Green Bay Packers versus Detroit Lions

The Packers head into the season finale at 7-8, while the Lions are 8-7. Neither Detroit won the first meeting between the teams this season as a road favorite on November 6. They hold the edge on the Power Ranking Indicator, +19 to +15. They also are “burning hot” on the Team Strength Oscillator versus “average down” for the Packers. Both teams are in the top 10 in Team Volatility, and as a 7.5 point favorite, bodes well for the Lions. The Lions will win the last game of the season to secure a winning record.

Chicago Bears versus Minnesota Vikings

Everything is pointing towards an easy win for the Vikings. They are “burning hot” on the Team Strength Oscillator, while the Bears are -11.8 and “dead”. Minnesota has a huge +30 to +5 advantage on the Power Ranking Indicator and won the first game as a road favorite of October 9. A huge 11.5 point favorite, the Vikings will win and likely cover the spread.

Washington Redskins versus New York Giants

At the beginning of the season, many likely saw this game having playoff implications, but both teams just want to finish strong. At 7-8, the Redskins are a 3.5 road favorite and won the last meeting as home favorite on November 25. While neither team is impressive on the oscillators, the Redskins have a +12 to +1 advantage on the Power Ranking Indicator. Washington can go to .500 with a win, and likely will take this one as the Giants can’t start the off season soon enough.

Carolina Panthers versus Atlanta Falcons

A game with huge playoff implications, the Falcons need a win the secure the final NFC playoff spot. They are a 3.5 point favorite at home. Carolina holds slight edges in both the Power Ranking Indicator and Team Strength Oscillator and also won the first meeting as a home underdog on November 5. Both teams have something to play for, but Atlanta will be in desperation mode at home and will win in a tight game decided late.

Arizona Cardinals versus Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks need a win and a loss by Atlanta to secure a playoff berth. An 8 point home favorite, Seattle won the first meeting as a road underdog on November 9. Both teams are on a downward trend with the Cardinals at “ice cold down” and Seattle as “average down”. Seattle holds an edge on the Power Ranking Indicator and with the season on the line, will hold off the Cardinals, although might not cover.

Cincinnati Bengals versus Baltimore Ravens

The Bengals enter at 6-9 and try to spoil the playoff hopes of the 9-6 Ravens. Baltimore enters as a 9.5 point favorite and won the first meeting as a road underdog in September. The Ravens are +16 and climbing on the Power Ranking Indicator and “average up” on the Team Strength Oscillator. Cincinnati is “ice cold down” and +6. While the Bengals could maintain enthusiasm throughout if the game is close, they will be ready for the off season should Baltimore pull away. Look for the Ravens to win rather easily, earning their 10th victory.
