I called these final 2 weeks “treacherous,” and last week lived up to that billing. The picks were 0-2 for a 3-unit loss. The tally is now 5-6 against the spread and 9 units up vs. 9 units down.

We try to end the regular season on a profitable note by backing two teams that will likely just miss notching the final wildcard spot in their respective conferences.

Browns at Steelers -7

Lazy Line: Steelers -10. Steelers a 1-unit play.

49ers at Cardinals +1

Lazy Line: Cardinals -3. Cards are a 2-unit play.
