NFL Week 14 Game Predictions & Underdog Upset Picks

We finally had a losing week in Week 13 going 5-6-2 overall. Our Upset Specials went 1-2 straight up and 2-1 ATS, as we correctly called Kansas City winning outright and managed a cover in an ugly 7-6 loss by Arizona vs. the Jets.

There is one non-lined game on this week’s slate that we are not including, which is San Diego vs. Pittsburgh.

Baltimore (+3) over Washington – This is a tricky game where both teams are in letdown spots, with the Redskins coming off three division wins and the Ravens coming off two Steelers’ games in three weeks.(Expert Picks For This GameBet %)

Kansas City (+6½) over Cleveland – Setting aside the tragedy that inspired the Chiefs last week, they have continued to play hard and the combination of Jamaal Charles and a good defense could be enough to beat a punchless offense. Upset Special #1 (Expert Picks For This GameBet %)

Indianapolis (-5) over Tennessee – To their credit, the Colts have been beating teams they are supposed to beat and they won a game they probably should have lost last week. The Titans were just beaten up by the Texans. (Expert Picks For This GameBet %)

Jacksonville (+3) over NY Jets – We just missed upsetting the Jets last week and we are trying again against a team that should never be favored on the road. Upset Special #2 (Expert Picks For This GameBet %)

Chicago (-3) over Minnesota – Adrian Peterson may be a god, but try as he may, he cannot beat the Bears by himself. Chicago needs this game to keep pace with the Packers. (Expert Picks For This GameBet %)

Carolina (+3) over Atlanta – The Falcons look obvious, but they are at a point now where they can afford to take a breather and start decreasing starters’ minutes, so we’d be reluctant to give points on the road. (Expert Picks For This GameBet %)

Philadelphia (+7) over Tampa Bay – This spread is practically right at where we think this result will end up, and like the old adage goes, “when in doubt, take the points”. (Expert Picks For This GameBet %)

Buffalo (-3) over St. Louis – The Rams had a letdown after tying the 49ers in the first meeting, losing at home to the Jets. What’s going to happen on the road after beating the Niners? (Expert Picks For This GameBet %)



Dallas (+3) over Cincinnati – Demarco Murray is back and he rushed for 83 yards in his return. The Cowboys are a dangerous team again as long as he progresses normally. Upset Special #3 (Expert Picks For This GameBet %)

San Francisco (-10) over Miami – This looks like a lot of points, but Coach Jim Harbaugh is probably breathing fire after the Niners lost to the Rams. (Expert Picks For This GameBet %)

New Orleans (+5) over NY Giants – This could be the toughest call of the week. The Saints’ season is over, but they have actually displayed an NFL defense in recent weeks and we don’t quite trust the Giants as decided favorites right now. (Expert Picks For This GameBet %)

Arizona (+10) over Seattle – The Seahawks just won a huge road game at Chicago, but is their offense good enough to give double-digits? Arizona’s defense still plays hard. (Expert Picks For This GameBet %)

Detroit (+6½) over Green Bay – The Lions have made an art form of leading games in their entirety until the final play. At least this time they would cover if it happens again. (Expert Picks For This GameBet %)

Houston (+3) over New England – Tom Brady does not like getting beat up and the Texans lead the NFL in sacks. It is time for a changing of the guard in the AFC. (Expert Picks For This GameBet %)
