    Game Preview:
    An Eagles victory earns them the NFC East division title AND the #1 seed heading into the playoffs — do you really need to know any more here? We all know how solid of a backup Gardner Minshew is, there are plenty of teams he could start for. In his first start of the season last week he nearly led Philly to a win against Dallas. They lost 40-34 but he threw for 355 yards and a pair of TDs with a 84.9 QB rating. The differences between the Cowboys and the Saints are massive — so I’m not concerned about the Eagles covering this spread. The Eagles are teasing the idea of Jalen Hurts coming back, they don’t need him to win this one, but I’d grab this number while you can.
    PICK: PHI -5.5

    San Francisco 49ers (11-4) @ Las Vegas Raiders (6-9)

    Time 4:05pm EST
    Favorite: SF -9.5
    Total: 42.5

    Key Injury Watch:
    SF: OUT: (WR) Deebo Samuel – QUESTIONABLE: (DL) Kerry Hyder, (CB) Ambry Thomas
    LV: OUT – (QB) Derek Carr

    Game Preview: 
    Derek Carr has started 91-consecutive game for the Raiders but that will come to an end today. It’s been a truly lost season for Las Vegas who hand the ball to Jarrett Stidham, the 4th round pick by the Patriots in the 2019 NFL Draft who let him go, and I wonder why? I have zero confidence in his ability to magically make the Raiders relevant and competitive against one of the NFL’s best teams in the 49ers. San Francisco has ripped off 8-straight wins with 6 of them being by double-digits. Look for another from them today!
    PICK: SF -9.5

    Pittsburgh Steelers (7-8) @ Baltimore Ravens (10-5)

    Key Injury Watch:
    PIT: QUESTIONABLE: (DE) Larry Ogunjob, (LB) Myles Jack
    BAL: OUT: (QB) Lamar Jackson, (S) Marcus Peters – QUESTIONABLE: (DE) Calais Campbell

    Game Preview: 
    The Ravens haven’t lost at home since October 2nd, and that was by just 2 points to the now 12-3 Buffalo Bills. Those Bills could do the Ravens a huge favor tomorrow night by beating the current AFC North leading Bengals, who Baltimore faces next week in a game that could decide the division title if they take care of business tonight against the Steelers. Tyler Huntley will make his 4th consecutive start and one already came on the road against Pittsburgh where he handed the ball off 42 times in the 16-14 win. The week before he completed 27 of 32 passes so he’s capable as a passer too but the Ravens will still look to focus on their run game heavily in this one — which is fine considering they lead the AFC in rushing yards per game with 166. This game won’t exactly be exciting to watch, but having action on the Ravens -2.5 should help!
    PICK: BAL -2.5
