As is the case in sports betting and life, sometimes you are the windshield and other times you are the bug. Last week I was the bug, as the betting gods put out a stop sign on my total picks here.
I was wiped out and that will happen. Nevertheless, for NFL picks, if you told me I would 23-15-1 ATS going into Week 15, I would take that every single season.
When breaking down the NFL odds, here are this week’s Sunday selections.
After an all-out effort on Monday night against Pittsburgh and still coming up short, Cincinnati fans probably wanted a refund after the Bengals were a no-show in ugly home whipping by Chicago. With no playoffs and Marvin Lewis probably done as the Cincinnati head coach, the Bengals are not likely to find many points against the NFL’s No.3 scoring defense. Plus, Minnesota is even better at home, ranked first and conceding just 13.8 PPG. Coming off a loss to Carolina and having Green Bay on deck, I am not sure we will see Minnesota’s A-Game. With Cincy 13-3 UNDER off an upset loss by 10 points or more as a home favorite, let’s back the lower score.
