With the College Football season winding down into the bowl games, I only have one choice this week, the Army/Navy game. Which is always a blast to watch. Last week, I went 3-1 in CFB bringing my season record to 30-21-1. In NFL action, I plead the 5th, losing all 3 games dropping my record to 17-19. I look to get back in the win column this week. And with the disappearance of College football this week, I will add 2 more games to the NFL slate.
Army (-8) vs Navy
In a game traditionally dominated by Navy (won 14 straight from 2002-2015), Army has taken the last 2 in two very close games. I see this one being a little bit of a stunner. Army has been playing great (bowl game coming) where Navy has fallen off. Where these games have always close, I can see this one being a blowout in Army’s favor. Take the points and Army in a big win.
Season Record 30-21-1
Patriots @ Dolphins OVER 48
The Dolphins tend to show up against New England at home. However, they also cannot stop ANYONE this season. I can see the Patriots putting up 30 easily, while the Dolphins have to do their part and put up 18 or more (21,24 in both Tannehill return games). Take the over here.
Browns (+1) vs Panthers
Both teams are reeling after turnover prone defeats on the road last week. The Browns come home to very cold temps and a Panthers team struggling to rebound after a 6-2 start. I like the Browns here.
Chiefs (-6.5) vs Ravens
The Chiefs have been virtually unstoppable on offense all year. The Ravens have a great defense. But in a game that is going to come down to airing it out, give me the Chiefs covering near a touchdown against the Ravens. I just haven’t seen it from Lamar Jackson yet to be able to win in a shootout.
Buccaneers (+9.5) vs Saints
The Bucs have traditionally kept games competitive against the Saints. In their first meeting, Jameis had the Bucs knocking on the doorstep for a huge come from behind win which fell short. Expect a ton of scoring and the Bucs keeping it within a TD.
Broncos (-3.5) @ 49ers
The Broncos are riding a hot streak and looking to continue against a 2-10 49ers team. Denver’s defense should have no problems and will ride Phillip Lindsay to victory.
Season Record 17-19
