Cincinnati’s 34-13 romp over Philadelphia last Thursday night as a 4.5-point road favorite was its fifth win in its last six games. It is now 8-6 straight-up (7-6-1 against the spread) and just one game in back of Baltimore in the AFC North Division title race. The Bengals are 5-2 both SU and ATS on the road this season and the total has stayed UNDER in five of their last six games.
Houston fell below .500 on the year with Sunday’s 103-96 loss to Toronto as a four-point road favorite. It is now 11-12 straight-up and 10-12-1 against the spread. The total stayed UNDER the 200.5-point line and has now stayed UNDER in five of its last seven games. The Rockets also fell to 2-7 SU and 2-6-1 ATS on the road this season.
Conference-USA’s East Carolina Pirates come into this early bowl season showdown with an overall record of 8-4 straight-up and a 6-6 record against the spread. The Pirates closed-out the season with the total going OVER in four of their last five games including a wild 65-59 overtime victory over Marshall as a 6.5-point home favorite in its season finale.
In what should be the ‘game of the year’ in the AFC, the Texans come into this showdown at 11-1 straight-up (8-4 against the spread) and still looking to clinch the AFC South over the pesky Colts. A win or Indianapolis loss would lock things up, but Houston has its sights set on a much bigger prize; the No.1 seed in the conference throughout the playoffs.
Detroit’s brief run at a return trip to the playoffs this season came to an end with a current four-game losing streak that dropped its overall record to 4-8 straight-up and 5-7 against the spread. Give credit to the Lions for keeping things close against Houston and Indianapolis the past two weeks, but this team has forgotten how to close-out games to get the win.
It has been one heck of a roller-coaster ride for New Orleans this season but it has pretty much come to an end with last Thursday night’s 23-13 loss to Atlanta as a 3.5-point road underdog. The Saints fell to 5-7 straight-up and 6-6 against the spread on the year and out of the playoff race. The total has stayed UNDER in four of its last six games.
New York moved to the top of the standings in the Eastern Conference with its 100-98 victory over Charlotte this past Wednesday night but could not cover as a 7.5-point home favorite. It is now 13-4 straight-up on the season and 11-6 against the spread. The total ended as a PUSH against the Bobcats but it had gone OVER in five of the Knicks previous seven games.
Dallas comes into this Western Conference matchup at 8-9 straight-up and 7-10 against the spread after rolling over Detroit 92-77 as a seven-point home favorite this past Saturday. It was just the second SU victory in their last six games as the Mavericks already find themselves five games in back of Memphis in the Southwest Division. The total has stayed UNDER in three of its last four games.
The Giants are up to their old tricks with a 38-10 pasting of Green Bay last Sunday as one-point home favorites after posting back-to-back losses to Pittsburgh and Cincinnati both straight-up and against the spread. They come into this crucial NFC East showdown at 7-5 SU (5-5-1 ATS) overall and 3-2 SU (3-1-1 ATS) on the road. The total has stayed UNDER in five of their last six games.
Minnesota started the season like a house on fire with four straight-up wins in their first five games, but those flames have been doused with just one victory in its last four. The Vikings are now an even 6-5 SU on the year and 4-6-1 against the spread. The total has gone OVER in three of its last four games.
