OT betting picks for a Vegas trip

I’m not a big sports bettor, but I’m guessing a few of you are sharpies. I don’t need help figuring out the Lions will lose tomorrow, but do any of you have interesting picks to recommend? I already placed a bet on Beileins defense today (cough) over 142.5. Thanks-

The Lions have actually played pretty well this year on the road but I try to not bet on my own teams.  The game that jumps out at me is Tampa Bay -1 over Green Bay at Lambeau.  I just can't see Tampa winning that game at Lambeau in December.

I would place a small play on TCU and Georgia moneylines. Or take the points for each. It’s hard to beat a team twice in a year of similar quality. I like the revenge factor for big games.

I've got to be honest, the most intriguing bet for me today is Kansas vs. Syracuse bball game. College basketball is where I do the most of my sports betting, but I usually hold off until the meat of conference play where the picks (and thus, parlays) are easier to make.

However, with the over/under being set at 142, I'm licking my lips at this one. Syracuse is seemingly intimidating on D, but I don't think they drag down the insane 94ppg Jayhawks all the way down into the 60s. I really, really like the over bet here.

Thank goodness I got distracted shortly after this by giving my dog a bath. I would've lost money, but fortunately forgot to put down my bet.

While KU only scored slightly less than I was expecting at 76 (I was thinking high 70s/low 80s), I definitely didn't foresee the Orangemen getting held to 60pts.

I like the over for the Georgia Auburn game.  Georgia couldn't run vs. Auburn the first time around so they're likely to pass a lot more (clock stoppages and pick 6 opportunities).

Auburn lost Kerryon Johnson so they're likely to pass a lot also.  They may be down to their 4th string back.  Could be a recipe for botched pass protection and a fumble.  Turnovers usually lead to points.  

Last i checked the O/U is 47 1/2.  Take the over.
