Pro Bowl 2018 Pick and Prediction

The 2018 Pro Bowl is this Sunday, and will be seen on ESPN. The game will be played in Orlando Florida for the second straight season, with Camping World Stadium as the host of the game. The rosters were set just before Christmas, with both teams needing to make changes to their roster. Guys that are playing in the Super Bowl will not play in the Pro Bowl, and typically anyone with a remote chance of being hurt will not play in the Pro Bowl. The toughest part for oddsmakers in a game that means absolutely nothing is to deal with the rosters, and who will and won’t play. Typically the final odds are not released for the Pro Bowl until the morning of the game. Right now, we have the NFC at -2 over the AFC, but that is subject to change as well. Let’s take a look at the 2018 Pro Bowl rosters, and then give our pick and prediction.

BET ON THE PRO BOWL AT PADDY POWER

AFC

In the AFC – the Pittsburgh Steelers had 10 players selected to the Pro Bowl. That was the most, with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Los Angeles Chargers and Tennessee Titans coming up next with 6. Out of the NFC – the Los Angeles Rams had the most, with 8, while Seattle, Minnesota and New Orleans came in with 7. Interestingly, the New England Patriots had 4 and the Philadelphia Eagles 6, but those 10 guys will be sitting out for the Super Bowl.

Team AFC was of course supposed to have Tom Brady as it’s quarterback. Well, of course he is playing for the bigger prize, and instead Ben Roethlisberger, Alex Smith and Derek Carr will get the nod. Phillip Rivers was voted, but will not play in the game.

The rest of the offensive skill players for Team AFC include Le’Veon Bell, LeSean McCoy and Kareem Hunt for the running back position. Those were the three starters chosen, with no replacements. The receiving core saw DeAndre Hopkins and A.J. Green back out, which led Keenan Allen, Jarvis Landry and T.Y. Hilton to fill out the foursome with Antonio Brown. The tight ends are both replacements as Rob Gronkowski and Travis Kelce will neither one play. Instead, Delanie Walker of the Titans and Jack Doyle of the Colts will get action. Tyreke Hill will serve as the specialist return man for the AFC, while Chris Boswell of the Steelers will get the field goal attempts.

NFC

The NFC’s quarterback situation is similar. Carson Wentz was supposed to be the starter, but his injury has him on the sideline. Instead, Drew Brees should get the start for his head coach Sean Payton, while Russell Wilson and Jared Goff serve as backups.

The rest of the skill offensive players for the NFC include Todd Gurley, a guy that many think will win the regular season MVP. Him, along with the Saints duo of Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram have the NFC running game looking awfully good. Adam Thielen gets his first Pro Bowl appearance, and he will team with Michael Thomas, Davante Adams and Dou Baldwin. Julio Jones and Larry Fitzgerald were voted, but will not compete. At the tight end – the same situation as the AFC happened where Zach Ertz and Jimmy Graham will not play, therefore Jason Witten and Kyle Rudolph get the nod. The return man for the NFC is Rams Pharoh Cooper, Graham Gano gets a chance to kick the field goals for Team NFC.

NFC Downs AFC

In the end – the game means very little, to nothing. It’s a glorified scrimmage, with the best players in the league going at it. Over the last couple years, the defenses have gotten better, and tried harder. The NFC is looking to snap a three game losing streak in the Pro Bowl. With us looking at the rosters, we are siding with the NFC. It appears to be a more complete roster, and a roster of guys that we think will give a better effort and want to win the game. When we are betting this game – we are taking Todd Gurley as the Pro Bowl MVP, with the NFC winning the game. Bet the NFC to win the 2018 Pro Bowl.  Good luck with your US sports betting.

NFL: Find out Which Two Teams will Play in Super Bowl 52

The National Football League is coming to an end. We are two weeks away from Super Bowl 52. As you likely remember from all the years watching the Super Bowl – next week the teams and players will be off. It’s preparation for the Super Bowl. The week does see the Pro Bowl, which features the best players in the game. The Pro Bowl is rarely bet on, because of so many players choosing not to play. Last week we saw four really interesting football games with the Eagles and the Patriots winning on Saturday, while the Jaguars and Vikings came away with the win on Sunday. Now, we have the Final Four, with a pair of games on Sunday. Let’s look at both games:

BET ON THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE AT PADDY POWER

Jacksonville Jaguars +10 over New England Patriots 

The Jacksonville Jaguars are the fairy tale of this NFL postseason, but they do not feel as if they are any worse off than the other three remaining teams. The Jaguars, led by head coach Doug Marrone have seen tremendous defense all season long. Remember, this is the same Jaguars team that intercepted Ben Roethlisberger five times during the regular season win over Pittsburgh. The Jaguars allowed several late scores last week, but overall, this defense is not to be taken lightly. The offense will need to manage the football, and take care of it. Jacksonville’s offense made the Steelers defense look silly last week with 45 points. Leonard Fournette was the big story  with 109 yards and 3 touchdowns. T.J. Yeldon also got into the end zone for the Jaguars, and was the top receiver as well. The receiving core is a group of guys that are looking to break out in the league. The Jaguars lost Allen Robinson before the season started, and Allen Hurns has been banged up all season.

The New England Patriots had all the drama coming into the Titans game about the team not getting along, etc. It does not matter with this group – as they are looking for two more wins and another Super Bowl title. The Patriots fell behind 7-0 to the Titans last week, and then scored the next 35 points. Tom Brady finished the game with 254 yards and 2 touchdowns, of course not throwing an interception. New England saw James White get into the end zone twice in the game, finishing with 11 rushing yards and 29 receiving yards. The Patriots have several guys to plug and play at the running back position, with Dion Lewis and Brandon Bolden getting in on the party. Rob Gronkowski last week caught 6 passes for 81 yards, and the Jaguars are going to have to have quite the plan for him.

Look for the Patriots to win this game, but the Jacksonville Jaguars are going to compete. If Blake Bortles takes care of the football, and does not turn it over, they are going to have a chance to win the game late. We do not expect them to win the game, but covering the spread should be done. Take the Jaguars +10 over the Patriots.

Minnesota Vikings -3 over Philadelphia Eagles

The Minnesota Vikings won on a miracle throw from Case Keenum to Stefon Diggs as the time expired last week over the Saints. While they may have gotten lucky, they have also been good this season. The Vikings won the NFC North with 13 wins in the regular season. In that game, Keenum threw for more than 315 yards, with that pass to Diggs being his only touchdown pass. Latavius Murray and Jerrick McKinnon both got into the end zone on the ground. The Vikings are a well rounded offensive team with guys like Adam Thielen, who are giving 100% every time. The defense for Minnesota has been overlooked all season, and should be ready to slow down the run game of Jay Ajayi and force the Eagles to pass the football.

Once Carson Wentz went down, many gave the Philadelphia Eagles no chance to get to the Super Bowl. Despite being the top seed, the Eagles were underdogs at home against Atlanta, and are underdogs in this game as well. The Eagles won last week with tremendous defense and the ability to run the football. Look for more of that from Philadelphia this week. Jay Ajayi got a heavy work load of 15 carries a week ago, and we would not be surprised if the Eagles give him nearly 20 this week. Alshon Jeffrey is the top receiver for the Eagles, as he finished with 61 yards a week ago.

The Eagles are going to want to run the football most of the game, but if they fall behind they are going to have a tough time coming back. Look for the balance of Minnesota to keep them off their game, and allow them to win on the road. The Vikings win this game over the Eagles 24-17.

There is a look at the AFC Championship and NFC Championship. These are four of the best teams in the league, there is no doubt about it. The Jacksonville Jaguars are the underdog of the four remaining teams, but their defense is probably the toughest. They will have a tough test taking down the defending champion Patriots, but it should be fun to find out what happens. Best of luck with all your National Football League betting. Enjoy the games, and we will see you back with our Super Bowl 52 picks soon enough! Good luck with your US sports betting.

NFL Divisional Round – Previews and Predictions For all 4 Games

Have you enjoyed the National Football League and the postseason so far? In the wildcard round – the first winner was the Tennessee Titans coming from behind and beating the Kansas City Chiefs on the road. The second winner was another road winner as the defending NFC Champion Atlanta Falcons went to Los Angeles and beat the Rams. On Sunday – both home teams came away with wins. The Jacksonville Jaguars held off the Buffalo Bills in the first game, and then in the nightcap, the Saints beat the Panthers in a NFC South battle. Now we move to the divisional round. There are two games Saturday and two Sunday. That will lead to the NFC and AFC title game next week. After a week off, the first Sunday in February will be Super Bowl 52 from Minneapolis. Let’s take a look at the NFL Picks for the Divisional Round:

BET ON THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE AT PADDY POWER

Atlanta Falcons -3 over Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles are the top seed in the NFC, but they are underdog when they host the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday. The Falcons are the defending NFC Champions, but the 6th seed in the postseason. The Falcons worked the Los Angeles Rams over in the wildcard round. Matt Ryan needs one more win as a starting quarterback to get to 100 in his career. That’s better than Nick Foles. Foles is in for the injured Carson Wentz. This game comes down to quarterback play. Despite not putting up sexy numbers, Matt Ryan is the guy to take in this game. Do not be surprised if the Falcons get back to the Super Bowl. This is a hungry team, with some great talent. The Falcons win on the road on Saturday.

New England Patriots -13 over Tennessee Titans

The New England Patriots are looking to get back to the Super Bowl once again. The Patriots came from behind to beat the Falcons last season. Tom Brady is 40 years old and still playing some of his best football. He has Rob Gronkowski, who is going to be awfully tough to defend. They are taking on a Titans team that had a tough time reaching the postseason, and needed a little of a miracle to take down Kansas City in the opening round. Look for New England to keep an eye on Derrick Henry, and also limit Marcus Mariota’s ability to run the football. Mariota will have to throw the football, and that’s not a good ingredient for the Titans. Look for the Patriots to win this game easily over the Titans.

Pittsburgh Steelers -7 over Jacksonville Jaguars

Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers have revenge on their minds. The Steelers only dropped three games all season, and one of them came in embarrassing style to the Jaguars. Jacksonville’s defense was all over the place, and picked off five passes of Big Ben. Now, Antonio Brown looks to come back, and that gives Pittsburgh all sorts of weapons to use. The Jaguars are going to have a tough time moving the football on the Pittsburgh defense. Blake Bortles is going to have to use his arm to beat the Steelers. He does not have the receiving weapons, and the Steelers are not going to allow the Jaguars to beat them on the ground. Pittsburgh beats up on the Jaguars, ending a fun Jacksonville story.

New Orleans Saints +4 over Minnesota Vikings 

NFL Bets

Drew Brees, Sean Payton their weapons are on the road at the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings are a team that seem to win with smoke and mirrors this season. The Vikings tied the Eagles for the most wins in the NFC this season. Look for the Saints, who played and beat the Panthers to take advantage of some of the Minnesota rust in this game. Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram were held in check last week. Look for them to run wild in this game, and beat up on the Vikings defense. The Saints are the only underdog to win during the divisional weekend, and if our picks hold true, will host the NFC title game.

There is a look at our NFL Picks for the Divisional Rounds. Best of luck with all your bets for the weekend, and make sure you enjoy the action on the field. We will be back next week with our AFC and NFC title game picks! Good luck with all your  US sports betting.

NFL Wildcard Weekend has Arrived: 4 Pack of Picks Here

The National Football League has reached it’s wildcard round. The wildcard round features four games, and 8 teams. The divisional leaders are taking the weekend off, before they get together next weekend with the winners of these games. It should be a very entertaining weekend of National Football League action. Let’s take a look at our picks for the 2018 NFL Wildcard Round picks:

BET ON THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE AT PADDY POWER

Kansas City Chiefs -8 over Tennessee Titans 

Andy Reid is back in the postseason as the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs. He takes his team into the postseason with Alex Smith at quarterback. Smith was up and down this season, with five wins to start the season. The Chiefs needed a couple big wins late in the season to get back on track and win the AFC West. Kareem Hunt will be the main man on offense for Kansas City, as he led the NFL in rushing yards. They will host the Tennessee Titans, who won in Week 17 and got some help from other NFL teams. The Titans have seen an ineffective Marcus Mariota for too much of the season.  The quarterback had 15 interceptions to just 13 touchdown passes this season. The Titans have turned to Derrick Henry over DeMarco Murray at the running back spot, but both have seen ineffective games. Look for the Chiefs defense to be the key here. The Kansas City Chiefs at home are going to take care of business and win this game over the Titans. Take the Chiefs -8.

Atlanta Falcons +6 over Los Angeles Rams

Sean McVay and the Los Angeles Rams have been one of the big stories of the National Football League season. McVay has a great shot at being the Coach of the Year in the NFL. But, the story is coming to an end here. Matt Ryan against Jared Goff and that’s going to the veteran quarterback. Ryan has been poor for most of the season, but he can turn it on when he needs to. Look for him to use his top target early and often in this game. The Falcons defense will come up with a game plan to slow down Todd Gurley and force Goff into tough spots. In a down season for Matty Ice he still threw 20 touchdowns, and more than 4,000 yards. Him and Julio are going to take down Los Angeles. Take the Falcons on the road at the Rams in the wildcard weekend.

Jacksonville Jaguars -8 over Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills are another team that kind of snuck into the postseason. They will have a tough time moving the football against the Jaguars in this game, especially with LeSean McCoy being beat up. If McCoy cannot play in this game, they are in big time trouble. Look for the Jaguars to give Leonard Fournette a heavy dose of the football, and let the defense do the rest of the work.  Quarterback Blake Bortles has lowered his interceptions this season, with 13 to 21 touchdowns. This is the first start in the postseason for both Blake Bortles and Tyrod Taylor, and neither will be fantastic, but the defense for the Jaguars wins the game. Expect Jacksonville to rudely welcome the Buffalo Bills to town on Sunday. Take the home team by 10+ points in this game.

Carolina Panthers +6 over New Orleans Saints 

Throw the regular season games out the window in this game. These are two pretty good National Football League teams that are hungry to be the next NFC South team to get to the Super Bowl. The Panthers are just two years removed, while it’s been awhile for Sean Payton and his Saints. Cam Newton has a MVP under his belt, and will be better than he was in the recent loss to the Panthers. While Newton’s weapons are not elite status, they are good enough to win a playoff game.  The big key here is Greg Olsen gets back on track. A week ago him and Cam Newton were not on the same page, and the Panthers looked bad. Newton uses his arm and his legs in this game. Look for Carolina to go on the road and beat the Saints, which would set up a second round battle against the Minnesota Vikings.

BET ON THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE AT PADDY POWER

There it is. Those are our favorite National Football League Wildcard round picks. We have gone with the two favorites out of the AFC, and two underdogs to win out of the NFC. There should be some great football action this weekend! Best of luck with all of your National Football League betting, and enjoy the action.

Regular Season Finale in the National Football League

We have reached the final weekend of the National Football League. Week 17 has arrived, and there are several games that could throw around the seedings and teams that are into the postseason. It should be a fun week, with all 32 teams playing on Sunday. After this week – the postseason will begin in the National Football League. Let’s look at our bets for the regular season finale in the National Football:

BET ON THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE AT PADDY POWER

Minnesota Vikings -12 over Chicago Bears

The Minnesota Vikings should be able to name the score over the Chicago Bears. Sure, the Bears are coming off a win, but in the end, Chicago is still a 5 win team. The Vikings need this win to keep the #2 seed in the NFC, and that means home game in the second round, and if the Eagles lose – a home game in the NFC title game. The Vikings quarterback Case Keenum has been absolutely outstanding with 21 touchdowns and 7 interceptions thrown. Look for the Minnesota offense to have their way against the Bears defense in this game, and come away with a blowout home win.

New England Patriots -16 over New York Jets

This should not even be close. Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are at home, and ready to keep their top seed in the AFC. The Patriots would have a first round bye, and then host a game before possibly hosting the AFC title game. The Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is looking to get over 1,100 yards receiving and he has 8 touchdowns on the season. He seems to be in line for a great game against the hurting Jets that are heading home for the season following this game. The Patriots whip the Jets in Foxboro.

Philadelphia Eagles -3 over Dallas Cowboys

Do not be surprised if the Dallas Cowboys come into this game very unmotivated. The Cowboys have been eliminated from postseason play, and Philadelphia, despite who they play are still going to be spirited and want to grab their 14th win of the season. Nick Foles has thrown 5 touchdowns and 1 interception since becoming the starter. Look for a solid outing from the quarterback in the Eagles win. Take Philadelphia at home over the Dallas Cowboys in NFL Week 17.

Atlanta Falcons -4 over Carolina Panthers

NFL Week 2 2017

This is the biggest game on the NFL slate for Week 17. This game has a ton of meaning to it. The Atlanta Falcons are at home and need a win to get into the postseason. Keep in mind – this is the NFC Champions we are talking about. Matt Ryan and Julio Jones do NOT want to be left out. On the other side – Carolina is a rival and would love to keep the Falcons out. Also, if the Panthers win, they could take down the NFC South title. Cam Newton should get a full game under his belt here. In a great game- the team that must win will win. Take the Atlanta Falcons -4 over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

Tennessee Titans -3 over Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars are already in the postseason, and lost an edge last week in the loss to Philadelphia. The Jaguars are going to be playing in the wildcard weekend anyways, not sure there is much motivation there for them. The Tennessee Titans if they want any chance at the postseason must win this game. Look for a hungry Titans team to come away with the win in this game on Sunday as they look to get into the postseason.

San Francisco 49ers +1 over Los Angeles Rams

The Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay has already said that his offensive starters are likely going to sit this game. That means no Jared Goff, no Todd Gurley, and that means trouble for the Rams. They are facing a San Francisco team that has been red hot with four straight wins. Defensively, if the Rams sit starters, they could be in huge trouble in this game. The Rams will still be at home in the wildcard round of the postseason. Look for the 49ers to take down the Rams in this game, and finish with 6 wins on the season.

Seattle Seahawks -9 over Arizona Cardinals 

While there is some pretty good narrative about Bruce Arians final game as head coach and Larry Fitzgerald likely his finale in the league – the Cardinals are out manned and outclassed. Especially if the Seahawks find out that the Atlanta Falcons lose. If the Falcons win, the Seahawks could lay off the gas, as they will be eliminated. But the Seahawks have the better roster and need a win. Take Seattle at home in Week 17.

BET ON WEEK 17 AT PADDY POWER

Best of luck with all your National Football League betting. It’s been a great season of football, and we expect more awesome football action as the regular season comes to a close and the postseason begins. There is a look at our bets from the regular season finale in the National Football League. Enjoy and have a great 2018!

Teams Look to Clinch Playoff Spot in NFL Week 16

The National Football League is down to it’s final two weeks of the regular season. Three teams out of the AFC and 2 out of the NFC have already sealed their spot into the postseason. Many other teams are looking to clinch their spot in Week 16. There are other teams that need to win to stay alive for the postseason. Let’s take a look at some of the best games in the National Football League for Week 16:

BET ON THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE AT PADDY POWER

Carolina Panthers -10 over Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are not a very good team, and now they are coming into this game on a short week. The Buccaneers lost in a tough game on Monday Night Football. They do not have a ton to play for, and Cam Newton and the Panthers need a win to seal their spot. Look for Newton to have a monster game against the poor passing defense of Tampa Bay. Carolina wins this game with a ton of Cam Newton and Christian McCaffrey on Sunday afternoon, and the 2015 NFC Champions are back in the postseason.

Buffalo Bills +12 over New England Patriots

There is no doubt who the better team is in this AFC East battle, but their is one team that is more desperate than the other. LeSean McCoy and the Buffalo Bills are in a three way tie for the final wildcard spot in the AFC. Buffalo is at New England – the team that is the top seed in the AFC right now. Look for McCoy to have a pretty solid game, and keep the Bills into the game. In the end, Tom Brady takes care of business, but not before the Bills cover this spread on Sunday.

New Orleans Saints -5 over Atlanta Falcons

Two teams out of the NFC South that are looking to get into the postseason will get together. Both teams need just one win to get into the playoffs. New Orleans holds a game lead, along with Carolina over the Falcons. Drew Brees and company lost on Thursday Night Football in Atlanta in Week 14. There is no doubt they are thinking revenge in this game. The Saints put a bunch of points on the board against a tired Atlanta defense and win this game going away, leaving the Falcons and Panthers in Week 17 as a huge game.

New York Jets +7 over Los Angeles Chargers

Sure – it’s tough to think that Bryce Petty can actually win a National Football League game – but if they are going to do it – it will be over the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chargers look deflated following their loss to Kansas City in Week 15. Look for the Jets to control the tempo of this game with their ground game. The Jets come away with a massive home upset over the Chargers eliminating them from postseason play. Take the Jets to cover the spread and win this game on Sunday.

Los Angeles Rams -6 over Tennessee Titans

NFL Bets

Both teams could use a win, but with a Rams win, they are in the postseason as the winners of the NFC South. For the Titans – they need a win as they are in the mix for the wildcard. The Bills and Ravens are the other two teams in the mix. The Rams ground game has been fantastic, and Jared Goff is doing what he can to take care of the football for Los Angeles. The Rams are looking forward to the postseason after a long drought. Look for Sean McVay and the Rams to go to Nashville and beat the Titans on Sunday.

Dallas Cowboys -5 over Seattle Seahawks

The Sunday afternoon game of the Week features two teams that are on life support. Both teams have to win their final two games, and get help from other teams in the league. The Cowboys have Ezekiel Elliott back, and they are going against a brutal Seattle defense right now. The Seahawks are banged up, and the run defense is just brutally bad right now. The Cowboys stay alive with a home win over the Seahawks sending Pete Carroll’s crew home.

BET ON WEEK 16 AT PADDY POWER

Oakland Raiders +10 over Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles have the #1 seed in the NFC, but are vulnerable to a loss before the postseason starts. Oakland lost in a crushing game last week. Look for Christmas Night to give Derek Carr and the Raiders an opportunity to come away with a win. Unfortunately, it’s probably going to be too little for the Raiders, as the best they can do is finish 8-8 on the season. But, on Christmas Night the Raiders +10 is a great bet over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Best of luck with all your National Football League betting and Merry Christmas!

HUGE Games Headline Week 15 in the NFL


Week 15 of the National Football League has arrived and with three weeks to go, the games are getting serious for those teams that are looking at getting to the postseason. It’s another nice slate of games, and the point spreads for these games are handicapped pretty accurately. Let’s take a look at our favorite National Football League Week 15 Picks:

BET ON THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE AT PADDY POWER

Denver Broncos -2 over Indianapolis Colts

Both teams are out when it comes to the postseason. The Denver Broncos have been terrible on the road this season. In fact, Denver has yet to win a road game this season. But, Indianapolis is in a terrible rut, and will likely lose out the rest of the season. Look for the strong defense of the Broncos to keep the Colts offense in struggle mode here. The Broncos win the Thursday Night Football game over the Colts, and pick up their 5th win of the season and move the Colts to 3-11.

Detroit Lions -5 over Chicago Bears

This is the first of a doubleheader on Saturday. The Detroit Lions must win out to have any chance at the postseason. Even if they won out – they still are a longshot to reach the postseason. The Lions have been playing close games, but in this game, the Detroit defense gets the best of young Mitch Trubisky and the Chicago offense. The Lions pick up a touchdown win over the Bears at home on Saturday afternoon in Detroit.

Kansas City Chiefs pk over Los Angeles Chargers

The second game of the doubleheader features the Kansas City Chiefs at home against the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chiefs are coming off the much needed win over the Raiders. Los Angeles has been one of the hottest teams in the league. The winner of this game will take the lead with two games to go in the AFC West. The home team is where the bet needs to go here. The point spread is a pick’em for this one, and we are going with Kansas City at home.

Carolina Panthers -3 over Green Bay Packers

Whether Aaron Rodgers plays in this game or not, does not matter. The Carolina Panthers are going to roll over the Green Bay Packers at home in this game. The Panthers are searching for their 10th win of the season, and the offense is going. Look for Cam Newton to have a MVP type game here, and take down the shaky Green Bay defense. This win pretty much gives the Panthers a playoff spot, and the loss sends the Packers away for the postseason. Take Carolina -3 at home.

Seattle Seahawks -2 over Los Angeles Rams

The Los Angeles Rams have a single game lead in the NFC West over the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks beat the Rams in the first meeting, which means if they win this game, they hold the tiebreaker over Los Angeles. A win for the Rams would put them two games up with two games to play. This is a massive game, because the loser is still going to have to fight for the wildcard in the NFC. Look for the 12th man in Seattle to get the job done and pick up win #9. Take Seattle at home.

BET ON WEEK 15 AT PADDY POWER

New England Patriots -2 over Pittsburgh Steelers

This game is at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, and the Steelers come in with the best record in all of the National Football League. The Steelers in their last two games had to come from behind to win. Pittsburgh cannot afford to fall behind in this game, as Tom Brady and the Patriots are going to be ready to get some revenge . The revenge does not come from Pittsburgh, but the Monday Night Football loss to the Dolphins in Miami. Look for New England to win this game on the road by a field goal or more.

Oakland Raiders +3 over Dallas Cowboys

The loss for the Raiders against the Chiefs hurt their chances, but they are not dead yet out of the AFC West. The Raiders are in a must win situation on Sunday Night Football against another desperate team. The Dallas Cowboys also have to win out to have a chance in the NFC. Look for Oakland to get Cooper and Crabtree going against the Dallas defense. The Raiders win this game at home.

There is a look at the National Football League Week 15 picks. Best of luck with all your  US sports betting. and we are excited about the action on the field, and will enjoy the three days of following the National Football League!

Week 14 In The NFL Brings Some HUGE Games

Another week is here full of National Football League action. Week 13 went much like we thought it would with some blowouts, along with some excellent excitement. Time to turn the calendar to the second week of December and get ready for some great Week 14 action. For some it’s do or die to get into the postseason, for others it’s just solidifying their spot, and for others it matters for their draft spot, and that’s it. It’s time to take a look at the NFL Week 14 Picks.

Atlanta Falcons +2 over New Orleans Saints

Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons are in a must win situation at home on Thursday Night Football. The Falcons cannot afford to fall to 7-6 in a tough NFC. Look for Ryan and Julio Jones to take care of business and shred the young, inexperienced secondary of the New Orleans Saints. It’s a short week, and it will show with the defense of the Saints. Take the Falcons to win this game at home.

BET ON WEEK 14 AT PADDY POWER

Carolina Panthers +4 over Minnesota Vikings 

Another week – another bet against the Minnesota Vikings. If you are not keeping track – this is too many bets against the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings are only turning into the best team in the National Football League. But, Week 14 seems like a rough sled for the Minnesota Vikings. Look for Cam Newton to get after the Vikings a little bit and not only cover the spread as the underdog, but come away with a much needed win over Minnesota. Take the Panthers at home on Sunday.

Cincinnati Bengals -6 over Chicago Bears

Dumpster Fire warning. These two teams stink, and both head coaches are going to get fired at the end of the season – if not before. Marvin Lewis and the Cincinnati Bengals blew a chance to remain in the race and lost to the Steelers. The Bears are not even competitive right now. There is a lot of talk about how banged up the Bengals are – and it’s true, but look for the players on the field to bounce back with a road win. That’s how bad Chicago is. Take the Bengals in Chicago.

Green Bay Packers -3 over Cleveland Browns

Stop it. The Cleveland Browns are not going to win a game all season. That’s reality, but it’s pathetic reality. This is probably the best chance Cleveland has left. The Packers could use another win with Brett Hundley behind center to stay in the race. Look for Green Bay to take care of the football on offense, and take the football away on defense. The Packers go to Cleveland and give the Browns their 13th loss of the 2017 season.

Dallas Cowboys -5 over New York Giants

What a massive win for the Dallas Cowboys last week over the Washington Redskins. Now, the Cowboys feel they have a chance. The Cowboys will get Zeke Elliott back soon, and they are fighting for a wildcard spot. The Cowboys cannot afford to lose another game, and this should be one they have no problem with. The only thing is – no Ben McAdoo, and you all know the narrative about playing for a new coach. Regardless, the talent level is too far apart with a ton of momentum on one side. Take the Cowboys.

Los Angeles Chargers -6 over Washington Redskins

Don’t look now  – but a win here and the Los Angeles Chargers are 7-6 heading into their final three games of the season. Phillip Rivers is doing just enough to lead the offense, and this is a much improved defense. The Chargers with a win would also keep pace at the top of the AFC West. Look for Rivers to have another nice game, and hand the ball off to Melvin Gordon late to seal the deal. The Chargers down the Redskins in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Los Angeles Rams -2 over Philadelphia Eagles

NFL Bets

We saw some chinks in the armor of the Philadelphia Eagles. Now it’s time for Sean McVay and the Los Angeles Rams to expose them. Jared Goff against Carson Wentz. This is a great game, but the Rams are the winner here. Los Angeles needs to stay ahead of Seattle heading into their battle later in the season. Look for Todd Gurley to have a solid game here and lead Los Angeles to their 10th win of the season.

There you have it. Those are our favorite Week 14 Picks. Best of luck with all your National Football League betting, and we hope you have a great day at the sportsbook, and a great weekend watching the action on the field! Enjoy and good luck with all your  US sports betting.

NFL Week 13: Big Playoff Implications On the Line

The National Football League moves to Week 13 of the season. It’s amazing we have seen 12 weeks come and go already. The playoff picture is starting to round into shape, but still a few questions out there. Most of the games on tap for Sunday have some kind of playoff implication to it. Let’s take a look at the best NFL Games to bet on for Week 13 of the season.

BET ON WEEK 13 AT PADDY POWER

 

Atlanta Falcons -3 over Minnesota Vikings

The Atlanta Falcons are playing some of the best football in the league, but are running up against an even hotter team right now. This game is in Atlanta, and Matt Ryan and Julio Jones have found their groove. Atlanta is the more desperate team right now, as the Vikings basically have the NFC North locked up. Look for the Falcons to get on the board early, and keep that lead with their defense. The Falcons beat the Vikings by a touchdowns in Week 13.

Detroit Lions +3 over Baltimore Ravens

This game means a ton. The Detroit Lions are 6-5 and a game back of the NFC Wildcard spot, while the Baltimore Ravens are 6-5, and tied for a wildcard spot. The Lions and Ravens are neither one going to win the division, but both teams can get to the postseason. The passing game of Detroit against the defense of Baltimore will be the key to this game. Matthew Stafford is coming off that ankle injury in the loss on Thanksgiving. The narrative will be that defense wins this game, but our pick is the Detroit Lions to pass to a win in Baltimore on Sunday.

Indianapolis Colts +10 over Jacksonville Jaguars

In the AFC South – the Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars are getting together. The Colts have been competitive lately, but do not have enough fire power to win many games. This is going to be another case. Leonard Fournette is due for a big game, but the lack of passing game for Jacksonville is a major red flag. In a pretty ugly, defensive game the Jaguars win the game, which they need – but Indianapolis keeps the game within 10. Take the Colts over the Jaguars on Sunday.

New York Jets +3 over Kansas City Chiefs

The New York Jets are just pesky enough to beat a team that needs a win. The Jets with Robby Anderson as a legitimate deep threat are going to be the next team to upset the Kansas City Chiefs. After starting red hot, a loss in this game would push the Chiefs to .500 on the season. The Los Angeles Chargers, and even the Oakland Raiders are making a push in the division. The Chiefs cannot move the ball right now, and Andy Reid is coming under fire. The Jets get the job done and upset the Chiefs on Sunday.

New Orleans Saints -4 over Carolina Panthers

Two powers in the NFC South will get together. The Saints and Panthers are tied for the divisional lead, with the Falcons a game behind them. Look for the two headed monster of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara at home to beat the Panthers. Cam Newton has been up and down, with much more ups than downs as of late, but look for New Orleans to keep him off balance in this game, which leads to the Saints 9th win of the season.

Seattle Seahawks +5 over Philadelphia Eagles

The Sunday Night Football game features the Seattle Seahawks hosting the Philadelphia Eagles. Maybe the narrative is old and expired from this version of the Seattle Seahawks, but going into Seattle in November and winning is a tough task. The Eagles are the best team in the NFL, and have been passing the football all over the field on each and every opponent they play this season. But, Seattle needs a win, and needs it badly. If Pete Carroll’s team is going to get to the postseason, this is a game they need to win. Look for Seattle to man up with replacements on defense, and the offense carried by Russell Wilson to not only cover the underdog spread, but win this game over the Eagles. Philadelphia is due for a down game and the Seahawks take advantage of it.

That’s a look at the best Week 13 NFL Betting games. Best of luck with your betting, and we look forward to seeing you all back next week for Week 14 action, and all the US sports betting.

Thanksgiving Games Featured in NFL Week 12 Action

The National Football League has turned the page to Week 12 of the season. Typically, we would see the Thursday Night Football game on the schedule, but with Thanksgiving this week – we get treated to a trio of games in the National Football League. Those three games headline the schedule for Week 12 of the season, but do not stand alone. Let’s take a look at the National Football League schedule for Week 12, and give a few of our favorite picks of the Week!

BET ON WEEK 12 AT PADDY POWER

Detroit Lions +3 over Minnesota Vikings 

The Detroit Lions can get right back into the NFC North race with a win in this game. Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions great passing offense gets a chance to battle the tough Minnesota defense. The Vikings have allowed just 172 points, which is the fewest in the NFC. This should be a great battle, and despite the injuries for Minnesota – they are faring well with the second best record in the NFC. Look for Stafford and the passing offense to get after it and torch the Minnesota defense. The Lions get their 7th win of the season and win on Thanksgiving Day over the Vikings.

Los Angeles Chargers pick’em over Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys just have too many injuries. It’s odd to think about it – but the Los Angeles Chargers have a better chance of reaching the postseason than the Dallas Cowboys. The Chargers at 4-6 on the season are in the dumpster fire known as the AFC. They have a chance to reach the postseason, at just a game back. Look for the Chargers to continue scoring points, after dumping 52 on the Buffalo Bills. The Cowboys are going to lose their third straight game and basically be eliminated from a chance to get to the postseason. The Chargers score 30+ points in this game and down the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day!

Washington Redskins -7 over New York Giants

Sure – the New York Giants won last week – but was it more about the Giants being good or the Chiefs being bad? Regardless – the Giants pulled the upset of the season, downing the Kansas City Chiefs. Now, New York will look to all but eliminate the Washington Redskins on Thanksgiving Night. The problem is – the Redskins have done enough damage to themselves, with a blown lead and loss to the Saints last weekend. But, the Redskins are going to bounce back. The New York Giants cannot keep up with the Redskins on the offensive end in this game. Look for a big game from Kirk Cousins as the Redskins win their 5th of the season on Thanksgiving Night!

Carolina Panthers -5 over New York Jets

On Sunday – an intriguing game as the Carolina Panthers are hot right now. They have won three straight games, and are looking to keep pace or catch the New Orleans Saints in the NFC South. This has a huge game for Cam Newton written all over it. The Jets are at home, but their defense has not been known as a defense to shut down a good offense. Carolina has been a pretty good offense more than not, and they are going to be well rested coming off their bye week. Look for the Panthers to get by the Jets, and just enough to cover the spread. Carolina Panthers beat the New York Jets on Sunday.

Philadelphia Eagles -13 over Chicago Bears 

We have the best team in the National Football League going up against one of the worst teams in the National Football League. Turn out the lights – this party is over. If this game was in Chicago, the Bears may be able to stick around – but in Philadelphia – Mitch Trubisky and the Bears are dead ducks. The Eagles are lighting up the scoreboard against any and every team they play. Look for that to not be any different against John Fox and his Bears. On Sunday – the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Chicago Bears by likely 3 touchdowns or more.

Pittsburgh Steelers -14 over Green Bay Packers

This was probably circled on the schedule at the beginning of the season as one of the best games of the season. Both teams were probably projected to be fighting for a divisional championship, and maybe heading for Super Bowl rematch. But – then Aaron Rodgers got hurt. The Green Bay Packers are all but dead. Brett Hundley and the Packers offense is unable to move the ball, and now they get a really good Steelers defense, and a Steelers offense that is starting to hit their stride. This has the potential of getting pretty ugly in Pittsburgh on Sunday Night Football. Look for another Antonio Brown big game and the Steelers win big over the Packers.

There is a look at the National Football League showcase of games for Week 12 of the season. Best of luck with all your National Football League betting, and enjoy the action on Thanksgiving. These games and much more are part of the great selection of games when participating in US sports betting.
