    Buffalo on the road @ -2.5 against the Dolphins isn't a bad pick for one of your six picks. Bills have a playoff spot to play for but they need help also. Dolphins have nothing to play for and probably Cutler's last game as a Dolphin. Most likely a close game.

    I feel the same way, just hope it isn't a trap line/game. Worth a 1u bet.

    Out of those I’d take the Browns, Niners, and cowboys. They’re no brainers at this point

    A little bit of a late post but I have a decent lean on the Clippers -2 here. I took them for 3u. I think the "loss" of Austin Rivers actually does them good here, as he has a season +/- of -45. Small line value but throw in NYE game for Charlotte makes me think theyll be a bit flat

    Good call, didn't realize Austin Rivers numbers were that bad. Kind of understand why Chris Paul was feuding with Coach Doc Rivers (one of the main reasons) and his supposed preferential treatment of his son in past years and part of why he left.

    They're not THAT bad, in theory. its -45 but through 32 games, which is an average of -1.4 points per game. The Clippers as a team average -0.5 points per game this season (which is around an average team). But if we look at their first meeting in Charlotte, the Clippers were 5 point underdogs and that was before Teodosic came back from injury. For the record, Teodosic has the HIGHEST plus minus on the Clippers at +89 through 10 games played. So with all that taken to account, the betting line didnt make any adjustments for Teodosic playing and Rivers not playing

    Just to be super anal: In the first meeting between these two teams, Rivers was 3-14 shooting and finished with just 9 points, 3 assists, and 3 turnovers in 34 minutes played and had a -19 point differential in a game that the Clippers lost by 15

    edit @quincy k this is how i try to find line value when injuries are involved

    So this is why I suck at betting football

    Ravens are my team

    All week I’ve told myself you need to hit the bengals at +10.5. It’s going to be a close game. Just like last week with the colts. I knew the lines were way too generous for bmore

    So today I end up hitting the bengals for 10.5.

    I don’t want to root against my team so I play bmore -5 AND I pay -400 for bmore ml, because I’m an idiot

    So my lack of discipline combined with degeneracy ends up costing me big two weeks in a row
