Now that I'm plus-36 for the season, nothing can harm all the happy campers following or actually betting my games.

This week is pure gravy as we conclude the regular season.

The Giants and the Cowboys play for the division and a playoff spot in what will be the end of the Cowboys' dismal season.

Take the Giants and give the 6-7 points required. The Giants will move on, while Dallas will regroup for 2012 with some added free agents and hopefully a good draft.

Denver will make the playoffs if they beat Kansas City. That's a huge if, depending on the up-and-down antics of Tim Tebow and crew.

Willis McGahee is actually the key here. He needs to have a big game if the Broncos are to pull this one off.

I like the Kyle Orton revenge factor this weekend, so go K.C. Kansas City +3.5 is pure gold.

New England is favored by 12.5 against the Bills. Something tells me this game will be closer than that. Take the Bills and the points.

The Vikings are favored by a mere half point versus the depleted Bears. Minnesota will open up the passing game and Ponder will beat the Bears in the last game of the season for both teams.

The Packers have no motivation this weekend and must dodge injuries. Detroit will probably win this game. Detroit is favored by 1.5 points. There is a reason for this. Take the Lions this week.

Tennessee will also beat Houston, who is also unmotivated until the playoffs begin. Tennessee -2.5

The Colts will lose a close one to the future Los Angeles Jaguars, locking up the Andrew Luck pick in the draft.

The 49ers will most likely not cover the 10.5 points this weekend, knowing they have their playoff position locked and loaded. Rams +10.5

I love Miami this week to end the Jets' playoff hopes. The Jets would lose in the first round anyway. Miami -2

New Orleans will dispatch the Panthers and get ready for a home playoff game, but still I like the Panthers with the 7.5 points this weekend.

The Eagles and the Redskins meet; expect a 3-4-point win by Philadelphia. Washington +8.5 is easy this week. 

Atlanta will beat Tampa Bay by plenty this week and secure a wild-card spot, I am sure. Atlanta -13.5

Cincinnati will also win this weekend, as Baltimore will rest plenty of players for half of the game. Cincinnati +2.5

Oakland must win and Denver must lose in order for Oakland to win the division. Oakland will self-destruct to San Diego and end that pipe dream. San Diego +2.5

Seattle's defense will stifle Arizona in the last week to grab one more win. Seattle +3.5

The Steelers will win their last regular-season game versus Cleveland. Steelers -7.5

Good luck to all your teams in the playoffs.
