Underdog Pick #1: Houston Texans (+125 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Cincinnati Bengals, Sunday, 1:00 ET: The Texans are probably going to lose eventually with QB TJ Yates calling the shots, but we just don’t know if that is going to happen this week or not. The Bengals are a tough team to read. They have lost five games this year, four of which have come against the Steelers, Ravens, and Niners. That being said, they have won seven games, none of which have really come against a team that is all that worthwhile. Cleveland, Buffalo, Jacksonville, Indy, Seattle, Tennessee, and Cleveland again? Yuck. The question is whether we think that Cincinnati is really a legit playoff contender that can play with contending playoff teams, or whether this is the case of a team that has just made a nice little run thanks to the fact that it has played a horrid schedule. We’ll take the latter and give it a shot with a team that has won six in a row with three different starting quarterbacks.

Underdog Pick #2: Chicago Bears (+160 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Denver Broncos, Sunday 4:15 ET: In our eyes, the Bears are the worst 7-5 team in the NFC. The problem is that we think that the Broncos are the worst 7-5 team in the AFC. After some of these recent wins, we notice that Joe Public is really starting to side with QB Tim Tebow even though as recently as a few weeks ago, everyone was on the bandwagon of the New York Jets against him right here at Sporting Goods Field. The Bears have a miserable offense with QB Caleb Hanie under center, but what they do have is a defense that ranks No. 8 in the game against the rush. Recently, the Broncos have played teams with terrible ground defenses… Case in point… Minnesota: 12th (but also has one of the worst rated overall defenses in the game), San Diego: 26th, New York: 15th, Chiefs: 25th, Raiders: 28th. Could that be the big time difference and the key to stopping Tebowmania? We’ll take our chances, especially in the first game in this stretch that Tebow and the Broncos are truly expected to win and win comfortably.

Underdog Pick #3: Carolina Panthers (+130 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Atlanta Falcons, Sunday 1:00 ET: The last time that these two teams met, the Panthers were up 17-14 going into the fourth quarter before the Falcons really turned on the jets and coasted to a two TD victory. QB Cam Newton came up with 237 passing yards and 47 rushing yards that day, but he also threw three picks. Sure, he has thrown 14 INTs this year, but he also has more than made up for it on the ground with his legs. 3,297 passing yards and 518 more on the ground with a total of 26 TDs is no accident to say the least, and against a Falcons team that just lost on the road to the Texans with a third string quarter, we aren’t so sure that the visitors have the potential to pull off victory. Carolina has slim playoff hopes, and we think that those hopes stay alive with a slender victory at the death on Sunday.
