2017 NFL Week 15 Predictions



Ben Roethlisberger hasn't defeated Tom Brady since his rookie year. Now him and Bell are both healthy.





Chris Ransom Last Updated: December 13, 2017.



Denver Broncos 4-9-0
Versus
Indianapolis Colts 3-10-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


The Draft Utopia podcast is back for season 8 on Talkshoe and this is also our first season with live episodes of the podcast on Youtube.


To call in just dial 724-444-7444 and then 114547#. After that you need to create a Talkshoe account with a phone number and then you dial that phone number and press pound or you can press 1# after dialing in 724-444-7444 and then 114547#. Draft Utopia has a new episodes every Sunday at 9 AM EST and Friday at 2 PM EST this month. We're going over MLB Winter Meeting Signings on the podcast all throughout the week this week.




Why the Denver Broncos Will Win: Neither one of these teams can make the playoffs. Denver has the better defense plus both coaches are playing for there jobs. After we trashed Denver for giving up the most passing touchdowns in the NFL with Vance being a former defensive backs coach he pitched a shutout on the Jets. I think Denver carries that momentum into Indianapolis with the Colts not having Andrew Luck.


Why the Indianapolis Colts Will Win: I basically cannot think of any reasons for the Colts to win without Luck. Denver should take care of business.


Prediction: Denver enters as a 2 point favorite. The minimum bet is $110 dollars, the maximum bet is $130 dollars with the average gambler betting around $120 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 42 points. I like Denver to win and Indianapolis to cover with the under.


Final Score Broncos 21 Colts 20

Chicago Bears 4-9-0
Versus
Detroit Lions 7-6-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Draft Utopia has a playlist with prospects we've interviewed on our Youtube channel. If there is a certain prospect you want us to reach out to use the hashtag #ProspectRequest on twitter. Let's make that a trend. Here is our playlist though.




Why the Chicago Bears Will Win: Chicago got lucky on the road last week. Cincinnati felt psychologically defeated after losing their 17-3 lead to Pittsburgh at halftime.


Why the Detroit Lions Will Win: Matthew Stafford knows Detroit needs to win out if they want to have any shot at making the playoffs.


Prediction: Detroit 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 43.5 points. I like Detroit to win and cover with the under.


Final Score Lions 27 Bears 10

Los Angeles Chargers 7-6-0
Versus
Kansas City Chiefs 7-6-0


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. This weeks entry is $8 dollars for a west coast challenge.




Why the Los Angeles Chargers Will Win: Los Angeles has a ton of weapons and a ton of momentum on both sides of the ball. You would think with that momentum they would be favored to beat the Chiefs in Kansas City.


Why the Kansas City Chiefs Will Win: Kansas City should win. They managed to defeat Oakland in handily fashion despite not having Marcus Peters at cornerback. Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree both struggled even without Marcus Peters or Eric Berry. Kansas City may give up a lot of points ot Los Angeles, but I also feel their offense will do just enough for Kansas City to prevail.


Prediction: Kansas City enters as a 1 point favorite. The minimum bet is $190 dollars, the maximum bet is $220 dollars with the average gambler betting around $205 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 45 points. I like Kansas City to win and cover with the over.

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 Houston Texans Will Win: I'm not sure if Houston is going to start Tom Savage or T.J. Yates. It won't matter though. Houston doesn't have a chance on Sunday.


Why the Jacksonville Jaguars Will Win: Jacksonville has the NFL's best defense. I expect them to dominate this game and improve to 10-4.


Prediction: Jacksonville enters as a 11.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $475 dollars, the maximum bet is $625 dollars with the average gambler betting around $550 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 38.5 points. I like Jacksonville to win and cover with the over.

Baltimore Ravens 7-6-0
Versus
Cleveland Browns 0-13-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Joseph Potter, the co-host of my podcast also has his own channel on The Evolution Network. Subscribe, like, share, go into the chat room and troll Joey.


Why the Baltimore Ravens Will Win: Baltimore heads into Cleveland for the Browns home finale. This is a must win game for Baltimore with them being tied for Buffalo at 7-6 with Buffalo currently wining the wild card. Marlon Humphrey gets a managable opponent in Josh Gordon who I can see him having success on.


Why the Cleveland Browns Will Win: Cleveland wont have Joe Thomas to protect Kizer's blindside. Baltimore's lethal pass rush gave Kizer problems back in week 2. I expect more of the same. Baltimore not having Jimmy Smith is one thing that works in Kizer's favor.


Prediction: Baltimore enters as a 7.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $390 dollars, the maximum bet is $350 dollars with the average gambler betting around $320 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 40 points. I like Baltimore to win and Cleveland to cover with the under.

Green Bay Packers 7-6-0
Versus
Carolina Panthers 9-4-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I just figured out how to embed comments on my Facebook page onto the site. We're going to reserve this section to post some of the top comments from week 14 and week 15. Next season we'll be able to post peoples picks from social media directly onto the site.






Ryan Romero, the co-host of my podcast is constantly posting articles on our Facebook page and I finally figured out how to get those articles on our site.


Why the Green Bay Packers Will Win: Aaron Rodgers comes back for Green Bay. That's huge for the Packers.


Why the Carolina Panthers Will Win: Cam Newton needs this win. Carolina is now tied with New Orleans for the division. Luke Kuechly has balled out at middle linebacker and is facing Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers this week.


Prediction: Carolina enters as a 2.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $120 dollars, the maximum bet is $140 dollars with the average gambler betting around $130 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 45 points. I like Green Bay to win and cover with the over.

Miami Dolphins 6-7-0
Versus
Buffalo Bills 7-6-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


We have a brand new 2018 NFL Draft Game where you can draft up to 190 different players. We added 10 more players to get the game up from 180 players to 190 players and adjusted the top 8 picks. We've also adjusted that order from 1-190 and are sending another updated draft board to one of our partners in Fanspeak for December next week. 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, an 2018 MLB Draft Game featuring our top 5, and a 2018 MLS Draft Game which now features our top 46 for the first two rounds of the Super Draft. We now have draft games up for all of the pro sports.




Why the Miami Dolphins Will Win: Miami pulled a huge upset on the New England Patriots. This game is now a game with huge implications in the AFC East Division. Miami can push themselves back into wild card contention with a win.


Why the Buffalo Bills Will Win: Buffalo has LeSean McCoy. He may cause problems for the Dolphins this week. They should also get Tyrod Taylor and Tre'Davious White back this week too.


Prediction: Buffalo 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 40 points. I like Buffalo to win and cover with the under.


Final Score Bills 20 Dolphins 14

Versus
Minnesota Vikings 10-3-0


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.


Why the Cincinnati Bengals Will Win: Cincinnati benched Andy Dalton last week. They already have a quarterback controversy on their hands whether they realize it or not.


Why the Minnesota Vikings Will Win: Case Keenum is heading back home after the loss to Carolina. Minnesota knows they can clinch the NFC North with a win.


Prediction: Minnesota 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 41 points. I like Minnesota to win and cover with the under.

Arizona Cardinals 6-7-0
Versus
Washington Redskins 5-8-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Oren Shiri now has a six game lead at 138-70 after a 6-10 week. Jason Bantle went 9-7 in week 14 putting him at 132-76. Jesse Lucas is now in third place at 130-78. I went 9-7 in week 14 and am at 128-80 on the year. Tanya Holmes is 125-83.




Why the Arizona Cardinals Will Win: Arizona is still in the playoff hunt. You can't say the same about Washington.


Why the Washington Redskins Will Win: Washington may have more talent than Arizona. Washington is eliminated from the playoff hunt even if they win out.


Prediction: Minnesota enters as a 4.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $180 dollars, the maximum bet is $220 dollars with the average gambler betting around $200 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 44 points. I like Arizona to win and cover with the under.

Philadelphia Eagles 11-2-0
Versus
New York Giants 2-11-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


NFL Sins Everything Wrong With Week 15: 45 seconds of god damn NFL Logos, cable company logos, and protesting during the National Anthem. NFL Thursday Night Football on Pearl Harbor yes that's a sin. We kick off week 15 with a game with two teams eliminated from contention with Denver and Indianapolis. NBC has to whip out Sky cameras desperate for ratings. Sky-Gate Ex-Machina. We open with 100 sins for this infraction.


NFL schedules two saturday games on the first week of NCAA Bowl games. The NFL gets another 200 sins for this.


Aaron Rodgers returns to Green Bay as the starter with the Packers going on the road to Carolina. Mike Zimmer gets to seal Marvin Lewis's fate. It's almost like an NFL edition of Horrible Bosses when you consider many fans want Lewis fired.


With Carson Wentz tearing his ACL we get Nick Foles versus Eli Manning. I'm adding 11 sins for this.


Los Angeles goes into CenturyLink Field without having to worry about Richard Sherman or Kam Chancellor. NFC West supremacy at his finest.


Expect Jimmy Garoppolo to finally lose his first game at home after finally winning two in a row on the road. New England heads to Pittsburgh. A game that decides home field in the AFC deserves 1,000 sins when you consider these are the power house teams of the AFC.


Dallas heads to Oakland in their final game without Ezekiel Elliott. Atlanta gets to remind Tampa Bay how shitty their former coaches are


After that we end the week on a bang with a high note. Having late games like Carson Wentz VS Jared Goff, Seattle at 8-4 facing Jacksonville at 8-4, Baltimore in Pittsburgh on Sunday Night Football before we see the Patriots party in the city of Miami in the heat of dawn all night all day to the blink of dawn without Gronkowski makes for a very memorable week. I'm removing 4 sins optimistic about week 14. 1,320 total sins.


Why the Philadelphia Eagles Will Win: Philadelphia should still win this game even without Wentz. Nick Foles is a decent game manager and New York is just a mess.


Why the New York Giants Will Win: Eli Manning will have problems with this defense. Expect New York to get swept by Philadelphia.


Prediction: Philadelphia enters as a 8 point favorite. The minimum bet is $320 dollars, the maximum bet is $390 dollars with the average gambler betting around $355 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 40 points. I like Philadelphia to win and New York to cover with the under.

New York Jets 5-8-0
Versus
New Orleans Saints 9-4-0


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 New York Jets Will Win: New York is eliminated with a loss on Sunday. That's one thing working against the Jets.


Why the New Orleans Saints Will Win: New Orleans has a great offense. They get two home games in a row with New York this week and then Atlanta in week 16. You have to think the Saints are fired up after the week 14 loss to Atlanta.


Prediction: New Orleans enters as a 16 point favorite. The minimum bet is $900 dollars, the maximum bet is $1,600 dollars with the average gambler betting around $1,250 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47 points. I like New Orleans to win and cover with the under.

Los Angeles Rams 9-4-0
Versus
Seattle Seahawks 8-5-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Check out Rams Showcase hosted by Joe Branham on Spreaker. Tonight they preview the Rams VS Seahawks 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 Los Angeles Rams Will Win: Jared Goff wnats revenge for the earlier meeting. Without Richard Sherman or Kam Chancellor, I don't see Seattle shutting down Goff's weapons.


Why the Seattle Seahawks Will Win: Seattle has dominated offensively. With Russell Wilson playing at a high level, I expect more of the same.


Prediction: Los Angeles 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 47.5 points. I like Los Angeles to win and cover with the over.

Tanya Holmes Oren Shiri Jesse Lucas Jason Bantle



Tennessee Titans 8-5-0
Versus
San Francisco 49ers 3-10-0


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 11-3

    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 2-12 without Elliott. Even if they lose Ezekiel Elliott this team can use a third round keeper on Todd Gurley, a fifteenth round keeper on Adam Thielen, and a seventeenth round keeper on Alvin Kamara. Passing on Thielen for Britt was easily my worst fantasy blunder in 2017. Mitch should use keepers on Thielen and Kamara and reload next season by taking the best player on the board.



  2. Previous Rank 2nd




  3. Avengers 11-3

    Avengers is 10-3 now. Their owner may leave the league after this season. The good news is if someone replaces them that owner will be able to use a first round keeper on Le'Veon Bell and an eleventh round keeper on Kareem Hunt. That alone makes Avengers a very attractive team to take over if Gary decides to leave the league and nobody in this league should be able to take over for a team this good if that's what Gary wants to do. I say if we get a new owner that person should have the right to use keepers on Bell and Hunt. If this is Avengers last year in the league I hope they go out in style and win the league. If Avengers decides to come back for one more season in 2018 they will have a very good team with arguably the leagues best running back tandem.



  4. Previous Rank 3rd




  5. Anti Bantle 11-3

    Anti Bantle won the league three years ago. Anti Bantle will lose Antonio Brown and Tom Brady next year most likely which is why its win or potentially go through a rebuild if they don't win the league title this season. They can use a second round keeper on Rob Gronkowski and a third round keeper on Russell Wilson after this season.



  6. Previous Rank 1st




  7. H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes 10-4

    H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes has clinched the playoffs. 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 eighth round was premium value. H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes can use a third round keeper on DeAndre Hopkins, a fifth round keeper on Keenan Allen, or an eighth round keeper on Carson Wentz. Heath has a lot of options even if he doesn't go all the way this season and should be back in contention as one of the favorites in 2018.





  8. Gangster Squad 7-7

    My team is now eliminated. I can use a keeper on two players next season with Jared Goff my fourteenth round pick being a player I'll probably end up putting a fourteenth round keeper on. I'll probably keep my first two picks and use a third round keeper on Leonard Fournette and risk losing Melvin Gordon knowing I can probably get him at 6. I'm also considering taking Tom Brady in 2018 in the first round since Anti Bantle used his other keeper on him in 2017 and it's a two quarterback league. Keeping Goff and drafting Brady means I can ignore need and take the best player on the board early in the draft after that. Odell Beckham may be available at this spot too plus I may end up at 6. We'll wait and see how things play out.



  9. Previous Rank 6th




  10. Team Mouserat 7-7

    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 remained in contention until the final week of the regular season. I went 1-13 my first year in the league before turning things around at 11-3 next year. Mark and I are playing for the number five pick in the 2018 BFFL Draft this week. We're both going to do our best to avoid it. Mark may opt not to use his first round pick since he can use a first round keeper on Julio Jones next year, but doing this will cost him a chance at keeping LeSean McCoy. Since Mark is a Bills fan I intend on playing mind games with him over whether he opts to draft McCoy at 5 or use 5 to use a keeper on Julio Jones.



  11. Previous Rank 5th




  12. The Chosen Ones 5-9

    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 12 to drop to 4-8 and with the top 4 teams all having 8 wins in a 14 week season so they are eliminated from contention as well. Despite being eliminated they won to improve to 5-8. Jason will probably use his second round keeper on A.J. Green and if David Johnson is there at 4 again, I can see Bantle taking him in hopes of a comeback season in 2018. It's really too early to say.





  13. Car RamRod 3-11

    Andrew Kermish one of the co hosts from our podcast is 3-11 this season. They have the worst record so far and are eliminated from playoff contention at this point. I'm expecting Kerm to use a second round keeper on Amari Cooper like he did two years ago as well as a fourth round keeper on Mark Ingram. Kerm used keepers on both of those players back in 2016 and since he drafted both players without using keepers on them in 2017 Kerm can basically stash Cooper and Ingram like he's running a dynasty league by using keepers on them again two years later in 2018. I'm almost certain that Car RamRod will take Ezekiel Elliott third overall if he's available next season assuming Taco Corp doesn't take him second overall. Kerm is a huge Cowboys fan and we'll have to see how the board plays out. If Andrew Kermish's draft plays out like that he could be one of next years big risers.





  14. Taco Corp 3-11

    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 was 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. They finished 3-11. Taco Corp can use a fifth round keeper on Philip Rivers to give their team some stability at quarterback. A ninth round keeper on Zach Ertz and a fourth round keeper on Joe Mixon are both strong options as well.





  15. TD Sprinkles 2-12

    Its like Flow from Progressive says "Sorry Jimmy Sprinkles are for winners." They are out of the playoffs as well. The good news is if Jimmy gets the top pick he can use keepers on Jordan Howard and Dalvin Cook at running back or perhaps Winston at quarterback. The toughest decision they make involves deciding whether to use a first round keeper on Aaron Rodgers or take Antonio Brown who Anti Bantle used a first round keeper on.






Why the Tennessee Titans Will Win: Tennessee heads into San Francisco needing a win. Tennessee cannot afford to fall 2 games behind the Jaguars.


Why the San Francisco 49ers Will Win: Jimmy Garoppolo is 2-0 with the 49ers as a starter so far. Maybe he can defeat the Titans to get off to 3-0 in his third game as a starter.


Prediction: Tennessee enters as a 2 point favorite. The minimum bet is $110 dollars, the maximum bet is $130 dollars with the average gambler betting around $120 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 44 points. I like Tennessee to win and cover with the over.


Final Score Titans 35 49ers 21





Who Everyone Else Picked






Tanya Holmes Oren Shiri Jesse Lucas Jason Bantle


New England Patriots 10-3-0
Versus
Pittsburgh Steelers 11-2-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Fan Drafted will have their site launching at one point in the near future. They are working on an awesome state of the art draft app for Android and we're proud to say that we will be partnering with them.


Why the New England Patriots Will Win: Tom Brady leads the NFL in passing yards. New England is going to have Brandin Cooks, Chris Hogan, Rob Gronkowski, Danny Amendola, Dwayne Allen, and Kenny Britt. With this many weapons I see New England at least scoring 35 on Pittsburgh. Tom Brady is 10-2 versus Pittsburgh in his career. Both of those losses came at Heinz Field.


Why the Pittsburgh Steelers Will Win: Tom Brady went 0/11 on third down conversions versus Miami. If Pittsburgh can duplicate what Miami did then they can win this game. Ben Roethlisberger is now second in the NFL in passing yards. With Ben Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell, and Antonio Brown all expected to play against this team in Pittsburgh. With JuJu Smith-Schuster and Martavis Bryant there is this sense that Pittsburgh is deeper as well. The pass rushing tandem of T.J. Watt and Bud Dupree may end up helping Pittsburgh win as well. Marcus Cannon, New England's starting right tackle got placed on season ending injured reserve. Cameron Sutton has stepped up for Joe Haden and it will be scary to see what Pittsburgh can do


Prediction: New England 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 57 points. I like Pittsburgh to win and cover with the over.


Final Score Steelers 41 Patriots 35 OT

Tanya Holmes Oren Shiri Jesse Lucas Jason Bantle


Dallas Cowboys 7-6-0
Versus
Oakland Raiders 6-7-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


The Dallas Cowboys are now 36-26 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.




Here is this weeks advice from Bill Lumbergh.

Hey Dak Prescott. What's happening? If you can beat the Raiders to keep us in the hunt that would be great.


Why the Dallas Cowboys Will Win: Dallas won't have Ezekiel Elliott until next week. I feel llke their offense will struggle against Oakland. Aamari Cooper is inactive.


Why the Oakland Raiders Will Win: Dallas has been extremely suspect with their secondary. Derek Carr should end up having a monster game. Expect Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree to dominate in this game.


Prediction: Dallas 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 46 points. I think Dallas wins and covers with the over.

Atlanta Falcons 8-5-0
Versus
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 4-9-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


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 Tampa Bay.


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

Madden: Jameis Winston will steal more crab legs. Falcons win and Winston steals crab legs to cope with his defeat. At least he has legs. You can't say the same about Carson Wentz.

Filiponi: Atlanta wins don't be a dick to Carson Wentz.

Pompieni: Yeah Mark, don't be a dick to Wentz. Tonights game is brought to you by Joe's Crab Shack.

Madden: Tonights game is sponsored by Pirates Of The Carribean.

Pompieni: Alright tonights game is brought to you by Joe's Crab Shack and Pirates Of The Carribean. We'll be back with kickoff after these commercial messages.



Why the Atlanta Falcons Will Win: Atlanta will win this game. They are playing for a playoff spot and Tampa Bay is not.


Why the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Will Win: Tampa Bay may want to win against a rival in front of their home crowd. This is a revenge game for the coaching staff too.


Prediction: Atlanta enters as a 6 point favorite. The minimum bet is $220 dollars, the maximum bet is $260 dollars with the average gambler betting around $240 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47.5 points. I like Atlanta to win and cover with the over.
