Maybe next year I’ll actually include my picks for these games, so people can laugh in these trying times.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Look, most of these are silly. As you can see below, you can find one trend that contradicts another for every matchup. Then again, the federal ban on sports gambling itself is silly, so here we are. Enjoy the games, and best of luck to everyone.

All times EST. All lines taken Wednesday from VegasInsider.com, and thanks to PredictionMachine.com and WalterFootball.com for many of these trends.
