Hope you’re ready to enjoy Christmas and hope you paid for those gifts with FREEEE MONEY! When you’re hot, you’re hot. 4-3 last week as I took TB under this past monday night to push me over .500 for the week. Guys, I haven’t had a losing week in 7 weeks. Just saying. We’re getting to the fantasy championship/players getting rested/ time of year so the number of plays will get smaller and by next week, it’s going to be only a slight few. But I have a few in mind so here we go:
The wife beater currently known as Ezekiel Elliot is back for the Cowgirls and Dallas is holding onto a microcosm of hope to make the playoffs. In comes the rape victim from week 15 known as the Seattle Seahawks. And who had the Rams as the pick of the week last week? YOU’RE WELCOME. Jesus, I put out more than your moms. 2 weeks, 2 mom jokes. How much confidence do you have in Seattle? The correct answer is very little. Usually, the Seahawks destroy in the month of December but it looks like the Legion of Boom went bust. That defense has been beaten up more than Jim J Bullock’s asshole. Wow, what a deep cut. Pulling out an F list celebrity from the 80’s in this column, check. Dallas is 7-2 ATS vs Sea and 5-2 ATS vs Seattle. More stats? Sure. Seattle is 2-5-1 of late and 3-7-1 on the road. Not very awe inspiring. And now, a Montell Jordan reference for you. “The party’s hype and the number’s right. Drinking 40’s here on the west side.”
Take Dallas -5 cause this is how we do it.
The Buffalo Bills are smack in the middle of the playoffs, despite the Nathan Peterman experiment. Doesn’t that sound like the name of a shitty emo band? I know, ALL EMO IS SHITTY, KEVIN. The Bills go into Foxboro where the Pats really haven’t felt like the PATS this year. They got insanely lucky (including me having under 54 last week) with that win. The Bills NEED this game and the Pats haven’t blown anyone out in awhile (3 weeks). The Bills A) got beat by 20 and will most definitely B) use this as a revenge game for the Gronkowski cheap shot. 11.5 is just too many damn points so take the team who needs the game pretty bad. And oh yeah, more fun facts. The Bills hit the under 5/7 on the road, 4/6 under in NE. And the Pats of late are also not putting up points as the under has hit 4/5. Hogan is doubtful and Burkhead is out. And oh yeah, Bellichik is 47% ATS when laying double digits.
So let’s double down and take the Bills +11.5 and the under 47.
Pittsburgh lost a potential dream crusher last week. Pittsburgh sucks mastodon scrotum on the road. Pittsburgh of late is 1-5 ATS. I know, Houston isn’t much better, 2-5 ATS of late. But 9 is too many and Pittsburgh plays to the level of their opponent. And oh yeah, the best WR in football is out for the game. If you don’t know who that is or disagree with me, you shouldn’t be reading this column.
Take the Texans +9 and cross your fingers.
The Saints fucked me not once but twice. Not nice for a team named after a celestial figure. The Saints couldn’t cover and bury Bryce Petty? And then Mark Ingram, in clock killing mode, breaks off a long touchdown to burn me on the under. Shame on me for laying 16.5. The Saints lost to the Falcons 3 weeks ago (another one that I called. Time for me to get my own show, goddamnit!) and I think they have revenge on their mind. The Saints also want to get that division sewn up because they know KG has them 6/1 to win the NFC so let’s not monkey around. Saints have 9 wins by 10 points or more. Atlanta in a short week BARELY beat the Bucs on (had the under so yep, taking a bow again.) Falcons D has given up 7 TDs in the last 3 weeks and only one pick. Matt Ryan also not doing that much this year.
The Saints come marching in all over the Falcons, -5.
Tampa Bay almost tied it up with a 56 yd FG attempt on monday night. Thank god that kick fell like an Italian man, a foot or 2 short. Cause my under would have been cooked. Here’s a fun fact: Tampa is 13-4 as an over when they’re a double digit underdog. TB has a TON of injuries on defense and even if they were healthy, they weren’t that got. But TB has hit 7/8 unders on the road. Carolina has hit the over 5/5. Panthers also 5/6 over at home. I like Carolina to win and if it can get to under 10, I’ll jump on it. But for now, it’s just going to be…
Carolina over 46.5
Not a full lock but I’m highly convinced about this game. One garbage fan base flies across country to visit the biggest garbage fan base. Raiders in Philly and Philly looking for that 1 seed. Foles crushed it in his season debut and he better crush it against the Black and Silver because I have him in my fantasy championship. BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! I don’t see the Raiders giving 2 shits about this game after they lost the way they did. They’re flying cross country and playing Christmas night? The Eagles may roll early and then sit Foles. But I don’t see the Raiders showing up so let’s end this Christmas night with.
Philly under 47
