Miami Heat vs. Brooklyn Nets
Friday, January 19, 2018, 7:30 pm ET
The Nets struggle against quality big men, and Miami has a few of them led by Hassan Whiteside. While the Nets have played a lot of close games lately, the fact remains they’ve lost five straight at home. Back Miami to make it eight straight road wins over the Nets, and cover the small number.

Washington Wizards vs. Detroit Pistons
Friday, January 19, 2018, 8:00 pm ET
Friday the Pistons host the Washington Wizards in an Eastern Conference battle. Detroit will be aiming to end a three-game losing streak in a nationally televised game. One can expect the Wizards to come in with much more defensive aggression. In their latest loss against the Hornets, they surrendered 77 first-half points en route to a season high 133. Still, the value lies with the home Pistons who are 13-6 at home and worth the risk as the home underdog.READ MORE: Partial Collapse Of 2 Homes In West Oak Lane Under Investigation

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. New England Patriots
Sunday, January 21, 2018, 3:05 pm ET
NEW ENGLAND -9
New England hosts Jacksonville this weekend and everyone will be on the Jaguars’ train after their impressive win against the Steelers. But Pittsburgh’s defense was completely non-existent, and the Pats have the preparation needed to stop this Jaguars’ running game. The Patriots will score, we know that, and it’s just a matter of whether you trust the defense to hold its own. I say it does. Lay the points.

Minnesota Vikings vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Sunday, January 21, 2018, 6:40 pm ET
I understand why the Vikings have to be favored here, but if I can get the hook on the Eagles, I’m definitely taking that side. Homefield matters, and the Eagles have now given up 10 points or less in six of their nine home games this year. The Vikings can also have issues at times moving the ball away from home, and their defense surrendered 23 points or more four times on the road during the regular season while not allowing more than 19 at home. If the typical road Vikings show up in Philadelphia, the Eagles have a great chance of keeping the margin within a field goal and potentially advancing to the Super Bowl.
