Rams at Seahawks
Line: Seahawks -16, Pick: Rams
Yes the Rams have looked awful and fired their head coach on a short week, but this spread is too large to pass up. They are playing a Seattle team they beat earlier this year, who, additionally, is coming off a blowout loss. The Rams might not win, but they are not going to lose by more than 16 points.
Dolphins at Jets
Line: Dolphins -2.5, Pick: Dolphins
The Dolphins have won seven of their last eight and are trying to slip into the playoffs. Although they have not looked as dominate lately, every win on their hot streak has been by more than two and a half points. Additionally, the Jets are starting Bryce Petty who has not done anything spectacular, and winning will simply hurt their draft pick next year.
Steelers at Bengals
Line: Steelers -3, Pick: Steelers
The Steelers are on a quest to get into the playoffs. They have won their last four, each by a minimum of a touchdown. While the Bengals have one their last two, one was against the worst team in the league (the Browns obviously) and the other was against the Eagles who have gone ice cold the second half of the season.
Patriots at Broncos
Line: Patriots -3, Pick: Patriots
Apart from their loss to Seattle, the Patriots have won by more than three points every game since Brady has been back. On the other hand, the Broncos have let two of their last three slide. The Patriots have this one and it is going to be a win by more than three points, even with it being played in Denver.
Buccaneers at Cowboys
Over/Under: 46, Pick: Under
Both defenses have been playing well. The Buccaneers have held two of their last three opponents to under 11 points and the Cowboys defense has not allowed either of their last two opponents to top 15. Also, the explosive Cowboys offense has cooled off significantly the last two weeks.
