For sports bettors who prefer meat and potatoes wagering, December is an ideal month. There are multiple division races, a strong college football slate and a whole lot of NFL action to get excited about.
Monthly best bets
The SportsLine Projection Model has locked in three confident MLB best bets that pay out over 7-1. See them at SportsLine.
The sarcastic wit of hosts Cousin Sal and the “Degenerate Trifecta” is the highlight of this weekly podcast. They discuss their sports betting misadventures with a self-deprecating humor honed over years of friendship and torn up betting slips.
The Titans are 3-0 SU and ATS in their last two games and have won four of their past five road games. They are a much better team than the Colts and should have a significant advantage in this game.
The Titans have quietly been getting better defensively and this is a great opportunity for them to build some momentum. They also have the best backfield in the league with Saquon Barkley, Kenneth Walker III and DK Metcalf.

Tua Tagovailoa ripped through a mediocre Bears defense last week and should do the same against a unit that traded team-leading tackler Roquan Smith at the deadline.
