I’m nonetheless making an attempt to get well from final weekend’s Jets (+3.5) wager. Shedding on a punt return landing within the closing minute took a 12 months off my life.
Our greatest bets (27-24-1) are within the inexperienced, and I’m rolling with 5 performs over the subsequent few days. This house isn’t the place for 1,000,000 picks or five-team parlays, both. These are the video games I really like probably the most.
Let’s go to work with odds courtesy of FOX Bet.
No. 9 Oregon at No. 21 Oregon State (3:30 p.m. ET Saturday, ABC)
I hate how a lot I really like the Beavers this weekend.
Oregon quarterback Bo Nix clearly isn’t anyplace close to 100% – he solely rushed the ball twice for -3 yards final Saturday – and he’s very fortunate that Utah’s Cam Rising hurled three interceptions.
Oregon State’s dual-threat offense will problem the Geese protection all afternoon lengthy, and I received’t be shocked if the Beavs pull the upset in Corvallis. OSU is 9-2 ATS this season, and I anticipate one other tally within the left column.
Take the factors.
PICK: Oregon State (+3 at FOX Bet) to lose by fewer than 3 points (or win outright)
No. 3 Michigan at No. 2 Ohio State (midday, FOX and FOX Sports App)
If Blake Corum was wholesome, this could be a special story.
Michigan’s star working again is reportedly going to “attempt to give it a go,” however I don’t anticipate a lot from him. That basically sucks for Michigan as a result of Corum is the baseline for the whole lot their offense does.
In the meantime, the forecast couldn’t be higher for Ohio State’s high-flying move assault. Temperatures are anticipated to be within the mid-50s with no precipitation and minimal wind, so Heisman Trophy favourite C.J. Stroud ought to thrive with all these skillful extensive receivers.
Give me the Buckeyes by double digits.
PICK: Ohio State (-8 at FOX Bet) to win by more than 8 points
No. 25 Louisville at Kentucky (3 p.m. ET Saturday, SEC Community)
There’s nonetheless no phrase concerning the standing of Cardinals’ beginning quarterback Malik Cunningham. The senior missed final week’s house finale in opposition to NC State with a shoulder damage and even when he performs, will he be efficient?
Both means, these SEC rivals are each holding their opponents to lower than 20 factors per recreation, and Kentucky’s run protection may be very stingy. And these two offenses have left quite a bit to be desired over the previous few weeks.
Louisville’s D is sneaky good in opposition to the move, and I don’t anticipate Kentucky’s Will Levis to go bananas both. A 20-17 closing is extraordinarily attainable.
Protection, protection, protection.
PICK: Under 43 total points scored combined by both teams at FOX Bet
Herd Hierarchy: Bucs return, 49ers climb up on Colin’s Prime 10 of Week 12
Colin Cowherd shares his Prime 10 groups heading into Week 12.
Texans at Dolphins (1 p.m. ET Sunday, CBS)
Are the Miami Dolphins two touchdowns higher than anyone?
The Texans aren’t for everyone, however they’re robust to move up when the purpose unfold is that this huge. Houston head coach Lovie Smith has created a strong tradition, and this group has actually fought in each recreation over the past month. That’s greater than half the battle with an enormous underdog.
Positive, Miami’s offense is loaded, however its protection is nothing particular. Houston ought to be capable to transfer the chains with working again Dameon Pierce, and so long as Davis Mills protects the soccer, I like my probabilities. Additionally, it’s very seemingly the backdoor by no means closes with a quantity this huge.
I’ll take two touchdowns on this spot.
PICK: Texans (+14 at FOX Bet) to lose by fewer than 14 points (or win outright)
Aaron Rodgers, Packers booed off Lambeau subject in Week 11 loss to Titans
Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe react to Packers loss vs. Titans.
Packers at Eagles (8:20 p.m. ET Sunday, NBC)
Philadelphia isn’t enjoying good soccer recently.
The Eagles misplaced at house to Washington two weeks in the past and barely escaped Indianapolis final Sunday with a 17-16 victory. It’s wonderful what occurs when you may’t feast on a mediocre quarterback each week, huh?
It’s no enjoyable betting on groups on life help, however I don’t suppose the Packers have stop simply but. That is mainly their season, and I’ve definitely made worse bets through the years than placing my cash on a determined Aaron Rodgers.
Give me Inexperienced Bay slightly below a landing.
PICK: Packers (+6.5 at FOX Bet) to lose by fewer than 6.5 points (or win outright)
