As we come to the close of action in NFL Week 15, we ended-up a bit below .500 on the year at 21-23-1 after going 1-2 in this past Saturday’s college football picks.
Recapping our last three selections, Cincinnati came through with a 38-31 victory over Houston as a 6.5-point favorite in the AAC finale for both teams, but we missed the boat on yet another close call for Florida State in a 37-35 victory against Georgia Tech as a 3.5-point favorite. We were also on the wrong end of Wisconsin’s unexpected no-show in a 59-0 drubbing at the hands of Ohio State.
We will now turn our attention to the pros for the final few weeks of the NFL regular season by releasing three of our top picks for Gaming Today in each Sunday’s games. We are 10-4 so far this season in our top NFL plays, which means $100 bettors using our Unit Betting System are up $3,400 on the year.
Here are this week’s selections:
Take GREEN BAY -7 over Buffalo: The Packers have clearly established themselves as the class of the NFC this season. Green Bay knows if it can lock-up home field advantage throughout the playoffs, it will have a huge edge over any team it faces in the postseason run to Super Bowl XLIX. You have to give credit to Buffalo for hanging around so long in the AFC playoff race, but the Bills are simply out of their league in this matchup even with the fact they are playing at home.
Take MINNESOTA +7.5 over Detroit: The Vikings bring a straight-up 4-2 record in their last six games and a profitable 6-1 ATS run in their last seven contests. Minnesota has won 19 of the last 25 meetings in this series SU and it is 4-2 ATS in its last six games against the Lions. At 9-4 SU a loss this Sunday would put a dent in Detroit’s wild card plans. The Lions are notorious for making things hard on themselves with so much on the line.
Take DENVER -3.5 over San Diego: Denver hit a few bumps in the road in early November and, ever since that point, the betting public has turned its attention to New England as the darling of the AFC. The Chargers continue to win the games they are supposed to, but against the upper echelon of the AFC, still come-up short.
