Behind Enemy Lines on The Final Week of the NFL Season

Yo, this is Nicky and I know it looks like straight forward week in the NFL as you gotta’ pound the teams with something to play for when their going up against a team headed for a pick in the first ten of the draft (ie; Pats vs. Bills), also fear the afternoon games as the team you place on could be DOA come kickoff (ie; Arizona Cardinals) but therein lie the bear traps so check the ice before you skate and let’s get to it. I know in the early games Carolina and New England look attractive and why would we even get involved in a ‘do-or-die” game like the Ravens v. Bengals, but the that’s one of the only games that will be playing true to form. True, the Bengals are in regardless and the Ravens need a win for a chance to defend their title so this screams take the points, but…. the Bengals are 7-0 ATS at home this season, and 8-2 ATS on turf, and still have a chance at home field if the Pats don’t handle their business against the Bills. So, yes the second half could be duress if the Pats get off to a 24-0 lead but don’t forget about what the Bills and that run defense did to the Fish who beat New England just the week before. Obviously that’s why I’m laying off the Pats -8, so take the Bengals -6.5 buy the hook and I’ll talk to you before the afternoon games. That’s the morning chowda’ I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!!
