Joe Golden: the Chiefs, Rams and Packers look hot this weekend

Will the Kansas City Chiefs rise to the occasion again on Sunday?

Chicago sports pundit Joe Golden gives his views on this weekend’s NFL matches

Here are your NFL picks for Week 13:

We’ve been riding the KC Chiefs all year – and they have rewarded us by going 9-2 against the spread.

This week they are favored by 14.5 against Oakland which seems a bit much, but Oakland has lost by that much in over half their games and will face a top offense – so it’s KC again this week.

No team has been able to slow the LA Rams – their only loss was to a Drew Brees who was en fuego that day. They will stay hot themselves and run circles around the Detroit Lions.

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers always look better after looking their worst – I expect them to move up and down the field on Arizona and win by two touchdowns.

The Packers should score well this week and the OVER of 44.5 isn’t much of a hurdle.

Cleveland and Houston have been steadily improving on offense and should surpass their OVER of 47.5.

Therefore, parley the Green Bay- Arizona match and the Cleveland-Houston match for the OVERS this week.

Monday Night:

The late game is one you might not watch if another was available.

The Eagles have a Super Bowl hangover and Washington has injuries everywhere.

Look for the Philadelphia Eagles to out-struggle the Redskins in what is, in reality, an elimination game for the playoffs.

Now you out there have no elimination games, so if you feel lucky this week – do something about it.
