(Lines current as of January 10th)
Minnesota @ San Francisco(-7.0):
I didn’t think Minnesota could take care of the Saints in New Orleans, and I don’t think they can beat the Niners in San Fran. I was wrong last week, but I have more faith in the Niners than the Saints. They have a powerful run game and their pass game has improved by leaps and bounds. The addition of Emmanuel Sanders and the emergence of Deebo Samuel have made this passing game a great complement to their steamrolling run game. San Fran by 10.
Tennessee @ Baltimore(-10.0):
The only team I love watching more than Tennessee is Baltimore. I love watching teams with strong running games and this is definitely a battle of the best. Baltimore is much more of a complete team, but I’m not writing off the Titans. Mike Vrabel has shown that he has the ability to gameplay with the best. In the end, I think the Ravens are just too high-powered and are my pick to make the Super Bowl from the AFC.
Houston @ Kansas City(-10.0):
I’ll be honest, I haven’t seen a ton of Chiefs games this year. I did happen to watch the Texans against Josh Allen last week and that has shaken my confidence in them. I’m going with the Chiefs because there’s no way Mahomes will be stopped by this Texans defense. The Chiefs offense is too much to handle. The Texans only hope is that it comes down to time management, which we all know isn’t Andy Reid’s forté.
Seattle @ Green Bay(-4.5):
D.K. Metcalf was phenomenal against the Eagles secondary. I think that will continue against the Packers. It won’t be enough to counter what Aaron Jones is going to do. He’s going to be the X-Factor in this game. If the Seahawks can stop the Packers run game, they’ll have a chance. Jadeveon “Cheap Shot” Clowney will have to be a big part of that, but in my heart I want someone to rock him and no flag to be thrown. Packers by a touchdown.
