We’re down to the nitty gritty now and betting the final week of the season is always dicey. Lines are going up and coming down daily so it’s going to be extremely important to your due diligence by reading everything available from team websites and team pages. Motivation will be key here much as we saw last week in the late games after the results of the early games were known. It’s going to be EXTREMELY important to shop and get the best number so it is equally important to have several outs. You won’t find better than the sponsors at Sportsbetting3 so look around and get the most bang for your buck …. and by the way, hope everyone has a very Happy New Year.
Tennessee at Houston Under 40.5
The Texans are locked into the #3 seed so they actually have little reason to play. That said, they don’t want to go into the playoffs on three straight losses and this would be as good a place as any to help TJ Yates get some of his confidence and swagger back. Houston crushed the Titans 41-7 back in Week Seven but that was at the height of the Houston roll and with Matt Schaub. Both teams will undoubtedly ty and run the ball with CJ2K and the Foster/Tate dynamic duo. The Under is 8-0-1 in the Titans L9 and 4-1 in the Texans L5. Points figure to be at a premium here so taking the LOW road looks to be a solid choice.
Jacksonville -4 over Indianapolis
Indianapolis has won two straight as window dressing and you can bet your bottom dollar that if there was ever a team to lay down in the NFL, it will be the Colts. They’ve done it throughout their history and there is no way they will do anything to bypass Andrew Luck. The Jags won the first go around 17-3 but that was with Cutis Painter at the controls. Orlovsky has been a huge step up and the sole reason that the Colts have covered four straight. Jacksonville is just 1-3 as a favorite this year but have played hard for the interim, especially vs their own kind. Indy is their own kind. Lots of Maurice Jones Drew will open up the short passing game which is all the rook Blaine Gabbert is capable of after a who season. Jags send their few home faithful happy with a 23-10 type of win.
NY Jets -1.5 Over Miami
Rex had to eat some humble pie after Gang Green was dominated by the G-Men in the battle of the Meadowlands. Now all of New York is questioning whether the plug should be pulled on Mark Sanchez and if he is in fact “The Sanchise”.
The Flyboys are still in but have to take care of their business and get help. The key to this game is can the Jets score. The Dolphins are 5-3 in their L8 after the 0-7 start, allowing just 14.3 ppg during that run. The Jets are 0-6 when they score less than 21 and again, the Jets have to get onto the endzone. This is a spot (until last week) that the Jets have thrived on in the past, even with Sanchez. The Jets go first so they can go out and win and then sit around and watch the Bengals and Ravens decide their fate. Jets do their part, lets call it 27-20.
Seattle at Arizona Under 41
Both teams were eliminated last week after positive runs. The Seahawks are 5-2 in their L7, the Cards are 6-2 in their L8 and have won four straight home games but … Seattle is 9-1-1 ATS over L11 including straight up wins at St Louis and Chicago so not real interested in the side. Seattle won 13-10 in Northwest so the number looks about right. With that all said, expect to see lots or Lynch and Beanie Wells between the tackles in your typical division street fight. There are no playoffs on the line here but both coaches are not the type to try not to win. May not be reprise of round one but there does figure to be plenty of play between the 20s and low scoring. Play the Under.
