The Dallas Cowboys find themselves in a very familiar spot late in the year. After a dominant run of form, America’s team has dropped two games against fellow contenders. To prove — or at least suggest — that Dallas is a team worth watching, the Cowboys have a solid statement game to snap the losing streak.
The Cowboys should have no problem putting up points against a Detroit team that has allowed 24+ points in six of its last seven games. That leaves a very small margin for error for the Lions, who could overlook this game after clinching the NFC North for the first time in franchise history.
When you add in Jared Goff’s underwhelming performances on the road — throwing six touchdowns to four interceptions in road matchups — the Cowboys should bounce back in this one. Dallas has allowed 30+ points in just three games all year long, making Detroit unlikely to keep up.
Take the favored team to cover and win.
Ah, the NFC South. Once the butt of every joke in the NFL… well, it still is. But the Buccaneers have rounded into terrific form this past month and have a chance to clinch the division behind a renewed Baker Mayfield.
The Bucs already demolished the Saints, 26-9, in October on the road. Now they carry reasonable odds to do so again outright at home. Tampa Bay is carrying a four-game winning streak into its most important matchup of the year, and unlike Detroit, the Bucs desperately need this win to stay atop the division.
New Orleans hasn’t looked convincing all year, with wins against the Giants, Panthers, Bears (with Tyson Bagent), and Colts in recent months adding to that argument. With All-Pro offensive tackle Ryan Ramcyzk and star wide receiver Chris Olave dealing with injury, it just seems unlikely that this team is prepared to go on the road and beat arguably the hottest team in the NFL.
The Saints also have only faced one team on the road that currently sits over .500. That would be the Los Angeles Rams (8-7), who defeated New Orleans in Week 16.
The Raiders defense has been something to watch under interim head coach Antonio Pierce. Not only has the team been winning games, but an oft-maligned defense has allowed 38 combined points over the last three weeks, 21 of which came in garbage time against the Chargers.
This unit has found new life and should make life difficult for a Colts team that hasn’t been all that impressive. Jonathan Taylor and Michael Pittman should suit up together, which could cause problems, but not enough to concern a bettor buying a few points to 47.5.
This bet goes both ways, as the Raiders defense has hidden how often the offense has struggled. The team was shut out against the Vikings three weeks ago and didn’t have a single passing yard after the first quarter of Week 16.
Expect this game to finish in the low 40s, too close to take the set over/under but comfortable enough to buy a few points on.
The Kansas City Chiefs need a win more than anyone in the NFL. From Patrick Mahomes getting upset with referees to Travis Kelce throwing his helmet, this is the most discombobulating fans have ever seen Kansas City in the Mahomes era.
An unconvincing win against the Patriots in Week 15 sits in between a loss to the Raiders and Bills, not to mention the Packers a week prior. Kansas City is legitimately at risk of choking the AFC West title away to Denver or even the Raiders.
The Chiefs must win, and frankly, I’m willing to bet on them one more time. It’s a rare sight to see Kansas City drop back-to-back home games, especially as favorites. The Bengals’ magic has worn off, as evidenced by Mason Rudolph carving them up ahead of Christmas Day.
If Patrick Mahomes loses back-to-back home games to Aidan O’Connell and Jake Browning, especially without Ja’Marr Chase, then that’ll be a wrap on myself as a bettor.
The Packers and the Vikings are two teams that can be very difficult to gauge in their current forms. At times Jordan Love looks like a world-beater, and other times he looks like a lost puppy. The same can be said of Nick Mullins and whoever the Vikings start at quarterback.
There are a lot of injuries involved here that could impact the line, from Jordan Addison to Jayden Reed to Christian Watson. Whether all or none will play remains to be seen, but two things are for sure. T.J. Hockenson is out, and Aaron Jones is in.
The Green Bay running back provided a spark in Week 16 that the Packers have sorely missed. Green Bay scored 30 or more points this past week for the first time since Week 1, a game where Jones had two touchdowns. With the Vikings possibly without everyone except for Justin Jefferson, Green Bay should stay in stride with their divisional rivals.
Can defensive coordinator Joe Barry fix what needs to be fixed? Probably not. But getting the Packers at plus odds against Nick Mullins without two of his three favorite targets is something worth chasing, especially if Green Bay can return Reed or Watson.
