2nd BIGGEST RELEASE SINCE SITE DEBUT
Top-Rated 100 Dime Winner # 9 of 12 Opening Bowl Game of the Year is going out tonight.
New Mexico Bowl Winner on North Texas and Utah State, and the game kicks-off at 2:00 pm eastern time.
Denver had put together a 3 game win and cover streak that had them thinking Wild Card when they boarded the plane for Santa Clara last Sunday, however after a 389 to 253 total yardage difference, and a not-as-close as the final score would indicate 20-14 loss, the Broncos and their injuries look to be a long-shot at best to sneak into the postseason.
The same can be said for Cleveland, as the Browns 26-20 home win over the Carolina Panthers has kept their their pulse still beating at 5-7-1 straight up for the year.
Case Keenum misses wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, and the Broncos defense is sorely missing cornerback Chris Harris. Not sure they are able to stretch the margin against this dangerous Cleveland team that has won 3 of their last 4 straight up, and continues to get winning play from rookie Baker Mayfield. Mayfield has thrown for 15 touchdowns against just 5 interceptions over his last 7 games, and while the Browns defense is not where it needs to be, it should fare just fine against this Denver attack that has not been able to get consistent scoring production. Keenum also been picked off an alarming 10 times this season!
These teams had many a memorable meeting back in the 1980's, and while this one does have playoff implications, realistically both of these teams are playing for next season. Still, someone has to win this Saturday night meeting, and with Denver just 1-5-2 against the spread their last 8 when laying points at Sports Authority Field, the field goal impost is just enough to sway in backing the underdog Brownies in this spot.
Outright upset would not be much of a surprise to me, that is for sure.
Play on Cleveland.

My free pick for Saturday is on the Denver Broncos in late NFL action against the Cleveland Browns. And like with all football plays in this point-spread range, I want you active in buying the half point. Anytime there is a favorite laying points between -3 and -4.5, you are to buy the half point down.
In what is essentially an elimination game for both teams, and I'll bank on the suddenly efficient Case Keenum to lead the offense, and volatilve Von Miller to make things hard on the Browns and Baker Mayfield.
Keenum is on a five-game run without throwing an interception after tossing 11 in his first eight games in Denver. He leads an offense that ranks 16th in the league, mainly because he hasn't topped 200 yards passing in three weeks and has played cautious during that five-game span. This week he faces a Cleveland defense that ranks 24th overall and 26th against the pass. Keenum has the arm to turn a drive vertical, especially at home, where he is averaging 270 yards in this last three starts.
The offense will balance out with rookie running back Phillip Lindsay coming out of the backfield. He has six touchdown runs in his last four games. He'll be able to move the chains inside the 40s and will be beneficial on third-and-short, while his knack for sniffing out the end zone inside the 10 will push Denver's score high.
Miller, meanwhile, is on career-best eight-game sack streak. He leads a defense that has stepped of lately, allowing an average of 15.7 points over the team's last three games. That includes an impressive 24-17 home win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, and going back four games, this same Broncos team went into Los Angeles and beat the Chargers, 23-22.
Cleveland has been better than most expected, but it's not going into Denver and challenging the surging Broncos, who will be looking to avenge last week's letdown in Frisco.
Lay the chalk.

Yep, a little December bump in the road the past few days, but nothing a Major-Wager Winner won't cure as we get the house back in order today.
It's still been 35 of 58 overall winning days, and at $10 bet per unit, you are up $5,730 in a little less than 2 month's time.
Time to stomp on this Saturday card.

I know I am!
Let's stick with the trends that point towards an Under in this Browns-Broncos Saturday night showdown at Sports Authority Field.
Cleveland has played back-to-back Unders, and Unders in 3 of their last 4. The Under has also banked in 5 of the Browns last 9 games, and while their defense has given up some big scores this year, they have done a much better job on that side of the football as they are allowing just over 21 points per game in their last 4, while holding their opponents to 20 points or less in 3 of those 4 games.
Denver comes into this game with 6 Unders in a row played, and 10 Unders posted in their last 12 games this season! The Broncos offense suffered a big hit with the loss of wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders the other week, and his absence contributed to their paltry 14 points output in their loss at San Francisco.
Both Baker Mayfield and Case Keenum have been known to turn it over via the interception, but what if those picks happen to occur when they press the action in trying to get their team in the end-zone? Well, then it becomes that much harder to generate the points needed to get this game into the Over column.
I think this game will not get out of the 30's, and with a total in the mid-40's, safe to say I like the Under on Saturday night.
Cleveland-Denver Under the total.
