NFL Week 14 Predictions ATS

 

Arizona Cardinals (-8) over Minnesota Vikings  The Vikings got blown out at home against Seattle last week. Seattle stopped Adrian Peterson and made Teddy Bridgewater throw the ball, which didn’t work out.  I think Arizona comes out and does the same, plus the Vikings are plagued with injuries on defense.

 

Pittsburgh Steelers (+3) over Cincinnati Bengals – Absolutely love the Steelers in a must win game here. If the Steelers want to make the playoffs, they need to finish at least 3-1 in their next 4 games. Their offense is crazy good with Martavis Bryant and Antonio Brown at wide receiver. Only thing that scares me is that the Bengals are 10-1-1 against the spread this year!

 

Philadelphia Eagles (+1) over Buffalo Bills – Both teams coming off big wins to keep their playoff hopes alive. The more impressive one would be the Eagles going into Foxboro and beating the Patriots. I think this comes down to an Eagles field goal on the last drive. I like the home team here.

 

Carolina Panthers (-7.5) over Atlanta Falcons – I think Cam Newton has finally surpassed Tom Brady for the MVP Race. The Panthers can clinch a first round bye for the playoffs with a win. Also, Carolina is 5-0 ATS at home.

 

Cleveland Browns (-1) over San Francisco 49ers – Johnny Manziel will get the start at home against a Niners team that just pulled off the upset against the Bears. I can’t bet on Blaine Gabbert on the road.  Watch for the Browns defense to make some plays and have some extra motivation to back up Johnny Football.

 

Washington Redskins (+3.5) over Chicago Bears – Washington showed how bad their offense is on Monday night. The Bears showed how bad their team is when they lost to the Niners at home! If the Niners can beat the Bears in Chicago then I think the Skins can too.

 

Detroit Lions (+1) over St. Louis Rams  – The Rams offense has been absolutely atrocious. Their defense hasn’t been what it should be. This line seems strange to me.

 

Kansas City Chiefs (-10) over San Diego Chargers – It’s so hard to see Philip Rivers struggle so much. I could see the Chargers keeping it somewhat close at halftime, but the Chiefs have been red hot. Alex Smith hasn’t thrown an interception in 300 attempts. Chiefs 27-16.

 

Indianapolis Colts (N/A) over Jacksonville Jaguars – The line isn’t out yet because of so many injuries to both teams. Whatever the spread is, I’m going with the Colts. Even though the Steelers blew them out, they’ll be able to control the clock and get the win against a really bad Jaguars team.

 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-3.5) over New Orleans Saints – Jameis Winston has officially got my vote for rookie of the year. His run on 3rd and 18 in the fourth quarter was the highlight of the game. Bucs have an outside chance of getting a wildcard spot. Marc Ingram is dealing with a shoulder injury that could be season ending. The Saints defense might be the worst ever.

 

New York Jets (-7) over Tennessee TitansThe Tennessee Titans have struggled against elite defenses this season, and they have one of the lowest scoring offenses in the entire league.  Titans have nothing to play for beside draft pick stock.  Jets 23-13.

 

Seattle Seahawks (N/A) over Baltimore Ravens – This line isn’t out yet because the Ravens might start Jimmy Clausen. This game will be over by halftime. Hawks win by three touchdowns.

 

Green Bay Packers (-7) over Dallas Cowboys  – The Cowboys might be the only team in history to be 4-8 and still have a shot to win the division. The Packers have only scored 29 combined points in their last two games at home. They’re due for a break out game.

 

Denver Broncos (-7.5) over Oakland Raiders – The Broncos are 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS in their previous 10 meeting with the Raiders. The Raiders have gone back to being the normal disappointing Raiders. The Broncos now have a chance to get a first round bye after the Patriots lost two in a row.  

 

New England Patriots (-3) over Houston Texans – The Patriots haven’t lost three straight games since 2002. I would throw my house on the Patriots.  

 

New York Giants (-1) over Miami Dolphins – The Giants still have a shot at winning the NFC Least, despite blowing 10-point lead against the Jets. The Dolphins are 1-3 ATS at home this year. Odell Beckham Jr. will have a monster game.

 

Last week: 10-5-1

Overall ATS: 100-89-3

Teaser Pick of the Week Overall: 7-6

Teaser Pick of the Week (10 points): New York Giants +9

  Kansas City Chiefs PK

  Eagles +11
