Minnesota @ Green Bay – (Sun 12:30pm)
The return of Rodgers wasn’t enough to keep the Packers playoff hopes alive with the Vikings clinching the division thanks to a crushing win over the Bengals. With the season over Rodgers will sit and it throws the betting lines right out for this one. This Minnesota side is the real deal and a genuine Super Bowl contender. They have won 3 of their last 4 against the Packers including the last 2 at Lambeau Field. The Wolf was hoping Rodgers would suit up as he likes the Vikings regardless – it just means they have a bigger line to cover. They allow just 17.3ppg this season and The Wolf says Green Bay will not be getting more than 13.
Best: Minnesota -9 ($1.91)

Atlanta @ New Orleans – (Mon 5:00am)
Just a single win separates the Saints, Panthers and Falcons in the NFC South making this a winner takes all affair. The Falcons have somehow won 5 of their last 7 despite playing some very ordinary football. Matt Ryan has 18 touchdowns to 11 interceptions this season compared to 38/7 a year ago when he was the MVP. The running back duo of Freeman and Coleman have not been as effective this time around but Freeman is coming off his best game of the season – 194 scrimmage yards and a TD. Their reign as the best running duo has been taken over by their opponents in this one – Ingram and Kamara. The latter has lit up the NFL this season and the pair have combined for 2,756 yards of offence and 23 TD’s. This one will be won on the ground and The Wolf cannot get enough on the Under.
Best: Under 52.5 points ($1.91)

Seattle @ Dallas – (Mon 8:25am)
The Seahawks were embarrassed on their own turf last week and The Wolf cannot see how they can turn it around against a Dallas side that has allowed just 14ppg in it’s last 3. The Cowboys have really tightened the screws on the defensive end and the Under is 6-1 in their last 7 as a result. Despite all of Russell Wilson’s efforts he was sacked 7 times but the Rams and was held to a season low 142 passing yards. He has now been sacked multiple times in 7 of his last 8 and the pressure will again take it’s toll. With Zeke set to return the Cowboys will run the Seahawks off their feet.
Best: Dallas -4.5 ($1.91)

Oakland @ Philadelphia – (Tue 12:30pm)
A season ago the Raiders had one of the most potent offenses in the NFL but this season they have lacked that firepower. They are averaging just 20.1ppg (22nd) which is more than 11ppg game less than the Eagles who rank second behind thew Rams. The Under is 5-0 in the Raiders last 5 and with Philly returning home after 3 road games we will see their defence tighten right up. Nick Foles was brilliant last week with 4 TD’s and there is speculation that the Eagles may rest him down the stretch and as soon as this week if the Packers beat the Vikings. That won’t be happening and the Eagles will push to lock up the no.1 seed in the NFC. They will do so on the back of an emphatic win.
Best: Philadelphia -9 ($1.91)

The Wolf’s Best Bets: 106-105-9
