Minty Bets and Jared Quay Campbell give their instant blind reactions to NFL lines for Week 18.
MINTY BETS: We just wrapped up week 17 of the NFL. And we haven't even looked at lines for week 18 yet. So here are our blind reactions in 3, 2, 1. Cowboys at Eagles, Cowboys minus three.
JARED QUAY CAMPBELL: Oh, I mean everything this line says, go Cowboys. Because Cowboys have been kind of on fire outside of last week's loss. But I think these teams know each other too well. And I would go with dogs anyway. If it was Eagles minus three, I would go with Cowboys. If it's Cowboys minus three, I'm going with Eagles. Because this will be a close game. And I'd just rather have points as a cushion.
MINTY BETS: Yeah, I think this one will be a close game too. And it seems like the Cowboys like, although they've been good, they're kind of getting unhealthy at the wrong time. So I would lean Eagles plus the points here.
- Woo! Eagles, baby!
JARED QUAY CAMPBELL: San Francisco 49ers at Los Angeles Rams, Rams minus 5 and 1/2.
MINTY BETS: I think 5 and 1/2 points is too much to trust the Rams by. I mean, the Niners have looked good. Granted, it is Trey Lance starting. But man, the Rams were just so hyped up in the beginning of the season. I don't know if I trust them to cover 5 and 1/2.
JARED QUAY CAMPBELL: Spot on. I was just at the game watching the Rams yesterday. And they are a little bit overrated. I would say that. They have a lot of star power, but a lot of holes.
Obviously, a Baltimore team that didn't score a touchdown lost by two of them. Their offense didn't score a touchdown. And with that being the case, I just feel like this Niners team runs the ball a lot better and plays defense pretty good that you shouldn't be favored by five. You might win by three. But you got to win by a full touchdown. And I don't see that happening.
- Look it up. It's science.
MINTY BETS: Chargers at Raiders, Chargers minus three.
JARED QUAY CAMPBELL: This is playoff football right now. Week 18, this is your only wild card game because the winner of this game will be in the playoffs. And I just can't trust either team. Obviously, the Raiders will be good when they're not supposed to be and be bad when you expect them to be good.
And the Chargers know how to charge you. That's a term. You know what I mean. With that being the case, I got to go dogs here. I'm going to go Raiders to go ahead and handle business and get to the playoffs and lose first round. Wild cards.
MINTY BETS: I want to agree with you, Jared. I want to take my home team here. But I think the Chargers come out with a win here. I don't know if they quite cover. I think it'll be really close. So, yeah, I guess Raiders cover. But Chargers win. I think the Raiders just blow it. I think there's just so much pressure on the Raiders here to perform. And I think they disappoint.
JARED QUAY CAMPBELL: Wow. You might not be able to walk around Vegas with that kind of attitude, Minty.
- Let's play some football!
