NFL Sunday – Playoff Edition

66-50-5 on the NFL up 37.36 units

Ravens at -147 for 3 units. Phil Rivers has 6 interceptions in his last 3 games. Lamar Jackson averages 80 yards rushing a game as a starter. Ravens are great at covering receivers that like to line up out wide like Keenan Allen. Chargers ended the season poorly, while Baltimore ended the season trending up. Ravens beat the Chargers 22-10 in California. I don’t see how the Chargers just get better at stopping the run a few weeks later and a few time zones over. Gus Edwards and Lamar Jackson are tough to stop. Ravens D steps up and gets the win.

Bears at -270 for 3 units. Da Bears. Foles has the experience over Mitch, but Mitch can run. The Bears allowed the fewest rushing yards the ever have in a 16-game season this year. Since Week 15, Mitchell Trubisky has the highest completion % in the NFL. Bears have won 9 of their last 10. Chicago’s defense should control the game. I want to bet the spread, but Foles and the Alshon Jeffrey revenge game have me second guessing the Bears -7.

Atletico Madrid/Sevilla over 2 at -144 for 3 units. 4 of the past 5 matches between these two have gone over this number. Betting Atletico overs is a dangerous game, but I think there is a good chance the over hits today. Sevilla have scored 27 goals over their past 10 home games. Atl. Madrid’s defense isn’t quite as good on the road. Ben Yedder and Andre Silva will be a handful for Madrid’s backline. Sevilla can be countered and Griezmann is the type of forward Sevilla struggles containing. This game ends 2-1.

Barcelona/Real Madrid -1 Parlay at +131 for 2 units. Santi Cazorla scored twice for Villarreal to tie Real Madrid last time out. It was the first time Real blew a halftime lead all season. Courtois has kept a clean sheet in 5 of 7 home appearances. Real has beat Sociedad 9 times in a row at home, averaging over 3.5 goals a game in that span. Bale and Asensio are out, but Modric, Kroos, Benzema, and Isco should get it done.

Getafe is hot, but Barcelona is still Barcelona. Ousmane Dembele has 7 La Liga goals this season. Only Real Madrid and Atletico have scored more than one goal against Getafe this season. Barcelona are the only team in the league better than them two. Barcelona have 4 wins and a draw in their last 5 visits to Coliseum Alfonso Perez. Girona dominated possession and should have beat Getafe last time out, Barcelona is a lot better than Girona… Oh yeah and Messi.
