New Orleans -8 NO -8

Philadelphia 14 @ New Orleans 20
1/13
PHI 14 @ NO 20
1/13
LOSS
Fri 1/11

Philadelphia returns to the Superdome a completely different team than the one that was blown out a few weeks ago. QB Nick Foles does make this offense a bit more efficient. Defensively, the inexperienced group of defensive backs is now playing well together, and are making plays. The only issue is that this is still the same Saints team that will have one addition than the previous matchup and that's WR Ted Ginn. It won't be another blowout, but the better team will take care of business.

Defensively, this is where I believe the Chargers have an advantage. They are multiple, they have depth and they can disrupt the pocket while also being able to effectively cover on the back end. The Patriots would have matched up better against Baltimore than Los Angeles. Philip Rivers could finally break through in this one.

5-3 IN LAST 8 LAC ATS PICKS | +175

Indianapolis 13 @ Kansas City 31

WIN
Fri 1/11

Strong defense versus strong offense. As great as the Colts have played recently, there is still something about their offense that gives you some cause for pause. My bet is that it's their running game that's still making folks hesitant to fully believe. With the added rest and additional game film, expect the improving Chiefs defense to have a key on what Indy wants to do offensively. Plus, it's hard to get stops consistently against Pat Mahomes and the KC offense.
