Kansas City Chiefs vs Denver Broncos Expert Pick

This is going to be a low scoring game especially with the injury to QB Drew Lock. With the Chiefs still looking for a chance at the No.1 seed, expect Kansas City to run the table here. Denver won’t allow too many big plays as the last time these two teams meet they only allowed one offensive touchdown. Take the points here.

Expert Pick: Chiefs -14.5

Dallas Cowboys vs Philadelphia Eagles Expert Pick

The Philadelphia Eagles have every right to rest some key players here if this game gets out of hand early. They will no matter what be playing a road game where as Dallas can still get a higher seed if they win. The Favorite is 9-3 ATS in their last 12 meetings and the Cowboys are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 meetings.

Expert Pick: Cowboys -5.5

Cincinnati Bengals vs Cleveland Browns Expert Pick

Could the Bengals without Joe Burrow and company be better than the Browns? Baker Mayfield will also not be playing on the field as well. However, Case Keenum the backup veteran is a much better call here instead of Bengals Brandon Allen. The Bengals will have nothing to play for with the Chiefs winning their game most likely. Take the Browns.

Expert Pick: Browns -5

Green Bay Packers vs Detroit Lions Expert Pick

The Green Bay Packers own the #1 seed in the NFC and head coach Matt LaFleur says the starters will play. Now how much will they play is the biggest question. Rodgers and company will most likely play a quarter or two and still get enough points to take down the Lions. Detroit is already looking towards next year and might be without Jred Goff again.

Expert Pick: Packers -3

Chicago Bears vs Minnesota Vikings Expert Pick

What a fitting end for the Chicago Bears as Justin Fields has landed himself on the COVID-19/reserve list and now take on the Vikings with Kirk Cousins back looking for revenge. The Bears do not close in January and it shows as they are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games in January.

Expert Pick: Vikings -3.5/ML

Washington Football Team vs New York Giants Expert Pick

This one might get ugly. The New York Giants offense has been downright terrible this season as they have scored 13 points just once in the last seven games and their list of backup QB’s to play this season have not hit 100 passing yards in the last 3 goes. Take the Football team.

Expert Pick: Washington -8

Indianapolis Colts vs Jacksonville Jaguars Expert Pick

So this is pretty nuts here. The Colts have lost six straight to the Jaguars and have not covered in any of those games. Now they come in as nearly two touchdown favorites against Jacksonville. Remember all they have to do is win. The Underdog is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings.

Expert Pick: Jaguars +16.5

Pittsburgh Steelers vs Baltimore Ravens Expert Pick

Ever since the loss of QB Lamar Jackson, the Ravens have been losing games left and right and now are favored by nearly a touchdown against the Steelers who may not be playing the best football right now but are doing just enough to cover and win. The Road team is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 meetings.

Expert Pick: Steelers +5.5

Tennessee Titans vs Houston Texans Expert Pick

Guess who is back Titans nation. RB Derrick Henry will be back with the Titans ready for another strong playoff push. The Texans have been double digit underdogs the whole season but have been hit and miss with being 4-6 ATS in that run. Titans are going to get a huge win and head into the playoffs as the number one seed.

Expert Pick: Titans -10

New Orleans Saints vs Atlanta Falcons Team Expert Pick

Does someone smell an upset? Remember back in Week 9 where the Falcons were +6.5 underdogs and beat the Saints by the final score of 27-25? Let’s run it back here. The Saints need a win here and a 49ers loss to get into the playoffs, but what happens whey they lose? They will be golfing with the Falcons.

Expert Pick: Falcons +3.5

New York Jets vs Buffalo Bills Expert Pick

The New York Jets have just one road win this season and it’s going to stay like that. Remember Josh Allen torched the Jets back in Week 10 for a season-high 366 passing yards on just 28 pass attempts, leading Buffalo to a 45-17 blowout. Rinse wash repeat here.

Expert Pick: Bills -16.5

San Francisco 49ers vs Los Angeles Rams Expert Pick

The long winning streak for the 49ers against the Rams will be coming to an end on Sunday afternoon. The 49ers are dealing with a QB situation where Jimmy Q is hurt and Trey Lance looked underwhelming against a weak Texans defense. This is where all the stars align for the Rams.

Expert Pick: Rams -3.5

New England Patriots vs Miami Dolphins Expert Pick

Let’s get weird again. The Patriots have lost six of their last eight visits in Miami and Tua is straight up 2-0 as a starter against the Patriots. A lot of points are on the table right now and a Dolphins team would love to play spoiler in helping the Patriots not win the division.

Expert Pick: Dolphins +7

Seattle Seahawks vs Arizona Cardinals Expert Pick

Could the Arizona Cardinals be back? They held Dak Prescott to under 6.0 yards per attempt and slowly have been getting back their defense including JJ Watt for the playoffs. Last time the Cardinals took on the Seahawks, they won by double digits with Colt McCoy. Now they have Kyler Murray back.

Expert Pick: Cardinals -6

Carolina Panthers vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers Expert Pick

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be without WR Antonio Brown as that ship has sailed and usually during these times, Tom Brady likes the silence the media with a blowout victory. They still can get the number 2 seed and the Carolina Panthers have been downright terrible this season. In the previous matchup this season, the Bucs won 32-6. Expect the same outcome.

Expert Pick: Bucs -8

Los Angeles Chargers vs Las Vegas Raiders Expert Pick

In the last three games, the Chargers have allowed 28.3 points per game against the Broncos, Texans and Chiefs. But guess what? The Chargers offense is way too over powered for the Raiders to play catch up and it showed in their first matchup this season. In the last 3 of five games the Chargers have gone over 30 points including dropping 41. Take the Chargers

Expert Pick: Chargers -3.5/ML
