Betting tips and predictions for Ravens at Browns and Dolphins at Bills
My partner on one of this week's Winners Circle NFL videos, Big Al McMordie and I take a look at the week 15 NFL card and talk College Bowl handicapping strategy. In addition, we make predictions for the Baltimore at Cleveland and the Dolphins, possibly in the snow, at the Buffalo Bills. Read below and watch the video for some NFL betting advice for Saturday.
Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills Preview and Pick
Saturday, 12/17 at 1PM ET
Current Line: Buffalo -7, Total 44 at BetOnline
These two teams met way back in Week 3 and the Dolphins came out with a surprising 21-19 win. But this was a nearly a lifetime ago and when I look at the numbers from that game, the Bills out gained Miami by wide margin of 497-212, yet they failed to win. Still, Buffalo is 5-0 SU and ATS the last five times the Fish have come north.
Buffalo comes into this game riding a four game winning streak, while Miami, after looking like a Super Bowl contender for much of the season, has lost their last two and only gained 308 and 219 yards in those two contests. Buffalo currently hold a two-game lead over the Dolphins in the AFC East, but Miami holds the tie-breaker, if the division would come to that.
Miami needed a heater last week in San Diego where it was 53 degrees. It hasn't been above 50 in Buffalo for week sand the Saturday night gametime temperature for the game will be a sub-freezing 22 and it will be snowing! I'll take Buffalo here, as the better team at home wins by more than a TD.
Baltimore Ravens at Cleveland Browns Preview
Saturday, 12/17 at 4:30PM ET
Current Line: Cleveland -3, Total 38 at MyBookie
Lamar Jackson is out and backup Tyler Huntley probably will play, but is currently in the concussion protocol. The trends have shown just how terrible the Browns are playing at home with revenge, and they are off an earlier season loss to Baltimore, but with the Ravens quarterback situation, this game needs a closer look. Especially when we see another home team with a losing record, favored over a team with a winning record.
