LEG 1: Browns -3 (-102)

Cleveland Browns @ Houston Texans 1:00PM EST

For this first leg, we're targeting an early-afternoon AFC clash between two playoff hopefuls, the Cleveland Browns and Houston Texans. The Browns are effectively in with a win, while the Texans currently sit at a 51% probability of making the playoffs, with this game being pivotal to that goal. Houston will trot out backup QB Case Keenum as rookie CJ Stround has been ruled out for a second-straight game with a concussion. The Browns have resurrected the career of Joe Flacco, who looks like he'll be starting a playoff game in the year 2023. 

As DimersBOT's highest edge of the weekend, the Browns get a 62.9% probability of covering the three points against the Texans. At -105, we got a sizable 11.7% edge in value. That's a must-bet spot in an NFL spread, as they rarely come with edges higher than 5-7%. Cleveland is a shade better ATS than Houston at an 8-5-1 record. Cleveland's defense hasn't been the otherworldy unit it was to start the year, but with a healthy team all around, they should control this game.

LEG 2: Lions -3 (-110)

Detroit Lions @ Minnesota Vikings 1:00PM EST

We'll switch gears to the NFC, specifically in the north where the Lions are on the cusp of securing their spot in the postseason and the Vikings hope to hold onto their current seven seed. The Lions have only won two games this year where they didn't win by more than three points, including their recent blowout of the Broncos, with an ATS record at the top of the league. The Vikings aren't far behind with a 7-4-3 ATS record, but they're now sending Nick Mullens out under center and he's one bad decision and a mind-melting interception away from throwing any game completely away.

Our model projects Detroit with a 58.9% probability to cover this spread, and we get a solid 6.6% edge in the -110 odds on DraftKings. The Lions will lock up the division with a win and would love to do so on a division rival's home turf. As long as Jared Goff keeps the turnovers at bay, the Lions have the upper hand and superior roster.

LEG 3: Colts +3 (-118)

Indianapolis Colts @ Atlanta Falcons 1:00PM EST

The Indianapolis Colts have been one of this year's biggest surprises. Not because they're 8-5 and in the AFC South race, but because they're doing so in spite of losing rookie standout QB Anthony Richardson, starting Gardner Minshew under center and getting about a half season from Jonathan Taylor. Nevertheless, they've contended with plenty of teams this year and share a tie for the best ATS record in the NFL at 9-5. On paper alone, they have a dream matchup with Atlanta who's covered just four times this season, one of the worst rates in the NFL.

DimersBOT gives Indianapolis a 58.2% probability of covering the +3 spread for a slim but bettable edge of 4.1%. Jonathan Taylor returns to the team after missing a few more games and Michael Pittman has been cleared from the concussion protocol. Atlanta has done a solid job of minimizing scoring from opposing offenses, but also struggle in that department themselves, with the fifth-lowest scoring output this season.

LEG 4: Commanders +3 (-110)

Washington Commanders @ New York Jets 1:00PM EST

We finish off with a battle of the basement as the last place in the NFC East Washington Commanders take on the third place in the AFC East New York Jets. There's no denying it; these teams are bad. They've got potential and some truly talented players, but for a myriad of other reasons, they're struggling this year. Washington shipped off their defense while the Jets have a top-10 unit. On the other side, the Commanders have shown their ability to score in bunches this year while the Jets have the single worst-scoring offense in the entire NFL. 

It feels like a coin toss between these teams, but the 56.5% probability identified by our model suggests it leans stronger in the Commanders' favor. That'll give us a 4.1% edge against the books, more than enough to seize the opportunity with.
