Mark My Words:

Here are the pro and college lines that I would put money on, and why:

With playoff bound teams resting their starters this week, most of these lines are up in the air. Accordingly, I prefer some more creative bets, like a four time parlay including Philly, Jacksonville, Detroit and Washington, as opposed to traditional straight up bets this week.

Tennessee -4 over SEATTLE - Seattle has nothing to play for, while Tennessee will try all they can to get Chris Johnson 2,000 rushing yards and the NFL single season yards from scrimmage record. Seattle's run defense struggled last week, so I look for Tennessee to run away in this one.

San Francisco -7 over ST. LOUIS - Not only are the Rams are starting their third string quarterback and without running back Steven Jackson, but they also have no incentive to win this game in order to retain the #1 pick in the NFL Draft and take Ndamukong Suh.

Texas +4 over Alabama - I'm not sold on Alabama's offense. Texas has an experienced quarterback in Colt McCoy, who I think will lead the Long Horns to an outright victory. Prediction: Texas 27- Alabama 17
