1….KANSAS CITY -10 vs. Cleveland Browns won their SB last week when Pittsburgh gift wrapped them an easy win. That stuff doesn’t happen 2 weeks in a row. Topeka high could’ve beaten Pitt with all of those Steeler turnovers. KC h/c Andy Reid is 26-6 SU & 21-11 ATS off a bye week inc: 6-2 in the post season. Also, teams off upset wins like Cleveland are a putrid 12-46 SU & 22-36 ATS.

Ravens are on fire. Try catching LaMar Jackson on the run…nearly impossible. Now try catching him on a sheet of ice….completely impossible. So if we do have bad weather this will HELP Baltimore. Ravens are a nice 6-0 SU & ATS roll. They are playing their best defense of the season holding their last 3 opponents to 228 YPG. Ravens are averaging 262 rushing yards their last 6 games. That’s the most in a 6-game span since the 1949 Eagles. Can’t win on the road? Think again as h/c John Harbaugh has an NFL record 8 playoff road wins. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Baltimore GETTING points.

3. GREEN BAY -6.5 vs. LA Rams
No way the Rams win two in a row. Same stat as with Cleveland…upset winners in the post season don’t do well their next game. Plus, you have a warm weather team (Rams) playing in a cold weather site (GB). Weather forecast? 35 w/ snow showers. Forget Lamar Jackson, how many times has California boy Jared Goff played in those conditions. Probably not many. Aaron Rogers & NFC Conf. Title losers the next year @home: 43-7 SU & 33-15-2 ATS. GB is going to win by d/d. OPPOSITE PICK: LA RAMS +6.5

4. NBA…MILWAUKEE -6 vs. Dallas Bucks are coming into midseason form. After starting 3-3, they’ve won 5 of 6 with 4 of the wins coming by d/d. Mavs have won 4 straight but the Bucks are the better team, at home and playing well….and only laying 6pts.

5. LA CLIPPERS -6.5 @ SACRAMENTO First of 2 games in a 3 game stretch for these two teams. Kings have hit the skids of late losing 6 of their last 8 SU & ATS. They are playing NO defense what so ever giving up 115pts or more in 10 of their 12 games. Ouch. That’s Washington Wizards like. Clips have scored 105pts or more in 10 of their 12 games. That’s a deadly combination for Queens fans. LOVE the Clippers.

6. UNDER 203.5 CLEVELAND vs. NY KNICKS Knicks have lost 4 straight. Their scoring has dropped way off. That’s not a good thing when facing Cleveland which is seeking revenge for an earlier season loss to NY. Cleveland is on a monster, buzzy signal, internet connection is down, Louie the Lip won’t pick up his phone 10-0 UNDER run! Knicks are on a monster 8-1 UNDER run….that’s a combined 18-1 UNDER run. You would have to be the biggest bird brain, butt head, meat head, muttonmouth, moron, cook, crook, croonie, idiot, dope, dunce, dork, fool, jackass in the world to bet the OVER. OPPOSITE PICK: OVER 203.5 Cleveland/NY = WIN

Most points at end of January wins $60 worth of
