BT’s “6 pack of picks” Version 15.0

Lions-Raiders should point to plenty of points...

Week 14: 4-2 ATS

Season to date: 39-31-1

Week 15: (home team in CAPS)

New York Jets (+3) over PHILADELPHIA EAGLES: Sorry Philly, but this is familiar terrain for Rex Ryan’s Jets. New York is in the midst of another late season push, something they are very comfortable doing. The running game has shown flashes in recent weeks, giving the Jets the look of a playoff-bound team. Take the points–but the Jets win this one outright.

New England Patriots @ DENVER BRONCOS, UNDER 46.5: The Patriots soft defense should enable Tim Tebow to move the sticks a bit (before the 4th quarter) and kill some clock, further frustrating the Patriots. Not sure if I have the guts to ride Denver to another win, but this game should be close, and Denver’s defense keeps this one below the number. Roll with the under.

Detroit Lions @ OAKLAND RAIDERS, OVER 47.5: Both teams are desperate, and both teams remain very, very sloppy. Expect a nice bounce back from Carson Palmer to provide some scores for the Silver and Black while Stafford does enough on his end to put the scoreboard to work early and often. Shootout.

Cincinnati Bengals (-6.5) over ST. LOUIS RAMS: Cincy’s defense will stifle the pitiful Rams, and Andy Dalton keeps the surprising Bengals firmly in the AFC playoff picture with a relatively easy, double-figure win.

Carolina Panthers (+6.5) over HOUSTON TEXANS: Sometimes it’s all about the gut, and my gut tells me Carolina makes Houston sweat this one out into the final minutes, with an upset not completely off the table.

Washington Redskins @ NEW YORK GIANTS, OVER 46: Coughlin’s crew is riding high after shocking the ‘Boys on national TV Sunday Night. The good times continue, but Big Blue’s secondary allows the ‘Skins to keep things within shouting distance with a breakdown or two. Plenty of points on the way, ride it.

Holiday Cheer for everyone!
