Underdog Pick #1: Jacksonville Jaguars (+280 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Tennessee Titans, Saturday, 1:00 ET: The Titans have really had it this year, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see them totally fall apart in this game. The Jaguars aren’t exactly the cream of the crop this year, but they have shown some sort of capability against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers two weeks ago. RB Maurice Jones-Drew is going to be a monster in this game, as the Titans really haven’t shown the ability to stop the run all that much. In the end, even though the season is on the line for Tennessee, we just don’t think that it has much confidence right now after a pair of very tough losses over the last two weeks.

Underdog Pick #2: Arizona Cardinals (+175 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Cincinnati Bengals, Saturday 1:00 ET: Again, here’s another team that we think has just packed it in this game. The Bengals looked good two weeks ago in the first three quarters against the Houston Texans, but now that we have watched Houston lose two straight games since that point against iffy teams, we aren’t so sure that we are that impressed. Arizona, unlike Jacksonville, has at least been playing some big time football and winning games over basically every team that it runs up against. The Cardinals need this game just as badly as the Bengals do, and the loser of this one is probably going to end up out of the playoffs. We’ve seen Cincinnati lose at home a few times before, and this might be no exception. We tend to think that the wrong team is favored in this game.

Underdog Pick #3: Minnesota Vikings (+250 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Washington Redskins, Saturday 1:00 ET: The Redskins pretty much won their Super Bowl last week when they went on the road and beat the New York Giants to damage their playoff hopes in a big time way. Though we have seen Washington play better football with QB Rex Grossman under center, we aren’t so sure that it should be laying a touchdown to anyone in the game. The Vikings continue to show some spunk, and though they aren’t winning a lot of games, they do have the potential. Their secondary is awful, which could be problematic, but QB Christian Ponder and RB Adrian Peterson have the skills to get the job done against a team that really isn’t all that great.

Underdog Pick #4: San Diego Chargers (+120 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Detroit Lions, Saturday 4:05 ET: This is the time of year that the Chargers are supposed to get the job done to find some way back into the playoff race. We don’t know how the team is going to react if it gets knocked out of the playoffs by virtue of a Denver Broncos win earlier in the day, but what we do know is that the Lions, if history has anything to say about this one, are going to choke. Detroit has really gotten lucky over the course of the last few weeks to stay alive in the playoff picture, and though we do have confidence in QB Matt Stafford and this offense, we just don’t think that the defense is going to stop a QB Philip Rivers led offense. Rivers has been fantastic over the course of the last few weeks, and we think that the Bolts are going to get the job done in this one regardless of what happens with the Broncos.
