We’re at the halfway point of the NFL season, where every game means something.

Caddie Joe Skovron has done his homework and has made an educated guess at the outcome of five, key match ups.

Here’s a look at how Joe sees it all unfolding this weekend…

Philadelphia at Jacksonville
Spread: Philly -3

Skovron’s Pick: Jacksonville
Why: The Jags are struggling but this roster is loaded. The majority of bets are on Philly right now, so they have moved the line. I think the Jags get the ship back on course in London. Duuuuuuval!

Cleveland at Pittsburgh
Spread: Pittsburgh -8.5

Skovron’s Pick: Cleveland
Why: Eighty-two percent of the money on Pittsburgh has moved the line. Cleveland lost another heartbreaker last week but other than the Charger game, their games are tight. I like them to keep this one closer than 8.5.

Baltimore at Carolina
Spread: Baltimore -1.5

Skovron’s Pick: Baltimore
Why: Sharps moved this line quite a bit. I’m going with them again.

Green Bay at LA Rams
Spread: LA Rams -9

Skovron’s Pick: Green Bay
Why: I think the Rams are the best team in football. Loaded with talent and really well coached. That said, they have only covered one spread in their last four games and the sharp money is on GB. I’ll take Rodgers and the points.

New Orleans at Minnesota
Spread: Minnesota -1

Skovron’s Pick: Minnesota
Why: Two good teams. I can see this going either way. I’m taking the Saints and the point.
