The push for the playoffs is officially on and Week 14 features a number of matchups that will have major post-season implications. On Thursday night, the 6-6 Chicago Bears are still trying to crawl their way back into playoff contention, but are pegged as field-goal home underdogs as they host the Dallas Cowboys. Dallas is also 6-6 and leads the NFC East, though this club can’t let up now either. More than three-quarters of early bets like the Cowboys to cover -3.
On Sunday, some of the best teams in the league square off as San Francisco 49ers visit the New Orleans Saints and the Kansas City Chiefs face the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium. The 49ers and Saints each sit at 10-2. Oddsmakers opened with the Saints and -3 and they now sit at -2.5 with 70 percent of the betting action backing San Francisco. In the big AFC tilt, it’s been a long time since the betting public didn’t heavily support the Patriots – especially when they’re at home. This week, more than 80 percent of bets are backing the Chiefs to cover as 3-point underdogs. The Pats had opened at -3.5 before the line shifted.
On Sunday Night Football, the Seattle Seahawks were set as 2.5-point road favourites at the Los Angeles Rams although that point spread has moved as well. It’s currently at Seattle -1 and the Seahawks are Week 14’s most popular bet with better than 90 percent of early wagers on their side.
To finish off the week, the 5-7 Philadelphia Eagles try to snap a three-game losing streak on Monday Night Football as they host the New York Giants. The Eagles are just 4-8 against the spread this season and action is split for this matchup.
The Milwaukee Bucks are the hottest team in the Association as they take a 12-game winning streak into Wednesday’s action. The Bucks, who are tied with the Los Angeles Lakers for the best record in the league at 18-3, average 120.8 points per game while giving up 108.4. However, with oddsmakers jacking their point spreads, the Bucks are only 10-11 against the spread.
The Boston Bruins continue to look like the best team in the league as they carry an eight-game winning streak into Wednesday’s action. The B’s rank third overall in offensive output per game and rank first overall in total goals allowed – that’s the recipe to win a lot of hockey games. However, it’s the Winnipeg Jets who have moved into the top spot in the league money standings. The Jets have earned 9.25 units for their supporters, with 9.14 units of those earnings coming in their road games. It’s a similar story with the Edmonton Oilers. They sit fifth in money standings but you’re going to have to look for those prices when they’re on the road. Of the 5.51 units the Oilers have earned, 5.34 have come on the road.
