Monday Night Football, Week 14. Tonight we have a rare late season Monday Night Football doubleheader. In simultaneous games, the Miami Dolphins host the Tennessee Titans and the New York Giants host the Green Bay Packers at 8:15 pm EST. The Dolphins are 13.5 point home favorites against the Titans and the Packers are 5.5 point road favorites against the Giants according to DraftKings Sportsbook.

The 4-8 Tennessee Titans come into this game with their playoff hopes gone. They have lost four of their last five games, their only win coming against the lowly Carolina Panthers. In the twilight of Derrick Henry’s illustrious career the Titans’ offense has lost its way. They have scored 17 points or less in eight of twelve games this season. That’s no way to win football games. Now the Titans face the #1 offense in football, the Miami Dolphins. This could get ugly.

The 9-3 Miami Dolphins come into this game with the #1 ranked offense and the #7 ranked defense. They have won four of their last five games, and they have not lost to a losing team all season. At home against the offensively challenged Titans, it would be a shocker if the Dolphins don’t win tonight.

The 6-6 Green Bay Packers come into this game on a three game winning streak, including quality wins over the Detroit Lions and the Kansas City Chiefs in back-to-back games. Quarterback Jordan Love has been on a tear, averaging more than 280 passing yards and 2.5 passing touchdowns over the last four games.

The 4-8 New York Giants come into this game with the worst offense in the NFL (hard to believe for Jets and Patriots fans, I know). The Giants have scored 17 points or less in ten of twelve games this season. Now they go up against a red hot Packers team.

I’m taking the Dolphins at home and the Packers on the road to win their respective games tonight. I have submitted my picks using the widget from our partners at Tallysight. You can follow all my picks throughout the season, as I prove for another season how I’m not made to be a gambler. Seriously, I cannot stress enough how bad an idea it would be to bet real money based on my picks. Don’t do it. Don’t even consider it. Make your own picks, and good luck. And if you do bet, consider using our friends at DraftKings Sportsbook.
