Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-11, -550)
Opponent: at Atlanta Falcons
The Buccaneers are using a two-game win streak and, in the event you’re into revisionist historical past, earned a one-sided 48-25 victory over the Falcons earlier this season. Tom Brady often performs his greatest soccer when the calendar turns to December, too.

Indianapolis Colts (-9, -425)
Opponent: at Houston Texans
We’ve included one other divisional matchup, nevertheless it options two groups getting in reverse instructions. Indianapolis, which beat the Texans 31-3 in mid-October, is healthier than its report signifies and has continued to trip the league’s main rusher in Jonathan Taylor.

Miami Dolphins (-3, -155)
Opponent: vs. New York Giants
The Dolphins have 4 straight wins after beating three unhealthy opponents. The Giants definitely match the invoice as a nasty opponent and may very well be in much more hassle with quarterback Daniel Jones not anticipated to play, however we simply don’t really feel the necessity to use the Dolphins. If you happen to do have that urge, If you happen to can wait to make use of the Fins, Miami returns from a Week 14 bye to play the Jets at residence in Week 15.

Minnesota Vikings (-7, -300)
Opponent: at Detroit Lions
The Lions proceed to maintain it shut and we simply can’t assist however assume Detroit goes to earn a win this season. And on the opposite sideline, the Vikings have been up-and-down all season — they beat the Lions by simply two factors at residence — so we’re going to should fade Minnesota.
