San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks

This is the biggest points spread of the week, Seattle 12.5 point favourites in an NFC West divisional game against the 49ers, both currently with losing records, Seahawks 4-5 49ers 3-6. Consistently all season i have wanted to be against the 49ers who lost a lot of talent in the off-season on and off the field and are in the very early stages of a rebuilding process. The Seahawsk beat them 20-3 earlier in the season

However the Seahawks are a shadow of their recent successful teams, with problems on the offensive line causing severe issues, plus the injury to Marshawn Lynch to deal with. Whilst I would expect the Seahawks to win here, getting nearly a two touchdown start in a divisional game is very tempting in what might be a low scoring game.

Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots

The Patriots maintained their unbeaten record in a thriller against the New York Giants last weekend with a last gasp field goal and now have to return to an AFC East divisional game against the 5-4 Bills who are battling to make the play-offs via a wild card. Despite the brilliance of the Patriots coaching, Brady and Gronkowski it is becoming harder and harder for the Patriots to continue their blistering form of earlier in the season. Two key offensive players Edelman and Lewis are out and the offensive line is severely injury hit.

The Bills have a strong defense, both up front and in the secondary and running abck LeSean McCoy is returning to fitness and form. I think this could be a close game, albeit one where it would be a big surprise if the Bills actually won, but we are getting them with a seven point start on the point spreads.

Oakland Raiders at Detroit Lions

The Lions produced one of the upsets of the season last weekend, winning only their second game of the year in beating the Packers away, a result due as much to the dysfunction of the home team as the performance of the away team. They now play one of the NFL’s fast imrpoving teams. The Raiders have a 4-5 record but unfused with top young talent in recent drafts are developing quickly, no more so than at quarterback where Derek Carr keeps them competitive in every game.

Detriots problems, a porous offensive line, lack of running game and poor defense persist and I expect the Raiders to win here. They are the better team.
