Last Week: 8-8, Locks 2-3
Season 125-113-2, Locks 39-40-1
Cincinnati +5.5 v. Kansas City - I like the home dogs in this game. The Bengals have slightly more to play for (clinching the division) than the Chiefs who are playing to clinch the AFC's No. 1 seed. The Bengals obviously could cover while losing 28-23 or 34.31. Denver +5.5 @ LA Chargers - Points tend to come at a premium in games involving the defensive-minded Broncos. It may not result in a Denver win but a relatively low scoring affair. Houston +12.5 @ San Francisco - I like most of the teams covering huge spreads this week, a list that includes Buffalo, New England and Tampa Bay. This will be the exception as I am not sold on a Niners blowout with Trey Lance likely making just his second career start.
Dallas -5.5 v. Arizona - I picked against the Cardinals last week and will do so again. It used to be the Cowboys known as the team that swoons in December and January. Detroit +7 @ Seattle - Several teams seem to be packing it in for the season, Detroit is an exception and continue to be a good play against the number.
