    Analysis:

    This is a different Chiefs team. They don't beat you down with a ton of points. They do it with their defense, as they made the Ravens look discombobulated. On their first two drives, the Chiefs methodically moved down the field for touchdowns. Patrick Mahomes gets eight yards at a time and keeps the other team off the field. I can see him doing that again. He's the best who's ever done it. I'm also betting against Brock Purdy, like I did in the NFC title game. His running won the game, but otherwise, he was a little fortunate. Mahomes knows how to manage the game, and that's what will win this matchup.

    Analysis:

    The Cowboys won all eight of their home games going 6-2 ATS and they’ve gotten Over 8-8-1 on the season despite averaging a home score of 37-15. They didn’t get Over in their last five games overall which included home Unders to the Lions and the Eagles. The Cowboys will score at home, but I need the Packers to help with the high number. The Packers come in on a three-game win streak and have been aided by QB Jordan Love throwing 18 TD passes to 1 interception between his last eight starts winning six of them. The Packers went 10-7 to the Over this season, including six of their last seven getting Over. Over might be the best bet of this playoff round.

    Analysis:

    When the odds are against the Dolphins they routinely show that the oddsmakers were correct. As an underdog this season, the Dolphins are 1-5 SU and ATS. However, the Chiefs have struggled recently. They don’t seem like an overwhelming favorite. It’s expected to be 4 degrees with 16 mph winds and 18% chance of precipitation. The No. 1 offense of the Dolphins against the No. 2 defense of the Chiefs. The weather will play a role and favor the better running team and that’s Miami which averages an NFL-best 5.1 ypc. The Chiefs went 5-5 in their last 10, 4-6 ATS and they went only 4-4 at home with such an advantage. I took Miami and the points.

    Analysis:

    The Browns No. 1 defense is allowing just 270 ypg but they’ve gone Over the total in six of their last seven games. They’re also the third-best cover team at 11-6 ATS. They won at Houston in Week 16, but QB C.J. Stroud was out. The Browns rested players last week and ended their four-game win and cover streak. QB Joe Flacco is slinging it like it’s 2010 again. Flacco has been a weapon. But the reason I bet this game was that No. 1 defense. I’m on the Browns to cover.

    Analysis:

    UNLV lost at San Diego State on Saturday to drop to 7-6 (5-6 ATS) in UNLV coach Kevin Kruger’s third season. Three seasons and three completely different teams. Have to love the transfer portal. The Rebels have done the most with it. They beat Creighton as 13.5-point underdogs, but that was a one-game magic trick. New Mexico and coach Richard Pitino have guided the Lobos to a 13-2 record (10-4 ATS) with the leadership of their two senior guards Jamal Mashburn Jr and Jaelen House. The Lobos have played strong defense allowing only 40.5% shooting. New Mexico moneyline.

    Analysis:

    Minnesota is starting to come back to earth. They played at such a high level to start the season, but what’s happening now is they’re 5-5 over the last 10, and the rating showing it’s too high daily because they’re 2-8 ATS over the same span. They’ve lost three of their last four, Franz Wagner is out for the Magic but they’ve been managing. On the other end, the Magic have gone 5-5 in their last 10 but 8-2 ATS. The Magic are 13-5 at home. I took the points with the Magic.

    Analysis:

    Something has got to give with Washington’s No. 1 passing team (357 ypg) against Michigan’s No. 2 defense (244 ypg) which is No. 1 in scoring defense (10.2 ppg). It seemed Michigan could confuse Alabama defensively in key situations and Texas had no clue how to slow Michael Penix Jr and the Huskies throwing game that hit 430 yards on New Year's Day. The Wolverines pass rush will be the driving force behind making Penix uncomfortable. But in the end, it’s got to be the Michigan offense that shines and stars against a Huskies team averaging 417 ypg. Michigan’s lowest margin of victory is 6-points against Ohio State. Michigan to cover the number.

    Analysis:

    Monmouth has come a long way since last season when they only won seven games. They’ve been underrated all season and have already won eight games. The covering aspect tells the entire story. They’re 10-3-1 ATS and have won their last five games at home. Monmouth has a pair of guards – Xander Rice and Jack Collins – doing the bulk of the scoring and the team is shooting 37.2% from 3-range. They held Towson to 16-of-60 (27%) shooting in their last game. Monmouth to cover.

    Analysis:

    The Lakers beat the Clippers in overtime on Nov 1 to end a Clippers 11-game win streak. But the Lakers are a much different team from November. They’ve lost their last four and nine of 11. Anthony Davis and LeBron James are listed on the injury report, probable and questionable, daily and now there’s an alleged rift with coach Darvin Ham. The Clippers have won five straight and covered their last four. They look like the best team in the NBA right now. Clippers to cover.

    Analysis:

    The Chargers will be fired up with hopes to close the year out strong even though they’re 1-7 in their last eight games, half with Justin Herbert and the other half with Easton Stick. Herbert won the lone game, 6-0, at New England. The Chiefs are resting Patrick Mahomes (Blaine Gabbert is starting) and a few other key players, but the Chargers don’t have WR Keenan Allen or DE Joey Bosa. The Chiefs that are playing are a better group than what the Chargers are offering and the SoFi Stadium crowd will be pro-Chiefs. I took the points with the Chiefs.

    Four starters returned from Northern Iowa’s 14-18 team last season but they look the same at 7-7 so far. Indiana State won both meetings last season and has begun this season 12-2 while shooting 51% from the field and 40% from 3-land, both are fourth-best in the nation. They average an 87-72 score and have gotten Over 10 out of 13 games. NIU is a tough place to play, but Indiana State is going to keep rolling. Indiana State moneyline.

Jalen Brunson put 29 points while Julius Randle got away with 1-11 shooting. The Wizards played last night and lost at Cleveland 114-90 and they laid down again at Cleveland on Wednesday 140-101. The Knicks to win and cover tonight.

    I think we can expect a shootout at Eastern Washington today with North Dakota State visiting and the total looks 10-points too light. NDSU averages a 76-72 score and has gotten Over the total in eight of their 12 games. So has EWU with a 78-72 score and while they’re 7-7, they cover well going 9-3 ATS. Both teams shoot well over 47%. Over is the play here.

    Analysis:

    The Steelers have won six of the last seven meetings against the Ravens, including a 17-10 win in Week 5. QB Lamar Jackson and other key Ravens players will rest for the contest. Pittsburgh on the other hand gets to fight for their lives to make the playoffs. More of QB Mason Rudolph for the Steelers who have now won two straight. If they win, they hang around and watch the other games with hopes of maneuvering into the playoffs. Tyler Huntley will start for Jackson while Kenny Pickett will back up Rudolph. The Steelers have gone Over in their last four games. I've seen too many 2-3 point wins in this series. Moneyline. But the Steelers take care of their part.

    Analysis:

    The Jazz get the ultimate test tonight to show they have changed for the better. Things are clicking in Utah who has won six of their last seven games (6-1 ATS). But what I find most interesting is that they started the streak on the road with three wins when they had only two road wins up until Dec. 21. Celtics may take the Jazz lightly tonight, but I think we’re in for a good game with the rested Jazz. I took the points.
