2017 NFL Week 12 Predictions



Minnesota faces Detroit in a game with huge implications in the NFC North on Thanksgiving Day.





Chris Ransom Last Updated: November 22, 2017.



Minnesota Vikings 8-2-0
Versus
Detroit Lions 6-4-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Our NFL Predictions are back. Everyone went 9-5 or better in week 11. Oren Shiri now has a six game lead at 103-57. Oren is now 32-9 in the least three weeks. Oren had 92 games at this point last year so an 11 game improvement is quite the leap in 2017. Jesse Lucas and Jason Bantle are now tied once again, this time for second place instead of first at 97-63. I am at 95-65, at this point last year I was 93-68 and still ended up winning. Tanya Holmes went 4-9 in week 8, but has gone 32-9 in the last three weeks putting her one game back of last place at 94-68.


Why the Minnesota Vikings Will Win: Minnesota has a lot of momentum with this stingy defense and Case Keenum at quarterback. That's one thing working for the Vikings.


Why the Detroit Lions Will Win: Matthew Stafford should make good decisions. He beat the Vikings in Minnesota and with the home crowd you have to think he will do just enough to win.


Prediction: Minnesota enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $130 dollars, the maximum bet is $150 dollars with the average gambler betting around $140 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 44.5 points. I think Detroit wins and covers the spread with the under.


Final Score Lions 20 Vikings 17





Who Everyone Else Picked






Tanya Holmes Oren Shiri Jesse Lucas Jason Bantle


Los Angeles Chargers 4-6-0
Versus
Dallas Cowboys 5-5-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


The Dallas Cowboys are now 34-25 under Bill Lumbergh. Lumbergh enters year four as the Dallas Cowboys GM with a 1-2 record in the Playoffs after winning a playoff game in his first year as a GM.


Why the Los Angeles Chargers Will Win: Los Angeles has Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Antonio Gates, and Hunter Henry. Having this many weapons to game-plan against will give a promising, yet inexperienced Cowboys secondary problems. Philip RIvers will have time in the pocket due to Russell Okung at left tackle. The front 7 for the Chargers is completely healthy and Tyron Smith is a game time decision. You will have Bosa and Ingram at full health versus Smith at 80 percent in a best case scenario for Dallas. Melvin Gordon can run the football as well. Chargers also don't have to worry about Ezekiel Elliott.


Why the Dallas Cowboys Will Win: Tyron Smith practiced on Monday. He worked with the first team on Tuesday. Dallas is not the same team without Smith. I'm leaning with Dallas slightly right now, but whether Dallas wins or not hinges a lot on Smith playing at left tackle. Dan Bailey may return at kicker too.


Prediction: Dallas enters as a 1 point favorite. The minimum bet is $100 dollars, the maximum bet is $120 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 48 points. I think Los Angeles wins and covers the over.


Final Score Chargers 30 Cowboys 27

New York Giants 2-8-0
Versus
Washington Redskins 4-6-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


NFL Big Brother a lot of plot twists for season 3. We are now down to 4 teams and the Titans are set to be the HOH in week 11. You can click the first links to find out what happened last week. 2017 NFL Big Brother Week 11 HOH. 2017 NFL Big Brother Week 11 Eviction.


Why the New York Giants Will Win: New York will not have Odell Beckham Jr. or Brandon Marshall to throw to. That limits what Eli Manning can do.


Why the Washington Redskins Will Win: Kirk Cousins did his best on Sunday in New Orleans. He's pissed about how that game ended and with New York's secondary being so ineffective, I think we see Washington put up a clinic. Cosins 2,796 passing yards are currently third in the NFL at the moment.


Prediction: Washington enters as a 7 point favorite. The minimum bet is $270 dollars, the maximum bet is $330 dollars with the average gambler betting around $300 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 44 points. I like Washington to win and cover with the over.

Why the Buffalo Bills Will Win: Buffalo still hasn't decided who their quarterback is yet. Nate Peterman threw 5 interceptions.


Why the Kansas City Chiefs Will Win: Kansas City is 1-4 in their last five. I still like them over Buffalo.


Prediction: Kansas City enters as a 9.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $375 dollars, the maximum bet is $475 dollars with the average gambler betting around $425 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 45 points. I like Kansas City to win and Buffalo to cover with the under.

Tennessee Titans 6-4-0
Versus
Indianapolis Colts 3-7-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Tanya Holmes decided to set an NBA lineup set up for DraftKings once again after winning $200 dollars on her first try. If you like Fantasy Basketball you can pay the $20 dollar entry fee and set a lineup today or you can go to Draft Kings and sign up with the promo code draftutopia for your 20 dollar discount and you can use that discount to play for free with Fantasy Basketball if you want to give that a try this week.




Why the Tennessee Titans Will Win: Tennessee needs to rebound after the brutal loss to Pittsburgh. Marcus Mariota should slaughter the Colts. Cornerbacks Rashaan Melvin and Quincy Wilson have to step up for Indianapolis to have a chance.


Why the Indianapolis Colts Will Win: Indianapolis has had two weeks to prepare for Tennessee. They should keep this game close.


Prediction: Tennessee enters as a 4.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $185 dollars, the maximum bet is $225 dollars with the average gambler betting around $205 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 44 points. I like Tennessee to win and cover with the under.

Cleveland Browns 0-10-0
Versus
Cincinnati Bengals 4-6-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


You can go to Fanpicks and enter the Promo Code draftutopia to win $20 dollars. We also have a Draft Kings advertisement on our home page so you can go there to sign up for Fantasy Football as well.


Why the Cleveland Browns Will Win: If Joe Thomas and Emmanuel Ogbah weren't injured this team would be someone to to strongly consider. Kizer blew it versus Jacksonville last week so this game should be a lock for Cincinnati. Myles Garrett has to go off like Adrian Clayborn just for the Browns to have a chance. Perhaps Cody Kessler plays.


Why the Cincinnati Bengals Will Win: Andy Dalton and A.J. Green should do enough to defeat Cleveland. Expect Cleveland to fall to 0-11.


Prediction: Cincinnati enters as a 8.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $340 dollars, the maximum bet is $430 dollars with the average gambler betting around $385 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 38.5 points. I like Cincinnati to win and Cleveland to cover with the over.


Final Score Bengals 24 Browns 17

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 4-6-0
Versus
Atlanta Falcons 6-4-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


We have a brand new 2018 NFL Draft Game where you can draft up to 180 different players. We added 10 more players to get the game up from 170 players to 180 players. We've also adjusted that order from 1-180 and are sending another updated draft board to one of our partners in Fanspeak for October. If your into NHL we also have a 2018 NHL Draft Game for our first round prospects. We also added a 2018 NBA Draft Game with our top 10 and a 2018 MLS Draft Game with our first round prospects which will be updated leading up to the 2018 MLS Super Draft in January. We'll be adding an MLB Draft game with the top 5 at some point in December.


Why the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Will Win: Tampa Bay may have a quarterback controversy on their hands if Ryan Fitzpatrick wins again. Tampa Bay will have trouble getting pressure on Atlanta. Former Falcons coaches Dirk Koetter and Mike Smith may be motivated to win this game. People are sleeping on Tampa Bay right now with their momentum.


Why the Atlanta Falcons Will Win: Matt Ryan should carve this defense as long as he gets time in the pocket. Ryan should have no problem connecting with Julio Jones while getting excellent protection from left tackle Jake Matthews.


Prediction: Atlanta enters as a 8.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $340 dollars, the maximum bet is $430 dollars with the average gambler betting around $385 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 48.5 points. I like Atlanta to win and cover with the under.


Final Score Falcons 31 Buccaneers 10

Miami Dolphins 4-6-0
Versus
New England Patriots 8-2-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


You can click this link to check out our 2018 NFL Mock Draft. My mocks are updated every Tuesday during the offseason and every Thursday during the regular season. With Thanksgiving games on Thursday, I may not get to the mock this week.


Why the Miami Dolphins Will Win: Miami's quarterback situation is just a big mess right now. They should do enough to cover the spread though.


Why the New England Patriots Will Win: Tom Brady will do just enough to win this game. With injuries to Marcus Cannon and David Andrews on the offensive line at right tackle and center, I expect Miami to get some pressure on Tom Brady as Miami may do enough to cover the point spread. New England will win though.


Prediction: New England enters as a 16.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $1,000 dollars, the maximum bet is $1,900 dollars with the average gambler betting around $1,450 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 48 points. I like New England to win and Miami to cover with the under.


Final Score Patriots 28 Dolphins 17

Chicago Bears 3-7-0
Versus
Philadelphia Eagles 9-1-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Joseph Potter, the co-host of my podcast also has his own channel on The Evolution Network. We're airing our next episode on Black Friday where we will give NFL teams that are expected to miss the playoffs a Black Friday they will never forget. so click that channel and subscribe.


Why the Chicago Bears Will Win: Chicago needs to run the football with Jordan Howard. The longer you can keep Carson Wentz off the field, the better your odds of winning this game become.


Why the Philadelphia Eagles Will Win: Carson Wentz should torch this Chicago secondary. This is also a revenge game for Alshon Jeffery so I expect Jeffery to go off in this game for that reason too.


Prediction: Philadelphia enters as a 13 point favorite. The minimum bet is $600 dollars, the maximum bet is $900 dollars with the average gambler betting around $750 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 44 points. I think Philadelphia wins and covers the under.


Final Score Eagles 28 Bears 14

Carolina Panthers 7-3-0
Versus
New York Jets 4-6-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


My friend Luis Tirado Jr. has some fantastic content over at The Jet Press. Check them out for more information on the Jets in 2017.


Why the Carolina Panthers Will Win: Carolina heads into New York hoping to maintain momentum in the NFC South. Cam Newton will lead Carolina to victory as long as he avoids turnovers. Cam Newton is 4-2 on Thanksgiving weekend in his career.


Why the New York Jets Will Win: New York had two weeks to prepare for Carolina. If New York doesn't win this game with extra time to prepare for Cam, then their season is probably over. Josh McCown did well in the first nine games before struggling versus Tampa Bay.


Prediction: Carolina enters as a 4.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $185 dollars, the maximum bet is $225 dollars with the average gambler betting around $205 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 40 points. I think Carolina wins and covers the over.

NFL Sins Everything Wrong With Week 12: 45 seconds of god damn NFL Logos, cable company logos, and protesting during the National Anthem. Lets get stuffed on Turkey and watch Detroit and Dallas win or lose at home in their yearly Thanksgiving tradition only to wrap up Thanksgiving with the 2-8 Giants and the 4-6 Redskins on Thursday Night Football.


I am sinning Roger Goodell for refusing to flex Giants VS Redskins with Vikings VS Lions since that is the game that belongs in Primetime. I am also adding 16 sins to the additional 2 sins I started with. Leaving Minnesota VS Detroit as the opening game for the second year in a row on Thanksgiving is just fucking lazy.


Buffalo is debating whether to start Nate Peterman or Tyrod Taylor in Kansas City. Buffalo gets 5 sins for being so god damn indecisive. If Mark Sciubba were doing this narration he would give way more sins then 5 since he's a Bills fan. Peterman threw 5 interceptions against the Chargers in a fucking soccer stadium in the first half. Tyrod Taylor beat the 2-0 Denver Broncos without his star left tackle Cordy Glenn.


Starting Peterman was easily Buffalos worst decision at quarterback since they decided to start Rob Johnson over Doug Flutie in their wild card loss to the Titans. Seriously McDermott is a bigger asshole then Frank Wychek for pulling that Billshit bullshit. Don’t get Bills fans started with the Music City Miracle they said.


My response is pretty straightforward. The only way the Bills will realize not to start Nate Peterman is if someone goes to Ralph Wilson Stadium and decides to spray paint Nate Peterman sucks Buffalo cock. If that’s what its going to take to keep this guy on the bench you owe it to yourselves to stoop to this level BillsMafia.


NFL decides they need to make us thankful for the NFL during Thanksgiving weekend by rewarding us with some pointless division rivalry games like Titans VS Colts and Browns VS Bengals. Adding two more sins for this.


Last time Tampa Bay went to Atlanta, Jameis Winston defeated the Falcons in the Georgia Dome back in week 1 of 2016. Now that Winston got benched and the Georgia Dome got demolished this minor achievement during Winston’s second season is basically an afterthought.


Jimmy Garoppolo defeated Ryan Tannehill at Gillette Stadium last year. I am kind of curious to see how Brian Hoyer would fare against Jay Cutler.


The I’m going to trade up for number 2 pick in the NFL Draft game featuring Mitchell Trubisky and Carson Wentz takes place at Lincoln Financial Field. Philadelphia got rewarded for paying a kings ransom to Cleveland. Meanwhile John Lynch kissed Ryan Pace after trading up for Trubisky and turned Chicago’s quarterback into a frog.


Speaking of John Lynch he has had two weeks to prepare for Seattle. That still may not be enough time though. Wilson is having a career season in 2017.


Drew Brees faces Jared Goff in Los Angeles. After emasculating Goff as a rookie in New Orleans, now we will either see Brees play Hollywood Squares with this Rams defense or watch Goff get his revenge on the Saints like Mel Gibson in Braveheart or Mel Gibson in Ransom.


Blaine Gabbert gets to unleash revenge on his former team the Jacksonville Jaguars. Good luck Blaine, you're going to need it because now Jacksonville has the number one defense in the entire NFL.


The other late game involves Paxton Lynch making his NFL debut where he invades the Black Hole in Oakland as Denver hopes to sweep Oakland and end their six game losing streak. The sad part about this was Denver’s last win came against the Raiders who are now at 4-6 while Denver is 3-7.


We get to see the Packers without Aaron Rodgers versus a potent Steelers team at Heinz Field. NBC is going to give us more Skygate Ex Machina bullshit. Seriously everyone at NBC deserves a bag of dicks for not flexing this game to Saints VS Rams.


Monday Night Football features Tom Savage attempting to do his best Matt Schaub impression and failing miserably. Ryan Mallett may stick it to his former team if Flacco gets injured in this game. 52 total sins.


Why the Seattle Seahawks Will Win: Seattle showed a lot of fight versus Atlanta despite having a banged up secondary without Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor. Russell Wilson should make a couple of key throws versus the 49ers.


Why the San Francisco 49ers Will Win: San Francisco had two weeks to prepare for this game. I was seriously considering picking them as an upset, but after the fight Seattle showed I think they should win, but expect San Francisco to show similar fight that Seattle showed on Monday Night by playing with a lot of effort. After all this game is the 49ers Super Bowl plus it will be a lot easier to throw on this secondary without Sherman or Chancellor.


Prediction: Seattle enters as a 6.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $250 dollars, the maximum bet is $300 dollars with the average gambler betting around $275 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 42 points. I like Seattle to win and San Francisco to cover with the under.

Check out Rams Showcase hosted by Joe Branham on Spreaker. Tonight they preview the Saints VS Rams game that should have been flexed. I'm gonna ask Joe if he thinks that game should have been flexed. Here is an archive of their other episodes.


Listen to "Rams Showcase" on Spreaker.


Why the New Orleans Saints Will Win: New Orleans has been red hot since starting the year 0-2 as they are on an 8 game-winning streak. This team just appears so complete and may be on a collision course to face the team they lost ot in week 2 in a Super Bowl 52 rematch.


Why the Los Angeles Rams Will Win: Los Angeles is coming off a heartbreaking loss to Minnesota last week. I don't see the Rams losing consecutive games and I think Goff does a much better job with overall execution this week.


Prediction: Los Angeles enters as a 2.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $125 dollars, the maximum bet is $145 dollars with the average gambler betting around $135 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 54 points. I like Los Angeles to win and cover with the under.

Speaking of Bill Clinton. Every week leading up to the College Football Playoff we will have Bill Clinton's College Football Playoff where Bill Clinton ranks the top 4 teams in College Football. This is the third year Bill Clinton has posted his College Football Playoff.


Bill Clinton's College Football Playoff Selection Special



  1. Alabama

    Alabama is the number one team again as Nick Saban is once again the biggest pimp in College Football.





  2. Miami FL

    The U it's all about the U.





  3. Wisconsin

    I want to see Monica Lewinsky eat a Badgers balls like Thad Castle on Blue Mountain State.





  4. Central Florida

    Central Florida is still unbeaten. They also have more wins than Florida and Florida State combined.






Why the Jacksonville Jaguars Will Win: Jacksonville has the NFL's best defense in 2017. This defense is probably the NFL's most complete defense since the Super Bowl 50 Denver defense in 2015 or the Super Bowl 43 defense that the Pittsburgh Steelers had in 2008. Just ask Super Bowl 43 quarterback Ben Roethlisberger who threw 5 interceptions to Jacksonville at Heinz Field. Jacksonville is first in the NFL in scoring defense with 14.1 points per game, first in total yards with 275.6 yards per game, first in passing defense with 162 passing yards allowed per game, first in sacks with 40 averaging at least 4 sacks per game through 10 games, first in forced fumbles with 13 forced fumbles on the year, first in fumble recoveries with 9 fumble recoveries on the year, and second in the NFL with 13 interceptions.


Why the Arizona Cardinals Will Win: Former Jaguar Blaine Gabbert would like nothing more than to beat the team that drafted him in the first round and replaced him with Blake Bortles. Jacksonville's defense is way better compared to when he was on the Jaguars though.


Prediction: Jacksonville enters as a 4.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $185 dollars, the maximum bet is $225 dollars with the average gambler betting around $205 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 38 points. I like Jacksonville to win and Arizona to cover with the over.

Denver Broncos 3-7-0

Oakland Raiders 4-6-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


All ten teams in the BFFL League have team logos. I'll use this section to rank where the 10 teams stand on Yahoo.



  1. Brees Nutz 9-2

    Mitch Pabst owner of Brees Nutz had the best draft in my opinion. This team is stacked and Mitch even told me he lost to Anti Bantle on purpose with all of his players on a bye week. This team led by Drew Brees and Ezekiel Elliott is 1-1 without Elliott. A win in week 12 gets them a playoff spot and knocks me out of the playoffs.





  2. Anti Bantle 9-2

    Anti Bantle won the league three years ago. They have a 9-2 team. They are also projected to score 150 points or more during their final three games. If I had to pick a team to get a 1 seed this would be the team. I had the top seed the last two years and lost to the eventual league champion each of the last two years so the 4 seed usually has good luck in our league.





  3. H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes 8-3

    H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes won last week as expected. This team swept me and to top that off they took Carson Wentz one spot before I picked in the seventh round and I knew Wentz in the seventh round was premium value. They get to use a seventh round keeper on Wentz next season so this team will be back.



  4. Previous Rank 4th




  5. Avengers 8-3

    Avengers is 8-3 now. Their owner may leave the league after this season.



  6. Previous Rank 3rd




  7. Team Mouserat 6-5

    I recruited Mark Sciubba to the league this year after a spot opened up. He began 5-4 before losing in week 10. With Tyrod Taylor getting benched, I have trouble seeing enough breaks go Mark's way to make the playoffs. He beat Breez Nuts the best team in the league at 9-1 and a team I have to face in week 12 so he's still alive and jumped up to five for that reason. He plays the leagues worst team in week 12 so he should improve to 7-5. It's worth noting that Team Mouserat has 60 less points scored than either of the 8-3 teams so one can argue they are in the same position I am in where they need to win out and have the 8-3 teams lose out.



  8. Previous Rank 6th




  9. Gangster Squad 5-6

    My team cannot clinch a top 2 spot with the leagues top two owners at 9-2. H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes swept me this year. The crazy thing is I still own a tiebreaker over them for more overall points scored. The same applies with Avengers who also defeated me. If I win out and one of these 8-3 teams loses out that puts me at 8-6 with the tiebreaker assuming I continue to outscore them. It's a long-shot, but still a shot. On the other hand, both 8-3 squads play teams eliminated from the playoff picture so my fate appears pretty much sealed .



  10. Previous Rank 5th




  11. The Chosen Ones 4-7

    Our league commissioner kept drafting quarterbacks that got injured like Andrew Luck and Ryan Tannehill. Even David Johnson got injured. The Chosen Ones managed to beat me by a point despite trailing by 40 points heading into Monday. This team lost in week 11 to drop to 4-7 and with the top 4 teams all having 8 wins in a 14 week season so they are eliminated from contention as well.





  12. Car RamRod 2-9

    Andrew Kermish one of the co hosts from our podcast is 2-9 this season. They have the worst record so far and are eliminated from playoff contention at this point.



  13. Previous Rank 10th




  14. TD Sprinkles 2-9

    Its like Flow from Progressive says "Sorry Jimmy Sprinkles are for winners." They are out of the playoffs as well.



  15. Previous Rank 8th




  16. Taco Corp 2-9

    Taco Corp won their opener. It doesn't help that Odell Beckham Jr. the player they used a first round keeper on is out for the year. Taco Corp is now eliminated after a 2-8 start since each of the top 4 teams has at least 7 wins and only 4 teams make the playoffs.



  17. Previous Rank 9th





Why the Denver Broncos Will Win: Denver hasn't won since week 4 when they beat the Raiders in Denver. Paxton Lynch is making his first start after being named the team starter. He played in and started a few games when Siemian was injured, but he didn't win the starting job outright as a rookie. Former Raiders offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave is taking over for Mike McCoy after being the quarterbacks coach for the first ten weeks of the year.


Why the Oakland Raiders Will Win: Oakland should take care of business. They need to get revenge on the Denver Broncos in order to save their season.


Prediction: Oakland enters as a 5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $200 dollars, the maximum bet is $240 dollars with the average gambler betting around $220 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 43.5 points. I like Oakland to win and Denver to cover with the under.

Why the Green Bay Packers Will Win: I'm not sure the Packers have a chance without Aaron Rodgers. I'll give Evan Massey of Inquisitr a lot of credit for attempting to sell me on the Packers this weekend.


Why the Pittsburgh Steelers Will Win: Pittsburgh should win this game handily. Aaron Rodgers is out. Clay Matthews may be out again too which gives Ben Roethlisberger a clean pocket on Sunday versus Green Bay.


Prediction: Pittsburgh enters as a 14 point favorite. The minimum bet is $260 dollars, the maximum bet is $320 dollars with the average gambler betting around $290 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 44 points. Pittsburgh wins and covers with the over.

I just cannot stand ESPN's Monday Night Football Coverage. Monday Night Football On KDKA is back with Bob Pompieni, Mark Madden, and Andrew Filiponi. Tonight the gang is in Baltimore.


Pompieni: Welcome to Monday Night Football. Bob Pompieni along with Mark Madden and Andrew Filiponi covering ESPN Monday Night Football on KDKA M&T Bank Stadium. Mark what are your thoughts on this game?

Madden: Tonight we see Tom Savage versus former Pitt Panthers quarterback Joe Flacco. Savage didn't transfer from Pittsburgh to Delaware.

Filiponi: Joe Flacco defected from the Pitt Panthers like they were the KGB.

Madden: Yes he did then he got drafted by the Ravens which is why Pittsburgh fans know Flacco is the NFL's biggest communist.

Pompieni: Jesus Christ Flacco has no relation to the KGB. Tonights game is brought to you by the M&T Bank.

Madden: Tonights game is sponsored by the KGB. Home of assholes who like to fuck with Pittsburgh like Joe Flacco, Alex Ovechkin, and Anthony Rizzo.

Pompieni: Alright tonights game is brought to you by M&T Bank and the KGB. We'll be back with kickoff after these commercial messages.



Why the Houston Texans Will Win: Houston heads to Baltimore without Deshaun Watson. It should be a long night for Tom Savage.


Why the Baltimore Ravens Will Win: Joe Flacco should have a field day with Houston. This defense isn't the same without Cushing or Watt.


Prediction: Baltimore enters as a 7 point favorite. The minimum bet is $260 dollars, the maximum bet is $320 dollars with the average gambler betting around $290 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 38 points. I like Baltimore to win and cover with the under.
