featured game | Cincinnati Bengals vs. Baltimore Ravens

lamar jackson will not play on Sunday and tyler huntley He’s not 100 percent, so the Bengals will win this game. They have momentum, while the Ravens don’t. Cincinnati just beat Baltimore 27-16 last week, and I like that this game is in Queen City again. Another reason you should consider putting the points with the Bengals is because they went 4-0 ATS in the postseason last year, even covering the number in the super bowl loss.

featured game | Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Dallas Cowboys

If you’re looking to bet on Cowboys-Bucs, you better see what SportsLine senior analyst Larry Hartstein thinks about the matchup. In addition to entering the 2022 NFL season 427-344 all-time in NFL secondary selections (plus $3,764 per $100 players), Hartstein is 15-3 (+1170) in his last 18 selections involving the Cowboys, which means he’s uniquely qualified to make this pick. We can tell you that he is leaning on the total, but to see the choice of him against the spread you’ll have to go to SportsLine.

“The Cowboys usually wait until the postseason to fall apart, but this year, it seems like they started things a little early. Dallas lost two of its last four regular-season games and the main reason it happened is because dak prescott he has apparently forgotten how to play soccer.

“Since returning from his right thumb injury in Week 7, Prescott just hasn’t been the same quarterback, and while you’d think he’d slowly improve each week, that just hasn’t been the case. Since Week 12, Prescott has thrown 11 interceptions, which is more than any other QB in the NFL in that span.

“Thanks to those 11 interceptions, Prescott finished tied for the NFL lead with 15 picks on the season, which I only point to because it makes him the FIRST QB IN NFL HISTORY to miss at least five games and STILL leads the league. league in interceptions.That’s right up there with “who can eat the most jars of butter in 90 seconds” on the list of records you never want to break.

“Basically, on one side of this game, you have a quarterback who can’t stop throwing interceptions and on the other side, you have the most successful NFL quarterback of all time: tom brady. If Brady had been able to personally pick his wild-card opponent, my guess is he would have picked the Cowboys and that’s mostly because if there’s one team the Bucs will be very confident of beating, it’s Dallas. for one, the buccaneers They’ve already beaten the Cowboys this season, and two, Brady HAS NEVER LOST TO THE COWBOYS IN HIS CAREER (7-0).

“Also, this game is being played in Tampa Bay, which is remarkable, because they have a grass field in Tampa and Dallas tends to have turf issues for whatever reason. The Cowboys have played five games on grass this season and have gone 1-4 in those games. Eagles, Commandersjaguars and packersand his only victory was against a titans team that was forced to start a quarterback (Josh Dobbs) who had only been on the roster for nine days. Even then, the Cowboys still had trouble pulling Tennessee away (the game was 17-13 in the fourth quarter). Defensively, the Cowboys have given up an average of 27.2 points in their five games played on grass. In the 12 games not played on grass, the Cowboys allowed just 17.1 points per game, a whopping 10.1 point difference.

“On paper, this game feels like a mismatch, but Tom Brady doesn’t believe on paper, so I’m going to ignore the talent disparity and just go with the team I trust the most right now and that’s the Buccaneers. “. – CBS Sports NFL writer John Breech explains why he likes the Bucs to beat the Cowboys, 20-17.
