Bet on the favored Raiders

Home group in CAPS

RAIDERS (-2.5) over Washington

This looms as a vicious type matchup, which markedly favors the scorching Vegas facet. It may be argued that the Washington cross protection is as doubtful as another such unit this season. Derek Carr has been racking up wins this season at any time when he manages 300-plus passing yards on the day.

Giants (+4) over DOLPHINS

With QB Daniel Jones sidelined with a bum neck, Mike Glennon steps in for spot-relief obligation. Big Blue have outperformed the market on this particular inter-conference matchup, which maybe isn’t too shocking, given their defense-first orientation.

Eagles (-6.5) over Jets

Philadelphia’s birds carry a spotless historic document versus Gang Green, having grounded these Jets 11 instances in all, with nary a loss to blemish their excellent matchup document. QB Zach Wilson is trying to make his second begin again off knee points, whereas Philly’s Jalen Hurts is questionable as he continues to nurse a sprained ankle.

Falcons (+10.5) over BUCCANEERS

Not trying to get too “out there” with this modest canine as Bucs glide alongside atop NFC South, however market makers are asking Bucs and Brady followers to put full worth, plus. With Tampa Bay three video games up in the NFC South, Bucs wideout Antonio Brown is damage and suspended, backup Jaelon Darden is concussed, CB Jamel Dean and LB Devin White are iffy, Rob Gronkowski and Ndamukong Suh rested throughout apply this week, and Jason Pierre-Paul is recent off a shoulder drawback, leaning towards canine, with better of Sunday’s worth.

LIONS (+7) over Vikings

No query which is the superior group — as Detroit nonetheless must show it may possibly work its manner into the win column this season. The worth on Minnesota is superficially cheap, however the Vikings have largely been enjoying to the degree of their competitors most of this season.

Colts (-8.5) over TEXANS

This looms an inexpensive free sq. for Indianapolis, given they’ve already misplaced six video games this season regardless of their appreciable skills, and can be properly suggested to try to place this away early, versus a facet trying to get better from flu points.


Cardinals (-7) over BEARS

We all know which the higher group is, however the climate could also be the transcendent issue right here. Though temps are anticipated to achieve the mid-40s, it’s anticipated to rain meaningfully all through, with December winds in the 15-25 mph vary … a state of affairs price watching intently, concerning each the facet and the whole. With the Cards recent off their bye, wounded warriors (QB Kyler Murray and WR DeAndre Hopkins) ought to be prepared as they’ll ever be, and we’d be silly to fault the high quality of the guests’ roster.

Chargers (+2.5) over BENGALS

No torrential downpours possible right here, however the area ought to be slick most of the day, with temps approaching 60 levels. Cincinnati opened a slim favourite after bopping the Steelers, 41-10 — although it’d take the Bengals some time to return to earth after that show towards their Evil Empire. The Bolts are legit contenders in the stiff AFC West.

RAMS (-13) over Jaguars

Not on the lookout for a four-TD win — however proficient hosts don’t want that as a lot as a transparent early lead en path to a cushty, protected closing margin, with everybody rising wholesome.


SEAHAWKS (+3.5) over 49ers

The NFC West standings have flipped, and that is not a battle of titans — however regardless of the reality {that a} floor view would recommend the Niners boast the superior roster, the ’Hawks are on a 13-2 victory stretch towards this divisional rival — although neither looms as a hardcore postseason risk. Should be aggressive.

STEELERS (+4.5) over Ravens

While apparently “over the top” by way of deep, critical postseason consideration, the Steelers stay in the battle for the AFC North, with the Ravens presently answerable for divisional honors at this level. We stay unwilling to fade the Steelers when despatched out as dwelling puppies — whereas turnover-prone Lamar Jackson continues to direct the Ravens’ offense.

CHIEFS (-9.5) over Broncos

Make no mistake, the Broncos journey properly and look to be aggressive towards higher foes … however counter that with the Chiefs’ sustained, glowing long-term mark off a bye week when run by coach Andy Reid.


Patriots (+3) over BILLS

Coach Bill Belichick’s Pats opened 2-4 by way of mid-October, however they haven’t misplaced since, assuming command of the AFC East behind rookie signal-caller Mac Jones. The Bills have largely devolved right into a turnover manufacturing facility (11 of their previous 4 outings), to QB Josh Allen’s chagrin. Given the evening setting and the projected temps, snow is an actual risk.

Last week: 6-6
Season: 77-87-2
