    The final week is always a minefield, given who will play & won't, which teams have something to play for and which ones will try.

    I've survived in a 60+ person, ATS pool, going into this week in a 3 way photo finish for first. You must pick 5 games and the picks are scored 5-3-3-2-2 = Total 15 points. Pool is worth 2k after weekly, etc. prizes.

    Interested, in your own Top 5 picks this week.

    Thanks.

    At first glance, I like KC, Oak, Philly & Indy.

    The GB -3.5 line worries me (even though Likns are 1-5 against Playoff teams).
    N.E. -9.5 is too high as is Atl-7 & Wash-8, IMHO.

    If I knew Newton was going to rest, then Tampa -6.5 is fine.

    Good news is that they don't have to be in until noon Saturday and all picks are blind (in theory).

    Baltimore is one of my top picks this week. Steven Smith Sr. announced this week it was to be his last game. Yes, the Ravens did lose a game the should have won Sunday, but the Bengals are sitting their top tight end and wide receiver again this week. You may want to look at Seattle They are 9-0-1 vs the spread against spread vs. SF. Drawback to this game is if Atlanta has a big lead vs. NO, Seattle may pull starters.
