San Francisco (-8) at Oakland
Tough game to pick. One team looks to be in turmoil and every rumor has their coach fired already, while the other team follows up their lone win with a 52-0 defeat to St. Louis. This isn’t much of a travel for the 49ers and their fans should show up in Oakland (hopefully they do it safely) and carry their team to a MUST-WIN game.
THE PICK: 49ers (-8)
Seattle at Philadelphia (-1)
Two good defenses. Two good running games. Two good teams. This game is big for playoff seeding in the NFC. Seattle can smell Arizona struggling and the NFC West division within reach. Does Philadelphia with 10 days off let down a bit after their impressive win in Dallas on Thanksgiving night?
THE PICK: Seahawks (-1)
New England (-3.5) at San Diego
New England is so good off a loss, especially on prime time. After Losing to GB last week they flew right to San Diego and have been there all week. Strictly business. San Diego had to fly back west after a monumental come-from-behind win over Baltimore on the East Coast last week. Revis and Browner should shut down Floyd and Allen. We’ll bet on Brady over Rivers.
THE PICK: Patriots (-3.5)
Atlanta at Green Bay (-12)
Aaron Rodgers. Aaron Rodgers. Aaron Rodgers. He’s pretty good. 20 touchdowns and zero interceptions at Lambeau this year. They are playing at another level when it comes to beating teams in Green Bay. Atlanta is a dome team from the safe, we just don’t see them hanging with the Packers in this one.
THE PICK: Packers (-12)
BEST OF LUCK!
