We have actually made it to Week 14 and the race is on for those coveted playoff spots. Here’s some interesting betting lines you need to check out:
Indianapolis Colts @ Las Vegas Raiders
We have a big game for the wildcard this weekend in the AFC with the Colts at the Raiders. Indianapolis is a 3 point favorite and the total is at 51 and a half. I’m willing to bet that Phillip Rivers gives us a show on Sunday after Jon Gruden talked his trash talking from the sidelines over the years. Who isn’t entertained with some trash talking? That makes this one even spicier! The Colts are pretty decent on both side of the ball. They do have some injuries on the offensive line but the Raiders defense has been struggling this year and they nearly handed the Jets their first win of the season last week. Colts covered a 3 point spread last week so that makes it easier for me to pick Indy to cover this one as well.
Kansas City Chiefs @ Miami Dolphins
Next up we have Kansas City at Miami. The Chiefs come in favored by 7 and the total is 50 and a half. This is interesting because Miami has covered the spread 8 times in their last 10 games. They’re defense is good, they’re winning the turnover battle so they may be able to limit Mahomes a bit but I don’t think its enough to take them down. I’m not sure I want to touch the spread, but I do like the under on this one.
Washington Football Team @ San Francisco 49ers
This last line I absolutely love. If I had to make one bet this weekend it would be this..Washington heads to the 49ers’ Arizona location as a 3 point underdog. SF opened up as a 4.5-point favorite against the Washington Football Team…but it’s no wonder that spread has gone down considering how Washington handed an undefeated Steelers team their first L on the road. Washington is on a roll, they’ve won three in a row, Defense looks good and 49ers are banged up with injuries….Even though the number has shrunk, I’m still picking Washington and the points.
