New England Patriots vs Miami Dolphins

12/9 @ 1:00pm ET

The Dolphins (+7.5) will host the Patriots (-7.5) this Sunday in an AFC East matchup. The Patriots had a good win last week vs the Vikings and they also returned Rex Burkhead which should open things up even more in the running game and keep everybody fresh. Their defense has also been playing better not allowing more than 17 points in 3 of their last 4 games. For the Dolphins they picked up a win last week vs Buffalo but they only find themselves at .500 for the season. Their offense seems to be limited with or without Ryan Tannehill and that could become a problem vs this Patriots defense. With that being said our lineups.com bet predictor likes the under of 47.5 point in this game to hit and believes it has a 72% chance of doing so.

NE vs MIA O:U

Baltimore Ravens vs Kansas City Chiefs

12/9 @ 1:00pm ET

The Ravens (+6.5) will be on the road to take on one of the best teams in the NFL, the Chiefs (-6.5). This is an interesting game because early this week it feels like the Ravens are the trendy underdog pick in this matchup with their tough defense and ability to run the football. These things are true but the Ravens haven’t seen an offense as potent as the Chiefs all season. With Lamar Jackson’s currently limited throwing ability it is tough to see the Ravens being able to keep up in this matchup. Which is why our bet predictor likes the Chiefs -6.5 in this contest which is sure to be a good one still.

Indianapolis Colts vs Houston Texans

12/9 @ 1:00pm ET

The Colts (+4.5) will be looking to bounce back big time vs the Texans (-4.5) this Sunday on the road after a terrible showing last week vs Jacksonville. Indy was shutout in a 0-6 loss. On the other side the Texans have continued to roll and have shown no signs of slowing down but it is important to note that their schedule hasn’t been the toughest during this stretch with games vs Cleveland, Miami, Jacksonville, Buffalo among others. The Texans won this matchup last time by a score of 37-34 but the Colts have played Houston well on the road going 4-1 SU in their last 5 road games vs them. With that being said our lineups predictor slightly favors the Colts plus the 4.5 points in Houston this Sunday.

New Orleans Saints vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

12/9 @ 1:00pm ET

The Saints (-8) will visit the Buccaneers (+8) this week as big road favorites. This is even after New Orleans folded on national TV vs the Cowboys last Thursday night. They were unable to get anything going and were held to a season low 10 points on the day. On the bright side their defense stepped up and only allowed 13 points. On the other side the Bucs have won 2 straight and seem to be playing well now with Jameis Winston at the helm. But, with the under hitting in 4 of the last 5 Tampa home games and also in 4 of the last 5 Saints road games are lineups.com bet predictor is sticking with the trend by picking the under 56 points this Sunday.

NO vs TB O:U

Cincinnati Bengals vs Los Angeles Chargers

12/9 @ 3:05pm ET

The Chargers (-14) will get to head back home and take on the Bengals (+14) after a superb come from behind victory vs the Steelers on Sunday night. This was a showcase game for them and as you can tell by the number this week they are very well respected. However, this is a very interesting situation for LA will their next game being Thursday night vs the Chiefs this game vs Cincy could be a classic look ahead spot. On top of that the Bengals have covered 4 of their last 5 vs the Philip Rivers led Chargers team. The Bengals should be able to move the ball on the ground vs Los Angeles which is where they struggle but assuming Driskel can throw 1 TD pass I think they will be able to cover the 14. Our lineups.com bet predictor thinks so also giving the Bengals a 71% chance to cover the 14 points.
