Best match bet
New York Jets to beat Denver
The New York Jets were the pre-season favourites to be the team to post the fewest number of wins this term, but they look to have a great chance of eclipsing the tally of five they posted last year.

A strong end to the season could even see them into the playoffs and they have a fine opportunity to boost their chances when they head to Denver, who look to be in freefall.

The Broncos have had problems offensively in the last few years and they were hardly prolific scorers when they won the Super Bowl two years ago.

However, their strong defence has been unable to keep them in games this season and despite the fact that a collapse from Kansas City has turned the AFC West into a competitive affair, Denver are still well off the pace.

The Broncos won three of their first four matches and those successes against the LA Chargers, Dallas and Oakland hinted at a potentially successful campaign. But they have scored more than 20 points just once since then and that was when they went over for two garbage-time touchdowns in a 51-23 loss at Philadelphia.

The Jets have claimed just one victory on the road, but they should be buoyed by last week's 38-31 win over the Chiefs. 

Best points bet
Over 39 points in Minnesota at Carolina
Atlanta's victory over New Orleans on Thursday has put the pressure squarely on Carolina's shoulders, so expect them to adopt a positive approach at home to Minnesota, who would be number-one seeds in the NFC if the season ended this week.

The Panthers fluffed their lines against the Saints last week but they still scored more than 20 points and have matched that figure in their last four outings.

Quarterback Cam Newton tends to bounce back from disappointing performances, especially at the Bank of America Stadium, and Carolina need to get on the front foot against Minnesota.

The Vikings possess one of the toughest defences in the league and have won their last eight matches, but these are two teams with plenty to play for so the low points line may prove to be a modest one.

Best player bet
J Williams to score a touchdown for Green Bay
Green Bay are counting down the days until quarterback Aaron Rodgers returns from a broken collarbone, but it would be no surprise if rookie running back Jamaal Williams has a big game against winless Cleveland.

The Packers have Brett Hundley standing in for their star player and the emphasis is likely to be on them doing nothing stupid as they attempt to inflict a 13th defeat of the season for the Browns.

That suggests Williams could see a lot of the ball again and he recorded his first 100-yard rushing game in last week's 26-20 win over Tampa Bay, when he also scored a touchdown.

He could have another productive day against a Cleveland defence who have suffered plenty of injuries and he looks a good price at 13-10 to go over for a score.
