than the one that showed up against Miami. In that game, they committ...

Philadelphia at Dallas
Sunday 10/12 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Dallas -1.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

This line has moved from a pick’em to Dallas being favored by 1.5. The way Dallas has been playing, they should be favored by a field goal or more. This is a huge game for...

Tampa Bay at Washington
Sunday 10/12 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Washington +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Amazingly tough loss for Tampa and they won’t recover so quickly. After a short week in which they have got to be questioning themselves, they need to go on the road to fa...

Sunday 10/05 04:15 PM Eastern

4 units on Washington +5.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

This Skins team has done pretty well this year. They nearly beat a solid Giants team and they did beat New England, who happened to have trounced Philadelphia 31-10 three weeks ...

Los Angeles at Jacksonville
Sunday 10/05 04:05 PM Eastern

4 units on Los Angeles +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Two winless teams square off so who cares? Well, players and coaches of these two teams, for one. And, we care since we have an underdog winner here. Everyone wants to praise th...

Sunday 10/05 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Carolina -6.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

I remember the first matchup between these two teams last year well (I picked Carolina). The Panthers were up 24-20 with less than 1:00 minute to go as +4.5 point underdog. New ...

4 units on Indianapolis -1.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Apparently last year’s playoff trouncing hasn’t stuck in the heads of the Colts. They are off to their best start in years. Edgerrin James may not play Sunday due to...

Atlanta at Carolina
Sunday 09/28 04:15 PM Eastern

4 units on Atlanta +6 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

We’re getting value with this line. Carolina certainly had a big win against Tampa Bay a couple of weeks ago. But, their offense has been mediocre and this Falcons team sc...

4 units on Kansas City -3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Jacksonville at Houston
Sunday 09/28 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Houston +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Jacksonville starting QB Mark Brunell is hurting. If he can’t go, it will be the rookie Byron Leftwich. It’ hard enough for a rookie, but Leftwich started camp late....

Philadelphia at Buffalo
Sunday 09/28 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Buffalo -3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Drew Bledsoe had a bad game last week. I don’t expect that to happen again. Buffalo has a lot to play for in an effort to keep up with the Joneses (Miami and New England) ...

Buffalo at Miami
Sunday 09/21 08:30 PM Eastern

4 units on Buffalo +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

This Bills squad is excellent. Drew Bledsoe is one of the best QBs in the league and because of him, the Bills are averaging 34.5 ppg. He not only puts up the numbers, but he fi...

4 units on Minnesota -3.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Over the past dozen years in week 3, visiting teams off a win have covered the spread 75% of the time when playing home teams off a loss. Minnesota is dominating opponents so fa...

Chicago at Minnesota
Sunday 09/14 08:30 PM Eastern

4 units on Chicago +8 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Contrarian play. Chicago gets hammered 49-7 last week while Minnesota pulls of the big upset in Lambeau. It seems like Minnesota will walk in this one. However, Minnesota played...

Cleveland at Baltimore
Sunday 09/14 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Cleveland +2.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Baltimore can’t be feeling too good right now. For a team who’s strong point is defense, giving up 34 in your opener has got to raise doubts in your mind. Granted, C...

4 units on Detroit +6.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

One of these two teams gave up 30 points last game and lost as a five point favorite. The other team scored 42 points and won. Which one do you think should be favored this week...

4 units on San Francisco +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Atlanta at Dallas
Sunday 09/07 04:15 PM Eastern

4 units on Atlanta +2 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

This one’s a bit tough. Atlanta was a playoff team last year while Dallas sucked. Things have changed a bit, which explains why Atlanta is getting points in this one. Mike...

Arizona at Detroit
Sunday 09/07 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Arizona +4 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Houston at Miami
Sunday 09/07 01:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Houston +14 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Fourteen points? That’s a lot but it almost seems reasonable. Houston is coming off a winless preseason. They were (mostly) horrible last year. They are on the road agains...

4 units on Jacksonville +3.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on San Francisco +1.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

San Francisco's on a role this preaseason (3-0 SU and ATS) and I don't expect it to stop. Maybe they're trying to atone for last year's playoff disappointment. Maybe Dennis Eric...

Atlanta at Cleveland
Thursday 08/28 08:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Cleveland -3.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

4 units on Baltimore -4.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

It's nice when the team you are going against announces they won't play their starting QB - at all. NY will sit Kerry Collins and start unimpressive Jessie Palmer and relieve hi...

4 units on Washington +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

After two dismal games, the Skins bounced back last week with a big win against Baltimore, led by Patrick Ramsey's good showing. Low-scoring road dogs tend to do well in subsequ...

4 units on Arizona +6 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Two teams with different attitudes this game. Minnesota won as a dog last week. They're feeling pretty good. After two straight wins, Arizona lost as a favorite. They aren't hap...

Carolina at Green Bay
Saturday 08/23 08:00 PM Eastern

4 units on Carolina +4 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)

Carolina's defense is just scary-good. Yes, this is the preseason but defensive starters usually play longer than offensive starters. Carolina has won and covered its first two ...
