BALTIMORE RAVENS -6 vs. Atlanta Falcons (-110, Caesars)
The 9-5 Ravens aim to strengthen their playoff chances this week, as they face a 5-9 Falcons side that have failed to fire at times this year.
Lamar Jackson has been ruled out with a knee injury, but the Baltimore offense is left in the capable hands of Tyler Huntley this week.
Atlanta QB Desmond Ridder struggled in his first NFL start, only managing to complete 13 of his 26 attempts for 97 yards against the Saints last week.
That run of form will likely continue against a tough Ravens secondary, and even with Baltimore missing Lamar Jackson, the hosts should be able to cover the spread here.
JOSH ALLEN ANYTIME TD (+129, Caesars)
With blizzard-like conditions predicted to hit Chicago this weekend, it would not be a surprise to see Bills QB Josh Allen to drum up a big total on the ground.
Allen has chalked up 705 rushing yards so far this season, scoring six rushing TDs in the process.
The Bears have allowed the most rushing TDs to quarterbacks in the league this season, with eight TDs being scored by QBs on the ground this year.
With the bad weather likely to force Allen to utilize the ground game, the fifth-year QB could find the endzone this week.
MARQUISE GOODWIN ANYTIME TD (+225, Caesars)
With Tyler Lockett ruled out this weekend, it could be time for Marquise Goodwin to shine in the Seahawks offense.
The veteran wideout has seen at least five targets come his way in his last two starts, finding the endzone in one of those games.
The Chiefs defense has allowed the most passing touchdowns in the NFL this season and while Goodwin will not be the first option on some punters lists, he does hold some good value to score a touchdown here.
