The last two TNF games have gone down to the wire, and this week's game is arguably the prime-time matchup of the regular season as 10-2 Oakland visits 9-3 Kansas City. The winner, in my opinion, will be the AFC West champion and could be the top seed in the AFC playoffs. http://www.docsports.com/2016/free-nfl-picks-oakland-raiders-kansas-city-chiefs-odds-expert-predictions-457.html Free College Football Picks: Army vs. Navy Odds and Expert Betting Predictions http://www.docsports.com/2016/free-college-football-picks-army-navy-odds-expert-betting-predictions-916.html It's of a bit of a nostalgic time from where I sit - this is the 43rd and final college football game preview of the regular season. I love bowls as much as the next guy - and more than most - but nothing is better than the volume and chaos of the regular season in college football. Instead of wallowing in sadness, though, or focusing on what has been a pretty solid year (24-18 ATS to date), let's attack this game with intensity and enthusiasm. http://www.docsports.com/2016/free-college-football-picks-army-navy-odds-expert-betting-predictions-916.html College Football Bowl Game Betting and Handicapping: Toughest Matchups for Handicappers http://www.docsports.com/2016/college-football-bowl-game-betting-handicapping-toughest-matchups-handicappers-973.html We'll spend a lot of time looking at several of the bowl games in detail as they draw nearer. At first glance, though, there are five that stand out above the rest in terms of the handicapping challenges they present. In short, these five games, for one reason or another, make my head hurt. We'll look at one in detail, and take a quick hitting look at the other four here: http://www.docsports.com/2016/college-football-bowl-game-betting-handicapping-toughest-matchups-handicappers-973.html Free NBA Picks: Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2016, Opening Line Report and Handicapping http://www.docsports.com/2016/free-nba-picks-wednesday-december-7-opening-line-report-handicapping-747.html With all due respect to the San Antonio Spurs, I believe just one team is talented enough to win the Western Conference this season over Golden State and that's the Los Angeles Clippers (not that I'm predicting that). Their Big 3 of Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan is as almost as good as Golden State's Big 3. And this year, the Clippers might actually have a better bench after the Warriors had to dump some guys this offseason after adding Kevin Durant's big salary. Believe it or not, the Clippers' five-man reserve unit of Austin Rivers, Jamal Crawford, Marreese Speights (a former Warrior), Raymond Felton and Wesley Johnson, statistically, is the second-best defensive group in the NBA. http://www.docsports.com/2016/free-nba-picks-wednesday-december-7-opening-line-report-handicapping-747.html Weekly Q&A with Doc's Sports Expert Handicapper Raphael Esparza http://www.docsports.com/2016/weekly-q-a-expert-sports-handicapper-raphael-esparza-docs-sports-696.html Alabama is a heavy favorite to win another national title this season as the top seed in this year's College Football Playoff. This week we will check in with Doc's Sports expert handicapper Raphael Esparza to see if he thinks there is any value in the betting odds for the other three teams on the CFP Championship futures list. http://www.docsports.com/2016/weekly-q-a-expert-sports-handicapper-raphael-esparza-docs-sports-696.html NFL Office Pool Picks Week 14 http://www.docsports.com/2016/nfl-office-pool-picks-week-14-324.html This is when things really get interesting. All teams have played 12 games. It's a downhill sprint to the playoffs. Lots of games have no meaning at all, of course, but there are several games each week in which the stakes couldn't be any higher. Playoffs dreams are intensifying - and for many teams they will be crushed in the coming weeks. The games just mean more, and that makes picking straight up winners all the more fun. Here are my Office Pool picks for all 16 games on the glorious schedule this week: http://www.docsports.com/2016/nfl-office-pool-picks-week-14-324.html NFL Survivor Pools Strategy Advice and Predictions: Week 14 http://www.docsports.com/2016/nfl-survivor-pools-strategy-advice-predictions-week-14-975.html We've settled into a comfortable pattern the last few weeks in terms of Survivor Pools. There have been enough games out there that are straightforward that picks are out there to be found, and the games we have picked have mostly turned out as expected. Surprises and chaos are the enemies of Survivor Pool players, and for the most part both have been absent at the top end of games over the last few weeks. http://www.docsports.com/2016/nfl-survivor-pools-strategy-advice-predictions-week-14-975.html Oakland Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs Free NFL Picks & Week 14 Odds http://www.docsports.com/free-picks/nfl/2016/Oakland-Raiders-at-Kansas-City-Chiefs-Free-NFL-Picks-Week-14-Odds-592.html The Oakland Raiders will match up with the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday, December 8, 2016.
