St. Louis Rams vs. Miami Dolphins Pick

Give St. Louis a heck of a lot of credit. It was able to take down the previously unbeaten Arizona Cardinals last week on Thursday Night Football, and now, it is one of the teams right in the middle of the pack for the NFC playoffs.

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Tennessee Titans Pick

Arch rivals from the AFC are going to meet in a crucial tilt of teams that are trying to get back in the AFC playoff picture. The Pittsburgh Steelers will go on the road to take on the Tennessee Titans.

The Steelers at least looked remotely healthy for a half of football or so in last week’s win over the Philadelphia Eagles. RB Rashard Mendenhall came back to the fold and gave some life to a running game that had been completed drab, while both LB James Harrison and S Troy Polamalu came back after missing games with various injuries.

Arizona Cardinals vs. St. Louis Rams Pick

NFC West rivals that are hoping to get into the playoffs this year are going to battle it out in a crucial tilt at the Edward Jones Dome for Thursday Night Football betting action this week, as the St. Louis Rams face the Arizona Cardinals.

Arizona’s defense had its first atrocious game last week, as the yardage just kept piling up against the Miami Dolphins. QB Ryan Tannehill, a rookie playing in just his fourth ever game, threw for over 400 yards, and the secondary just had no answers whatsoever.

Oakland Raiders vs. Denver Broncos Pick

Two of the most hated rivals in football betting action will meet on Sunday afternoon at Mile High, where the Denver Broncos will face off with the Oakland Raiders.

Oakland has had all sorts of success in this series over the course of the last few years, and all of it really spurns around the offense. Even though this is a team that has historically struggled quite a bit on the offensive side of the ball, and the Raiders have been through a ton of quarterbacks, they just keep scoring big time points against the Broncos.

Minnesota Vikings vs. Detroit Lions Pick

NFC North foes battle it out in what is becoming one of the most intriguing games of the week in NFL betting action, as the Detroit Lions will fight it out with the Minnesota Vikings.

Sure, we’re only a few games into the season, but the Vikings all of a sudden might find themselves in the thick of the playoff race, especially if they can figure out how to win this game. Taking QB Christian Ponder in the first round of the NFL Draft was considered a massive reach, but perhaps Minnesota knew what it was doing.
