SATURDAY’S NFL BETS WE LIKE
Sticking with the early game, we also like the Vikings to cover -3.5 as they have covered in each of their past seven against AFC opponents.
The Colts have lost their past three.
We also like Davin Cook to go over 69.5 yards (-115).
— In the afternoon game, the Lamar Jackson-less Ravens try to stay in the playoff race as they visit the rival Browns.
Cleveland is a 2.5-point favorite at home despite losing its past two games to all but extinguish its playoff hopes.
But Deshaun Watson looked much better last week against the Bengals as the Browns are using these final games to set him up for next season.
We think he has a nice day today — as does tight end David Njoku and we’ll take him +310 to score.
— We’re also going to take Amari Cooper as an anytime touchdown scorer at +195. Will take J.K. Dobbins for the same odds.
— The Dolphins come into what should be a messy Orchard Park 7.5-point underdogs and while we think that is probably too much, we do not have much confidence in Miami at all in this one.
The Dolphins, after all, went 0-2 in their California road trip with losses to the 49ers and Chargers and have not fared well in Buffalo the past couple of seasons.
This game does look like it will be a defensive struggle and we’ll take the under at 43.5.
