Teaser Pick 2: Miami vs. Baltimore and Washington vs. Arizona

The Teaser: Pair Miami and Washington

Game 1: Miami vs. Baltimore

The Initial Line:

Miami +3.5 away vs. Baltimore

The Take:

Add 8 points to Miami’s line

The Final Line:

Miami +11.5

The Breakdown:

Miami kept their win streak going, as they outlasted San Francisco at home 31-24 for their 6th straight victory. Baltimore was able to secure the home win against a divisional opponent, as they fought off Cincinnati 19-14. Miami’s defense has continued to get better as the season has progressed, as they now have 15 turnovers on the year. They’ve also gotten an established running game with the emergence of Jay Ajayi, who’s 3rd in the NFL with a 5.3 yards/attempt average. Baltimore has had an up and down year, as the offense has been shaky at times behind Joe Flacco. Despite a win by 21 pts against a Cleveland squad who’s winless, Baltimore’s other 5 wins have come by 7 points or less which shows that they are not dominating teams. Miami will keep this close, if they don’t win outright to continue their win streak.

Game 2: Washington vs. Arizona

The Initial Line:

Washington +2.5 away vs. Arizona

The Take:

Add 8 points to Washington’s line

The Final Line:

Washington +10.5

The Breakdown:

Washington fell short of the divisional upset, as they lost on Thanksgiving on the road to Dallas 31-26. Arizona continues to struggle to put it together this season, as they were dominated on the road by Atlanta 38-19. Washington had won 2 straight before their recent loss, but their offense continues to roll right along. They have now scored 26 or more points in 4 straight games, and Kirk Cousins is leading the way as he ranks 2nd in passing yards and 6th in total QBR. Arizona now sits at 4-6-1 and is trying to find any way to get out of their funk. Being at home should help, but I’m surprised they’re even favored in this game given Washington’s consistency. Grabbing Washington with extra points just makes it even sweeter, take them here.
