Starting Bankroll: $4,925
Merry Christmas everyone! We hope that you all had a great holiday, and that Santa brought you everything you asked for. What a great way to end a holiday weekend then with some great football matchups that are going to clean up the playoff picture. Unfortunately, I am not able to put together an in depth analysis this week because of the holidays. If you have been reading, you would know that I have been a Redskins buyer and Eagles seller, so I would have been able to retire after the Redskins clinching the NFC East last night. But the past is the past, and we’re talking Sunday and Monday games in this posting.
Jacksonville Jaguars (ML +110) over New Orleans Saints for $200
The Saints are good. But they lose. Why? And the Jaguars win. How? I don’t know. The Saints are favored because of 2014. But I like the positive money for the Jaguars, so I’m buying today.
Cincinnati Bengals (ML +165) over Denver Broncos for $400
The Cincinnati Bengals are going to destroy the Denver Broncos. This game has meaning. If the Bengals win, they get a first round Bye for the playoffs. One of OTBRs writers, Jason Fisher, is a serious Bengals fan. I have been telling him since early in the season that the Patriots and the Bengals are getting the first round Bye’s in the AFC, and the AFC Championship game between the Bengals and the Pats will be in New England. And as recent as far back as a month ago, I have been telling Jason that the Bengals are going to destroy the Broncos in this Week 16 matchup. I’m sticking to it. The only thing going for the Broncos is their defense. And their defense is tough. But the Bengals are a complete team. And Andy Dalton is going to rip apart the Denver defense. You heard it here. I just can’t believe that the Bengals are 3 1/2 point underdogs. I love me some positive money.
