Arizona Cardinals at Seattle Seahawks

The Cardinals, superbly coached, have a 9-1 winning record the ebst in the NFL and travel to divisional rivals the superbowl champion Seattle Seahawks in a crucial game for the Seahawks, who are in a real fight to make the playoffs this time round

Seattle, despite inconsistent form are up to 7 point favourites for this match on the point spreads. Their noted home advantage no doubt accoutns for some of this but it simply looks too high. Its a divisional game, Arizona have a punishing defense and, the running game of Marshawn Lynch aside, its tricky to see where Seattle are going to put up substantial points

Backing Arizona +7 at 20/23 with Betfair Sportsbook is the way to go here

St Louis Rams at San Diego Chargers

The Rams provided the upset of week 11 by beating the powerful Denver Broncos. They are probably only a couple of players away from being a very good team and their defense can keep them in a lot of games.

The Chargers are struggling with key injuries, notably to quarterback Phillip Rivers, and have been inconsistent this year but are five point favourites here at home

In what could be a very close game, i like the Rams +5 at 11/12 888Sport to at a minimum keep this close. Definitely a team going in the right direction

Miami Dolphins at Denver Broncos

The vast majority of people will expect the Broncos to bounce back from their loss in St Louis and win here and indeed they are over 7 point favourites to do so. It won’t be easy to win by more than a score though, the Dlphins have an excelelnt defense capable of putting pressure on quarterbacks and as St Louis showed, the Broncos offensive line is having some difficulties protecting Peyton Manning

On the other side of the ball Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill is much improved and he, in combination with the defensive effort, could keep this much closer than the market point spread suggests.

Miami +7.5 points 10/11 Skybet is an interesting bet this weekend
