1. Green Bay Packers (+5) vs. Atl – It’s going to be a high scoring affair. But Atlanta giving up five to a team that is peaking and has the best QB in football? That’s a lot to me. Expect the Packers to go toe to toe with the Falcons and do enough defensively to keep this within five… and maybe even pull off the upset (+185 on Money Line).
2. Pittsburgh Steelers (+6) vs. NE – This Patriots’ team is very good, but not as good as the Super Bowl unit a few year’s back. They beat the Steelers earlier in the year but QB Ben Roethlisberger didn’t play in that one and TE Rob Gronkowski did. That’s a big change for this contest. We still expect the Patriots to win, but it’s no lock and it won’t by by six.
