Texans at Titans
Line: Titans -3.5, Pick: Texans
The Texans are nothing flashing, but they win games. Although the Titans have home field advantage, Mariota’s absence is going to hurt them. The Titans are also coming off a game where they were stomped on by the division-worst Jaguars. The Texans are going to use this as a warm up for the playoffs.
Saints at Falcons
Line: Falcons -7, Pick: Falcons
The Falcons need a win to lock up the two seed in the NFC and they are going to get it. They have won their last three, and their offense is among the most dynamic in the league. They beat the Saints by 13 last time, in New Orleans, and home field advantage this time around will result in a comfortable victory.
Seahawks at 49ers
Line: Seahawks -9.5, Pick: Seahawks
The only scenario where the Seahawks clinch a first-round bye in the playoffs includes a win against the 49ers. San Francisco has proven they are among the league’s worst. Seattle is not going to take any chances, and thus will win by a reasonable margin, just as they did against San Francisco in their first matchup.
