Baltimore Ravens @ Buffalo Bills, New Era Field, 1:00 PM (Bills +6.5, O/U: 44.5)
The Bills have a pretty good defense and that stadium has forced the Patriots into close games. Jackson is too dynamic, however. Take the Ravens to cover in the under, Ravens 27-20.
Carolina Panthers @ Atlanta Falcons, Mercedes-Benz Superdome, 1:00 PM (Falcons -3.5, O/U: 47.5)
The Panthers dealt their team a coaching change before the end of the season and before they were officially eliminated from the playoffs, hopefully it changes the attitude of the team as well. You don’t know which Falcons team you’ll get but they did spank the Panthers in their house a few weeks ago. Take the Panthers to cover in the win, in the over, Panthers 27-24.
Cincinnati Bengals @ Cleveland Browns, FirstEnergy Stadium, 1:00 PM (Browns -6.5, O/U: 42.5)
The Bengals are struggling so much that they threw Dalton back in under center. The move seemed to have worked as they won their first game of the season handedly against the Jets. The Browns couldn’t stop the Duck last week and for a defense that is supposed to be a top 10 defense on paper, they got embarrassed. Take the Bengals to cover in the loss, in the under, Browns 20-14.
Denver Broncos @ Houston Texans, NRG Stadium, 1:00 PM (Texans -9.5, O/U: 43.5)
The Broncos have been in almost all of their losses this year and without solid quarterback play. Their defense has been the workhorse given that the offense sputters most of their drives. Watson has been outstanding this year even while dealing with a cleat to the eye earlier this year. Carlos Hyde is quietly having a career year while sharing the workload with Duke. Hyde has never cracked the 1,000 yard mark and is poised to do so in 2019. Take the Texans to cover in the over, Texans 31-20.
Detroit Lions @ Minnesota Vikings, U.S. Bank Stadium, 1:00 PM (Vikings -11.5, O/U: 44.5)
Take the Vikings to cover in the over, Vikings 31-17.
Indianapolis Colts @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Raymond James Stadium, 1:00 PM (Buccs -3.5, O/U: 47.5)
Take the Buccs to cover in the over, Buccs 28-24.
Miami Dolphins @ New York Jets, MetLife Stadium, 1:00 PM (Jets -5.5, O/U: 46.5)
Take the Dolphins to cover in the win, in the under, Dolphins 24-20.
San Francisco 49ers @ New Orleans Saints, Mercedes-Benz Superdome, 1:00 PM (Saints -1.5, O/U: 45.5)
Take the 49ers to cover in the win, in the under, 49ers 23-20.
Washington Redskins @ Green Bay Packers, Lambeau Field, 1:00 PM (Packers -13.5, O/U: 42.5)
Take the Packers to cover in the over, Packers 31-17.
Los Angeles Chargers @ Jacksonville Jaguars, TIAA Bank Field, 4:05 PM (Jaguars +3.5, O/U: 42.5)
Take the Jaguars to cover in the win, in the under, Jaguars 21-17.
Kansas City Chiefs @ New England Patriots, Gillette Stadium, 4:25 PM (Patriots -3.5, O/U: 49.5)
Take the Chiefs to cover in the win, in the over, Chiefs 27-24.
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Arizona Cardinals, University of Phoenix Stadium, 4:25 PM (Cardinals +2.5, O/U: 43.5)
Take the Steelers to cover in the over, Steelers 27-24.
Tennessee Titans @ Oakland Raiders, Oakland Coliseum, 4:25 PM (Raiders +3.5, O/U: 47.5)
Take the Raiders to cover in the over, Raiders 27-24.
Seattle Seahawks @ Los Angeles Rams, Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, 8:20 PM, NBC (Rams -1.5, O/U: 47.5)
Take the Seahawks to cover in the over, Seahawks 31-28.
