NFL odds, picks, schedule, how to watch and stream: Expert picks against the ...

The AFC's top seeded Chiefsput away the Colts on Saturday before the Rams ran for 272 yards against the Cowboys to reach the NFC title game.

On Sunday, the Chargers and Patriots will battle on CBS for a spot in the AFC Championship Game, then the Eagles will hope the Nick Foles magic continues in a showdown with the Saints .

Micah Roberts has worked in the Las Vegas sportsbook industry for 20 years, including a 13-year run as Station Casinos' book director.

A West Coast-based analyst who's won numerous handicapping contests, Josh Nagel has his finger on the Eagles pulse: All-time at SportsLine, he's 8-2 in against the spread picks involving the defending Super Bowl champions.

I think New Orleans and Drew Brees are better equipped to take advantage of the Eagles makeshift secondary than Mitch Trubisky and the Bears were, particularly at home in the Superdome.

Which is one of the biggest reasons I don't want to touch this spread, because I think the Eagles are good enough to cover, but I don't want to bet against the Saints at home in a playoff game.
