Detroit Lions

  • The Detroit Lions earned their first victory of the season over the Minnesota Vikings.
  • The Cincinnati Bearcats clinched a spot in the College Football Playoff with a win over Houston.
  • The Alabama Crimson Tide beat the Georgia Bulldogs and reclaimed the top seed in the College Football playoff.

LAS VEGAS – This past weekend finalized the four teams making the College Football playoff, and included one major upset in the NFL that saw one team secure their first victory of the season.

Detroit Gets Their First Win

The Detroit Lions (+7) secured their first win of the season, with a 29-27 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. The Lions put together an epic game-winning drive that concluded with an 11-yard touchdown pass to Amon-Ra-St Brown, as time expired.

This loss to the Detroit Lions, has Minnesota head coach Mike Zimmer firmly on the coaching hot seat. Zimmer now has +200 odds to be the first coach fired – second overall.

John Harbaugh Goes For Two

The Pittsburgh Steelers (+4) kept their postseason hopes alive, with a 20-19 victory over the Baltimore Ravens.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh made a questionable decision to go for two and the win, after receiver Sammy Watkins scored with 16 seconds remaining to bring the Ravens to within one point.

Massive Favorites All Cover

It was a good day to back the large favorites in the NFL, as every favorite of more than 7 points covered this week.

  • Dallas Cowboys (-7) over New Orleans Saints
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-11) over Atlanta Falcons
  • Indianapolis Colts (-10) over Houston Texans
  • Los Angeles Rams (-14) over Jacksonville Jaguars
  • Denver Broncos (-8.5) over Kansas City Chiefs

Convincing victories from the Chiefs and Buccaneers, will serve to shorten both team’s odds of winning Super Bowl LVI.

Miami Dolphins ATS Dominance

The Miami Dolphins (-6) enjoyed an easy 20-9 victory over the New York Giants this past Sunday.

The Dolphins are among the league’s hottest teams right now, winning and covering the spread for their fifth straight game.
