Versus
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 5-10-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Week 16 is in the books. Tanya Holmes has been the overall leader since week 3. Everyone did well with four people going 12-4 and one person going 11-5. Tanya Holmes is 164-76 ahead by five games heading into the final week. I am 159-81 in second place, five games back. Jason Bantle maintained his one game lead over Oren Shiri going 12-4 in week 16 putting him at 154-86 on the year. Oren Shiri went 12-4 in week 16 and is now 153-87 on the year. Jesse Lucas is 150-90 on the year after going 11-5 with 16 games to go along wtih the 11 playoff games. Follow us on Twitter @DraftUtopia for more awesome content.


Why the Atlanta Falcons Will Win: Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan heads into Tampa Bay. This feels llke a meaningless game for both teams.


Why the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Will Win: Jameis Winston has more to play for to be completely honest. I feel like Tampa Bay will win this game in a landslide over Atlanta.


Prediction: Atlanta 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 50 points. I am going with Tampa Bay to win and to cover with the over.

Dallas Cowboys 9-6-0
Versus
New York Giants 5-10-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


The Dallas Cowboys are now 47-33 under Bill Lumbergh. Lumbergh enters year five 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. If Lumbergh can't right the ship, I'm open to making a new ficitional character the Cowboys GM.




Here is this weeks advice from Bill Lumbergh.

Hey Dak Prescott. What's happening? Let's just show up in January. This game is meaningless.


Why the Dallas Cowboys Will Win: Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott head into New York. I'm not sure how long Dallas will play their starters. I feel like they are more focused on a playoff game then this contest in New York.


Why the New York Giants Will Win: Eli Manning and Saquon Barkley just may do enough for New York to win this meaningless week 17 game. I feel like taking New York in an upset.


Prediction: New York 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 41.5 points. I am going with New York to win and to cover with the under.

Carolina Panthers 6-9-0

New Orleans Saints 13-2-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


The Draft Utopia podcast just needed 500 episodes to reach 200,000 listeners. When we get to 1,000,000 episodes we'll do a podcast on a cruise. Until then you just have to continue to tune in as Oren Shiri, Joseph Potter, Andrew Kermish, and myself torture your asses with sports discussions muhaha. We broke down a Holliday show for fun so check it out if you are into Holliday Stuff.


Why the Carolina Panthers Will Win: This game feels meaningless for both teams. Carolina has no Cam Newton. Drew Brees can sit this one out while Teddy Bridgewater gets the start.


Why the New Orleans Saints Will Win: Two words. Teddy Bridgewater time. Maybe Carolina can loan New Orleans a first round pick for one game lol. That's a savage thing to say.


Prediction: New Orleans enters as a 7.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $290 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 44.5 points. I am going with New Orleans to win and to cover with the under.

Chris Ransom's Pick


@CockyBelichick is my favorite Twitter user of all time. His twitter feed is that epic. He always inserts the #kisstherings hashtag and it is badass. I'm going to post his 5 best tweets on our site every week like David Letterman does with his top 10 jokes until the owner of this twitter feed requests I take them down because his tweets are that epic. Let's start with the top 5 Tweets from week 16 in the NFL.



So Saints > Circus Midgets > Patriots. Got it.




We got a first round bye while Pittsburgh has to rely on the Cleveland Browns. Nothing to be complaining about to be completely honest. #kisstherings.




Are we talking about Mike Freeman or Mike Tomlin? Seriously, this is sort of a legitimate question. #kisstherings.




Then why the fuck did you pass on his teammate Nick Chubb? Honestly, you guys kind of screwed up on that one. #kisstherings.




Wow what a savage way to end the 2018 NFL Regular season for New England after my previous comment about Nick Chubb. #kisstherings



Why the New York Jets Will Win: Sam Darnold heads into New England. I honestly feel like the New England Patriots will test Darnold to a degree on Sunday since they have to be eager about wanting to lock up a first round bye.


Why the New England Patriots Will Win: Tom Brady is money in New England. Also this is a home game for New England. Sam Darnold is not used to this type of environment so I love New England on Sunday.


Prediction: New England enters as a 13.5 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 54.5 points. I am going with New England to win and to cover with the under.

Jacksonville Jaguars 5-10-0
Versus
Houston Texans 10-5-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Our third 2019 MLS Mock Draft is now up. I also posted a 2019 MLS Draft Game. Feel free to check those out if you are into College Soccer and MLS Draft content. We updated the game from 25 players to 40 to prepare for the 2019 MLS Combine. I feel like this class isn't as deep as the 2018 MLS Draft, yet there may be better strikers in the first round. This draft is strong at forward and midfielder, but is not very top heavy at defense despite being another deep class of defenders. There are 4 goalies in my top 40 and three in my top 15. I've even set up my 2019 MLS Draft results page for next months MLS Super Draft.


Why the Jacksonville Jaguars Will Win: Blake Bortles is starting again. That's why Jacksonville has a chance.


Why the Houston Texans Will Win: Houston's defense dropped the ball against Philadelphia. They need to stay focused. I honestly won't be surprised if Jacksonville somehow finds a way to pull an upset in this game.


Prediction: Houston 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 54.5 points. I am going with Houston to win and Jacksonville to cover with the under.

Detroit Lions 5-10-0
Versus
Green Bay Packers 6-8-1


Chris Ransom's Pick


Our 2019 NFL Draft Game has our top one hundred forty posted. The new board on Fanspeak is also up. With Justin Herbert going back and Daniel Jones expected to declare, I may tweak our draft game as well as our Fanpseak board for after the regular season.


Why the Detroit Lions Will Win: Detroit goes into Green Bay. Matthew Stafford and Aaron Rodgers have their most meaningless regular season game to date. In fact this game is so pointless that we may get to see Matt Patricia gameplan against DeShone Kizer just for shits and giggles.


Why the Green Bay Packers Will Win: Aaron Rodgers. Why does Joe Buck sound like Mike McCarthy on Ambien? See how pointless these early games are. Bryan Bulaga returned in week 16 from his injury. I expect a high scoring contest, but Green Bay will find a way to prevail in what may be the most pointless game between these two teams since Matt Flynn had his breakout game versus the Lions quite some time ago.


Prediction: Green Bay enters as a 8 point favorite. The minimum bet is $310 dollars, the maximum bet is $370 dollars with the average gambler betting around $340 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 54.5 points. I am going with Green Bay to win and Detroit to cover with the over.

My friend Luis Tirado Jr. has some fantastic content over at The Jet Press. Check them out for more information on the Jets in 2018.You can check out US Football Tips our newest partner with us at Draft Utopia. Feel free to compare our point spreads to theirs.


Why the Miami Dolphins Will Win: Miami will probably move on from Ryan Tannehill. Honestly it feels like the Miami Dolphins are about to enter a brutal rebuild.


Why the Buffalo Bills Will Win: Josh Allen is capable of defeating Ryan Tannehill. This game still feels meaningless to a point though with both teams eliminated from the 2019 NFL Playoff Picture.


Prediction: Buffalo enters as a 3.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $160 dollars, the maximum bet is $180 dollars with the average gambler betting around $170 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 38.5 points. I am going with Buffalo to win and to cover with the over.

Arizona Cardinals 3-12-0
Versus
Seattle Seahawks 9-6-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


You can check out US Football Tips our newest partner with us at Draft Utopia. Feel free to compare our point spreads to theirs.

Why the Arizona Cardinals Will Win: Arizona just needs to lose this game to secure the top pick. Josh Rosen and Larry Fitzgerald may break out in this game.


Why the Seattle Seahawks Will Win: Seattle has home field. Their momentum is through the roof right now and that's one reason why I love Seattle in this game.


Prediction: Seattle enters as a 13.5 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 39.5 points. I am going with Seattle to win and to cover with the over.

San Francisco 49ers 4-11-0
Versus

Chris Ransom's Pick


Check out Rams Showcase hosted by Joe Branham on Spreaker. Tonight they preview the 49ers VS Rams game.


Listen to "Rams Showcase" on Spreaker.




Why the San Francisco 49ers Will Win: Joe Staley and Mike McGlinchey can pass block effectively. That is the one and only reason why the San Francisco 49ers have a chance.


Why the Los Angeles Rams Will Win: Jared Goff and Todd Gurley need this win to secure a first round bye in the NFC. I expect the Rams to give San Francisco hell for this reason alone.


Prediction: Los Angeles enters as a 14 point favorite. The minimum bet is $400 dollars, the maximum bet is $500 dollars with the average gambler betting around $450 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 50 points. I am going with Los Angeles to win and to cover with the under.

Los Angeles Chargers 11-4-0
Versus
Denver Broncos 6-9-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I went to Rivers Casino for fun this week. Spoiler Alert this is one of my upsets for week 17.


Why the Los Angeles Chargers Will Win: Los Angeles is going to be the five seed no matter what unless the Raiders somehow manage to invade Kansas City by defeating the Chiefs. Even then, that would only lead to New England getting home field in the AFC as a result. Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram can get pressure on Case Keenum.


Why the Denver Broncos Will Win: Von Miller and Bradley Chubb can also get pressure on Philip Rivers. Philip Lindsay will find a way to get 100 rushing yards on the ground. Denver has the personel to defeat the Los Angeles Chargers and ruin their draft position in the process.


Prediction: Los Angeles enters as a 6.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $400 dollars, the maximum bet is $500 dollars with the average gambler betting around $450 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 41.5 points. I am going with Denver to win and to cover with the under.

Chris Ransom's Pick


Check out D.J. Chuck. Aka Tracy Porter from the Draft Utopia podcast. He does his own radio show on Spreaker that's worth a listen.


Listen to "Dj Chuck" on Spreaker.


Why the Philadelphia Eagles Will Win: Nick Foles heads to Washington. Philadelphia is playing for a playoff spot while Wasington isn't.


Why the Washington Redskins Will Win: Washington is 1-1 with Josh Johnson. There is a chance Washington goes out and gets a quarterback in Free Agency or the 2019 NFL Draft.


Prediction: Philadelphia 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 am going with Philadelphia to win and Washington to cover with the under.

Cincinnati Bengals 6-9-0
Versus
Pittsburgh Steelers 8-6-1


Chris Ransom's Pick


Pittsburgh is the lock of the week. In fact, I am so confident in Pittsburgh winning I do not even want to acknowledge Cincinnati with Andy Dalton and A.J. Green injured.


Why the Cincinnati Bengals Will Win: Cincinnati has no chance of winning this game even though I'd gladly gamble $70 dollars away to watch the Bengals end Pittsburgh's season only to say Worth It like Paul Giamatti on Billions when Pittsburgh misses the playoffs. Also I'm so confident in Pittsburgh that I'm going to personally Venmo Jason Bantle our die hard Bengals fan money if Cincinnati wins because I'm fed up with Steelers fans never admitting their opponents outplay them. I'm also disgusted with the fact that Steelers fans get more depressed then Browns fans when they miss the playoffs or do other fun engaging things to cope with their depression.


Why the Pittsburgh Steelers Will Win: I love Pittsburgh this week. In fact my plan is to go to Rivers Casino to profit off of the Steelers. Basically I'm going to put the city of Pittsburgh in a precarious position and give them an ultimatum for my own entertainment simply due to how much I despise Steelers fans who refuse to admit when their opponents outplay them.
Sure, I may be a Patriots fan, but Pittsburgh outplayed us in the Steelers previous encounter at Heinz Field and I'm even gracious enough to admit that which makes me more insightful then your average Pittsburgher. Basically Steeler fans who are in my inner circle along with media members like Nicholas Martin and Shane Hallam get preferential treatment over other bandwagon fans who just who shall remain nameless simply due to the fact that they are bandwagon fans. Most of my HS classmates who shall remain nameless are bandwagon fans. In fact the last time Pittsburgh had a losing record it felt very quiet like a Black and Yellow Scooby Doo Ghost Town which is what Joseph Potter the Browns fan on my podcast and myself are both pushing for agenda wise as far as Pittsburgh goes. I believe the last time the Steelers had a losing record, I was in Mr. Datillo's History class when they went 6-10 in a prelude to Tommy Maddox retiring.


Basically my plan to end Pittsburgh's playoff streak is to profit off of the Steeler Nation for my own entertainment. I'm not sure if my plan will work, but I'm willing to give it a shot because the way I see it I lose money to watch the Steelers miss the playoffs or I profit off Pittsburgh for my own entertainment thus providing some capital to keep Draft Utopia up and running.


Prediction: Pittsburgh enters as a 14.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $700 dollars, the maximum bet is $1,100 dollars with the average gambler betting around $900 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 45.5 points. I am going with Pittsburgh to win and to cover with the under.

Minnesota Vikings 8-6-1


Chris Ransom's Pick


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 Crimson Tide

    Alabama is the defending champion. Nick Saban is once again the biggest pimp in College Football.





  2. Clemson Tigers

    At #2 we have the Clemson Tigers. Clemson beat Alabama to win the 2017 College Football Playoff. Alabama beat Clemson in the Semifinals of the 2018 College Football Playoff.





  3. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

    Notre Dame has their best defense since 2013. The Catholic Church and the Pied Piper have a lot to be excited about when it comes to Notre Dame Football. Yahoo man!





  4. Central Florida Golden Knights

    Central Florida had a perfect season in 2017 and 2018 despite missing the 2018 College Football Playoff. Central Florida went perfect once again. College Football's Playoff Committee is basically like Goodfella's at this point. Fuck you POWER 5. Fuck you POWER 5! You're not in a power 5 conference fuck you and your university. That's the only reason Oklahoma is in the College Football Playoff. That being said, if Oklahoma beats Alabama I will do a post playoff rankings for my own amusement during our wild card predictions page next week.






Why the Chicago Bears Will Win: Chicago basically has the NFC North locked up. Their defense is better then Minnesota. At the same time, Minnesota has to win to make the 2019 NFL Playoffs.


Why the Minnesota Vikings Will Win: Minnesota Vikings. Kirk Cousins is better then Mitchell Trubisky. However, I'd also argue that Trubisky has the superior coach that plays to his strengths in Matt Nagy while Chicago just has a stronger defensive personnel.


Prediction: Minnesota enters as a 5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $210 dollars, the maximum bet is $250 dollars with the average gambler betting around $230 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 40.5 points. I am going with Minnesota to win and to cover with the under.

Oakland Raiders 4-11-0
Versus
Kansas City Chiefs 11-4-0


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 14-2

    Mitch Pabst owner of Brees Nutz repeated as BFFL Champion. He became the first Fantasy football owner to repeat as Bantle Bowl Champion. What was even more impressive was that brees Nutz accomplished this even after relinquishing Drew Brees.






  2. The Chosen Ones 14-2

    Our league commissioner has a very lethal roster. Despite finishing second. I'd argue that Jason Bantle is the front runner to win next season.






  3. Team Mouserat 8-8

    Mark drafted a really good team featuring Julio Jones, Saquon Barkley, and Odell Beckham Jr. The most amazing thing about his fantasy team is that he still captured third place in the BFFL despite going 8-8. Mark Sciubba is the first BFFL owner to ever capture third place with a .500 team. Like if Mark can get a decent qb in the draft he's got a great shot to make something happen next season.






  4. Gangster Squad 11-4

    My plan to draft a playoff caliber squad backfired. However, I'd like to argue that I'll have a strong contender for 2019 if I use my two keepers on Drew Brees and Matt Ryan in our two quarterback league while continuing to reload my squad with stock position players. That's really the only way I have a shot at winning the championship next season. I put together a strong team this year, but my plan was to build a squad that could contend in 2018 and 2019. My plan worked because I made the playoffs, and still amassed a roster talented enough to maintain for next season.






  5. Taco Corp 6-8

    Taco Corp defeated TD Sprinkles in the meaningless fifth place Biggest Loser Bowl to go .500.





  6. TD Sprinkles 7-9

    Sorry Jimmy Dicken you did not go .500 so Sprinkles are for winners. You lost a meaningless fifth place game to Taco Corp.






  7. Avengers 7-9

    What do Marvel's Avengers and TD Sprinkles have in common? Both teams did not sprinkle enough wins. Now Flow from Progressive can form her own super team of Avengers to combat the Marvel Avengers because she feels like it muhaha!






  8. H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes 4-12

    H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes has dealt with some injuries this season. Injuries are the only reason this team finished in the top 8. You could also argue that injuries to key players screwed this team out of a playoff run. Then again you could say that about any other team.






  9. Car RamRod 3-11

    Andrew Kermish one of the co hosts from our podcast is 3-11. Way to avoid the sacko. Also its worth pointing out that Kerm can use a first round keeper on Ezekiel Elliott next season, but would also relinquish the second pick in the draft as a result. I'm hoping like hell to tempt the Kerminator into Kerminating his first round draft pick.






  10. RES Express 2-12

    Riley, the owner of RES Express is replacing Anti Bantle in the league. I'm not sure what Anti Bantle did to upset the rest of the league, but its not my business to comment on. I thought Riley had the worst draft of any of the leagues owners. Riley managed to best my 1-13 record good job Riley.






  11. Why the Oakland Raiders Will Win: Oakland got Derek Carr. Jon Gruden may decide to outplay the Chiefs and win this game just to screw Raider Nation out of a top 5 draft pick. Kansas City has been on a cold streak to end the year. I could see Gruden trolling Kansas City and playing well enough to cover the point spread just for the hell of it. Kansas City has not been the same team since Kareem Hunt's incident.


    Why the Kansas City Chiefs Will Win: Kansas City has home field in this game. Unlike Oakland, they have a much bigger reason for winning. I believe Patrick Mahomes will do just enough to defeat Oakland. However, I'd also argue that Oakland will find a way to play well enough to cover the spread so the NFL can continue to push their Las Vegas Raiders agenda all while making money off of Kansas City Chiefs fans who bet big on Oakland.


    Prediction: Kansas City enters as a 13.5 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 52.5 points. I am going with Kansas City to win and to Oakland cover with the over.

    Cleveland Browns 7-7-1
    Versus
    Baltimore Ravens 9-6-0


    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 Baltimore.


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

    Madden: Fuck the Browns. Fuck the Ravens known as the former Browns. Fuck Art Modell. I'm gonna take shots at both of the Steelers rival teams because I can.

    Filiponi: No you can't. With Pittsburgh becoming the PC Capital of America, Political correctness is now the law.

    Pompieni: Even though the Founding Fathers would agree with Mark Madden, I say to hell with the Founding Fathers because most Pittsburgher's would rather update the terms and conditions of the constitution by putting the North Allegheny Code Of Conduct before what Thomas Jefferson and Benjajmin Franklin taught us. Times are changing Mark Madden. You can either get on board or I'll say something snarky like don't forget to bring a terrible towl.

    Madden: What about ammendments? We're just gonna repeal them and turn the United States Of America into a childrens card game based on the NA Code Of Conduct. Screw that. Screw Baker Mayfield for being the false prophet of the Cleveland Browns and screw Lamar Jackson for taking Joe Flacco's starting job from a former Pitt Panther who transferred to Delaware.

    Filiponi: Wouldn't saying screw Lamar Jackson constitute as discrimination? I'm only asking strictly out of curiosity Bob because I would like to be informed on the new laws of hate speech that are going viral in Pittsburgh.

    Pompieni: I believe it would Andrew. So this afternoons game is brought to you by Art Modell. Only the ghost of Art Modell can help Steeler Nation squeeze their way to another AFC North Title by a landslide.

    Madden: Screw Art Modell. May that corrupt asshole who robbed the Browns of a franchise rot in hell. See you guys in 2019 where we will try to be more PC because I know for a fact the Founding Fathers would not approve of us disabling the first ammendment.

    Pompieni: Jimmeny Cricket it Madden. Watch your language.





    Why the Cleveland Browns Will Win: Baker Mayfield and Lamar Jackson are both going to ball the f out. Here is what I mean. This is the first meeting between both quarterbacks since they both were Heisman finalists a year ago. Also this game has status on the AFC North Division.


    Why the Baltimore Ravens Will Win: The fate of the Steelers season rests on Baker Mayfield. Will the ghost of Art Modell finally atone for his sins by bailing the Steelers out? If that's what the NFL's planning, I'll call the league out on it. The NFL loves the Steelers and its so blatantly biased that I'm cool with paying a fine only to watch Lamar Jackson get his revenge on Baker Mayfield for last years Heisman only to watch Lamar Jackson go War Machine on this Browns defense only to screw Pittsburgh out of the playoffs.


    Prediction: Baltimore enters as a 5.5 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 41 points. I am going with Cleveland to win and to cover with the over.

    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 Tennessee.


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

    Madden: At least Andrew Luck versus Marcus Mariota is somewhat entertaining. I mean both of these teams are 9-6 and both PAC 12 quarterbacks are fighting to the death to ensure their teams are in the running for the final wild card in the AFC.

    Filiponi: So we now have to regulate the NFL to ensure the safety of the league. Great.

    Pompieni: This game is brought to you by Nissan. Nissan the official sponsor for the final wild card in the AFC.

    Madden: This game is also sponsored by the PAC 12 Network.

    Filiponi: The PAC 12 Network. Let's make money off of Student Athletes only to delete Youtube Channels and NFL Film Cuts because we're that west coast.





    Why the Indianapolis Colts Will Win: Andrew Luck heads into Tennessee hoping to get the Colts back to the playoffs.


    Why the Tennessee Titans Will Win: Tennessee matches up well against Indianapolis. Honestly I feel like predicting a tie just for the heck of it.


    Prediction: Indianapolis enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $155 dollars, the maximum bet is $175 dollars with the average gambler betting around $165 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 43 points. I am going with a tie and the over because I feel like ending the season with a bang.
