  • Event: (471) Seattle Seahawks at (472) New York Giants
    Sport/League: NFL
    Date/Time: October 22, 2017 4PM EDT
    Play: Seattle Seahawks -3.5 (+104)

    The most interesting talk in the New York metro area is which of their football teams will lose the most games. The talk isn't about playoffs or which franchise has the best chance to be a part of January's postseason schedule. Seattle comes into Sunday's affair well rested off a bye. The Giants are injury riddled and will be without their top two receivers for the rest of the season.

    Manning doesn't have wide outs Odell Beckham Jr. or Brandon Marshall and the offensive is having little to no success running the football. Tailback Orleans Darkwa did find success a week ago in Denver after the team took a commanding lead. Darkwa gained 121 yards on 17 carries. Rookie tight end Evan Engram is now Manning’s top target in the passing game. Engram recorded five catches and a season-high 82 yards versus the Broncos. The return of wide receiver Sterling Shepard (ankle) is a game time decision today. Shepard missed last week's win with an ankle injury but practiced on a limited basis this week.

    Injury updates:

    New York's coaching staff believe they will have the services of wide receiver Sterling Shepard (ankle) after practicing in part this past week.

  • Event: (209889) LOS ANGELES at (209890) FC DALLAS
    Sport/League: SOC
    Date/Time: October 22, 2017 4PM EDT
    Play: 1H FC DALLAS -0.5 (-122)

    MLS - Los Angeles at FC Dallas

    Decision Day in the MLS as the season comes to a close and FC Dallas need some help on Sunday. Currently tied for the final playoff spot but on the outside on tiebreaking numbers they'll need a win on Sunday and hope that San Jose stumble in their season finale.  All games are played at the same time so expecting Dallas to get out front early against a Galaxy side that sit tied for last overall.  

    The Play is FC Dallas -0.5 -122 (FIRST HALF PLAY)

  • Event: (467) Arizona Cardinals at (468) Los Angeles Rams
    Sport/League: NFL
    Date/Time: October 22, 2017 1PM EDT
    Play: Arizona Cardinals 3.0 (-105)

    My math model only favors Los Angeles by 1.4 points in this neutral field affair being played in London (Twickenham Stadium), and the Rams are a woeful 3-10 ATS in their last thirteen games overall and 1-10-1 ATS in their last twelve games versus NFC opposition, including 0-5 ATS against NFC West foes.  

    The scheduling dynamics are certainly more difficult for Los Angeles, who is traveling for the third time in four weeks and just returned from a cross country journey to Jacksonville.  In contrast, the Cardinals have played three of their last four games at home, including last week’s 38-33 upset win over Tampa Bay as 2.5-point underdogs. 

    Los Angeles quarterback Jared Goff has certainly improved from last year’s disastrous campaign, but he is still just 3-10 ATS as a starter in the NFL, including 0-8 ATS versus opposition with a secondary that is allowing 5.9 to 7.9 yards per pass attempt on the season. Let’s also note that the second-year signal caller represents an 83.3% ATS losing proposition when laying points in his NFL career.

    The Rams are 0.2 yards per play better than average in 2017 (0.4 yards per play better than average offensively and 0.2 yards per play worse than average defensively).  Los Angeles’ stop unit is yielding 28.7 points and 417 total yards per game at 6.4 yards per play on the road this season, and I expect the Cardinals’ rejuvenated attack to have success behind Adrian Peterson and Carson Palmer.

    In his first game in an Arizona uniform, Peterson gashed Tampa Bay for 134 yards and two touchdowns, averaging 5.2 yards per carry.  The addition of Peterson has allowed the Cardinals to utilize play-action, resulting in more explosive plays downfield to Larry Fitzgerald.  With an improved ground attack behind Peterson, Palmer will see more eight-man fronts which will create one-on-one matchups on the outside.  

    Arizona is averaging 369 total yards at 7.4 yards per pass attempt and 5.9 yards per play over its last three games, and that prediction should only improve with the arrival of Peterson.  In fact, the Rams’ defense has been 0.5 yards per play worse than average against the run in 2017 (4.8 yards per rush attempt to teams that would combine to average just 4.3 yards per rush play against a mediocre front seven).  

    From a technical standpoint, the Rams are 0-7 ATS since November 20, 2016 following a game in which they had more punts than third down conversions.  Since October 30, 2011, the Cardinals are 6-0 ATS as an underdog off a game in which they allowed 100+ passing yards more than their opponent’s season-average.  The Rams are 3-12 ATS in their last fifteen games as favorites in this series and 5-24 ATS as a division favorite.  

    Finally, Arizona head coach Bruce Arians is 10-2 ATS following a SU and ATS win versus foes coming off a SU and ATS win.  Grab the points with the Cardinals and invest with confidence.

  • Event: (457) Baltimore Ravens at (458) Minnesota Vikings
    Sport/League: NFL
    Date/Time: October 22, 2017 1PM EDT
    Play: Minnesota Vikings -5.0 (-108)

    I'm recommending a play on the Minnesota Vikings minus the points on Sunday.  The Baltimore offense is an absolute disaster.  They're completely one-dimensional, unable to pass the football with any kind of consistent success. The only mode of transportation that has worked at all this season has been the ground game, but they're running into the 3rd stingiest run defense in the NFL.  Last week was so bad, not only did they gain just 291 total yards, but the Ravens' offense didn't score a single TD.  Defensively, the Ravens are one of the three worst teams against the run and we expect the Vikings' offense, ranked 12th in both the run and pass, to be able to distance themselves from Baltimore throughout the course of the contest.  The Vikings are on a 20-6 ATS run at home and we'll lay the points on Sunday. Thanks & GL!  Scott Spreitzer.
