We have a full slate tonight. Playoff baseball, Thursday Night College football, and Of course the NFL
I have 3 plays for you tonight.
The first comes in the NFL game between the Patriots and the Giants. The Giants travel to Foxboro and the Patriots are laying 17. Yikes. Ugly game, odds makers are begging you to bet the Giants, but we aren’t touching a side.
The Play is first half over 21. Prediction 17-7
The Patriots were slow out the gates last week against a bad Redskins team, but I anticipate them not having that be an issue this week back at home. As long as the Giants can manage one first half score the first half should go over. Brady might get the 21 in the first half all by himself. Don’t look for a super bowl repeat from these teams. Michael Strahan isn’t coming through that tunnel tonight.
Second pick comes in the elimination playoff game. Cole threw an absolute gem with 15Ks in game two and is fully rested. The Astros are at home for an elimination game and are a nearly 3-1 favorite at -290.
I rarely do these but the play is the Astros run line -1.5 (-120) Prediction: Astros 7 Rays 2. For the love of God let the Astros win. I can’t have the Yankees walk to a World Series. I don’t like a world where the Yankees dominate. Can’t have it
My last play comes in the college game tonight. Between two bad teams in Syracuse and North Carolina State. North Carolina State is coming off a loss to a team that I actually think is slowly figuring it out in Florida State, and Syracuse is coming off a meaningless win against Holy Cross. I’ve watched Syracuse a few times this year and wow they are awful. I don’t anticipate this being a pretty game, but I do expect the better team at home to win tonight
The play NC State -4.5 Prediction: NC State 28 Syracuse 17
