At 4:25 pm, our complimentary selection is on the Pittsburgh Steelers minus the points over Denver. The Broncos come into the Steel City with a 10-3 record, but should leave with a loss tonight. And that’s because the Black and Gold are a powerful 32-10 ATS since 1993 against non-division foes with a W/L percentage of .730 (or better), at Game 4 forward. Pittsburgh is locked in a tight battle with the Jets and Chiefs for a Wild Card berth, and knows it must win to remain in the hunt. Take Pittsburgh. Good luck, as always…Al McMordie.

The Spartans make their 10th bowl appearance and have won their past three (1990 California Raisin Bowl, 2006 New Mexico Bowl, 2012 Military Bowl).
Tyler Ervin rushed for 300 yards against Fresno State and 263 yards against New Mexico, but the senior has been held to 80 yards or fewer in three of his past four games. Quarterback Kenny Potter finished the season strong, passing for three touchdowns in each of the past three weeks while topping 300 yards twice, and San Jose State is disciplined – ranking third in the nation in fewest penalty yards per game (34.7). San Jose is 7-17 ATS in last 25 games when playing with 2 weeks or more of rest and 14-18 ATS in games played on turf.
Coach Trent Miles has sparked a remarkable turnaround in his third season at the helm for the Panthers, earning conference coach of the year honors, and senior quarterback Nick Arbuckle’s 4,160 passing yards is a school record and ranks sixth nationally. The Panthers struggled defensively in starting the season 1-4, but have allowed 21 points per game since and held Georgia Southern – the nation’s leading rushing team at 355.6 yards per game – to just 135 in a 34-7 victory Dec. 5. Georgia State averages only 103.1 rushing yards per game, ranking 123rd out of 127 FBS teams. Ga State is 7-3 ATS in games played on turf and 4-0 ATS off a win against a conference rival.
Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Jets
Week 15 NFL Over-Under Prediction: Under 41.5 points (December 19th 2015)
CLICK HERE FOR MARC DAVID’S EXPERT NFL PICKS
The Jets and Cowboys Face off in Dallas in a rare Saturday game. The Jets are in 2nd place and look to keep pace in the playoff race while unbelievably Dallas still has a mathematical possibility as well. Both teams have had their share of problems on offense but they both have also relied on their defense when push came to shove. The Jets rank 10th in points scored with 25 a game but on the road that drops to 20.7. They have been held to 23 points or less in 7 games this year and with receivers Devin Smith out and Jeremy Kerley questionable it might slow them down on the road. Their defense has played well giving up 19.7 points a game and play well against the run. Dallas has been in trouble all year since they lost Tony Romo. Their offense has dropped to 28th in the league and have dropped 9 games so far. Their offense has scored 20 points or less in 10 games. Again their defense is holding them together. They are ranked 9th overall and 4th against the pass. If the Jets have to run keep in mind they have scored only 10 TD’s on the ground all year. This game just might be won by the defenses.
