NFL Week 14 Free Picks – Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans

Big game in the AFC South, as Houston goes for their 10th straight win and continues their push towards a top-2 seed for the AFC playoffs. The Texans are three games clear of the Colts, who had their 5-game winning streak snapped in a 6-0 loss last week at Jacksonville. Indy had been surging, and would be the no-brainer in NFL Week 14 free picks if they hadn’t been shut out by Jacksonville in a listless effort. Indianapolis trails Baltimore [...]

NFL Power Rankings Week 13 1. Los Angeles Rams (11-1 SU and 5-5-2 ATS) Todd Gurley pulling the "I'll just score this touchdown untouched in a few plays anyways" thing where he burned more time off the clock is the ultimate swagger move.

NFL Week 13 Free Picks – Where’s The Value on Sunday?

While Sunday afternoon’s early slate of games doesn't provide a true marquee matchup, there’s plenty for NFL fans to like.

Another NFC North squad, the Detroit Lions, host the 1-loss Rams in a game that [...]

Full Rundown of the Best NFL Week 12 Picks

The hunt for a playoff spot continues across the league as the Wild Card spots remain up for grabs. The Baltimore Ravens have a tenuous grip on the final spot in the AFC at 5-5 SU and are being hounded five other teams.
