The Lions have been blown out in just two of their six games this season,
and laying this many points is always scary, but I think this Lions team still has some fight in them and you know Goff is looking to ball out today. Back door is ajar...maybe a suckers bet but I'm taking the points.
With all other predictions set aside, I want to state that although the obvious thing happening would be a demolishing of the Lions, I'm looking at it with a different view. Every week there is always a huge upset, or some type of game that we know is a trap game. This is more so a Revenge game for both QB's but more so Jared Goff. It's week 7, anything can happen, Donald and Ramsey will be lights out no doubt, the offense will be churning, but in-case any injuries, things can flip real quick.
This is a ballsy take, but out of all the games, no other team that's favored considerably like the Rams are more primed for a let down spot, heck, they lose to a crappy team once a year from the looks of it, I have a hunch.
Pair this with your parlays for faith, or even take props for Lions to Win etc. I don't wish injuries to occur, but I prepare for the unexpected so BOL
The Lions have kept games close, losing two of their last three games on the final play. Dan Campbell's squad competes. However, the defense can't generate any pressure. If a defense can't place Joe Burrow under duress, the quarterback will pick it apart by taking advantage of his impressive weapons at wide receiver, particularly rookie Ja'Marr Chase.
Throw in, however, that the Bengals lost cornerback Trae Waynes last week while star safety Jessie Bates III and standout running back Joe Mixon are both dealing with injuries, and an upset can't be ruled out.
I'm taking Detroit and think the Lions get their first win of the year against a banged up Bengals team.
Brandon Woodruff has been nails for Milwaukee and the Brewers have also been swinging the bat better of late, ranking 7th with a .277 average over the last 7 days. Brewers First 5 innings -145. Simple.
James Harden is listed as questionable with a left thigh contusion, but the good news is that Kevin Durant is expected to return to the starting lineup after being rested last game out. The Wizards have been in a world of hurt all season, and the Nets should be able to find success against their 30th ranked offense. Even if Harden can't go, Durant and Irving should be able to feast.
The Thunder pulled out a 111-110 win over the New Orleans Pelicans as 8-point road underdogs Wednesday. After starting 0-2, the Knicks have won five of their last six. They beat the Utah Jazz 112-100 as 8-point home dogs Wednesday for a third consecutive win. This is the first game New York has been favored this season and itâ€™s in large part due to the fact that the Thunder have the worst offensive rating in the NBA and the Knicks have the eighth-best defensive rating. I like the Knicks to keep it rolling here tonight.
Both teams are heading in opposite directions coming into this game. The Steelers have lost their last three games, while the Colts have won their last three.Major playoff implications are on the line in this game. The Colts can clinch a playoff spot with a win and some help, and the Steelers can clinch the AFC North with a win. Where the Colts can sneak a win will be on the defensive side. The Steelers offensive line is tough, no doubt, but Pittsburghâ€™s offense has been lackluster over the last month averaging just 17 points per game. The Colts find a way to limit the receiving threats just long enough to sneak out a win late in the fourth quarter.
No Daniel Jones and Colt McCoy is a backup QB for a reason. I don't think the Freddie Kitchens grudge match ends wells today. The Browns Mayfield didnt make THE statement, but they made A statement against Baltimore last week. Browns are pissed and they take it out on the short handed Giants today. Getting this line inside of a touchdown feels like a gift.
UNDERS UNDERS UNDERS!! I just don't see the offensive show that the Cowboys have provided through the first four games. As hard as it is to imagine a dominant defensive performance by Dallas, itâ€™s tougher to picture the Giants without Saquon Barkley lighting up the scoreboard. Expect field goals and a struggle, LOVE THE UNDERS. Score prediction: Cowboys 20, Giants 9
James Paxton has been lights out in his 3 home starts with his new team. Gibson looked good in his last 2 starts in Baltimore but he has a career ERA of over 7 against the Yankees. I like Paxton to win tonight but -150 makes it hard to bet.
Not excited about this game but if I have to play it then I'm going Under 217. I wouldn't go Knicks +13 touch the spread as I think Celtics are playing solid basketball right now and at home I think they win in a blowout.
I don't think OKC should be a 9 point favorite especially the way Knicks lost last game...they are bound to be motivated to play better. I am not saying Knicks will win but it's worth to take a look at the +9 here today and I believe the Over/Under is a bit high. I would go Under 214.5
computer models loving Saints today. Given the history of New York Giants I'll go with the computer models. NY has the talent just can't pull it together....unfortunately. My home team goes down today I'm afraid. Saints by a TD. :(
Detroit Lions are floating high going into Dallas today. If they are able to find a way to shut down Zek they have a good chance here to pull off another upset. I think Detroits puts up enough points to give Dallas a game and in the end covers the now 2.5 spread even though Dallas is at home.
Memphis averages 49.5 ppg while they give up 23.3 ppg. The Green Wave is getting 22.3 ppg and giving up 30 ppg . Last game the Tigers running back Henderson ran for 188 yds and had two touchdowns. He rushes for over 12 yards per carry. The Green Wave doens't have the defense to contain this monster RB. Memphis covers.
I'm really surprised to see St. Louis as a small dog in this one. Roark is starting to regress back to the pitcher that struggled at the beginning of the season, allowing four runs in his last start with the Nationals giving their starter just one run of support over his last two starts. The lack of run support wonâ€™t help with Roark boasting a 5.57 ERA against the Cardinals in his career, and while Mikolas has had his ups and downs, he is 7-0 on the road this season in 13 starts. Iâ€™ll take the hotter team with the pitching advantage and the plus money.
DOG OF THE DAY - Good spot here for the value pick on the Cincinnati Reds. Peralta has bounced back with two consecutive quality starts, giving up three earned on six total hits in 13.0 innings. As for Harvey, heâ€™s surrendered three earned over his last three starts in 18.2 innings.
Both of these teams are on fire, so you can make a strong case for either side, especially with the line pretty much being a toss-up. Mikolas has been the better pitcher, but he has allowed three homers in his last 13 innings, and that's not good entering Coors. Senzatela has an ERA of 3.00 at home this season and has allowed four runs in his last 16.2 innings with 12 strikeouts. While the Cardinals had yesterday off, the Rockies got an even bigger confidence boost with a walkoff homer despite facing their last out. Wins like that can carry over for the next few games. I've been high on the Cards this month and we've cashed as some nice dogs, but for this game, I'll be on the Rockies.
There just hasnâ€™t been a lot of success for Estrada on the mound, and for whatever reason he seems to have a curse when heâ€™s taking on the Rays. Snell has had some success of late, I think we take Tampa Bay here at the cheap price.
Eovaldiâ€™s scoreless innings streak has me a little weary of backing the Sox heading into this game. Heâ€™s given up just one earned run over his past 21 innings of work following an eight-run beatdown on the road against the Minnesota Twins. Eovaldi has benefitted from a .230 BABIP so far this season, which is more than 70 points lower than his career average. Bundy hasnâ€™t had any luck versus the Red Sox this season, but heâ€™s pitched well in three starts against Boston. I'll take a stab with Baltimore and the plus money here today.
My money is on the Diamondbacks in this matchup. Zack Godley is having an excellent season on his home field, posting a 6-2 record with a solid 3.43 ERA. Arrieta is no slouch himself but I'm betting more on the Arizona offense and the fact they are at home...I'll lay the juice in this spot.
The Angels took game one, but that doesnâ€™t change the fact that the Angels have been brutal on the road as of late and are sending out Pena who gave up seven runs in his last outing while failing to make it out of the first inning and finishing with a 189.00 ERA in that outing. Yikes. Kluber is looking like the Kluber we are used to seeing, and while he has been shaky at home, heâ€™s still a better option than the alternative so Iâ€™ll back Cleveland here on the run line to negate the heavy juice.
