With five weeks of the end of the regular season, this is the time to step on the accelerator for post-season contenders. The divisions are practically defined, except for the West sector, where the Kansas City Chiefs lead the Los Angeles Chargers for a game, and the East of the NFC, where everyone seems to have a choice, except the New York Giants, while the North could squeeze in the last weeks.
The race for the wild cards is another story, in the AFC seven teams have real chances to take one of the two postseason passports, while in the National Conference, and there are six candidates.

Atlanta Falcons (4-7) vs Baltimore Ravens (6-6)
Lamar Jackson and the Ravens will try to continue their offensive evolution against the Falcons. The Atlanta running game will have to be compared to the 1.9 yards he has averaged by carry last week. Matt Ryan and Julio Jones lead the NFL as a passer and catcher, with 3 thousand 683 and thousand 305 yards, respectively. Jackson raced for 190 combined yards in his two starts, although he has battled with accuracy in his passes. The Baltimore defense is the best in the NFL, with 295.4 yards allowed per game.
- We suggest betting with Baltimore (1.95).
Cincinnati Bengals (5-6) vs. Denver Broncos (5-6)
The Broncos will try to continue the positive moment against the Bengals, who want to get back into the fight for the playoffs. Jeff Driskel will start his first game in place of Andy Dalton, who was placed on the injured reserve. The Cincinnati defense is the worst in the NFL, with 439.6 yards allowed per game. Philip Lindsey has 216 yards and three touchdowns in his last two games. Vonn Miller has 11 sacks of quarterback so far this season.
- We recommend Betting with the Bengals to cover the handicap of 4.5 units in favor (1.90).
Detroit Lions (4-7) vs. Los Angeles Rams (10-1)
With the first place in the Conference still in sight, the Rams visit the dangerous Lions. Despite being virtually eliminated from the postseason, Detroit has beaten the New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers and Carolina Panthers this season. Matthew Stafford adds 2 thousand 841 yards with 17 touchdowns, but also accumulates 10 interceptions. Todd Gurley is the second NFL running back, with 433 yards. The Los Angeles defense allows 25.6 units per game, 20th place in the NFL, but could receive Aqib Talib back.
- We suggest playing highs in totals, set at 55 units.
Houston Texans (8-3) vs. Cleveland Browns (4-6)
In order to fight for the first place in the AFC, the Texans are visited by the Browns. Houston set a franchise record with eight consecutive wins last Monday night. J.J. Watt and the Texans’ defense have 11 quarterback catches in their last two games. Cleveland has won both of its games since Hue Jackson’s game, and Baker Mayfield has responded with seven touchdowns, without an interception, in those two games. Nick Chubb has also raised his game, with 260 rushing yards and four touchdowns.
- Bet on Houston to cover the spread of six points against (1.95).
New England Patriots (8-3) vs Minnesota Vikings (6-4-1)
Two teams in need of victory to improve their postseason chances face off when the Patriots host the Vikings. New England have won seven of their last eight games and got back to Rob Gronkowski last week, who scored his first touchdown since Opening Week. When “Gronk”, Josh Gordon and Julian Edelman play, the “Pats” have a 4-0 record and averaged 33.3 points per game (4-3 and 24.9 are them). Adam Thielen is the second-best receiver in the NFL with 138 138 yards. The Minnesota defense is number three in the NFL, with 314.7 yards allowed per game.
- Bet with the Vikings to give the surprise (3.10).
