Seattle Seahawks @ Dallas Cowboys  (Thurs. 7:15 p.m. on Amazon Prime Video)

  • Spread 

    • Dallas -9.0

  • Moneyline

    • Seahawks +339, Dallas -438

  • Total

    • 46.5

Quite an exciting match we have for TNF on Amazon Prime Video! The 6-5 Seattle Seahawks are coming into AT&T Stadium to take on a red hot 8-3 Dallas Cowboys, who are undefeated at home this season. Seattle will be looking to stay relevant in the NFC wild card race as the battle for positioning in the playoffs heats up! The Cowboys look to continue their winning streak and make it four in a row.

Here are the facts: Dallas is scoring an average 31.5 ppg to Seattle’s 20.8. Dak has been on fire leading Dallas on an average of 262.4 passing ypg, while Geno Smith hasn’t been far behind with 221.8 passing ypg. Dallas is ahead on ground attack with 115.3 ypg compared to Seattle’s 95.8. When you consider The Seahawks have given up 230.7 passing ypg and 22.6 ppg, while Dallas’ defense has played steller. By the numbers, this should be a sure fire victory for Dallas! The Cowboys just don’t lose at home and especially to teams who have a worse record. I do think Dallas handles this game, it will not be easy. Seattle will put up a fight and remain in this game the whole way through. 

My hot pick: over 47.5

Denver Broncos  @ Houston Texans (Sun. 12:00 p.m. on CBS)

  • Spread

    • Houston -3.5

  • Moneyline

    • Denver +157, Houston -188

  • Total

    • 47

This is a game I’m very much looking forward to watching! These two AFC teams are 6-5 and very much in the thick of the wild card race. After an absolutely dreadfull start, Denver is now on a five-game win streak with no sign of slowing down. Led by rookie QB sensation, C.J. Stroud and rookie head coach DeMeco Ryans, the Texans have had a complete turnaround of a franchise who were in the dark for the past few years. Russell Wilson has had an amazing revitalization over the past few weeks and looks to be in better form being responsible for 20 total TDs. Stroud is having an MVP caliber season as a rookie, responsible for 19 TDs and 3266 passing yds. You will want to be dialed into this game for its entirety as it is sure to be a close and invigorating one!

Hot pick: Denver +3.5

San Francisco 49ers @ Philadelphia Eagles  (Sun. 3:25 p.m. on FOX)

  • Spread

    • 49ers -3

  • Moneyline

    • Eagles +125, 49ers -148

  • Total

    • 46.5

I’m not sure what the oddsmakers were thinking with these numbers, but the 8-3 49ers are favored by three heading to the hostile environment that is “The Linc.” 10-1 Philadelphia will be fueled by the baffling odds and want to defend home turf as well as be the first team to secure a playoff berth. They are pretty evenly matched when it comes to the stats, with San Francisco having slightly better numbers all around. With superstars in just about every key position on either side, it’s hard to pick which way this will go, but I give the edge to the Eagles as I feel they have a more complete team with better athletes in certain positions, especially Jalen Hurts at QB. He is an absolute superstar, there’s no denying it. Brock Purdy on the other side is having an excellent season himself. Philadelphia is at home, it’s a tough place to play for anyone. The Eagles will keep their near perfect season alive and cement their spot in the postseason this Sunday. 

Hot pick: Eagles +3
