Military Bowl: Pitt vs Navy Odds

Navy Football

Navy and Pittsburgh headline the Military Bowl in what should be a tightly contested affair, as sportsbooks initially opened the Midshipmen as 4-point favorites for the tilt. Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds took a middle of the pack Midshipmen squad and brought them to new levels this season, becoming a dark horse Heisman Trophy candidate in the process as the leader of Navy’s triple-option attack. 

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>Pittsburgh is 5-0 SU and ATS in its last five games in December.</li>
<li>Pittsburgh is 5-2 ATS in its last seven games after losing the previous game.</li>
<li>The total has gone UNDER in six of Pitts' last eight games against the AAC.</li>

Navy has only suffered defeats against Top 25 teams Notre Dame and Houston this season, which means Pitt will have their work cut out for them. The Panthers are no slouch, however. Under first-year head coach Pat Narduzzi, the Panthers had its first eight-win season since 2010 and their first winning record in the ACC since 2011. This will mark Narduzzi’s first bowl game of his career.

The Atlantic Coast Conference has given Navy fits in recent games, as the Midshipmen are 1-6-1 ATS in their last eight games versus the conference.

SNF Odds Preview: Vikings vs Giants

Adrian Peterson Vikings

The Vikings have been one of the NFL’s best bets this season, posting an 11-3 ATS record. They’ll be looking to make their backers’ wallets even fatter when they host the New York Giants on Sunday Night. 

It’s a sad state of affairs for a Giants team who’ve lost four out of their last five games. They’ll be without their human highlight reel receiver Odell Beckham who’s suspended for the game and their playoff aspirations could go up in smoke with a loss in this one. One positive for the Giants is that they’ve gone 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine road games.

The Vikings have been a great bet in the last full month of the NFL regular season over the past few years as they’ve gone 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games in December. At home, in particular, the Vikings have gone 8-1 SU and 7-2 ATS in their last nine December home games.

It’s possible that the Giants might be running into the Viking at the right time though, as December hasn’t been a strong month for Adrian Peterson. In his three games this month, the most rushing yards he’s recorded in a game has been 69

Seahawks Covering Huge Spreads

The Seattle Seahawks have now won seven out of their last eight games and have become an extremely reliable bet despite facing some huge spreads. Seattle has won five straight games ATS, covering spreads of 14 twice and 10.5 once. They’ve also managed to score 30 or more points in five of their last six games.

The Rams can’t get much worse on the road as they’ve gone 1-5 SU and 1-4-1 ATS this season. Despite winning just three of their last 10 games vs the Seahawks, the Rams have managed to go 5-2 ATS against them in their last seven matchups. 

Home field advantage has been huge in this matchup as the visiting team is 0-5 ATS in the last five games between the clubs. Another trend working against the Rams is that they haven’t responded well to being underdogs in Seattle, going 1-6 ATS in their last seven trips to CenturyLink Field.

Of note to OVER/UNDER bettors, the teams have combined to go 6-14 O/U this season.

Packers are a Poor Bet as Underdogs

Aaron Rodgers Packers

In what could be the game of the week, the Arizona Cardinals, owners of eight straight wins, host the NFC North leading Green Bay Packers. As hot as the Cards have been, they’ve been failing to cover spreads at home, going 0-4 ATS in their last four home games. Their last two home wins have come by just three points each.

The Green Bay Packers have been hard to figure out this season, but with the playoffs only a few weeks away, they appear to be rolling at the right time after three straight wins. They haven’t been underdogs often in recent years, but when they have been they haven’t responded well, going 2-12 SU and 3-10-1 ATS in their last 14 games as underdogs. They opened as 4.5 point dogs in this one.

The game opened with a total on the high side at 49.5. Green Bay has seen the total go UNDER in eight of their last 11 games, while the Cardinals have gone UNDER in three of their last four games.

Jaguars are Awful on the Road

The Jacksonville Jaguars aren’t quite out of the playoff hunt yet as they head to New Orleans for a Week 16 matchup vs the Saints. The Jags have only won one game on the road this season, but have gone 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven games after an ATS loss.

It’s been a season to forget for the 5-9 SU Saints who are a middling 3-3-1 ATS at home this season. They’ve lost five out of their last six games and have given up 31 or more points on seven occasions this season.

Jags fans who are clinging to playoff hopes might be out of luck in this one as Jacksonville has won just one time in their last 15 games as road underdogs. In their five road losses this season the Jags have allowed an average of 35 points.

Jacksonville was likely hoping for a bit of a break when Drew Brees was announced as day-to-day with a torn plantar fascia, but the quarterback is expected to play.

NHL Betting: The Battle of Alberta

Provincial supremacy is on the line once again when the Calgary Flames host the Edmonton Oilers Sunday night. The rivalry has been one sided in recent meetings with the Flames winning eight of the last nine against the Oilers while outscoring their interprovincial foes 38-19 in that span. 

The Flames are one of the best home teams in the NHL and will be looking to set a franchise record with their 11th consecutive win in Calgary Sunday. Johnny Gaudreau continues to make the future look bright in Calgary as the diminutive forward has 10 goals and six assists in 10 in this month.

After opening December red-hot, the Oilers have hit the skids and have now lost four of their past five games. Edmonton’s offense has been stagnant during their recent losing ways with the team tallying just seven goals in their past five contests.

NBA: Kings Becoming Hot UNDER Target

The Sacramento Kings 12-17 SU and 14-15 ATS records on the season leave a lot to be desired, but they have been pulling through for bettors in the total market. The UNDER is 10-3 in the Kings past 13 games while the team has stayed under the closing total in their past six contests. The Kings will look to play another low-scoring affair when they host the Portland Trail Blazers Sunday.

After several less-than-stellar years, the resurrection of Rajon Rondo’s career is in full bloom for the Kings. The talented, though often bone-headed, point guard is averaging 12.4 points and 11.3 assists per game while routinely appearing in highlight reels for his dimes. Rondo has teamed up with DeMarcus Cousins to give the Kings two players averaging a double-double per game this season.

The Blazers have been without Daman Lillard for the past three games and though he told the media he could be available for this game, he admitted that it is more likely he will not play until Wednesday. Portland is coming off an unexpected beatdown of the Cleveland Cavaliers in which they held the Cavs starting five to just 40 points.

NBA: Lakers Covering Against Grizzlies

The Los Angeles Lakers have been consistent in two things in recent memory; losing and covering against the Memphis Grizzlies. The Lakers are a near perfect 7-0-1 ATS in their past eight contests against the Grizzlies and they will look to continue that trend when the teams meet Sunday.

Though Kobe Bryant has gotten more than his fair share critics about his questionable shot selection, the 37-year old has actually been on of the better shooters on the Lakers recently. Bryant has averaged 21.8 points in 45.5 percent shooting in his past six contests, which was highlighted by a 31-point performance against the Nuggets.

The Grizzlies have struggled with consistency all season long, but they have been near unbeatable when they are actually clicking. Memphis has scored 100-plus points in 12 times this season and they have won 11 of those games.
