The final week of the regular season, with a handful of games having play-off implications

Recommendations

New York Jets -3 at Evens Bet365 at the Buffalo Bills

Minnesota Vikings +3 at 21/20 Ladbrokes at the Green Bay Packers

Arizona Cardinals -4 at 10/11 Coral versus the Seattle Seahawks

New York Jets at Buffalo Bills

After beating the New England Patriots in overtime last weekend, the shock Pittsburgh Steelers loss in Baltimore the Jets have a simple equation for the last regular season weekend. Win at divisional rivals Buffalo, and win a wild card position for the play-offs. The Bills are injury hit and out of contention.

The Jets, reorganised in the front office and coaching staff in the off-season are a team built for the play-offs with a punishing defense and, in a major improvement over previous seasons real play-making ability in the offensive skill positions.

They should have too much for Buffalo, and are 3 point favourites on the point spread at Evens with Bet365

Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers

The NFC North, habitually won by the Packers in recent years, comes down to this game at Lambeau field this weekend. One team wins the division and the third seed for the NFC play offs, the other team settles for a wild-card. A few weeks ago the Packers went to Minnesota and won comfortably but since then they have really struggled. No more so than when taken apart by the impressive Arizona Cardinals last weekend. Despite the excellence of Aaron Rodgers the offesne has really struggled with poor offensive line protection, and inconsistent run game and receivers that struggle to seperate from defensive man coverage.

The Vikings have a great opportunity here, a much improved team after several strong drafts, to win the division though doing so in Lambeau in December is historically tough. However point spreads of +3, and we can get 21/20 with Ladbrokes, look interesting for a team on the rise against struggling hosts

Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals, so impressive when thrashing the Packers, have a change of securing the number one seed and home advantage for the play-offs by winning this final game if the Panthers, who lost their unbeaten record this past weekend, lose their final game. Seattle, who were on a great run in the second half of the season with seven wins out of eight, slipped up losing to the Rams last weekend, are secure in a play-off berth and are difficult opponents.

Arizona though are possibly the most complete team in the NFL with a high-pwered offense and strength front to back of the defense and at -4 on the point spread at 10/11 with Coral should be supported to carry on their form into the play-offs.
