NFL Week 16 Betting Guide: Spread, moneyline, over/under picks

first_imgThere’s just one double-digit spread (Ravens vs. Browns) featured on the Week 16 NFL slate, and there are a lot of exciting spots for bettors to attack this week. Six different spreads are between one and three points and seven more are between six and eight points. Playoff implications are at stake across the league, and the second-to-last week of the regular season is sure to be action-packed! Let’s check out some edges to capitalize on, be it on the moneyline, against the spread, or on the over/under total. BetQL can help you identify edges on every slate! Our subscribers can view BetQL’s NFL best bets and make the most informed, data-driven wagers possible. WEEK 16 FANTASY  RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerAll data presented is as of Wednesday morning. You can track all NFL line movement on BetQL’s Line Movement Dashboard. Figures below calculated by wagering one unit on each touted bet with -110 spread odds.NFL Week 16 Betting Picks: Spread pick of the weekBills (+6.5) at Patriots The Bills have gone 6-0-1 ATS on the road this season, and, while the Patriots have gone 5-1 at home, they’ve gone just 3-3 ATS. Earlier this year, New England took down the Bills 16-10 in Buffalo. Since then, both teams have been trending in different directions. Although the Patriots defense has relatively maintained its elite status (with the exception of two ugly losses against mobile quarterbacks Lamar Jackson and Deshaun Watson), New England’s offense has not resembled the dominant units that have graced Foxborough throughout Tom Brady’s tenure.Whether Brady’s regression is real or not, it’s clear that New England’s defense has carried the Pats to an 11-3 record. Meanwhile, the Bills have proved their doubters wrong all season and have played their best football away from Buffalo. Since this game has a slate-low 37.5 point total, it’s easy to assume that points will be hard to come by for both teams. Expect this one to come down to the wire, especially since the Bills are in the hunt for their first AFC East title since 1995. A Buffalo win in this game wouldn’t guarantee that, but it’s a necessary step toward dethroning the Patriots, who have won the division every year of the last decade.NFL Week 16 Betting Picks: Moneyline pick of the weekSaints (-145) at Titans The Saints have gone 5-1 on the road this season and are coming off of a dominant 34-7 victory over the Colts on Monday Night Football. Meanwhile, the Titans have gone 4-3 at home and are coming off of a 24-21 loss to the Texans. There are some trends working in New Orleans’ favor in this matchup. In their past 57 games against good offensive teams (who average 24-plus points per game), the Saints have gone 43-14. In their past 31 games against excellent passing teams (that average 7.5 or more yards per attempt), New Orleans has gone 22-9. Further, in their last 102 games against poor passing defenses (that allow a completion percentage of 61% or worse), the Saints have gone 75-27. Per BetQL’s Public Betting Dashboard as of Wednesday afternoon, 70 percent of the total bets and 93 percent of the total money has been wagered on the Saints’ moneyline. MORE WEEK 16 FANTASY: Sleepers | Busts | Start ’em, sit ’em NFL Week 16 Betting Picks: Over/under pick of the weekTexans at Buccaneers OVER 49.5Death, taxes and Buccaneers games hitting the OVER — those are the only certainties in life. While that’s a bit hyperbolic, 11 of the past 12 Bucs games have gone OVER the total, and five of their six home games have gone OVER. Jameis Winston has thrown for 914 yards with eight touchdowns and four interceptions over the past two games, which has led to 73 and 55 point totals. Right now, he’s clearly being given the freedom to throw the ball all over the field and leads the NFL in passing yards as a result. But, due to his uncanny ability to turn the ball over, offenses have capitalized from beneficial field positions all year long against Tampa Bay, who have allowed 276.8 passing yards per game (30th) as they tend to sell out against the run. That could play right into Deshaun Watson’s favor this week, as DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller should be able to run wild. Hammer the OVER!Via BetQL’s Sharp Picks Dashboard, 62 percent of public bets have supported the over, but pro bettors haven’t quite agreed. Find out what percentage of total money has been wagered on the over!last_img read more

India to block any self-driving vehicles that enter the country

first_imgIndia doesn’t want anything to do with self-driving vehicles. The highway and transport minister, Nitin Gadkari, told reporters that he wouldn’t let driverless cars take away jobs.“We won’t allow driverless cars in India. I am very clear on this. We won’t allow any technology that takes away jobs. In a country where you have unemployment, you can’t have a technology that ends up taking people’s jobs,” said Gadkari.See Also: Honeywell bets big on India’s smart city growthThe country already needs thousands more professional drivers on its roads, and the government is planning to open facilities to train thousands of new drivers.The confirmation will change little in the country, which Google and Uber have already wrote off as a prospective place for self-driving cars, due to its poor roads and chaotic traffic in cities. Some private tests have been carried out by developers, but there have been no public road tests.The Indian government, while encouraging more investment and development from outsiders, has been against interference with its transport industry. The Modi government announced a $59 billion infrastructure plan for airports, railways, and roads, the majority of which will be built and delivered by the government.Ola and Uber, the two major ride-sharing services in the country, are in a precarious spot, with the government debating whether to bring them under the Motor Vehicles Act. After the 2014 rape case, involving an Uber driver, calls were made to ban the taxi apps, but the government has reportedly decided to regulate the services.India has far the most aggressive stance against self-driving vehicles out of all the major economies, with the U.S., China, the U.K., Germany, France, and Australia all accepting the development of autonomous vehicles and some actively funding startups and established players.Despite the move away from self-driving cars, India has committed to making its entire new fleet of cars electric-powered.

Urban Meyer Says Braxton Miller Position Change Story “Jumped The Gun”: “I Haven’t Made Those Decisions Yet”

first_imgBraxton Miller wears his helmet during warm-ups at Rutgers.PISCATAWAY, NJ – OCTOBER 24: Braxton Miller #1 of the Ohio State Buckeyes during warmups before a game against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights at High Point Solutions Stadium on October 24, 2015 in Piscataway, New Jersey. (Photo by Rich Schultz /Getty Images) braxton miller urban meyer 2012 ohio state spring gameTwitter/@StephDEpifanioSports Illustrated dropped a late news bomb on the college football world earlier, with the news that Braxton Miller will be moving to wide recevier/h-back for the coming season. The move has been met with praise from Buckeye fans, and members of the team. One key member of the program isn’t ready to fully commit to the move, however: head coach Urban Meyer. The three-time national champion told The Columbus Dispatch that reports of the official position change are a bit premature.“I haven’t made those decisions yet,” Meyer told The Dispatch. “It’s a little bit jumping the gun here. Braxton came to see me. He’s been talking to me about it (the switch). We’ve been working at it, but I’m not ready to say exactly how we’re going to use him yet.”Considering Pete Thamel’s SI report was based on a conversation with Miller, we have to imagine the move is, in fact, happening. Meyer is probably not thrilled that it was announced in July, giving Virginia Tech and others more than a month to prep for a J.T. Barrett or Cardale Jones-led offense, as well as figure out how to defend Miller as a skill guy. Otherwise, this would be a pretty crazy redirection by members of the Buckeye program.[Columbus Dispatch]last_img read more
