Into the last two weeks of the regular season and the play-off line ups are well on the way to being determined

Recommendations

Washington Redskins +3 at Evens Bet365 at the Philadelphia Eagles

Arizona Cardinals -4 at 10/11 William Hill versus the Green Bay Packers

Cincinnati Bengals +3 at 21/20 Bet365 at the Denver Broncos

Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles

In what has been a disappointing NFC East the 7-7 Washington Redskins face a simple equation this weekend. Win this game, and win the division. Easier said than done because this is a divisional rivalry and the Eagles at 6-8 are still in contention despite last weekend’s heavy home loss to the Cardinals.

These are two flawed teams but in the under-estimated Kirk Cousins the Redskins have a quarterback that has kept them in contention all season alongside a much improved running game. The Eagles are inconsistent, with pockets of strong performance (notably Fletcher Cox and the defensive line) but probelsm at running back on and off the field and a very below par defensive secondary that has been routinely torched

I will take the Redskins with the points, +3 at Evens with Bet365, to win the division here

Green Bay Packers at Arizona Cardinals

These two teams are already guaranteed a play-off berth and the 12-2 Cardinals can secure the number two seed and a play-off bye with a victory here. They are undoubtedly one of the best teams in the NFL with a high powered offense complemented by one of the best play-making defenses in the league. T my mind they are in a different league to the Packers

The 10-4 Packers are a game ahead of the Minnesota Packers in the battle for the NFC North. They have overcoming injuries to key wide receivers and an offense that has at times spluttered through the season. It will need to be on top form to be competitive here.

The Cardinals are 4 point favourites at 10/11 William Hill, and i could see that being higher.

Cincinnati Bengals at Denver Broncos

Monday night football sees a heavyweight clash between two sides battling for play off seedings and byes and both, interestingly, with back-up quarterbacks at the helm. This is a crucial game for the Broncos who have lost two games in a row, including coughing up a big lead at Pittsburgh last weeekend, and are only a game ahead of the surging Chiefs in the AFC West. The Broncos have one of the best defenses in football but it is on offesne that they have problems and that will be tested again against a strong Bengals defense.

The Bengals have a wealth of offensive weapons but this match-up will be the big test for back up quarterback AJ McCarron. The Bengals are +3 at 21/20 with Bet365 which strikes me as an attractive price for such a good team inw hat should be a close low scoring match
