Underdog Pick #1: Kansas City Chiefs (+265 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Chicago Bears, Sunday, 1:00 ET: The Bears have absolutely zero business laying -300 on the moneyline against anyone in the league right now with QB Caleb Hanie calling the shots. Their defense did everything that it could against the Raiders last week, but it still wasn’t enough. Save for a occasional deep ball to WR Johnny Knox, there wasn’t much for Hanie to write home about. The Kansas City defense has played well at times, and this could be a big time spot for this unit to shine against a basically one-dimensional Chicago offense. QB Kyle Orton, a former Bear, could have a lot to say about this game if QB Tyler Palko struggles, and we do think that one of these two men is going to put the Chiefs in a position to win this game.

Underdog Pick #2: Cleveland Browns (+240 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Baltimore Ravens, Sunday 1:00 ET: We don’t think that there is any middle ground whatsoever on Sunday for the Browns. They’re either going to win this game or get killed. There doesn’t seem to be much of a reason as to why we think Cleveland can win this game, but the truth of the matter is that the Ravens had no business losing to the Titans, Seahawks, or Jaguars on the road either. This is just a totally different team on the road than it is at home, and the Browns have the pass rush to make QB Joe Flacco uncomfortable in the pocket. If that becomes the case and Flacco is under constant pressure, the Baltimore offense will struggle mightily to the point that the Browns may even look like the better of these two teams. We don’t think that it’s exactly a 50/50 proposition, but we do think that the Ravens could be in some trouble if they don’t bring their ‘A Game’ on Sunday.

Underdog Pick #3: Washington Redskins (+110 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. New York Jets, Sunday 1:00 ET: Last week, WR Stevie Johnson mocked the Jets in the end zone, pretending to shoot himself in the leg like Plaxico Burress and then flying with jet wings only to come to a crash in the end zone. It was a dance that cost him $10K, but it might take on some real meaning this week when the Jets head to Landover. The Redskins are a significantly more competent team with QB Rex Grossman calling the shots than QB John Beck, and it is showing in wins and losses. New York has been a dreadful road team all season long, winning only at Buffalo a few weeks ago. Washington might be a comparable team to New York in the long run, and if Grossman stays away from Revis Island, he could pull off the upset and put the Jets’ playoff hopes in serious doubt.

Underdog Pick #4: New York Giants (+230 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Green Bay Packers, Sunday 4:15 ET: This is another one of these games that we think is going to be fairly cut and dry. The Giants could win this game outright, or they could get blown out of the water, but we just don’t see much in the middle happening. New York has been sliding quickly, and the danger is there to fall completely out of the playoff race this week with the wrong combination of results. QB Eli Manning knows what it is like to pull off upsets like this one… just ask the 2007 New England Patriots how they feel about Eli and the G-Men… It is clear that Green Bay is the best team in football this year, and it is probably rolling right through the NFC with no problems en route to the Super Bowl, but with emotions this high with a team that is incredibly talented like the Giants are, absolutely anything could happen.
