It’s the last call for NFL Picks, and while most of you are probably just waking up from hitting last call at the bars last night, I have been up early looking for any last second NFL Odds value.

Browns vs. Seahawks
We talked about this game some earlier in the week, but with the official practice reports complete by now, we have a better idea of who is in, and who is out for Seattle. We all have seen the Seahawks bouncing back to their Super Bowl contending ways over the last four weeks, and this week against the Browns as huge favorites, they should once again easily add another win to their total this week. However, they may have to do it without some of their key defenders. While it looks like key pass rusher, Michael Bennett is healthy enough to play after putting in a full practice this past Friday, Cam Chancellor is questionable this week after getting knocked out of last week’s game and not practicing all week. While the Seahawks might be getting back DeShawn Shead after he put in a full practice on Friday, the loss of Chancellor was noticeable earlier in the season when he was holding out, and it could limit the Seahawks defense ever so slightly this week at home against the Browns.

This is why I have my eyes on the total of only 43 points. If the middle of the field is open more for Johnny Manziel, the Browns could actually get on the board more in this one than previous teams have done on the road in Seattle. This is the Browns’ Super Bowl pretty much this week, so you know they will be engaged enough to play spoiler this week. With the Seahawks’ offense dominating over the last five games, averaging nearly 35 points per game during that stretch, I have no doubt they can take advantage of one of the worst defenses in the NFL. Take the over as one of your last secondNFL Picks.

Broncos vs. Steelers
After two straight weeks of sub par outings, the Brock Osweiler hype has died down some from the Mile High city, and this week the Broncos have one of their tougher tests of the second half, as they play the surging Steelers in Pittsburgh. The NFL Odds are currently shooting upward for this one, as they have the Steelers as -6 ½ favorites, with a total of 45 ½ points. Some sportsbooks already have the number up to -7, and it looks as if it’s finally time to take a stab at the Steelers in this one. Their offense has proven to still be one of the best in the NFL even with the loss of LeVeon Bell, and this week even against the Broncos’ defense, they should still be able to move the ball through the air.

Pittsburgh simply has too many options for the Broncos to cover, because even if you take away Antonio Brown, the Steelers have more ways to hurt you. We might see some of that this week in Pittsburgh, and while the Broncos’ defense has been incredible this season, I see them allowing a few more touchdowns this week in route to a Steelers win and cover.
