NFL Wee 14 ATS Betting Picks

Buffalo at Philadelphia
When: Sunday, Dec. 13 at 1:00 pm ET
Odds: Philadelphia -2

Analysis: As if practicing for Buffalo’s Week 14 games, RB LeSean McCoy turned it on against Houston’s defense in Week 13. He rushed for 112 yards on 21 carries. He led a Bills offense that rushed for 187 yards. Philadelphia could be in some trouble in this matchup. None of the players appear to really believe in Kelly’s system. They don’t seem to be trying hard week in and week out. The defense allows 126.6 rushing yards per game on average. Expect McCoy to get some semblance of revenge.

Pick: Buffalo

Detroit at St. Louis
When: Sunday, Dec. 13 at 1:00 pm ET
Odds: St. Louis -1

Analysis: No team in the NFL is hotter than the Detroit Lions right now. Sure, Detroit lost to Green Bay 23 to 27 via a Hail Marry pass in Week 13. But, that won’t matter when the Lions strap on the helmets versus St. Louis in Week 14. St. Louis has fallen apart almost as sadly as Atlanta has. The Rams have lost 5 straight games. The offense hasn’t scored more than 13 points in St. Louis’ last 4 games. Detroit should rock the Rams on Dec. 13.

Pick: Detroit

New Orleans at Tampa Bay
When: Sunday, Dec. 13 at 1:00 pm ET
Odds: Tampa Bay -3.5   

Analysis: The Saints travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers in a meaningless game between 2 NFC South has-beens. But, both teams have played well in spots recently. New Orleans matches up well with the Buccaneers. The Bucs’ biggest flaw on defense is stopping the pass. Opponents average over 240 yards passing against the Buccaneers’ pass defense. The Saints are at their best when QB Drew Brees is slinging the ball downfield. New Orleans should be able to cover this spread on Sunday.  

Pick: New Orleans

NFL Week 14 Game Total Over/Under Betting Picks

San Diego at Kansas City
When: Sunday, Dec. 13 at 1:00 pm ET
Over/Under: 45

Analysis: At first this looks like it should be an over game. San Diego QB Phillip Rivers averages close to 309 passing yards per game. Rivers is able to move the football against any defense. But, San Diego’s offense doesn’t put up a lot of points. For some reason the Chargers can move the ball. They just can’t score points. Kansas City’s defense continues to be one of the best units in all of the NFL. Go under.

Pick: Under

Dallas at Green Bay
When: Sunday, Dec. 13 at 1:00 pm ET

Analysis: If this game were last season, every football handicapper on the planet would back over the total. But, this game is this season. Both offenses in this matchup have been horrible for over a month. Nobody expects Dallas to put up a lot of points when QB Tony Romo is on the bench. But, what about Green Bay? The Packers needed a Hail Mary to beat Detroit on the road on Dec. 3. Before that, Green Bay had scored only 13 points against Chicago at home in a 13 to 17 loss. 

Pick: Under

Minnesota at Arizona
When: Thursday, Dec. 10 at 8:25 pm ET
Over/Under: 46

Analysis: The smart money says that this game should go under. Both teams have decent defenses. But, Minnesota gave up a gargantuan 38 points to Seattle in a 7 to 38 home loss in Week 13. Minnesota’s defense could find the going tough against the best offense in the NFL based on stats. Arizona might be able to score much more than Minnesota is comfortable with. Minnesota will find ways to exploit Arizona’s defense down field for a few scores. Go with the over.

Pick: Over

NFL Week 14 Straight Up Moneyline Betting Picks

San Francisco at Cleveland
When: Sunday, Dec. 13 at 1:00 pm ET
Odds: Cleveland -1.5

Analysis: Which terrible team gets moneyline backing when San Francisco battles Cleveland?  It’s actually easier than many probably think. San Francisco beat Chicago 26 to 20 in overtime in Week 13. There is no way that San Francisco will win 2 games in a row. That, and the fact that QB Johnny Manziel is likely to start for the Browns in Week 14 makes Cleveland an easy pick.  

Pick: Cleveland

Washington at Chicago
When: Sunday, Dec. 13 at 1:00 pm ET
Odds: Chicago -3

Analysis: This could be a pick’em game by Sunday. Both of these teams have the ability to play very well. Both of these teams can also play extremely badly. Neither team really gets the edge in this. The real difference has to do with Washington’s QB, Kirk Cousins. Cousins can play brilliantly at home. But, on the road, he can be absolutely terrible. Cousins’ best QB rating on the road this season was an 89 against Carolina, a 16 to 44 loss, in Week 11. Cousins will be the reason that Chicago wins this straight up.

Pick: Washington

New England at Houston
When: Sunday, Dec. 13 at 8:30 pm ET
Odds: New England -3.5

Analysis: The Texans blew it against Buffalo in a 21 to 30 loss in Week 13. A defense that hadn’t given up more than 17 points to any single team suddenly looked weak and uninspiring. Houston will now try and bounce back against one of the best teams in the NFL, the New England Patriots. As crazy as it sounds, Houston should match up well with New England on Sunday. The best way to control Tom Brady is to get to him before he can read the blitz, or, to get to him with only 4 rushers. Houston can do that. Take a stab and back the Texans on the moneyline.

Pick: Houston
