Minnesota needed a victory in its season finale against the Packers just to get into the playoffs and it came up big in a 37-34 shootout as a three-point underdog at home. It will now have to do it again this week as an underdog on the road. The Vikings finished the regular season 10-6 after winning just three games in 2011 so anything is possible on a team that does not know the word quit.
Cincinnati finds itself in the exact same position as it was last season; taking a trip to Houston in the Wildcard Round of the playoffs. Last year the Bengals lost 31-10 as four-point underdogs but are hoping for a different result this time around. They bring some solid momentum into Saturday’s matchup with a 7-1 record both straight-up and against the spread over the second half of the season. Cincinnati finished the year 10-6 SU (9-6-1 ATS) and the total stayed UNDER in 10 of the 16 games.

They are 4-3 SU (5-2 ATS) on the road and the total has now gone OVER in four of their last five games.
The Rams are out of playoff contention at 7-7-1 straight-up but they can still play a major role in the final postseason picture with a win on Sunday. Last week they beat Tampa Bay 28-13 as three-point underdogs on the road to improve to 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games and to 10-5 ATS overall. St. Louis is 3-3-1 SU on the road this season but a very profitable 6-1 ATS. The total has stayed UNDER in three of its last four games.
It has not always been pretty, but Baltimore finally managed to clinch the AFC North Division title last Sunday with a solid 33-14 victory over the New York Giants as a one-point home underdog. The Ravens are now 10-5 straight-up on the year and 6-8-1 against the spread. They have gone 4-3 SU (3-3-1 ATS) on the road this season and the total has gone OVER in three of their last four games overall.
It has been quite a ride for Georgia Tech this season with a 2-4 straight-up record to start the year and a three-game winning streak followed by two losses to close it out.

They went 8-5 against the spread with the total staying UNDER in their last three games.
Dallas will be coming off an extended Holiday break after getting blown-out 129-91 by San Antonio this past Sunday as an 11-point road underdog.

The total has gone OVER in four of their last five outings.
The Beavers had their chances this season with a 6-0 straight-up start, but a 3-3 record down the stretch including losses to Stanford and Oregon kept them in a mid-level bowl. Oregon State finished the season 9-3 SU and 8-4 against the spread. The total went OVER in its final four games with a posted line.
The Scarlet Knights had the Big East title and automatic BCS Bowl Series bid firmly in their grasp but season-ending losses to both Pittsburgh and Louisville ended those dreams. They finished tied for the title at 5-2 straight-up and 9-3 SU overall. Rutgers went 7-5 against the spread and the total stayed UNDER in six of its final eight games.
Many people believe that the 49ers are the best team in the NFL especially after Monday night’s thrilling 41-34 victory over New England as a four-point road underdog. The win pushed its overall record to 10-3-1 straight-up (9-5 against the spread) and locked-up a playoff berth. However, the 49ers have yet to win the NFC West heading into this matchup against their division rivals.
