We have reached the end of the line for this NFL regular season. If you have been a loyal follower or came across us in the last month, we Thank You and hope you have been able to cash in.
Last week the gambling gods finally said – Enough Already – and we only hit one two-team teaser. That was our worst showing in 11 weeks for NFL picks on teasers, leaving us at still sensational 37-7 recently and 44-12 for the entire season.
When looking at the NFL odds weekly, being able to extrapolate a profit is the first goal and if you can do better than normal, you are limited company. This year we did that and quite a bit more in teasers and more importantly, we hope you learned a new betting skill going forward.
Here are this week’s selections.
Detroit blew their chance to keep playoff hopes alive with a dull performance in Cincinnati last week. That means no postseason for the Lions, however, a victory over depleted Green Bay is more than possible. Taking this game down where we just need Detroit to emerge victorious is not too much to ask when we have a Matthew Stafford vs. Brent Hundley quarterback matchup. Also, the Lions are a perfect 14-0 at home in the second half of the season on teasers.
In the NFC South, the stakes are high for both Carolina and Atlanta. The Falcons have to win to return to playoffs. The Panthers are now a five-seed and they could move up depending on other outcomes with a victory. Though both teams had high scoring games this season, the fact is the average score for each team is Under 44 total points. Both defenses are more than capable of limiting their opponent and here is one more reason for taking this teaser from 45 to 51 points. On a teaser line, when a team (Carolina) has won three or more straight times, has a winning record and is playing another winning team in the second half of the season, they are 112-21 UNDER for teaser totals.
