Emory's Past Picks
ALL

Tampa Bay 30 @ New Orleans 20 | 01/17 | 11:40 PM UTC

New Orleans -3

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Saints were the last team to beat an opponent three times in one season. They did it in 2017 against the Panthers. While I expect the Bucs to not turn this game into the turnoverfest it was during the teams' second matchup, I don't expect them to gain much traction offensively against a stout Saints defense. Lay the points with New Orleans.

+710 16-8 IN LAST 24 NO ATS PICKS

Cleveland 17 @ Kansas City 22 | 01/17 | 8:05 PM UTC

Cleveland +10

WIN

ANALYSIS: A good run game and an opportunistic defense can win you games in the NFL. While the Browns may not get the win, that formula they have with Nick Chubb, Kareem Hunt and defensive end Myles Garrett should be enough to help them keep this a one-possession game.

+588 22-15-1 IN LAST 38 KC ATS PICKS
+480 7-2 IN LAST 9 CLE ATS PICKS

Baltimore 3 @ Buffalo 17 | 01/17 | 1:15 AM UTC

Baltimore +2.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Ravens can run the heck out of the football, and they have the ability to pressure the QB. On the outside, the Ravens press corners will force Josh Allen to hold the football longer than he wants to, and, defensively, I don't believe the Bills have enough to stop the power run game of Baltimore. Take the Ravens and the points.

+735 15-7 IN LAST 22 BAL ATS PICKS
+80 4-3 IN LAST 7 BUF ATS PICKS

L.A. Rams 18 @ Green Bay 32 | 01/16 | 9:35 PM UTC

L.A. Rams +6.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Rams have two elite defenders in Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey, plus a healthier offensive line that can move the pile. Look for the Rams defense and run game to keep this one very close.

+490 7-2 IN LAST 9 GB ATS PICKS

Ohio St. 24 @ Alabama 52 | 01/12 | 1:00 AM UTC

Ohio St. +7.5

LOSS

ANALYSIS: Ohio State picked a great time to have its pass rush to show up, as it will be needed against Alabama. The Buckeyes match up well versus the Crimson Tide and have the 'Plus-1' in the running game (Justin Fields) that tends to cause problems for Nick Saban-coached defenses. With everything on the line, I expect Alabama to play its tightest game of the season.

+570 9-3 IN LAST 12 BAMA ATS PICKS
+415 13-8-1 IN LAST 22 OHIOST ATS PICKS
