Cowboys at Vikings
Line: Cowboys -3.5, Pick: Cowboys-The Cowboys have continued to impress, so much so that it is officially time to hop on the bandwagon. The Vikings have not looked great recently—dropping five of their last six. The Vikings will not have as easy of a time stopping the Cowboys’ dual threat offense compared to usual. While the game still could be relatively close, the Cowboys will pull it out by four or more points.
Giants at Steelers
Line: Steelers -6, Pick: Giants-The Giants have won their last six going into Heinz field. Sure the Steelers are playing all around solid and they have a home field advantage that is one of the best in the league; nevertheless, when a team is clicking on all cylinders, let alone on a six-game win streak, and is an underdog by two field goals, they are a bet. Giants will keep this game close, and that is if they even lose.
Buccaneers at Chargers
Line: Chargers -4, Pick: Buccaneers-Riding with another hot team in the Bucs who are on a three-game win streak and fresh off a momentum boosting win against one of the league’s most talented teams—Seattle. While the Chargers are underrated and do not get enough recognition for the quality of their team, the Bucs are in the same boat. These teams have both proved they can play. This will be a close one.
Eagles at Bengals
Line: Eagles -2.5, Pick: Eagles-The Bengals have just not been what they were expected to be this year. Letting their last three slide, the Bengals have essentially fell out of playoff contention. Not only that, but A.J. Green is not going to be playing. On the other hand, the Eagles have proved that they have talent and can compete with anyone.
Rams at Patriots
Over/Under: 45, Pick: Under-The Rams defense is solid and underrated. While the Patriots offense is not too shabby, especially with some guy named Tom Brady playing, the Rams defense will not give up close to the amount of points they gave up last week. The Rams will get back to their usual defensive self, and this game will be low scoring.
