I only had one ticket cash and none on the moneyline with my rabid dog selections last week. We’ve been in a bit of a rut over the last month, so it’s time to take it to the next level with only five weeks remaining in the regular season. The G-Men proved to be the lone victor, but man it still stings that we were unable to cash that moneyline ticket after they held an 18-3 first half lead. I’m still of the belief Washington was the right side in that Turkey Day tilt with the Cowboys. Dropping that one by a point sucked! San Francisco couldn’t get anything going against Tampa Bay who ended up putting forth one of their best defensive efforts of the season.
It’s time to turn the page and go looking for dog winners in Week 13!

This is a real interesting spot for both the Browns and Texans. You know darn well Cleveland put everything it had in the tank to embarrass the Bengals with Hue Jackson now roaming their sideline. After proclaiming their dominance in a one-sided 35-20 beat down, will they be able to go back on the road and bring that same type of intensity against a Texans squad in the midst of the longest win streak in franchise history? On the flipside, will Houston have enough in the tank to keep that win streak intact playing on short rest against a revitalized Cleveland outfit?
I’m not sold on Houston. This is a team that escaped at both Denver and Washington before getting into an early 10-0 hole against Tennessee and exploding en route to logging the win and cover. Call me unimpressed. For Cleveland to cash these tickets, the rookies must step up. I’m a believer in both Baker Mayfield and Nick Chubb enough to think this young up and coming squad has it in them to go into NRG and spring the upset.

I’m surprised to see money coming in on the Falcons as we get closer to kick-off. Baltimore has looked like a different team with Lamar Jackson at the helm. They’ve won and covered two in a row albeit against lesser opposition, while the Falcons have dropped three straight both SU and ATS after dropping that Turkey Day tilt in N’awlens. I get that Atlanta plays its best brand of ball on the fast track of their home dome, but they’re up against it in this spot.
The Falcons offense is scary one-dimensional. If it’s ground game once again gets shut down by Baltimore’s stout run defense, Matty Ice is going to have a heck of a time trying to carve up the league’s No. 2 ranked run defense that’s only conceded an average of 1.4 passing touchdowns per game (No. 4). With Jackson getting the benefit of running up against Atlanta’s sieve-like run defense and Baltimore possessing by far the better overall stop unit, I fully expect the Ravens to extend the win streak to three.

After getting their clocks cleaned by the Chargers in Tinseltown last week, nobody wants a piece of the Cardinals in their Week 13 trek to Lambeau Field. I get it. The Cardinals aren’t a good team. The offense ranks out amongst the worst in the league along with Oakland and Buffalo, while the defense has proven to be extremely porous. That said, what have the Packers shown in recent weeks that lead one to believe they should be installed two touchdown favorites to win any game? Was it their competitive losses to both Seattle and Minnesota the last two weeks? No, then it has to be the 31-12 dusting of Miami as 11 point favorites three weeks back.
The only thing that would prevent Arizona from being competitive in this matchup is Aaron Jones running wild. That’s certainly a possibility with the Cardinals marching the league’s No. 30 ranked rush defense onto the gridiron that’s given up over 5.0 yards per rush and an average of 1.3 rushing touchdowns over the last three weeks.
On the flip side, Green Bay’s rush defense leaves much to be desired as well with it ranked No. 23 overall. There will be an opportunity for David Johnson to have one of his better games of the season provided Zona can successfully keep the game close and not be forced to abandon the running game.
With the Cardinals getting a heaping load of points and checking in 7-3 ATS their L/10 following a point spread loss, I’m willing to take the chance it occurs. Green Bay has nothing to play for. It’s not winning out or going to the playoffs.
