NHL Game #51 Monday – Rickenbach Free Pick Nashville Predators Money Line (+) @ Philadelphia Flyers @ 7:05 ET – Tough spot for the Flyers. I know they are off of a loss that ended a 10-game losing streak and so many will be looking to back them here. However, Philadelphia has a HUGE game on deck with Washington. Remember that it was Alexander Ovechkin and the Capitals that knocked Philly out of the playoffs last spring in a series where the Flyers gave them a spirited battle all the way through. It  is simply impossible for Philadelphia to not at least be “peeking” ahead to that match-up with the division rival Caps. They also are likely catching the Predators at the wrong time. Nashville is not happy about the fact that they have lost back to back games and 6 of their last 8. What strengthens this situation as a good spot for a play on the Preds is that, though they struggled badly in October, Nashville has not lost 3 straight games since that opening month of the season. Look for them to “bear down hard” here at Philly as they look to “get right” on this quick two game road trip to the northeast. The Flyers have lost 29 of 48 when they are off of a loss by 2 goals or more in their prior game. The Predators have won 27 of 41 after scoring 1 goal or less in their prior game. Free Pick on NASHVILLE on the money line Monday

Oakland Raiders vs. San Diego Chargers Betting Pick from Jimmy Boyd: December 18th 2016

Oakland Raiders vs. San Diego Chargers
Betting Pick: Chargers +2.5 (December 18th 2016)

The perception here is that Oakland is going to rebound off their loss to KC. At the same time, the Chargers are a team that is trending in the wrong direction with nothing to play for. Given these circumstances the betting public will be all over the Raiders in this spot. Oddsmakers don’t seemed to concerned, as they are enticing action on Oakland. I’m going to side with the books here and lean towards San Diego at home.

I know the Raiders loss at KC was their first defeat away from home on the season (previously 6-0). However, it was also their first time playing a division road game. Winning on the road inside division play is no easy task. Especially in a competitive division like the AFC West. Arguably the best in the NFL.

At the same time, San Diego isn’t going to lay down for the Raiders. The fact that the Chargers are still a live for a playoff spot helps, but they were going to show up here regardless. San Diego certainly isn’t going to be intimidated by the Raiders, as they have to feel like they gave them the game against them earlier this season.

I also think this is a good matchup for the Chargers. Oakland’s defense is one of the worst in the league. They come in ranked 26th against the run (120.2 ypg) and 27th against the pass (264.3 ypg). They made Alex Smith look elite in the 1st half last week. Philip Rivers should have a field day against the defense. Much like he did in the first meeting this season, when he threw for 359 yards and 4 scores.

Oakland’s offense is legit, but Derek Carr is clearly not 100% with that pinky injury. There’s a lot of pressure on him to play well, because the defense is going to give up points here. Keep in mind San Diego’s defense completely shutdown the Raiders running game back in Week 5. Oakland had just 89 yards on 25 attempts (3.6 yards/carry). If Carr struggles at all here, the Chargers could pull away for a comfortable win. Take San Diego!

Tennessee Titans vs. Kansas City Chiefs Week 15 NFL Betting Pick from Dave Price: December 18th 2016

Tennessee Titans vs. Kansas City Chiefs
Week 15 NFL Betting Pick: Titans +6 (December 18th 2016)

The Tennessee Titans are built to be a cold-weather team, so the frigid temperatures at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City won’t affect them at all this week.  The Titans rank 3rd in the NFL in rushing at 144.5 yards per game.  That makes this an excellent matchup for them because the Chiefs rank 27th in the NFL in run defense, giving up 122.9 yards per game and 4.3 per carry on the season.  That run defense just got a lot worse as star LB Derrick Johnson just went out with a season-ending injury last week.  Johnson is the heart and soul of their defense, and I don’t think his absence is being factored enough into this line.

The Chiefs are overvalued after winning and covering in 3 straight games that they easily could have and probably should have lost, especially the games against the Broncos and Falcons in which they managed to score 25 non-offensive points combined.  The Chiefs rank 29th in yardage differential (-41.6 yards per game) which isn’t the sign of a team that should be 10-3.  They lost at home to the Bucs a few weeks back and are now just 2-7 ATS in their last 9 home games.  The road team is 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings.  Take Tennessee.
