Early Analysis on this Week’s NFL Lines

Tampa Bay @ St. Louis

When: Thursday, Dec. 17 at 8:25 PM ET
Odds: Pk
Analysis: 61 percent of the betting public already likes St. Louis to win and cash in as a Pick ‘Em, but still believe in Lovie Smith, Jameis Winston and the Buccaneers!

New York Jets @ Dallas

When: Saturday, Dec. 19 at 8:25 PM ET
Odds: Jets -3
Analysis: If the Jets don’t win this game by at least a touchdown, I’ll be absolutely stunned!

Chicago @ Minnesota

When: Sunday, Dec. 20 at 1:00 PM ET
Odds: Minnesota -5
Analysis: The Vikings are absolutely desperate – and the far better team defensively, even if they do average fewer points per game than Chicago.

Atlanta @ Jacksonville

When: Sunday, Dec. 20 at 1:00 PM ET
Odds: Jacksonville -3
Analysis: The Jags are playing some of the best football they’ve played in years while the Falcons have fallen completely apart in dropping their last six games. Believe it or not, but the Jags look good here!

Houston @ Indianapolis

When: Sunday, Dec. 20 at 1:00 PM ET
Odds: Off
Analysis: No line is out for this matchup, but after seeing both of these teams this past weekend, I say that’s a good thing!

Carolina @ NY Giants

Panthers-Huddle-NFL-Lines-compressor

When: Sunday, Dec. 20 at 1:00 PM ET
Odds: Off
Analysis: No odds are listed for this contest, but I’ve got to believe the defenseless Giants are in for a 10-point whipping at the very least, even at home!

Tennessee @ New England

When: Sunday, Dec. 20 at 1:00 PM ET
Odds: New England -13.5
Analysis: The Patriots are back on track and Titans’ rookie signal-caller Marcus Mariota is in for a long afternoon in this affair!

Buffalo @ Washington

When: Sunday, Dec. 20 at 1:00 PM ET
Odds: Buffalo -1
Analysis: The Skins play very well at home, but the Buffalo Bills are completely desperate and have the big edge at quarterback and running back in this contest!

Kansas City at Baltimore

When: Sunday, Dec. 20 at 1:00 PM ET
Odds: Kansas City -7.5
Analysis: The Chiefs have won seven straight games and Baltimore can’t score with pitiful Matt Schaub under center. You do the math!

Cleveland @ Seattle

When: Sunday, Dec. 20 at 4:05 PM ET
Odds: Seattle -14.5
Analysis: Johnny Manziel will be under center and he could help Cleveland keep the final score closer than expected…even after watching Russell Wilson become the first quarterback to post a perfect passer rating in four straight games.

Green Bay @ Oakland

Eddie-Lacy-Packers-vs-Cowboys-NFL-Lines-compressor

When: Sunday, Dec. 20 at 4:05 PM ET
Odds: Green Bay -3
Analysis: I know the Raiders got a great win over Denver this past weekend, but the Green Bay Packers are focused right now and running the rock nicely with Eddie Lacy to finally give Aaron Rodgers the balance he’s been in need of all season long!

Denver @ Pittsburgh

When: Sunday, Dec. 20 at 4:25 PM ET
Odds: Pittsburgh -5.5
Analysis: The Steelers are damn scary right now and should simply be able to outscore the offensively-challenged Broncos in this one!

Miami @ San Diego

When: Sunday, Dec. 20 at 4:25 PM ET
Odds: Off
Analysis: There’s no NFL line listed for this contest, but when one does come out, all I can say is I’m backing San Diego’s Philip Rivers over Miami’s Ryan Tannehill all day long!

Cincinnati @ San Francisco

When: Sunday, Dec. 20 at 4:25 PM ET
Odds: Cincinnati -4
Analysis: The Bengals may not have Andy Dalton under center in this one, but they’re so completely better than San Francisco in every phase that this contest could be virtually over by halftime.

Arizona @ Philadelphia

When: Sunday, Dec. 20 at 8:30 PM ET
Odds: Arizona -3.5
Analysis: The Eagles managed to squeak past Buffalo on Sunday, but the Arizona Cardinals are playing on a completely different level than the mediocre Birds right now, making the 3.5-point line a breeze!

Detroit @ New Orleans

When: Monday, Dec. 21 at 1:00 PM ET
Odds: New Orleans -3
Analysis: The Saints got a fantastic win over Tampa Bay on Sunday and they should be able to hold it down at home against the inconsistent Lions!
