Bills vs. Chiefs

Take the Buffalo Bills (#257)

Off another 'right side' winner with the Chargers on Turkey Day, Teddy is hitting 58% in NFL action from Day 1 this season! Teddy's NBA has been a consistent moneymaker as well, entering the weekend on a 68% heater over the past three weeks!  Cash in right here, all weekend long!

Let’s start with this: I don’t trust this Chiefs defense one iota, certainly not enough to lay double digits with Kansas City this week. 

KC has gone 1-4 SU since their 5-0 start because they haven’t been able to stop anybody.   A struggling Raiders offense that hadn’t worked in more than a month picked apart the KC pass defense to the tune of 417 yards and 31 points.  The following week, Oakland was shut down again.  Then a Broncos team with no passing game whatsoever and an injury riddled, struggling offensive line run the ball all night against the Chiefs; to the tune of 5.7 yards per carry, 177 yards on the ground.  The following week, Denver’s offense couldn’t move the football.

The Chiefs faced Dallas right before their bye.  It was more of the same: four TD’s in four red zone tries behind a balanced attack.  Their performance last week after the bye was better, but it came against a Giants offense that’s been broken since Week 1 – heck, the defense-less Redskins held the Giants without a first down in the second half on Thanksgiving.  From a yards-per-play standpoint, KC is tied for #28 in the NFL on defense; not a trustworthy squad in this pointspread range.

This quote from Chiefs pro bowl tight end Travis Kelce really stood out to me last week.  A subtle shot at the coaching staff, perhaps?  “Teams are running Cover 2. Until we can beat Cover 2, both in the run game and in the pass game, we're going to struggle."  The Chiefs rank #30 in red zone touchdown percentage on offense, doing what Andy Reid’s teams tend to do – settle for field goals.  That’s a big part of the reason why the last time Andy Reid covered a pointspread as a favorite of more than a touchdown came back in 2014……

Tyrod Taylor might have lost his head coach, but he hasn’t lost that locker room.  I’m expecting the Bills to come out with a real chip on their collective shoulders this week off the Nathan Peterman debacle in LA last Sunday.  LeSean McCoy should have all kinds of room to run against a KC defense that’s allowing a whopping 4.6 yards per carry –a bottom five run defense. 

And the Bills banged up receiving corps might not be as decimated as originally thought.  WR’s Kelvin Benjamin, Jordan Matthews and Deonte Thompson, along with TE Charles Clay are all listed as questionable on Sunday.  Head coach Sean McDermott: “We’ve got some guys knicked up, but we feel confident in, number one, their abilities and then they’re working through some of those bumps and bruises. Those are all part of what happens this time of the year."  Read between the lines of that quote and we can expect the Bills to field a near full complement of receivers on Sunday in a game they’ve got a shot to win outright.  Take Buffalo.

Grizzlies vs Nuggets
-6 -110 at BMaker
Play Type: Premium

Take Denver (#516)

My clients and I cashed a winner betting against the Memphis Grizzlies in their home loss to Portland earlier in the week.  Let me start with an extended excerpt from that write-up, giving a clear explanation of why the Grizz are a ‘bet-against’ team right now moving forward.  Numbers have been slightly edited to reflect current realities:

Things have gone from bad to worse for David Fizdale’s squad in recent weeks, a ‘must fade’ team in this pointspread range against any decent foe.  The Grizz went 5-1 to the open the season.  They are 2-9 since.  One of their two best players, point guard Mike Conley, is out indefinitely with an Achilles issue.  Injuries have forced Fizdale to bring Mario Chalmers and Chandler Parsons into the starting lineup, which has left the Grizzlies second unit with a real lack of scoring punch.

The quotes coming out of Memphis aren’t exactly loaded with confidence and positivity these days.  Here are some excerpts from what Marc Gasol said to reporters over the weekend; ‘bet-against’ stuff!  (Read the full interview here) http://www.commercialappeal.com/story/sports/nba/grizzlies/2017/11/19/grizzlies-center-marc-gasol-sounds-off-embarrassing-and-sad-team/878743001/)

Asked why they are struggling:

“I think selfishness, but I don’t want to think it’s in a bad way. I don’t think guys are being selfish intentionally. But they’re thinking too much, or they’re allowed to think too much on themselves than on the team. We’ve got to get stops as a team. We’ve got to get good shots as a team. If we don’t do that, it’s a ripple effect that’s just hard to stop. You allow some things to happen, and it’s just hard. Defense doesn’t work if it’s four out of five guys, or three, or most of the time it’s two… To me, it’s embarrassing and sad."

Asked how difficult is it to remain positive?

I went to the back and I stood there for 20 minutes trying to think of what to say to you guys. The only thing I can say is I apologize because that’s not what our fans are used to seeing and we’ve got to figure it out…..you’ve got to at least have the mindset of trying to learn and being team first and executing single plays. We have three plays, maybe four. So there’s not that many to remember.”

Asked what is the biggest obstacle to building the chemistry?

“I can’t put my finger on one thing. It’s not one thing. It’s multiple things that are all tied to each other. What I’ll tell you is that everybody has to look in the mirror.”

Denver returns home off a rough road trip, losing Paul Millsap to a long term injury while suffering ugly blowout losses at Houston and in LA against the Lakers.  Millsap’s injury hurts, but it’s not a dealbreaker for this squad – head coach Mike Malone isn’t short on frontcourt depth.  And there’s extra emphasis on tonight’s game for the home favorite, if you believe this quote from Coach Malone: "It (was) an emotional trip. You lose one of your best players for an extended period of time, and you're going home after a real tough loss. But we're going home together. We're going home united. And we're going home with a belief that we're heading in the right direction."

The Nuggets have won each of their last four games at the Pepsi Center by eight points or more, including ‘quality’ wins over the Thunder and Pelicans.  Expect that emerging trend to continue tonight in a step-up spot for the home team.  Take the Nuggets.

BYU vs Alabama
-7½ -110 at 5Dimes
Play Type: Premium

Take Alabama (#624)

Sorry, ran out of time on one of the busiest betting days of the year, so I’ve posted a link to a key ‘anti-BYU’ piece of the equation from the Salt Lake City Tribune below.


BYU isn’t ready to face quality competition, a team that has changed their style of play completely between recent years (uptempo) and 2017-18 (much slower pace).  Dave Rose’s squad isn’t playing much defense either, allowing 50% from the floor in their last two ballgames.  ‘Bama is going to make us money this year – Avery Johnson has pushed the right buttons for in terms of recruiting and on floor play, with the Crimson Tide excelling with super-frosh Collin Sexton at the point.  Look for the Crimson Tide to run away with this one; a game that shouldn’t be close enough for a foul fest in the final minute.  Take Alabama.

Miami-FL vs Pittsburgh
+13 -110 at BMaker
Play Type: Free

Take Pitt (#132)

Miami has risen up to #2 in the latest college football playoff rankings, yet the Canes are primed to be tested at Pitt in early start action on Friday.  Mark Richt’s squad is coming off three huge, marquee victories all at home.  In statement games against Virginia Tech and Notre Dame, Miami dominated, controlling the flow throughout.  Last week, against Virginia, Miami roared back from an early deficit with a furious fourth quarter rally.

A road trip to Pittsburgh in late November is no easy task for this warm weather squad in a normal season.  This year, given what Miami has already been through in recent weeks, it’s a MONSTER trouble spot, especially with the lookahead to the ACC title game against Clemson on deck.  Quote after quote from the Miami locker room is concerning to me – lots of lookahead, lots of talk about what they don’t want to do (which often leads to the exact opposite effect).

Let’s not forget that the Hurricanes have been living on turnover margin, forcing 19 turnovers in their last five games – that won’t last forever.  Nor should we forget the previous struggles this Hurricanes team has had on the highway – barely escaping past struggling Florida State (4-6, won by only four points) and North Carolina(3-8, won by only five points) in their only two road games since September.

Pitt has been hanging around as a moneywinning underdog against superior competition for most of the season.  We saw them cover wire-2-wire at +20 at Penn State, knock off Duke with an outright upset at +9 and hang tough with Virginia Tech just last week; throwing for more than 300 yards against that stout Hokies defense on the road in a spread covering loss.

In four meetings between these schools over the past four years, Miami has only one win by more than ten points; a competitive series.  All the pressure is on the road favorite here; a situation that this program hasn’t been in for many years.  Their defense just allowed a season high in passing yards and total yards last week.  Meanwhile Pitt has found their QB of the future in Kenny Pickett, a playmaking frosh with a big arm. 

At 4-7, this is Pitt’s bowl game.  Senior CB Avonte Maddox: “History is a great thing, but we live in the now. It’s time to create more history……I see it every day (in practice). You know when guys lose, they throw the towel in. This team hasn’t thrown the towel in yet … These guys (are) willing to lay it all on the line.”  Take Pitt
