As for the games, these are the top five favorites to bet this week.
Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons (-1)
The Carolina Panthers are in freefall and are now just playing out the string as losers of four straight games. Most recently, they lost to the Redskins after going into the game as 10-point favorites.
The Falcons have also struggled against the spread this year, but they just played a tight game against the Saints on Thanksgiving and have an extra three days to get ready for this one. The smart money is on the Falcons to prevail.
Washington Redskins at Green Bay Packers (-13.5)
The Redskins have shown a little life recently against some really bad teams. That has people thinking they are better than they actually are, and we’ll see that in spades when they travel to Green Bay to face a playoff-bound Packers team.
The Packers are 8-4 against the spread, one of the highest rates of any NFL team, and showed last week just how good they are in bad weather.
The weather will be bad again this Sunday, and that translates to a big Packers win.
Tennessee Titans (-2.5) at Oakland Raiders
Apart from a garbage score in the closing minutes last week, the Raiders have gone 10 quarters without scoring a meaningful touchdown. They’ve also lost two straight games by more than 30 points, so banking on a three-point loss to a Titans team that is squarely in the playoff hunt is a good bet.
Simply put, the Titans are the better team, the hotter team, and the team with the most to play for. Take the Titans and give the points.
San Francisco 49ers at New Orleans Saints (-2.5)
The Saints and Drew Brees are scoring points, and as good as the 49ers have been playing, points for them are harder to come by. This will be a great game between a pair of Super Bowl contenders, and possibly an NFC Championship preview, but for this one, we’re going with the home team.
New Orleans is 8-4 ATS this season, and it will make it 9-4 on Sunday.
Denver Broncos at Houston Texans (-7)
Fresh off their win over New England, the Texans are primed to make a run through December. The AFC South leaders struggle a bit on defense, but Deshaun Watson has played great, and the Broncos defense is banged up.
Denver is also starting rookie Drew Lock at quarterback, and that adds up to a big loss on the road. Take the Texans and give the points.
