Wed 12/5

Houston is the hottest team in the league. For some reason, Indianapolis keeps trying to establish a running game and the Colts have taken Andrew Luck out of his rhythm. Indianapolis got shut out last week and it won't get any easier in Houston against an elite defense. Deshaun Watson, DeAndre Hopkins and Lamar Miller are playing terrific football. Lay the points.

Wed 12/5

Whoever made the schedule is no friend of the Vikings. They play at New England, then cross country at Seattle? Kirk Cousins doesn't play that well against the good teams, Stefon Diggs isn't 100 percent and Seattle's defense is playing well. The Seahawks' running game has really set up their passing game. Russell Wilson has found a guy he can depend on downfield in Tyler Lockett, who has nine TDs. Lay the points.

Wed 12/5

This is my top play of the week. Dallas' defense is far better than the one Philly just saw vs. Washington, when the Eagles struggled in the red zone again. Amari Cooper has made a difference, Ezekiel Elliott is playing well and Philly is still missing its cornerbacks. Lay the points.

Wed 12/5

It's time to recognize how well Denver is playing. They've got a really good running back, the QB is playing decently, and San Francisco can't do anything. The 49ers won't be able to score against Denver's defense. Lay the points, even with the Emmanuel Sanders injury.

Carolina's defense is really bad right now. Baker Mayfield got confused against Houston, with the looks he got, but I don't think Carolina can do that. Cleveland's defense is very good. Plus the Panthers just lost their tight end, who's important. Play on the Browns.
