    If you live in Nevada, Oregon, Montana or Delaware, you're in luck. Otherwise, go to Canada or Europe and get your bet on for the NFL weekend! All games are Sunday unless otherwise noted.

    1. Green Bay at Seattle (-7.5) — Aaron Rodgers struggled against Dallas last week when the Cowboys were applying pressure. The Seahawks are going to pressure Rodgers and not pull back, and they're going to do it with a lot better defense than the Cowboys' had last week. The Seahawks don't lose at home, and they've already beaten the Packers once at home this year when they took them out behind the woodshed to open the NFL season. This figures to be a relatively low-scoring game with the Seahawks scoring a double-digit win to go back to the Super Bowl to defend their crown.

    2. Indianapolis (+6.5) at New England — Not positive the Colts pull the upset at Foxboro, but I think it'll be close. Andrew Luck can carry a team, and the Colts defense has shined in recent weeks in wins over the Bengals and much more impressively, on the road at Denver. Will Tom Brady pass the torch to Luck, or will it be Brady and the Pats looking to win another title after a 10-year hiatus.

    Last week: 3-1. 2014 playoffs: 6-2
