NY Jets at Baltimore -14
at 8:20 PM ET
TV: NFLN

The Jets probably won’t be going all-out to get the win here as they look to land a top 5 pick in next year’s draft. It probably wouldn’t matter much with Lamar Jackson and the Ravens playing at an incredibly high level. Baltimore tops the 40-point plateau in Week 15.

Philadelphia -6 at Washington
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: FOX

Sure, the Eagles have stunk up the join this season. Philadelphia has far underachieved in 2019 while battling injuries on both sides of the ball. Still, sheer desperation, combined with the fact that the Redskins are mediocre in every way, means Philly gets the convincing win in the nation’s capitol.

Chicago at Green Bay -7
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: FOX

Let’s see. The Bears have a solid defense, but the can’t score, mostly because they have an awful quarterback in Mitch Trubisky. The Packers are playing at home in December where future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers is nearly unbeatable. No matter how you do the math, the Packers come out on top.

New England -10.5 at Cincinnati
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: CBS

Sure, Tom Brady is almost completely bereft of talent at the skill positions, but the Patriots come run out their second-stringers and beat the woeful Bengals by a gazillion points!

Houston at Tennessee -2.5
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: CBS

The Texans have a legitimate superstar in quarterback Deshaun Watson, but the Tennessee Titans look like a completely different team under a clearly resurrected Ryan Tannehill of all people. This Week 15 AFC South showdown looks like a classic field goal finish that Tennessee pulls out late.

Seattle -5 at Carolina
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: FOX

Ron Rivera’s tenure has come to an end in Carolina as the Panthers have pretty much gone belly up the last month. Seattle started off the season as an almost afterthought as a legitimate Super Bowl candidate in the NFC, but that’s not the case anymore. Russell Wilson is an absolute magician and the red-hot Seahawks will roll to victory in Week 15.

Buffalo -1 at Pittsburgh
at 8:20 PM ET
TV: 8:20 PM ET

The Bills are arguably the most resilient team in the league. Buffalo’s defense is rock-solid and quarterback Josh Allen looks better and better with each passing game. Still, Mike Tomlin should win Coach of the Year for his job with the injury-riddled Steelers this season. Somehow, someway, the Steelers take care of business in Week 15 in a contest that should resemble an all-out free-for-all.

Cleveland -2.5 at Arizona
at 4:05 PM ET
TV: CBS

The Browns have the edge in overall roster talent in this Week 15 matchup, but the loud-mouthed Baker Mayfield has been quieted this season because of a string of unimpressive performances. Cleveland will look to remain in the playoff chase. But I like clearly gifted rookie Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals to serve the Browns another piece of the humble pie they’ve been force-fed all season long.

LA Rams at Dallas -3.5
at 4:25 PM ET
TV: FOX

The Rams and Cowboys will both be completely desperate in this Week 15 meeting of NFC playoff hopefuls. Dallas has the better defense by far and the Boys are playing at home. Yet, I can’t bring myself to back the underachieving Cowboys and I definitely don’t believe that Jason Garrett is on the same level as L.A.’s Sean McVay. The Boys blow it at home to send Jerry Jones into his latest team-bashing frenzy.

Monday, December 16, 2019
Indianapolis at New Orleans -8.5
at 8:15 PM ET
TV: ESPN

New Orleans will be at home in their Week 15 inter-conference clash against Indianapolis, but drew Brees has looked mostly pedestrian this season and the Colts are one of the biggest bunch of overachievers in the league. I’m thinking Jacoby Brissett and Frank Reich find a way to keep this one close until the very end before falling in the Big Easy by less than a touchdown.

NFL Week 14 opening odds dropped last night and with playoff implications abound you are going to want to keep an eye on the following games!

Early NFL Trending Odds Week 14

Dallas -3 at Chicago
at 8:20 PM ET
TV: NFLN

Dallas got completely and utterly dominated in their embarrassing Thanksgiving Day loss at home against Buffalo. Chicago might not look anything like the 12-win team they were a year ago, but Chicago has won two straight and they’re desperate to keep their slim playoff hopes alive for another week. Mitch Trubisky might be mediocre at best, but Chicago is playing at home and they still have a very good defense.

San Francisco at New Orleans -3
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: FOX

Even in defeat, the Niners were impressive on the road at Baltimore on Sunday. New Orleans has won three straight, but Drew Brees isn’t quite playing like the superstar we’ve all come to know and love. After suffering a pair of three-point losses over the last month, Jimmy G and company look like a team that’s due for a signature road win.

Washington at Green Bay -15
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: FOX

Stop the presses! The Skins have won two straight. Unfortunately, Washington will find beating Aaron Rodgers at home in December way too big of a task. While I don’t think the Skins have a chance of getting the outright road win, I do like Washington to cover the big spread while continuing to lean on the rushing of Darrius Guice and the ageless Adrian Peterson.

Cincinnati at Cleveland -8
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: CBS

With Andy Dalton back in the saddle, the Bengals got their first win of the season by stomping the Jets on Sunday. Baker Mayfield and the Browns will be going all-out to keep their faint postseason hopes alive. Cleveland is in a must-win situation and playing at home against a Cincinnati team that has no reasons to try hard from here on out as they seek to lock down the No. 1 overall pick in next year’s NFL Draft.

Baltimore -5.5 at Buffalo
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: CBS

Lamar Jackson and the Ravens are on a red-hot roll, but the Bills have been one of the most persistent teams in the league this season. Plus, I completely enjoyed their thorough demolition of Dallas on Thanksgiving Day. I smell a field goal finish in this intriguing Week 14 AFC matchup of almost certain playoff participants.

Kansas City at New England
at 4:25 PM ET
TV: CBS

The Chiefs are suddenly playing actual defense and Patrick Mahomes is starting to look like the reigning MVP he is. Tom Brady is finding putting points on the board with a roster that is bereft of talent at the skill positions tougher than ever. A Chiefs road win just wouldn’t be that surprising to me.

Pittsburgh -1 at Arizona
at 4:25 PM ET
TV: CBS

I’m a huge believer in Kyler Murray and no matter what happens from here on in, Arizona has had a pretty successful season. Mike Tomlin should be getting mentioned for Coach of the Year honors. Unfortunately for the Cardinals, Pittsburgh is locked in right now while looking to turn their postseason hopes into reality.

Tennessee -3 at Oakland
at 4:25 PM ET
TV: CBS

The Titans are looking dangerous right now with Ryan Tannehill and Derek Henry leading the way. Tennessee has won three straight and five of six. Despite having some legitimate playoff hopes just two weeks ago, Derek Carr and the raiders have stunk up the joint by getting blown out by the Jets and Chiefs their last two. The Titans look like a lock even on the road.

Seattle -3 at LA Rams
at 8:20 PM ET
TV: NBC

Los Angeles managed to pick up a much-needed win on Sunday by spanking Arizona. A much tougher task awaits as they seek to stop MVP candidate Russell Wilson and a streaking Seahawks team that had won four straight and seven of eight heading into their Week 13 Monday Night matchup against Minnesota. Maybe it’s me, but if this Week 14 NFC West matchup comes down to Wilson versus Jared Goff, well…yeah…I’ll just stop right there!

NY Giants at Philadelphia -9.5
at 8:15 PM ET
TV: ESPN

The Giants have dropped three straight, but at least they’ve played as hard as they can in every game. Things have gone from bad to worse in Philadelphia where the Eagles have dropped three in a row, including their embarrassing loss to the lowly Dolphins on Sunday. The Birds might be playing at home and they might be desperate, but right now, I wouldn’t trust them with someone else’s money!

College Football Conference Championship Trending Spreads

College Football Conference Championship Trending Spreads

Betting odds for College Football’s Conference Championship games came out Sunday, December 1st and here are the top trending spreads you need to keep an eye on.

College Football Conference Championship Trending Spreads

Utah -6.5 vs Oregon
at 8:00 PM ET
TV: ABC

With only one loss, Utah has a real shot to reach the CFP. With this PAC-12 championship going down at neutral Levi’s Stadium, I’m going with the Utes to get the win against Justin Herbert and a Ducks team that has been limited to 28 points or less in each of their last two games. Utah has covered the chalk in eight straight, including six times as a double-digit favorite.

Baylor vs. Oklahoma -10.5
at 12:00 PM ET
TV: ABC

Baylor will be looking for revenge in this Big 12 championship meeting of top 10, one-loss championship hopefuls. Oklahoma escaped Waco with a narrow 34-31 road win over the bears three weeks back. The Sooners will also have a legitimate chance to reach the CFP if they win this contest to finish with one loss. However, with this affair going down at neutral AT&T Stadium, I like Baylor to easily cover the double-digit spread, if not win outright. The Bears are 8-1 ATS in their last nine games against a team with a winning record and the Sooners are 1-4 ATS in their last five conference games.

Louisiana at Appalachian State -6
at 12:00 PM ET
TV: ESPN

Louisiana has won six straight, but the Ragin’ Cajuns are facing a tall task in trying to beat a nationally-ranked Appalachian State squad in the Sun Belt championship. The Mountaineers are looking to finish with one loss and they already spanked Louisiana 17-7 on the road no less. With this being a home game for Appalachian State (Kidd Brewer Stadium) the Mountaineers win by double digits to improve on their blistering 21-8 ATS mark over their last 29.

Miami (OH) vs. Central Michigan -5.5
at 12:00 PM ET
TV: ESPN2

Central Michigan (8-4) might have just one more win that Miami-Ohio, but there’s a reason why a vast majority of the betting public are already backing the Chippewas as the favorite in this MAC championship showdown at Ford Field. Miami-Ohio is coming into this contest off a pitiful 41-27 blowout road loss against ball State this past weekend. Central Michigan has gone 6-1 ATS in their last seven.

UAB vs. FAU -7
at 1:30 PM ET
TV: CBSSN

Alabama-Birmingham might have an identical record to Florida Atlantic (9-3), but I wouldn’t advise anyone in their right mind to back the Blazers after watching them fall to Southern Mississippi 37-2 a month ago. With the Conference USA championship game taking place at Florida Atlantic’s home stadium, the Owls are the easy pick to win and cover.

Cincinnati vs. Memphis -11
at 3:30 PM ET
TV: ABC

The 2019 AAC Championship is going to be a bit of a strange affair. Memphis just beat Cincinnati 34-24 at home this past weekend. With a repeat of that contest, set to go down this Saturday at Memphis’ Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium, I’m expecting a nearly identical result as the Tigers go all-out to finish with one loss.

Hawaii vs. Boise State -16.5
at 4:00 PM ET
TV: ESPN

Nationally-ranked Boise State pounded Hawaii unmercifully en route to an impressive 59-37 Week 7 home win. With the 2019 Mountain West Conference championship taking place at the Broncos’ Albertsons Stadium, a home win looks like a near certainty. Hawaii has been limited to 21 points or less in two of their last three games while the favorite in this conference rivalry has gone 6-0 ATS over the last half-dozen meetings.

Georgia vs. LSU -6
at 4:00 PM ET
TV: CBS

A narrow home loss here probably wouldn’t knock second-ranked LSU out of the College Football Playoff, but Joe Burrow and the Tigers need a win to avoid any chances. Still, with this SEC title tilt taking place at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, it’s a virtual ‘home’ date for the Bulldogs and that makes Jake Fromm and company dangerous.

Virginia vs. Clemson -29
at 7:30 PM ET
TV: ABC

The defending national champs are the biggest favorites of any conference championship matchup. More importantly, Trevor Lawrence and the Tigers know they need a win in the ACC title title game to remain unbeaten an avoid any possible playoff scenario that leaves them on the the outside looking in come selection time. Clemson has limited each of their last two opponents (Wake Forest and South Carolina) to just three points.

Ohio State -15.5 vs. Wisconsin
at 8:00 PM ET
TV: FOX

A loss in the Big Ten Championship might not be enough to knock top-ranked Ohio State out of the College Football Playoff, but it would make things quite interesting. Wisconsin got blown out by their conference rivals 38-7 on the road in Week 9, but the Badgers have won four straight since while knocking off nationally ranked Iowa and previously No. 9 Minnesota along the way. Ohio State has gone 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games against a team with a winning record.
