MINTY BETS: We just wrapped up week 16 of the NFL, and we haven't even seen lines for week 17 yet. So here are our blind reactions in 3, 2, 1. Cardinals at Cowboys, Cowboys, minus 5 and 1/2.

JARRED QUAY: Cowboys, minus 5 and 1/2, is the best bet I can put right now, just because they're playing the best football. They're playing Super Bowl football right now. Meanwhile, the Cardinals have lost like four of their last five. They're not playing good football right now.

I think they're what the Steelers were last year, this year. Yes, they'll make it to the playoffs, but just not-- they're too beat up right now.

Without DeAndre Hopkins, I think Kyler Murray struggles. He can't really see over the line as well, to get underneath crossing routes. So without an outside dominant receiver, he's just struggling a little bit more. He can run, but I just think this Cowboys team is play too good of football. Give me the Cowboys, minus 5.

MINTY BETS: Oh, I'm going to have to push back on the Cowboys now. I bet them two weeks in a row and they've been good to me, but I think this is a spot where the Cardinals bounced back here. They're catching points and I always love betting on Arizona, plus the points.

It was hard to find them as underdogs this season, and they feel that because they won seven in a row at the beginning of the season, and then they've accumulated like five losses after that. But I really like the Cardinals here, plus the points, and to possibly upset the Cowboys.

- Yes, sir.

JARRED QUAY: Kansas City Chiefs at the Cincinnati Bengals. Chiefs, minus 4 and 1/2.

MINTY BETS: Mmm, everything just sways me to the Bengals here, but I think the Chiefs are going to blow them out in this game. I mean, their offense has been rolling, their defense have stepped it up, but I'm still wary of betting on the Chiefs. But my lean is strongly on Chiefs, minus 4 and 1/2.

JARRED QUAY: Why are you worried? All right, let's be honest. The Bengals beat the Ravens, who had everybody out. But before then, they played a very-- they played a bunch of close games. They haven't really been great. Their offensive line is not the greatest and they're going against what, I believe, is one of the best defensive lines in the NFL, since Chris Jones came back. I think the Chiefs rolling here. Yes, they're on the road. That's the only thing that worries me. But other than that, I think this Chiefs team is dominant.

- You feel me? You feel me?

MINTY BETS: Rams at Ravens. Rams minus 3 and 1/2.

JARRED QUAY: I ain't going to lie to you. My Ravens are beat up. We don't have any defensive backs. We're going against the Rams team that has some pretty solid receivers, with Cooper Kupp and Odell Beckham jr. I'm not saying to bet against us, but I'm not saying I'm strongly confident in betting for us.

With that being my answer, take you to some line reveal, take it. I'm actually thinking that Vegas is respecting the Ravens with that line. So you know what? Maybe we can fight and I hope we need this. We need it for the playoffs.

MINTY BETS: This one's tricky because I feel like the Rams should be favored a little bit more against this really, really, banged up Ravens team. So I'm a little wary. I am leaning Rams, minus 3 and 1/2 here, but I think that's kind of a disrespectful line to LA. But yeah, I would lean Rams.

JARRED QUAY: It's a West Coast team traveling to the East Coast. The Ravens do play amazing at home.


JARRED QUAY: And if we can get one of our quarterbacks, we can score points. It's just one of those things that-- our DBs are beat up, so I was just like, who's going to cover Odell Beckham? Who's going to cover Cooper Kupp? I mean, we just got to hope that Matt Stafford has one of those terrible games and he just-- you know, he's due for it, but-- come on, Ravens. I'm nervous for it, though. I'm nervous.

- Let's play some football.
