Man do I love Saturday football. The start of the NFL Saturday slate and College Championship weekend all in one day, how can it be better than this. I won’t even let the fact that both matchup today stink ruin my excitement. We won Thursday and are looking to put some winners out today so let’s get to it.
BUFF @ DEN (O/U 48)
Now normally I like to bet the Bills overs because they pass the ball a ton and put up a bunch of points. However I am leaning the under here mainly because of the Broncos. They looked great last week against Carolina and Drew Lock looked incredible but I think that was a fluke. Drew Lock is a bad quarterback and he will look like shit against a Bills defense that has started to find their footing. The Bills dominated the Steelers last week and will make easy work of the Broncos so I also like Buffalo -6. The Bills and the Jets are two franchises on direct opposite paths since drafting quarterbacks in the top 10 3 years ago. While the Jets have done everything in their power to hinder Darnolds growth the Bills have allowed Josh Allen to flourish into a pro bowler. As a Jets fan it’s very depressing but as a fan of people jumping through tables it is nice to see Buffalo playing well.
Pick: Under 48, BUFF -6
CAR @ GB -9.5
Carolina has nothing left to play for. They are traveling to Green Bay in the middle of winter. They will want no part of this game. The Packers need to keep winning in order to keep the number 1 seed in the NFC so they will look to get up early and stay up. Give me GB -9.5. If Drew Lock was able to shred this Panthers defense last week imagine what Aaron Rodgers will be able to do.
Pick: GB -9.5
