By Marc Lawrence, PlaybookSports.com — The Awesome Angle from this week’s PLAYBOOK Football Newsletter: Seattle head coach Pete Carroll dipped into his magic bag of tricks and tamed the Broncos Monday night. With it, he’ll take a 7-1 ATS dog log record into San Francisco today when taking 6 or more points.
Meanwhile, Frisco enters with a 0-9-1 ATS mark in its last ten games as division home chalk, as well as a 1-10 ATS ledger as a favorite of 7-plus points.
The bottom line is there are simply too many good numbers to lay points into a savvy coach in this early Christmas gift, especially with a neophyte quarterback still learning on the job.
From Victor King’s NFL ‘Totals’ Tipsheet this week: The New York Giants are 0-12 UNDER in their last 12 home games.
Their opponent, Carolina, is 0-9 UNDER in its last nine games before facing the New Orleans.
