A unit is recommended for 1/7 free picks below. Of the games I list as strong leans, play these if you already had a lean to these plays yourself (or you just want action on). All the games listed below as a pick are all tracked via Action Network. Slight leans are just if I had to pick one side or the other.
Minnesota is coming off of a win against the Saints on the road last weekend in the Wild Card game. There certainly is some momentum coming into this game from the road team, but the 49ers, who are the surprise of the NFC will have something to say about this.
I expect a steady dose of Dalvin Cook and I also expect the 49ers to rely on their run game also. This will keep the clock ticking and help the under. I was impressed with the Vikings defense against the Saints in the dome, and I expect this to continue. Vikings had the second-best red zone defense in the NFL in the regular season and did a good job last week against the Saints in this category. For this to go under, and for them to cover, they are going to need to get a stop or two in the red zone. I believe the 49ers will win this game, but I have the Vikings covering with a final score of 23-20.
Pick- Under 44.5
Strong Lean- Vikings +7
Gonzaga absolutely went off offensively on Thursday against San Diego, scoring 94 on the road, even with the starters sitting for part of the second half. Today, the Zags face off against LMU, a team that is similar defensively to San Diego, but a little bit better offensively.
Gonzaga came into the game on Thursday struggling a bit but got back on track against the Torros. We have already seen this total move up a point. Gonzaga will score around 85, and I don’t see any sign of their offense slowing down. The Lions should be able to score 65-70 and I have a final score of 85-65 with the Bulldogs winning.
Pick- Over 142.5
Strong Lean- Gonzaga -18.5
