Green Bay Packers-1 @ Indianapolis Colts: Aaron Rodgers gets his number 2 weapon Allen Lazard back and has the chance to play in a dome where he has been exceptional in his career. Vegas thinks this game will be close and I trust Rodgers in that moment a lot more than Phil Rivers.
New England Patriots -2 @ Houston Texans: Last week proved that the Patriots can still hang and win against playoff caliber teams with a convincing win against the Ravens. The Texans do not have much to play for and Bill Belichick always beats his former coaches, as Romeo Crennel has taken the reigns in Houston. Give me the better coach and team in this one.
Tennessee Titans-6 @ Baltimore Ravens: We know what happened when these teams faced off against each other in the playoffs last season, and while a blowout like that would be surprising this is just way too many points. The Titans are the kings of comebacks and should cover 6 points one way or the other.
Minnesota Vikings -7 vs Dallas Cowboys. This Vikings defense should stiffle the anemic Cowboys relatively easily. The Cowboys are in full “tank” mode while the Vikings have a decent chance to fight for a playoff spot. Dalvin Cook has been on fire and the Cowboys rank last in rushing defense. Kirk Cousins has been finding his own stride with Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson, this one won’t be close.
Patel’s Parlay: Vikings Moneyline, Packers Moneyline, Chiefs moneyline, Dalvin Cook over 106.5 rushing yards
