What we learned in Week 14 NFL betting

What a difference a week makes for the Eagles. Philly not only lost again, but they lost their MVP for the season. Wow. That said, I believe that Nick Foles will be more than adequate. But the good news is that Minnesota lost. So we could see the Saints or even the Rams take the reigns come playoff time. The NFC is wide open, folks. I can’t call any team a football betting favorite to reach the Super Bowl.

2017 NFL Week 14 Betting Recap

-The Bills showed determination and the ability to enjoy snow. But beyond that I don’t trust them moving forward; especially if Tyrod is hurt.

-The Packers are excited to still be alive with Aaron Rodgers coming back. But there are obvious holes on both the offensive amd defensive lines. Can ARod really cover that many issues?

-New Orleans will be really upset after a close loss to the Falcons. I feel like Atlanta is missing a spark or that ability to shift into an extra gear. The Saints are still my pick to win the division.

-Where was this Broncos team the last eight weeks? This win over the Jets just hurt their drafting position. It means Nothing.

-Boy, Cincy really mailed it in versus the Bears. I think that previous week loss to Pittsburgh broke their spirit. Meanwhile, Chicago might be slowly figuring it out.

-Baltimore’s offemse is picking it up, which is a great sign. But did the Steelers offense expose them a bit? We will find out. I believe that they’ll rebound nicely. As for Pittsburgh, they look damn good.

-Kansas City saved their season versus Oakland and turned back the clock to earlier in the season. But let’s see them do this against a top defense. I am not sold.

-Jimmy Garoppolo looks like the guy to build around in San Fran. They look like a different team right now.

-The Chargers are on a roll. How do you bet against a team that has gone 7-2 in their last 9 games?

-Jacksonville won gritty playoff-type game and proved to me that they could be dangerous come postseason time. Not many weaknesses.

-That Titans loss was sad. I think the clock has struck midnight on this sloppy but winning team. Do not trust them.

-Detroit won a tough road game and is still alive. But I just don’t think they have the D to stop good offensea moving forward.

-Dak got the job done in a game he had to win. But let’s see him do that verus a top tier team. Dallas is no more than a nine-win team right now.

-Miami has moved the ball with Kenyon Drake as RB. Could they win out and sneak in? Doubtful. But it’s still possible. And New England? Well, they are bound to shake it off.

-The Rams are not going to fade, folks. They might be a year away from Super Bowl contender purely due to experience. But I have been wrong before.
