St. Louis Rams vs. Miami Dolphins Pick

Two teams that are surprisingly up and coming this year are going to meet in South Beach for some NFL betting action this week, as the St. Louis Rams try to tackle the Miami Dolphins.

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.

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.

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.
