🚀 HUSTLE BOOST: A way to pull for the Bills & Bengals

THE MAIN EVENT

Patriots (+8) @ Bills

PointsBet Data and Insights

KICKOFF: 1:00 p.m. ET

KEY FACTS: Will Damar Hamlin’s glorious recovery 🏥 inspire the Bills? Or might Buffalo lack an edge? The Bills need to win to lock up the AFC’s No. 2 seed, while the Patriots can clinch a playoff berth with a ‘W.’ The Bills dominated their Week 12 matchup, holding New England to 60 rushing yards in a 24-10 drubbing.

TRENDING: The Patriots have been patsies against winning teams, failing to cover four straight 🤷🏽.

INSIGHT: America wants the Bills to win – and cover. But while 71% of tickets are on Buffalo, 56% of the cash 💰 is on Belichick.

EXPERT PICKS

Our new PointsBet capper is Ariel Epstein, aka "The Prop Queen." She joins PointsBet studio host Ryan Leaf and NBC lead betting analyst Jay Croucher on a packed NFL Sunday.

THE PROP QUEEN

Mac Jones Over 33.5 Pass Attempts (-120)
"If the Pats are playing from behind, he'll throw a ton against a defense that yields 35.3 per game. That's ninth most in the NFL."
Jamaal Williams Over 55.5 Rushing Yards (-115)
"He rushed for 81 yards on 24 carries the last time these teams met. And Green Bay is bottom-10 against the run."

THE BIG NAME

Steelers/Browns SGP: Steelers -2.5 & Under 40.5 (+230)
"While the Browns dream of off-season beaches, the Steelers play for a ton. Scoring will be at a premium. Pittsburgh 17, Cleveland 7."
Packers -5 vs. Lions (-110)
"The Lions will know their fate after Seattle wins. The Packers have everything to play for."

THE BRAIN

Vikings -6.5 vs. Bears (-115)
"With Nathan Peterman at QB, Chicago may have the worst offense and defense in the league."
Eagles -16 vs. Giants (-110)
"Giants starters lost by 26 to Philly a month ago. The backups will do well to get that close."

PROS vs. JOES

The last time the Chargers faced the Broncos, Justin Herbert attempted 57 passes.

Spread tickets indicate public money. Spread handle reflects sharp action. Let’s dive in:

1. Jets (+3.5) @ Dolphins

  • Pros: Jets 75% handle
  • Joes: Dolphins 66% tickets

💡 The Joes are fading old man Joe Flacco. Understandably. The Pros are fading rookie Skylar Thompson. Understandably.

2. Chargers (+3) @ Broncos

  • Pros: Broncos 61% handle
  • Joes: Chargers 65% tickets

💡 The betting public loves Justin Herbert – maybe it’s the curls. The Pros did their homework and figured the Bolts would rest him. As a result this line has tilted 5.5 points toward Denver.

3. Cardinals @ 49ers; Total 39.5

  • Pros: Under 72% handle
  • Joes: Over 59% tickets

💡 The Joes see a sub-40 Over/Under and pounce. And hey, Deebo Samuel is back! The sharps figure that fourth-string QB David Blough (rhymes with Plow) will find the sledding tough against San Fran.

FIXIN' TO WIN WITH MIXON

PROPS TO THESE PROPS

Our three faves:

  • Bengals RB Joe Mixon Over 50.5 rushing yards (-120): The Ravens are rough on ballcarriers, but Mixon is way better (90 yards per game) when playing in Cincy.
  • Steelers QB Kenny Pickett Under 1.5 passing TDs (-240): Pickett doesn’t flick it to the end zone often: He has zero games with multiple TD passes. And the Browns are stingy.
  • Seahawks QB Geno Smith Over 300 passing yards (+350): He lit up the Rams last month (367 yards). And how’s this for an L.A. story 🎥 – a playoff berth is on the line.

PointsBet Data and Insights

Here’s how we’d bet the SNF (8:20 p.m. ET) duel : Lions (+5) @ Packers:

🏈 [$35] Packers WR Allen Lazard ⬆️ 50.5 receiving yards (-115): He torched the Lions in earlier meeting (10 catches, 87 yards) and Aaron Rodgers has targeted him 30 times more than any teammate.

🏈 [$20] on Packers QB Aaron Rodgers ⬆️ 1.5 passing TDs (-135): Rodgers was fed to the Lions during their last meeting – a 3-INT stinker. History won’t repeat against Motown’s 30th-ranked pass ‘D.’

🏈 [$30] on the Under (49): The Lions have gone Over in seven of their last eight, but Jared Goff (0-4 ATS in “freezing” temps) is not built for the great outdoors.

🏈 [$15] on Lions RB D’Andre Swift ⬆️ 35.5 rushing yards (-120): Not much to ask considering the Pack rank 26th in rushing defense.
