Eagles vs. Giants Week 15 NFL Pick from AAA Sports: December 17th 2017

Philadelphia Eagles vs. New York Giants
Week 15 NFL Pick: Giants +9 (December 17th 2017)

Eli Manning and the Giants are playing for pride the rest of the way. Last week New York fell 30-10 to Dallas. Injuries and other issues led to the Giants miserable season, but they won’t be going down without a fight. They also play with revenge after falling to the Eagles 27-24 earlier in the year.

Philadelphia comes in off a 43-35 win at the Rams, but the victory came at a major cost, as starting QB Carson Wentz has now been lost for the remainder of the season to injury. Note that Philadelphia is just 5-8 ATS in its last 13 played on “turf,” while New York is 2-1 ATS this year off a division game, 2-1 ATS after a loss to a division rival and 4-3 ATS after two or more consecutive losses. Consider the GIANTS in this one.

Cleveland Browns vs. Buffalo Bills Week 15 NFL Pick: December 18th 2016

Cleveland Browns vs. Buffalo Bills
Week 15 NFL Pick: Browns +10.5 points (December 18th 2016)

1st of 7 NFL Picks for Sunday. The other 6 are ALL star rated NFL premium picks. HUGE 4-1 (80%) with ALL football picks (including a PERFECT 2-0 with football Top Plays) Saturday! Don’t miss NFL Sunday as Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach, (673-517 +$102,750 ALL football L5 YEARS), will remain RED HOT on the gridiron! He is looking to add to a PERFECT 4-0 Run with football Top Plays! Last Sunday his NFL Top Plays SWEPT!

Rickenbach’s Free Pick – NFL Game #315 Sunday – Cleveland Browns (+) @ Buffalo Bills @ 1 ET – It may be tough to take an 0-13 Browns team that has only covered 2 games all season. However, isn’t it also tough to lay double digits with a Bills team that is stumbling badly? Buffalo, after a 4-2 start to the season, has now lost 5 of its last 7 and the two wins came by 7 points or less. As bad as Cleveland has been they are still “fighting” as the last thing they want is to be a part of history as a winless team. Also, look for QB Robert Griffin III to be better in his 2nd game back. RG III worked the rust off last week! I expect the Bills to drop to 2-8 ATS in games against AFC opponents this season as the Browns improve to a long-term 37-26 ATS in road games with a posted total between 38.5 and 42 points. Look for an ugly game in frigid Buffalo in Week 15 and that means the value is with the big points. Grab the dog. Play CLEVELAND as a Free Pick early Sunday. Best of luck, Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach

Detroit Lions vs. New York Giants Week 15 Prediction from Jack Jones: December 18th 2016

Detroit Lions vs. New York Giants
NFL Betting Prediction: Giants -4 (December 18th 2016)

The Detroit Lions are probably the single-most overrated team in the NFL this season.  Miraculously, they have a 9-4 record despite trailing in the 4th quarter in 12 of their 13 games this season.  Matthew Stafford has an NFL-record eight game-winning drives in the 4th quarter or OT this season.

That isn’t sustainable, and the Lions are in over their heads this week.  The main reason is because Stafford has an injury to the middle finger on his throwing hand that is requiring him to wear a glove.  We saw how that worked out against the Bears last week.

After the injury, Stafford threw a red zone interception.  Then on their very next drive, he threw a pick-six that gave the Bears the lead.  Give Stafford credit for leading the Lions on another game-winning drive after that, but he only completed one pass on the drive.  The Lions were aided by penalties, and Stafford scored the deciding TD rushing.

Stafford has been testing out a bunch of different gloves all week to try and find something that feels comfortable.  According to reports, nothing feels right.  And without Stafford on his ‘A’ game, the Lions have no shot of beating the Giants this week in a hostile, cold atmosphere on the road in New York this week.

Now Stafford will have to face one of the most improved defenses in the NFL this week.  The Giants rank 7th in scoring defense, giving up just 18.8 points per game this year.  They have held 12 of their 13 opponents to 24 points or fewer this season, including five of the last seven to 20 or less.  They limited the Cowboys to just 7 points and 260 total yards last week while forcing three turnovers.

Detroit is 9-26 ATS in its last 35 road games off two or more consecutive wins.  New York is 8-0 ATS vs. teams who average 7 or more passing yards per attempt over the last two seasons.  The Giants are 5-0 ATS in their last five home games vs. a team with a winning record.  New York is 6-1 at home this season.

Here’s another shocking stat about Stafford.  He has only beaten one team on the road in his ENTIRE career that finished the season with a winning record.  Well, the Giants are going to finish with a winning record, and they’re on a mission here to get a win and inch closer to securing a playoff berth.  Bet the Giants Sunday.

Jack Jones has put together a MASSIVE 709-609 Football Run long-term! That includes a more recent 32-15 Football TEAR over his last 47 releases! He’s also on a 14-6 NFL Run after delivering a 4-0 Sunday NFL SWEEP last week!

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Baltimore Ravens Week 15 NFL Pick: December 18th 2016

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Baltimore Ravens
Week 15 NFL Pick: Baltimore -5.5 points (December 18th 2016)

I’m getting a lousy vibe from the slumping Eagles, just 2-8 SU and ATS since their hot 3-0 start back in September.  Philly’s offense has been limited all year, and that hasn’t changed.  Rookie QB Carson Wentz has hit a wall, now that opposing coordinators have plenty of film to study.

Top RB Ryan Matthews is banged up; change of pace back and special teams maestro Darren Sproles is out, top WR Jordan Matthews is banged up and their offensive line is struggling in every way.

Defensively, the Eagles have gone downhill over the past month and a half.  They’ve notched only eight sacks in the last seven games, and have permitted at least two TD passes in eight of their last ten overall.  The Eagles scored another defensive touchdown last week against the Redskins, but they still lost and failed to cover the spread; a major ‘red flag’ moving forward.

And then there are the rumbles in the Eagles locker room.  Last week, Defensive end Fletcher Cox was not amused by head coach Doug Pederson’s quote that ‘Not everyone (played hard)” in their ugly loss at Cinci last week. Cox: “That’s one of the things that we talked about, sticking together. And not calling anyone out, not separating yourself. Just sticking together as a team and as an organization and then when I heard that, it kinda wowed me. That’s not stuff that we do or things that we talk about it, but obviously somebody felt that way and they’re going to say how they feel.”

The fact that the Eagles lost at home, allowing 27 points including a late, backbreaking TD doesn’t bode well for their chances of improved chemistry moving forward.  And it’s surely worth noting that Philly hasn’t won a road game or even covered a single pointspread on the highway since their Week 2 win on Sunday Night Football against the Bears.

There’s a sense of urgency in Baltimore this week following the Ravens loss at New England on Monday Night Football, dropping John Harbaugh’s squad a game behind Pittsburgh in the AFC North standings.  The Ravens defense is primed to put Carson Wentz on his back early and often; a strong pass rush teeing off against an injury riddled offensive line.

But the key to covering pointspreads in this range is the Ravens noticeable improvement in their passing game, a team that is suddenly scoring touchdowns after a season’s worth of red zone futility.  Over the past two weeks, against a pair of rock solid defenses, the Ravens have scored six TD’s in eight red zone tries.  Expect that red zone success to continue on Sunday, setting Baltimore up for a win and cover as home chalk against Philly.  Take the Ravens.

Packers vs. Bears Week 15 NFL Point Spread Pick from Scott Spreitzer: December 18th 2016

Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears
Week 15 NFL Point Spread Pick: Bears +6 (December 18th 2016)

I’m taking the points with the Chicago Bears on Sunday.  The dog has certainly been the way to go, covering 16 of the last 21 Bears’ games.  We had the Packers last week, a case where we felt they were undervalued, while the Seahawks were over-hyped off their win over the Carolina Panthers.  A concern here is Aaron Rodgers, who was hobbling in the win over Seattle.  Rodgers’ calf isn’t 100% healthy and we feel it’ll effect his ability to escape trouble.

The Chicago pass defense is a stingy one and they’re 7th best in the league in total yards allowed per game. Meanwhile, on offense, Matt Barkley has shown improvement of late and Jordan Howard has played extremely well. Chicago has covered four straight, overall, and three in a row at Soldier Field.  We feel they’ll hang the number in the matchup with the Packers.  I’m grabbing the points with Chicago on Sunday.  Thanks & GL!  Scott Spreitzer.

Doc’s Sports betting the Browns +10.5 over the Bills in Week 15: December 18th 2016

Cleveland Browns vs. Buffalo Bills
Week 15 NFL Pick: Browns +10.5 points (December 18th 2016)

Free Play from Doc’s Sports. #315 Take Cleveland Browns over Buffalo Bills (Sunday 1 pm CBS) The Browns have to win a game sooner or later don’t they? Buffalo nearly got their coached fired on Monday after losing to Pittsburgh at home and I just do not believe they have much to play for down the stretch. Thus, we will grab the double-digits and believe in Cleveland to keep this game close.

If Cleveland can muster 17-20 they should be in good shape to cover this spread. Buffalo has lost two straight games and playing at home will not give them much of an advantage. Do not miss out on Doc’s Sports Weekend Football and Basketball Card. We are coming off an outstanding week in all sports and now is the time to jump on board with a handicapper that has 45 years of experience.
