2020 NFL Week 15 Predictions



The Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints face off in what may be a Super Bowl 55 Preview. Can Alvin Kamara control the clock? Will Drew Brees play?





Chris Ransom Last Updated: December 17, 2020.



Los Angeles Chargers 4-9-0
Versus
Las Vegas Raiders 7-6-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Heading into week 15 I now have 145 games correct on the year and have a three game lead over first place. Matt Bowen of ESPN now has second place with 142 games correct on the year. Oren Shiri of Draft Utopia and Mina Kimes of ESPN both now have 141 games correct on the year. Jason Bantle of Draft Utopia has moved into the top 5 with a 14-2 week 15, after entering week 14 with only 125 games correct on the year putting Bantle at 139 tied Jamey Eisenberg of CBS, and ESPN's Jason Reid for those final spots in the top 5.


I went 12-4 and had a bounce back week. I'm now 145-63 on the year with a 69.7 pickem percentage on the year which is best in the country edging out `Bowen's 68.3 pickem percentage. Oren went 10-6 in week 14 making him 141-67 on the year. Jason Bantle went 14-2 in week 14 as mentioned in the previous paragraph and is 139-69 on the year only two games back of Oren now. Jesse Lucas went 10-6 and is 133-75 on the year. Tanya Holmes went 10-6 in week 14 making her 125-83 on the year.


Why the Los Angeles Chargers Will Win: The Chargers may be eliminated from the playoff hunt. They could put up a fight for two reasons. One Anthony Lynn may save his job with wins over a division rival down the stretch because all of the Chargers AFC west losses were by single digits. Two Justin Herbert wants to win offensive rookie of the year, and beating all three AFC west opponents that Herbert lost to earlier in the season would be icing on the cake for Herbert.


Why the Las Vegas Raiders Will Win: Derek Carr has his offense back at full health. This team still scored 27 points on a Colts defense that is ranked in the top 10 in pass defense and run defense despite losing at home. Derek Carr also has Josh Jacobs back at running back. You got Kolton Miller at left tackle, Ritchie Incognito at left guard, Rodney Hudson at center, Gabe Jackson at right guard, and Trent Brown at right tackle. Wide receivers like Henry Ruggs III and Hunter Renfrow can pose a threat. You also got Darren Waller at tight end.


Prediction: Las Vegas enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $105 dollars, the maximum bet is $115 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 53.5. Right now 58% of the betting action is on Las Vegas at -3. I like Las Vegas to win and Los Angeles to cover with the under.


Final Score Raiders 24 Chargers 23

Buffalo Bills 10-3-0
Versus
Denver Broncos 5-8-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Draft Utopia airs on Talkshoe and Anchor now. We have a weekly show on Anchor that airs weekdays as well as our usual weekend show on Talkshoe. The Draft Utopia podcast just exceeded 226,150 listeners on Talkshoe while our podcast on Anchor is monetized.




Why the Buffalo Bills Will Win: John Elway was looking at Josh Allen coming out of Wyoming. Josh Allen wants to make Elway look foolish for passing on him. He's got receivers like Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley, and Gabriel Davis who will have no problem carving Denver since their cornerback situation is just as bad as Pittsburgh without Joe Haden.


Why the Denver Broncos Will Win: Buffalo doesn't have a strong offensive line, but Denver does not have Ju'Wuan James at right tackle, Von Miller off the edge, or Courtland Sutton at wide receiver. Drew Lock doesn't have the same firepower on offense that Ben Roethlisberger had. Buffalo held Pittsburgh to 15 points with their entire defense at full health in that game. If Denver's interior offensive line with left guard Dalton Risner, center Lloyd Cushenbery III, and right guard Graham Glasgow can run block and neutralize Buffalo's defensive tackles in passing situations, then Denver can control the clock and limit Buffalo's offensive production. That's the only way Denver can pull the upset to save their season.


Prediction: Buffalo enters as a 6 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 49.5. Right now 68% of the betting action is on Buffalo at -6. Take Buffalo to win and cover with the under.


Final Score Bills 30 Broncos 13

Carolina Panthers 4-9-0
Versus
Green Bay Packers 10-3-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I need to update Tony Mario's NFL Power Rankings when I get the chance. His previous rankings are in the link below. NFL Power Rankings.


Why the Carolina Panthers Will Win: Carolina could be getting Christian McCaffrey and D.J. Moore back this week. They can make this game close, but I'm not sure it will be enough to pull the upset.


Why the Green Bay Packers Will Win: Since Carolina beat Arizona back in week 4, they can still get the 7 seed if they win out and Arizona loses out. Green Bay already has a top 3 seed and just needs to win out in order to get home field. Aaron Rodgers should carve Carolina's defense, but something tells me this will be a defensive game since Carolina has one more shot not to completely screw up which is why this game will be close with Mason Crosby winning it on a last second game-winning field goal. DaVante Adams has the size advantage over Donte Jackson and the rest of Carolina's defensive backs outside of Jackson are suspect. That's why I love Aaron Rodgers in this matchup.


Prediction: Green Bay enters as a 9 point favorite. The minimum bet is $320 dollars, the maximum bet is $400 dollars with the average gambler betting around $360 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 51.5. Right now 64% of the betting action is on Green Bay at -9. I like Green Bay to win and Carolina to cover with the under.

San Francisco 49ers 5-8-0
Versus
Dallas Cowboys 4-9-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


The Dallas Cowboys finally parted ways with fictional GM Bill Lumberg who went 1-2 in his career as GM in the playoffs. Hank Hill from King of the Hill and assistant GM and Director Of College Scouting Dale Gribble are 4-9 since taking over for Lumberg.




Here is this weeks hot take from Hank Hill.

Alright Cowboys huddle up! Aikman, Emmitt, and Irvin kicked the 49ers ass in the 90's and now I need you gentlemen to do the same.





Why the San Francisco 49ers Will Win: Kyle Shanahan swept the Rams. Dallas has one of the leagues worst run defenses which is probably why San Francisco is favored for the third week in a row by Vegas oddsmakers.


Why the Dallas Cowboys Will Win: Dallas can still win the NFC East with the easiest strength of schedule among the remaining NFC East teams. That's why I expect Dallas to fight hard in this contest.


Prediction: San Francisco enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $105 dollars, the maximum bet is $115 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 45. Right now 54% of the betting action is on San Francisco at -3. I like Dallas to win and to cover with the over.


Final Score Cowboys 28 49ers 21

Seattle Seahawks 9-4-0

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 Seattle Seahawks Will Win: Russell Wilson heads to Washington. D.C. not the state of Washington to face the Football Team. Wide receivers Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf can exploit these corners.


Why the Washington Football Team Will Win: Washington's defensive line is good enough to create turnovers and limit how much time Russell Wilson has in the pocket.


Prediction: Seattle enters as a 5.5 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 44.5. Right now 59% of the betting action is on Seattle at -5.5. Take Seattle to win and cover with the under.

Chicago Bears 6-7-0
Versus
Minnesota Vikings 6-7-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Draft Utopia now has an E-Commerce Store on Teespring. Click on the word Teespring to be redirected to our shop to buy Draft Utopia merchandise.


Why the Chicago Bears Will Win: Chicago heads to Minnesota. This is a win or go home game for both teams. Chicago has a defense that can make things difficult for Minnesota's offense. Roquan Smith needs to play like he did in Houston against Minnesota if Chicago wants to pull the upset.


Why the Minnesota Vikings Will Win: Minnesota basically has to win out for any shot at the final wild card spot. Dalvin Cook can dominate on the ground and will be a vocal point for Minnesota's offense. Wide receivers Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson can pick apart Chicago's corners. Even if the Bears stop Cook, Kirk Cousins will find a way to get the job done at home since Trubisky relied on his weapons to win that game, plus Minnesota's defense is a stronger defense than Houston's.


Prediction: Minnesota enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $110 dollars, the maximum bet is $190 dollars with the average gambler betting around $150 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47. Right now 54% of the betting action is on Chicago at +3. Take Minnesota to win and cover with the over.

New England Patriots 6-7-0
Versus
Miami Dolphins 8-5-0


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. Recently, @CockyBelichick, changed his username to @BelichickMethod. Let's start with the top 5 Tweets heading into week 15.



She said bar exam. Hahaha!




Hahaha! I agree with you though.




It's pretty easy to score on the Browns with Denzel Ward out. That was a clutch throw since their secondary is in shambles without Denzel Ward, Greedy Williams, and Grant Delpit.




So is cocaine according to Dave Chappelle. Yeah, what, OK!




NFL is conducting an investigation about Rob Kraft purchasing a Chinese Meth Lab for staff and players on the New England Patriots.



Why the New England Patriots Will Win: New England has cornerbacks that can limit what Miami does offensively. I just don't trust Cam Newton against Miami's defense after struggling big time against the Los Angeles Rams.


Why the Miami Dolphins Will Win: Miami usually beats New England at home. Belichick beat Fitzpatrick in week 1 at Gillette Stadium, but this is a much different Miami Dolphins team with Tua Tagovailoa at quarterback, an up and coming offensive line, and a strong defense.


Prediction: Miami enters as a 2 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 41.5. Right now 64% of the betting action is on Miami at -2. Take Miami to win and cover with the under.

Jacksonville Jaguars 1-12-0
Versus
Baltimore Ravens 8-5-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Joseph Potter, the co-host of my podcast relaunched Draft Evolution. Check them out.


Why the Jacksonville Jaguars Will Win: Jacksonville is starting Gardner Minshew II again. That's why Jacksonville may score some points.


Why the Baltimore Ravens Will Win: Baltimore is playing on a short week. Lamar Jackson dominated on Monday Night Football. Even without Ronnie Stanley this team stepped up offensively.


Prediction: Baltimore enters as a 13 point favorite. The minimum bet is $540 dollars, the maximum bet is $780 dollars with the average gambler betting around $660 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47.5. Right now 91% of the betting action is on Baltimore at -13. Take Baltimore to win and cover with the over.

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


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 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Will Win: Tom Brady has weapons like Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Antonio Brown at wide receiver. You also have Rob Gronkowski, Cameron Brate, and O.J. Howard at tight end. Atlanta has a good secondary, but Tampa Bay simply has too much depth and too many weapons.


Why the Atlanta Falcons Will Win: Matt Ryan struggled without Julio Jones. Atlanta could be motivated to pull the upset if he returns, but I doubt that's the case. Raheem Morris also used to be the head coach of Tampa Bay before being Atlanta's interim head coach, so you could argue this is a revenge game for Morris. That will have Atlanta motivated to win this game.


Prediction: Tampa Bay enters as a 6 point favorite. The minimum bet is $225 dollars, the maximum bet is $275 dollars with the average gambler betting around $250 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 50.5. Right now 69% of the betting action is on Tampa Bay at -6. Take Tampa Bay to win and cover with the under.

Detroit Lions 5-8-0
Versus
Tennessee Titans 9-4-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I posted a film cut of Nevada quarterback Carson Strong VS UNLV. Carson Strong dominated this game in Allegiant Stadium.




Why the Detroit Lions Will Win: Detroit doesn't have Jeffrey Okudah. I honestly don't see Detroit winning this game.


Why the Tennessee Titans Will Win: Tennessee has too many weapons. Weapons like running back Derrick Henry, wide receiver A.J. Brown, and wide receiver Corey Davis. Desmond Trufant and Amani Oruwariye can contain these receivers if they cover well, but that won't stop Derrick Henry from running wild.


Prediction: Tennessee enters as a 11 point favorite. The minimum bet is $400 dollars, the maximum bet is $600 dollars with the average gambler betting around $500 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 51.5. Right now 68% of the betting action is on Tennessee at -11. I like Tennessee to win and Detroit to cover with the under.

I've been uploading film to our Youtube Channel for the 2021 NFL Draft. We're even incorporating that film into our mock drafts. If you do film cut ups, add me on Twitter @DraftUtopia and message me. I'm also posting full College Games On Bitchute.


Why the Houston Texans Will Win: Houston heads to Indianapolis. It will be much tougher this time around in Lucas Oil Stadium for Houston after they kept this game close in the first meeting.


Why the Indianapolis Colts Will Win: Philip Rivers at quarterback and Jonathan Taylor at running back dominated against the Las Vegas Raiders. These two should dominate against the Houston Texans. Left tackle Anthony Castonzo did not play against the Texans in the first meeting. Indianapolis will also have Quinton Nelson, Ryan Kelly, Mark Glowinski, and Braden Smith are on the offensive line.


Prediction: Indianapolis 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 51. Right now 69% of the betting action is on Indianapolis at -7. Take Indianapolis to win and cover with the over.

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.


Bill Clinton's College Football Playoff Selection Special



  1. Alabama Crimson Tide

    Alabama wants revenge on Clemson for what happened two years ago. Nick Saban is the biggest pimp in College Football once again now that Dabo Swinney lost to Notre Dame.





  2. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

    Notre Dame is playing in the ACC Temporarily. Ian Book can learn a lot by facing good defenses in the ACC.





  3. Clemson Tigers

    Clemson has been to two championships with Trevor Lawrence. Trevor Lawrence missed the last two games with Covid-19. He should be back for Clemson as the Tigers hope to win out. Yahoo Man!





  4. Ohio State Buckeyes

    With the Big 10 officially ending their strike. Ohio State is number four in the polls and no longer Kevin Warren's bitch as the Big 10 commissioner finally came to his senses.






Why the Philadelphia Eagles Will Win: Jalen Hurts won his first start against New Orleans. He faces an Arizona team that has Patrick Peterson and Byron Murphy at cornerback. Miles Sanders will need to run the football at will in order for Jalen Hurts to win again.


Why the Arizona Cardinals Will Win: Kyler Murray got back to playing smart and avoiding turnovers. Wide receivers like DeAndre Hopkins, Larry Fitzgerald, Christian Kirk, and Andy Isabella will overwhelm this defense. `Darius Slay struggled against Michael Thomas despite the Eagles win. Hopkins will make things a lot more difficult.


Prediction: Arizona enters as a 6.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $210 dollars, the maximum bet is $270 dollars with the average gambler betting around $240 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 49.5. Right now 64% of the betting action is on Philadelphia at +6.5. Take Arizona to win and cover with the over.

Why the New York Jets Will Win: Sam Darnold may not have Jameson Crowder as a target to throw to on Sunday. The Los Angeles Rams have one of the leagues best defenses so Darnold will have his hands full.


Why the Los Angeles Rams Will Win: The Los Angeles Rams outplayed the New England Patriots on both sides of the ball. Los Angeles should have an even easier time against the New York Jets.


Prediction: Los Angeles enters as a 17.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $900 dollars, the maximum bet is $1,500 dollars with the average gambler betting around $1,200 dollars on this game.

Kansas City Chiefs 12-1-0
Versus
New Orleans Saints 10-3-0


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. Kerryon My Wayward Son 13-1

    Riley, the owner of RES Express rebranded his team as Kerryon My Wayward Son after replacing Anti-Bantle two years ago. This team started 1-0 last year too and was third behind H.B. Vinegar's Strokes and myself a year ago. This time they had 194.76 points thanks to having Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers at quarterback in a two quarterback league. Wilson and Rodgers were the top fantasy performers at quarterback in week 1. They beat Millenial Menace in week 2. They defeated my team in week 3 despite entering the week as underdogs. They defeated H.B. Vinegar's Strokes in week 4 and won two games that they were projected to lose. Kerryon My Wayward Son is 13-1 and faces my team after beating my squad earlier in the regular season.






  2. The Chosen Ones 11-3

    Our league commissioner lost Bantle Bowl I to Jimmy before winning Bantle Bowl II against Jimmy. He made it to Bantle Bowl IV two years ago and lost to Mitch. He made it to Bantle Bowl V where he lost to Mitch again before defeating him in this years season opener. Jason defeated my team in week 2 and H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes, who had the leagues best record a year ago. Jason defeated all three playoff teams from last year in the first three weeks and managed to get off to an 8-2 start. Jason swept my team which was injured to improve to 9-2 on the year. Jason improved to 10-2 before losing to Team Mouserat. Jason Bantle's team, the Chosen One's is 11-3 and officially has the 2 seed secured. Last year, Jason beat Heath as the 4 seed.






  3. H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes 8-6

    H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes began the year with 204.24 points putting up a clinic against the Avengers. Not even the Justice League could help Avengers deal with this team. Heath used a keeper on Alvin Kamara his signature player from last season before drafting DaVante Adams in the second round who had a mind boggling 41.6 fantasy points in week 1 before missing week 3 with an injury. H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes is now second in the league in scoring after getting swept by my team last week. Avengers is also favored to beat H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes. A win gets Avengers in the playoffs. Heath gets a playoff rematch with Jason Bantle after losing to Jason as the top seed last year.



  4. Previous Rank 4th




  5. Gangster Squad 8-6

    This team started 1-4 and won five in a row to get to 6-4 before losing to Jason again and Mitch in an upset. Gangster Squad won two in a row to end the year. I run this Fantasy Team and this team is currently favored to beat Kerryon My Wayward Son, the top seed in this years BFFL Playoffs. The 4 seed is 3-2 in the five Bantle Bowls when playing the 1 seed. Another fun fact is every team that knocked me out of the playoffs in the four years I went to the BFFL Playoffs went on to win Bantle Bowl Jimmy with Bantle Bowl 1, Jason with Bantle Bowl II, and Mitch with both Bantle Bowl IV along with Bantle Bowl V.



  6. Previous Rank 5th




  7. Team Mouserat 8-6

    Mark got the 4 seed two years ago. Mark went 8-6 on the year and was points away from knocking me out of the four seed. Mark has Cam Akers and Justin Jefferson two rookies he can use keepers on next season.



  8. Previous Rank 3rd




  9. Car RamRod 7-7

    Andrew Kermish one of the co hosts from our podcast is 7-7. Kerm is doing better than the Dallas Cowboys who happen to be his favorite NFL team. Car RamRod handed Kerryon My Wayward Son their first loss of the year in week 8. Andrew had his best fantasy season in years so he should be proud of going 8-6. Kerm can use keepers on both Ezekiel Elliott and Josh Jacobs so this team should be back in the running next season.






  10. Millenial Menace 6-8

    Barenaked Ladies needs to sue the owner of Millenial Menace for copyright infrindgement. Still this logo is less offensive than the Washington Redskins logo. Millenial Menace is ranked seventh in the league despite using copyright infrindgement on one of the best bands from the 90's with Barenaked Nadies who had hit songs like One Week and It's All Been Done from their Stunt album in 1998. This team could end up using keepers on quarterbacks Deshaun Watson in the second round and wide receiver Christian Kirk in the seventeenth round.






  11. Avengers 3-11

    Avengers made Bantle Bowl III. They also draft well in 2020, but cut guys like Drew Lock, Justin Tucker, and Zach Ertz. Avengers can use a first round keeper on Patrick Mahomes, but with running back options like Derrick Henry, Christian McCaffrey, Alvin Kamara, and Dalvin Cook, I doubt they use a keeper on Mahomes in the first round. I'm guessing Avengers will either use a second round keeper on Chris Godwin or a fourth round keeper on Keenan Allen with their fourteenth round keeper on quarterback Justin Herbert.





  12. Brees Nutz 3-11

    Mitch Pabst owner of Brees Nutz became the first owner to three peat as Bantle Bowl Champion winning Bantle Bowl III, IV, and V. This 3-11 team is probably going to use a ninth round keeper on Jarvis Landry and a tenth round keeper on Baker Mayfield. They could also use a second round keeper on Julio Jones, a fourth round keeper on Todd Gurley if he re-signs with the Falcons, or a seventh round keeper on Tyler Boyd. Mitch has until the Summer to decide with a lot of possibilities to explore.





  13. Taco Corp 3-11

    Taco Corp does not look like a playoff team on paper. Taco Corp had another bad draft, and I think their season is over. They are now tenth in the league standings. Taco Corp will probably use a second round keeper on Nick Chubb. The only other player worthy of a keeper on this god awful roster is James Conner who may be worthy of a sixth round pick.






Why the Kansas City Chiefs Will Win: Eric Fisher and Mike Remmers did not practice at offensive tackle due to back injuries. Starting right tackle Mitchell Schwartz is out. Kansas City will win this game though if Drew Brees is out with an injury. Chris Jones and Derrick Nnadi have been able to get through teams with weak interior offensive lines to stop the run and pressure the opposing quarterback. New Orleans has a strong offensive line, but if Taysom Hill is starting instead of Drew Brees, then Kansas City should win this game.


Why the New Orleans Saints Will Win: Drew Brees practiced on Wednesday, but Sean Payton said we're not rushing Drew Brees back sending mixed signals with the quarterback play. If he plays I'm taking the Saints to upset Kansas City. If he sits this one out then I'll pick Kansas City to win. Michael Thomas didn't practice on Wednesday due to an ankle injury. Alvin Kamara will need to run the football and control the clock like Josh Jacobs did when Las Vegas traveled to Kansas City in order for New Orleans to win. New Orleans will have Terron Armstead at let tackle, Andrus Peat at left guard, Erik McCoy at center, Cesar Ruiz at right guard, and Ryan Ramcyzk at right tackle blocking for Kamara who faces a run defense that ranks twenty sixth in the NFL.


Prediction: Kansas City enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $105 dollars, the maximum bet is $115 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 51.5. Right now 62% of the betting action is on Kansas City at -3. I like New Orleans to win and to cover with the over.

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 Cleveland Browns Will Win: Baker Mayfield is going to unleash his wrath on the New York Giants after that heartbreaking loss to Baltimore. Nick Chubb should dominate on the ground as well.


Why the New York Giants Will Win: New York put up an impressive season for a team dinged up with injuries. The New York Giants need to win this Sunday Night Game to have any shot at the NFC East Division. Freddy Kitchens is going to be the offensive coordinator with Jason Garrett testing positive for Covid-19. Also Colt McCoy is starting at quarterbck instead of Daniel Jones.


Prediction: Cleveland enters as a 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.

Pittsburgh Steelers 11-2-0

Cincinnati Bengals 2-10-1


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, Andrew Filiponi, and newcommer Rich Walsh. Tonight the gang is in Cincinnati.


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

Madden: Remember when I said fuck the Cowboys and fuck the Ravens on Tuesday Night Football? Remember when I said fuck the Ravens hard and fuck the Browns even harder? Well, Pittsburgh is playing the Bengals so fuck the Bengals the hardest.

Filiponi: Do you have to be that obnoxious? This defense held Joe Burrow to 0/13 on third down conversions and we get a third string quarterback.

Walsh: Third string, Yao Ming, Burger King, Chicken Wings, Steelers by 17.

Madden: Haha that sounds like one of those thug life memes. The way Rick Walsh described that.

Filiponi: You're right Mark. I'm trying my best not to chuckle hysterically.

Pompieni: LOL Rich Walsh. Everyone is taking Pittsburgh.

Madden: Can I play Na na na na hey hey hey goodbye on a boom box in honor of Joe Burrow and Joe Mixon being out of this game for Steeler Nation?

Pompieni: No, that's incredibely tasteless. Tonight's game is brought to you by TCBY Treats. The ice cream and yogurt that makes you forget about Mark Madden's tasteless comments.

Madden: No tonights game is brought to the Cincinnati Reds mascot. His mustache is about as annoying as Bengals fans.

Pompieni: Alright let's get set for kickoff. We'll be back with kickoff after we show you commercials on TCBY Treats.



Why the Pittsburgh Steelers Will Win: Pittsburgh is going to dismantle Cincinnati. In fact this game may be uglier than the first meeting where Pittsburgh held Cincinnati to 0/13 on third down conversions.


Why the Cincinnati Bengals Will Win: Cincinnati will not have Joe Burrow or Joe Mixon. Cincinnati should continue to lose games in order to lock the third pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.


Prediction: Pittsburgh enters as a 12.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $500 dollars, the maximum bet is $700 dollars with the average gambler betting around $600 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 40.5. Right now 64% of the betting action is on Pittsburgh at -12.5. Take Pittsburgh to win and cover with the under.
