Monday Night Football has given way to Saturday Night Football and the games on Thursday night are done. That means that the regular season is nearly done. The best part of this week? 12 of the 16 games have playoff implications. That makes good watching and it makes it harder to bet in Vegas because you get teams fighting for their lives.
Looking for some picks advice? Here are ours, against the spread in Vegas:
Minnesota Vikings at Houston Texans (-9): The Texans will lock down the number one seed, but they will have to battle Adrian Peterson. In the end, Peterson will keep them close. Take the points and the Vikings.
Washington Redskins (-7) at Philadelphia Eagles: RG3 is back, which means Washington wins. Not that anyone thought the Eagles can win. However, Philly will put up some fight. They will keep it close. Take the points.
San Diego Chargers at New York Jets (-3): How bad has it been for the Chargers when they are underdogs to a team led by Greg McElroy. This game screams don't touch it, but here don't expect McElroy to do anything. Take the points and the visitors.
