Best Bet No. 1: Browns +6.0 (-110)

Although the Cleveland Browns (5-7) were victorious in Deshaun Watson’s return from suspension last week, the win didn’t exactly instill much confidence across the NFL landscape. On Sunday, Watson gets another chance to showcase his talents and endear himself among the passionate fanbase down in Cleveland as the Browns take on their cross-state rivals, the Cincinnati Bengals (8-4).

Newsflash: This game will be a lot tougher (and closer) than most football fans anticipate as playoff seeding and positioning ramps up. For starters, Joe Burrow has never defeated the Browns and is 0-4 lifetime against them. In addition, Cleveland still has an outside chance of making the playoffs, which should give them plenty of motivation to come up big on both sides of the ball. Nick Chubb will look to stamp his authority on this one after a mediocre performance (by his standards) last week in Houston. The Bengals should prevail victorious, but I like Cleveland at +6.0.

Best Bet No. 2: Chigoziem Okonkwo Over 25.5 Receiving Yards (-110)

Tennessee Titans right end Chigoziem Okonkwo has been one of the biggest revelations in the NFL this season. After a fairly slow start to the year, Okonkwo has picked up in recent weeks, amassing 223 yards through the air over his past five games. Okonkwo’s receiving yard prop is set at 25.5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, which seems quite low given how well he and the Titans are playing. I intend on smashing the over against a fairly porous Jags defense. Quite simply, this is a player who is growing in confidence, seeing more volume, and is an athletic freak of nature. Lock in this prop as soon as you can, folks.

Best Bet No. 3: Eagles vs. Giants Under 45.5 (-110)

A divisional game outdoors in December? Lean towards the under, football fans. Rivalries are renewed on Sunday afternoon as the Philadelphia Eagles (11-1) travel to Metlife Stadium to take on the New York Giants (7-4-1). It’s Brian Daboll against Nick Sirianni in what should be a competitive game from start to finish between two NFC East divisional foes. 

We all know about the lethal passing game that comes with the Eagles’ offense, but over the past few weeks, Philadelphia has shown that they can move the ball on the ground, too. Against the run in 2022, the Giants have allowed 141.1 yards per game, which will play right into the hands of Jalen Hurts and Miles Sanders. In addition, the prevalence of Saquon Barkley out of the Giants’ backfield should eat a lot of clock all afternoon long. The weather in East Rutherford, N.J., is also expected to play a fairly significant factor in the game. The forecast includes rain and a bitter temperature of 42 degrees Fahrenheit at kickoff. The more I think about this bet, the more confidence I gain. Don’t hesitate for a second; ride with the under.
