Skolman: 

GB +7 - Detroit hasn’t earned the right to be 7 point favorites over anyone.

CAR +4 - I don’t think either team is going very far...I’ll take the 4 in what should be a good battle.

CLE +10.5 - What the heck, I’ll go down with the Browns for the last time this year.

SF (-3.0) - Jimmy G and friends motivated to finish strong vs the Rams who say they don’t care but I think they do...you’d rather go to Philly than Min.

OAK +8.0 - Division opponent with a change to knock your rival out...I’ll take 8 points there.

Savage: 

Chiefs +3.5 (best bet) - The Chiefs have had a couple "meaningless" week 17 games under Andy Reid and have covered or won outright. The Broncos do not deserve to be more than a 3 point favorite over anyone, especially with Paxton Lynch starting. 

 

Giants +3 - Washington handled two bad teams in a row playing at home. Now they have to go on the road, where they're only 2-5 for the season, for a meaningless final game. Washington didn't exactly dominate the Giants in their Thanksgiving matchup, so I think this game ends up close.

 

Packers +7 - Detroit isn't that good to begin with and now this game doesn't mean anything to them. Stafford has a decent streak of games started going (remember when he used to be injury prone?) so he's going to want to start here, but I wouldn't be surprised if Rudock plays the 2nd half.

 

Raiders +8 - This is a home game for the Chargers but there may end up being more Raiders fans in the crowd. I don't understand how the Chargers can be this big of a favorite. The Raiders are bad, but they generally only get blown out when their opponent can run the ball on them, something the Chargers aren't great at.

 

Patriots -15.5 - There are whispers of Hackenberg playing, so why not?

 

Katz: 

SF -3.5 Best Bet 

JAX +3.5 

BUF -3.0 

KC +3.5 

DAL -3.0

**The Computer**

CHI at MIN -12.0 (point spread discrepancy 8.3) *BEST BET

The Computer says: Vikings by 20.3

 

SF at LAR +3.0 (point spread discrepancy 5.8)

The Computer says: 49ers by 8.8

 

NO at TB +7.0 (point spread discrepancy 5.5)

The Computer says: Saints by 12.5

BUF at MIA +3.0 (point spread discrepancy 4.5)

The Computer says: Bills by 7.0

 

CLE at PIT -10.5 (point spread discrepancy 3.9)

The Computer says: Steelers by 6.6

RC: MIN, SF, NO, BUF, KC

COLIN: Smartly does not make B5 picks in Week 17
