Los Angels Rams vs New England 6:30 ET
Rams (+) over Patriots- I had to get this out sooner then later because I don't want to be distracted by any 'October Surprise' so to speak. 'We' have been riding the Patriots throughout the playoffs against the Chargers and two weeks ago again at Kansas City. In both instances the 'public' was against New England and now their attitude has changed and 'they' are overwhelmingly on Tom Brady and crew. The speak I keep hearing is how Los Angeles shown't even be here or that they don't belong here. Well, guess what they are here and the Saints couldn't hold the lead with two minutes to go, so boo on them. The Rams come into this fray 4-0 SU and ATS in their last four while the Patriots have scored 78 in the past two playoff games and any team that scores 70 or more points in two playoff games as a favorite is 0-6 ATS. In Las Vegas the 'sharps' are buying the Rams every time the game moves to +3 as they are jumping on what they consider value as LA did open -1.5. I can't help it and I believe this is a really strong play for the most part because people don't believe the Rams belong. Take LOS ANGELES!

L.A. Rams at New Orleans 3:05 ET
Saints (-) over Rams- A pair of great offensive teams with the exact same record (14-3) will be playing in 'perfect' conditions but one of them with have a huge advantage, and that is a raucous fan base. The Saints at home have already beaten L.A. 45-35 the first week in November. In that contest New Orleans went off as an underdog (+1.5) and now the oddsmakers believe that they are 5-points better (by-the-line) now than then. I could talk of the experience advantage at quarterback and combine that with the Saints having won their last seven home playoff games six with Brees at the helm alone with the home team going 7-0 in the last seven meetings. One last thing to pee on the Rams, LA is 1-4-1 ATS in their last six against teams with winning records. Take NEW ORLEANS!

Indianapolis at Kansas City 4:35 ET
Chiefs (-) over Colts- I think by now all have realized that Indianapolis has won 10-of-11 since their 1-5 start the best record in the entire NFL the past 12 weeks. Kansas City just hasn't been the same since the release of Kareem Hunt as they have gone 1-6-1 ATS in their last eight games with the lone ATS win in the final game against Oakland 35-3 which makes me think that was their 'tune-up' game. Chiefs first-year starter Pat Mahomes had 50 TD passes and threw for over 5,000 yards and they storyline for this matchup is about Andrew Luck. But, the Colts luck has run out! Too much attention to Indy and I keep hearing how KC is 0-4 Su and ATS in their last four playoff games as host. Take KANSAS CITY!

San Diego at Baltimore 1:30 ET
Ravens (-) over Chargers- Okay gang, which is the storyline that will remain prevalent in people's minds concerning this game. Will the populace be thinking that San Diego with Phillip Rivers who has the talent and 16 years experience to lead the Chargers to victory against the Ravens rookie quarterback who is better off running than throwing the football. These two hooked-up two weeks ago in San Diego and Baltimore (+4) won 22-10 as they held the Chargers to 198 yards total offense. One of the illusions of this contest is that San Diego has a more diverse (yes) and potent offense but, Baltimore actually has a slight advantage in total offense. There are trends to support either side as the road team is 4-0 ATS in last four meetings and the underdog is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings. But, they don't stand up to Baltimore being 7-0 ATS in their last playoff games including 5-0 ATS in Wildcard games. The believe the overall money will be too strong for the Chargers to over-come. Take BALTIMORE!

Seattle at Dallas 8:00 ET
Cowboys (-) over Seahawks- These two met in Week three in Seattle (-1) winning 24-13, although it that game the Cowboys had a small yardage advantage but still lost by double-digits. At season's start and even midway through the NFL schedule I had little faith in the Seahawks but they showed me that they are winners in 6-of-last-7 including 5-2 ATS. What I saw was a Pete Carroll coached team that got better as the season wore on and Russell Wilson is still among the best when on the move. Both clubs are 10-6 while Seattle has an edge on offense (because of Wilson) and a slight edge to Dallas on defense but not as much as most think as the Seahawks lead the NFL in take-aways plus-15 differential. When I first saw the 'number' my first thoughts were that Dallas is in trouble and I am surprised at the volume of Seattle backers and now it is too big to stop. The underdog is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings but Dallas is 7-1 straight-up at home and they will be ready. Intangibles will make the difference here, meaning home field revenge. Take the COWBOYS!

Indianapolis at Tennessee 8:20 ET
Titans (+) over Colts- The Colts coming galloping into Nashville riding a three-game winning streak and eight of nine and that makes this one easy as the winner is in and the loser is out! After starting the season 1-5 Andrew Luck and the Colts have shocked the entire NFL community with his and their performance this season and he brings a 10-0 record against Tennessee to the table. Luck is second behind Mahomes in TD passes (36) in the AFC and we know he will under center on Sunday. On the other side we are no so sure and I don't even know if it matters because Marcus Mariota has under 200 yards passing the past two weeks (combined) and hasn't thrown a touchdown in three weeks. The Titans have won their last four and are second in scoring defense 18-pts and have allowed one touchdown the last three weeks. Take TENNESSEE!

Denver at Oakland 8:15 ET
Raiders (+) over Broncos- What a paradox as a team as 'dark and sinister' as the Raiders who will host this game in the 'Black Hole' on Christmas Eve. Oakland is in the running for the worst NFL record and the first draft pick and will be moving to Las Vegas (Stadium issues) but most likely will play next season in San Francisco. After rising up at home and defeating Pittsburgh the Raiders reverted back to form and were taken out 30-14 in Cincinnati last week. Denver meanwhile has dropped their last two to fall out of the AFC wild card hunt and will most likely end up in the middle of the pack. The home team is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings and gets it done here. Take OAKLAND!

Chip's 'Guaranteed' NFC 'Highest-Rated' Megabucks
Chicago at San Francisco 4:05 ET
49ers (+) over Bears- Having used the Niners last week as a Power Play Best Bet 'outright' winner over Seattle I have no problems coming back with them this week. The Bears are in the same position as a number of others that have failed in the same situation, the week after they have clinched a playoff spot (Rams, Saints, and Chiefs) they all were beaten and I expect the same to happen here. If a team isn't ready mentally it doesn't matter who they put out on the field and coming off a win against Aaron Rogers doesn't help. Chicago is 1-4 ATS in their last five games in San Francisco and this season all four of the Niners wins came at home. Take SAN FRANCISCO!

Chip's 'Guaranteed' Money Game Winner
Baltimore at L.A. Chargers 8:20 ET
Ravens (+) over Chargers- There are a few what I consider 'key' factors that are supporting my position on the contest. To start with the Chargers have already clinched a playoff spot and that has been a death nil the next time out for teams that clinched I.e.-Rams, Pats, Saints and Chiefs all lost after clinching a spot. Just in general with L.A. Coming off ending a nine-game losing streak against Kansas City there has to be a feeling of satisfaction, inflated ego and contentment, all this plays into the Ravens hands. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last five as well as the road team 4-1 ATS in last five meetings. This will be a match of strengths as Baltimore will try and control the ball on the ground averaging over 200 yards since Lamar Jackson took over at QB. But, LA's strength is their rushing defense and Melvin Gordon on offense as well as a seasoned Phil Rivers at QB. The clinching in the clincher. Take BALTIMORE!

New Orleans at Carolina 8:15 ET
Panthers (+) over Saints- Carolina's year has been a 'Tale of Two Seasons.' It was five short weeks ago the halfway point in the season and the Panthers were riding high on the arm and legs of Cam Newton and they have lost five straight four of which were on the road. New Orleans has already clinched the division and is battling the Rams for the conference lead. Carolina will close the season at New Orleans and will need to start here first. They are 5-1 SU at home and the underdog is7-1 ATS in the last eight meetings. Take the PANTHERS!

New England at Pittsburgh 4:25 ET
Steelers (+) over Patriots- Pittsburgh had a shaky start to the season opening 1-2-1 and then reeled off six straight wins to take command at 7-2-1. But, since then, they have dropped three straight and now hold just a half-game lead over the charging Ravens. New England of course is still steady and it took a freaky last play of the game touchdown to beat them last week in Miami. Tom Brady always seems to be at his best when up against 'name' quarterbacks and is 5-0 the last five meetings including twice last season and has 25 TD's and only four interceptions in 10 career games against Pittsburgh. Find and good, but, the Steelers are 8-1 ATS at home as an underdog off a loss. New England is just 3-4 SU and ATS on the road go down here. Take PITTSBURGH!

Seattle at San Francisco 4:05 ET
49ers (+) over Seahawks- Now let me step back and get a good look at this scenario. From what I've seen out of Seattle the past four weeks is nothing but wins and 'covers.' the Seahawks are 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 games including a 43-16 beatdown of San Francisco two weeks ago at home. The Niners have struggled once again although they gone the outright win over Denver last week they are were 1-5 ATS in the pervious six. Then I look at the series between these two and see the Seahawks with nine straight wins and wonder why this line opened so low and got lower. With Kansas City up at home next week Seattle will get caught peeking. Take SAN FRANCISCO!

Cleveland at Denver 8:20 ET
Broncos (+) over Browns- Okay, here we go...I kept hearing that the Browns are closing in on a playoff spot despite their 5-7-1 record. A mighty improvement over the past few years as they finally dumped their 'dead-weight' coach Hue Jackson who is now helping with the dismantling of the Bengals. Denver is also in the mix after three straight wins but the loss to the Niners last week have them is dire need of a win here. A win last week for Cleveland was their third in four games but they have followed five wins by going 1-4 ATS the next time out. Denver is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings...take the BRONCOS! (PS- Don't miss Chip's AFC Game of the Year (9-1 90%) on Sunday!

San Diego at Kansas City 8:20 ET
Chargers (+) over Chiefs- Over the years we have had numerous opportunities make money in big games with the Chargers and they always seem to have fallen short. At 10-3 Los Angeles (Don't I mean San Diego) has become a formidable for for the AFC leading Chiefs. Kansas City is undefeated at home at 6-0 but just 3-3 ATS while the Chargers are 5- straight and AATS on the road. Although LA is 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings the road team is 6-1 ATS and it is time for Philip Rivers take up when it counts and show the young phenom Mahomes what a veteran can do. Take the CHARGERS!

Minnesota at Seattle 8:15 ET
Vikings (+) over Seahawks- A month ago the Seahawks appeared 'dead in the water' as they were under .500 at 4-5, but, they have managed to win their last three games to put themselves back in the playoff hunt. Even with their loss last night the Rams have the division clinched and Seattle is scraping for a Wild Card spot. At 6-5 Minnesota has a half-game lead over Philadelphia, Washington and Carolina and have alternated wins and losses the last five games. The Vikings have struggled against 'better' competition as they are 1-7 ATS in their last eight against teams with winning records. Seattle has won the last four meetings but Russell Wilson is trowing for a career low 226 yards a game. Take MINNESOTA!

L.A. Rams at Chicago 8:20 ET
Bears (+) over Rams- A month ago the Rams were dropped for the ranks of the unbeaten by New Orleans and everybody decided that the Saints were the best team in the NFC. Well, three wins latter and Los Angeles is atop the NFC and has clinched the NFC West Division crown for the second straight year. Last week Chicago mounted a second half comeback against in New York but fell in overtime 30-27 to the Giants with Chase Daniels at the helm ending a five-game win streak. It appears Mitch Trubisky will be back running the Bears offense and will be opposed by Jared Goff. With the Rams having already clinched I believe that that believe they will be totally focused but I think not. Important game of Chicago who are 6-2 ATS against the rams in the last eight meetings and they are 6-0-1 ATS at home against a team with a winning record while LA is 0-3-1 ATS against teams with winning records. Take CHICAGO!

Redskins (+) over Giants- A few short weeks ago the Redskins had a two-game lead and were running away with the NFC East and now after three straight losses and a plethora of injuries that are and underdog at home to a 4-8 New York Giants team. For Washington the answer is Mark Sanchez who will make his first start since 2015 and the third different quarterback to start for the Redskins in the past four weeks. New York has won 3-of-4 and is off a home overtime win over Chicago. I expect a heavy dose of Adrian Peterson to protect Sanchez's limited knowledge of the offense. This may not be so bad with the porous Giants defensive line and their strong defense putting pressure on Eli Manning how will get nervous feet. The underdog is 11-5 n the last 16 meetings and now without Beckham to Giants drop another notch. Take WASHINGTON!

These two have met five times the last 15 years with the road team going 4-1 ATS. The road has been and will be so much easier for New England who for years has played in the weakest division in football.

That's when the picked-up their first win of the year as 21-18 non-cover win over Cleveland and then nine straight wins nine straight 'covers' including 5-0 SU and ATS on the road. Dallas is another story at 6-5 share the lead in the NFC East and have won three straight with Ezekiel Elliott once again becoming the league's leading rusher (1,074 yards). The Cowboys will need that to keep the ball out of Brees hands (76.4 completions) and possess the ball. Pokes must come up with 'Big D' to win here. Take DALLAS!

Titans (+) over Texans- The Houston Texans are on a franchise high seven-game win streak after dropping their first games this season. This steak has not been as impressive as say the Saints streak because they are just 4-6 ATS overall and just 1-3 ATS at home as they have won four games by three points or less. The Monday night scenario is so one-sided I have to consider it a key factor, Tennessee is 7-0 ATS in their last seven MNF appearances while Houston is 2-10 ATS in their last 12 Monday nighters.

Vikings (-) over Packers- Do you still believe in Aaron Rogers...I'm not so sure anymore. Yes, he's still great, I see that, but something is different. With Green Bay at 4-5-1 (tie vs Minny) a loss would pretty much make them a playoff after though. Both clubs are off losses with the Vikings quarter Kirk Cousins under fire of late losing 2-of-3 with only five touchdowns and four interceptions. It's time for him to shine for Minnesota in front of a national audience. Green Bay is 0-5 SU on the road and have lost four of six and is 0-4-1 ATS in their last five games on field turf (How 'bout dat!). The home team is 4-1 ATS in the last five games and are the play here. Take MINNESOTA!

Falcons (+) over Saints- Oh man, this is one of those spots, you know the one where everyone gets 'smart' and takes the weaker team and gets crushed by the 'public' favorite. Since their opening game of the season New Orleans has been a point spread darling going 8-1 ATS and covering numbers in a huge way. The underdog is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings but the Falcons are 1-4 ATS in their last five road games. After the way the Saints took apart Philadelphia last week 48-7 and the way Atlanta blew its game to Dallas they have to move toward the center. Better from the Falcons and less from New Orleans.

Rams (-) over Chiefs- Now, this is expected to be the best game of the season as the L.A. Rams the NFL Super Bowl favorites host the AFC's most sensational offense owned by the Kansas City Chiefs. What I didn't expect was the 'public' and the 'wise guys' are both on the same side. And that's not all the majority of professional handicapping services are going on a limb with the Chiefs. It just looks to attractive being able to take points with Kansas City's offense. The adjustment to returning back to play in Los Angeles from Mexico City will be much easier for the Rams than the Chiefs who be will moving from Tee-Pee to Tee-Pee. Take LOS ANGELS RAMS!

Lions (+) over Panthers- Very few of Bill Belichick's former coaches have been very successful and and Detroit's head coach Matt Patricia looks like another doomed coaches that is in over his head. The lions offense which was one of the best last season is now ranked 23rd while their defense against the Pass is among the worst in the league. Detroit has just four sacks in their current three game losing streak and hosts a Carolina squad that has doubts of their own. The Panthers off their Thursday night beating by Pittsburgh have shown weakness at the corners and that should be enough for Matt Stafford to expose. Take DETROIT!

Buccaneers (+) over Giants- So, the Giants won a game and defeated the Mighty Forty-niners who were on the third string quarterback. Despite what you may think you saw last Monday night New York is a long way for being a competitive team in this league. The Giants have won twice on the road but are a dismal 0-4 SU and ATS at home losing by an average of 12 points per game. Tampa Bay started the season with a win over New Orleans (the Saints only loss) and have realized not matter what the score that Jamis Winston is no the answer and they will be going with Ryan Fitzpatrick who has plenty of experience at Met Life Stadium one of the toughest places to throw the football because of the crosswinds (Phil Simms made the adjustment). Fitzpatrick threw for over 400 yards again last week and will put up enough points against this imposter defense of New York. Take TAMPA BAY!

The Steelers were 1-2-1 and were looking up at the entire division (even the Browns at the time) and have reeled off five straight wins and more importantly 'covers.' Jacksonville is just a shell of themselves without Leonard Fournette who returned to action after missing four games. In last year's playoff game 'Big Ben' threw for 469 yards and five TD passes in the Jaguars 45-42 playoff win as a 7-point dog at Pittsburgh. Jacksonville has lost their last five but with the return of Fournett will look to control the ball and eek out a win. Take JAGUARS!

49ers (-) over Giants- Two of the NFL's bottom feeders pair up in Santa Clara where they question is can anyone here play quarterback? The Giants of course are stuck with lead foot and slow moving Eli Manning who is on pace to set records in total sacks. San Francisco started the season with what they thought was their 'franchise' quarterback in Jimmy Garoppolo and he went down with a season ending injury and C.J. Beathard came in and is now under concussion protocol. That brings us to Nick Mullens who got his chance and played to a 151.9 passer rating in his debut. Believe it or not the Niners are stronger and in a much better position then New York. Take SAN FRANCISCO!

Bengals (+) over Saints- New Orleans has established themselves as the front runner in the NFL with their impressive win over the previously undefeated L.A. Rams. The Saints (7-1) have won seven in-a-row since an opening day loss to Tampa Bay and are averaging 35 points per game as Drew Brees leads the NFL in completion percentage (76.3) and passer rating (120.6). Cincinnati is off a bye week and will be without A.J. Green who leads the team in receptions and are 3-6-1 ATS with him in the lineup but will have workhorse Joe Mixon running the ball to keep them in the game. After such a huge win and the disappointment of the Dez Bryant injury I can see some letdown while the Bengals (5-3) who trail Pittsburgh (6-2-1) by a game for the division being very focused after a bye week. Take CINCINNATI!

(Haven't had many of those in NFL lately) Well, since they have dominated Baltimore and Tampa Bay wining the last two at home and now take to the road where they are 1-2 SU and ATS. Although Ben Roethlisberger bitches about playing on Thursday's the Steelers are 3-0-1 ATS. Add that Pittsburgh is 5-0 SU last five and 6-0 ATS in the last six meetings. Carolina is tough against the run ranking 8th but it is the Steelers explosive passing attack that they will have to be concerned with. You should be concerned about Chip's Pac-12 Game of Year (7-0 100%) Saturday winner! Take the STEELERS!

Cowboys (-) over Titans- Tennessee and Dallas have identical 3-4 records with the Titans having lost their last three and are off the loss in London two weeks ago. Dallas like so many mediocre clubs plays well at home going 3-0 while being winless (0-4) on the road. The Cowboys like the Titans are off a bye week although they didn't have to travel overseas. Neither quarterback is any thing to write home about and both squads have fine defenses but thenTitans offense is one of the worst in the NFL while the Cowboys at least have Ezekiel Elliot.

Detroit is coming off a home loss to Seattle (28-14) while the Vikings lost at home to New Orleans 30-22 after having won three in-a-row. If Minnesota is going to have their way they will do it on the round were the Lions defense is the weakest.

Not just believe its the Steelers and Ravens but because of the spot these two enter the battle. Pittsburgh has won three straight and at 4-2 lead the AFC North while Baltimore has dropped their last two and have fallen to 4-4. Just with records alone the Ravens are in desperate straits to win this game. Falling 3-game back in the loss column after your season mid-point spells problems for playoff hopes.

These two clubs are a combined 2-13 with Oakland's 45-42 win in overtime against Cleveland and the Niners 30-27 win over Detroit. San Francisco has dropped their last six but have been competitive in most although 2-5 ATS while the Raiders are 1-6 ATS and haven't even been close. Oakland lost even more players this week as are willing to retire rather then play for this, the worst of NFL teams (Ck NY Giants). Niners CJ Beathard is questionable but it won't matter. Derek Carr is a turnover machine and will give the ball up enough for the Home team to shine. Take SAN FRANCISCO!

I'm wondering if they are trying to tell us that the Rams are that good or Green Bay heading south. We should realize that both could be true and I do suspect that the Packers are on the down slide. Problems with Rogers are greater then 'they' are willing to admit as he appears at times to be hobbling. Green Bay have the best QB on the field but Los Angeles has the best running back with Todd Gurley leading the NFL with 686 yards on the ground and 14 touchdowns (Rogers only has 12 TD's). I think that the line is excessively high and that gives me thought that the oddsmakers are making it easy for 'us' to take the points. Well, not this time. Take the RAMS!

Philadelphia vs Jacksonville 9:30 ET
Jaguars (+) over Eagles- Do any of you guys or gals recall what has happened the previous NFC East Super Bowl Champions the following season. The Giants alone didn't make the playoffs after each of their four Super Bowl wins and the Eagles 'hangover' runs as deep. Okay, enough of these guys falling flat, how about the Jaguars play of late it has been a disgrace. These two met for the NFC title last season and it doesn't look that either of them will make it back to that level. Big news about the Jags their QB and it will be Blake Bortles and the team will respond. Jacksonville has won three in-a-row at Wembley Stadium and this makes four. Take the JAGUARS!

Cincinnati at Kansas City 5:20 ET
Bengals (+) over Chiefs- Those 'Dirty-rotten' pieces of garbage, did it to 'us' 'me' again. I frigging' HATE this club as they find ways to lose that can't be anticipated. Yet yes, I am talking about the Cincinnati Bengals am I will have them 'good' here. Kansas City falls into what Wayne and I like to call the 'Bang-Bang) theory. When are team, be it basketball, football or any sport for that matter has it's undefeated streak broken into the season that they struggle to recover emotionally before their next encounter. Therefore more often then not they don't make it especially as a favorite. All the trends say to fade the Bengals but I can't here. Take CINCINNATI!

New England at Chicago 1:00 ET
Bears (+) over Patriots- I love it, I love that way the Bears just folded in Miami in a game that they thought they had won. And that was the problem, once you start thinking about next weeks opponent (New England) you can never get it back. Chicago blew late to the Dolphins because the Patriots were creeping into their minds. (even if not, it could have happened) But, the point should be that the Pat's will have their full attention for a full sixty minutes. New England handed Kansas City their first loss last Sunday night scoring 43 points. Here's the rub, NE is just 3-9-1 ATS after scoring 40 or more points and I have more, The Bears are 10-3 straight-up and 11-2 ATS at home against AFC East off a win (Thank you ML-Playbook). Anyway you slice it the Bears are the 'play.' Take CHICAGO!

Jacksonville at Dallas 4:25 ET
Cowboys (+) over Jaguars- The Cowboys have been one of the least impressive teams on offense this season despite having the NFL's leading rusher in Ezekiel Elliott who has 480 ground yards. The obvious problem for Dallas in their quarterbacking and receiving. Dak Prescott has been exposed with his inaccurate throws and must keep drives alive with his legs. Jacksonville has QB issues of their own with Blake Bortles inconsistent play. With Leonard Fournette out once again the Dallas defense (one of the better ones) can stifle the Jaguars offense. Take DALLAS!

L.A. Rams at Seattle 4:25 ET
Seahawks (+) over Rams- I don't know how I can even think of taking this 'side' as I believe the Seahawks are on the downslide while we all realize the Rams are the team to beat. Los Angeles is undefeated 4-0 and 3-1 ATS and have the betting darling from the get-go leading the NFL in scoring averaging 35-points per game. Seattle has put wins together over powerhouses Dallas and Arizona and is just 1-2-1 ATS but have allowed just 30 points in last two contests. Checking past history the Rams are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 meetings in Seattle although they are just 1-6-1 ATS at home against teams with winning records. Still, somehow...take SEAHAWKS!

Tennessee at Buffalo 1:00 ET
Bills (+) over Titans- Okay, now that the 'public' has jumped on the Tennessee bandwagon it is time to tip the cart. After an opening week loss at Miami the Titans have won three streak including their win over the Super Bowl Champs Philadelphia last week and they come into the Bills den and the are angry. Buffalo has shutout 22-0 ay Green Bay and was humiliated in the process. This remember was a playoff team a season ago and pounded the Vikings three weeks ago. Buffalo is 4-1 ATS in their last five games following a loss. Take them here...take the BILLS!

Baltimore at Cleveland 1:00 ET
Browns (+) over Ravens- From what I've seen on the field Baltimore has been the most consistent and more professional in their approach to games and play. Cleveland is way improved on the field but still has the same personal running the show and he just doesn't know how to win! This has been a one-sided series with the Ravens winning 18 of the last 20 including 5-0 SU/ATS in the last five meetings, but with new quarterbacking behind No. 1 draft pick Baker Mayfield (the new Brett Favre) the Browns believe that they can turn the tide. Browns might surprise here as they have nothing but this game to look forward to. Take CLEVELAND!

Kansas City at Denver 8:20 ET
Broncos (+) over Chiefs- Yep, what more can I or anyone say about Pat MaHomes! Kansas City has jumped out to a perfect 3-0 SU and ATS scoring 38-42-38 with Mahomes throwing for 10 TD's with no interceptions. Denver opened 2-0 with west coast wins over Oakland and Seattle but took it on the chin 27-14 back east at Baltimore. Now, the Broncos are on familiar grounds where the decibel level is a loud a any NFL stadium but, the Chiefs are 5-0 SU and ATS in the last five meetings and seem invincible right now. But, this is a tough spot for a division team on the road on Monday Night with all the attention of the football world on them. I have got to have...DENVER!

Tampa Bay at Chicago 1:00 ET
Buccaneers (+) over Bears- I understand the impact of the Bears defense and their power running game but they still have a major weakness and that is their quarterback play. The Chicago offense is limited because of the things Mitchell Trubisky can't do. Tampa Bay on the other hand most likely will go with their veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick with Jamis Winston in the wings. The games has before an air war and here the Bears are out-armed. Buccaneers have thrown for 1,202 yards while Chicago has managed just 534 yards through the air. Chicago has won their last two but the Bucs are 5-0 ATS in their last five against the NFC. Take TAMPA BAY!

New England at Detroit 8:20 ET
Lions (+) over Patriots- You don't have to check this out but I believe that the former Bill Belichik coaches struggle when put up against their mentor. So, from what I have seen out of first coach Hank Patricia's work I question weather he will make it as a head coach. I sort of feel that the only way for the Lions to win is for Belichick to give Patrica his game plan. Although New England has problems of their own, Brady not-withstanding. The Lions showed plenty of life in the second half against the Niners and came close to winning but earned a 'back-door' cover. More of the same tonight...Take DETROIT!

Green Bay at Washington 1:00 ET
Redskins (+) over Packers- I've been right twice with and against the Redskins and I really like the my side here today. Green Bay was a huge money-maker for the Books last week as the Vikings were driven to the favorite by public and wise guy action both. Of course the Packers have the current Superman in Rogers at quarterback but Washington has veterans of their win that can cut the mustard and Alex Smith is just 20 shy of Rogers total and will be primed to atone for last weeks home loss. The host team is 3-1-1 ATS in the last five meetings. Take WASHINGTON!

New York Jets at Cleveland 8:20 ET
Jets over Browns- Okay, here we go! Here we have a team that has won once in their last 35 tries (0-1-1) and they are favored against the 1-1 New York Jets. Many were hoping (especially the NFL Network) that the two No.1 picks Sam Darnold and Baker Mayfield would have a shootout here but the overall No. 1 pick for the Browns will be taking a seat for veteran quarterback Tyrod Taylor who is at just 53% completions while the rookie for the Jets is at 66%. I just don't respect the idea that a winless team (into their third season) is favored and the 'public' is all over them. Take the NEW YORK J-E-T-S!

Kansas City at Pittsburgh 1:00 ET
Steelers (-) over Chiefs- I don't quite understand why the rush to pay against the Steelers. Could be the response of then tie against Cleveland or many be more the absence of 'what's his name.' interceptions and six overall turnovers are the explanation. Pittsburgh has a 14-point lead in the fourth but gave up the ball and came away with the tie, and they will be more then ready against the Chiefs this week. But, ha here comes the Chiefs on the warpath with fearless leader Pat Mahomes who threw for four TD's last week. In a matter of performances the Steelers out-gained the Browns by 155 yards while Kansas City although a winner were out-gained by 180 yards. LAY IT...PITTSBURGH!

L.A. Rams at Oakland 10:20 ET
Raiders (+) over Rams- Okay, the John Gruden Raiders Edition II starts tonight and this time it is supposed to be a 10-year rein. Of course the big stink in Oakland is that the Raiders allowed Khalil Mack to escape to Chicago for a pair of No. 1 picks that won't be able to help until they are in Las Vegas. Los Angeles signed their huge defensive holdout as Aaron Donald came to terms and returns to the club that won their division last season for the first time since 2003. The Raiders had a disappointing season last year falling to 6-10 as injuries took their toll. This time around Oakland surprises the Rams. Take the RAIDERS!

Dallas at Carolina 4:25 ET
Cowboys (+)over Panthers- It is sort of hard to remember the Cowboys were 13-3 in 2016 after what has happening to their 'playing' personnel since that time. Gone are Dez Bryant and Jason Witten some of their stronger offensive line a man and along with long time and veteran place kicker Dan Bailey. What remains is still worth mentioning as Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, linebacker Sean Lee and defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence. The Cowboys has defeated Carolina five straight until their last meeting three years ago but Dallas is looking to bounce back from what both Elliott and Prescott admit were disappointing performances. Boy's shock the 'public' with a WIN here. Take DALLAS!

Chip's Vegas Hotline Total Winner
Falcons/Eagles (Over)- Now, think about this, during the pre-season Atlanta scored 0, 14, 6 and 7 points in their four games while Philadelphia scored 14, 20, 0 and 10 points in their four games. So neither teamed scored as many points in four games that the single game total is for this contest. I can give you stats that will be meaningless between these two clubs that played to a 15-10 Eagles win in the playoffs last season. There isn't one logical reason that anyone should play the 'over' except that I believe this is a trap and both clubs showed little offense during the pre-season and I expect them both to attack the goal line all night here. Play this game OVER!

Philadelphia vs. New England 6:30 ET
Patriots (-) over Eagles- 'Wait as long as you can!' This 'number' should do one thing and one thing only and that is drop. Well, there is always the possibility that late heavy 'Wise guy or sharps' money will make a difference but I doubt it. Now, about the game itself...Is it defense or quarterbacks? When push comes to shove in this matchup I have to believe that experience counts and although Nick Foles has had a great playoff run with posting a passer rating of at least 100 in his first three playoff games but things will be different for him Sunday. Tom Brady should be the difference as the Eagles defense is better at home (17.3) then on the road (23.5) and the surroundings can be draining. Take NEW ENGLAND!

Philadelphia vs. New England 6:30 ET
Eagles/Patriots (OVER) – You know one of the first things I heard about this game and the Patriots combo of Belichick and Brady is that in six Super Bowls they have failed to score a point in the first quarter. Well, if you can find a 'prop' that 'Will the Pats score in the 1st, Yes or no! Throw it all on the YES! The only way the Eagles can win is too kept this game close with a strong defense because if it becomes a quarterback shoot-out I know who I like. Coaching for New England will look to put Foles in a spot where he has to compete with Brady and then it is OVER!

Minnesota at Atlanta 7:37 ET
Vikings (-) over Eagles- Okay, enough is enough. Happy to have used Philadelphia as our 'Top Play of the weekend as they manhandled Atlanta 15-10 (not allowing an offensive drive for a score). But, this week they won’t get the 15 points they managed last week. Minnesota’s defense will make the loss of Carson Wentz the difference...Nick Foles can't beat this defense. As long as the Vikings don't give the ball away they win and cover. Take MINNESOTA!

New Orleans at Minnesota 4:40 ET
Vikings (-) over Saints- This should be (you never can tell) the best games of the weekend as the Saints led by Drew Brees bring their high-powered offense to Minnesota to encounter the NFL's top-rated defense. These two met opening week with the Viking led by San Bradford won easily 29-19. Bradford of course was replaced by Case Keenum in the second half the following weeks and has been behind center the rest of the way. Things are also different for New Orleans as Adrian Peterson was their prime running back to start the season and eventually was shipped to Arizona with the sensational Alvin Kamara picking up the slack. Minnesota also lost their top running back rookie Dalvin Cook who went down in Week 4. in the playoffs defense mounts supreme and the Vikings own it. Take MINNESOTA!

Atlanta at Philadelphia 4:35 ET
Eagles (+) over Falcons- It's time to circle the wagons! Never before and their have been many instances where a key player most likely a quarterback when out for a game has the opinion of a team had such a dramatic change. Philadelphia as we are all aware has the best record in the NFC and earned home field throughout the payoffs and no one seems t care. With Carson Wentz gone and Nick Floes now leading (?) the way the Eagles have been grounded. There are a few things to remember, the first of which is that Philadelphia has the third ranked rushing offense and that is after their final two games when they had already clinched the No. 1 seed. Granted the Eagles finished the season with a pair of offensive clunkers but they have had two week (actually 4 weeks) to refresh and revitalize and will be ready for the Falcons. As the first ever top seed to play at home as an underdog in the playoffs the Eagles will rally together. Take PHILADELPHIA!

Atlanta at Philadelphia (TOTAL)
Falcons/Eagles (UNDER)- This is the only way to go in this encounter as I see it. To be short and sweet it is obvious that Philadelphia will struggle to put points on the board and would like to run the ball and keep it out of Foles hands. On the other side Atlanta will be up against the top run defense and the best scoring defense at home. Play the UNDER!

Buffalo at Jacksonville 1:05 ET
Jaguars (-) over Bills- Usually, when making a selection on a side I will weigh the differences and often move one way or another as information is collected. Sometimes, the knowledge you gain will change your original instincts. This has not happened here! The Bills have been good to 'us' this year and they crushed me when I tried to get 'smart' and play against them in Miami (Sick pick). But, with a limited passing ability I believe the Jacksonville defense will create enough positive field position enough times to score and 'cover' this number. I liked the Jags from the start and 'we' are going to win with them Sunday. I like that they lost their last game while Buffalo was shocked to even qualify. Take JACKSONVILLE!

Tennessee at Kansas City 4:30 ET
Chiefs (-) over Titans- I hope the large point spread here will educe many to take the points in this opening Wild Card game even though Tennessee running back DeMarco Murray has been ruled out with an MCI tear. I personally don't believe that there is much of a drop off with Derrick Henry taking his place. Kansas City who enjoys one of the NFL's strongest home field advantages has won a playoff game as hosts in 24 years. The Titans meanwhile are in the post-season for the first time since 2008 after defeating Jacksonville and have dropped three of their last four on the road and just don't measure up here. Lay it...Take KANSAS CITY!

Dolphins (+) over Bills- Quick turn around for a pair of clubs that played two weeks ago in Buffalo where they won 24-16 and need to win again to have a shot at the playoffs for the first time since 1999. Both these clubs are challenged offensively with the Dolphins missing their starting quarterback, two offensive lineman and two running backs amount 14 player in injured reserve. But, Jay Cutler has replaced Tannehill and is 6-7 with little preparation as he was thrown into the mix after quickly after signing.Take MIAMI!

Titans (+) over Jaguars- There are a number of teams with nothing to play for and that is not the case with the Titans. Tennessee needs to win in the worst way while Jacksonville who says that they are all-in to win this week have won their division but must play in the AFC Wildcard as a host next week. The Titans have lost their last three and may be without DeMarco Murray who has a MCL tear. As much as Jags coach Doug Marrone insists he will 'play-to-win' the thought of Leonard Foutnette pulling up lame for next week has to be on his mind. Take the team with stronger motivation...take TENNESSEE!

49ers (+) over Jaguars- Boy, do 'we' love that Jaguars defense! Jacksonville defense is ranked No. 1 in scoring defense, sacks, passing yards forced fumbles and third in total yards and yet they have something in common with San Francisco...they have both won their last three games. Jimmy Garoppolo is undefeated as a 49ers starter (3-0) but will be facing a stone wall Sunday. The Jaguars are little banged-up with Fournette and Allen missing practice time this week. Niners have enough defense to neutralize Blake Bortles inconsistent play. Take SAN FRANCISCO!

Titans (+) over Rams- Imagine this...fired Los Angeles coach Jeff Fisher is upset because he isn't getting any credit for building this Rams team into what it is today. The LA turn around has been the lead story in the NFL this season and they enter Sunday's contest against Tennessee is important for playoff position. The titans are one of three teams tied for the final two spots and are coming off a horrible offensive performance at Arizona losing 13-7 their second straight loss. Rams off their 'biggest' win of the season at Seattle they should get caught here. Tennessee is much better at home where they are 5-1 straight and they will be getting points here so I like the value. Great spot! Take the TITANS!

Buccaneers (+) over Falcons- Atlanta who trails New Orleans and Carolina by one-game can survive the Super Bowl loser syndrome by winning their final three games and qualify for the playoffs. Lucky for the Falcons they start with Tampa Bay who has dropped their last three and always seem to fall short when up against this NFC South going 0-5 ATS in their last five division encounters. As a matter of fact Atlanta is 7-2 ATS in the last nine meetings but Jameis Winston has had some of his better performances against the Falcons throwing for 542 yards and seven scores and only one interception in two meetings last season.

Both squads are on the outside looking in as they are one game out of the final playoff spot. Dallas defeated the Giants in a 4th quarter romp while Oakland was looking dreadful in their 26-15 loss to Kansas City who allowed the Raiders two 4th quarter scores in a game they were never in. Derek Carr doesn't look he has recovered from the injury that knocked him out the final weeks but has 21 scoring passes and only five interceptions in his last 10 games at home. Take the RAIDERS!

Steelers (+) over Patriots- I am having trouble getting past a few facts surrounding this game. To start with Pittsburgh has the best record 11-2 in the AFC, next they are at home and after all that how can they be an underdog' here. It doesn't seem right but then I see that Tom Brady has thrown 22 touchdown passes and zero interceptions in the past seven games against Pittsburgh. The Patriots will have Rob Gronkowski back and have added Kenny Britt. For the Steelers it is difficult to measure the loss of linebacker Ryan Shazier and yet they are the side here. Take PITTSBURGH!

If I look at the history I see that the Seahawks have already defeated the Rams in LA 16-10 and are 8-2 ATS versus the Rams as hosts. But, there is always a but the underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings. Take LOS ANGELES.

The Chargers started 0-4 and are 7-2 since while Kansas City won their first five and have dropped six of eight that has brought them together here. LA when getting points is 4-1 ATS in Kansas City but the Chiefs have won the last 1o meetings.

He threw for 299 yards in their first meeting a 27-24 last minute win at Chicago. Mitch Trubisky is getting better each weeks as he is off a 25-32 for 271 yard performance and was 18-30 with a TD in the first meeting.

Jaguars (-) over Seahawks- Okay, the Seahawks pulled off a great win over Philadelphia last Sunday night (Megabucks Bail-Out winner) but it was really a one-man show as Russell Wilson once again showed just how valuable he is. But, this week he is up against the NFL's top-rated defense as they lead in total defense (282.5 yards), scoring defense (14.8) and passing defense (167.1). Wilson has accounted for 29 of the Seahawks 30 touchdowns...one man can not beat this defense. It's Sacksonville...Take the JAGUARS!

Rams (-) over Eagles- Now, as I was speaking to one of my more respected colleagues he mentioned that if this game was played last week that the Eagles not the Rams would be favored and he believes that the 'bookmaker' has over-reacted. Well, maybe he has but the 'public' doesn't seem to care as they are most of the 'action' is on the noble birds. I am aware Philadelphia remained o the west coast after last weeks battle in Seattle but I don't know if that matters. I like this stop for Los Angeles. Take the RAMS!

Last week I played 'against' New Orleans and paid the price, this week they are on the road against a Falcons team in that closes the season against four division opponents. Two huge trends that can't be ignored is that the underdog is 13-3 ATS in the last 16 meetings and even better Atlanta is 6-1 ATS in their last seven Thursday night games. Take ATLANTA!

Mike Tomlin has had the best of his counter-part Marvin Lewis winning 17 of the 22 meetings over the past 12 years including 11-1 straight up from Game 10 out.

But, things happen after a loss, the feeling of invincibility is shaken and they will find it difficult to return to their pervious form. Carolina's defense is one of the best in the NFL as it turned the tide (UGH) last week against the Jets. Look for the Panthers to surprise here. Take CAROLINA!

Tampa Bay at Green Bay 1:00 ET
Buccaneers (+) over Packers- Oh no, don't say it's so...Jameis Winston will be back at quarterback for Tampa Bay. Green Bay is already without their HOF QB as Aaron Rogers is still sidelined and Brett Hundley just doesn't cut it. Oh, so you think he looked good against Pittsburgh last Sunday night but understand this the Steelers were playing that game with the knowledge that at some time Hundley and the Packers would fall...and they did. Green Bay should not be favored over anybody with this guy quarterbacking. Take TAMPA BAY!

Washington at Dallas 8:25 ET
Cowboys over Redskins- Last time I looked Kirk Cousins was the NFC's leading passer and yet the Redskins are a 5-6 club that is looking to measure up in this round-up with the Cowboys. You see before the 'Boys embarked on their current 3-game losing streak scoring less then 10 points in every game they destroyed the 'Skins in Washington 33-19. Of course that was when Ezekiel Elliot ran for 150 yards and I have word that he won't do that again...at least not this week. Dallas is still running at a 4.4 yard clip without Elliot but Dak Prescott has been affected the most with five interceptions since Elliots departure while have thrown only four all last season. Dallas knows the can handle Washington and will make the proper adjustments. Take the COWBOYS!

Carolina at New York Jets 1:00 ET
Jets (+)**** over Panthers- It appears Carolina is on a roll winning their last three and already with more wins this year (7) then the entire 2016 season. Cam Newton is certainly the center piece and was outstanding in the Panthers last game two weeks ago dismantling of Miami 45-21. This week New ton will get his favorite receiver back as Greg Olsen return for the injured list and the Jets have had difficulties with tight ends this season allowing six touchdowns. New York has already surpassed most expectation with four wins as they are 3-2 straight-up at home and 6-0 ATS in their last six. Better then thought of the Jets fly high here. Take NEW YORK!

New York Giants at Washington 8:30 ET
Giants (+) over Redskins- Washington dropped their second straight after blowing a 15-point lead with under 4-minutes to play in the Super Dome in New Orleans on Sunday. The heart break of the realization that they are now 4-6 instead of 5-5 and it will take two weeks to get even again. The Giants were 'our' Major Shocker' winner over KC and have regrouped after two months of awful football. The Redskins defense has fallen to 31st and with Eli Manning posting a 17-8 record as a starter against Washington while Kirk Cousins in 2-4 against the Giants. Take NEW YORK!

Philadelphia at Dallas 8:30 ET
Cowboys (+) over Eagles- Well, Jerry Jones gambled and Dallas lost. Zeke Elliot will miss the next five games as his six-game suspension was finally enforced. Last week's game a 27-7 loss to Atlanta was the Cowboys in their first game without Ezekiel Elliot was a disaster as we predicted and that isn't when I expect out of them the rest of the way. I understand Philadelphia is the best team in the NFL (8-1) and have won seven straight including six straight covers and are coming off a bye week but the rolls are so reversed here as the Eagles are favored in the heart of Texas. Dallas isn't as bad as they looked and will get 'professional' here. Take the COWBOYS!

Detroit at Chicago 1:00 ET
Bears (+) over Lions- If ever a bigger group of 'paper lions' every existed anywhere it is here. Detroit enters the Windy City having won their last two and knowing that they have defeated the Bears seven of the last eight meetings in this series but are only 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings. Chicago has dropped their last two and no doubt has trouble on offense with rookie Mitch Trubiskey the Bears have scored 20 or more points just twice in nine games. Still, Stafford will give you a chance as he has 17 interceptions to go with his 22 TD passes. Ground control and defense. Take CHICAGO!

New England at Denver 8:30 ET
Broncos (+) over Patriots- How, awful were the Broncos last week, I mean really, that makes four straight losses where they weren't even competitive starting with losing to the pitiful Giants at home. There is really very little for me to say about New England, Tom Brady...blah blah blah, Bellichick Blah Blah Blah. I know. This is one of those I can't explain games, because one team is so much better then the other. Brock Osweiler has come full circle getting the starting nod will help because Siemian was God-awful. New England will control the ball and the scoreboard and see to it that Denver is always in striking distance. Take the BRONCOS!

New York Jets at Tampa Bay 1:00 ET
Buccaneers (+) over Jets- All summer day after day after day I hear who bad the Jets were...'they might not win a game', the Browns and Niners have improved but not the Jets. Well, they are not going to the Super Bowl but New York has won four games and are favored here in their 10th. But, the storyline here is not that they are favored on the road but that their former quarterback who holds the New York Jets franchise record touchdown passes 31 Ryan Fitzpatrick is playing for Tampa Bay as they are lucky enough to have 'Shameless' Winston is sidelined. Oddly enough, Josh McCown as a Tampa Bay QB went 1-10 as a starter. Take TAMPA BAY!

Seattle at Arizona 8:25 ET
Cardinals (+) over Seahawks- I'm really not to 'high' on either of these teams except that without any doubt the Seahawks have the better quarterback in Russell Wilson. Drew Stanton the 33-year old veteran will start for Arizona and he has stepped in to 'cover' for Palmer before. As bad as I believe the Cardinals are they actually have 'life' with Adrian Peterson gaining yards in chunks and the fact that they play tough in Division games going 6-1-1 ATS in their last eight against NFC West rivals. Seahawks shot themselves in the foot leading the NFL in penalties having committed 41 in the past three games. Note the underdog is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings. Take ARIZONA!

Detroit at Green Bay 8:30 ET
Packers (+) over Lions- Both these clubs were off to quick starts but are on losing streaks as the Lions have dropped their last three and Green Bay without Aaron Rogers have lost their last two. In week 17 last season the Packers went onto Detroit and took the NFC Central away from the Lions with a 31-24 win as a 3.5-point favorite. This time around the Lions are favored at Green Bay and in this contest and even though the Packers will be playing Brett Hundley at quarterback have had an extra week to prepare. Add that the Lions are just 1-5 in their last six strips to Green Bay. Take the PACKERS!

Oakland at Miami 8:30 ET
Dolphins (+) over Raiders- Oh boy is this going to be fun. Miami head coach Adam Gase decided the best way to improve the NFL's worst offense which is last in points scored 13.1 and yards per game with 252 is to trade your star running back. Gone is Jay Ajayi but we anxiously welcome the return of Jay Cutler. Oakland on the other hand has dropped five of their last six games and are the only NFL team without and interception. Although I am sure with Cutler throwing the way he does they will get at least one Sunday. They may get that interception but it won't matter as Miami has a history of beating the Raiders going 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings and note that the underdog is 5-2 ATS in the last seven. Take MIAMI!

L.A. Rams at New York Giants 1:00 ET
Giants (+) over Rams- The questions here is, 'Can or will a team play hard for themselves or each other when they have no respect for their coach?' No less then four New York Giants players failed to return to practice the first day back after they team had a bye week and were given six days off. Head coach Ben McAdoo who has had to fine and suspend one player already for leaving the field and returning to the locker room while the game was still being played, (he had been benched) fined all four players with one getting suspended for Sunday's game because he didn't even bother to call the team, he was a no phone, no show. New York has actually played good run defense and that will spell the difference Sunday. The Giants are 0-3 at home while the Rams are 3-0 on the road while New York is 8-0 ATS in the last eight meetings...shit happens! Take the NEW YORK GIANTS!

Buffalo at New York Jets 8:25 ET
Jets (+) over Bills- The Buffalo Bills (5-2) have a chance to move into a first place tie with New England with a win tonight for the first time since 1995. The Bills have done it for the most part on defense where they lead the NFL in turnover ratio with a plus-14. The Jets have dropped three straight after holding the AFC East lead themselves before returning to form. Buffalo defeated the Jets in the season opener 20-12 but are favored for the first time on the road and the underdog is 4-1 ATS in this series. Take NEW YORK JETS!

Pittsburgh at Detroit 8:30 ET
Lions (+) over Steelers- Three weeks ago the talk was that Pittsburgh was done and 'Big Ben' should hang-up his cleats. Well, the Steelers currently own a two-game lead in the AFC Central and now they trouble are off-field matters where great players can't get on the field which Mike Tomlin has deemed a 'distraction.' Detroit may have the highest paid quarterback in the NFL but they also own a defense that has forced 14 turnovers including nine interceptions. The Lions have had an extra week after their 52-38 loss at New Orleans which gave Stafford time to heal a sprained ankle. Take DETROIT!

Dallas at Washington 4:25 ET
Redskins (+) over Cowboys- The health of the Redskins is a major concern here if you are looking to back Washington who lost three offensive linemen and injured a fourth in their loss to Philadelphia Monday night. They have signed a lineman who was released by the Ravens on Monday. Dallas is fresh off their 40-10 romp over San Francisco which can hardly be considered a test of any sort. The Cowboys lost their field goal kicker and that is always problematic for any club. The Cowboys have won six of the last eight meetings but also have issues with Elliott's court appearance on Monday. Note: The underdog is 25-9 ATS in the last 34 meetings. The best goes on...Take WASHINGTON!

Atlanta at New York Jets 1:00 ET
Jets (+) over Falcons- Don't be afraid! I know we all expect Atlanta to put it together at some time and what could be better then playing the Jets. The thing is I don't think it matters who they play. The Falcons may be suffering from the worst post Super Bowl hangover in NFL history. I know there are plenty of teams that didn't get back to the playoffs after the 'Big Game' but this Falcons team just doesn't pass the eye test...they don't look good at all. They have three losses all to AFC East teams losing to Miami, Buffalo and New England and now face the Jets who blew a 14-point fourth quarter lead to the Dolphins last Sunday. This is more about the Falcons...take NEW YORK JETS!

Denver at L.A. Chargers 4:25 ET
Chargers over Broncos- 'Break-up the Chargers!' Los Angeles (I'm still having troubles with that) has won two straight after dropping their first fur of the season. Denver on the other hand has dropped 2-of-3 including a bashing by the previous winless NY Giants on Sunday night. The Broncos already have a win over the Chargers on opening Monday night but they surrendered the 'cover' as Phillip Rivers put up two late scores that just brought LA (+3.5) in under the wire is a 24-21 loss. Denver has won six of the last seven meetings but the Chargers have the more experienced quarterback and a fresh coach that believes LA could be 6-0. O like confidence. Take LA CHARGERS!

Kansas City at Oakland 8:25 ET
Raiders (+) over Chiefs- Both these clubs find themselves off of losses as Kansas City fell from the ranks of the undefeated (last NFL team to lose) losing to the Steelers 19-13 on Sunday while Oakland dropped their fourth straight after a quick start to the season and is now 2-4. Two of the better quarterbacks will face-off with Alex Smith emerging as an offensive leader the Chiefs would seem to have better balance then the Raiders who rely more on Derek Carr. Carr who played injured did not show much mobility and seemed tentative in his first start since his neck injury. Smith has had the best of the Raiders going 9-1 with 19 TD's and just four interceptions while Carr has lost five straight to Kansas City but has 14 TD passes in his last six home games. In a mild surprise...take OAKLAND!

Steelers (+) over Chiefs- Hey, what's going on here? The Steelers look like a battered and beaten club after their crushing loss to Jacksonville and now they travel to Kansas City to play the only undefeated (5-0) team in the NFL. The 'line' opened 4.5 against I expected it to rise as work of the internal problems the Steelers are facing and I have seen just the opposite as the line has moved down. Now, that either means that huge amounts of money has surfaced Pittsburgh or the 'inside men' know whats going on and expect the 'Men of Steel' to regroup and win. I trust the 'Inside men.' Take PITTSBURGH!

Green Bay at Minnesota 1:00 ET
Vikings (+) over Packers- Now, this one seems a bit 'off' to me as the ailing Vikings with no running back and an injured quarterback would be such a small underdog to Green Bay and Aaron Rogers. I am aware Sam Bradford most likely won't play and I think the Vikings are better off for it. Face it, a quarterback with mobility challenges is not a part of today's game (see Eli Manning) and Minnesota will be better with Casey Keenum who is more then capable. This one just doesn't look right...take MINNESOTA!

Green Bay at Dallas 4:25 ET
Cowboys(-) over Packers- Well, it looks to me like the faithful have lost their faith in the 2-2 Cowboys. Dallas was a beaten (outright) home favorite last Sunday as the LA Rams came to town gained over 400 yards and time of possession as well. Aaron Rogers is as good as he ever was passing for at least 300 yards in five of his last six games, unfortunately for him the pressure the Cowboys put on him will make him think that he has been 'hog-tied' as the Dallas defense raises to stuff the Packers. Remember the Cowboys did have an 11-point lead in the fourth quarter against the Rams until they started think about Green Bay coming to town. Take DALLAS!

Carolina at Detroit 1:00 ET
Panthers (+) over Lions- I am perplexed by a few things with this game the 'price' not withstanding. The perception from the public, the wise guys and supposed 'sharps' all interested in the same side of this one. Well, when that happens I throw out all stats and try to figure out why. I admit that the Lions are one replay and count-off away from being 4-0 both straight-up and ATS while Carolina is off an outright upset win over New England. But, 'Is there something I'm not aware of about this game', something the 'books' would know but not 'us.' With social media the way it is I don't think they can keep information away from any of 'us.' So, what I am saying is I will swim upstream in this one somehow, someway we will get there! Join me with CAROLINA!

Washington at Kansas City 8:30 ET
Redskins (+) over Chiefs- The Kansas City Chiefs are the lone remaining undefeated team ending Week 4 Monday night as they host Washington. The Chiefs offense has a 'new' look this season with the electrifying rookies Kareen Hunt who leads the NFL with 401 yards rushing (3 games) and has three 50-yard-plus touchdowns. The Redskins whopped the Raiders 27-10 last Sunday night as Kirk Cousins threw for 365 yards while winning Player of the Week award. The last time the Chiefs played on a Monday night the crushed New England 41-14 in 2014 but that won't help here. Take REDSKINS!

Oakland at Denver 4:25 WT
Raiders (+) over Broncos- Last season the Raiders appeared to have the AFC wrapped up and then Derek Carr went down and Oakland went into the tank losing out the final two weekends including the final Sunday at Denver and were dominated 24-6. It looked to me like the Raiders took last Sunday night off as they were never in it against Washington while Denver was laying down at Buffalo. (Bills AFC GOM Winner) Oakland has revenge on its mind and get the money here. Take OAKLAND!

New York Giants at Tampa Bay 1:00 ET
Buccaneers (-) over Giants- I am loving it! The entire pre-season everyone was touting the Giants to beat Dallas and run away with the NFC East...HA! Here they are 0-3 and truly caught up stream without a paddle, they have no running game (zero, nada, none) and their defense allows 153.3 yards per game. Eli Manning is immobile and is forced to rush his throws which have become increasingly inaccurate. Tampa Bay is off a lackluster performance at Minnesota where Winston threw three interceptions and they ran for just 26 yards. Look for a strong defensive effort from the Buccaneers as the Giants offense sputters again. Take TAMPA BAY!

Jets (+) over Jaguars- Don't get the idea that 'we' are taking New York because of any Jet-lag (please excuse that one) after their game in London last Sunday. Teams returning to the States (please stand) from England actually show a winning record the past nine games winning seven. Jacksonville is felling really good about themselves and it all revolves around the running game as Leonard Fournette has help give Blake some breathing room. New York is off their best defensive effort in nine years while holding Jay Ajayi to less then 30 yards. They will do it again to Fournette and they will record their fourth straight win over the Jaguars. Take the J-E-T-S!

Redskins (-) over Raiders- Oakland has been the darlings of the 'public' so far winning and getting the money in both their games against the Jets and Titans. Washington lost their home opener to Philadelphia and then went to Los Angeles and shocked the Rams. History is not on the Raiders side in this Sunday night encounter as they are 1-8 straight-up and 3-6 ATS against the NFC East including 0-3 straight-up and ATS after a win. Add that they are 0-7 ATS when entering a Sunday night game off two straight wins. Take the REDSKINS!
